Best Match:

Probably our 2-0 win over Pompey in Roeder's first game. It was such a delight to see us play such attacking one-touch football after 18 months of hell under Souness. One of our best performances this year.

 

Worst Match:

We were absolutely unbelieveable against Sheffield United the other week but the 3-0 away defeat to Man City was probably the worst. The only time this year I've turned a Newcastle game off at half time. Shocking peformance and I knew straight afterwards, it would Souness' last game in charge.

 

Best Goal Scored:

Shearer's goal against Pompey is the goal that sticks out in my mind. Great finish for a great player and he deserved to break the record in that way.

 

Worst Goal Conceeded:

There's quite a few. The two Bolton goals the other week were shocking to conceed as were the Fulham ones and the Rooney goals last season at OT.

 

Best Player:

It's gonna be either Shearer or Given. Given has never put in a bad performance all season; he is arguably one of the best Goalkeepers in this league, some of his saves are World Class and in terms of consistency, there are very few who can match him. Shearer was amazing as well. We couldn't score if he wasn't on the pitch and his goals and leadership helped us to 7th place.

 

Worst Player:

Gotta be Boumsong. His mistakes were ridiculous and I'm so glad we managed to get rid of him. He was the poorest defender I've ever seen and Bramble is even a better defender than him. He looked clueless and in a different world on the pitch. Bramble and Ramage even managed more decent appearances than he did. Possibly one of the worst defenders we've ever had.

 

Best Overall Moment:

Watching Shearer off in style with his penalty at the Gallowgate end and the reception the fans created that night. Also making Europe beating Chelsea 1-0 was a pretty special moment.

 

Worst Overall Moment:

The last few days of the transfer window; I went in with so much hope and expectation and came out with Rossi, Bernard and Sibierski - the latter being the only one to impress thus far.

 

Best XI:

 

This year:

 

Given

Solano Taylor Moore Babayaro

Milner Parker Bowyer N'Zogbia

Emre

Shearer

 

This Season:

 

Given

Solano Taylor Ramage N'Zogbia

Milner Emre Butt Dyer

Sibierski Martins

 

Best Signing made:

Probably Sibierski as he's the only signing that has impressed me this season. Duff has been a let down and Martins is only just beginning to shine.

 

Biggest Mistake in the Transfer market (i.e. The one player we should have bought but didn't or the player we really shouldn't have bought):

Duff was a waste of £5m imo. We didn't really need him and he hasn't really impressed. That money could have been better spent at the back or upfront - Midfield is not a priority.

 

The point at which you were proudest to be a Toon fan:

Probably, like T27, being involved in the Hitzfeld campaign and seeing it peak like it did. It showed what a group of Toon fans can do if they have the commitment to succeed.

 

The point at which you were deeply embarassed of the club (if any):

I'm never really embarassed to be a fan of Newcastle but some of the performances have made me feel like the rest of the world is laughing at us.

 

Best Home atmosphere:

The Shearer Testimonial was amazing and the scarf waving made it even more special. It really was a special way to bid farewell to Shearer.

 

Best away atmosphere:

Probably the Sunderland atmosphere after Shearer scored the penalty. It really did shut them up  bluebiggrin.gif

 

Toon Pros of this year:

Shearer breaking the record, Souness finally leaving the club, reaching Europe against the odds, qualifying for the Knockout stages of the UEFA Cup, Taylor finally getting his first goal, the 4-1 thrashing of Sunderland, the development of Butt after his return from Birmingham, Milner starting to look very good on the wing, Dyer back to fitness (hopefully)

 

Toon Cons of this year:

Roeder isn't the right man for the job, Shepherd is still chairman, the spending in transfer window was ridiculous, Owen's injured, we still have players like Bramble, Carr and Babayaro at the club, Luque doesn't look like he's going to get any better, we haven't replaced Shearer.

 

Overall Comment:

Decent year but could and should have been alot better than it was. Major things need to be changed in 2007, we need better defenders and a better manager, we need to win a trophy and we need to get away from the bottom half of the table. Bring on 2007

Overall Comment: A year that started well after Souness was sacked, we did everything right up until the announcement of GR as permenant manager. After that it snowballed. Owen injury forced the club into panic mode and we walked away losers in the transfer market. All the hard work put in at the start of the year has been un-done, and now in 2007, we've got the same fuking problems only this time the fans dont hate the manager.

Best Match:

 

Sunderland 1-4 Newcastle. Just... just... och. God. Yes. Yes yes.

 

Worst Match:

 

Newcastle 0-1 Sheffield United. Absolutely embarrassing. Must surely go down as one of our worst Premiership defeats ever? It has to do. One of the lowest of the lows. Disgraceful.

 

Best Goal Scored:

 

Nobby Solano vs Everton. Absolutely beautiful goal. The swerve, the technique, the teasing pace. It was just glorious. That was Nobby Solano quality that was... just awesome.

 

Worst Goal Conceeded:

 

Has to be Xabi Alonso's. That's just embarrassing.

 

Best Player:

 

Shay Given. By an absolute country mile.

 

Worst Player:

 

Jean-Alain Boumsong. By an absolute country mile.

 

Best Overall Moment:

 

Has to be Shearer's record breaking goal against Pompey. Stuff dreams are made of really. Not-so-closely followed by the Europe-clinching victory over Chelsea.

 

Worst Overall Moment:

 

Roeder's full-time appointment. Sceptical at first, but my God. Absolutely pathetic that we appointed a man of Roeder's stature, really. And Owen's injury at the World Cup.

 

Best XI:

 

Based on individual performances:

 

Given

 

Carr --- Bramble --- Moore --- Ramage

 

Solano --- Parker --- Bowyer --- N'Zogbia

 

Sharer --- Ameobi

 

Now:

 

Given

 

Solano --- Taylor --- Moore --- Babayaro

 

Milner --- Emre --- Butt --- N'Zogbia

 

Dyer --- Martins

 

Best Signing made:

 

Sibierski, but in a year or so's time we'll be creaming over Martins.

 

Biggest Mistake in the Transfer market (i.e. The one player we should have

bought but didn't or the player we really shouldn't have bought):

 

Duff. I mean... why?

 

The point at which you were proudest to be a Toon fan:

 

The atmosphere generated at Shearer's testimonial.

 

The point at which you were deeply embarassed of the club (if any):

 

The home losses of this season.

 

Best Home atmosphere:

 

Shearer's testimonial.

 

Best away atmosphere:

 

Dunno.

Shay Given

 

 

Worst Player:

no doubt. Albert Luque.

 

 

Best Overall Moment:

Souness Fired..

 

Worst Overall Moment:

The tension around the club at this very moment. though we are gettin some results, but with all this belgravia talk goin on  i rather have it sorted out sooner rather than later.

 

 

Best XI:

Given

Solano-Taylor-Bramble(yes)-Ramage

Milner-Parker-Butt-Duff

--->Martins-Owen.

 

Best Signing made:

Sibierski. no doubt.

Owens injury.

 

Overall Comment:

Its Clear that Shearer never was goin to be easy to replace, i dont think martins is the ideal replacements, but he is anyway a very good player. Tides seems to be turning and hopefully Glen can finish this season of in style, like he did last year. And please with all these takeover talks. its not doin anyone any good with pure speculations, and i hope its sorted out quick to get full focus on field from all parts of the club.
