He also uploads Premier League Previews and Reviews of the weekend's action, as well as commenting on current events within YouTube.
He became well-known after his first video, titled A True Geordie's view on Nile Ranger went viral. The video featured Geordie himself ranting about then Newcastle forward Nile Ranger after the striker came out and told the fans to not bother turning up if they're going to boo. He quickly gained a following due to his expletive and passionate, yet honest, opinions and therefore changed his channel name to True Geordie, uploading more regularly.
He now uploads twice a week and hosts a weekly podcast with friend and editor Laurence McKenna and often collaborates with McKenna and fellow YouTubers WillNE and Stephen Tries on the XO channel.
KSI vs Logan Paul
Geordie was the host and commentator for the KSI vs Joe Weller fight, and was also the host for the second Logan Paul vs KSI press conference. Ever since the press conference, Logan explained why he left the conference, claiming the "Moderator" (Geordie) was biased towards KSI and that he was a "Logan and Jake Paul hater", complaining that he let KSI continue for too long. Logan was referring to Geordie's reaction video to the Suicide Forest controversy ("LOGAN PAUL EXPLOITS A DEAD BODY") in which Geordie castigated Logan for his insensitivity towards the suicide victim and was even driven to tears when he spoke about his personal history with suicide.
Geordie responded to Logan, pointing out his silence and lack of rebuttal to KSI during the conference. Geordie also stated he felt indifferent towards the Pauls and that he did not, in fact, hate them. Despite this, Geordie was nearly removed from commentating the official KSI vs Logan Paul fight, which caused significant protest from the YouTube community; many creators including Boogie2988 and Calfreezy voiced their support for him. A petition was also launched which garnered over 15,000 signatures.
On July 30, 2018, after a phone call and having a podcast between them, Geordie confirmed he indeed forgave Logan for all of his acts and made peace over the debacle, thus officially reinstating him as the announcer for the KSI vs Logan Paul on August 25, 2018.
