Newcastle United and Its Funny Moments

One thing about Newcastle United is that there is always some news about them, either good or bad.

Rafa Benitez is the current manager of Newcastle United and he is one of the best managers in Europe today. And at present, it seems that everything is going to be fine. With this, fans can simply look back at the life of Newcastle United and laugh at some of the catastrophe’s that the team has gone through. These events might have been etched in the fans’ memories and have put a smile upon their remembrances.

Alan Pardew is not new to the headlines; he has been in it many times in the past. These headlines vary from the brilliant, to the dreadful, and to the downright hilarious. Over the years, Pardew has been known to always be in the thick of controversy but this time, he really outdid himself. David Mayler, a midfielder of Hull City, was head-butted by Pardew during their match. A fine of ?100,000 by Newcastle United, and ?60,000 by the FA was meted out to Pardew for the head-butt!

One of the football lols of Premier League’s history was when two players of their team squared up, which happened to Lee Bowyer and Kierton Dyer. There is supposedly no such thing as fighting with your own team mate because sports is team work and the normal behavior is players on one team fighting with players on the other team. Opposing players frequently fight with each other. But Dyer and Bowyer were both playing for the Toon Army at the time. For their violent behaviors, the two players both received red cards. If it wasn’t bad enough, the team lost to Aston Villa at home with a score of 3 – 0.

Fans believe that Sunderland is no match to Newcastle United especially at home. But, what was unthinkable happened with a 3-0 defeat at home. However, there was one fan who took the loss seriously and vented all his anger at a poor horse called Bud. The fan was 45 year old Barry Rogerson who took out his frustrations on the horse and taunted it before punching its head. This moronic actions led him to serve a year’s jail sentence. There will be worse years to follow for this humiliation.

There are many poor managers that Newcastle United has employed but none the worse than Joe Kinnear. He did so many funny things in his career although they were really terrible during those times. Trying to sign is his own player was the funniest of them all. This happened when Kinnear attended a League Cup game between Swansea and Birmingham. The Brummies loaned Shane Ferguson from Newcastle during that time. Ferguson dominated the midfield in a very great game. Kinnear then noticing this commented that he was going to sign the player. The press though it was a joke but they soon realized that he didn’t know that Ferguson is a Newcastle player on loan. Singing up your own player? Nothing like that has ever happened before!
