Player of 2013 – Yohan Cabaye
He did want to leave. He does want to leave to progress himself and whether he does or doesn’t, is written in the stars but what is for certain with Colo on the wane, he is now our most important player. Few will forget his winning goal at Old Trafford in a hurry.
Most improved Player of 2013 – Mike Williamson
Let’s be honest “Willo” (sorry) has had some horrendous moments in a United shirt but since coming back into the side this season has been a big part of those results we’ve all celebrated so lustfully this season.
Modern Football – Demba Ba
Seemed to be looking to get away as soon as he arrived with the whole narrative of his time at SJP all about this clause or that clause! He got his big move to Chelsea where he earns twice the money he was on at United but hardly plays. He seems happy though.
Half and Half scarves! Jesus Christ.
Did that really happen?
Joe Kinnear is the Director of Football at Newcastle United. Read that again. I know, I know. That car crash of a radio interview on Talksport has not been repeated but let’s be under no illusions, every day this man is on the Newcastle United payroll is a disaster.

Speaking with forked tongue
Alan Pardew. In the summer we couldn’t compete with Southampton and Swansea and there was nonsense spoken about going into the club’s overdraft had we signed a player. The latest is the club is financially sound. Don’t believe a word.
Rest In Peace
Nelson Mandela. Lou Reed.

Loic Remy – he’s not our player.
Kharkiv. Moscow. Lisbon.
If you didn’t love Newcastle United, you’d hate them (Part 1).
Banning the local media (upon which local jobs – not just the journalists are dependent) on the trumped up charges of giving too much publicity to the Time 4 Change march, when we know the real reason was more closely related to Ashley’s attempt to extort (just my opinion) money from the press to interview players and the manager. Doomed to failure, bad publicity and isolates the club yet further from the community that has sustained it since 1892.

If you didn’t love Newcastle United, you’d hate them (Part 2).
John Irving (Finance Director) and Club Secretary, Lee Charnley choosing to ban the Newcastle United Supporters Trust on some bollocks about a breach in petty protocol! No sentient person believes that is the real reason and that it was all about the tough questions the NUST led on, questions which revealed that the club does not prioritise the Cup competitions and Sports Direct (but not just them – other Ashley companies – Firetrap, Dunlop etc.) have wall to wall advertising around SJP, the training ground and on merchandise absolutely free of charge.
Best Away Day of 2013
The Stadium of Light, Lisbon, home of Benfica!
Worst Away Day of 2013
Amex Stadium, Brighton, home of Brighton and Hove Albion FC!
Moment of 2013
Old Trafford’s rapidly emptying stands, the sound of booing all around the Theatre of Dreams (sic) and in one corner, 3000 of our mates going absolutely light, buzzing on these rare moments of delight that keep us coming back for more like the hopeless saps we are.
Back In The Old Routine
All being well, Shola Ameobi will play in the World Cup for Nigeria in Brazil against Lionel Messi, the greatest player on the planet, of Argentina and Newcastle United captain, Fabricio Coloccini will be one of his team-mates.
That cunt at Cardiff changing the colours of his club and the other cunt at Hull wanting to change their name! Just fuck off.

The nutter punching a Police Horse on Strawberry Place after the Derby
The outrageous, life-ruining sentences for some basically knob-head behaviour associated with football that wouldn’t get to court elsewhere!
Second successive derby loss for the first time since the 1960s.
