  1. Was there that night to see Newcastle get promoted. Everyone associated with Plymouth Argyle were a credit to their club. They showed real class. Here’s what appeared on our site the next day:

    20th April 2010 – Plymouth Celebrations –
    Whilst the Newcastle management team, players and supporters celebrated on the pitch at Home Park last night, spare a thought for our hosts who were relegated after a six year stay in the Championship.
    The sporting behaviour of Plymouth Argyle Football Club and their fans should not be forgotten. Prior to kick-off a banner was paraded on the pitch congratulating Newcastle on winning promotion. Following the final whistle with home fans coming to terms with relegation to League One and our support celebrating on the pitch the announcer played ‘We Are The Champions’, ‘Blaydon Races’ and ‘Local Hero’ over the loudspeaker system. A terrific gesture. We wish our friends at Plymouth the best of luck for next season.

    Newcastle fans, absolute LEGENDS! Football needs fans like yours and ours and for the makers of this video lets hope it makes an impact. Real football fans don’t want to see what is happening to us at Argyle happen to anyone! Cheers!
    Come on You Greens!!!!!

    Just watched the video and I have to admit to having a lump in my throat. At this moment, I still don’t know if I will have a team to support next season but I sure as hell will never forget the thoughts and comments from you guys.
    Like Craig said – you are all true legends and a credit to the game. Thank you one and all. Lets hope we can meet you again on the pitch some day.
    COYG!!!!

    Thanks for the video and thanks for the support – its greatly appreciated.
    Its good to know that although the minority grab the headlines with their drunken behaviour, the vast majority of fans are friendly and respect how much all fans love and cherish their clubs.
