Monday, July 21st, 2014 · 222 Comments

Siem de Jong has already impressed at Newcastle and there’s not many players who score their first goal for the club after only being on the filed for 14 minutes but that’s just exactly what Siem did last Tuesday at Oldham when he brilliantly rifled the ball into the top right hand corner of the net after his free kick had rebounded off the wall.

Newcastle Want Champions League Football

Monday, July 21st, 2014 · 27 Comments

It seems that most Newcastle fans are in just a little bit of shock because of how well the new era under new Managing Director Lee Charnley has started off at Newcastle, with the club already making six good signings  by mid-July and there’s still around six weeks left to get the three or four players we still need to make this one of the best transfer windows for a long time.
