A spokesman for second-division side Beijing Enterprise confirmed the news to the BBC. Tiote spent the bulk of his career with Newcastle, amassing 156 appearances over seven…
Newcastle United played Burton Albion yesterday in a match noteworthy only for one particularly galling error made by head referee Keith Stroud. These Sky Sports pundits discussing the mistake on air were just as bemused by the incident as the moment called for.
Newcastle tied up Sunderland late to secure a 1-1 draw. Aleksandar Mitrovic scored the equalizer, and was understandably pumped since it came in the 83rd minute against a rival. Mitrovic ran away from all his buddies to celebrate with this jeans-wearing Geordie.
Jonjo Shelvey has been on the verge of breaking out for five years. He played for every English youth international team, and was plucked from Charlton Athletic by Liverpool at 18.

Perhaps Danny Simpson is best known as a former Manchester United youth player, or as the boyfriend of a pop star and X Factor judge, rather than for his soccer skills. Now he can be the Newcastle defender who got knocked out outside a Manchester club late Saturday night! Surely that's an accomplishment.
While two different goal-line technologies are approved for use by the world's top soccer organizations, neither are implemented in the English Premier League yet—the limeys electing to stick with the power of the human eye for the time being. That's unfortunate, because EPL assistant referees are blind as bats.…
Demba Ba was slow to start his 2011-2012 campaign and then disappeared entirely from Newcastle United's scoresheet after the month of February. It deprived us glorious goals like this one he scored against Manchester United in February.
The final day of the 2011 MLB regular season enchanted us with its insanity; its events became a video game montage and inspired its own tag here on Deadspin.

This is what happened to Fulham's Philippe Senderos when asked about Newcastle United's Joey Barton.
