A Month Of Saturdays: September 2010

September - the month which sees summer turn to autumn always feels like a month in flux. Something which should resonate with Newcastle's fortunes over the ninth month.

On the positive side were the wins against Everton and Chelski's squad players, but on the other side were our two home performances against Stoke and Blackpool.

In the press it was a case of Alan Smith telling us something we already knew, Alan Shearer confirming something we'd long suspected, Graeme Swann delivering something of a surprise and Fat Sam demonstrating that he really is in a world of his own.

Off the pitch, Steve Harper's injury served as an opportunity for Tim Krul and also showed that while Shay Given might currently be warming the Eastlands bench, he's still in Harps' inner circle.

On the pitch, following success over the Great Unwashed, Sol Campbell moved closer to his league debut.

A mixed bag too for players and former players, with everyone's favourite trumpet-playing Peruvian love rat seeing a house repossessed and Gazza last spotted heading for Garforth Town. Of the current crop Peter Lovenkrands was found to be travelling a bit too fast for his own good, but loanees Fraser Forster and Kazenga LuaLua continued to impress.

Finally, Bigger Lad was the subject of some serious photoshopping by Guardian readers, the club's quest to brand the stadium continued and we took an opportunity to spruce up our blogroll and in Ben's case to see how one of the clubs in our recent past are adjusting to life in League One.
