Jonas Gutierrez Receives European Accolade

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015 · 4 Comments

It was a perfect end to the season for Newcastle United on Sunday, when we beat West Ham 2-0 and the lads played extremely well – and it was the perfect end to his Newcastle career for Jonas Gutierrez who scored the second goal with 5 minutes to play and was easily our Man of the Match with 64% of the vote.

Jonas was in the Premier League side of the week yesterday, and today he has been named in the the European Team of the Week – and is also the European player of the week with the maximum score possible.

So not only is his performance being recognized,  but his gutsy fight-back from testicular cancer is rightfully also being recognized around the football world – and it’s a great human story.

This Is John Carver’s Case He Will Make To Charnley

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015 · 32 Comments

John Carver’s best chance to get the Newcastle job is to point out to Lee Charnley that he was given a threadbare squad in early January,  and then lost some players before even February rolled around – Davide Santon was allowed to leave for Inter-Milan, and young players like Haris Vuckic and Remie Streete were even sent on loan to Rangers, and nobody was brought into the club to reinforce an already weak squad.

The Disaster Scenario Could Still Happen At Newcastle

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015 · 19 Comments

John Carver goes on holiday tomorrow, and he will be making his case that he should be the new head coach at Newcastle before then, and that’s even though his poor coaching and man-management skills plunged Newcastle into a relegation scrap at the end of the season.

John got only 13 points in the 19 league games he managed when the club had their worst losing streak ever by  in the Premier League – eight games lost on the trot.

Intriguing Situation With Newcastle Head Coach Position

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015 · 12 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.
