    New Signing For Sir Bobby’s Foundation

    Professor Chris Day, Newcastle University’s new Vice-Chancellor and President, has agreed to join the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation’s Board of Trustees.

    What’s Said On The Pitch Should Stay On The Pitch

    Jonjo Shelvey banned for 5 matches and fined £100,000. Should keep the FA and the rest of the Championship happy now then. A kick in the proverbials for us is what everyone has been wanting. The FA can now afford to pay their “poppy fine” so a win win for all concerned. Also an opportunity for the do gooders amongst our fans to have a go at Shelvey as well. The ones who were visibly gutted when his red card was overturned after slagging him […]

     
  • Nottingham Forest Referee 2 Newcastle United 1

    Nottingham Forest Referee 2 Newcastle United 1

    I was lost for words last night. Nottingham Forest’s pet referee Stephen Martin had clearly decided to dispense with any pretence of neutrality and had decided to take whatever action was necessary to enure Newcastle United were beaten. A penalty disallowed, a perfectly good goal disallowed, two ridiculous red card dismissals totally unwarranted, took any attempt at balance or pleas of genuine refereeing mistakes way beyond what might be considered excusable. This bloke made Trelford Mills look like a saint. (Younger fans please google). I […]

    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

    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 […]
