- Mon, 11 Nov 2019 08:30:04 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Newcastle United | The Guardian
Emery’s Arsenal have lost their direction and Spurs’ problems start at full-back but Burnley’s Dwight McNeil is on song
Riyad Mahrez impressed only in spells during his first season at Manchester City but, with Leroy Sané felled by a cruciate injury in August’s Community Shield victory, the onus was on the £60m man to step up. An imperious performance at West Ham on the opening day of the season suggested he would do exactly that, yet he has started only four league games since – two of those being defeats – and with his side desperate for goals in a critical game at Anfield he was not called on at all. Mahrez remains a magical player on his day but the suspicion remains that he is a player who reflects his team’s performance rather than dictates it. City broke the bank to sign Mahrez from Leicester. With their defence a shambles, it looks in hindsight like a woeful misjudgment. Alex HessContinue reading...

- Sat, 09 Nov 2019 17:27:27 +0000: Ciaran Clark caps resurgent Newcastle’s fightback against Bournemouth - Newcastle United | The Guardian
The first hard frost of winter resulted in north-easterners scraping ice off car windscreens and negotiating slippery pavements. By the time darkness fell the temperature remained stubbornly close to freezing but two more goals from Steve Bruce’s defenders had warmed Newcastle fans, lifting their team to 11th.
“I’m delighted with the spirit and attitude,” said a beaming Bruce, who seems to have weathered the toughest of inductions to Rafael Benítez’s old job. “We deserved to win.”Continue reading...

• Manager will look to ‘add that bit of quality’ in January
• Bruce praises Jonjo Shelvey’s response to spell on bench
Steve Bruce has identified Newcastle United’s midfield as a department in need of reinforcement in January and would not turn his nose up at the chance to take Granit Xhaka on loan from Arsenal.
“We have six centre-backs and three right-backs but are a bit short in midfield areas, so we’ll have a little look at that,” said Newcastle’s manager in response to a suggestion that Unai Emery could look to offload Xhaka in the new year. “You are always looking to add that bit of quality, so we’ll see if we can.”Continue reading...
- Fri, 08 Nov 2019 15:14:57 +0000: Newcastle United v Bournemouth: match preview - Newcastle United | The Guardian
It was a 3-1 home defeat by Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth in March 2016 that marked the end of Steve McClaren’s Newcastle tenure, prefacing his replacement by Rafael Benítez. Now the man in charge is Steve Bruce who, despite years at assorted clubs, has never faced Bournemouth as a manager. Whatever the result, Bruce is highly unlikely to be dismissed but will nonetheless be happy when the impending international break is over. “I shouldn’t say it but a lot of managers think ‘I have to get past the international breaks’,” he said. “In October and November some of us think we’ve got past that hurdle of getting the sack.” Louise Taylor

Newcastle United have been the focus of much speculation in recent weeks in regards of new additions to the squad with many household names being linked with the north east club. Manager Alan Pardew has been scouring the football world for players to add to his team who can bring as much to the table for Newcastle as last years signings Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse did last season as they were two of the most influential signings the club has made for several years.
The biggest story this summer for Newcastle is their desire to bring back Andy Carroll to St James Park as the former Newcastle striker has found it extremely hard to find his feet at Anfield and it is widely believed that new Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers sees no future for the huge striker in his plans to take Liverpool back to the top of the division. Liverpool however have stated so far that they have received no offers for Carroll but have also failed to state if they would entertain any for him as he cost the Merseysiders thirty five million pounds less than two seasons ago which they would fail to recoup if they in fact did decide to sell their misfiring striker.
One of the top targets for Pardew this season looks to be FC Twente defender Douglas as the club are believed to have just tabled a bid of around four million pounds for the services of the Brazilian player. Douglas has recently stated that he wishes to search for pastures new after completing a couple of seasons for the Belgian side and it looks highly likely that he will be plying his trade in the premier league next season for Newcastle as long as they can complete the deal successfully.
Another player who Newcastle are keen on signing from Fc Twente is the Dutch player Luuk De Jong although it looks highly unlikely that Pardew will be able to bring the player to St James Park as he is seemingly on his way to German side Borussia Monchengladbach. A deal is yet to be signed by the Dutch international yet the hope of bringing him to the north east for the start of next season is dwindling day by day but there is still hope for Pardew until the player signs on the dotted line.
French international Mathieu Debuchy looks all set to complete a move to Newcastle after the player who is currently at Lille has stated that it is his priority to play in the premier league next season and his preferred destination right now is Newcastle. This will be like music to Newcastle fans ears as the defender is extremely well thought of around Europe and can offer a great boost of experience and skill to the Magpies defence.
Want away Blackburn player Junior Hoilett is another player who is on Pardews radar is the striker is all set to leave the championship side with it looking more than likely he will be heading off to Germany with Borussia Monchegladbach. Pardew though still holds hope he can persuade the striker to turn his attentions to Tyneside but this is looking more unlikely each day.
