As ever we will have a new issue of THE SPECIAL in all our subscribers in-boxes on New sat_spec_32_samsungYear’s Day morning  ahead of our game with Burnley at St James’ Park.

This is the perfect match-day read and it is absolutely FREE.

This is the read for match-going Mags and its perfect on smart-phones in particular but its also ideal for tablets, i-pads, kindles, laptops and PCs too.

Its a brilliant read on the bus, metro train and waiting for your hopeless mates in the pub or at half time and back home again.

Every match-day we will have 100% original writing for you as well as a quick fixture related quiz. We’ll also have a mini-podcast focused on the up and coming fixture – this time obviously its Burnley related. Don’t forget to stick a set of ear-phones in your poke in order to listen to Alex and the lads chew over the issues of the day.

I’m delighted to reveal that from now on we will be joined by long-standing writer, Wallace Wilson whose job here on in will be to analyse the opposition and give us something of a rounded analysis of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats provided by the day’s opponents.

That means our team for THE SPECIAL is yours truly, our Deputy Editor, young Mr Harrison, regular and long-standing writers, Guy Hannay-Wilson, Alex Hurst and Mark Brophy with Wallace joining our ranks on THE SPECIAL desk.

Its Newcastle United, so there will always be new stuff to cover and with THE SPECIAL, you will know it will be new, fresh and original.
