Let’s Keep Supporting Newcastle Through Thick And Thin

Thursday, November 29th, 2012 · 20 Comments

This time is somewhat like where we were back four years ago, when we had around the same number of points and were about the same position in the Premier League – 14th. But there are also a lot of differences to four years ago, because we have a stable manager and coaching staff, we haven’t just lost our manager, like we did with Kevin Keegan, and the club is a lot more stable now than it ever was four years ago, when Joe Kinnear became the manager.

That R Word Rears Its Ugly Head – Relegation

Thursday, November 29th, 2012 · 33 Comments

It was anther horrendous result last night, as Newcastle had victory snatched away from them in the last nine minutes of a game in which Newcastle played so much better than they had done last weekend at Southampton, and while we got nothing out of this game, the passion and decent form shown by our players last night,  will surely help us to claw our way back up the league – and sooner rather than later.

Pardew – A Couple Of Mistakes Cost Us The Game

Thursday, November 29th, 2012 · 21 Comments

Newcastle were much improved last night at Stoke than we had been in the dismal loss at Southampton last Saturday, but it was another loss, and a cruel one at that with two bad goals conceded in the last nine minutes of the game after Papiss Cisse had put Newcastle ahead with an opportunity goals a few minutes into the second half.
