Owen Looks Sharp in England Training

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007 · 11 Comments

Steve McClaren says he has been very impressed with Michael Owen in training and thinks he has looked very sharp.

Michael of course played the last 16 minutes for Newcastle against Everton on Sunday, and even bagged a goal that was more difficult than it looked. That was just 8 days after his hernia surgery in Germany, and if he can prove his fitness during England’s training, he will play in both the upcoming Estonia and Russia games.

Barton Completely Committed to Newcastle

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007 · 36 Comments

Joey Barton is making excellent progress from his metatarsal injury, and he played 60 minutes for the reserves last night, although he didn’t want to come off, because he felt so good.

Looks like he will be competing for a place in Newcastle’s team for the Tottenham game on 22nd October, a must win game for us.

3 points should catapult us back with the leaders. Currently we are in 9th place, but the four teams above us are grouped within 1 point of Newcastle.

Abdoulaye Faye – Delighted to Be At Newcastle

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007 · 10 Comments

A great interview in the Journal this morning with Abdoulaye Faye, who had a first class game for Newcastle on Saturday, when he partnered Claudio Cacapa at the heart of the Newcastle defense.

With Steven Taylor and David Rozehnal on the sidelines there is plenty of competition for the central defense positions at the moment in Newcastle’s defense.

Faye indicated there were a number of clubs after his services including Sven Eriksson at Manchester City.

Should Owen Play Both Games for England?

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007 · 38 Comments

As we all know Sam Allardyce is concerned about the prospect of Steve McClaren fielding Michael Owen in both England’s European Championship qualifying matches against Estonia at Wembley on Saturday and Russia in Moscow four days later.

Sam thinks it’s a risk to ask Michael to play in crucial games after just undergoing surgery a week ago. As we mentioned earlier today it looks like Michael doesn’t agree. Let’s take a look at what Sam said yesterday about the situation.

Gateshead Lose First League Game Since March

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007 · 3 Comments

Gateshead lost their first league game since last March when they went down 2-1 to lowly placed Ilkeston Town at the International Stadium on Saturday.

To say Gateshead should have wrapped this one up is an understatement, but they missed too many of their chances.

Gateshead have now scored just 4 goals in their last 4 games, as goals seemed to have dried up, after scoring 30 goals in their first 7 games.

Joey Barton Almost There

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007 · 6 Comments

Joey Barton scored for the reserves as Newcastle United beat Wigan Athletic 3-1 at Kingston Park last night.

Joey played a full 60 minutes and this follows his first half outing last Tuesday night in our 2-2 draw with Man City reserves.

Barton scored the first goal after 19 minutes after a Jonny Godsmark cross was not cleared and Joey volleyed home from close range.

Owen and Allardyce Not On Same Wavelength

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007 · 40 Comments

Michael Owen, after helping to get the job done on Sunday for Newcastle against Everton, says he is ready to face Estonia at Wembley on Saturday and Russia in Moscow four days later.

Looks like Sam Allardyce is urging caution because Michael was just operated on 10 days ago in Germany, but as usual Owen really wants to play for his country.

Is there anything wrong with this? Absolutely not, just as long as he doesn’t return injured again from the international break.
