With the news that captain Kevin Nolan is set to sign a new deal at Newcastle, manager Alan Pardew will be hoping other star players put pen-to-paper as he looks to rebuild his squad for the 2011/12 campaign.
Football betting pundits note how midfielder Joey Barton and defender Jose Enrique are both out of contract in the summer with a whole host of clubs chasing their signatures following impressive performances in the top flight.
Newcastle United once again without Joe Barton in midfield and I can see the Toon was losing his passion and accurate crossing against the Toffees today. Yes, we can score first but after that we have difficulties to create another chances.
We score thanks to Best who was on the right position in teh right time. The goal was come with helps from Everton defenders who was too focus on their right defensive area and …
First of all, as a Toon fan, I must admit that I'm happy that we can get one point from a “superior” team like Arsenal, and most of all we successfully teach them how to play a real football match and shows them the result of a good fighting spirit.
I was watching the game on live broadcasting, and yes it was really shocking to see how easy we let them scores 4 soft goals. …
It was one hundred percents fortunate for the dark side to score an equaliser during the stoppage-time which is unbelievable 5 minutes long as nothing major was happening in the second half that needs to be paid off.
We did start the match in much comfortable style than in the last FA Cup third round match, and in just 4 minutes into the first half, Ameobi should have scored for the Toon if he can …
A hard won point against a very well organised team. I couldn't fault the effort, but the plain facts are that without Ben Arfa and Barton we lack creative quality in midfield.
We struggled to establish any measure of control in midfield, and although we got on top for spells in the 2nd half, a draw was probably a fair result. Both keepers made a couple of good saves, and Fulham hit the bar.
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 …
Just a few months ago, Joey Barton's claims that he deserved to add to his one international cap were laughed off by many, including some Newcastle United fans.
However, just ten games into the season Barton's ambition, although still clearly some way off, appears far more realistic. The midfielder has been ever present in the league this season and the midfielder has rewarded the Newcastle manager's faith with a series of stellar performances in a …
This is the first magpies zone post of the new Newcastle United premierships season and what makes me write again is after I saw a new Barton playing before my eyes (well infront of television actually).
And for this new post, I want to give him huge deserved credits for keeping his concentration all the way up until the very end of the game before finally being booked at the death of injury time.
Well, we all acknowledged this was a ‘must-win' game, a proverbial ‘six-pointer' (in October fcs), and we secured the points. That's the positive stuff. Other than that I thought we were generally shambolic, and the 2nd half in particular was sheer agony to watch.
The Baggies had a dodgy defence and going forward couldn't hit a cow's @rse with a bango. Despite that they passed us to death in midfield, particularly 2nd half, where they …
After being send-off in ridiculous way by the disastrous referee Rob Styles on Monday night fixture against Manchester City, a good news coming today for United defender Habib Beye as his appeal against his sending off is have been cleared by the FA authority.
His straight red card after just 12 minutes in the 2-2 draw at St James' Park has no solid evidence after the replays shown that Beye won the ball when challenging …
