  • James Milner handling official transfer fee request to Newcastle United

    The first three words that come up on my mind were WTF!!! The Club official site said to be very disappointed that James sees his footballing future as being away from St. James’ Park, while in my personal opinion, there’s nothing we can do about things like this, so be it!


    More of the club statement mentioning about how He is a valued member of the squad and it is only a year ago that …

  • Newcastle Final Countdown in summer transfer window

    The window closes on Sept 1 this year, which is next Monday, after being extended by one day because the 31st August falls on a Sunday. 8 days left, what’s going to happen? Keegan speaks of at least 2, hopefully 3, more players coming in.


    Rather confusingly, he has also said that he thinks that Colo is the “wow” signing, although my reading of Ashley’s contribution on the subject was that we would sign Colo …

  • Coventry City 2 vs Newcastle United 3

    Newcastle finally edged the fighting spirit of Coventry City with a 3-2 win at Ricoh stadium tonight. It was the game in the League Cup 2nd round that brings the extra time after a very late-late equaliser from the Sky Blues skipper Scott Dann in the injury time.


    Newcastle took the lead in 21 minutes, thanks to Charles N’Zogbia effort, although the goal was later being describe as an own goal, but Zog deserves the …

  • Kevin Keegan expecting silverware for Newcastle this season

    We may have to admit that we’re far from the top four placement this season and for the next 2 or 3 years from now, but we can expect some silverwares on domestic League Cup or the FA Cup during the process.


    With a bit of luck, which is rarely to be seen coming to our side for the last ten years, Kevin Keegan has the plan to securing Newcastle’s first silverware since the last …

  • Newcastle United vs Bolton match review

    As expected, notloB were hard to break down. They came with little invention and seemed pretty happy to hoof the ball up to Davies and Nolan when he got forward. First half was 0-0 (as I’m sure you all know), but I thought we’d shaded it, if only we did more attacking play.


    Their penalty was nailed-in, but I just had a sneaky feeling that Shay is on a bit of a roll (let’s face …

  • A goal is enough to take Newcastle for a first win

    Bolton side almost spoiled Keegan’s first home game of the season, just like they did on their last visit, when they get the penalty reward after Taylor deliberately handled the ball inside the danger zone.


    Newcastle United once again had to thank Shay Given for his worldclass penalty save today to give us another promising match. It took his double act of parrying low to his right first to denied Kevin Nolan’s penalty before steer …

  • Toon Army want the first win of the season against Trotters

    If last Sunday the Lads were entering the field watching Old Trafford’s bandwagon fans displaying the text of “More Goals Please” to turn us down and trying to remind Toon players of our last meeting with their side, it didn’t work out the way they wanted.


    But today, more than 50,000 genuine Toon fans will cheer them up and give massive roars when they coming out from St. James’s Park tunnel, with only one mission …

  • Match verdict against Manchester United

    A really encouraging performance that will hopefully give the squad the lift they possibly needed. I thought KK got it spot on tactically, and the majority of the problems we had we created for ourselves through sloppy passing.


    ManU had a few chances in the 1st half, but we really shut them down in the second. We did ok defensively, and for the first time for ages the defence were well supported by our midfield. …

  • Newcastle United looking very good on the season opening match

    To be honest, I was a little bit of scared before the kick-off. Compares to them, we are the small David against the Goliath today but the smartest side “won” the game, and Newcastle surely deserve more than that.


    Keegan handed a full Premierships debut to all of our three new signing this season. With Jonas Gutierrez and Danny Guthrie have tasted the pre-season matches before today, it was Fabrizio Coloccini who is still “virgin” …

  • Fabricio Coloccini the answer to Newcastle United worst defensive record

    The wait is over, Fabrizio Coloccini is now Newcastle most expensive defender so far. Previous record holder was held by Jonathan Woodgate with a £9 million transfer fee. His record surpassed by Coloccini from a Deportivo official claim that his fee could rise to around £10.3million.

    Is he worth that much?


    Coloccini started his career in the youth team of Argentinos Juniors, but made his professional debut in 1998 with Boca Juniors. In 1999, at …

  • Stand up and be counted, Milner shows it to the Toon Army

    Newcastle United pre-season frendliests have been in plus-minus shows us of what our new season would be. We started with a 4-1 win and end it with another win, with series of defeats and one draw in between.


    Mike Ashley was seen wearing the new purple away shirt with Coloccini’s name on the back, with the player himself, a £9.5m switch to St James’s Park, also present in the directors’ box.

    United in silver, our …

  • Newcastle United 2008-2009 season preview

    I went to my first home game of the new season last night at St James Park. Newcastle played with in their new away Purple strip against an all in white PSV team.This was very much the typical pre season warm up, with neither team really looking to put in 100%, probably due to a lack of match fitness.


    Newcastle started well going 2-0 up within 8 minutes. Steven Taylor scored a brilliant headed goal …
