  4. November Update



    Today, we bring you the November update for Newcastle's game from nufc.co.uk.


    Arsenal 2-2 Newcastle
    Steven Taylor
    Romelu Lukaku

    Newcastle started the month of November with a game that could not come much harder, away at the Emirates and no-one gave them a cat in hells chance. It was the underdogs that opened the scoring after the returning Steven Taylor headed home from a corner. Three minutes after half time, the little Russian, Arshabin equalised for the home side. Five minutes after the hour mark, the Gunners found themselves with a 2-1 lead and it looked over for the Magpies. However, all was not lost when Romelu Lukaku struck home two minutes from time to give Newcastle a brilliant point.

    Newcastle 4-1 Blackburn
    Romelu Lukaku (3)
    Jonás

    After coming off the back of a tremendous draw at the Emirates, Newcastle hosted Blackburn. Just over half an hour into he game, Belgian superstar Lukaku struck home to give the home side a lead. Three minutes, he popped up again to double their lead. Ten minutes into the second half, Lukaku wrapped up the game with a fine finish to give him his second match ball of the season. Junior Hoilett scored a consolation for Rovers before Jonás made it four for the delighted Toon fans.

    Newcastle 3-0 Fulham
    Vaclav Kadlec
    Fabricio Collocini
    Hatem Ben Arfa

    After an easy victory at St James' on their last visit, Toon hosted Fulham this time in a Premier League game. Vaclav Kadlec opened the scoring to put Shearer's men in front inside half an hour. The Toon doubled their lead just before half time through a Collocini header, making Shearer's team talk much easier. The second half did not brag many chances, with Ben Arfa grabbing a third for the Magpies to seal a 3-0 win.

    Bolton 1-3 Newcastle
    Vaclav Kadlec (2)
    Romelu Lukaku

    After two comfortable victories at home, it was time for Toon fans on the road again as they travelled to Bolton. The journey was proving the wait after Kadlec netted after just six minutes. After half an hour, Lukaku doubled the lead and the Toon took full control of the match. Daniel Sturridge put the result back into jeopardy with a 77th minute strike but Kadlec completed his brack two minutes into stoppage time with a delightful finish.

    Newcastle 2-0 Chelsea
    Alex (o.g)
    Hatem Ben Arfa

    In their last game of the month, Alan Shearer's Newcastle team were looking to carry on their brilliant form in a tricky home game against Chelsea. Things started fantastically for Newcastle when Alex put the ball into his own net after just four minutes. After the goal, Chelsea started to pile on the pressure but they just could not take their chances. On a great counter attack, Hatem Ben Arfa doubled the home sides lead four minutes before the break. Newcastle hung on for the unexpected three points.

    Magpies Stall in September

    Manager Nick van Aalst's second month at Newcastle has come to an end, and it is not looking good early for the young Australian.

    ---

    Newcastle 0-1 Aston Villa
    Premier League
    St. James' Park


    Aston Villa made the trip up north for the first match of September, and they brought their 'A-Game'. Although Newcastle probably deserved to win, it was Aston Villa that walked away with the three points on the day, proving that it's not how many shots you take, it's the quality of the shots. Newcastle still need to improve their finishing if they are going to challenge some teams.

    ---

    Newcastle 0-5 Manchester United
    Premier League
    Old Trafford

    Newcastle's first trip to Manchester for the season provided no shocks, as Man Utd walked away with an easy three points after dominating the entire game. Wayne Rooney grabbed to goals in the embarrassment, while Guillermo Ochoa scored a contentious own goal and James Tavernier got sent off for a second bookable offence. This result has left question marks over Nick van Aalst's role as manager at Newcastle.

    ---

    Newcastle 2-1 Arsenal
    League Cup 3rd Round
    St. James' Park

    A goal in the first and last five minutes sealed the suprise victory for Newcastle in front of the home crowd. Joey Barton opened the scoring after a brilliant run from van der Wiel, with a well struck effort from just inside the box. The lead lasted for seventy-eight minutes, before a Sol Campbell own goal made extra-time look inevitable. That was all forgotten however, as in the second minute of injury time, Sol Campbell redeemed himself with a textbook header to send Newcastle into the fourth round where they will play Aston Villa, at St. James' Park.

    Joey Barton was also injured for 3-4 days.



