    St James' Park could host Rugby World Cup 2015 Evening Chronicle, October 9th 2012 TOON fans at St James’ Park may have to swap chants of Blaydon Races for the Flower of Scotland, if the city hosts Rugby World Cup games. Both the Newcastle United ground and Sunderland’s Stadium of Light have...
  2. Newcastle Metro Area
    Ok, I thought we could do with this. Our bid to be a host city for the England World Cup bid. So anything that may have an effect on this can be discussed here. Do you think it's a good idea?, how can it be encouraged?, what additional facilities would we need in place?
  3. Sunderland and Durham
    I realise that the departure of Niall has been mentioned on the SAFC thread but I feel that the big man deserves his own thread. He has done so much for SAFC and the city in general God knows where the club would be now if Niall had not formed his Drumaville board of directors six years ago. I...

    . I couldn't find a logical thread to put this on (which is unusual, as we now seem to have threads that can cover most eventualities on the Newcastle Area Urbanism front) so I have started this new one. This can, if big things DO start happening, end up as the 'Project Thread' for the...

  9. Hull and Humber
    It's only right i guess :)
  10. Hull and Humber
    Well there is one for the soccer team so why not?
  11. Completed Projects
    This planning application, though for Sunderland Football Club, appears to fall within the area covered by the Newcastle Metro Area Forum. So, in the interests of fairness, we should include it as a 'project', with its own project thread on here, I feel. There is also, understandably, a...
  12. Sunderland and Durham
    I think this stadium needs it's own thread, It's such an important part of Sunderland and it's future. I went on a tour of the place today, Thanks to my niece as a xmas present, and the stadium really is brilliant. It does so much outside of football that benefits many people. Anyway Niall...
  13. Hull and Humber
    Ideally we could have the HCFC thread moved from the Sports section. I can't find anywhere to put details of the new North Ferriby Academy and Training ground developments in our subforum though, so I've started a new Tigers thread. If you are a subscribed member of the official city website...

    Right, if the Mags and the Mackems are having a football thread then us Smoggies should also have one! :D News today of another loan signing by Wee Gordon: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/m/middlesbrough/8344230.stm Set to make his debut at Palace on Saturday. I'm off to the...
  15. Sunderland and Durham
    There has been a lot of talk about this being the last season of the Football Echo because of falling sales. I feel it would be a shame if after 102 years of production that this Sunderland institution died. Only Portsmouth Southampton and Sheffield still have an equalivent of the Footy Echo...

    Gateshead Football Club today held a press launch to unveil the site and plans for their eagerly awaited new stadium development in the centre of town. To build on its goal to take the Club back into the Football League Gateshead FC will build a new state-of-the-art stadium on a derelict site...
  17. Sunderland and Durham
    You just know that when things are going so well and we seem on the verge of a good run (in the Prem) that a game like this weekends against Birmingham City will end in defeat. Not sure who should come in to replace Cattermole? Think Bruce will go for Henderson and id probably agree with that...
  18. Newcastle Metro Area
    Ok, I know some of us will not want this thread, and some of us will, but the whole point in this Sub-Forum was to be able to create threads which we wish to view. So anyway, whats people predictions for tonights game?
