  1. Imagine we win and eventually get into Europe for real, or we fail and we do finally get kicked out just remember the excuses,

    we've played too many games,

    we have'nt got the squad,

    it gave us a good platform,

    we never expected to get this far and I am sure we can all add a few more, we've all heard them before.

     

    This manager, Mr Sourness, is an absolute nightmare.

     

    The best quote of all was when he was appointed, "the best squad of players I've had the pleasure to work with."

     

    Soon messed this one up Mr Sourness, when will it end....only when he's sacked!

  2. I don't have a problem with Viduka's ability and he will get more goals per game than what we currently have if he's in the mood.

     

    The problem seems to be he's injury prone (so would fit in well!) and he tends to dissappear for parts of the season.

     

    But christ we need strikers and if we can shift the waste of space that is but and get a striker i'm all for it, though i want it to be in addition to Anelka and Boa Morte!

    A recurring hamstring problem kept plaguing him, leaving him on the sidelines for long stretches of last season. He made only 21 appearances and scored 7 goals.

     

    Agreed, should fit in well.

  3. ON Fatduka

    His first season at the Riverside proved him as another of Steve McClaren's intelligent bargain buys. He showed great form in the early part of the campaign, scoring 5 goals.

     

    However, a recurring hamstring problem kept plaguing him, leaving him on the sidelines for long stretches of the season. He made only 21 appearances and scored 7 goals.

     

    He will be hoping for more luck in the 2005/06 season.

    Not with us I hope. Surely not Mr Fat Controller, he would be subject to so much derision, save the embarrassment.

     

    ON ANelka

    Vice-president Nihat Özdemir said no more transfers will be carried out this summer, speaking after the Higher Committee Meeting today.

     

    "We’ve reached our foreigner limit and won’t be buying anymore players," said Özdemir.

    Maybe this will help the Turks make up their mind, especially if they want to bring in any more foreign players.

  4. This might just be the ticket ........... might open the door for Owen.

     

    I would not complain if JJ went to Arsenal for that sort of dosh, IMO he's a bit of a lightweight anyway, still not sure if he's the best. Couple seasons back my view of him was different, maybe what's been happening at the Toon has taken it's toll on his on and off the pitch performances.

  5. Makes total sense, if you ask me.

     

    What's the point in paying his wages, if we've got no intention of playing him?  Freddy's been holding out for a transfer. This loan deal is the last option, after nobody wanted to pay out for him.

     

    We've been suckered into paying over the odds for someone with hardly any professional experience, on the basis of performances against under-21 opposition, which included world-beaters such as Jonathan Greening and David Prutton. His slow-pace and physically unimposing style  is completely incompatible with the English game which doesn't give him the luxuries of time and space which he requires.

     

    Quibbling over transfer fees makes no sense if the alternative is forking out millions in wages to inactive players.

     

    Hugo is hardly going to attract clubs being stuck playing at Kingston Park is he?

    I agree especially as wages affect profitability and ultimately reflect the amount of dividend for the shareholders. Well done the Fat Controller, certainly in the interest of the shareholders. At least the size of the squad remains the same .... ..Moore in and Viana out.

  6. If Souness was a young manager I might give him the benefit of the doubt. If he had shown managerial calibre in his many years in management, I would give him the benefit of the doubt through the bad times, I would give him time to make his mark because I would have faith in his ability to do so.

     

    But Souness has never shown anything to suggest he deserves time.

     

    History tells us he's at best a very average manager, at worst a childish egocentric bully.

     

    Some people seem to think that he will suddenly become a good manager after many years of showing he clearly isn't. He came here and confirmed everybody's suspicions about him, he fell out with the most talented players and moved them on for next to nothing and people are saying he needs time to show us what he can do. We've seen what Souness can do, he's done it at every club he's been at and he's doing it to us. I'm writing this a day after we've confirmed the signing of Craig Moore and the anticipated departure of Hugo Viana.

    nailed on.

    Could not agree more, when will these Sourness backers realise, when we've hit rock bottom????

  7. On the day that Sourness's appointment was confirmed I expressed my concerns and I have not waivered those views along the way. He is a second rate manager that only has a track record as a bully. He has alienated players in all of the clubs he has managed and just because he could not manage them he has sold them off on the cheap. Because we are now desperate, and other clubs realise this, we are being asked to pay inflated values for what are just average players.

     

    Just to remind you all here are a few of his famous quotes:

     

    “I am not a fool, I have been in the game a long time and the only thing that matters at a football club is the football club. "

     

    "the only thing that matters is what you do when you cross that white line on match days"

     

    Followed by "Craig Bellamy walked off the training ground so there's no way back I'm not having that"

     

    Here's a quote from one of Sourness's admirers.

    Alan Hansen Quote

     

    "Souness critics must eat humble pie as he transforms Newcastle."

     

    IMHO he is rapidly tearing the club apart and we are heading for a TFD.

     

    If Sourness has any sort of master plan its about time he revealed what it is because at the moment it looks like the destruction of our club.

  8. Then again, almost anyone is better than Souness, who is quite simply the biggest, most incompetent, despiseable and arrogant yet idiotic manager I have seen manage NUFC in over 40 years, and thats saying something.

    Got to disgree there. Little as I care for Souness, he's a genius compared to Willie McFaul. Or Richard Dinnis.

    3223[/snapback]

    Can't agree with this one. Sourness is total shit and incompetent, and also a bully, Sourness also wanted the job whilst McFaul and Dinnis were placed as managers due to circumstances at that time which were dictated by McKeage and co.

     

    At least McFaul and Dinnis did give the club good service during their respective spells at NUFC. Sourness HAS NOT!

  9. Might be worth a few quid on Hearts finishing 2nd next season.

    They are great teams, Celtic and Rangers, because they have both won 50-odd titles

     

    As for Strachan, its only his first game but he's just another manager who will never match Keegans team anywhere, which should be the standards we demand as a minimum like Arsenal and Liverpool do, and find it both amusing and scary that some people think we should employ him at Newcastle.

     

    Then again, almost anyone is better than Souness, who is quite simply the biggest, most incompetent, despiseable and arrogant yet idiotic manager I have seen manage NUFC in over 40 years, and thats saying something.

    I agree LM and TBH don't really give a shit about any other team because all I can see is a raging TFD heading our way.
