Newcastle United 2002/2003 season was typically nail-biting and unpredictable. The side was involved in a thrilling Premiership campaign, and made an historic charge into the last 16 of the Champions' League. Yet they were eliminated from both the FA and Worthington Cups at the first hurdle. Through it all the 'Toon Army' remain hopelessly optimistic, defiantly witty and fiercely loyal.
'Black & White Army' follows these supporters of Newcastle United throughout that season and reveals the agony and the absurdity of being a 21st Century football fan. Travelling with the 'Toon Army' through domestic and European competitions via Barcelona and Bolton, Manchester and Madrid, Sarajevo and Southampton, the book offers a cliff-hanging narrative, backed by an eye-opening analysis of why football fans are as they are.
