Slang for the Newcastle football team (NUFC), due to their black and white strip.
I support the magpies.
Slang or nickname for the greatest footie in all the world. Newcastle} united are the pride of the geordie nation and are the reason to support soccer!
and its shearer on the ball for the magpies, he shoots and scores, what a superb strike into the sunderland net! And the toon army will celebrate this day for a long time to come!
