Posted on by Steve Sayce

This week I spoke with North-East based sports writer and Newcastle fan Kristan Heneage (@Kheneage) to get his thoughts ahead of Saturday’s visit to St James Park… Q. The campaign to sack Alan Pardew appears to be gathering pace, and yet Newcastle United lie eighth in the Premier League table ahead of this weekend’s game against QPR. Which camp are you in and why? A. I’ve essentially set up my own camp in the middle. I say that because, I agree … Continue reading

Stephen Street’s Queen’s Parklife

Posted on by Site Admin

R’s fan and legendary Smiths and Blur producer Stephen Street gave his thoughts on the season so far to IndyR’s this week… Coming away from the recent game v Man City I was buzzing with excitement despite only drawing a game we could/should have won. More than any other season I can remember, the international calendar has played havoc with our fixtures. It has been so stop/start that it has been difficult to find momentum. But I feel now that … Continue reading

The Disruptive Two Week International Break and a Look Ahead at Saturday’s Game at Newcastle

Posted on by Finney

This latest two week break came at the worst possible time for us if you ask me. Just when the R’s put a team into place to start the climb up the table the international break comes into play and we find ourselves in a wee bit of a limbo. It’s not that I don’t agree with internationals, I do, I even go to watch them from time to time, but why oh why now and why can’t it go … Continue reading

Manuel Pellegrini delivered both the League Cup and the Premier League trophy to Manchester City in his first year. What has he brought with him that’s different to Roberto Mancini? A. Two clear things. He’s bought a calmness and a togetherness at City that was clearly lacking under Mancini. There were blatant cliques … Continue reading
