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
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
Following the news that Rafa Benitez is on his way out of Newcastle, I will be reviewing his tenure on Tyneside.

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.

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
Wolves currently sit in seventh place in the Premier League and 12 points off Arsenal in sixth. They have been in excellent form this season and have adapted to life in the Premier League like a duck to water. If Wolves finish the season in seventh place, it will be the highest position a newly promoted Premier League team has achieved since Ipswich Town who finished 5th in the 2000/01 season. As for ourselves, following this difficult match at Molinuex, we have two must-win
On Sunday afternoon, we will be welcoming the visit of a newly promoted side for the first time this season. Wolves took last season's Championship by storm last year and deservedly returned to the Premier League following a six-year absence and spent the 2013/14 season in League One. With an abundance of quality in their ranks, they are side that can be feared and have adapted really well to the Premier League which is now a very different league since they were last in it.
