Newcastle Line Up This Striker For January Move

Saturday, October 3rd, 2015 · 23 Comments

Newcastle were linked with Wolves striker Benik Afobe in the summer but at one point Steve McClaren said Newcastle were not after the England U21 striker.

But with Newcastle’s terrible  start to this season, we expect the Newcastle Board to be working hard behind the scenes to line up some players the club can bring in to strengthen the squad in the January transfer window.

Newcastle Hit Rock Bottom – Here´s What´s Wrong With Our Players

Saturday, October 3rd, 2015 · 162 Comments

Newcastle put in an excellent first half display and should have been at least two goals up after Mitrovic had opened the scoring after 18 minutes and Newcastle scored again, but it was flagged for offside.

The TV replays showed that no Newcastle players were offside and then Mitrovic had a great chance to score again – but his shot was well blocked by goalkeeper Joe Hart.

So we continued where we left off against Chelsea – but then we conceded five goals in the first 17 minutes of the second half as this Newcastle side collapsed once again.

Alan Shearer´s Twitter Reaction To Heavy Newcastle Defeat

Saturday, October 3rd, 2015 · 61 Comments

Alan Shearer like most of the rest of us thought Newcastle played well in that first half and we probably could (should) have been ahead after we missed a couple of good chances after Aleksandar Mitrovic scored his first goal for Newcastle with a header to put us 1-0 ahead.