    ---

    Newcastle 2-1 Fulham
    Premier League
    St. James' Park


    For the second time in three days, Newcastle walked away with a win at St. James' Park, although this time it won them three points. Newcastle dominated the opening stages of the game, but could not convert their pressure into goals, and it was Danny Murphy who opened the scoring for Fulham from the penalty spot. Newcastle manager Nick van Aalst was fuming at his sides inability to score, and he brought on Dale Jennings to see if that would change, it did. Dale Jennings tied the score up with twenty minutes left, before he forced the own goal to give Newcastle the 2-1 lead with ten minutes left. Dale Jennings was named MOM and a petition was started for him to start more matches!

    ---

    That was the end of Nick van Aalst's second month as Newcastle manager, and it ended well after a shaky start. Could Newcastle be turning it around? Only next month will tell. Newcastle now sit in 17th in the Premier League, one spot above the relegation zone.

    Newcastle shape up in October!

    Nick van Aalst's Newcastle team have finally improved, a little bit, and now he is now looking safe in his job at the helm of the Toon, almost.

    ---

    Newcastle 0-3 Everton
    Premier League
    Goodison Park


    Not a good start to the month for van Aalst and the Toon, but this match had some good glimpses for Newcastle, especially substitute Dale Jennings, again. Newcastle's short little winning streak, (two games), had come to an end, but it's only one loss, could they overcome this hurdle, or would they fall again?

    ---

    Newcastle 3-1 Tottenham
    Premier League
    St. James' Park


    Not how the scoreline shows it. Guillermo Ochoa saved Newcastle numerous time in the first fifteen-twenty minutes, and eventually Tottenham broke down. A quick counter-attack allowed Dale Jennings to score the opening goal of the game, his debut. This was followed up with a Sol Campbell header to put Newcastle 2-0 up. Tottenham looked set to comeback with a William Gallas goal just before the half, and it was game on. Jonas sealed the game ten minutes into the second half with a very neat finish that sent all of St. James' Park into raptures. Game Over!

    ---

    Newcastle 3-0 Wigan
    Premier League
    St. James' Park


    Three goals, three scorers and three points, three reasons to love Newcastle! The first goal game in the second half, after Newcastle squandered many chances in the first half, including a Jose Enrique penalty smashed onto the crossbar. Kevin Nolan eventually broke the deadlock with an absolute sublime chip, (shown below), before Jonas scored an equally impressive solo run to make it 2-0, (again show below). Hatem Ben Arfa rounded up all three points in injury time to make it a wonderful day out for all Newcastle fans.

    Newcastle 0-3 Aston Villa
    League Cup 4th Round
    St. James' Park


    A very disappointing game for Newcastle, they didn't really make an impression all match long, and it only took one Villa goal to open the flood gates for two more. Nick van Aalst must be wondering how his side has fallen to this sort of form!

    ---

    Newcastle 0-1 Blackburn
    Premier League
    Ewood Park


    Another very disappointing match for the Toon, the one shining ray of light in Newcastle's performance, Guillermo Ochoa. He kept the score respectable, and a times, he astonished even the refereeing staff!

    Jose Enrique was also injured for 6-7 weeks.

    ---

    The third month of the season is over, and the Toon have found where they will hover around for the rest of the season, most likely. They have risen two places to 15th on the table.

  9. Bolton 2-1 Newcastle
    Klasnic puts sword to opening day win!


    Klasnic and Mark Davies celebrate late strike

    As the new season dawned on the Reebok stadium many felt that this was going to be an interesting first game of the season. With Bolton no longer playing 'hoof' ball under Coyle and Jim Jefferies the new man at the helm for Newcastle, it was all to play for.

    But like history would suggest, Newcastle were paid a visit by their oldest friend, Mr.consistency. After having a fantastic pre-season which seen new boys Maikon Leite and Neymar score a few, they started vert poorly.

    Bolton dominated the opening stages and even created a few chances. The first came when Martin Petrov robbed James Perch on the wing and cut inside. Initially the fans were holding their breath for a strike from the Bulgarian but he instead slid a cracking through ball into the path of Johan Elmander. The Sweede however missed the chance to grab his side the lead and stuck the ball wide of the goal from 6 yards out. Coyle came charging from the touchline to scream at his forward, it was a poor finish indeed.

    And the finishing didn't get any better. Keven Davies had a good chance but squandered a header from 7 yards. After a great cross from Petrov again, Davies found himself above Williamson and heading towards goal. His shot though was stopped by Newcastle keeper Steve Harper.

    Things didn't look good for Newcastle. This was summed up when Ben Arfa dribbled towards the goal. He slid a pass to Maikon Leite who then progressed towards goal. With the away section anticipating a goal from the Brazilian, he in turn slid it to Neymar. As the youngster ran towards the ball, he immdiately pulled up and fell to the ground in great despair. Sportingly Gary Cahill removed the ball from open play and allowed Neymar to recieve apporiate treatment. He was sadly then carried off and was replaced by youngster Phil Airey.

