What a week! Promotion secured with the victory over Preston at St James’ Park and just shy of 5,000 at Cardiff on Friday night to see us break a club record with fourteen away wins in a single season. Not bad eh?
Then came Saturday, if Sunderland getting relegated after years of stinking out the Premier League for years wasn’t bad enough, Brighton decided to choke it at home to Bristol City and must now go to Villa and win next week to win the league. We, of course have to beat Barnsley at St James’ Park next Sunday but that is an eminently achievable task.
Promotion has been achieved. The club has been rescued and no man can take more credit for what has been achieved than Senor Rafael Benitez. The display is designed to pay tribute to the manager and the team for winning promotion but also to provide the encouragement to win the Championship trophy which is now within reach.
Gallowgate Flags will be putting a full display on before the game with Barnsley. But we all need to play our part.
Gallowgate Flags want all supporters to be part of this pre-match display. We can all do this by bringing all flags, scarves and everything else we can get our hands on to turn St James’ Park into a sea of Black & White as Rafa’s Mags take to the pitch next Sunday.
As a certain recently relegated goal-keeper from Wearside said 12 months ago, now is the time to get the rave on. Though he was a bit premature in that.
The display will provide more evidence of the continuing love and support there is for Newcastle United Football Club.
Be part of it.
GET THE RAVE ON!

Fourteen. 14. However you say it or write it, it is exceptional. I can’t believe the turnaround in this football club in twelve months. The anger of relegation all but confirmed at a sneering Villa Park. A Villa Park devoid of reflection, too happy to stop the protests for us. Too happy to turn the mirror outwards once again. Cheers at full time from the home fans last April and an away end despondent and broken. Benitez leaving and for all the improvements under him, even he hadn’t managed to resolve an issue that has bugged the club for most of the 20 years I’ve supported it: Newcastle United are fucking rubbish away from home.
Promoted teams tend to be good away from home. You have to be. However the average for promoted teams in the last 13 seasons for the 26 teams promoted is 10 wins away from home. Only Leicester when they came up have matched or record breaking total. Fourteen away wins is the best in the clubs history.Read More »
It says something of the kindness and generosity of Newcastle United’s support that after only six matches of donations over 12 tonnes of food has been donated to the NUFC Fans Foodbank as well as almost £10,000. All of that food and money has been put to great work by supporting some of the most vulnerable and desperate people here on Tyneside.
All of the work is coordinated by the Newcastle West End Foodbank which works in partnership with all of the other Food-banks across the city and Tyneside to ensure the maximum benefit is made from the donations we’ve made.
The next stage now is to support the permanent donation point in the famous Grainger Market in Newcastle City Centre and which has been titled – shop and drop. Its to be hoped that over the close season supporters and locals will continue to make donations to the NUFC Fans Foodbank because the need is still there even when The Toon isn’t playing.
That unit opens on Friday 28/Apr/17 and everyone is welcome. Just don’t go empty handed.

Once again, a Saturday without any Newcastle United so you may fancy a stretch of the legs and we would heartily recommend a trip down the Felling by-pass where The Heed entertain Bromley. Please note the early 12:15pm KO time.
Neil (Harlow Green in the area) Aspin’s side are currently eight and are no slouches. They need your support.
Get yourself along – good place to nurse a Friday night hangover from those promotion hangovers and prepare for another one because with a bit of luck, Sunderland will be down by tea-time. Insert smiley face thing here.Read More »
Newcastle United. The only club in the world that could achieve promotion and have raids and arrests for tax fraud in the same week. At the time of writing there is still very little information to go on so I wont dwell on it, but come on man! Why now?!
Thankfully we have a manager who has dealt with politics and corruption in football at the highest leve. Even this latest farce is probably small fry when compared to the world of Real Madrid under Florentino Perez. Rafa all about working with an owner who will literally throw anybody under the bus to save his own skin.
All we can do is turn our attention back to football, because after all we have 2 games and a title to win! Rafa will have done the same this week as as far as he is concerned, the winner of this league has not been decided. Friday night gives us a chance to be within 1 point of Brighton, and just maybe add a little pressure to their Saturday evening game with Bristol City. A Bristol City side that have won 3 drawn 1 in their last 4 games. Just saying.Read More »
So, that’s promotion in the bag after a long-hard season. Credit to the manager who has squeezed every last drop out of his players and got us over the promotion line.
As you’d expect the true faith Podcast lads were behind the microphones and reflecting on Monday night as well as the season in general.
WARNING – CONTAINS LOTS OF RAFA LOVE!Read More »
United wrapped up promotion in style with a comprehensive win in front of yet another 50k+ Championship crowd at a chilly SJP. Ciaran Clark came back into the side with Mitrovic and, surprisingly Rob Eliott back in net and after our perfect weekend of results the stage was set for us to return back to the top flight.

‘Newcastle United, we’re coming for you’. Since Huddersfield fans sang that last Monday on 85 minutes, they’ve conceded five goals and not scored. Alongside Reading’s predictable defeat at Forest, Huddersfield’s nightmare home thrashing made it an excellent weekend for Newcastle United. Three points from our last three games will see us mathematically promoted.
As things stand, Reading cannot catch us unless there is a forty goal swing in our last two games (assuming they win two and we lose three). If Huddersfield were to win their last three games then United would require a point from the last three to secure promotion on goal difference. This is the long way of saying that United are promoted. We will pick up the one point required in the last three, but it’s more likely that Huddersfield simply won’t get to the 85 points we already have. Newcastle United will be playing Premier League football next season, regardless of the result on Monday night.Read More »
