He's the new Matthew Sayed.  Over educated nonce slumming it with the plebs for some unknown reason . Henry Winter is the same background but appears to be a decent lad . 

Hes another mate of Glendennings, so he's essentially fully verified as a total bell-end.

And he’s a cunt 

Spurs supporter, apparently, so will almost certainly have railed against previous lack of spending by them.  Still the same thing - jealousy pure and simple dressed up as incompetent journalism.

PS Yes he clearly is

I didn’t know that but I nearly said I bet he supports one of the big 6 or whatever the fuck they call it now to accommodate Man Utd. He’s jealous as fuck then? Good :)

McClaren told talkSPORT:

"He's done a good job. He's stabilised them. He's got them playing a system which is not attractive, but has got them results with limited resources. He's in the driving seat to say right, put me in front of these new owners and I'm going to sell a dream and a vision for this football club for the next five years. This is what's been going on, this is what I've seen can improve. These are the players that can improve us, what budget have we got? "He's in the driving seat and I would say what a fantastic opportunity Steve Bruce has got now." The Magpies sit 13th in the Premier League table - eight points clear of the relegation zone - but have faced criticism for their style of play and troubles in front of goal. McClaren feels sympathy for the current Magpies' head coach - citing his own short-lived spell in charge which led to United's relegation in 2016 - and believes a takeover could see a return to the entertaining football he believes fans crave.

 

The former United boss added: "I've been there with no strikers, and it's a struggle and it's hard week in, week out. It's hard to manage in that climate. If I've got a new owner coming it with money, all of a sudden I'm so excited about the future, and I've got to sell that vision to the new owners. I want this, I want that, I want to fill the stadium. To do that, we've got to put players on the park who can entertain that crowd because that's what Newcastle is. Ginola, Asprilla - that's the kind of football team that they want, and they haven't had it for years and years because of budget resources not being there. If they've got the budget - wow, what that club can do. It must be exciting and Steve must be looking forward to it."

 

Delusional doesn't quite cover it for McClaren. Then again he likely couldn't have survived brollygate and generally being thought of as a plonker if he wasn't delusional.

If there’s one person whose views should be respected, it’s him. Especially after the sterling work he did here.

That gif reminds me of the time a mate of mine was on a dance floor and pointed at a girl, pointed at himself, and did a little hand shuffle thing in an attempt to entice her over. Suffice it to say that she wasn't having it :D

:lol: I read Paul McGrath’s autobiography a while back. Anyway there’s a bit where he’s on about his time at Derby where Schteve was Jim Smith’s assistant. He said he couldn’t believe the lack of respect the players had for McClaren

Video of Poch on Sky. He seems very open to coming to us. The interviewer was clearly trying to steer it that way when he asked if he'd manage a team outside the top six, and Poch most definitely didn't rule it out. https://www.skysports.com/watch/video/sports/football/teams/newcastle-united/11993069/poch-happy-in-london

 

Thank fuck that fraud Poch :razz: has given away his hand in his interview with the Guardian.

 

Quote

Pochettino spoke to Levy last week as he prepared to sever his professional ties with Spurs, mainly to thank him for trusting in him back in 2014. “I also joked with him: ‘Oh, you signed me because the manager you liked at that time, [Louis] van Gaal, chose to go to Manchester United,’” he says, with another big smile.

Ole's getting sacked in the morning.
