    Brighton, Huddersfield And Reading Games Over And We’re Still Standing!

    Fate and the Football League fixture computer threw up a remarkable series of matches for Newcastle United in the last eight days. Our last three games, all away from home, pitched us against the teams who are very much our direct competition for automatic...

    Opportunity Knocks For Newcastle United Thanks To The Fixture List

    Fate, or more particularly the next two scheduled fixtures, present Newcastle United with an opportunity to increase the vital gap between us and Huddersfield Town, the team in 3rd place in the Championship. Our next two games are both at home, and on...

    Were The Fans “Cheated” At Oxford?

    I went to Oxford on Saturday and wouldn’t be looking for a refund. I never have and never will. Probably cost me and the missus best part of £150 all in but there you go. Did I feel short changed? Yes I did. Not just in the team selection, but...

    What’s Said On The Pitch Should Stay On The Pitch

    Jonjo Shelvey banned for 5 matches and fined £100,000. Should keep the FA and the rest of the Championship happy now then. A kick in the proverbials for us is what everyone has been wanting. The FA can now afford to pay their “poppy fine”...

    Brighton, Huddersfield And Reading Games Over And We’re Still Standing!

    Fate and the Football League fixture computer threw up a remarkable series of matches for Newcastle United in the last eight days. Our last three games, all away from home, pitched us against the teams who are very much our direct competition for automatic promotion this season. The press and media, bless them, got very excited about this run of games, and speculation was rife that we might lose all three. Indeed, there were certain parts of the media (are you reading this Sky match […]

    Opportunity Knocks For Newcastle United Thanks To The Fixture List

    Fate, or more particularly the next two scheduled fixtures, present Newcastle United with an opportunity to increase the vital gap between us and Huddersfield Town, the team in 3rd place in the Championship. Our next two games are both at home, and on paper both look winnable – Aston Villa (Monday 20th February) & Bristol City (Saturday 25th February). Neither of these teams are pulling up any trees this season and are there for the taking. I know, I know – we’ve had some dodgy […]

    Were The Fans “Cheated” At Oxford?

    I went to Oxford on Saturday and wouldn’t be looking for a refund. I never have and never will. Probably cost me and the missus best part of £150 all in but there you go. Did I feel short changed? Yes I did. Not just in the team selection, but also in the manner some of our players went about it. We had wide players who couldn’t cross a ball, either from open play or dead balls. Shocking lack of ability. Even if they had […]

    Jonjo Shelvey banned for 5 matches and fined £100,000. Should keep the FA and the rest of the Championship happy now then. A kick in the proverbials for us is what everyone has been wanting. The FA can now afford to pay their “poppy fine” so a win win for all concerned. Also an opportunity for the do gooders amongst our fans to have a go at Shelvey as well. The ones who were visibly gutted when his red card was overturned after slagging him […]

     
  • Nottingham Forest Referee 2 Newcastle United 1

    Nottingham Forest Referee 2 Newcastle United 1

    I was lost for words last night. Nottingham Forest’s pet referee Stephen Martin had clearly decided to dispense with any pretence of neutrality and had decided to take whatever action was necessary to enure Newcastle United were beaten. A penalty disallowed, a perfectly good goal disallowed, two ridiculous red card dismissals totally unwarranted, took any attempt at balance or pleas of genuine refereeing mistakes way beyond what might be considered excusable. This bloke made Trelford Mills look like a saint. (Younger fans please google). I […]
