St. James’ Park… Saturday February 4th… 3pm

Attendance: 52,271

Ticket: £35 Programme: £3

A very welcome, and deserved, three points. Regardless of what Schteve McClaren may have thought…

Much better atmosphere too. Louder, and less negativity. And the usual quota of inexplicable refereeing decisions…

Saturday Afternoon: St. James’ Park…

An interesting journey back on Sunday too…

Left home at 15.00, first train boarded at 15.15. My second train left Newcastle at 15.40, and was fine until Wakefield before slowing down and sitting just outside of Sheffield for roughly 2 hours. Anyway, eventually we moved, going through Rotherham a couple of times (backwards and forwards) before finally making it into New Street at 23.03. I think that runs in at 7 hours and 23 minutes, or 4 hours late, whichever you prefer…

After that, the 23.14 to Coventry arriving there at midnight(ish). Before finally, and following a taxi courtesy of Cross Country trains, making it back for 01.10. Just in time for the Superbowl Halftime Show…

I then made the mistake of going to bed when the Falcons went 28-3 ahead…
