  1. I expect Souness to last the season because when we have a fully fit team it will virtually pick itself and I am sure it will do well.

    But Saturday showed up the stupidity of the man in glowing technicolour.

    To pick a midfield that included two defensive minded midfielders (with the more defensive minded one playing in front of the one who can actually attack) and a defender at home against a team like Fulham is criminal even with our injuries.

    Even if Bowyer wasn't fully fit (and if that was the case he shouldn't have even been on the bench as that puts pressure on you to play him at some point) Clark and N'Zogbia should have started in the midfield (even if it ment playing Clarkie on the right wing) or even Brittain who is at least a right midfielder!

    Faye shouldn't even be allowed to own any boots let alone get on the pitch.

    Barring an amazing healing for Emre, Dyer and Luque and Parker somehow managing to get his red card recinded, I have no doubt we will be subject to another stupid team selection on Sunday and we will probably have to suffer Bellamy ramming it down Souness's throat.



    Sounds about right to me. On paper we've got a good side. Until that appears on the pitch though, it's Amdy Faye. A panic buy to provide extra cover for the AOB/Bramble jokeshop in the absence of a functioning Butt, I hope. That's the only logic I can come up with. The other signings have been generally okay when they play, though it's always been "but we've got this on paper".


    One things for certain, GS can't get much out of a weakened side.



    That is just not quite true, IMO he could'nt get much out of afull strength side.


    And as for PL suggesting that Sourness is deliberately setting out to destroy the club, well I ask you guys do you really believe that PL even suggested it, if you do you're more naive than I even thought you might be?


    Like PL I'm so angry at the mention of Sourness' name, or when I see his photo I feel a great deal of hatred. I don't think any of us believe that Sourness is acting maliciously by destroying NUFC, he's just making a damn good job of it. I honestly don't think Sourness is even aware of the damage he is doing, he's not that clever.


    Like most of us by now we must be praying for the day that Sourness is gone, I get the mat out every night in the hope that one day soon..........?

  2. There was a good number of the NUFC faithfull fooled, at least 20,000 plus who turned up to endorse the Owen signing and 50.000 plus on Saturday. I would be one of the first to endorse the signing of Owen but what a master stroke by the MIB at St James', a perfect smoke screen, we were waiting with excitement and the anticipation of our first win this season. What we all failed to remember was, who is in charge of team affairs, Mr Fuckwit of course. We are doomed if we continue with the current regime of Management and backroom staff.

  3. I wonder what Bowyer, Clark and N'Zogbia made of the teamsheet when it was posted.


    Happy dressing room my arse, proper players well I ask you honestly, Sourness is a brainless piece of crap masquerading as a football manager.

  4. FACT is we don't try hard enough, just look at how many tackles made any sense or purpose, just look at our passing ability, we have recruited a midget to hold down the number 10 shirt and we continue to try and punt a high ball into the box, Owen likes the ball at his feet, can't our players understand this. Mind you with 8 defenders that feared to cross the halfway line yesterday I'm not surprised Owen and Shearer were starved of any service. TBH we were crap................no, we did not try too hard, we simply did'nt try hard enough.

  5. Our tactics at the match today was to play 8 players on the edge of our area (from the kick off to the final whistle) and 50 yards up the field to play Shearer and Owen. How the fuck are you going to create chances for these two.

    I had argument after argument saying that Souness' reign starts from now (when everybody else said that it started 12 months ago), but no matter who he brings in he is a complete waste of space.

    What manager in his right mind would play such a defensive formation at home to one of the shitist teams in the league.

    I really want to support Souness  but how the fuck can I when we play as negative and as shit as we did today?

    Fortune favours the brave? Were like timid fuckin kittens against shit opposition that should be mauled.

    If we were playin away to Real Madrid I could accept camping out on were own penalty area, but against a shit team who we made look good and we owed them big style for last season is unacceptable.

    He will have excuses about injuries etc, but who doesn't. I say sack this complete overpaid pile of useless crap now before our own supporters start looking for the rope.



    i didn't see it that way,but through injuries etc he was forced into playing those players,,faye for clarke and anyone for carr would have been my changes...will he get to see his first 11 ?



