England Win 4-0 – Go Top Of Group – France Draw

Friday, September 6th, 2013 · 8 Comments

England had an easy win tonight at Wembley Stadium when they strolled through the game with Moldova and won 4-0, although the score could have and probably should have been  higher,  and with almost last kick of the game – former Newcastle winger James Milner somehow managed to put the ball over the bar with an open goal in front of him from just five yards out.

These Are The Players Newcastle Should Have Signed This Summer

Friday, September 6th, 2013 · 64 Comments

The vast majority of fans were disappointed that Newcastle didn’t get one senior player into the club over the summer on a permanent basis, and all we could manage was Loic Remy on a season long loan deal, and that just wasn’t good enough.

Could This Be Why Newcastle Didn’t Go After Tom Ince?

Friday, September 6th, 2013 · 152 Comments

We have an idea why Newcastle didn’t pursue 21 year-old Tom Ince of Blackpool too much in the summer, and that’s because we already have Sammy Ameobi at the club,  and Sammy is probably at the same level as Tom, although he hasn’t played as many first team games as the son of former Manchester United great  Paul Ince, and maybe that points to a problem at Newcastle.

Is This Player Newcastle’s Top Youngster?

Friday, September 6th, 2013 · 40 Comments

North Shields born Adam Campbell doesn’t turn 19 until January 1st, but he is one of Newcastle’s most promising players, and the England U20 striker could well be sent out on loan again after the abortive two weeks he had at Carlisle where he hardly played – one late sub appearance.

This Is Why Cabaye Will Not Be A Problem For Newcastle

Friday, September 6th, 2013 · 35 Comments

Now that Yohan Cabaye is still a Newcastle player, we expect him to act like a good professional and put the Arsenal saga behind him, and give 100% to Newcastle this season, and not start another circus in January, if a bigger club than Newcastle comes in for  him – as he did in the summer when Arsenal were gunning for him.

A Good Season Would Mean This Player Scores Goals

Friday, September 6th, 2013 · 21 Comments

Yoan Gouffran played very well when he came into the club in January, and of the five Frenchmen to arriveat that time, it could be argued that Yoan showed the most consistent form through the end of the season.
