    Same Old Rubbish As Krul Saves United From Total Embarrassment

    So the start of the season finally arrived last night. A time to turn up and support your team after 3 months of waiting. A time to see your new signings in the flesh for the first time. An expectation of a great season ahead. Well, that’s if your a Man City fan. Something in the region of £90 million spent on new players, 2 of them were in the starting 11. A new manager at the helm and they were all anticipating great things. […]

     
  • Manchester City v Newcastle United – “City v United” Match Preview

    Manchester City v Newcastle United – “City v United” Match Preview

    United enter the Etihad Stadium this evening to take on moneybags Manchester City in our opening fixture of the 2013/2014 English Premier League Season. These days, of course, the media describe Manchester City as a “bigger club” than us – whatever that means. All I know is they get smaller crowds than us, and every time they’re on the telly, there are empty seats on view! Anyway, as we know the game is all about money these days and the owners of “Citeh” have it […]

     
  • Cisse Wears Wonga As United Win Again

    Cisse Wears Wonga As United Win Again

    Newcastle United cruised to a 2-0 win at St Mirren last night with a good all-round performance. This was United’s third pre-season win to add to the victories at Motherwell and Blackpool. However, the big news from this game was the sight of Cisse wearing a shirt bearing the Wonga logo, bringing to an end the issue which has been joyfully exploited by the southern media during the summer as another yet opportunity to have a go at Newcastle United. Goals from Papiss Demba Cisse […]

     
  • Pacos De Ferreira 1 Newcastle United 1 – Improved  Performance From United

    Pacos De Ferreira 1 Newcastle United 1 – Improved Performance From United

    Pacos De Ferreira v Newcastle United Venue: Estadio de Mata Real, Portugal Date: Tuesday 23rd July 2013 Referee: Jorge Sousa United completed the final match of their pre-season games in Portugal with a 1-1 draw with Pacos De Ferreira. I was going to call it a pre-season friendly but anyone who saw the first half might agree it didn’t look very friendly for periods of the game. In fact United skipper Fabricio Coloccini, making his first appearance of the season, was sent off along with […]

    Rio Ave 3 Newcastle United 1- Pre-Season Workout Ends In Defeat

    Rio Ave v Newcastle United Venue: Estadio Dos Arcos, Portugal Kick-Off: 8pm Date: Saturday 20th July 2013 Referee: Pedros Campos Newcastle United played the second game of their pre-season schedule when they took on Rio Ave last night in the Estadio Dos Arcos in Vila Do Conde in the north of Portugal. OK, this was only a pre-season game involving the usual mixture of first teamers, reserves and kids, and we shouldn’t take too much notice of the actual score. That’s what I always tell […]

     
  • Motherwell 2 Newcastle United 4

    Motherwell 2 Newcastle United 4

    Motherwell v Newcastle United 16th July 2013 Fir Park, Motherwell United played their first pre-season friendly at Motherwell in front of a crowd of 4,475 of which just over 1,000 were estimated to be United fans. The depressing statistic for geordie fans was that there were no new signings on view – even though everyone associated with the club knows that we need goalscoring strikers and a quality centre half who can dominate in the air. The other slightly negative fact about this match was […]

    Worrying Times As Useless United Are Hit For Six

    Around about this time after a Newcastle United game, the righteous black and whites on this website usually begin to write our match report. We don’t always publish on the same day, sometimes we draft the first version then sleep on it – finalising things the following day. Today isn’t like that. Today is different. We played against a Liverpool side today who are just above mid-table. Not Manchester United, not Manchester City – Liverpool. But the worrying thing for any United fan watching this […]
