As two young Newcastle fans, myself and my friend Besty watched, mouths agape, as Newcastle United put 5 goals past Manchester United. The whole spectacle was rounded off by what a lot of Newcastle fans still consider to be their favourite ever Newcastle goal. An audacious 25 yard chip over the head of the best goal keeper in the world by a man who now runs a fruit and veg delivery business somewhere in Belgium. "Looking For Number 5" is the story of two childhood friends and their quest to track down and meet the man responsible for that, the most spine tingling of moments. The story will follow us from Newcastle to Belgium and back and will hopefully give us the chance to recreate a moment that is forever etched in the minds of Newcastle United fans. Looking For Number 5 will be a nostalgic, funny and heartwarming story which ultimately goes to prove that football fans never truly grow up.

Risks and challenges

We might not find Philippe. We might find him and he won't want to be involved. If either of these situations occur, we can draw on some industry and media contacts to help us out to achieve our goal. If we ultimately fail in finding Philippe, we will still have an interesting, funny and heartwarming story that we would like to tell.
