Jonas Gutierrez – United have a question to answer!

Jonas

Now, no-one should go jumping all over this but having had the attached news line translated from Spanish to English it would seem Alan Pardew and Newcastle United have a case to answer with regards Jonas Gutierrez and his battle against testicular cancer. What we are told the enclosed is saying is that Jonas is claiming he has received no support from Newcastle United and he has been treated particularly badly by Alan Pardew. Our man Tony Higgins out in Spain has provided this summary of the attached news bulletin: Basically below headline says that club didn’t help with treatment … Continue reading

NEWCASTLE UNITED SUPPORTERS TRUST – POLITICAL FOOTBALL AND WHAT CAN OUR MPS DO FOR US?

NUSTx

Some of you will remember the scene in the Monty Python film that asks what the Romans ever did for us. It results in a huge list of really important benefits they brought to the lot of the average person back in the day. It was funny but serves to remind us that sometimes people we don’t always want to give credit to can really help change things. Well, at the Trust we have been meeting with a number of our politicians in the region, local and national, and what we’re finding are some great allies in our quest to … Continue reading

THRU BLACK & WHITE EYES – Low – 14/Sep/14

tf114_featured_image

I was going to say Alan Pardew would be lucky to be in the dug-out this coming Saturday for the visit of Hull City but “lucky” is far from the right description. If, as can be reasonably feared, things go badly, the mood inside St James’ Park will go beyond toxic and the target for the torrent of poisonous invective will be a 53-year-old Londoner, who has become the lightening conductor for the stomach churning dissatisfaction at how Mike Ashley runs Newcastle United. Let’s be perfectly honest, but for the season we came 5th, a period when all the planets … Continue reading

true faith : JOHN CARVER

Carver2

This is likely all over the internet right now, so us putting it online will just add to the enveloping sense of misery around Newcastle United. If Carver, appears to be saying what I and many others deduct he’s saying, then it is difficult to imagine he can continue as an employee of Newcastle United FC and should be dismissed immediately. Do I need to even draw attention to the age of the young supporters virtually in the direct line of what appears to be a foul-mouthed tirade. My only caveat would be that Carver personally reimburses every single supporter at … Continue reading

MATCH REPORT: Southampton 4 Newcastle United 0, St Mary’s Stadium, 13/Sep/14, KO: 3pm, Premier League, Att:

SOTONbadge copy

Before I start I’ll give you an opportunity to give this match report a swerve. If you have any time for our Manager or any of his backroom staff then I don’t think you’ll be interested in reading this. So, I’ve given you a pre warning. Yesterday summarised how shit we’ve become since Cabaye’s departure, where in all honesty we weren’t even that good then, a display that encapsulated everything that’s wrong at Newcastle United. As always the pre match craic was decent with few lads telling some canny stories of their trip to Switzerland during the week. As is … Continue reading

MATCH PREVIEW: Southampton v Newcastle United, St Mary’s Stadium. 13/Sep/14. 3pm, Premier League 

SOTONbadge copy

So after an International break which has seen Cheick Tiote sneak in a couple of appearances for Ivory Coast, it’s back to Newcastle United matters this weekend, with a trip to one of least productive opponents in the Premier League. Rumours of Pardew being 2 defeats away from walking the plank are now starting to be denied so the frosty relationship between the manager and large sections of the crowd continues. We come in from the back of the Crystal Palace game, which I’ve got to be honest, we didn’t deserve to win, and the question marks we had over … Continue reading
