    Default Is now the TYNE to take the TOON to the TOP.

    First up i started this save with no intention of writing about but now we are at the end of season one i feel the need too.



    Newcastle United Football Club

    2011/2012

    Premier League

    Following as busy summer at St James' Park with the removal of Alan Pardew to be re-placed by an unknown Kris Scott the Toon Army at, not for the first time, up in arms at Chairman Mike Ashley and the fellow board members



    The new manager came in and made it clear from day one that no more players will be coming in during July and August and many predicted that again the club may suffer without investment.

    A new strike duo of Ba and Cisse are untried at Premier League level with Ba having just a 4 month stay with recently relegated West Ham. Before Pardew was ousted he had splashed £5m+ on Davide Santon, £4.3m on Yohan Cabaye and was tricked by Sir Alex Ferguson into coughing up for Gabriel Obertan.



    Pre- Season



    You cant read much into pre season but plenty of goals and unbeaten mean we can be confident going into the new season.

    Premier League


    Opening Day of Season

    It already feels like win or bust. Game One at home to Sunderland.

    The fans are well up for the local derby



    A fantastic performance from the whole team result in a 3-0 win with goals from Cisse, Taylor and Colocini.



    Off and running with three points



    End of October and we have done well in general. Poor defeat to Stoke in the League Cup but a good return of 19 points from 30 in the league push us upto 4th in the League.

    Newcastle United Football Club

    Premier League

    End of January



    From our good start i have been waiting for the bubble to burst but so far so good. An amazing run of results has seen just one draw and one defeat in our last 15 games. Demba ba has settled really well and scoring goals for fun while our backbone of Krul, Santon, Simpson, Taylor and Colocini are keeping us tight at the back.

    January has seen two new players join the club. Both midfielders one has joined on loan while the other has signed a 3 1/2 year deal.

    Antonio VALENCIA

    The Manchester United winger has joined on loan until the summer. We will be paying half of his £60k pw wages.

    Andy KING

    The Leicester City midfielder has come in for a fee of £2m. He fits well as his two best positions are DMC or AMC and we play the diamond 4-4-2 formation so he fits perfectly.

    Premier League

    One Game to Go



    Some good reults in the last few months peppered with more defeats than i would have liked. Sadly an injury to Demba Ba has hit us hard but a return of 21 goals in 30 games has been fantastic.



    Well the final game of the season sees THREE teams battling for two Champions League places.

    Final Day Fixtures:

    Newcastle United vs Manchester United (2nd)
    QPR (18th) vs Liverpool
    Tottenham vs Wolves (14th)

    We certainly have the hardest of the final game but hopefully a low scoring defeat at worst and Spurs not winning by many would get us a Champions League place on GD. Best case would be beat United, who have already conceded the title to Manchester City, and finish in 3rd.


    A little quiz question:

    Guess the club??

    3rd, 4th or 5th



    Well we got a tight defeat, all we needed was help from QPR and Wolves. We got a hand from QPR but Spurs did exactly as i feared and won big. Even a 4-0 win for Spurs would have given us third.



    Ther we go, a great first season, Champion League place for next year!!



    Champions League Final

    Barcelona vs Chelsea


    If Chelsea win in the final, 4th placed Newcastle United will miss out as Chelsea failed to get a top 4 finish.

    To be fair to Hodgson West Brom were in the Top 8 from game ten onwards and were beaten in the FA Cup Final by Arsenal. They also finished 13 points clear of Chelsea (11th).

    I didnt think the stadium could be expanded either but hey, this is Newcastle, anything goes

    Thats why i started the thread. Was just a little spooky how many things mirrored this season. Has been an enjoyable season although i would have been gutted if Chelsea won the CL.

    The matches:



    Sadly we could only finish with the silver medal but it could have been much different. The group stage was easy enough but after just 17 minutes against Japan in the Qtr Final we found ourselves 2-0 down. As for the final we fought back from 2-0 down to level and quickly concede again. Scott Sinclair had a chance from the penalty spot to draw us level at 3-3 but like the best of English players he skied it high and wide.

