It hasn’t been too often since Mike Ashley bought Newcastle over six years ago that we have seen a youngster come through to the first team, but that’s happening this season with Paul Dummett, and the local lad has looked a very good player for Newcastle when he has come into the first team.

News today, which may not be unexpected, that Fab Coloccini has returned to Argentina, as he recovers from a groin injury that he picked up while on International duty with Argentina, and Newcastle could see the captain out of action for more than eight weeks, and now this is the second season running that Colo will be out of action for a matter of months.

England Become Interested In Paul Dummett

There is news today that England have been monitoring the very good performances of our young left-back (or center-back) Paul Dummett, who has come through like a steam train at Newcastle this season, after an extremely successful loan spell at St. Mirren last season, and the 22 year-old is now pushing Davide Santon very hard for that left back starting position.

All Of Alan Shearer’s 206 Goals For Newcastle – Video

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013 · 7 Comments

We had some quotes from Alan Shearer this morning about the upcoming derby game against Sunderland, and maybe some of the younger fans don’t know just how good (make that great – no make that fantastic) a player Alan Shearer was for for both Newcastle United and England, after he joined us from Blackburn Rovers in the summer of 2006 for £15M – cheap at the price.

If you have a short 26 minutes to spare – look at all the goals Alan scored for the Magpies – there’s some really fantastic goals this man scored, and he’s one player who really earned his big wages on Tyneside, and if  nothing else you can keep this video for when Newcastle lose a game – and you can cheer yourself up. 😀
