This Man Will Be Hugely Disappointed About Yesterday

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013 · 265 Comments

Mick Martin is another former Newcastle player who has commented on the vast disappointment felt by Newcastle fans, when the club failed to bring in a  top striker yesterday, and we needed one  desperately, and it’s more clear than ever that Mike Ashley doesn’t want to spend big money at Newcastle, which is exactly what the other Premier League clubs have been doing  this summer.

This Is The Player Newcastle Will Sign In Early January

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013 · 121 Comments

This situation we have today is very similar to when the transfer window ended two years ago,  when we failed to get in a  striker to replace Andy Carroll, and there was all hell to pay, even though we made some good signings that summer, including Yohan Cabaye, Demba Ba, Sylvain Marveaux and Davide Santon, and all for around £10M.

Lack Of Real Ambition Is Damaging The Newcastle United Brand

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013 · 36 Comments

Newcastle fans were told by Joe Kinnear that he would get rid of the players who were not good enough for Newcastle,  and then get in some players who were good enough. Well he did the first thing, but failed in his job to bring in reinforcements that Newcastle desperately needed.

And To Think Joe Kinnear Wanted To Be Judged On His Signings

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013 · 60 Comments

In our poll we ran after Joe Kinnear was appointed, which now has over 12,000 fans having voted,  a massive 89% did not want Joe Kinnear as the Director of Football, and that came even after Joe had told us he could pick up the phone and talk to any manager in the world, and after he said he would be an excellent Director of Football – but self praise is no recommendation.

This Is Simply A Disgrace For Newcastle United

Monday, September 2nd, 2013 · 333 Comments

Joe Kinnear has had almost 80 days to get a striker through the door to replace Demba Ba, who left in early January, but the only signing Joe made was a loan signing of Loic Remy from QPR for £2M, and that’s the only senior signing Newcastle have made in this summer’s transfer window, and it’s simply not good enough. In fact it’s a disgrace.
