‘Stamp Collector’ Boots Banned

Reporter Chris Wright writes on the "Who Ate All The Pies?" website that, "Newcastle centre-half Steven Taylor has been banned from wearing a pair of specially-made boots with 'The Stamp Collector' stitched on them for Sunday’s North-east derby clash against Sunderland over fears they may incite the ire of the Black Cats faithful."

According to Wright, "The personalised message is a reference to Taylor’s admission in the build-up to last season’s Newcastle-Sunderland derby that he 'would rather be a stamp collector' than watch Sunderland play."
