Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

Been linked with Weghorst, a gigantic centre forward from Wolfsburg. Would be a like for like replacement for Carroll. I think we've been linked with Weghorst before, maybe last summer or possibly the January before that. I think perhaps the latter. I remember looking him up and seeing his pretty i...

Re: Athletic on Charnley

Far more interesting read than I expected. I hadn't appreciated how long he'd worked at the club, and that he'd slowly worked his way up. I think I'd always assumed he was just another business associate of Ashley's. Maybe it's the fact that I read it over several different periods of the day so I f...

Re: Athletic on Charnley

Can't read it either, but Charnley has never struck me as an ill-intentioned man, just one that lacks the football knowhow and resources to hire the right people or have a real vision for the club. That also has too many conflicting objectives he's responsible for.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

I can just hear Bruce now. "We have a list of names and we're trying ever so hard. But it's difficult. We are working within certain conditions and other teams can maybe offer things that we can't. But we'll do our best and see what we can do with what we have". Eerily accurate Well we do have over...

Re: New Kit 21/22

I got a Nigeria shirt when Shola got called up as I couldn't find a real one anywhere. Looks fine from a distance, close up it's obvious that Ameobi uses at least two different fonts... I got one too for our uni sweepstake. Walking through campus with headphones in this group of lads start shouting...

I know they happen but he hasn't had a medical in the Norwegian camp. I work part-time for the Norwegian FA and nothing was scheduled. Last time I spoke with Kris 2 days ago he said he was leaving it up to his agent. He said Bayer was most likely as he'd play in Europe but he'd be very open PL And ...

But has he muddled through the Championship before? Or have years of mediocre-to-terrible performance managing in the Premier League? However could he survive without that?

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

I get the point you're making, but there are a lot of goal posts when it comes to these debates. Is it the clubs that are more recently promoted? The ones with less history of PL success? The ones with smaller stadiums? I just feel having been relegated twice in the past 12 years and on the verge o...

Re: 33-man England Squad confirmed

I assumed JWP would be in the squad too. I'm surprised about White, but that must mean Maguire is properly knacked and Southgate is slowly realising that Mings is s****. One of my best mates is a Villa ST holder and has no idea how Mings is ahead of Konsa in the England pecking order. I'll admit I ...

I don’t think Ajer is any better than what we already have so not really bothered if he signs or not.
I know very little about him. But he is a lot younger than what we have.
And realistically, have to assume at least one of the existing lot will be off this summer.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

If that's true it's not exactly surprising. Same thing happened with Remy and QPR. I think we do drag our feet too much with transfers at times, but a player with no subjective ties to the club will obviously pick whatever the better offer is. Agreed. Why shouldn't players try and make the most the...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

I just think if we ever want to play on the front foot more often, have more posession and show more intent, you can't having a starting CM who is so limited on the ball - as it requires your other CMs to stay deep as well to collect it from him. To his credit, he was a really irresponsible tackler...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

Yeah I think so.. if it comes down to that I'll just take Gallagher then as he's the all-round box-to-box mobile CM we desperately need. An upgrade on Shelvey... ideally we should look to get a upgrade on Hayden too but don't see us getting 2 CM's unless we sell one of them. If the right offer came...

Re: The Managerial Merry-Go-Round Thread

Imagine getting your old job back at RM on the back of Everton's underachievement. Not to say Ancelloti isn't a great manager, he is - but it certainly isn't as if he's leveraged his performance there to make this happen.
