Newcastle United have issued this statement tonight, and tomorrow they will follow up on another statement on the subject.

The Club has noted the Channel 4 ‘Dispatches’ program aired tonight (Monday, 27th April) and in particular the reference to the terms of the retail relationship between the Club and Sports Direct.

The Club is extremely disappointed no-one from Channel 4 contacted the Club for comment.

The information broadcast is wholly inaccurate and the Club will provide further information and clarification tomorrow (Tuesday, 28th April).

It’s Not Surprising – Top Newcastle Players Want Out In Summer

Monday, April 27th, 2015 · 4 Comments

With the way Newcastle has been managed from the top this season,  it’s clear to everybody that owner Mike Ashley’s ambitions are not in building a top side (ever) at Newcastle, and players are starting to see that clearly and want out in the summer to join a proper football club – one that wants to build a good side and challenge for European competition every season would be a good definition of a proper club – they want to be good on the pitch.

Those are not Newcastle’s ambitions under Mike Ashley.

We Need To Keep Our Heads And Win A Game

Monday, April 27th, 2015 · 19 Comments

Two sides still below us in the league table Hull and Leicester will play their games in hand this week – Hull City entertain Liverpool tomorrow night and Leicester City play Chelsea on Wednesday night – and usually you would expect two away wins in those games, but it’s getting near the end of the season and there could be some shocks in store.

Shearer Fears Relegation – Players Are An Embarrassment

Monday, April 27th, 2015 · 30 Comments

Alan Shearer now thinks that Newcastle can definitely be relegated this season, and that would be for the second time in a short six years, and this time it will not be as easy to get back at out first attempt, because many players would want to leave the club and we cannot see good players wanting to join a Championship side – and we also cannot see Mike Ashley wanting to take a shower on his Newcastle United investment by selling the club when they are in the second division.

We cannot see good players wanting to join Newcastle this summer even if survive in the Premier League, and we cannot see some of our better players wanting to stay – they will want to join a proper football club after the trials and tribulations on Tyneside.
