Geordie targets a Toon friendly

Recommended Posts

IT’S A MATCH made in heaven that John Carver hopes one day will turn into a reality.


And while “Newcastle United v Toronto FC” may look a little unorthodox on the fixture list, nothing would give Carver greater joy.


The Geordie did his best to get United over to Toronto this summer for the Major League All Star game which takes place at his current “home” stadium, BMO Field, on July 24 this year.


The best players in the MLS, as voted for by the fans, will take on West Ham United.


However, Carver hopes one day he can take on the Geordies.


He says: “It would be a great game to have one day.


“I know what the Newcastle fans are like and we have a lot of them in Toronto who come wearing their United tops.


“I always make a point in picking them out and giving them a wave.


“But to have a lot more of them here would be great.”


And Carver compares the Toronto fans with those of Newcastle.


He added: “They are very similar.


“They are vocal and they get behind their team, just like Newcastle fans do.


“In fact, they are probably the equivalent to the Toon Army in MLS.”
