This is A Very Good Move By Newcastle

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016 · 23 Comments

It looks like Newcastle United will be going on a winter break to La Manga in southeastern Spain during our 18 days enforced break starting after Saturday’s game at Chelsea – and the news is coming from the Norwegian press.

The next weekend after the Chelsea game is the FA Cup 5th round and we are out of that competition at the first attempt again.

The next weekend is the League Cup final – Manchester City vs Liverpool – when we were supposed to be playing City at home.

Newcastle Star Reveals Some Hard Days After Everton Debacle

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016 · 108 Comments

Last Wednesday was supposed to be the introduction of our new team after Newcastle had done well in the transfer market with the acquisition of four new players.

Yes, it was a difficult game at Everton but there was hope because The Toffees were going through a really tough spell and what better time to get a good result at Goodison Park?

But it didn’t exactly turn out that way with 10 of our players asleep in the first half – and only Rob Elliot keeping Newcastle in the game with some alert saves.

Poll – Can Newcastle Win At Chelsea?

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016 · 10 Comments

At some point in our final seven away games of the season we will need to pick up some wins if we are going to survive in the Premier League this season – and our next game on the road is at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, 13th February (unlucky for some) in the early kick-off game at 12:30 pm.

That’s our last game until March 2nd when we are at Stoke City, so it would be good to get something out of the game.
