100 TOON ARMY HEROES: Newcastle Uniteds Greatest

Sir Bobby Robson once said: "What is a club? Not the building or the Directors, or the people who are paid to represent it. It's the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride of the city. The fans!"Whilst other football clubs have their 'Glory-seekers', fans who latch onto a club because it is more successful than others or have a better history, Newcastle United have the Toon Army. In 2020 over 10,000 football supporters voted for the 'Best Away Supporters In The Football League' and the Toon Army won it hands down. It wasn't anything that we didn't know already, but it's nice to have it in writing.I'm not expecting supporters of other clubs to agree, and I may well be a touch biased, but Newcastle fans are the best in the world. For reasons they know, and the rest of the world will simply have to fathom.When the Toon Army falls in love with a player, they make it known. Former Magpies midfielder and sports pundit, Jermaine Jenas, couldn't understand the concept and called the city "a goldfish bowl" because there was no escape from the adulation and the pressure to please. The guy just didn't get it! But many players do, and this book is a collection of the greatest crowd-pleasing Newcastle United players since the club formed back in 1892. They played in the famous black and white shirt with the passion the Geordie public have come to expect. The workhorses (Cheik Tiote, Gary Speed); the skilled (David Ginola, Jinky Smith); and the entertainers (Kevin Keegan, Gazza). They are all here ... 100 of the Greatest!
