Newcastle Will Find It Difficult To Sign Top Targets This Summer

There were reports coming out of France over the weekend that Ghana international winger Andre Ayew had decided to join Roma when he leave Marseilles this summer,  when his contract runs out and he becomes a free agent.

We Need To Keep Our Heads And Win A Game

Monday, April 27th, 2015 · 18 Comments

Two sides still below us in the league table Hull and Leicester will play their games in hand this week – Hull City entertain Liverpool tomorrow night and Leicester City play Chelsea on Wednesday night – and usually you would expect two away wins in those games, but it’s getting near the end of the season and there could be some shocks in store.

Shearer Fears Relegation – Players Are An Embarrassment

Monday, April 27th, 2015 · 29 Comments

Alan Shearer now thinks that Newcastle can definitely be relegated this season, and that would be for the second time in a short six years, and this time it will not be as easy to get back at out first attempt, because many players would want to leave the club and we cannot see good players wanting to join a Championship side – and we also cannot see Mike Ashley wanting to take a shower on his Newcastle United investment by selling the club when they are in the second division.

We cannot see good players wanting to join Newcastle this summer even if survive in the Premier League, and we cannot see some of our better players wanting to stay – they will want to join a proper football club after the trials and tribulations on Tyneside.

Our Man of The Match Could Also Be Newcastle’s Savior

Monday, April 27th, 2015 · 6 Comments

It was great to see Siem de Jong get on with about 15 minutes remaining on Saturday against Swansea, and the Dutchman looked what he is – a class player with excellent skills – and he will get another run-out tomorrow maybe in a behind the scenes game or the U21 game at Derby County –  but John Carver says he will not start at Leicester City on Saturday.

Leadership Coming From This Newcastle Player

Monday, April 27th, 2015 · 141 Comments

There is not much leadership coming from John Carver as the head coach these days, and he seems to be too  overwhelmed by the job, and there’s not much leadership coming from captain Fabricio Coloccini, who will probably join his home town club San Lorenzo in the summer, but we have been impressed with what Siem de Jong has said since Saturday’s defeat, and he is definitely a future captain of Newcastle and maybe even for next season.

We Did Everything On Saturday – We Ran, We Fought

This Newcastle side is looking like the team that was relegated six years ago and after every defeat – there;s been seven in a row the players have come out ans said what they think the fans want to hear and say we fought and tried and all that good stuff, and John Carver comes out ans says he;s brave and will fight onto the end.
