Newcastle Announce Stunning New Benton Training Complex

4:50 pm, Saturday, November 30th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 297 Comments

Newcastle have today announced a stunning new state of the art complex to be built at the current Benton training center, and work will start on it in eighteen months time,  and it will take just over six months to complete and will be ready in early 2016.

This shows Newcastle do have ambition.

Fact.

Director of Football Joe Kinnear – will help attract players

Here is  a statement from the club today:

“Newcastle United Football Club have announced plans for a stunning new state-of-the-art training complex as part of a multi-million pound redevelopment of the club’s existing 35-acre training ground site.”

“The current intention is that work will get underway in May 2015 and when complete in early 2016, the Magpies will occupy one of the finest training facilities of its kind in Europe.”

“While existing training pitches and a modern indoor training hall will be retained, the club’s current Training Center building will be demolished and replaced by a much larger, high-tech structure.”

“It will accommodate newly-designed changing, training, rehabilitation, medical, leisure and catering facilities and will also introduce the latest aquatic technology to the site, with a 20-meter swimming pool, a hydrotherapy and fitness pool and specialist equipment to aid injury prevention and recovery.”

“The new construction will also create a fitness center double the size of the Club’s existing gymnasium, as well as administrative space, a presentation suite for match analysis and a new media suite.”

Newcastle Director of Football Joe Kinnear spoke of the significance of the new state of the art Newcastle training center:

“This is a hugely exciting development for Newcastle United. We have one of football’s great stadiums and we are delighted to now be announcing plans for a training complex which will rival any in Europe.”

“Top players and top teams need top training and medical facilities. Our current training ground has served the club very well but the new complex will give us all of the ingredients that we need to continue maintaining and enhancing the performance of elite footballers.”

“It will also be an added attraction when we are looking to recruit players.”

So after the training complex is complete, Newcastle will have one of the best stadiums and one of best training facilities of any club in Europe.

In short – that is fantastic.

Now we need to get into that Champions League.

    Good to see

  • 2 cyprus // Nov 30, 2013 at 4:53 PM

    This is midweek type of news Ed.

    The real news is the next game man.

  • 3 JAMSHA // Nov 30, 2013 at 4:54 PM

    OMG CNT WAIT

  • 4 yo-yo // Nov 30, 2013 at 4:57 PM

    3 pts would put us back in 5th ! Suspect it’s a win too far and have our bogey team down to get a draw. Hope I’m wrong

  • 5 toonking // Nov 30, 2013 at 4:59 PM

    PARDEW WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?????????

    I guess I was correct to question giving the captaincy back to colo last week.

    perhaps it is just jonas is out injured at the minute maybe he will be returning and place back into the starting 11.

    does pardew ever look at why England have such a mess in defence at the minute, colo is wanting to leave, mbiwa and willo have both shown what looks a very good partnership but what happens it gets messed up.

    this means just 1 thing I will not accept anything but a win and I want a clean sheet otherwise I will be a bit disappointed with pardew myself.

  • 6 Tsunki // Nov 30, 2013 at 4:59 PM

    They hope to have the Training Centre complete and ready for the first fully trained clowns to graduate in Mid 2015.

  • 7 Rotonda heights // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:00 PM

    God I wish we had Martinez. the guy is so so positive and his style of play is fantastic to watch.

    I’m trying to like Pardew especially after 3 wins on the bounce but dropping MYM stinks and is so predictable.
    Why can’t he just pick a team on merit. We desperately need pace at the back and MYM is impressing, playing for a WC place while Colo just wants to be away. Go figure!!

  • 8 Douglas // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:02 PM

    White Elephant.

  • 9 Tsunki // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:02 PM

    Got to agree Rotunda, the gulf in application, motivation, morale, you name it, between Mbiwa and Colo atm is huge. Demoralising.

  • 10 toonking // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:06 PM

    tsunki

    having seen colo return to the starting 11 I now think that tiote is just playing in the starting 11 himself because he was the starter most games and even if he had poor form would stay.

  • 11 Rotonda heights // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:07 PM

    Tsunki

    I guess it’s things like that which explains why Pardew has never really made a major breakthrough in management. It’s a totally senseless thing to do at a time when the confidence of MYM and Willo would have been sky high.

  • 12 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:09 PM

    Rotonda
    Agreed

  • 13 asenski // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:10 PM

    it seems pardew will never progress in the terms of dignity

  • 14 Tsunki // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:10 PM

    The only thing I can think of is Pardew may feel the CB’s have ridden all their luck?

