- Sat, 23 Sep 2017 21:29:27 +0000: Tim Krul keen to prove point for Brighton after Newcastle exit - Newcastle United | The Guardian
The Dutch goalkeeper’s career has faltered since serious injury two years ago, but he is determined to recapture his best form on the south coast
Rafa Benítez’s ruthless streak is rarely evident these days but a notable manifestation occurred in the summer when Tim Krul and Jack Colback, two unwanted Newcastle United players, were banished to train with the juniors.
Colback remains in unhappy exile at the academy but Krul took the hint and eventually secured a deadline-day move to Brighton & Hove Albion. Reunited with Chris Hughton, his old manager at St James’ Park, the erstwhile Holland goalkeeper hopes to make a first Premier League start for his new club when Benítez’s team visit the south coast on Sunday afternoon.Continue reading...
- Sat, 23 Sep 2017 08:00:11 +0000: Brighton & Hove Albion v Newcastle United: match preview - Newcastle United | The Guardian
The two automatically-promoted sides play at the Amex Stadium with Newcastle, who have won three in a row, are five points ahead of a home side that lost from a leading position at Bournemouth last time out. Has their impressive form merely masked Rafael Benítez’s transfer window frustrations or is something significant gathering speed? Their former manager, Chris Hughton, will put that to the test and Brighton will need to beknow his side need to be as good as they were in their last home game, when Pascal Gross inspired them to a 3-1 win over West Brom.

One bad decision can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and lacerate a team’s confidence but lessons can be learned from the scars
Have you ever gone out on a Friday night full of excitement and expectation – relishing everything that’s ahead of you – only to find yourself full of guilt and remorse on Saturday morning? Well, what happened at Bournemouth last week was worse than a night out where I said the wrong thing.
The game at the Vitality Stadium was one we badly wanted to win and we were 1-0 up with 20 minutes to go. We were cruising. The team performance was good and the feeling on the pitch was that we were heading towards our first Premier League away win.Continue reading...
- Mon, 18 Sep 2017 07:46:41 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Newcastle United | The Guardian
Bournemouth get some return from £15m Ibe, Chelsea lack plan B without Diego Costa, Burnley are not long-ball side and Jamaal Lascelles has grown up fast
Manchester City and Manchester United have goal differences of +14 after five matches. That is more than Celtic in the Scottish Premier League, a division routinely mocked for being uncompetitive. If the Manchester clubs carry on winning by the margins they have enjoyed so far, then they will surpass the Premier League’s record goal difference (+71 racked up by Carlo Ancelotti’s Chelsea in 2009-10), the best ever mustered by Celtic (+80), the New Saints in Wales (+75) and the preposterous Ligue 1 record set by Paris Saint-Germain two years ago (+83). Of course that is a big ‘if’ because there is a small clutch of teams who could frustrate or even beat them. But United and, in particular, City are likely to ridicule many opponents this season. City beat United to the 2012 title on goal difference (+64 against +56); for José Mourinho there would surely be no sweeter way to prevail over Pep Guardiola this season.

- Sat, 16 Sep 2017 16:21:49 +0000: Jamaal Lascelles heads Newcastle United to win over Stoke City - Newcastle United | The Guardian
Punctuated by bouts of driving rain and permeated by a distinctly autumnal chill, it was hardly the ideal afternoon for a convalescent to be outdoors but nonetheless it seemed to do Rafael Benítez a power of good.
A fortnight after undergoing surgery to clear infection from the site of an old hernia repair, Newcastle United’s manager walked gingerly into the dugout but departed with a spring in his step.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.
