about this item

For the first time, the history of Newcastle United football club is told through the reports of fifty of its most important matches. The book relives early matches against Woolwich Arsenal and Newton Heath (Man United), as well as titanic modern games against the likes of Sunderland and Barcelona, and remembers the exploits of modern-day heroes like Alan Shearer and Malcolm Macdonald, as well as key players from the club's earlier history like Jackie Milburn, Hughie Gallacher and Colin Veitch.

Each match report is put into its proper historical context with local color and social commentary. What were Newcastle fans of this era like? What else was happening in football? What else was happening on Tyneside? What else was happening in Britain and the wider world? For example, Newcastle United's 1927 title win came in the same year as the Tyne Bridge was built and Newcastle Brown Ale went on sale. Meanwhile, at that time, Manchester United were in the Second Division alongside South Shields who are today a North East non-league team.

Journalist Dave Morton presents not just a football history of Newcastle United but also a social history of the city that is home to this great club.
