Re: Kevin Keegan - “I came up against a wall of incompetence, deceit & arrogance”

**** me, Xisco was on £60k a week 10 years ago!! Probably Shelvey is our only player on that amount now. And YouTube scouting Gonzalez <laugh> Ifirc Colo was on about 100k a week when we went down think he was our highest paid player during that season. I read something that he was on more then the...

You couldn't make it up

Denis Wise just seems like a weasely little ****. I've thankfully never come across him during my time scouting and hope after reading that I never will.

Re: Kevin Keegan - “I came up against a wall of incompetence, deceit & arrogance”

Looking forward to this alright, all the books I've read which deal with Newcastle (Bartons, Givens) the current regime don't come across as great, I think Keegan will blow those two out of the water with how incompetent they are.

Re: Holidays

Yep i'm currently a scout for Bohemians, played for them in my youth but got a bad injury and they took me on as part of their scouting team for youngsters in the Leinster area, it kind of evolved from there into an international scout for them going over to youth tournament around Europe as part of...

Re: Better Call Saul

SpoilerShow

And the cracks in Kim/Jimmy relationship are starting to widen, that montage at the start was brilliant and the look on her face when he told her about selling the mobile phones you can tell she'll be gone soon.

Still think she'll be killed off somehow

I'd say unless an official press release is released by Ashley I call this nonsense

Re: Bullying in Sport

There's a big difference between being disciplined and exacting in preparation, and just being an asshole stirring up s*** for his own pleasure. Yes, this. Sounds like he acts like some sort of jumped up drill sergeant from a Vietnam war movie. Pretty much sums up Keane alright. A lot of rumours (h...

Is that a positive though?
I think you have to look at that as a positive because our negative goal difference is actually more positive then the negative we all expected.

Re: Match day - NUFC v Arsenal

Missed the match as I was traveling, from the updates on here we were OK is the first half but then faded after Arsenal scored. And of course the usual Joselu couldn't finish his dinner. I'll agree that we've had a tough start but we've also not been hammered in any of the games which is good, Palac...

Re: Best Newcastle squad

Yeah Carroll done very well for us but I remember the likes of Shearer, Cole, Sir Les Tino and Bellamy in their prime for us. I'm not sure why I didn't mention him in my extended panel though as I did with Cisse and Ba. Perhaps as you say it was because of how he left similar to Debuchy but also tha...
