  1. I just got straight into the article. Georginio Wijnaldum is at a loss to explain very Newcastle United are nervous out on the field, stating: “Why not give your best and try to change things?” The Magpies crashed to a 10th successive away defeat with a 3-1 loss at Southampton, a result which left United six points shy of safety with only half-a-dozen games remaining. Inside four minutes Newcastle found themselves behind after Shane Long was allowed to ghost past the defence and slot past Karl Darlow. Graziano Pelle added a second after further defensive mistakes, while Victor Wanyama w

  3. As I remember it basically Ashby had decided in advance that Ginola was a diver and he wasn't going to give him anything so there were fouls that should have been yellow cards where we didn't even get a free kick until eventually Ginola lost it. I think I read somewhere later that this was a tactic they had agreed in advance.
  4. I don't feel as strongly as that, mainly because I've got a good mate who is an Arsenal fan and is a nice lad but they do seem to attract more than their fair share of Wednesday night football fans. "I moved to London 5 years ago and I've never actually been to a game but look at me in my replica shirt watching the Champions League in the pub".
  5. I hadn't realised that. Only 5 years after that game. That's cheered me up
  6. I used to feel the same about Arsenal after that cup game where Ginola was sent off (still the worst refereeing performance I have ever seen). Gradually I came to realise it was George Graham I hated not Arsenal.
  7. deja vu - not just in the words of the OP but looking at that video, great though it was to see the old ground and mick quinn in action, that must have been one of the least inspiring teams I can remember
  8. Fantastic website and great to see the old ground. It looks like it didn't change from the 1930s to when i started going in the late 60s
  9. As HF says - it makes perfect sense execpt it never seems to work in practice. All of the people named above will look like a manager in waiting from the moment they arrive. Its a shame we can't find someone ( a healthy SBR would have been perfect) who could come in and help CH without looking like they would leap into the job given half a chance.
  10. Beardsley, Gascoigne and Waddle there but the only Newcastle player is Roy Aitken
  11. What's annoying is having to deal with dickheads who get their views of newcastle fans from pieces like this. i got it last year - people saying "I really hope Newcastle go down - your fans are so deluded"
  12. Was thinking about posting this link about how it didn't take long for the lazy stereotyping to begin when I saw the Daily Mail stuff above. This is from [url="http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/sport/sport-headlines/newcastle-fans-to-resume-inexplicable-self%11confidence-201004062618/"[/url] Maybe I should write a piece for the Daily Mash "Spoof site produces exactly the same "joke" as the site it is spoofing". NEWCASTLE FANS TO RESUME INEXPLICABLE SELF-CONFIDENCE 06-04-10 NEWCASTLE United fans resumed their adorable self-confidence last night by insisting their team w
  13. Surely if he does that he's just reducing the value of the club. instead of having £xm a year we have £1k. Basically he would be taking value out in kind (free advertising) rather than cash (revenue or a more valuable club if he sells). Of course we'd still be stuck with it on the front of our shirts
  14. This is my new comfort blanket. I've finally accepting that we are not a decent manager and two good signings away from competing at the top again but that Ashley has created a time machine and shipped us back to the 70's - long term mediocrity, best players want out, bobbong around midtable at best and nothing to look forward to after January. The faint hope is that he stabilises our finances before the shit hits the fan for football He hasn't done that (yet!!) all he's done is maintained the position/trend Shepherd had us in (albeit fiscally better off - sort of) What he hasn't do
