    Guys, guys guys,and Gals, lets for clarity clear this petty misunderstanding up once and for all!

    As the facts are that there is ONLY one United: Newcastle United!!

    A quick history lesson shows quite unequivocally that one Newcastle United are INDEED the very 1st “United” – when both Newcastle clubs actually “United”, funny that!

    Now don’t start getting all defensive and start babbling like babies, we all love our clubs, but these facts will always remain.

    So, for those that are unsure, try asking yourself this question: how, or who, were Manchester united – united; with who?

    Why is this such a soar spot with sections of your fans?

    You simply cannot have it all, yes, for sure your club might be bigger, but Newcastle are without doubt and will always be the very first United, history cannot be changed just because you don’t like the facts, tis so very true!

    Howay the lads x
