Leicester City Away. Leicester were in Unreal form at the time. I think they were unbeaten in there last 5.
Heading down on Paul's bus on the day (if you know, you know) I didn't know what to expect. In all honesty with how good Leicester were and how bad we were away from home that season only winning against Swansea and Stoke away I believe before that. I had very little hope we could get something on this day. But I couldn't
Another article I've decided to do during this pandemic and this time, we'll be looking at players we forgot signed for Newcastle. We won't be including academy graduates who didn't make many first team appearances before leaving as we'd be here all day, it will be senior players signed from other clubs but hardly played and I won't include Achraf Lazaar or Henri Saivet as they're still on the books here. Anyway, let's have look at some of our forgotten men. Jesús Gámez I had
Whilst there is no football due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, here is a series of articles analysing the top goalscorers for the club from the last 10 years (1st April 2010 - 1st April 2020). Today we will be analysing the top five of the top 10 goalscorers for the club in the past decade. 5th - Matt Ritchie - 22 goals First goal Newcastle United 4 - 1 Reading Ritchie (2-1) - 17/08/2016 - Championship Last goal Bournemouth 2 - 2 Newcastle United Ritchie (2-2) - 16/03/2019
Leicester City (a), Premier League, 14/03/2016: Lost 0-1 Rob Elliot: Elliot began Rafa Benitez's time at Newcastle as the first choice keeper following Tim Krul's season-ending injury he suffered the previous October. Elliot's performances in the 2015/16 season earned him the fans' choice for the club's player of the season. However, soon after Benitez's arrival, he picked up a serious injury which kept him out for a year. This gave Karl Darlow the chance to shine and he was
With Newcastle sitting fairly comfortably in the top half of the Premier League at the end of 2014, the board decided to stick with John Carver on an interim basis and restart fresh during the off season. It was a decision that turned out to not be without risk as the club went on their worst run of form in their Premier League history with several consecutive defeats brought them into the relegation dogfight. The fight went to the final day of the season and a memorable 2-0
Ayoze Perez will (most likely) be making his first league appearance against Newcastle on Sunday following his summer move away from St. James' Park. This is a fixture that Perez is no stranger to. He scored the winning goals for the Magpies in the last two meetings at the King Power Stadium, both of which gave Newcastle a huge boost in their survival bids to stave off the threat of relegation. Prior to the previous two meetings, Newcastle's recent record away at Leicester wa
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
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 City whilst Mikel Merino left for Real Sociedad after his
“It was a long night. But at the end the result is the one that we all wanted and we are through to the next round. In terms of the game being physical the guys are really tired but that is what the competition is about and we must get on with it. We want to play in it. The best thing about the night was the result. Now we must focus on Saturday because it is the main game for us now. It is important to get that winning feeling back. There is nothing better than getting back
“Newcastle is my second home. I’ve been there for four years and I’ve grown a lot. I am already almost bilingual. I like to grow, I am ambitious and what I think is that I need to keep taking steps forward. Rafa Benitez has been responsible for helping me improve and for my important lessons. He is a top coach. To this day, I have no intention of leaving England. I’m very comfortable at Newcastle and in the Premier League. It is a very professional football level. I already f
The first players to leave us in the summer were Vurnon Anita, Sammy Ameobi, Lubomir Satka and Haris Vuckic, who were all released at the end of their contracts. It took a while to make our first signing as Florian Lejeune finally arrived from Eibar on 4 July whilst Graham Carr left his role as chief scout and Matz Sels joined Anderlecht on loan. Later that week, we were linked with wingers Sheyi Ojo, Jesus Navas, Adama Traore and Jacob Murphy and the latter was signed from N
Newcastle came back from behind on Sunday to beat Arsenal 2-1 for the first time since November 2010. After an early goal by Lacazette, Newcastle responded with goals by Ayoze Perez and Matt Ritchie which put the magpies 13 points clear of the relegation zone and also opened up the opportunity to chase for a European spot. Lineup The starting 11 was the exact same as last the last game. (away v Leicester) SUBS: Gayle OFF, Slimani ON (63') Perez OFF, Joselu ON (79') Ritchie OF
Perez told the Star: “I’m so proud of that goal and the fact it’s been compared to one of the greatest goals in the club’s history. Which one’s better? I’ll let everyone else decide, although they are both very good. Everyone knows about Albert’s goal and I have seen it quite a few times. To this day, fans still talk about the time he lobbed Peter Schmeichel to round off a 5-0 win. Maybe they will be talking about mine in 20 years’ time, although perhaps we are not quite as b
Last Saturday, Newcastle United extended their winning streak to 3 games and moved up to tenth in the table as they beat Leicester city 2-1 away from home. After 2 decisive Newcastle goals via Jonjo Shelvey and Perez, Jamie Vardy scored what turned out to be a consolation goal as the foxes couldn't keep the pressure going for long enough to salvage anything at the King Power Stadium. Lineup Subs: Kenedy OFF, Atsu ON (64'), Gayle OFF, Joselu ON (70'), Diame OFF, Hayden ON (8
“The manager made a decision to put me on the bench. I was ready to play, but I respect his decision. I was also ready at the moment he brought me on. The idea was to help Dwight who was doing quite well and we both tried to make movements forward. We’re both runners. We could have scored but we didn’t. The main thing is we made a lot of mistakes and gave the ball away quite easy. That made Bournemouth feel comfortable on the counter attack. That’s what they were waiting for.
