2010/11 Season Review
First season back into Premier League (where we belong, I must add) and obviously at the start of the season we were very much tipped to go straight back down. We did not really make many signings or at least proven in the Premiership players. We brought in James Perch who became quite the scapegoat amongst…
Henderson and Carroll doing the North East Proud!
It’s been a long time since Newcastle and Sunderland both had player’s in the England squad let alone team. But that changed this week when Andy Carroll and Jordan Henderson both were called up to the full squad for the first time. They have both represented their country at youth levels and have had brilliant…
Newcastle 5 – 1 Sunderland
I spent the whole weekend in the build up to the Derby game feeling both nervous and excited. In all honesty I thought the game would be a draw after a very close and tight affair – but that could not be further from what happened! The lads went goal crazy and outplayed Sunderland all…
We Are the Champions!!!
The final home game of the championship season was yesterday afternoon at St James Park. No one really cared about the game, we wanted the trophy at 5pm after the game. Just a shame the game was very dull and we drew 2-2 which kinda took the edge of it all a little, especially the…
Fizzy Pop Champions 2010
On Monday night . . . at the furthest possible place . . .we beat Plymouth 2-0 to become champions of the Championship and win the league. We will be presented with the trophy on Saturday after our final Championship home game (hopefully we will not have one for years and years to come) against…
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…
Newcastle 4 – 1 Coventry City
It was back to St James Park after a disappointing away performance against Swansea on Saturday (which some how we managed to get a point from). We wanted to see a reaction and in the first 30 minutes we did not get that reaction. We dominated the game but did not put the ball into…
Newcastle United 5 – 1 Cardiff City
All of the pre-game talk was surrounding Geordie Michael Chopra’s return to St James Park (a place he has never scored) after scoring a lot of goals for Cardiff in the Championship this season. But it was another Geordie who has taken all of the headline away from him Andy Carroll.
