Newcastle Have Nothing To Lose Tonight

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014 · 11 Comments

Newcastle Could Sign This Dutch Defender In January

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014 · 16 Comments

It was revealed at the Fans Forum early last week that Newcastle had a central defender lined up as a replacement for Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa – but because the loan deal to Roma took so long for the Frenchman – that second deal couldn’t be completed –  and at the moment Newcastle have just three experienced central defenders in the squad.

Team Spirit A Huge Positive At Newcastle This Season

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014 · 56 Comments

At half-time on Sunday, we were not too happy and thinking that if we could keep the score down to 2-0 or 3-0 it would be a decent result given how Newcastle had been dominated in that first half by Spurs, and we had not been an  attacking threat at all and hadn’t even had a shot on target.
