Since our web-site started last April 23rd, we have now attained 3M hits, with our last 1M hits coming since December 13th, shortly after we became an independent site.
Kevin Keegan and Billionaire Owner – what else do we need? Nothing.
It’s interesting to note everything that’s happened at Newcastle United, since our site went live last April:
- Glenn Roeder sacked as manager – 6th May, 2007
- Sam Allardyce appointed manager – 15th May, 2007
- Mike Ashley buys Newcastle United for about Â£133M – June, 2007
- Chairman Freddy Shepherd resigns, Chris Mort takes over – 24th July, 2007
- Sam Allardyce sacked – 9th January, 2008
- Kevin Keegan appointed Newcastle United Manager – 16th January, 2008
- Mort appoints recruitment team of Dennis Wise, Tony Jimenez and Jeff Vetere – 28th January, 2008
Many fans would say it’s just another typical season for Newcastle, and it’s still only two thirds over. 😀
But there’s only one Newcastle United and things are certainly never dull at the club.
But we are more confident than ever, that good times are in the not-too-distant future for our club, and we make no apologies for taking a positive outlook on Newcastle United on this site.
But we will also be realistic, and try not to get carried away too many times – although that has proved to be difficult some times since April.
If Newcastle fans had been asked last April – if they could wave a magic wand for success, what would they wish for? We think most fans would have asked for a Billionaire Owner and Kevin Keegan back as the manager.
We have both of those in place at Newcastle United now, and that’s only one reason (or is it two?), that we are so confident of the future success of Newcastle United. You’ve just got to keep believing, and we know for a fact that this summer is going to really exciting for all our fans. as we bring senior players into the club.

Both positive and negative comments are welcome, but try to keep the ideas constructive. While “You’re useless” may well be true, it doesn’t really help us to improve. 😀
Some basic facts – since April 23rd last year – we have published 2,145 stories and have received 56,744 comments to those stories, which have been split into 58 categories. We are now averaging over 26 comments for each article, which we think is good, and it also seems to be rising.
Your comments are a key part of this site’s attraction – as we all know by now – so please keep them coming.
To think maybe if I had joined the Evening Chronicle 35 years ago, rather than IBM, I may have been like Alan Oliver – well maybe not – no offense Alan. 😀
Comments welcome – and you can check our total hits just beneath the main banner on the left – at any time – it’s a running total.
Thank you all very much, and now for Newcastle United to be successful again – which is really what we all want.
Upward and Onward.
