Geordie fans showed the nation how to support a football team
I wonder if we'll be seeing less of Stan Collymore firing home at the Kop now?
You have to doubt it, given the nation's enjoyment of walloping Newcastle United at any given opportunity.
And that 4-3 defeat at Anfield has been rammed down our throats in the same way as Ronnie Radford at blinking Hereford.
I admit it, sometimes, they get plenty of invitation to do so but I just hope that Newcastle United get the credit they deserve for their part in what was the greatest ever Premier League match following the incredible and amazing 4-4 draw with Arsenal.
If this week, Carroll-gate to the Geordie public, has been an emotional rollercoaster then you have to wonder how to describe this!
At 4-0 down you have to say Newcastle were as woeful as any team to grace the sacred black and white jerseys.
But by full time they looked like one of the best teams ever to be scribbled on a team sheet.
Indeed, Arsenal didn't know what had hit them by the end and Newcastle left the field disappointed not to WIN the game.
Smug Arsenal fans chanted "You might as well go home" at 3-0 but by the end of it they were like church mice as they squirmed in their seats up on Level 7.
After a week of woe SOME of the media troops that descended on Tyneside - at four down at half-time - were revelling in Newcastle's despair as they looked forward to rubbing Toon fans' noses in the dirt a little bit more.
They were loving it as Arsenal's goals rolled in.
By the end they had faces like smacked backsides.
By the end they had been blown away by two things.
Newcastle United's never say die spirit and the full, full, full impact of the Geordie public who helped lift their team.
For them it was an education of what real supporters actually are.
Yes, a handful of Toon fans did walk out - but not the masses you might read in some of the papers today.
But the majority stayed at St James' Park and whipped the place into a frenzy.
They could easily have protested throughout the whole game and laid into the boardroom regime for selling Carroll.
Yet the majority for the majority of the match got behind the players and stunned Toon stars admitted aftewards they were taken aback by it.
I've been going to St James' for my entire life but that atmosphere was right up there at the top of the pile.
Mark Lawrenson on Match of the Day commented: "It's a good job Nolan's effort late on didn't go in, because the stands would have fell down."
You can't disagree with him!
Even as I write this now a day later, I'm still actually shaking a bit.
I've seen nothing like it which is actually a fact as United became the first team to come back from four down to get something.
From Barton's ice cool penalty kicking, to Best's prowess and then Tiote's wonder goal - all of it should be replayed on TV for years to come.
I wonder if ESPN have it lined up for their ESPN classic channel in the same day they did with Newcastle v Stevenage just a day after the result?
Answers on a postcard please.
All in all, this game was an example to everybody in any walk of life...don't give up on anything.
And with 14 games to go that has to be Newcastle's stance on this incredible campaign of ups and downs.
