Roger and Out: Federer shock exit was enough of a headline on its own, however a number of other BIG Seeds and BIG Names tumbled raising a few eyebrows in the process.
After finishing the 2007/08 campaign just below mid-table and having featured in the top half for the majority of the season (even managing a week in pole position) optimism was high on Tyneside going into 2008/09. New signings Jonas Gutierrez, Danny Guthrie, Sabastien Bassong and Fabricio Coloccini were all welcome additions to the squad which we had hoped would carryˎewcastle United˯nto the next level.
‘Manchester Derby’ Sunday 23rd September 2013 marked the end of a quite remarkable run which stretched back to March 2011, but for most United supporters this startling statistic largely went unnoticed given the performance and result in a hugely disappointing day for The Reds.
I wrote this piece for Newcastle United’s largest independent fanzine The Mag back in August, just before the start of the new season and just before the disaster that was ‘The Etihad’.ˁfter only three Premier League games ( 1 win / 1 draw / 1 loss) and with the team currently sitting in 12th place am I wrong for thinking – Where has it all gone wrong!?
Featuring prominently amongst the chatter at PhysioRoom.com Headquarters over the past few days are some familiar Premier League injury faces as the after-effects of a tough midweek cup schedule plays havoc with many a tactical game plan. Will he? Wonִ he? Hopefully I can answer those all-important Premier League injury questions before the transfer deadline, helping to maximise potential point scoring before Septembers enforced sojourn. Ahead of Շame Week Threeՠmy Premier League Injury Round-Up will focus on some of the main discussion points raised by ‘you’ in the build-up to the fixtures this weekend.
Following on from a pretty hectic couple of days I thought I֤ provide a quick overview of this weeksՠkey injury talking points taken from the build-up to tomorrows Premier League kick-off.
For some the disappointment will live on, while others are still basking in the glory of another successful campaign but for the majority this weekend will provide the ideal opportunity to start afresh with renewed vigour, blind-abandonment and unabated enthusiasm. It can only mean one thing Рthe new 2013/14 Premier League is upon us and this year we֬l be providing a quick overview of all the keyˣlose-season developments with the help of our friends across @fantasyYirma.
Supporters of Newcastle United may have been forgiven for thinking մhis might just be our yearծ
The most interesting aspect for me going into Wimbledon 2013 is the draw and the seeding which surrounds the newly patched up Rafael Nadal.
