Summery Dismissal, Derby Dearth, and Big Dan Burn

6/21/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh, Senior Writer George Caulkin, and news reporter Phil Buckingham. George is a little thrown this week as he's usually on his yacht in St Tropez at this time of year. Instead, we're podding through the heatwave with an exclusive Dan Burn interview, a look ahead to next season's fixtures, and a special feature about the fixture we definitely won't have. There hasn't been a league match...

The Season in Black & White with Alan Shearer

5/25/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh, Senior Writer George Caulkin, and special guest Alan Shearer. It's our last podcast of the season so we're looking back over a seriously eventful campaign, one that saw us winless from our first fourteen games before the sale of the club brought renewed investment, energy, and ambition back to St James's Park. Eddie Howe came in as manager, rejuvenated the squad, and presided over an...

MAG-nificent Monday: Signing Off at St James's in Style

5/18/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your snow-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh and Senior Writer George Caulkin. Eddie Howe's team have produced an astonishing surge up the Premier League table in 2022, but inspired by a rousing display from Wor Flags and the resulting atmosphere, they produced their most complete performance of the season to beat Champions League chasers Arsenal. It was a remarkable evening in so many ways and we celebrate the night in true...

Catching Up with City and Paul Ferris

5/10/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh and Senior Writer George Caulkin. Manchester City were convincing winners and, along with last week's defeat to Liverpool, the team have been left in no doubt as to how much they must improve to challenge at the top of the table. But, how much can Newcastle's new management take inspiration from the rapid rise of Manchester's "noisy neighbours"? And, there's a reminder of how bad...

Bank Holiday Bonanza

5/3/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh, Senior Writer George Caulkin, and Women's Football Writer Charlotte Harpur. Liverpool came to St James's Park on Saturday lunchtime and showed us the level required to be a world-leading club side. Eddie Howe's team have exceeded expectations this season, so how do they get closer to Jurgen Klopp's standard-setters? On Sunday, NUFC's Women made their first appearance on the same...

Cloud Ninth with Risky Rafa and Pete the Promoter

4/26/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh, Senior Writer George Caulkin (sporadically), and Fulham writer Peter Ruzler. Eddie Howe's team has gone from strength to strength to strength to strength since the humbling defeat at Spurs and we've a rundown on the two most recent wins with a formidable test against Liverpool next. George tells us about his catch-up with Rafa Benitez in a busy Blackburn eatery, and after Fulham...

Revival and Survival: Resurrection Complete

4/18/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh and Senior Writer George Caulkin. A change of ownership and coaching staff breathed new life into the team this season, so it seemed appropriate that we'd all-but seal Premier League safety on Easter weekend. We try not to get ahead of ourselves here on PotT, but we have a little daydream about the potential return of European football to St James's Park.

Wolves Sent Packing by New Newcastle

4/12/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with Senior Writer George Caulkin and this week's guest, Alex Hurst of the NUFC Supporters' Trust. Friday night's atmosphere at St James's Park, featuring another superb display from Wor Flags set the stage for a great win over Wolves. That vital three points eased the slight relegation worry that had crept back in after three consecutive defeats. Alex Hurst was at the ground having met with the club's new owners...

LNER Facilities: In-Depth Report

4/5/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh and Senior Writer George Caulkin. We saw the worst 45 minutes of football so far under Eddie Howe as his Mags gave Spurs the freedom of North London. It wasn't all about freedom on Sunday, though, as Chris can readily testify. It's about time we had a home game, and we won't have to wait very long with Wolves coming to SJP on Friday night. On the eve of that clash the PotT team will...

Paraguay, Paraguay, Paraguay...

3/29/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh and SENIOR Writer George Caulkin. Even though we all needed a rest, we're struggling with the boredom of international break. Luckily, Miguel Almiron's goal in South American World Cup met with quite a reception. There's also some encouraging news for the women's team, a familiar name joining the coaching department, and vegetable storage advice to boot.

Two's Company: Everton Reaction

3/22/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh and nobody else. Our dynamic duo reflect on a surreal St Patrick's Day evening at Goodison Park, one which left us all feeling like we'd been cable-tied to a goalpost. Better news on the injury front, though, as the squad jetted off to Dubai for warm-weather training and a couple of our loanees have been doing well this week, too.

VAR and Away: Newcastle Beaten but Safety Beckons

3/15/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh, Senior Writer George Caulkin, and special guest Thomas Concannon. We've two games to look back over, a great win at Southampton and a controversial defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, the latter attracting media attention because of the debate about club ownership. They made up half of our run of four consecutive away games, all attended by guest Thomas Concannnon. The last of...

Fraser on Fire & French Fancies

3/8/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh and Senior Writer George Caulkin. Brighton were the latest victims as Eddie Howe and Ryan Fraser celebrated award nominations with yet another win. Could Fabian Schar be the next in line for honours? Dan Ashworth will be staying in Sussex for the time being but we've an update on his ETA and an interesting debate on the relative qualities of HBA and ASM.

Black & White: Night & Day

3/1/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh and Senior Writer George Caulkin. Eddie Howe's side made light work of ten-man Brentford after Josh da Silva's red card but the performance was in stark contrast to the chaos of the corresponding fixture at St James's Park. As we reflect on a near-unimaginable upturn in form we also hear from Amanda Staveley and Mehrdad Ghodoussi, who, it's fair to say, aren't being coy about their...

Competence is Bliss

2/22/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh and Senior Writer George Caulkin. We're revelling in Newcastle's new-found functionality this week. The players have defined roles that fit their skillsets and the midfield of Jonjoe, Joe, and Jo, is anything but stuttering. No rest for the wicked, though, and we're back in the capital for a game that, while big for Newcastle, looks huge for Brentford. They have just one point from...

Trippier, Winning, and Howe!

2/15/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh and Senior Writer George Caulkin. News of an injury to the inspirational Kieran Trippier has taken the edge off things slightly but we're in a state of disbelief after Newcastle won their third match in a row. It was a nice way for manager Eddie Howe to bring up 100 days in charge, and we discuss the progress made under his watch.

Everton Overwhelmed... George Excited

2/10/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh and Senior Writer George Caulkin. We're all on cloud nine after the St James' Park faithful raised the roof and the team, inspired by Kieran Trippier, put in a performance to be proud of, sealing back-to-back Premier League wins. It looks like Dan Ashworth will become Newcastle's Technical Director, or similar, but a compensation package has to be agreed with Brighton to ensure he...

Deadline Trio: A Satisfying Transfer Window

2/2/2022
Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with club correspondent Chris Waugh and Senior Writer George Caulkin, wrapping up a pleasing January transfer window. Bruno Guimaraes, Dan Burn, and Matt Targett completed the club's January business and we were so pleased we provided a musical welcome to the much-needed reinforcements; the results were, let's say, mixed. And, as promised, we've been eavesdropping on Alan Shearer's interview with Kieran Trippier, the...