    But finally Bolton grabbed a deserved lead. After a good one-two between Petrov and Elmander, the Bulgarian progessed into swinging the ball into the middle. A routine clearance became a problem when Jose Enrique totally misjudged the flight of the ball and missed his header. The ball fell kindly the the skipper Davies' feet. He replied with grace and poise, not typical from Davies but nonetheless placed the ball well out of Harper's reach and into the bottom left corner. 24 minutes in and finally a goal was no doubt the fans reaction.

    Although it then appeared that the goal in which they had conceaded had sparked new life into the Geordie outfit. Short and quick passing in the midfield was greeted with pleasure by a fast thinking and moving attacking line. The chances came. The first was for youngster Phil Airey who made a hash of some wondeful Joey Barton play. The newly appointed captain found himself driving at the Bolton defence. With Airey in yards of space, Barton proceded to slip the ball to him. One on one with Jussi Jääskeläinen. In a battle of whits, the keeper provailed and the young prospect bottled under the pressure.

    Not to worry. A few moments later Tiote gathered the ball and played it to Ben Arfa. On the spin, the Frenchman struck the ball from 25-30 yards out. It struck Muamba and made its way out for a corner. The away support cheered and clapped furiously to try and spur on their team. It worked. Ben Arfa whipped an in-swinging cross in which was met by the head of MIke Williamson. He simply held a finger to his lips to the home support as his teammates grabbed him from all directions.


    'Goal meant nothing due to loss.'
    - Mike Williamson

    The game stayed stale for large patches of the game. No team could grab a hold of play whilst also trying to knock the ball around and pass it. It was in the end, a cruel way to lose. An 89th minute strike from the Croatian Ivan Klasnic which handed Bolton all 3 points on the opening day. Mark Davies had gathered the ball on the half way line and progessed forward. He played it out wide to Petrov who then started to run at Perch. After a deflected cross found the feet of Klasnic on the edge of the box, the striker clearly had one thing on his mind. He swiveled, he struck, he scored. A devastating left footed striker thunderbolted itself into the top right hand corner.

    Coyle said a fair result would have been a draw whilst Jefferies admitted he was disappointed and worried about the injur Neymar had suffered.

  12. Newcastle 0-5 Chelsea
    Torres more than impressive for blues!


    Torres shows it's just another day at the office

    You certainly couldn't blame Newcastle for wanting to prove a point against Chelsea. They went out with the intention to win, but in the end, class came above spirit.

    And as the class shown, so did the sparkling forward line of Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba. The mention of two of the deadliest forwards in the world would surely be enough to frighten any CB pairing. Well today I think it did more than just frighten Newcastle, it destroyed them.

    It certainly didn't start well. An early build up of possesion from Chelsea lead to a delightful through ball from Malouda to find the Ivorian Didier Drogba who smashed the ball home to make it 1-0 to Chelsea. He celebrated by waving his arms in a gesture to emply 'game over.' Drogba though has done this before. It sparked annoyance from the Newcastle players and bench, though the FA have already stated that no action will be taken as there is not enough evidence to emply offence was meant to be caused.

    Things got bad to worse when Torres then netted a brace. The Spainard recently completed a British record fee of £50million from Liverpool to Chelsea and struggled during pre-season to find any sort of form to head into the new season. But the Torres that stepped onto St. James' Park today was what people will called the 'old' one. He was strong, quick and deadly which was highlighted by his brace. His first came from a corner via Frank Lampard. The kick fell kindly to his feet on the 6 yard box which, in fairness, you wouldn't want it to fall to anyone else. 2-0, and it already looked gloom for the Toon.

    His second came via a darting run down the line from Ashley Cole. The attacking full back then played the ball in-field to Lampard, who in turn found Malouda before knocking it to Torres to cooly slot home into the corner from 12 yards out. The above picture was Torres' celebration, not quite like his iconic knee slide which he developed at Anfield.

    After the break Chelsea pilled on the misery for the Geordie faithful. The 4th came from a header from Branslav Ivanovic. A free kick taken by Yossi Benyaoun was greeted by the Serbian who rocketed the ball past a helpless Steve Harper. The final goal in this compelling rout was finished by 'Le Sulk' himself, Nicolas Anelka. He recently expressed his lack of pleasure in the signing of Torres and admitted he was looking and keeping his eye else where. He celebrated by simply walking back to the halfway line and shrugging of team-mates who tried to grab him. Unlike his celebration, his goal was a good one. Finding himself isolated on the right wing, he ran at Jose Enrique. After getting past the LB, he drilled a low shot from the edge of the box across the keeper and netted in style.

