    originally from Manchester and live in York now, HATE newcastle as it seems seriously like Chav City. Its almost as bad as liverpool and why the hell they have that awful 'Angel Of The North' i dont no...talk about an ugly pile of crap.

    If you get the chance hop on down to Auto Assembly as theres tons of UK fans who meet up there

    a) Art is in the eye of the beholder. I like it, actually.
    b) You obviously haven't spent more than 2 minutes in Newcastle, and just down the Bigg Market on a Friday night. There's no more chavs in Newcastle than Manchester. And yeah. Do you actually just post to get a rise out of people?