    A nice little start against two decent sides. The Chelsea win was never in doubt. Two up quickly, Lampard then missed pen. Chelsea scored in the 90+3 min and we scored straight from kick off to get the third. The Liverpool match saw them strike in the last five minutes get a point after we had led twice.

    After a good draw away from from home was always confident of getting through the home leg.


    The Group:




    Certainly would have liked a better group but when you are fourth seeds things are tough. I think the group maes a mockery of the bookies rating us as low as 18/1 to win the trophy!

    Yes and no to be honest. Birmingham 17 shots to our 12 and only two of ours on target. But we did hit the woodwork 3 times. Throughout the game it was one of those days where we could have played all night and not scored. Birmingham had 5 clear cut chances so overall happy with the point.

    After an FA Cup Qtr final defeat to West brom last season was happy enough to gain a bit of revenge. Only one 'big' club left in the last 8, Arsenal, and sadly we have drew them away in the next round.

    Well after the beating served up by Milan we came back nicely against bottom club Standard. I certainly feel that Milan will top the group and we will need to win away at Porto for a chance of 2nd. Thrid is looking most likely if im honest.

Went into the game without goalkeeper Tim Krul and top scorer Park Chu-Young due to internationals. 14 goals in the four games is a great return and both Cisse and Ba are clicking into top gear after slow starts.


    A change in the backroom staff this month as my assistant John Carver has moved to Norwich as manager. My new assistant until July is a 65 year old Italian who has spent time at both AC Milan (22 years) and Chelsea (2 years), Bruno Demichelis

    A disappointing draw to Standard was followed by a win at Porto that meant somehow, with only 8 points and one game left we have Q for the knockout phase!



    Totally unexpected as i felt Milan and Porto would take the first two spaces and we would happily drop into the Euro Cup.

    I think you would call that perfect. A month where we could relax as the last CL game had nothing riding on it and the Lge Cup Qtr Final was at the end of the month. It was not all easy though as 90th winners were needed away to Villa and Swansea.


    League Cup:



    A massive thankyou has to go to Arsene Wenger for resting his big guns and playing reserve players. Noce easy win puts us into a semi final with Wigan whilw the other semi final sees Fulham play Aston Villa.

    Home win against a Championship club. Was a tough game in all but rested my regular stars. Championship side QPR up next..


    League Cup:



    A trip to Wembley against Aston Villa to come. A brilliant home leg win meant 6 players were rested for the second leg.


    On the transfer front January has seen Athletic attacker Iker Munian has joined on loan till January.

    Leaving the club was Leon Best and Xisco as well as two youngsters who had their contracts terminated.

    Leaving on loan were Dan Gosling, Craig Dawson and Shane Ferguson to Blackpool, West Ham and Doncaster

    FA Cup:



    Two nice wins puts us into the last eight against Southampton.


    Champions League:



    Double champions Barca have come and been beaten well at St James' Park but that away goal could be vital as we go to Spain for the return leg. Restricted the best side in the world to just one shot on target so confidence is a little high about our chances of getting through.


    We have now won 22 of our last 25 games, with defeats in PL to Man City and Chelsea away while losing the dead rubber to Wigan in the League Cup Semi Final Second Leg.

    March brings the League Cup Final and Champions League 2nd Leg as our main games while the FAC and three PL games.

    Table:



    Poor home defeat to Fulham but the game that mattered was at the end of the month. Defeat and the title challenge would be over but a great win for us keeps us close to United.


    FA Cup:



    High scoring game puts us into a semi final against Manchester City.

    League Cup:



    Not a bad way for the club to win its first League Cup trophy after one previous final appearence in 1976. 4 up at the break a comfortable second half brings the first of maybe 4 trophies this season.






    Champions League:



    Was as tough as expected but a late goal by sub Demba Ba puts Barca out and gives us a last eight place against Ajax.

