  1. Jack Colback

    I reckon it's a decent signing. It's an extra body, he's neat and tidy, has a good engine and won't let us down. He's an upgrade on gosling, bigi, Jonas and marveaux in the middle of the park. He doesn't take us forward though as he's very similar (no better) to Anita in my eyes.
  2. Why are Liverpool fans so angry

    Paddy Power are giving £30 away... Suarez to score at any time is 3/1 to new accounts, the normal price is 3/10. Maximum bet is £10 otherwise I'd be all over it.
  3. Newcastle United vs Sunderland Match Thread

    Absolutely pathetic display from beginning to end. Pardew has been hung out to dry by the FCB, but the lack of urgency and passion is on him. But it's easy to simply blame the manager, the players have to stand up and perform. No excuses for some of the bad decision making by HBA, Tiote and Sissoko in particular.
  4. Newcastle United vs Manchester City

    The deflection off demechilis makes the decision worse. Hart was beaten all ends up, the deflection takes it even further away from him. I assumed he thought gouff had touched it but seemingly not. It's a staggeringly incompetent decision. I really didn't see the mym tackle as red. It was a regulation cynical yellow card challenge - you see two a week in the prem. The fact that Nasri is injured is clouding people's judgement.
  5. Nothing to see here version 2.0

    Looks like the president is not quite on the verge of a bidding war...
  6. The Cricket Thread

    Andy flower alluded to the fact that England haven't scored 400+ for a very long time. The signs were there for a while, our top order have basically been found out, Australia have spotted weaknesses and had the patience to bowl to very good plans and the England players have been unable or unwilling (KP) to adapt. The bowling in the main has been good, but Johnson was head and shoulders above everyone else.
  7. West Bromwich Albion v Newcastle United

    Utterly stupid tackle...
  8. Mathieu Debuchy

    Classic example of someone who needed time to settle in to a new league. He's been instrumental in our good run of form. You can also see why he was such a fans favourite at Lille, he works very hard.
  9. Yohan Cabaye

    I don't think any of that lot can replace him. He's head and shoulders more influencial than any of them, he controls matches for us. Both Tiote and Cabaye look much more saleable assets this season than last, so we've got to expect better offers in the next two windows.
  10. What mood are you in and why?

    Nah, thankfully it was through a recruiter so I just told them i'm not gonna be there monday. i sent the chief exec a courtesy email, but he's not responded. Now got a week off before I start in new role.
  11. What mood are you in and why?

    Over the moon.... Got the new role.. Today's my leaving drinks so a night on the celebratory sauce awaits.
  12. Newcastle United vs West Brom

    Their enormous centre halves seem to score a lot of goals though.
  13. player of the month for november

    I take it back.. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/8252347.stm Williamson, for the same reason..
  14. player of the month for november

    I'd go for Shola, he's probably never won it in 13 years. If not this month it'll be never...
  15. What mood are you in and why?

    They know that I have another offer and that my notice is in and they've moved very quickly to get me in twice. That's one of the reasons I feel pretty confident of getting an offer from them.
  16. What mood are you in and why?

    Me too. Cheers I think it's very unlikely TBH. It's whether they have the contacts and venom to muddy my name more widely within the industry.
  17. What mood are you in and why?

    It'll undoubtedly makes me a cathword in the eyes of the employer. But: Job 1 - 90 minute commute, no bens, small company, no real ability to progress Job 2 - 30 minute commute, loads of perks, massive company, all sorts of progression opportunities It's not even close. It may be that I'll get an answer from the better job this week and just never join the other company. I haven't signed a contract yet and it states that during the probationary period either party can give a week's notice.
  18. What are you drinking?

    It's rank stuff, it has no redeeming features, apart from the potential for giving third degree burns to pissed up arseholes. I'd wager no one has ever drunk it sober.
  19. What mood are you in and why?

    The situation has become a bit more complicated. Due to start the new job next week. But I have a second interview for a different (better) job on Thursday and they've given very strong indications that I'll get it. Could well find myself in a situation where I am starting a job and leaving within a few days - that'll make me popular. Anyone done this, had an employee do it?
  20. Other Games Other Games

    More bad refereeing over the weekend. The Wes Brown tackle was hard and fair, his legs came up after the tackle and made it look more dangerous than it was. I think 9/10 times Bolasie gets a yellow card and that would be right. Mirallas has to go as does Rooney. Medel will do well to escape a ban, but the ref didn't see it. On the flip side, well played Clattenburg though for giving a penalty for the shirt pulling. Brave decision, which most wouldn't bother with.
  21. What mood are you in and why?

    A bit demob happy. Start a new job in a week's time and playing out time. Quite gutted I didn't get put on gardening leave.
  22. what is your biggest pet peeve?

    Shelling out £450 a month to stand on a train perilously close to another man's armpit.
  23. Tottenham Hotspur v Newcastle United

    I don't think playing in Europe is a fitness issue, but it can be a tactical issue and one of momentum. When you are playing well it can actually be an advantage to be playing twice a week - see our Championship season. It's when you are not playing well that it's hard to dedicate time to improving attack wise/eradicating mistakes.
  24. Yoan Gouffran

    The tackle that Gouffran made that led to the goal on Sunday was a joke. No central midfielder should be losing that challenge.
  25. Newcastle United v Norwich City

    I wouldn't change it, nobody deserves to be dropped and Ben Arfa's form doesn't warrant selection. Start 4-4-2 and if necessary he can shuffle that round to a 4-3-3 with Remy and Gouff either side of Shola.
