Andy Carroll has had no shortage of criticism over the years – some of it deserved – but George Ramshaw refuses to hear a bad word about the Newcastle United striker.
A fortnight before football’s coronavirus-induced shutdown, Newcastle’s assistant kit man returned to work at the club’s training ground with a spring in his step. Thanks to a whip-round of Steve Bruce’s first-teamers, initiated by Carroll, Ramshaw had a new hip.Continue reading...

- Players have personal training schedules away from base
- Bruce says playing behind closed doors was not an option
Steve Bruce and his staff at Newcastle are implementing coronavirus contingency plans that have been on the club’s tactics board for a month. It is a blueprint that has left every player with a personal training programme to be undertaken in private and the training ground undergoing frequent fumigation procedures during an impending two-week shutdown.
“We’ve been talking about what would happen if everything was suspended for the past four weeks now,” said Newcastle’s manager as he endorsed the postponement of all Premier League fixtures until 4 April. “I don’t think there’s any alternative. My staff and I were sitting watching the TV yesterday and the news [games were then going ahead] came through from the prime minister, and we all thought: ‘OK.’Continue reading...

Phil Foden gets a reality check, Chelsea’s veterans show their worth and West Ham’s board have a decision to make
The rehabilitation of Luke Shaw has been a success of Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s reign. A player given harsh treatment by José Mourinho may never turn into the first-choice England left-back he looked set to be as a teenager at Southampton but his recent repurposing as a left-sided centre-back has revealed extra dimensions to his game. It is a highly specialised position, one only really suited to those games where Solskjær sets his team up to soak up pressure, but since Shaw was deployed there at Liverpool in January, 3-5-2 has been the default formation for United’s more testing fixtures. Shaw’s presence also gave Brandon Williams licence to overlap, though both were put through plenty of defensive work by Manchester City. At 24, Shaw has become a senior figure guiding young blood through matches, something inconceivable under Mourinho. John BrewinContinue reading...
- Sat, 07 Mar 2020 17:05:14 +0000: Newcastle’s Allan Saint-Maximin strikes late to sink 10-man Southampton - Newcastle United | The Guardian
This was a breathless contest but the lasting image belonged to the match-winner, Allan Saint-Maximin, whose backflip in front of the delirious travelling Newcastle support earned him further adulation.
Saint-Maximin struck just as it seemed Steve Bruce’s side would be left frustrated in their attempt to wrestle victory from 10-man Southampton, who had Moussa Djenepo sent off in the first half. Saint-Maximin expertly applied the finish after driving on to a superb first-time ball by the substitute Sean Longstaff to score Newcastle’s first league goal in 439 minutes. It was Longstaff’s first touch but a lasting contribution to earn a first win in six league matches and cap a good week’s work after reaching the FA Cup quarter-finals on Tuesday.Continue reading...

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.
