Pardew – Things Looking Up – Big Players Back Soon

Thursday, January 10th, 2013 · 28 Comments

Newcastle have proved, without a shadow of a doubt, that once we have some of our big players out of the side, we are only a mediocre side at best. We’ve had three top players missing over the last few months – Steven Taylor, Yohan Cabaye and Ben Arfa, but without them we’ve looked just an ordinary side, and have started to learn how to lose far too often.

Good News – Newcastle Player Fit For Norwich Game

Thursday, January 10th, 2013 · 22 Comments

It’s good to have a little bit of good news to report this morning, as our pursuit of Loic Remy may not be going exactly according to plan, and the news is that James Perch has recovered well from his knee injury, and should be in the squad for Norwich and likely will be in the starting line-up for Newcastle at Carrow Road. And Steven Taylor may even play at Norwich City too, and it seems certain he will at least make the squad.

Joey Barton Says Loic Remy Staying At Marseilles

Thursday, January 10th, 2013 · 58 Comments

It may be bad news on the Loic Remy front, and just like we failed to get out number one target to Newcastle last summer Luuk de Jung, is could be that we will also fail to get Loic Remy to Newcastle in January.

Newcastle Still After England Center-Back

Thursday, January 10th, 2013 · 98 Comments

For some reason big Sam Allardyce always goes for the older players – even when they are past their best and it seems true today, as the West Ham manager is trying to get 35 year-old Sylvain Distin, the former Newcastle player to London.
