  • Yohan Cabaye first strike helps Newcastle stay in 4th place

    Unbelievable, a stunning start of the season for Newcastle after so many years of doom and gloom. Although we are not playing good last Saturday against the bottom of the table club, but we still manage to get an important three points at home.

    The Latics match was also the first live game that my son ever saw. He has been asking me to come with me couple of times before, but last night I …

    While the visiting team has tasted the European soil before today's meeting with Newcastle today, the result seems to show that we're also should be there next season.

    Without Ameobi who has a slight injury, AP recalled Leon Best to partnered with Peter Lovenkrands as United front men. Obertan filled the empty slot on the right wing where used to have Barton to fill in. And from my point of view, he's done a very …

  • Chelsea vs Newcastle United, FA Carling Cup Third Round Post Match Review

    We visit Stamford Bridge with everyone expecting us to get thrashed by the current Premierships leader, but we simply answer all those predictions with a good win.

    The game itself starting as everyone wishes when Patrick Van Aanholt opened the scoring in six minutes on the clock but Nile Ranger, pay his terrible mistake who lead to Chelsea's first goal, slide the ball home on 27 minutes.

    Newcastle was far the better team after Ranger's …

  • Huge deserved credits to wor Barton today against Wolves players

    This is the first magpies zone post of the new Newcastle United premierships season and what makes me write again is after I saw a new Barton playing before my eyes (well infront of television actually).

    And for this new post, I want to give him huge deserved credits for keeping his concentration all the way up until the very end of the game before finally being booked at the death of injury time.

    The …

  • Abdoulaye Faye returns bringing on a heartbreak for the Toon Army

    How many times we ever witnesses a Toon manager being sent-off in Newcastle United competitive fixtures? Not too often I'm sure and JFK who has been sending off by Mike Riley might be the first in our Premierships years.


    But one thing that's for sure is we are too often to dropped points after doing good. This is some kind of a curse that I don't really understand until now. We are too easily given …

  • Coventry City 2 vs Newcastle United 3

    Newcastle finally edged the fighting spirit of Coventry City with a 3-2 win at Ricoh stadium tonight. It was the game in the League Cup 2nd round that brings the extra time after a very late-late equaliser from the Sky Blues skipper Scott Dann in the injury time.


    Newcastle took the lead in 21 minutes, thanks to Charles N'Zogbia effort, although the goal was later being describe as an own goal, but Zog deserves the …

  • A goal is enough to take Newcastle for a first win

    Bolton side almost spoiled Keegan's first home game of the season, just like they did on their last visit, when they get the penalty reward after Taylor deliberately handled the ball inside the danger zone.


    Newcastle United once again had to thank Shay Given for his worldclass penalty save today to give us another promising match. It took his double act of parrying low to his right first to denied Kevin Nolan's penalty before steer …

  • Newcastle United looking very good on the season opening match

    To be honest, I was a little bit of scared before the kick-off. Compares to them, we are the small David against the Goliath today but the smartest side “won” the game, and Newcastle surely deserve more than that.


    Keegan handed a full Premierships debut to all of our three new signing this season. With Jonas Gutierrez and Danny Guthrie have tasted the pre-season matches before today, it was Fabrizio Coloccini who is still “virgin” …

  • Stand up and be counted, Milner shows it to the Toon Army

    Newcastle United pre-season frendliests have been in plus-minus shows us of what our new season would be. We started with a 4-1 win and end it with another win, with series of defeats and one draw in between.


    Mike Ashley was seen wearing the new purple away shirt with Coloccini's name on the back, with the player himself, a £9.5m switch to St James's Park, also present in the directors' box.

    United in silver, our …
