Overview

Over the past few years, no other set of football supporters has ridden such an emotional rollercoaster as those of Newcastle United. Black and White Army follows these supporters through one of the most memorable seasons in recent memory.

This is the story of being a football fan. It's about obsession and passion, identity and belonging, glory and heartache, and laughter and tears. It's about balancing the highs against the lows, being at home and travelling away, celebrating glorious goals and idolising brilliant players, eating half-time pies and drinking post-match pints, holding your breath and quickening your heart, punching the air and shouting yourself hoarse, sometimes winning and often losing, but always keeping the faith, and having your life and hopes and dreams shaped by the club you love.

In addition to chronicling the author's own obsession, the book contains the contributions of hundreds of Newcastle United supporters from across the world. Funny and true, they lay bare the soul of the football fan, and leave the reader in no doubt that football is not 'only a game' - because no game matters enough to break your heart.

First published following season 2002/03, this tenth anniversary edition includes new sections to bring the story of the Black and White Army right up to date for season 2012/13.
