London Calling...

I'm going to Fulham tomorrow to watch Newcastle, apparently we haven't kept a clean sheet there since 1946 AND I haven't seen us score a goal there yet so normally I wouldn't be hopeful BUT I heard a story yesterday that makes me think we'll be alright.

In 1969 Newcastle United won the Fairs Cup (forerunner to the UEFA cup) and all was hunky dory in geordieland, a supporter (who's name I don't know) and prominent shareholder who had followed them for many years home and away died soon after but the club failed to mention him in any programme notes or official publication.

His wife, who was some kind of spritual medium type, was a bit miffed by this and put a curse on the club - Newcastle have won nothing since - and to think I thought I was the jinx, being born in 1970!

Anyway, last week she lifted it...on the very day that we beat Birmingham City with a last minute winner - let the good times roll!

Yeah, scouser always blaming something or someone else for the bad things that happen to them. It's just an analogy, i wasn't suggesting you'd developed a shit sense of humour, started stealing off your own or got a dodgy perm (you wish). Enjoy the game hope, you win.
(Not a brummie by the way, it's the black country...don't you know)
