Some Rare Good News For Newcastle

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015 · 6 Comments

Newcastle getting hammered 6-1 just before the International break in a game in which we conceded all six goals in about 20 minutes just about guaranteed it would be doom and gloom on Tyneside.

There’s Only One Newcastle Goal For This Season

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015 · 11 Comments
