Re: The next manager?

Re: Other Clubs Transfer Deals (Summer 2019)

I guess we'll see if Rondon stays longer than their first big player signing (Gaitin). But he and Rafa will enjoy their sweet, sweet Wanda money (I'm not judging players or managers for getting paid). I find it hard to judge but I guess it's more my competitive personality. I'd want to compete at a...

right? I'm constantly baffled at how poor pro players can be at PK's. Luis freaking Suarez just had an awful kick over the weekend that got Uruguay eliminated from Copa America.

Re: Perez Leaving

and so the purge goes on. This tweet from Andrew sums it up for me https://twitter.com/ADMusgrove/status/1146168248859340800 25 goals gone. No proven PL scorers. No manager. Transfer window has been open for a month plus and we haven't signed anyone, and the end of that streak appears to be nowhere ...

Re: The next manager?

I'm so apathetic over all this now, I've always tried to remain positive and interested through all of Mike Ashley's reign, through the worst of the pardew/carver/mcclaren years, but now I just feel fully defeated, I honestly don't care we have no manager, no coaches, no transfers, a depleted squad...

Re: The next manager?

and look how he was treated after getting the club back to the PL and back-to-back mid-table finishes. I fail to see how that doesn't scare good managers from coming to NUFC. Van Bronckhorst's outspoken interest on the job is actually somewhat of a red flag to me As the second sentence in my post s...

Re: The next manager?

Who is going to come in here with strings attached to all limbs? Seriously guys. The only reason a manager would come here is for money and a nice leather seat in his office. I just went into the kitchen and washed my hands. Was a short and sweet journey registering on this forum. But alas. My pati...

Gayle/Muto partnership up front is gonna lit up the league.
It would be quite nice to see Muto play to be fair.
agreed, it's just so much uncertainty about what the style/formation will be and whether the new manager will even rate him <erk>

Re: Rafa leaving official confirmation

the transfer window got going at the beginning of June, is that right? so 24 days in we have no manager, the dark cloud of hope we may get rid of Ashley, no clue as to whether the club has a replacement lined up for Rafa, no hope any manager actually wants to come here with all the uncertainty, and ...

Re: Kit Thread 19/20

I have to say I really wanted to pull the trigger all of this past season on a Rondon jersey but the questions about whether he'd be here for more than a season kept me from shooting.

World Cup 2022 to have 32 teams, not 48

big freaking deal. I love it. Will be harder for Venezuela to qualify for their first ever, but the idea of 48 team is so idiotic.

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

I'll say it, I'd rather have Mata than Perez. But Mata was maybe my favourite player in the world while he was playing with Valencia...so I'm biased. I mean, you state it as if it'd be some ludicrous opinion that would cause the rest of us to want to crucify you. I think it's pretty obvious Mata is...

Re: Playoffs

Hughton being linked to WBA. Would be a good appointment for that. Proven in that league and in terms of promotions. I'm sure he's no fan of the ownership but might even do us a favour with Rondon? <awe> there's some bad beef between Hughton and the WBA fan base https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/footb...

Re: Salomon Rondon to sign this weekend? -- Salomon Swapped!

well WBA will be staying in the Championship after losing in PKs to Villa so Rondon's price tag should be confirmed at 16.5 million.

Re: Salomon Rondon to sign this weekend? -- Salomon Swapped!

Either way if we're going to persist with this formation the idea that we'd play Manquillo and Yedlin in advanced roles is terrifying... neither one of them can really cross a good ball into the box so it really limits their effectiveness in the WB role. I'm not asking for Ritchie-like crosses from...
