    Talking Classic and funny Newcastle quotes.

    How many of you can remember the good bad and ugly quotes as well as the funny one's concerning Newcastle players, managers, owners, journalists having a pop or praising or messing us.

    A few good ones .
    Keegan about Sir John Hall. " He was a multi millionaire when I joined Newcastle. Now he's just a millionaire."
    This was after Keegan spent 15 million on Alan Shearer.



    Douglas Hall:
    "Our fans like people like Keith Gillespie- they relate to people who like to have a drink and get into trouble."



    Joey Barton:
    "Him and his fat mate (Ashley I presume) should be cacking it if I decide to write a book. There'll be no holding back on those two muppets."



    Freddy Shepherd:
    "You simply do not sack Bobby Robson."
    A few days later Shepherd sacked Bobby Robson.


    Freddy Shepherd:
    "Alan Shearer is boring - we call him Mary Poppins. He never gets into trouble."



    Ok there's a few to start you all of....come on there must be loads that people will recall from yesteryear to present day in all manners pertaining to Newcastle United football club.

    A few more to whet the appetite.

    Kevin Keegan:

    "People say you need coaching badges to be a manager, but when I went to Newcastle my only qualification was a thousand rounds of golf in Spain."



    Kevin Keegan talking to John Aldridge when Aldridge took over as manager of Tranmere rovers.

    " Welcome to the grey hair club."




    Journalist: "Do you have a nickname?"

    Shola Ameobi:"No, not really."

    Journalist: "So what does Bobby Robson call you?"

    Shola Ameobi: "Carl Cort."

    A few more.

    Bobby Robson said:
    "Laurent Robert said I was picking the wrong team. At the time I was, because he was in it."



    Bobby Robson said:
    "Now we've got Southgate, on signing Jonathan Woodgate."



    David Ginola said:
    "I have discovered Newcastle brown ale and my ambition is to speak Geordie as well as Peter Beardsley."
    ........... Obviously.

    Michael Owen said:
    "I'd like to put a sticker on my head that says 'doing fine thanks, don't ask'."
    On being approached by Newcastle fans in town.


    The smug git.

    "That's it, Wa Doon."

    Sitting in the Old Milburn at SJP in 1992, nearing the end of the season , about to be relegated without two wins, when Malcolm Allen scored a late goal for Milwall late on in division 2. Everyone knew this goal could signal the end of us as a Club.

    It was said by a bloke sitting behind us, in a broad West End Newcastle accent. Everyone knew what this ultimately could mean.

    Cue David Kelly in the next game against Portsmouth, who were one hell of a side, to score a late winner, and then an even later win at Leicester to keep us up.

    Not a famous quote "That's it Wa Doon" but it still lives with me.

    "Hairy mot."
    This was how Mirandinha greeted people after Paul Gascoigne told him that hairy mot was hello.


    Steve Harper talking about Andy Carroll.
    "I've known him since he was 6ft 3inches."

    Gaza was on pre season tour of New Zealand and he was in the hotel bar with John Anderson

    He said Anders “do you fancy a bacon samidge “

    Anderson said “yes” so Gaza called the waiter over and asked for bacon samidges

    The waiter returned and said “ Sorry Mr Gasgoine the chef said he doesn’t have any bacon”

    To which Gazza replied “What you’ve got 6 million sheep and yeve got nee bacon”

    True! I suppose it is kind of sad as well.
