After our recent run of home form, we were due a performance like this. No lack of effort though, just one of those days where it didn’t happen, and let’s face it, we all have them…

Booing though? A minority I suppose, but seriously? And sadly, it could be the last sound that Kenedy heard as a Newcastle United player at St. James’ Park…

Another win, three more points, the points that took us beyond the 40 point barrier, most likely securing our top flight place for another season…

We gave Arsenal a goal start but fought back, deservedly winning through goals from Ayoze Perez and Matt Ritchie…

Pre-Match: Kick Off Approaching…

It’s really beginning to feel as if we could be on the brink of something, but with Mike Ashley in charge, you just have to put those feelings to one side, and hope…
