Re: Bruce leaves the club by 'mutual consent'

These quotes from him are heartbreaking, as I always said I think he did as good a job as he could under an Ownership who pretty much told him how high he could jump despite him wanting to jump higher. He got a lot of unwarranted criticism at times which as I've said when Rafa was in charge was dir...

Re: Minority of not, some of our fans are embarrassing right now

We are ripe for exploitative vox pops because the ground in so central in the city. And not far from pubs. Most other cities don't have that

Re: Minority of not, some of our fans are embarrassing right now

Also I know this will sound like victim blaming but Luke Edwards is a smart guy, he's a heavy Twitter user, he knows the environment, but he still pokes the bear with fans on a daily basis, he acts like a prick and trolls a lot himself so I find it a bit rich that he's somehow surprised he's receiv...

Re: Minority of not, some of our fans are embarrassing right now

The one thing I'd say is absolutely what you've said in your first line, Twitter can be an absolute cesspool and there's absolutely no way you can tell if that's posted by a Newcastle fan or indeed even someone in the UK. But yep, it looks bad, and I'm still dreading arriving on Sunday. I'm still j...

Minority or not, some of our fans are embarrassing right now

So I don't want to rehash our discussion on the takeover generally. But its really cringe seeing some of of our fans completely simp the Saudi state and actively defend them and have a go at any criticism. Like having a go at Khashoggi's fiancé, or the below: https://twitter.com/LukeEdwardsTele/stat...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

I also feel priorities should be:
1/ Another goalscroer who will stay fit
2/ Central Mid to control games
3/ centre back

Attacking mids are far down my list

Something like this in January would be great to see us through to the end of the season.

Re: Takeover back on - DEAL DONE

But like Disney don't have a choice of who invests in them, there's hundreds of imputations who have shares alone. That's the point of the stock market. So you what find out (pay?) who owns small stakes in every plc you encounter? And which countries do you need to avoid? UAE, Saudi, China? Its a l...

Re: Takeover back on - DEAL DONE

It's true though and it's not "whataboutism", people cannot be selective about what Saudi investments outrage them, you can have the stance of "I've mentioned the takeover first so you can't bring up other investments". It's a ridiculous stance, if you are going to make a stand against their invest...

Re: Takeover back on - DEAL DONE

Generally I find this article ok but then a section made me think of something that annoys me. A false equivalance many nufc fans have been making It is possible to be happy with the conclusion of the Ashley era, while also appreciating the cost it has come at.

I wouldn’t blame him at all if he did, he’s Liverpool through and through.

Jelle vosson.... I dint think we can jump to Koulibaly. They disparity in wages between the rest of thwbsquad would be huge. And that type of player doesn't want to build, thet want to win now.
