  • 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 […]

    Leeds United v Newcastle United: Looking Forward To This One!

    Two massive clubs collide in a mouth-watering fixture tomorrow at Elland Road. Leeds United host Newcastle United in a top of the table clash in the English Championship. Newcastle of course sit proudly at the top of the division, and Leeds are currently in a play-off place. The match is a rare sell-out for Leeds who’s official attendance capacity is quoted as 39,460 – although there was a fella on BBC Football Focus saying they’ve sold 44,000 tickets – work that one out! Only 2,764 […]

Sir Bobby launched his charity in 2008 and it has gone on to raise over £10 million to find more effective ways to detect and […]

    Trust Rafa – He Knows What He’s Doing!

    We are currently just under one third of the way through the current Championship Season and Newcastle United sit proudly at the top of the league table, three points clear of our two nearest challengers and with a far superior goal difference. After losing the first two games of the season, things settled down and since then we have won 10 drawn 1 and lost only one of the subsequent 12 games. It’s clear that United have the strongest squad in this division with the […]

     
  • Amazing Comeback As The Rafa Roller Coaster Continues Against Norwich

    Amazing Comeback As The Rafa Roller Coaster Continues Against Norwich

    Anyone who left last night’s game early will be kicking themselves this morning! Before this season started, most people accepted that the Championship was going to be a hard league to play in. We all worried then, and still do now, about how difficult it will be to gain promotion from a very tough league – especially at the first attempt. What we know for certain however is that this season is going to be a serious roller-coaster ride, with many ups and downs. And […]
