AC Milan Enter Race For Newcastle Target

Friday, October 9th, 2015 · 44 Comments

There are reports coming out of Italy that AC Milan will join the race to try to sign Inter-Milan center back Andrea Ranocchia in January, after he has lost his place in the Inter side and is no longer captain.

Andrea doesn’t seem to be wanted by Inter coach Roberto Mancini, and it looks like he will be on his way during the January transfer window.

This Was An Alarming Decision By Steve McClaren

Friday, October 9th, 2015 · 13 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.

This Is The Real Question To Ask About Alan Pardew

Thursday, October 8th, 2015 · 107 Comments

There’s recent discussion about whether the Sack Pardew crew were right in protesting to get Alan Pardew out of the club after we went seven games without winning last season and we’ve read some revisionism articles in the local papers.

It was time for a change, but we shouldn’t have let Pardew leave at the beginning of the year half-way through season,  when we didn’t have a ready-made replacement to bring in.

Why Would Newcastle Want To Sign This French International?

Thursday, October 8th, 2015 · 28 Comments

We’re not sure at all why we are being linked with former Newcastle right back Mathieu Debuchy who is now warming the bench at the Gunners after leaving Newcastle about fifteen months ago for £12M.

And Newcastle took £5M of that fee and brought in Dutch International Daryl Janmaat as the replacement and he was our Player of the Season in his first season on Tyneside and he’s been in decent form in the last few games for Newcastle this season.
