Your name and av are quite appropriate for some of the people on this forum <laugh>

Stick around and you'll find out why <gent>

I think it’ll go to members sale as it’s a weeknight if you’ve got a membership.

Hello , life long Toon fan now living in Scotland after moving away from the north east a few years ago.... Cant wait for the match on Saturday lets get another 3 point lads and keep the run going....
Welcome to the most bipolar football forum in the world. Today we are excited about a 3 game winning streak whilst simultaneously planning on getting rid of the manager and boycotting the club for losing too much.

Welcome to the forum!

Just for future reference; I'm not bipolar. I was medically tested and the doctor said I was just an opinionated and objectionable prick.

Hello, I’m a Glasgow Rangers season ticket holder, with a soft spot for Newcastle. Grew up admiring Kevin Keegan’s team and always felt I could relate to the loyalty the toon army show their team, very similar to the Rangers support. I’m going to my first Newcastle match v West Ham next weekend and I’m absolutely buzzing about it. I would appreciate if anyone could recommend pubs I should try prematch, or even just places I should visit in the city, as I’m going to be making a weekend of it with my other half. I’m a massive Auf Wiesersehen Pet fan too, so I have a feeling the place will be like a 2nd home to me! :). Cheers

Hi im Suzanne bt just call me Suzie. All my family love the Toon Army . Great day out at the footie.

Welcome <ok>

My uncle and cousin are both Hearts ST holders, I've seen a few games at Tynecastle but not for about 15-20 years now.

I'm actually coming to Edinburgh for a stag do Friday to Monday.
Was a season ST holder at tynecastle for years but very rarely go now, i prefer an away day with hearts than going to tynecastle.

If you are going to this stag do in a big group split up before heading into the pubs, they dont like big groups coming in at once.
Cheers, there's 12 of us so we'll walk in in groups of 4 or 6 <ok>

Had to tell the hostel we're staying at that it's a 30th birthday weekend as they don't accept stag dos.

But thanks for the welcome!

Burnley certainly won't finish anywhere near P7 this season IMO. Fantastic achievement last season but very much a one off. With higher expectations this season and the Europa League I think they'll be bottom half. 7 of their wins last season were 1-0, they very much grind them out and can't count on that again this season.

The lack of funds in Scotland is definitely a barrier and it's tough to see how anyone can break the Celtic stranglehold. Rangers may one day get back to former glories but it's not going to happen overnight and will need sustained investment. It's a shame really as if Celtic, Rangers, Aberdeen could compete on a similar level it'd make the SPL infinitely more appealing.

I'm a craft beer snob so I'd head to the Wylam place!

Hi Guys - New member here, first post!

I'm an Aberdeen fan from North East Scotland, my mother and her family are from the Newcastle area, Widdrington & Morpeth, so have had connections to N.E England. Always kept a look out for the Toon score first when checking English results.

Anyway, I'm down visiting and managed to get a ticket for the spurs game - getting quite excited now. Only been to 1 Newcastle game in my life, which coincidentally was against Spurs. That game still sticks in my head even though it was circa 13-14 years ago! Speed and Shearer scored then Nikos Dabizas came flying in with a diving header in own goal of the century haha.

Wish you all well for the season ahead, hopefully get a win to start the season off!
Hopefully get a similar result on Sunday then <cheers>

I didn't see Aberdeen v Burnley, how did they fair over 2 legs? They've been best of the rest in Scotland over recent seasons but hard to judge exactly where that puts them I guess.
Haha hopefully!

I wasn't too impressed with Burnley to be honest. Our game at home I thought they didn't look nothing special until they took Volkes on and fairly changed it. Away from home we were up against it but they still couldn't beat us over 2 90 minutes games - Can't see them getting Europa spot this season.

It's hard to say where Aberdeen are - we have a good, well organised team for our league but we are operating at a fraction of the budget that is on offer down south. Teams in Championship or even League 1 are spending more than us on wages with hope to get to a bigger, more beneficial league. We are already the highest we can be, which is a shame really. We can't compete over a season against Celtic, ran them close but not close enough.

Edit to add - the people of Burnley were the most friendliest bunch/group of people I have ever met. Hoping from the same on Saturday !!! Anyone got recommendations for decent boozer pre and post match? <cheers>
