After such a poor Premier League campaign, Newcastle could find it difficult to hang on to some of  our best players this summer, but it will take big money for Mike Ashley to agree to sell some of our top stars like Yohan Cabaye and Ben Arfa. Ben Arfa - with French squad last summer Alan Pardew had said that late [...]

Debuchy And Gutierrez Start – Cabaye On Bench

As expected,  Mathieu Debuchy makes his debut today for Newcastle at Carrow Road, but his best pal Yohan Cabaye is only on the bench. Newcastle will play in a modified 4-3-3 formation, and the midfield three will be James Perch,  Vurnon Anita and Sylvain Marveaux, and Jonas Gutierrez also returns from injury and starts this [...]

Smith: Saddlers were fantastic

Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye hopes that the Magpies have turned a corner after snapping their four-game losing run with a 0-0 draw at Norwich. Cabaye returned to action after a two-month injury lay-off following groin surgery as a second-half substitute in the drab stalemate at Carrow Road. The absence of the France international has coincided with a slump in form for the...

Unsettled Coloccini to hold talks with Newcastle

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew says captain Fabricio Coloccini will hold a meeting with club officials next week amid reports the Argentina defender could be on his way back to his homeland. Pardew is hopeful of keeping Coloccini at least until the end of the season, saying ''we will speak to him and we will resolve that situation.'' British media are reporting that...

Alan Pardew – Signings Soon For Newcastle

Things seem to be heating up in the transfer window for Newcastle, with potentially a couple of signing being made this week – we hope so. Alan Pardew - pursuits for players warming up This is what Alan Pardew had to say in the Sunday Sun today: “We are not pursuing just one player, it’s three or four, and [...]

Ben Arfa fancies French move

Hatem Ben Arfa has risked troubling Newcastle boss Alan Pardew by talking up his hopes of a future move to Paris St Germain. The forward is back in France recovering from a hamstring injury that is expected to keep him out for another month. He insisted preserving Newcastle's Premier League status remained his priority but said a return to Ligue 1 with the club he supported...

Alan Pardew Pleased With Clean Sheet

If we include the 1-1 draw at Liverpool on November 4th, Newcastle have won two and drawn two of their last 13 league games – and that’s 8 points from a possible 39 points played for, so while we are happy to get an away point and a clean sheet, Newcastle still have a lot [...]

Newcastle Could Offer Simpson in Part Exchange For Defender

Newcastle are actively looking to bring in another center-back, in case Fabricio Coloccini leaves the club this week, and Alan Pardew has said that a decision will be made Coloccini’s request this week – on whether he is allowed to leave immediately for Argentina. We’d be very surprised if Newcastle accede to the Argentine’s request, with a big relegation [...]

Ashley’s Lack Of Ambition Damaging To Newcastle

We never thought we’d be able to compete with the top six clubs in England – the two Manchester clubs, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham, and if we did then Alan Pardew is well schooled to keep reminding us regularly,  that we are not in the same financial league as those big clubs – and probably never will be. Ashley – not showing enough [...]

Newcastle Crunch Meeting With Coloccini Already Arranged

Newcastle will sort out Fabricio Coloccini’s personal situation this week, but we’d be very surprised if the club acquiesces to Colo’s demands to move to Argentina immediately, to play for San Lorenzo. Alan Pardew with Colo on the sidelines  - but not for long The facts of the matter are that Coloccini still has three and [...]

Hatem Ben Arfa Back For Tottenham Game

We’ve been wondering when Ben Arfa would be able to return to the fray, after he was brought back too early in the Fulham game on 10th December, and it looks like that misjudgment has cost Newcastle the use of the French International for two months, because Alan Pardew has said today he hopes to have Ben Arfa back for the Tottenham game, on 9th February. Hatem Ben Arfa – [...]

Loic Remy To Sign For Newcastle This Week

We thought Fabricio Coloccini had a good game yesterday at Norwich, given all the stuff going on in his private life, and the shocking news on Friday that he had asked to leave Newcastle immediately, to return to South America. Loic Remy – Newcastle in the driver’s seat Alan Pardew has said the matter will [...]

Newcastle To End Argentine’s Uncertainty This Week

Fabricio Coloccini’s personal situation has affected both his form and his mood over the last two months at Newcastle, and it’s not good when you have the captain’s mind seemingly on other things than football. Fab Coloccini – in action yesterday at Carrow Road But it turned out to be a good move by Alan Pardew yesterday to still play [...]
