About this deal

Was at the Arsenal game here (nearly 45,000 attendance) recently and the view of the game from the stand was really good. No doubt people will have varying views on all of this, but hopefully this attempt at an explanation helps you to understand the purpose of the apostrophe in this context. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. To my understanding that is why the apostrophe appears, as an apostrophe of omission, accounting for the varying number of a’s in such a shout.

Whichever side you love to hate, this is a fair and unbiased history of the rivalry between Newcastle and Sunderland, going back as far as they do (and a little further). The eminent playwright George Bernard Shaw was one who wanted to abolish the apostrophe which, as ever, continues to create debate. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The ratings/reviews displayed here may not be representative of every listing on this page, or of every review for these listings. If you're writing for a Geordie audience, make sure you get this crucial bit of Geordie lingo right!Chants of ‘Ha’way the Lads’ tend to go for the single ‘a’ version of the word but in the chant Ha’way the Lads, Ha’way the Lads, Ha’way the Lads, Ha’way’ (and repeat) the first ‘Ha’way’ tends to see the opening syllable held a little longer as in ‘Haa’way’. These 4 or 5-star reviews represent the opinions of the individuals who posted them and do not reflect the views of Etsy. com, the Sell on Etsy app, and the Etsy app, as well as the electricity that powers Etsy’s global offices and employees working remotely from home in the US. Come to think of it, there’s a poster on here consistently saying ‘Gouranga’ at the end of their posts. And people from Middlesbrough (Teesside more generally) were referred to as Takems by the Makems, for their propensity to test the principle that possession is nine tenths of the law.

While rarely heard now, what is certain is that in days gone by supporters at the match would yell – after a deep breath – ‘Haaaaaaaway the Lads! No missing or damaged pages, no tears, possible very minimal creasing, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. Have a care" is a traditional battlefield warning, especially as adopted by Military/historical re-enactment groups. Up til now I always thought it was to do with Newcastle's support for King George (hence "Geordies") during the Jacobite Uprising, when "Sunderland welcomed the Scottish garrison whose soldiers subsequently besieged Newcastle"* - supporting the "Macs". Meaning 'come on' can be used either in the sense of travelling somewhere, or more commonly used at football matches as an expression to get your team to perform harder.Free Bets are paid as Bet Credits and are available for use upon settlement of bets to value of qualifying deposit.
