Newcastle United Season Review 2011/12.
Live the best bits of last season all over again!
In the wake of our recent win an NUFC away shirt competition, won by site user “DarthBroon,” we are now having another one of our close season competitions in the pause between our epic, twice a season prediction competitions.

This time, the prize will be the latest “Newcastle United Season Review 2011/12” DVD, and as you will know yourselves from watching the games last season, it is great viewing. Certainly far better than the 2008/9 edition anyway!

Delight once again in the antics (and goals) from Hatem Ben Arfa, Demba Ba, Papiss Cisse and the rest of the gang in what turned out to be our best season for some time on the pitch. What better to get yourself revved up for our Euro journey next season?

Anyway, here’s the rules and such:

As with our usual competitions, the prize is only open to registered users of the site for security reasons (we wouldn’t want anyone else nicking your prize!), but if you aren’t yet a registered member, never fear! It only takes seconds to join. Just click on the “Register” link in the login section of the site (right hand side) and follow the instructions from there.

Then, all you have to do is answer the fairly simple question below and when you’ve done this, simply post the answer to us along with your username on the site using our contact message form.

So, without further ado, here is the question!

What was David Ginola’s shirt number at Newcastle United, and who took it over after he left?

When the competition is over, I will put the ones with correct answers into my bucket, then close my eyes and select the winner at random. We will then announce the winner, along with the answers in a second post in a few days. If it’s you, you can then send us your delivery name, delivery address, your username (again). For security purposes, please use the same e.mail address as the one you used to answer the questions.

The deadline for receiving receiving answers is midnight on Sunday, 24th June.

Good luck!

  1. maze, that Luuk De Jong article is 3 days out of date – rumours and make-believe can change a lot in that time ;)

    There’s also rumours we’re stalking John Guidetti – Man City’s 20 year-old scoring sensation who’s had success on loan – but prob wud just be a loan deal for us, and therefore unlikely…

    Or, Alvaro Morata – 19 year-old 6’3″ Real Madrid striker…

    Plus Leon Best is said to be sold to Blackburn for 2m…

  2. Worky man, you’re stuck in the ’90s. Ask a question about last year and I might knaa the answer, although I wouldn’t be able to play the DVD :)

  3. Since that De Jong story there’s been a another story saying there hasn’t been a bid, that Schteve McClaren has said it’s nowhere near enough and so on. They’re all just stories where they “understand” though, so it could be bollocks. Same with Best so far.

    There was more evidence of a bid for Debuchy, but typically, it was around half his true worth and Lille laughed at it.

    The stories about Ben Arfa spitting his dummy out for being substituted against the Swedes are highly exagerrated.

  4. GS, you’d probably need to have a multi region DVD player to play that DVD over there. The US is region 1 and the DVD is region 2. I’ve put the list of countries where the DVD is compatible (Europe, Middle East and the Arctic, roughly)

    I’ll do something that works in the US next time. ;-)

  5. Oh wow I didn’t read the date of it because it came in the top of my news feed. Excellent.

  6. I would keep Best. The problem is that as back up he is often injured, but for 2mil why sell?

    Does anybody know if De Jong is any good?

    “Does anybody know if De Jong is any good?”

    Yes, he is a good player, GS. Very roughly, he’s a good old fashioned big lad centre forward, but he also has other qualities, ie he’s quite good on the ball technically and can fit in on the side of a front three too, or as a second striker etc.

    “How do i register for the site pls”

    Jack, near the top right had side of the site, you should see a “register” link. Just click on that, fill out your information and then click “submit” or “register.”

    Let me know if you have any more problems.

    ps: I’ve got your entry now and it’s in the folder with the others, Jack. Nee botha!

  9. GS, i also like Best, think he’s got a delicate touch and a poachers instinct, but he’s not the quickest out the blocks and he must be about 29 yrs old now…

    Does he really offer more than Sammy Am?