  • 15 Graeme // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:12 PM

    Collo should be on the bench, at best, Tiote should have the arm band, Mbiwa should be on the pitch.

    All 3 choices based purely on MERIT!!

  • 16 Tsunki // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:13 PM

    Well lets see how it pans out.

  • 17 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:14 PM

    tbh all the pressure is on collo now if he messes up today he’ll be dropped and yanga gets his place back
    its in collos hands now
    i would’ve dropped santon and put mbwia at lb tbh i haven’t been that impressed with santon recently

  • 18 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:21 PM

    Manxpie
    You’d think but i don’t think colo would be dropped

    Have to say we have 3 specialist LB’s so why do people keep wanting a CB there? Especially one who’s been so dominant in the middle

  • 19 Rotonda heights // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:22 PM

    Willo is commanding in the air and MYM gives us the pace.
    Colo was and maybe still is a great player but not as a combo with Willo. Partnerships like Willo and MYM sometimes just click and you have to go with it until one of them loses form or gets injured.

    For Colo to come straight back in when all week he’s just been talking to the press about leaving sends a really appalling message, captain or not.

  • 20 Rotonda heights // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:24 PM

    If Long scores a couple today there’s no hiding place for Pardew

  • 21 Ketsbaia9 // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:24 PM

    Pardew out. He’s got his favourites (i.e. Shola, Tiote, Colo, Willo etc). There’s 4 players on that bench that should be starting and Marveaux should be ahead of Sammi and Obertan. It’s a joke. Pardew is mad.

  • 22 nufc7lad // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:25 PM

    51 goals in 297 games in the league

    Guess who -_-

  • 23 Rotonda heights // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:25 PM

    Graeme @15

    Spot on

  • 24 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:26 PM

    tads yeah we’ll see i suppose and on the lb thing santons looked quite dodgy recently and mbwia has still put in the best lb performance i’ve seen since we had enrique lol

  • 25 Himanshu Dhingra // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:27 PM

    NUFC7LAD

    10 of them in Championship

  • 26 valle // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:27 PM

    This is very harsh on Mbiwa… Captain crunch talks about leaving… Again. And still he walks straight into to the team to replace Mbiwa who have done so well in his place. Not only that, but I honestly believe that colo is becomming a liabillity when he plays.

  • 27 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:28 PM

    Wow did you see those stats for the toon with shola starting!

  • 28 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:30 PM

    Manx
    Aye he did but that’s one game in all honesty
    For me MYM has earned the right to start ahead of colo, dropping him sends a poor message tbh

  • 29 asenski // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:31 PM

    will we ever play like a home team at the first 10-15 min under Pardew at SJP?

  • 30 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:32 PM

    Krul don’t start lumping it this early in the game!

  • 33 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:35 PM

    yeah it is harsh but just think last season as soon the team sheet was read out how many arguments were on here at least we’re down to just 1 lol

  • 34 Ancientcoptic // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:35 PM

    Is it time to bring on Ben Arfa yet? lol

  • 35 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:37 PM

    Great stuff from Sissoko

  • 45 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:52 PM

  • 46 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:53 PM

    Thanks daz

  • 48 Ciaran // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:56 PM

    Impressed with Tiote I must say. Seems to have worked on his footwork and doesn’t seem to dawdle on it as much.

  • 49 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:57 PM

    Sissoko is a beast of a player

  • 50 asenski // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:58 PM

    can any1 tell me what kind of football we play

  • 51 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 5:59 PM

    Now that would have been an embarrassing goal to concede – Colo so weak in the air – can’t even beat players smaller than him.

  • 52 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:00 PM

    asenski, english the proper kind

  • 53 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:01 PM

    Gouffran is our best defender…

  • 54 Ciaran // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:01 PM

    Shola holding the ball up excellently again.

  • 55 Ciaran // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:02 PM

    Very harsh booking for Tiote

  • 56 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:02 PM

    Ffs dowd if your gonna book the lad at least do it in a challenge where he actually makes contact

  • 57 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:02 PM

    Ugly c**t ref.

  • 58 ilovetoon8788 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:03 PM

    Colo was once our best defender. How far he has fallen. Age perhaps.

  • 59 asenski // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:04 PM

    manxpie,
    tnanks i just forgot we have a proper coach to do so:)

  • 60 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:04 PM

    Nice turn from colo, hopefully a little confidence booster that gets him into the game

  • 61 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:05 PM

    Wow, Santon with end product!

