Newcastle Just Don’t Learn From Their Mistakes

Monday, May 18th, 2015 · 9 Comments

In life people make mistakes because we are all human (damn it), but people usually learn from their mistakes and when they do that they can move on and do bigger and better things.

However, for those who don’t learn from their mistakes,  they keep making them and that’s why history keeps repeating itself, so it may not be too surprising in that context that Newcastle will probably be relegated again six years after the last time we took the big drop – but this time it’s even worse because the club made multiple serious errors in the last six months that has brough about this shambles.

Why Top Coaches Will Reject Newcastle This Summer

Monday, May 18th, 2015 · 169 Comments

There was news in the Chronicle today that Remi Garde has cooled his interest in the Newcastle job – and that probably means he wouldn’t take the Newcastle job if it was offered to him – assuming we are still a Premier League club next Sunday.

This Dutch Striker Could Arrive At Newcastle This Summer

Monday, May 18th, 2015 · 17 Comments

Newcastle have been linked with Luc Castaignos since the summer of 2012 when he was still at Inter-Milan – so it’s not too surprising that we would be after him this summer, since Newcastle need to bring in at least two strikers – we should have brought in one last summer, and then we wouldn’t be having the trouble we are at the moment in scoring goals.

Newcastle Already Planning For The Summer

Monday, May 18th, 2015 · 146 Comments

If Newcastle do survive in the Premier League next Sunday,  because Hull City cannot beat Manchester United at home, there will be a post-mortem held immediately on what went wrong this year.

And with so much going wrong that may take some time to complete – but one problem at the club is there is too much of a clique at Newcastle, with people who are unqualified being appointed to important positions in the club – and that’s why we are where we are today.

Why Newcastle Are Now In Very Serious Trouble

Monday, May 18th, 2015 · 16 Comments

Newcastle have been so poor this year since Alan Pardew left, that it simply belies belief, and when we won at the end of February at home to Villa that was a very good 3 points, and it took us to 35 points from 27 games played, and we needed just one more win to be safe – so although we weren’t exactly doing great, there seemed no real problems.
