  1. article from www.twohundredpercent.net football blog With Setanta now collapsing, this close season is getting more and more difficult for Premier League clubs. Some of it, though is done to their own ill-thought out decisions. Rob Freeman has been looking at Newcastle United’s relegation from the top flight and concludes that the sums just don’t add up. It’s been a week since it was revealed that prospective buyers for Newcastle United had to provide proof that they had the finances to meet owner and chairman Mike Ashley’s asking price of £100m. Those that did meet the Tuesday evenin
  2. i think jenson just wants to carry on editing the mag and running the back page; great shop by the way
  3. are you a piece of that memorabilia PP. seriously; had good reports about the Last Orders; hope plenty can turn out cos Ando and Lowesy do a canny talk in. Gibbo at Holystone should be a good one for the locals who can make it there. he is a passionate speaker on all things Newcastle and with the fairs cup anniversary coming up it might be a good chance for some of the "younger" fans to hear some tales about the fairs cup squad while us older lads can look back on those great european nights, joe harvey, Big wyn, benny, foggo and the like.
  4. the patch on the back panel was due to a uefa stipulation that the number on the back of striped shirts must be visible for tv; hence the numbers on the plain background. I only know this becasuse i was given the task of printing plain black panels onto the teams black and white tops and celtics green and black shirts a couple of seasons back. i have never been aware of that stipulation being adopted for premier league. in my opinion the white "space" is there solely to ensure that we all lash out more money on numbering and lettering othersise the shirt looks half finished. maybe so
  5. Hillsborough: how stories of disaster police were altered - Twenty years on, the families of the 96 fans who died in the semi-final crush are still fighting to force police to acknowledge that changing officers' statements amounted to a cover-up David Conn The Guardian In a dusty library at the far end of the Houses of Parliament, among 10 boxes of documents relating to the Hillsborough disaster which were made available by the South Yorkshire police following a government order some years ago, is a statement from a police constable on duty that day. On the front page is a handwritten i
  6. It was KK that brought him in... Same as all those youngsters were more than likely spotted by scouts and recommended to the club with Wise having the job to convince them to sign (which he failed with a couple of promising youngsters, like Vokes). I think Volkes is a different case, he's played 30 times for Wolves this season, he'd have been lucky to make the bench at the toon. He'd been unlucky not to make the bench this season tbh... As much as I agree with the policy of acquiriny young talents from all over the world. How successfull this approach is going to be we will
  7. he's sticking the boot into Ashley because fat mike has tried to scupper the deal that Whelen set up to buy the Leisure Club side of JJB. anything regarding NUFC id merely us getting caught in the crossfire in a bitter war of words and business that hes been going on between the two since 2000 when Whelen misstuck Ashley for the gardener when they were called to a meeting to discuss business matters at the home of another sports emporium owner. these two hate each other; full stop.
  8. agreed and accepted; just 100% behind his words not; himself as an employee of SJH and his actions at the club in the 1990's
  9. Have to agree fella. I could list numerous things thats boiling my piss about the club at the mo. But he's right, what good will it do? It's the usual arguement I have that there's no point getting on a players back during a game, it serves no purpose but to make their head drop further. If anything at all, this is a time for pushing on together, lets kick each other in the bollocks after the final whistle of the season. agreed 100%. at the end of the season we can hold the post mortem and point the finger and the direction of those fingers will be firmly pointed towards the dire

    Preferred them ? and now they are ? lets face it; we are going down; Ashleys tenure has been a disaster and the sooner we wake up to it the better. he gambled; he has failed. he will take us down, walk away and leave a huge mess. will we come straight back up; probably not. NUSC has tried to open peoples eyes to what is happening. The sooner the majority wake up and realise the impending disaster that is awaited thE better. I fear however that it might be too late for this season.
  14. Aye tribunals are always fair as well aren't they? As Sonataine said the bullying was real, it was more than just one kid, and having seen the Under 19s loads of times when he had them, he used to absolutely slaughter the players in front of crowds in excess of 300, Alan O'Brien and Richard Offiong reduced to shambling wrecks on one occasion when I was up there. Fairer than hearsay imo. I've seen it. wasnt terry mac's son one of the youngsters involved in the tribunal too. might account for the Shearer / beardsley animosity that was implied in earlierpost; terry mac being best
