Vote With Your Feet At Nufc #time4change

I don't think I have ever felt as low as a supporter of Newcastle United as I do now. I'm not this low because of  the gutless display on Saturday against our local rivals or because of the sale of Cabaye our prize asset in the January transfer window. I'm so despondent because since Mike Ashley arrived 7 years ago he has systematically knocked the collective stuffing out of us all over and ....

He started out at Carlos Sarmiento Lora ....

Time To Bury The Hatchet With The Mag , True Faith And The Newcastle United Supporters Trust By Steve Wraith June 23rd 2013

Time To Bury The Hatchet With The Mag , True Faith And The Newcastle United Supporters Trust By Steve Wraith June 23rd 2013   A lot of people ask me why I don’t get on with Mark Jensen and Mick Martin from The Mag and True Faith fanzines? Well the answer is….I do. I don’t actually have a problem with these lads. Let’s face it they both edit the 2 most successful ....

Goodbye And Thanks For Nothing David Lambeezy

‘Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead’ got to number 1 when Thatcher died and may do again now that ‘Deadly Dekka’ has finally fallen on his sword. I make no bones about it I really did not like or understand this guy. I wasn’t a Chris Mort fan either but that is a different story. Why I here you ask? I haven’t commented too much  about my relationship with the ....

    Welcome to the latest edition of ‘Toon Talk’ and  Happy New Year to all of our readers. Can you believe that at the time of writing we still occupy a European slot. We also have a new ‘Number 9’ in place at last and we haven’t sold a big name player in the January transfer window! No neither can I but it’s all true! Alan Pardew and John ....

  I can certainly hold my hands up and admit when I’m wrong folks and our front cover attack on Alan Pardew in Issue 6 calling him a puppet looks a bit stupid and Ill informed after the start we have had. Pardew is more like a puppet master as his side has gone unbeaten at the time of writing through the months of August, September and October. No mean feat in the Premier League and ....

Wraiths Rant From Issue 6

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS FROM THE AUGUST EDITION     Happy new season? Not likely. Hope you all had a great summer. As usual the back end of our holidays have been ruined by our owner and his able side kick with the selling of club skipper Kevin Nolan, the ongoing battle with Joey Barton resulting in him being put on the list on a free, and Jose Enrique crawling slowly to the exit door ....

Sir John Halls Thoughts On Death Of St James Park

I have read with great interest the statement from the club about the rebranding of the stadium from St James Park to Sports Direct Arena.  Whilst it would be easy for me to condemn the change I feel one must stand back and take a balanced view of what is proposed.  What we as fans have to realise is that Mike Ashley is the legal owner of the club and in theory can do anything he ....

Sir John Hall On Mike Ashley And Future Of Newcastle United

  Our editor Steve Wraith travelled to Wynyard Hall to meet up with Sir John Hall and Honorary Life Vice-President Malcolm Dix and talk about the Magpie Group, Shearer, Mike Ashley and a lot more besides. Read on…   TT:   Were you always a Newcastle United fan?   SJH:   Yes always. I’m an Ashington lad and my first match was in 1941. I was sitting on ....

Sturridge On Way To Nufc??? Who Dean?

Toon duo Shane Ferguson and Danny Guthrie are both out of the trip to the USA and it looks like six weeks out for Guthrie who is not having a great deal of luck at St James with injuries. With an influx of midfielders he could find himself playing catch up again. The tabloids are full of rumours once again with Arsenal making noises that they are going for Jose. Pardew has shrugged his shoulders ....

    What is it with us and deadlines this season? First we bring out issue 2 and the club sack Hughton a day or two later , and then we bring out issue 4 and Carroll goes right at the death of the transfer window. If Mike Ashley has sold the club by the time you have read this then don’t say you we didn’t warn you. I was stuck in the middle of the maelstrom that saw Andy ....

Nothing ever shocks me at St James Park. As I get ever closer to 40 I tend to look back a lot at what I have witnessed at the club I chose to support as a boy and there have been plenty of ups and downs and plenty of shocks and revelations. It’s like being in a relationship with somebody you can’t trust and inevitably every now and then you get hurt. It’s your choice whether you ....

  Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha arrrr man that result against the makems man wasn’t it a belter. It’s one I’ll remember for a long long time to come. For derbies I’ve been to it’s up there with 4-1 and even Chopra scored, and 2-1 and Any O’Brien Liam O’briens freekick past the hapless Carter. The sight of hundreds of inbred makems leaving for the exits ....

Well it’s certainly been a mixed bag of results so far for our beloved Newcastle United. St James Park which last year was a bastion of invincibility has been breached already by this years Hull, Blackpool and long ball/throw specialists Stoke, with sterner tests to come. Typical Newcastle though sees us go to Wolves and Everton and come away with 4 points and snatch an unlikely 4-3 win at ....

Welcome to Issue 1 of Toon Talk a new fanzine on the market and one with the staying power of John Holmes on Viagra.(Cue Hovis Music) I remember lad when Newcastle had 6 or 7 fanzines on sale outside the ground, all diverse and full of views about the club both positive and negative. They all faded away and then there were two.  Now I do buy them as I’m sure you do but for me there has ....
