Big Sam Must Fix Injury Fiasco at Newcastle to be Successful

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007 · 2 Comments

One of the things that intrigues Newcastle fans about Sam Allardyce is his commitment to science to get players fit so they can play the game of football to their maximum capabilities. We all know how successful he’s been at Bolton where they had the lowest injury rate in the Premiership – while at Newcastle over the last two seasons we’ve had the highest – with last season being unbelievably bad. That’s one area Sam must fix to be successful at Newcastle.

Czech David Rozehnal on His Way to Newcastle

Monday, June 4th, 2007 · 14 Comments

As we reported in our story a few days ago Newcastle were seriously bidding for Czech Republic international David Rozehnal – and we indicated this deal could be wrapped up very quickly since Rozehnal was to decide between Borussia Dortmund and Newcastle over the weekend.

It looks like this deal may be wrapped up in a couple of days since Burussia have pulled out of the deal – as they have been outbid by Newcastle.

Allardyce Will Get Best Out Of Newcastle Squad

Monday, June 4th, 2007 · 5 Comments

Sam Allardyce is committed to getting the very best out of the squad he has inherited at Newcastle. That’s good news because it’s not since Bobby Robson was at the club that the best has been brought out of the players.

It will be a nice change to see all players giving their maximum for the team – that has certainly been missing these last few years.

Allardyce Forces Parker Out – Barton Moves In

Monday, June 4th, 2007 · 17 Comments

Very strange news being reported today that Scott Parker. Newcastle’s captain doesn’t want to leave Tyneside for West Ham – and wants to remain at the club as club captain. This is a surprise because we had thought that Scott and/or his wife wanted to return to their London base – but that doesn’t seem to be the case.  This all seems very strange to us.
