After getting the job, It was clear to see that i had top training facility's and good youth facility's. After having a look at my squad i could see i needed to improve striker and center defense .

It was clear to see that i some good youngsters coming through the ranks. Adam Campbell CF, Remie Streete CD and Jak Alnwick. I am going to try and give each of these players as many games as i can to help bring on there development. I have plenty of strength in the center of midfield department in Tiote, Anita, Cabaye and Sissoko.

The main problem that i had was that i only had three million to spend on players. So that means i would have to get rid of some of my squad players. To bring in a couple of forwards and a center back. The first i did was offered 6 players to other clubs. There were


James Perch, good utility player, but was not going to get much of a game.


Mike Williamson center back but makes to may mistakes for my liking.


Gabriel Obertan another player that Newcastle have got from Man U who just not good to play in the premier league. Can run all day but can not cross the ball.



Danny Simpson only had a year on his contract so I thought i try and cash in on him. Good player but stats are not good on this game.


Shola Ameobi the mackem slayer. Getting old and just does not get enough goals.


Nile Ranger just don't like this kid, Newcastle give him to many chances, should of got rid of him a couple of years ago.

Here are my key players that I attend to build the team around.

Tum Krul probably the best young goalkeeper in the Premier league.


Yohan Cabaye is going to be the heart of my midfield. He will be played in a deep laying playing role.


Ben Arfa probably the best french player ever to play for the toon and we have had a lot good french players over the years.


I decided to go with a 4,2,4 formation two centre backs, two wing backs, two in midfield field, two attacking wingers and two strikers. I'm going to play short passing style, as well zonal marking and high pressing. I am going focus my play down both of the wings.



My attention and focus for this formation was to play Ben Arfa left attack and to cut inside to run at the defense or so i thought.



Fans gather outside St. James!
News just in......Newcastle have sold Ben Arfa to Manchester City. A fee believed to be inbetween 18 - 19 million for the attacking midfield player.
We now go live to St. James Park were our reporter




My first big test as the Newcastle manager was to explain to the fans why i let Ben Afra go, this was not going to be easy. I stood outside St. James Park, very nervous the fans surrounded wanting an explanation why i let the best player go. It brought memories back off when i was a young fan and King Kev had to do the same thing over the selling of Andy Cole to Manchester United.

I told them that we received a bid from Man City for Afra for 10 million which we rejected. Arfa was not happy with this decision as he didn't want to stay with the team and wanted the chance to play on the big stage of champions league football. Man city then offered 15 million we said no again to this, I was looking for 20 million. We evidently agreed on the fee for 18.5 million pounds.

I told the fans that the money we got for the sale of James Perch 4.6 million to Stoke and Afra would go on new signings.

I started searching for a forward to go along Cisse. I put bids in for Kevin Volland a young German Striker who has great potential to be a world class forward. I also try to sign Oscar Cardozo. I had agree fees with both clubs but neither player wanted to sign for me.



I was looking for young talent for the future so i sent my scouts around Europe to see what they could find. I had a massive list of players that they said i should go for but two reports stood out for me more than anything else. So i decided to put i bid in for these players. After a bit of haggling I managed to agree a fee for both players, but the big question would they want to come to the toon.

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

Newcastle United has announced the first two new signing of the season. England under 17 international Mason Bennett from Derby County for a fee believed to be around, and French under 18 international Neal Maupay from Nice for a fee of 1.5 million pound. Maupay started his career at US Valbonne and was signed by Nice in 2007. Maupay said: "I am delighted to be a Newcastle United player."This is a massive Club playing in the best league in the world, and I believe my style of play is suited to the Premier League.
"I have heard lots about how fantastic the Newcastle supporters are and cannot wait to get started.

Newcastle United manager Neil Sewell added: "Maupay is very highly-thought of in France and he's somebody who our scouting team have been greatly impressed by.
"At the age of 16, he will only continue to get better. He's already represented France at under-18, under-16 level.
"He's strong and quick and we're looking forward to seeing him develop here."




Mason Kane Bennett (born 15 July 1996) is an English professional footballer, who plays as a forward for Derby County in the Football League Championship. He has also represented England Youth at U-16 and U-17 Level. He holds the record as Derby County's youngest-ever player, when he made his full debut with a start in a defeat at Middlesbrough on 22 October 2011 at the age of 15 years and 99 days old. He beat the previous record, set by Lee Holmes 9 years earlier, by 169 days. Bennett also holds the record of Derby County's youngest goal scorer with a goal against Tranmere Rovers on in the FA Cup on 5 January 2013 at the age of 16 years and 174 days old.



Bennett said: "I am really proud to have joined this fantastic Club.
"Throughout the last couple of years I have enjoyed every moment of my time at Derby but all good things must come to an end and it was time for a new challenge.
"And the challenge of playing for one of the most famous teams in England, with all of its history and its famous support, is very exciting.

