Ever Get The Feeling You've Been Cheated At Nufc?

So we failed to sign a striker on transfer deadline day, or even bring one in on loan, or even sign anyone....Liam Ridgewell included!  Sitting through the final hours of sky sports news, watching the fans of clubs across the various grounds, all going mental every time a reporter mentioned their clubs name was frustrating viewing, but I was happy to put up with it all, knowing that surely ....

So Who Was The Best?

  I was asked the other week the classic football question that all fans debate; ‘Who is the best player to have played for your club’.  My thoughts flashed back through time and I came up with the list of usual suspects, but it occurred to me that I hadn’t gave any consideration at all to our current crop of players, Andy Carroll included.   If you try and ....

8 Games To Go

I’m sure everyone else is doing exactly what I’ve been doing this week?  What every football fan must go through this time of year now the final run in is in sight?   Eight games to go and the question we are all asking is ‘Just how many more points can we get?’  Mulling over these last games,trying to predict a win here or a draw there is pretty ....

On My Radio

I was interested to hear a certain local journalist on a certain national radio station last week, getting his usual dig in when it comes to all things Newcastle United.  That he has been commentating on our games for as long as I can remember seems to be irrelevant, with his constant negative remarks for whatever reason he never seems to have a good word to say about us.  When asked ....

Congratulations Birmingham

Congratulations to Birmingham City for their Carling Cup victory.  A team outside the big four winning a major trophy is surely healthy for our game and gives the rest of us hope that one day it will be our turn.  However if wining the Carling Cup in February is followed by relegation* in May, then I’d rather leave the big four to it.  Birmingham sit a precarious two points ....

Welcome To The Madhouse Shefki

So how can you be 4-0 down after 26 minutes, with a team full of disillusioned players who looked like they had never played together before, yet somehow by full time you end up with a 4-4 draw and leave disappointed that you haven’t won the game?  It could only happen at Newcastle United!  At half time if you had told me we would have been facing Arsenal ladies in the second half ....

What A Week

Well what a week!  I’m not going to rake up the confusion around who said what and who is blaming who in the Pardew versus Carroll debate (or was it Ashley versus Carroll?).  Truth is we will never know what really happened.  Whatever did happen it was yet another day where Newcastle found themselves in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.  Will we ever have a season ....

The Devil In Disguise

Back in early November I claimed Jesus must be a Geordie after the day we had beating the mackems 5-1.  Well after last Sunday we now perhaps know who the devil in disguise is?  Wallsend’s finest; Steve Bruce.  So many years spent with the Red Devils at Old Trafford may have served to distance himself from his roots, it also seems to have helped to erase both his memory and ....

The Fa Cup...i\'m Not A Big Fan

I’m not the biggest fan of the FA Cup.  It was all magical and mystical when I was a kid and yes I stood there at Wembley in the 90’s crying as we failed to show up for yet another Cup final, but these days it’s all a bit of a nuisance to be honest.  Premiership survival is all that matters these days and we are still in a relegation fight, so let’s not get too ....

Joey Back On The Naughty Step

I seem to be discussing Joey Barton most weeks now and unfortunately this week is no different.          I can’t defend you this time Joey you will have to hold your hands, sorry fists up on this one.  It’s obvious the red mist descended and we saw a flash of the bad old Joey Barton.  I say flash as I’m hopeful in fact ....

Everything In The Garden Is Rosy

I think I was still in a state of shock last week when I was on here rambling on about Jesus, aliens and even sticking up for Ashley in the wake of the Mackem massacre.  Surely back to normality this weekend?  Arsenal away with all the big boys back for the home team, there could only be one result?   Well let’s just say there must be someone upstairs must looking down ....

Jesus Is A Geordie

I lost my ‘Santa is a Geordie’ pin badge last year, a gift from a good friend, and with Christmas now on the horizon, I now need to start looking for a replacement.  Forget Santa, it will be a ‘Jesus is a Geordie’ badge after the 5-1 thumping of the mackems!  Can you believe that happened?  5 goals in a derby, a hat-trick, Bramble sent off, Bruce left ....

That Was The Week That Was In Black And White 2

I’m not going to dwell on the Carroll/ Nolan/Calderwood saga, or on anything else that might have happened since I wrote this, but it’s been a difficult week at St James.  Throw in the dreadful home form since we thumped Villa with the slow slide down the Premiership table and the outlook for Newcastle United has reverted back to type – bleak! However positive vibes are ....

That Was The Week That Was In Black And White 1

So England drew 0-0 with Montenegro. Big deal.  The old club versus country debate rages on and I find myself more than ever camped in the black and white half rather than the red, white and blue.Now I do want England to do well, my NE13 birthplace entitles me to that, but I just can’t seem to get up for these games.  In fact I never have.   Treason perhaps, but all ....
