  1. The S*n cover the story of the blacklist (2+ months out of date). They come to the headline. Needs to be clickbaity. Can't say 'Premier League added people from the same country as some people involved in Newcastle takeover to a blacklist two months ago'. The headline they came up with isn't backed up by anything in the article. Story over As Hope states, this beoutQ service doesn't even exist anymore! The PL would really need solid grounds to block this, and I can't see any solid evidence.
  2. Kenedy an excellent start. Need to see some proper movement on the striker front ASAP though.
  3. Heard a lot of people having a pop at Phil Jones. Just a stat from this season: Man United with Phil Jones playing the 90: 10 goals conceded in 21 games (0.48 goals per game) Man United without Phil Jones: 18 goals conceded in 17 games (1.06 goals per game) Most Man United fans will tell you he's their first-choice centre back and has been itnegral to their defensive solidity this season.
  4. Clark and Lejeune did not look pretty as a pairing when Lascelles was out like. Makes you wonder if we could do with some cover. Perhaps Clarko is simply a good Championship player but not cut out for this level? He did okay alongside Lascelles like - even in that Palace game (the last time he played I think) he stopped a number of certain goals.
  5. Matt Le Tissier: "You've got to ask what was going on at West Brom before Moore got the job." I watched Soccer Saturday the weekend after Pardew was sacked, and they unanimously said he never had a chance because the players had already given up...
  6. And, if the Fat Man does stay, it's pretty obvious that he's going to need to put some money in. Right?!?!
  7. God that was dreadful. Only caught last half an hour but there was precious little to enjoy. Still, at least we did enough up until Monday to be safe. I bet WBA wish they'd sacked Pardew a lot sooner now.
  8. You have to say that the only rational reading of all Ashley's attempts to sell are that he uses it to get the fans onside. He has no intention of actually selling unless an offer that's over-the-odds comes in. It's obviously difficult to quantify how much the club is worth - we've got more potential than Southampton, but you'd have to value us lower than, say, Everton, mostly thanks to the relegations and mismanagement that came due to Ashley.
  9. Fuck me, having watched 180 minutes of the absolute turgid shite Everton serve up under Allardyce I can see exactly why they want him out. How we lost both of the two games I’ve got absolutely no fucking idea. Hope he stays there mind, cos that tinpot club deserve someone as shite as him.
  10. I made the point to someone on Twitter earlier that Real Sociedad spent £16m last summer. They're further away from challenging the Spanish elite than we are - especially with the right owners - challenging the English elite.
  11. Didnt realise that. Explains why they didn’t want a clean sheet
  12. Did anyone see the crunching tackle from Young on Aguero? It was the kind of tackle where you normally analyse to see if it should’ve been a red, but they didn’t even get the penalty Great game like, even if City should’ve been 6 up at half time.
  13. What a transformation from before Christmas. Absolute pleasure watching us play at the moment. We don’t just look solid or functional, but there’s a bit of flair about us going forward. A lot of that is thanks to Kenedy. We’re safe for sure, and 10 clear at the end of the weekend if Arsenal dispose of Soton. Aim now has got to be a top half finish!
  14. 2-3. Gayle hat-trick. Anyone else noticed how much better we've been since Joselu got dropped after that penalty miss?
  15. I must admit I'm surprised quite how badly he did there. Even Megson had them playing reasonably well in his two games. Pardew normally seems to be able to get that initial bounce from man-management, even the likes of Nolan/Barton said he was decent in that respect. It's just when that fades, he's found out to be tactically inept. Clearly here he came in, senior players were totally unconvinced by his appointment, he failed to win them over and then alienated the younger players too.
