There’s a very good long article in Sport Witness today on Remy Cabella’s signing on at Newcastle, and what went on this year to make that happen, and as we know Newcastle first went after Cabella in January of this year, just after  Yohan Cabaye had left for PSG.

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014 · 47 Comments

We waited hoping that we could get one or two good players through the door yesterday, and while other clubs seemed to do some good business we were only successful in moving Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Ben Arfa out on season long loan deals and we think that will save the club around 6M in total this season, although it has also weakened the squad.

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014 · 26 Comments

It was what we would call a worrying performance from Newcastle on Saturday,  because we did not look good at the back and even when the brilliance of young 18 year-old Rolando Aarons had us ahead 3-2 with only two minutes to play in normal time, we couldn’t hang on for the win, and Wilfried Zaha equalized with only two minutes of the seven minutes added time to go.
