Newcastle´s Struggled For 18 Months – We´ll Deal With This

Monday, October 5th, 2015 · No Comments

Newcastle are rock bottom of the league and while we´ve been in the bottom three a few times in the last few years it´s very rare that we have been bottom – especially  for at least two weeks because of the International break.

Mitrovic – Happy With Goal – We Must Win Next Two Games

Monday, October 5th, 2015 · 8 Comments

One of the positive things coming out of the game on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium was the good form of Aleksandar Mitrovic and he got his first goal of the season and should have had a second when the linesman got it wrong and disallowed a goal for offside.

Janmaat – If You Don´t Give 100% In Premier League You Get Killed

Sunday, October 4th, 2015 · 52 Comments

Daryl Janmaat was one of the few players willing to give an interview after the 6-1 mauling we took at the Etihad on Saturday so once again the Dutchman showed his courage – which he also happens to show on the field too.

Fabricio Coloccini should be one of the players ho speaks after each defeat like this – Steve McClaren should demand it – whoever is the captain.

McClaren – We Will Turn This Club Around But We Need Fighters

Sunday, October 4th, 2015 · 14 Comments

Steve McClaren seems to have hit the nail on the head when he says that when Newcastle concede a goal there are too many heads drop and when Manchester City went ahead yesterday early in the second half it was apparent that heads dropped.

Manchester City took advantage of that period by scoring another four goals to go 6-1 up before Newcastle woke up a little bit and managed to play the game out without any further damage.

At one point it looked like we could concede a lot more than six.

Sunday, October 4th, 2015 · 6 Comments

Ayoze Perez has given an interview with MARCA which took place before yesterday´s heavy defeat at Manchester City and Ayoze comes over as a pleasant young man who is very respectful of Newcastle United – the club that gave him his big chance last season and one that Ayoze took with both feet.

Sunday, October 4th, 2015 · 24 Comments

You cannot accuse Moussa Sissoko of not at least being consistent and the French midfielder has been interviewed today by the TV channel Canal+ as he joins up with the French squad.

He has again said he wants to play in the Champions League one day, but that in the summer Newcastle did everything to keep him.

Haven´t we heard this all before?
