Sack the board or tread the boards?

As a fan, being relegated is something you’d rather forget about. And for Newcastle fans, reminiscing about last season, in the pub, is surely a no go area. Most are still trying to convince themselves that last season never even happened. But for a select few fans pantomime season has come early, and they’ve decided the best way to deal with their shocking 08/09 campaign is to make a play out of it.

It documents the series of unfortunate events surrounding the Toon’s season and follows four dedicated Magpies’ fans and their bid to come to terms with life after relegation. It even features imaginary encounters with Kevin Keegan, Mike Ashley and Alan Shearer!

And yes, this is a true story!
