Re: ASM and Almiron out until April

Dubravka Krafth -- Lascelles -- Clark -- Lewis Willock Hayden Shelvey Murphy Joelinton --------- Fraser If we persisted with the current formation then I think this can get the job done, I think murphy has the enthusiasm to cover the miggy role. Either that or we go 4-2-3-1 with Gayle up top Also I...

Re: RIP Glenn Roeder

Had a soft spot for Roeder, one of my favourite managers, not the most talented but like Hughton was someone you really wanted to get behind. RIP 🌹🌹

Re: Match thread - NUFC - wolves

Why is everyone pointing the finger at Dubravka? I cant imagine how much stick Krafth would have got if he had completely fell asleep like Hayden did for there goal. I swear our fans judge incidents based on their feeling for individual players, Joelinton is denied a goal by what looks to be handba...

Re: Match thread - NUFC - wolves

I can't quite figure out Haydens role lately, today it seems he's pushing into midfield and attacking midfield with shelvey the one dropping deep.

Re: Summer clear out (relegated or not)????

That Shelvey interview just sums up everything wrong with the club right now and its that nobody can read the room. Bruce and the players are in complete denial.

Re: Summer clear out (relegated or not)????

Normally I like a good old summer ins and outs thread but unless there is a takeover then I have zero faith we do whats needed. I just expect something ridiculous like a new 10yr deal for Shelvey and an 8yr contract for Bruce.

Carroll is long past it, the only thing left that he can do well these days is foul opposition defenders.

Re: Remaining Matches and Points Total

We do have the fixtures to put a little run together, I thought we were competitive against Chelsea and Man Utd and if we can put that into the games against Wolves, Wba, Burnley and Brighton then there are points coming imo. We could even see ourselves safe by the time we get to Liverpool and Arsen...

Re: Match day thread - Man Utd v Newcastle UNITED

Darlow seems to get beaten at his near post a lot. Yes he done well this season but Dubravka is by far the superior keeper for reasons mentioned in the comparison thread.

Re: Match day thread - Man Utd v Newcastle UNITED

Joelinton will replace Gayle. Also it wont happen but I'd like to see Hendrick come in for Shelvey.

Re: Football for the week ahead

I think i could handle being in 17th if we didn't have Bruce laughing his way through interviews and picking fights with anyone who dares question the awful job hes doing. Everyone goes on about Ashley not sacking him but surely Charnley has the power to swing the axe.

Re: Football for the week ahead

Jesus, how wasnt that a penalty to Sheffield? VAR is actually showing how awful our refs are, they used to argue about the pace of the game making it difficult on incidents like that, yet they are given slo mo and a million angles and are still gettin it wrong. We need serious discussions about offi...

Re: Ashley lines up sensational Benitez return

I have the Chron muted on social media, the main players there now are tossers. Final straw for me was when Lee Ryder claimed he had contact with that Henry Mauriss and had inside info on him, he claimed he hasn't shared info about who he actually is because he didn't want/have to, despite the fact ...

Re: Which goalkeeper should start against Man United?

Unfortunatly for Darlow i think we need to play our best team, I think Dubravka betters Darlow in every area, hes more vocal, helps organise the defence and has better distribution, hes probably a better shot stopper too.

Re: Ashley lines up sensational Benitez return

I think the only way that is happening is if there was confirmation the takeover was going to be passed, no way he would come back here if Ashley were to be here next season.

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

Im too cynical to believe a cheap release clause for a pretty highly rated player is only for them to see how they feel at a club. I honestly think its more likely he was trying to get the interest of a top Spanish club. Also if I remember correctly there were links to Spanish clubs not long after h...
