Last weekends result was magnificent and obviously had added importance for the simple fact that the alternative of losing would have been unbearable. But as others have said this was by far the better result.
After a spirited comeback against Wigan at home, we've won 3 premiership games in a row. Simply fantastic. This run shows just how important a point like that at home can be, even though at the time we were questioning …
Football is really a strange game to watch, sometimes it makes you cry not only when your team got beaten but also when they are the winning side. I was in a little of tears today after watching how good we are against the team that often called one of the Big Four.
They are surely the bigger team in terms of their achievements in domestic league in the past couple years, and also have …
After the great display of team spirit against Wigan Athletic on last Saturday, Jonas Gutierrez sees the Black-and-Whites team has no reason to get relegated again in next summer.
Jonas told in the Chronicle site today that Newcastle United are strong and can stay mentally strong in each games.
“That will be important. We are all together in this fight and the players understand that,” He added more “It doesn’t matter if you are on …
Strange one. If we'd played like we did at OT against Manure we'd not have been outclassed. KK said before that game that he'd got the lads to believe that Manure weren't infallible and it worked.
At the Emirates, we were flat footed, never really got going keeping the ball and overall were outclassed by Arse who were obviously stinging from the Fulham defeat plus had talisman Fabrigthingy back.
There were only glimpses of Arse …

Kevin Keegan confirmed that Viduka got a slight calf strain so he's not quite ready but hopefully he'll be featured for the home game with Middlesbrough.
With Viduka's missing, Joey Barton is set for his …
We were canny good first half. We were toe to toe and for every attack they had we replied; we had a wee bit of menace in our endeavour.
Duff was doing well down the left, I remember a one off the line from Duff, a cross from Milner flashing across the face of the goal with Owen close to it, Taylor with a freak free header. A canny team effort. We did fine going …
Kevin Keegan's side finally surrender by a one man show Emmanuel Adebayor. They must have been doing some diplomacy with the FA to secure their lethal striker still available for today's match.
It would have been a different result if the FA put the charges to both Adebayor and Bendtner for their violent conduct while they play in the League Cup against Spurs. But for Newcastle United, it was clear that we still far from …
King Kev Newcastle's squad will bolster up with the return of Alan Smith and Nicky Butt after the FA suspensions but will still missing Emre, who is banned for the red card he received in Newcastle's FA Cup 3rd round replay against Stoke City.
