NUFC Grafitti

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I am a grafitti enthusiast and wondered whether anybody knew of any interesting NUFC related grafitti in and around Newcastle?

 

I want to make a collection of photographs.

 

Anything from murals (I know about the one outside Scott's) to tags, slogans etc etc.

 

Please let me know...

Some one, I'm not going to snitch, painted Newcastle United on an outer wall at my secondary school. 

The next day at assembly the headmaster said 'We will find the person. We already know the person's size'. 

They never did find the person.

Someone once wrote 'Even Hitler feared the Toon Army' on my old workplace bogs. Someone also wrote

'Shakespeare came here to sit and think,

I came here to shit and stink'.

The latter was signed, 'The people's poet'. Not sure who wrote that one? :unsure:

Well, fuck me. 

Remember that mural in Killy near the flats (or was it the Garths?) that celebrated our famous victory in the Texaco Cup

Class :D I used to have a photo of just the mural. The amber collective / side gallery have it in one of their published photography books and I had the postcard bought from there

The paintings above went up in the early 1980s, can’t remember exactly when. 

I think the walls are still there, it’s been renamed Keegan Park, but they’ve painted over the originals. 

( just looked on Google Earth, and they’ve been painted over with graffiti).
