Re: Takeover back on - DEAL DONE

Would love to see some old faces come back onto this site especially moncur's border reivers from 606 he said he'd only come back once Ashley went.

Re: Takeover back on - Shares Transferred...

So I totally understand fans being excited for more money being pumped into the club, but the specific "We've got our club back" sentiment when it's been bought by a consortium of billionaires and a middle-east government feels a bit off to me. The club will be in better shape financially and compe...

Re: Takeover back on - Saudi lift Bein ban

It is genuinely great to think that some fans who went to games for years and years but understandably turned their back (on Ashley, not the club) can now get back to following the team they love. Fully expect us to lose to Spurs after this <laugh> Winless at Christmas, spending spree in January, s...

According to nufc.com, the media are gathering at Jesmond Dene House for an announcement. Keith Downie (among others) broadcasting from there already.
We can finally announce the signing of Tranquillo Barnetta. <divax>

Re: Match day - Wolves v NUFC

Regarding Bruce's ever enlightening comments: Reports are flooding in from across the country; queues are forming and panic is rising. England is suffering from an acute shortage of positives and it appears that Newcastle United are hoarding them. Week after week they grasp them, game after game the...

Re: New Kit 21/22

I've had two good experiences with DHGate and one order which never turned up. Ultimately they're a marketplace like Amazon or ebay and every seller on there is different.

Re: Holidays

My wedding was expensive in comparison to some of yours (about £6k) but about a quarter of the price of some weddings I've been to. I knew someone who spent £30k on their wedding and got divorced within a year. They're still paying for a wedding to someone they're not even married to anymore <doh>....

Re: New Kit 21/22

I'd thought the third kit was green? Or did that turn out to be the keeper shirt? The green version is the third keeper kit, which I'm pretty sure was worn last week. Since it's not a luminous green it has the magic ability to camouflage the goalkeeper and make the opponent think they have an empty...

Re: Other Clubs Rumours/Transfers (Summer 2021)

Quiet end to the window upcoming. Mbappé to Real Madrid. Ronaldo to City, no PSG, no Man Utd actually - wherever it is, he's out of Juventus. Haaland to PSG? Richarlison to PSG? Kane is staying put because "the big master of negotiations, Daniel Levy, who knows everything" refused to negotiate with ...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

It's from the mail, but apparently we've put a price tag of 10m on Sean Longstaff because his contract is running down. Bruce doesn't like either of the brothers haha. The Athletic are reporting that if we sign a centre-mid, Longstaff will be permitted to leave. Rafa is keen (and has continued to a...

Re: Match day thread: Newcastle v West Ham

You'd hope that next match Willock will presumably be fulfilling that get forward in attack/support role and Hayden will be shielding the back four. Hopefully Lascelles back too to give us some actual presence in defence. Maybe. Bruce seems to love Shelvey deeper (less pressing so he has more time ...
