Title: Gateshead FC
Post by: geordiedean on Saturday 5 September 2009, 05:41:05 pm
Just heard the Gateshead game was abandoned because of a serious injury to our former player Martain Brittain he suffered a broken leg and had to have treatment on the pitch for over 30 mins before leaving by ambulance

30 mins treatment jesus it must have been very serious to take that long and for the match to be abandoned

anyone know any more on this??

That sounds like something serious if it took 30 minutes to stabilise him to move him. Hope he is ok.

Why did they abandon the game?

Hazard a guess that he couldn't be moved from the point of occurrence, i.e. on the pitch, for 30 mins.

Not after 30 mins hanging around & the players would need to warm up before restarting.

this is all i can find on it but as someone said earlier must have been bad if they had to stabilise him for half an hour before moving, usually they are very quick to get the injured party off the field of play

As he points out though, Gateshead are also part-time, and as such, you'd think given the circumstances of the players a little bit of leeway could be given. If they were ahead fair enough, but 0-0 with 13 minutes left, just give a point each man.

The length of time the treatment took as well should be considered. It would have been bad enough anyway, but the fact the Gateshead players had seen one of their own obviously writhing in agony for half an hour must have been something new to everyone, so it's not like you can simply say, "they should just get on with it", and that's before you even take into considering it would have taken another 10 minutes or so to warmup again properly.

I agree, but I can also see the Yeading manager's point: why should he be forced to agree to a replay his club can't afford and in which he might have to put out a weakened team through no fault of his own or his team? It would be gracious of him to accept a point, I think, and I hope that's what happens.

No-win situation this one, really. I can see why the Heed players would be traumatised and not up to playing, but the opposition shouldn't be forced to travel and play again.

Hopefully Gateshead can just give the three points to the opposition and not be docked additional points for refusing to play. Maybe common sense will prevail for once.

Hayes & Yeading have been given the three-points. Gateshead are appealing.

If those quotes from the Chairman & Kris Gate are true, then that's a shocking decision.

Quote
Gateshead stunned by yet another bad break

Sep 17 2009 by Jeff Bowron, Evening Chronicle

GATESHEAD boss Ian Bogie has branded the decision to hand Hayes and Yeading United all three points for the recent abandoned game at the International Stadium as ‘diabolical.’

The Blue Square Premier clash on September 5 was goalless with 14 minutes left when there was a 40-minute hold up due to a serious injury to the Tynesiders’ Martin Brittain.

Brittain broke his tibia and fibula and was finally taken to hospital by ambulance with the game abandoned around 5:30.

Hayes and Yeading boss Garry Haylock claimed it was 10-man Gateshead’s refusal to restart the game which forced the abandonment, rather than Brittain’s serious injury.

And that claim has been backed up the Football Conference, with Gateshead subsequently charged on rule 8.3 for ‘failing to fulfil a fixture.’

Instead of a rematch, or letting the score at the time stand, the Londoners have been awarded a victory.

Gateshead have put in an appeal against the decision.

Bogie said: “In the circumstances of what took place that afternoon, it is a diabolical decision to hand all three points to Hayes and Yeading.

“We were not losing at the time and we did not refuse to go back on.

“The referee never came to our dressing room or buzzed for the players to go back on the pitch.

“I was stunned by Garry Haylock’s comments at the time and am dumbfounded by this decision.”


Gateshead captain Kris Gate backed up his manager’s words, and insists his side would have gone back to finish the game if they had been told to do so.

He said: “We were never asked to go back on.

“We were not in the right frame of mind, but if we were going to be blamed for the abandonment and the points given to Hayes and Yeading we would have been out there.”


Gateshead chairman Graham Wood blames a misunderstanding for the controversy.

Wood said: “Assistant manager Jeff Wrightson and secretary Mike Coulson were told by referee Andy Madley he would take into account the situation and people’s opinions.

“Crucially, the referee stated he would make the final decision, which is at odds with the claim we refused to go back on after the long lay-off.

“In our opinion it was inappropriate to restart the game as the players had been badly affected by the seriousness of the injury to Martin Brittain.

“We have been unintentionally misled by the referee and both myself and the Hayes chairman agreed at the time a draw would be the fairest outcome.”


The board of the Football Conference will now either rubber-stamp the original decision or come up with another alternative.

The Football Conference have charged Gateshead FC with a breach of Rule 8.6 - "failing to fulfil an engagement", following the abandonment of the Blue square Premier fixture against Hayes & Yeading United last month.

Gateshead chairman Graham Wood, secretary Mike Coulson, manager Ian Bogie and assistant manager Jeff Wrightson travelled by train for the hearing at Conference headquarters in Birmingham.


A Panel of independent members of the conference found the charge proved and made the following decisions:-.

1. Gateshead FC was found guilty of "failure to fulfil an engagement" by being responsible for the above match being abandoned by the referee.

2. The result of the match at the time, 0-0, is to stand with each side picking up a point.

3. Gateshead FC however is deducted one point, in accordance with Rule 8.6.

4. The club has also received a fine of £2,500 - suspended until Gateshead's final match in the Football Conference this season, 2009/10, subject to a similar breach of Rule not being repeated.

* Gateshead Football Club has the right of Appeal in accordance with Rule 17.4 within 14 days from the date of the written notice of this decision.

As it now stands following the outcome of the hearing, Gateshead still have nine points - but now from 15 games rather than 14.

By Jeff Bowron

Given that Hayes & Yeading will now just get 1 point rather than 3 and are a relegation rival, I think Gateshead should be pretty pleased with that outcome.

I think this season was all about survival. Remember seeing an interview with the owner saying at full potential Gateshead could eventually be a club which floats between Leagues One and Two. Seems ambitious, and luckily for them not in the George Reynolds sense.

I've had loads of experience with them through my local side Hampton & Richmond, we've had plenty of run-ins with them over the last six years. Bunch of w*****s who think they are a big club because they have fans who supported a big club once. BUt then I'm sure I've had this debate on here before.

I laughed my tits off when they dropped out of the play-offs. I love gateshead as well as the chairman/owner was the chairman of Hampton for a couple of years and sold all his shares in the club to the supporters trust for £1. Lovely bloke is Graham Wood.

Thought they took the decision to go full time following promotion last year,didn't realise they were still part time if so they've done well.

Should be an interesting season, hopefully a comfortable midtable finish this year and then build further on it.

It's a hard league to judge, with some teams like Luton signing up a lot of good players and the emergence of Crawley paying transfer fees of £100,000+ for players. Then you have the other end of the spectrum, teams like Histon and Hayes who's squads will be made up fully of young academy players released/on-loan from Football League clubs.

Crawley look really dodgy. Sergio Torres who played against us last season in the Championship, for a 6 figure sum. No way that can end well financially.

The game was 75 minutes old, so its mission accomplished in terms of the teams getting a run out and a bit of match pratice, so the decision to abandon the game was entirely understandable and correct in the circumstances.

Unfortunately it's the nature of the beast. The Conference set a minimum admission price and Gateshead are one of the cheapest in the league, last season some of the ex-league clubs such as Cambridge were charging £18 to get in.

With the likes of Luton, Grimsby, Darlington, Cambridge, Wrexham, York, Mansfield, Rushden, Kidderminster and Oxford last season all having been league clubs until recently it's seen the standard of the Conference massively leap up (and prices), effectively making it League 3. It's a completely different World to the last time Gateshead were a Conference side (mid-90s), then the big teams were the likes of Kidderminster, Woking etc who averaged just over a thousand, now you have the likes of Luton & Oxford last season averaging 7 and 6 thousand fans.

Gateshead just need to keep on building for the next couple of years to become competitive at the top end of the league, but that will depend a lot on the Tyneside media / local populace starting to take them seriously as a professional football club.

Strictly speaking the furthest a Northern league team has to travel is Penrith (div 1) or Whitehaven (div 2).

A season ticket at Whitley Bay is £85, or £100 for a parent and child. The best value of all ironically is just down the road from Gateshead at Dunston, where I believe a season-ticket is £50!! And Dunston are a top side at that level. With our kick-offs rarely at Saturday 3pm I often take in a NL game, and they are great value for money. decent standard, and some decent crowds, Whitley Bay especially as has been mentioned.

If memory serves last season it was a fiver at Whitley Bay, a tenner at Gateshead and £4.50 at Dunston. I might be wrong by the odd quid as I tend to get around different grounds, so apologies if I've got it wrong. But those are ball park figures.

I'm a resident of Fawdon and really miss Blue Star!

Whitley Bay is a decent day out and they play fantastic attacking football. Bedlington and Ashington will have decent teams this season, and for those south of the river ditto South Shields and Dunston.

Good player, unfortunately with him being small he just couldn't cope with the physical nature of the Conference. Should score a lot of goals in the Northern League, him and Cogden did well together at Durham in the Unibond League 1st Division.

After our awful start to the New Year, Bogie has loaned a couple of your reserve players:
Quote
Gateshead have today completed the double signing of young Newcastle United pair James Tavernier and Joan Simun Edmundsson on an initial 28 day loan.

Yorkshireman Tavernier is a 19-year-old right back or central defender while Edmundsson, also 19, is a full Faroe Islands international.

Both will make their Blue Square Bet Premier debut at home to Kidderminster Harriers on Saturday alongside Sunderland loanee Michael Liddle.

Are they any good? We need something to rescue us at the minute.

Cheers for them btw, first loan since Harper last time we were a Conference club.

I've not seen as much of Edmundsson but he's rated fairly well, should hopefully be able to bag a few goals for ya, although I'm sure someone else could let you know more about him.

A shameless plug whilst you're all in a good mood...

