Is Alan Pardew Going For Broke In The Ukraine?

February 18th, 2013 · 8 Comments

We had wondered what team Alan Pardew would play in the return leg at Metalist Kharkiv on Thursday night, and we suppose with only drawing 0-0 at home last Thursday he will be tempted to play a strong side, but that could weaken our team for the league game on Sunday at home to Southampton […]

Magpies’ Star Confident Of Success In The Ukraine

February 16th, 2013 · 30 Comments

It’s always useful to look at the betting on anything – because that’s where the money lies, and usually the bookies get things right – otherwise they wouldn’t be able to make a living and the odds on Metalist winning next Thursday night are 6/7 odds on, and Newcastle are 12/5. Yohan Cabaye – after […]

Still A Sense Of Injustice At Newcastle

February 16th, 2013 · 8 Comments

It was a frustrating game on Thursday night both for the fans and the players, and we just couldn’t score to get ourselves ahead in the tie, although we did seem to score two perfectly good goals from Papiss Cisse, which were both denied by a Norwegian linesman – and that’s the big talking point […]

Can Newcastle Make It Through Next Thursday Night?

February 16th, 2013 · 8 Comments

A score draw next Thursday night in the Ukraine against Metalist Kharkiv will see Newcastle go through to the round of the last 16 of the Europa League, but we’re not sure how strong a side Alan Pardew can field in the second leg, because we have a game just four days later in the […]

Papiss Cisse Will Come Good Again

February 16th, 2013 · 3 Comments

There seems to be a nice partnership developing between new boy Moussa Sissoko and Papiss Cisse, and that could be seen on Thursday evening when both players combined well and Moussa set up Papiss with a number of chances. Papiss Cisse – in action on Thursday night

I Can’t Fault Our Side – It’s All To Play For Now

February 15th, 2013 · 123 Comments

Sometimes things go for you in a game and sometimes they don’t – and the latter was what happened to Newcastle last night against a good Metalist Kharkiv side, but manager Alan Pardew still thinks we have a decent chance to go through in the second leg next Thursday night in the Ukraine. Alan Pardew […]

We Can Win It Next Week – Papiss Cisse

February 15th, 2013 · 93 Comments

This photo below just about sums up how frustrated Papiss Cisse must have been last night after having two good goals disallowed, and then having other efforts saved by the goalkeeper – and one was a header with just 20 seconds to go in injury time. Papiss Cisse – frustrated last night – who can […]

Frustration In Newcastle Camp – It Will Be Harder Next Week

February 15th, 2013 · 17 Comments

Tim Krul had a good game last night, as did the Newcastle defense, and we looked well organized and solid, and when Metalist did get some chances Tim Krul made the saves, with his best save being in the first half when he brilliantly clawed away a goal bound header from Cleiton Xavier. Tim Krul pointing – we were unlucky and should have won

No Problems With Papiss Cisse Form

February 15th, 2013 · 13 Comments

Papiss Cisse had two goals disallowed last night, and on three other occasions he went close,  but each time hit the goalkeeper – but one of these days Cisse will score a goal for each of the chances he gets in games, like he was doing a year ago, and the real key for a […]
