Newcastle To Make Assessment On Whether To Sign Striker

Saturday, August 1st, 2015 · 35 Comments

As we expected Northampton Town striker Ivan Toney was at St. James’ Park for the game against Borussia Monchengladbach, and it looks like he is still waiting for a decision to be made by Newcastle on whether they should sign him.

He has been on a two day trail training with the Newcastle Development squad and he will await the decision made by Newcastle.

Steve McClaren Coy On Whether There Will Be More Signings

Saturday, August 1st, 2015 · 9 Comments

Steve McClaren qs a little bit coy on whether Newcastle will be signing nay more players – and as far as signing any before next Sunday’s tough opening Premier League game against Southampton – probably not.

Most fans want to see another central defender brought in and that’s been identified in polls as the player we need the most, and you could see why today when a simple mistake at the back basically cost us the game, even though we hit the woodwork twice and on another day may have had a couple of goals.

Things Are Improving At Newcastle – Here’s A Test

Saturday, August 1st, 2015 · 15 Comments

There was some news today that Fabricio Coloccini may  be leaving Newcastle, based on him not being included in the squad for the game against Borussia Monchengladbach – the final game of pre-season.

But another simpler explanation was that he couldn’t play because of his Achilles injury, so that’s why he wasn’t even on the bench.

Here’s the best we can find for the video highlights – it’s the Fox video – but it does show the two times Newcastle hit the post in this game, and the poor goal we gave away to lose our last pre-season friendly.

McClaren Pleased With Performance But Still Lots To Do

Saturday, August 1st, 2015 · 7 Comments

Steve McClaren and the Newcastle team have put up with a very tough pre-season, and the tour over here of the US made things a lot more difficult.

That was because of all the traveling involved, the extreme heat which the players are not used to, and then the jet lag when the players both arrive in the US and then arrive back in Newcastle.

That all helps to debilitate the players, the coaches and the journalists  accompanying them on the tour, so it may look glamorous on paper, but it’s a real grind.
