It’s always useful to look at the betting on anything – because that’s where the money lies, and usually the bookies get things right – otherwise they wouldn’t be able to make a living and the odds on Metalist winning next Thursday night are 6/7 odds on, and Newcastle are 12/5.

Saturday, February 16th, 2013 · 10 Comments

Danny Simpson will leave Newcastle in the summer, when his contract runs out at Newcastle, and it’s a good question as to how many more games he will play for the club in the next four months – we think not too many.

Still A Sense Of Injustice At Newcastle

Saturday, February 16th, 2013 · 8 Comments

It was a frustrating game on Thursday night both for the fans and the players, and we just couldn’t score to get ourselves ahead in the tie, although we did seem to score two perfectly good goals from Papiss Cisse, which were both denied by a Norwegian linesman – and that’s the big talking point after the game.

A score draw next Thursday night in the Ukraine against Metalist Kharkiv will see Newcastle go through to the round of the last 16 of the Europa League, but we’re not sure how strong a side Alan Pardew can field in the second leg, because we have a game just four days later in the Premier League against Southampton, a team we are tied on points with –  but behind them on goal difference.