The FA Cup proper starts next Saturday with the 1st Round seeing Gateshead away at Notts County.

If anyone fancies coming, Gateshead Supporters Club are running buses to the match, leaving from Gateshead Civic Centre at 9:30am - www.GatesheadFCSupportersClub.org.uk (http://www.gatesheadfcsupportersclub.org.uk/away-travel/histon-awaybsbptuesday28thseptember)

If Notts County have already beaten the region's second club they shouldn't have too much bother beating that rabble down the road tomorrow.

This definately. Good chance for two young lads to play regular competitive football which isnt too far from League 2 standard overall(aside from the top few teams) and hopefully help them progress via loans up to a level to benefit us.

The three loan signings (Including left-back Michael Liddle on-loan from Sunderland) did well on Saturday. Both full-backs were good, Tavernier looked strong, composed on the ball and good at going forward.

Edmundsson looks like he has a load of skill, and caused Kidderminster a lot of problems. He was played on the left wing (not sure if he's better suited to up front?) and did well, setting up a few opportunities.

Maybe he'll be played up front next Saturday when we play at home to either delightful Hayes & Yeading in the league or Hampton & Richmond in the FA Trophy (if we get through Tuesday's trophy replay).

The highlights of Saturday's match are on Gateshead's website (http://www.gateshead-fc.com/3162/gfctv-gateshead-2-2-kidderminster-harriers).

Its where he's played most of his career, Newcastle seem keen to mould him into a LM though. Very tidy on the ball, though seems a bit prone to hold on it a bit too long. Not sure if that's due to people not supporting him though, in the games I've seen.

He did hold onto it a few times too long, and doesn't seem like an old fashioned winger who'll stick to the touch line and deliver a cross. That's why I wonder if he'd be more suited to playing up front, a bit like Peter Winn (sorry for mentioning his name) was for us last season. Played left wing, but had been converted there from being a striker and didn't deliver much ammo.

Another of our ex-Newcastle youngsters James Marwood had his best game in a Heed shirt on Saturday. Came off the bench and put the cross in for the equaliser. He has bags of potential, very quick and scares defenders but unfortunately (until Saturday) had zero end product. Hopefully he can carry on from there.

We're playing Barrow at home tonight in the league. After winning 6-0 on Saturday, hopefully we can get some league form back. Tavernier has looked a class act and Edmundsson got on the score sheet on Saturday.

Kick-off tonight is 7:45pm at Gateshead Stadium, if anyone wants to see the two loanees in action.

I'm not really sure tbh. The rules surrounding loans seem bizarre to me especially with these emergency loans where you can loan anyone for a 28 day period outside the windows, with them turning a blind eye to it not really being an emergency. But a player can only be emergency loaned 2 or 3 times/months or something along those lines.

We were after a Boro player on-loan, but nothing has emerged there so far. We desperately need a goal scorer to fire us up the league, we have Jon Shaw who's your target man 10 to 15 goals a season type player, we just need to find the little man style goalscorer to play alongside him. However apart from loans, there's not a lot out there and you have rich teams such as Crawley, Luton & Fleetwood signing up every possible striker/good player just to stop their promotion rivals doing so. All three must have about 5 or 6 quality strikers on the books.

I don't envy Ian Bogie's task in the transfer market, but he needs to pull a rabbit out of a hat from somewhere if we're to avoid looking nervously over our shoulder again.

Only two matches, so maybe a little early to judge but:

He's played left wing in both matches. Doesn't look like a traditional winger to me (not much in the way of crossing), very comfortable on the ball, cuts inside a lot and looks to link up. Maybe slightly overdoes it at times, hanging onto the ball too long but looks dangerous and worries the opposition.

I'd be interested to see him upfront alongside Jon Shaw to see if he's got any pace when put in behind the defenders, but young Nathan Fisher has hit 2 goals in the last 2 games up there and deserves a starting place.

Sounds like you're doing a bit like what Cardiff are doing with Bellamy and playing him out wide to try and get something out of him creatively even if it's not his natural position. I've seem him play twice on Sky for the Faroes and both times he started lone striker, but swapped into second striker at some points and against Northern Ireland ended up as a LW by the end.

Maybe he just doesn't really know what his best position is yet himself.

Post by: Heed on Tuesday 8 February 2011, 02:31:15 pm
Edmundsson was rumoured to be not too happy at playing on the left wing instead of up front. He's one of those players that looks disinterested at times on the pitch, but then produces a great bit of skill, but then also goes back into his shell.

Even played out of position I would've expected him to rip conference defences to bits (if he was premier league quality). He has the skill, but imo needs to get the desire like Tavernier has (who's been outstanding) to make it. Good luck to the lad though, shame we didn't get to see what he could offer played up front.

Not sure how many we'll take through to Blyth, you can never tell with Gateshead fans. We took 415 to Darlington earlier in the season, and about 350-400 to Blyth last time we played them a couple of seasons back.

It has to be the biggest Tyne-Blyth derby there's ever been. One North-East team will be in a 2 legged semi-final for a place at Wembley, I just hope it's us!

Glad to hear that about Tav, like. I've been impressed every time I've seen him play, got the potential to be a decent player imo.

I've not seen so much of Edmundsson, but what you've said seems to be similar to the comments of another member on here (OCK I think), in that he wants to play up top more than out wide, and can go missing for large periods of games. Like you said, you'd have expected him to be able to make quite a large, and consistent, contribution in the conference.

That derby should be good against Blyth. How many will Gateshead be expecting to take through.
It's a shame it clashes with a Toon home game, or i might have fancied it. The vase tie between Dunston and Whitley falls on the day of a home game too. I wonder if it would be worth re-scheduling the non-league ties. 12 o'clock kick off or maybe a Sunday.

The first part of the Gateshead v Darlington trilogy takes place tomorrow night (Tuesday 8th March) at Gateshead Stadium, kick-off 7:45pm.

Both teams are in good form, last month Gateshead won 7 matches from 7 played and Darlington have now gone unbeaten in their last 8 games. Both have a realistic chance with games in hand to push on for the play-offs if they win this match.

Gateshead 2-2 Darlo

Gateshead 2-0 down at half time , came out 2nd half and battered darlo.

Equalised on 92nd minute.

Makes for a tasty semi final on Saturday down at Darlington.

After a poor second half down there, Gateshead go into tomorrow's FA Trophy semi-final 2nd Leg a goal behind. If you're not heading down to Stoke tomorrow, please consider coming across to the International Stadium to get behind Tyneside's other black n whites. Wembley awaits the winners.

Neil's friend is right. Bit of a turgid affair with lots of hoofball. Darlington did their best to disrupt any kind of football on the ground they never looked like scoring or really tried.

Chants of towns of peedo's rang round and at full-time Darlo invaded the pitch like a Danny Dyer tribute act.

Absolutely gutted, a massive opportunity missed.

Darlington were never gonna let us play football, and just came to spoil and attempt to hit on the break. Fair play to them, but we lost it in that crazy last half hour down their place last week.

Still, little old Gateshead have come a long way in the last 3 years and have a bright future ahead.

He's been excellent, we'll be very sad to lose him next month when his loan's up.

He caused Darlington so many problems last week, they detailed their striker Liam Hatch to man mark him as soon as they lost possession today. He's a modern fullback who's great going forward, and is strong defensively. Occasionally overdoes it and gives the ball away, but he's young and that should come with time and experience.

b) Adam Rundle looked quality, couldn't understand it when he came off because he seemed to be the one who created problems down the left for Gateshead.

If anyone fancies a match on Tuesday night, admission for tomorrow night's match - Gateshead v Eastbourne Borough has been reduced to £5.
 
Quote
In recognition of the large number of home games in April, and the excellent support this season, admission prices have been slashed for Tuesday's (12th April, 7:45pm) Blue Square Bet Premier game against Eastbourne Borough.

As a one-off gesture the directors have decided to make entry for the game against Eastbourne just £5 across the board, under 16s when accompanied by a paying adult allowed free entry as usual.

Adults: £5

Concessions: £5

Under 16s: free with paying adult.

Kick-off on Tuesday is 7:45pm and chairman Graham Wood hopes many people will take up the generous offer while acknowledging the valued support of the regular fans.

If anyone fancies a match on Saturday, Gateshead conclude our second season back in the Conference with a home game against Newport County. Kick-off is at 5:15pm, due to TV all conference matches must start on the final day at the same time (Tamworth v Forest Green Rovers - relegation battle being live on satellite channel Premier Sports TV).

Not a bad season, it may've tailed away a bit towards the end but comfortably finishing mid-table, making the FA Cup 1st round and FA Trophy Semi-Final shows progress. Hopefully if the manager can add 4 or 5 quality players for next season we can kick-on towards the play-offs.

My Dad used to take us to watch the youth team if he had the Saturday off work and I remember seeing him about half a dozen times. I must admit compared to Shola who had played a few years prior he never looked that special tbh.

He's the best target man I've seen at semi-pro level. If he got more service he'd be a machine. Doesn't lose a header, doesn't miss a pen, brilliant first touch. :thup:

At the end of last season we released: Andy Ferrell (MID), Craig Nelthorpe (LW), Paul Heckinbottom (LB), Carl Jones (CD), Steven Baptist (CM), Jonny Allan (FWD), Richard Offiong (FWD), with Ashley Winn (MID) having been transfer listed.

