Newcastle Gateshead

When 5-year-old Michael Chaplin landed in a strange city of ships in the late 1950s, he looked
in vain for something that would make him feel at home.

Then, one Saturday afternoon, it came the roar of a crowd and a football team to support.
Young Michael became an avid Newcastle United fan and has remained one, if sometimes
disenchanted, for over sixty years.

In this football memoir with a difference, the celebrated playwright and screenwriter tells the story of his six-decade love affair with the club, each chapter recreating an iconic Newcastle match: the players who graced the game, the managers in the dugout and the backdrop outside the stadium - both the changing face of Newcastle and the ups and downs of Michael’s own life and career.
