We'll miss Ronnie doon this end
Just six days ago the man who produced the song Home Newcastle posted his last blog on this very site and just days before Sunday's relegation scrap with Aston Villa, the great Ronnie Lambert won't be around to see it.
Sadly Busker passed away in his sleep.
When this little website first started back in 2006, I could never have imagined the response it would get and that three years on I would still be lucky enough to be doing it let alone, a man who produced such an inspired piece of music also contributing just because he cared for the black and whites.
Ronnie, 58, was also one the first contributors and while he often didn't agree with some points I made, he shared the same view as myself that Newcastle is simply the best place to live in the world and that is deserves a successful football team that the Toon can be proud of.
And Ronnie fought the Toon's corner more times than I can remember.
Sadly, Ronnie's comments won't be on this blog any longer but I'm sure he'll be looking down and casting his eye on it and how Newcastle are doing and fighting for the black and white cause.
One thing is for sure, Home Newcastle will still be played at home games and remain a Geordie favourite.
Yes, this blog attracts a lot of tosh and people happy to unleash verbal abuse they wouldn't dream of saying in the real world in a real situation - but it remains a premier stage for Toon fans all over the world to have their say on what happens in football and Ronnie typified that perfectly.
Geordie, Ronnie, from Gateshead, of course worked in London as a brickie before coming back to the Toon to write Home Newcastle.
And the words to all Geordies mean so much - especially if like me you have had to spend time away from the area.
I agree with every word of that song.
And a look around what this fantastic city, surrounding countryside and coastline has to offer says it all - having a top flight team is also something to be proud of, even if it might not be for much longer.
But I'm sure that Busker would be quietly confident of doing the business, recently he spoke of his passion when talking about supporting Newcastle and David Kelly's goal in 1992 against Portsmouth.
Ronnie said: "I've said that hundreds of times since 1961 and simply can't stop going to support my team.
"This must be a sickness without a cure cos I ain't improving after 48 years, I'm too weak to resist.
"When David Kelly scored that miracle goal to keep us from the third division, I burst into tears of emotional relief.
"I looked behind me embarrassed, only to see quite a few other grown men wiping away tears.
"I once bumped into Ned at the Metro Centre, on crutches after being crocked playing for the mackems, and I told him.
"He laughed and said he'd made a few girls cry in his time, but never blokes."
Blog on the Tyne's wishes are with Ronnie family right now.
Rest in peace, Ronnie.
