The NUFC crest used to have a blue strap along the bottom, gold bits around the shield and the, er, seahorses? and a red bit on the flag.

They removed the colour, and it looks quite good, but now the big bright blue sponsor is the only non-b/w part. And it's an ugly logo.

The Heroes of 1969 commemorative shirt ... Fairs Cup Win..
.


Like Arsenal they think it is a European landmark trophy.
It doesn't even look particularly like the 1969 shirt other than the collar

1969

New one:


And that blue sponsor is hideous. I know people constantly moan about us having a red sponsor but at least it's a fairly plain text logo rather than this monstrosity.

You're right, it's nothing like it!

TBF, I live in Newcastle, I know a LOT of Newcastle fans and Keegan rarely, if ever comes up in conversation. They are all pretty cynical to be honest.
I know, just couldn't resist the opportunity to have a little dig. Was just joking around (y) Most Newcastle fans I've met have been great. There was a lot of delusion during the "second coming" of the messiah though. Obviously as you say people don't really talk about it any more though. And to be honest, I think everyone would be pretty cynical if you'd been putting up with an owner like Ashley for all these years.

Remove that sponsor and that's an absolutely gorgeous kit - one of the best I can think of in the Prem for a while.

What a waste.

You're right - they did get quite optimistic when Keegan came back but I think that

That is true. Can't blame them too much though as the firstcriticismas special, if ultimately trophy less. Unfortunately it's rarely as good the second time, particularly when you have a Mike Ashley in charge. Whatever criticism one can level at DL, he has a plan beyond merely surviving in the premier league.

It doesn't take long in football for things to change. Only a few weeks ago, it looked like they were gonna be back in the big time with a mega money takeover. Now, seem no nearer getting rid of Ashley, and lose their beloved Benitez.
