My Feelings Are Very Good About Newcastle

Monday, September 2nd, 2013 · 287 Comments

Loic Remy seems to have settled down well at Newcastle, and although we had to wait almost four weeks to see the French International in action, he did finally get on for the last 15 minutes on Saturday against Fulham, and as far as we could see he’s going to be a big player for Newcastle this seoasn, and of course the other very positive news is not only did we play well towards the end of the game, but a phenomenal late Ben Arfa goal got us all 3 points too.

Newcastle Must Stop Acting Like Victims In Transfer Market

Monday, September 2nd, 2013 · 92 Comments

The Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew is still concerned that another club will come in with a late bid for French International Yohan Cabaye today, and of course if that happens and Mike Ashley accepts the bid, then we’ll be screwed, because there wont  be enough time left to bring in a suitable replacement. That’s in  essence why Alan Pardew is very worried today.   and also why he’s aged so much already this season. 😀
