Its probably something of a tired cliche to describe football as the world game but it unquestionably is. There’s no greater example of that than people from around the world inexplicably developing an affection for Newcastle United FC. When John Milton, our Heaton exile now living in Rio told me about a group of Brazilian lads who have formed a real affection for United.

I could barely believe it.

But its true. In the current issue of true faith (TF129) Andrew Sousa and Raphael Felice explain their devotion to our beloved Newcastle United. Many thanks tom John for his translation from Porteuguse to English.
