Nothing is ever straight-forward at Newcastle United and it now seems as though a permanent deal to sign Loic Remy may not be as cut and dried as was thought.
The 26-year-old Frenchman agreed to move to Tyneside on a loan agreement from QPR in the summer and has done much to lift spirits amongst the Toon Army, scoring five goals in just five appearances for Alan Pardew’s inconsistent side.
When the season-long loan transfer …
Well, I thought that was a very decent performance although we do still have some issues defensively. I didn't believe we had much of a chance today and I'm actually quite heartened by that performance.
After a couple of scares, I thought we were on top when Mbiwa was sent off, and may well have gone on to win if we'd kept 11 on the pitch. At that stage Tiote and Cabaye were controlling the …
Newcastle United – great club, great fans and yet always seeming to lurch from one crisis to the next.
Even when they were blazing a Premiership trail a couple of seasons ago, qualifying for Europe and playing an expansive and attractive brand of football along the way, there were still people muttering about how hard an act that would be to follow and how Europe would put an unholy strain on the squad.
Both of …
One of our French legion Yohan Cabaye has officially apologised to the Toon Army in an exclusive interview. Cabaye's bid from Arsenal during summer transfer window was later been rejected.
In the effect of his transfer speculation to Arsenal, Cabaye was not taking part in Newcastle's first two Premierleague match this season against Manchester City and West Ham as well as in the League Cup against Morecambe.
“I want to forget what happened during the …
The 2012-2013 football season for Newcastle United was something of a letdown.
After a strong finish in the 2011-2012 season that saw them 5th place in the Premiership and with a spot in the Europa League, this season saw the Magpies finish 5th from bottom in the Premiership table and without any silverware in the cabinet.
Lack of Strong New Additions
The club brought in two players who became regulars for the 1st team in …
Strange game, played in a muted atmosphere during a tepid 1st half. I thought Chelsea edged the half and could have gone in one up after Torres (I think) hit the crossbar with a header direct from a corner. They just seemed a little sharper and physically stronger than us. The 2nd half was better and we gradually fought our way on top. The commitment was terrific, even though we started to look a little …
Before the game was started today I have a slight concern that the dirty mackem were desperately want to see Tiote being sent-off in no matter what and they have to thank their extra man in the field for it.
Yohan Cabaye gives the Magpies off to the perfect start in just three minutes of play and although the mackems and their helpers throwing everything they can in search for an equaliser, we held to …
With Spurs pressing high up the pitch we simply could not function in midfield in the first half and there was no service at all to the front guys.
That was a really, really tough game and one we showed great discipline to stay in. In truth we were fortunate to go in at half time on level terms.
The half time tactical switch with Jonas moving into the middle to support Cabaye and Tiote …
With one of the signings of the Premier League last season and one of the players of Euro 2012 so far, Newcastle fans should be bursting with pride that Yohan Cabaye is one of their own.
When he arrived at St James’ park last season, few fans would have been familiar with the midfielder, but didn’t we soon learn what a real gem Alan Pardew had picked up. His quality and the way he controlled …
We were simply the better team today. There was a confidence and swagger about the lads that we haven't really seen to date, and in spells during the 1st half in particular we played some lovely passing football and looked a really good side.
We're scoring goals for fun, and have conceded only one goal in our last 6 games, with 3 consecutive clean sheets. Colo and Santon were imperious, Williamson quietly efficient and even …
