Can Rafa Benitez Help Continue Newcastle’s Recent Resurgence?

Rafa Benitez has been responsible for turning the fortunes of Newcastle United around, adding another promotion to his glittering CV in the process, but can the Spaniard continue moving the club in the right direction, and is there any possibility he could add further silverware to the St. James’ Park trophy cabinet? At the end […] ~ 12:00 NUFC Blog

Newcastle up against it at Manchester United

Newcastle United will bid to return to form when they visit Manchester United on November 18. After a promising start to the season the Magpies have gone off the boil in their last two games, recording 1-0 defeats against Burnley and Bournemouth. Their last victory was a 1-0 success at home to Crystal Palace during […] ~ 11:49 NUFC Blog

Newcastle Still Require More Firepower to Cement a Top-Half Finish

Newcastle United and Rafa Benitez have made a terrific start to life back in the Premier League, sitting in seventh position after just nine games and possessing a positive goal difference. The Magpies have been defensively solid so far, chalking up three clean sheets, with Jamal Lascelles impressing at the heart of the back four. […] ~ 11:15 NUFC Blog

Newcastle’s Defensive Record Will Be Key To Where They Finish This Season

Newcastle United’s return to the Premier League is just reward for their impressive Championship campaign last season when they finished as champions, one-point clear of second placed Brighton. Newcastle’s front line were on fire last campaign out scoring every other club with 85 goals, and yet it was their back four who were most impressive […] ~ 18:03 NUFC Blog

Can Jamaal Lascelles Break into the England Squad?

The latest England squad has been announced for the upcoming qualifiers at the beginning of October, with the usual array of names featuring. Gareth Southgate has been labelled as fairly predictable and safe with his selections in recent months, and the announcements regularly divide Premier League fans. Newcastle supporters have been impressed by captain Jamaal […] ~ 18:05 NUFC Blog

Jamaal Lascelles rewarded for Toon heroics with new contract

Since Newcastle United’s previous Premier League relegation, the club were in search of new heroes within their squad and latest Captain and Defender, Jamaal Lascelles, has appeared as just that. The solid centre back has been superb for the Toon in recent seasons and has become club skipper under the watchful eye of Spanish manager […] ~ 19:42 NUFC Blog

Can Newcastle United Make a Genuine Push for Europe?

The start of the campaign was hardly the most inspiring for Newcastle United, following defeats against Tottenham, Huddersfield, and then perhaps most alarmingly, home elimination from the EFL Cup by Nottingham Forest. However, since then form improved until a narrow defeat to Brighton, and it seems the side managed by Rafa Benitez has found a […] ~ 19:00 NUFC Blog

Are Newcastle Fans Right to be Disappointed by the Club’s Transfer Dealings this Summer?

Rafa Benitez wasn’t able to hide his frustration at the end of August as Newcastle failed to land a number of their primary targets in the transfer window this summer. The Magpies were one of a number of top-flight clubs who voted for the window to be closed prior to the start of the season […] ~ 19:15 NUFC Blog

How will Newcastle fare next season in the Premier League?

It is often said that no club is too big to go down and fallen giants such as Aston Villa and Leeds United are testament to that, but Newcastle’s relegation to the Championship in the 2015-16 season was unexpected, and a body blow for the Magpies’ faithful. However, with a passionate and talented manager in […] ~ 11:56 NUFC Blog

Why Newcastle United’s last two games will be important

Before last Monday evening, a run of one point from three games had seen Newcastle fall seven points behind Brighton. A convincing and confidence boosting 4-1 victory against Preston steadied nerves, assuring automatic promotion, but as a team feted as one of the best (or most expensive) ever to find themselves in the Championship, it […] ~ 17:58 NUFC Blog

Newcastle United vs Leeds United: A battle of the statistics

Newcastle are hurtling back towards the Premiership after opening up a commanding lead at the top of the Championship and they could seal promotion in their upcoming home game against Leeds Utd. Gary Monk’s men have enjoyed a strong season and will make life difficult for Newcastle, but the Magpies will be confident of victory. […] ~ 18:16 NUFC Blog

Can Benitez still beat Hughton’s 102 point promotion record?