  10. Milner says:
    June 21, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    “and he must be about 29 yrs old now…”

    Milner, Best’s a big lad who looks a bit older than he is. He was fairly young when we got him and he’s only about 25 now.

  11. Morning all – sorry about my lack of posts but I’ve been more like Supergrumpy recently, I’ve even avoided the euros on TV, just can’t get interested in them.

    All this transfer speculation is of course hot air – as it always is. But I do note most of it is about decent players coming in rather than our stars leaving, which is progress.

    The continentals have of course learned about our buying tactics (they’re not stupid) and it’s unlikely we’ll get decent players for peanuts anymore (unless it’s a final day move) – so this £4m bid for Debuchy seems so pointless I suspect that it was not serious (more like taking the p1ss).

    £6-8m is now a reasonable bid for a decent player and £12m for De Jong looks better.

    Still, as they said on Supercar – Anything can happen in the next half hour!

    “Morning all – sorry about my lack of posts but I’ve been more like Supergrumpy recently,”

    Same here, Supermac, and sorry about my lack of posts too. Real life has finally caught up with me.

    As for the rest, nothing ever lasts forever. Reality will catch up with Newcastle United too.

  13. Workyticket …..i only use this site on my phone n just cant seem to find the register part of site.not sure if i have already done it awhile ago or not.

    On Besty front tho,surely we have to keep him wiv a very important n demanding season ahead of us,regardless if we sign De Jong,whom i think is a good player with a bright future ahead.but most importantly we must have cover and compition in all positions.

    “Workyticket …..i only use this site on my phone n just cant seem to find the register part of site.not sure if i have already done it awhile ago or not.”

    Ahhh! I see now, Jack. If you’re only using the stripped down basic mobile site, the registration should be right at the bottom of the page. Sorry about that.

    “Reus!!! Buy him NUFC.”

    I’ve been watching him myself, GS, but he’d be too dear. He’d be £15 million+.

  16. We need to follow the germans blue print ov every pro club having an academy.that way we should produce more & better talent.also kids need to get off there playstations n xboxs,grab a ball,chuck there jumpers doon for posts n have a kick aboot more often

  17. Worky @24: Shows you that Dortmund aren’t going away. That stadium and their fans are amazing.

  18. Good points, Jack.

    For Newcastle, we were supposed to be putting far more in that direction since the days of the three wise monkeys (Wise, Vetere and Jimenez). There’s a big thing gannin’ on now, with Newcastle and other teams with the new “EPPP” (Elite Player Performance Plan), which Newcastle are busy trying to get into as an “elite” club who can take bairns into it’s Academy who come from more than 90 minutes away from the club. There’s been alot of controversy about that though because it will take the select band of elite clubs at the top, the “haves” even further away from the rest who won’t make it, the “have nots.” In other words, it will enable the bigger clubs to snatch even more of the most talented young players from under the noses of the smaller ones and further damage the “grassroots” of the game.

    Outside of the club from the city where I was born, one of my favourite clubs has always been Ajax, who’s legendary academy has produced many of the greatest players ever to kick a football. of course, people rave about Barcelona’s academy system nowadays, but they imported Ajax over to Catalonia, basically, when Ajax won the European Cup three times in a row in the early seventies, and shaped the modern game we see today with a bunch of local lads from Amsterdam.

    “Worky @24: Shows you that Dortmund aren’t going away. That stadium and their fans are amazing.”

    GS, Aye, but Dortmund have always been one of the big German clubs though. Probably the second one after Bayern Munich. Don’t know if it’s still true, but at one stage thay had the highest average attendance of any club, including the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid. They’re one of only three German clubs (Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Hamburg) to have won the European Cup / Champions League.

  20. France – Spain, bugger, it can’t get much better than that with Yohan and hopefully Hatem playing.

    The Germans were massive yesterday.

    “The Germans were massive yesterday.”

    They eat alot of sausage, potatoes and cabbage and drink alot and beer too, GS. That probably explains it. :-)
