READ NEWCASTLE VERDICT
What a week for Newcastle fans. A 1-0 win over Manchester United with an academy player scoring the winning goal and then Sunderland’s takeover falling through before they sack their manager.
Everything seems to be going the way of Tyneside at the moment and Newcastle fans will be hoping and praying it stays that way for many years to come.
