A Newcastle United fan and season ticket holder missed all six of the Toon’s goals at the weekend due to his Sunday league football cup final going to extra time and penalties.

His team didn’t even win. So he missed out on two victories that fateful day.

Michael’s delay meant he wasn’t making his way through the Tyne Tunnel and towards St James’ Park until near to two o’clock, despite his league game being a half 10 kick-off.

He finally got to his seat in the stadium at 27 minutes past two, after the first five goals had been scored.

Speaking to Simon Pryde on BBC Newcastle, Michael said: “It was a bit of a tight morning, so I managed to miss all of five goals in the first half and then I needed the toilet in the second half and I missed the last one.

“So the only goal I got to see was Harry Kane’s,” he laughs.

“But it was some good football from what I saw.”

When asked about what his mates had to say about him missing the most euphoric 20 minutes of any Newcastle United fan’s life, Michael did admit he was getting quite a bit of stick. But also that it was a feeling he was used to:“I’m normally always late anyways so I’m always liable to miss one goal- but six is taking the mick I think

Simon then asked if his experience on Sunday was enough to change his habits, to which Michael quickly replied: “Probably not.”

Admitting defeat while laughing, Michael concluded: “I had a really bad day yesterday... but we’ve got European football to look forward to next year anyway.”
