Gateshead 3 Torquay United 0

Gateshead International Stadium… Saturday August 12th… 3pm

Attendance: 756

Ticket: £15 – Programme: £2.50

A comfortable, if slightly flattering win for Gateshead, and one which moved them up to third place in the National League…

Torquay certainly contributed to their own downfall, with two own goals either side of a Richard Peniket strike…

My final game of 2016, Gateshead ending Barrow’s 26 match unbeaten run in a pretty convincing fashion…

Barrow may have had their minds on next weekend’s FA Cup Third Round, but an impressive win nonetheless…

I had a good rant last week about the current structure of Newcastle’s Loyalty Points scheme. My position? I don’t have any issue with a scheme that rewards fans who travel regularly to away games, ‘do the miles, earn the points’, I get that. I do, however, have an issue with a scheme that allows me to ‘do the miles’ but then won’t allow me to ‘earn the points’, because I’m only a non-season ticket holder who travels regularly to away games…

The most disappointing aspect of ‘the debate’, from my perspective, was the reaction of some of our more high profile fans. I guess that the current system works for them, or if it doesn’t then they can always blag a ticket, so why rock the boat…?

Ironically, I’d already managed to get a ticket for Preston (albeit it in the home end), but given recent events, I really didn’t fancy it. Things to do, so an extra couple of days at home carried far more appeal than sitting on my hands in Lancashire…

Gateshead International Stadium: Pre-Match…

Anyway, back to the game that I did attend. Gateshead had to settle for a point after surrendering a two goal lead, when they appeared to be cruising. I guess that some consolation could be taken from the fact that they remained unbeaten in the league in October…

Two games in one day, a first for me…

Anyway, this was the first half of the double-header, Gateshead dropping home points for the first time this season in a 1-1 draw. Maybe I’m a jinx…?

Gateshead Attack…

To say that it wasn’t a great game would be an understatement, with both of the goals coming inside the first ten minutes…

I had to leave about five minutes before the end to insure that I made it to St. James’ in plenty of time. It wasn’t the most difficult decision that I’ve ever had to make…
