Re: Match thread - Everton v NUFC

Everton are playing well - I can't see Newcastle getting anything from this one. 2-0

Nope. We could do a lot better.
We need to let this guy go. It didn't work out last time.

Re: Jetro Willems available for 10 million

Tough break on Jetro, looked better than most we've had in that position for the past 10 years.

Re: Newcastle defenders Dummet and Willems out for season

And it sounds like the team are focusing on CM signings in the wake of inadequate cover for defensive and attacking positions.

I mean, we still f***ing have Saivet on the books - do they learn nothing?

Re: Match day thread - Chelsea v NUFC

As most predicted, this was always going to be a horrible season of horrible football, ruined by allowing the manager and the goals to leavein the summer. The 0.2 Expected Goals stat from Saturday's performance is the most obvious and quotable statistic. I honestly don't see where the goals will com...

Re: Match thread - Leicester v NUFC

It's clear he's not capable and never was. Fired by November, and whomever comes in won't save the team either.

Re: Carroll out for the season

Considering the size of the cheer on Saturday, clearly a significant chunk of the fanbase have come to the realisation that Carroll is a worthless knacker and doesn't warrant an expectation of more than 3 goals of contribution this season, if that. He was signed as a third choice striker - the idea ...

Re: Holidays

Estonia? Thinking of a weeks holiday flying into Tallin and a 2 day stay via ferry to Helsinki in mid-August. Isn't that Baltics and not Balkans? Going to Krakow in a couple of months, anyone got any recommendations? Whenever anyone mentions SW Poland I'm always brought to think of this: https://en...

Anyone interested in rationalising this one? I'm not suggesting impropriety but the facts of the circumstance may lead to people jumping to that conclusion

Re: Loan Updates

Woodman sounds like he's more likely to go down the Fraser Forster path. I can't see him taking the no. 1 jersey from Dubravka, even though I wouldn't complain if they trialled him in that position, as I actually don't think Dubravka is anything special compared to other Premier League goalkeepers.

Hugo Viana was the next Figo, Bruno Cheyrou was the next Zidane!
True, and it was invalidated speculation, but there was more of an expectation than signing a guy and leaving him in the reserves / sent out on loan.

Re: Pointless Transfers...

Point: to get paid more. By a club with better facilities, more resources and likely better staff. He probably knew he had no chance to break through, but he also probably knew he couldn't pass up the very slim chance he could. I remember him arriving with a reputation of being a wonderkid so I don...

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

I would actually speculate that he isn't good enough to warrant a Championship club taking on his Premier League level wages, whatever those are.

I imagine this was a fallback deal, hence being signed on the last day.

Only 43k at the Watford match, our smallest PL gate since 2012 (according to NUFC.com)...was there a secret boycott, more stayed away from this than they did the boycotts against Arsenal and Spurs <laugh> I guess additionally it should be considered that this is a less glamorous fixture for a team ...

Re: League Cup: Leicester (h)

I can see Fernandez holding his place for Saturday to give Jamal at three week break to recover. I wouldn't be concerned. I think Clark deputised fine too, always was a steady hand and a corner goal threat. Both should be retained Very good for Muto to get a goal, regardless of how it was scored - w...

Can we play them next pre season too? Ideally after they sign Jonas and Demba Ba?
Or maybe someone else can join Colo at San Lorenzo?
Colback and Saivet off the wage bill would be great. I'm happy to pack their bags for them <run>

Re: Match Thread - Spurs v NUFC

Good grief, he's fine as a back-up. I've thought him to have covered some of the most ground through two weeks. I don't think he's good enough for the role he was put in, and it clearly put other players out of position, but I didn't find his effort to be the problem in those matches at least. I co...

Re: Match Thread - Spurs v NUFC

As a big Rafa fan I got to say I think we don't win that with him in charge, yes we were defensive but I wouldn't say it was in a negative manner, once we broke them down we were always looking to get forward, even towards the end of the game, I think it was one of our free kicks towards the end, w...

Re: Match thread - Spurs v NUFC

No one is looking forward to or expecting anything more than a shower of s*** performance on Sunday. A draw would be a huge plus, a win currently unfathomable.

3-0 to Spurs, if we're lucky.