    Good post B&W, we will never win anything with an 8 2 formation, and I just watched the howlers again on MOTD, even with 8 defenders we were crap, still need LB and RB and a whole lot more.


    So Shakermaker you think he will get better with his first choice of 11 players all fit and raring to go. Get REAL, FACT is that NUFC have a back room staff that manages to produce prolific amounts of injuries, like hamstring, muscle tears and so on.... And because of this IMHO even if he remained at the club he will never be in a position to field his best 11. We have a comparatively small unbalanced squad of players that can't fit in even when we have injuries.


    Only when the total fuckwit is gone and we have a manager who can manage what is a reasonable team of players will we see any real changes and the benefit from some of the signings he has made. You can't fault some of the signings, but based on the amount we paid, any fool could sign these players at inflated prices.


    FACT again he has been given £50m to produce a team that will finish in the top 6, under his management and backroom staff.......... no fucking chance.


    NO POINT in even trying to convince you otherwise, you seem to have this blind faith that is prepared to back a loser.


    Papa Lazaru Posted Yesterday, 05:30 PM

    Some of us have never, ever been fooled as to what he is. I wanted him to prove me wrong as NUFC is what matters not being right, but as i said on the other board, everything thats happened was predicted to the letter under this shit.


    Fall out with flair players he can't handle because he's a child

    Crap coaching and fitness work brought with him

    shit, negative unbalanced tactics and players out of position

    crap efensive football and turn you into blackburn where he was about to be sacked


    Thers other things, but it was all predicted depressingly well before a ball had been kicked.



    Spot on PAPA, some of these so called fans that are putting their faith and getting behind SOURNESS must watch a different game to me. From day 1 I have been against the appointment of SOURNESS and have repeatedly posted this, I am now more than ever convinced that this fuckwit should be peddled before any more damage is done. Just remind me where we are in the league after 5 games?


    I will be at BBR next week and I fear for the result. I want us to win but i think that this is just expecting too much, just watch the BBR fans take the Piss.

  6. Related to this topic. Are the club physios fully qualified doctors or just physiotherapists?


    In Germany most teams (if not all) have fully qualified medical staff on the bench. Especially for muscle injuries the treatment in the first 20 minutes is most important for the length of healing process (according to the Bayern team doc and specialist Müller-Wohlfahrt).



    I'd bet we don't have the level of qualifications we should at the club. And when you think of the millions spent on aquiring and wages for these players we should have the bloody cream of Harley Street looking after them.


    Its always a problem at St. James often willign to push the boat out for palyers, but not so much for coaching, back room staff and the like.



    Any wonder with the likes of Murray and Saunders heading up the backroom staff. Would you trust and put your faith in these guys?

  7. Totally agree Papa, if the league doesn't lie right now, why did it lie then?



    100% spot on guys.


    You have to look at it very simply, the league and your position in that league is measured by the games that you play, it does'nt matter whether it's the local Pub league or the premier league, that is the measure.


    FACT is we finished as well as we played in the previous 4 seasons.


    FACT is last season we were in decline and if you continue the results over each season we would be relegation material right now.


    FACT is that is where we are right now, relegation material.


    FACT is I won't defend SOURNESS because he can't excuse the place in the table right now. I don't want to harp on about his bold statements when he joined the club or the excuses when things were going wrong and the


    FACT that in his opinion he should be measured on a full season.


    FACT is we have started that full season and wait for positive results.


    FACT is he'll be with us until end of the season so we have to give the TEAM our devoted and ultimate support.


    FACT is if he can't make it with tis team then he will be justifiably be SACKED.


    Let's all wish the team the very best of luck and good fortune!


    FACT is with this guy in charge they'll need it.

  8. Can you honestly say we'd be any better in a 4-4-2?



    We don`t have the players for either IMO the squad is just a mess.



    Spot on SM, when will some of you realise we just don't have the squad to support any real tactics. Not that SOURNESS understands or can even spell the word tactics. SOURNESS has totally put the team out of balance, not to mention his suicidal ideas of playing guys when they're simply not fit. That was obvious yesterday with Dire and Emre and look who turned up in their place when they had to go off.


