Former Newcastle Coach Surprisingly Sacked By Leicester City

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015 · 49 Comments

In what is really a surprise move, Leicester City have tonight fired former Newcastle coach Nigel Pearson – their manager – who seemed to pull off a miracle to save Leicester with an unbelievable run in the final quarter of the season that kept Leicester in the Premier League and they even finished above Newcastle in the league.

The Foxes won an amazing seven of their final nine games of the season and got 22 points from those games,  including a final game of the season 5-1 home win over relegated QPR.

That was 9 points more than Newcastle got in the final 19 league games of the season, and dare we say it – Leicester also beat us 1-0 in the FA Cup in early January.

Newcastle Move For Senegal International Midfielder

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015 · 23 Comments

There were reports earlier today that Newcastle were interested in signing 20 year-old top Monaco winger Lucas Ocampos, but news coming in tonight is that the Argentine may have signed for Marseilles,  where he spent the second half of last season on loan.

If that’s true then maybe that will open up the way for Newcastle to sign Florian Thauvin, and also news tonight from Italy that Newcastle are interested in Lille midfielder Idrissa Gueye, the Senegal International midfielder.

Newcastle Enter Race For Exciting Argentine Winger

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015 · 122 Comments

Football site TMW are reporting that Newcastle are now after 20 year-old top Monaco winger Lucas  Ocampos.

Newcastle have been scouting Monaco this year – and we have been interested in their Algerian International center-back Aymen Abdennour – but maybe we have also been watching their 20 year-old Argentine winger – who played 26 times with four goals for Monaco last season.

Cynicism Grows At Newcastle

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015 · 20 Comments

There is a lot of cynicism among Newcastle fans this summer, and it hasn’t been helped by Newcastle’s slow start in this summer’s transfer market,  although there’s still plenty of time for Newcastle to get the six players in (or something close to that) we need to have a good team next season.

While we were not overjoyed by Steve McClaren’s appointment earlier this month – we’ve been surprised what a good standing he has with players and coaches in the game, and we always knew he was a real gentleman – that was never a problem with Steve.

Steve has gone through hell and high water in his coaching career but has always kept his dignity.
