  1. I think we're very weak at RB and wouldn't sell Carr unless we had a decent replacement. The ball does not love Peter Ramage
  2. Apologies then, i've got that completely wrong, i thougth i remembered them doing ok. I still think he's less shite at CB though
  3. Didn't Sebastian Deisler have depression? I thought he gave up playing because of it........suppose i should look on the internet....
  4. this is what is important, getting the right man, if you do that there is no such thing as bad timing Totally agree with that myself. You're ignoring the business side of the football business there, the industry itself isn't really about football, he's a good business man, and that should not be underestimated. Really the only thing a chairman needs to know about football is which manager to hire and when to fire. I think if he had a football savvy chief executive they could be the best pair in the premiership. Your right, i was, and i agree with rest 'an all.
  5. As long as no one wants to see a team of decadent choirboys
  6. Can't quite get my head around the reason for this attack, but I'm only saying I don't think he will be good enough, and no I don't think there is anything wrong at all with making a quick decision about a footballer. See above. My opinion is it is very easy to call the shots with hindsight, and those who knock Shepherd are doing just that, using hindsight. The VAST MAJORITY of Newcastle supporters backed these appointments, if however you didn't, well done for commendable vision. Now, THAT is a sweeping statement if ever I saw one. I notice not one person, has taken

  8. TBH, i only see him now & again on MOTD, you may have a much more informed view. Maybe i only saw him in a brief good spell, in which case your opinion is probably correct.
  9. He's shite at centre back. 67061[/snapback] He formed a good partnership with Wes Brown a while back, might have been when Rio was suspended. Otherwise i think he's error prone at LB but just a little better at CB, which is odd.
  10. I think Silvestre is a LB by trade but can be a bit of a clown there, Heinze is much better. However Silvestre is alright at CB for some reason (not normally a good position for someone who doesn't concentate), he did very well paired up with Wes Brown a while back.
  11. Still, I wouldn't mind winning games on a more regularly... I'm happy about the win today (that I predicted) and I'm also sort of happy about the performance today, at least the team showed some determination. Though, I'd like to watch a Newcastle game again were I really can enjoy the football played by the men in black and white. As nice as the win is, but it came from the only shot on target in the whole 95 mins. I want to see Newcastle dominating other teams more often and not just relying on single goals. 66564[/snapback] I miss that too
  12. LM - you truly make some sweeping statements. Where have i said i was happy with the signing of Luque? i know f**k all about him. Unlike you, who appears to be an expert on his career from school boy to present. Owen? I can only remember being worried when we signed him, worried that we couldn't afford it. Me, happy with the appointment of Dalgleish and Gullit? Well, you didn't ask me at the time so i don't know how you know how i felt about it, and i've answered it already. I'm gonna make a few things REALLY clear for you now: 1) I was happy when SBR took over. 2) I wa
  13. There's not many teams can play Arsenal at their own game and beat them, to be fair, even if we did have the players. And nothing about Saturday saddened me. 66966[/snapback] It made me think of the flair players we had in the past and i do NOT mean Bellamy & Robert, however, with the current crop that was the only way we were gonna get anything out of it. I'm happy to see the team can battle it out like that, i didn't think they had it in them tbh. Parker & Faye were outstanding, Arsenal could have done with either of them on their team on Saturday, not often you can
  14. At the risk of being unpopular, if we're going to play like that and crowd are going to enjoy it, let's do it properly and get Sam Allardyce. It saddened me a little because Arsenal were trying to play football, we haven't got the players to do that anymore. Still, we won
  15. Arsenal to win by exposing our weak fullback situation, Boum and Bramble inexplicably having good games.
  16. I wonder if Souness and Shearer will start to isolate him for this outburst
  17. who says it's his own money ? See the point about other clubs being run nowhere near as well as ours, transfer wise. yes and no. It is his job, it's also his job to look after the finance of the club. The only manager he has appointed who the masses were against, at the time, is Souness. The vast majority were happy with Dalglish and Gullit. The only propaganda being peddled so far as I can see is by those who simply change their mind rather than admit they got it just as wrong as Shepherd. You can't say he is a c**t for appointing a manager that you were happy with him
  18. Please point me toward any post from anybody anywhere at anytime who reckons that FS has good football knowledge. We all know he's made mistakes appointing managers, so you won't find any, of course. This means that these sheep you mention are a figment of your imagination. Either that or you're just an outright liar trying to stir shit, like. How is FS a c**t for appointing managers who, in hindsight, proved to be the wrong choices? I'm not the only one asking this and it's a sensible question that appears to have many of you stumped. If you were around when KK left, did you or did y

  20. That's odd, i always thought that Shepherd authorised the spending of the available income that the club had itself generated, i wasn't in the least bit aware he was spending his own money all this time. Surely if the club has created enough income for transfers any reasonable chairman would allow it to be spent so rather than stealing it for their own gain, doesn't seem like an act of altruism to me. So, imo, Shepherd's most important role is in the recruiting of a managerial and coaching continuance that would push this club towards footballing excellence. In this regard he has proved hi
  21. Of course. He has fully supported all his managers with total financial backing. Why, don't you ? Before you and anyone else rattles off the names of Gullit and Dalglish, don't bother unless you said at the time they would be crap ....... because if you do think he was stupid for appointing them, then you must be as stupid as you think he is ..... And name me as many chairman as you can who have backed their managers as much as Shepherd has ? 65888[/snapback] As I've said, if you back the chairman then you must by defnition believe he will be successful and so back hi
  22. There's a surprise, now wait until tomorrow for Souness to say that Owen won't make the game either (but that he will be back for the next one, whenever that is). 65867[/snapback] Souness looking for new "door openers with pace" soon, unless he gets Santas sack Fucking clown of the first degree 65892[/snapback] I don't know how you can justify having such a poor opinion of Santa. He's a 'proper' Father Christmas i reckon.