Ian Bogie has so far signed:

Yemi Odubade (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yemi_Odubade) (FWD) - Nigerian striker from Stevenage, was their leading scorer in their promotion campaign.
Eddie Odhiambo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eddie_Odhiambo) (RB) - Tanzanian defender who was with Stevenage and signed from Newport County.
Sam Rents (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Rents) (LB) - Defender from Crawley, was expected to start last season at Crawley as 1st choice left-back but smashed his cheek bone in pre-season. They then exercised their financial clout.
Micky Cummins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Cummins) (MID) - Experienced midfielder signed from Grimsby Town.

We made a failed bid for ex-Hartlepool midfielder Tommy Miller who signed for Huddersfield, so probably need to add another central midfielder, central defender and left winger to the squad for hopefully an attempt on the play-offs.

This season we've moved training base from the back pitches at the International Stadium to the new Russell Foster Football Centre in Durham. The back pitches were getting ruined from over use with Gateshead College's Football Academy also using them.

So the Gateshead squad so far looks like:

1. Tim Deasy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Deasy) (GK) - Former Stockport, Macclesfield and Barrow keeper.
2. Eddie Odhiambo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eddie_Odhiambo) (RB) - Tanzanian defender who was with Stevenage and signed from Newport County.
3. Sam Rents (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Rents) (LB) - Ex-Brighton left back from Crawley.
4. Kris Gate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kris_Gate) (MID) - Former Newcastle youth teamer
5. James Curtis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Curtis_(footballer)) (DEF) - Been at the club for nearly 10 years and still arguably looks the best player.
6. Ben Clark (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Clark_(footballer)) (DEF) - Former Hartlepool and Sunderland defender, and club captain.
7. Martin Brittain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Brittain) (RW) - Ex-Newcastle, Yeovil & Kidderminster. Lead the Conference in assists last season.
8. Phil Turnbull (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Turnbull_(footballer)) (MID) - Him and Gatey have been our leading midfield pair for the last 3 seasons. On his day one of the best passers in the league. Ex-Hartlepool.
9. Jon Shaw (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Shaw) (FWD) - Former Sheff Wed striker signed from Mansfield. Formed a nice double act with Brittain. Brittain cross, Shaw headed goal.
10. Yemi Odubade (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yemi_Odubade) (FWD) - Nigerian striker from Stevenage. Oba Martins type, hopefully with a better 1st touch though.
11. Micky Cummins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Cummins) (MID) - Experienced midfielder signed from Grimsby Town.
12. Nathan Fisher (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathan_Fisher_(footballer)) (FWD) - Ex-Boro youth, found his feet in the 2nd half of last season with some explosive performances.
13. Paul Farman (GK) - Former Newcastle youth teamer.
14. Craig Baxter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_Baxter) (RB) - Into his 5th season at the club. Attacking right-back, ex-Newcastl youth.
15. Gary Mulligan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Mulligan) (FWD) - Irish, old fashioned type forward. Started out at Wolves, more recently with Gillingham and Northampton.
16. Josh Gillies (RW/LW) - Young winger who came through Gateshead College's Football Academy, featured for Whitley Bay in their vase final.
17. James Marwood (RW) - Former Newcastle youth, lightening quick but needs to develop and end product.



Hopefully it'll be an exciting season ahead.

Can't see that happening, his attitude was the other end of the spectrum from Tav. I guess playing International football at a young age has possibly done that to him.

What do you reckon Gateshead could do? Play off challenge?

The Conference seems to get tougher every year. With Stockport and Lincoln joining the likes of Luton, Wrexham, York, Darlington etc, the type of money chucked about to try and get out is probably higher than League 2. Fleetwood (who're backed by some millionaire gas company owner) appear to be doing a Crawley Town and are chucking big money about on the best Conference Level players.

I still think it's realistic with 2 or 3 quality additions that we could push up towards the play-offs. York and Darlington fell just short last year and we were in and around them until our players went on early holiday after missing out on the FA Trophy final at Wembley. It'll be a big season for Ian Bogie, when we're firing, we play some of the best passing football in this league (e.g. beating Luton 1-0 at home and Wrexham 7-2 away), but it was when 2 or 3 key players were missing that we fell below par. Hopefully a stronger squad with less passengers will see us kick on.

Allan was permacrocked for us last season. Seemed to get injured in a light wind, so can't really judge how good he is.


Huddersfield won 1-0, but I thought we did ok. Should've equalised in the 1st half when Odubade had his shot saved from close in. Turned into a bit of a typical pre-season affair second half, but it's early days.

It would appear Newcastle are sending over a stronger than expected side tomorrow night. Should be a tough test, we held Sunderland reserves 0-0 on Saturday, but the Newcastle squad looks stronger.

NUFC: 1. Steve Harper, 2. Ryan Taylor, 3. James Tavernier, 4. Mehdi Abeid, 5. Mike Williamson, 6. Paul Dummett, 7. Michael Richardson, 8. Alan Smith, 9. Nile Ranger, 10. Haris Vuckic, 11. Sammy Ameobi
12. Fraser Forster (GK), 13, Jeff Henderson, 14. Ryan Donaldson, 15. Phil Airey, 16. Greg McDermott, 17. Yven Moyo, 18. Patrick Nzuzi

If anyone's at a loose end Tuesday night and fancies some football, Gateshead are playing York in a top(ish) of the table clash at the International Stadium (7:45pm).

They play an expansive/attacking style of football similar to ours, so it'll be an interesting game and a test of how just far we've come. They usually bring about 500 fans up for the match too, so should be a good atmosphere.

If you're at a loose end on Tuesday night, then a decent game is in prospect at the International Stadium in the Conference, where in-form Gateshead take on a York City side who are themselves enjoying a decent season.

Ian Bogie's lads have won seven and drawn two of their eleven league games this season and sit joint top of the table, behind Wrexham on goal difference.

They include on-loan Magpies goalkeeper Jak Alnwick (expected to be on the bench as cover), plus SJP old boy Kris Gate, who has three goals to his name so far. 

The Minstermen are just three points behind in fifth and are captained by former Newcastle reserve midfielder Paddy McLaughlin.

Admission is £14 adults, £9 concessions and U16s £2 and kickoff is at 7.45pm.   

For non-league football? :kasper:

We face Wrexham at home tonight (7:45pm) in a top of the table clash.

We lost both centre-backs (Curtis & Clark) on Saturday through injury, and had 2 points stolen by the referee when he decided a penalty needed retaking because Farman was an inch off his line. Wrexham have a couple suspended and injured.

Fair enough, we hear that one a lot. But bottom line is modern football is a rip off. We're one of the cheapest in the Conference, with places like Luton, Darlington, Lincoln amongst others charging £18 on the day.

Shocking defensive display from us last night.

What sort of crowd do the others get though? Fair enough if they all got the same as Gateshead but if its much more then theres a justification that the price/demand is fair enough. Havent seen Heeds attendances this season mind but it was usually about 500 wasnt it in previous years?

We're averaging 1018 at the minute.

Of the £18 chargers, Luton are averaging 5943, Grimsby 3046, Lincoln 2141, Darlington 1909.

I personally think a lot of it has to do with how non-league clubs are viewed in the north-east. It's different in other areas of the country, but I'd say your general person on the street doesn't really understand the difference between the level say Whitley/Ashington/Bedlington etc play (Northern League) and Gateshead play (They'd have to get promoted 4 times to play in the Conference, the same as Gateshead would to play Newcastle & Sunderland in the Premier League), it's all just non-league to them.

Hopefully with Gateshead doing well over the next few years, and the local media starting to pay more attention, things will change on that front for us.

Must admit i'd go to watch Gateshead when NUFC aren't playing if the prices were reasonable. Me and the missus often take in a local game, usually at our local team, Newcastle Benfield where it costs a fiver to get in, or North Shields where it costs £4 or £2 if you show a NUFC season ticket at the turnstile, or at Whitley Bay, who have a cracking side and they charge £6.

If we went to watch Gateshead it would cost us £28 just to get in and by the time you factor in travelling costs a couple of pints and a burger or pie we've spent the best part of £50 to watch a Conference match, as opposed to £20 for admission, beers, food, programme and raffle tickets at a Northern League game.

Obviously i'm aware that running costs at Gateshead are massive in comparison to any NL club and that's why they have to charge what they do but it will always be difficult to attract the floating fan who isn't really a Gateshead supporter but who just likes to watch grass roots football at those prices.

Blyth Spartans started charging a tenner a couple of seasons ago and lost around 200 fans (or 33% of their average gate) overnight. Must be a struggle for clubs to get the balance right.

Best of luck to Gateshead, hopefully last night was just a blip and they can get themselves back on track.

The charges at Blyth have gone up gradually over the seasons, they didn't just whack it up from six quid to a tenner overnight. I think it might have gone from £7 to £9 for the first season in the Conference North, then another £1 after that. I think there is a mental barrier about the round ten- it was certainly robustly debated at the time- but with an underlying hardcore of around 400 at Blyth it probably worked out when it came to the bottom line.

A lot of local floaters headed down to Whitley Bay because they were hammering Twobob Welfare week-in, week-out. I used to see a lot of them at Bedlington in the late 90s. They'll go where there are lots of goals for a few quid, the actual level of football is a secondary concern.

£14 is not unreasonable for Gateshead to charge at all, it's much better value for money than the Premier League.

Whitley Bay were one of the lowest scorers in the league at home last season with 29 goals from 21 games which sort of blows your theory out the water a bit and Blyth tried to sign half of Whitley Bays team in the summer is because they must have felt their players were good enough to play in the Blue Square North. In the end Blyth lost possibly their best player to Whitley Bay in Robbie Dale. There's a lot of quality sides in that league, yes there's some dross like Tow Law and Stokesley but in the main the standard is very good, probably the best Step 5 league in the country hence the reason Whitley have won the Vase 3 years in a row but not the league. For between £4-£6 to get in it's great value for money.

