The Newcastle takeover view of a man who admits he may not have been here to witness a transformation

Newcastle United need to improve and are not moving any further despite repeated claims by the club that progress is being made

That’s Lee Ryder’s view after United drew 1-1 with Fulham at the St James’ Park – as the Magpies failed to beat the West London side in the last 30 minutes of the second half despite a one-man advantage

Callum Wilson’s penalty in the 64th Minute after Joachim Andersen toppled the striker, the goal increased, but United couldn’t take advantage of the farewell

When asked if the referee got the penalty right – with a helping hand from VAR – Ryder told The Everything is Black & White Podcast that Newcastle was “lucky” before frustration at not giving Fulham defeat

It should be the season when party invitations are in full swing, but a pandemic and lockdown restrictions mean this will be a Christmas like no other

Newcastle United are still handing out invites but doing very little to improve the bad mood on Tyneside after a week of just one point against two of the newly promoted teams and six goals conceded

Just Newcastle’s invitations aren’t the fun type you would associate bringing a bottle or two to a friend’s house to reflect on the year that has just ended

When playing so deep in your own half at Gallowgate, you wondered if the Magpies were lining up to get to the Tyneside Irish Center when they were picked up by a Fulham team who only played once in six games before Saturday night had won, inviting strong pressure, scored only a dozen goals

And after that tactic backfired massively, Newcastle and Steve Bruce used social media to criticize their frustrated fan base, who had not been able to express their views publicly since March

There is no doubt that some social media content should be removed immediately if certain users are forced to seize their phones instead of receiving a Twitter ban

The one-two punch from Robbie Savage and Chris Sutton could just give Richard Keys and Andy Gray a run for their money, and no, that’s not a compliment

The couple, who host a live phone on BBC Radio 5 Live, seem to get a kick out of poking Newcastle United fans on Twitter, and Saturday night was a prime example of that

A little over half an hour after referee Graham Scott followed the Magpies’ uninspiring tie with Fulham at the St James’ Park had whistled all day, Savage posted on Twitter

Savage simply posted a screenshot of the Premier League standings and Newcastle was 12th with 18 points Place the caption? “Newcastle are 6 points behind a place in the Champions League after 13 games”

Savage, to be fair, was merely giving a fact if you’d take him at face value, but the Welshman who played in Birmingham under Steve Bruce has never been shy about the pot in the past to stir

The extra shoulder-shrug emoji at the end of Savage’s tweet naturally annoyed Newcastle supporters. In other words, Newcastle fans, why are you complaining?

Aleksandar Mitrovic may not have completely ruined Newcastle United’s night when he returned to the St James’ Park scored a goal – but the Serbian international was definitely noticeable

Mitrovic had Fulham on forefoot for 76 minutes as the Cottagers dominated possession for most of the game

The former crowd favorite of Toon then took on the role of cheerleader from the stands shouting “Keep it Going Lads” and “Come on Boys” as Fulham threatened to win a winner

Mitrovic, positioned in the seats above the dugout, stormed back from the stands to the technical area to claim a penalty after the ball jumped up and Ciaran hit Clark’s hand late

Mitrovic confronted fourth official Jarred Gillett and then his former teammate Paul Dummett during a furious chatter

The passion Mitro displayed during his time on Tyneside has certainly shown no sign of fading

Former Premier League hot shot Ian Wright has given Callum Wilson high praise after taking his eighth win of the season against Fulham

The former Golden Boot winner, who also scored 113 Premier League goals, believes Wilson is able to keep the Magpies in the top division this season and the former AFC Bournemouth man was a bargain at £ 20 million last summer

Wilson only had 11 shots on goal this season but has now scored eight goals – as many as he scored for the Cherries last season

Former Arsenal, England and West Ham star Wright was impressed with his coolness from the penalty spot as he beat the goalkeeper by hitting him under pressure to get his side back into play

That was the open admission of former Newcastle United goalkeeper Jak Alnwick when asked about his mistake in the 2014 Newcastle League Cup quarter-final defeat to Tottenham

The Magpies had taken impressive away wins against Crystal Palace and Manchester City to reach their first League Cup quarter-finals in eight years and there was optimism that the long wait for a big trophy could come to an end

You traveled to north London as an underdog, but United’s victory at Etihad in the preliminary round meant the belief of the traveling Toon army was palpable

Injuries to Tim Krul and Rob Elliot meant 21-year-old goalkeeper Jak Alnwick, whom Newcastle had long been hoping for, scored the tie

After a balanced start, the 18th Disastrous minute when Alnwick spilled a routine corner kick Sadly, the ball fell at the feet of Nabil Bentaleb, who gave Tottenham the lead

Momentum was lost, as was the Spurs draw, adding three more goals to a resounding 4-0 win and Newcastle’s Cup dream was over for another year

It was a mistake every goalkeeper makes during their career, but for Alnwick it was a blow in just his third appearance for his youth club

