    Are Newcastle United Fans Really “Fuming”?

    Are Newcastle United fans fuming? fuming adjective feeling, showing, or expressing great anger. Are you fuming? This is an interesting question as it seems from quite a few headlines about Newcastle United lately that there’s a lot of it about amongst our fans!! Anyone who has been scanning article listings in news platforms such as “Newsnow” in the last month or two will have noticed a marked increase in the headlines which include the words fume or fuming – as in “Newcastle fans fume over…..” […]

     
  • Newcastle United Fans – Why Fall For These Takeover (Fakeover) Myths?

    Newcastle United Fans – Why Fall For These Takeover (Fakeover) Myths?

    We give fakeover talks the time of day, when we should just laugh them off. We complain about Ashley, sing about Ashley and jeer Mike Ashley, yet we continue to fund him. We want a new owner, a new manager and a new direction for the club, yet we turn up and fill home and away sections to show unrivalled levels of support. This has been going on for so long now that each and every fan has to own up and face their own […]

     
  • Excellent Newcastle United Defence Enough To See Off Chelsea

    Excellent Newcastle United Defence Enough To See Off Chelsea

    Like many other Newcastle United fans, I woke up this morning with a sore head, a croaky voice and a big smile on my face! Beating Chelsea 1-0 at the cathedral on the hill yesterday was an excellent result, ranking alongside our earlier wins against Tottenham and Manchester United, and the draw we earned with Manchester City. The return of Jamaal Lascelles to the centre of defence was huge. The mainstay of Rafa’s back five, he adds a commanding presence as well as the leadership […]

     
  • “Clueless On Tyneside” – Reaction To Newcastle United v Wolverhampton Wanderers

    “Clueless On Tyneside” – Reaction To Newcastle United v Wolverhampton Wanderers

    Newcastle United 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1 Another inept tactical display where you didn’t know what the team was trying to do, other than get the ball to Allan Saint-Maximin and hope that he can somehow trick his way into the box and get a shot off. I watched the game with my Dad, and I have read half time reports and listened to the manager, but we both thought that the first half was just a case of Wolves not turning up, rather than us […]

     
  • Prediction: Newcastle United Crowds Will Fall Even Further

    Prediction: Newcastle United Crowds Will Fall Even Further

    Following on from John Joseph’s article yesterday I’d like to add some views on the falling crowd situation at St James’ Park. Its the usual cycle: * Ashley stays for the money * A section of our fans believe staying away will help force a sale * A section of our fans don’t believe staying away will change anything The only consistent factors here are Ashley still owning the club and the same fans turning up to watch the same rubbish every week. The appointment […]

     
  • Newcastle United v Watford – Final Thoughts

    Newcastle United v Watford – Final Thoughts

    After the Watford match, we published some Fan reaction/opinions in our article “NUFC Fans Reaction To The Watford Result”. Below, I’ve added some final thoughts from yours truly! I thought we were abysmal in the first half and then much better in the second. First half was just the usual hopeless long balls forward, no pattern of play, no one moving off the ball. Then in the second half we started to get Longstaff on the ball, we started to get the ball out to […]