    Not good in the away leg left us too much to do at home, more so when Ben Arfa was red carded. Been a good adventure in Europe so more of the same next season!

    Premier League

    Pre Season


    After a good season we are tried to keep the squad intact hence rejecting a £21m bid for Yohan Cabeye from AC Milan.

    The summer has been difficult for the most part thanks to Mike Ashley deciding to sell the club.



    With the new man in place the only tihng that had changed is the boards confidence in me, and not for the best!!


    Newcastle Signings:

    Daniel Agger - the Liverpool defender comes in for a decent price of £2.4m. Out of favour was on long at German side Wolfsburg last season

    Adam Johnson - Another decent signing that doesn't break the bank, £3.6m, Adam joins to help down both wings and performed well on loan at Chelsea.

    Andy Carroll - With my two main forwards i have two younger guys under them so i wanted one more to help out. Not my first, second or even ninth choice Andy has re-joined the club on a season long loan.

    Players Out:

    Dan Gosling has joined Southampton for £1.5m

    Shola Ameobi has left for Swansea for £725k

    Gabby Obertan and Mike Williamson have joined Birmingham for a combined fee of £4.9m

    Sylvain Marveaux has joined Wolves on loan for £625k

    James Tavernier has joined Milwall on loan for £55k

    Rob Elliott has joined Brighton for a fee of £85k on loan

    Andy King joins Gosling at Southampton on loan for £625k

    Two reserve players have joined Gateshead and Walsall on loan

    Three U-18 players have been released.


    Pre Season has been mostly decent



    Goals galore in three of the games with newbie Johnson scoring a couple.

    Tough start to the season but cracking start in Europe. Despite being pegged back, that is a brilliant result against Real Madrid.

    Luck to you Kris. I just can't ever make myself manage Newcastle, just for the sheer heartache of it. I get too angry when things don't work out. Is nice to see someone else doing well though. And I really like the format. KUTGW!

    Table:



    Real hit or miss run of results. One minute we are untouchable and winning by three or four, the next being given a good hiding. Leaking too many goals is the main problem. Maybe not spending enough in the summer has affected.


    League Cup:



    Our grip on the cup has gone following the most eventful of games. Ahead three times during the first 90 minutes we allowed Liverpool back in. It was our turn to fight back in ET before missing 3 of our 5 pens dumped us out.

    Champions League:





    Another good run of Champions League football is making up somewhat for our poor league performance. The next round brings OM back to St James' Park after knocking them out in the qualifiers last season.


    FA Cup:



    Simple win over a non league side puts us easily through. Reading are up next as our quest for silverware continues.


    January Transfers:

    Sadly two of our better players have not performed this season so far, Coloccini and Santon so i have splashed some of our Champions League cash on two young English players.

    Phil Jones: Signed from Manchester United for £13.25m i expect him to become a main stay in our first eleven

    Jack Robinson: Highly rated left back has joined from Liverpool for £8m. Hoping he can pressure Santon into some better performances.

    Anderson: Another player in from United for a fee of £5m. Expect him to challenge Sigurosson for a first team place and hopefully can get some crucial goals for us.


    No players have left the club so we are a little heavy on players and if a European place cannot be clinched for next year there will be an end of season clearout.

    A nice end to the season really. The 6th placed finished gets us Europe next season which was important. Sixth placed was the highest position we had been in since week 4.

    Never got going in this years competition and were deservedly knocked out.

    Premier League

    Pre Season


    Following last seasons poor finish compared to the previous two years it has been a busy summer. Players i have signed that have not performed have been moved on while a couple of big names are in the door.

