Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Jim Brown


I am in my usual spot in the popular side half way down the terrace on the half way line.

Nattrass moves out of defence at right back, Supermac is keeping pace with him through the middle. As they approach the halfway line Nattrass squares the ball into the centre circle. Mac doesn't break stride and hits the ball left footed like a shell from a howitzer. The shot rising all the time crashes past Mark Wallington into the far top left hand corner of the goal at the Leases end. Mac said in the paper the next day "I knew he was an inexperienced keeper because he went for it.

Years later the Sun ran an article asking managers what was the best goal they had ever seen and the then Leicester manager (Tony Jago I think?) said Macs was the best he had seen.

Not on cameras anywhere .

Jim Brown (50years of agony and still can,t get enough)
