This is becoming a nice habit. A big true faith welcome to Matt Ritchie who has joined United from Bournemouth and would appear to be a direct replacement for Andros Townsend who has decided to throw his career under a bus with talent-destroyer Alan Pardew.

On behalf of everyone associated with this fanzine may we welcome Matt to Newcastle United FC. We all hope he has a long and successful career with the club and comes to love the city and the wider region.

All the best matt and welcome.