No it doesn't blow my theory out of the water.  Whitley have enjoyed big crowds over the last few years where they have been at the top end of the NL. There are boatloads of floaters who will go to whoever's on a decent run of form, including Blyth. You watch Bedlington's gates this season go up, and that won't just be people trying to get a tan off the new scoreboard.

Yes, Cuggy tried to sign 5 or 6 players from Whitley in the summer, but I think that says more about the manager's naivety at that level- only young Mason gets a look in. Dale is a quality player, shouldn't have released him, he loved it at Blyth and the fans loved him.

No Toon game that day either. Might be as good a game to take in as any. I wonder if they'll knock a few quid off the entry charge considering Hebburn are about 6 divisions lower? Should imagine Gateshead season tickets won't be valid either.

Gateshead have reduced admission prices for the FA Cup 4th qualifying round tie against Hebburn Town on Saturday week, October 29th.

The price of an adult ticket has been cut from £14 to £10 and a concessionary ticket from £9 to £5.

Youngsters under the age of 16 will, as usual, gain admission for just £2.

Both Alnwick & Henderson played the full 90 minutes for us on Saturday as we thankfully got back to winning ways at Telford United. Alnwick made a couple of good saves and looked composed with his handling, and Henderson was solid at the back alongside James Curtis.

Next up is the FA Cup 4th Round Qualifier at home to Hebburn on Saturday, hopefully we don't take them lightly.

If anyone wants to come to the Blyth match next Saturday, the tickets go on general sale at Gateshead Stadium's ticket office (next to the main entrance) on Monday 7th Nov from 5pm to 8pm.
Quote
Tickets for the FA Cup 1st round tie at Blyth Spartans will go on general sale between 5:00pm and 8:00pm on Monday 7th November from the Ticket Office.

Any remaining tickets will be sold from the same location between 11:00am and 2:00pm and 5:00pm and 8:00pm on Tuesday.



Blyth Spartans have announced that the FA Cup 1st round tie against Gateshead on Saturday 12th November will be an all ticket game.

As in last season's FA Trophy quarter-final clash between the two clubs at Croft Park Gateshead supporters have been allocated the Plessey Road End of the ground. This is a covered terrace.

Ticket prices are priced £12 adult and £6 concessions.

Equally from the Blyth site. Anyone going as a neutral onlooker will probably be better off with a home ticket as you'll be able to get a half time pint.

Quote
The club confirms the following re ticket allocation for our 1st Round FA Cup tie against Gateshead FC at Croft Park on Saturday 12th November. Times, dates and purchase venues are as per previous communication on this site.

1/ Ground Tickets, max 5 per person. (£12 full - £6 concession)
2/ Port of Blyth Stand, 1 per person. (£2 all classes)

Note: Students are classed as concessions, but must produce a valid ticket and suitable ID on match day.

THE MATCH WILL BE ALL TICKET and supporters will be SEGREGATED

Tickets will be on sale INSIDE the ground at the home game against Colwyn Bay on Saturday 5th November from 1.45 - 2.45 and from 5.00 - 5.30

Any remaining tickets will be on sale at the Social Club on Sunday 6th November from 7.00pm - 8.00pm
and Wednesday 9th November 7.00pm - 9.00pm (social club)

Subject to the quantity remaining there may be some on sale in the Social Club on Saturday 12th November from 11.30am - 1pm

Big gulf between the sides these days with Gateshead furnished with a full-time squad and Blyth struggling this year with a rookie management team. Still, Blyth were pretty poor in the league when Shrewsbury and Bournemouth were dispatched a few years ago so who knows what may happen.

Sned- I think the Police would be less worried about Blyth or Gateshead fans and more worried about opportunistic troublemakers who often just rock up on the day- hence the game being all-ticket. Sensible move all round, even though it may well have shaved a few off the gate.

The Shaw/Brittain combo over the last 2 years has been brilliant for us. Brits has the best crossing ability of anyone in non-league and Shaw is an old fashioned style centre forward who's great in the box (especially with his head).

We've signed Phil Airey on-loan from you for a month, goes straight into the squad for tomorrow's home match with Lincoln City. Seen him a couple of times for Newcastle reserves, looked promising, so should hopefully cover well up front with the injuries we have to Shaw, Hatch & Fisher.

Gateshead have today signed Newcastle United striker Phil Airey on a one month loan.

The 20-year-old joined Hibernian on loan earlier in the season but had to return to his native Tyneside due to injury after just one appearance.

A bit random, but do you do long term loans? I understand this one is to cover injuries, but off the top of my head you appear to have taken on quite a few Toon youngsters yet I think the longest has been for 3 months.

They're "emergency loans", 1 month at a time with a maximum of 3 months allowed. I guess the flexibility is good for both clubs, especially with Airey being in his last 6 months of his deal? Maybe Newcastle wan't him to go out for 1 month, get some form, then go to a league club to see if he's worth a new deal? From our point of view, I think it's mainly down to cover for injuries. Whatever the reasons, if he scores goals whilst on loan it's win-win for both clubs.

What's the craic with the stadium Heed?

Wasn't it supposed to be ready for the start of 2012/2013 season?

It was, but now is planned for the start of the season after next (2013/14). Basically the design is with sustainability in mind, in that the main stand has a load of office space in it, and the long term rent from that office space will help partially fund the club each season.

(http://www.gateshead-fc.com/content/Image/stadium/New_Stadium_2.jpg) (http://www.gateshead-fc.com/new-stadium)
http://www.gateshead-fc.com/new-stadium (http://www.gateshead-fc.com/new-stadium)

The delay is because it took the club a while to get a good tenant in place for the office space who'd take it on a long contract (something like 20 years I'd guess), the tenant they had lined up was the NHS Primary Care Trust, then of course the recession and the Tory Government came in and they scrapped the PCTs, so it pretty much scuppered that and was back to square one looking for a long term tenant.

The latest news on it is that club have now found a new tenant and are in the process of getting organised with them. So in the next 2-3 months they should be in place to go forward with it, fingers crossed.

Newcastle United FC and Gateshead FC Agree Fans Partnership

Newcastle United have cemented their close relationship with neighbours Gateshead Football Club after agreeing a partnership which will make football even more affordable for fans across Tyneside.

The clubs have teamed up to offer all Newcastle United members discounted entry to all of the Heed's home Football Conference Premier League fixtures during the 2013/14 season, with an adult and junior able to see 90 minutes of action for just £11 combined per match.

On presenting a valid Newcastle United season ticket or membership card, Toon fans will be able to benefit from entry priced at just £9 for adults – a saving of £5 – while under-16s can already gain access for only £2 when accompanied by an adult.

As part of the Conference Premier, the fifth tier of English football, Gateshead will be looking to mount a serious promotion push during the 2013/14 campaign but will face the challenge of a number of notable ex-Football League sides.

Luton Town, Hereford United, Wrexham and Cambridge United will all be travelling to Gateshead International Stadium this season, with the prize of a return to the Football League promising some entertaining clashes.

John Irving, financial director at Newcastle United, said: "We are delighted to offer our support to Gateshead. As well as being our closest neighbours, the clubs share a lot in common, particularly fans who would love to see both Tyneside clubs succeed.

"Our partnership will give fans and their families even more affordable access to a high standard of football close to home so we hope as many people as possible can make it along to watch both clubs throughout next season any beyond."

In addition to their close proximity, the clubs have a number of other close links, with current Newcastle assistant manager John Carver making in excess of 100 league appearances for Gateshead as a player and a number of current Magpies players, including Paul Dummett and James Tavernier, enjoying loan spells for the Conference club.

And with Gateshead playing their home games just three miles from St. James' Park on the opposite side of the River Tyne, the Heed are now encouraging Toon fans to get behind their other local side and swell the numbers at the Conference Premier's largest stadium.

Gateshead vice chairman, Brian Waites – the scheme's originator – said: "The cooperation and relationship between the clubs has flourished in recent years with the realisation that there are mutual benefits to be gained from working together.

"Both clubs are committed to playing an important role in the community and this initiative is one more step in creating a sense of togetherness among people of Tyneside. As a lifelong fan of both clubs I am delighted to see this initiative get underway."

For more information or to secure your Newcastle United membership, please visit www.nufc.co.uk/members. Season tickets also remain available at St. James' Park by calling 0844 372 1892 or visiting www.nufc.co.uk/tickets

Great appointment.


Heard they've had over 50 applications for the manager's role, including Dean Saunders and Terry Burton (ex-Wimbledon). Hope they don't go for another local manager with no reputation, they need someone who can attract players from other areas, reckon Saunders would be able to do that.
they need that new ground. mself and a good few mates (and I'll bet thats repeated through a few newcastle/sunderland fans) would be very tempted to go to gateshead but watching football at the international stadium is a sole destroying experience.

Why's it so rubbish, out of interest?

Quite some distance from the action due to the running track and unless it's a relatively big game everyone's in the Tyne & Wear Stand, so it just looks and feels empty. That said, I went to the game against Tamworth when they got promoted back to the Conference and ended up behind one of the goals and I'd have killed to be in the Tyne & Wear Stand. They'd left the bloody net up from the hammer throwing. I could barely see a thing.

I was going to go to Gateshead this weekend with there being no Premier League football on but the ground is putting me off. I might head to Birtley instead.

The view's actually ok if you sit at the top/near the top of the Tyne and Wear stand, lower down and the athletics track plays a big part. It's certainly not perfect but closer than from level 7 at St James'.

