    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 […]

    Rafa Benitez: Aren’t West Ham Being A Bit Arrogant Here?

    Newcastle United entertained West Ham at St James’ Park yesterday in front of the usual 50,000 plus faithful. The Premier League’s bottom club came to town being backed by the London-based “national” media to come away with all three points. The Sky pundits on Jeff Stelling’s “Gillette Soccer Saturday” in particular (why do they hate us?) wrote us off before this match – led by the usual anti-Newcastle garbage that spews constantly from the mouth of Paul Merson. Why is it that West Ham, bottom […]

     
  • Newcastle United 1 Fulham 0 – Signs Of Life At The Toon!

    Newcastle United 1 Fulham 0 – Signs Of Life At The Toon!

    This game was decided by a brilliant Ben Arfa goal with only a few minutes left on the clock. But the real winners were the fans, who saw a much improved Newcastle United put Fulham on the rack in the second half, and with a bit more fortune, the score could have been more. I have to admit, taking up my customary seat in the East Stand, I wasn’t expecting too much. Or to be more accurate, after the results against Manchester City and West […]

     
  • United Win At Morecambe – Just!

    United Win At Morecambe – Just!

    I don’t like these games against so-called “lesser sides”. The premier league giants against the lower league minnows – as the media like to portray it. It never works out that way does it? And it didn’t here either! As usual, Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew took the opportunity to rest some of our “stars” and chuck some kids and reserves in. So Good got his first start in a United team and the likes of Gosling, Dummett, Bigiramana and Vuckic got a run out. […]

     
  • West Ham Reflections

    West Ham Reflections

    As I took my seat in the East Stand at St James’ Park for the first home fixture of the season, everything seemed normal. That of course is if anything can be classed as “normal” these days at “The Cathedral On The Hill”. The same beer, same pies, same friendly match steward that I chat to for a while before each game, comparing views. All the lads and lasses, all with smiling faces, bedecked in their black and white shirts. But as we know, behind […]
