Newcastle Interested In The New Claude Makelele

Thursday, September 11th, 2014 · 160 Comments

The Chronicle (Mark Douglas) is reporting today that Newcastle are scouting for a replacement for Cheick Tiote – so if that is accurate it tells us that Tiote has let it be known he’s the next player who wants to leave Newcastle, and we suppose that could even happen in January.

Thursday, September 11th, 2014 · 13 Comments

After the shambles of the last day of the transfer window on Monday, September 1st, we didn’t expect to see Alan Pardew after that, and thought his next appearance would be the press conference for the game at Southampton on Saturday.

Fans Not Confident Of Taking Anything From St. Mary’s

Thursday, September 11th, 2014 · 12 Comments

We have lost both our games at St. Mary’s in the last two seasons, and haven’t even managed to score a single goal – we were beaten 4-0  last term and 2-0 the season before that, after Southampton had successfully fought their way back into the Premier League – which is where they belong.

A huge 77% of Newcastle fans think we will lose this game, and that would not be good for Newcastle and it wouldn’t be too good for manager Alan Pardew either.

Pardew has to start picking up some points soon, otherwise his job will be on the line, after the last two seasons have not been good.

There’s still time to vote for those who haven’t yet voted – one vote per reader.
