Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

Despite a lack of goals I've found Joelintons play this season to be pretty decent, he's becoming quite dominant in the air, big problem is he usually gets surrounded by 3 players and loses the ball, everyone loses their s***, but a lot of the time nobody shows for the ball or moves into a passing ...

Re: New Manager

I don't agree with this though. With the money we have and the fact all top managers know they either end up successful and make loads of money or it goes wrong and they get sacked and make loads of money I can't see attracting one being a problem. Those top coaches never struggle to bounce back af...

Re: New Manager

While we might want to target the top names, it's completely unrealistic at the moment IMO. Of course I could be proven wrong and someone like Conte rocks up, but I'd be very surprised. I don't agree with this though. With the money we have and the fact all top managers know they either end up succ...

Re: New Manager

I'd have had Howe pre takeover, but it's pretty uninspiring now. We should be targeting top names, not middling Premier League types who might do a job. The only fear I have with top names, other than they likely wouldn't want the job yet, is that how many of them have had to try and win in the las...

Re: Bruce leaves the club by 'mutual consent'



Full disclosure: I didn't want him to fail, and it was only when it was clear he was a tactically inept cabbage head that I called him a tactically inept cabbage head.

Been going on for years and it's ridiculous. No wonder Merson is how he is.

They let me in. :)

I hadn't even seen that second survey, it was a second hand reference. Might be bollocks.

Re: New Manager

I think one thing people forget around the reasons Allardyce was sacked by us (while saying the fans chased him out as usual) was that aside from the horrible results and style of play, Ashley came in after he was appointed so just having a change was always on the cards. He got about 6 months in th...

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

A massive chunk of our fans are utter f***ing d***s. I'm sure the same can be said for most clubs of course. They are doing exactly what is expected - sticking up for the Saudi regime and slating anyone that criticises it. A lot of what is described as "banter" is just awful. 100% this. Anyone who'...

Re: New Manager

The problem is that I think the players have been up for it a couple of times, they haven't completely downed tools. The issue is a complete lack of tactics and organisation, and that's not going to change. Spurs may look flaky at the moment, but I still reckon they've got far too much for us.

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 ju...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

I did a quick google to see if I'd remembered the "naturally right footed but his dad made him go lefty" story right (I had), and stumbled across this. Amazing.
