Janmaat – If You Don´t Give 100% In Premier League You Get Killed

Sunday, October 4th, 2015 · 7 Comments

Daryl Janmaat was one of the few players willing to give an interview after the 6-1 mauling we took at the Etihad on Saturday so once again the Dutchman showed his courage – which he also happens to show on the field too.

Fabricio Coloccini should be one of the players ho speaks after each defeat like this – Steve McClaren should demand it – whoever is the captain.

McClaren – We Will Turn This Club Around But We Need Fighters

Sunday, October 4th, 2015 · 13 Comments

Steve McClaren seems to have hit the nail on the head when he says that when Newcastle concede a goal there are too many heads drop and when Manchester City went ahead yesterday early in the second half it was apparent that heads dropped.

Manchester City took advantage of that period by scoring another four goals to go 6-1 up before Newcastle woke up a little bit and managed to play the game out without any further damage.

At one point it looked like we could concede a lot more than six.

Can Cheick Tiote Play A Role For Newcastle This Season?

Sunday, October 4th, 2015 · 126 Comments

With Jack Colback missing from the team yesterday due to injury,  Steve McClaren put in Yoan Gouffran in defensive midfield, which shows the lack of depth we have in the team at the moment.

Newcastle currently have 10 injured players out according to with Jack Colback said to be fit again on 18th October so we don´t know if Jack will make the next game at home to Norwich City in two weeks time.

Alan Shearer Has It Absolutely Right On Newcastle

Sunday, October 4th, 2015 · 30 Comments

One thing we are finding out about Newcastle’s players is they are not mentally tough and as soon as they went behind to an early second half Aguero goal yesterday  they simply collapsed and allowed Manchester City to pick them apart.

It was hard to watch.
