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

Linked with Donny Van De Beek, looks a quality player, unfortunately been liked with much better and much more organised club than us.

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

I can't see anything happening soon, once again we will be going into pre season with complete uncertainty, no new players, potentially no manager, complete confusion over who the owner will actually be, it's all a bit ridiculous really, seriously we are probably the most unorganised club when it co...

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

My biggest concern with this is the way Ashley conducts his business, he's enough of a cronut to insist on Sports Directs being still embedded in some way with the club, I honestly believe what we know is only the tip of the iceberg, I fear a takeover will reveal a lot of shady deals that benefits h...

Re: Women's World Cup France 2019

Definitely. They represent the most famous female (team) athletes in the US, going back to the days of Mia Hamm, with a great collegiate system and a lot of investment. Have had some really unlikable stars (if you're not American, or maybe even if you are) over the past few years though - looking a...

Women's World Cup France 2019

Watched the game on Sunday and have to say it's the first time in a long time I've enjoyed an England football match. Watching them and seeing the passion and hunger of some of the players made me actually want to get behind the team (no lawro). Unfortunately it seems the women's game still attracts...

Personally I don't think it's linked, I find it hard to believe that would be the first action of new owners.

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

Lee Marshall basically told people yesterday he isn't allowed to comment, and that even saying he can't comment is probably pushing it a little, so something is definitely in the works, you don't silence club officials on something that isn't real. It just looks like it's a matter of time, I won't b...

Re: Jose Antonio Reyes killed in car crash

Reports that he was driving at 140mph and suffered a blow out. If proven true, sympathy will be in much shorter supply. I remember growing up a family friend with a Corvette took me for a ride (I've always been a huge car enthusiast). Anyhow, he got it up to 120mph on a country road but immediately...

This is a potential overhype like the one few years back about Jocelyn Gourvennec. When someone with the same physique and sneakers was at the SJP.

It's a photo from 7 years ago, doubt it's been in the pipeline that long. <laugh>

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

If there's no updates this week then i call BS on the whole thing. “Apparently” the paperwork was submitted to the premier league on Wed last week and it takes around two weeks. Im clinging on to that so expecting no news for a while . I'm practically in the same boat, I don't expect or need to hea...

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

Does anyone else think this is another Mike Ashley smokescreen? Years of cynicism as a fan of this club have taught me to be wary of things like this. It would be just like Mike Ashley to drag this out so that Rafa's contract expires, and then he is snapped up elsewhere.... days before the deal to ...

Re: Boxing Thread

Eddie Hearn has dropped a massive bollock not taking the big fights when he could... there goes his negotiating power. AJ no longer the top draw. He loses the rematch and it could be a couple of years before he gets another shot at the title. You can't make the big fights when you have people like ...

Kinda weird that the only ones handling this with a bit of professionalism is the club itself <laugh> To be honest I'm at the point where I just wish the news hadn't broke, as exciting as the first 24 hours was it's kinda getting annoying now, I just don't get why there has to be a rollercoaster rid...

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

So this guy isn't related to the Man City owner which is a massive relief, it eliminates a lot of questions about conflict of interests, the second bit of news is apparently the club hasn't had proof of funds yet, this doesn't really mean anything imo, not showing proof yet doesn't mean they don't h...
