20 Greatest Kits In Newcastle United History

27th February 2015, 13:10:45

David Hewitson/EMPICS Sport A loving ode to the Black and White (and blue, and yellow, and green, and silver) Army.

There are a lot of words Newcastle United fans would use to describe the things they witness at St James' Park, but it's a safe bet that "beautiful" isn't amongst them. From Dalglish's tactics, to Boumsong's defending, via Gabriel Obertan's face, the Geordie faithful have had to endure some absolutely horrific sights during their time supporting their club.

Mike Egerton/EMPICS Sport Could Jonas be one of them?

10 Perfect Signings Carver Won't Make Today

2nd February 2015, 11:57:34

Lionel Cironneau/AP Remember when Newcastle used to sign people on transfer deadline day? Nope, nobody does.

Predicting what Newcastle will do in any transfer window is an entirely pointless endeavour. Despite the fact that the club patently need a new centre-back, as well as reinforcements up front, the board have flashed their usual vague smile and said they couldn't possibly make any signings in the short-term when they could make them in the long-term.

Newcastle United's Greatest Foreign XI

21st January 2015, 10:59:34

Twitter Adopted Geordies, one and all.

The Toon are perhaps as famous for their ‘honorary Geordies’ as they are for notoriously leaky defences and passionate fans. And what better way to celebrate the league of nations that have graced the hallowed St. James’ Park turf than with a greatest foreign XI list?

Why Newcastle Fans Should Be Anxious Over Alan Pardew's Replacement

30th December 2014, 09:58:10

Owen Humphreys/PA Wire Pardew is out but where does Ashley go next?

Although Newcastle fans may have got their dream present this Christmas with Alan Pardew's impending exit from St. James' Park, a troubling anxiety over what happens next has crept in. "Sack Pardew" may have been the cry for months but few would have been able to tell you who should be in charge instead. The focus was so aggressive on Pardew out that nobody even thought about what the follow-up would be if it actually happened.

Lynne Cameron/EMPICS Sport The next generation of English talent pushing for Euro 2016.

As often happens after England's biennial tournament humiliation, the British press and public call for an injection of young blood. This was perhaps louder than ever following this summer's World Cup in Brazil. The problem is, there isn't always a hotbed of talent to pick from, especially when the domestic league is full of so much money and foreign purchases.

5 Goals That Could Have Changed Newcastle United Forever

16th December 2014, 10:01:38

Michael Steele/EMPICS Sport There's nothing harder on football fans than a "what if...".

Highs and lows elicit any emotion you'd care to mention, but they're all matter of fact. They go into the record books, and in 100 years time they'll still be there, completely unchanged, for you happily or therapeutically reminisce over. But the near-misses, they come only with a thick fog of interpretation that means they'll be debated for as long as arguing in pubs is considered a valid use of one's time. All without an definitive answer ever being found.

10 Players You Didn't Know Were On Trial At Newcastle United

SCOTT HEPPELL/AP Pop stars, internationals and Newcastle's most prolific ever goalscorer.

When you hear the word "trial" in the same sentence as "Newcastle United" your mind can go one of two places. Either you're instantly transported back to the plot of the movie Goal! and the image of young Santiago Munez getting dumped on his backside in a muddy and ferocious kick-about at the training ground, or you roll your eyes and wonder what Nile Ranger's done this time.

5 Emergency Goalkeepers Newcastle Need To Consider

9th December 2014, 15:53:50

Chris Radburn/PA Archive Alan Pardew needs a big present delivered before Christmas.

Not for the first time in the club's history, Newcastle United have a problem. With their first team squad already being down to its bare bones, they've now also lost their only two senior goalkeepers to fairly serious looking injuries.

10 Newcastle Heroes Whose Careers Nosedived Since Leaving

4th December 2014, 15:18:54

SCOTT HEPPELL/AP Sometimes, the grass isn't always greener...

Players leave football clubs - that is just a fact of life. For some, they can't have gotten away from St. James' Park faster - having fallen afoul of managers, being forced to play out of position and generally enduring a miserable time at Newcastle United. Once away from the cauldron of chaos up north, they were allowed to thrive and force their way into the reckoning for international call-ups and Champions League football.
