Pardew – It Will Be A Tough Game For Crystal Palace

Friday, August 29th, 2014 · 14 Comments

If the lads can score a goal or two tomorrow against struggling Crystal Palace, then we should be able to get our first league win of the season, and that would give us a decent 4 points from our first three games, which is the same total we got in the last two season from our first three games.

Newcastle Trying To Negotiate Loan Deal For Frenchman

Friday, August 29th, 2014 · 14 Comments

Newcastle would like to completely unload Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa – in other words they would like the deal with Marseilles to be a permanent transfer rather than a season-long loan – but news in France is that the two clubs are struggling to agree an initial loan deal for the Frenchman, with a future option to buy – and the big problem is his wages.