  • 62 Graeme // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:06 PM

    fark me we scored from a corner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! first time in 3 season lol

  • 72 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:09 PM

    What the hell is Colo doing chasing that ball onto the RW? Actions like that are potentially very costly and downright careless, if West Brom selected the right passes, they were in.

  • 73 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:10 PM

    benj 1st time in a week don’t ya mean?

  • 74 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:10 PM

    Benji
    Ummmmm Norwich last week…..

  • 75 Ciaran // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:10 PM

    Benji

    2nd time, we scored from a corner last week ;)

  • 76 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:10 PM

    How the heck is that not a card? Make this shite up as they go along.

  • 77 Benji84 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:11 PM

    oh yeah thats right lol

  • 78 Benji84 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:12 PM

    See if we can push hard now and get a second

  • 79 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:13 PM

    Need a second while were on top

  • 80 Benji84 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:14 PM

    how many corners did we have before we scored last week?

  • 81 Ciaran // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:15 PM

    Anyone else think that Colo doesn’t look comfortable? Seems hesitant, has misplaced a few passes etc

  • 82 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:16 PM

    Phil Dowd is an ugly turd.

  • 83 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:17 PM

    Phil Dowd you fat c**t

  • 84 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:18 PM

    …anybody have a stable good quality link?

  • 87 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:19 PM

    Should 1-0 against 10 men, how many calls can the refs f**k up this season

  • 88 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:19 PM

    Is it me, or Remy is selfish?

  • 89 ilovetoon8788 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:21 PM

    http://www.nutjob.eu/ss1tv.html

    try this

  • 90 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:21 PM

    A good stream is on Acestream.

    http://www.wiziwig.tv/broadcast.php?matchid=226995&part=sports

    SkySports 1 [EN] Is nice quality and fast working.

    Bloodzeed [EN] Is better, but slower, more quality, more upload needed.

    Also there are Sopcast links there.

  • 91 Benji84 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:22 PM

    yeah remy is a bit selfish but to be honest most strikers are. The big issue is if the don’t score goals from that selfishness

  • 92 colwell // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:22 PM

    FFS Remy why go down a tiny pull on your shirt but you were through?

    Hopefully that was our poor half

  • 93 TheToonKing // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:23 PM

    I swear…this Phil Dowd…always screws us. Olsson should be off.

  • 94 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:23 PM

    Only weakness that half was Colo’s aerial ability and his misadventure with his passing.

    Feeling the pressure of knowing he has to prove himself, because on merit, doesn’t belong in the team.

  • 95 Blofal // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:24 PM

    Oleg today is an improvement. Remy is normally quite greedy. But then a lot of strikers are.

  • 96 Himanshu Dhingra // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:24 PM

    FFS Please take Ameobi Off, I know he played well last week but he has been crap.

  • 97 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:26 PM

    shock of the half for me was willo doin a cheeky lob out to debuchy from in the box wat a change this guy has made

  • 98 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:27 PM

    Blofal // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:24 PM

    Previous game he didn’t pass for two 100% goals. So far I didn’t see him in such situations where he can give that kind of pass, but didn’t. But, I did see him once or twice already looking for the shot when there is a better option of passing the ball and continuing the play is possible.

  • 99 Ciaran // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:27 PM

    HD

    You must have been watching a different game. Ameobi’s hold up play has been superb and it was his challenge on the keeper which led to the goal. Unless you can back up your BS opinions with fact, do keep your mouth shut.

  • 100 TheToonKing // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:27 PM

    @Himanshu Dhingra

    Ameobi is good so far. Without his run on the corner we would have no goal.

  • 101 nufc7lad // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:28 PM

    With Cabaye and Sissoko both a yellow away from suspension, these subs should be made

    60 mins: Ben Arfa for Ameobi
    70 mins: cisse for sissoko
    80 mins: Anita for Cabaye

  • 102 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:28 PM

    Himanshu

    No he hasn’t, unless you’re watching the match through a prism of prejudice. He’s done very well.

  • 103 Benji84 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:28 PM

    jamie you are so bloody boring get some excitement lad

  • 104 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:28 PM

    Himanshu Dhingra // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:24 PM

    He created the option for the goal. Good enough then.

    He will be off after 60-70 mins.

  • 105 nufc7lad // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:28 PM

    41 goals in 273.5 premier league games

    -_- guess who

  • 106 Big Pappa Cissé // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:29 PM

    Their Cb’s turn like Ships but are good in the air . I would take Shola off in 10 minutes and let HBA’s fresh legs run at them .

