There's whisperings of Joelinton out wide. Could be interesting.
Didn't he often play on the wing or in front 2s at Hoffenheim?

Re: Match day thread - Burnley v NUFC

1-0 win. We'll see how the side responds (again) to missing ASM's dribbling and possession.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

I honestly don't know what we're on about now. The point was that some people were discounting Championship performance and suggesting that because Gayle produced there, and hasn't in the PL, that we should be sceptical of Bowen. My point was that those two young players (without PL experience) pro...

Re: Championship: The league of gamblers?

We've been so damned fortunate to get back twice at the first time of asking. You look at that league, which I still consider to be one of the toughest and most gruelling in the world and see the teams in it and it's a lottery to be top 6. And then especially to get through the playoffs. Glad we ne...

It's scary to think how much s*** we'd be in now if we'd had a few seasons in there <yikes>. Did you watch the video? it'll be interesting to see what the FA do to Sheff wed as one of their fans said it'll set a precedent. It just shows how crazy some owners are in their quest for the prem lge even...

To name two young players who've made the jump from the Championship to the Premier League and played well this year: Mason Mount and Daniel James.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

I'd like us to take a punt on Jarrod Bowen from Hull. Was excellent last season and tops the charts so far this season with 14 goals/4 assists. I fully expect PL clubs to show interest in January and it would be good if we were one of them. It's good they're midtable too, as I'd expect them to be e...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

Don't disagree with your point, but has Gayle even touched the ball in his two brief appearances? It has highlighted that no matter who plays the 9, right now we're not good at getting them the ball in dangerous positions (even Andy is only receiving the ball at his head). Barely. And he's fat now ...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

I'm not against bringing him in, but shipping out Dwight Gayle who scored 20+ in the Championship for someone scoring in League 1 feels very wrong. Don't disagree with your point, but has Gayle even touched the ball in his two brief appearances? It has highlighted that no matter who plays the 9, ri...

Another multi-million pound payout, lucky git.
It's funny clubs are all so willing to sign these long contract extensions with managers, even though they never keep them until the end. I know it's a part of negotiation, but it'd be in their best financial interests to all keep them shorter.

Re: MATCHDAY THREAD - NEWCASTLE UNITED v SOUTHAMPTON

For sure, I don't think you can separate a lack of confidence from the equation. One way or the other I agree with the observations that his positioning hasn't been optimal, which I think is a product of a host of things (confidence, experience, instinct, coaching, tactics, luck, etc.). Yeah I'm no...

Re: MATCHDAY THREAD - NEWCASTLE UNITED v SOUTHAMPTON

Oh I don't disagree, he clearly doesn't know where to be to get on the ball in goal scoring positions , but that goes back to my point that he didn't play that position or in a similar system for Hoffenheim, and it seems like an example of bad fit/scouting. It's a criticism of his ability, but I ca...

Re: Desperate for attendance? Free half season ticket

Reading nufc.com and it seems there is a thought process that the 8-10 thousand could be snapped up but never used so even though attendance would show 52k the tv images would show lots of grey empty seats. Screw anybody who would intentionally take one of these and not go to matches because they c...

Re: Desperate for attendance? Free half season ticket

Ashley deserves so much criticism for his inept ownership, but I will say the front office has always been good about ticket pricing, with respect to loyalty programs, away ticket pricing agreements, etc.

Don't worry, I think they'll remain our competition this season (just hopefully around mid-table).

Re: MATCHDAY THREAD - NEWCASTLE UNITED v SOUTHAMPTON

I’m not convinced he does try his best , works hard for 45 minutes then disappears. His positional sense and reading of the game is actually appalling. Yeah it’s not his fault but at the same time , an attacking player should at least be getting into the positions and letting a shot go now and then...

Bruce did come in pretty late so not really much he could have done in terms of signing more attackers I suspect.
Plus they'd spent over 80m on the front line in 6 months - more money wasn't coming before 2 of them even kicked a ball for us.

Re: MATCHDAY THREAD - NEWCASTLE UNITED v SOUTHAMPTON

Bruce is absolutely brilliant. What a revelation. Class job he's doing. Got to say everyone is doing brilliant apart from that little cronut Joelinton. What a waste of money, spunked £40m down the drain. We look much better when Carroll comes on / starts. Otherwise though, to a man the team were gr...
