News today that Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew will be trying to bring in an English style center-back in the January transfer window, after Newcastle shot themselves in the foot again on September 1st (what again?), when we allowed Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa to leave for a loan spell at Roma and didn’t replace him.

Increasing Pressure On Newcastle Could Have Consequences

Monday, October 6th, 2014 · 146 Comments

One of the real concerns we have at Newcastle this season, is the longer we stay near or in the relegation zone, the more difficult it will be to get out of it – and one reason for that is there is mounting pressure on the players in every game we do not win, and that makes it difficult for them to play at their best.
