    A Day In The Life Of A Newcastle United Fan/Protester

    3.00am Alarm goes off I think to myself should I just turn over and have an extra half hour? No, I get up and put the Coffee on as my taxi is booked for 4.20am to take me to St James Park for the bus pick up at 5am. Anyway after a gruelling coach journey of 6hrs 15mins we arrived in London, Parliament Square and met up with others who had travelled down independently. Then at 1.00pm, we unfurled all the flags and banners with […]

     
  • Newcastle United v Aston Villa Preview

    Newcastle United v Aston Villa Preview

    “Callum is four weeks in, so we’re seeing him on the grass and he’s progressing, That goes for Allan and Almiron as well.” Not my words, but the words of Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce trying to give an update on the injuries to his key attacking players. It isn’t clear what Callum is actually “in” and the least said about him (or Allan or Almiron) being “on the grass” the better! If anyone knows what Mr Bruce was actually trying to say – answers […]

    Run A Match In March For Sir Bobby Robson’s Charity

    Today (18th February) is Sir Bobby Robson’s birthday. He would have been 88 and, as Lady Elsie puts it, “incredibly proud” at everything his cancer charity has gone on to achieve. Thanks to fantastic, ongoing support from its fundraisers, the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation funds a range of cutting-edge cancer treatment and innovative cancer support services that directly benefit patients from across the North East and Cumbria. Now the Foundation has announced a new fundraising activity, Sir Bobby’s Football Run, to help support the work […]

     
  • 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 […]

     
  • The Handball Debate Rages After Newcastle United Draw At Tottenham

    The Handball Debate Rages After Newcastle United Draw At Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur 1 Newcastle United 1 Well, an undeserved draw after another very poor display. To be honest, I am less annoyed by VAR itself than I am by the braying mob of dullards who constantly whine about it. I have to say something about the constant whinging of the pundit classes about these penalty awards. First of all I’d like to know which moron ever introduced the idea of ‘intent’ into the laws of a game like football? Greater minds than any that has […]