    In other news for Newcastle, Brazilian forward Neymar has suffered a torn calf muscle and will be out for 3 months. Jefferies admitted it was a cruel, cruel blow for both parties, Newcastle and the youngster. He had recently earned his 1st cap for Brazil whilst also making his competitive debut for Newcastle. He recently featured in a Nike advert in which it states 'Write the Future'. Lets hope Neymar writes the future for Newcastle in the near future.

  17. December Update



    Here is the nufc.co.uk update for December for Newcastle United's fixtures.


    West Brom 2-1 Newcastle
    Vaclev Kadlec

    After a great month in November, Newcastle kicked off December with an away game at fellow newly promoted side West Brom. Things did not start well for Shearer's side as Chris Brunt gave the home side the lead after just four minutes. Three minutes later though, Vaclev Kadlec equalised for the Magpies and sent the away end into raptures. It was the last cheer they would have in the match however, as Brunt gave West Brom the lead and the win with half an hour left to play.

    Newcastle 1-1 Sunderland
    Garra Dembelé

    Next up in the month for Shearer's Newcastle team was the Tyne and Wear derby against Sunderland. This was a game where the fans would be on Shearer's back if his team slumped to a loss. It was looking that way when Danny Welbeck gave Sunderland the lead after just a minute. Six minutes later, Dembelé equalised for the Toon. For the rest of the game, Sunderland created many chances, but it was enough to get past Steve Harper as the Magpies held onto a draw in the Derby.

    Newcastle 2-2 Liverpool
    Vaclev Kadlec
    Garra Dembelé

    In their third game of the month, Newcastle United faced off against Liverpool in the league. Toon started well in the game, creating a few chances before Kadlec opened the scoring just short of the twenty minute mark. The Magpies took a one goal lead into half time but it was not long before an equaliser came. David N'Gog poked it home from short range. Just two minutes later though, Kadlec was fouled in the box and Newcastle were given a penalty. Garra Dembelé smashed it down the left hand side of the keeper to give Shearer's side the lead again. It looked all but over until Dirk Kuyt struck home three minutes into added time to steal a draw for the Merseysiders.

    Birmingham 1-4 Newcastle
    Garra Dembelé
    Jonás
    Kevin Nolan
    Shola Ameobi

    Newcastle headed to Birminingham to try and secure their first win in December. It did not look good though, when David Bentley handed Birmingham the lead forty one minutes in. In the last kick of the half though, in form Dembelé equalised for Toon. Alan Shearer must have given some firm words at half time as the Magpies came out firing. Ten minutes after they returned from the break, Jonás gave them the lead. Kevin Nolan sooner doubled the lead with a brilliant strike. Shola Ameobi completed the scoring and an excellent second half performance by Newcastle, sealing a 4-1 win.

    Newcastle 2-0 Manchester City
    Garra Dembelé
    Steven Taylor

    To end the year, Alan Shearer's side hosted title hopfuls Manchester City. The first half was a very equal affair as both sides shared the chances. The second half though, Shearer's side came out firing. After a couple of missed chances early on, Dembelé shot home just after the hour mark. After withstanding some heavy pressure, Steven Taylor headed home to double Newcastle's lead and hand them a great win.

  20. Newcastle 3-3 Charlton (Newcastle win on pens)
    The Toon finally enjoy some success!


    Barton and Nolan celebrate the opener


    Heading into the game Newcastle had been on a terrible run of form. 2 defeats in 2 games had left confidence a bit shaken under new manager Jim Jefferies. Newly promoted under Hughton, many wrote them off along with Blackpool and WBA. Today they had the chance to laugh off the doubters.

    Things again though didn't start well as Charlton took off from the blocks quicker with a convincing 3-0 lead before HT. It was courtasy of a wonderful hat-trick from new boy Bradley Wright-Phillips, the younger brother of Shaun and son of Ian Wright former Arsenal forward.

    His first came after 12 minutes when an excellent passing move from the Londoners led Christian Daily to feed a pass to WP who then beat Williamson and scored by passing the ball across the keeper and into the bottom corner. Boo's were then heard all around St. James Park as Jim Jefferies side continued to heavily underperform.

