  • We Need the Right Men in the Right Place for Newcastle United

    A breathtaking game for the Magpies today against the Latics. 2-2 as the final score is not the result that I wanted to but I can say that I'm relief that we can get a previous point out of this frustrating match.

    Fabrizio Coloccini celebrates his goal against Wigan Athletic

    I can see the lads are in deep frustrations after conceded two goals from the former Newcastle United player that we used to cheer his name of, although I must admit he took …

  • Manchester City vs Newcastle United Premierships Review

    Probably not the result that we wanted but all in all I'm quite pleased with the Lads performance today. We did keep the game very much alive and shows that this is not the same team that was relegated two years ago.

    I should say the City fans will be very lucky to have the help from referee Mr. Atkinson for his two questionable decision that one gives the City a penalty reward for what …

  • 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 …

  • Everton vs Newcastle United – a late review

    The Toon performance against the Toffees last Saturday was awesome, another fabulous display by all the lads that resulting the first win against them at their own ground since 2001.

    Hatem Ben Arfa

    I know this also too early to say that we can guarantee our place in the top flight and is not impossible to reach the top of mid-table, with little help of luck, we even have the opportunity to back in Europe.

    Alright, let's now …

  • A hard working and full of committment performance but lacking in class

    Canny game with 4 goals, and a lot of effort from both teams. Being honest, a draw was probably the right result, but this was 2 points we just couldn't afford to drop. As has already been mentioned we never had any measure of control in midfield until Zog came one – to a mixture of cheers and boos.

    Geordie boy Andy Carroll saves the day

    I suspect the improvement was more to do with finally getting some mobility in central m/f …

  • Newcastle United vs Fulham Match Review

    Despite the enormous comfort of an early goal, which in the context of the game was massive, a tense and nervous 90 mins made for agonising watching, but ultimately proved satisfying. The players were nervous, the crowd anxious, and the lack of the 2nd goal made things ever more nail-biting.


    We played some canny football a times, but us usual made things difficult by endlessly giving the ball way. We created a good few chances, …

  • Another really vital and hard-earned victory for Newcastle

    A tight game that developed into a midfield slugfest, with neither keeper having a whole lot to do. Without ever reaching the heights as a football spectacle, it was actually an absorbing contest. Of course, the fact we nicked it at the death now makes it seem a lot more memorable than it probably was!

    Another really vital and hard-earned victory for Newcastle

    We never established control in midfield, and had to work our gonads off to keep a foothold in the game. …

  • Newcastle vs Reading Match Review

    This was a game we would undoubtedly have lost 2 months ago – and yet we won 3-0. That is a measure of how far we've come under KK.


    Reading started brightly, and we really struggled to get on top, principally because we couldn't a grip on midfield. This was where, for me, the team showed real bottle, fighting their individual battles, and and battling for each other – refusing to allow Reading to get …

  • Spurs (1) vs Newcastle United (4) Post Match Review

    Magpies Zone welcoming Citizen Vain, my new Toon friend from the internet and his first article for my blog. I meet this lad from one of social networking site and I was very glad to have meet a fellow Toon Army from blogging.

    This is the beauty of making a Blog about something that you really love and not just following someone else success in blogging about making money. My new mate from Vainzine is …

  • We Want Sam Allardyce Not Shambles Allardyce, a Postmortem

    Oba may have said anyway he likes about Sam's effort for Newcastle so far this season. Martins says there is ‘no point' in Newcastle United losing faith in manager Sam Allardyce. That's before today's match, and I believe he will have regret of saying that after the match.

    howay Sam!

    Allardyce only took over at St James' Park in the summer, there has already been speculations about his future after an indifferent start to the season. No …
