As most of you are aware, was invited to take part in a feature called “Blog Off” in their pre-match build up to the Fulham game today.

Some of you will have already heard it, but for those of you that were at the match, or out of the country, or unable to listen earlier for whatever reason, here it is again in it’s entirety, after I finally worked out how to upload things to Youtube! (more…)

Check out on Absolute Radio!

For those of you that are going to the match tomorrow, it may not be that useful for you to know this.

But for those who won’t be at St James’s Park tomorrow, and have access to radio, or the internet so you can listen online, or to Sky TV or any other number of ways of picking up a radio signal, then you could be in for a bit of a bonus tomorrow afternoon. has been approached by Absolute Radio to form a part of their coverage of the Newcastle United v Fulham match tomorrow, and with a little bit of gentle persuasion, I got forced into representing us by Workyticket. He can be a mean gadgie when he wants to be! I hope he knows that I am the shy and retiring type! (more…)

Newcastle v Fulham – Match preview.

Coming home Newcastle.
Coming home Newcastle.
Newcastle will be looking to get back to winning ways on Saturday afternoon as they welcome Fulham to St James’ Park.

I would like to say that Newcastle will be looking for some more home comforts, but that hasn’t been the case this season and we appear to be, oddly for Newcastle, an away side.

That away form can’t go on forever though and Newcastle need to start picking up points at home, starting against Fulham, who haven’t won an away fixture in the Premier League for 24 matches now. That is an alarming stat, as whenever one of those kind of stats pops up it nearly always means that Newcastle will duly oblige and end that disappointing run for the opposition.

Joey ‘the one punch machine gun’ Barton starts his three-match ban and will miss the match. Shola Ameobi will face a late fitness test on a hamstring injury that he picked up against Blackburn, although given his past injury history I would be tempted to leave him out altogether, whilst James Perch and Leon Best are rated as doubtful for the match. Steve Harper, Dan Gosling and Hatem Ben Arfa are all still out with long-term injuries. (more…)

Newcastle need seven points from the next five games.

Emirates next for Newcastle.

Actually, I would prefer Newcastle to be walking away from the next five games with fifteen points in the bag, but being realistic it just isn’t going to happen.

So how do you think we will do?

Next up for United is a trip to The Emirates on Sunday, and whilst I harbour some slim hopes of us being able to take something from the game, there is a very real prospect that we could end up losing, like most teams do when they visit Arsenal.

I’ve got the match down as a loss on my little season planner of where I think we can pick up points from, but as many of you know, my predictions, so it seems, are not the best.

Following on from Arsenal we have two games at home. First up is Blackburn next Wednesday evening, a team who appear hold a voodoo card over us and always seem to be able to get results against us. (more…)
