The Sunday news round-up.

With news in short supply today, I thought it was perhaps best to round-up all the news into one handy article which will, hopefully, cover all the bases. Understandably, most of the press are focusing on the defeat to Stevenage yesterday, which was always going to happen. I won’t go into it too much, but it is the least [...]

Is it really that bad?

As giant killings go, Newcastle’s defeat at the hands of Stevenage yesterday is up there with the best of them. It has of course been eclipsed by greater achievements in the past, and it will be eclipsed again in the future, but it didn’t feel like that as the final whistle blew at Broadhall Way yesterday evening. Embarrasing? Yes. [...]

Newcastle set to sign Karim Ziani?

I’d like to say that Newcastle could feel aggrieved about the result but, as the opening few words [...]

Game on! Stevenage v Newcastle.

It’s FA Cup time again as the competition starts to hot up with the introduction of the big boys from The Championship and Premier League.

League One and Two sides were [...]

Of course, the real competition has been going on for months now, and some teams that have made the 3rd round will have played as many as 15 matches to get their chance to play the [...]

Five more wins should see us safe.

The 5-0 victory over West Ham on Wednesday evening was a good result, but before expectations start to rise again I feel it is only fair to point out that the win was only worth three points. This has left us sitting in a very respectable 8th place in the table having played 21 matches and amassing 28 points [...]
