Newcastle vs. Arsenal – Match Banter!

Tiote the starfish.
Tiote: Can't touch this.
An early return for Arsene Wenger’s side after our last meeting ended up, deservedly, with a share of the spoils after Newcastle came back from 4 goals down – a first in Premier League history.

A late 5:30PM kick off for the Toon after an eventful first day of football. Bolton sit at the top of the table after trouncing newly promoted Queens Park Rangers 4-0, Wolves sit in second place after a 2-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers, followed by Liverpool, Norwich, Sunderland and Wigan – all of which scoring 1 goal a piece while Aston Villa and Fulham drew without finding the back of the net.

As it stands, Newcastle stand 14th in the league while Blackburn and QPR opening their season in the relegation zone. (more…)


Leicester City v Newcastle – Match Banter!

Mags poised to outfox The Foxes?
Mags poised to outfox The Foxes?
Following a frenetic few days in the transfer window where we’ve seen more new players than you can shake a corner flag at, we get now get chance to see the buggers play. New loan signings Fitz Hall from QPR and Patrick Van Aanholt on loan from Chelsea, are in contention for a place in the first eigheen. Though the young Dutch left back has a good chance of starting, as Tamas Kadar is more comfortable in the middle.

Hall is likely to make the bench with Ryan Taylor expected to return to his more favoured right back berth. Expect Mike Willliamson to start again after a solid debut, following his protracted move from Portsmouth. Recent signing Wayne Routledge could be on the bench again, though we’re crying out for his pace.

Like yours truly, not all Toon fans are lucky enough to be there, although .org’s toonsy will be in attendance. More chance though for Sky viewers and bloggers to see the new boys, with the game being beamed out live on Sky Sports 1, kick off at 5.20pm. If anyone can find radio, video links etc to the game for people who don’t have it, I’m sure that would be appreciated. As ever, this can be the place to come together during the match and p*ss and moan, as we usually do. (more…)


Toon v Crystal Palace match banter!

A return to winning ways tonight?
A return to winning ways tonight?
Tonight sees a cash strapped Crystal Palace making the long journey to St James’s Park.

With all kinds of gossip surrounding the London club regarding Administration. Another source of gossip is their very talented young winger, Victor Moses, who has been the subject of much transfer speculation as the club seek to balance their books. The word going around is that he will almost certainly NOT be playing in tonight’s match, by order of the Administrator, probably for fear of injury.

As for ‘wor lads, of course much of the gossip will surround our two new arrivals, central defender, ‘Big’ Mike (not that one) Williamson and fleet footed flanker, Wayne Routledge. Will they take their bows before the evening is over? Of course, the other big question is, will Newcastle make a return to winning ways after the weekend ref fiasco against West Brom?

For more background on the game, check out the excellent match preview by Geordie Deb. A full match report by NUFC Blog’s very own man in Level Seven, Bowburnmag, will no doubt make it slow winding way on to these pages in the fullness of time too. (more…)


Newcastle v Derby – match banter!

Following on from the previous games threads, I thought it would be a good idea to put up another article for the Derby game, that you can just use for the match banter. Once again, yours truly will be in attendance but not all Toon fans are lucky enough to be there..

Of course the game is on Sky Sports but as not all posters are based in the UK, it might not be possible to for them to watch directly. So if anyone can find radio, video links etc to the game for people who don’t have it, I’m sure that would be appreciated. As ever, this can be the place to come together during the match and p*ss and moan, as we usually do. Squad news is on the preview article but hopefully we’ll get line-ups on here before the start.

Once again, yours truly will be in attendance but not all Toon fans are lucky enough to be there, even if the expectation is that The Championship attendance record will be smashed by today’s Tyne-Tees derby.

Of course the game is on BBC but as not all posters are based in the UK, it might not be possible to for them to watch directly. So if anyone can find radio, video links etc to the game for people who don’t have it, I’m sure that would be appreciated.
