Alan Pardew – We’re Working Very Hard On New Signings

Newcastle United: Out of “Loic” In The January Transfer Window

As a faithful Newcastle fan, 2012 has been a year of trials and tribulations. In my opinion it typified the emotional roller-coaster of supporting ‘the Toon’.

But for most fans that seems a very, very long time ago. After...