    WP took his second very well. After cutting in from the left he took on Ryan Taylor. He left the RB in his wake as he progessed onto beating Williamson again before playing a one-two with Semedo on the edge of the box. With Tim Krul in his way, he easily chipped the ball over the top of the Dutchman. Although only 27 minutes had been played, many fans were already spotted heading for the exit. Jim Jefferies was simply caught with his head in his hands.

    His 3rd was a scrappy, scrappy goal. AFter a corner had been drifted in a failed clearnace from Phil Airey led WP to toe poke his 3rd home and celebrate by sticking 3 fingers over his mouth and taunting the Geordie faithful. Jefferies needed to get some sort of response from his side at HT because for him, and the club, this was becoming embarresing.

    The second half produced a new Newcastle. Led out by Barton and Nolan, the CM pairing were fired up and came out and hit Charlton hard. The League 1 outfit find it difficult to cope with the Premier League sides class and eventually caved under pressure. Newcastle's first came from Joey Barton, a 30 yard monster which flew past Rob Elliot. Barton(seen above and below) celebrated with Nolan and tried to motivate the rest of the team.


    Barton after final whistle

    Things got even better when Spainish LB Jose Enrique netted a simple tap-in from 3 yards out. After Nolan had played through Maikon Leite, the Brazilian had his shot saved before the attacking LB capatilized and netted for Newcastle. With 30 minutes left the remaining fans in the ground could no doubt smell the comeback. Jefferies was on the touchline screaming instructions.

    And it finally paid off. The makeshift CB pairing of Williamson and Kadar came up trumps when the young Hungarian scored a header from a Steven Ireland corner. The Newcastle fans were in raptures as there side had pulled off a stunning achievement with this comeback. Could they now win this?

    They did so by taking it to penalties. It was then Steven Ireland who was the hero by scoring the 5th penalty which set up and away tie at Portsmouth for Newcastle. Jefferies admitted after the came despite the revival his side produced they should have been dead and burried and must improve for the away trip to fierce rivals Sunderland.

    New Newcastle in November

    A bit of an up and down month in November, but Newcastle have looked a different side, and many have asked, are they finally on the up?

    ---

    Newcastle 0-2 Wolves
    Premier League
    St. James' Park

    A huge upset at St. James' Park, and after a dominant performance from the Toon, it was Wolves who walked away with the win, and the three points. Newcastle had more possession, shots, clear cut chances, even more corners than the opposition, but Wolves did not care, and they went on to win 2-0 in the end. Manager Nick van Aalst will be wondering how his side lost after such a good performance, and again, Newcastle will be shooting at practice!

    ---

    Newcastle 3-0 Blackpool
    Premier League
    Bloomfield Road


    Stephen Ireland grabbed two and Dale Jennings grabbed another in a brilliant performance away from home. A second dominant game in a row for the Toon, and Nick van Aalst will be much happier with his sides finishing today, and will be hoping they can take this form into the rest of the month with big games against Man City and Chelsea coming up in the near future.

    ---

    Newcastle 2-2 Birmingham
    Premier League
    St. James' Park


    A first and last minute goal from Birmingham was enough to give both sides a point each, and left Newcastle fans leaving St. James' Park very disappointed giving away a last second goal. Jo got his first Toon goal for the season, and Coloccini grabbed the other two give Newcastle a point. Newcastle's finishing was a bit better this game, but their defence was questionable, more things to work on at the training ground.

    ---

    Newcastle 1-3 Man City
    Premier League
    The City of Manchester Stadium


    A last minute Hatem Ben Arfa goal adding some respect to the scoreline, though Newcastle deserved little more than that. Man City will be disappointed with the goal conceded late, but three early goals made sure that they were safe, and that they had three points in the bag. Newcastle must improve for the last game of the month against Chelsea.

    ---

    Newcastle 2-1 Chelsea
    Premier League
    St. James' Park


    A brilliant win for Newcastle in their fight for survival, and a key step in saving Newcastle's manager Nick van Aalst. Hatem Ben Arfa opened the scoring with Newcastle's second shot, before Jonas doubled that lead with Newcastle's fifth shot on target out of five shots. Nick van Aalst looked very proud of his side, especially Guillermo Ochoa's performance to save his side. Salomon Kalou made it a very tense last half hour, but Newcastle held strong to please the fans with a huge three points.

    ---

    The Toon are still sitting in 15th place, and now they are starting to look like a Premier League quality side, but they will need to improve on both ends before they can think about next season.

