    Tottenham’s Kane Escapes Red Card, Not Clear Why

    Newcastle United lost to Tottenham Hotspur yesterday at St James’ Park. United matched the visitors quite comfortably in the first half when they still had 11 men. But the game changed due to a sending off that happened – and a sending off that should have happened but didn’t. Jonjo Shelvey was the United culprit. Trying to retrieve the ball to take a free kick, the ball was petulantly pushed away by Deli Alli. In return, Shelvey stood on Ali’s foot as he walked across […]

    Tottenham Hotspur: What A Coincidence!

    Newcastle United return to the English Premier League (EPL) tomorrow when we entertain Tottenham Hotspur at the Cathedral on the Hill – kick off at 13.30. After taking time out for our successful one-season tour of the Championship, including returning with the title of course, we are back where we belong and ready to mix it with the best. And what a co-incidence! United fans will remember that Tottenham were the last team we played in the EPL before going on our much-publicised tour. At […]

    Opportunity Knocks For Newcastle United Thanks To The Fixture List

    Fate, or more particularly the next two scheduled fixtures, present Newcastle United with an opportunity to increase the vital gap between us and Huddersfield Town, the team in 3rd place in the Championship. Our next two games are both at home, and on paper both look winnable – Aston Villa (Monday 20th February) & Bristol City (Saturday 25th February). Neither of these teams are pulling up any trees this season and are there for the taking. I know, I know – we’ve had some dodgy […]

     
  • Rafa Benitez To West Ham? What A Joke!

    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 […]
