Following a 1-0 home win in December, victory at Turf Moor would
give United their only PL win double of the season.
So far this season, Newcastle have won four games on the road - at
Leeds, Brentford, Southampton and Norwich. Along with draws at
Watford, Palace, Brighton and West Ham, that leaves them with a
points tally of 16 away from SJP, their smallest since 2017/18 when
they reached the same total.

From The Manchester Evening News, Thursday:
Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is on the
verge of joining Newcastle United. Sources say Henderson, 25, was in
Newcastle for talks on Wednesday and a deal is ‘99% done’.
It is understood discussions have been held over a season-long loan
but a permanent transfer has not been ruled out.
The Whitehaven native is under contract at Old Trafford until 2025
and was unable to make a loan departure this season - ending up with
just three cup outings.
Henderson had played 26 times for the Red Devils in all competitions
in 2020/21 - including 13 games in the Premier League plus his first
senior England cap .
That followed successive season-long switches to Sheffield United,
the second of which saw him make 36 top-flight appearances.
Henderson's likely departure for pastures new next season (at least)
looks to be a consequence of incoming Manchester United boss Erik
tan Haag opting to retain David de Gea as his first choice
On-loan Newcastle midfielder Matty Longstaff was an unused
substitute on Wednesday night, as Mansfield Town made it to League
Two playoff final.
2-1 ahead following the home leg of their semi-final against
Northampton Town, the Stags won 1-0 at Sixfields Stadium to book
their place at Wembley.
While Matty had no opportunity to add to his six goals this season,
there was a busy 90 minute shift for club colleague and SJP old boy
James Perch at the ripe old age of 36.
Mansfield will face Port Vale in the playoff
final on Saturday May 28th, after they beat Swindon Town on
penalties following a 2-2 draw on aggregate.
Following an eye-catching loan spell at Bristol Rovers,
there's a further chance for Elliot Anderson to impress ahead
of next season, with
the Newcastle youngster named in the latest Scotland U21 squad.
The 19 year-old is among 22 players selected for European U21
qualifiers against Belgium and Denmark as follows:
05.06.2022 Belgium (a) Sint-Truden
10.06.2022 Denmark (a) Vejle
This is the third Scotland U21 squad that Anderson has been named
in, but he's yet to get any pitch time at this level.
PS: There's no place in the squad this time for fellow Magpie
Lucas De Bolle.
From The Mail, Tuesday:
The pre-season preparations of Newcastle United and Wolves have been
thrown into disarray after a US tournament was cancelled at short
understands the Premier League pair were due to cross the Atlantic
and take part in the first 'Ohio Cup' during July, along with two
sides from Spain thought to be Villareal and Valencia.
Plans were at a very advanced
stage, according to insiders, with the finishing touches being put
to a tournament which would have seen two matches hosted in
Cincinnati and two in Columbus.
However, both English sides have been left fuming after the plug was
suddenly pulled - with barely any explanation.
Wolves are still expecting to travel to the US but are now in talks
with MLS clubs to try to arrange fixtures. Newcastle are exploring
The scheduling of MLS games throughout July makes playing games
against US sides in their own country problematic - Newcastle's last

Jake heads out
Ahead of Newcastle revealing their Academy and Development retained
lists, goalkeeper Jake Turner has confirmed that he's leaving
after no contract offer was made to him.
Now 23, Turner joined United in 2019 as a free agent after previous
club Bolton Wanderers went into administration.
Appearing for the U23s, a loan move to League Two
Morecambe followed in September 2020 where he made 17 appearances in
all competitions before losing his place and returning to SJP.
This season then saw him loaned out to fellow fourth tier side
Colchester United, playing 14 times in league and cup.
What proved to be his final game in a Newcastle shirt was a 2-4 loss
to Boro U23s at the Riverside last month.
Multiple media reports assert that incoming Manchester United boss
Erik ten Hag will be assisted by Steve McClaren - over 20
years after his previous spell on the Old Trafford coaching staff
Working under Sir Alex Ferguson for two years before leaving in 2001
to manage Boro and then the England national team, McClaren's next
appointment was at Dutch club FC Twente - where ten Hag was his

Scotland also face one WC qualifier and three NL ties in June - it
remains to be seen whether Ryan Fraser is included.
It's also unclear whether Jamal Lewis could be in line for a recall
to the Northern Ireland squad for their NL ties, following an
operation on his groin earlier this year. He has been seen training
along with the Magpies first team recently.

