No doubt, the commotion around the world has emerged due to a historic club with the largest and most loyal supporters have come up from the relentless dark shadows of non-achievers into the most popular event yet again.
Newcastle United has propelled back into international awareness by the final appearance of their first cup in 24 years with expatriated Geordies and devoted converts from the US to Hong Kong and Australia gearing up for the big day.
Viaplay typified the sudden crazy scramble upon Planet Football for getting a piece of the action. They are establishing the live final day of the Carabao Cup from Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden, across a swathe of countries to Iceland, Greenland, and also Faroe Island, and watch Newcastle United more than Man United.
Thus, Viaplay flew in from Denmark the previous week and found himself standing in front of the statue of Robson talking about United the prayer of Geordie that a long run of the failure of Wembley is going to end.
An additional interest was the Mr. Fixit’s background since he is Geordie born and bred and played for Sunderland, as well as Newcastle united but has lived in England for several years.
A fascinating character is Keith Armstrong who had created three successful careers in the adopted first as the goalscoring forward, now a television pundit but then a decorated manager.
Armstrong was born in Corbridge and had been raised in Newcastle’s West Denton district. He is like all Geordies across the world relishing in the rise of Newcastle United from a club that was mistreated to one team that is worthy of their mass support.
