A match to remember; Letters.
I REMEMBER the famous Newcastle victory mentioned recently by a reader. My dad took me and we watched from the Popular side. I was aged 11 and like all the other boys sat on the stone kerb while my dad watched from the terraces a few rows back.
The score at half-time was something like 6-0 and I remember turning to my dad and shouting with joy. I knew enough about football to know that was an extraordinary score for a professional game.
Later there came all those FA Cup victories and with the optimism of youth, I thought it would be like that forever. I hadn't realised then that this was Newcastle United, destroyer of dreams!
