TOTT profile - El Toro



I remember fondly the moment as Alan Shearer stood on the sidelines of his testimonial night having just scored a last minute penalty to give his Newcastle XI a fitting win against Celtic. Opera singer Keedie took to the pitch to give an emotional rendition of Andrea Bocelli's 'Time To Say Goodbye'. So you'd think that everytime I've heard that song since, I've always had that amazing night in my thoughts, right? Well not quite...

Whenever I hear that song now, it's another famous Newcastle centre forward that springs to mind and gives me a little chuckle. Thinking about our very own Tino and his famous goodbye thread that brought the whole of ToTT together and had us in stitches!

A few weeks ago we caught up with the man who's had more comeback's than Shaggy, the artist formally known as Asprilla32, El Toro... and as you'd expect he had a lot to say...



Hiya Mate, So we know you as Asprilla32, Tino and El Toro but let's start by asking your real name...

it's Joe

and your Age: 22

Occupation: Part time glazier used to be full time.

Mile roundtrip to an average game: 570 ish.

How long have you supported NUFC?: Since i was 5.

How many games do you get to (home and away) each season?: 3 minimum, 6 maxium.

Where do you sit in SJP?: Usually Leazes End, sat in Gallowgate and East Stand aswell but never sat in Milburn.

Moment that`s made you proud to be a Geordie?: Not a geordie, moment that made me proud is when European teams came to St James Park, i miss them games.

Favourite game of last season: Suprising one here but I would say Peterborough away in the league, 3-2 victory that all but sealed the title.

Favourite game at SJP: Newcastle 1-0 Juventus, Champions League.

Favourite goal of all time: No comparison, Alan Shearers volley against Everton at St James Park.

Your Toon Hero: I would have to say Asprilla just because of the hat trick against some team called Barcelona?!

Ever met a player: - if so what were they like?: Met Robert Lee once and he seemed a genuine fella as did his father.

How long have you been a ToTT poster? Jeeez, too long some would say! I would say 3 years? Not sure though!

Why did you join? For the love of Newcastle.

What is your handle (name) on ToTT and why did you choose it?

El Toro after Jose Enrique aka The Bull. Was formely Asprilla32, the reason was because Tino was my hero and the 32 bit which explains the score that we beat Barcelona by.

Best Poster on ToTT? So many, Platini,St Pedro Basin, BMM. Ok i will stop a*** licking now.

Most Annoying Poster on ToTT? God honest truth i don't really find anyone that annoying, i love them all really.

Best thread you`ve seen in your time on ToTT? Without doubt the Hatem Ben Arfa one when he was spotted by a poster at Newcastle Airport.

NUFC prediction for next season? Top 8.

Who do you think will win the League Next season? Man United

Who do you think is the best player in the Premiership? Best defender: Kompany, Best Midfielder: Nasri, Best Forward Rooney.

Which game are you looking forward to most next season? All of them, it's the Premier League!

Tell us a chant you`d like to hear belted round the terraces? No new ones as such but i think it's essential that Brucey gets his moment now and again. Cheer up Steeeevey Bruuuuuce...

If you could have a pint with any poster on here - which would you choose and why? Cromscott, i think he would be totally different to what you think. He would probably be a laugh aswell.

One fantasy signing you`d like to see in a Toon shirt? David Villa

One realistic signing you`d be chuffed with next season? Don't know if this is realistic but Dimitar Berbatov.

Tell us a Joke. Sunderland are a good team....Ok it was s*** but it will do!

Who's your Dream Woman? So many but i would probably go for Cheryl Cole, mmmmmmmmm.

How would you feel about Mike Ashley, if we won a major trophy in the next 2 years? (asked by Poisoned_Monkey) I feel nothing for him, i only have Newcastle as an interest.

What would make you start to spend money at the ground again - Apart from Ashley leaving? (asked by Toon_NoMatterWhat) Nothing, i never buy food in the ground.

If you could play alongside any NUFC player past or present, who would it be? (asked by Ken_nufc) Left wing just infront of Enrique, at least i could cross it when he gives the ball to me.

Would You Do Jan? (asked by LMM) Erm, probably.

Apart from SJP, whats your favourite football stadium? (asked by CameronNufc) City Of Manchester stadium.

Would you welcome back Andy Carroll to Newcastle and the Number 9 shirt? Why/Why Not? (asked by Morty) Never,No,Never,No!

What question would you like the next poster to be asked?: What players do you see leaving this summer?



Cheers Tino!