  30. January Transfers



    January came around and it was due to be an exciting period for Alan Shearer's high flying Newcastle team. Just ten days into the window, Alan Shearer made the move to bring Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey to the club on a loan until the end of the season. The loan will cost the Toon £1 million. Next, Leon Best left the club for a fee of £2,700,000 to Wigan. Best was only rumoured to be back up at St James' Park since Shearer joined the club. Next, Mike Williamson was on his way out of the club, leaving for Celtic for £1,800,000. One day before the window closed, Alan Shearer made the move to sign Lucas from Sao Paulo for £8,500,000. It seems as a bit risky but the Brazilian is believed to have the world at his feet.

    Newcastle confirm Jorgensen signing!

    Even though it is only December, Newcastle are already looking towards the transfer window by making a pre-transfer for Danish defender Mathias Jorgensen.



    20yr old Mathias Jorgensen has put pen to paper by signing a pre-transfer agreement with Newcastle United, that will go through on the 1st of January. Newcastle were said to have no transfer budget left, but the rumour going round is that manager Nick van Aalst asked his board to sort out all the details of the transfer that will help shore up his defensive troubles. The final fee is thought to be around £3,200,000 for the young center back, and now the question is, will Newcastle be selling any defenders to make way for the youngster?

    Not a December to remember

    A winless month for van Aalst and his team, although good performances against Arsenal and Liverpool provided some hope, though many fans are calling for his head after the collapse agaisnt Sunderland

    ---

    Newcastle 0-4 Sunderland
    Premier League
    Stadium of Light


    Coloccini sent off, van der Wiel lucky to have not been, an Asamoah Gyan brace, a penalty from Harry Kewell and a Lee Cattermole wonder free kick was the worst day out the Newcastle fans could have imagined. They collapsed at the hands of their bitter rivals, and Nick van Aalst's job is in danger just like that, but can the Newcastle players bounce back?

    ---

    Newcastle 0-0 Bolton
    Premier League
    St. James' Park

    A bore 0-0 draw. Newcastle still looked very shaky after their previous thrashing, and Bolton could not capitalise on this and both teams left with a point each.

    ---

    Newcastle 2-3 Liverpool
    Premier League
    St. James' Park


    A Raul Meireles own goal, and a Dale Jennings goal gave Newcastle a 2-1 lead with less than fifteen minutes left, but a Steven Gerrard and a second Andy Carrol goal gave Liverpool a 3-2 win in the dying seconds at the Toon's home ground. A pretty devastating loss, could have been the chance for Newcastle to bounce back after two bad games, but now their winless run looks to continue.



    ---

    Newcastle 1-1 Arsenal
    Premier League
    Emirates Stadium

    Another win snatched away from Newcastle, and fans are now wondering, can they hold onto a win at all? Dale Jennings scored, what looked like, the winner with ten minutes left, but van Persie struck right back to ensure both sides shared the points. Newcastle will be somewhat happy with their performance, however they will be left wondering what went wrong.

    ---

    Newcastle 1-1 West Brom
    Premier League
    St. James' Park


    Newcastle gave away two more points in front of the home fans, and manager van Aalst will have to be working on fitness at training to ensure his team goes the full ninety minutes. Hatem Ben Arfa scored the opener, only to have Odemwingie cancel it out and gave yet another point to Newcastle.

    ---

    Six points in three games taken away at the end of December, and things must improve heading into 2011 if Newcastle want Premier League football next season, however, they still sit in 15th position.

  40. January Update



    Here is the update for Newcastle's first month of 2011, courtesy of nufc.co.uk

    Wigan 0-4 Newcastle
    Jon Inge Hoiland (o.g)
    Romelu Lukaku (2)
    Vaclav Kadlec

    Newcastle started the new year with an away trip to Wigan. Although it looked a tricky little game on paper, the Magpies were rampant. It all started when Hoiland put it into his own net to gift Toon the lead after just five minutes. Ten minutes later, Lukaku doubled their lead and they were cruising. Two minutes after the break, Lukaku made it three before Kadlec completed the scoring eith the fourth goal just five minutes later. A fantastic win for Shearer's team.


    Tottenham 2-3 Newcastle
    Hatem Ben Arfa
    Sebastián Coates
    Romelu Lukaku

    Newcastle faced off against Spurs in another home game in their second game of the year, this time against Spurs. Things started great for Toon as they took the lead after just 2 minutes through Hatem Ben Arfa. Magpies fans were jubilant when Coates headed home to double the away teams lead just five minutes later. An extra five minutes later, Toon were in dreamland as Lukaku made it three and surely put the game beyond doubt with a lovely strike. Shearer's side were given a late panic though, after Jermain Defoe scored just after the hour mark. He then scored ten minutes later and Toon were hanging by a thread for their win. They got it in the end, and what a great win it was.

