This Dutch Striker Could Arrive At Newcastle This Summer

Monday, May 18th, 2015 · 17 Comments

Newcastle have been linked with Luc Castaignos since the summer of 2012 when he was still at Inter-Milan – so it’s not too surprising that we would be after him this summer, since Newcastle need to bring in at least two strikers – we should have brought in one last summer, and then we wouldn’t be having the trouble we are at the moment in scoring goals.

Newcastle Already Planning For The Summer

Monday, May 18th, 2015 · 146 Comments

If Newcastle do survive in the Premier League next Sunday,  because Hull City cannot beat Manchester United at home, there will be a post-mortem held immediately on what went wrong this year.

And with so much going wrong that may take some time to complete – but one problem at the club is there is too much of a clique at Newcastle, with people who are unqualified being appointed to important positions in the club – and that’s why we are where we are today.

Why Ashley Will Not Sell Newcastle If Relegated

We read with interest the piece from former Chairman Freddy Shepherd yesterday, when he gave an interview to the BBC and said he thinks that Mike Ashley will sell up and leave if Newcastle are relegated on Sunday.

Why Newcastle Are Now In Very Serious Trouble

Monday, May 18th, 2015 · 16 Comments

Newcastle have been so poor this year since Alan Pardew left, that it simply belies belief, and when we won at the end of February at home to Villa that was a very good 3 points, and it took us to 35 points from 27 games played, and we needed just one more win to be safe – so although we weren’t exactly doing great, there seemed no real problems.

Players In Turmoil – No Confidence – Ask For Support On Sunday

Sunday, May 17th, 2015 · 64 Comments

Ryan Taylor has admitted that when Alan Pardew left the club so quickly at the beginning of January – he couldn’t get out quickly enough – it had an effect on the players and they were not sure who was going to be in charge – and then later in January John Carver was put in charge through the end of the season.

Newcastle Will Not Win On Sunday – Here’s Why

Sunday, May 17th, 2015 · 22 Comments

We’d love to see Newcastle United save themselves with a win against West Ham in the last game of the season on Saturday, but that will not happen and there’s a number of reasons for that, but the main ones are the head coach is completely under water and doesn’t know what to do,  so he tells his players not to watch TV or read the papers this week – or some nonsense like that.

Maybe he should let them read all the papers, so they can see the negative reaction to their pathetic, heartless and gutless second half performance yesterday, when a lot of our players gave good impressions of  being wimps.

Don’t they have any pride in their performance?
