Nufc:dxb Into Exile

Life's path is definitely a strange and winding one.  Along the journey you may take different turns and go down the odd blind alley.  But it always seems to take you wherever you need to be at that time.  At least in my experience it does.  And on that journey certain things are with you for a reason, a season or a lifetime. Or again that's how it seems to have been for me; ....

Not What Kind Of Player?

I genuinely can't remember the last time a football match left me this angry, bordering on apoplectic, for so long after the final whistle. Football is a game, a game where emotion is always part of the mix.  As my long suffering friends and family would testify whether I'm watching at the ground, at home or in a bar in Al Barsha, no one likes a good shout or a swear at the match as much as ....

Home Advantage Gives You An Advantage! (sir Bobby Robson)

Without a league game this past weekend we've been left to focus solely on Europe and have a weekend kicking our heels thinking about what could have been in the FA cup. The first leg against Metalist Kharkiv was a frustrating affair.  Typically after I blasted Cisse for straying offside a few times too often it was actually then down to 2 dodgy linesman calls that saw 2 good goals chalked ....

Nufc:dxb When You See A Big Gash, It Can Disturb You As A Player

NUFC:DXBWhen you see a big gash, it can disturb you as a playerThe ever world weary part of me that has witnessed what has happened at NUFC since the transfer window "slammed shut" (as Jim White no doubt screamed into your auditory systems) wants to say 2 steps forward and one back.  But in all honesty I can't say that I would have expected not just the number but also the quality of the ....

Playing In The Hole 2

Well it’s been a busy few weeks since I last had a chance to download my thoughts to the keyboard and as ever there’s plenty to talk about.  This is, of course, after the time we were told, by sage voices as Mark Lawrenson, paid to proffer opinion on such matters, that the “wheels would come off.”  Come off what exactly? Let’s look at this ....

Playing In The Hole

In an international break it should really be a quiet week.   This is of course NUFC and there is never such a thing as one of those.  Ever.  As the dust was still settling in the aftermath of the renaming of St James’s Park announcement came reports that Derek Llambias had been recorded in a bar rather indiscreetly having a pop at Keegan, Shearer, ....

It Was Too Good To Be True

Well I suppose it was all too good to be true wasn’t it?  The cynical pessimist that is an inherent part of being a Newcastle United supporter was always waiting for the wheels to come off.  Somewhere.  Be that on the pitch, a hiding from an unexpected source, the off field antics of some over paid recalcitrant player, an unwise word from the higher echelons, a training ....

Playing In The Hole

For reasons known only to himself, Steve has asked me to start sharing the random corners of my mind with you all in what I hope will be a semi regular update/blog type thing, taking a look at the world of football from an unashamed black and white perspective.  It’s been a while since I’ve done owt like this so bear with be if it’s a bit crap.  It will get ....
