  1. I love seeing the players in the tunnel before the match. Newcastle players seem to be up for it today.

    1. Two fans who died in a plane crash on their way to see Newcastle play in a friendly this summer.

      More info is here.

    1. Fulham fans said it was the most noise they had heard from the away end in years.


  2. It's amazing what a new season does to wipe the slate clean. It was only at the end of last season that Newcastle fans walked out of the ground in the middle of the game as a protest against the owner. Now it's a full St James' Park to cheer on the team for a new season.

  3. Decent first half, great goal. Good to see Toure, Silva and Dzeko are picking up where they left off.

  4. Anyone else have issues with the NBC Sports Live Extra online site this weekend? It's been locking up for me now and again. It's happened a few times this weekend for me.

  5. Not being a fan of the spray why is it necessary to mark the ball? Is the ball going to move closer to goal by itself. Please enlighten me.

  6. All very predictable so far. City have had one moment of quality and made it count. Toon all huff and puff with no end product. If colback is your dead ball specialist you have problems.

  7. Last free kick no spray. I know I am a simple man but what gives. I am confused when spray is necessary and when it is not. Next free kick it is used.
