Perhaps it’s just my generation but I couldn’t imagine that being sung on the Meadow End now. However, I do recall loads of Premier League kit tops and people getting excited about the results on transistor radios whilst the rest of us were trying to watch the match!
I may be very wrong, but my memory is that Danny wrote the famous song certainly after the Newcastle game, and possibly even around the time of the West Ham game when we were in Div 3.
I recall him conducting the Meadow End (the terrace and not this forum) during that fateful match against Brighton in 1997. It’s an absolute legacy to Danny that his song went on to be sung for so long.
