Departure Lounge is overflowing in Newcastle

The Newcastle Jets today announced a further six players will be departing the club, continuing the overhaul of their playing squad which began during the season itself in rather unorthodox fashion.

The Football Philosophy of Zen

No one could accuse Zenon Caravella of not giving everything he has for his team every time he steps out on the park but you’d expect nothing less from some one who has lived and breathed football for most of his life. His passion for the game also extends beyond the park and in particular to providing kids in regional areas with access to quality coaching from an early age.

Loyal fans are forgetting what finals football looks like and after a disastrous 0-4 defeat against the wrecking crew that is the Brisbane Roar when playing their fluent brand of football, Newcastle are winless. Even more of a concern is being accused by supporters and media alike of being spiritless and bereft of effort or endeavour. No rewind button Newcastle defeated Brisbane three times in season 2013/14 and the…

From the Humber to the Hunter

Phil Stubbins left the Humber in 1988 and it’s taken him until 2014 to reach the Hunter. For Newcastle Jets fans, Stubbins’ journey seems to have taken forever but it could be a case of better late than never. Stubbins has changed significantly since arriving in Australia from England to play with Victorian club Heidelberg United. Sure, his mates will tell you that Stubbsy is still Stubbsy and you can take the boy out of Hull but you can’t … you get the picture.
