North East football top appears in the new Gal Gadot Netflix film Heart of Stone!

Published

on

Netflix have released a brand new film starring Gal Gadot, titled “Heart of Stone”. The American spy action thriller is centred around Rachel Stone, an intelligence operative who stands between her powerful global peacekeeping organization and the loss of its most valuable and dangerous asset.

A certain clip from the film has been going around Twitter recently though due to the costume of one of its characters.

During an intense chase scene where Rachel Stone (Gal Gadot) is fleeing from the pursuing gunmen hunting her down, one of the characters can be seen to be wearing none other than Middlesbrough’s home shirt from the 09/10 season!

One Twitter user wrote, “@Borohow the hell did this happen? Sat watching the new @GalGadot film and a bloody Boro fan is trying to kill her!!!”

Loosedays owners explained what lead to the cancelled Loosefest

Published

on

Loosefest, the festival ran by popular company Loosedays was set to take place last weekend following the success of last years festival on the Town Moor in Newcastle. However, on the opening day of the festival, it was cancelled at the last minute with little to no warning. In a recent podcast, the owners of the festival and owners of company Loosedays have spoken out about the cancellation of the festival and how it came about.

 

Speaking on the hours leading up to the festival, Owner Dean Saunders had this to say, “it was about 3am (Saturday morning) when I left, and I remember leaving the site and there was a real feeling of pride from everyone on site that despite the 5 weeks of rain, it was pulled off. ”I got up the next day but it had been raining a lot during the night and it all started to quickly unravel from there. That heavy rainfall during the night had undone a lot of the work that everyone had put in. “Because of that extra rainfall it became impossible and a little too dangerous as fire exits became a bit too dangerous with there being potholes. “It became to unsafe for it to go ahead, it was heartbreaking and we were absolutely devastated and straight away it was how can we react as quickly as possible to make sure everyone is aware and to find a solution.”

 

Within the podcast, the owners go on to credit the city for pulling together and getting people set up in clubs across the city, with TupTup, Digital, Riverside and Chinawhite being mentioned by the pair. Despite the disaster on the day, refunds have been issued out swiftly with people giving credit to the owners for how they handled it and providing a good weekend for the paying customers as promised.

Sean Longstaff warns Amazon documentary will make rivals jealous

Published

on

The fly-on-the-wall documentary that followed Newcastle throughout the 2022/23 season is to be released later tomorrow, with viewers – and rivals – getting an inside look at St James’ Park. Sean Longstaff has warned rivals will want to “tear down” Newcastle this season – as a behind the scenes documentary is set to divide football fans.

 

The Geordie midfielder says the club is prepared for a backlash on and off the pitch after their fourth placed finish clinched Champions League football. Prime Video will broadcast behind the scenes footage from last season on Thursday in a four-part expose. ‌It included Saudi PIF business chief Yasir Al Rumayyan saying he wants to be “No1” and denying he has any influence over the day to day running of the club, as he is portrayed as one of the saviours of the club. Part-owner Amanda Staveley is filmed negotiating the £40m signing of Anthony Gordon as a staff member says that Yasir “loves” Anthony.

 

Longstaff said: “The more successful you are, the more people want to tear you down. Inside the club and the team, we’re as tight as you can be. We don’t let anything in. “Even on the first day back, that was the manager’s big message – we have to stick together. If it doesn’t go as smoothly as last year, we have to stick together, and we know we’ve got a good enough squad to come out of it.” The first part of a 4-part documentary series releases tomorrow on Prime Video and will release each week. Are you looking forward to watching the documentary and viewing behind the scenes at the club? –
