Steve McClaren Raves About Newcastle Youngster

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015 · 27 Comments

Steve McClaren reminds us just a little bit of Sir Bobby Robson,  in that he’s very congenial and likable and knows a lot about football and how to handle people, and can talk endlessly about the game and players and  is always interesting.

Steve was on a call-in in yesterday on BBC Radio Newcastle Total Sports, and talked about a wide range of subjects.

All Newcastle fans should have a listen to what Steve had to say – the playback is here.

Ashley Has Kept His Promise – It’s So Far So Good

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015 · 26 Comments

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has so far kept his promise made on Sky Sports an hour before our last game kicked off against West Ham on May 24th, when we could have been relegated having taken only one point from the previous ten games played.

Ashley said that we would make our luck from now on, and since then the club have fired John Carver and Steve Stone and hired in Steve McClaren who has brought in a very good coaching staff.

We have also spent big money on bringing in three very good players a defender, a creative midfielder and a striker.

McClaren Wants To Build Team Around This Specimen Of A Man

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 · 53 Comments

Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren spent an hour on BBS Radio Newcastle taking call form fans – a thing that were popular when Sir Bobby Robson managed the club, and one of the things that came out of that was that he has told Lee Charnley that Newcastle must keep Moussa Sissoko.

It also seems that Moussa is more than happy these days although we keep seeing ridiculous reports from the north-west about whether Liverpool or Manchester City will be the ones who sign Sissoko this month.
