Have Your Say: Fan Interview – Newcastle United
Newcastle United fan Dean Singleton tells us about his love for the Toon Army.
(1) How long have you supported Newcastle?
I have supported the Toon Army for 17 years – man and boy!
(2) Reason for choosing Newcastle over any other team?
I remember reading one of those season previews things when I was a young lad and Newcastle just stuck out for me.
(3) Roughly how many fixtures do you attend a season?
I am rather an armchair supporter I am afraid.
(4) The greatest player to have ever played for your team?
Has to be Alan Shearer, not old enough to remember Malcolm Macdonald.
(5) Laziest player you have ever witnessed?
Jean Alain Boumsong was just a lazy, lazy tart. Far too casual for a big money signing.
(6) The most obscure name and number you have owned on the back of a shirt?
Cold hard, boring number nine Alan Shearer. Never strayed far from the rule book on that one.
(1) Thoughts on your manager? (Chris Hughton) *Correct at the time of interview!*
I’d say he was a stable manager at best, did a good job getting promotion. I also think he has earned the chance to stay on and manage the club.
(2) The best young, undiscovered player at your club?
Kazenga Lua-Lua. Yes, brother of Lomana, but I hope he turns out to be better and stays a lot longer.
(3) Worst possible finish for your side this season?
Probably relegation. Sorry for a vote of no confidence, but we could easily have a turn of fortune and with a lack of quality, we may suffer.
(3) Soft spot for another team?
Real Madrid. Always sign big players with massive reputations, and when it comes off, which is never as often as it should be, they are great to watch.
(1) If you could step on the pitch for your team, what role would you play?
Would have to be left back, where I played during my school days. I subsequently retired to the armchair as soon as my G.C.S.E’s were finished.
(2) What one player would you like to see at your team if money was no question – excluding Rooney, Ronaldo or Messi?
Pepe of Real Madrid. Needs must with this choice, but we’ve had a weak defence for more years than I care to remember.
(3) Which trophy do you most dream of winning?
If I could choose one trophy that we could win in my lifetime, it would have to be the Premier League. It represents a full season of hard work rather than a cup run, which sometimes is as much about luck, as consistency.
