Is This Proof Newcastle Are Now A More Ambitious Club?

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016 · 284 Comments

Steve McClaren has finally talked about the January transfer window – now that it’s over – and during the window Steve wouldn’t say anything – he wouldn’t even admit we needed to bring a new striker in.

So it was overdone a bit but on the other hand you certainly don’t want to say which players you want in – because that could alert other clubs.

Two Managers Waiting To Take Over At Newcastle?

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016 · 10 Comments

There’s just no doubt that Steve McClaren is under some pressure to deliver the results for Newcastle United in the run-in to the Premier League – we have 15 league games left and we need at least 20 points to ensure we are safe this season.

We have to do a lot better than we did in the first 23 games when we took only 21 points.

And since Mike Ashley was willing to spend money in January like it was going out of style – we expect him to have a back-up plan just in case Steve McClaren cannot produce the results with the four good players we have brought in this month.

Saido Berahino´s Strange Tweet Last Night

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016 · 158 Comments

Saido Berahino may still end up at Newcastle in the summer and at the end of the transfer window last night he sent out a rather strange tweet – but maybe it´s just a sign he is maturing.

Saido is a good player and it seems Newcastle will be going after a top striker in the summer if we survive in the Premier League.

It seems to us Saido would be a great signing for us.
