  1. Welcome to the club, hopefully you can drag the club out of this sorry mess.
  2. I have just had a text from someone awaiting confirmation. If I'm wrong I apologise.
  3. My true Valentine.
  4. I've been thinking this week about strikers at the club and will we ever see someone as good as Shearer again? I doubt it. What prompted the thoughts was me watching the derby against Sunderland where he scored his final goal. I remember the scenes in the away end that day, different class. He scored some pearlers for us in his time here, without doubt my favourite ever player at the club (Beardsley in a close second). What's your favourite goal? This one for me, purely for the memories of the whole stand absolutely bouncing when it went in. It was a tight game and the mixture of relief and jubilation will always stay with me. What a player.
  5. West Ham In the 2006–07 season Pardew was criticised after seeing West Ham through their worst run of defeats in over 70 years which included a League Cup defeat to Chesterfield. Charlton He took over with Charlton in 19th place in the Premier League, with just 12 points and a –20 goal difference, the lowest in the league. Pardew was unable to keep Charlton up, resulting in the first relegation of his career, both as a player and manager. Many expected Charlton to bounce back from relegation into the Premier League with signings such as Chris Iwelumo and Luke Varney in the 2007/08 season. But Charlton failed to mount a serious promotion challenge and finished the season in 11th. This put Pardew under pressure going into the 08/09 season but Charlton's form very quickly deteriorated and they were near the foot of the table and after 8 games without a win and a 5-2 home defeat to Sheffield United on 22 November 2008, Pardew parted company with Charlton by mutual consent They were then relegated a second time to the 3rd tier of the football league Southampton On 30 August 2010 he was dismissed by Southampton. The dismissal came amidst reports of low staff morale and conflicts between Pardew and club chairman, Nicola Cortese Other controversy - In February 2007, shortly before Pardew's new club Charlton faced West Ham, The Sun published a report documenting a video of one of Pardew's media training sessions he took whilst manager at West Ham. In the video, Pardew jokingly made several disparaging comments about West Ham's fans - In March 2009, on Match of the Day 2 Pardew stated that Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien "absolutely rapes" Man City player Ched Evans during a midfield tussle for the ball, in the sense that he bested him physically - In 2003, the BBC described him as being a "dangerous and distant animal" in the media, referring to his public relations abilities, which has led him to making several rash comments. When at West Ham, the club employed a media advisor for Pardew to help him win over sceptical fans
  6. Two of the great players of my lifetime. Who was the greatest?
  7. Can someone set up a poll for this please. Providing we finish 1st or 2nd we have 8 games left with Rafa in charge (yes I know he's supposed to be on a 3 year contract) but we know football contracts mean bugger all these days. Also we have suspicions that Rafa's contract may well have been fractured given Ashley's interference in January. I can hear people now, saying "hang on Trooper" & all that but it really is "the elephant in the room" we know that Rafa gave Charnley a list of players in October for the January window . As the month wore on it was becoming obvious that we weren't signing anyone. Then just as the window was closing it looked like Rafa seemed confident about "signing one" (Townsend) After the 3-0 thrashing by Oxford in the league cup & the presser before the QPR match Rafa was asked "why there were know signings" he was made to look like a guy who wasn't in the loop & I felt embarrassed for him when he said "he didn't know" the QPR match finished 2-2 & I remember Rafa looking furious on the touchline during the match he kept saying things to his coaches I imagined it being "if only we'd signed Townsend" I can't help think that the water between Ashley/ Charnley & Rafa has been sullied I can't help think Rafa has decided to see this season out hopefully get promotion then call it a draw knowing Keegan was right when he said " You can't work with these people they know nothing about football" I suppose we'll know in a few weeks but if Rafa does decide to leave, the blame should land on Ashley's shoulders & every single Newcastle United supporter no matter were they are should make it known how you feel. I'm ready for the bed wetter backlash but I feel it's a fair question to be asked & it requires an answer sooner rather than later. Now over to you lot what do you think ?
