Party time at Home Park last night.
Scenes of delerium dominated Home Park in Plymouth last night as Newcastle finally achieved enough points to be crowned champions after last nights 2-0 victory.

There was no trophy presentation last night, that will come against Ipswich on Saturday in front of a packed out St James’ Park. Credit must go to the guy working the Plymouth PA system as he belted out a plethora of songs related to Newcastle United after the final whistle. It was a bit surprising given that the home side had just been relegated but it was welcomed with open arms by some away fan’s who made their way onto the pitch to join the players in celebration. Plymouth kicked off the hospitality with a banner saying “Congratulations Newcastle from the Green Army” greeting the players as they emerged from the tunnel before kick-off. I have to say that after last night I hope they can bounce straight back up after relegation and I can wholeheartedly say that I will be looking out for their results from now on. A proper club, with proper fan’s, and if they stick by Paul Mariner and John Carver they will be fine. (more…)

King Kevin Nolan in tune with The Toon.

It’s judgement day for Newcastle United today as they face the very real prospect of becoming champions by this evening. If West Brom fail to beat Middlesbrough in the 5:15pm kick-off at The Hawthorns then we will be confirmed as champions.

It’s no less than the players deserve either as questions have continually been asked of them by critics, press and opposing teams. All questions have been answered where they should be, on the pitch, and part of that can be attributed to players such as Kevin Nolan who have stuck their head above the parapet, rolled up their sleeves, stood up and been counted or any other number of cliche’s that can be used. In fact Kevin Nolan has become quite the face of Newcastle United recently, not only for his goal scoring exploits and application on the pitch, but also for his comments and leadership off it. Some of his goals this season have been vital and without them we would not be in the position we find ourselves in today. Leading by example, something not seen since the days when Alan Shearer or Scott Parker donned the black & white stripes with pride and sadly something we missed so badly in our hour of need last season.