    FFSAAAAAAke its a Total F****** DIsaster!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Souness has my sympathies regarding getting players in, its obvious FFS hasn't been going all out this summer.

    However from the few games I've seen this season he seems to be more interested in not losing than winning, packing the midfield is evidence to that.


    Maybe he is trying to build from the back, maybe he is trying to consolidate and achieve a respectable position or maybe he is just not the right man for us. Whatever the position I'm not confident of having him in charge.


    I don't go to many matches so I can't speak for those at the game but it seems to me that many fans are looking at the alternatives and can't see much light so we are accepting the tripe being served to us.



    The Fat Controller has given fuckwit SOURNESS £30+ million over the past 12 months, that to me says the Fat Controller has given his manager a great deal of backing. I can have no sympathy for SOURNESS mismanaging that cash and team affairs, I can only sympatise with us, the fans who put up with this week in and week out.


    WE should not accept mediochrity.

  10. But the killer for me is seeing Dyer get a reported £80k a week for the shite he produces week in week out


    Unfortunately it isn't week in week out as you said.


    However your posts are always directed at the negative side, overly so. Whilst I would say our club is in a bad state apart from player wise it doesn't help to constantly slag it off. Have a valium and try and cheer the fuck up. Depression kills.



    You are so right, it can't be week in week out, he's injured more often than not. That makes me more angry to see a reported £80k per week going down the drain, totally wasteful.

  11. Parker and Taylor were class, not one of the rest would I give more than 5, average performnce to downright crap, can't be bothered to even give some of them a mark.....£80.000 per week for a fucking crock does not rate a 1.

  12. Or maybe Sourness just talked down their true value. Don't forget Sourness went public with the disgust he felt with those players and for any prospective purchaser this must have had an influence on their valuation.


    I agree it would have had an influence on their valuation, especially where Bellamy is concerned...


    But as I said about Robert, even at a knockdown price only 3 clubs were interested, now surely if Robert was as good as some seem to think he was in his last few seasons here then wouldn't several clubs have been in for him? especially for free...


    For instance if Duff (example) became available at a knockdown price because he'd fell out with Mourinho, who then went and told the press he was a good player but was lazy and didn't pull his weight, do you honestly think hardly any clubs would be interested in signing him?


    Do other managers in the Premiership value Souness's opinion that highly?



    I don't believe for one moment that many managers value Sourness' opinion, and it was not Sourness' opinion that influenced any of the prices.


    We all know Sourness' man management track record and add to that the shit that emanated from NUFC regarding the bad boys' influence, the desruptive dressing room etc etc,. This all had a part to play and remember it was not only Sourness that this came from, when the press got hold of the stories the press had a field day. We were in the news daily and often for all the wrong reasons. These are some of the reasons they were given away or even went on the cheap, but TBH other managers do take note of the "goings on" at other clubs.


    No, you're totally right, SOURNESS cannot claim excusivity to this one, It's a TFD from start to finish.

  13. Most Newcastle fans haven't got a good word to say for Shola, but I have good word for him.





    He's not even that good, as long as I have a hole in my arse Shola will never make it as a footballer.

  14. Balls to Shepherd deciding how much to let Bellamy and Robert go for ? His hand was forced, and everyone knew we wanted rid of them no matter what. Who is responsible for that ? Who do you think, with your vast knowledge of the club, was responsible for Bellamy being told he had an extra week off pre season training [because he didn't want him back at the training ground].



    I half agree with what you're saying, The manager made it obvious he wanted rid and they wouldn't feature in his plans this season so Shephard had to sell them for whatever he could...


    However even though it was made clear Robert was available at a knockdown price he still only managed to attract serious interest from Pompey, Bolton and Troyes - perhaps this represents his true worth from a non Newcastle point of view.



    Or maybe Sourness just talked down their true value. Don't forget Sourness went public with the disgust he felt with those players and for any prospective purchaser this must have had an influence on their valuation.


    The Celtic fans had a perfect name for him......The Beast.


    Remember this:


    "This is arguably the best squad I have ever worked with but I know that I have to win something. The players know that and, although I'm coming in with my own ideas, there won't be any dramatic changes."
