That Oliver bloke...
Very sorry if this is included on another thread (did a quick scan and was surprised that I couldn't find a mention)... and I'm not familiar with the NEs journalists and people who 'represent' Newcastle.
... but wtf was that bloke doing with the 'poem' about the number 9 shirt at Newcastle on Football Focus? I was so embarrassed I had to temporatrily switch channels (so I'm afraid I missed any poetic content that might have been moving and poignant). I'm sure any self respecting Newcastle supporter would have been cringing as well. I hope to god never to see anything similar about Sunderland.
Did I dream it or did it really happen?
