NUFC have now belatedly
announced ticket sales for the Crystal Palace home game to members with a
date of Saturday 6th April and a kick-off
time of 3pm.
Sky have also announced no rescheduling for that weekend and the Premier
League have released their revised April fixtures, so this date finally
appears now to be set in stone.
From the BBC, Tuesday:
Everton manager Marco Silva has been fined £12,000 by the Football Association
for confronting officials after his side's defeat at Newcastle.
Silva, 41, engaged angrily with referee Lee Mason and his assistants when
his side lost 3-2 - despite being 2-0 up - at St James' Park on 9 March.
The former Watford boss complained Ayoze Perez's winning goal was offside.
The Portuguese accepted an improper conduct at an Independent Regulatory
Commission hearing on Tuesday.
Our verdict? The Toffees turned over with three second half goals, the
last one being blatantly offside and it cost their manager 12 grand.

Update: NUFC statement, Monday:
We are aware that seven supporters were initially arrested for allegedly
encroaching on to the perimeter of the pitch during the closing stages of
Saturday’s match at the Vitality Stadium.
We are liaising with both the police and a
number of supporters as investigations continue and we are monitoring their
observations pending any criminal proceedings.
“If any individuals are found guilty of
committing criminal acts, we will review their individual case before
determining if any further club-related punishment is appropriate.
“We would like to take this opportunity
to thank the vast majority of Newcastle United fans for their support and
their exemplary behaviour while following the team both home and away.”
that pitch encroachment and attacks on footballers is a current hot topic,
it's no shock to see the behaviour of some Newcastle fans at Bournemouth
picked up by various news outlets.
As anyone who was present on Saturday will confirm however, there's a world of
difference between what went on at Dean Court and recent events at Easter
Road, St. Andrew's and the Emirates.
Newcastle fans spilling on to the touchline and the side of the pitch during a
goal celebration may mirror the antics of the Villa followers after Jack
Grealish's winning goal against Birmingham, but are totally unrelated to the
deliberate and planned assault on the same player earlier in the Second City
Similarly, there was nothing at Bournemouth akin to the incident when former Magpie James Tavernier was confronted and attacked by a fan during the
Hibernian versus Rangers game or the event at the Emirates where a single fan
shoved Chris Smalling.
What supporter/player interaction there was came during celebrations of Matt
Ritchie's equalising goal, when Newcastle players rushed towards the away
stand - where spectators were equally caught up in the moment and in some
cases, got carried away.
Attempts to link the disparate incidents are without foundation, but it's
entirely predictable given that both Sky and the Sun* saw fit to do so.
*That's the same disreputable tabloid that published wholly false stories
about non-existent trouble during Newcastle's European visits to both Bilbao
and Marseilles. Nothing changes.

Newcastle U18s 1 Manchester United U18s 3
Despite coming into the game on the back of
three successive home draws, Saturday saw Newcastle's youngsters once again
unable to improve on their solitary league victory on Tyneside this season.
The Little Benton pitch survived an inspection but both sides adapted well to
the conditions and there was little between them in the first quarter.
At that point though, a defensive aberration by Newcastle gave away possession
near their right hand corner. The ball was played inside to Charlie McCann
near the penalty spot and he turned before placing his shot perfectly inside
the right hand post.
Home 'keeper Will Brown had no chance with that but prevented a second goal
for the visitors within seconds, bravely diving at the feet of Anthony Elanga.
But it was only a reprieve, as McCann doubled his side's advantage eight
minutes before half-time, playing a neat one-two with a team mate before
cleverly curling home a shot from inside the box.
It looked all over when the visitors grabbed a third seconds before the
interval. Elanga wasn't to be denied on this occasion, picking up possession
on halfway and making for goal from the left flank, evading tackles before
finishing from six yards.
Despite possession being fairly equal in the opening 45 minutes and the
scoreline slightly flattering the Red Devils, the failure of the home side to
muster a single shot on target was the most telling statistic.
An improved second half showing from the Magpies saw Deece Kasinga flash a
shot narrowly wide and the visitors began to get rattled, their indiscipline
resulting in them receiving three yellow cards.
Newcastle did claw a goal back on 75 minutes; a delightful solo effort by Elliot
Anderson giving the midfielder for his third goal in as many games since
being elevated from the U16s in last month.
The Scottish youth international delicately tiptoed his way on the through the
Manchester defence from the left, reaching their penalty area before taking
the ball around the 'keeper and converting.
That wasn't the signal for a further revival though and Manchester were able
to register their third U18 league and cup success against us this season.
Team: Brown, Ebanks, Scott, Allen, Swailes, Gamblin, Reed, Rounsfell,
White, Anderson, Kasinga (Gilchrist 61).
Subs n/u: Harrison, Langley, Oliver, Stephenson.

