    Same old, same old!

    Were nearly at the end of the week and nothing.

    I think Ashley would probably have appointed a manager by now if he didn’t think he’d sell the club.

    Surely?

    I duno Stu, I think nothing can be ruled out. It may be a delaying tactic, he may genuinely want the best for the club, he may just want more money. either way we will know soon enough but i just cant get over how dumb he is, surely he will know that he needs the best team to get out of the league at the first attempt to get a big return when he puts us up for sale again next season. It is a shame that he doesnt want to have a long term view, all the talk is of selling, either now or if/when we get promotion. shame

    Off topic, I see hughton is being linked with signing smith and de merritt from Watford. What a useless bloke Hughton is. He would raher sign more journeymen than risk giving our top notch youngsters a go.

    Kadar, Ranger and Lua have got be given a run, rather than signing more also rans and has beens on contracts.

    Watch Hughton put harper back in goal on Saturday. What a waste.

    Not a peep anywhere in the press this morning but thats probably more to do with their obsession with Engerland and puffspice Beckham, the commentator last night must have mentioned his name 100 times even though he had a rubbish game.

    NickD – You can also bet on Ameobi starting as well and i agree, he is clueless, would rather have Richard Money in charge of the current bunch of incompitents.

    Get off Hughton’s back! This is exactly the kind of ‘support’ that has cost the club dearly over the years. He sees the players day in day out – knows their strengths, weaknesses and potential. One of the (if not THE) biggest weakness about NUFC is the propensity for injury. The current squad is thin, and the Championship is a long, relentless climb on wet, dark winter afternoon in some Godforsaken Midlands town with a centre back intent on finishing your career.

    We need experienced pros to step in so we do not have to play these youngsters when they are nursing injuries, or simply to give them a rest from time to time. Goals need to come from all over the park, and unless we bang in 80 or more we ain’t getting out of this league. Ranger and Carrol will be lucky to net 30 between them. Hughton knows this, pity the fans haven’t grasped it yet. PROMOTION IS NOT A DONE DEAL, and you are only dreaming because Hughton has done such a good job.

    Nick d why are you giving out that players might actually come into the club? The squad needs strenghening and i think tommy miller got like 17 goals last season! so for 2 million i think he wouldnt be a bad signing

    This Smith plays as a right winger now. He is a 29 year old Coca Cola journeyman. No way! Anyway he also played for the mackems on loan.

    Anyone explain to me what Tommy Smith is like?

    What type of player is he, is he any good? Championship seasoned player?

    14. Tommy Smith (Watford)
    Age: 28 Position: Striker/winger Nationality: English (U21) Cost: £1m
    The eleventh year of his career and one of his best despite Watford’s problems. Now a winger rather than a striker but still a threat around goal. A clever player in second spell at the Hornets.

    Sounds good for me. A guy that can get some goals at this level is what we need.

    Some fans have got to get the idea out of their heads that absolute superstars will sign for us. What we need is guys that know the league and give their all for the cause. Thats what will get us out of this damn league.

    Aussie Toon he is an attacking right midfielder who can play up front , Think you summed him up best by saying a championship seasoned player, dont think he would cut it in the premiership but as far as i ko he got 17 goals last season , so he could do a job for us. Not long term but could certainly help us out of the division

    Jinky Genious – I agree mate!

    The kids WILL be given games, we’ve only had one game but already 3 have had playing time and another 2 were on the bench. But come on man, our squad was too before last season and since then we’ve lost 9 senior players…We need them replaced, ideally with quality and youth, but, if not, with a few extra bodies!

    Also, think the Hughton bashing is a bit harsh, the man has always maintained he is no manager, and yet, has no option but to get on with it. Had Harper not gone off injured I reckon he would have made different changes at different times.

    Thanks Johno Toon – look we need guys that can act as cover for our very thin squad and guys that know this division and can get us out.

    Once we have got ourselves out of this division then we can buy better players, but I do not want anymore hollywood type signings. Guys that will put in for the club is what I am wanting. Young talent that are committed to the cause and will fight to make themselves and the club bigger.

    Ashley is a selling owner not a player buyer. Also – were these latest players on Shearer’s list? Of course they were not. Press and media crap once again. What have Sky got right about NUFC recently and we overlook that some of the gutter press also belongs to Murdoch’s empire too. Give Shearer the job so that we can get some quality in on loan with an option to buy in January. We are in the Last Chance Saloon without any bullets for the showdown to come.

    Morning lads.

    I havent been on here for a few days but have missed much.

    Been told off the wife of 5 years that its over – out the blue – BANG deal with that sonna.

    So Toon G is a mess of the highest order. Just got to concentrate on the little man and getting the house sold (ha ha) and finding some new digs.

    She is as cold as Jordan was in that interview. NO emotion nothing – didnt see it coming at all – no argument nothing.

    Apparently Im “Emotionally demanding”. WTF does that mean???

    Anyway thats my life – its a fcked up as NUFC and MA.

    Sorry to go off on one – but a problem shared and all that.

    Sorry to hear about your woes Toon Graeme. Chin up mate. I am off to get some flowers as my old man would have been 96 today – he played for Newcastle United Swifts from about 1927 to 1930. Cleaned Seymour’s and Gallaghers boots for a penny. Some of the dick heads who play for us now would want their arses wiped as well.
    Keep the faith. For those like me who cannot afford to retire it is all we’ve got. Thanks Ashley, thanks.

    TG – I’d wager she’ll find the green grass she’s probably expecting isn’t quite so lush pal. Sounds like unsound decision-making. She’s not a silent partner on the Toon board is she?

    Fresh start soon for you and your beloved Mags mate. Could be the making of you. Keep your head up pal.
