With Mike Ashley on the brink of selling our club to the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, a lot of players will be playing for their futures if we can get this season resumed but if we can't, some of them will likely have played their final game for us. So let's take a look at our squad and see who's futures could be affected by the takeover. Starting with the goalkeepers, Karl Darlow and Rob Elliot are coming to the end of their contracts and I don't think a new manag
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
I am not going to lie, this took way longer to type up then I thought it would. They cannot say I do nothing though can they? On we go!
I know he is playing as an attacking midfielder now but I think, as he has spent most of his time on the wing this season, he falls into this category.
I think he has had an amazing season, including the times when he was not scoring goals. Prior to his first goal, I said on the channel that we should persevere with him and
It was always going to be difficult for us to get players in this January given the amount of senior players already on our books. Unlike previous years when we've named Jack Colback, Henri Saivet and Achraf Lazaar in our Premier League squad (despite the three only making one league appearance between them (which was actually the game that saw Saivet give the ball away for a goal early on before scoring a free kick four minutes later to equalise in a 3-2 win at West Ham in D
The headline isn't rhetorical, I genuinely want to know, as its got me scratching my head. Our £40million record signing was handed the number nine shirt at the start of the season and has so far only found the net once. Signed from Hoffenheim, the Brazilian found the net just seven times in twenty six appearances in the Bundesliga last season and hasn't even been called up to a Brazil national squad since U17 level. So why did the club, famous for clutching the purse strings
It's fair to say his time so far in black and white hasn't been the best has it?
Bar that magical day away at Tottenham we have not really seen much of Joelinton in front of goal.
I feel he is a lad in a difficult spot right now. An inexperienced young player in the wrong kind of team for him to thrive as a striker. I feel the lack of scouting here to sign a player like Joelinton for a squad like ours to play in a wrong position and spend £40million is beyond baffling to
The FIFA 20 ratings have been revealed and whilst players have been talking about their own ratings on social media, I thought I'd go through all of our player ratings (including the players we have out on loan) and what it could mean for them on career mode. The rating difference from FIFA 19 mentions the rating from when the game was released. Martin Dubravka - 80 (+1 from FIFA 19) This is no surprise and it says something that despite turning 30 in January, Martin Dubravka
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 City whilst Mikel Merino left for Real Sociedad after his
“Football changed my life completely; sometimes what’s happened seems like a miracle but it’s enabled me to help my community and my family. My faith is the most important thing in my life. I know I’m one of the lucky people God has blessed. I’m very lucky and privileged to be in this position. I had nothing and now I’ve got too much so I have to give something back. “I donate often, so they can buy food and stuff. At the moment we’re building a school in Ghana. About 300 chi
Newcastle United; a club that sells to make pennies A hot topic at the minute is Newcastle United’s transfer news, clearly because there is very little of it and the transfer window is very close to slamming shut. Newcastle don’t have the greatest history when it comes to transfers, our last record signing was Michael Owen back in 05/06 season. Since then we have seen very little in terms of ambition from the club, there was the 15/16 season where we spent around 100 million
“It’s been three weeks now since I did my surgery and I’ve been working on my recovery. I’ve been doing gym work and I’m feeling better and getting stronger each and every day.”I had a problem with my fat pad where parts of it were touching it and they had to fat pad part of it away. The doctor said that everything was successful. The recovery will take three to four months, but he also said everything will depend on how I’m feeling. I had the injury for three years and I was
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
“Have you been to Ghana? Life is hard enough there, when my car stops at the traffic lights children beg for money. They don’t have a house or nowhere to go. They can end up in bad situations. We have to build a better world for them. As a grown-up guy I managed to get so far but it’s not always like that for kids in Ghana. “Arms Around the Child is a charity we have and I am an ambassador for it and I am doing my best to raise money.