After Newcastle returned to the capital for another Carabao Cup quarter-final against Brentford on Tuesday, talks inevitably broke out on White Hart Lane that night when the 27-year-old had an exclusive conversation about his time in Newcastle looked back with Chronicle Live earlier this month

In an open reflection, Alnwick made it clear how difficult it was for him as a young, inexperienced goalkeeper to deal with the following criticism

Steve Bruce would make the most of the outcast Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo at the St Get James’ Park out

That is the view of expert Michael Brown, who believes the defense attorney would add much-needed PL experience to the magpies

He told Football Insider, “I think there are some areas that Brucey can do better

“We know this squad has been tough to beat for the last few years, well organized but not necessarily the best skill in the league”

“They added a few, Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser, from the last window and that will help them

“Rojo would be interesting I don’t know how good he would be, but Brucey can get the best out of people, that’s for sure

“Listen, this is as experienced as possible on the high end and I’m sure Newcastle will be interested”

Newcastle United will deal with the credit market or “fire sale” in French football in the upcoming transfer window

That is the view of football finance expert Kieran Maguire, who believes the magpies will have “room” to invest in next month

Maguire told ChronicleLive: “The good thing is that Newcastle has a lot of headroom from a financial standpoint

“That won’t be a problem of yours, that’s the only positive. Then it depends on Mike Ashley’s secret

“Loan offers for players who are not popular in their own clubs – Chelsea have a big squad and Fikayo Tomori has no game

“I don’t link them directly, but these are the types of players who haven’t made any progress in their clubs

“They are good players and their host clubs will try to park part of their wages elsewhere”

Jake Humphrey has given experts and commentators an excellent response ridiculing Newcastle United fans

The Magpies’ draw with Fulham on Saturday night sparked the now regular post-game debate about Steve Bruce and United’s style of play

Scott Parker’s side prevailed in the first half and led at break thanks to Matt Ritchie’s bizarre own goal. The hosts improved after the break and were given a chance to end the competition when Joachim Andersen was sacked for calling Callum Wilson had fallen

The Magpies frontman stepped forward and sent the penalty, but Bruce’s side were sluggish in their efforts to capitalize on their numerical advantage in the closing stages

It was a point United at the time of writing on Jan. Took place, and only six points from the top four, however, it was another uninspiring depiction that once again frustrated many supporters on social media

BBC sports experts Robbie Savage and Chris Sutton have been discussing disgruntled Magpies supporters on a regular basis over the past few weeks, defending Steve Bruce’s previous performance on the hot seat

The pair took the opportunity to renew hostilities after the Saturday night draw, citing their position on the table as evidence of the head coach’s progress at Tyneside

Callum Wilson’s opening on 64 Minute came from Newcastle’s first real counterattack of the game when Almiron pushed the ball through for the summer signing and Graeme Souness had already hinted at how such a service would get the most out of the striker

“I know the boy because I used to be a season ticket holder in Bournemouth,” former Newcastle boss Sky Sports said before the game. “I’ve seen a lot of him, I’ve always had the feeling that they weren’t getting the best out of him because they were a little slow to build

“If you get the ball forward quickly, it will cause problems with the opposition. He’s fast, he’s aggressive, he wants to run forward, he wants to stretch the defense all the time and I really like him”

The problem, of course, is that despite Wilson’s remarkable start in Newcastle, the £ 20million man was often starved and the Fulham game was a case in point

The top scorer rattled his eighth goal of the season home to go home after a terrible night against Fulham at St James’ Park to get one point back

But the Magpies left it too late to claim a much-needed victory and Newcastle will now face Manchester City and Liverpool over the Christmas period

Steve Bruce wants Newcastle United back to top the table, and the Magpies head coach admits that the proposed takeover of the club may have turned the club into what everyone wants – even if it was on his departure would have led

A takeover was never closer in the Ashley era, but the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF) abandoned the deal last summer after looking for complications with the owners and directors’ test of the Premier League and who the club would be ultimate beneficial owner

The PIF and partners Amanda Staveley and Reuben Brothers remain committed to the deal if the Premier League were ready to give the green light to the offer, but it’s hard to find a clear path forward anytime soon >

Newcastle has since started arbitration against the Premier League and the Magpies are pushing for a “fair, full and timely hearing”

Bruce saw Mauricio Pochettino and Rafa Benitez were linked to his job last summer when Tyneside’s takeover talks hit Tyneside again, but the Newcastle head coach has always said he wants “only the best” for the club

Paul Dummett has announced that Newcastle United’s players had no doubt about their role against Fulham after being blown up by Steve Bruce

Bruce was no doubt telling his side how poor they had been in the first half against the Cottager, and Callum Wilson’s penalty turned blushing after the break

Although Newcastle have struck back, they couldn’t get all three points and are now facing a tough trio of encounters against Manchester City, Liverpool and Leicester City to wrap up the festive period

