Reports Newcastle To Play Fenerbahce In Pre-Season


There are reports coming out of Turkey that Newcastle could be playing the Instanbul based Turkey club, Fenerbahce,  in pre-season.


Linked with the reports of the game with Fenerbahce are that another possible match will be with with Polish side Wisla Krakow – and both games would be played in Vienna, the capital of Austria.

Newcastle have only so far announced three games as part of their pre-season, plus a game against Gateshead, where they will send a Newcastle eleven to play at the International Stadium.

DateTeamLocation
Fri 13 July KO 6;30 pm Chemnitzer FC - Lost 1-0Stadion an der Gellertstraße - Chermnitz, Germany
Mon 16 July KO 7:00 pm AS Monaco - Won 1-0Landsberg am Lech, Germany
Sat 21 July KO 7:30 pmFernerbahce - Drew 1-1 Sonnenseestadion, SC Ritzing, Austria
Fri 27 July KO 8:45 pmOlympiacos - Drew 1-1 4-4 on penalties Algarve Stadium, Faro, Portugal
Sat 28 July KO 8:45 pmFC Braga - won 2-1 Algarve Stadium, Faro, Portugal
Sat 4 August KO 5:00 pm Den Haag - Drew 0-0Kyocera Stadium, Den Haag
Tues 7 Aug KO 7:30 pmHartlepool - Won 5-1Victoria Park, Hartlepool
Sat 11 Aug 3:00 pmCardiff - Lost 4-1Cardiff City Stadium

But  Monaco and FC Chemnitzer have previously announced they will also be playing Newcastle in pre-season too, so we expect an announcement from Newcastle on their full pre-season schedule fairly shortly, once the full pre-season schedule is worked out:

  • July 13 – Friday – Chemnitzer FC at the Stadion an der Gellertstraße
  • July 16 – Monday – AS Monaco at Landsberg am Lech

Landsberg am Lech is a town in southwest Bavaria, Germany and Monaco will be playing  other games at that time in Germany.

We would expect these two games, if the reports are true, to be positioned after the two games in Germany and before Newcastle play in the Algarve tournament in Faro, Poutugal staring on 27th July.

    Tour of Europe!

    Boys gone wildthaynwoll be a great bonding experience especially if we have new players coming in.

    Germany, Austria and Portugal and against French, Polish, Turkish, German, Greek and Portugese competition. Perfect preparation for the Europa leauge.

    But unless i see a pictue of Alan inside ST
    James holding the fixture list high above his head whilst an nufc scarf is draped over his shoulders then I won’t believe it.

    Always liked Besty, played his part in the memorable 4-4 with Arsenal and he should do well in the championship next season. For me this is good news as we must have a striker or two lined up already.

    Whilst I quite like Best, imo he is reasonably easy to replace with a younger model. No disrespect to the guy, he’s done us well, but he isn’t going to push anyone out of the starting 11, so we should upgrade with a younger, hungrier player.

    Yeah, that’s right….I want a fatty!

    @ Indian

    What has that got to do with the price of cheese like, he has scored a decent amount for us in the premier league so by your reasoning he will do shit in the championship, think about it for more than 10 seconds please m8

    I actually think Leon Best will do a good job for Blackburn.

    He filled in when Carroll jumped ship & done a good job.

    Good luck to the lad…

    I hope Steve Kean brings Blackburn back up like.
    Them fans will be on his back from the first game for sure.

    The way he was treated by them at times last season was a disgrace.It was hard to watch..

    Doubt a striker as good as best can be brought for 2 million….two footed, good in the air and can hold up the ball.

    Lets just hope hes been able to go down as we have a certain someone on his way here..

    Leon Best has done a decent job for us but he was (IMO) nothing more than an insurance policy.

    U said it a few weeks ago that he, Willo, Simmo and routledge were bought during relegation as a safeguard against future relegation should that apply.

    Instead we stayed up and each (aside from routledge) was given a further season to prove themselves. IMO none have given us cause or case against to say that each could not he replaced by better to improve the team.

    Thanks to him for all his hard work and good luck

    Is there such a thing as players tapping up other players for their clubs ?, because it seems like we are trying to do it with Debuchy through Cabaye
