An unbelievable crowd of 50,793 torned oot for former resorve goalie Stevie Harper's testimonial @ St James' Park last neet!
Considerin' that he played less than 200 games for us in 20 years, it waz a remarkable tornoot!
Former greats like Tino Asprilla, David Ginola, Alan Shearer and Les Ferdinand were in wor team (The Entertainers) but sadly neetha side could muster a goal for the near capacity crowd!
A certain Di Canio played for AC Milan (The Invincibles) and waz booed loudly every time he touched the baall!
The loudest cheer of the neet came when Joey Barton made a crunchin' tackle on the mackem manager and he waz non too pleased aboot it aa can tell yoo!
Paulo had the last laugh though when he scored one of Milans penalties in the shootout to help then win the game! (2-1)
Aall the money raised went to charity with Harper gettin' a standin' ovation at the end of the match!
Well done Stevie!***yoo deserved it!
