Michael Owen Video

November 16th, 2006

WIth news that Michael Owen will be "back to the top" according to his knee tickler surgeon Dr Richard Steadman, it may be worth reminding ourselves what an ‘on top’ Owen looks like.

No wonder Newcastle are struggling this season. PC Glenn Roeder has been too busy locking up Gazza to worry about tactics, team selection and inspirational team talks. He might be dull in the world of football, but he is probably one of the most charismatic coppers ever!   For more Glenn Roeder fun-poking, check out […]

Lord Stevens is being urged to name innocent clubs today that are not involved in his bungs investigation. Several club chairmen will put their case at a meeting today, arguing that their clubs have been tainted by accusations after Lord Stevens announced that there were a total of eight clubs and 39 deals under investigation. […]

For years, the League Cup has seen various sponsors. It was once the Milk Cup. It was once the Rumbleows Cup. Largely however, it’s referred to as the ‘Micky Mouse Cup’. Usually, Premiership sides put out weakened teams to ensure an injury free squad for ‘more important’ matches like league games, or in some cases, European fixtures. Well, last night, the nation’s love affair…

Injury-plagued Newcastle midfielder Kieron Dyer has begged to play in the Carling Cup tie with Watford tonight in a pair of goggles. The 27-year-old is out of action with an eye injury after a long layoff with hamstring trouble. Dyer asked to play in a pair of Edgar Davids-style goggles, but medical staff have told […]

Glenn ‘Boo Hoo Hoo’ Roeder is whining again. He’s hit out at a fixture list which has left his Magpies facing three matches in six days. Newcastle are set to meet Sheffield United on Saturday, two days after facing Palermo in the Uefa Cup, then travel to Watford on Tuesday for a Carling Cup tie. […]

With Alan Pardew having alleviated some of the pressure on him with victory over Blackburn, the attention of the tabloids has now turned to Newcastle‘s Glenn Roeder. The in vogue insult to any manager’s credentials is, of course, to have Sven Goran Eriksson linked with you job. The Sun reports that Sven has ‘targeted’ Newcastle […]

Newcastle‘s comeback kid Kieron Dyer is injured again after maked a 30 minute comeback against Portsmouth in the Carling Cup on Wednesday night. Dyer’s notorious groins and hamstrings are still intact, but the midfielder is now facing at least two weeks on the sidelines after picking up an injury to his left eye. Rumours that […]

BREAKING NEWS Ipswich Town is interested in signing Titus Bramble. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play […]

I went to see The Departed last night (good film to catch if you are heading to the cinema any time soon). Leonardo di Caprio’s character really reminded me of someone… [Rob Parker]

Word on the street is that Newcastle captain Scott Parker will line up for England against Croatia as part of a five-man midfield as England opt to play it safe in Zagreb. Parker will reportedly play in front of a back three of Rio Ferdinand, Ledley King and skipper John Terry. Gary Neville and Ashley […]

Struggling Greek outfit Panathinaikos are trying to tempt Graeme Souness to become their new manager. The former Newcastle boss has already tried his hand abroad with Galatasaray in Turkey and Benfica in Portugal – where his main achievements included surrounding himself with mediocre British players. Souness has been out of work since being sacked by […]

Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given has told how he passed out in the showers at Upton Park after sustaining a bowel injury in a collision with Marlon Harewood. Given, aged 30, said: "I was stretchered off and thought it was easing. I had a shower, got hit by a pain and then passed out for nine […]

The draw for the group stages of this season’s Uefa Cup has just been made, and the remaining British clubs all face tricky assignments. Newcastle Utd have been drawn in the toughest group, Group H, along with Palermo (who demolished West Ham), Celta Vigo (solid Spanish team), Fenerbahce (always a tough place to visit) and […]

Horror Hair: Pavel Srnicek

September 28th, 2006

Newcastle United are set to revive a Premiership Horror Hair classic by re-signing former player Pavel Srnicek. The Czech goalkeeper is training with the Magpies with a view to signing a three-month deal as cover for Steve Harper while Shay Given is injured. Srnicek left the club in 1998 after Given’s arrival. He had been […]

Newcastle defender Celestine Babayaro is facing a three-match ban after the FA charged him with violent conduct for his petulant slap at Liverpool‘s Dirk Kuyt. For future reference Celestine, if you want to do something wrong you might as well do it right. This is how to do handbags properly. Learn from the masters.

It’s not easy playing behind a pub-standard defence. Shay is a rock, Shay is an island.

Last night’s Liverpool v Newcastle game will be remembered for Xabi Alonso’s wonder strike, but I don’t think the match itself will live as long in the memory as when the two clubs met in April 1996 for the first of their 4-3 thrillers. Don’t forget to check out Kevin Keegan who decided to attend […]

Wowza, what a goal – it was made easier thanks to Steve Harper slipping up in the Newcastle goal, but still, what vision from the overrated (cough) Alonso. And it’s not the first time the Spaniard has scored from inside his own half. Enjoy…

A small group of West Ham fan screamed abuse at former manager Glenn Roeder, when Newcastle played the Hammers at Upton Park on Sunday. They called him ‘Tumour Boy’ and asked ‘why didn’t you die three years ago?’ Depressing stuff. What with last night’s Panorama, the Cashley Cole/Gallas saga, the Tevez/Mascherano deal and constant reports […]

The rumours earlier this week were that Alan Shearer was ready to give up his burgeoning media career and move into football management. That was before we knew about his big break though! It seems Super Al landed a part as an extra in Coronation Street earlier this week (as spotted by the excellent Corrie […]