    HWTL .

  • 107 pottsclock // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:29 PM

    Ameobi has been very good again. His movement made the goal.
    H won’t last the 90 and we’ll see Benny in his place. Quite looking forward to Benny running at this defense becuase they look nervous when pressed.

  • 108 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:29 PM

    Remy’s reaction has nothing to do with the pulling of the shirt. It looks fake. It was a foul, but Remy’s acting is bad. No Oscar there.

  • 109 asenski // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:30 PM

    please pardew ..just do not kill the second part as usual

  • 110 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:30 PM

    Thanks guys :)

    …I’ll check ‘em out!

  • 111 Mister Tuff // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:30 PM

    Very cagey game – we are just shading it. We need another goal as it’s the type of game anything can happen. There are a group of refs -Phil Dowd/Mike Dean etc who are really very poor – know the rules but don’t know the game.
    I guess it might be an edge of the seat job in the second half.

  • 112 colwell // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:31 PM

    Much much prefer Shola up top than Cisse, Shola’s hold up play is what we had been missing for so long, brings so many in to play.

    Also notices how much Shola has tracked back putting in much more effort than Remy.

  • 113 Rotonda heights // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:31 PM

    himanshu

    very harsh on shola. I think in his twilight days he is emerging as a very wily campaigner

  • 114 Himanshu Dhingra // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:31 PM

    It is my opinion

    and he has been crap

  • 115 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:31 PM

    dowd bottled it simple as that otherwise it would’ve been a yellow for remy
    he knew he’d have to show the red card so bottled it
    the pressure on referees at the minute certainly ain’t helping the decisions in any games

  • 116 ilovetoon8788 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:31 PM

    I think if Remy hadn’t fell like that, and fell naturally it would have been a red for olsson.

  • 117 asenski // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:31 PM

    and don’t bring gutierez instread of ben arfa when you sub shola at the 65-70th min

  • 118 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:32 PM

    HD
    Without his run across the keeper it would still be 0-0 and he’s holding the ball up very well

    Colwel
    Doesn’t matter how hard/soft his shirt was pulled its a foul, it’s the last man and it’s a red card

  • 119 DG MAGPIE // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:32 PM

    Best place for links is footballstreaming.info
    You will normally get 6+ links per game. So if one doesn’t work or crashes you can pick another

  • 120 colwell // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:33 PM

    Remy didn’t need to fall he was through no way did that little shirt tug make he go over.

    Ameobi has been brilliant again. His leap on the corner blocked off the goal keeperwhich set up the goal & passing has beeen great.

    Willo has been solid again.

    Colo, back to old form.

    Tiote back to old form (along with the cards)

    All we need now is for Obertan to come on and score a hat trick & the haters will be thoroughly Pissed (especially with Ben Arfa sitting on the sidelines)

  • 125 yo-yo // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:34 PM

    Need to up the tempo – they are there for the taking provided we keep solid at the back

  • 126 theartfuldodger // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:34 PM

    I think we need another goal to win this.

  • 127 Ancientcoptic // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:35 PM

    Remy’s movement has been fantastic.

    What I do not understand about Ameobi is why he works harder when we do not have the ball, as opposed to when we do have it.

    He seems to drop down a gear once we are in possession.

  • 128 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:35 PM

    We do look better with a big physical guys up front when playing 4-4-2, but to be honest Shola has been rather indifferent for most of this fist half.

    …Hope Pardew can get him more into the game in the second half ot maybe change it and bring someone else on.

  • 129 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:36 PM

    Manx
    Agreed he’s bottled it massively, if he didn’t think it was a foul the remy would of been booked for diving

    We need to attack this 2nd half, we need a second goal

  • 130 bills-son // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:36 PM

    We’ve played the ball around very well at the back and Tiote and Cabaye are working their socks off giving the defenders passing options.

    I agree that this might be an ideal defence to bring HBA on against after an hour.

  • 131 Benji84 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:37 PM

    with remy and it should be a penalty this ref only gave a yellow last week when a defender went through a liverpool player studs up around the knee. Quality ref!

  • 132 nufc7lad // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:37 PM

    @Manxpie

    That is a result of more factors than just amoeba playing. His goal record is shit

  • 133 Himanshu Dhingra // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:37 PM

    NUFC Corners and London Buses

  • 134 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:37 PM

    Seriously shola has had a great half, people bashing him are doing it for no other reason than they perceive him as sh*t so therefore he must be

  • 135 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:38 PM

    Come on then lads,let’s get an early one in this half

  • 136 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:39 PM

    Shola doing his job superbly again. If any of our strikers have been off the boil so far today, it’s his partner.

