  1. The OFFICIAL Transfer Rumours Thread 2018 -2019

    Atlanta have signed a designated player (a playmaker), MLS only let teams have three and he's their fourth. Is any other club in for Almiron?
  2. That's mental. It makes a mockery of the whole process. How can anyone not think that's a red? I can only think the ref included it in his report. Possibly saying the tackle he recieved prior swayed his decision to let both go.
  3. Mike Ashley -- Football Cunt

    The books have been presented with one aim - to present Ashley in the best light possible. The cynic would believe the misleading 90m headline is to make out he is the savior of Newcastle United, and implies anyone who says otherwise is delusional. The truth is more likely they are trying to quash any expectations of spending more than last summer. It's rather concerning that Ashley didnt use this opportunity to court potential buyers to drive up the price.

    We have a PR guy? I'd have love to see that job advert.

    Can one of our financially minded posters explain the significance of the 90m being an Operating Loss. My understanding is, it only includes income and expenses for that year. So Capital expenditure (player sales/purchases, income for past player sales/purchase) are either excluded or only include the 12 month value. As I'm pretty sure this is significant as Ashley said we would only ever buy players in full. And I know we sell on tick e.g. Sissoko for 6m a year x5 years. In my mind we at least broke even last year. Just not in cash flow (purchase in full vs player sales on ticks full income value).

    You cant have seen him play much for Bolton. He's crap. No sense of positioning, not strong enough and wastes easy chances. He's too good for League One and too sh*t for the Championship. He's basically a poor mans Dwight Gayle.
  8. Pretty sure he rested Atsu with Saturday in mind. He's was man of the match against West Ham - made Zabaleta look well past it.
  9. Ashley doesn't have to bank roll Rafa. The club can buy players and pay in instalments. Pretty much the norm in football. So the new buyer would foot the bill. It's more likely the buyer is stalling until they feel comfortable we won't go down. Which at this rate will be May.
  10. If Ashley does want to sell and there are people seriously looking to buy. All Ashley has to do is allow the club to buy players on installments.
  11. Souness Has A Pop At Toon Fans

    Some peope have very short memories. Boumsong had a hell of a lot going on off the field and was commuting to France every week. Labelling him an epic flop isn't really fair. http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11678/2357874/souey-lay-off-boumsong
  12. Rafa Benitez

    I'm pinning all my hope of Rafa staying to a resignation clause in his contract.

    I think it was mutual. We only had one fit goal keeper at the start of the season, as both Krul and Elliott were out until October. We signed Sels in June and Krul left in August. His contract was set to expire in 2017 and he signed a one year extension, so we'd get a fee out of Ajax and to push through the loan deal.
  14. I thought the rules were changed this year to say it was only a yellow with a pen? http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/10242286/ifab-anounces-law-changes-softening-rules-on-fouls-in-the-penalty-area
