    Do you lot have a usual route or just go where you feel like on the day?

    I get the metro in, so usually off at Central then head up via pink lane. Raffertys usually the 1st calling point. Then after the game hang around haymarket unless meeting people in the black garter

    Irish Centre is a nice club, or at least it was about 5 year ago, that'd be decent with a little'un. Don't like letting outsiders in though based on my last few visits, unless I just have 1 of those faces. I went in the snooker place in China Town before Chelsea that was decent

    Mile castle for a swifty straight off the train, sometimes another quick one in the bee hive before heading round the corner to old george.

    Used to go to crown posada, also sometimes in bridge hotel, red house and rarely bodega, duke of welly sometimes.

    Initially the Trent house, then The Hogsons Arms, then The Cumberland Wrestler, all sadly no more. The Star for me these days.

    No mate, don’t think so. It was up little Belfast. Long gone now I would have thought.
    Edit: just had a look on google maps, could have been!
    Double edit. Aye, it was!
    That’s where the undertaker (John Alder) who was killed on the plane used to frequent.

    One of them but you end up reading different ones are the oldest.

    Crown posada, old george, red house and bodega (used to be black bull) are old, there will be plenty of others.

    I went in the bridge tavern before one game which is inbetween the posts of the tyne bridge, that used to be called Newcastle arms, which is now near the ground.

    I always thought that the oldest boozer in Newcastle was Jim when he comes back up.
