Lee left Newcastle  three years later and joined West Ham after playing 98 times for the Magpies with 11 goals.

McClaren Wants To Build Team Around This Specimen Of A Man

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 · 53 Comments

Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren spent an hour on BBS Radio Newcastle taking call form fans – a thing that were popular when Sir Bobby Robson managed the club, and one of the things that came out of that was that he has told Lee Charnley that Newcastle must keep Moussa Sissoko.

It also seems that Moussa is more than happy these days although we keep seeing ridiculous reports from the north-west about whether Liverpool or Manchester City will be the ones who sign Sissoko this month.

McClaren – We’re Trying To Address Defense – Colo Stays Captain

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 · 24 Comments

Newcastle fans seem to be happy with the three players we have brought in so far this summer, but from our play in pre-season that defense of ours is still the big weakness,  and for the last three season we’ve let in 63 goals, 59 goals and a massive 68 goals – so that’s 190 goals in total in three seasons and it’s simply not good enough.

The good news is that Steve McClaren seems well aware of that – and he has said today – talking to BBC Newcastle – that the club are on the look-out for defensive reinforcements.
