His other work for them includes HOPE, BEAUTIFUL GAME – an exploration of the history and culture of football on Tyneside, a piece which sadly did not spur the author’s beloved Newcastle United to go out and actually win something – IN BLACKBERRY TIME (with Alan Parker, HAIR IN THE GATEand ONE WAY TICKET TO PALOOKAVILLE.
