Takeover – Fear and Loathing in the Premier League!

In case anybody has been living under a rock, the moon, or you’re from Sunderland and you just don’t want to believe it, Newcastle United have been sold, and our new owners are rich, and not just a little rich, mega rich! The consortium led by Amanda Staveley’s PCP partners, and flanked by the Ruebe

Jose Mourinho – Could he be The Special One for Newcastle United?

Jose Mourinho. Need I say anything more? Arguably one of the greatest managers in the world and one of the most decorated. After having what can only be described as an uneventful playing career, he made the transition into coaching starting off as a translator for the legendary Sir Bobby Robson at

Player Ratings – The TF numbers after another Bruce horror-show!

Player Ratings – Spurs(h) Darlow – 5 – Didn’t make any glaring errors but must have been fuming with the shambolic defending in front of him. Manquillo – 5 – Probably our best defender on the day but there was very little to choose from. Great assist for Wilson’s opener but let himself down by...Th

Vox Pop – TF writers reflect on another Bruceball shambles!

How much does it all matter? This was going to be about the football. About a blistering start to the game and the buzz of being able to support a team that really wanted to show a new style, new belief and get that much hoped for win.

Match Report – New era, old problems as United crash 3-2 to Spurs!

Look, forget the match for a minute. Only one thing matters; the Newcastle United fan in need of emergency treatment in the East Stand during the first-half. Thankfully, he is reportedly in a stable and responsive condition. His life, all life, relegates football to the footnotes. Credit to those m

Six of the best? A potential half dozen signings for Newcastle United!

Newcastle United’s newfound wealth has seen the club linked with almost every top footballer who seems even slightly unstable at their current club. Moves for Raheem Sterling and Mo Salah are ridiculous to say the least at this stage of the long-term project which is only beginning to bubble on Tyne

Takeover – Matters of Trust at Newcastle United!

I’ve been pretty vocal this week about why I believe the consortium should have let Bruce go at the beginning of this week. The reasoning is pretty simple, he loses football matches and we need to start winning them quickly. What I keep being told is that “they know what they are doing” and to...
