  1. My true Valentine.
  2. Paul Joyce, Northern Football Correspondent June 5 2017 "Newcastle United have won the race to sign Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham as Rafa Benítez looks to bolster his attack for the assault on the Premier League." "The 19-year-old forward enjoyed an exceptional season on loan at Bristol City last season, scoring 26 goals in 48 matches, and will now make a step up in standard." "The deal represents a coup for Newcastle and Benítez, who has good relations with Chelsea from his spell as interim manager at Stamford Bridge when he won the Europa League in 2013. " "Brighton & Hove Albion, also newly promoted from the Championship, had been interested in recruiting Abraham, who will instead move to St James’ Park on loan."
  3. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/13139857.stm Would love to know the facts about this? The fact he took a lot of money for little return? The fact he couldnt be bothered or the fact he cared amount England than the club paying his wages!
  4. Well, might as well be. from .co.uk - http://www.nufc.co.uk/articles/20130301/club-statement-nile-ranger_2281670_3094148 Fucking waste of space that lad is.
  5. I've been thinking this week about strikers at the club and will we ever see someone as good as Shearer again? I doubt it. What prompted the thoughts was me watching the derby against Sunderland where he scored his final goal. I remember the scenes in the away end that day, different class. He scored some pearlers for us in his time here, without doubt my favourite ever player at the club (Beardsley in a close second). What's your favourite goal? This one for me, purely for the memories of the whole stand absolutely bouncing when it went in. It was a tight game and the mixture of relief and jubilation will always stay with me. What a player.
  6. Hi guys, Just thought I'd give you a heads up on a programme going out on ITV4 next Tuesday at 9pm (January 31st) about one of our former players. Like him or loathe him, Craig Bellamy's fiery nature on the football pitch usually divides opinion amongst football fans and players alike. Less known about Craig is his outstanding charity work out in Sierra Leone and his commitment to the children of a country still recovering from a brutal civil war. If you're interested in the work he's doing for deprived children in Africa and want to know a little bit more about the real Bellers then check out the documentary...see whether it changes your perceptions of him!! Cheers, A CBFtoon
  7. Newcastle United have completed the signing of striker Dwight Gayle from Crystal Palace Newcastle United have completed the signing of Dwight Gayle from Crystal Palace. The 25-year-old striker arrives at St. James' Park for an undisclosed fee and has put pen to paper on a five-year deal. Gayle began his professional career at Dagenham & Redbridge and spent time on loan at Bishop's Stortford and Peterborough United before joining the latter permanently in January 2013. However, just six months later Palace made their move for the front man in a then-club record switch, and Gayle spent three seasons at Selhurst Park, finishing as the Eagles' top scorer in each of them and featuring in the 2016 FA Cup final at Wembley. "It's a dream come true to be at a big club like this," said Gayle. "Newcastle has a massive fan base and a great history so it is amazing to be here. "I can't wait to get started, prove myself and score the goals that take us back up to the Premier League. It's where this Club belongs." Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez added: "Dwight is a great player, a proven goalscorer, and it is fantastic news that he has joined us. "He has a big personality, a lot of energy and pace. He is a good finisher also, so he will add goals to our squad, for sure. "He knows English football well, too, and that is important in the Championship. "I am sure Dwight will want to prove he can make a big difference to our team and I am looking forward to working with him." Welcome to Newcastle!
  8. http://www.themag.co.uk/2017/03/daryl-murphy-calf-injury-confirmed-scan-newcastle-united/ This could be a big blow to us with Gayle not yet up to speed & Murphy the preferred option over Mitrovic let's hope the scan doesn't show reveal anything serious.
  9. As usual I know nowt about our latest signing but I must say I like the look of his you tube compilation. Now I know anyone can look decent in a few minutes of highlights, but I particularly like the many different type of goals he scores. The flicks, the round the keeper, the power shot, the dribble and score, the poacher. Now I'm sure given his age and lukewarm reception he's probably in the donkey category, but I am actually excited to see him play http://youtu.be/LvA6nErcnD8
  10. Im exactly the same as the fans at the minute - Im one of them. I pay for my ticket and Im the same. I am entitled to my opinion. It hasnt been pleasant watching to be honest. Its been poor. With Newcastle in the bottom three going into the dark evenings Shearer feels that the problems at United havent just unfolded overnight. He said: It has been poor since January this year, The quicker we can get out of it the better. But he feels a tough scrap against relegation could lie ahead. He said: I dont hold too much hope for us this season. I think it could be a long hard season for us. Pardew will prepare his players for another crunch fixture on Saturday against Leicester amidst a backdrop of pressure with sections of the Toon Army still on his back. Now Shearer believes there can be no excuses going into the battle with former Newcastle coach Nigel Pearsons newly promoted Foxes. Shearer said: Nobody can make any excuses. The simple fact is we havent been good enough. You can make whatever excuses you want. Injuries, too many games or confidence. Put all of that to one side, the simple fact of the matter is we just have not been good enough. We havent been unlucky. We havent been ravaged by injuries. We havent been done by dodgy decisions. We just havent been good enough. Its simple. Thats the harsh reality of it. Things have to improve and they have to improve pretty quickly or we could find ourselves in a hole.