"It falls on football's international

Quoting the Colchester manager, the Chronicle report that Callum Roberts
has been informed by NUFC that he'll be a free agent when his current deal at
SJP ends this summer.
Jamie Sterry and Callum Roberts have returned to Tyneside from
their loan spells in the Football League at Blackpool, Crewe Alexandra and Colchester United
The trio have barely featured for their loan clubs since leaving SJP in
January and are now available for United’s remaining U23 games following
The only one to actually start a game was full back Sterry, who completed 90
minutes against Northampton Town in League Two but was never called upon again
by the Railwaymen.
Three substitute outings for winger/striker Roberts meanwhile totalled just 37
minutes in the third tier for the U's - although it's claimed that he's less
than 100% fit due to ankle issue.
Striker Sorensen fared worst, playing just once for the Tangerines, given 32
minutes against Wycombe soon after arriving at Bloomfield Road in January.
The Dane then failed to appear in any of their subsequent eight games
and latterly wasn't even selected in the matchday squad - comments from
Blackpool hinted at a lack of quality in training.
Given the futility of these loans - and several previous temporary departures
from SJP (notably striker Tom Heardman at Bury), news that United are seeking
to recruit for a role of player loan co-ordinator cannot come too soon.

This Day in History
Born Or Died:
1878 Jimmy Howie born, Galston,
"Gentleman Jim" won three
First Division titles and one FA Cup while at Newcastle, also appearing
in three more FA Cup finals.
Signed from Bristol Rovers at a cost of £300 in May 1903, Jimmy was a vital
part of the midfield and a reliable source of goals.
The first of three full Scotland caps came his way in April 1905 against
England at Crystal Palace - with fellow Magpies Andy Aitken, Andy
McCombie and Peter McWilliam.
Leaving SJP in December 1910, he played for Huddersfield Town and subsequently
served QPR and Middlesbrough as manager.
Jimmy died in January 1963, by which time he was living in the London area and
running a tobacconists.
1896 Joe Harris born, Glasgow, Scotland.
A £750 signing from Middlesbrough,
Scottish International wing half Joe made his debut away to Liverpool on
Christmas Day 1925.
Making nine appearances for Newcastle's First Division Championship-winning
side in the 1926/27 season, he established himself further in the starting XI
Joining York City in June 1931, he passed away in his native Glasgow just over
two years later, following a short illness.
1967 Darren Bradshaw born, Sheffield. (1989-92)
Defender/utility player signed from York City for £10,000 following a loan spell at SJP.
Bradshaw began his career as an apprentice at Sheffield Wednesday but failed to
make the grade and was released by the Owls after suffering a broken leg.
Moving on to non-league Matlock Town, a stint at Chesterfield
on loan failed to result in a deal with the Spireites, but did lead to him
His displays there made an impression on City boss Bobby Saxton and once
installed at SJP as assistant to Jim Smith, Bradshaw arrived.
Playing across the back four and also as a holding midfielder, Darren debuted
in a 1-1 draw at Swindon Town in December 1989.
However he failed to establish himself in our starting XI and although
remaining a squad player for Ossie Ardiles, he featured just once under Kevin
In the wake of our successful campaign to avoid relegation in 1992 moved on to
Peterborough United, making a low-key return to SJP the following January as
Posh captain. However he was powerless to prevent a 3-0 win for his former
1994 saw Darren join Plymouth Argyle on loan and he left London Road for good
later that year, signing for a Blackpool side who were managed by a certain Sam
After three seasons at Bloomfield Road a free transfer to Rushden &
Diamonds, remaining with the club until they made their league bow in 2001 -
although an Achilles injury the previous year restricted his first team action.
A brief spell with Stevenage Borough ended with a move nearer to home as
