Here's a transcript of The Sun's report of last nights epic clash
between Tyneside powerhouse Newcastle and Glasgow Rangers, presented
partly as a salute to British journalism (:-)) but mostly as a salute
to Newcastle United, the hardest team in Britain, and surely Premier
League Champions 1994...

"Andy Cole grabbed the glory at Ibrox last night as Ally McCoist picked
up the cash.
A bumper crowd of 42,623 helped raise #500,000 for the Rangers forward
in his testimonial match.  The Scotland striker is recovering from the
broken leg he suffered last April and could not play.
But deadly Cole - angry he was never given a chance by Arsenal and who has
vowed to have his revenge on Gunners boss George Graham - was more than
able to step in as star man. He twice went close in the first half before
opening the scoring after 49 minutes by firing home a Peter Beardsley
cross.  Mark Hateley equalised for Rangers. But then that man Cole popped
up again after 66 minutes and flicked on for Scott Sellars to volley
the Geordies winner."

Scant mentions been given to Rangers efforts in this game - was it really
that one sided?  Surely not?  Not even a "Rangers battled bravely..."!!

OK, Spurs is next in line?
