Re: Match days thread - Burnley v NUFC

He still has a way to go to get back to the level he was at when he first broke into the team but shown some good stuff of late (and will be lacking match sharpness). He always looks absolutely knackered to me. But he still covers more ground than anyone and was making tackles all over the pitch at...

Re: The Most Painful Injury Thread

A guy I know was involved in a car crash and was in an induced coma. When he came round he was so blocked up a nurse had to stick her hand up his arse to get things moving <laugh> My ex worked in a hospital and I think that’s referred to as a “manual excavation” <laugh> In my early teens I went a g...

Re: Trust launched 1892 pledge

Seems utterly pointless. Even if the fans raise enough to get 1%, will that matter at all? Feel like it will just give some 'super fans' an even bigger sense of entitlement.

Re: Match thread - Nufc v Spurs

Meant to come on after the game to give my view. Great performance bar the 4 minute period after we scored, should have won that game though I think anyone would have taken a point if offered before the game so can't complain too much. The big test now is if we can play like that against Burnley on...

Re: Match thread - Nufc v Spurs

Shelvey dropped to CB (ish). Allows him to run less and hoof it more. Perfect.

Re: Could it happen? Next manager suggestions

Rumours that Bruce will be offered an extension and pay rise if we stay up.

Steve f***ing Wraith. He was embarrassing with the 'funeral' thing years back and his actions play into the stereotypes about Newcastle. But now he's gone and had Tommy Robinson on his podcast. **** THAT GUY
Backlash has been huge on twitter and he's fully shown his true colours.

Re: NUFC Out of Contract Players: Keep or Ditch?

Seems that Gayle is getting a 3-year contract extension. Slightly surprised given his age (31 now) and Bruce hardly plays him. If we get relegated then he's a good striker to have for next season as that's his level , but would have thought a 12-month / 2 year contract would be more likely. Even wi...

Re: Funny relegation story - supporter gets jailed?

I think maybe some of the details have changed over time but I do clearly remember this story, though with a few subtle changes. It wasn't a supporter, it was actually Swiss winger Tranquillo Barnetta, of Bayer Leverkusen. And he wasn't jailed as such, but did spend a significant term, some 6 month...

Re: The F1 Thread

When I was younger I was always a Hamilton fan when he started at McLaren, but for the last umpteen years I’ve not been bothered in the slightest who wins - it’s all about having a close fight where entertainment and enjoyment comes from. Norris and Perez excellent too - very promising start to the...

Re: Relegation special #3 BHA v NUFC

Sucks for him. No loss for us considering he's been awful playing out of position for weeks. I think that's a big shout, going into a relegation dogfight with Shelvey as the deep lying midfielder is terrifying. It is. Unfortunately though that was happening whether Hayden is fit or not though.

Re: Bruce staying

There is revisionist history going on with Rafa's legacy in my opinion. I was delighted when he moved on and wouldn't touch him with a bargepole as a future manager. The only problem is we replaced him with somebody that is worse. It's embarrassing. The fact that there are still active twitter acco...
