    NUST: Newcastle Supporters United In A Common Cause

    I was privileged to attend the Newcastle United Supporters Trust Zoom meeting yesterday 7th August 2020 which set out to discuss: The Trust’s plans in the campaign for transparency from the Premier League on the Newcastle United takeover process and What the Trust and its members have learned from the process and what it means for the future of Newcastle United The meeting was for Trust members – of which there are now apparently around 14,000. I first joined the Trust in June 2014 and […]

    Newcastle United Takeover: The Fans Deserve Better Treatment Than This

    Monday 20th July 2020. 102 days since the English Premier League received the submission seeking approval of a change of ownership of Newcastle United. Since then, there has been no decision, no communication, just silence from those who have been asked to approve the change. In the meantime, there’s been lots of noise, much of it irrelevant, from a number of sources seeking to stop the takeover happening. The UK media, who seem to be pursuing their usual anti-Newcastle agenda Amnesty International bein sports in […]

    Get Ready For The Next Newcastle United Rollercoaster Ride!

    Had my fingers crossed in the last week hoping that there might actually have been some sort of announcement to say things had been finalised on the transfer of our club to Amanda Staveley and her chums to finally put us out of our misery. But nothing again. The EPL checks on the fitness of the new owners to run a footy club have now been going on for 6 weeks and I imagine that not many United fans have got any finger nails left […]

     
  • As Annual Newcastle United Takeover Talk Dies Down (Again) – Had Enough Yet?

    As Annual Newcastle United Takeover Talk Dies Down (Again) – Had Enough Yet?

    As we’ve written many times before on this independent fan-powered website, we tend to yawn when the alleged annual rumour arrives about a potential takeover of Newcastle United by the latest wealthy owners. The timing of such rumours always seems to coincide with the opening of a transfer window. fancy that! Like Wimbledon or The Open you can almost stick a reminder in your new diary each Christmas! A cynic might suggest that the rumours are a ploy, a device to distract attention from the […]

     
  • Reaction: Newcastle United Free Season Tickets

    Reaction: Newcastle United Free Season Tickets

    Yesterday, Newcastle United made around 10,000 “half” extra season tickets available to existing season ticket holders on a first come, first served basis. Cue an online scramble by thousands of fans looking to take advantage of this early christmas present. The tickets were quickly snapped up and enable the new holders to watch every home game remaining this season, from Everton on 28th December for nothing. The decision to offer the free tickets seems to have come following a relatively poor (for United, anyway) crowd […]

     
  • “Clueless On Tyneside” – Reaction To Newcastle United v Wolverhampton Wanderers

    “Clueless On Tyneside” – Reaction To Newcastle United v Wolverhampton Wanderers

    Newcastle United 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 1 Another inept tactical display where you didn’t know what the team was trying to do, other than get the ball to Allan Saint-Maximin and hope that he can somehow trick his way into the box and get a shot off. I watched the game with my Dad, and I have read half time reports and listened to the manager, but we both thought that the first half was just a case of Wolves not turning up, rather than us […]

     
  • Prediction: Newcastle United Crowds Will Fall Even Further

    Prediction: Newcastle United Crowds Will Fall Even Further

    Following on from John Joseph’s article yesterday I’d like to add some views on the falling crowd situation at St James’ Park. Its the usual cycle: * Ashley stays for the money * A section of our fans believe staying away will help force a sale * A section of our fans don’t believe staying away will change anything The only consistent factors here are Ashley still owning the club and the same fans turning up to watch the same rubbish every week. The appointment […]
