  • Did Rafa Get It Wrong Against Arsenal?

    Did Rafa Get It Wrong Against Arsenal?

    Poor team selection Poor substitutions Team devoid of ideas… …Fans sing about Ashley Benitez has the easiest ticket in English football. He wins a game, no other manager could do that with this squad of players. He loses a game with a rubbish team setup and a complete inability to make good substitutions (this dates back to his time at Liverpool) and it’s Ashley’s fault. I said it the other week but it stinks at the moment, it smacks of something far greater going on […]

     
  • McClaren Post-Match Interview: Listen Here

    McClaren Post-Match Interview: Listen Here

    It goes without saying that Newcastle United manager Steve McClaren was disappointed with the result against Arsenal today, and some of the other events which went on. McClaren felt that the straight red card for Mitrovic by referee Andre Marriner was harsh. And as I said in our earlier post-match article, I totally agree. Following that doubtful red card in the 16th minute, ten-man United had to put in a backs to the wall for the bulk of the game, in an effort to try […]

    Arsenal Title Contenders? You’re Having A Laugh!

    A strange game at the cathedral on the Hill today saw Newcastle United lose at home to Arsenal. The game was ruined as a spectacle when under-fire referee Andre Marriner harshly sent off United striker Mitrovic for an alleged stamping offence which should have been a yellow at most. United intend to appeal against the red card. From that point onwards ten-man United had to put in a backs to the wall effort to try to salvage anything from the game. Quick Draw McGraw Marriner […]

     
  • United v Arsenal: What Team Will Steve McClaren Put Out?

    United v Arsenal: What Team Will Steve McClaren Put Out?

    Newcastle United host Arsenal tomorrow in an early kick-off at 12.45pm which will be televised live on BT Sport 1. There has been much debate on The UTD111 Forum about what players will feature in Steve McClaren’s starting 11. It’s difficult to say with any certainty what the team will be as it’s too early for us to really know who McClaren sees as his best team. And maybe he’s still finding that out for himself, too. After all, we’ve only played 3 EPL games. […]

     
  • Arsenal Think They Have An Injury Crisis? Well So Do United!

    Arsenal Think They Have An Injury Crisis? Well So Do United!

    Ahead of this weekend’s big match, news is coming out of the Arsenal camp that they have a bit of a mini injury and suspension crisis, particularly affecting central defence. Well, I’m really sorry to hear that (NOT!) – but at least it might even things up from a United perspective, as we have one or two problems of our own. Lets have a look at Arsenal first. Monsieur Wenger, the Arsenal manager, has confirmed that he will be without Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal, Mikel […]

     
  • United To Beat Arsenal & Tottenham To Loic Remy Signature?

    United To Beat Arsenal & Tottenham To Loic Remy Signature?

    Incredulous as the story may seem, and lets face it this one is incredulous, there is news today that Newcastle United may well be back in for Loic Remy! The Newcastle Evening Chronicle via Chronicle Live are running the story today that United are back in for Remy and hope to persuade him to return to St James’ Park. The main reason given is his lack of involvement in the World Cup, which may have “dented his ambitions of landing Champions League football”. He was […]

     
  • Debuchy To Arsenal – Jenkinson To United?

    Debuchy To Arsenal – Jenkinson To United?

    During the ongoing discussions for the transfer of Debuchy to Arsenal, there have been a lot of suggestions about players being offered to us in part ex for our man. Joel Campbell, the player who did ok for Costa Rica in one of their games was one of them. Played in the Greek league last season and scored 8 goals. Hardly startling is it. A player who we loaned out, Abeid, scored 10 from midfield in the same league. The other name constantly thrown in […]

     
  • United Star Signing For Arsenal?

    United Star Signing For Arsenal?

    If the stories are to be believed, Newcastle United’s star full back Mathieu Debuchy will be signing for London club Arsenal any day soon. The fee is rumoured to be £8M rising to £10M based on subsequent appearances. The french international is the type of player we used to sign and keep in the days when men of vision and ambition owned and ran United. Sadly, these days it’s different. Our current owner, as we know, has no football ambition, only financial targets. He buys […]

    Should United Sell Debuchy To Arsenal? [poll]

    There are a few rumours going around that London club Arsenal might be sniffing around our french right back Mathieu Debuchy. It’s apparently come as a bit of a surprise to the United heirarchy – the rumour coming out of the “cathedral on the hill” is that they consider it to be “a bit previous, guvnor!” That’s our attempt to mimick the comment which might have come from the mouth of our beloved and well respected cockney manager, by the way. “We was well surprised” […]
