Unlucky for some ?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 At Glanford park
And the City Ground
Our lack of direction
Surely found.
On loan players, lacking guile
Commitment and passion
Now out of style.
Thirteen years to the day
Since our finest hour
Thanks to Ginola’s skills
And Shearer’s power
We thrashed Man Utd Five goals to nil
Mouth watering fare
We talk of still.
With our club now being ruined
And it’s the fans who suffer most
In 96′ we dined on caviar
These days it’s beans on toast.

Notes

It’s hard to believe but 13 years ago to the day Newcastle Utd beat Man Utd 5-0 at St James’ Park, we lost at Scunthorpe in the championship, and deserved to lose. Bleak times indeed for the ‘Toon Army’