If you're at a loose end on Saturday, it's National Non-League Day (sounds a bit cheesy) and we're at home to Hereford United. Hopefully should be a good match and really kick start the season now we have a decent manager in (It's also £5 off the price of an adult ticket for NUFC season ticket holders).

Would be a good idea if they moved to a Friday as I would probably go along to a few, as it stands going to our game one Sat and theirs next Sat won't make my wife happy.

Being from Gateshead I would love them to get into the leagues, My first club has always been nufc but always look for their results and go to a few games where I can. Be good if they get their new stadium as international is a total dump

Tell you what, as protest forms go that's the best idea I've seen yet. I know it'd cost an extra £15 or whatever but if those who are protesting add 4-5000 to Gateshead's attendance on a week there's a Newcastle home match seeing the crowd drop to around 44k, that's some message.

Imagine if our crowd dropped significantly and all of a sudden non-league crowds were massively up one week :) - would be fantastic and your right it would send a hell of a message, the unfortunate thing with any form of protest is that we don't have anywhere near enough people that would be interested in the protest to make a difference. It is required on a mass scale and at least a hit of around 5-10k on the crowd for them to take notice.

Recent news on SSC is that they are pulling out of the site next to the Civic centre, the reason cited is 'negative reactions by residents'. They are on the look our for a new location, this is rumoured to be somewhere in the vast open land just off the Felling bypass.

I honestly think 10k is unrealistic, even with a disgruntled NUFC fan base and Gateshead in the football league. It would be nice if they became a community club, not necessarily ran by the community but have facilities at the stadium that the community can use outside of football matches, like how they wanted an NHS centre in the previous planned stadium.

Bodes well for if they get through next week.

Was just looking at the match report from the last time they got to the Second Round...looks like it was Jak Alnwick that cost them a trip to Goodison. :lol:

Gateshead keeper Jak Alnwick was at fault for both goals as Tamworth beat their Blue Square Bet Premier rivals.
Francino Francis put the Lambs ahead from two yards after Alnwick, on loan from Newcastle, dropped a corner.
The Heed had Chris Carruthers sent off for a foul on Danny Mills but Alnwick saved Kieron St Aimie's penalty.
Nathan Fisher swivelled and finished to make it 1-1 but Alnwick dropped another corner in the last minute and Kyle Patterson was the Lambs' hero.

As mentioned above, the FA Cup 1st Round Replay at home to Oxford on Wednesday night is only £5 to get in if you buy your ticket before 7pm on Tuesday, hopefully there'll be a canny crowd:

Quote
Oxford Cup Tickets A Fiver!

Tickets for next Wednesday's big FA Cup 1st round replay against Oxford United have been slashed to just £5 for advance sales.

Supporters can get their tickets for £5 if purchased before 7pm on Tuesday 19th November, the day before the game.

This discount applies to adults, concessions and students. Under 16's pay a nominal £2 as normal.

Tickets can be purchased on-line via the Club's website - Click here to purchase online... (http://www.gateshead-fc.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=59&product_id=136)

They can be bought from the following times at the International Stadium:

1. Friday 15th November: 6pm – 8pm (café / bar area)

2. Saturday 16th November: 12:00pm – 2:30pm and 5-5:30pm (Ticket Office)
(before and after the Salisbury game)

They can be bought from the Club Office upstairs on the concourse on these days:

3. Monday 18th November: 9am – 6:30pm (Club office)

4.Tuesday 19th November: 9am - 7pm (Club Office)

Normal prices; £14, £9, £7, and £2, will apply at the turnstiles on the day of the game from 6:45pm.

Turnstiles at both ends of the Tyne & Wear stand will be open with Oxford United fans housed in the north end, entry through turnstile one.

The replay against Oxford has become a £90,000 game with the news that the 2nd round tie; Wrexham v Gateshead / Oxford United will also be televised by BT Sport.

This will be worth £72,000 in broadcast fees to both clubs with £18,000 from the FA Cup prize fund also going to the winners of Wednesday's tie on Tyneside.

No club deserves a "canny crowd" more than the Heed. Just seems like a great club and great bunch of people from the chairman down to the fans.

Played some good stuff Gateshead last night but lacked that little bit of quality in the final 3rd. They never deserved to get beat and I thought at the game the penalty decision was harsh. Still haven't seen the replay but I've been told it was a poor decision. The referee gave every 50/50 to Oxford all night so it wasn't a surprise.

Oh. Guess you give up watching us after least season then because none of what you have stated is true to this season. Suddenly we have defensive wingers because they track back well? Long balls? We don't play many of those anymore compared to what we did. Static players? Think you'll find our side is now one of the most hard working in the league and not many of them are static.

Didn't realise Gateshead were now 4th in the Conference. Since I'm finished with NUFC, certainly for this season and probably until Ashley, Kinnear and Pardew are gone I might start taking in a few of their matches. A Promotion challenge with something actually riding on their remaining fixtures sounds a lot more appealing than what's on offer at SJP under the current regime.

The heed are probably going to make the playoffs but I don't think they will win it, if they do it'll be massive for them. I hope if they do finally make back to the league they will finally sort out their stadium situation because the International Stadium is not going to cut it for them and will not attract the kind of crowds they are hoping for. iirc, they only average about 600 fans per game which is pretty poor to say the least but hopefully if they get into their own stadium preferably on prince consort road they will attract bigger crowds.

It probably is but I have a small glimmer of hope they will make that site work because that site is perfect. It's close to the city centre and easily walkable. Plus if the heed ever make themselves into say a championship level club it'd be nice to just see St. James and their stadium so close. (I know this is border lining on football fan fiction...sorry.)

The difference in TV money seems big proportionately but TV money isn't the thing for clubs at that level. They can get more in 1 FA Cup game than they can in a season of TV rights regardless of L2 or Conf.

The cost of competing in the FL for Gateshead is too much of a stretch for them long term without a better fanbase to fall back on. They are already bankrolled to offset having some of the lowest attendances in the Conf.

I reckon if they move grounds and play on weekends when Newcastle aren't at home they could realistically get 3k plus for a home game....

I'd like to see them get promoted like......

Would be canny for us to work with them even more and have a stream of decent kids on loan and prices to entice NUFC fans there.  Could be a great partnership if they went up

Exactly. There'd have to be something in it for MA, no way would he do it purely to help them out.

What's happening about the new ground does anyone know? Only good thing in current set up is the hospitality package. 40 quid includes a match ticket, 3 course meal and free bar for two hours before game and an hour afterwards :)

Not sure why I've never done this :lol:

That would be the biggest message to Ashley yet imo. If there was 44k at SJP & 3-4000 at Gateshead on the same afternoon, he'd start to worry. Think it's the best idea for a form of protest I've seen. Only worry is, I hope the Gateshead game didn't turn into an "Ashley out" thing and Gateshead actually got the support rather than it being a sideshow.

5 vs 2 is a week on Wed.
4 vs 3 is a week on Thurs (hopefully Heed get thus as I wouldn't mind seeing Chelsea vs Atletico, ha)

Second legs are both a week on Sunday.

A win will do, a point will do, a loss will do if Braintree don't win. A 1 goal defeat will do if Braintree only win by 1. A 3 goal swing in a Heed loss and Braintree win will see Heed out. Despite Cambridge guaranteed 2nd and lost 3 on the spin, still a bit of work to do as Grimsby might rest a few against Braintree.

Apparently a spat between a mackem and a Mag.

I went yesterday, 40 quid for a ticket, 3 course meal, half-time coffee and biccies and all you can drink. I had 6 pints and 3 double whiskeys, god knows what the others had. After full-time we met the owner, manager and some of the players. The last time I had such a memorable day at a game was when we beat the mackems 5-1. Gateshead put the Toon to shame on and off the pitch. That's me hooked now, they are now my team. We were chanting we are from Newcastle, super super Newcastle, but we quite like the 'Heed. Great atmosphere and a really enjoyable match, they play better football than Newcastle. A trip to Wembley beckons, if so we are all going full corporate the full hog. Our company even got a mention on radio Newcastle. Jim Montgomery was there, a true gentleman and absolute legend.

Glad you enjoyed your day. Being a Blyth sympathizer, I'm not sure I could bring myself to go and watch Gateshead - but gotta give them credit where it's due. Graham Wood has put his money where is mouth is and is getting the club the recognition it deserves. Just a pity that someone similar wouldn't do the same at Croft Park, because the potential for a Football League club is there too, IMO.

We've done the hospitality thing three times this season, thoroughly enjoyable and well worth 40 quid...

We're doing it again next Sunday as well.... given what I spend when I go to our games its better value and might even do the whole of next season irrespective of what league they're in. It would be great if a large scale group of Newcastle season ticket holders did it for one game next season, sold out the stadium and left 10 thousand empty seats at St James.... It would certainly make people sit up and think........

Really can't believe how far they've come since I first went to watch them. Me & my dad first took in a game in 2007 when they beat Telford 4-3 in the Unibond and have been regulars over the years since. A new stadium and another couple of bad seasons for the so called bigger teams in the north east and their attendances could easily grow to match or even exceed some of the league clubs. Great club & good luck to them tonight.

Won't be that much bigger mate. Most clubs in L2 (likes of Pompey excepted) will take less than 500 to away games. Some as few as 50. They will always struggle with midweek home games due to the travelling.

You might be right but hope they do OK if they pull it off. Might get a few disgruntled Newcastle fans too.

The majority of conference players are full time but they don't earn much, like £500 p/week or less, and most will only be on one year deal. If they don't get resigned they are off. Also there is f*** all money about in that league or L2, most successful teams have a large fanbase (ex-league teams) or someone putting the cash in. It is hardly the glamorous football life.

