Re: European super league

I only hope it didn't all end so quickly that big fat punishment's won't be dished out. I'm sort of in two minds, I feel for the fans of these clubs who have no say, but I'm also here for all the entertainment. And big fat punishments are the next step. I know what you mean, i've been dreaming up p...

Re: European super league

It’s laughable how Sky, BT and the people they pay to present / commentate are so outraged by this when they’ve been part of the problem for decades now. Sky are the founding members of the “take football away from the fans” brigade, Neville, Lineker etc. take multimillion pound salaries. They all ...

Re: European super league

If they wanna run football clubs like businesses and create anti-competitive coalitions then hit them with some anti-competition fines each and every time they compete, and distribute that amongst the 86 other teams + grassroots football. I think a fine of circa £350m each time would be a nice figure

Re: European super league

The backlash to this has been delightful. I don’t think I’ve ever seen football fans come together in such a united manner. Fans, pundits, ex-players. Glorious. These idiots who have agreed to it are so inconceivably stupid and greedy it beggars belief. They don’t understand that these football busi...

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v WHU

I'm not sure how good he is, but what a loan signing Willock has been. That kid gets into all the right areas. His goals today and against Spurs are currently the difference between the breathing room we have and being in the position where it would most likely all come down to the final game of th...

Re: Mikel Merino: 'I am who I am because of the Premier League'

He’s basically the player we’re missing at the minute. Had his off days but generally our best CM when he was here. Disappointed we lost home but he does well. Nice that he remembers his time here fondly

I'll tune in until we have our first attempt on target and then I'll do something more productive.

Re: Steve Bruce: The Gloves are off

How’s the bacon did ye say? Seems like he’s in the middle of trying to save his own. Such a blatant deflection of criticism onto the players. Poor tactic from him. I’d say, unless something revolutionary goes on behind the scenes which also results in results on the pitch, he has 3-5 games. Those ar...

Lewis was rattled with that early coming together with Furlong. Kept trying to play the man and not the ball after that. Also, is he naturally right footed?
I would imagine left footed based on his attempted clearance for their goal

Re: Premier League going Pay-Per-View, £15/game

Has season ticket money gone out? Given clubs don’t have a clue what’s happening I’d have thought they haven’t sorted season tickets for this year yet. But I’m not a ST holder so could be wrong. Believe Ashley took payments like usual. I’d assume it would be refunded at the end of the season but un...

Re: Premier League going Pay-Per-View, £15/game

So currently some Newcastle fans might be paying circa £60 to watch a game on TV? £25 season ticket price per game + £20 for sky sports + £15 for PPV. Insanity

Re: VAR and the latest handball rules

Think they should at the least add a clause that it should only be a penalty if the arm blocks the ball from going at goal/to an attacking player. Seems ridiculous that a ball could be destined to hit a defender in the hip but because their arm is outstretched it hits that first and so would be a pe...
