Re: The F1 Thread

Really good read. He's been my favourite ever F1 driver so I'm biased, but he's the best for me.

Re: Federico Fernandez 6m Done Deal

Being a captain is more than just what you do on the pitch, off the pitch I can only recall seeing him do one post match TV interview. He's supposed to represent the team and the club in victory and defeat, part of a captains role is to do those kind of things. Whether we got hammered (as we did, e...

Colo was a s*** captain but for a few years he was a top defender.

Rashford is not a good player.
Or he's been played out of position and constantly rotated under Mourinho in a team that gets dominated in possession by Leicester.

Like TBC says he's never a 9. Makes all the wrong runs and just isn't a good enough finisher. He scores less than Ayoze.

Leicester in general look good, shame they gave away a stupid penalty.

Re: Other Clubs Transfers Summer 2018/19

<dotheameobi> Plenty of places reporting that Burnley are going to sign Joe Hart. Bizarre move for both, 3rd choice at best. Pope is injured, what about Heaton? Is he still injured? If so Hart could play. They may also want more experience for their European games. From Hart's perspective he's not g...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2018)

Bamford had one good Champ season in 14-15 in a good side. Other than that he's been completely average at best. He was just an example, Liverpool got £12.5m for their 4th choice keeper even though he only played 3 games for them(2 PL games in his entire career). In a market where prices are inflate...

Re: "The Magpie Group" open letter to Ashley

Just about every fan page on twitter has released a statement. It's embarrassing. Things aren't particularly good but it's not the crisis that people are making it seem.

Re: Do you think Rafa will walk

I don't think we'll replace him with better when he leaves in May. But just because we're not getting better it doesn't mean that I'm going to kid myself and pretend he's staying here out of loyalty and love for the fans. I don’t believe this either, he’ll leave in the summer. Separate to you criti...

Exactly. I just hope when Rafa does walk next summer and we end up with Malky Mackay that Alf never moans once, as this is as good as it gets.