Graham Wood has backed Gateshead with money, since their Evo-Stick Premier League days. Think he used to be on the mackems' board. What Goatsheed have in their favor is they do go up, is that a lot of apathetic Mags might decide to switch to following them to reconnect with football. Personally I won't, as I'm a Blyth sympathizer. I think the Heed has got everything in place to make a good go at League 2.

Graham used to be heavily involved down at Hampton & Richmond a few years ago. Put a few bob in there and then sold all his shares (about 35%) to the Supporters trust for £1. Thoroughly good chap and has a decent wedge but he can't finance them forever. They would seriously need to draw in some support and get close to 3k through the gate to make it work.

It will be tough in the final, Cambridge will bring a big following and they are a better side. but Gateshead shouldn't fear anyone. If they keep their pressing and passing game going, showing the work-rate and commitment they have done, they will stand a big chance.

They have a very good 'keeper who comes for everything and usually collects and his distribution is very good too.

In Clarke and Curtis they have a very good centre-back pairing who both like to play the ball out. They are not the quickest, but they read the game well and can mix it physically.

In midfield Chandler is like a little terrier and Oster despite his age and lack of legs, runs things visually and with his range of passing. Marwood is the top scorer and a real threat especially from deep or over the top.

The only problem from what I've seen of their games is they aren't the biggest nor most physical of sides and their full-backs seem like headless chickens at times. They lack a real threat up top too in terms of someone dominating a centre-back or holding the ball up.

They are an honest side though and try to play good football and Mills their manager seems to have what it takes, he has done wonders there with a decent enough side, but with many limitations.

I'm thoroughly enjoying their games, the whole atmosphere, feel and above all else, the actual football. Its a decent standard. They would give NUFC a good game easily.

Magnay has been at left back recently but his natural position is centre half. Probably does look a little lost at times out there. Baxter at right back was there for years before Bogie released him and he went to Bedlington in the Northern League for a bit. I remember watching Gateshead in the Unibond/Evo-Stick and he didn't particularly stand out then but he's always been a trier and puts in 100%. Oster and Chandler are the most important players they have due to the system they play. Oster sits back and sprays the ball out wide and retains possession really well. Although Chandler is seen as a terrier and a bit of spoiler, he's also pivotal going forward as he is the one who breaks forward to support Marwood. I'm not Marwoods biggest fan to be fair, he's very lightweight and doesn't keep the ball very well but he's another trier who'll chase down any ball played into the channels.

I'd just really love to see Gateshead do this. I went to away games about 15 year ago against the likes of Hednesford, Leigh RMI and Altrincham. Even though I was young I remember one year when Keith Fletcher was the main man up front, he played for Gateshead on the Saturday then through the week he flied out to play in a World Cup qualifier for Grenada. Really loved the Heed team back then although I struggle to remember many of them. Adrian Swan in goal is one I remember, Sam Kitchen at Centre Half, Steve Bowey in the middle of the park and Fletcher up front. Great backbone to that side similar to what they have now albeit with a lot more quality.

Magnay was in the Nags Head last night enjoying a few with the fans. Baxter is quick and wholehearted, but he is a headless chicken. I love Chandler as he is literally everywhere, but you are right in that he is more than a spoiler or destroyer, a lot goes through him. Oster is the main man for me, however. Of them all you can tell he was once a Premier League player or an international. He sees things quicker and reacts quicker, his vision at times yesterday and some of the balls he played was sublime. I like the 'keeper the most, of them all he could probably make it beyond this league and perhaps even into league two. His distribution is superb and he comes for everything and more often than not plucks that ball from out of the air/an attacker's head.

It would be great to see them go up, apparently they will make a cool extra 1m on the back of it, although overheads would increase, but not enough to make it an impossible task to stay a league club. What they badly need is a new stadium.

Mills has something about him like, he is tactically astute and has the players playing a progressive, pressing and passing game tied to an amazing level of work-rate and commitment. He's no spring chicken, but he is a step above Gateshead to be honest. If they don't go up, they might struggle to keep a hold of him and a few of their players too.

I'm just a hanger on really, there in some kind of protest against Ashley and Pardew etc. but more the merrier. They have a few hundred hard core 'Heed lads though so yesterday and Wembley is great for them. Hopefully they will make it.

Love the result on Sunday, my mates who still live in the area have told me that both Mackems and Geordies showed up, and no one seemed to have a problem with each other. Funny, that. Regarding the GIS, yes, it has a track but if you look at it and the distances, is it really worse than being up on level 7 and even further away to the pitch then at the GIS? No, and people pay a huge sum of money to watch matches from there. A new stadium is absolutely paramount for the Heed to keep progressing if they do make it back to the league but I think that's more of a medium term thing now. Hopefully they make it to League 2, if not, it's been a great season and hopefully Gary Mills stays and gets them back in the playoffs next season. I reckon he is the only reason that they even made it this far.

Megabus was £18 return when i last checked. Comes back at 10:30pm so can have a few pints before the journey home then sleep it off on the bus. Not good if you're at work Monday morning i suppose but it's an option.

Fantastic support for Gateshead FC from their fans "Extra Heed". Must be great for the Gateshead fans to feel so much part of their club to want to do this.

"Gateshead supporters have rallied around as the club gears up for one of the greatest days in its 84 year history.
The 'Extra Heed' have raised a four figure sum to finance the trip to Wembley for the squad and management.
Members of the 'Extra Heed' donate £10 a month and the money raised this season will pay for a two night stay at the luxurious Sopwell House Hotel in St. Albans and the coach travel to and from London."

Few of my mates (Cheeky b******s) have decided to go to Wembley rather than come to my daughters christening on Sunday, yet they never mentioned their love for Gateshead FC and the potential final prior to the semi, strange. All about priorities I suppose, got a better offer and expect me to be oh ok then I understand I know you have that heed tattoo on your bell end, pathetic :)

I went to Semi and would have went for a trip away but the people now claiming to be heed fans is cringe worthy, just for a trip to Wembley.

I do, tradition though isn't it, strangely enough I probably wouldn't have been p*ssed off with mates if they had actually said before Semi that they would be going, it's more the "Once in a lifetime" thing that get's me when they didn't even know when the play-off final was and had been to 2 Gateshead matches all season.

Good luck to them tomorrow. Would probably have went down to support them but was put off by the ridiculous ticket prices. As far as I can remember I've only ever been to see them play once, against Barnet and Barry Fry was the Barnet manager then so that shows how long ago that was, but if they manage to get into the football league I'll make the effort to go and support them saying how I won't be darkening the doors at SJP in the foreseeable future.

It would make sense. If they go up there will be some interesting games at Gateshead. Relatively local games against Hartlepool, York and Carlisle as well as some big clubs for that level of football including Luton, Tranmere and Portsmouth.

Heed have been the better team but their keeper has had absolutely nothing to do.

Get the feeling Cambridge will go up a gear or two in the second half, and might be better at creating clear-ish chances. Gateshead have looked impressively composed on the ball but not getting any sort of penetration. Wa-hey.

First half did it for them IMO. Had the better of Cambridge but couldn't produce a telling final through ball, cross or even shot to seriously test their keeper. Sort of inevitable that Cambridge would strike first. Showed a lot of character to rally at the end but gave themselves too much to do.

Think Gateshead played the better football today, and also pretty much contained Cambridge completely. Just lacked enough fret and looked a bit shakey on crosses. Very little between the teams.

Felt really sorry for the big lad at the back who headed a great chance wide at end, he looked absolutely gutted.

Also think that if the Cambridge lad hadn't got injured at that moment then Gateshead might have got a second goal. The momentum was totally with them and the injury snuffed it out.

Good day overall though, very strange to be watching a game where you care and the outcome actually matters.

Both sets of fans were spot on to be fair.  Was funny seeing four Gateshead fans stood in the middle of the road goading about 1000 cambridge fans outside The Globe - Was all in good spirits.

Just a shame the ticket prices were so expensive as im sure both teams would have brought more fans along if it was something like £20 a ticket.  Still think they would be better off holding these types of games where there will only be 20/25k at a smaller venue.

Post by: HTT on Tuesday 20 May 2014, 12:29:05 pm
Well that was a great weekend, just a shame about the result. Cambridge didn't really deserve their win on the balance of general play but Gateshead fannied about with the ball too much at times and overplayed it a lot. They are a good passing/possession side but lack a threat up top. Hopefully Shaw will come back or they can get an all-rounder up top. A 38 year-old scored their goal!

The whole day was fantastic though, Wembley is an amazing stadium the atmosphere from the Heed fans was great. The fans behaved impeccably the whole weekend and lots of Cambridge fans couldn't believe how sporting they were.

I'm not a true supporter so I was gutted for their genuine fans, especially the hardcore an dof course Wood and Mills and the players who have worked so hard all season. Maybe league football is a step too far at the moment though. Everyone who was there will remember the day, atmosphere and whole ride for a long long time.

I didn't get to the Green Man before the match but went back for a few pints and although practically deserted compared to earlier no doubt, there was still a decent atmosphere.

And the weather... f***ing lush. Only bettered by the jack and danny!

They are not my team, but that was one of the best experiences I've had in football and they shall be getting my coin next season. f*** NUFC until those c***s do one. They are getting nowt out of me, money, emotion, not a thing. I've been to more Heed matches in this last season alone than I have Toon games in the last 3.

Ticket prices were insane, it should be 20-25 quid max. That said, it has to be played at Wembley for the fans and players because its often a once in a life-time occasion. Even though there was just under 20K there the atmosphere was cracking and looking around it was obviously empty, but looking around the Heed fans it wasn't and the same at the Cambridge end and that's all that matters really.