  8. 'I've applied for Villa job' Aston Villa v Chelsea (12:45 BST) Posted at 12:37 Former Newcastle boss John Carver on BBC Radio 5 live: "Villa have a fantastic fan base and if you look at the candidates that are being put forward to replace Remi Garde, there are some good ones. Have I applied, I think I have, via my agent. Have I heard anything back? Not yet. "They almost know they are certainly down so the sooner they get somebody in, they can prepare for next season. Draw up the list and get the players you want." Doesn't even know if has applied for the job or not.
  9. Im exactly the same as the fans at the minute - Im one of them. I pay for my ticket and Im the same. I am entitled to my opinion. It hasnt been pleasant watching to be honest. Its been poor. With Newcastle in the bottom three going into the dark evenings Shearer feels that the problems at United havent just unfolded overnight. He said: It has been poor since January this year, The quicker we can get out of it the better. But he feels a tough scrap against relegation could lie ahead. He said: I dont hold too much hope for us this season. I think it could be a long hard season for us. Pardew will prepare his players for another crunch fixture on Saturday against Leicester amidst a backdrop of pressure with sections of the Toon Army still on his back. Now Shearer believes there can be no excuses going into the battle with former Newcastle coach Nigel Pearsons newly promoted Foxes. Shearer said: Nobody can make any excuses. The simple fact is we havent been good enough. You can make whatever excuses you want. Injuries, too many games or confidence. Put all of that to one side, the simple fact of the matter is we just have not been good enough. We havent been unlucky. We havent been ravaged by injuries. We havent been done by dodgy decisions. We just havent been good enough. Its simple. Thats the harsh reality of it. Things have to improve and they have to improve pretty quickly or we could find ourselves in a hole.
  10. 5 years tomorrow. That's absolutely flown over!
  11. Great move by the club, was about time to honour the man in an appropriate way. http://www.nufc.co.u...2281670_2749603
  12. Saw this on Football 365 Looked at his record vs McClaren. People roundly (and rightly) criticised Steve, they correctly regarded him as a poor manager. but when you compare their records: Record P W D L Win % Allardyce 25 6 6 13 24 McClaren 31 7 6 18 22.6
  13. Laudrup getting linked now: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/west-ham/11628133/West-Ham-and-Newcastle-could-offer-Michael-Laudrup-route-back-into-the-Premier-League.html Obviously McClaren is surely favorite now after getting the sack. Laudrup plays a canny brand of football but I doubt he'd get on well with Ashley. Carvs wants it but I can't imagine anyone wants him to have it. Clement's a bit of a wild card but he's undoubtedly a talented coach. I'd like to see Clement tbh as he's an unknown quantity in the top job so it would be an interesting appointment, I wouldn't have any grumbles with McClaren as he's a step up from Pardew for me, Carver can fuck right off and I just can't see Laudrup getting along with Ashley.
  14. According to BBC Radio Newcastle Good if true
  15. Deserves his own thread, should get the job for life.
  16. http://compasscayman.com/caycompass/2015/06/05/Keegan-buzz-kicks-in/ ​ I just spunked a little bit.
  17. Last night Kevin Keegan was at Hedworth Hall for a football talk-in sounds like the evening was a fairly casual affair from what ive been reading over on NO. Apparently there were questions from the crowd "and the last one was in the middle of the sentence and got to Kevin if we got new owners..... To which Keegan interupted the answer is yes" Look's like he'd be up for it what do you think ? I'd love it got to get rid of these clowns first to stand a chance. (He's back up here again next week on 9th May at the Lancastrian suite).
  18. And yes, that's resigns, not re-signs.
  19. John carver is on another planet.
  20. After his disgraceful exhibition of blaming the players in the media, if we are to stand any chance of staying up, Ashley MUST sack Carver now.
  21. Has there ever been a bigger arsehole in football than this man? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/...am-winners.html
  22. Happy Birthday, Wor Kev! (Sighs..............ok then........ ...... Happy birthday to Andrew as well I suppose).
  23. Oh dear john. You say you value the fa cup yet you play a second string team against Leicester away. I must admit I didn't follow the game but have read the reports on sky sports and must say... Come on john, what the hell was that? Several recognised players having poor games including tiote. Armstrong being trusted yet again in what must be classed as a 'must win' game, not just for the fans but for carver if he wants this job until the summer or heaven forbid full time. If this is his best shot then carver isn't good enough.
