Pod On The Tyne: A show about Newcastle United

Off-pitch catch-up, Weekend Preview, and Cock van der Palm!

Listen on

Episode notes

It's another big weekend for Newcastle United with Ange Postecoglu's Tottenham looking to defy an interesting pattern among teams to win at St James's Park this season, and Huddersfield Town rounding off a punishing eight-day spell by trying to stop Becky Langley's women from sealing back-to-back league promotions.

But, there are a few off-pitch matters to catch up on as well. Joelinton's contract negotiations are picking up pace, so it looks like he's staying on. Great, but prompts the painful question: if you have to bring in money through player sales, which of our current squad would you choose to offload?

If we want to make enforced sales a thing of the past, we'll have to grow revenues. Ticket prices would be an unpopular choice, but what about lucrative tours abroad? When we have the worst injury record in the division, compromising pre- and post-season plans also seems risky.

Oh, yeah, and Cock van der Palm!
