  1. Why did any of you expect any better than the shite Cabaye served up? Did you really believe the Puppet's bullshit? Cabaye was a dead ordinary player in the crap French league. Do some homework, read the forums from over there. His transfer was all about lining pockets such as those of that crook Carr and who knows who else.
  2. "The thought of a top 10 finish is the furthest thing from the thoughts of our owner and his lackey. Maintaining top flight status is all they care about and if they can save a quid by finishing 17th instead of 10th they will." Well, this is undeniably true, but it's all about the spin. Ashley, Del-boy and the Puppet think the fans are stupid, but not so stupid that's they'd swallow a line about us challenging for Europe etc. Top 10 finish though, they probably think we'd believe that (of course there are those poor deluded souls like the "Team Positive " faction who really do) and be rel
  3. Well, I think Kennedy is the best LB I 've seen at the club, and Enrique the best since him. There have been others in between I never saw much of I guess, so it is just my impression, I'm not being categorical about it.
  4. The last real quality left back I remember at Newcastle was Alan Kennedy....history repeats...
  5. In some parallel universe, Xisco is upfront, partnering Fabio Zamblera...with Tamas Kadar at centre-back...
  6. What you all need to get your head around is that he doesn't give a fuck about the club. He's not like us, or Bobby, or Shearer, or even Freddy. He's been on the Courvoisier XO with his mates one night and had a bright idea - "I'll buy a football club!" Of course, it's all gone pear shaped, and now he's trying to cut his losses. He doesn't give a fuck about the club, the tradition, the fans - in fact he probably hates us all. This has become purely a bad business decision he's trying to make the best of. Don't expect him to do anything in the interests of Newcastle United ahead of the interest
  7. And depite all of the fans (well, most of us) - and players now it seems - feeling cheated, betrayed, cuckolded - call it as you like, Ashley will feel that he's getting the club just how he wants it. He has the perfect number two for his purposes in Del-boy (lying, manipulating yes-man), and the right sort of manager (plausible, spineless yes-man). Costs are coming down, he's probably been able to launder a bit of cash into his private accounts from transfers, and things generally are looking up. The challenge is to keep the club up of course - for the stated "top 10 finish" required, read "m
  8. Wherever he's played Bellamy has been a complete tool. Maybe that's exaggeration, but I've certainly heard it from Norwich, Coventry, West Ham and Cardiff supporters. I had no time for him at Newcastle. In the same mould as Dyer really. Looked fast and flashy, did some memorable things, but ultimately didn't make a great contribution and was a pain in the arse. I'm no fan of Michael Owen, but to be suggesting (as some seem to be) that Bellamy has been a better player is breathtaking nonsense...
  9. I don't agree at all. It's all about achieving more than you thought you would achieve. Man U and Chelsea fans are so bored with winning the league, they can only get pleasure when they surpass their rivals' number of league title wins. Nick, this is a ridiculous post I have to say. Perhaps Man Utd and Chelsea fans have become bored with winning, but the implication that, therefore, Newcastle fans shouldn't be aspiring to win something - anything - is just nonsense.
  10. But Nick, Bellamy had fallen out with the club's managers. Robson couldn't control him and Souness was hired, at least in part, to wield the stick. No doubt Shearer bad-mouthed him to Shepherd but it well known that Bellamy was on the outer with management by then anyway.
  11. Ultimately, teams are judged by what they win surely? And don't we all want to support a successful team? Being "entertaining" losers lost its novelty for me a long time ago. Yeah, sure we can have nice memories of great individual matches, but it's looking like I'll go to my grave having never seen Newcastle United actually "win" anything, and I can't say I'm satisfied with that... I absolutely want us to win things but I disagree with the insinuation that there's little else to football. I don't think I implied that there's "little else". My point is that without being the support
  12. I've never suggested that. Read properly what people write. My point is that no matter what the club achieves is not impressive if it's based on getting the club into debt. Plus, Bellamy, one of the most important players in Bobby's team was sold against his will, simply to please Shearer. Freddie was a disaster. I don't think that's really accurate Nick. Bellamy and Shearer fell out, yes, but by then Bellamy had become a loose cannon. He feigned injuries, threw a chair at Carver (reportedly) and in general had become unmanageable.

  15. Fucking hell. If supporting Fat Fred to nth degree and seeing no wrong he done is LM, you my lad are the fucking polar opposite. You fuckers never heard of grey? As in the stuff in the middle? Freddy for any short comings was not abysmal like. MO was a fuck up, but was Shearer? Ferdinand, Beardo? Lee? Robert? Bellamy? Given? and on and on and on. He was a twat who loved his face on Sky sports and in hindsight, Id say didnt manage the clubs finances that well. Im not sure where it went wrong, but it did. I always blame the season Partizan stopped us getting back into the CL, I think
