Ashley Chose The Wrong Club When He Bought Newcastle

Sunday, May 4th, 2014 · 266 Comments

When Mike Ashley decided to buy Newcastle United back in the summer of 2007, that’s the  famous club in the north-east, he made the wrong choice, and seven years later with only one top ten finish so far, and one relegation, that’s very obvious to Geordie fans these days.

Will Pardew Have Trouble Recovering From Incredible Abuse?

Sunday, May 4th, 2014 · 72 Comments

Alan Pardew must have had to put up with the most abuse for a manager at St. James Park for a long long time, although it’s hardly unusual for a manager in a bad run to get abuse from the fans, and we still have the image back in late 2007, of fans simply outraged and furious at big Sam Allardyce, with Sam looking straight ahead and chewing that gum of his furiously, as fans were hurling verbal abuse at him, and heaven knows what they were shouting, but they weren’t compliments or about the weather, that’s for sure.

The Train – Our Man Of The Match

Sunday, May 4th, 2014 · 11 Comments

Moussa Sissoko has made a huge difference to the Newcastle in the last couple of games, since he’s been back from that hamstring injury, and we have looked a much better side with Sissoko, Remy and Debuchy back in the starting eleven, but the chances are high that we could lose Remy, and even  Debuchy in the summer.

Newcastle Likely To Finish 9th – Demonstrations Could Help

Sunday, May 4th, 2014 · 29 Comments

Newcastle finally broke their six game losing streak against a poor looking Cardiff City side, but we still made really hard work of it in that second half, when two times – after 60 minutes and 69 minutes – fans walked out – and of course that’s what’s being reported today, but there were only hundreds who left the game – and there were over 50,000 fans at the final home game of the season.
