  1. Like I said though, if Keegan said that and it was the truth, then how could Ashley sue him?
  2. Who did we sell that Keegan didn't want to go? (remembering that Keegan said the Milner offer was too good to turn down) The Milner offer was too good to turn down - ON THE PROVISION that the money from his sale was reinvested into the team. When Keegan made that statement it was on that basis. He was lead to believe that Milner would be replaced (and not by an injured loan 'signing'). Keegan said when we sold him that "Every player had his price" - £12m for Milner was at least £4m more than his value. All of a sudden though, this comment got turned into "Whole squad up for

  4. Missed that. You do realise though that if Danny's right and I get a bill I'll be giving you a phonecall asking for my money. Not sure anything like that's happened to you before.
  5. It's tells you the price you pay once you put in the code, and before you make payment.
  6. Legend. Just bought the Argentina home shirt for minus £2.05!
  7. Fair enough him being p*ssed off, but it's certainly nothing to quit over.
  8. What harm could it have done Shearer? He gets to work for 6-months with the squad, gets to see what they're like in training, who's good, who's not, without the pressure of being the main man, and still gets to spend his Saturday nights on the sofa with Lineker & Hansen. Then come June when Kinnear's contract is up, he's in an easy position to make a smooth transition into our manager. He didn't spend however many years getting his management qualifications to do punditry for too long surely? Think he's missed a trick tbh. I disagree, only because often squads don't react w
  9. Would Keegan have seriously had any complaints had management sacked one of its employees? At least this way we could have got a few million in for him anyway.
  10. Aye but if the manager backs him then you have to support that decision. In which case, it's a lack of class on Keegan's part.
  11. With Barton though, you could see, and understand, why an owner might not want him associated with the club.
  12. I think that was more to do with several media sources reporting on deadline day rather than the Milner sale itself. The media also said that Keegan handed Wise a list consisting of Ronaldinho, Lampard & Henry but that was a load of sh*te.

  15. No matter how hard they tried, looks like the stewards finally couldn't stop the Sunderland fans getting to Keane in the dugout.

  17. That's where I feel a bit sorry for him. He was thrown into it because Martins & Viduka were injured and Ameobi was out of favour and it was the first game after the Keegan thing. To his credit he got himself a goal.
  18. Exactly how it should be, it's like letting a mugger come to your birthday party. Have we learned nowt from that Hull game?
  19. Hull are probably thinking exactly the same thing. It's got Wigan in the Carling Cup from when Souness was in charge written all over it.
  20. Tell you what mate, you couldnt have picked a more apt nickname!!! Seriously though, it's only 5 points between us and Bolton in 7th, if someone had said in July that come December we'd be within a couple of wins behind an Intertoto Cup spot, I think we'd have taken it. I agree its a small gap but cant see anything in our set up that makes me think it will happen. I agree to an extent, although the only two teams in the pack I can honestly say will be more consistent than us between now & May are Man City & Spurs. 8th at the very least is there for the taking.
  21. The Blyth match would be surreal. The vast majority of Blyth fans are probably Newcastle fans first, so would be an interesting away section that day.

  23. I reckon Xisco & Enrique will go out on loan to La Liga sides, we'll sign a left-back on loan.
