Newcastle United played their first game without manager Alan Pardew who started his three game stadium ban. Newcastle left Craven Cottage with nothing on Saturday afternoon as they were beaten one nil by bottom of the league Fulham.

Newcastle have hit a slump in form having won just one out of their last six games. They had the majority of possession in the first half but didn’t have that cutting edge in front of goal to cause Fulham any real problems.  The only real chance the Magpies created came from an early cross from Gouffran, on loan striker De Jong inadvertently sliced his shot into the path of Cisse who poked the ball towards goal but keeper Stockdale who was in for Stekelenburg was alert to the danger and pushed the ball wide. The game opened up in the Second half as both teams pushed for a goal. The goal did come in the 68th minute when Dejagah received the ball wide left, he then cut inside and unleashed a fierce low serving shot, which should have been dealt with by Krul but it squirmed under his outstretched hand to nestle in the bottom corner. With literally the last kick off the game Krul , who was up for a corner was adamant he had won his side a penalty after his effort was blocked by the hand of defender Johnny Heitinga but the whistle from Howard Webb was to signal the end of the game and not to award a penalty

It was a relegation six pointer at the Stadium of Light as Sunderland took on fellow strugglers Crystal Palace.  Tony Pulis would have been the happier of the two managers as they played out a goalless draw. It was clear to see why both teams are in this precarious position as there was little to no quality, composure or confidence in front of goal from both sets of strikers.  It was a relatively poor game neither keeper was really tested. Sunderland have two games in hand to try lift them out of the relegation zone

Middlesbrough’s unbeaten run stretches to three as they held on for a point against Bournemouth. Boro were very lucky not to have gone a goal down when keeper Konstantopoulos fumbled the ball under pressure. Luckily for him the referee judged that Cherries striker Lewis Grabban had fouled him. Boro’s keeper produced two wonderful saves to ensure they left the coast with a point has he kept out both Francis and Surman’s efforts from distance. Manager Karanka said after the game that he was pleased that they came away from this game with a point and would have liked to have rewarded the fans who made the trip down with a few goals. Bournemouth remain place and a point above Boro in mid table

The conduct of manager Alan Pardew has over shadowed what was an emphatic away win at Hull City for Newcastle Utd. Hull had actually started the brighter of the two teams. If it wasn’t for a fine double save from Tim Krul they would have been behind. Krul’s distribution from that double save lead to Moussa Sissoko firing the ball passed Alan McGregor to give Newcastle the lead. Three minutes before the break Loic Remy latched onto an under hit back pass from Maynor Figueroa, pushed the ball passed the on rushing keeper and rolled the ball into an empty net. Hull hit back a minute into the second have as Curtis Davis jumped highest to head into an open goal as Krul was in no mans’ land. A combination of swift counter attacking play and poor defending lead to Newcastle’s third. Remy’s shot was too hot to handle for McGregor as he spilled his shot and Sissoko was quickest to pounce. Then came the moment of madness, Alan pardew was sent to the stands by referee Kevin Friend for head butting Hull midfielder David Meylor. Newcastle added a fourth in the 90th minute as Victor Anita was in the right place as Paul Dummett’s shot was parried into his path.

Sunderland weren’t in Premier League action this weekend as they had the small matter of the Capital One Cup final to contest. Sunderland made the perfect start to the game as on loan striker Fabio Borini somehow found a way past the giant Manchester City Keeper Postal Pantelimon from a difficult angle. Sunderland were comfortable in the first half as they pressed well and looked dangerous when they attacked. It wasn’t until the 55th minute that Sunderland’s back line was breached, and it was breached from probably the goal of the tournament. A phenomenal strike from Yaya Toure 25 yards out found the top corner. Just a minute later, still dazed after the equaliser, City pounced on their opponents again. This time it was Samir Nasri with a curling shot with the outside of his boot found the bottom corner to break the hearts of Sunderland players and fans. As the Black Cats went in search of a goal to take the game into extra time they were hit on the counter and Jesus Navas ensured the first piece of Silverware was heading to Manchester.

