Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them. Dion Boucicault My kinsman Dion Boucicault word’s could be unfortunately accurate in relation to the Magpies summer so far. July has come upon us and progress is such a common term at this stage of a club’s Summer. Players leave, more arrive and the financial powerhouses of Manchester United, Man City and Liverpool delve deeper and deeper into pools of borrowed cash in search of [...]
It now looks all but certain that the Spanish left back Jose Enrique will leave Newcastle United before the new season starts. Whether he will be much better off at a rebuilding Liverpool team or at Arsenal (where they are likely to lose Cesc Fabregas or Samir Nasri or maybe even both of them) remains to be seen. At the end of the day Jose will have to decide which team’s future he believes in. [...]
A quiet week on Tyneside regarding transfers in comparison to previous weeks. However, Alan Pardew has completed his fourth signing of the summer by securing a 5 year deal for French u19 starlet Mehdi Abeid, please do take the time to look at our own Glen Maddison’s latest article about Mehdi Abeid for more information on the player. The rumour mill at St. James’ Park never disappoints and continues to link new players in and out [...]
It looks like the French revolution has no signs of stopping on Tyneside just yet as Newcastle sign young Frenchman Mehdi Abeid on a 5 year deal. The 18 year olds contract at French club Racing Club Lens expired after the French side were relegated to the second tier of French football and it seems Newcastle saw the youngster as a good prospect with reportedly Cheick Tiote and Hatem Ben Arfa selling the club to [...]

As you may know, Newcastle United FC seem to be transforming their squad as the old breed seem to be on their way out to make way for a “new look Newcastle”. It’s pretty obvious there’s one place where NUFC have their sights fixed and that place is a small land, across the channel, called France. Yes it looks like this new look Newcastle the club is searching for must have a bit of “bonne [...]
Kevin Nolan’s exit is not as bizarre as that of Elvis or Tupac but it still has bewildered many. His replacements have come in the form of French international play-maker Yohan Cabaye and Demba Ba. If these were pokemon cards the magpies would have come out stronger from the deals yet one wonders in the real world of Premier League football if the talisman that Nolan was has been replaced or will the void remain. [...]
Who to choose from or who would choose us? Albert Luque, Patrick Kluivert, Michael Owen amassed a total of 34 goals between them over a combined seven years with Newcastle United. Their accumulated transfer fees came to 28 million pounds. This is not good enough, neither is a strike force of Leon Best, Shola Ameobi and Peter Lovenkrands. A club with our aspirations and potential needs a twenty goal a season striker or two if [...]
After the launch of the new Puma Newcastle United home shirt for the 2011/2012 season, NUFC fans only had a short wait before seeing the club’s new 3rd Kit (alternate). As widely reported before the release, the colour is an all black affair with two white diagonal stripes complementing the shirt, which many NUFC fans have named “the training top”. The kit sponsor is still with Northern Rock while the kit design still lies with Puma. Another [...]
