Has the new Newcastle boss lost the plot already?

Foul-mouthed, angry, frustrated. Just a few ways you could politely describe Joe Kinnear and his one and only press conference at Newcastle this week. You can read it all here. I’m still not sure what to make of it…

Are you a Newcastle fan that would like to whack Dennis Wise? Then read on…

And play this wonderfully addictive game.

Allardyce fears Barton “suicide” if Newcastle sack him

From today’s News of the World: JOEY BARTON could sink into a suicidal depression if Newcastle sack him. The chilling warning comes from Sam Allardyce, the man who paid £5.8 million to take Barton (right) to Tyneside last summer. Toon chiefs must decide whether to cancel Barton’s contract after he was found guilty of a […]

Week in Review: Featuring Euro 2008, Sheffield Wednesday, Burnley, Manchester United, Newcastle United, the Web Awards and more…

Here’s everything that happened on City ‘Til I Die this week: Monday 23rd June 2008: Thomas Rooney ran the rule over the Euro 2008 semi-finalists. Tuesday 24th June 2008: On Tuesday we remembered a classic Sheffield Wednesday kit, learnt that Burnley still want Darel Russell and looked forward to the unveiling of City’s new away […]

Memorable Football Kits: Newcastle United 1995-97

In the mid-nineties Newcastle United were a lot of people’s second team due to the sort of attacking football introduced by Kevin Keegan, and this is definitely one of my favourite kits of the time. Granted you can’t really go too wrong with black and white stripes, but even so. I posted a video of […]

Daily Mail now claim West Brom are in for Ameobi

Last night the Daily Mail reported that West Brom have moved into pole-position to sign Shola Ameobi from Newcastle: West Brom have made a late approach for Shola Ameobi. The Newcastle forward still favours joining a club in the Premier League, despite Norwich City’s interest, and Tony Mowbray has the £3.5m to land the 26-year-old. […]

Are we about to pip Ipswich to the post and grab Ameobi from Newcastle?

I was settling down last night to watch Location, Location on V+ (I lead a very rock n’ roll lifestyle) when this popped up on NetNewsWire from the Daily Mail feed: Ameobi on brink of £3.5m deal to leave Newcastle for Norwich Norwich are on the verge of signing Newcastle forward Shola Ameobi in a […]

Shola’s “Mr. 10%” left to do the talking as Newcastle and Ipswich go quiet

Shola Ameobi’s agent Steven Denos says that no deal has been agreed between Newcastle and Ipswich regarding the sale of the striker, according to the Pink’un: As far as I’m concerned Ipswich have not put a bid in for Shola. There has certainly been no dialogue from Newcastle to me to the effect that a […]

Is business about to pick up as Newcastle apparently accept a bid from Ipswich for Ameobi?

The My Football Writer site is reporting that Ipswich boss Jim Magilton has had a £3.5m bid accepted by Newcastle for striker Shola Ameobi. Meanwhile the Pink’un say that the Toon have actually accepted a £4m bid from the Tractor Boys, and that Ameobi would be “more than willing” to talk to the Canaries. Glenn […]

What we have learned this weekend: 29th/30th March 08

It has been a weekend of confirmations if anything, so we’ll look at “what we have confirmed this weekend” instead: Derby are rubbish. Not much to argue there I think. The fact that the BBC website has an article up asking if they are the worse Premier League side in history says it all. Andy […]

Canary Classics: Norwich City 2 Newcastle United 1, 20th April 2005

In the second edition of Canary Classics we’re going back to the 2004/2005 season and a real humdinger of a game against Newcastle United. The game is a memorable one for me as it features one of the best goals I have ever seen in person from Youssef Safri, and the delight of an injury-time […]

Second biggest rivalry in football? You’d better believe it

According to the Football Rivalries Report 2008 the Norwich City/Ipswich Town rivalry is the second biggest and second most bitter in English league football. 99% of Canary fans and Tractor Boys name each other as their biggest rivals, which makes the Old Farm derby the most reciprocated rivalry in the game. The top 10 rivalries […]

What we have learned this weekend: 23rd/24th Feb 08

Somebody outside of the “big 4″ can win a trophy in England. Spurs upset the applecart to land the Carling Cup at Wembley yesterday, and deservedly so. Hucks and Roeder get on just fine. There is no rift, which means less column inches for journos (including us citizen ones) but I’d much rather that was […]

No more Newcastle signings?

It doesn’t look like we’ll be making any further signings from Newcastle this season then. I don’t know why but I still had a sneaky suspicion Shola Ameobi was going to waltz through the door and be the answer to our goalscoring prayers, but I should have known better. David Edgar and Andy Carroll look […]

Northern Rock

This isn’t a political blog. Don’t expect any deep, meaningful insight into the plight of Northern Rock and the merits of taking it into public ownership. I’ve just got one simple question about the whole situation: If Northern Rock are now publicly owned and they sponsor Newcastle United, does that mean we the people now […]
