Have your say

Don’t miss the Football Echo – out tomorrow morning – with the biggest and best preview of the Tyne-Wear derby.

Chris Young speaks exclusively to Alfred N’Diaye about the challenge of facing Newcastle – and some of his French former team-mates.

Boss Paolo Di Canio looks ahead to the big game, and discusses his changes to training policies, in a series of articles, plus we also speak to Phil Bardsley, Adam Johnson, Simon Mignolet and others, plus the Newcastle view comes from Shola Ameobi, Danny Simpson and Alan Pardew.

As well as the derby, we have all your usual favourites, including Marco Gabbiadini’s exclusive column, Yesterdays (looking back on a fabulous win over Manchester United at Easter in 1977) and Tony Gillan’s unmissable View From The Bridge.

We also have the best local football coverage, including celebration pictures of Shotton Royal George and Chester St Cuthbert’s Friday night cup finals, as well as our eight-page Junior Football Echo, reflecting the latest action in the Russell Foster Youth League.

Get the Football Echo tomorrow – it’s the best buy of the weekend.

Ha’way the lads!