  • 137 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:39 PM

    nufc7lad
    So? He’s doing the job he ‘a been asked to do
    Btw another great ball there from shola unlucky remy

  • 138 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:39 PM

    There ye go,Shola doin great

  • 139 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:40 PM

    aye tads lets hope he at least evens up the yellow cards this half
    great ball by shola again!

  • 140 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:40 PM

    Sissoko could be a fantastic player if he just fine tunes his passing

  • 141 jimmysmith // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:41 PM

    Its been a bit run of the mill. Still, 1-0 up, and looking lovely placed on the ‘as things stand’ table. So shouldn’t grumble…..,”grumble,grumble,……..grumble, grumble, grumble.”

  • 142 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:41 PM

    There’s another example.

  • 143 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:42 PM

    Phew wide open at the back there
    Once again though on the counter ANOTHER great knock from shola

  • 144 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:43 PM

    Awful defending there

  • 145 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:43 PM

    Gonna get some rom now as they’ll have to attack,so hopefully we’ll get the next goal

  • 146 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:43 PM

    SHIZA

  • 147 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:43 PM

    Bloody great!

    How can we suddenly become so ragged at the back!?

    Infuriating! GRRR!

  • 148 toonbrother // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:44 PM

    lol

  • 149 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:44 PM

    Wtf was colo at LB? No need we had players over it forced the whole backline to drop over a player ffs

  • 150 jeff // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:45 PM

    get ben arfa onto ridgewell

  • 151 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:45 PM

    Think the team have just realised they’re gonna have to fight for this. They was even slacking then, until another emergency was looking likely.

  • 152 Ciaran // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:45 PM

    Santon in the wrong position to block the cross, Williamson and Debuchy caught ball watching when it comes into the box. Shocking defending.

  • 153 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:45 PM

    Horrible defending. Wow. Shocking how easy we gave them that.
    We are not dominating enough at home. Not scoring enough. Too bad.

    Well, lets hope we will come back from this.

  • 154 Brutooon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:45 PM

    play collocini the last two games = we start to concede!!!!!!!

    Yanga Mbiawa keep us clean sheets

  • 155 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:46 PM

    Colo strays all the time. I noted a first-half instance when he went chasing the ball onto the RW.

  • 156 ilovetoon8788 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:46 PM

    West Brom playing very well now..

  • 157 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:47 PM

    Also, what happened to the fans? No sounds most of the game from that bunch.

  • 158 Ibizatoon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:47 PM

    Okay, for people who are stuck on the whole why Benny doesn’t play etc. What Gouffran just did is one of the main reasons imo. This team needs players to drop back and help out the defense.

    I’m not saying it’s right, but it is needed at the minute.

    Really impressed with Gouffran this season.

    Now boys, sort yourselves out and get another goal.

  • 159 colwell // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:47 PM

    Get in there!

    :D

  • 162 ilovetoon8788 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:47 PM

    A freaking missile from the beast!!

  • 163 Ibizatoon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:47 PM

    Saying that…I am aware, that if perhaps Benny was playing, he may well do more damage at the other end of the pitch.

  • 164 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:47 PM

    Sissoko,what a goal you beauty

  • 165 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:47 PM

    Great knock from Remy and another f**king brilliant counter !

    What a beautiful quick attack and WHAT A GOAL BY SISSOKO!!!!

  • 171 Ancientcoptic // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:48 PM

    Beast! what else can you say.

  • 172 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:49 PM

    Ok. If we are letting them score again and equalize, we are idiots.

  • 173 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:49 PM

    Cabaye needs to up his game.

  • 174 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:49 PM

    Ibiza
    Great team talk ;)

  • 175 Benji84 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:49 PM

    and thats an assist to remy well done

  • 176 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:49 PM

    And thank you Remy for not being selfish there.

  • 177 ilovetoon8788 // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:49 PM

    The ball probably flew in at 200miles/hr

  • 178 Ibizatoon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:50 PM

    tads…Just what I was thinking mate :)

  • 179 Ben3arfa // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:50 PM

    I can see Tiote getting himself sent off, Anita would ideally come on for him shortly

  • 180 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:50 PM

    :lol:

    Nice one Santon, cannoned off his face.

