Happy New Year To Newcastle Fans Everywhere


I started this blog on April 23rd of 2007, about 10 years ago (seems that long), and after over 55M hits, we are still going – yes I know it’s all very surprising.

Ed and Madeline Harrison
This shot was taken in High Heaton, Newcastle and yes the sun was shining!


We’d like to extend our best wishes to Newcastle fans everywhere,  and all the very best in 2012, and let’s hope at the end of the year the lads are doing really well – and we’re in Europe too!

With any luck we’ll still be around next year at this time – here’s hoping.

    All the best Ed and family and many congrats for the dedication to the cause and fine blog.

    We can all hope for a change in direction from our illustrious leader but I fear it’ll be wafer thin squad, SDA and SD shirt sponsors to look forward to.
    The future’s bright at SJP but only because of all the tacky advertising now adorning our great stadium.

    Oh btw tht MSI Douglas talks some utter john pap..

    Sunday Sun:
    Vertonghen Too Expensive then a few pages away it says a move for Vertonghen and Cissokho will be more likely to happen than raid the english market but the board room have been talkin about Chris Samba

    Response in us getting in to europe

    Do u think pardew realises for us to get ANYWHeRE in europe we wud need back up strikers, new wingers (jonas and obertan arent good enough to supply in the premier league never mind europe)
    And new full backs

    Also pardew said “we have been to a few clubs to check prices” (when talking about selling players) so I guess man utd are buying tiote and cabaye , so for europe we only need a new striker (or 2)
    Atleast 4 midfielders and a full back to replace simmo o and then we also need some defenders for depth

    Well MA wheres the cash :P?

    @t00ntime
    Hopefully Pardew says that cause MA is willing to give him a bit more than £8 million alone in spending power.
    No one knows how much we have to spend outside the boardroom, included Carr and Carver.
    I don’t see how this could get leaked?

    Happy New Year Lads

    I haven’t yet commented on the Liverpool game. But i think Tiote and Collocini were the best players for us on the night. Our wingers were woeful and as much as i like Jonas, he will only get 1 or 2 goals a season and Obertan will be lucky to get 1. Now surely 3 goals contributed from your wingers is not good enough.Go back in time to the likes of Solano, Robert, Ginola and many more, they were all getting at least 5 or 6 a season and that could be 10 more points. I seriously think that we need 2 wingers more than we need a centre half or centre forward. We are relying on Demba to much and the only other person on the pitch that can score is Cabaye or the man sitting on the bench, Ben Arfa. Vuckic looked over-weight to me and couldn’t keep up with the tempo.

    Santon, Ben Arfa, Tiote, Ba, Krul and Cabaye. That is 6 Top class players that all need to be playing in my opinion if we are to score goals and win games.

    Dannyo – a dont get how it gets leaked because our board dont set budgets they do it deal by deal if the right deal comes along they would do it they dont go to pardew and say look youve got such and such they ask for a list of players presumably he would also identify positions he feels are essential then the board will try to get players for them positions, obviously being wise they aint going to be spending ridiculous amounts but thats where the understanding comes from because Carr will be indentifying the players Pardew will look and right them down sort of thing

    Geordietoon i agree pardew decides what positions are needed carr identifies 4-5 players who fit the bill then pards decides which 1-2 out of them he likes best then where the process seems to fall down is when llambass is suppose to strike a deal to bring in at least 1 of them in n finally fat mike approbes it n signs it off

    Ye, seems Llambas and Charnley is the ones taking up all the time to get the deals done. Obviously they want it at the lowest price possible, and that can take allot of time. There’s probably a million back and forths on one deal, possibly even so low you insult the counterpart.
    If things go wrong, i expect it to be there. It’s not often we get the best deals possible, but it does happen, through players like Cabaye, Tiote and HBA.
    If they’re free it tends to go quicker. Marveux was fast, so was Ba.
    I don’t think it’s a matter of identifying targets, it’s more the part where we negotiate the various fees.

    19 games to play is max 57 pts. IF we get 28 that’s equal to another 8 wins 4 draws and 7 losses. Looking at the schedule while ACON s on we’ll be lucky to get a single win and a couple of draws as these sides are consolidating their form – Villa, Fulham, Spuds are all tough games – so we really do need to hit another spell of good form and some better luck to get anywhere near Europe.

    The test of a good manager is how they do when the team is in a bad run. Up to know I’ve been surprised at how well Pardew has done but he needs to get us back to taking 50% points up for grabs to have a successful season. It’s a numbers game…
