Newcastle Fans Are Feeling Excited Again

Saturday, August 1st, 2015 · 8 Comments

Steven Taylor has come right back into the reckoning at Newcastle under new coach Steve McClaren, who called Steven up to the England squad back in 2007 when Steve was the England manager and gave the Whitley Bay lad his only England B cap that same year.

Steven has suffered a lot of injuries in the last five and half years at Newcastle playing only 85 times for Newcastle since January of 2010 – our promotion season.

Northampton Town striker Ivan Toney is on Tyneside and was supposed to have had a medical at Newcastle before a deal was signed for the 19 year-old, and there was news yesterday that Toney trained with the squad yesterday with Steve McClaren looking on.

The Chronicle reported yesterday the youngster is essentially on a two day trial and will train with the U21 squad as he is assessed by the coaches, with a view to signing a deal that will be up to £500K.

Good news tonight that Chancel Mbemba’s visa has come through and he will be available to play against Borussia Monchengladbach in the final friendly of the season tomorrow afternoon.

The game kicks off at 3:00 pm at St. James’ Park and it will also be the home debut of new striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

So it should be a treat for those fans who can make it to the game tomorrow to see our two new signings in action.

10 Memorable Sir Bobby Robson Quotes – Plus 8-0 Win Video

Friday, July 31st, 2015 · 66 Comments

It’s six years since the great Sir Bobby Robson passed away from cancer, and we have put out an article today in remembrance of the great man.

Bobby was great at making statements that were not quite right and an example of those was when he said – “we scored nine and you cannot score more than that” – following an 8-0 win at St. James’ Park against Sheffield Wednesday in his first home game as Newcastle manager back in 1999.

Newcastle Must Not Make This Mistake This Summer

Friday, July 31st, 2015 · 61 Comments

Newcastle have done quite well so far this summer in getting Gini Wijnaldum, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Chancel Mbemba through the door for around £35M – but as we’ve said before, we still need another three players at least if this summer transfer window is to be successful.

But with the new arrivals – however good they are – it will take some time for them to adjust to the rigors of the Premier League.

Newcastle Linked With Yet Another International Winger

Friday, July 31st, 2015 · 18 Comments

It’s very difficult in transfer windows to know what’s true that’s reported and what’s simply made up.

There has been news for a couple of months that Newcastle may be interested in Hull City winger Ahmed Elmohamady, who played at Sunderland with Steve Bruce and seemed to follow him to Hull City – he has one year left on his contract at The Tigers.
