Bert tributes in City square and a superb special tribute with the reprint of the 1956 cup final programme with the programme of the match. New look programme looks good, but not sure why there’s a pic of Morrissey in there. £3 too- good value. Minutes applause for Bert, will the club honour him with a stand and statue? Should’ve done it whilst he was alive.
Newcastle were without Cabaye and Remy. Lots of hype for our first game, totally justified with the 4-0 win. Same as last year, didn’t see much difference in the style of play though I’ve been shouted down on this one. Dzeko man of the match? I counted 7 sitters he missed and he’s supposed to be a striker. Steven Taylor was sent off for a mild forearm smash on Sergio, very silly but a sending off these days.
Overall a magnificent night.
Slow getting out of the East car park as one lane blocked off so that the north car park can also exit at the rear. Bummer for us, benefit for them? Not sure.
Regarding the Custis’s, fellas, one of them was on Blue Tuesday with Sean Riley last season and seemed reasonable. Need to check in the KK which covered it and advise.
