When Newcastle United scampered down the tunnel after a ridiculously poor first half showing against Tottenham Hotspur, Toon fans began to ask the question - what kind of gameplan did NUFC really bring to White Hart Lane?

‘Relieved’ Mike Ashley will be in for a shock in the near future

I couldn’t help but have a good laugh to myself when I heard that Mike Ashley had visited the home dressing-room after Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Leicester City to congratulate the players on securing their first Premier League win of the season. It just proved to countless NUFC and myself - something we already knew: Mike Ashley has no understanding of …

Cheick Tioté wants out as Pardew limps on

When Peter Crouch easily rose above captain Fabricio Coloccini to nod home what turned out to be Stoke City’s winner, it was all too familiar for Newcastle United fans.

Hull City collapse prolongs Pardew’s painful stay

The atmosphere promised to be toxic. That very word had been bandied around the offices of every media outlet covering Newcastle United ahead of their home encounter with Hull City.

With less than 20 hours till Newcastle United play host to what is expected to be the most toxic atmosphere in the club’s history, club ‘captain’ Fabricio Coloccini has called on supporters to come out and give the team their full backing when they take to St. James’ Park against Hull City.

Alan Pardew knows he is nearing the end of his time at Newcastle United

I have often felt some sort of empathy towards Newcastle United managers in the past who have been shown the door at St. James’ Park.

Alan Pardew: At a point of no return with Newcastle supporters?

There are very few professions in the world that people often pray/beg/call for the sacking of an individual from his day job.
