Newcastle United vs Leicester City FC

St James’ Park, Saturday 9th December 5.30pm


Last time Newcastle played Leicester in the premier league and it was not pretty, we got beat 1-0.  In fact you have to back to 2014 for a win over them, with 4 defeats in the league and FA cup, with 8 goals for them and not one for us!  With that in mind does Leicester count as a bogey club?  Well over the more longterm records it is fairly even, if not slightly in our favour.

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 Leicester 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.  You can pretty much guarantee we will concede in the 45th minute these days so that is a given.  But we have been showing more spirit and teeth of late.  Our prediction is a plucky but ultimately futile 2-2 draw.  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.
