  • Newcastle’s new kit 2013-2014

    Newcastle United's new kit has just been released and already caused trouble.

    Papiss Cisse ahaed of a pre-season friendly

    All in all the style of the shirt is nice to look at and quite popular given the fact that the new Puma King 13-14 template has also been used for other football clubs like Feyenoord or Dortmund.

    The real reason for the problem was actually the club’s sponsorship with Wonga and the logo on the shirt. The Senegalese player Cisse has refused …

  • What Pardew should do against Stoke City

    Following the 2-0 defeat against Southampton on Sunday, anything I could possibly say about the midweek matchday against Stoke City has already been said many times before.

    I would prefer Pardew not once again stuck with 4-4-2 formation while playing away from home against a team playing with five in midfield and with our midfield containing two lightweights, Ferguson and Anita.

    Newcastle need to be far more solid while playing against Stoke City, that means …

  • What can we take from Newcastle home defeat against Swansea

    Well, firstly I thought we were better than last week – although that doesn't say a whole helluva lot. Secondly, I thought Swansea were good: their passing and movement were of a different class to our enthusiastic plodding.

    They were the better team and deserved the three points, but only just managed to do that. I couldn't fault the effort yesterday but we lacked cohesion, playing like a group of individuals rather than as a …

  • Newcastle ends the Anfield misery with a point

    Yesterday we were so close to write the new chapter in our history at Anfield with a comfortable win. From our 18 Premierships games there we only can manage one win and it was in the early days of my Newcastle United history.

  • 5under1and v Newcastle United – 10 Gladiators against 13 useless men

    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 …

  • Alan Pardew: We need to roll our sleeves up

    Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has revealed that he isn’t too worried after the defeat to Manchester United at the last weekend.

    Pardew’s men were beaten 3-0 on home soil – the exact reverse score line from this fixture last season – but the Newcastle boss believes his team were beaten by a Red Devils side that were on top of their game.

    Sir Alex Ferguson’s men did appear to be firing on all cylinders. …

  • Newcastle United v Aston Villa, Barclays Premier League match review

    First half we were poor. With the exception of a few decent breaks down the left from Santon we showed very little effective attacking play.

    Gael Bigiramana during The Barclays Premier League

    Cabaye still looked as if he was on his holidays and Ben Arfa was having one of those frustrating afternoons when he kept running into trouble. Our delivery into the box, both from open play and from set pieces was absolutely woeful.

    Villa were no better but were worki g …
