Re: Match thread - Leicester v NUFC

It's quite liberating, once you've weaned yourself off the NUFC fix. This season I've seen two 10 second You Tube goal clips ( Joelinton v Spurs and Willems against Liverpool), listened to the Watford game until Schar got subbed, and about 20 mins of Brighton then I fell asleep. I have purposely avo...

Re: Return of Andy Carroll

FFWD: 17 May 2020, last game v Liverpool .. Andy Carroll rises like phollosus ( a cross between a phoenix and a collosus ) , to head in the 87th minute winner in a 4-3 thriller that breaks Liverpool hearts, hands Man City their Hatrick of titles, takes Carrolls goals tally for the season to four, an...

Re: Boycott

Not really for me to comment, living in Swansea ( but I will <laugh> ) - mostly away games for me, but I genuinely can't see what the problem people have with missing JUST ONE GAME ? Would it really be the end of the world ? Appreciate people want to see the new team, but would it kill anyone to wai...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

Now that we've got the other players in, think Carroll coming back on a play-to-play wouldn't be a bad option, to be used as the proverbial battering ram off the bench when needed with Shelvy, Longstaff, Miggy, St Maximin , Willems.. on paper at least, plenty of service to feed him, if SuperStevesSi...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

They should take some of that black paint and paint an unbroken 8 inch wide black line all the way around SJP - then when a signing is done, the press can take a photo of said player star jumping over the line wearing a cheesy grin, like some dungaree wearing dancer from Summertime Special (ask you ...

PSG Left Back N'Soki is available for 7million - apparently he was a Rafa target last season and we tried to get him on loan, but he decided to stay and try and get into the first team , which obviouslly hasn't happened for him. Don't know anything about him other than the price will probably scream...

Re: Joelinton to sign tomorrow?

If it's true Bruce has a £ 90m kitty, and bearing in mind we need at least 4 or 5 players, is almost half of it too much to lump on one player - especially as it's probably a Gini Widjnaldum 'stepping stone' kind of signing on the players/agents and Ashleys part - he'll have to be some player to mak...

Will Bruce be allowed to manage NUFC while Legal Action is pending ? Or are we in a state of limbo until any Court Case is resolved ?

Foolishly optimistic Friday ..

There are rumours that if the BZG takeover is completed (Supposedly going through fit and Proper test) that they'd be open to bringing Rafa back. in terms of Mourinho he'd want to be taking a pay drop to come to Newcastle. He was on 15m a year at Man U, Rafa was on 6m Source? These are the scurrilo...

If Charnely is contacting people about the job, then isn't that all the evidence we need that there is no takeover ? Who in their right mind would enter into discussions about a job, knowing that new owners were imminent and bringing their own man in ? A (sane) person surely would only enter into ne...
