    A Point At West Bromwich Albion – Normally A Good Result, But..

    West Bromwich Albion 1 Newcastle United 1 Newcastle United gained a valuable point at the Hawthorns, but still find ourselves embroiled in the relegation dogfight at the foot of the Premier League thanks to wins for Stoke, Sunderland and Chris Hughton’s Norwich City. There is now little doubt that, barring a miracle, Reading and Queens Park Rangers are heading for the trapdoor to the Championship, and the only question remaining is who will be the third team to join them? United are now three points […]

     
  • “Dance Like Your Dad!” Sunderland Have Actually Won A Derby!

    “Dance Like Your Dad!” Sunderland Have Actually Won A Derby!

    It doesn’t happen very often, but it has to happen every now and then I suppose. In “David and Goliath” clashes, the relative minnows sometimes come out on top – even if it is with the help of the match officials! The correct score in this match should have been Newcastle United 1 Sunderland 2 – when you take into account the fact that United scored a perfectly good goal and Sunderland’s third “goal” was clearly offside. Both of these events were somehow missed by […]

     
  • A Grand Day Out – Singing In The Posh Seats!

    A Grand Day Out – Singing In The Posh Seats!

    Every so often something comes your way that you simply just cannot miss. In a football sense, I am lucky enough to get those moments a couple of times each season when I am invited by a great friend to join her watching our beloved Newcastle United in the Moncur Suite at St James’ Park. It’s a day when I forgo the bus queue, the crush for a pint when even sticking my boobs out fails to get me served and the molten lava half-time […]

     
  • Wigan Chairman Tries To Defend The Indefensible

    Wigan Chairman Tries To Defend The Indefensible

    I did try to sit down and write a match report today on the game at Wigan, honestly I really did. However the match itself has paled into insignificance in comparison with that tackle by a certain Callum McManaman on United’s french full-back Massadio Haidara. The other reason I have delayed writing anything further about yesterday’s events is that I was hoping we would have had some news from the club by now on Haidara’s condition – although I think we are all bracing ourselves […]

     
  • Captain Cabaye’s Crew Conquer Stoke

    Captain Cabaye’s Crew Conquer Stoke

    Newcastle United 2 Stoke City 1 In our pre-match report we described this game as “an important game with three valuable points at stake. Points which, if we can manage to get them, would be a significant contribution to ensuring that we continue our upwardly mobile momentum in the second half of the season.” Well, job done on that score, we got the three points and are starting to see some clear water between ourselves and the teams struggling at the bottom of the English […]

     
  • Honours Even In Moscow As United Boss Anzhi

    Honours Even In Moscow As United Boss Anzhi

    Newcastle United saw out a 0-0 draw in Moscow last night with a performance which demonstrated the depth of the squad we now possess. Without players such as Krul, Coloccini, Gouffran, Debuchy, Santon, Gutierrez and Cisse, and with the likes of Taylor and Tiote on the bench, the team put in an energetic performance, pressing and defending well all over the pitch. Alan Pardew and his coaches are often sniped at on some other NUFC Blogs for being tactically naive in some way, but they […]

     
  • Unlucky Defeat At Swansea Is Hopefully Just A Blip

    Unlucky Defeat At Swansea Is Hopefully Just A Blip

    Yesterday’s unlucky defeat at the hands of Swansea halted what had started to be a promising run for Newcastle United. Going into the game, we were starting to put together a mini-revival with three wins in four games, including an excellent and well-deserved victory over current European champions Chelsea. Unfortunately our loss at the Liberty Stadium sees us still loitering at the wrong end of the Premier League table – too close for comfort. Luckily, Reading, Southampton, Norwich and Wigan all lost or our customary […]
