Doncaster Rovers v Newcastle United – A Newcastle fan’s away guide.

Donny dog has his day.

Donny dog has his day.

A quick turn around from Saturday see’s Newcastle United travel to Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday evening in yet another crucial Championship clash. The town of Doncaster has featured pretty heavily in two of Newcastle’s most successful era’s. Former player and manager, Kevin Keegan was born in Doncaster and Joe Harvey was born on the outskirts of the city. That is unfortunately in our glorious past now, and this trip to Doncaster takes on a whole new significance as Newcastle seek 3 points to aid in their efforts to secure immediate promotion back to the Premier League.

As away trips go it’s ideal for a weekday evening, measuring in at about 120 miles. It’s also pretty straight forward to get to. As ever it’s down the A1(M) until you meet up with the M18. Head eastbound on the M18 for about a mile and leave at J3 (A6182). The ground is signposted from the motorway but in case you miss them, follow the A6182 into Doncaster, go straight over the first island, take the 2nd exit at the second island, and take the 3rd exit at the third island. Easy.

Parking

There is a car park at the ground although it can only hold 1,000 cars so on busy match days it can fill up pretty quickly. All around the ground are industrial units that offer parking and if you get there early enough you may even find yourself some street parking. Don’t park in the Lakeside shopping area though as this will be patrolled by traffic officers.

Pre-match pint.

Being a new ground situated on the outskirts of the city, there aren’t really many pubs nearby. There is a Beefeater on the shopping park and a Holiday Inn which you’ll see as you leave the motorway. Other than that, the city centre is about a 20-30 minute walk away or you can just enjoy a pint inside the ground.

A bit to eat?

Again there isn’t much. The Beefeater I pointed out above as well as some fast food outlets on the shopping park are about all your going to get outside of the ground. Otherwise it’s a case of grabbing a pie inside the ground.

There really isn’t much else to say about going to Doncaster. I was working there last week so went and had a quick drive around to see what was going on and there isn’t much, unless you have a penchant for trains! There should be around 3,000 Newcastle fans there on the night and let’s hope the team can give them, and all of us for that matter, something to be happy about.

Howay the lads!

    We need to get at Donny from the off, they are a footballing side like Swansea so its no good allowing them too much time on the ball as we have done in many an away game this season.
    Chron is reporting Barton is back in the squad for this game, finger crossed on that one.

  2. 2

    didnt we get hammered last time we played there?? and also whats up with smudge… this seems to be a mistery foot thing he has going on!

  3. 3

    i think another draw at best unless we go all out for the win. i think it will be five through the mid field again with both barton and nolan and guthrie playing. nolan in the hole i guess behind carrol. we simply cant play Best – he is shit.

    avatar Big Willy says:

    I was expecting Barton to start against (or at least get onto the pitch) against Bristol, so it wouldn’t be a big surprise the team you are suggesting Craig. Best hasn’t impressed us spectators but I think he is what is often referred to as a footballers footballer, doesnt look to us as if he is doing much but is given other players time and space with his efforts. that might sound a bit crap but I think you know what I am saying, I hope!!
    I think we should be able to beat them, we just have to make sure we don’t concede early daft goals again.

    Craig we just havn’t seen the best of Best :lol:

    BBB I agree and have been saying for most of the season there is only a few teams that we should be happy to set up for a draw, the rest we should be gunning for a win and not sitting back and letting them attack us hoping for the chance that we might get a long ball and the chance to nick the game.
    I believe in most games in the CCC the best form of defence is attack ;)

    Leon Best’s Wiki page has already been regularly vandalised sinced he joined Newcastle. It really is a shame about the doylums who are ruining the reputation of Newcastle United and making us all look so nasty, resentful and vindictive.

  9. 9

    CH has already said abrton is in team tmw.. just wonder if he will start him. you would have to go with jonas, guthrie, baton, routledge through middle with nolan in hole and carroll up front, the back kinda picks itself at the minute as we have no-one left baxck there.

