Recalling Revenge


Reading through today I noticed it’s eight years to the day since Newcastle United stuffed Manchester United five-nil. Happy days. I remember that game quite well, or at least the watching of it. It was a Sunday match covered by Sky. I recall sitting in my parent’s living room watching it. Manchester had beaten us in the Charity Shield (as a think it still was then) earlier in the year, 4-0. That led to a certain sense of needle already, helped by the fact we were much closer rivals back in those days. It started off well and just got better. At four we were happy enough but then Phillipe Albert took the ball and strode majestically forward from central defence without a care in the world to chip the ball over the great Peter Schmeichel. A younger version of this author may or may not have leapt from sofa, somehow avoided coffee table and slid on his knees towards TV in absolute delight :-)