I hope a good number of the 8K or so who attended Wembley and the Grimsby Semi stick around for next season like.

Dat ambition.

Quote
Gary Mills and assistant Darren Caskey have been working hard in the transfer market and terms have been agreed with four new players.

All four have Football League experience. Two are strikers and the other two defenders, a right-back and centre-half.

Mills has also offered a contract to another striker, for whom he is waiting for an answer, and is on the lookout for a left-back.

Experienced playmaker John Oster (pictured), fellow midfielder Rob Ramshaw and goalkeeper Alex Baird, meanwhile, will all be re-signing.

Last season's leading scorer James Marwood was offered a new deal but, as reported on this site earlier, has signed for Scottish Premier League side St.Mirren.

Marwood is the only player offered a new contract that has moved on.

"Marwood did very well last season," said Mills. "There were a number of clubs after him and we wish him well over the border at St Mirren.

"He was offered a new contract but decided to move on. He knuckled down and worked hard last season and, hopefully, he will continue to do well and kick on."

Lewis Guy signed today as well. Played 20 odd games in League 1 last season, pretty big signing I'm guessing.
Nowt but praise for the Heed. Far more ambitious than their "big" brother.

An increase of almost 80% has been recorded so far with supporters getting behind The Heed's fight to get back into the Football League.

As well as Season Tickets being available the club are delighted to offer details of a Flex 15 Ticket for the 2014/15 season."

The main thing I notice at Gateshead about youngsters from premier league academies who play for us, is that in the majority it takes 2+ months of regular playing time for them to adapt to the physicality of senior football, and only then do they start to look like match winners.

Obviously there are one or two exceptions to that rule, but it basically highlights a big problem with the physically weak nature of reserve team football. I don't agree with that daft B team idea, but something needs to be done to progress young homegrown talent through, or the future will only become bleaker for the England National Team.

Newcastle's academy is shocking. It's taken a few months for Gary Mills to sit the lad down, talk to him and make him realise how good he can be. When he arrived at Gateshead he was a big time Charlie who was a decent individual with a very dodgy temperament.

The 20-year-old leaves the International Stadium for a club record fee, and the sizeable six-figure sum is likely to rise due to various add ons.

Gateshead Sign Striker Carl Finnigan
11/09/2014, by Gateshead FC
Gateshead have signed former Newcastle United reserve and academy striker Carl Finnigan until the end of the season.

The club are still awaiting international clearance for the 27-year-old, who was released by South African side Chippa United in June.

Jarrow-born Finnigan has also enjoyed spells north of the border with Falkirk, St Johnstone and Dundee.


Finnigan scored 59 goals in 102 appearances for Newcastle's reserve side but failed to make a first-team appearance before signing for Scottish Premier League club Falkirk in 2007.

He found the net 27 times in 128 appearances in four-and-a-half years with the Bairns and joined St Johnstone in 2011.

Loaned to Dundee in February 2012, Finnigan scored three goals in five games, and the transfer was made permanent that summer.

He moved to South Africa last year and signed for Port-Elizabeth-based side Chippa United following a successful trial before returning to the north east to link up with Gateshead.

Looking forward to seeing what Roberts has to offer. The little bits I've seen he looked like a Marcus Maddison sort of player who we've massively missed since flogging to Peterborough. Hopefully it'll kick start Campbell too, who looks to have been stuttering on his loans at other clubs.
Title: Re: The Gateshead FC Thread
Post by: GeordieT on Friday 16 January 2015, 01:06:14 pm
I know he is still only 20, but Campbell needs to really get his arse in gear quickly or else he will probably be playing at this level of football permanently.
Title: Re: The Gateshead FC Thread
Post by: nufc4eva on Friday 16 January 2015, 01:24:24 pm
Better for both to be down there rather than playing reserve football. Not sure what the crack with Campbell is, whether he can't handle the physical side / just doesn't show up. Smaller players seem to slip through the net, can see same with Arma at some point if he doesn't find a position / style that works for him. Can't help but think small strikers only work in right setup and have excellent technical skills.

Better off becoming attacking midfielders / wingers
Title: Re: The Gateshead FC Thread
Post by: Dr.Spaceman on Friday 16 January 2015, 02:27:18 pm
I've got a feeling that Roberts is going to be the better of the two. We'll see. We have massively missed Maddison like. I hope this Saint-Luce is the real deal too. It looks like we're going for more pace.

Marcus Maddison scores another cracker for Peterborough. Hope the Heed have arranged a decent sell-on fee.

Fwiw

Looks like they've done well out of it.

Gateshead forward Marcus Maddison has signed for League One club Peterborough United on a permanent deal.
The 20-year-old leaves the International Stadium for a club record fee, and the sizeable six-figure sum is likely to rise due to various add ons.
The Heed also have a 20% sell-on clause for Maddison, who has agreed a four-year contract with The Posh.

Title: Re: The Gateshead FC Thread
Post by: Heed on Wednesday 22 April 2015, 11:42:09 am
From his point of view they have a bigger fanbase, easier to attract players to (reputation, further south), better ground & it looks better on his CV to advance his career (Manager of recent ex-league club Wrexham Vs Manager of little Gateshead).

From our point of view it feels like a boot in the teeth, especially his unnecessary comments to the local Wrexham newspaper yesterday. If it goes wrong for him down there (unlikely), it'll now be very hard to comeback to us with any respect from the fans, players & I'd imagine the Chairman.

As for the 70 or so who applied after Smith hoisted the white flag, the majority were dross who apply for anything and everything gong, and the few ok candidates are now employed elsewhere.

Took my 3 and a half year old to his first ever match yesterday and for the majority of the game he enjoyed it and had fun. He was constantly singing 'Wa Gateahsead' and shouting 'Come On White Team', shame about the result. When the walked out and saw the lush green pitch he actually said 'wow'. As a Geordie I should be taking my sons to watch the Toon, but I just can't under Ashley and while it saddens me, Gateshead are a proper club and a great environment for my boys to be part of in terms of football. I'll be taking him again and the youngest when he's ready. Was good to see some mates and old faces too, I've not been to anywhere near as many Heed games as I would have liked to.

Gateshead are almost as infuriating as the Toon. They have far too high a player turnover for my liking, all they needed was one or two after their play-off season, but lots come in. This year has been similar. Crosby was always an odd appointment mind, and Mills was a tough act to follow. I wouldn't mind, but they were doing well earlier on. The football was poor though.

They won 1-0 thanks to a goal in the 4th minute of stoppage time, they are only 3 points off the play off places.

On a roll at the minute. 5 wins in a row which includes wins against 2 of the top 4, back to within 2 points of a Play-Off spot, all on a shoestring this time (sold their best striker in the summer to the Scottish Premier League, and their best striker in January to League Two). Would be good if their momentum could get them over the finishing this time!

Neil Aspin the favourite to be the new Port Vale manager.

Watched them quite a few times under Aspin (including Saturday just gone) and they play awful football. I'm not expecting tiki taka in the Conference but it really is boring, I'm sure they played a lot better football under Gary Mills. Wonder if they might go back for Mills? Although he's done really bad since leaving Gateshead
Title: Re: The Gateshead FC Thread
Post by: maybe_next_year on Tuesday 3 October 2017, 07:50:33 pm
They played some great stuff under Mills, think it makes a big difference to crowd numbers  at that level, although I have not bothered to do any fact checking on that probably incorrect statement.
Title: Re: The Gateshead FC Thread
Post by: Dr.Spaceman on Tuesday 3 October 2017, 07:59:52 pm
Basically Mills played ultra-Swansea 2012 football, passing the s*** out of it and keeping it on the deck. It was good enough to get us to the play-offs. Aspin on the other hand is the complete opposite, ultra hoof ball with little to no real alternative. It's absolutely turgid to watch and has ultimately cost Gateshead a few hundred fans each game.

Not sure we'd be able to convince Mills to come back, but I'd definitely be going for someone who has a track record of being able to balance attractive / effective football. People are calling for Richard Money (remember him?) who has a very good record at this level and won League 2 with Wallsall in 2007.
Title: Re: The Gateshead FC Thread
Post by: HTT on Tuesday 3 October 2017, 09:06:42 pm
Mills' side played some cracking stuff, very much like Arsenal though, pass and pass but not very direct when it mattered so lots of frustration in the final 3rd. I fear for Gateshead like. Corporate is f***ed and attendances are down, big players in the supporter ranks who organised away days have almost given up too. Great little club as well.

Did he leave under a bit of a cloud last time and would have to repair a relationship with the board? Or was it quite amicable?

Closest they've came in recent years to getting back to the promise land was under Mills so that would give supporters hope and played much better football than Aspin's turgid stuff

My Steve Watson story (it's probably already in here somewhere).

When Fantasy Football was all the rage we ran our own league meaning having an auction which we had in the Barley Mow (much lamented Quayside drinkery). Someone mentioned Watto and we didn't know to put him in midfielders or defenders til the barman said "ask him, he's over there". So we did, he was, in local parlance "geet canny", saying he didn't know, he'd play in goal, would play anywhere etc. About 10mins later on his way back from the bog he asked "How much did I go for ?"

With the Leicester match being moved for TV I wondered if I could fit in Gateshead's 3pm kick off. Based on Maps it looks just about not doable but as it's quite tight, might as well get a local opinion to just to be sure.

Should be fine as long as you walk pretty quick.  Walk to Gateshead Stadium Metro is a 10 minute walk and then 5 minutes on metro to monument then another 10 minutes to St James' Park.

