Did the Kinnear scouting Shane Ferguson story start with a Sunderland fan?

Newcastle United Blog at related • 0 views
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 [.

Newcastle United Blog at related • 0 views
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 [.

Are we in danger of shooting ourselves in the foot over Kinnear?

Newcastle United Blog at related • 0 views
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 [.

Newcastle United’s new crazy gang – Kinnear and Carr

Newcastle United Blog at related • 0 views
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 [.

Kinnear – Why is there still no official confirmation from Newcastle United?

Newcastle United Blog at related • 0 views
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 [.

Sunderland and Middlesbrough to get EPPP “Category One” status, but not Newcastle?

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 [.

Graham Carr – He’s not the messiah…

Newcastle United Blog at related • 0 views
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 [.

On The Transfer Front – The Likely Lads!

Newcastle United Blog at related • 1 view
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 [..
