Re: WEEKEND FOOTBALL - 14/17 SEPTEMBER 2018

Two things, (incorrect) expectation that group games will be dull and predictable City fans have running vedetta against UEFA. Part based on FFP rules aiming at 'punishing the nouveau rich vs established elite' but also on some specifics. In 2011 Mario got racially abused but UEFA fined Porto only ...

Re: WEEKEND FOOTBALL - 14/17 SEPTEMBER 2018

I see Man C had 10,000 empty seats last night. Can you imagine if we ever got back into the CL, every game would be a sell-out. When this happens is it because they have a lot of fans that travel into the city for home matches that can't do it on a weeknight? Are the tickets even more expensive tha...

Of course they are.

Our stadium outweighs theirs in valuation

but their squad smashes ours out the park.
21k in the London conurbation > 52k in Newcastle. I mean land prices are on thing. But the ability to get high paying corporate tickets to boxes more so.

Re: WEEKEND FOOTBALL - 31 AUGUST/2 SEPTEMBER 2018

This Cardiff arsenal match is a cracker. Arsenal can't defend crosses, especially from free kicks.

Ozil, when he was playing right midfield reminded me of Ben Arfa in lack of desire to track back

5-4-1 it looks like
4 CBs starting, what odds on the ball not to get out of our half for 90 mins <laugh>
4? Is Dummett a cb now?

Tbf I've always thought what Ashley is wanting for the club is more than fair. Not sure why everyone kicks off when he says he wants £400m.
Does the 400m include or exclude the debt? Otherwise the enterprise value is like 550m, which is a material difference

Re: EFL cup. Notts Forest v NUFC

We've got Murphy and Atsu on, both playing on the wrong side. And Joselu doing the Shearer thing of having to get on the wing to get the ball. Rafa's trademark attention to detail on show there. I hate inverted wingers. I don't understand why managers love them so much. sure if you have Arjen Robbe...

Perez on the wing? He's never been good there. Heres a thought, bring on a winger out wide FFS

Well this is poo. Rafa won't change it till it's too late either.
this. It's clear the players out there aren't going to score so why not change it for half an hour not the customary 15 minutes

looking at the bench options I'd like to see one of Rondon/Perez/Murphy sooner than later.
Yeah, very little threat on the left.

Re: EFL cup. Notts Forest v NUFC

I actually think that we look good going forward as a team but individually we're not up to scratch. Impressed with Sterry and Longstaff, Muto is being a nuisance (Quite how he didn;t get a free kick or penalty I'll never know). Defensively we're horrific, but that's to be expected from the team se...
