We have just proved our point
And on Easter Monday
How we rocked the joint
By kick off time at a quarter to eight
And Forty Eight thousand packed in Gallowgate
With promotion by then already complete
Outside Shearer’s bar fans danced in the street.
One heaving mass, a Black’n White sea
From the Bigg Market stretching doon to the Quay
A Bank Holiday party of passion and pride
When football fever swept over Tyneside.



How on earth no one came in to buy this football club
when Mike Ashley put up ‘The for sale’ signs last year
beggers belief, Anyone who gets this club right has a licence
to print money. Queues outside the club’s store, Replica shirts everywhere you looked, Throw in fanatical fans and a fantastic stadium and you have NUFC.
