NUFC: Away Kit 2018/19 Season

This amazing strip has officially been announced today even though it was leaked a couple of weeks ago which in all honesty was very exciting considering it is a total throwback to the 1995/1996 season!

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 the fans. Dan Gosling on a free transfer, but would be out until at least Christmas due to injury. Sol Campbell who was already clearly past his best, and would just cost us money. But then an exciting new player would be signed on loan (but then permanent in January) Hatem Ben Arfa who looked fantastic but suffered a horrible injury when he had his leg broken after a Nigel de Jong tackle. So those being the new players brought in not really much was placed on them. We had to rely on the team who done so well making the Championship look easy the year before. Not forgetting of course our signing and possibly player of the season Cheik Tiote.

Newcastle 3-3 West Brom

Last game of the season fell at St James Park, seeing West Brom being the visiting team. Already safe for the premier league next season. The game started as everyone would expect it, not really much happening and that last game of the season feel to it. Nothing to play for . . . well I think we should have played to get the highest league finish possible and bragging rights over our close rivals. At half time that looked very good, finishing in top half looked very much on being 2 up thanks to the third goal in three games from Steven Taylor and a Peter Lovenkrands goal from Scott Carson’s error.

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 starts to the premiership season being key players for their respected hometown clubs.

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 over the pitch!

Derby Day: NUFC v SAFC

Well the first Derby day of the season is upon us tomorrow and with not having one last season with the Toon being in the Championship, it’s back . . . the Tyne/Wear derby! I have to admit that I am very excited and cannot wait to face Sunderland again at St James Park.

My best memory of being at a Derby game has to be Emre’s free kick to give us a 3-2 win!

Nothing is better than a win over your fierce local rivals! You get the bragging rights at work the next day! With being from South Shields – which has to be one of the most dangerous places to be on Derby Day due to the fact that it really is split 50/50 between NUFC and SAFC fans. Even my family is split between the two teams. The banter is usually brilliant!

HOWAY THE LADS! Let’s go for the 3 points tomorrow. I shall be in my seat in the Gallowgate end hoping for a “Emre free kick moment”.

Ben Arfa scores on full debut

Ben Arfa scored on his full debut yesterday against Everton and we won the game 1-0. We deserved the 3 points after putting in a solid team performance over the 90 minutes. Ben Arfa walked away with all the plaudits after his fantastic strike just before half time. This player really is top class, and has to be the best player we have had the club! Sign him up properly asap for me! The new Laurent Robert in my eyes – yes I was a massive Robert fan! And to be totally shallow he is gorgeous as well . . . yes I shall now go back under a rock haha.
