Monday, March 2nd, 2015 · 66 Comments

It;s looking like there is every chance that John Carver will play Jonas Gutierrez in the first team for the first time since he made a 71st minute substitute at Cardiff City on October 5th of 2013 when we won that game 2-1 with two goals from Loic Remy.

Prodigy Injured Again – It Could Have All Been Avoided

Monday, March 2nd, 2015 · 21 Comments

It’s never a good thing when you bring a player back too early from an injury – especially a hamstring injury – but that’s what Newcastle did at the end of October against Manchester City in the Capital One Cup, and it was even against medical advice.

It Was Fitting This Player Got Newcastle The 3 Points

Sunday, March 1st, 2015 · 20 Comments

We don’t know where Newcastle would be if the great Papiss Cisse hadn’t managed to get 11 Premier League goals this season for us, and Papiss has scored more than one third of Newcastle’s 32 goals in the league this term.

Alan Shearer – Mike Ashley Has Killed Newcastle’s Ambitions

Sunday, March 1st, 2015 · 12 Comments

Alan Shearer didn’t have a happy time of it as the manager of Newcastle for those last eight games of the season back in 2009, when we could only get 5 points from the 24 on offer, and we were relegated when we lost 1-0 at Aston Villa in the final game of the season.

That was Mike Ashley’s second season in charge of Newcastle United.
