Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Grant Mitchell


Newcastle United v Inter Milan 30/09/70 - Milan had several world cup final players from that summers Mexico tournament. Big crowd - I was in the Gallowgate- aged 8.

The Milan goalkeeper confronts the referee and then unbelievably punches him in the stomach. The referee takes an eternity to fall and all hell is let loose and the keeper sent off. A Policeman is on the pitch etc.

We won 2-0 - can you believe we beat Inter Milan with all those players I had watched so avidly on the TV only a few months before.
