Carver Pulling Out All The Stops To Get The Win Tomorrow

Saturday, May 23rd, 2015 · 100 Comments

We’re sure that John Carver has gone through hell and high water these past 12 weeks, when we haven’t been able to get one win and we have only one point from 10 games, but John knows that if his team can beat an out of form West Ham side tomorrow – at least we will be safe and be able to look forward to Premier League football again next season.

Who’s Really Responsible For Newcastle’s Demise?

Saturday, May 23rd, 2015 · 28 Comments

Because of our demise over the last three months some good news on one of our players has gone unreported to a large extent and Jonas Gutierrez has made a terrific and brave recovery from his testicular cancer, and has been one of Newcastle’s best players over the last several weeks.

Pundit Gives Surprise Forecast Of Newcastle Result

Saturday, May 23rd, 2015 · 10 Comments

It’s fair to say that the pundits have given Newcastle a rough ride of it since we beat Aston Villa 1-0 to get our last win back on Saturday, 28th February, and that is now exactly 12 weeks ago today when we did that – so three months without a win in 10 games and it’s worse than that because all have been defeats except one.

:( :( :(

Newcastle One Of The Best Clubs In The World

Friday, May 22nd, 2015 · 31 Comments

When Alan Pardew left Newcastle it seemed it would be the biggest club he ever managed, and that he would draw on all the experiences he had during some (very) tough times at the club – over four years,  and that already seems to be happening.

Earlier today we published an article where Alan said he would send messages of encouragement  to Carver and the senior players in an effort to help them win the game against West Ham on Sunday.

Newcastle New Head Coach Search – The Plot Thickens

Friday, May 22nd, 2015 · 11 Comments

Steve McClaren is refusing to resign from Derby County and the Press Association is reporting the 54 year-old has been asked to resign after he met the Chief Executive, Sam Rush, and incoming Chairman, Mel Morris, last night but he is refusing to resign.

It seems that Derby believe the approaches made by Newcastle are responsible for Derby’s drop off in form in the second half of the season, when they finished in 8th place and only won only two of their last 13 games, but did draw six of them.

This Is How Pardew Will Try To Help Newcastle Survive

Friday, May 22nd, 2015 · 127 Comments

Alan Pardew had faults as a head coach,  but you cannot argue that he is an experienced coach who has been through the wringer  quite a few times – including about five times at Newcastle, and he can motivate his players.

The best to remember with Alan at the club was his 5th top finish in 2012  –  and we were close to getting 4th place – plus the many wins we got against top teams during Alan’s four years at the club.
