Unrestricted View – Independent Regulator NOW!

When Karren Brady comes out spouting crap on the other side of the argument, you can be sure you’re safely on the side of the righteous and virtuous. And so, with everyone’s favourite porn baron enabler using a column in The S** to pour scorn on the idea of an independent regulator for football, we.

Newcastle United – it’s all about the money!

We all know since the Newcastle United takeover twelve months ago, there has been a consensus within the media that the involvement of the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund means their interest in the club is to use it in a sports-washing exercise. Those who peddle this line have a point but their

Wasted Youth – Bobby Clark, the last lost Newcastle United talent!

The ‘new’ Newcastle United is still hard to get your head around at times.

Newcastle United and the Callum Wilson conundrum!

Sympathy for Newcastle’s injuries is probably thin on the ground right now. The notion that a club that has spent hundreds of millions in less than a year and will probably do the same in the next year being down to the bare bones is laughable. Unfortunately, unlike years gone by when the injuries w
