Netherlands Win – Wijnaldum Scores – Krul Injured

Saturday, October 10th, 2015 · 2 Comments

Goals from Newcastle’s Georginio Wijnaldum and Wesley Sneijder were enough to give the Netherlands a good 2-1 win in Kazakhstan tonight but Tim Krul, who started the game was taken off with an injury to his right knee after 81 minutes – so that’s not good news.

Tim was replaced by Jeroen Zoet.

This Problem Will Impact Newcastle´s Results This Season

Saturday, October 10th, 2015 · 31 Comments

As well as having a decent side that would not be fighting relegation this season we were also hoping that the long-term problems Newcastle have had with injuries for at least ten years would also be cleared up by the new coaching staff, but neither has happened.

At the present time we are bottom of the league and we have more injuries than any other Premier League club on,  although there is a bit of a shock that we are only a close second to Everton in the Injury Table which gives a point out when a player is injured and is forced to miss one Premier League game.

Alan Pardew Makes Significant Announcement On Newcastle

Saturday, October 10th, 2015 · 52 Comments

We were all sweating just a little bit when Moussa Sissoko seemed to think Yohan Cabaye had joined a bigger club than Newcastle when he joined Alan Pardew´s Crystal Palace in the summer and ended his nightmare at PSG.

But thankfully Palace is not one of the clubs that have overtaken us as a big club (whatever “big” really means).

Well that´s a big relief to be sure!

Newcastle Must Fix These Two Problems Quickly

Saturday, October 10th, 2015 · 2 Comments

There are (at least) two problems that this Newcastle side have this season and both need to be fixed if we are to climb the table and get away from the relegation zone.

The goals for this season were (are?) to finish in the top eight and try to win a cup and the very least fans expected after the travails of last season and £52M spent in the summer transfer window was that we at least wouldn´t be in another relegation battle.

Pundit Gets It Wrong On Newcastle

Saturday, October 10th, 2015 · 2 Comments

Newcastle have failed fairly miserably to bring youngsters through to the first team, but we may be better positioned on that than we have been over the last eight years.

We have youngsters like Adam Armstrong, Freddie Woodman, Rolando Aarons, Kevin Mbabu, Alex Gilliead and newly signed Ivan Toney looking good.

Armstrong and Woodman are out on loan at Coventry and Crawley and they are doing well and the were in the England U19 side that beat Macedonia 2-0 on Thursday.

More Disciplinary Trouble For Newcastle

Saturday, October 10th, 2015 · 4 Comments

There´s no doubt that Newcastle missed Jack Colback last Saturday in defensive midfield when we went crashing at the Etihad Stadium by a score of 6-1 and that made up a cumulative score of 11-1 in our two league games there this year.
