The Season We Thought Would Never End... Ends

5/25/2021
Taylor Payne hosts this very special edition of your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic with the help of club correspondents Chris Waugh and George Caulkin. This is our best attempt to sum up the events of an indescribable season. Truly a rollercoaster of emotions, and success, it's been a remarkable year in many ways. Steve Bruce's side accumulated points apace in an early-season surge before plunging into seemingly irreversible decline and despair. That they did manage to...

2 Fans 2 Furious?

Taylor Payne hosts your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic accompanied, as always, by club correspondents Chris Waugh and George Caulkin and, for one week only, two very special guests.

Safety Secured by Wilson (TM) and Co

5/12/2021
Here's the latest edition of your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic. Hosted once again by Taylor Payne and with regular correspondents Chris Waugh and George Caulkin. Friday night saw the Toon trounce Leicester at the Walkers Stadium, yes those names are the right way round, and we wonder how the team can swing to such extremes of performance. Plus, a round-up of the latest nonsense off the pitch. We have had some remarkable results against Leicester down the years, but...

Boring, Boring Arsenal Defeat

5/5/2021
Taylor Payne is the host of your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic, hindered only slightly in this task by the curmudgeonly club correspondents Chris Waugh and George Caulkin. A dismal 2-0 defeat at home to a significantly weakened Arsenal had the unpleasant odour of Newcastle's wretched winless run which ended recently and we'd hoped was behind us. Twin cities, Leicester and Manchester, await and competing will be a psychological chore as much as it is a footballing one. We...

Where there's a Willock...

4/27/2021
Taylor Payne is the host of your go-to Newcastle United podcast from The Athletic and he's joined, as always, by the dedicated, dynamic duo Chris Waugh and George Caulkin. We're confused by feelings of positivity this week and, while a 1-1 draw at Anfield may not have quite the same gloss in 2021 as it would any other season, we had great fun watching the messy madness unfold. Newcastle face another ESL team next and with the help of a special guest, Athletic Arsenal correspondent Amy...

St Maximin Condundrum Cracked?

The Athletic's Newcastle podcast team are back to full strength after a week dodging each other on Bamburgh beach. Taylor Payne hosts a review of a splendid seven days with Chris Waugh and George Caulkin. Allan St Maximin was the key figure again as the Toon tamed high-flying West Ham, even if the visitors did play a significant role in their own downfall. And, after the European Super League bombshell dropped, we look at the ramifications for Newcastle's ongoing takeover drama and the role...

Warren Barton on the 1892 Pledge

4/14/2021
Chris is on holiday but regulars Taylor Payne and George Caulkin are joined on this special edition of The Athletic's "go-to Newcastle United podcast" by none other than Warren Barton. Based in California, the former Toon lynchpin still works in the game as a coach and broadcaster. He has been keeping a keen eye on the goings on at St James' Park and hasn't been shy with his views on the current regime. Warren's enduring connection to the club is so strong, in fact, that when the Newcastle...

Spurred Back to Life

4/7/2021
Taylor Payne hosts The Athletic's Newcastle United podcast with the most dynamic of journalistic duos, George Caulkin and Chris Waugh. There's a palpable sense of positivity in the air this week after a point, and a well deserved one, against Jose Mourinho's Tottenham.

There's also a rundown of the craziest performances by NE...

The Accumulation of Point

3/9/2021
Warning: this Newcastle United podcast, hosted by Taylor Payne and featuring The Athletic's George Caulkin and Chris Waugh, features strong language and unpleasant imagery...
