I'd much prefer 3 regular subs +2 youth player subs. I've wanted something similar for a while and I think this is the perfect moment
I like the idea of this much more. 2 subs who are U21 and homegrown. Really would encourage development of academies.

Re: Match day - Man City v Newcastle United

Why would Bruce think that the tactics that failed so miserably in the FA Cup would work tonight? He changed them though. That's kinda the problem. Switched to a back four without proper centre-backs. And we can't keep the ball. Would be better off doing the same as the other day and hoping Fabian ...

Re: Match day thread - Bournemouth v NUFC

Except for that goal at the end (typical Gosling goal, I’m sure he only ever scored consolations for us too), that was a pretty perfect performance. Finally saw some decent games from Lazaro and Bentaleb - both were good. Longstaff was great till his hammy went, Almiron played well too, but of cours...

Lazaro looks exciting.
I assume this is sarcasm...?

I’ve been so disappointed with him since he joined.

Schär looking off the pace here. Not sure how we change it up without becoming defensively incredibly vulnerable though

Need much more from ASM and Almiron - right now our outball is awful, but they’re it’s not sticking when they do get it either

Re: Toon Takeover Thread

A lot of rumours going around that the Premier League are very close to giving approval. Apparently there is a Premier League board meeting scheduled today. ...There is but it's going to mostly be about scheduling the transfer window. The Premier League board is the 20 club chief execs + Richard Ma...

Re: Matchday Thread: Newcastle v Sheffield Utd

Brilliant win, everybody was good except Danny Rose. Great to see Joelinton score, hopefully that’ll help him relax a bit. Slowed down a lot at the end, but that’s probably good in terms of not overworking the players, given the volume of games coming up. I reckon a win against Villa and we’re safe ...

Yeah. But who else. Kraft? Manquillo from right back..

Re: Mackems

Apparently BZG (who were looking at buying Newcastle) are now in for them. If someone has a huge pile of money and wants to throw it at a football club then Sunderland are one of the best options out there on the face of it. Huge fanatical fanbase, big ground, good facilities, decent history etc. H...

Absolutely. No chance he - or any other player with serious criminal allegations over their heads - should be playing football.
