    who are ya - mark 2

    Anyone who has been here a while will remember Whitepointer and Nufcnutter as 2 of the most popular board members and moderators we have ever known..Sadly neither whitepointer nor Nutter are still here, both taken well before their time should have been up. Nutter first, on 9th June 2007 at the age of 32, and Whitepointer on 19th August 2014 at the age of 42.

    Before NUFC Nutter became ill, he started the original “who are ya” thread that was so popular it amassed well over 400 posts. Unfortunately ,somewhere in the transition between forum hosts, the original disappeared.
    We have decided in their honour, and as a way to remember them both, to start this new thread with them being the 1st entries by proxy.

    Please add your own details , give as much or as little info as you like. feel free to add anything else that you think is interesting

    Supports: Newcastle (also have a soft spot for Huddersfield and Rennes-family reasons)
    Likes: spending time with my kids, away games with pals, helping people
    Dislikes: People who act like arseholes, especially those in the name of NUFC, Sland fans who hate us more than love their own club, ISIS ****s, Putin and others who show a complete lack of humanity towards others.

    Best football moment so far: Quite a few - Kelly v Portsmouth 1992, Liam O's free kick at Joker Park 1992, Barcelona 3-2 in 1997, Inter Milan away 2004 and Juve at home 2004.
    Favourite player(s) - past: Waddle, Beardsley, Ginola, Budgie just for his passion for the game ie sleeping in his goal keeper gloves
    Favourite player(s) - present: Townsend, Anita, Lascelles and Mbemba (because it looks like they actually care). Sissoko, Janmatt, Cisse, Wijnaldum can **** off

    Occupation: Student (Language & Linguistics); chef
    Where from: Durham. Currently at Lancaster Uni but moving to Newcastle soon
    Supports: Newcastle United
    Likes: Football, whiskey, poker, reading, language & linguistics, Theatre Royal & Live Theatre, binging TV, PC gaming, cooking, RX8s
    Dislikes: Religious extremism; weakminded, radical idiots who internally justify their reasons for killing people

    Best football moment so far: Bringing in Rafa because it shows a massive shake-up, despite happening fairly late. On the pitch, it was Tiote's pearler against Arsenal. I had never gone more mental than I did then.

    Favourite player(s) - past: Pavel Srníček. I was in net for the school team and always loved Pav; Alan Shearer too. I guess Ben Arfa counts as a past player and he was definitely a favourite.

    Favourite player(s) - present: Tim Krul and Mitro. I think Mitro can be a dominating player, so I hope he sorts out his issues. I like Townsend as well but there's a lot of uncertainty surrounding our players, so it's hard to get attached.
