  1. What are you listening to ?

    Not in that jacket he’s got on in that video
  2. Bruce Manager of NUFC

    He came, did a good job, wasn’t backed and subsequently left at the end of his contract. What an incredible turn of events. And in any case, UM’s preferred option is one of the most mercenary managers out there. Has he ever seen out a contract?

    Blaming the other side for being unreasonable in negotiations. That sounds familiar. And the substantial meals thing is just to protect the chains. Fuck everyone else.
  4. Bruce Manager of NUFC

    Best bit was he fucked off after taking the huff because the decision to delete his post wasn’t explained to him
  5. Bruce Manager of NUFC

    It’s a shame we have a Wilson in the squad after Noelie had already fucked off
  6. Bruce Manager of NUFC

    I’ve seen fuck all to suggest he’s any good but he’s clearly a bit better playing a bit deeper. Bruce hung him out to dry by playing him as a centre-forward for the opening 2/3s of last season. Then when he did play him in a different position his confidence was already shot to pieces

    Thing is as well, Parker is young / inexperienced, which is obviously a risk but it might pay off. With Bruce you know exactly what you’re getting with fuck all chance of a positive outcome.

    I honestly think Ashley had the notion that getting Bruce in and giving him a bit of money would see a better return than Benitez in terms of points and league position. Just to prove some weird point because the fans loved Rafa and he wouldn’t just meekly do what he was told. It backfired somewhat with the signing of Joelinton. I can’t imagine another team in the division going for Bruce (or paying that money for Joelinton).

    Our decent start (points-wise at least), might be enough to make the difference. We’ve been statistically awful for the whole of Bruce’s tenure though and you’d think the apparent luck would even itself out sooner or later. I wouldn’t put a lot of money on it either way

    Every manager going buys some shit. There’s a lot less risk involved when you’re given the funds to buy tried and tested rather than having to take a punt on young and unproven players though. Benitez managed to improve most of the players who played under him though. Look at the money we got for Perez for example. Not just him though, Lascelles was being touted for silly money. He’s probably worth about 20% of what he was when Bruce inherited him. It says a lot about Bruce that he can’t even drill his defence well. That said, I reckon we’ll be ok again when you look at some of the sides in the division. He epitomises the Ashley era though, short-term, no real plan, no obvious playing style, just about make do and get another season’s worth of tv money.

    Self catering, hactually. I don’t like to mix with the proletariat
  12. Bruce Manager of NUFC

    Got the manager you deserve tbh
  13. Coronavirus

    I’ll send you the link to the place I stayed at.
  14. Politics

    The people who go mad for it often don’t have a clue about history. Then you have knobs like that Tory mp who are patriotic in the jingoistic sense but wouldn’t go near military service. They love a good war so long as it doesn’t involve anyone they care about. It’s pretty much the opposite of respect for the people who serve in the military because, like most politicians that jump on the land of hope and glory bandwagon, they view them as expendable rather than actual people doing a tough job. But as long as he’s got his poppy on first
  15. Coronavirus

    Eskdale was quiet when I stayed there in July and we’re going back to the same place next year. When I went to Wasdale it was insanely busy though. People camping and parked everywhere. Also last time I was there I went walking near Hayeswater. There was a sign on the beacon at the top of Thornthwaite Crag telling you to stay clear due to danger of falling rocks. Pretty much guaranteed that’s due to tits climbing on it.
