Ba To Be Fined By Newcastle – Is This Bring Orchestrated?

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012 · 20 Comments

It seems the interview Demba Ba did for the French outlet Canal+ could have been a breach of his contract, because he didn’t get permission from the club to do the interview, and of course that was the one in which he said that Arsenal were a very attractive club and that he didn’t like the style of play at Newcastle at the moment.

Loic Remy – Newcastle Are A Big Club And A Very Good Team

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012 · 146 Comments

There is news that Newcastle are already in advanced talks to take Loic Remy the Marseilles French International striker to Tyneside, and the good news is that it seems that Loic would be only too happy to come to Newcastle, and add to the growing French contingent at the club.

No More Contract Offers To Demba Ba – Period

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012 · 442 Comments

It seems Newcastle have made their last and final offer to Demba Ba, and as January approaches we can only hold our breath that no club comes in and meets the £7M release clause, but it now seems completely out of Newcastle’s hands.

QPR Game Is D-Day For Newcastle – We Must Win

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012 · 16 Comments

We don’t want to put too much pressure on our team, but the QPR game on Saturday is probably the most important game of the season, because a win will help lift the gloom on Tyneside, and give our players some much needed confidence, but a defeat would be simply devastating.

Alan Pardew – We Made A Mistake

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012 · 54 Comments

Well it seems that only one new player is likely to come through the door in January, and that to us is disappointing,  because with Yohan Cabaye and Steven Taylor out until February, we’ll have to go at least another eight games in the league before our squad is strengthened by their return, and that’s a lot of points to play for and possibly lose.
