Five Cup Finals Down, Five To Go

12 years ago

This is the business end of the season and all credit to Alan Pardew and his players for putting Newcastle into a position where Champions League qualification is pretty much in our own hands with five matches to go.

The manager’s reference to the last ten matches being like ten cup finals was quite apt, as he and his back room staff have given each league match the fullest of respect and treated them as though they were cup finals.

We obviously haven’t won every match but nobody can deny that week in week out the attention to detail hasn’t been of the very highest  standard to give the team the best possible chance in the ninety minutes.

Papiss Cisse has been at the forefront of this Premier League run-in and he is the cover star of the new issue of The Mag which is the top selling Newcastle United magazine.

A big welcome to the latest issue of The Mag which is a Cup Final Special! As Alan Pardew said, Newcastle United had 10 cup finals to round off the season and having won the first 5 we have this special issue reflecting on that brilliant run as well as looking forward to these last 5 (Champions League!) finals.


We also have a special interview with a Manchester United fan, exploring the season so far from both clubs’ perspectives & the excellent ‘In Toon Today’ turns its sights on the visit of ‘Ugly’ Stoke.

Plus features, match reports, ‘Whatever Happened to Croatia Zagreb?’,  interviews, ‘Walker Dan’ & our many top columnists including The Corner, Jinky Jim, Boy About Town, Billy Furious, Magpie Moments, Spirit of ’69, And Smith Must Score, Pearson’s World & Gavin Webster Live.

All the news and views on everything Newcastle United, by the fans for the fans.

Read it all in this great issue!

Available on match day outside the ground, at all good north east newsagents and online here in The Mag Shop for delivery worldwide.
