Rondon is some player by the way. He adds so much to the team when he plays.
Even though he turns 30 next season, I reckon he could play for another 3 years at this level like this. I'd say swap Gayle for him, if Benitez stays (<1% chance of this happening)

Re: Wagner leaves Huddersfield!

It looked that bad for Southampton when Hughes left, so I wouldn't assume they won't get some sort of bounce. That being said, they have a weak squad.

Re: Rio/Keys Spouting Pure s****

To be fair Rio was being anything but honest and Keys is being utterly absurd. Why are we the only club in the Premier League where our manager needs to have a whip round to buy players with his own money? Ashley is trying to run the club as a business and make his money back (badly by all accounts...

Re: 'Miracle' needed - Benitez

Yes - dud signings are an issue. But i you're getting 4th - 10th choice players because they're cost effective choices that is what will happen.

This also doesn't account for the rug being pulled out at the same time in terms of player sales.

Re: 'Miracle' needed - Benitez

I'm surprised by the number of negative comments in response to the manager's statement here. He finds himself manager of an underinvested squad and wants money to improve it. I'd say this is indisputable. The team doesn't spend like every other club does in the premier league. I'd say this is indis...

NUFC v Leicester 28.09.18

I saw a point in the Palace thread regarding disappointment that Rondon is crocked for tomorrow's game and potentially more after that. I do match the sentiment, but with the way the team has been playing and the fact he was looking sluggish against Palace, I'd have suggested the team plugs away wit...

Re: Kevin Keegan - “I came up against a wall of incompetence, deceit & arrogance”

<laugh> Definitely making it up, absolute chancer Jimenez Keegan's not stupid enough to have wanted to sign Beckham in 2008. I'd love to see this prick's evidence that he had the likes of Defoe lined up to sign...and if he did, why didn't he sign him? Clearly the manager's lack of approval was not ...

Re: Watford valued same as Newcastle!

As we have seen, a strong home fanbase is financially worthless - just change your club to playing in red and watch the money roll in from the far east. The billion dollar difference comes from a club that has international interest to one that has none. This club currently has 0 reputation outside...

Meh, I'm 35 and got excited about Carroll, he really was an exciting player and had he stayed on and injury free I think his goal record could be pretty special by now. I also had Cabaye's name on my shirt after just that Darlo friendly, so we've all done it...

Re: Watford valued same as Newcastle!

But we're talking about the difference of over a billion dollars with the valuations of other PL clubs. Plus, a more affordable squad also means less guaranteed costs on the books. The squad is a temporary asset; league status, stadium, training facilities, existing fanbase, etc. is longer-term and...

Re: Watford valued same as Newcastle!

Tbf I've always thought what Ashley is wanting for the club is more than fair. Not sure why everyone kicks off when he says he wants £400m. Agreed. It's a fraction of what other PL clubs have been sold for lately, and most of the value should be in the opportunity and access to PL revenues. And jus...

Re: Your NUFC team v Chelsea

Chelsea are great going fwd and will deffo score. If Rafa thinks he can close up he is mad. They have weakness at the back - particularly Luiz. We need Rondon on the pitch to pressure them - and Id like to see both Muto and Perez there as they will hassle. Please no Joselu Couldn't agree more but y...

Clement is almost as big a fraud as McClaren. How he keeps getting jobs is beyond me.

He's seemingly spent more time arguing with Darren Bint on twitter than he setting up his side to win a football game.

Re: Reading FC woes...

It sounds like Clement will get dumped sooner rather than later. Are the players buying into his style?

A team like Reading has no business losing to Bolton right now.

Re: Your NUFC team v Chelsea

Fully expecting the same line-up as v Cardiff other than Yedlin at RB, and Atsu/Murphy in place of Kenedy. Joselu will start. Unfortunately, this. Rafa seems to like consistency. I doubt Muto is ready for 90 mins of Premier League football, and doesn't seem to be entirely happy that Rondon is settl...

No further action to be taken against Kenedy
Although inelligible, if he had played like he did on Saturday that's not a blessing, it's a curse. Let's hope he atones next time.
