    Win Against Stoke City Puts United 4th In The Premiership

    Last season, United’s one-off tour of the Championship got off to a poor start when we lost the first two games at Fulham and at home to Huddersfield Town. We went on to win the Championship title. This season, on our glorious return to the Premiership we also lost the first two games! To Spurs and, funnily enough, to Huddersfield again. And no – I don’t think we’ll win the title this time around! However it has been very encouraging that since those first two […]

    Huddersfield, West Ham, Swansea: Too Early?

    When the fixtures for the Premier League first came out, many pundits were saying that once we got the opening game against Tottenham out of the way, we were facing a series of winnable games against what the media have begun to label “lesser teams” ie clubs that don’t usually feature in the top six or seven. After our highly successful one-season tour of the Championship, this run of fixtures was touted as a relatively gentle re-introduction to the Premier League for United, for which […]

    United Are Back! The Toon On The Telly

    Viewing figures of live Premier League matches last season were down by about 14% according to the statistics. And much of this was attributed to a certain massive club being missing – as the folks at Newcastle United went off on our one-season tour of the Championship. But now we’re back! And Sky television seem very pleased to see us back. So pleased that they’ve decided to show five of our first seven games live, beginning with our annual ritual stuffing of Tottenham Hotspur, which […]

    Yet Another Shocking Saga For United Fans As Club Raided

    Those of us who have been around Newcastle United for any length of time know that with this club nothing is ever easy. Nothing is ever straightforward. It has always been thus. So why did we expect anything different this time? The elation and general partying in the city and in NUFC supporters clubs across the world since gaining promotion on Monday night ceased abruptly this morning when news began to filter through that the club had been raided. Officials from HM Revenue & Customs […]

    Hike4Hopey Sets Off From Ipswich

    While the result on the pitch will only have pleased one set of supporters, yesterday’s Sir Bobby Robson Day at Portman Road was something fans of Ipswich Town and Newcastle United could all celebrate. As well as remembering a manager who is closely linked with both clubs, the day raised money for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation. Guests of honour on the pitch included Sir Bobby’s family and both teams warmed up wearing Sir Bobby Robson Foundation t-shirts. And fundraising for the charity continues today […]

  • 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 […]