  • 181 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:50 PM

    haha. Nice by Santon there to win the ball.

  • 182 JAMSHA // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:51 PM

  • 186 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:53 PM

    “Right lads we need to score”
    “Yep that’s the one”

  • 187 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:53 PM

    Unlucky Remy, pile driver!

  • 188 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:54 PM

    Shola is a great foil for Remy. The latter not making the most of his chances so far.

  • 189 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:54 PM

    What are these obvious hoof balls into the box? Such lack of creativity. These balls are bringing nothing 99% of the time. Play the ball, pass it around, make them run and get tired, pressure them back.

  • 190 Ciaran // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:54 PM

    Ameobi is having a very good game, Remy seems to thrive playing off a big centre forward.

  • 191 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:54 PM

    Great to hear Debuchy getting some love from the stands

  • 192 davis_toons // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:55 PM

    Shola is unselfish and tag along well with any striker.

  • 193 Ibizatoon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:56 PM

    tads…Managers over complicate things.

    I say throw all the players names in a hat, pick 11, send those players on the field, tell them to score and not concede.

    Easy stuff really.

    Ashley, are you paying me by cheque, bank transfer or PayPal?

  • 194 pottsclock // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:56 PM

    Long is just falling over all the time for free kicks

  • 195 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:56 PM

  • 197 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:56 PM

    ibiza to many fans watch the spanish league imo and expect to see the same in the prem
    the prem is the best because of the effort,pace and end to end stuff that you see
    that requires 100% for 90mins and thats why players get found out

  • 198 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:56 PM

    Tiote has even cut out doing that first-time blind big swinger into the box.

  • 199 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:57 PM

    Ibiza
    You’ll be nailed on as a fan favourite with thinking like that as long as 10 of the 11 names are HBA

  • 200 Ibizatoon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:58 PM

    manxpie…Have to say I rarely watch la liga. Beautiful stuff and all, but I do find myself really bored by it.

    Must make me a football philistine :)

  • 201 Ron Knee // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:58 PM

    So much for my prediction of 1-1.

  • 202 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:59 PM

    Looks like Shola is going to make the 70 minute mark!
    Faye thank you!

  • 203 Ibizatoon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:59 PM

    tads…I’m not sure the maths is right there. I’ll check with Kinnear, he’s a clued in bloke.

    Also, on Shola. Hodgson must be kicking himself that the big lad was called up by Nigeria…

  • 204 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 6:59 PM

    Remy doesn’t really like to pass the ball to his team mates

  • 205 pottsclock // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:00 PM

  • 208 Ciaran // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:03 PM

    Appreciating the possession football that we’re playing now, looks much more confident than last weekend’s second half

  • 209 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:03 PM

    Players don’t get enough oxygen at this stage. Tiote dancing with the ball in the back, Sissoko passing the ball without looking, players slipping, falling without a reason.

    Time for fresh legs.

    What I don’t get is, why these players don’t have the stamina for a full 90 mins game at this pace. I mean, they are doing this for years. But some of them are just not up for it for some reason.

    And the ref doesn’t get any oxygen since the first minute of the game. Brainless.

  • 210 jimmysmith // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:03 PM

    I’m really proud of myself for sticking with Shola, even if at times I suspected I was stupid as mud for doing so. Oh, but not now, oh no, no such misgivings. Shola, you are the veritable shit my friend.

  • 211 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:04 PM

    lol ibiza yep that you are
    but you were spot on with the gouff incedent

    this ref is seriously pissin me off how was that not a yellow!!

  • 212 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:04 PM

    If this lad is the good amalfitano I’m not hold my breath over his brother like

    Have to say santon tiote and cabs have had some lovely interplay today

  • 213 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:05 PM

    Our players definitely look stronger and better conditioned.

    Think that missed header from Shola should signal his exit, like that shot last week. Another great shift from the big chap, so far.

  • 214 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:06 PM

    Unlucky debuchy lad

  • 215 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:06 PM

    Against a team like WBA, I feel that HBA would do we now. We need to hold the ball and open the field. His ball control and ability to see two steps forward, can do that.

    We should be looking for the 3-1, not holding the 2-1.

  • 216 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:06 PM

    That was suppose to be the 3-1. Come on. argh!!!!

  • 217 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:07 PM

    tads to see tiote pass then quickly move into space is the absolute polar opposite to last season!
    great to see

  • 218 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:07 PM

    Wow there going for 3 CF’s, shaky last 10??
    Anichibe loves to score against us :(

  • 219 Ibizatoon // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:07 PM

    Manx…Ref has been really poor.