Newcastle United manager Neil Sewell added Bennett is a player we have had our eye on for a while, he can play in a few positions up front, attacking right and left as well as behind the main striker.

If you want a DM Gazzi, will do a fine job, Bianchi domiantes as a Poacher for 5-6 mil and Bakic is one of the bestPlaymakers in Game, alongside training Parigini as a winger

Will take a look at them, what I really need is Cover Krul, someone who does not mind being his understudy.

So I sit at St. James press conference room waiting for all journalists to arrive for my first pre match conference, it just dawns on me what life is going to be like now.

Tony Evans (Times): “Neil welcome too ST. James Park. How to you feel managing the club that you support as a child?”

Sewell:” It’s a dream come true, what Newcastle fan would not want to manage their club. I will do all I can to prove that Mike Ashley was right to make me the Newcastle manager.”

Oliver Holt (Mirror): “Are we going to see anymore new signs coming into the club and if so what type of player’s are you after?”
Sewell: “We are still looking to add to squad. We are after young players who can make an impact in the first team.”

Stuart Latimer (local Reporter): “Sources from Holland have informed me that you have agreed a fee with Ajax for their transfer listed player Toby Alderweireld you care to comment about that?”

Sewell: “Yes I can confirm that we have agreed a fee with Ajax and the player agreed personal terms with the club, he will fly in for his medical in the next few days.”

Stuart Latimer (local Reporter): “Can you tell us what sort of contract he been given and what you have paid Ajax for him?”

Sewell: We got a massive game derby game coming up so I’d rather focus on that.”

Stan Collymore (talk sport): “What can of approach can we expected from you again Sunderland on Sunday?”

Sewell: “I like to play attractive attacking football, but it depends what team we are playing on that day.”

Henry Winter (Telegraph):” Are you nervous, that if you lose against your local rivals in your first games the fans will turn on you?”

Sewell: “I have full believe in my players losing is not in my mentality.”

Stuart Latimer (local Reporter):”Thanks Neil good look with Sunderland!”

Newcastle fans start sing a song about Taylor.
Oh Steven Taylor,
He's neither here nor there,
Oh Steven Taylor,
He's everywhere.
Oh Steven Taylor,
STEVIE'S GONNA GET YOU!!
15 minutes gone Taylor plays along ball forward to Gouffran who passes ball to Gutierrez who runs towards box. Then plays a one two with Gouffran, before he drills the ball into the box were Cisse who out jumps the Sunderland to defense to head the ball in. Ferguson runs down the left wing unchanged to float the ball into the box onto the foot of Gouffran who smacks it into the bottom left corner. Injury time second half Sissoko loses the ball Johnson runs clear of the Newcastle defense on the left wing cross the ball into the box Fletcher lobs ball over the keeper Santon wins the header against McClean ball drops to Fletcher who smashes it into the top corner.

Santon rescues a point for the toon. Newcastle found themselves two goals down at halftime due to defensive errors. Newcastle did reply midway through the second half Cisse his head on the end of a cross, but Tim Krul found himself picking the ball out the net for a third time in game a few minutes later. Taylor pulled another goal back by scoring a header from close range. In the final 12 minutes off the second half Santon runs onto to a Sissoko and smashes from 30 yards out into the bottom right corner.

Young Guns (Newcastle) show no mercy to Ventspils. Newcastle United rested eight players from there last game. Young guns Maupay (16) and Campbell (17) both got on the score sheet in game which Newcastle were never going to lose.



Two games into the Primer league season and we find our-self 6 in the league. We have also qualified for Europa league group stages.

Player of the month
Could not chose between Cisse scored 4 goals in four games and Taylor who got 2 goals in four games for a center defender that really good.

Huge mistake selling HATEM BEN ARFA for only 18.5m. Despite him wanting to leave you should have stuck to your guns - or if you sold him you shulda got 30m+ for him!

We deserved to take the 2-1 lead before Mbiwa got sent off, i presumed we would be on a hiding after that, but some how we manage to keep Rooney and co at bay.


Player of the Month


Scored two goals against Man U and two Man of the Matches in a row, Maupay wa close but he scored his goals against weaker teams.



Six games have been played in the Premiership and we find our-self in second place, could we challenge for the league in my first season only time will see.

Has had the best rating per match and score couple of goals again, in truth the whole team have not played well this month.

View attachment 358856

Scoring two goals in three games and been the rock in defense. Could of went to Gouffran who be in deadly form up front this month, but played realy bad against spurs that was the only difference between the two players.

Newcastle drop to 9th after the heavy defeat to Spurs. We going to have to wait and if Sewell and co can bounce back from a bad result and performance
