Re: Match day thread - NUFC v Spurs

Though Joelinton was one of our better players in that first half.

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v Spurs

Going to be an interesting game today. Could lose easily or we could go out and do what we did to them in our last relegation season. Think the players will be well up for it, SJP will be back to its best. Spurs could very easily be intimidated by the occasion. No matter the result I think I'll enjo...

Re: Minority of not, some of our fans are embarrassing right now

Speaking of journos on Twitter, I've just been approached by a Mail on Sunday one asking if he can DM me. f***ing hell, I was conflicted enough going on Sunday, never mind engaging with the f***ing Mail... https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-10099377/Newcastle-Amid-turmoil-Amanda-Sta...

Re: New Manager

I'm wondering if during their hour long discussion they came to a compromise. Steve we want to replace you but don't have anybody lined up ready for the Spurs game. As its your 1000th game we understand you would like to be in charge for that. How about you have that game and then resign with your ...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

Seen a few links to Niklas Süle over the past few days, doubt we could pry him from Bayern even though his contract is coming to an end.

Re: New Manager

Looking at everyone linked, maybe we will see Rangnick in as interim manager until January, see how it's going, if well stays as manager until the summer where we then move him up to sporting director and appoint a long term manager to work with him.

Re: New Manager

People may not like it but the way this is panning out is the right move imo, I think if he's here after Palace then my stance may change. But for now I'm happy with slow and steady, I'd probably like to see a Sporting Director by middle of next week at the least though.

Re: Minority or not, some of our fans are embarrassing right now

The way I see it, we have been hated for a while, clubs like Everton and Villa seemingly invented a rivalry with us. We have been called everything under the sun by pundits and the media. I became immune to most criticism a long while ago, this new wave is not unexpected and nothing more than what I...

Also I know this will sound like victim blaming but Luke Edwards is a smart guy, he's a heavy Twitter user, he knows the environment, but he still pokes the bear with fans on a daily basis, he acts like a prick and trolls a lot himself so I find it a bit rich that he's somehow surprised he's receiv...

Re: Minority of not, some of our fans are embarrassing right now

The simplistic nature of Twitter is part of the problem, it allows these and other idiots to just create a platform to be a prick, this is more prevalent now more than ever imo so most on Facebook for example (not that it doesn't have it's issues) will have an established page with all their mates o...

Re: New Manager

Problem is you are going off the assumption that Bruce is going to be kept on for months rather than a week or two. There is nothing risky about taking our time especially when it's on our side, it's not like we are down to the final few games of the season and are In desperate times.

Re: New Manager

I'm in no rush for Bruce to go, let's face it there is plenty of games left, it would be stupid to rush in a replacement then have to potentially replace them in a few months time, I'd rather we get it right first time. I'm happy if we focus on a DoF/Chief Exec for now, we need to get that upper off...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

I'd honestly be happy with Manquillo as RB for the rest of the season. LB is definitely something we need to sort out, I'd love 2 CBs but would be happy with just one, then must solidifying the midfield and getting competition for Wilson up top.

Re: New Manager

I can see him taking charge at Spurs, if that's the case I'm honestly not that bothered. I don't think any change between now and Sunday is going to impact the result so maybe not much to gain by changing things this week. It will give them some breathing space to choose the right replacement and le...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

I'd be happy with Tarkowski, Ball playing CB, Tagliafico, Kamara, would love van de Beek, and a striker, maybe Belotti is doable. I think that team would see us comfortably safe around mid table. Obviously we are stuck with the current squad so will depend on our points come January. Like I say I do...