  10. 10

    yeah i feel sorry or best but the bottom line is, he isnt doing the buisness is he. i really dont know why we really bought the lad. in buying him has it closed a door to us buying a real striker if we go up???

  11. 11
    avatar jay jay says:

    I haven’t been impressed with best, but I doubt he’s been impressed with himself so far, it can take time for players to settle in at a new club and giving the lad abuse is not going to help him or our reputation as supporters. If we are not going to lure players to the club with offering them massive wages like in the past then we have to make players see that it is a club where they can settle and feel at home and have the support of the club and it’s supporters. If we do sign some promising youngsters how are they going to feel when we are giving them grief for a slow start or taking time to adapt. I would only give players serious stick if they done something which I consider to be disrespectful to the club or it’s history or the city itself like dyer or jenas. Or players who claim massive wages despite being in their 50s like butt.

    Not that any of you are interested but I just had a two hour lecture on Milton’s Paradise Lost; I feel mentally battered and could do with some decent banter to satisfactorily stimulate the cognative faculties! Who would everyone’s top (realistic) transfer target for the summer be then? And how about a team for tomorrow?

    avatar devonmag says:

    I’ll do my best Toonsy but I’m feckin shattered! O’Hara at the mo is my ideal transfer target too- I also like the fact that Houghton seems to have made him his number one summer target. It’d be a very, very sensible buy. I know a lot of people dissaprove as well, but personally I’m all for overseas players coming to the toon. The main reason these buys have cocked up in the past is because they were panic, deadline day buys with extremely limited thought put into them. Graham Carr seems to be the real deal; if he’s out looking at players already then we should be in a good position by summer. Certainly beats youtube scouting eh?

    jay jay,aye m8 hes young,has some pace and he will put his foot in, canny left that can pick a pass,my only worry is how much will they ask for him? my guess is 3mil will we pay that?

    avatar georgio says:

    CH needs to hold his hand up and admit it. He made a mistake with Best. The guy is just not good enough. I can’t think of one good feature of his game – makes Shola look like Pele. I don’t like knocking Toon players but what is doing my head in is that playing Best is denying Ranger valuable playing time/development. That’s time he may not get much of next season and then what?

  22. 22
    avatar Big Willy says:

    DevonMag, So how would you relate Milton’s epic poem to the viscitudes of the recent history of the Toon, has God cast us out do you think? :)

    I am currently trying to write a very short article about Ki and the cardiovasular system and my brain is hurting as well. :)

    As for new players I would agree with Toonsy (or was it Workys) earlier comments that we will be linked with a whole plethora of prospective buys with the possible difference this year (I hope) that some are in the pipeline and will be tailored to our needs. I see Skelbred as one actuall this time around.

  23. 23
    avatar Johno Toon says:

    My top realistic target for next season would be Kevin Doyle, he has a fantastic work rate , quick good with both feet good header of the ball and with the right service I think he would score goals

    I was very unsure about Leon best when we first signed him after watching him for Ireland a couple times but he does look like he is getting better and he was unluck sat not to score

  24. 24
    avatar devonmag says:

    Haha Big Willy, were I to relate it to the vicissitudes of the toon in recent years, I’d say that we were indeed cast out by God (metaphorically represented in our departure from the premier league) but that this in fact served, conversely, as a beneficiary to our great cause, as, as the Devil so shrewdly points out, ‘it is better to rule in Hell, than to serve in Heaven.’ Ergo; our exploits in the championship this year as a ‘big fish’ have invigorated the team with a reknewed sense of desire and a camaradarie that was previously lacking, which, in the premiership (heaven) we would not have been so profusely subjected to!

  25. 25
    avatar CLiNT FLiCK says:

    Well the press haven’t exactly got many of our recent signings right, have they?
    They’re out of the loop & rightly so, about time.

    Icedog you could say the same about Modric but he seems to cope. Thought it was funny the other week where he was trying to con the ref cos a bigger player was picking on him.

