Newcastle United | A creativity comparison with Premier League rivals

Newcastle United | A creativity comparison with Premier League rivals

I think we can all admit that Newcastle haven’t exactly set the league alight this season! Following on from the successes of last season and attempting to show further progress was always going to be a tough ask. But, few would have predicted that the Magpies would have given us such lacklustre and unimaginative displays in their first 12 games in the Barclay's Premier League – none more so than the last two defeats at home (the last time that happened was …

Everton v Newcastle: Jelavic v Cisse | Opta Stats

Everton welcome Newcastle on the final day. The home side are playing for prize money whilst the visitors have hopes of a Champions League place. The two sides met earlier in the season with Newcastle emerging victorious in a drab encounter. With a draw and a win on their last two visits, Newcastle last lost at Goodison since 11th May 2008. However, last season's win was Newcastle's only one in eight trips to Everton. An Everton win will see Moyes' men …

Liverpool - Opta Stats | Where Did It All Go Wrong

Next up is Aston Villa, however, this week I would like to concentrate more on Liverpool and how our statistics and tactics have faired over the past few weeks. Clearly something has gone terribly wrong at Liverpool. Since the turn of the year, to put it bluntly, our form has been dire. It reads: LDLWDLLLWLLL – in 12 games that’s 2 wins, 2 draws, and 8 losses. Since the start of the year we are only winning 16.7% of our …
Are our best imports getting tired? Silva, Suarez, Ba, Aguero & Mata compared

Are our best imports getting tired? Silva, Suarez, Ba, Aguero & Mata compared

“I think the rigours of the Premier League are starting to catch up with him. He’s looking pretty tired to me!” Those were the arguable words of Mr Alan Shearer on the BBC's Match Of the Day show about Manchester City’s David Silva and they got me thinking… When I think of some of the top players that were brought to the Premier League this season, I struggle to come across one in my mind that has been impressively consistent all campaign. …
Does Demba Now Doubt His Dominance?

Does Demba Now Doubt His Dominance?

There are no two ways about it; Newcastle United have one of the most potent strike forces they have had in a long time. The firepower that Ba, Cisse and Ben Arfa possess has torn through teams recently; none more so than Liverpool at the weekend, and what better time to hit form than the final quarter or so of the season. Demba Ba has been a sensation for Newcastle United, signing for nothing (fee wise) in the summer from …
