Re: Newcastle involved in payments to transfer fixers in 2011

I don't think football cares about these kind of payments. Who will do something about it, the Premier League or FA? We won't be the only one I'm sure

Re: Squad confirmed - 4 goalkeepers

Yeah I have a mate early 30s who was a keen runner, got it in early 2020 and still fatigued most days. Has to delicately balance doing too little/much or he'll need to rest for 24 hours.

Darlow on COVID

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/58486106

Sounds like he had it rough. Glad it convinced other players to get the jab. We have 4/5 hold outs. Who do you think they are?

I'd guess at Jonjo

Never felt so abandoned at work No confirmed input to what I'm allowed to do than final comments at literally the last moment.

Re: Bruce set for contract extension?

I saw rumours of his holiday on twitter, but some journo pointed out the photo matched an image from two years ago.

I don't like how he's performing as a coach, but this seems like a smear

anyone used DHLGate (https://www.dhgate.com/wholesale/search.do?act=search&dspm=&sus=&searchkey=Newcastle+united&catalog=#pusearch1812)?

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

Sean looked good when he had a really specific limited role in a midfield 3 under Rafa. However he isn'tgood enough to play in a midfield 2 and he has a kanck of going missing in games. Injuries seem to have regressed him as well. If we could get £10m for him it would be a good deal. I think some '...

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

Didn't realise his contract ran out next summer so if £10m comes in we're 100% accepting it, loaning Choudhary and Ashley pockets the rest. We are very poorly run. and Ashley has sold real estate assets off. But he's never pocketed a transfer fee. also I'd imagine the loan fee + agents fees cuts pr...

Re: Match day thread: Newcastle v West Ham

Agree on Almiron. Shelvey wasn't the worst and I thought Hayden was worst. I feel bad, played out of position and he suffers, as do the back line by having no protection. You'd hope that next match Willock will presumably be fulfilling that get forward in attack/support role and Hayden will be shie...

Re: Match day thread: Newcastle v West Ham

Though I thought that Shelvey was far from our worst players yesterday. In midfield, Almiron was back to his headless chicken routine of lots of running without doing anything. Agree on Almiron. Shelvey wasn't the worst and I thought Hayden was worst. I feel bad, played out of position and he suffe...

The athletic were saying we dont have a strict budget. It flexes if someone young they want is available. If willock was loaned, we wouldn't have spent the 20m elsewhere i thiw

Re: Willock Fee Agreed

Id imagine he smartly wants a short contract and/or a release clause. He'd want Newcastle to be a stepping stone, so wants to gave power to move up when he wants.
And a relegation clause for sure