  31. 31
    avatar devonmag says:

    Haha nah I’d never relate Ashley to Satan as I actually quite like Satan’s role in Paradise Lost; he’s pro knowledge, enlightenment, sex, and he profusely rejects dogma for the sake of dogma. Mike Ashley’s far too thick to be assigned such a role!
    This is definitely before the cider! And mis-spelling vicissitudes is definitely permissable!

    As for Skjelbred, I’ve actually gone off the idea of signing him quite a lot since summer; I feel the CM role is well filled and have prefered our other mentioned targets for creative center mid, RE O’Hara and Cabaye. One player I really like the look of that we’ve been linked with is that Hernandez chap from Valencia, nice and young and a big prospect, not unreasonable either seeing as Valencia are a selling club and he’s not quite good enough for top European sides. Could be well worth a punt I’d say…

    Kadar to start tomorrow as well, I think he’s such a big prospect every time I’ve seen him he looks so composed for one so young; I’d rather see him gettting game time than one size, who will inevitably by returning to QPR anyway

    free scoring to be honest mate I think he just got pissed off with the constant persecution from certain bloggers (represented largely in his surprisingly bitter signing off message) and then after a while started to miss the whole thing so fired it up again un-announced. No disrespect to this blog but it’s basically comprehensively taken the mantle of best toon blog on the net straight from ed’s grasp lol, deep down I reckon he regrets ever cancelling his because it’s lost a huge amount of followers now.

    “worky what’s been going on on his wiki page mate I can’t find anything derrogatory at the mo?”

    That’s because myself and other Wiki editors keep clearing up the vandalism, Devonmag. His name had been changed throughout the article to “Leon WORST”, It was stated in there (without any sources) that Newcastle United supporters had recently voted him the worst signing in Newcastle United’s history and more. If I were a footballer nowadays, I wouldn’t sign for Newcastle unless I was paid way over the odds. It just isn’t worth the grief you get if you have one or two below par games, or don’t settle down straight away.

    Roy, lol I don’t know mate but I suppose it could well be!

    And free scoring, this blog is, I think, without question better. Whilst Ed’s a bit of a legend, his ‘journalism,’ as it were, is seriously suspect. I think his age shines though quite a lot (no disrespect to Ice and other older bloggers!) and he developed quite a bad habbit of tailoring headlines to get more hits- he sort of went a bit ‘redtop’ really. You get a good blend of reasoned articles on this site as well as good banter and craic to match.

    Half the problems with Ed’s blog are that he posts so much, you no sooner post a comment and there’s anoth 3 posts so its quite hard to get any banter going.

    Still I appreciate his work and still go on there, however this blog is better for banter and worky kicks off any idiots fairly quickly

    ultimately, this blogs inception was due to the fact Ed stated he was shutting his down, surprised he reopened it but the more the better in my opinion, he has def lost a lot of people who post comments and they aren’t all on here so god knows where they went!

    1-2 to the toon tomoz – we can’t seem to keep clean sheets away these days

    We have done that even more shamelessly I’m afraid, Devon. I still remember Bowburn’s story about us chasing “Raul”. He didn’t say which Raul it was in the title though. It was one the most well read ‘blogs on here. :-)

    avatar Free Scoring Smudge says:

    This blog may cite rumors, but Ed seemed to believe them. Soon after the Daily Mail had written that we were looking at a player, then Ed was labeling them a target. Here, any speculation is usually a qualified as such.

    Not that I want to criticize Ed to much, I really appreciated his work. Being a toon fan in the states is not easy, and Ed clearly felt the same frustration.