    FA Cup Third Round

    Newcastle 2-2 Scunthorpe
    Shola Ameobi
    Romelu Lukaku

    Alan Shearer treated this FA Cup game as a run out for the players on the fringes of the first team and they did take the lead after 14 minutes through Shola Ameobi. Twelve minutes later though, Scunthorpe equalised through David Mirfin. Twenty five minutes into the second half, the Championship side took the lead through a Coates mistake and Shearer was forced to bring on the big guns. It worked, Romelu Lukaku popped up four minutes from time to hand the Toon a deserved replay.

    Newcastle 2-1 West Ham
    Vaclev Kadlec
    Romelu Lukaku

    Newcastle returned in the league for their next game to take on West ham United at St James's Park in a game Alan Shearer had really expected to win. It did not look good though, when James Tomkins headed home for the away side after 17 minutes. After some constant heavy pressure for the rest of the game, Toon finally grabbed the equaliser with ten minutes to play through Vaclav Kadlec. Romelu Lukaku went on to snatch the game from the Hammers grasps with a ninety second minute goal, to steal the win.

    Sunderland 3-0 Newcastle

    The next game in the month came as bitter rivals clashed at the Stadium of Light. This game was one where the home side landed the spoils as only one team took their chances on the day. Record signing Pablo Piatti gave them the lead a minute into first half added time. Asamoah Gyan then doubled the lead just after the hour mark. After eighty two minutes, Christián Benitez completed the scoring, to give the Black Cats an impressive win.

    FA Cup Third Round Replay

    Scunthorpe 0-4 Newcastle
    Romelu Lukaku
    Fabricio Coloccini
    Vaclav Kadlec
    Jonás

    The next game in the month came in the shape of an FA Cup replay and there was no messing around this time for Shearer's side. Romelu Lukaku gave the visitors the lead just short of the twenty minute mark. Fabricio Coloccini then doubled the lead just after the half hour mark. A minute after coming back from half time, Kadlec made it three then just ten minutes later, Jonás completed a great move to strike home and give his team a 4-0 win to send them flying into the fourth round.

    Newcastle 3-2 Tottenham
    Garra Dembelé
    Vaclav Kadlec
    Shola Ameobi

    For the second time in the month, Newcastle were to face off against Spurs, this time at St James' Park, Toon's backyard. The returning Garra Dembelé gave the Magpies the lead inside the first quarter of an hour. One minute before half time, Kadlec doubled the lead and it was all set for a second Toon win in a month over Redknapp's team. It was thrown into doubt though, when Rafael Van der Vaart struck home five minutes after they resumed play. Eight minutes from time, Vaart struck again and it looked all set to be heading towards a draw. This was when substitute Shola Ameobi popped up to smash home the winner, just four minutes from time.

    FA Cup Fourth Round

    Liverpool 2-1 Newcastle
    Garra Dembelé

    After the rampant in against Scunthorpe, Alan Shearer's boys travelled to Merseyside to take on Liverpool in the fourth round. David N'Gog netted the opener after just fourteen minutes and everything looked to be going the hosts way. This was until, four minutes after half time, Dembelé struck home to tie the match. Eight minutes from time, N'Gog was brought down fin the box and the referee pointed to the spot. A penalty from Steven Gerrard powered into the top corner saw the Toon crash out of the FA Cup at the second hurdle.

We are now lieing in fifth and only one point off of 4th place, a brilliant position for us.


    Player of the Month



    Romelu Lukaku was January's player of the month for the Toon. He was in emphatic form, scoring six goals in the six games he was involved with before getting a niggling injury.

  44. February Update



    Here is nufc.co.uk's February update from the Toon's recent results

    Fulham 3-1 Newcastle
    Hatem Ben Arfa

    In the Toon's first game of the month, they travelled south to the capital to face off against Fulham. Things looked to start very well for Shearer's team as Ben Arfa struck home after just two minutes. Nine minutes later though, Clint Dempsey equalised. Seven minutes later, Newcastle went behind due to a Danny Murphy finish. Eleven minutes after this, Diomansy Kamara effectively put the game to bed with a brilliant strike. A poor start to the month from the Toon.

    Newcastle 1-5 Arsenal
    Vaclav Kadlec

    The next game in February did not come any easier as the Magpies hosted Arsenal. Marouane Chamakh gave the visitors the lead after just a quarter of an hour. Four minutes later, Tomas Rosicky doubled their lead. Five minutes after the half an hour mark, Chamakh had put the game to bed with two more strikes to complete his hat trick. On the hour mark, Vaclav Kadlec gave the home fans a goal to celebrate but four minutes later, Andrey Arshavin completed the scoring for a 5-1 win.

