Hello, good afternoon and welcome to our penultimate “match banter” for the season.

This time of course, the Magpies face Queens Park Rangers and with Alan Pardew once again seemingly unable to find a win for love or money, each game becomes ever more crucial in the Toon’s bid to stave off yet another relegation. With our next opponents being Champions League chasing Arsenal, this clash with one of the three teams who have actually managed to be worse than us so far this season has assumed even more importance.

Hello, good evening and welcome to NUFC Blog’s regular “match banter” feature, which this time sees Newcastle United facing West London club, Queen’s Park Rangers over at their place.

Of course, much of the pre-match gossip has centred around this being a reunion with old friend, Joey Barton, who was ejected from the club after creating something of a storm of his tweets on a certain microblogging site. Personally though, I think that it has been done to death now and I won’t dwell on it here. Suffice to say, we all know what he is capable of and he will be a big threat, along with others in a club which has been investing under it’s new owner, Tony Fernandes.

However, if you would like some more in depth reading in the run up to the game, please check out my esteemed colleague, Jimbob’s match preview if you haven’t already.

As usual, I shall endeavour to put up the teamsheets when they become available, and if you have any good links to the match, please feel free to post them! (more…)

Last game of a momentous season.
Last game of a momentous season.
Well, this may be another slightly rushed match banter from yours truly as I will be at our final game of this, a crucial season in Newcastle United’s history. It has been a season where we rose like a Phoenix from the ashes of the season before it, and saved ourselves from the trap of an extended stay in football purgatory.

I will of course be furnishing a full match report of our last game in The Championship in the fullness of time. However, I will be attending the game with an alcoholic, so the best laid post match plans may go slightly astray. Until then, there is all the usual pre match guff in the estimable Toonsy’s fine match preview.

Much of the pre match speculation seems to focus on whether some of the younger lads may get a go now that nearly all of our targets for the season, apart, perhaps, from getting over a hundred points to put the cherry on top of the cake, seem to have been achieved. We will see when the teamsheet is announced. (more…)