I know similar comparisons have been made elsewhere between Benitez’s current Magpies team and Chris Hughton’s 2009-10 side. However, Tuesday evening’s game against Hughton’s Brighton has finally inspired me to throw in some of my own thoughts on the matter. As we go into another crunch game against third placed Huddersfield with 34 games gone, […] ~ 14:24 NUFC Blog

Why Gayle can be more than just a Championship wonder

If you took a straw poll of Toon fans, I’m pretty sure that most would agree that Dwight Gayle has been Newcastle United’s player of the season so far, and by some distance for 20 obvious reasons. Signed for around £10 million from Crystal Palace, it might have seemed like quite alot for a player […] ~ 19:21 NUFC Blog

Burton Albion vs Newcastle United: A David vs Goliath struggle

As Newcastle United travel to the 6900 capacity Pirelli Stadium to face Burton Albion, one of the smallest teams in the Championship, I thought it would be a good opportunity to look at how the spectrum of teams in the Championship is as wide, and maybe even wider as it is in the Premiership with […] ~ 14:58 NUFC Blog

Benitez and the ironic change of emphasis at topsy-turvy Toon

Like the NHS and the British education system, Newcastle United under Mike Ashley has undoubtedly been the victim of too many top down reorganisations inflicted by those who didn’t have a clue what they were doing. Yet, despite living with the consequences for a second time under Mike Ashley in the form of relegation, we […] ~ 11:56 NUFC Blog

A trip down memory lane for Toon fans at Euro 2016

Following a disastrous season to forget at Newcastle United, thoughts among some might be turning to the European Championships starting tomorrow.

Will Benitez provide the Yang to Newcastle United’s Yin?

Presuming you are Newcastle United fan, or a football fan of some sort at least as you are reading this football blog, you’ll know the usual clichés about Newcastle United – passionate, impulsive, living in the moment and pretty much the exact opposite of new(ish) manager, Rafael Benitez. Words like ‘analytical,’ ‘calculating’ and ‘strategic’ cling […] ~ 13:59 NUFC Blog

As relegation struggling Newcastle United face Leicester City at this evening at the King Power stadium, all eyes will be on new manager, Rafael Benitez, and what he can do to turn things around.

A chance for Toon to forget the past in their next five games?

Looking forward to Newcastle United’s next five league games, against Leicester, Crystal Palace, Liverpool, Tottenham and Aston Villa respectively, usually one would be forgiven for thinking that the Magpies should have a good chance in three of those games, against two smaller sides and another troubled giant in Aston Villa. One would also be forgiven […] ~ 14:32 NUFC Blog

Newcastle United, Mike Ashley and eternal recurrence

Let us think this thought in its most terrible form: existence as it is, without meaning or aim, and yet recurring inevitably, without any finale in nothingness: “eternal recurrence.” Friedrich Nietzsche – The Will to Power I quoted the great proto-existentialist philosopher there because it seems such a perfect summary of all that Mike Ashley […] ~ 14:03 NUFC Blog

Newcastle United’s two forgotten players

In the misery and inertia of Mike Ashley’s Newcastle United, it is good to try and look for the flowers in the cracks of the concrete from time to time to keep oneself sane.

The truth of the Patrick Vieira and Steve McClaren to Newcastle stories?

I couldn’t help feeling there was something odd about the story of Patrick Vieira coming to Newcastle, as there is about most unsubstantiated football stories.

Why Carver’s Newcastle is the worst Newcastle team in the Premier League ever

By his own admission, Rangers’ current caretaker head coach, Kenny McDowall, has been told not only that he has no say in the players they sign, but also that he will only have a limited input into team selection too. According to McDowall himself, he has been ordered by Mike Ashley and his henchman at […] ~ 13:13 NUFC Blog

Why Ashley leaving Toon for the Champions League with Rangers is nonsense

With Mike Ashley’s recent attempts to take over at Rangers, and specifically his problems with the Scottish FA for having an interest in both clubs, it has often been said recently that Mike Ashley would be willing to leave Newcastle United so he can take over Rangers completely.

Firstly, I should declare that this piece was originally inspired by another, one of several on Newcastle United’s finances by a brace of accountants who also happen to be Toon fans in the latest issue of fanzine, ‘True Faith.’ It’s a very good read. Of course, it has been known for quite some time that […] ~ 14:00 NUFC Blog

Have ‘Time4Change’ lost their chance to seize the day?

My latest piece on metro.co.uk was published earlier today. Entitled ‘Have two Newcastle United victories cost ‘Time4Change’ their momentum?,’ as you might have guessed from the title, it takes a look at the Newcastle United ‘Time4Change’ movement. In the piece I ask if they are now in danger of losing their momentum after their first […] ~ 15:02 NUFC Blog

Newcastle United with and without Williamson

Despite the heroics of Tim Krul on Saturday, as well as those of other more ‘glamorous’ Newcastle United players such as Loic Remy, Yohan Cabaye etc throughout the season, if we look at the results both before and after he came into the team, it could be argued that Newcastle United’s most important player this […] ~ 20:28 NUFC Blog

Krul’s record-breaking performance against Tottenham [video]

My latest piece on metro.co.uk was published earlier today. Called ‘Tim Krul – the best performance by any goalkeeper this season?,’ it is my usual look back over the week-end’s game on my other Newcastle United blog. As the title suggests, it is mostly about Tim Krul’s performance in goal on Sunday, which pretty much […] ~ 19:33 NUFC Blog
