Newcastle vs Crystal Palace

Newcastle take on old foes Palace as Ashley puts the club up for sale

Saturday 21st October –3.00 pm kick off


With all the hype around news of a possible take over of the club and new owners you could be forgiven for forgetting there is a game on this weekend.  Newcastle take on Palace this Saturday with both teams in relatively high spirits.  Newcastle after a rare away draw against Southampton and Palace after their first win of the season.  The match looks set to be an end to end one with some interesting subplots, such as Andros Townsend and Yohan Cabaye’s return to Newcastle. 

Last time these two teams met we won 1-0.  It’s safe to say here at Nights Out In Newcastle we would love a repeat result but does it 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 London 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 Hank Marvin on the day we have the best places in Toon to grab some bait.  Or if you’re looking for a Battlecruiser where you can get a quick pint and still get change from a Lady Godiva 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?  Well we think goals, and lots of, would you Adam and Eve it?  The combination of Newcastle’s new-found form under Rafa Benitez and Palace’s shaky defence.  A fast flowing, hectic and high scoring affair!  Palace looked good in their last game but can they take this new found positivity on the road?  Throw in a few side stories such as Cabaye and Townsend’s return to the Toon and you’re in for a real treat.

Our prediction is Newcastle to half-inch it at the whistle with a cheeky 3-2 win.  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.
