Who could have seen that failing?

 

 

They'll be showing him Charnley's Tinder profile next, if that doesn't sell him on a move nothing will.

But, for the umpteenth time, I'm not the one twisting on at you about it. You fucking moan every time I dare to have any enjoyment from the club. You do you, ill do me, and we will both be happy ;)

Summer 1997 has to go down as one of our worst transfer windows in history mind

 

https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/newcastle-united/transfers/verein/762/plus/0?saison_id=1997&pos=&detailpos=&w_s=s

 

Sold Ginola, Ferdinand, Beardsley and Elliott.

 

Replaced them with Rush, Barnes, Pearce, Ketsbaia, Tomasson, Pinas, Hamilton and Pistone.

 

We also signed Speed and Given but fuck me, we destroyed that team in the space of 6 weeks

Speed was a deadline signing later in the season anyway wasn’t he? And while he later turned out to be a great signing, Dalglish played him in the left side of midfield (of course he did). The daft thing is at the end of the previous season Dalglish had stumbled upon a system that worked with Tino, Shearer and Sir Les all playing in a 4-3-3. So he scrapped it (of course he did).

Kenny Dalglish set us back years.

I thought Barnes did alright as it happens. 

 

Rush was a compete waste of time, money and effort though.

If anyone on here has an ounce of sympathy for Big Joe because he’s been moved from his natural position of playing on the left to centre forward,think back to the decent job Barnes did when he was also moved from wide left to centre forward . Barnes just got on with it.

KK was still manager then I think and we didn’t sign Shearer until the following summer? That was the match when we had about 30 efforts on goal iirc. 

I was thinking of the run of results we had that included Elliot scoring the winner away to Arsenal in a midfield role and the season ended with us thrashing already relegated Forest at home.

That was probably his best position by that stage but you’re correct about him doing a decent job there. Rush, on the other hand, was absolutely finished

You're right. I was at the Arsenal game when Elliot got the winner and virtually guaranteed us second and champions league the next season 👍

It was West Ham (away) I think that finally put paid to out outside chance of winning the league. 0-0 draw? Watched it in some bar in town I seem to remember. I think it was our third from last game. If we’d won, then beat Man Utd away (we ended up drawing 1-1 or 0-0 there too I think) we only have needed to beat Forest to win the league.

Funny how I can remember those details much more clearly than any from much more recent seasons
