Wednesday that a deal to buy Newcastle United by Amanda Staveley's PCP Capital
Partners company was imminent, subsequent updates have proved rather less

February's Premier League fixture alterations for live TV
will now appear next week, following "difficulties" selecting
which fixtures are to be shown.
A decision had been due on Tuesday, but for a third successive month the PL
missed their own deadline - once again delaying football supporters awaiting
the news before booking trains, leave etc aka real life.
This time it's claimed that the League Cup Final in late February is partly
to blame, with the finalists not yet known until the semi-finals this coming
On the basis that the semi-final dates were known at the start of the season
though, the PL's timetable for informing fans looks to have been nonsense
from the start - another example of them paying lip service.
A trio of NUFC fixtures are "at risk" this time round:
Crystal Palace (a) currently Sat 03.02.2018
Manchester United (h) currently Sat 10.02.2018

Seagulls, now Eagles
Newcastle U18s were
rewarded for their stunning 5-0 victory at Brighton with an away tie against Crystal Palace in
the Fourth Round
of the FA Youth Cup.
While the Magpies were running riot at the Amex, the Eagles were drawing 2-2
at Mansfield Town before progressing thanks to a 6-5 penalty shootout win.
Fourth Round ties are to be played by January 20th.

Newcastle's FA Cup Third Round tie

United were handed their first Third Round tie in four seasons and face the current League Two leaders, who won 5-0
at Gateshead in the Second Round.
This is the fourth time that the two clubs have been drawn together in this
competition, with Newcastle the home side on every occasion.
United's most recent meeting with the Hatters came in the Fourth Round of the
same competition in January 1994 - Peter Beardsley's equaliser at SJP earning
a replay at Kenilworth Road that Newcastle lost 0-2.
Previous to that, there was a 2-1 Fourth Round win for United during January
1981 when goals from Ray Clarke and Mick Martin settled it.
The first FA Cup meeting went the way of Town in February 1973, the visitors leaving
Tyneside with a 2-0 Fourth Round scalp.
There'll be one very interested spectator at SJP on January 6th - former Magpie Robert Lee's two sons Elliott and Oliver
play for Luton and both
netted against Gateshead.