  • 220 Ancientcoptic // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:08 PM

    Oh nooooo here comes Anichebe.

  • 221 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:08 PM

    Oleg
    In all fairness were still attacking don’t think it can be said were holding for a 2-1

  • 222 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:08 PM

    The fans at SJP are pissing me off.
    So freaking quiet. Make some noise!

    We can get some noise only if we score a goal or are playing against the scum? Somebody should tell them that we are playing against the unwashed. Maybe they will wake up.

  • 223 Ibizatoon // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:09 PM

    Right…time to earn that money.

    Lads, heads up, don’t concede, score more goals. There’s only 13 odd minutes.

  • 224 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:09 PM

    Shola’s even doing step overs now, I’m just nipping to the kitchen to see if water is still wet

  • 225 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:10 PM

    Dowd your an inconsistent w*nker ffs

  • 226 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:11 PM

    toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:08 PM

    We are attacking. But we don’t have a feeling of urgency about it. Passes became poor again. We are giving the ball away too easy.

    I hope WBA won’t wake up. But we are not eliminating them by holding the ball in the last third more, and making them defend all the way. The game is a bit less than balanced.

    Look, Sissoko took the ball, going forward, but no one is running behind to help.

  • 227 Benji84 // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:11 PM

    i heard a stat last week that we have not scored more than 2 goals in a while so lets see if nip a third

  • 228 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:11 PM

    Lot of tired legs out there for us,need Shola off I think

  • 229 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:11 PM

    Anita for shola, get control of the midfield

  • 230 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:12 PM

    Just attack for pete’s sake, or we’ll just end up inflicting our own misery.

  • 231 Yohan Kebab // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:13 PM

    would have kept another clean sheet with mbiwa ;)

  • 232 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:13 PM

    Oleg
    If WBA are waking up as you say then HBA coming on would be a disaster

  • 233 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:13 PM

    Here comes Anita for Remy,not bad

  • 234 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:14 PM

    Anita is up.

  • 235 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:14 PM

    Remy has been average today, quite wasteful. Working harder off the ball this second-half, though.

  • 236 asenski // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:14 PM

    oh our attack is over with this sub

  • 237 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:15 PM

    toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:13 PM

    That is 100% true.

    I said that about HBA 13 mins ago, when we were looking in control and I was hoping we won’t let WBA attack as much as they do.

    Luckily for us, they are horrible when attacking. But we should not be relying on other teams lack of quality.

  • 238 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:16 PM

    Shola is staying on for the set-piece threat, it seems. Probably have to stretcher him off he’s still there at the full-time whistle :)

  • 239 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:16 PM

    Goofy is amazing. Such a hard worker. Gives 100% every game. His covering back, has been a big plus for us.

  • 240 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:17 PM

    Oleg
    Yeah agree with that

  • 241 asenski // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:17 PM

    how come are we never playing like a home team the first and the last 10 mins every game at SJP

  • 242 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:17 PM

    This’ll definitely means HBA starts against Swansea.

  • 243 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:17 PM

    Goofy MOTM for me

  • 244 jimmysmith // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:18 PM

    ameobi MOM!!!

  • 264 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:26 PM

    What is that Sub for???

    Disrespect for Cisse and HBA.

  • 265 Ciaran // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:26 PM

    2 best players for Newcastle today – Shola Ameobi and Mike Williamson. Superb performance lads, well done.

  • 266 jeff // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:26 PM

    cisse MotM

  • 267 ~Anita One Bites The Dust~ // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:26 PM

    Cisse. Man of the match.

    In all seriousness… three MoTM performances by Ameobi (including Nigeria vs Italy)

    Doubt anyone could have predicted this.

  • 268 Ancientcoptic // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    I wonder who is going to win manager of the month.

  • 269 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    Nice one :-)
    4 wins in a row

  • 270 toonarmydownsouth // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    Wow just wow
    Goofy Debuchy Willo the tank Tiote Cabaye Sissoko Shola all simply fantastic

  • 271 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    Fantastic win! Jittery! We don’t make it easy for ourselves, but these performances are reminiscent of our 5th season.

    MOM candidates – Willo, Debuchy, Gouffran, Sissoko and Shola, but think I’d have to lump for Willo. Looks our best CB which is testament to his character – warrior.

  • 272 wolfshead@toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    lol jeff

  • 273 Ibizatoon // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:28 PM

    Battled well today. 4th win in a row.

