Biscuits A_B's view of Newcastle:

I go up there most weekends mate. They're all mouth. In fact every Geordie I've ever met has been a big mouthed gobsh*te. Spitefull little people. If they're not at your feet, they're at your throat...........but only if there's a team of them. When I was with the cops up there, it was a laugh a minute. Even the Police live outside Newcastle. Sh*tehole that it is. The Bigg Market? Yeah, great night out if you want glassed by a lass and your wallet stolen. No matter what the council spends money on, the little sh*tes wreck it within days. The Metro is a no go area for women travelling alone, that's when the local youth haven't wrecked it. You daren't park your car in most areas as they'll have it away or parts of it. Newcastle? What a f*cking tip.

Biscuits A_B may or may not have an agenda against Newcastle. Personally I think that as a city it is no worse than any other in Britain. What's your view?


It's not as bad as Darlington nor M'boro, but it is a tip and it's full of layabouts, car thieves and smack heads. Try working there at night, then you'll see it for what it is. Now what part of the statement which you have highlighted is it that you disagree with?

Pleasant enough city. Reminds me a bit of Glasgow in that it's quite 'industrial' (for want of a better word) but also has done wonders recently to re-develop itself.

I'm from Edinburgh and Newcastle is nowhere near my home city's level of beauty but it is quite striking and I've always found the Geordies to be cracking company. A night out there is fun but I've never stayed longer than a weekend though and can't comment further.
Maybe the only way to settle it is to have an arrse crawl there!
From very limited experience (Quayside!), a great craic for a night out, cracking women and (fairly) friendly locals. They took the piss out of my accent and I RIPPED the piss out of theirs!!! Did pass through a few shi*holes on the way to town though! But you get that wherever you go! My choice quote from that night:(In a Geordie accent) "What in the name of Peter Beardsley is goin on here like!" Classic.
Just as anywhere, go with the wrong attitude and you'll find trouble. If you don't go looking for trouble, you probably won't find it.

Treat the Geordies as equals, and remember that it's their home that you're in, and you'll make some great aquaintances. Tell them that they live in a slum and that they are a bunch of thieving skivers and you deserve what you get.

If you want to make derogatory comments about Geordies and Newcastle, wait until you're out of Newcastle. The Geordie can have a laugh about your comments then, but not while he is on his home turf - it's a matter of pride.

Swap Geordies/Newcastle for Scousers/Liverpool, Brummies/Birmingham or whatever, it's the same anywhere.
Biscuits - it very much depends where you go, how you go there and what you're looking for. I can point you at some of the best and worst places on the planet and they're all within a couple of miles of the city centre. My current occupation is the only job I've done longer than being a bouncer in Newcastle - honest. I may have a biased view of the place then.

I do go back to where I grew up to remind myself of why I left. I'm not a snob - just like to see 'Kylie-Anne and Donna-Marie' with their scummy kids and quality bling (mind - good 9 carat only - none of yer shite) and think I was lucky enough to escape from. It is a compact city with everything in close proximity - and the coast and the beautiful countryside close by. The Bigg Market does need bombing, but there is so much more to the city. My mates there are the closest, people the friendliest (or the worst - same anywhere) and the cost of living is bearable.
i agree on Biggs market , i thought it was over rated, i did like the Hadrians wall aspect as well as visiting Segudunum (Wallsend) it does have its good spot, but i dont feel the urge to go back in a hurry , however if there is an ARRSE crawl there i may be interested.
I went out with a slut of a girl at the uni there many years ago. I distinctly remember being in the town centre one Saturday when Newcastle Utd had lost at home. It was the season they had something like 12 games undefeated at the start of the season and this was their first defeat.

There were dozens of aggresive pissed up Newcastle Utd fans basically scaring the shite out of daily shoppers. There were Police there trying to keep order. All from a lousy game of football.

The town is shite, the people are brilliant but the footie supportes with drink inside of them are just 'anchors. In 92-93 it was great on the piss but I wouldn't feel safe now - but that's UK wide not just Newcastle.
I went there twice in the 70s and 80s and enjoyed every minute of it. Very friendly locals; the women were classy, full of life and character and there was a real spirit about the place. The local dockyard workers didn't scowl at you the way they did in Portsmouth, Plymouth and Chatham. The true northern spirit possessed of real people was alive and well at this time. I don't know if that atmosphere survives today, but something like that doesn't disappear in a few years, and I fancy Biscuits_AB is talking out of his bottom once again. Maybe he had a bad experience with a traffic warden or something and has decided to blame the entire population for his misfortune.
Well as Newcastle seems to get voted top party City in UK on a regular basis Biscuits is talking out of his arrse. Methinks he probably did the impossible and failed to score there. Like any inner city, Newcastle has its problems the difference is, we don't have Billions of Pounds of taxes subsidising our population like say Scotland.. The reality is, you get out of the toon what you take with you, if you go looking for a good time, you'll have a great time, you go looking for trouble, you'll get it in spades as the Krays found to their cost.

Just because we are friendly and have a sense of humour is no reason to think we'll not kick your fecking teeth in if the need arises!!

I wonder what fine part of the UK Biscuits hails from?
Been there a couple times, loved the views of the Mournes.

The other one or the other other one is no worse than anywhere else. Had some good Geordie mates and took the advice of one in particular. "Always marry an ugly bird" apparently there was no shortage of them in Newcastle but he always proved his point by asking who wanted to fcuk his missus. Nobody wanted to, I don't think he really wanted to either.

One complaint, the jukebox had 50 selections but why oh fcuk were 49 of them 'Fog on the Tyne' by Lindisfarne?

And the 50th was the version with Paul Gasciogne.

Yes but thats the definitive version!!
And the most annoying.

Still he lasted longer on the record than he did as a manager.
