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
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 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
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
It is incredibly difficult to envisage Newcastle getting a positive result away at Leicester on Friday night as The Foxes have shown an upturn in form since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers. It was in this fixture last season when the Magpies achieved their first win at The King Power Stadium after the stadium opened in 2003. Following that win which took place on 7th April last year, Newcastle climbed into the top half of the table, the first time the Magpies were a top half s
The last time we played Leicester, we won 2-1 in what became our first win at the King Power Stadium following the Foxes’ move from Filbert Street. Jonjo Shelvey opened the scoring with Newcastle’s landmark 1,200th Premier League goal and Ayoze Perez put the game out of Leicester’s reach with an exquisite lob over Kasper Schmeichel. That win was the third in a run of four consecutive victories for the Magpies who have unfortunately failed to win away from home since. As far a
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
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
