This is going to be our new web-site on the great Newcastle United Football Club, with our news and analysis of the news of the day about Newcastle United.
Unfortunately I had hoped to transfer my old site nufcblog.com over to this new hosting service but was not allowed to do that – so we will start over from scratch. Yes,we know the site is very plain right now – but it will hopefully be a lot better by the end of this week
Although the owner of SoccerLens – Ahmed Bilal – refused to let us move the site over, he has nevertheless allowed us to transfer the articles and comments – so with any luck we’ll have all the old stuff on www.nufcsite.com shortly. However, as far as the look of our new web site, we’ll be building that up as we go, and hope to improve the look of it very soon. We have no idea what will happen with www.nufcblog.com.
For the record, from April 23rd of this year, when we launched the Newcastle United Blog, we had a total of 1.86M hits and in total 1,356 articles during that time. One of the big draws and advantages of the site is that our readers are able to offer their own comments and opinions on the news stories of the day – and readers like yourselves posted a fantastic 26,846 comments. That’s almost 20 comments for each article.
We will continue with these type of articles and hope to get even closer to the Geordie Fans and also to our Newcastle United club.
Finally – when you leave comments on our new site, it seems like I will need to OK your first comment so please be patient, while we try to sort stuff out. But at least you’ll be able to read the stories – which I’ll continue to publish from today on – but on this new site.
We also make no apolgy about looking on the bright side of events at Newcastle United – although as you know that’s sometimes difficult. 😀
But we are absolutely convinced that the new management at the club will bring success to Newcastle. We have no doubt about that and yes, there will be peaks and valleys on the way to that success.
