Hello, Hello, we are the Geordie boys

I was in Newcastle recently for a stag and we went to see (the high flying) Newcastle United in action. The Geordies are warm and friendly; here’s some photos of some supporters.

We had a good chat with this couple in The Strawberry, a pub opposite Saint James Park. They live in Stockport but have season tickets for Newcastle and travel six hour round trip for every Newcastle United home game! The man knew his football and had been to over eight Irish football stadiums in his time.

I was going to leave out this photo (as it’s blurry) but I love the guys big head of hair so I’m including it…

It’s All For You (Ireland football fans)

Some of the Irish fans at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin, Ireland for the Ireland vs Macedonia game. I arrived at the stadium early so wandered around with my camera. It was nice to see the stadium fill up (not to capacity) slowly and the people trickle in. You could see the happiness and excitement in the kids faces, it reminded me of when I was young(er) and used to visit Pairc Ui Chaoimh, Croke Park or other stadiums where the Cork hurling team were playing.

Ireland- the fans

I’m number one baby so why try harder (Macedonia football fans)

Ireland played Macedonia in a European Cup qualifier game at The Aviva stadium in Dublin, Ireland. Ireland won 2-1. There was a small but very colourful section of Macedonian fans. They were nice and friendly and even encouraged me to take their pictures.
There were no problems with bringing my dslr into the stadium and taking pictures. I was up in the premium level so maybe that made it okay. If I was sitting pitch side maybe the stewards would have told me to put it away. These are my first set of pictures from the game, next will be ‘before the game’, and lastly ‘the game’.

I’m number one baby so why try harder? This enthusiastic fan even asked me did I want to take a second picture of him to make sure I got a good one.
