Players Deserve Credit For Yesterday’s Fine Performance

Monday, May 25th, 2015 · 46 Comments

In what was Newcastle’s most important game in six years, Newcastle players produced an excellent performance of skill, commitment, passion and drive to get our first win in eleven games, and that dies some doing.

Alan Shearer Praises Another Newcastle Legend

Monday, May 25th, 2015 · 19 Comments

It was really a fairy tale ending to Jonas Gutierrez’ career on Tyneside, and as well as always being a popular player in the dressing room, Jonas has been fighting testicular cancer for a couple of years and he’s come out on top and won his battle against the disease.

And to be honest, he’s been an inspiration to the team all year – and yesterday he was our Man of the Match with 64% of the vote, as the 31 year-old Argentine made one and scored one in yesterday’s game against the Hammers, to give Newcastle a great win that saved us from relegation.

John Carver Found Lacking In Several Areas

Monday, May 25th, 2015 · 15 Comments

John Carver was talking a good game after yesterday’s fantastic performance and 2-0 win over West Ham, and that saved us from relegation and Hull City take the drop.

And that win was the first since February for Newcastle and followed the worst run in the Premier League for us with just one draw and nine defeats in 10 games, during which time we plummeted down the league table to 4th bottom place, but the win leaves us in 15th place for the season, and hey – it could have been worse.

Hints Newcastle May Already Have Top Coach Lined Up

Monday, May 25th, 2015 · 88 Comments

Kevin Keegan is not exactly an admirer of Newcastle owner Mike Ashley, after Kevin was treated badly and unfairly when he was Newcastle’s manager for the second time back in 2008, but only for a short nine months.

But Kevin has talked to beIN Sports,  and he thinks that one reason Mike Ashley was so upbeat in his Sky Sports interview one hour before the game yesterday, was that Newcastle may already have a top experienced head coach lined up.

Alan Shearer Bemused By Mike Ashley’s Interview

Sunday, May 24th, 2015 · 29 Comments

Mike Ashley gave his very first interview since becoming Newcastle United owner almost eight years ago – and he said some interesting things – but the proof of the pudding is in the eating,  and we will have to wait to see if he does change his modus operandi in the summer – and we’ll get some idea if there will be any change at all from the owner.

It will be interesting to see which players come in, but even more interesting will be who is allowed to leave the club – or who pushes hard to leave the club this summer.

Our Man Of The March Is Now A Newcastle Legend

Sunday, May 24th, 2015 · 22 Comments

If you had written about what would happen to Jonas Gutierrez when he returned to Newcastle earlier this year,  after his gutsy and winning fight against testicular cancer – nobody would have believed you.

But Jonas has written his legend into the annals of Newcastle United, by putting is some very good performances for Newcastle in their fight against relegation and today he was terrific – and made Moussa Sissoko’s goal after 54 minutes with an inch perfect cross from the left wing – and then  sealed the all important win with a goal with his left foot which was nicely deflected past goalkeeper Adrian.