Bradshaw signed for Worksop Town and played in the same team as a certain Chris
However, a ruptured Achilles tendon in a game at Stocksbridge Park Steels in
April 2003 sidelined him for almost a year.
Darren made a playing comeback but was released by the Tigers in 2004, briefly
turning out for Belper Town the following season.
1969 Warren Barton born, Stoke Newington. (1995-2002)
"Centre parting" was once the nation's most costly
defender and made three appearances for England in 1995 (although his Three
Lions debut against Ireland at Lansdowne Road was abandoned due to crowd
Raised as an Arsenal fan in Islington and later South Woodford, Barton began
his career as a schoolboy at Watford before being released, deemed too small to
Barton then accepted an offer of a YTS (Youth Training Scheme) at Leyton Orient
but was shown the door halfway through his two year stay by then O's boss Frank
A stint with non-league Leytonstone & Ilford (now Dagenham & Redbridge)
followed before a move to Maidstone United in 1989.
Scouted by Newcastle at that point (Ossie Ardiles being in command), Barton
opted instead to sign for Wimbledon - who outbid United's offer of £250K by
Five years later we shelled out £4m to capture Barton from the Dons, but not
before he'd scored against us in the League Cup.
After an eventful but trophy-free stay at SJP Barton lost his place at right
back to Aaron Hughes and was allowed to leave by Bobby Robson in January 2002,
at the age of 33.
A move to Derby saw Barton made captain at Pride Park, Rob Lee making a similar
move from SJP but the pair failing to keep the Rams in the Premiership.
October 2003 saw him moving on to QPR before an unsuccessful trial with
Leicester led to him becoming a Womble again - albeit as a coach to the
reformed MK Dons.
Finally his career came full circle when he rejoined Dagenham & Redbridge,
coaching there while also running the travel agency that he established while a
Always conscious of his public image while a Magpie and consistently
pro-Newcastle when speaking to the media, Barton has appeared as a pundit on
Skysports and Channel 5.
2008 found him in Egypt and India as part of a joint British Council/Premier
League initiative to educate overseas coaches.
Emigrating to the USA, Barton became a youth coach for the LA Galaxy and later
an advisor to the San Diego Flash and Los Angeles Blues clubs. He also worked as a
Premier League commentator for US TV.
1973 Michael Devine born, Cobh, Ireland. (1992)
An Ireland youth international goalkeeper, Mick moved to
England as a youngster and spent four years at Middlesbrough.
Appearing as a trialist for United in a 0-2 reserve loss to Sheffield
Wednesday during April 1992, Devine wasn't retained and later joined hometown
side Cobh Ramblers after briefly playing for Northallerton Town.
Subsequently with fellow League of Ireland sides Waterford and Cork City, he continued his career at Fermoy FC and Cobh Wanderers before retiring

1902 Nottingham Forest (a)
P27, 30pts, 3rd/18
Daniel Pattinson was an outside left who took his only chance well,
with a goal on his debut. However, he returned to the reserve team
without ever being called upon again. This win put United third, six
points behind the mackems who topped the table having played one game fewer.

Arthur Goddard equalised.

P30, 38pts, 13th/21
Paul Gascoigne struck a first half penalty wide of the target after

And when a Perry Groves header was deemed to have crossed the line it
looked like a blank afternoon at Highbury - in stark contrast to the
previous season's 1-0 win.
However a fine second half strike from Paul Goddard leveled the scores
before Michael O'Neill missed a golden chance to win it.

P32, 57pts, 3rd/22

Crouch(10), Gerrard(35), Cisse(52pen)
After a dispiriting defeat at Old Trafford the previous Sunday,
United were two behind and in need of a lift as half time approached.
Shola Ameobi then headed in a Scott
Parker centre to give Glenn Roeder's side some hope, before Jean-Alain
Boumsong then contrived to spurn a great chance to head United level.

clumsily upending Peter Crouch.