    Newcastle Players Out:

    Yohan Cabaye - From around March time he made his feelings known that he wanted to move to a bigger club. They don't come much bigger than Inter Milan so an offer of £19.25m was deemed good enough and i wish him well

    Craig Dawson - After just 11 apps in two years was decided to cut our losses and sold to Everton for £2.1m, a loss of £1.3m for us

    Adam Johnson - A year after joining he leaves for Leciester for £4.3m, a profit of £700k after just one goal in 12 games

    Daniel Agger - Big things expected a year ago following a £2.4m move but injuries restricted him to just six starts so a bid of £2.3m from Wolves was seemed suitable.

    Anderson - Only joined in January but as i look to to trim the squad it was a choice from him or Ben Arfa. Once Arsenal bid £10m, double our outlay, the decision was made to sell him

    Andy King - My first signing for £2m has never really held down a first team slot and Southampton made his loan move permanent for £1.9m

    That is the main deals, 4 players were released from reserves and another 5 have left on loan.


    Transfers In

    Ashley Young
    - Listed by Man Utd the 29 year old comes in for £2.5m. Never a regular at Old Trafford but 8 goals in 28 Prem games in not a bad return

    Sami Khedira - Signed from Real Madrid as a direct replacement to Cabaye, costing just £5.5m

    Samuel Eto'o - Despite being 33 i could not resisit paying just under £9m for the striker. With 48 goals in 58 games for Anji he is still a worldie player and will help out free scoring Ba and Cisse while i hope he can tutor a younger guy coming through.

    Have also spent £750k on four youngster.


    Pre Season Results:



    Good pre season and we face Brondby in the Euro Cup Quali.

    Table:



    Euro Cup Table:



    I have admitted to poor signings given the amount of new players who have left already but the squad i have now is doing me proud. Top if the table, just, a second string ran Man Utd close in Lge Cup and cruising in the Euro Cup for now.

    Eto'o has had a good start with 7 goals in 10 starts while Ashley Young has performed admirally.

    Khedira has been different class, almost ever present and holding the team together from the base of the diamond.

    Santon and Coloccini both had woeful seasons by there standards last year but have turned that around so far, Coloccini having the second highest ave rating of any of my players.

    End of February

    Results:








    A little off the pace at the top of table but a good race hotting up for the champions league places. Six away defeats during this time really has not helped us but home form is good.

    FA Cup is still going with a replay needed against Wolves to hopefully put is in Qtr Final against West Brom.

    As for Euro Cup, eased through the group winning all six matches and have just put pay to AZ 4-3 on agg. Fiorentina up next.


    During January we had massive problems with Ba, Cisse and Eto'o all on African Nations Cup duty so we have have signed bad boy Mario Ballotelli on loan and James Milner for £4.7m.

    A good run soured with the two results against Manchester United and Chelsea not only end our title hopes but maybe put pay to Champions League football next year.

    One win from final four league games has cost us dear, no CL football next year. A season where 79 points in last three seasons would have got us 3rd, 4th and 3rd.

    Can't believe we finshed 15 points better off than last year, FA Cup runners up and Euro Cup winners but im still gutted.

    Maybe next year....

    Results:



    Table:



    Woeful opening game of season followed by a good win over City. Would have taken three points from six but not happy with amount of goals conceded.


    Super Cup:



    City qiuckly gained revenge for the league defeat. Would have been nice to pick up another trophy.


    This season we have been drawn in Group G with Rangers, Aris and Steaua


    Summer Transfers:

    Leaving the club this summer has been midfielder Cheick Tiote who has joined Lille for £3.4m. Just 5 PL apps last season is well behind Khedira for the DM slot.

    Also leaving is Haris Vuckic to Brimingham (£5m) and Lorenzo Crisetig to Espanyol (£3.8m)

    Tamas Kadar has joined Norwich at the end of his contract while Will Keane has been released also.


    Joining the club are two replacements for Tiote and Vuckic.

    For £8.75m Emre Can has joined from Bayern while 21 year old Mexican Carlos Fierro has joined from Chivas for £7.25m.

    Fierro has scored 77 goals in 128 games for his former club and am hopeful he can make the kind of impact that another Chivas export has made, Javier Hernandez.
