Intertoto Cup definitely isn’t Tier B, more like D.
It's still a trophy!
Strictly speaking it's a plaque. Or a big tile.

Re: Newcastle 2019-20 Fixtures

The reason for the non televised games at 3pm is to protect the attendances of the lower league clubs which is an absolute necessity I know why the rule is in place, but I'd like to see it trialed to see if it did have a negative effect on attendances of lower league clubs. I think that most people...

Money spinning friendlies overseas those weekends then? Should have done it the same time as the Spanish "Winter break" to maximise those revenues...

Re: Newcastle 2019-20 Fixtures

Re: Iron Mike lands managment role!

Exactly. There's a mindset among some football fans that unless you're a club legend you're a bit of a joke. Aaron Hughes retired today, and I bet you wont hear a bad word from fans who actually watched him play week in week out at any of his clubs, despite not being exactly spectacular anywhere.

Mate.

At this moment in time. I would take big bird and the cookie monster as new owners over that Big Calculator selling potato of a man.
If they don't know we like Friday announcements they can **** right off.

So we're fundamentally incompatible as a club/owner relationship. Call it off.
