Newcastle United vs Everton

St James’ Park, Wednesday 13th December 7.45pm


Last time Newcastle played Everton in the premier league and it was not pretty, we got beat 3-0.  It’s safe to say here at Nights Out In Newcastle don’t want a repeat of the last result but does it look likely?  Well every pundit across the land will be voicing their option but if it’s in-depth expert football expertise you want you are not in the right place.  What we do know is entertainment though! So whether you are from the North East or visiting from Liverpool we have everything you need for a great day out.

So check out our brand new Match Day Guide.  

Jam packed full of helpful information, a map of the ground, travel links and where to go for food and drink.  So if your starving on the day we have the best places in Toon to grab some grub.  Or if you’re looking for a decent pub where you can get a quick pint and still get change from a fiver we have just the thing for you!  

We know it is all to hard for all those travelling fans to get around in Night Out In Newcastle, so we’ve included our handy Geordie Translator.  No guide to Newcastle would be complete without it to help you avoid any confusing conversations when your trying to find the nearest kebab shop!  So here is a few commonly used sayings you’ll need to get to grasp with:


Howay, Man – probably the most used and well known this simply means come on or hurry up.  Howay, man! Wha ye doing?’

Gan – go

Doon – down

Toon – Newcastle.  ‘I’m gannin doon the toon’.

Mortal – drunk.  ‘I was completely frickin mortal last meet!’

Paggered – very tired. ‘I’m completely paggered the neet.”

Tash On – to kiss someone.  Howay, Man! I’m trying to get me Tash On with this lass!’

Gadgie – a man.  ‘What’s that Gadgie over there dooin?’

Radgie – bad tempered person .  ‘Watch out for that Radgie Gadgie.

Workyticket – someone being mischievous or annoying on purpose.  ‘That gadgie is a reet workyticket.’

Hacky – dirty look.  ‘That gadgie is givin me reet hackies.’ 

Scran – food.  ‘Proper in the mood for some scran now.’

Monkeys Blood – The raspberry/strawberry sauce on an ice cream (probably the one that takes even the most of acclimatised people by surprise). ‘Can I have monkey’s blood on me cornet?’

Netty – the toilet.  ‘Whees in the netty.’


So night out aside what can we expect from the game?  Newcastle have been scoring first and early but then failing to take advantage with some sloppy goals.  This fixture has proved to have some high scoring affairs is the past and we think it will prove the same.  Rooney has a history of scoring against us too so we are predicting a goal-fest.  We think Newcastle will win at the whistle 3-2.  But then what do we know?  

Either way, whoever you support we hope you have a great time (and Newcastle win! Of Course).

Think you know the score?  Let us here your prediction, follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates, option and more.  Use our hashtag #NightsOutInNewcastle to share your nights out, photos and banter.
