Another article inspired by Kyle, I thought I'd talk about my favourite and least favourite things in my time following Newcastle United and I will be keeping it to from my first Toon game in January 2009. Favourite game - 1-0 v Anzhi Makhachkala (14/03/2013) I thought I'd start with my favourite Magpies game and for this one, I'm going to go with the 1-0 win over Anzhi Makhachkala in the Europa League in March 2013. With the score 0-0 in Russia a week earlier, it had been a
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
Given there has only been like four goals between them so far this year. It is going to be a hard job to rate these players.
It was fantastic to see him re-sign for the club and it was a long time coming as well. On this occasion, it has sadly, once again, he has been plagued by injuries.
That being said, when he has played, he has actually looked as if he is capable of leading the line and be a centre forward. Believe it or not, he has four assists to his n
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
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
I never thought after his loan move to West Brom I'd be arguing the case for Dwight Gayle..... But here we go! Steve Bruce has spoken about wanting to buy him 3 separate times over the course of his career. So there is little doubt that he highly rates the former Crystal Palace striker. However, the frontman has only been getting a few minutes here and there. It may appear controversial but I think Gayle needs to start Thursday night in Sheffield. Here's my reasons why: Joeli
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
Newcastle United went through a tough time last season after both Dwight Gayle and Joselu failed to find any real goalscoring form despite Dwight Gayle's phenomenal 26-goal Championship season just the year before. Here at NewcastleFansTV, we have analysed the truth behind Newcastle and especially Dwight Gayle's goalscoring misfortune. The 17/18 season saw The Magpie's No.9 Dwight Gayle only bag 6 goals, that's around a quarter of what he managed in the Championship just the
“Yeah, I’m loving it here. My family’s all set. For the time being, if the gaffer’s happy with me, I’m happy at to stay. The opportunity’s there for me. The gaffer’s given me every opportunity to prove myself. Last season, perhaps I didn’t get as many goals, but I was getting opportunities. If I continue to get those opportunities, I will score goals. Hopefully, I get the chance to prove myself again this season and I do myself proud. Of course, we want to improve the team, a
Gayle told the Mirror: “He’s perceived to be a bit different, but he’s a good lad and a really good friend. It’s his will to win that might make people see him as aggressive. Last weekend, we were in the garden with the lads, and some of their kids are having a kickabout. Then Jonjo joined in and started flying into them with full-on tackles! “We’ve had a few arguments. I remember in one game he was meant to give the ball back to their keeper and he accidentally booted it out
