Funny Moments for Newcastle United
Newcastle United has had shared of the news in years and some of them good and some, bad.
The current manage of Newcastle United is one of Europe's elite managers in the person of Rafa Benitez. Under his management, it seems that everything is fine with the team. So fans can simply look back at the past years and laugh at some of the disasters that have occurred in this team. These events might have been etched in the fans' memories and have put a smile upon their remembrances.
Alan Pardew is not new to the headlines; he has been in it many times in the past. Brilliant, dreadful, and downright hilarious news, Alan Pardew was in it. Pardew is always involved in controversy but this is the worst of it all. During the match at Hull City, Pardew head-butted Hull midfielder David Meyler. It was a rather expensive head butt which cost him a fine of ?100,000 by Newcastle United, and ?60,000 by the FA.
When two players of your team square up in a game, it is something unusual and funny, a football lol, and this is what happened to Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer. The normal thing is that players of one team square up with players of the opposing team. Opposing players frequently fight with each other. But Dyer and Bowyer were both playing for the Toon Army at the time. For their violent behaviors, the two players both received red cards. That was bad enough, but they also eventually lost to Aston Villa at home with a score of 3 - 0.
Fans believe that Sunderland is no match to Newcastle United especially at home. But they lost 3 - 0 to the team at home. And there is this one fan who took it very seriously and took it out on a poor police horse called Bud. The fan, one Barry Rogerson, 45 years old, taunted the horse and punched it on the head. He was then sentenced to a year in jail for this stupid actions. And the years of humiliation following will surely be a lot worse.
Although Newcastle United has had poor managers, Joe Kinnear takes the biscuit. Kinnear's career had so many funny moments although during those times, it was really quite terrible. And, the funniest of them all was when he tried to sign his own player. It was during the League Cup game between Swansea and Birmingham that this event occurred. The Brummies loaned Shane Ferguson from Newcastle during that time. Ferguson played a great game and he dominated the midfield. Kinnear then noticing this commented that he was going to sign the player. The press though it was a joke but they soon realized that he didn't know that Ferguson is a Newcastle player on loan. What a funny moment!
