Re: Basketball

Don't know what happened to Harden. Choke?, it looked like he'd never seen a basketball before. Some of the misjudged passes he threw made Sunderland's midfield look like a well oiled machine. Anyway, Newcastle Eagles are in the final today against Leicester Riders. Is it me or don't the Eagles get ...

Re: Banner over Stadium of Light

If it said "MOYES OUT" i'd have chipped in myself!!!
The last half of the 15 points season was quite upbeat compared to this dross!!!

Re: If Newcastle signed Defoe...

Big Sam had the majority of this squad gathering top half points for half a season. That was down to an organised structure and players understanding they had to work hard to match every side for effort. Only then would their "slightly" higher skill levels show against the worst teams. Th...

Re: If Newcastle signed Defoe...

Sorry Piston, I like you as a poster and one of the rare decent mackems but I can't agree with this. IMO you comfortably have the worst squad in the PL and whilst I agree with a lot of the Moyes defeatist stuff, i'm not sure if underachieved is the right word for it. Perhaps George Caulkin put it b...

Re: If Newcastle signed Defoe...

I'm not one to defend our players/squad and definitely not management when it isn't deserved but in my honest opinion we've got a squad that should at least have managed 4th bottom. All piss taking aside we should've managed that meagre "achievement". Pretty much the same squad managed &q...

Re: Colback

Was a decent player at sunderland. Usually managed a consistent 5/10 or 6/10 for less than peanuts wages. Like a any good professional made himself available for selection and turned out nearly every week, which many others couldn't say. Not very adventurous but his role was mainly defensive and you...

Re: If Newcastle signed Defoe...

There's some fools who think we'll do quite well with this squad, as though its this squad we'll have!!! Anyone of value will be sold. We'll be left with some highly paid clowns who no-one else will touch. Some of these won't look quite as bad in the championship but even with relegation clauses th...

Re: If Newcastle signed Defoe...

Slow reply and i'm not sure if it's been mentioned elsewhere but i'm led to believe that there's a clause in his contract which allows him to leave on a free if/when we've been relegated. I'd imagine interest from a few clubs so there may need to be a signing on sweetener but he may waive that for ...

Re: Club Hatred

We gained probably around 12 to 15k fans in the early 90's. Sunderland gained around 20k when they moved ground in 96 (I think it was) yet that's never brought up. If they say they always sold out Roker park, they're incorrect. Put me right on those figures if I'm wrong Piston, who actually seems a...

Re: Basketball

It was 110 v 108, Grizzlies win. Real close game. Kawhi Leonard is playing very well, and at both ends. Not quite enough this game but he did everything and more to win it. He hit some real clutch shots, but then so did the Grizzlies! Warriors are probably still favourites overall but coach Steve K...

Re: Basketball

Been some great games so far. Grizzlies and Spurs series is tight. I was hoping the Spurs would win that series 4-1 but the Grizzlies are no pushovers themselves (Heard that the last game was an epic OT win for the Grizzlies). It was 110 v 108, Grizzlies win. Real close game. Kawhi Leonard is playi...

Re: Basketball

The OKC front office need to get the right players in if they're going to build around Westbrook. Good players who don't mind deferring the spotlight but aren't afraid of the spotlight when it shines on them. They need to be a genuine threat when Westbrook draws the double team. If this happens OKC ...

Re: Basketball

Just watching the GSW v Portland game. Even though he's had a really good game defensively today, Draymond Green is a massive cronut! If GSW signed a genuine dominating big man i just can't see how they could be stopped apart from the salary cap. If they went with a core of stars and absolute duck ...

Re: Club Hatred

Most of the real bitterness/envy came from the Keegan era. Not necessarily because of newcastle's success, more because it came at a time sunderland were at a real low so we were literally world's apart. Up until that era and since there hasn't been a lot between the two clubs. There shouldn't real...

Re: Club Hatred

Aye, you're spot on, that's exactly the time it started. We were miles ahead of you around that time, now we've suffered two relegations in the time you've stabilised yourselves in the premier. Swings and roundabouts. <ok> That's a bit of a stretch mind. True, and even worse when you think how much...

Re: Survival or Promotion???

Hard to say as it varies massively from club to club. It's rare nowadays that clubs go straight back up but we look like doing it this year and last time we went down we walked it, yet Villa are struggling massively and Norwich aren't pulling up any trees. There's also teams like Wigan who blew hot...
