In Hughton I Trust

“There’s only one Chris Hughton”, “Hughton give us a wave, Hughton Hughton give us a wave.” Two songs that rang out from the stands of St James on such a memorable day for my beloved black and whites.  Both of which, during last season had threatened to erupt but only in small not too confident manner.  On Sunday it felt like he had arrived.  He may ....

Ups And Downs

4-3 at Chelsea? You sure? Of course it was. What a feeling that gave us. It was an awesome showing and an awesome result, one that Mr Hughton and the lads who played that night should take huge credit for.  We were by far the weaker side on paper but managed a magnificent result.  Work the following day was so much easier than normal. Since then though things have taken a slight turn ....

Get Off My Chest

So I’ve been a little bit slow with the blog this last week or so.  This is mainly due to the fact I’ve been concentrating the second issue of Toon Talk magazine but also in small parts due to the battle I’ve had getting hold of tickets for the mackems on Halloween.  It was more of a heart or head battle.  In this one the two were just plain confused.  ....

You Try Writing A Blog Whilst Watching The Team You Love

I’m sitting here writing this weeks blog whilst watching a foreign feed over the internet of the toon v Chelsea in the carling cup. So bare with me.  The feed in all honesty is stuttering as much as our performance seems to be.....1-0 down....  Surprisingly for me though, going into this game I was extremely calm.   I usually find myself sitting here during carling cup ....

Push It To One Side

Push it to one side by Paul Marsden The international break has come and gone and the premier league resumed with yesterdays visit of Blackpool to St James.  They came to frustrate and that is exactly what they did.  The 2-0 score line more than flattered the seasiders.  On another day it could have finished 6-0 to the black and whites.  We were real unlucky.  Personally ....

Keep Up The Good Work

So a little international break has come along doing its best to interrupt what has been a cracking start to the season as far as I’m concerned for the black and whites. A battling display at Old Trafford, a lesson given to the villains and a handy point away at molineux.  The 6-0 turnover of Villa a surprisingly awesome display by the mags and the point at wolves surely something that ....

Our Season Starts This Weekend By Paul Marsden

We all pretty much knew that Monday nights trip to Man Ure was just a particularly high calibre extension of our pre-season.  Although we do aim to get a result in every game winning this one was almost as unlikely as Blackpool winning 4-0 away from home on the opening day (“cough, cough”). In the end it turned out to be a good run out for the lads and for one or two of the ....

Keep That Flow

So the new season is almost upon us and I think it is about the right time to throw out a few predictions for you lot to slap back in my face come May next year.   Pre-season to me has been somewhat surprising with regards to players coming in, half decent on pitch performances and quietly confident groans coming from the training ground and the toon management team.  For me the ....

Joey Forgot His Riazor- The Tash Signs On By Paul Marsden

It’s now time to  add Joey Barton to a list that includes the likes of Philippe Albert, Brian ‘Killer’ Kilcline and Mickey Quinn amongst one or two less familiar others.  Three players that have gone down in history as great players for the toon.  Not only for their quirky moustaches but for some awesome displays in black and white over the years.  Joey ....

Sol Settles In By Paul Marsden

A surprisingly encouraging summer continued this week with Sol Campbell checking in at St James to the delight of his other half.  It’s a signing that from what I can gather has split opinion amongst the mags but I for one think its an awesome acquisition.  The confused community up the road will tell you that they never wanted him and that Titus has the years on him.  More years to make more mammoth mistakes if you ask me. Campbell brings a wealth of experience and for ....

A Steady Pre-season

Sol Campbell, Mamadou Diarra, Hatem Ben Arfa, Mathieu Flamini, Danny Rose and Madrids golden child Raul. Yes Raul. These are just a few of the names linked with a move to toon over the last week.  Adding even one or maybe two of these or the other names linked with us to the signings of Dan Gosling and James Perch would be an awesome bit of business by the club or by Chris Hughton. Whoever is doing the leg work.  A transfer window that promised so little with ‘no capital ....
