Re: Match day - NUFC v Spurs

the 22 year old that couldnt get a game for crewe alexandria in league 2? sounds pretty risky to me There's often a reason players like him have yet to get the opportunity to prove they're good enough for this level. I hate to be the one who says it, but Dummett was in a very similar situation at 2...

It seems the club has high hopes for Toure. I hope he makes it :)

Re: Squad numbers 2018/19 confirmed

I'm pretty surprised one of Elliot or Darlow hasn't left. I mean, I'm sure we don't want to keep Woodman around as third choice when he could instead be playing every day elsewhere, but I'd have though Karl or Rob would want a chance to play. Elliot is 32 - would have gladly let him go and I'm sure...

Re: Kit Thread 18/19

What be the fitting on the jerseys? Are they similar to last year where the size was more the length of the jersey rather than the actual width I'm a portly gent at the best of times (36" waist, 16.5-17" collar) and my shirt is extra large and still feels like it was designed for a child. I sympath...

Re: Federico Fernandez 6m Done Deal

A few people have recently, I've had to put them right in the same way I used to for the people who thought Danny Simpson wasn't s***. Yeah, I've definitely seen people who deny he was ever good, when he was arguably our best player for a couple years, and as others said, one of our best CBs in the...

If they play two up top Mitro and Vietto could be lethal. Could be.
That's a big if...Vietto's got something like 10 goals in 3 years in a league where a different kind of football is played. I wouldn't gamble on him, but you never know.

I'm happy with the players we've signed, but it's another missed opportunity to add real quality and depth. We've built a first XI that's aim is to probably come around p12 rather than trying to push on.
Only with Benitez, though.

Re: The Marlon Santos Thread (£1.5m loan fee agreed; awaiting work permit)

Says it all Marlon Santos failed to get a work permit for his move to Newcastle United because the Premier League would not endorse his move. Santos is a Brazilian under-20 international but has never played for the senior team so he didn’t qualify automatically. And because he is a back-up option,...

Sticker badges are my pet hate. When the shirt costs £60+ there's no excuse not to give us a fully embroidered badge <fist>
Couldn't agree more. It's like the slim fit clothing trend - less material for a higher cost.

Because Yedlin is pretty naff and Manquillo can cover both sides equally naffly. Our right hand side is way more exposed than our left.
Probably why Ritchie will end up playing most of the season.

Re: Salomon Rondon to sign this weekend? -- Salomon Swapped!

Aarons too. And I know Saivet started his career as a wide forward, although is an underwhelming CM choice now... Saivet has gone on loan hasn't he? Nope - shockingly, he's proving hard to shift from the wage bill, what we being an unnecessary signing in the first place. Longstaff is ahead in the p...

Re: Salomon Rondon to sign this weekend? -- Salomon Swapped!

Ki is not like for like with Diame or Shelvey. He's more like Cabaye. But even then, I'm sure he'll be able to cover as necessary. I agree with the Colo sentiment of needing more midfield depth. We're certainly not short on wingers... Aren't we? Kenedy on loan, Atsu, Ritchie and Murphy? There's num...

I'd be shocked if this was for more than £400k. I'm pleased that the club has moved him on and pleased for him, hopefully he can get on with his career.

Re: NUFC close to breaking point. Rafa rightly lays into club.

Apart from there isn't even a whisper of any interest from anyone. After what happened to Stavely in what was a very a public debacle for a potential takeover, it's clear no one wants to do business with Ashley who has the worst reputation and has saddled the club with personal debt, which other in...

Re: Salomon Rondon to sign this weekend? -- Salomon Swapped!

isn't that kind of what Ki is? Well I assume he'll be playing alongside him to start the season with Diame injured. We have 4 senior players for central midfield, 1 of whom (Hayden) has wanted gone all summer. It'd be great if Longstaff were to show promise, but I just can't believe how few options...

Yes, he's a man with ex-soviet union money. No better than the current owner in that respect ;)

Re: Arsenal owner in 600m outright takeover

The fans deeply dislike Kroenke because they don't like his investment approach, his refusal to speak publicly and that he never makes his intentions clear.
