Major Newcastle News Stories – 20th September – 2007

Thursday, September 20th, 2007 · 9 Comments

Quite a few interviews today from the Newcastle players and one from Big Al himself – who has a new book out, Alan Shearer – My Illustrated Career.

Obviously a good read for all Newcastle fans, and England fans for that matter. It has a forward by the great Sir Bobby Robson - one of our most favorite people – that should be worth the price of the book alone – which is £18.99 :D

You’ll be able to get it quite a few pounds cheaper on, or other sites.

Michael Owen Will Play on Sunday

Thursday, September 20th, 2007 · 13 Comments

The question in the press yesterday was whether Michael Owen will at some time need a hernia operation.

If that’s the case the minimum time needed to recover from the now relatively short procedure is 3 weeks but there again Michael has never been a quick healer and will probably take longer.

What is not clear is whether Michael actually needs one or whether it’s all hype in the papers.

Newcastle Reserves Lose and Carroll Sent off

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Newcastle Reserves were beaten 2-0 by a strong Middlesbrough second string at St. James Park last night under the watching eyes of manager Sam Allardyce, in which keeper Fraser Forster was the pick of the Newcastle side.

In other news, Andrew Carroll our 18 year-old striker on loan at Preston, was sent off (a straight red card) at Scunthorpe after 62 minutes for violent conduct. Preston lost again 2-1 and are now 3rd bottom of the Championship. To make matters worse Nicholls missed a penalty, which would at least have given Preston a point.


Fraser Forster - excellent game for Hexham born goalkeeper

Nicky Butt has talked to the Newcastle Journal about the game on Monday night and to be fair to Nicky – he tells it as it is.

Starting out by saying it was a bit of an embarrassment to Newcastle, which of course it was.

Who Should Newcastle Play Against West Ham

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007 · 87 Comments

After the diabolical performance on Monday night it’s going to be interesting to see what team Big Sam picks for our next game against West Ham United on Sunday.

The game kicks off at 1:30pm at St. James’ Park.

A win on Sunday and we can think of the game against Derby as a blip – but anything less than that and we’re probably not as good as some of us had thought – so it’s a key game for Newcastle.


Sam Allardyce – needs team to give a spirited and winning performance Sunday
