Re: Sports Direct Signs are Coming Down

<divadance>

Wonder if they'll replace with new sponsors or just remove altogether.

Hopefully they'll finally remove the gallowgate pigeon as well.

Re: Match day thread - NUFC V Burnley ( must must win )

As long as nobody does anything stupid, ala Clark, then I reckon we'll get our first win. Hopefully Fernandez starts, I'd like to see this side: Dubravka Manquillo Schar Fernandez Lewis Fraser Hayden Shelvey StMaximin Joelinton Wilson But I reckon he'll start Lascelles over Fernandez or Schar and Wi...

Re: Seasons prospects

Football is a funny old game, how many times have we seen sides win games when they have no chance. If we beat Burnley and get some confidence in the side, picking up a shock result against one of Leicester, Liverpool, Man City or Man Utd isn't beyond the realms of possibility. If we can get one sho...

Re: Match Thread: Newcastle v Norwich

Clark is an absolute f***ing cronut. The first mistake is just a mistake and fair enough mistakes happen but the second mistake to the haul him down is f***ing ridiculous and absolutely inexcusable. It's an acceptable decision when you're 1-0 up with 90 seconds to play, ot when it's 0-0 with 9 minut...

Re: Seasons prospects

If we can beat Norwich and Burnley I'll be a lot more confident of staying up. This is a massive week of football us and things could change drastically. If we beat Norwich on Tuesday, Wolves beat Burnley on Wednesday, we beat Burley on Saturday and Spurs beat Norwich on Sunday we'll be 3 points cle...

Re: match day thread - NUFC v Brentford

Overall that was much better. Good to see us trying to get on the front foot for once. First time we've actually pressed the ball since the Pardew days. Probably the best game Shelvey has ever played for us, certainly the best in a long time. J7 also had his best game in a Newcastle shirt (despite f...

Re: New Manager: Eddie Howe Confirmed

Based on his press conference, I reckon the team will be something like this tomorrow, possibly more of a 4-4-1-1 with Big Joe dropping deeper than Wilson to link up play. Darlow Manquillo Lascelles Fernandez Ritchie StMaximin Hayden Shelvey Fraser Joelinton Wilson He said Shelvey would be key for u...

Re: The F1 Thread

If it was the other way round Hamilton would have got a 5 sec penalty.

FIA seem to have a narrative that they're desperate to play out.

Re: New Manager: Eddie Howe Confirmed

This policy is never going to come into place anyway. It's a load of rubbish based on lazy journalism. Even if they were thinking of implementing this policy, as soon as we made a good offer for a player a club is wanting to sell, they'll take a look at how f***ed thier finances are due to covid (an...

Re: New Manager: Eddie Howe Confirmed

Players look knackered <laugh> At least he'll get them fot if nothing else. Good to see him training with a bit of intensity. Mind Shelvey won't have a clue what to do now he's not allowed to just stand still. https://youtu.be/OOaul0faEUw https://twitter.com/CraigHope_DM/status/1458160513238581248?t...

Re: New Manager

I think people are overreacting massively about the new owners not having a clue. They literally went from no deal to owning the club 48 hours after the court case; nobody expected it to happen that quickly. They’ve been in for what, 3 weeks? We’re in an awful position in the league and the whole c...

If it's true we've managed to convince Emery it was definitely worth the wait. Would be a real statement of intent.

Re: New Manager

I've never understood how Sky can be allowed to run 'stories' about next managers etc. whilst having their own betting firm. They could completely fabricate anything and it will inevitably lead to some people lumping money on it, even if there's no foundation to the story whatsoever. Surely some fo...
