  • Why Are Manchester United Judged Differently To Newcastle United?

    Why Are Manchester United Judged Differently To Newcastle United?

    So this debacle at Man Utd, the uproar around a team that looks devoid of direction, a team looking like they haven’t been coached. Ex-professionals like Graham Souness saying that at the very least Ole Solskjær needs to bring in some new coaches as whatever they are doing isn’t working. Jamie Carragher saying Ole isn’t the man for the job. This is a team that would have gone 4th with a win against Liverpool. Meanwhile, there’s Newcastle United – 7 wins in 39 games in […]

     
  • This Newcastle United Mess Requires Urgent Action

    This Newcastle United Mess Requires Urgent Action

    Author: Ghostfacekillah For a long time it felt like the club was almost intentionally aiming to self-destruct. Ashley was hands-on, appointing the wrong people here, there and everywhere, wanting to run the club like he would one of his retail outlets. That was bad enough, and it took us down a division on two separate occasions. This current crisis though feels like something new. He apparently has no interest in the club, he desperately wants to sell it, he has exhausted all managerial options with […]

     
  • United 0 Chelsea 2: Shot-Shy Newcastle Clueless Again

    United 0 Chelsea 2: Shot-Shy Newcastle Clueless Again

    I don’t know if any of you stayed with BT Sport to watch the after match analysis? I usually don’t, even if we win I have no interest. But I did today, as Jake Humphrey is always flying the flag for us as fans. I am paraphrasing, and maybe changing the odd word, but the gist of it was that when you stand inside the ground and watch the rubbish we served up today, you can totally understand why the fans are kicking off like […]

     
  • Newcastle United 1 Manchester United 4 – Fan Rant!

    Newcastle United 1 Manchester United 4 – Fan Rant!

    Newcastle United 1 Manchester United 4 This game was like every single other game under Bruce. No shape, no strategy, no going after the opposition’s main weakness. Just 11 blobs thrown out on the pitch, no doubt with the rhetoric of “let’s get up and at em boys!”. Thank you so much Steve Bruce, for systematically taking apart everything that Rafa Benitez built. We have the best squad of players we have had for years, and we are also playing the worst football we have […]

     
  • Fan Reaction: Newcastle United Future Beyond Bleak, It’s Thoroughly Depressing.

    Fan Reaction: Newcastle United Future Beyond Bleak, It’s Thoroughly Depressing.

    So the takeover has been called off. I was a little less shocked than I would have been a month a go, but I was still surprised by this. I fully expected the time taken to have been used to iron out any issues. I don’t know what to make of it all. Amanda Staveley has said the blame lies with other clubs attempting to block the deal, but the statement from the PIF Group was a strange one. To me, it seems like a […]

     
  • Newcastle United v Manchester City Debacle: The Final Word!

    Newcastle United v Manchester City Debacle: The Final Word!

    I’m sure the pain of watching that embarrassing first half “performance” against Manchester City in the FA Cup will stay with us for some time. Trying to play the Rafa way without Rafa was suicidal, and so it proved. Below are the thoughts of our UTD111 Forum member “Ghostfacekillah” who speaks his mind and doesn’t hold back! It’s the final word before we move on to Bournemouth! The first half was entirely Bruce’s fault, the way he set the players up, they were on a […]

     
  • Have Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United Finally Lost The Rafa Discipline?

    Have Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United Finally Lost The Rafa Discipline?

    Our previous article on “Bruce v Rafa” by feature writer John Joseph can be viewed HERE Anyone who compares Bruce to Rafa Benitez knows nothing about Newcastle United, I’d argue nothing about football. Win, lose or draw under Benitez, we had a game plan, and once he got a few players in of his own, and had chance to coach the players, we were a team who could compete with anyone on their day. Craig Hope summed it up perfectly the other week on the […]
