New stuff on the way!
Dear readers, just thought I’d take some time to let you all know, especially you regular readers out there, what’s happening with the site.

As you may have realised, there have been less blogs than usual over the last few months, and no prediction competition for the first half of this season too. My colleague, Hugh, was in charge of the prediction competition and has been busy working hard for the last few months. Because the prediction competition we run on this site is quite time consuming to set up and run, I’ve been busy too, and there have also been alot of other things besides just writing the blogs which need catching up on, I decided to leave it this time. However, I havent discounted the possibilty of running a second competition later in the season IF enough people are interested. Sorry about that! (more…)

NUFC Blog and tits - What more could you ask for?
This week’s edition of the gentleman breast lover’s journal of record, “ZOO” magazine, is carrying their “Massive team by team guide” for the forthcoming Premiership season.

When it came to Newcastle United, of course, it goes without saying that they came to NUFC Blog first to get a fan’s viewpoint of how our season will go.

As my colleague Hugh is away from the blog being a full time indentured geek at the moment, sadly, it was down to me to answer questions such as:

Player to watch?

New signing you’re most excited about?

Player you’d happily drive out of your club?

Premiership team you secretly admire?

Worst away day? (more…)

Cisse and Ben Arfa signed photo competition: The answers, the winners!

Who are the winners?
Well, it time to give the answers for our latest competiton and announce the winners. Before I do, please accept my apologies for the slight delay in posting this.

The biggest hurdle for most who entered the competition, so much so that I began to doubt my self and all the statistical data I used (including the Premiership’s “OPTA” stats and several others) was the question about Papiss Cisse’s “minutes per goal scored” ratio. Lots of you got all the other answers correct but this seemed to be the real stumbling block.

Anyway, without further ado, here are the questions again, this time with the answers:

Last chance to win signed Cisse and Ben Arfa photos!

Cisse and Ben Arfa signed photos.
Up for grabs this week!
Welcome to the second and final part of our latest competition to win a 16″ x 12″ signed photo of Papiss Cisse, and a 12″ x 8″ signed photo of Hatem Ben Arfa. Both are genuine, hand signed photos signed by the players themselves and would look great on any Toon fan’s wall!

Before we get to the second set of questions, the first part is here, but I will also repeat the first questions below, as well as rules of the competition.

Please note! Someone entered the answers for the first three questions on Papiss Cisse in the comments section of the last post (though one was actually incorrect, I won’t say which one!) so I’ve added another. Before I get to the second part (on Hatem Ben Arfa) here are the first four questions again. (more…)
