McClaren Pleased With Performance But Still Lots To Do

Saturday, August 1st, 2015 · 7 Comments

Steve McClaren and the Newcastle team have put up with a very tough pre-season, and the tour over here of the US made things a lot more difficult.

That was because of all the traveling involved, the extreme heat which the players are not used to, and then the jet lag when the players both arrive in the US and then arrive back in Newcastle.

That all helps to debilitate the players, the coaches and the journalists  accompanying them on the tour, so it may look glamorous on paper, but it’s a real grind.

Armstrong Praised By Manager On His Coventry Debut

Saturday, August 1st, 2015 · 14 Comments

Adam Armstrong made his debut for Coventry City against Oxford this afternoon, but the game finished in a 0-0 draw.

The 18 year-old Newcastle and England U19 striker drew praise from manager Tony Mobray after the game, although he was disappointed with the overall form of his side, who were well contained by Oxford.

Newcastle Go Back In For Top Striker But Is That The Priority?

Saturday, August 1st, 2015 · 53 Comments

There was news in the Chronicle before the narrow 1-0 loss to Borussia Monchengladbach this afternoon, that Newcastle will go back in for top striker target Charlie Austin this coming week, with the hope that we can get him over the line before our first game against Southampton a week tomorrow.

It seems that the only thing holding up the deal is the fee still has to be agreed between the two clubs, and with Charlie willing to come to Newcastle and no other clubs willing to pay the £15M QPR want – Newcastle are hoping to get a deal under £15M.

Unlucky Newcastle Go Down 1-0 To Monchengladbach – Report

Saturday, August 1st, 2015 · 60 Comments

Newcastle played well this afternoon against a good Borussia Monchengladbach side, and were unlucky to lose after hitting the woodwork twice and giving away a very poor goal after 65 minutes, which basically showed where the weakness of Newcastle lies – in  defense.

Right out of the blue and against the run of play after  Steven Taylor had the ball but lost possession in the penalty box,  and the ball was played quickly to Thorgan Hazard, the brother of Eden Hazard –  who had the ball in the back of the net quickly, giving Tim Krul no chance.

That was the difference between the two sides.
