It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a Newcastle fan with too much disposable income! (shop.nufc.co.uk)
There are plenty of ways to describe Newcastle fans. Loyal. Passionate. Constantly topless during games. And willing to buy absolutely anything with their club's crest on it.
Alongside official Newcastle Utd lingerie, adult onesies and overly optimistic "Europe Guaranteed" t-shirts, the online store now offers a brand-new creation: Whey Aye Man. Here's the shouty, grammatically-troubled product description of the new superhero on Tyneside:
OFFICIAL NEWCASTLE UNITED WHEY AYE MAN HERO SUIT. ITS TIME FOR A NEW SUPER HERO. WE HAVE HAD SHEARER. FERDINAND. WOR JACKIE AND SUPERMAC NOW WE HAVE WHEY AYE MAN....
Geordies who are keen to show their superhuman allegiance can pick up Whey Aye Man for just £49.99, plus £4.99 for the afro wig (which surely cannot be aerodynamic for a flying superhero).
Unfortunately, the costume is only available up to size XL, so the club's owner and his portly friend may not get the opportunity to become costumed crime fighters...
