If Newcastle Players Don´t Toughen Up – It´s Bad News

Monday, October 5th, 2015 · 66 Comments

What has been apparent as much as anything this season is our players are not mentally tough – when we conceded a goal there´s not a reaction and it´s almost like it was in the relegation season when once we went down too many players assumed we would lose the game and we lost a lot of games that season (18).

Our squad was a decent squad in 2008-2009 and at the time the wage bill at Newcastle was the 6th highest in the Premier League but we still went down and we were struggling with relegation almost from the start of the season.

Newcastle Teenager Progressing Well – Improving On Loan

Monday, October 5th, 2015 · 2 Comments

Adam Armstrong is doing well on loan at Coventry and he´s scored 8 goals in 9 appearances so far this season and he´s top of the League One scoring charts although he will miss the next two games due to being on duty for the England U19 side.

Last week Steve McClaren checked up on the 18 year-old by calling Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray.

Newcastle One Point Worse Off Than In 1999

Monday, October 5th, 2015 · 147 Comments

Newcastle have 11 games to go before the end of this year – which so far has been horrendous for Newcastle with just 16 points from the 27 league games played – compare that to the 47 points Crystal Palace have picked up under Alan Pardew this year in those 27 games.

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

Monday, October 5th, 2015 · 27 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 · 11 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.
