    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 […]

     
  • Rafa Benitez To West Ham? What A Joke!

    Rafa Benitez To West Ham? What A Joke!

    “we bought your ground for you” “we bought your ground for you!” Some London-based journos have been writing about the plight of poor little West Ham, languishing at the wrong end of the Premier League and apparently about to sack their latest “messiah” Slaven Bilic. The answer of the West Ham heirarchy, who appear to be slightly out of touch with reality, is apparently to seek to replace Bilic with United manager Rafa Benitez. Have to admit this story coming out of London has to […]

    QPR Routed As Five Go Mad In London!

    With apologies to both Enid Blyton and “The Comic Strip Presents” for the headline! But what a night that was eh? Six goals shared by our own version of the Famous Five, who will now be written into Newcastle United folklore. History will record that Jonjo Shelvey (2), Ayoze Perez, Ciaran Clark, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Grant Hanley scored the goals. However, this was undoubtedly a full team effort with every single player in a black and white shirt putting in a performance that will have […]

    Transfer Windows Can Do Your Head In!

    Transfer Windows can do your head in! They should carry a Government health warning. Seriously. Well, it’s not so much the transfer windows – it’s the daily crapola – the stories about who might be moving where that are pushed by the printed, online and TV media. I used to reckon half of the stuff was made up. But after years of experience with this garbage, I now reckon most of it is! In some ways you can understand why it happens. People who are […]

     
  • Sissoko’s Dream Club – Number 3!

    Sissoko’s Dream Club – Number 3!

    Moussa Sissoko is basically starting to sound like a big bairn. Sitting in the corner with his pet lip on, thinking he’s now too good to play for Newcastle United and trying to talk some so-called “top club” to come in for him. Personally I’m sick of listening to his whingeing. And I’m also totally fed up with how many so-called “top clubs” are his “dream”. It’s all getting a bit tedious. In June it was Arsenal: “Everyone knows, I often said it when I […]
