I’ve been really enjoying the Fever Pitch series on BBC, and low and behold City make an appearance in episode 3 when Keegan took over at Newcastle and we were the first opponents!  Without googling it I’m remembering a 5-0 thumping??

@Tinmans Love Child

You are correct. Miserable day, long coach journeys, pouring with rain all afternoon, Cole and Jacki up front contributing zero effort, a Magpies midfielder who's name I forget, swallow dived to get two penalties He'd become a born again Christian so cheating clearly part of his religion!

The rain got inside my expensive Barber waterproof. A truly appalling away day which is impossible to forget especially watching little Keegan going hysterical at every goal.

The joys of being a City fan.

Keegan's first game against us was a 3-0 win for Newcastle. The 5-0 was the following season.

A season before that again 1990-91 always reminds me about how wonderful the Geordie's are about how they are football fanatics and support through thick and thin.

Home game City won 1-0 gate 15,858

In the return game  0-0 with only 13,758. Thirteen thousand not fifty three thousand. Wonderful and loyal. Ha ha!

PS we finished two places above them.

Good work, I knew there was a 5-0 somewhere!

Thankfully I didn’t go to those heavy defeats up there. The only time I have been to Newcastle was when we drew 0-0 during GJ’s reign.

I remember to 1-0 win in the 1990-91 season. Good atmosphere at AG that day and their striker (Mickey Quinn?) got a lot of stick from the City fans for looking overweight.

I went there around that time for a 0-0, Im sure the gate was lower than the 13k, thought it was 11k. 
As you say, thick and thin, yeah right😬

That was the Saturday after the Louie Donowa goal had beaten the few in midweek.

Only time I’ve been, a pitiful crowd, they were booed off at HT & FT.

But keep peddling that Geordie nation myth..
