One of the things that you notice about New York is how fast paced it is, a non-stop, city that never sleeps being a cliché for a reason, with everything being delivered instantly. Were but the same true for this blog. Truth is it has taken until now to get over the festive period and get writing the second installment, such was the force of the visit from the ‘emissaries from the tf bunker’. That and the complete lack of motivation to think about anything NewcastleUnited related given events over the last couple of months results in a very late … Continue reading
Our man Steve Farrell has completed his summary of the third true faith READERS SURVEY of the season and it is now being lovingly prepared for the next issue of the fanzine (TF 110) which will be with you a week tomorrow (more details to follow). So, once we have that off the decks we’ll be looking to come back to you with the fourth true faith : READERS SURVEY of the season for a week on Monday (17/Mar/14). Obviously, we have our own ideas as to what are the great questions of the Black & White state but we … Continue reading
As we all know too well, there is no Newcastle United this weekend but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any football for you to take in and it’s just round the doors. We’ve cast an eye over the Northern League’s fixture card and spotted a few gems that might be up your auto-strada and this could be a handy strategy for the Black & White cognoscenti to avoid a trip to the gates of hell (aka IKEA). Decent weather forecast this weekend, so what better way is there to spend an afternoon in the very early spring-time, watching a decent … Continue reading

United picked up another impressive away win at Hull on Saturday as we finally did what we’ve threatened to do in several games this season and dish out a hiding away from home. 7 away wins now for the season. Last season’s disastrous away form has been well and truly put to bed. With Fulham, Stoke & Soton still to come away from home there is scope for us to best an all time away season record. With Fulham and Palace to come next, we’re looking up the table rather than down after opening a gap with 9th and well away … Continue reading
So, only one place to start this week and it’s on the touchline at Hull City with Alan Pardew and David Meyler. Click here to see what really happened if by the remotest possibility you have avoided seeing it in the media. First things first, what Pardew did was unprofessional and wrong. It’s bad for the game and it doesn’t present a great image of our club either. He should be punished – most likely with a fine from the FA to go with the eye-watering £100K lopped from his salary (if you can believe what United say, I might … Continue reading
MATCH REPORT: Hull City 1 Newcastle United 4, KC Stadium, 1/Mar/14, KO: 3pm, Premier League. Att:24,903
The ‘Wanker-Owner’ Derby (Cardiff are excluded because they like leeks and sheep’s anus’ plus their owner’s trousers touch his eyebrows) was won with aplomb by the tatty goods stockists work’s team. I feared the worst when King Colo was ruled out due to a family bereavement and HBA was again missing as apparently he had a ‘knock’ which I assume is French for having ‘flair’ according to the gospel of Pardew. Fair play to the spinster mind; if there is one way to divert pressure then nutting a Mackem is possibly up there at the highest of echelons. He thankfully … Continue reading
A belated entry to the tifosi this week. I didn’t see the game live and was not in a position to give an instant reaction. I avoided Match of the Day and most football media at all costs over the weekend out of dread of the circus surrounding what I knew had happened! Pardew is an idiot for doing what he did, we all know that. He should have known that regardless of his supposed intent, the media would be all over this. Alex Hurst gives an excellent account of the media witch hunt that has occurred since Saturday in … Continue reading
