Re: New Manager

Overmars linked with a DoF role at the club, he’s currently doing it at Ajax.

That would be an absolutely superb appointment.

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

Coady linked today…presumably based on nothing. Would definitely prefer Tarkowski personally.

Re: Match Thread: Crystal Palace (A)

I don’t think anyone could expect us to be miraculously better after 3 days without Bruce at the helm. Yes we need points but if offered a point at a palace side who have looked decent this season before the match I’d definitely have taken it. Burnley and Norwich at home in a month or so are absolut...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

Seeing it reported in certain areas of the press that other Premier League clubs will refuse to do business with us in the January window in the hope we get relegated - we'll see, money often talks louder than words! Haha a) clubs are greedy and b) players / agents have a lot of power. Would Burnle...

Re: Bruce love in.

He's got an almost identical record to Rafa whilst in charge of us... Only thing that's annoyed me about him is his attitude, like we all wanted him to fail and he wasn't backed, which is arse because no NUFC fan wants failure and he's had tens of millions to spend. Not the right man to take us for...

Re: Bruce love in.

Because we’re the only fans in the history of football to ever want a poor manager out of our club, nobody else has ever done it, this is why everyone is so shocked. Wonder if it will ever happen again or if it’s a one off?

Re: New Manager

Depends ultimately if the person in charge wanted to listen. He was part of the England coaching setup for the EUROs so must have something at least. Clearly he's getting respect from people. Guess my point is that he either had good ideas and maybe didn't assert himself enough, or didn't have new ...

Re: New Manager

He came across really well, night and day compared to Bruce, felt there were a few insights into the changes, especially when he said that everyone knows their role tactically and what they are doing. Could be seen as a dig as Bruce was always criticised over players not really knowing their roles....

You mean he didn't come out implying fans were all thick as s***? That's refreshing.

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

Just getting in a left back that is better than Ritchie or Lewis would be a good start and shouldn't be difficult. Dummett returning would do but he seems to be perma-crocked. Add Tarkowski a decent CM and a striker and it should be enough in my opinion so long as we have a halfway competent manage...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

Any English players we go after we will just get bent over a barrel with. It was bad enough before the Grealish transfer, now you have to factor in our ownerships wealth and the fact they all practically hate us now. People like Tarkowski would be our best bet when their contracts are running down....

Re: The Everton Question?

Basically whatever stat Everton fans want to look at they’re in the shadow or Liverpool and will never match them in any way, so you can see why they’ve got a chip on their shoulders.

Re: New Manager

Chris Sutton isn’t really ITK…

I thought Emery was quite badly treated at Arsenal and did okay, certainly better than Arteta. The fans hounded him out (shocking, I thought according to the media no manger had ever been hounded out before Bruce…).

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

I still wouldn’t mind Sarr from Chelsea who we were linked with in summer, young and looks to have a lot of talent.
