My latest story on metro.co.uk is now up! Entitled "Is Kinnear scouting Ferguson a Sunderland spoof?" or alternatively "Did the Joe Kinnear scouting Shane Ferguson story come from a mischievous Sunderland fan?" (they seem to think that two titles are better than one over there), it originally had the same title as this piece but [.
My two latest blogs for metro.co.uk are now up! The first one, entitled "Pardew Is he deluded to the point of insanity?" takes a look at some of the talking points from Monday evening's game with Manchester City. Talking points such as the gossip surrounding Yohan Cabaye and not least, something all we Newcastle [.
Whilst searching for inspiration yesterday, this piece by Jackie Smithfield in Newcastle United blog The Mag caught my eye. Entitled ‘Newcastle fans help Mick Harford to decide Millwall is better bet', it bragged of fan power scaring away Harford from his former club before he'd even started, claiming: ‘With an overwhelmingly negative reaction, no doubt [.
They are two chubby old men who swear so much, they even make Bernard Manning and Chubby Brown sound like a pair of Vicars. One is reviled and one is revered by significant sections of Newcastle United's fanbase, yet they are almost like peas in a pod. Two chubby, foul mouthed, old school pros with [.
Since yesterday evening, there has certainly been no shortage of statements from Joe Kinnear on being appointed as a new Director of Football at Newcastle. Like his new colleague Alan Pardew, keeping his mouth buttoned has never been one of Kinnear's stronger points, though even he has surpassed himself this time with a verbal Tsunami [.
When I first saw this story in the Northern Echo last Saturday, I didn't discount it entirely, but
I had the usual doubts I have about virtually every Newcastle United story at the moment. But then
it resurfaced again in this story yesterday, and I'm not quite so doubtful anymore. The "story" is
that whilst [.
You may have noticed that Newcastle United's chief scout, Graham Carr, was very much in the news
recently, and much of this was centered around him being given an eight year contract by the club's
managing director, Derek Llambias. Usually, when a club renews an agreement with it's chief scout,
it hardly gets a great [.
After the news (broken on this site, incidentally) that Newcastle United have already signed a pre
contract agreement with Romain Amalfitano. The latest name which has been coming up in recent
reports about Newcastle United's scouting activity is that of precocious 18 year old AZ Alkmaar
midfielder, Adam Maher.
In a break from the usual reflections by our silver supremo, Alan Pardew, his assistant, John
Carver has given an interesting and fairly extensive glimpse into Newcastle United's quest for more
talent during the current international break. Whilst awaiting a call from agent Pardew on where
his next scouting mission will take him (apparently), Carver [.
In the second installment of his exclusive interview with Sports Direct News (the first is here), Newcastle United's manager, Alan Pardew, revealed that French players are attracted to Newcastle United because both they and their agents have seen how successful other French players have become after joining the club.
In the wake of Newcastle United's 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon, Managing
Director, Derek Llambias, has released another club statement. The statement onve sgsin highlights
the clubs finances, summer transfers, youth development, managing / coaching staff, training
facilities and supporters.
Imagine you're 67 years old, and the Club you've supported all of your life, your home town club,
offers you bucket loads of cash, plus expenses, to travel abroad and watch football lots of
football. Stay in nice hotels, eat at the finest restaurants but best of all, watch loads and loads
Regular readers of my efforts for this blog will know that, like many other United fans, I place
little credence in 90% of the stories which appear in the media about who is leaving and who is
joining our illustrious club. There is so much media "noise" going on at the moment about
movements, and [..
