Newcastle Player Simply Buzzing After Yesterday’s Win

Sunday, October 16th, 2016 · 108 Comments

Dwight Gayle cannot stop scoring goals at the moment and long may that continue as the Newcastle number 9 now has 9 goals to his name in the Championship and he’s the top scorer in the division.

In his last two home games Dwight has scored 5 goals so it’ s not too surprising he just loves playing at St. James’ Park in front of the Geordie fans.

And in the Chronicle today, Dwight has talked about how he gets encouragement from the fans wherever he is – including on the streets of Newcastle.

Newcastle Stay Second As Huddersfield Lose At Home

Sunday, October 16th, 2016 · 29 Comments

More good news for Newcastle today as Huddersfield lost 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday in today’s early kick-off Championship game and it was a Fernando Forestieri penalty after 68 minutes that won the game for The Owls.

That keeps Newcastle in second place and we are now just one point behind leaders Norwich in the league table as Huddersfield’s 100% home record comes to an end.

We have to win against Barnsley on Tuesday night and who knows we could be top of the league on Tuesday night for the first time this season

Shearer Has Coffee With Rafa – Manager’s Only Reasonably Happy

Sunday, October 16th, 2016 · 16 Comments

One thing you have to understand about Rafa Benitez is that he’s a perfectionist and if we win a game 7-1 he will be talking about how we could have done better in defending the goal we conceded.


So with that in mind Rafa has no limits on what Newcastle can do under his stewardship and he’s already said the main reason he wanted to stay on Tyneside was because of the fans and the fact he wants to win trophies at Newcastle.

🙂 🙂 🙂

Brentford Press – Newcastle Too Good For The Championship

Sunday, October 16th, 2016 · 10 Comments

The local Brentford press reporting on Newcastle’s 3-1 win yesterday at St. James’ Park said the Newcastle  team simply outclassed The Bees.

The report and comments on the GetWestLondon web-site were (very) complimentary to Newcastle who put in a good performance yesterday, especially in the first 25 minutes or so when we were 2-0 up and it looked like we could have scored a lot more goals.


Rafa Benitez – seemed happy enough