    One observation from the 6 or 7 matches I’ve been able to see from over here: Enrique stands out head and shoulders above the competition in this league. He beats defenders with such ease, and sides typically abandon attacks down the right within the first 20 minutes or so. His pace protects Colo, which makes me wonder why Fab was played next to the RB last season. Why play your two quickest defenders (Basssong and Enrique) next to each other?

    avatar Ross says:

    The only really nifty thing i’ve seen with other blogs is an option to tag comments you’ve already read, and then go to a quickview page of all recent articles posted with a ticker that shows you how many comments have been posted since, eg the comments you haven’t read. I’m not in any way clued up about how blogs etc work so I imagine this could be something unachievable? Lol

    in all fairness though Worky that blog ardently accepted the fact that the headline was a bit of a laugh, whereas Ed, as someone previously mentioned, even seemed to believe his own headlines!

    I love how he refused to accept the reason Brad Inman was nicknamed ‘Kaka’ is because he looks like him, not because of his playing style! Hehe, every time it’s pointed out he just blanks it and writes the same stuff in his next blog, ‘dubbed so because he looks like the Brazilian superstar and also becuase he plays a lot like him too’

    Talking about candy, there was a brand of toffee, believe it was called Elvet, a creamy nut filled toffee, that was sold @ a sweet shop in the Grainger Market, most delicious stuff.

    jay jay and toonsy I’m younger than both of you but I remember nerds and umbungo, although I never drank the latter as for some inexplicable reason it gave me crippling headaches! Donny will be tough, make no mistake, but I think the lads have 1st place firmly in their sights so I’ll go for a hard-fought 2-3 to us, an exciting game for the neautral!

    Well putting you down is not exactly how i would describe it Big Dave, admonish would be more to the point.

    Chuck I would say admonish is what an adult would do to a naughty child. I dont have time to check what you said now but at the time I thought it was extremly ignorant but if thats what rocks your boat so be it.
    Catch you’s lata lads

    i think we should go with 5 in midfield the same plus barton.carrol on his own. after saturday away i think we were to weak in central midfield why does nolan always trys to spin with 2 players on him and loses the ball.he seems to run faster going forward then back.i said we would win easy on saturday if routledge jonas and enrique played with out them we would have lost but we didnt win either. With routledge i think we have won the pools some1 who could make us good if he plays and stays fit he seems in this league far to good and his final ball setting up chances is spot on. which cant be said for prem players can he do it in the prem if he can good days for us then bad lads.

    avatar CLiNT FLiCK says:

    The reason our mid got overrun on satda, was because we had no DM on the pitch. Both Nolan & Guthrie are forward thinking mids.
    Probably shoulda had a slightly less attacking form.

  105. 105
    avatar Chuck says:

    So far we have been linked to one Portugese, two french and i believe a Spaniard n a Uruguayan.
    From reports they all appear to be the best thing since sliced bread and players we would be able to pick up cheaply.
    Just wondering how many more of these great finds we will be linked with, before our season in the PL begins.

    I had tooth knocked out once for saying Kevin Phillips was sh*t and telling a mackem that they needed a new manager.

    Count yerself lucky :)

    Chuck,
    with regard to the press-mongs, i just meant it’s prob all press BS mate & they’re doing what they always do, in so far as they like to talk players up, whilst trying to use certain clubs to drum up speculation.

    On the other thig: i.e. Ket.
    Worky has a canny site linked for such confection.
    So y’didn’t offend me mate, i was just commenting.

    “On the other thig: i.e. Ket.”

    It’s a long time since I’ve heard that word referring to sweets, Clint. Down here in London, it’s an animal tranquiliser that gets you completely smashed.

    Where are you in London, Clint?

    I’ve been trying to teach my friends the difference between a Geordie accent and a Mackem accent.

    avatar Big Dave says:

    Chuck after considering it for a while I will except ;)
    Icedog I am going for a 2-1 win for us. But again if we score early who knows, I just have a feeling we will go a goal down before we wake up. I know ur not keen but I hope Joey starts ;) Going back to what someone said earlier I think Best is trying to hard and maybe if he relaxed a bit he might score, but I know its wrong of me I still dont think he is what we need but that is maybe just me as I blame him for holding Ranger back

    No problem JayJay, I’d have been surprised if you had meant me, just thought I’d clarify it though.
