Uncertainty About Newcastle’s Team Against Norwich

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015 · No Comments

The news today is that our number 9 Papiss Cisse is fit again and the Newcastle head coach has talked today about wanting to see how Mitrovic and Cisse can play together.

Certainly both Ayoze Perez and Papiss are both skillful players who can play off the powerful 6’2″ striker who has been in decent form for both Newcastle and Serbia since he returned from his three match ban for being sent off against Arsenal.

It´s A Huge Opportunity For Newcastle

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015 · 71 Comments

We always knew it was going to be a tough start to the season because we  have played all of last season´s top four clubs in Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal.

And we have already played Southampton and Swansea City who finished in 7th and 8th positions  respectively last term.

Of course on the other side of that we lost both our games to West Ham and Watford far too easily.

New Arrival Could Already Be Newcastle´s Best Player

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015 · 8 Comments

Chancel Mbemba has made a steady and good start to his Newcastle career and he seems to be improving as he gets more Premier League games under his belt.

His improvement in the Premier League hopefully will continue and the 21 year-old may already be our best player in the team and just last night he scored a spectacular goal for DR Congo from all of 30 yards out to win the game 2-1 against Gambon.

Newcastle Star´s Great Goal Last Night – Video

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015 · 14 Comments

21 year-old Newcastle central defender Chancel Mbemba scored a great goal for DR Congo last night against Gabon that turned out to be the winner just two minutes from time.

Maybe he can score one for us on Sunday against Norwich City – he scores after about one minute and 28 seconds if you want to fast track to his goal

Carlo Ancelotti Wants A Return To Premier League

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015 · 13 Comments

The Victor Valdes story that Newcastle want to sign him started we assume because Newcastle lost a top goalkeeper for the season pn Saturday night and Victor Valdes is currently available from Manchester United.

Two and two equals five.

That logic could be applied to say that we could become interested in former Juventus, Milan, Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, who is currently out of a job recovering from back surgery and he said yesterday in the Italian press that he wants to return to the Premier League when he is fit again – towards the end of the year.

It Makes A Great Story – It´s Just Not True

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015 · 8 Comments

It´s not clear where the story that Newcastle United  are after Manchester United and former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes started.

But we suppose somebody saw that we are without Tim Krul for the rest of the season because of his serious ACL knee injury and looked around at which goalkeepers were available and came up with the former Barcelona stalwart who doesn´t seem to have a future at Manchester United under Louis van Gaal.
