This is an excellent account, written in a light hearted style by a man who is clearly a Newcastle United fanatic, telling us of the early days of Newcastle United. He claims that the club was actually formed in 1881 as Stanley FC, then became Newcastle East End before becoming Newcastle United after the acquisition of St James' Park. Correctly, Paul points out that this was never really a merger, but nevertheless the name United really means what it says.
Great figures are mentioned, notably Frank Watt, Colin Veitch and Peter McWilliam, who await their biographers, and the author manages to get a real insight into what life was like in Edwardian Newcastle with their repeated unhappy trips to the Crystal Palace and their eventual FA win in 1910.
But the love of Newcastle United is a continuum. It is probably the only city in Europe which is so focused on its team, and it has long been a matter of amazement to me that the Geordies and the Magpies cannot not get a good team together. Yes, we know that incompetent (and perhaps even corrupt) administration is more or less endemic over the years, but why do the Geordies put up with it? Why can't we get a good team? I remember Jackie Milburn and Bobby Mitchell, my father waxed lyrical about Hughie Gallacher and my grandfather recalled Peter the Great - but who will my son and grandson have to remember?
For the sake of people like Paul Brown and all the other tens of thousands of frustrated Geordies, we can only hope and pray. In the meantime, I suggest that the Geordies, the Magpies, the Toon Army and indeed any football fan of any other persuasion should read this book. It will bring a smile to your face, and give you a spring in your step. Things don't need to be as bad as they have been for the past 50 years.

Excellent history of Newcastle the city and also United. It is such a shame the people's club floated shares that eventually ended up in the hands of grubs and capitalists.

Great work Paul Brown. I will certainly be reading more of your books.

Cheers
