  • “A Hollow And Empty Football Club” Alan Shearer’s Verdict On United

    “A Hollow And Empty Football Club” Alan Shearer’s Verdict On United

    Well, United’s game against Man U yesterday came and went. The result was pretty much what most United fans had feared, but the 4-1 scoreline flattered Man U, mainly down to the untypical mistakes of our 3rd choice goalie Freddie Woodman. Our overall performance – in the first half in particular – was probably better than we expected. The midfield worked well as a unit with Almiron tirelessly covering every blade of grass and Longstaff getting back to his best showing why he has to […]

    Newcastle United v West Ham United Reaction

    Well, yesterday saw United play West Ham in our first game of the 21/22 season. The return of the crowds to football which somehow is allowed under the Eton Mess’s strange and illogical “road map” meant that United fans could once again fill St James’ Park to watch the Toon. And a crowd of 50,673 duly turned up to witness the unfolding events. As usual, opinions vary amongst our fans about how this season will go and where we will finish up in the EPL […]

     
  • Are Newcastle United Safe Yet? No We Are Not!

    Are Newcastle United Safe Yet? No We Are Not!

    Are we safe yet? That’s the question most United fans are concerned about. Have we done enough to stay in the Premier League so that we can spend another dreary, wasted season under the clueless Ashley and Bruce? Well, before the Arsenal result yesterday, I reckon most of us were quite confident. We’d had a mini-run of better results and had hauled ourselves 9 points clear of 3rd bottom Fulham. And this belief was reinforced when, as expected, Fulham lost to Chelsea. That mini-run of […]

  • Newcastle United Takeover:  Reasons To Be Fed Up

    Newcastle United Takeover: Reasons To Be Fed Up

    The Newcastle United takeover was submitted to the Premier League on 9th April – so as I sit here tapping these words into the keyboard, they have had a staggering 95 days to make a decision under their owners and directors test. 95 days to make what should be a simple decision based upon their own limited parameters – are the buyers financially sound and do any of the proposed directors have criminal records etc which would debar them from owning a Premier League club. […]

    Newcastle United Season Ticket Issues!

    This article is written on the assumption that the proposed takeover of Newcastle United goes ahead sometime in the coming weeks. Leaving aside the whole takeover business for a while, lets talk about season tickets for St James’ Park. There are a number of practical issues which will need to be resolved both in the world of football generally, and at Newcastle United in particular. These issues affect both the club and its long-suffering fans. For example, much has been written about whether the 2019/2020 […]

    As Annual Newcastle United Takeover Talk Dies Down (Again) – Had Enough Yet?

    As we’ve written many times before on this independent fan-powered website, we tend to yawn when the alleged annual rumour arrives about a potential takeover of Newcastle United by the latest wealthy owners. The timing of such rumours always seems to coincide with the opening of a transfer window. fancy that! Like Wimbledon or The Open you can almost stick a reminder in your new diary each Christmas! A cynic might suggest that the rumours are a ploy, a device to distract attention from the […]
