It has been “reported” by several frauds in the media, as well as several lazy copy and paste style blogs that James Perch is set to leave Newcastle United. It all started around a month ago on the 2nd June with a short piece by Alan Nixon in the Mirror. It read: “Newcastle prepare to [...]

NUFC Season Review – Part Two. The end of the season is finally upon us. A season in which defied all expectations.

Newcastle United “Player of the Season” Vote: 1) Defenders / Utility Players

Posted May 15th, 2012 by CLiNT FLiCK | 24 Comments

As we have reached the season’s end, I’m going to jump in and do a little assessment of the players, culminating in a vote for your Newcastle United “Player of the season”. There have been quite a few stand out performers and stand out performances this term. Some were almost anticipated, others almost definitely weren’t. [...]

Who has been Newcastle United’s best Premiership signing?

Posted May 12th, 2012 by workyticket | 50 Comments

Looking back over Newcastle United’s last two seasons since we were promoted from the Championship, one thing it’s hard to argue with is that most of the club’s major signings have been a success.

It is certainly fitting of Newcastle’s unexpectedly successful season that, on the night of the 12th March, after a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates, they trailed the 4th placed Gunners by eight points. It looked like the wheels had come off the North East bandwagon and they would slip into the mid-table mediocrity [...]

Toon £4m deal for Douglas this summer?

Posted April 11th, 2012 by Hugh de Payen | 62 Comments

The Dutch press appears to offer further suggestions that FC Twente’s Douglas is bound for Newcastle United this summer, although perhaps the most pertinent question is whether or not we lose any of our current stars this summer too. Further to an article I posted last week about Newcastle’s interest in FC Twente’s Douglas Franco [...]

Posted April 9th, 2012 by CLiNT FLiCK | 85 Comments

Bolton rolled into Toon on the back of a bit of a kicking at the hands of the improving Fulham, but with a trio of wins in front of that, it was always going to be a tricky fixture and so it was going to be down to who wanted it more. Patience was the order [...]
