Re: Ashley Agrees to Sell Newcastle for £350m!

If unprofessional business men hadnt slipped the tongue. We would all be sitting here in threads about no new players or Rafa contracts. Instead we at least know that it is apparent a takeover is taking place. Lets ride the train. This guy might not have a pot to piss in, as far as we all know. He ...

I can't remember watching a worse CL final than this.
Was absolutely terrible. But I'll propose a comparable one - that nil-nil Chelsea vs. Bayern match stands out as the worst in recent memory.
It was 1-1.

Re: Ashley Agrees to Sell Newcastle for £350m!

Andre Onana; Fabian Schar, Fabian Lejeune, Dan-Axel Zagadou; Achraf Hakimi, Junior Firpo; Sean Longstaff, Mehdi Abeid; Pedro Munitis, Diego Tristan, Albert Luque.

PERFECT XI.

Huddersfield are one of the worst sides in PL history yet everyone seems keen to take their players <scratch>
Aye. Don't get all these other suggestions. I'd take Billing but Pritchard and Mounie are both s****.

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

The quickest comparison between the two on WyScout. Don't have time to go overboard. Hayden averages 42.98 passes/90 mins with a success rate of 84.6%. Also averages 5.84 interceptions per 90. Billing averages 45.98 passes/90 mins with a success rate of 83.4%. Also averages 6.9 interceptions per 90....

With Huddersfield all but relegated, does anyone else think we should look at Philip Billing as a Hayden replacement? Looks to have a lot of potential and is a huge physical presence too
I think Billing is brilliant. I'd definitely have him at Newcastle.

Re: Match day thread - Toon vs Everton

Newcastle fan on BBC Newcastle 'surprised Schar wasn't sent off after kicking out at Digne'. What the **** is he on about? Just before half time there was a bit of a ruck. Ritchie put a cross in and the ref pointed for a corner but two of their players ended up down near the hoardings. Schar looked...

Re: Match day thread - West Ham v Toon

Poor refereeing.

Snodgrass escapes a yellow.

Diop obstructs Lejuene for cross which leads to penalty. Poor.

Re: Match day thread - West Ham v Toon

Schar was s*** there. He’s better going forward but Fernandez is a better defender. No real pressure to get anything today tho. [/b] This is one of the games we can afford to have a ''off-day'' so not too bothered if we don't win, a point would be good but performances have to be consistent too. I ...

Defence has to do better. Keeper has to come and get it. Dropped 6 yards out.

Re: Signing #1: Martin Dubravka

For lack of a better place to put it. Has Darlow's injury or exile from the match squad potentially caused Dubravka to make mistakes? With the last month or two leading to Woodman being the teams substitute goalkeeper, has this led to Dubravka perhaps being a little bit complacent? I believe that Da...

You just know we're going to lose to Huddersfield. Beat Man City, lose to Huddersfield. Would be such an NUFC thing to do.
yeah but the league is measured by saves made not points earned. so wouldnt worry about it.

Re: Match thread - Wolves v Toon

Doesn't really matter though. If a striker won you 10 games at the start of the season then had a string of games where he did **** all... does he stay in the team? Nar. It's about form. Can't continuously say he's done this and that in 2018 when it's 2019 now and he's f***ed 3 games for us out of ...

Re: Match thread - Wolves v Toon

Dubravka now has 3 mistakes (if we can count that as a mistake - as well as a foul) leading to a goal. Joint highest this season in the Premier League alongside Begovic, Pickford and Leno.

Re: Match thread - Wolves v Toon

Although I think Dubravka should have done better with the goal I will make one excuse for him, in that one of the defenders should have read the situation and taken the opportunity to take up a position right behind the keeper to stop any Wolves' players from being able to challenge him from behin...
