    Rafa Benitez To West Ham? What A Joke!

    “we bought your ground for you” “we bought your ground for you!” Some London-based journos have been writing about the plight of poor little West Ham, languishing at the wrong end of the Premier League and apparently about to sack their latest “messiah” Slaven Bilic. The answer of the West Ham heirarchy, who appear to be slightly out of touch with reality, is apparently to seek to replace Bilic with United manager Rafa Benitez. Have to admit this story coming out of London has to […]

    Leeds United v Newcastle United: Looking Forward To This One!

    Two massive clubs collide in a mouth-watering fixture tomorrow at Elland Road. Leeds United host Newcastle United in a top of the table clash in the English Championship. Newcastle of course sit proudly at the top of the division, and Leeds are currently in a play-off place. The match is a rare sell-out for Leeds who’s official attendance capacity is quoted as 39,460 – although there was a fella on BBC Football Focus saying they’ve sold 44,000 tickets – work that one out! Only 2,764 […]

    Rafa Benitez visits Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Centre

    Patients and staff at the Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Trials Research Centre in Newcastle welcomed a very special football visitor this week. Rafa Benitez was invited to the centre, at the Freeman Hospital’s Northern Centre for Cancer Care, by Lady Elsie Robson to find out more about the work of another Newcastle United manager – the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation. Sir Bobby launched his charity in 2008 and it has gone on to raise over £10 million to find more effective ways to detect and […]

    Is St James’ Park Big Enough?

    A couple of lads were debating on Twitter last night as to whether the current upturn in attitude and feelgood factor will see Ashley consider extending the capacity at St James’ Park. I know, we are a winning club in the Championship who’ve been on a high for 6 months. But it was actually a good point they made. Personally I don’t see it happening as the return on such an investment takes time and Ashley is all about the quick buck. However, if ever […]

    Trust Rafa – He Knows What He’s Doing!

    We are currently just under one third of the way through the current Championship Season and Newcastle United sit proudly at the top of the league table, three points clear of our two nearest challengers and with a far superior goal difference. After losing the first two games of the season, things settled down and since then we have won 10 drawn 1 and lost only one of the subsequent 12 games. It’s clear that United have the strongest squad in this division with the […]

    Amazing Comeback As The Rafa Roller Coaster Continues Against Norwich

    Anyone who left last night’s game early will be kicking themselves this morning! Before this season started, most people accepted that the Championship was going to be a hard league to play in. We all worried then, and still do now, about how difficult it will be to gain promotion from a very tough league – especially at the first attempt. What we know for certain however is that this season is going to be a serious roller-coaster ride, with many ups and downs. And […]
