Newcastle United Vs Liverpool Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

Reunions in Premier League are commonplace. But some reunions are a bit more special than others. This Sunday, we will witness one of these special reunions as Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle host his old club Liverpool. Of the Reds traveling to St. James’ Park, hardly one or two (Flanagan?) played under Rafa at the Merseyside club, but Rafa’s soft corner for Liverpool is well known. His unbeaten record against Liverpool must be an additional reason for him to like them. Given …

January Transfer Window: Hey Big Spender

January Transfer Window: Hey Big Spender

For those of an age similar to mine, I promise the title is not a Jimmy Nail and Tyneside related pun and if you have no idea what I’m talking about, Jimmy Nail played a Tyneside detective called Spender in a 90’s cop series of the same name. Anyway, enough of the digression and on to the subject at hand: the January transfer window (sound the trumpets). January is the extrovert sibling of the summer transfer window, the odd one …
Could Shelvey Unlock Newcastle's Potential?

Could Shelvey Unlock Newcastle's Potential?

Whisper it quietly, but Newcastle looked like a really good side against West Ham on Saturday. Eyebrows were raised when they opted to pay £12m for Jonjo Shelvey, and as a Newcastle fan, I was uncertain about the transfer, but after seeing his influence on Saturday, it is easy to see why the club wanted him. Newcastle have been lacking a quality playmaker since Yohan Cabaye left the club and their central midfield was certainly their weakness in the opening …

Player Performance Analysis: Andre Ayew v Manchester United

Player Performance Analysis: Andre Ayew v Manchester United

One of the themes of this weekend was away teams winning. That theme did not hold true at the Liberty Stadium though as Swansea came out 2-1 victors over Manchester United.  Swansea continued their recent dominance over United with their third win in a row over the Red Devils.  After already getting a draw away to Chelsea, the Swans have built on their noteworthy start with this win and find themselves fourth going into the international break. Considering some of …

Swansea City vs Stoke City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Stoke travel to the Liberty Stadium this weekend for what will widely be regarded as a 'dead rubber'. Swansea currently sit in eighth position, seven points off Europa League qualification, yet Gary Monk has had a hugely impressive first full campaign in charge, and will be looking for a strong finish to rubber stamp a successful season.

Newcastle United vs Swansea City | Team News, Stats and Key Men

This match is going to bear little significance on the top and the bottom of the Premier League table, but it should be an entertaining fixture. Although Newcastle are in freefall, it would take an extraordinary sequence of events for them to be dragged into the bottom three, while Swansea are secure in mid table. This is a fixture that has held many happy memories for Swansea since gaining promotion to the Premier League and they will be keen to …
