Sunday, November 23rd, 2014 · 54 Comments

Watch a jovial Alan Pardew at a news conference after the game when he’s talking about giving the captaincy yesterday to Moussa Sissoko and then a journalist’s phone rings and Alan laughs and forgets what he was talking about – we’ve never seen the manager so relaxed and full of fun.

Wonder if the six wins in a row helped? :

It’s almost been too good to be true, and we had to pinch ourselves at the final whistle yesterday when Newcastle won the fifth league game in a row and the sixth in all competitions, and yet we still have a number of our top players out injured.

Redknapp – Newcastle A Big Club With A Strong Squad

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014 · 12 Comments

We thought QPR played quite well yesterday,  and their performances of late are much better than a team that is currently bottom of the league after they lost 1-0 at St. James’ Park,  and surprisingly bottom club Burnley won 2-1 at Stoke City,  and go to 3rd bottom

Our Man Of The Match Yesterday Was Simply Terrific

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014 · 8 Comments

Moussa Sissoko is about fifth in line to be captain of Newcastle United, but he was handed the honor yesterday because Fabricio Coloccini, Cheick Tiote, Siem de Jong and Steven Taylor were all out injured,  and the French International midfielder had another commanding and powerful performance for Newcastle yesterday in midfield, and scored the winning goal.

Moussa is easily our Man of the Match for yesterday, and manager Pardew seems to agree because after the game Alan said Sissoko was the best player on the field.
