Double good news for Newcastle United fans this morning.

It's all change for the Newcastle side against Barnsley tonight as full debuts are given to Cacapa and Enrique in this second round Carling Cup tie. Nobby Solano also comes in for his first start at right back in place of the injured Stephen Carr. This is a good chance for Nobby to show Big [...]

Michael Owen Ready To Start Firing Again

Newcastle united Blog at related • 0 views
It's taking a little while for Michael Owen to rediscover his sharpness after almost two years in the football wilderness. His two serious injuries, the metatarsal and ACL knee problems, have restricted him to just a few first class-games for Newcastle United since he signed almost exactly two years ago. Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce has been talking [.

Newcastle-Barnsley Match Preview - Newcastle Win

Newcastle united Blog at related • 0 views
Newcastle take on Barnsley tonight in the second round of the Carling Cup, in what is probably Newcastle's best chance to win something in Sam Allardyce's first season in charge of the club. It looks if we get through this tie we'll be in the last 32 teams in the competition - so there's still quite [...]

Sad Times For Kieron Dyer

Newcastle united Blog at related • 1 view
We were very sad to hear Kieron Dyer will now miss most of the season after presumably breaking his leg in last night's West Ham vs Bristol Rovers game. Craig Bellamy scored a brace to take the Hammers through. It's only 10 days since Kieron's move to West Ham to be near his family in Ipswich, [...]

Sam Allardyce is hoping the transfer of Abdoulaye Faye will finally go through in the next couple of days but his goal is now to bring in two players before the transfer window slams shut on Friday at midnight.

Great To See Mike Ashley At The Game

Newcastle united Blog at related • 0 views
We thought it was a nice touch that Mike Ashley turned up unannounced at the Middlesbrough game on Sunday. Just a pity we didn't win so he may have been persuaded to give Big Sam more transfer funds to bring in a couple more players. That was the first Newcastle game Mike has seen in [...]

Charles N’Zogbia – A Diamond in the Rough

Newcastle united Blog at related • 1 view
Charles N'Zogbia has been in sparkling form for Newcastle United this season, albeit in an unusual position for him, left-back. But he has looked so good in that position, and has still been able to get forward to score two excellent goals in the first three games. We think he's been Newcastle's best performer along with another [...]

Another disappointing result yesterday against Middlesbrough and these are the games we must start winning. We think we should have won the game after going ahead with just 13 minutes remaining.

Sam Allardyce - Defensive Lapses Just Unacceptable

Newcastle united Blog at related • 4 views
We were very disappointed that our defense conceded two poor goals yesterday after the team had twice gone ahead. The second goal was particularly bad as Arco, who played many seasons at Sunderland, was left all alone on the edge of the penalty area, following a Middlesbrough corner and was left with too much time [...]

Newcastle were held to a 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough at the Riverside while they will be asking why and how they didn't win this game.

Charles N'Zogbia - wonderful performance from Frenchman as he scores goal [...]

Newcastle Takeover Talk is Just Nonsense

Newcastle united Blog at related • 2 views
There has been continued talk in the papers that Mike Ashley will sell Newcastle United at the right price and that price is rising – probably every month.

Give Michael Owen a Chance at Newcastle

Michael Owen has had bad luck since he moved to Newcastle. That's probably a huge understatement. He has also been involved in lots and lots of media-talk about him leaving Newcastle and that's also probably a huge under-statement.

Newcastle confirmed today they had reached an agreement with Dutch giants Ajax for the sale of Spanish striker Albert Luque. Financial terms of the transfer were not disclosed.

Middlesbrough vs Newcastle Match PreView - Newcastle Win

This is a game we feel Newcastle United should win if they are to have a good first season under big Sam Allardcye. Middlesbrough will be without their best players Jonathan Woodgate through injury (surprise) and Yakuba Aiyegbeni has agreed a move to Everton for a ridiculous fee of ₤11.25M. This looks like a good opportunity [...]

Sam Allardyce is quite convinced that 21 year-old winger James Milner can make the step-up from the under-21 side to the full England set-up.

Michael Owen played the first 60 minutes in England's defeat 2-1 against Germany last night.
