Wednesday, October 7th, 2015 · 65 Comments

The goal right now for January – given Newcastle’s precarious position in the Premier League already – has to be to try to get up to four players brought in either permanently or on loan and they could come from all over the place.

Newcastle Line Up Barcelona Forward For January

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015 · 11 Comments

The Chronicle is reporting that Newcastle scouts are checking on potential new players to be brought in over the January transfer window with the likelihood being that we will be struggling with relegation at that time.

There are eleven games to go before the end of the year and let’s hope we get a lot more than the measly 3 points we have gained from the first eight games.

Deja Vu All Over Again – Four Managers In A Year

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015 · 10 Comments

When Newcastle survived in the Premier League by the skin of their teeth in May, after John Carver had come in for the departed Alan Pardew and almost took Newcastle down to the Championship – the very last thing the club wanted was a bad start to this season.

It’s not rocket science after a six goal humiliation to suggest that Newcastle head coach needs to sort out his defense, especially when the team have conceded 190 goals over the lat three seasons and have already conceded 17 goals in just eight Premier League games this season that has Newcastle rock bottom of the league table.

Some Rare Good News For Newcastle

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015 · 6 Comments

Newcastle getting hammered 6-1 just before the International break in a game in which we conceded all six goals in about 20 minutes just about guaranteed it would be doom and gloom on Tyneside.

Defense has been our Achilles heel for three seasons now and why it wasn’t fixed in the summer we just don’t know.