Newcastle United will deal with the credit market or “fire sale” in French football in the upcoming transfer window

That is the view of football finance expert Kieran Maguire, who believes the magpies will have “room” to invest in next month

Steve Bruce has already dampened expectations by claiming it could be the “quietest” mid-season window to date given the ongoing effects of the pandemic

The Magpies’ priority could be to attract first-team players like Dwight Gayle and Fabian Schar to new deals From the 1st Talk to foreign clubs about a Bosman transfer on January 1st

However, Maguire continues to believe that United and their rivals in the Premier League are in a position to revisit the credit market

Steve Bruce says Newcastle United performed better after losing 5-2 at Leeds – despite Fulham failing to beat relegation

The Magpies had a 1-1 draw at the St.Petersburg on a day they decided to park the bus at home James’ Park

“Our defense last night was naive, so expect to learn from it, but we struggled on the ball

Gary Lineker has accused Callum Wilson of diving in the Premier League in a major incident during Newcastle United’s clash with Fulham

Newcastle had a showdown on Saturday night at the St James’ Park scored an own goal from Matt Ritchie as the game neared the hour mark

Then the Magpies received a penalty after Wilson was classified as a foul in the area by Fulham defender Joachim Andersen

Referee Graham Scott consulted his pitchside monitor to confirm that he had made the right decision

The Magpies battled Cottager, who scored through Matt Ritchie’s own goal before Callum Wilson equalized from the penalty spot

It was an uninspiring performance with only two shots on goal scored against a team that was reduced to 10 men in the last 30 minutes of the game

Still, thanks to Wilson’s penalty, they got a point out of the game that gave Savage the chance to restart his and Chris Sutton’s long-running feud with Newcastle fans

Former Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce has received a tip for Dwight Gayle

The former West Brom borrower is out of contract at the end of the season, and Sunderland legend Kevin Phillips believes Allardyce will consider a move

Phillips told Football Insider, “Any championship team would take him and even some lower-tier Premier League teams

“It would make sense to return to a West Brom who needs a goalscorer. You need a goalscorer on your team

“His teams are usually seated and if you want to counterattack you need a goalscorer by your side

“Dwight Gayle is a proven goalscorer and is still very popular with West Brom. If he were made available I would think Sam Allardyce would be interested”

Paul Dummett admits that during his long tenure on the sidelines there were times when he felt like he wanted to quit football

The academy graduate appeared last night in the 1-1 draw with Fulham for the first time in eleven months

“It’s been a long 11 months, I only lasted eight minutes in the last game, and it’s been a long, hard road for me

“There have been ups and downs, there have been times when you have been home watching the guys, and you feel like you sometimes want to stop because you go through times when you don’t feel better

“It’s tough mentally, but that kind of thing as a player makes you stronger and I’ve kept working as hard as I can throughout the lockdown When I finally got the chance to play, I was ready for it

“Luckily I made it through the game and I’m fine. I got a bit of cramps towards the end, so I ran away

“It’s been a long, hard road for me, but luckily I did well tonight and hope I can stay fit

Scott Parker can’t understand why Newcastle United received a penalty against Fulham and the whites boss believes Callum Wilson “dove” into the box to secure his side a penalty

Fulham had a good 1-0 lead when the Magpies launched their first real counterattack of the game after the hour, with Miguel Almiron playing Callum Wilson

Joachim Andersen pulled Wilson’s shirt out of the area, but the striker stayed on his feet before falling to the ground in the box

Graham Scott awarded a penalty and after consulting the pitchside monitor, the referee sent Andersen from Wilson duly stepped forward to convert the free kick and his team equalized

Bruce believed the umpire “made the right call” because Wilson was “not denied a chance to score,” but Parker disagreed and the Fulham boss was “disappointed” that his team returned to St James’ Park

Newcastle Central MP Chi Onwurah has criticized the government for failing to respond on whether Oliver Dowden, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport believes the public investment fund and the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salaman are separate entities

The Public Investment Fund led the consortium that agreed to buy Newcastle United from Mike Ashley earlier this year However, the deal was withdrawn after the Premier League failed to make a decision during the owner and director test

One of the sticking points of the deal was whether the Crown Prince and the Public Investment Fund – the Sovereign Wealth Fund of Saudi Arabia – could be treated as separate, meaning Newcastle would not be owned by the state

It is alleged that the Premier League did not see this as right and offered it to the consortium, which claimed they had given the highest tier a high level written assurance that the Crown Prince would not have a say in day-to-day matters in the club that Possibility of arbitration so that an external body can make the judgment

The magpies were second best over long distances against the cottagers who arrived at the St James’ Park sat in the bottom three seats A Matt Ritchie own goal gave them the lead they deserved before Callum Wilson’s penalty failed

“I thought it would be a terrible feat from Newcastle. No Energy Slow and sluggish in passing didn’t create nearly enough,” he said on the Match of the Day
