They're both dinosaurs that have got zero trust in young players.
Not true. Bruce signed a young lad called Alex Bruce for a few different clubs <whistle>
<laugh> Just wait, that'll be our deadline day signing.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2020)

Could there be a reason behind not playing him though? You've got to ask yourself why did two experienced coaches in Rafa and Bruce not pick him regularly? Tactically inept? Unable to see potential in players? Or was there something they see every day that us as fans don't? They're both dinosaurs t...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2020)

Would we expect to play Sessegnon at LB, if we did sign him? He seemed to struggle when at Fulham in the prem in that position, not to say there weren't other factors. He excelled the most in the championship when he switched to left forward, scored and created a hat full I seem to recall. Would li...

Anyone else in the “don’t give a s*** about this” camp now or just me?
I don't give a s*** about the takeover. Want the Premier League corruption to come out though. I think that's been a long time coming and this could be the thing that brings it all out.

Re: Toon Takeover Thread - PIF Pull Out, Reuben Brothers still interested...?

I think you seriously underestimate how companies feel about bad publicity. So you really think Budweiser, Tag Heuer, Nike, Coca Cola etc. are going to worry about some pissed off Newcastle fans who didn't get their own way? Most of these businesses will be involved in dodgy s*** way bigger than wh...

Re: Toon Takeover Thread - PIF Pull Out, Reuben Brothers still interested...?

I think you seriously underestimate how companies feel about bad publicity. Sure, but I don't think the sponsors are going to now change their tune so that Newcastle fans stop writing up transparently bad online reviews. I've no doubt they were more afraid of the bad publicity of potential associat...

Just when you thought it couldn't get any more embarrassing, Newcastle fans are now writing negative Trustpilot reviews for PL sponsors. Hitting these companies where it really hurts <laugh>.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2020)

We’ve got too many “okay” players. We’ll turn into Stoke if we’re not careful. Couple of flair players and a load of “he works hard” type players. This. We already have too much average/deadwood players in the squad. You don't want to be adding more of it and then wondering why we're still a s*** t...

😫😫 I f***ing hate fulham, boring grounds, boring kit, boring name, boring name. Even their manager looks as generic as anything. Says a lot when the biggest thing in their club history is that Michael Jackson statue. In fairness, a Michael Jackson statue is that **** crazy that it would be the bigg...

Wolves are the more hipster team, it costs quite a bit to look hipster. Brentford are more grunge than anything else, perhaps underground western indie?
Is there a Jazz team?

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2020)

Wouldnt be the first striker to score loads in the Championship and flop in the Prem but £18m isn't much these days. I think we need someone with more physical presence myself, watched his goals compilation on Youtube and he seems like a real poacher - lots of tap ins and counter attacks. Counter a...

Re: Championship Playoff final Brentford v Fulham

If Fulham do hold on then they need to sign a lot of players. Really not a good side. Signing a lot of players was their mistake last time. Should have tried to sign a few quality players rather than loads of dross. Think they need to sign better players than last time. At the minute they've got a ...

Great improvisation but so poor from the keeper
The Mitro effect. Throttle the CB so the keeper think the action will be in the middle then let Bryan shoot.

Re: Championship Playoff final Brentford v Fulham

I am surprised he hasn't come on already, I'm guessing he's not fully fit. Maybe Parker wants to use him as a final ten minutes weapon to really hammer at tired Brentford legs. Tactics are clearly set up to stretch Brentford so far and control that midfield. Yeah he missed the semi with injury and ...
