'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Lost Fixtures Cost United Millions

Newcastle have recorded a loss of 6.3million in the club's interim results for the six months ending January 31, 2006. This compares to a profit of 9.7million over the same period last year.

The losses are principally attributed to a fall in overall revenue fell from 49.5million to 43million due to the club having six fewer fixtures in all competitions.

Newcastle also invested significantly on players during the period, signing Michael Owen, Albert Luque and Nolberto Solano. Profit before player trading was recorded at 2.7million, down from 8.5million on the same period last year.

Chairman Freddy Shepherd: 'The current season has been disappointing with performances on the pitch falling well below the level we expected. Since his appointment as acting team manager, Glenn Roeder, capably supported by Alan Shearer, has overseen a significant improvement in team performances.

'We want this positive trend to continue, while our search for the best possible team manager takes its course.'
