Toon Fans "No Patience"?

Last updated : 10 September 2006 By Footy Mad - Editor

Newcastle fans have not won a domestic honour since 1955, or the "top flight" league since 1927 ... so don't try and tell me the Geordies are short of patience!

Bracewell: "Oba Martins and Giuseppe Rossi make their home debuts, and I hope the fans are patient, because there is not enough patience in football these days. But the two new boys will be looking forward to playing at St James' Park. And hopefully they can produce the goods.

"Since Glenn has come in it has been really positive but the expectations have also gone up.

"With Alan Shearer retired and Michael Owen out injured there have been some difficult times. But the team will be looking to get some good results which can breed some confidence."
