  1. Do you know first-hand that he's selling his stuff LM? If he is, and it's know what he has to sell, I've been given the details of someone at the club who will investigate to see if they could buy them and display them.

     

    Club were asked if they would like to buy them and disply in the club room, check out their response in the "follow up" article today.

  2. Why would we match what Liverpool were offering in wages though?

     

    ...because that's what you do if you want to hold onto a valued employee.

    where does it all end, -loyal employee, never. Valued employee, maybe he WAS.

     

    AC saw big bucks and so did the agent, who can blame them, what a windfall for them. Tell me honestly that you would not go for that.

     

    IMO this will rumble on and the Fatman will be laughing all the way to the bank, will he re-invest some or all of he £35 million, never, I guess it's only 35 casino visits.

  3. Someone's made a fair bit of cash by taking advantage of people's frustration tbh

     

    Say, hypothetically, 2,000 people signed up at £10 a pop, that's £20K straight away and other than providing a few pamphlets and holding a few meetings what have they done?

    I don't come at it from quite as cynical a pov as that but the last four words from you are exactly my thoughts on the organisation as a whole.

     

    similar view tbh, after all of the hype at the beginning, change in direction and status etc. Not renewed and no intention of wasting a tenner on this.

  4. the answer to the question......... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

     

    As long as the show is owned and run by such a pair of liars, cheats, cheapskates etc they will not get a penny of my money!

     

    And before you all say fairweather supporter, I have paid my money to equally bad owners, but not worse, over the past 50 years. This last lot of owners and performances was a a bit too much for me. Fuck Ashley and all he's done to my support and to our club.

  5. Nothing like a bit of refereeing bias to get St Jimmy's up to 11.

     

    I find a lot at games, that the crowd just want something to shout about. Watching the ball being hoofed at Shola from the defence just doesn't do it. A bit of wing play, or a nice bit of football will raise spirits...make people feel they're getting their moneys worth.

     

    Watching Nolan and Butt plodding about in the middle, and Shola tripping over the ball, with an owner everyone despises isn't a recipe for an electric crowd.

     

    The norm for the last season and more, just change the names from any of the 11 on the pitch.

     

    Boring crap TBH

  6. lack of ambition and all we have achieved is to add a few more less than average players.

     

    Time will tell, maybe I'm proved wrong and one or two are good enough, we are promoted and they are better than average players in the PL.

  7. Anyway. I can't really agree with being optimistic about Best. To me he is just another Tony Cunningham, in principle you are getting behind a player for the sake of the club but you are also showing the owners you are accepting shit standards. Not acceptable in my eyes, which is exactly how I felt about this club all the way during the 70's, 80's until 1992-93.

     

    Totally agree, average, even for this division, sums up ambition and aspirations.

    Well what are we supposed to do??? Boo the cunt? Surely that's going to make the situation worse?

    I think people not expecting too much from him, might be not too bad. Who expects nothing can only get pleasently surprised anyway. And although people have their reservations it is not as if people do hate him right from the start. He has also the benefit of people not expecting too much from the likes of Ameobi and Carrol either. So at the moment he probably starts with being the least of three evils.

    Obviously the downside is that if Best in fact proves to be shit people will probably start to boo him straight away. That's down to the frustration bred from the apathy those useless idiots managing the club have created.

     

    I have no expectation from this club, but I do expect at least 100% effort from the team and coaching staff, woeful of late. Would I boo a player, no, this would not be right, you have to support them even though we have some really shit players.

  9. i think we'll come straight back down if we go up with Ashley still around unfortunately

     

    As bad as the squad is a present I still reckon we'd have a decent chance of surviving in the PL in it's current state, I'd have us better than Wolves, Burnley, Hull, Portsmouth and close to Bolton, Wigan etc.

     

    And just about all of them will be in a fight for survival towards the end of the season.... if , IF we are promoted this is what we have to look forward to, can't wait for next season and yet another shit display of football with this lot!

  10. Feel for Guthrie like. He needs half a dozen games in the middle but he gets pushed out wide left to accomodate Smith, Nolan and Butt.

     

    I don't like this system of playing 2 defensive midfield players. Never have. You can see why Keegan liked Guthrie, he is the only forward midfield player we have that looks around him in possession and tries to play the ball around, not a top player mind but has the bit extra about him. Forest and WBA are by far better footballing teams than us.

     

    Before the game a draw would have been OK yesterday but having played against 10 men for all the 2nd half and changing the system too late, it is 2 points lost.

     

    Guthrie was shite, is shite and less than average even playing in this league, lacks basic skill ......IMHO. Is this all we;ve got to look forward to!?

  11. meh, overall am very happy with a point. albion were extremely dangerous on the break, helped no doubt by the shocking level of running in our centre midfield. dont get me wrong, both smith and nolan worked hard but watching nolan waddle about in centre mid is just a joke. he is imo the best 2nd striker weve got and should be played as such. playing lovenhands as 2nd striker tonight was a bad decision as there was no way he would be able to use his pace to get in behind simply cos of the way teams set up against us at home.

     

    thought dorrens was class. for us, imo mom would probably be jonas.

     

    How many times will I hear or read this this season, Just shows how far we have fallen from the top flight.

     

    On this performance we will be very fortunate if we are promoted as champions!

  12. Joey Barton is so predictable, he'll be booked on a regular basis, even sent off, lose his temper and basically let himself and the other players down.

     

    More than likely he'll get injured sooner rather than later.

     

    Most of which will happen within 4 weeks of his glorious comeback.

     

    Just get rid at any price, total wanker.

  13. http://www.skysports.com/video/inline/0,26...5698184,00.html

     

    Sad, patronising bastard.

     

    Same here, he's one of Ashleys crew as far as Im concerned.

     

    How will 1m a year "get the right players on the pitch"???.

     

    We had a lucky escape, if there was really any chance of Moat buying the club. IMO it was never going to happen, Moat is a sorry excuse for a Toon fan. The more that is revealed the more I do not like.

     

    Did this guy really bid for the club? Anyone else heard this?

     

    Was it £38mill plus rest over 4 seasons, if it's been said before on any posts, sorry?
