Newcastle Tracking Talented Croatian Defender

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016 · 10 Comments

Newcastle are reported to be monitoring 22 year-old Celtic defender Jozo Simunovic, who moved to Celtic late last summer from Dinamo Zagreb in his home country Croatia, and he had been at the club for 10 years.

It’s interesting in the Mail report they say Premier League duo Crystal Palace and Newcastle United are after the 6ft 3ins center-back.

Aren’t we in the Championship this season?

Jubilant Fans React To Fifth Win In A Row

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016 · 1 Comment

Newcastle fans  took to Twitter after our 5th successive win in the league against Ipswich and hopefully we can keep winning and start to pull away from the rest of the teams before the next  International break.

There are two more league games and an EFL up tie on Tuesday evening – three more wins would be great.

Maybe even the next International break would even be a little more enjoyable if we win all our six games in this run of games.

Well maybe not.



Ayoze Perez – played really well today
This lad has a lot of talent

Oh and I almost forget – Sunderland lost 1-0 at West Ham and are bottom of the Premier League with 2 points from 9 games.

Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez was quite happy after a good 3-0 win this afternoon against Ipswich Town.

The manager has praised compatriot Ayoze Perez who had a very good game for the Magpies and scored two goals to take his total to 5 goals for the season.

You cannot ask more from a player than two goals and an assist and that’s what Ayoze achieved today as he also set up the third goal for Matt Ritchie.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy was full of praise for a dominant Newcastle display this afternoon in front of just short of 52,00 fans at St. James’ Park and Mick said they were beaten by the Champions today.

Newcastle went ahead in the first minute through Ayoze Perez, who is being compared on Twitter to Brazil’s Pele by Newcastle fans after the game – after a sparkling display from the Spaniard today.

It was a long afternoon for Mick McCarthy and his Ipswich side but as usual Mick was brutally honest in his comments after the game.