    Blackburn 5-1 Newcastle
    Vaclav Kadlec

    Newcastle were on the road next and this time, they faced off against Blackburn. After half an hour, Shearer's side found themselves in the lead after a Kadlec strike. Nine minutes later though, Santa Cruz had levelled it with a penalty strike. In the fourht minute of added time, Coloccini was sent off in what proved to be an expensive mistake for his side. The Rovers ripped the Magpies apart in the second half, scoring four goals to take the game by five goals to one.

    Newcastle 2-0 Bolton
    Jonás (2)

    After three horrible results earlier in the month, Shearer's team finished the month with a home game against Bolton Wanderers, a game that the Toon legend would be really hopeful of winning. In a dominant first half, the Magpies struggled to find a way past stopper Jussi Jaaskelainen. Twenty five minutes into the second half, Jonás found himself free of the defence and struck home to give his side the lead. Newcastle continued to press and only found another goal, three minutes into added time after Jonás struck again.

    January Transfer Update - Newcastle United

    One transfer in and one transfer out in January for Newcastle and young manager Nick van Aalst is all about strengthening his defence for the second half of the season.

    Leon Best was the one to leave, and he described his move as a 'relief' after not having played under van Aalst yet. Best had been injured up until September, and even after that, had not made one appearance in the first team. Wigan were quick to swoop in with a £2,600,00 bid for the striker that was immediately accepted. Best signed within a day, and now he will apply his trade at the DW Stadium.



    The Toon spent £4,700,000 on their new player. A young English center back from West Ham. James Tomkins made the move north for Newcastle on the last day of the transfer window, and as a result of this, Sol Campbell has been transfer listed. Tomkins will look to form partnerships with current center backs Steven Taylor, Fabricio Coloccini, Mike Williamson and Matthias Jorgensen. Jorgensen and Tomkins look to be a partnership for the future, both of them current U21 internationals for their countries.



    Toon Transfer List

    Sol Campbell
    Ryan Taylor
    Alan Smith
    Tamas Kadar (Loan)
    Shefki Kuqi

    January brings little joy for Newcastle

    On a current winless streak of five games and Newcastle do not look like breaking that streak. Nick van Aalst will be feeling the pressure, and the Newcastle fans are starting to get restless, maybe van Aalst can not keep the Toon up?

    ---

    Newcastle 0-3 Stoke
    Premier League
    The Brittania Stadium


    A trip away to in-form Stoke was up next, and it did not look too kind for the Toon. A heavy 3-0 loss at the hands of the Potters sent Newcastle down the table, and now they look to be fighting an impossible relegation battle if they do not improve soon.

    ---

    Newcastle 0-0 West Ham
    Premier League
    St. James' Park


    Some very good defence from Newcastle saved their strikers blushes as a disappointing 0-0 draw was played out at home. Newcastle made plenty of chances, but their strikers could just not put the ball into the back of the net after some formidable goalkeeping from Robert Green.

    ---

    Newcastle 0-2 QPR
    FA Cup 3rd Round
    Loftus Road


    A long trip down south proved worthless for Newcastle as they were knocked out of the FA Cup in the early stages by a surprising QPR side. Newcastle were carved open as they looked relaxed and in a very 'non-caring' mood. The defence looked very weak, and van Aalst was seen furious on the sideline, yelling at his defenders as they just gave up. Newcastle's winless streak extended to 8 games and they look like going down now.

    ---

    Newcastle 3-0 Aston Villa
    Premier League
    Villa Park


    Three second half goals gave Newcastle the three points in Birmingham through goals from Vuckic, Jorgensen and Jo with only his second goal of the campaign. Vuckic got the scoring underway with a simple tap in after some brilliant work from Jonas, before Jorgensen sealed the game with five minutes left with a top header from a Nolan corner. Jo scored an absolute screamer with only seconds left and the Newcastle faithful left for home in a joyous mood.


    Young starlet Vuckic

    ---

    Newcastle 0-2 Manchester United
    Premier League
    St. James' Park


    Newcastle showed that they have improved since their first 5-0 loss at the start of the season, and in this game, they even looked like scoring a few times! Two first half goals from Rooney and Fletcher sealed off the game before Newcastle came firing back in the second half, but unable to finish. A slightly impressive game to end the month for the Toon.

    ---

    Still sitting in 15th position, and as we have said before, we will say it again, Newcastle have to improve to stay up this year.
