Newcastle is a â€œone-teamâ€ city and that team is The Toon. Itâ€™s a team with huge and passionate support, on match day it seems as though everyone in the city is wearing a replica shirt and a black-and-white football scarf.
The Magpies are the eighth most decorated club in English football. However the days of winning trophies are not even memories for todayâ€™s Geordies â€“ the club has not won a major domestic trophy since 1955. But if there were awards for great supporters, talismanic Number 9s, beloved managers or embarrassing Directors then The Toon's trophy cabinet would be bulging.
Kevin Keegan was adored by supporters as a player and the respect was mutual, he once said that the Geordie fans had â€œsupported the club through thin and thin.â€ As a manager he continued the love affair while creating the most exciting team in England - narrowly losing the title race in 1996.
While Keegan was turning the Magpies into the most loved team in the country and filling the back pages, Directors Freddy Shepherd and Douglas Hall were embarrassing them on the front pages â€“ the men caught out by The News of The Worldâ€™s fake sheikh boasting of ripping-off supporters and referring to girls in the city as â€œdogs.â€
After Keegan left both Kenny Dalglish and Ruud Gullit failed to make a serious title challenge and the club turned to a great and proud Geordie â€“ Sir Bobby Robson. Despite guiding The Toon from the bottom of the league to consecutive third, fourth and fifth places he was dismissed by Freddy Shepherd three weeks into the 2004/05 season. Sir Bobby Robson remains held in the highest esteem by the club's supporters and by football fans throughout the world.
