I caught Bobby Moncur talking on Century Radio on the drive home. He said he'd been talking to Joe Kinnear, who had asked to see him and Supermac to pick their brains on all things Toon, including the current squad.
Although not officially in charge, he said he had felt the need to go into the dressing room at half time and say a few home truths to the team. He said he was rather …
Our first meeting with them at Ewood Park under the previous manager, United were lost 3-1 with Martins scoring for us on that day.
Today, Oba Martins is back for his first game under the Special K. Young defender, Peter Ramage is also on the way for a return to training next week after more than six months out with cruciate ligament damage.
Newcastle will still without Emre, Mark Viduka, Stephen Carr and Shay Given …
Howay the Lads!!! It's disappointed again if we're talking about the result. But it is something beyond the reach, as some wise-men say we were not with the ladyluck side today.
Some lads who watch the game have a verdict that we were better than we were before in the last few games. Keith from the NotBBC forum told that we played some decent pass and move football instead of just lumping it up the …
No changes for both side as the second-half starts with Newcastle takes the attack. It took two minutes into the second-half when Emerton fouls Milner on the left. It was Geremi delievering the ball into the area. Obafemi Martins takes it with the glance and the ball is into the back of the net, for his six goals of the season.
Rovers are responded with some serious pressing for an equaliser. Habib Beye has to …
Blackburn get the game underway attacking the visitor, but Newcastle calmly anticipated them. The Lads seems to forget ing last weekend horror against the Kop and start the game with their heart sets to make the Toon Army proud of them.
In an early attack from Given long ball sets Milner on the attack. He has space to attack but pick out Oba Martins who hurtling into the right-hand side of the area but his …
Newcastle in my opinion will start with 4-4-1-1 formation today with Allardyce welcomes back Joey Barton, James Milner and Abdoulaye Faye to the Magpies starting XI for Saturday's fixture at Blackburn.
Milner, Oba Martins and Alan Smith forming a three-pronged attack. N'Zogbia is likely to play wide as left-wing back, but Steven Taylor is likely missed out this weekend game. Beye, Rozehnal and Faye will back-to-back with Zog.
Faye returns to the defence at the …
Sam Allardyce perfectly understand, the next ‘Derby' for him against Blackburn will be another chance to show the Geordies faithful what calibre he is in.
We are certainly not hoping a World Cup champions calibre from the Lads today. Blackburn will have to try to recover from their midweek mauling when they face us in the Barclays Premier League today. They will be without their trusty captain Ryan Nelsen.
The New Zealander is suspended against …
How many time this season we feel good for a football match played by the Lads lately? I think we, the fans have all the rights to show what we saw from the team performance.
It was the Newcastle United new midfielder Joey Barton, made an extraordinary appeal for the club's supporters yesterday to back manager Sam Allardyce following what he described as their vicious attacks at St James' Park last weekend.
Vicious attack? I …
Sam Allardyce will try his best to lead Newcastle squad tomorrow to make the third away win at Ewood Park. Newcastle have won their two previous meeting with them back in 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 season.
Last season United won 3-1 thanks to Obafemi Martins goals and Steven Taylor, while in 2005-2006 we also hit them by three goals through Shearer, Owen's first goal for Newcastle and N'Zogbia.
Sam Allardyce in fact, never lost in his …