    This club aye!

    Have a good night lads.

  • 274 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:28 PM

    Goofy best player for me.

    Not only because of the goal. But because of his work ethics. We can play better than this. We won. But we should be killing them I think. this game should’ve ended 4-0. Not 2-1.

    And again. I feel really bad for HBA and Cisse there. Coming as subs for the last 5 secs of the game as if they are some academy players. Very disrespectful by AP.

  • 275 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:28 PM

    Nice with the three points!

    …definitely going to be some interesting games on tomorrow :)

  • 276 Marty-Toon // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:28 PM

    Joe Kinnear is said to be happy as Shola is another one of HIS signings ;-)

  • 277 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:28 PM

    Loved how energized by the crowd Cabaye was towards the end.

    The spirit shown makes me proud to support them!

  • 278 yo-yo // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:28 PM

    Shola or Willo either cud have been our MoM …..
    Who’d ever have thought it ?

  • 279 Spahndirge // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:29 PM

    Gouffran, I f-king love you!

  • 280 yo-yo // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:29 PM

    Oleg

    Yeh Goofy is still improving

  • 281 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:29 PM

    bloody hell 7 points clear of 10th wat a result

  • 282 JAMSHA // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:32 PM

    watched the match on my xperia last 4 min WILLO WAS SOLID… GIVE THIS LAD A NEW CONTRACT

  • 283 curmon // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:32 PM

    Ref was terrible, inconsistent and biased. Let big decisions go and penalised every niggly foul. PL should have a better standard of refereeing than this

  • 284 MosesNUFC // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:32 PM

    A well deserved, battled win today. A very tough side in west brom, who setup well against us. Ameobi MOTM for me. A bit nerve racking when we sat back towards the end, I thought Ben Arfa should have been brought on as a second striker to try and get us that 3rd goal and bring some flair. 5th in the league now, Pardew for manager of the month! Onwards and upwards HTL!

  • 285 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:32 PM

    Shola has been instrumental in nearly every chance we’ve created these last few games. If not with the final ball/flick-on/knock-down, then in providing a great platform and laying it off to the wings, like in the build up to Remy’s missed header in the 1st half.

    A new lease of life.

  • 286 yo-yo // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:32 PM

    Only 17 pts from safety. Bet Pardew is relieved

  • 287 Graeme // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:32 PM

    That was a superb game of footy, delightful result, despite the very sloppy goal we gave away. Thoroughly deserved the win and now the TOOOOOOOOON are in 5th – at least for today lol

  • 288 lukes26 // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:33 PM

    the only player I can criticize is Sissoko for not tracking back to defend…..but he scored

    amazing preformance in first half…second half was mostly about defending, which they did effectively, just doesnt make the casual fan very happy to watch

  • 289 NUFCarter // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:33 PM

    only caught the last 10 mins, but from those 10 mins Williamson is my MOTM

  • 290 Benji84 // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:33 PM

    big question can we win the next two?

  • 291 pottsclock // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:34 PM

    The team look much better conditioned. I would just be nice for Shola to see him score. He’d get some reception at the moment if he did.

  • 292 ilovetoon8788 // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:34 PM

    The entire team is benefitting from Shola’s power upfront.

    God, it took him 15 years to realise this.

    Man of the match Shola. Excellent today. Brilliant hold up play.

  • 293 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:35 PM

    Ref took away so much from us today.

    A yellow\red card. A second yellow I think.
    A pen in the end there.

  • 294 Ted Bundy // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:35 PM

    HBA fanboys will get their wish on Wednesday, no way can Shola do 90 and then start midweek and I can’t see Cisse partnering Remy. Should be the perfect opportunity for him, against what will be a slightly weary defence, our match being the 3rd of 3 in quick succession.

    Wrap Shola up and let him bump and bruise Man Utd’s defence.

  • 295 manxpie // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:36 PM

    shola was immense tbh even when he had 2 on him he showed skill and left them for dead unbelievable really
    makes me wonder if he had this kind of love and confidence earlier in his career wat could have been?

  • 296 Oleg G // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:36 PM

    Swansea is winnable, but so difficult. Man U, unknown. 3-4 points out of those games would be great. less than 2 points, would be disappointing.

  • 297 NUFCarter // Nov 30, 2013 at 7:37 PM

    Lets not forget west Brom are a good team away and really beat Chelsea at stamford bridge if it weren’t for that ‘penalty’. Shame i missed most of the match.
