Have they got coaching badges?
Lend them Rafa's, he doesn't appear to be using them.
They've won more than him as well.

Re: Match day - Man U v NUFC

Rafa has to go, absolutely f***ing shocking again. Awful substations & awful game management. Like every game so far this season. Wind your neck in. World class team with hundreds of millions worth of players. Yeah we were overly negative in the second half, but they figured out how to be a good te...

Why have we decided to come out and sit back? Get after them!
I know it's tough because they're coming at us but we're sending every player back. There's no outlet.

Re: Match thread - NUFC v Leicester

It's not one or the other. Mike Ashley is the biggest problem and has been for a long time. Rafa just isn't as good as people want to believe he is. He's negative and can't motivate the side. Wouldn't surprise me if he lost the dressing room, he's talked the players down enough. Yes it is. Ashley i...

Re: Match thread - NUFC v Leicester

To blame Benitez and not Ashley is insanity. He hasn't been backed, Ashley basically gave him a lump sum at the start of the Championship season and that is still the basis of the squad now, two seasons later. It's insanity and nobody can even begin to suggest that is acceptable. It isn't, and it w...

Re: NUFC v Leicester 28.09.18

We'll play overly defensively and lose 2-1. But GD.

I think Joselu deserves to keep his place but wouldn't mind Muto getting a game in his actual position. Perez will probably be dropped for Ki/Hayden.

Re: Match day - Palace v NUFC

That's not playing statistics, that's counting a season in the Championship <ok> Rafa is a better manager than Pardew without a doubt. However he isn't the elite hero that people think he is. If he managed PSG he'd have Mbappe playing 10 yards in front of his RB and Neymar 10 yards in front of his ...

Re: Match day - Palace v NUFC

On the flip side, Pardew had a better win percentage in the PL for us than Rafa does. We couldn't wait for him to **** off. And Rafa has a 10% better win % overall so statistics can be played how you want them to. It’s pretty f***ing obvious Rafa is a better manager than Pardew and if you’re unwill...

Re: Match day - Palace v NUFC

You could make statements like that about virtually every team in the league last season...Stoke had a very highly rated goalkeeper, a CB with lots of potential, a solid LB, Allen in midfield who's widely praised, Shaqiri has star quality etc. etc. You could. But the people saying Shelvey is better...

Re: Match day - Palace v NUFC

Are many people saying that they want Rafa sacked? Yes there's frustration with seemingly negative tactics, but I don't here many saying it's time for him to go (which would be mental). The only place I've seen it is on here. It goes without saying that it would be complete madness. He did very wel...

Re: WEEKEND FOOTBALL - 14/17 SEPTEMBER 2018

Referee of the Valencia vs Juve had a complete mare. Maybe the worst ref performance I've seen in years. Got the red card decision completely wrong, and 2 out of 3 PKs. When he gave yellows felt pretty random and inconsistent too. Not sure what the red was actually for... but Ronaldo gave him a dec...

Re: Is there ANYTHING positive about NUFC ?

We have had probably the most difficult start to a season playing all the top teams. We have been narrowly beaten 2-1 in each of the games by clubs who spent millions (i know spurs haven't but they have in the past few seasons). When we play the "lesser" teams and aren't taking points I'll then sta...

Re: The Match Tickets Thread

Palace away has gone to public sale. Pretty unusual for a Saturday 3pm kick-off at a small ground not to sell out to ST holders and members, perhaps people are beginning to turn their back and save themselves the best part of £150 or more on an away trip. It's either sold out now or I can't work th...

To be absolutely clear I'm not in the tiny Rafa oot brigade (as opposed to the Tiny Rafa oot brigade who really hate Tiny Rafa), but is he really doing that? His subs as ever were baffling today. As I said prematch I really feel for Murphy who is low on confidence but constantly being stuck at left...
