Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Bob Smith


I took my son to see the toon play Victoria Setubal in the fairs cup tie, during the first half it started to snow and my son was on my shoulders so he so he could see the match. At half time I took him down off my shoulders, and nearly passed out as he was covered in snow and looked like a little snow man. he was so wet and cold that I had to take him home I missed the second half.

He said he was shouting for me to take him down, but I was to engrossed in the game and I couldn't hear him for the noise!

We still have a good laugh when we recall this incident
