  1. MY Source: My cousin's (who isn't in to football) mate (who is) did some business this week with a guy from Newcastle who has strong links with the club. This guy said he was personal friends with John Carver and the agent who represented Lua Lua and that he knew Bruce Shepherd (who i assume is a relative of Freddie, may be one of who can clarify that). Now, i don't normally like reading gossip because it's mostly b*ll*x or impossible to substantiate but things have gone a bit quiet on here I didn't make this stuff up and nor did my cousin's mate but the Geordie might of, ok! NUFC:
  2. If our scouts have watched him already why does GR need to see how he performs in the WC? Touraments are no way to judge how a player will do in the league imo.
  3. This is truly terrible news for me, hopefully it will stay a rumour
  4. Arsenal are getting their sh*t back together then If Liverpool sign a decent CB and a good CF we are gonna be a loooooooong way behind the top 4.
  5. Shearer will be the MOST gutted FACTAHJAHRASTA
  6. We need a striker who can play with his back to goal. If we sell Owen we might be able to buy Gudjonsen and Defoe with the money. Defoe doesn't strike me as the stablest of characters though.
  7. Renton.....people on here constantly don't answer my questions. I have answered what I have seen, you are crucifying the board for making one shit appointment, and attempting to re-write history concering the others. I have gave you facts and examples that show the replacement manager is what is important, not the timing. Manu appointed Ferguson, and Arsenal appointed Wenger during the season. Alex Ferguson was not specifically targetted by ManU . Liverpool also specifically targetted Evans, and the Evans / Houillier partnership, both of which were not successful and were change
  8. Given the money we've spent i think NUFC has under achieved since Keegan left. SBR turned it around for a bit. Given under achievement has been a consistent factor, what has been the common denominator? I'm well aware that you've seen the club in far worse conditions, so has my dad and uncle, but you're the only one who seems to believe throwing money at a problem is the only answer, well you and FS obviously.

  10. Used to think you were one of the better posters because you didn't post jibbering shite. I'll answer it anyway. I have almost every Mag - ever. A quick browse through those during Gullits time, along with the video footage of the day he joined the club, proves the utter futility of your comments. See above. Also 1 cup more than us, [along with leaving a team that went on to more] which we would have been delighted to win in that final. Correct or not ? For the record, I wasn't too bothered about Gullit because I wasn't impressed by all the "let me entertain you" crap. And neve
  11. would it be good news if henry, gerrard, lampard, ronaldo, rooney, terry, rio, cech, alonso etc. all left england? None of them would be playing against us then? But then we wouldnt see the skills and goals they produce on a weekly basis and wed end up with a league full of jason roberts! 138395[/snapback] That's not what I said is it? If Henry leaves, it would be good news for us in my view as it would mean a potential rival for the 4th CL place losing their best player. It would also, in my opinion have zero impact on any of the other players you mention deciding to stay or leave.

  13. Are Shepherd and LM the only people who think that Gullit was a top class, brilliantly successful manager? Anyone else on here think he was hot stuff? He won 1 cup? I think he's a pr1ck when it comes to management, you'd only have to a little bit of investigating his time at Chelsea to find that out. My dad & uncle were seriously disapointed when NUFC plumped for Gullit.
  14. He's been the best CF in the prem imo (controversial on here, but there you go) and i love to watch him play. Arsenal without him and maybe Campbell, Cole and Pires would be a much, much weaker side. I don't think they have the players yet to fill those gaps, although i also believe Wenger doesn't get much wrong. However, even bereft of that lot, i don't think we'll competing with them any time soon. Shame we couldn't keep momentum from SBR's time, but GS sety us back a loooooooong way imo. I think he should move to Barca to fulfil his footballing ambitions though. Maybe he wants to be th
  15. Personally, i'm happy with his stance on this. I think our signings do need to be investigated carefully, i'm sure Wenger does something similar. As for the June bit, i think that if we have any interest in a player and he's interested in us, he won't sign for the first other club who makes him an offer. I'll be vary curious to see how Roeder does in the transfer market and his approach makes me optimistic. Time will tell though...
  16. If he goes (and i don't rate him partricularly highly) without Roeder actually seeing him, it will leave me thinking that 1 of 2 things are at work here. 1) We are so far up sh*t creek financially due to the club allowing a person everybody knows is a pr1ck (except the man who employed him) to spend amazing amounts of money with a c.v. that's never even sniffed league success in England. 2) Roeder's opinion is not being sought on this matter.
  17. Are you sure? I thought it was another russian businessman who backed the front that bought Corinthians. 137427[/snapback] I'm sure as well it is something to do with Roman who financed the moves for Tevez and Mascherano 137430[/snapback] Kia Joorbabchian is the front and i believe the money comes from a certain Boris Berezovsky.

  19. Was stronger than Hughes (Aaron) i reckon...
  20. That's 'cause he's a good player.
  21. *kisses teeth and raises eyebrows* 136769[/snapback] 136773[/snapback] Just the weight of his dreads pulling his scalp back tbh
  22. You are completely unable to grasp the fact that everyone makes mistakes in football Alex. 136716[/snapback] There are mistakes, then there are gargantuan fuck-ups. Only an idiot or an eternal optimist would have thought that Souness's tenure would have been anything other than the latter. 136724[/snapback] Strange that such a brilliant board of directors thought fit to appoint him as well eh ? Along with all of those people who backed his changes, therefore backing the board appointing him ... of only myself, Renton, HTL and only one or two others said would be
  23. It's not wasted on me Alex, don't worry

  25. As much as i am utterly bored by LM's resilient but pointless defence of Freddie Shepherd i think i understand his position. He has seen quite a few very bad chariman at NUFC and in his appraisal of Freddie, LM's position is that the cup is very much half full rather than half empty. I see it as a bizarre form of optimism, less extreme than that of Gemmil's initial view of Souness but of the same ilk
