Newcastle United

What next after Alan Pardew?

Return to Hull reveals how much has changed at Newcastle in a year

Newcastle manager John Carver spoke ahead of his side's match against Hull City on Saturday about turning around the run of form that his side have shown in recent weeks.

Last season's trip to the KC Stadium was no place for the faint-hearted for anybody connected with Newcastle United. If anybody needs a reminder, this was the day that Alan Pardew flicked his head in the direction of David Meyler in a foolhardy moment of madness that left him fined and banned.

The history books tell us that the Magpies recorded a 4-1 win over Hull City and that it left them in eighth place in the table. If only that had told the whole story, though; certainly in the case of Pardew,...

Defeat should rule out John Carver for permanent Newcastle job

Eljero Elia bagged a brace to see Southampton fend of Newcastle 2-1 at St. James' Park.
Has John Carver sealed his fate after a third straight defeat?

With no manager, the owner rarely spotted and no hope of any January signings, Newcastle United are quickly becoming the footballing equivalent of the Mary Celeste, drifting aimlessly in a sea of mediocrity.

Their 2-1 defeat at home to Southampton on Saturday night was played out in front of their smallest crowd since September, and the atmosphere among the 49,000 who did turn up was as subdued as it has been in years.

Focus on boardroom as Newcastle manager decision looms

Newcastle United's history books tell us that they generally haven't opted for half measures when it comes to appointing a new leader.

Or at least until owner Mike Ashley appointed Kevin Keegan back in 2008. It was after Keegan's second coming that Ashley bucked the trend of Newcastle going for big-name managers with strong reputations in the managerial world at St James' Park. What happened after Keegan's not-so-happy third coming to Newcastle appeared to be Ashley changing tack. He stopped going...

Life after Pardew has started poorly but Newcastle have enough to survive

Chelsea extended their lead at the top with a 2-0 victory over Newcastle, while Manchester City were unable to consolidate all three points in a 1-1 draw against Everton.

Newcastle United's 2-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea on Saturday did not come as any surprise -- although the Magpies' first-half performance at Stamford Bridge was a refreshing change for the Geordie faithful who again backed their side for another long away trip; their third to London inside the space of a month.

Even Newcastle's most optimistic fans would not have fancied a shock win against the Blues. Some bookmakers had served up odds as high as 18/1 before the game for a United win.

Chelsea sleepwalk against Toon as lethargy stalks Jose Mourinho's men

Diego Costa celebrates his strike as Chelsea beat Newcastle 2-0 to go two points clear at the top of the Premier League.

LONDON -- Three quick thoughts from Chelsea's 2-0 win over Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday.

1. Victory calms Mourinho

Jose Mourinho began the afternoon by turning on the charm with fourth official Mike Jones. There was a joke, a cheeky smile and an affectionate pat on the back.

Perhaps that Football Association charge for claiming conspiracy has forced a change in outlook, though few would expect him to remain totally respectful of officialdom for long. When defeat happens, referees...

Newcastle can rely on recent history in visit to Chelsea

Newcastle United caretaker manager John Carver spoke to the media ahead of his side's Premier League match against Chelsea.

Manager-less Newcastle United head to Stamford Bridge this weekend to play Chelsea -- the side most likely to win this season's Premier League.

When they met at St James' Park in early December, Newcastle were good value for their 2-1 win, a Chelsea defeat that manager Jose Mourinho blamed on the Newcastle ballboys, but this one is an entirely more difficult proposition for the Magpies, as their odds of 13/1 to win the game remind us.

Stamford Bridge has been a very poor hunting ground for...
