This Youngster Could Be A Surprise Success At Newcastle

Friday, October 9th, 2015 · 26 Comments

It will be very interesting to see what Newcastle do with 19 year-old  Ivan Toney this season and from what we’ve seen of the 19 year-old so far this season he looks to be a very decent signing.

And since he’s English and he is used to English football after playing 60 games with 13 goals for his home town club Northampton, maybe this lad can come through for us this season – but that will depend on whether Steve McClaren sends him out on loan or keeps him on Tyneside.

Why These Games Are The Most Important

Friday, October 9th, 2015 · 6 Comments

We are hoping that Newcastle can turn things around soon – we are  praying that Newcastle can turn things around – so maybe even in the next two games which are Norwich at home and Sunderland on the road we can do something we haven’t done so far this season – win the games.

These two games are winnable games if any are this season and 6 points would be great before Newcastle get too entrenched into being bottom of the league with no wins so far this season.

Now’s the time to start putting some wins up on the board.

This Was An Alarming Decision By Steve McClaren

Friday, October 9th, 2015 · 14 Comments

It was telling that with Jack Colback out injured for the game last Saturday at Manchester City Steve McClaren brought in winger Yoan Gouffran in defensive midfield and the Frenchman didn’t have a good game and was eventually replaced after 66 minutes of that game but Newcastle had folded completely and we were 6-1 down.
