    StuW's Newcastle Guide - 11.3 Patch

    .: StuW's Newcastle United Guide :.

    Revised for 11.3 Patch

    Here is my NEW guide for Newcastle, revised by me for 11.3 Patch. This is how I play, but there are numerous ways of playing with any team, all with varying success.

    Club Name - Newcastle United Football Club
    Founded - 1892
    Chairman - Mike Ashley(Happy To Stay)
    Division - Premier League
    Last Season - 1st(Coca-Cola Championship)
    2010-2011 Prediction - 18th
    Fierce Rivals - Sunderland
    Other Rivals - Middlesbrough
    Traning Facilities - Good Facilities
    Youth Facilities - Average Facilities & Youth Academy


    Now, as you select Newcastle, you will need to choose the season expectations. You have SIX choices, with varying transfer and wage budgets -

    Avoid Relegation - 20m Transfer/875k p/w Wages
    Mid-Table Finish - 21m Transfer/875k p/w Wages
    Top Half Finish - 23m Transfer/925k p/w Wages
    Continental Qualification through League Finish - 25m Transfer/925k p/w Wages
    Title Challenge - 27m Transfer/925k p/w Wages
    Winner - 29m Transfer/950k p/w Wages

    Personally, I choose either Mid-Table Finish, or Top Half Finish, which are very much achievable, as is Continental Qualification with the right players.


    Assistant Manager - John Carver -
    John Carver is a good AM to start with, but I usually look for another quickly.

    Coaches - Willie Donachie & Peter Beardsley
    Peter will give a 3.5 in Attacking, although there are better coaches out there. Donachie should be released.

    GK Coach - Chris Terpcou & Andy Woodman
    Chris is OK, but long-term you need a 4.5 star in. Woodman isn't much either.

    Fitness Coaches - Jack Ade & Simon Tweddle -
    Get rid of both, poor stats mean they hinder rather than help.

    Youth Coaches - Joe Joyce -
    Joe will offer 3.5 star Tactical. I usually dispose of Joyce.

    Physios - Derek Wright, Carl Nelson, Davie Henderson, Michael Harding & Sean Beech
    - Release all but Derek Wright, who is IMO one of the best on the game.

    Scouts - Graham Carr & Norman Wooster -
    I only keep Graham Carr.



    Sidnei Lobo - Wonderful Assistant Manager, 4* Shooting.
    Paul Winsper - 5* Fitness Coach.
    Cassiano Luis - 5* Fitness. Is a Youth Coach, but will accept a Fitness Role.
    Ze Mario (Jose Mario Santos) - 5* GK Traning.
    Michelangelo Rampulla - 5* GK Training.
    Bernhard Peters - 4.5* Tactic. Is Youth Coach, but will sign as Coach.
    Narciso (Narciso dos Santos) - 4* Ball Control.
    Chico Fraga - 4* Attacking.
    Massimo Bonini - 4* Defending.


    Romeo Jozak
    Marcelo Barozzi
    Faustino Asprilla
    Glan Letheren
    Javi Rico
    Ruben Salles
    Simon Hunt
    - use for Scouting Future Opposition, due to high Tactical Knowledge

    Jack Ade
    Simon Tweddle
    Willie Donachie
    Andy Woodman
    Carl Nelson
    Davie Henderson
    Michael Harding
    Sean Beech
    Norman Wooster


    I will split it down positionally, and I will recommend who to keep, buy and sell.


    1 - Steve Harper
    26 - Tim Krul

    I find that the current goalkeepers will get you through the first season, with Steve Harper usually 1st choice. If you wish, you can look at a loan, or a free transfer to bolster your options.

    Vincent Enyeama - H. Tel-Aviv - 230k

    Ole Soderberg - 150k/loan


    2 - Fabricio Coloccini
    3 - Jose Enrique
    5 - Sol Campbell
    6 - Mike Williamson
    12 - Danny Simpson
    14 - James Perch
    16 - Ryan Taylor
    27 - Steven Taylor
    28 - Tamas Kadar

    The defence is usually enough for the first season, should you want to use the funds elsewhere. Jose Enrique and Simpson will be your 1st Full-backs, with Coloccini and Steven Taylor/Mike Williamson in the middle. Generally, Sol will be backup/experience for any youth, and will be released at the end of season. Kadar will turn good, so don't be tempted to cash in on him, just send out on loan, along with Perch. Look for Backup to Jose, and if you wish, Simpson should you cash in on R. Taylor.

