    Having Trials
  1. Same fixture last year was a draw. Southampton have also drawn away against Brighton and Huddersfield, which is about our level. It's got draw written all over it. 3-1 to the sausage shakers!
  2. Alexandar Mitrovic

    Rafa said this about Mitro at a charity do at Tyneside Cinema last month. Apologies if this has already been posted as it's not brand new, but Rafa seems to state he does rate Mitro and is willing to play him as a sub when we need a goal, but he suits playing in a good team and not a shite one like we have now. “Mitro – I have had a lot of conversations with him. He needed to play and I couldn’t guarantee he would play. “Some people say ‘Oh Rafa is stubborn and he doesn’t want to recognise he made a mistake’. No, it’s not like this. Because if it was like this I wouldn’t play Mitro at all. But I was playing him, sometimes for 20 minutes. Why? Because I wanted him to score the winning goal. “People forget one thing: the players who play or are on the bench or on the stands but the manager is involved in every single game and I want to win every single game. For me, it’s about picking the right team to ensure we can win. “Mitro needed to play. I couldn’t guarantee the way that we wanted to play (he would play). If you know Mitro really well – if you attack and you create a lot of chances and crosses he will score goals, no doubt that. But a team that has 40-45 or even 35% possession in some games, you have to defend in some games, you have to play counter-attack. If you don’t have all these players who can do that and you have to sacrifice something. “We were talking about the main thing of this team – it is the team, the organisation of the team. If we don’t do that, we will be exposed. When we went 1-0 up against Man United (in the Old Trafford game) or Chelsea, we were a little bit open and we conceded. “In the FA Cup against Chelsea we had to attack in the second half so we were open and we conceded. We couldn’t manage it. The team is the key and the characteristic of the players are crucial. For me, I have to do the best for both.”
  3. Another candid chat with MFA story: http://www.nufcblog.co.uk/2018/02/08/nufc-fan-shares-fascinating-details-of-his-brief-chat-with-mike-ashley-in-central-london-today/ Staveley deal off full stop apparently. No other buyers right now and no willingness to invest himself. If you believe this type of shite of course.
  4. The OFFICIAL Transfer Rumours Thread 2018 -2019

    Rafa said he would only let players go out if he had replacements coming in. I am hoping this means a striker loan is all but sorted.
  5. The OFFICIAL Transfer Rumours Thread 2018 -2019

    17th in that scenario rather than bottom 3, but sinking inevitably closer.
  6. The OFFICIAL Transfer Rumours Thread 2018 -2019

    Nope. Just being sarcastic.
  7. The OFFICIAL Transfer Rumours Thread 2018 -2019

    I think the Ashley PR machine are pretty fucking good like. To be fair, I want them not to sign Jorgensen as he's a bit shit. So I'd rather no signing than the 20M signing. Which they bid 12M for. But whatever. I don't want him. Ashley in!
  8. Leeds white power crest might even trump Sheffield Wednesday's rimming owl.
  9. The OFFICIAL Transfer Rumours Thread 2018 -2019

    The naive optimistic part of me says 20M plus 15M for Mitro = Bas Dost. Mitro gets 3 red cards for Brighton before the end of the season. To be realistic, he's probably already sold and we're paying 5M net for Troy Deeney and might not even get him over the line.
  10. It's alright lads. Dennis Wise has chipped in with some reassuring news that Mike Ashley is reluctant to sell because he only wants to sell to a buyer that is going to take the club forward and not sell to a buyer that is only coming in to make a quick buck from the next TV deal money. http://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/football/teams/newcastle-united/11211758/ashley-wont-sell-to-just-anyone That's a relief. We wouldn't want anyone like that.