Aitor Karanka’s men will be wishing goal line technology wasn’t just in the Premier League. If it was rolled out across all the divisions then Middlesbrough’s goal drought would have come to an end after just 11 minutes. Jacob Butterfield’s strike hit both posts and according to the linesmen didn’t cross the line. Replays and Sheffield Wednesday’s keeper Kris Kirkland admission disagreed with the linesman’s call. Danny Graham had a chance in the second half to give the visitors the lead but was denied by Kirkland. Middlesbrough finished the game with 10 men as Dean Whitehead was shown a straight red card for handling the ball on his own goal line. The Subsequent penalty was dispatched by Nuhiu to win the game 1-0. Boro’s winless streak now stretches to eight games. Aitor Karanka needs to draw on the knowledge picked up under Jose Mourinho to get them out of this rut.

Sunderland inflicted a third consecutive derby defeat to rivals Newcastle on Saturday afternoon. The derby started at 100mph as both teams had created early half chances, as the teams settled down it was Sunderland who took control of the ball and looked the more dangerous side. Victor Anita bundled Phil Bardsley to the ground in the penalty box and the referee had no option but to point to the spot. On loan striker Fabio Borini who scored an emphatic winner in the derby earlier in the season stepped up and riffled the ball into the top corner to give the visitors the lead after just 19 minutes. Less than five minutes later a deft flick from Jozy Altidore allowed Jack Colback to test Tim Krul. Krul could only parry the deflected shot to Adam Johnson who had the easy task of slotting the ball home into an empty net. Sunderland were two up inside 25 minutes. It wasn’t until they were two goals down before the Magpies then started to threaten. The Sunderland defence stayed strong and didn’t allow the home side to penetrate Vito Mannone’s goal. Phil Dowd’s half time whistle was met by a chorus of boos as the home supporters weren’t happy with what they had just witnessed. The second half consisted of Newcastle attacking the Sunderland goal but some fine saves and defending kept them at bay. The Mackem’s looked dangerous on the counter and should have had a third but Altidore was denied by Krul. The visitors did get their third ten minutes from time as they countered again this time Colback found the net from a difficult angle to wrap up another win at St James’ Park. Enough was enough for the home fans as most headed for the exit after seeing Krul beaten for the third time. The win sends Sunderland out of the relegation zone and up into 14th. Newcastle say 8th but have now won just once in their last seven.


Middlesbrough could only come away with a point against Doncaster who were looking for a third win out of four. Neither keeper was really tested as both teams lacked any real quality in front of goal as they played out a goalless draw.  The goals seem to be drying up for Karanka’s side as they have now failed to score in any of their last three games. The defensive side of the team on the other hand are steadily improving as they have recorded seven clean sheets in nine games. Boro packed the midfield and played with only one striker which seemed a very defensive approach. Boro are now nine points of the play offs and will be hoping to find the same form that put them in reach of the playoff spots. Manager Karanka wasn’t best pleased with the performance of his team either which he made clear in his press conference after the game where he said “When you don't play and you don't fight it makes it difficult to win the game and is an embarrassment for our supporters. We have a huge away following. People came to support us and we didn't play for them like we should.”

Middlesbrough Council and Middlesbrough Football Club are joining forces to deliver training and conference facilities in the town.


The move follows the announcement of the proposed closure of the Middlesbrough Teaching and Learning Centre included in the Mayor’s recent budget recommendations for 2014-15.


While the existing MTLC facility off Cargo Fleet Lane remains earmarked for closure, the new partnership will focus on delivering a service that makes best use of the resources and expertise of both parties.


Under the new arrangement, conference and training facilities will be delivered initially from both the existing site and the Riverside Stadium.


The aim is to offer the same range of facilities and services at highly competitive prices, with new products and offers in the pipeline as the partnership takes shape.


Councillor Charlie Rooney, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, said: “This Council and Middlesbrough Football Club are fully committed to work together to promote economic development in the town, and this new approach to providing training and conference facilities is a prime example of that partnership.


“MTLC has developed a deserved reputation for delivering a first class service, and the new arrangement will continue that work as part of the broader economic development strategy for Middlehaven and the town centre.”


MFC’s Chief Operating Officer Mark Ellis said: “We’ve always seen the stadium as a flagship for the Middlehaven site, which is now beginning to make progress towards becoming the important business hub for the town that we believe it can be.

“We see this agreement as another significant step in that direction and we’re delighted to see the stadium facilities being put to use in such a constructive and imaginative way.

“Both MTLC and the Riverside have earned excellent reputations with a wide range of customers throughout Teesside and beyond and we will work hand in hand with the Council to ensure this continues into the future.”
