There has been much talk amongst fans in the past few weeks on the situation with Newcastle United's captain, Fabricio Coloccini. While there is no doubt that the player is having personal problems at the moment, that he made a request to go back and join his family in Argentina, and that one of his [.
Speaking in a pre match press conference for this evening's Europa League game against Maritimo in Funchal, Alan Pardew has revealed his displeasure at the recent words of Demba Ba's spokesman, Alex Gontran, also revealing that there is STILL a release clause in the player's contract. Telling the media of a recent conversation with Ba [.
Venue: Ashburton Grove, London. Date: Mon 12th Mar 2012. Kick-Off: 8pm. Referee: Howard Webb. Well,
Arsenal came from behind once more to clinch victory for the fourth time in a row, which I have
been informed is a Premiership record. Whilst the first half of the game wasn't exactly dull, a
minute or two of [.
Of course, as most of you will no doubt know by now, disgruntled left back, Jose Enrique, the
subject of much contract and transfer speculation over the past few weeks has been extremely
critical of the club's transfer policy and claimed that they "lie all the time". As my esteemed
collegue, 'Thump' also reported on [.
Alan Pardew has informed us that the lack of discipline that crept in under previous managers such
as Chris Hughton and Alan Shearer will no longer be tolerated at the club. Speaking in a rare
interview, the tough talking, no nonsense supremo called time on the anarchy in and around the
club's Benton training ground.
Speaking in an interview for "talksport" radio, their consultant on matters of Dutch football,
Marcel van der Kraan, suggested that Newcastle United's alleged pursuit of FC Twente centre back,
Douglas Franco Teixeira, has been complicated by the fact that he is a Brazilian who is owned by
three Brazilian agents, who will all want "a [.
Yohan Cabaye states in an interview that he believes teamwork has been responsibly for a lot of
Newcastle United's success this season and that it's teamwork that can help us compete even with
clubs that have better players. Yohan Cabaye has been assessing the season for French site
Sport24.com and this is what he had [.
The somewhat unexpected inclusion of Nile Ranger for Newcastle United's ill fated League Cup
encounter with Blackburn signals something a second chance for the young striker. Although he is
still way back in the pecking order, with Alan Pardew suggesting in a phone in on BBC Radio
Newcastle's "Total Sport" that even 19 year Sammy [.
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 [.
Newcastle United deny that their players were out of control during Saturday's bust-up with
Arsenal. It appears Newcastle United aren't happy about the charges the FA levied after the fracas
during Saturday's game against Arsenal. The statement from the FA reads: "Newcastle United and
Arsenal have been charged by The FA with failing to control [.
On the back of Joey Barton's Twittergate situation, Newcastle United get heavy by making it clear
that using Twitter to attack the club is forbidden. Inevitably, Newcastle United have laid down the
law regarding Twitter and all players have been issued with strict guidelines as to what they can
and cannot to on the loathsome [.
Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton fires off some parting shots as he heads for the exit along
with left-back Jose Enrique. The club must now look at how these players will be replaced (if
indeed they will at all). Joey Barton was given a two-week fine for his renegade Twittering
yesterday, which probably comes as [.
Newcastle United's Wayne Routledge only needs a medical to complete a move to Swansea. Meanwhile,
Joey Barton's situation continues to dominate the NUFC headlines. Unfortunately, besides the Barton
furore there's little else happening at the club just now. It seems that Wayne Routledge has agreed
personal terms and has all but signed for Swansea City [.
In one of the most anticipated Tweets in human history, Newcastle United dissident, Joey Barton,
has been on his Twitta page again. He once promised on there that he would "I will tell all when
the time is right." Earlier today on his Twitter page, he made a series of Tweets, saying first,
somewhat mysteriously: [.
Newcastle United have had a trying summer both on and off the pitch but how does that bode for the
season ahead? It's a fine old kettle of fish isn't it? This pre-season, that is. We've had some
poor results on the pitch and the various missives from people like Nolan, Barton and Enrique have
Newcastle United midfielder Cheik Tiote goes into the record books, although it only gives Alan
Pardew a headache. It seems that Cheik Tiote's yellow card for tripping Matt Derbyshire on Saturday
has gained him a Premier League record. He joins Robbie Savage and Mark Hughes on 14 bookings for
the season, which is apparently the [.
On the eve of Newcastle United's game with Manchester United on Tuesday evening, manager, Alan
Pardew has issued a public warning to midfielder, Cheick Tiote, that he must not be "overzealous"
against the so called 'Red Devils'. Tiote does indeed have a somewhat poor disciplinary record
having picked up some 10 yellow cards, and a [.
The F.A. anouunced today that Newcastle's United's appeal on behalf of the club's defensive
midfielder, Cheik Tiote, has been rejected, and that a ban for Newcastle's next three games stands.
This means that the Ivory Coast player, who has rapidly become part of the essential fabric of the
club's first team as defensive cover for [.
Newcastle have had a habit of picking up yellow cards this season. In fact indiscipline has
arguably played a large part in our season to date. A quick glance at the 'Fair Play' table should
tell us all we need to know. It doesn't make for pretty reading, but Newcastle have racked up 45
yellow cards [.
Newcastle United manager, Chris Hughton has recently come out and defended his team's disciplinary
record in the wake of three suspensions of major players, namely, Joey Barton for a crafty dig at
Blackburn's Morten Gamst Pedersen, Fabricio Coloccini for an elbow in in the face of Bolton's Johan
Elmander, and finally, Mike Williamson for [.
As a striker, young Nile Ranger hasn't been the best at hitting the target so on that logic I think
this is a story that has been blown way out of proportion. When he shoots, he often misses, gaining
him the appropriately affectionate nickname of "Nil Ranger". Jokes aside, the above is a new
It is being reported that The FA are poised to take more action against Joey Barton, this time for
an alleged obscene gesture during the Liverpool match. The Express claims that The FA are awaiting
the match report from referee Lee Mason before deciding if any more action is taken. If Lee Mason
saw the incident, [.
