  1. Ashley has shown for a long time that he doesn't give a fuck about Newcastle United. It really wouldn't surprise me if he had very little part in appointing Bruce in the first place. He probably gives league a quick look every few weeks and sees we're not in the bottom 3 and as long as that remains the case he doesn't give us a second thought. Appointing Charnley to run the club is the bizzare bit. He wouldn't have a got a job running any of the companies I've worked for, and I've worked for some poorly run companies over the years, and none of them are close to the size of Newcastle U
  2. Almiron and ASM out til April. Dead cert now that we try to rush Wilson back and he breaks down and is ruled out for the season. That's us down.
  3. His double shuffle was the stuff of legends in the 80's.
  4. One of the best best five or six defenders I've ever seen up here. Miles better than what we've had for a long time. Seemed like a really good bloke too (which is backed up by what the likes of Gazza and Pearson have said about him). Probably should never have taken the permanent managers job after he really did well by virtue of not being Souness, but still left with his head held hight. RIP
  5. To be fair, I think they were saying we have a chance if we get really really lucky. Even then it's next to no chance.
  6. Shambolic batting from us on a shambolic test match pitch. Of course it's up to India if they want to produce a pitch that benefits their strengths, but when Root is taking 5 for 8 you know the picth is not test match quality. Christ knows what it's going to be like for the last test.
  7. Terrible performance so far. Our confidence is completely shot against these spinners.
  8. I'm surprised that someone like Humphrey's gets away with being as balanced as he does. The way the rest of them just stick to the same line it's as if Sky/BT/BBC are all enforcing some sort of part line. Or maybe it's just that all the ex pro's are thick as fuck whereas you have a chance of getting some sense from someone who doesn't arogantly think that because he played professional football he knows so much more than the supporters.
  9. That needs to be 6 points + or we're probably fucked. If Wilson is back by Villa I'll be overjoyed and amazed.
  10. To be fair, just having Wilson missing is a crippling injury list to us.
  11. I watched an episode of somebody feed Phil, and I have to agree with whoever said he's annoying. The show is canny enough, I'm a sucker for food and travel shows, but he's a proper doylem. I'm actually quite surprised anyone has given him the opportunity to present anything. Admittedly this is just going off one episode, Rio, and I'd probably give a few more a chance, but surely there's better qualified presenters out there?
  12. Rohit, Rahane, Kholi, Pant, Ashwin and Foakes have all showed its not impossible to bat on that surface. Of course it's not easy but better application with the bat and better bowling by India has been the massive difference in this match. Winning the toss and playing to the best of our ability (and Root having a blinder) is going to be key for the rest of the series. A few batsmen getting a decent score tomorrow would be great for confidence too.
  13. I've just had a quick look at their Wiki page and it looks like that since they were relegated at the end of the 50's they've spent more than half of the seasons outside the top flight (4 in the 3rd tier). The premier league has always been their temporary stop.
  14. It's got to be Gayle for me, even though I don't think he's good enough he's much more likely to score than Joelinton or Carroll. It's a fucking good job we beat Everton and Southampton or I would be extremely worried now.
  15. Assuming this takeover by Elaine from Seinfelds cousin does go through, and assuming he's willing to spunk a load of money on them like Short did, they still have the problem that they aren't an attractive option for players who are looking for anything but a payday. Most of us are aware that it's not always the easiest to attract players to come here. It's colder than the rest of the country, further away from London than anywhere else, we can't promise the biggest wages and we can't offer challenging for trophies or European football. Even when we could offer those last three we found it
