Move over Paddington Bear – Amanda Staveley and King Rafa have made a claim for the best Christmas window in Newcastle.
The Back Page shop on St Andrew’s Street in the city centre unveiled it’s latest Newcastle United-themed festive display on Friday.
Complete with Christmas lights and boss Rafa Benitez sitting proudly atop the tree, the window is packed to the brim with Geordie memorabilia.
And sat just below with the gifts is Amanda Staveley – with a message reading ‘All we want for Christmas is you’.
The shop’s display has been inspired in recent years by the festive John Lewis advert, but this time around shop manager Dave Thorpe said there was only one choice for who would be under the tree.
Dave added: “The window for the last two or three years has just been a bit of a carry on.
“This year with the talk about Amanda Staveley and the takeover , it’s tied in nicely. Everyone in the shop chips in with ideas and we thought we would try and have a bit of a laugh.
“We thought it would be fitting as well as she would be the perfect Christmas present for Newcastle United fans.
“We want to get the message out there that we really want her to come and help the club out.”
Since posting the reveal on social media on Friday, Dave believes the display has been well received by the Toon Army.
