    Newcastle United Takeover: Reasons To Be Fed Up

    The Newcastle United takeover was submitted to the Premier League on 9th April – so as I sit here tapping these words into the keyboard, they have had a staggering 95 days to make a decision under their owners and directors test. 95 days to make what should be a simple decision based upon their own limited parameters – are the buyers financially sound and do any of the proposed directors have criminal records etc which would debar them from owning a Premier League club.

    Newcastle United v Manchester City Debacle: The Final Word!

    I’m sure the pain of watching that embarrassing first half “performance” against Manchester City in the FA Cup will stay with us for some time. Trying to play the Rafa way without Rafa was suicidal, and so it proved. Below are the thoughts of our UTD111 Forum member “Ghostfacekillah” who speaks his mind and doesn’t hold back! It’s the final word before we move on to Bournemouth! The first half was entirely Bruce’s fault, the way he set the players up, they were on a […]

    Does A Sell-Out Crowd Actually Help Newcastle Players?

    Three defeats on the trot and the inquisitions, and blame-game debates have started to ramp up amongst disgruntled Newcastle United fans. All of the usual grumbles never really went away – a potent mix of the faults of the owner, the manager and the playing staff, to name but three key areas! Most of us have never been particularly content with the owner, who is seen by many as using the club as an advertising clothes horse for his sports clothing business, rather than having […]

    Reaction: Newcastle United Free Season Tickets

    Yesterday, Newcastle United made around 10,000 “half” extra season tickets available to existing season ticket holders on a first come, first served basis. Cue an online scramble by thousands of fans looking to take advantage of this early christmas present. The tickets were quickly snapped up and enable the new holders to watch every home game remaining this season, from Everton on 28th December for nothing. The decision to offer the free tickets seems to have come following a relatively poor (for United, anyway) crowd […]

  • “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 […]
