Fans To Stay After The Game Tomorrow And CELEBRATE

Those going to our final game of the Championship season against Barnsley tomorrow afternoon at St. James’ Park should plan to stay after the final whistle and celebrate.

We know that’s true because Newcastle have just issued a message on their website saying that.


It’s been a great season for our club and we are already promoted back to the promised land – the Premier League for next season – back with the big boys.

We guarantee tomorrow will be different for fans than last year
Things have changed big time

Newcastle United have issued this message on their web-site today:

Newcastle United go into Sunday’s match against Barnsley with a chance of lifting the Sky Bet Championship trophy in front of a packed St. James’ Park.

Should the Magpies better Brighton’s result away at Aston Villa, Rafa Benítez’s side will leapfrog the Seagulls to finish the 2016/17 season as league winners.

Whatever happens, supporters are being asked to remain in their seats after the full-time whistle to celebrate a successful season with Rafa Benítez and the players.

With the Magpies guaranteed an automatic promotion spot already, there will be a presentation by the EFL on the pitch of either a first or second-placed trophy before a lap of honour.

Supporters are urged not to enter the field at any point on matchday, including immediately after the full-time whistle and during post-match celebrations.

Tickets are completely sold out for the final match of the campaign but fans can listen live by signing in for free at www.nufc.co.uk or follow live updates on Twitter at www.twitter.com/nufc.

Kick-off at St. James’ Park is at 12pm (BST).

Those at the match tomorrow enjoy it and if you need any reason to do that just think how terrible things have been in the previous three seasons.

But now we have Rafa Benitez at the club and big things are in store for Newcastle United in the future.

That’s a lot to celebrate and we may even win the game and even the Championship title tomorrow afternoon too!

And that’s in addition to already being promoted.

🙂 🙂 🙂

    I must admit I did crack-up when the thick-headed poltroon known as “Jail for Ashley” addressed you as Jib and you answered him

    If the score stays the same!
    Hell of an incentive for the Swans at home v Everton at tea-time,
    This is why the PL is so popular

    From the previous article.
    I don’t think we’ll be looking at a new back five.

    The keeper thing I dont get as we have 3 good keepers here already.

    I think we’re only looking at 1 centre back and 1 left back. I think yedlin and Anita are good enough for the premiership.

    If he’s not going to play Mitro he might as well sell him and I hate to say it but I don’t think Gayle will do it in the premiership. I’d love to be wrong. Oh and Perez is definitely not good enough, I’d sell him in a heartbeat.

    Well, I backed us to be champions last August at 9/4 and had given it up recently but I think it’s back on again. I think we must be favourites again; Villa just have to draw with Brighton and a Home win gives us the Championship! Not that bothered but it would be nice!

    On Kodi

    Correctly said that kodi itself is just a media player
    The two things that cause the legal problem are

    A/ plugins that allow you to stream copyrighted content from sites which host illegally-sourced media.

    B/ the host sites themselves.

    You can of course use a VPN to disguise your origin to your ISP, and get around any block they may put on streamed content to your router IP address.

    However you have to put yourselves in the shoes of those who perceive they are losing good money. What would you do?

    1/ Locate the servers that are hosting the content and shut them down, fining and imprisoning the owners

    2/ Locate and shut down the illegal plugins, fining and imprisoning the owners

    3/ Force ISP’s to block or seriously throttle P2P streaming traffic?

    4/ Select random consumers to prosecute and heavily fine as an example?

    5/ All four, in that order.

    Anyone know what the answer is?

    One answer might be for the greedy Australian to reduce his subs to a level where folk wouldn’t think twice about paying.

    Harley Gayle will get goals in the prem no doubt he is a natural finisher/poacher and has done it before.

    Perez also is much more suited to the prem and looked 10x the player he did in the championship and again scored goals. To sell him would be idiotic in my opinion.

    I do think we need a top class striker though who can offer the physical side of the game aswell as good finishing so hopefully we bring a player like that in over the summer. Biggest signing will be a number 10 who can accept the ball in tight areas and carry it and create. We have nobody who can offer that and playing in the formation we do that’s hurt us this season.

    What do people think about making an offer to John Terry. Rafa has the links with his time at Chelsea, and he would offer a huge amount of prem experience albeit he would unlikely be a first choice starter these days. Would also be good for our relatively young defense.

    Think he’s exactly the sort we need, HOWEVER Rafa had a fairly public falling out with him so I wouldn’t t count on it

    Like Gerrard he made a statement saying he wouldn’t play for another English club, unlike, say a play like Carrick he has no ties in any way shape or form with the club. I would go as far to bet my house on him not coming to Newcastle United in any capacity other than to comment on the odd game from time to time.

    Although found not guilty in court of racism -was still fined a huge amount by the FA and banned for a number of matches – which will probably prevent the granting of a visa to play sport in the US.

    Would be more than happy with Yedlin starting as RB. Only the one game against Ipswich in which he was poor (whole team was and first game back from injury). Overall this season he has been excellent and so we need to focus on other positions much more. I would like an upgrade on dummet so we have attacking balance on either side.

    John Terry should be thanking Rafa for extending his career.

    He was found not guilty by the courts so I’m sure terry would be fine to travel to us. If not I’m sure if he applied to nypd he’d get the job straight away!

    I agree, I don’t think rb is a problem and I would be happy with yedlin and Anita competing at rb again with sterry on loan to a championship club. Lb I would like us to take Robertson from hull.

    LB and Haidara can go. DM and Colback can go. LW and Atsu can go. RW needed. ST and Murphy can go, although give him a couple of sub appearences before deadline day as a send off.

    If Atsu is 6m then would take him in a heartbeat. You won’t get a player with that ability for that price unless you take a big risk.

    Will all depend on price and who goes I guess don’t think there will be a fixed amount

    I think we need 4 and the way we usually work 3 will be attacking players. Can we rely on our Gayle to stay fit. Will Mitro step up. Can Shelvey bear the responsibility of being the start of every attack each week. The one thing we know we cant count on is a tight defence as we always seem to make mistakes whoever is at the back
