Nme We Took The Fulwell, Next Stop The Kop. Liverpool Away 1985

    To me the two seasons Kevin Keegan played for us were amazing, the atmosphere, the crack and even the football. Now we were back in the first division I hoped for bigger and better. I have to say however the first division mobs were disappointing. Even though most teams now brought a few hundred to Newcastle, still no one came looking apart from the usual Chelsea and West Ham ....

Nme Man City Away

  By the end of 83-84 season the NME was huge, at the centre was still a well organised core but really it was anyone who turned up on the day. We often had several hundred travelling away including several younger lads who were still at school. The older lads often slipped them a few quid and while we headed for the bars they went walkabout causing mischief and reporting back on any ....

N.m.e. Scotland V England 1984

  1984 was a brilliant time to be a Newcastle fan, the NME had 500 regular away travellers and we dominated every town and city we visited, but the icing on the cake was that we had an exciting team, playing brilliant football with the likes of Keegan, Beardsley and Waddle taking us to promotion back to the top and we defo didn’t want the season to end. So much to our relief, along ....

Nme : Barnsley Away

  The best player I ever seen is Peter Beardsley. I will always remember the first time i seen him, he was introduced to the crowd at half time away at Barnsley.   We travelled down by train arriving early. The bizzies weren’t too pleased to see over 100 of us changing train at Leeds and obviously alerted Barnsley police. We were met at the station by an army of them. They ....

Nme : Chelsea Away 1983

  Mention hooliganism in the 1980’s and people will automatically think of Chelsea. They were never out of the newspapers and were infamous worldwide. We decided we would go down and give them a good go in London which no-one seemed to ever do. We travelled down by train early Saturday morning and I was a bit worried that we only had about 100 lads. We arrived in London and went to ....

Nme : The Boro Joeys

  In Kevin Keegan’s two seasons playing for us the mackem’s were in division one, so I suppose our derby was Boro, but we didn’t give them the same status they give us. Leeds was our real big match. We always dismissed Boro as a kind of joke. Anyway, this was the beginning of the casual era and one of the first “mobs” to turn trendy was Boro, slightly ahead of ....

Read What The Fans Have To Say


My first real season as a mag, we were relegated,i was raised on crap football played in front of probably the most passionate, and possibly the most violent fans in England. No one ever came to Newcastle then, but away matches were guaranteed mindless violence. It seemed normal to me, the way it had always been, coming from a small Durham town to Newcastle, I entered a different world, and ....
