• Newcastle 4-1 Blackpool

    The second last home game of the season saw Blackpool come to St James Park, with a lot of support in the bright orange shirts. Taking at least 3,000 tickets. With a chance of still making the play-offs we were half expecting this to be a slightly more difficult game but in the end that wasn’t […]

  • We are Premier League!!!

    Monday night saw Sheffield United come to St James Park for a 7:45pm kick off on Easter Monday . . . but promotion was already clinched at about 7pm thanks to a boring goal less draw between Forest and Cardiff. Which I watched with many other Toon fans in Shearer’s Bar. When the final whistle […]

  • 1 point away from the Premier League

    We could have been promoted yesterday with a win over Peterborough . . . which we got in what seemed like a tougher game than everyone anticipated. But it was not meant to be with Nottingham Forest spoiling the would be party by getting a draw against Bristol City. But this now leaves the Toon just […]

  • Whitley Bay 3-2 Barwell – FA Vase Semi Final (2nd Leg) 6-5 agg

    Today I went to Hillheads Park for the second leg of the FA Vase in which Whitley Bay were at home again Barwell. Last week the first leg finished 3-3 after Whitley came back from being 3-1 down to pull out a draw. Just over 2,700 turned out to support Whitley today with quite a few supporters […]

  • Sunderland 4-0 Bolton

    Sunderland went into this game having not won for 14 previous league games, the pressure was starting to mount on Steve Bruce’s side as they slowly got dragged into the relegation scrap which did not look likely after the great start to the season. But suddenly they started losing points and just not being able to […]

  • Newcastle 6 – 1 Barnsley

    Back to St James Park after a 2-1 away victory over Watford last weekend. So before the game I decided to put some daft bets on . . . or what seemed daft before the eventual score line. I went for 4-0 to the Toon. I even took Jose Enrique as the first goal scorer […]

  • New England Away Shirt 2010/2012

    The new England away shirt was released on Wednesday very much modelled and based on the 1966 World Cup winning red shirt. I really liked the shirt so bought it! I get my money back if England win the World Cup . . . so another reason to scream “come on England”. But not only […]

  • The Ryan Shawcross Debate

    Other than Bridge/Terry the main talking point in football over the weekend has been Ryan Shawcross’ challenge which left Arsenal midfielder with a broken leg. Now I am on the side that it wasn’t actually that bad of a challenge, it was just a very hard challenge and Shawcross was fully focused on winning the ball […]

  • League Cup Final: Manchester United 2 – 1 Aston Villa

    I did not care at all who won this game and was disappointed when Wayne Rooney started on the bench. I really do think he’s just unstoppable at the moment. I just wanted to see a good game of football and it wasn’t too bad at all. The main talking point is still that Vidic […]

  • Newcastle 3 – 0 Preston North End

    Three days after the impressive second half against Coventry we were back at St James Park for the visit of Preston. Unfortunately the best player from Wednesday’s game was out injured for this game, Wayne Routledge and boy did we miss him. Danny Guthrie was given the task of playing right midfield and pretty much […]
