Willock on the cover for Chelsea clash

Joe Willock takes centre stage for Saturday’s issue of UNITED – the Magpies’ official matchday programme – with Premier League leaders Chelsea the visitors to St. James’ Park.

The midfielder, who enjoyed a prolific loan spell at St. James’ at the back-end of last season, sits down for his first in-depth chat since making his move to Newcastle a permanent one.

Ex-frontman Shola Ameobi is the latest former Magpie to take part in Q&A Revisited, in which we bring back to light some of the quick-fire interviews undertaken by United stars over the years and then see how many of their answers remain the same in the present day.

There’s a Toon Tombola debut for Jeff Hendrick, who discusses wrestling and Will Ferrell, while Toonament History – the brand new feature in which we take a look back at the Magpies’ connections to football’s two biggest major tournaments – continues with a look at Euro 2012, a competition which followed a wonderful Premier League season where United were concerned.

This week’s Guest Column, meanwhile, comes courtesy of writer and football stickers connoisseur Greg Lansdowne, whose latest book, Panini Football Stickers: The Official Celebration, comes out next month. Ahead of the book’s release, Greg provides a fascinating insight into the Magpies’ rich association with Panini stickers through the decades.

Club Historian Paul Joannou considers the legacy of the club’s legendary Edwardian Masters side in 140 Years of Action, while regular columnist Stan Gate provides a further four pages of nostalgia in Programme Matters.

Young defender Matt Bondswell provides this week’s Academy diary feature, giving his own take on recent events at Little Benton, while we find out a little more about Newcastle United Women’s Rachel Lee – one of the Lady Magpies’ recent recruits.

Furthermore, there’s eight pages on opponents Chelsea, as well as Jamaal Lascelles’ latest notes and assistant head coach Graeme Jones’ thoughts ahead of the game.

If you’re not able to make it on Saturday, you can still order your programme online – available on Curtis Sport’s website here.
