Can we just get something clear. Toontastic.net isn't like these other forums where you can just waltz in and suddenly make friends with people. We're snobby, rather perpetual and overall cliquey. 

Aye cheers man, may as well sack the chemo off now

I didn't know people were chanting that and I think it's disgusting if they were. Every club have these types of fans who take it too far. I've never been to their stadium and never intend to.

You need to do a bit more research next time if you’re going to pretend you support NUFC. Not here though, that ship has sailed :razz:

Research on what? Still trying to run with that one? The only stadiums I've been to are St James' Park and Gateshead's (for non related football events). The last game I went to was a one during the Bobby Robson era.

That (ie total lack of interest in / commitment to the club) coupled with almost all your posts (prior to the recent ones filled with mock indignation at least) being a defence of an incredibly inept owner doesn’t really make any sense. Unless of course you’re just here on the wind-up. Which you obviously are and not only that, everyone sussed you almost instantly. Do you actually think you’re being clever or cunning or something? :lol:

I could have seen the argument for Ashley some years back when it was being touted as a possible sensible option following the 'Arsenal' model, but the way he operates as it stands makes no sense whatsoever. He could spend £20-30m now, with resale value i might add, or risk losing £100m next year. And this is the second time he's gambled like this, and the first time the gamble failed.

 

It's just fucking stupid. Plenty of other teams are making an effort to compete, what possible argument can there be in favour of a football club that doesnt even try.

I do have a lot of interest in the club. I didn't realise that not going to the stadium to watch the club invalidates my support. I agree we have an inept owner, but I just have different thoughts on how to deal with this. Sometimes its best to accept situations than make them worse by protesting. I think we can still be successful under Ashley and sometimes its better the devil you know, although to a point.

How can we be successful under him though? He flattens everything he lands on both figuratively and literally.

By bringing in decent players instead of flops / making bad choices (Llambias / Wise and co). If we had bought a better striker than Mitrovic, we would not have been relegated. 2 or 3 decent players would do wonders. We seem to do business right on the last day. This is what I'm clinging on to.

Ah, so what you’re saying is that because Ashley has made loads of mistakes in the past and has shown no evidence of changing the way he operates, even after having a world class manager land in his lap, you think he can be a success going forward because the transfer window doesn’t close for another 3 days? Thanks for clearing that up

We are never going to get a better striker than Mitro because he won't spend more than £15m on anyone :lol:

 

Also don't recall Mitro being the main problem that season...

I think you need some help with thoughts like that. Very disturbing.

Most of us have known each other for years, I went to my first piss up when I was 16 and that was 16 years ago. Don't get excited - those numbers add up to 32. 

We've filled our quota on contrary twats and that quota is one and we let him stay out of sympathy or something.

Basically we don't want your 'different opinion' or your 'take on things'. I want opinions I already know well in advance and agree with.

We don't want to be your friend, fuck off. 

 

Signed,
