Re: Match day thread - NUFC v Spurs

I'm betting Bruce is wishing they'd sacked him during the week now. 1000 games in charge and still clueless.

And as I type this we get a second. OG from Dier.

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v Spurs

That Bruce keeps giving Joelinton game time is one of his biggest faults for me. Calling him a professional footballer should be against the trade descriptions act.

Is it known yet which 2 spuds players are out because of covid? Hopefully Kane will be one, got a sneaky feeling he'll come back to form today.
False positives apparently.
Yeah, I still don't know who they are but the team is unchanged so can't have been anybody important.

Also Sky said that Sir John Hall and Keegan both expected to be at the game today. Should help fuel the atmosphere.

Re: The Everton Question?

Considering how much Everton fans seemed to hate Newcastle without any apparent reason to do so, they must really hate the club now.

How long before comments like that start showing up for real?

I'm also willing to bet that the tea towel wearing muppets will be the first to turn to that sort of nonsense.

Re: New Manager

I'm wondering if during their hour long discussion they came to a compromise. Steve we want to replace you but don't have anybody lined up ready for the Spurs game. As its your 1000th game we understand you would like to be in charge for that. How about you have that game and then resign with your f...

Sky News just reported that Rodgers has confirmed that he has no interest in talking to Newcastle as he is perfectly happy at Leicester.

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

I sincerely hope we start and build from the bottom and up, and not start spending huge on so-called stars. Too many newly rich clubs have tried that strategy, even City tried and failed in the beginning! Then they used a few years to build from the ground. But I'm sure they all know that, other cl...

Got a bottle of 1792 bourbon at the weekend, very nice!
Yeah 1792 is lovely. Tried a bottle of that last Xmas/New Year. Need to get another bottle.

Just finished Woodford Reserve Double-Oaked for the first time. Even nicer than the standard reserve, which is saying something.

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

Talking of McGinn he's just scored a cracking goal for Scotland. It was beautifully taken , he also missed a sitter later. But he is a tremendous player, a beating heart of a midfield and he looks good in black and white stripes. Saw a lot of him playing through the ranks at St mirren, a top player...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

I don't dislike Lascelles but he's never been fantastic. For me there have been numerous occasions in his tenure here where he's been 3rd or 4th choice in my eyes, but it was only really Rafa who was prepared to drop him for form/ability reasons. I'd imagine his days are numbered. It's interesting ...
