In April 2020, myself and my brother, David created our individual lists of ranking our top 100 NUFC matches since August 1992. This series of articles goes through the top 30 from our combined list. The criteria for the rankings in our lists were subjectively about drama, significance, excitement, result and occasion. 10) Newcastle United 4 - 3 Leicester City - Premier League (02/02/1997) Rob: 5th Dave: 20th Alan Shearer scored a dramatic late hat-trick to give Newcastle the
In the January window, Newcastle completed the three loan signings of Nabil Bentaleb from Schalke, Valentino Lazaro from Inter Milan and Danny Rose from Tottenham Hotspur. Although Bentaleb and Lazaro's positions in right wing-back and centre midfield were not ones that needed strengthening they still appeared to be good additions to the squad. Now that we have seen a few appearances from them I am going to assess whether they need to be here and whether they want to be here.
Encounters between the Magpies and Gunners have coughed up many memorable moments in football as these two teams go a long way back in their respective histories. It is safe to say that in recent history, Arsenal appear to have relished the chance to play against Newcastle despite them arguably no longer being the powerhouses they once were around the time of the 'Invincibles' era where the Gunners won two Premier League titles in three years including a campaign when they we
The new Premier League season will be kicking off this weekend and Newcastle, for the third consecutive season, will be at home against a top six side on the opening day. In many ways, it has been a difficult summer for Newcastle fans, one that will be remembered for the wrong reasons. Following the long wait on confirmation regarding Rafa Benitez's future at the club, many fans were livid that the Spaniard decided to part company with Mike Ashley and the club. There were num
This article may cause some controversy but it is my opinion and as always, you don't have to agree with me. Fans have been understandably calling for people to boycott the Arsenal game on 11 August. With the game being picked for Sky, this was probably inevitable following Rafa Benitez's departure although if BZG were to complete a takeover, it would surely be cancelled. I will always respect every football fan's decision on whether to go to games or not but in my opinion, i
Following the news that Rafa Benitez is on his way out of Newcastle, I will be reviewing his tenure on Tyneside. This isn't an article I wanted to do now but I will be doing a similar one when Mike Ashley leaves. When Rafa arrived on Tyneside to replace Steve McClaren, the club was on it's knees and sitting 19th despite spending approximately £80m in the two transfer windows. Things didn't start well for the Spaniard though as only one point from his first four games (includi
I'm not going to lie, I really should've done more articles over the season but seeing as there's no articles reviewing the season, I may as well do it myself. It was another difficult summer for us with only around £22.5m spent (not including whatever loan fees we paid for Salomon Rondon and Kenedy), by the time the first pre season game came around, the only new face was Ki Sung-yueng on a free transfer from Swansea whilst Mikel Merino left for Real Sociedad after his £10m
