This afternoon sees the third titanic encounter between the two Championship heavyweights of Newcastle United and West Brom. With the two previous encounters being very tight draws, it will be a very tough game to call.

As far as team news goes, George Caulkin has been reporting in the Times that Steven Taylor has suffered knee ligament damage from the last game with the Baggies, and may be out for the rest of the season, however this story has not been subtantiated at the time of writing. Danny Simpson is also highly doubtful after picking up an ankle knock too. Striker, Peter Lovenkrands will also be out of the squad after travelling to Denmark twice in the wake of his father’s death. Ryan Taylor and Tamas Kadar will probably step in if Steven Taylor and Danny Simpson are out of the game, with substitute keeper, Tim Krul looking for a bit of practice in between the sticks too.

For more details on the game, check out Geordie Deb’s excellent match preview on the game. If you have any links for audio coverage etc, please feel free to post them. (more…)

Tonight sees the first of two epic encounters with a team that are seen in many quarters as Newcastle United’s biggest rivals in the Championship, since the sad decline of our less fortunate neighbours in the city of smog.

In the run up to the match, manager, Chris Hughton has said he sees the game as a chance for his Toon lads to “make a statement” adding:

“The fact that West Brom are so close to us, yes, it’s probably the biggest game.”

NUFC Blog’s Geordie Deb has already written a very good match preview for the game, and there will, of course, be a full match report to follow.

If you have any good links for match coverage etc for those who aren’t travelling to the game, please feel free to post them.

Howay the Lads!
