Why Cabaye And Cheik Won’t Leave For Arsenal

  It’s the last Monday morning before the closing of the transfer window, and this can result in only one thing; the hysterical formulation and circulation of twitter rumours surrounding some our top players. Today’s subjects are our two central midfielders, Yohan Cabaye and Cheik Tiote, both of whom have been speculated over countless times previous. In particular, the ....

Could No Mean Yes When It Comes To Carroll?

Ever since that date, supporters and journalists alike have speculated about “if”, “when” and “how” the 23 year old striker would make a return to his boyhood club. The rumours have been seen most commonly on social network sites such as twitter, ....

Newcastle Fans – Think Before You Tweet

Monday night’s result was an absolute heartbreaker for all Newcastle fans, this much I am 100% sure we all agree on. Losing to a team in the dyeing seconds of a game is never an enjoyable experience and one which makes all us football fan’s react differently. Some fans, like me, will have sat there head in hands and in shock, perhaps even contemplating a little tear or two. Some, ....

Anzhi Makhachkala And Sunderland – The Similarities.

Perch 135 Minutes Of Football Later

  It’s amazing how much can change in such a small period of time. James Perch has been somewhat of a utility play since signing for Newcastle United, playing in a whole host of different positions, and that has been no different this season. Perch, who it is thought was signed as a right back, has played in central defence and more commonly centre midfield for Pardew this season. It ....

Counting Down The Days Till’ Papiss Returns

They’ve done it, would you believe it? I wrote an article just last week titled ‘Can a Striker Sneak in Under the Radar?’ And it turns out that yes, a striker most certainly can sneak under the radar and a world class striker at that. Papiss Cisse is a 26 year old Senegalese striker who since December 2009 has been applying his trade in the Bundesliga for Freiburg, a team that ....

Can A Striker Sneak In Under The Radar?

Before the January transfer window opened, Alan Pardew told Newcastle fans not to expect the arrival of a striker following the loss of Demba Ba to the African Cup of Nations. He stated that, “I don’t think we will be bringing a striker in in this window after the collapse of Maiga, which we had put a lot into”. In this interview with The Sun he went on to say, “As far as ....

Andy Carroll The Man We Love To Hate Rightly Or Wrongly?

Two ex Newcastle players have been popping up in the media regularly over the past 7 days or so; the two names mentioned being of course Andy Carroll and Joey Barton. The first name being mentioned in the mainstream media on the back of a Fabio Capello news conference in which the England manager told the press that the Liverpool striker’s lifestyle is a “problem” and that he ....

Demba Ba Is World Class

Demba Ba is World Class.   World class is a term that is overused on a daily basis. I myself am a serial offender of using the term far too regularly, on a Sunday morning I will congratulate another member of my amateur football team for a good tackle or accurate pass by telling them it was “world class”. It is only after the match when reflecting that I realise this statement ....

The Perfect Time Of Year For An Injury Crisis

Unfortunately, numerous university assignments and commitments I have prevented me from contributing to Toon Talk over the past few weeks; a few weeks in which an awful lot has happened. Pardew’s black and white army have faced three of the toughest tests that they will have to endure all season, have suffered countless injury blows and in the land of the unwashed we have witnessed the ....

Forever St. James Park

Forever St. James Park “The Sports Direct Arena” – four words that when muttered to a Newcastle fan will repulse them to their very core. In contrast, “St. James Park” – three small words that fill every Newcastle fan with overwhelming pride. If you are from the North East or have spent any period of time in this part of the British Isles you know that this ....

Pardew And The Power Of The Cliché

  So, we’re 11 games into this incredible season and all the football and sporting clichés under the sun have been used to describe Newcastle’s 11 game unbeaten run by fans, pundits, Pardew and the players. The manager’s most frequently used cliché being, “we will take each game as it comes” when replying to queries from the media as to whether or ....

Believe, Don’t Expect: A Word Of Warning.

At this moment in time the premier league table makes beautiful reading for any Newcastle united fan, that much is very clear and almost certainly cannot be disputed; the team has put in some sterling performances in both the league and in the Carling cup and this has excited us fans once again. Perhaps what encourages us fans the most is the manner in which all members of the squad appear to ....

Put Away The Panic Button And Put Things Into Perspective.

So, our performance against QPR and of course Joey Barton wasn’t the most exciting, enthralling or encouraging display; but by no means is it a reason for us fans to jump on the players’ backs and reach for our overused panic buttons. Many fans are refraining from doing this and are looking at the bigger picture, simply viewing the result from the QPR game as a useful and well earned ....

Ramadan – Featuring; Tiote, Ba And Ben Arfa

Many Newcastle fans at the beginning of this 2011 premier league season have expressed concern over the form of our two African footballers; Cheik Tiote of the Ivory Coast and Demba Ba of Senegal. Both players enjoyed successful seasons in 2011 with Tiote labelled by many as the buy of the season at a bargain price whilst Demba Ba scored 7 times in 12 appearances; a great achievement in a poor ....

A Lot Of Eggs In The Ben Arfa Basket?

Following the calamity of the recent transfer window and the seemingly unmotivated attempt from Newcastle United’s board to sign a striker it can definitely be said that much of the black and white’s goal threat this season will have to come from the ex Marseille man, Hatem Ben Arfa. The skilful wide man signed initially on loan by Chris Hughton has made only a handful of ....
