Statistics show that Newcastle and Wolves have been fairly even in league matches against each other however Wolves have been more dominant over the Magpies in the FA Cup. However, in this fixture, Molineux has not been a happy hunting ground for Newcastle to visit in the top flight. Back in October 2011, goals from Demba Ba and Jonas Gutierrez gave Newcastle their first top flight victory at Molineux since September 1958, a barren run that features no less than 14 matches. W
I never thought I would ever be a one to give this lad lots of praise but here we go; Javier Manquillo deserves lots of credit for his performances this year.
I do not recall him making a mistake since our home loss to West Ham last season (correct me if I'm wrong). He has been very solid at the back for Newcastle. It seems the arrival of Krafth has had the same impact on Manquillo as it has had with Yedlin. It has given them a kick up the backside!
I think he has really
What a difference a week makes. This time last week we were celebrating a win over Crystal Palace and Miguel Almiron's first goal in the black and white. Since then, back to back defeats still see us comfortable in mid table, but is there now rumblings of concern around Tyneside? Few would have expected getting anything at Old Trafford, given our record both there and on boxing day, but it was the manner of the defeat which was all the more frustrating. The compact, well dril
I have seen quite a few posts on various pages, twitter comments, YouTube etc. Calling this lad 'overrated' or 'not up to standard' is very fickle in my view.
The lad is still in his breakthrough year at the club. People have not realised this when they have criticised him. Throughout that year he had a major injury too.
Don't get me wrong, I am not going to deny he has had one or two shocking performances this season. Yesterday and Burnley being standout games in that re
Two teams that were once arguably the two powerhouse teams of English football in the 1990s. Alex Ferguson against Kevin Keegan brought famous moments on and off the pitch that have been replayed over the years and have never been forgotten. Specifically the 1995/96 season when Newcastle were 12 points clear at the top of the Premier League. Towards the end of the season, Keegan reacted angrily to comments made by Ferguson which provoked an outburst live on radio which conclu
Statistics suggest that Newcastle United have been dominant as far as previous encounters against Crystal Palace are concerned. Prior to the 2018/19 season, Palace had a poor record on their travels to Tyneside having won one in the previous 16 visits. However, in April 2019, the record improved after a Luka Milivojevic penalty secured their first win at St. James' Park since March 1998 - something that helped was that Palace had an excellent away record in the 2018/19 season
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
Encounters with Burnley have been fairly even throughout history since their first encounter in 1895. Over the years, they have managed to achieve eight league doubles each against each other, leaving 34 seasons where neither team managed to achieve a double. As far as the Premier League is concerned, there has not been much history between the two sides but club history tells a very different story as Burnley were top flight regulars following the second world war up until 1
One of the longest journeys football fans in England will ever have to make is the journey between Newcastle, the northernmost Premier League side, and Southampton. The distance between the two clubs spans 329 miles. It can be argued that the excessive mileage might have a negative effect on the performance of the players of both sides. On the 98 occasions that the two sides have met in their history, the away team has only won 9% of occasions. Both teams go into Sunday's gam
Come on! Could not win at Bramall Lane we were told. What a great team performance tonight!
Martin Dubravka made some unreal saves early on to keep Newcastle in the game and he deserves the credit. He was my man of the match today! We were given a chance and, fabulously, they take it! It was an amazing cross by Javier Manquillo and Allan Saint-Maximin scored with a well hit header in the bottom corner. It was an absolute beauty! I want a headband!
Newcastle upped the ante
Ever since Steve Bruce took the reins at Newcastle United, criticising him has been all too easy. From the chaos of Jetro Willems’ introduction on the opening weekend of the season at home to Arsenal, which led to Pierre Emerick Aubameyang’s decisive winner, to the horror shows at Norwich and Leicester. However, impressive wins at Tottenham and West Ham, as well as home wins against Manchester United and Bournemouth, Bruce has made some key decisions that now see Newcastle ju
Back to back wins for the first time this season has given Newcastle found hope in their usual recovery in the month of November. Considering the Premier League is without Middlesbrough and Sunderland this season, Aston Villa is arguably the club's biggest rivals in the Premier League following their unprovoked taunting of Newcastle fans in 2009 and 2016. As far as recent history is concerned, Newcastle arguably have the upper hand despite the last three away meetings ending
Encounters between Newcastle United and Bournemouth have been few and far between as far as the histories of the two respective clubs are concerned having only played each other on no more than 12 occasions. Statistics, in this respect, would suggest that this could go either way because wins, losses and draws have been evenly split between them. One statistic in Newcastle's favour going into this match is they are unbeaten in the last three matches against the Cherries. In a
Both teams will be going into Saturday's game with good reason for believing they can take a positive result away from the game as two teams in struggling form go up against each other. A remarkable statistic about this fixture is that we have never played against West Ham outside of the league since the first league meeting in 1923. During this time, records would suggest that they have been fairly evenly matched throughout their respective histories. It was back in December
Chelsea are one of few teams to have been ever present in the Premier League and have dished out some thrashings to Newcastle United along the way. Matches between the two sides have been rather eventful and not usually happy ones for the Magpies. Newcastle have only managed to muster up one league win at Stamford Bridge since the 1986/87 season and that came in May 2012 when Papiss Cisse scored one of the Premier League's most iconic goals as Newcastle finished above the Blu
"The two or three times I’ve tried to change us, including Brighton at home and Norwich, where we started with a 5-3-2 and played three in the middle of the park, it didn’t really work. I quickly worked out at Norwich that we didn’t have the players with the capability to play the way I’d envisaged. Norwich played through us repeatedly. I learnt from that day, and it’s happened again. Looking at the way the team is happiest, you’d say we’ll play with five at the back, with tw
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
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 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
Newcastle United go to Tottenham's new stadium for the first time on the back of two defeats to kick off the new campaign. The last time Newcastle paid their first visit to a Premier League stadium was back in November 2006 in a 1-1 draw against Arsenal in the Gunners' first season at the Emirates Stadium. The trip to Tottenham has certainly provided interesting encounters in recent history with the Magpies having never come away with a draw from the North London club since a
