Their Lord and Savior, The Donald, was interviewed on BBC Radio Newcastle tonight. 
 

There’s a now 40+ page thread totally eviscerating the daft twat on RTG :lol:

 

I’ve saved you the bother of the reading the repetitive mouth breathers, by posting a summary below;

 

 

( if you really want to soil yourself, the fun starts on page 9 ). 

 

How dare you even use such a superb band in jest with these jokers.

Jokes aside though, look at home many Portsmouth and Bournemouth youth players Southampton picked up because they had a good academy and their local rivals were in the weeds.

Money is being invested in a new ticket office :lol:

 

Right at the time when their attendances are at their lowest.

 

 

It's like the Venice government going out and spending money on sun loungers in the morning.

A member of RTG has helpfully summarised their troubles

https://www.readytogo.net/smb/threads/it-cant-get-any-worse-than-this.1493812/post-30753582

I reckon after saying it can't get any worse after;

Charlton 3 own goals

Breaking the record low points total in the Premier league

Getting battered off Brentford (they'd be about 1/50 to beat us nowadays)

Mags 4-1 at home days after relegation

Breaking the record low points total in the Premier league again

Losing to league 2 Bury to make it 5 consecutive defeats

5-1

8-0 defeat at Southampton

David fucking Moyes

5-2 at Ipswich

A calendar year without a win at home

Relegated to league one by Burton Albion and Darren Bent

Conceding 5 at home to Coventry

Bottling promotion

Battered 3-0 at Peterborough

Unable to beat Bolton who'd conceded 5 goals every other week

Lincoln

Hiring the cheapest manager available

Wycombe

Shrewsbury

Oxford

Leicester under 21s

Gillingham with the lowest ever weekend attendance at the stadium of light

3-0 defeat to a team in relegation fight in league 2

It's time to accept it might actually get worse 😭

What a fucking club

 

No mention of employing and hero-worshipping a paedophile though...

Aye, why would we want to build a statue of a lifelong Newcastle fan who represented the region impeccably as manager of sides like Barcelona, and Porto. Came back home to manage one of the most exciting sides in NUFC history, leading them into being regular participants in the Champions League, before founding a fantastic charity that has impacted the lives of my family and many more throughout the region. 
 

Yes there was booing and frustration towards the end of his management of us, I remember many being mostly pissed off at the likes of Dyer and Bellamy being disrespectful towards him. Either way it is regrettable and was linked to the inflated standards the fan base had at the time thanks massively to how highly we had been established during his tenure (and of course Keegan before him). It’s obviously nothing like what the mackems portray it was though, and it must be really nice to have a fan base where you can’t look back with hindsight and point out anything regrettable from a section of the fan base eh. 
 

He did attend some mackem games as a kid, from what I’ve heard he did so even later in his life as well. He did this as he loved football and he loved the North East, not because he was a fan of Sunderland but they’re using this to try and twist it into their weird little agenda. They’re welcome to do so, I personally find it pathetic and a little sad that they’re trying to point score in an area they could just appreciate a true legend of our region but I am not shocked at all, it’s exactly what I expect from them. 
 

The fact the absolute wretch who posted that put “seemed like a good bloke” sums them up tbh. Sir Bobby Robson “seemed like a good bloke” :lol: grow up for fuck sake, the man was phenomenal, had time for everyone by all accounts, and was respected by anyone that knew of him. I can speak to how brilliant his charity is for our region, and I’m so glad that he got his wish to leave that as his legacy. Legend.

You could add that they built a statue to a man who was born and lived his entire life on Tyneside and captained Newcastle United with distinction.

good post sir.

it was indeed sad the way bobby robson's time with us ended. all the more tragic when you think what was about to happen to the club less than 3 years later in the form of ashley.

it's almost unthinkable now, such have expectations been lowered that finishing 5th would be viewed as a major disappointment.

that said, we were declining as a team. our peak under bobby was the 4th place finish, not the 3rd a year later. 

the 03/04 season 'failed' by comparison to those before it and the semi final ties against marseille proved a disappointing flop. dyer, despite being a little cunt, managed to stand head and shoulders above everyone else in his disrespect for robson, but as you say there was a general air of lack of discipline, probably reaching a head with whatever shite went on in the grosvenor hotel in london.

i do recall there was a lot of puzzled/bemused frustration towards robson's attitude towards solano who he appeared to have issues with after he reversed his decision to retire from playing for peru. nobby, if i recall right, was always hauled off, it became very predictable.

it had reached a head in a lot of supporters eyes, we needed a clear out of undoubtedly talented 'bad apples' or a manager who could pull them back in to line. shepherd mindbogglingly opted for the latter with souness in the role. within a few weeks dyer was caught pissing in a doorway on the quayside, souness opting to paint over this, but by then i think souness had already targeted bellamy as his scapegoat. our demise was gathering speed and the rest is history.

as for the mackems....

my time on this flawed but beautiful planet of ours is getting ever shorter, it's probably bordering on the impossible that i and many others will get to see the embarrassment of the mainly pardew inspired six in a row righted.

for this, i hope the horrible cunts disappear in to footballing obscurity. they can then collectively stand and scratch their thick skulls pondering where all their many percevied football 'friends' have disappeared to as it dawns on them nobody gives a fuck.
