Re: The Message of Hate Thread

What do you use for news? A mix. I'll use Google News for a general overview of headlines from various sources. But I most often read The Guardian, The Spectator, The Telegraph and the FT. Then every now and then I'll read the WSJ and NYT. I used to be a religious Independent reader but went pretty...

Re: Loanees 2016/2017 (Armstrong-watch)

Vuckic going on trial with Twente. Hopefully something works out for him but clearly not cut out for football in England after failing to impress (or even hold down a first team spot) at the likes of Rotherham, Bradford, Wigan and Cardiff. Highlight of his career so far is hitting the bar against W...

Re: Rafa Review

No I meant mute. And I'm sorry, but for the millionth time I'm happy with where we are in the league, but it absolutely isn't nitpicking to say that I'm paying £600 a season to watch pretty poor football (and results) at home. There is a middle ground where you can sensibly critique our tactics wit...

People have extremely short memories if they don't think we're in a far better situation now than we were in 12 months ago.

don't know what mbemba's done like, but i definitely think he should see more game time, not at DM though

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v Fulham

I'll put it this way, if we had a winger on the opposite side making the contribution he does, we'd be walking the league.

For those of you in Newcastle, a new bottle shop called Champion has recently opened on Chilli Road. Seems to have a decent selection <notbad>

Re: Match Day Thread Reading v NUFC

Yes, January did happen and everyone who said we desperately needed to sign someone has been proven wrong. Don't disagree with that statement but that's hardly the full point is it? Anyway the podcast is worth a listen. Rafa can't just expect money to be thrown at him, Ashley is still going to want...

Re: Match Day Thread Reading v NUFC

Watched it at St. James'. We looked tired but we were solid at the back and other than a few half chances they never really threatened. Thought Gamez did well but we lacked pace on both wings which I don't think helped. Shelvey looked at little bit off the pace but still managed to create a few dece...

Yes on prelims I think though <scratch>

Overeems KO of Hunt was brutal.

Lando hype derailed as he doesn't really know how to defend against strikes
