Many plaudits have been directed at manager Chris Hughton and the players in the past few weeks for what they have achieved on the pitch, and rightly so. But has there been a greater force behind us, driving us towards success this season? Psychic expert Dean ‘Midas’ Maynard believes so and cites the positive thinking that has increasingly emanated from areas of the club as a major contributing factor behind the stunning season the team have ended up having.

Some of our long term readers may remember that we last spoke with Dean back in December, and he tipped us to lift the title way back then, even as we sat amongst a sea of what appeared to be some dissappointing results at the time. It turned out he was right all along, something I’m more than happy about as we prepare to recieve the Championship trophy in front of the home crowd at St James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.

Dean has an impressive track record of predicting the fortunes of celebrities and sports teams from around the world. He was part of the ‘Bring back Beckham’ campaign that resulted in David Beckham being reinstated to the England squad in 2007 and famously predicted that Stoke City would survive and thrive in the Premier League despite many people doubting the ability of the team. Dean also enjoys a track record of success in the Grand National and has beaten a panel of professional race tipsters for the last 4 years running. He also does a lot of charity work, including association with The Meningitis Trust, Clic: Caring for Children with Cancer, Comic Relief, St Teresa’s Hospice and the one that is most personal to me being a former Prudhoe resident, The Megan Armstrong Appeal.

Here at, we decided to catch up with Durham lad to see what he has been up to, and what the future holds. (more…)
