The one player this season that has caused much debate among the fan base is our 40 million record summer signing, Joelinton. Scoring only 1 goal with 2 assists in a staggering 29 games in the league for Newcastle this season. The debate has very much been one of 2 questions, Is Joelinton a striker? Is Joelinton getting enough service? Both of these questions we've all been back and forth on as supporters. But maybe project restart could prove project catalyst for goal shy Jo
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
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
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
Frank Lampard will be visiting St. James' Park for the first time as a manager this weekend in game that could go either way as the Sky Sports cameras will be in attendance. In the first half of the 20th century, we had an excellent record when Chelsea came up for a visit to Tyneside which puts our current great recent record in that same category to shame. In the years spanning from 1910 to 1954, we were unbeaten in 19 consecutive league matches at home to Chelsea - winning
The only highlight of the tragic second half showing against Rochdale yesterday, was the long awaited return of Matt Ritchie, and boy do we need him! Whilst he may have struggled to make an impact off the bench, in what was another on an ever growing list of FA Cup embarrassments for Newcastle United, Ritchie brings so much back to the table. Since the former Bournemouth man rose to prominence in a black and white shirt, I've always compared him to a dog that is the leader o
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
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
Many fans have been discontent since Steve Bruce became Rafa Benitez's successor at Newcastle and that discontent may become louder if the Magpies fail to get the three points against fellow strugglers Brighton on Saturday. In Bruce's defence, the opening five fixtures have not been kind to Newcastle with having faced three of the top six teams in the opening five games of the league season. As Brighton visit Tyneside, this is one of the few games Newcastle have played where
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
The Premier League's bottom two sides go head to head at St. James' Park on Saturday as Steve Bruce will aim for his first win at St. James' Park as Newcastle manager. Watford's poor finish to the end of last season appears to have continued into the new season as they are the only team in the league yet to register a single point. Considering the Watford board are no strangers to the sacking culture in modern day football, Javi Gracia could well be fearing for his job. Despi
"I want to have a great season, I'm training for it. I'm happy to be here, I'm focused, motivated, I hope to adapt quickly. I hope to start the season well. And just like the team, let's go game by game, do my best, score goals, and finish the season well. I think English football is more busy, more melee. In Germany football is also very intense, but here it is even more so. The level is higher, it is the best league. I have to adapt quickly to the game level. Players have a