    Peter Masilela - M. Haifa - 150k (DL)
    Cornel Rapa - Otelul Galati - 1m (DR)
    Ryan Shawcross - Stoke - 12m (DC) - I have asked the board to purchase him, and the accepted, only do this when Transfer Budget is low.

    Ryan Taylor - 1.5m
    James Perch - January, free if you have to.
    Tamas Kadar - loan, NO BUY CLAUSES


    4 - Kevin Nolan
    7 - Joey Barton
    8 - Danny Guthrie
    15 - Dan Gosling
    17 - Alan Smith
    18 - Jonas
    24 - Cheick Tiote
    37 - Hatem Ben Arfa

    I generally go with this Midfield, plus one or two buys for the wings. Barton and Nolan should be more than capable in MC, and Ben Arfa is you creative star here, and you should look to incorporate him, whether you play an AMC, or re-train to AMR or MC.


    Gabriel Torje - Dinamo Bucharest - 3.5m - AMR
    Pavel Niakhaichyk - BATE Borisov - 1.3m - AMR/L/C
    Martin Zeman - Sparta Prague - 1m - AML
    Fabrice Abriel - Marseille - loan 65k - MC

    Danny Guthrie - 1.5m
    Alan Smith - 2m
    Dan Gosling - loan


    11 - Peter Lovenkrands
    19 - Nile Ranger
    20 - Leon Best
    23 - Shola Ameobi
    42 - Shefki Kuqi

    Now without the real threat of Carroll, this is where the bulk of your cash needs to be used. Leon Best will serve as good backup, as will Lovenkrands, Ameobi and Kuqi, however, I usually put Kuqi into reserves, and try and dispose of him in January. Ranger is a talented player, and can be used rotationally, or as I do, loaned out.


    Christian Benitez - Santos Laguna - 4-5m
    Ulises Davila - Chivas Guadalajara - 2.1m
    Connor Wickham - Ipswich - 3.5m
    Tomas Necid - CSKA Moscow - 5m
    Vagner Love - CSKA Moscow - 8-9m
    Vaclav Kadlec - Sparta Prague - 1m


    Newcastle have a diverse squad, which can be adapted to most tactics. I prefer a 4-4-2, or a 4-5-1, both of which are listed in resources at the bottom.


    I use the default, which work a lot better than recent default trainings. If you prefer another, with more specific, I would go with Dunc's Training, which is listed below in the resources list.


    I usually ask for Youth Facilities upgrade firstly, and then ask for Training Facilities after.

    Not too important, but you can ask for a higher Percentage of Transfer Revenue.

    I tend to ask the board for a Feeder Club. Choose the option which suits you, although I usually pick the Work Permits one for obvious reasons.
    Also, return a few days later, and ask to Upgrade Youth Recruitment Network.


    Here, you will find the stuff I personally reccomend -

    Dunc's Training

    4-5-1(by zhengnian)

    4-4-2(by StuW)

    FMT Logos(by StuW)

    Tyrfing Skin(by Michael Murray)

    LFCMarshall's January Update


    Dunc - for the best training schedule available.

    If there is anything you think should be added, please post below, and I will add and credit accordingly.

    Great guide mate, will use this now !

  9. I'd suggest Dennis Appiah as a possible transfer. Simpson is decent, but Appiah is cheap and can often outperform him from the start. Also I think Ryan Taylor can still do a job in the team, especially if you teach him the bullet throw. Might want to mention Forster in the GK area too, even though you can't use him for a season.

  10. Will use this if i do a newcastle save good job mate another tip i found out on the old pacth is if you say bid 5 million on shawcross as an example you can put in 9 more million pay over 48 months and not just on shawcross i spent well over 52million once by using this .
