  • Alan Pardew On Cisse Capture

    The silver fox speaks – and we listen…..These comments were made to the official NUFC Website: “To join him with players like Cabaye, Demba [Ba] and Ben Arfa – it really does look exciting now,” Pardew told the club’s official website. “He was the second-top goal scorer in the Bundesliga last year and he’s had a good return already this year, so he’s in good form. “He’s a player who plays off the shoulder and wants to go in behind, but he’s got a little […]

    Cisse Signs!

      “I would like to thank everybody for their welcome, and for inviting me to sign for the Club,” “It is an honour to play for such a big club and I am looking forward to it. “First of all, I would like to give good value for money for the people who brought me here. “I want to pay back the confidence the Club have shown in me, and give the supporters something to be proud of.” “I am a goalscorer, and that is […]

     
  • Man Arrested After Cisse Twitter Remark

    A MAN has been arrested after reports were made of racist abuse directed at Newcastle United on a social network site.

    Virgin And Newcastle United – Can A Brand Be Lucky?

    “Twenty years ago, we sponsored Crystal Palace and they got to the FA Cup final. Then last week, we sponsored Newcastle and they beat Manchester United 3-love.” “So we’re a lucky brand, and may the luck continue throughout the rest of the season.” The words of Sir Richard Branson, (3-love?? – clearly a tennis fan!) the 4th richest person in the UK and 254th richest in the world. Not bad for a bloke who started with a mail order record business in 1970 and who […]

     
  • Newcastle United 1 QPR 0

    United came to this game on the back of 2 excellent straight wins against Man Utd 3-0 (got that one in early today!) and Blackburn 2-1 in the FA Cup. In contrast, Queens Park Rangers had taken only one point from their last 6 games. Everything pointed to a fairly routine, comfortable home win. However this was the first league game without Demba Ba and Cheick Tiote, and the other potentially influencing factor was the appointment of Mark Hughes, who took charge of QPR for […]

  • “Droopy” Redknapp At It Again

    “Droopy” Redknapp At It Again

    Once again, Media darling and Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has apparently been publicly tapping up another club’s player. This time the object of his unwanted interest is Newcastle United’s star striker Demba Ba. In his weekly press conference, the twitchy one is quoted as saying: “Demba Ba’s done great hasn’t he, everybody’s looking at him suddenly,” said Redknapp. “Anybody could have had him a year ago. Full credit to Alan Pardew, he took him. “He’s done a fantastic job, what a strike rate he’s got. […]

     
  • There’s Only One United

    There’s only one United. Well if you watch TV, listen to the radio or read the newspapers in the United Kingdom, you could be forgiven for thinking so! There is a tendency for “The National Media” to refer to Manchester United as “United”. I believe this has it’s roots in Manchester itself where it was easier for the local folks there to talk about “City” and “United” when discussing their local teams. This is fine and I have no problem with it. However, when the […]
