Is Gini Wijnaldum less effective away from home?

One of the main criticisms of Gini Wijnaldum during his time at Newcastle United was that he failed to contribute away from home, with all of his 11 league goals coming at St James' Park. This was brushed aside as being caused by the team's bad form on the road, but the Dutch international is having similar problems at Liverpool. There have been a number of fans commenting on his poor performances away and how he looks like a different …

Would Moussa Sissoko be a good signing for Everton?

The future of Moussa Sissoko has been one of the most talked about subjects this transfer window. He is still with Newcastle United, but it remains extremely unlikely that he will stay. In the media, he has constantly talked about his desire to leave and move to a Premier League club. On Saturday, he was in the stands at St James' Park and received a lot of abuse from the Newcastle fans. The situation is poisonous and although Newcastle are …
Do Crystal Palace really need Andros Townsend?

Do Crystal Palace really need Andros Townsend?

Andros Townsend had a great second half of the season after moving to Newcastle and he made the preliminary England squad as a result. He didn't manage to prevent Newcastle from getting relegated, but that could turn out to be a huge positive for Crystal Palace, who are believed to the frontrunners for his signature. There was a belief that he might stay at Newcastle, but the Palace move is looking too good to turn down. It will allow him …

Ayoze Perez - Set for an instant return to the Premier League?

Newcastle United were relegated last season to the surprise of many, as they did have a lot of talent in the squad. Moussa Sissoko, Gini Wijnaldum and Daryl Janmaat will all expect transfers to one of the top leagues in Europe, while there are a few others that might catch the eye of Premier League clubs. Ayoze Perez had a solid two seasons at Newcastle, transitioning well from the Spanish second tier, and will have plenty of admirers in the …
Why Aleksandar Mitrovic is Worth Buying and Who Should Look at Buying Him

Why Aleksandar Mitrovic is Worth Buying and Who Should Look at Buying Him

Aleksander Mitrovic had an eventful first season in England.  In his first start at St James' Park, he was sent off.  In his last Premier League game at St James' Park for at least a year, he was sent off.  In between those two red cards, he showed some real promise. Mitrovic was Newcastle's second top scorer by the end of the season, despite making only 22 starts.  He was key in their late bid to stay up, and is …

Survival Hope for the North East

Survival Hope for the North East

I can personally testify to the passion the North East of England has for football and whilst in recent decades its three main clubs do not have the trophies to match the depth of meaning football holds in the region, it can still point to a number of legendary names that emanate from the area. Bobby Robson, Brian Clough, Bobby Charlton, Jack Charlton, Paul Gascoigne, Peter Beardsley and Alan Shearer are all names synonymous with success, and all hail from …

The Relegation Battle: Five Weeks Left | Infographics

With only weeks of football left, for the bottom five clubs in the Premier League it has all come down to this. Some have their hopes of survival hanging by a thread - and some slimmer than that - whilst others are looking up the table rather than down.
