The changes to the loan market doesn't really benefit us this year. We'd be better off buying experienced Championship players on a short term deal and young players who might be/should be good enough for the top flight.

Don't know what the changes are, just thought there would be a few top prem clubs who would be happy to see some of their future stars having a year under Rafa.

Absolutely fantastic news! Allowed myself to think it was a real possibility when Pako got the Valencia job full time but still over the moon with this.

 

As others say this is the best thing to happen to NUFC in years, just hope he's here for a long time and doesn't end up walking out after being messed about.

Right, that's it. El Coto visit this Saturday I think in honour of señor Benitez. :D

I usually go to El Torero. Are they owned by the same people?

[emoji38] I'm sure their menus are the same?

Aye, I haven't been to either for a while but thought the same thing and assumed there must be a connection.

Basically you'd need to loan for either the whole or 1/2 a season. No emergency loans for 1 or 2 months here and there to cover injuries.

 

Worry with long term deals for young players is that if they're integral to your promotion tilt, when they leave you run the risk of signing someone who can't make it in England's 2nd tier, let alone top flight.

Anyone been to Cal's Own since he opened a bigger, nicer place in Jesmond. Was there (again) last night, and it's class.

Tried to go when it was in Heaton a while back but it was rammed. Keep meaning to try it. The takeaway Italian pizza place at Four Lane Ends is really nice. And the lass that works there is stunning.

Did you see the grief the lad who owns it was apparently giving to anyone who dared say anything negative about them on trip advisor? Came across like a right prick.

Aye, I'm sort of warming to him though. He's definitely a tool, but you watch him in the kitchen and he checks every pizza before it goes in the oven and every one when it comes out, and he's fucking meticulous about it.

 

There's loads of restaurants that open and are lush and go downhill within a year once their reputation is established. He's protecting against that by not letting anything leave the kitchen that he isn't happy with and that's fair enough cos it's his business. And he can definitely he a wanker to the waitresses, but I've also been in loads of places where the wait staff could have done with a fucking bollocking. You get good service at this place cos the waitresses are shit scared of him.

 

And that includes telling people that they can't make changes to the menu by adding different toppings. [emoji38] We asked the waitress to make a substitution last week and she got this funny look on her face and goes "I can ask him but he probably won't do it and he'll definitely shout at me for asking, so I'd really rather not."

Haha what a tool. Mind you that's better than years ago when me and the ex went so Frankie & Benny's (yes I know) and she asked for a pizza with no cheese (yes again I know). The waitress said "well you could but it would be fucking awful". I know she was right but it's not the best customer service.

 

Fair play to him over the quality of his food though, it was just the thinness of his skin that I thought pathetic. Especially as the comments made weren't exactly scathing.