Friday's DevonLive makes the bold prediction of an Arsenal win

JohnG for the spot.
What's this all about then?
for a rambling explanation of sorts....
This Day in History
Born Or Died:
1880 William Agnew born, New Cumnock, Scotland. (1902-04)
Defender who featured also for our wearside and teesside rivals, sandwiched
by a return to his native Kilmarnock during which he was capped three times at
Agnew later played for Falkirk and East Stirlingshire and had a stint on the
staff at Third Lanark. He died in 1936.
1907 George Nevin born, Lintz Colliery, Durham.
Left back who signed for Newcastle United in 1925 but failed to break into
the first team and returned to local football.
A second stint at Gallowgate from 1928 proved to be more successful and he
managed half a dozen outings before moving on to Sheffield Wednesday in 1930.
Again though Nevin struggled to hold down a place and he joined Manchester
United, only to later return to Hillsborough.
Finally getting a run of games for Burnley, George joined Lincoln City in 1937
and was on the books of Rochdale when league football was suspended early in
the 1939/40 season due to the onset of WW2.
After retiring from football, Nevin settled in the Sheffield area, passing away
1929 Ivor Allchurch MBE born, Swansea.
record signing when joining for £28,000 from Swansea Town in October
Ivor was a crowd favourite in the four seasons he played at SJP - even if
United suffered the agony of relegation in 1961.
Appearing in the 1958 World Cup Finals for Wales prior to his arrival at
Gallowgate, his 68 caps was a record haul
at the time and led to his nickname of "The Golden Boy of Welsh
United succeeded where Wolves had failed with a £28,000 bid and Ivor's
debut came in a 3-1 home victory over Leicester City in October 1958, scoring
Although well regarded by Newcastle fans, Allchurch played for the club during
a low point in their history and relegation came at the end of the 1960/61
Leaving United for
Cardiff City in August 1962, Ivor was awarded the MBE four years later, by which
time he'd returned to play for his hometown club once again.
Moving on to Worcester City in 1968, Ivor also played for Bishoptown, Haverford West and Pontardawe
Athletic and was still turning out on his
Ivor passed away in 1997 and a statue in his honour was unveiled outside Swansea City's Liberty Stadium in
2005 - with a contribution to the costs of construction forthcoming from
1944 John Markie born, Bo'ness, Scotland.
Right half who signed for Newcastle at the age of 15, having appeared for
John was part of United's 1962 FA Youth Cup winning squad but made
only two first team starts, both during the 1963-64 season and both
ending in defeats.
Following the arrival of Stan Anderson, Markie left on a free transfer, signing
for Falkirk, serving the Bairns for over a decade and setting
their appearance record.
A switch to Clyde in 1976 was followed by a brief spell at Stenhousemuir that
was curtailed by a leg injury sustained while playing against Queens Park at
Following that Markie joined the Dundee coaching staff and coached various junior football sides in Tayside, later
scouting for Arbroath.
Away from football, John worked in the petro -chemicals industry at Grangemouth.
1962 Andy Thomas born,
Eynesham, Oxfordshire. (1986-88)
Midfielder signed from Oxford United after impressed in games against
us - notably a League Cup tie at The Manor Ground in October 1985 when
he netted twice.
Loaned out to both
Fulham and Derby County during his time at Oxford, Andy debuted for
the Magpies in a 1-0 home victory over Wimbledon in October 1986.
He's remembered for a brief golden spell in front of goal soon after moving to
SJP, scoring twice in successive games against
Chelsea, West Ham United and Everton - the latter in a Full Members
However his second season at SJP was dogged by injury and Thomas played only
four times in the league - what proved to be his final outing coming away at
Portsmouth in May 1988.
Thomas moved on to Bradford City ahead of the 1988/89 season and later played
for Plymouth Argyle.
A switch to non-league Thame United and then Oxford City then saw him take over
as manager of the latter, guided them to the 1995 FA Vase final. He later took
charge of Brackley Town - another side whose home ground is named St.James
1977 Sylvain Distin born, Bagnolet,
Arriving on on Tyneside on loan from Paris St. Germain with a fine reputation and a Champions League
pedigree, centre half Distin debuted in the 89th minute of an eventful 4-3 home victory over Manchester United
during September 2001 - although he never actually touched the ball.
34 more appearances followed,
during which the left-footer displayed good aerial skill and a fair
turn of pace for a big man.
However, Distin appeared to possess all the
attributes a professional footballer needed, apart from any shred of loyalty
or devotion to the cause.
Rejecting a move to Bolton Wanderers before following
Laurent Robert from Paris to Tyneside, it was thought Newcastle had first choice on
a permanent move, only for the player to stall on signing - allegedly due to
the size of his wage packet.
That prompted press speculation that he
was being hawked to the highest bidder and as the season drew to a close,
claims were made that among others, Bolton (again) and Blackburn Rover were in
Ultimately though, Distin joined Kevin Keegan's newly-promoted Manchester City side, claiming that the fans only knew
one side of the story and Newcastle were at fault for failing to concluding
negotiations to his satisfaction.
That deal was to have
ramifications for United, with Sir Bobby Robson pushing through the signing of Titus Bramble from Ipswich Town
to boost his defence.
Distin's home debut the following season came against Newcastle - although he didn't have much defending to do on a day when his former side were
The ex-Magpie endured 90 minutes of sustained abuse from the travelling
contingent at Maine Road that day - one greedy basket we think they
Distin exited Manchester City in similarly bad grace after running his
deal down in order to join Portsmouth in May 2007.
Winning the FA Cup
with Pompey in his first season, he joined Everton in a £5m deal ahead of the
2009/10 campaign and spent six years at Goodison Park.
Making a free transfer move to Premier League newcomers Bournemouth during July
2015, what proved to be his 17th and last game for the Cherries came in the
final minutes a 3-1 victory over Newcastle at Gallowgate the following March.
The conclusion of that season then saw Sylvain released.
1997 Louis Johnson born, Middlesbrough (2014-16)
Striker who was handed his U18 debut for United during
a 2-1 home win over Bolton during February 2014,
agreeing a youth scholarship that summer.
A regular for the juniors during the following season, Louis was named on
the bench for a first team friendly at York City in July 2015 - but wasn't
Appearing for the U18s that season but failing to feature for the U21s, Johnson
was released by United in 2016.
He later appeared at Northern League side Thornaby.

A third successive draw put Joe Harvey's men up to sixth spot in the table,
but also extended their winless run away from Tyneside to fifteen league games.

who spent most of the weekend getting to and from the
game, but Gavin Peacock's last minute goal provided a
measure of warped justice.

1992 Cesena (Italy)
A meaningless match for already eliminated United,
during which they experimented with a 3-4-3 formation,
Alan Neilson, Steve Howey and Matty Appleby forming the rearguard.
The Italians wore gloves and should have lost when they
conceded a last minute penalty. However, Gavin Peacock contrived
to miss it, and thus fail to complete his hat trick.

Ahead thanks to a grand volley from Gary Speed, Kieron
produced a classic second as he ran at the Bantams back
line before a tidy finish.
The visitors got one back late on, but United deservedly held out for
the win - thanks in part to some of Alan Shearer's trademark
corner flag excursions.

After a 2-2 draw at SJP, the replay was staged at the Crystal Palace Athletics Stadium,
not Selhurst Park.
And it was the young Eagles who showed United a clean pair
of heels, running out 4-1 winners - a Michael Chopra
penalty our reply.

UEFA Cup Group Game 4
We lost our 100% record in
the fourth and final UEFA Cup group stage game, but gathered the point
required to confirm us as group winners.
However, it was a night that won't
live long in the memory of those present, with perhaps only first-team
debutant Lewis Guy or the goalscorer
Craig Bellamy remembering it with any fondness.
2006 Watford (h)
Glenn Roeder celebrated victory over the side that he'd previously
managed and played for, but his Magpies made heavy weather
of seeing off the bottom-placed side.
After a tepid first 45, Obafemi Martins got on the end of a James Milner
cross to powerfully head his side ahead.
However, the Hornets levelled when
Algerian international winger Hameur Bouazza netted from close range following a corner.
Fit-again duo Damien Duff and
Scott Parker came off the bench and the
