Newcastle United is the most well-known football team in the North East. A team with a long history and many fans who love them even more. Clubs have their fair share of weird events. Here are the best five.
- Joe Kinnear tries to sign his player, but he can’t.
An entire piece should be written about Joe Kinnear because of how big-hearted he is. Among Kinnear’s crazy behaviour is Simon Bird’s attack on him in the Mirror.
He tried to buy a player from Newcastle. Kinnear, the club’s Director of Football, tried to do this.In the League Cup, Shane Ferguson was loaned to Swansea City by Birmingham City. Kinnear was there, too. After the game, Kinnear went to a Birmingham official to ask about signing Ferguson because of how well he played in midfield.Kinnear didn’t know that Ferguson had been a Newcastle player before. It took a while for our guy to figure that out.
- Kevin Keegan loses his mind on TV and doesn’t know what to do.
He has been a great manager, but his outburst on live TV that led to Newcastle’s defeat in the 1995-96 Premier League title race will always be a thing of the past.
Newcastle was three points behind Manchester United when the penultimate round of games started at the end of April. Manchester United had a game in hand, so they had a better chance of getting back in the game (note the month).It didn’t matter that Newcastle won their game in hand. They would draw their last two games of the regular season, even though they won their first game. It took Manchester United four points to win the title.
- A Newcastle fan rides a horse.
We’d say this was one of the weirdest Premier League games that I have ever seen. People worldwide were shocked when a Newcastle fan took horseplay to a whole new level in April 2013, making news all over.
A 45-year-old man who was a child punched a police horse in the face because Newcastle lost 3-0 at home to Sunderland last season. During this time, Rogerson was making fun of the police horse.
He was sent to prison and became known as the “Horse Puncher” because he did something terrible. It also meant that Rogerson would not be able to play for the Mean Machine convicts if he had the chance to do so.
Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer are the two other people on the team. They are the other two people on the team. Go toe-to-toe with someone.
They played for the Toon Army against Aston Villa on April 2, 2005 (April again?). In the end, Newcastle was outclassed and lost 3-0 to a better team.
When Bowyer and Dyer got into a fight and started to fight back against each other, things got even worse for Newcastle United. They didn’t stop, and in front of the shocked crowd at St. James’ Park, they fought.Both players were sent to the stands after getting red cards for fighting after Steven Taylor was sent off for handballing. After the fight was caught on camera, shockwaves spread through the area.
- Alan Pardew: Headbutts David Meyler wrote the book.
In Newcastle United history, Alan Pardew headbutted Hull midfielder David Meyler. This is the most outrageous thing Pardew has done in the club’s history.As soon as Pardew does something terrible, there is always a lot of talk about it. David Meyler, who plays for Hull City, was hit by a headbutt in March. However, Pardew’s reaction was extreme. Meyler might have pushed Pardew first.
