Position by Position Squad Preview


We're taking the remaining week and a half of the summer to preview the Newcastle United squad who will take on the 2013-14 Premier League season. We start with the goalkeepers.

Negotiations for Gomis to wrap up soon?

It's been a long, arduous process, but reports are surfacing now that Newcastle, Lyon and Bafétimbi Gomis have all agreed fees and personal terms... and it is now down to pleasing Gomis' agents.

Newcastle Defeat St. Mirren 2-0: The Storify


Newcastle United defeated St. Mirren 2-0 in a preseason friendly in Scotland. The match was turned by a couple of players making debuts: Papiss Cissé (preseason debut) and Mathieu Debuchy (NUFC...

As the transfers turn


We're at that neat part of transfer negotiations where one club is saying that the other can't agree personal terms while the other is saying transfer fee is the sticking point. Cute.

Two Targets Enter, Two Targets Leave?


Self proclaimed Best Director of Football In Football Joe Kinnear promised swift action in the transfer market. Neither has there been action nor has it been swift.

From hero to villain... to hero.


When times were good (2011-12), they were very good. Then not so much... and now, Alan Scott Pardew, Esq. is back on the side of good... for now. Here's how it happened.

Coming Home Podcastle Episode 12.1 Is Here


Now that I've got myself settled across the country from where we last met, we've put together a podcast. It will be in your ears as soon as my internet allows it to be so.

LIVE THREAD: Newcastle v. Pacos de Ferreira


Preseason match #3 is happening. Let's talk it out.

Come play with us


Fantasy sports are fun, not at all time consuming and raise your perceived social status within the community of your peers. It's science.

CronyGate 2013 - Harford Not Coming After All


Joe Kinnear has apparently failed to reunite with former player/assistant Mick Harford at Newcastle United. Let wild speculation begin (ehr.... continue)


Give us feedback on Coming Home Podcastle

Before we return to recording the podcast from an enforced hiatus (enforced by 3,700 miles and U-Box), let us know what you like, what you don't like and how we're doing. Please.

The NUFC Fans UTD meeting - Positive end result?


One of the most frequently asked questions in the run in to the much-publicized NUFC Fans United meeting on Monday was: "Why won't Mike Ashley talk to us?!" - the meeting may have answered that...

Shock Revelation: Newcastle Need Striker


Say what you will about the Kinnear appointment, but if it takes Joe's bluster to get in Ashley's ear finally that the club need another striker (and a world class one at that), then I welcome our...

Llambias out. What now?


You take the good, you take the bad you take them both and then you have the Derek Llambias reign at St. James' Park. His fingerprints have been on everything good and bad over the last 5 years and...

Coming Home Podcastle Episode 11


Joe Kinnear is Director of Football, it's raining in Texas and Robert, Callum and I talk about it all. When you can't really make heads or tails of something, PODCAST!

Coming Home Podcastle Episode 10!


Welcome back to the recesses of our minds - transfer rumors, comings, goings, stayings and the obligatory pop culture references fill this weeks episode - and I expound upon my passion for...



As a start of a series of pieces about players that may be slightly off Newcastle's summer radar (or at the very least a seemingly low priority) we have made an attempt to "make the case" for...

Coming Home Podcastle Episode 9


It's back and shorter than ever (well, save for the infamous "half-episode"). Coming Home Podcastle is here for you and we discuss some of the recent stories around Newcastle United - which are...

Stop me if you've heard this one


The 2013-14 Newcastle United season is starting off on the same foot as the 2012-13 season did. A couple of more boxes to tick and the 2013-14 season will be set up to be a (less fixture-congested)...

Newcastle Undefeated At Hong Kong Sevens


Not to be confused with the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens tournament, Newcastle won their first three matches in the Hong Kong International Soccer Sevens and will move on to see action on Sunday in...

Toon Skipper In San Lorenzo Rumors... Again

It was 100% that this story would resurface this summer after Newcastle United were able to hold on to their Argentine captain in the January window. While the club holds all the cards in this...

Coming Home Podcastle Episode 7 is here!

We spend this week decompressing a little bit more following the awful season that was. Discussions include reshaping the squad moving forward and identifying potential transfer targets - including...

Coming Home Podcastle Episode 6


Here it is - what Robert and I sound like (and exactly how well we can focus) when we're not worried about relegation!

Newcastle finally do the job, only just.


Needing 3 points, Newcastle United traveled to London (where they have struggled tremendously in recent times) to drag themselves out of the Relegation scrap. In these situations, it's rarely a HOW...

Pardew Admits Culpability - Takes a Run at Ashley


Unpopular man of the moment in Newcastle Alan Pardew has confessed to underachieving this Premier League season... but has looked to take owner Mike Ashley with him down the road of blame.

Super Mac Spitting Fire, As The Kids Would Say


Malcolm MacDonald has told Sky Sports Tyne and Wear exactly what is up when it comes to Newcastle United... and I, for one, agree with him utterly and completely.

In Defense of Gabriel Obertan
