Newcastle United to issue suits to stop Thauvin and co. wearing tuxedos

Some Newcastle players have worn tuxedos to matches this season but they won't any more.

Newcastle United are planning to issue their first team with official club suits in a bid to quell anger caused by several players choosing to turn up for games wearing tuxedos this season.

New signings Chancel Mbemba and Florian Thauvin have both been criticised in some quarters for arriving before home games dressed in formal evening attire.

Indeed, Newcastle legend Alan Shearer publicly lambasted Thauvin for not taking matches seriously after the French winger was photographed at St James' Park...

Desperation returns to Newcastle United after hammering at Man City

Sergio Aguero netted five to match the Premier League record in Manchester City's 6-1 win over Newcastle United.

The only way is up for Newcastle United. The incline is getting steeper by the week, though, and while no Newcastle fan really expected to be walking away from the Etihad Stadium with a comfortable win, you do wonder where the Magpies are heading.

They are rock bottom of the Premier League with the worst goal difference and have picked up just five points away from home from a possible 39 dating back to last season. Incredibly, they are in a worse position than a feeble Sunderland side, and that...

1. Five-star Aguero enters the record books

The smile -- or was it a disbelieving laugh? -- on Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini's face as he patted Sergio Aguero on the back said it all. There were still 25 minutes to play when Aguero left the pitch, replaced by Wilfried Bony, but anything that happened in the game's closing stages...

Struggling Newcastle have nothing to lose at Manchester City

You won't find a happier group of away fans should Newcastle pull off a win at City on Saturday.

Here we are in October already.

And while Geordie fans are enjoying unseasonably warm weather in Newcastle they are yet to savour three Premier League points, and unless something really dramatic happens at the Etihad Stadium there's a good chance that the barren run of form will last longer than the unusually sunny climate on Tyneside.

If Manchester City do what they are supposed to do, and Newcastle display the type of form that has yielded just three Premier League points all season, the wait...

Newcastle let a win vs. Chelsea slip away but have positives to draw from

After Chelsea's comeback draw against Newcastle, ESPN FC's Steve Nicol says Jose Mourinho still has big issues to address.

A full moon shone over St James' Park as Newcastle United players picked the bones out of the performance against Chelsea after a 2-2 draw in the media mixed zone. Sadly, they were not talking about taking the full quota of points after coming close to a victory against the Premier League champions.

St James' Park is a bogey ground for Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho and his players in recent times and it looked like that tough run of form on the Tyneside was going to continue as the Magpies swept...

Chelsea errors still evident despite comeback vs. spirited Newcastle

After Chelsea's comeback draw against Newcastle, ESPN FC's Steve Nicol says Jose Mourinho still has big issues to address.

NEWCASTLE, England -- Three observations from Chelsea's late comeback 2-2 draw at Newcastle.

1. Chelsea escape with a point

Given what might have been, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will be happy to leave St James' Park with a point. After three consecutive defeats, including a miserable cup exit at the hands of Sheffield Wednesday's second string, this Newcastle team could not have been more for the taking. And somehow Chelsea nearly lost. Great spirit remains in this team despite their poor...
