Pardew – Newcastle One Of The Best Clubs In The World

Friday, May 22nd, 2015 · 14 Comments

When Alan Pardew left Newcastle it seemed it would be the biggest club he ever managed, and that he would draw on all the experiences he had during some (very) tough times at the club – over four years,  and that already seems to be happening.

Earlier today we published an article where Alan said he would send messages of encouragement  to Carver and the senior players in an effort to help them win the game against West Ham on Sunday.

Newcastle New Head Coach Search – The Plot Thickens

Friday, May 22nd, 2015 · 8 Comments

Steve McClaren is refusing to resign from Derby County and the Press Association is reporting the 54 year-old has been asked to resign after he met the Chief Executive, Sam Rush, and incoming Chairman, Mel Morris, last night but he is refusing to resign.

It seems that Derby believe the approaches made by Newcastle are responsible for Derby’s drop off in form in the second half of the season, when they finished in 8th place and only won only two of their last 13 games, but did draw six of them.

This Is How Pardew Will Try To Help Newcastle Survive

Friday, May 22nd, 2015 · 124 Comments

Alan Pardew had faults as a head coach,  but you cannot argue that he is an experienced coach who has been through the wringer  quite a few times – including about five times at Newcastle, and he can motivate his players.

The best to remember with Alan at the club was his 5th top finish in 2012  –  and we were close to getting 4th place – plus the many wins we got against top teams during Alan’s four years at the club.

Good News On Two Star Players

Friday, May 22nd, 2015 · 14 Comments

John Carver has given some good news today and it’s on two of our best player – Papiss Cisse and Siem de Jong – Papiss has had another good week of training so we really hope John is as bold as he says he is – and starts Papiss from the start of Sunday’s game – and Siem de Jong – well maybe he can been the bench but the Dutchman has already shown he can score when he comes off the bench.

Magpies Have Star Players Back For Sunday

Friday, May 22nd, 2015 · 108 Comments

It’s do or die for Newcastle on Sunday, so we cannot hold back our best players in the final game of the season, and there’s some good news that Mike Williamson returns from suspension, and this may come as a surprise to some, but Mike can be a big match player for us, and he could come straight back into the side – and Mike  should be motivated to do well in this game – which could be his last for the club.

We didn’t really know the character and personality of John Carver before he became head coach this year, other than he was supposed to be a hot head and lost his cool.
