Intriguing Situation With Newcastle Head Coach Position

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015 · 2 Comments

Derby County have terminated the contract of their manager Steve McClaren with immediate effect,  so Steve is out of a job at the exact time Newcastle will be looking to appoint somebody to the position of new head coach on Tyneside.

There was news that Derby wanted Steve to resign his position over the weekend,  but he refused to do that and said the interest of Newcastle United for his services this year had had no effect on him.

But the Derby Board think that was why Derby tailed off rather dramatically in the promotion stakes, and finally finished up in 8th place.

Newcastle Has Been A Big Part Of My Life

Monday, May 25th, 2015 · 80 Comments

Jonas Gutierrez has played his last game for Newcastle United, and the Argentine International made 205 appearances for the club with 12 goals, the last appearance and the last goal being yesterday in the sensational 2-0 win at home to West Ham that saved Newcastle’s Premier League status  at the death.

Jonas was easily our Man of the Match with 64% of the vote – as he cemented his place in the annals of Newcastle United’s great history.

One Of These Top Managers Could Soon Become Available

Monday, May 25th, 2015 · 22 Comments

Brendan Rodgers is waiting to hear if he will still be the Liverpool manager next season, after The Red’s worst defeat on Sunday at Stoke since way back in 1953 ,  when an improving Potters side under manager Mark Hughes were 5-0 up at the half – and Liverpool were simply routed on the last day of the season – just think of the Newcastle game at Manchester City when we lost 5-0 and it was that bad.

But Liverpool spent over £110M last summer on new players coming into the club – and most haven’t paid off.

Former Sunderland Chairman’s Plaudits To Ashley

Monday, May 25th, 2015 · 214 Comments

Mike Ashley gave his first ever interview since buying Newcastle United eight years ago – and that was the first time Newcastle fans had even heard the voice of Mike Ashley and to us he seems to have an accent very much like former England manager Terry Venables.

I Am Very Happy To Be Staying Here With Newcastle

When that cross came over after from Jonas Gutierrez on the left wing after 54 minutes in yesterday’s game, you could see how determined Moussa Sissoko was and he was able out-jump two West defenders to head the ball down and past Hammers goalkeeper Adrian, and the Frenchman got the all important go-ahead goal for Newcastle.

30 minutes later it was Jonas again, and this time he rifled the ball home to get us a fantastic 2-0 win – and Premier League safety.