How (un)realistic would it be to make it from the International Stadium at 16:45 to St James' for 17:30 on 09/12? With the Leicester match being moved for TV I wondered if I could fit in Gateshead's 3pm kick off. Based on Maps it looks just about not doable but as it's quite tight, might as well get a local opinion to just to be sure.

If you shuffle quickly I reckon you can probably do it in 35 mins. Alternatively get a cab. Shouldn't be much just to drop you over the bring somewhere albeit traffic will likely be s***.

Gateshead Stadium metro is only a 10 minute walk away. You'll get to SJP with time to spare in my opinion.

I will be going to Wembley though if they get there, glory seeker style. To be fair I’ve been to more ‘Heed games home and away in the last decade than Toon games so howay the mighty ‘Heed.

They don't help themselves like do they.

I've been along to watch the Heed only once in my time. Was a good standard, but in all honesty so long as they're at the athletics track I probably won't be back along. If NUFC aren't playing and I fancy something else I'll pretty much always rather go along to a NL game where for 1/3 of the price you can stand next to the pitch.

At the moment the Heed don't fill a niche as a good professional team nor as an intimate non-league side, instead occupying a grey area in between, which IMO goes a long way to explaining their poor crowds.

Yep, I go to quite a few Bromley matches down here, but I wouldn’t go to Gateshead mainly because it doesn’t have the feel of a proper football club. Lower leagues is all about the character.

Yeah, Gateshead are just a little too far up the pyramid for me to cheer on as a 2nd team.

I don’t often get time to do stuff at weekends that arn’t home games, if I do I tend to try and go to the match (NUFC) or keep up to date with the score. If I do go to non-league then I’d prefer to see North Shields or Whitley Bay play.

Went today, canny game, they won 2-1. 7th in the table and a few points off a play off place. First half they cruised to a comfortable 2-0 lead and looked dominant. Second half Hartlepool come out the best side and got one back through a pen and could have grabbed a draw after another pen was awarded which they missed. Gateshead also had a man sent off. Overall they dseved the win.

They play some good stuff and seem to have a few extra gears they can go up, but played within themselves from what I gathered and regulars commented on. Over 2k there, I went with 4 others but ended up sneaking into corporate to see some mates and ended up staying with them. Basically got in for nowt. Good to see some really good friends. Ended up not staying long afterwards though, I’m on a huge drinking cut down. Not stopped yet, but cut way way down.

1 pound for a hotdog in a bap as they ran out of buns and after the match leftover sausage rolls and pies were dished out for free. My mate’s nephew is now coaching their under 19s as well after coaching roles at Man City and Burnley, lad has talent so hopefully he will go far in coaching.

Really pleased for Watson, seems to be doing a cracking job. Relegation faves at the start of the season and they play some good stuff. Very good to watch.

Holds them back so much as it is the reason a lot of people don't bother. Pretty sure that with a small neat non league/ lower league stadium they'd pull in a decent gate and have a good atmosphere.

What capacity stadium would suit them? 5,000? Too many?

Ground needs to be 4000 (expandable to 5000) to meet FL requirements.

Big club, big fanbase, moving into a new stadium next season. He's clearly looking more long term because despite their relative league positions I'd still back York to be a football league club before Gateshead are. Far more potential there.

The last decade they have shown they can more than survive when managed right and everyone is pulling in the right direction, but your right they have been punching above their weight and that will show eventually as seems to be e case because there is no real prospect of growing any further. Not while they remain at the International Stadium anyway.

It would be a shame if they drop or go under, but there are clubs lower down than them in the region wit much more scope to grow and be self sufficient. I’ve always thought NUFC and Gateshead could benefit each other mutually with the ‘Heed maintaining their inependance, but friendlies aside, ex Troon academy players ending up there periodically and a number of NUFC fans attending some games, there is no real ties between the two clubs.

I do know Mike Ashley has been ap-proached to invest in/buy Gateshead in the past, they badly need someone who will invest in building a stadium first. Someone who doesn’t want to make money from Gateshead itself being a football club nor saddle the costs and debts of a stadium onto the club.

If not they will have to all decide just what kind of club they will all be happy to accept which may well be an amateur social club type team playing to a few hundred on a Sunday or cease existing full stop.

What’s happening now with the owners is bad though and seems like they would rather get what they can while they can than walk away because at this level there is no money to be made and no return on any investment and no owner should be there for those purposes.

Maybe it’s time for fan ownership? I’d certainly get involved in such a scheme because I do like the club and try and support it whenever I can, however I can.

A few years ago the FA proposed an idea where bigger clubs like Newcastle could buy a 10% share in smaller local clubs like Gatehead. With it they could use the smaller club as a semi-sort of academy and have strong ties with the club. Something like this would have been ideal for Gateshead. I dare say a promising youngster from the academy playing for them would draw a few more supporters in.
Gateshead having a stadium that also doubled up as our academy/reserves stadium and possible shared training facilities would lessen a financial burden from the likes of Gateshead and other clubs around the UK.

Ashley would never get involved in Gateshead because there is no money to be made out of the relationship, not in the short or medium term in anyway. He will also see 1,000 fans going to see Gateshead play as 1,000 fans who should be coming to SJP. Additionally the current rules would prevent him from doing so, even if he did suddenly decide to stop being a c***.

Post by: Heed on Sunday 3 March 2019, 09:44:21 am
The tie up between the two clubs comes from a few years ago when the then Gateshead owner was looking to get out. You were apparently looking to to create some sort of feeder club model for players to progress through to the first team. The idea was starting them on loan at Gateshead (having progressed Gateshead to being a league 2/1 club), moving them on to Rangers, then onto a Spanish club (can't remember which one he was interested in, think it may've been one of the Spanish island ones) and finally the first team. Gateshead's involvement in the plan came to an end when the then owner sold the club to a local couple who were set to sell their business. I guess the overall plan was scrapped when it all wonky with Rangers?

Phoenix club will be set up! All set for new owners too, lots of dodgy stuff going on. Disgrace, fans shat on once again, the FA, government and local authorities need to do something. A law where fans have role on board, percentage of ownership and indeed local councils have a controling stake, needs introduced or something.

This kind of thing seems rife in the football league, I’m not sure why every club is living so far beyond its means. I guess they are in the PL too, only the owners are rich.

Watch this space... I’d be up for contributing in any way I could to a inter-city club set up to give both sides of the River a club to support. I wouldn’t even mind if it was based in Gateshead, cheaper land etc.

Half of them don’t have any money in terms of hard cash, they get that through their clubs, no different than gangsters half of them, pretending to be legit businessmen running legit businesses, skimming cash off the top, o-ending up credit lines, hiding money via switching debt, liabilities, loans, overpaying agents, consultants, who in turn kick some back. It’s all rotten.

Personally think it's been coming for years with the amount of owners that have came though the club with none being able to make it sustainable.

You’ve got to question the motives for buying, we can all accept the motives for selling, but buying? Gateshead and any business that brings in cash if ‘managed right’ in terms of how to squeeze that cash out is a lucrative cash cow, even little old Gateshead.

That’s what MA bought us for, his own personal cash cow which he’s cleverly been doing with the club for over a decade now, the entire structure of the club and how it’s run designed solely to allow him to ‘legally’ take out large sums of money in the tens and tens of millions.

Money he’s tricked everyone into believing belongs to him and is his to take and not the club or the business’ which he claims he personally loaned the club from his own pockets under the guise of interest free loans.

Lies, lies, lies!

I guarantee MA hasnt put a single penny of his own money into the club because he doesn’t have any money or didn’t. He blew it all on buying the club in the first place which went into the pockets of the Halls, Shepherds and other shareholders not the club.

He blew the rest of it on buying back SD shares, other businesses, a divorce, partying, drinking, Rolexwatchrd, flashy cars, homes, gigantajeans, friends for hire, PR, boats, holidays, a helicopter and of course, at the casino and it’s at the casino where he learned the art of how to scam, scheme and skim free cold hard cash out of a business.

We’ve got it all wrong with Mike who I take back whatever I’ve said about him being a s*** businessman, he’s a genius, an evil genius I have to say in that he doesn’t care about nothing but money and how much of it he can make from scratch and to hell with who he tramples on along the way.

Its not about making SD more money or any malice towards Newcastle supporters or not understanding anything about football. It’s just business, it’s about making MA money and lots of it, money for nothing.

When MA one day sells NUFC, he will have skimmed whatever he paid for the club from the coffers getting his money back, paid to him from bogus loans and of course, all the money from the sale price on top. Guess who wins again...

When he said Rafa can have every extra penny the club makes to spend, what he forgot to say was not before and only after my cut.

MA has literally made the club pay for him to be the owner...

Financed by fans at crazy interest rates.

Withdraw your money and he goes, until then he’s going nowhere even if he gets whatever he paid for the club back out of the club, money for nothing remember...

The rise of North and South Shields probably hasn't helped either. That Gateshead Stadium 'deal' was a killer too. I can't think of anywhere else they could play their games near Gateshead though.

Aye, evil genius was a bit OTT!

I stand by my words though, NUFC is a cash cow for MA and he is taking money out he never put in. Not out of his own personal money anyway. Once he gets what he paid for the club, he will then sell us. Everything he’s done since he took over has been deliberate, calculated and designed to siphon off money from the club. If only someone would investigate the accounts properley...

What rise of North Shields?
North Shields refuse to be promoted (they have to in future), but the club actively doesn’t want to progress.

Probably to save themselves though, some clubs can't handle the extra costs of being in a higher division.

I get why they are reluctant to go up, I just don’t understand how OCK is saying they are on a rise, they arn’t. South Shields, yeah ok, Blyth, yeah, heck even Morpeth have had ambition and some sort of rise in the last few years. North Shields haven’t though.
