THRU BLACK & WHITE EYES – How Soon Is Now? – 29/Sep/14


I don’t think anyone can now seriously make a case for Alan Pardew remaining as Newcastle United manager. It has passed the point of no return. You know it, I know it, Mike Ashley knows it and Alan Pardew knows it. All that is keeping Pardew in the job must be the terms of the ridiculous eight year contract given to him not so long ago by the man who now has the responsibility of bringing the whole sorry farce to a conclusion. Forget all the bollocks from Pardew about him continuing to “fight” being “professional” or any of that … Continue reading

MATCH REPORT: Stoke City 1 Newcastle United 0, Britannia Stadium, 29/Sep/14, KO: 8pm, Premier League. Att:26,332


Yet another miserable display in the Potteries left us 2nd bottom due to Burnley’s missed penalty at Crystal Palace and with a support base now so frustrated, angry and disillusioned that even loss after loss is beginning to make no difference and relegation is simply a waiting game away. Pre-match reports of Ashley making comments to some loser, who spotted him in a pub, about Pardew being ‘dead’ should he lose at The Britannia have now proved to be false and the most hated manager in my lifetime was meandering around the away technical area, making indeterminate shouts to no one … Continue reading

true faith – ISSUE 115 – DEADLINE REMINDER!


Comrades, This is just a gentle reminder from the Gallowgate End Soviet (aka the editor of this nonsense) to our band of ruddy-faced heroes of the people, pulling together material for the next issue of true faith (tf 115). The deadline is Tuesday 30/Sep/14. If you need some extra time or whatever (sighs) just drop a line to your local, friendly fanzine Kommissar at the usual address and we’ll discuss why your false consciousness and bourgeois excuses may or may not lead to a lengthy trip to a Siberian Gulag. Or Sunderland as its otherwise known. That is all. You can get … Continue reading

MATCH PREVIEW: Stoke City v Newcastle United, Britannia Stadium, 29/Sep/14, KO: 8pm, Premier League.


Sometimes, I get lost for words with events at Newcastle United. Years ago, we were dubbed a soap opera type of operation. Ridiculous off-field incidents would see our club splattered across front and back pages of newspapers. Events such as Shepherd and Hall and their brothel escapades and falling for the old, ‘fake Sheikh’ trick. There always seemed to be something going on. Our own fans had to take the club to court because they wanted to kick fans out of seats. The club it seems has been bonkers for years. And now we find, that whilst our on-field situation makes … Continue reading

true faith : AND HE SAID


It seems our er, beloved owner, Mike Ashley had a few pints too many down Soho way in London town and made his mouth go a bit. This is from The Independent, Ashley: “He’s got one more game. If we lose against Stoke on Monday night then he’s gone. I have had enough. Dead. Finished. Over. One more game then that’s it. What would you do? I have spent a lot of money on that club, it’s cost me a lot. I won’t put up with it any more. Honestly, answer me, what would you do? One more loss and he’s gone, … Continue reading
