Memories first… I first started going to the match with my dad during the 1980/81 season, we went to a couple of F.A. Cup games (Luton Town / Exeter City ), which I guess didn’t really give a particularly fair representation to my eight year old self of the average match day experience at the time. My first ever league game was on 28th March 1981 against Chelsea, a 1-0 win in front of a crowd of 17,297; a little closer to the reality of the period. A little extra significance being thrown in as it was only time that my mam came to the game with us too…

Outside St. James’…

Not a lot to say really, I guess it’s all been said already but we have to enjoy days like this, heaven knows they’re few and far between. When the board went up signalling six minutes of injury time, the noise that built within SJP was just incredible. It just proves what’s been said time and time again, we don’t have unrealistic expectations, just give us something to shout for. Imagine what the noise would be like if we picked up a trophy, Capital One Cup included. So then, Alan Pardew, it’s over to you; White Hart Lane next Wednesday night, a packed away end, choose wisely….
