Newcastle United season review 2011/12 video part one (Part two below).

You tube video masters, Ross & Affy, AKA “Gallowgatetooners1” have asked us if we would be interested in posting their excellent video review of Newcastle United’s 2011/12 season on here and I had no hesitation. I saw the first part a while back and was looking forward to the second part anyway, so here it is!

As well as this, friend of the site, Ian, has also produced an excellent interactive guide to Newcastle United’s season too, which you can see by following the link above.

Many, many thanks to Ross, Affy, Ian and Jimbob for producing such great stuff! (more…)

The end of the season is finally upon us. A season in which defied all expectations. A season where even the most optimistic of Toon fans would have struggled to predict what would be.