Born Or Died:
Andy Smailes born, Radcliffe,
Inside right signed from Blyth
Spartans at a cost of £300, having begun his playing career with Ashington.
Debuting for Newcastle in a 1-2 defeat at Sheffield United in December 1919,
Smailes marked his SJP debut with a goal in a 2-1 victory over the Blades a
Enjoying his best season in 1920/21 when netting 18 league goals - one less
than top scorer Neil Harris - Smailes fell from favour and played his final
game in a 0-2 loss away to Sheffield United in September 1922.
Signing for Sheffield Wednesday in a £1,500 deal the following month, Smailes
moved on again 12 months later to Bristol City.
Rotherham August 1929
Joining Rotherham as a centre half in August 1929, he switched from player to
trainer in 1934 and was Millers boss from 1952 to 1958 - narrowly failing to
gain promotion to the First Division on goal average in 1955.
Managing Scarborough between 1959 and 1961, Andy's passing was recorded in the
Somerset town of Shepton Mallet during October 1978.
Laurent Robert born, Saint-Benoit,
French international left winger
who began his career with Montpelier and was signed from Paris St.Germain in August 2001
at a cost of £9.5m.
Introduced to the SJP crowd ahead
of the Intertoto tie with 1860 Munich, Laurent's first outing was in Robert Lee's
testimonial against Athletic Bilbao, before a debut in a 1-1 draw at Chelsea,
with Bobby Robson saying, "I think we have signed a
Robert's first goal came in his third game ofr the club and was a memorable effort to cap a 4-1 win at the smoggies.
Three more strikes then followed in four-goal victories (4-3 at home to Man
United, 4-0 at Bolton and 4-1 at home to Ipswich in the League Cup), before
sealing our famous Highbury victory as we topped the table.
Five more goals and various assists followed that season as United finished fourth, going one place better in
the following campaign - although Laurent enjoyed a less prolific
season in front of goal.
A dozen netbusters followed in what proved to be Sir Bobby's last full campaign
in charge, including two stupendous efforts in a home win over Spurs in
However, those goals and other wonderful free kick conversions were becoming
less and less representative of Robert's input, while writing a regular comment
column on his own website (often critical of the club) hardly endeared him to
colleagues and fans.
Grappling on the training pitch with Andy Griffin and storming into the SJP
press room to confront a reporter showed some of the gallic fire in his belly,
but an awful display on the night we exited from the UEFA Cup in Marseille
showed up his unreliability.
The final season of Robert's SJP career was something of a long
goodbye, his attitude never likely to prove popular with the
newly-installed Graeme Souness.
This had come to a head by the time United played the second leg of their UEFA
Cup Quarter Final away to Sporting Lisbon.
Robert watching from the stand as his side threw away a lead having being
dropped following pre-match comments in the press criticising club
performances, tactics and transfers - claiming (correctly) that United had gone
backwards in twelve months.
With no communication between him and Souness a parting was inevitable and
following a farewell bow against Chelsea when he left the SJP pitch clad only
in grey underpants, his bags were packed.
Joining Portsmouth on a
season-long loan, the departure of French boss Alain Perrin soon sent that into
a tailspin - after just one goal and a public refusal to be among the substitute in
a game at the mackems.
Nominally a Newcastle player again in late 2005, he was released from his deal
and joined Portuguese side Benfica in 2006.
After just one year in Lisbon though, he was sold on to Spanish side Levante
and after an
equally uninspiring spell in La Liga returned to
England with Derby County in 2008.
However, Robert played just four times for the Rams and could do nothing to halt
their headlong slide into the Championship.
His next stop was Canada, signing
for MLS side Toronto after a successful trial, playing under his former United coach John Carver.
That lasted barely five months though before the winger was on the move again,
linking up with his one-time Magpies team mate Nicos Dabizas at Greek side
Back in France by
2009 Robert tried to keep fit by training with former club PSG - along with
fellow free agent, Fabrice Pancrate.
And when the latter was offered a trial at SJP, Robert encouraged him to go -
before urging United to let him return, when a deal was agreed for Pancrate.
Chris Hughton mysteriously lost his number though....
Hanging up his boots, Laurent returned to former club Montpellier during 2014
as a coach, assisting their youth and women's teams.
Marwood born St. Albans.
Reserve and Academy midfielder who made his second string debut off the bench
in March 2007 against Sheffield United at
Chesterfield's former Saltergate home.
The son of former Hull City, Arsenal and
Sheffield Wednesday & United winger
Brian, James failed to win a professional deal at SJP
and was released in 2009, having suffered
numerous injury setbacks.
After trials at both Darlington and Carlisle,
he signed for Blyth Spartans and later joined
Gateshead, via a stint at Northern League side, Team Northumbria.
Loaned to AFC Halifax during the 2011/12 season, James later returned to the
International Stadium and agreed a new contract with the Tynesiders in
Marwood helped Gateshead secure a third -place finish in the
Conference and a place in the promotion playoff final
in May 2014.
Beaten 1-2 by
Cambridge United at Wembley SPFL side St.Mirren
took advantage of his free
agent status and he debuted against Motherwell the following August.
Paisley failed to work out for Marwood
though and he left in January
2015 after failing to score in 15 league and cup games.
Forest Green Rovers
for the rest of that season, he
returned to Gateshead but was released in
Turning to coaching and completing his UEFA B licence, James
moved to the USA with
San Diego-based PDL side SoCal Surf Soccer.
Max Johnson born, Norwich.
Academy 'keeper signed from Bury in 2007,
only to sustain knee ligament damage
on his debut that sidelined
him for five months.
Appearing for the club's U18s, Max also guested for Chorley in a pre-season
friendly ahead of the 2009/10 season and had a stint on loan at Motherwell soon
Regular bench cover for Newcastle's reserve side, Johnson made his second string
debut against Boro at Whitley Park in April 2010.
Leaving United soon after, his next port of call was Inverness
Caledonian Thistle, before training with Colorado
Rapids over in the USA the following summer.
Beginning the 2011/12 campaign back in the region with
Blyth Spartans, Max was then spotted in the
colours of non-league sides Bacup Borough and Woodley Sports, while also
training with Manchester City.
Graduating to the City reserve team squad,
he unfortunately suffered another knee injury while playing in a training
ground game in February - assisting with coaching at City's Academy while regaining fitness.
A short-term move to Barrow in March 2013 as cover failed to see
Max play for the Bluebirds, but he continued his coaching career at Manchester
City and as part of the Manchester International Football Academy.

After Iam McFaul's penalty save at Ibrox had kept the

over a week after his 26th birthday, Newcastle confirmed that midfielder Jamie McClen had been released
by the club.
That brought an end to the Toon career of a man labelled in some
quarters as "the luckiest **** on Tyneside" -
even if many fans still didn't know his name (McClen not McGlen...).
2008 The London Evening Standard stated that
Chris Mort would be standing down as Newcastle Chairman
with immediate effect.
His replacement was announced as Derek Llambias, an Ashley

journalists - the shape of things to come....
