Can Barton Resurrect His Career at Newcastle – We Think So

1:16 pm, Saturday, July 16th, 2011 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 178 Comments

Joey Barton has had trouble in his career, we all know that.

Joey Barton – we hope this player stays with Newcastle for a few years yet

And he’s still paying for his past misdemeanors,  with not being given a Visa so he can tour America with the rest of the lads, starting tomorrow, which was really an expected outcome.

The American government is fairly consistent on these things, and will not give any exceptions to sportsmen or anybody else for that matter.

The good news from the Newcastle Evening  Chronicle today, is that there appears to be no animosity between Barton and the Newcastle hierarchy, and things are now much  better between the two parties, and maybe Joey will even get an  extension of his contract.

It’s hard to fault Joey’s complete commitment to Newcastle over the last couple of years, and while he had problems in the past, you get the feeling he is really trying to put his past firmly behind him, and become a better and more mature person.

It’s always great to see that, when a person can overcome his demons, because it’s never easy, for any of us,  as most of us old-timers know only too well.

We like Joey a lot, but we’d love him to give up that Twitter account, because it could get him into trouble in the future,  we’re very nervous about his tweets.


Alan Pardew seems to get on great with Joey, and it could be if he had signed that contract in January he could have been the new Newcastle captain – who knows?

Pardew is resigned to losing Jose Enrique, and that’s  simply because Jose wants to leave Tyneside, and that’s fine,  he should do that.

We’ve had four good years from the Spaniard, but he now wants to move on and it would be better for the club if they sell him this summer – so  Newcastle can get close to say £10M for him.

That would be great – but whether that money would be fully reinvested we don’t think so,  but we do think the club would bring a in very good replacement for Jose at less than £10M.

This is what Alan Pardew said today, about a possible new deal for Joey at Newcastle:

“You never know – it can be resolved as we go along.”

 “If we get a strong year from him on the playing side and his conduct stays the same, then he’s going to have not just us looking to do a contract with him but many others.”

“That’s the position we’re in.”

Joey Barton will head to Holland on the club’s Reserve tour, rather than traveling to America, and he has handled his disappointment with maturity,  and has even come across  positively, as he told people he was trying his best to improve himself.

With Kevin Nolan having left the club rather surprisingly this summer, Joey becomes even more important in terms of continuity for the side, with the new players that have come in this summer,  so far.

Alan continued:

“I think Joey will be an important player for us this season.”  

“With Kevin Nolan going, Joey is important to the group and has been terrific this season.

“I’m looking forward to seeing him play.”

We think there’s a chance, maybe even a good chance, that Joey can get an extension to his contract – to stay on Tyneside – and we’re really hoping that happens.

We think Joey deserves it.

Comments welcome.

    After seeing the formation last night I am excited about season to come.

    4-2-3-1 Is one of the best formations in this mordern game.

    Alot of the top teams use a variation of this and 4-3-3

    So i would LOVE to see this type
    Simpson–Taylor–Colo–NEW LB–
    –Barton—–Ben Arfa—Maveroux or Jonas–
    ————–Ba or New No.9——-

    Thats a GREAT looking team and so many other players not included.

  • 2 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:22 PM

    If he shuts his mouth for a bit maybe haha

    Howay Joey spread the love only! No more anger please

  • 3 MacToon // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:22 PM

    I hope he does stay but it might mean Ashley having to sell up 1st.

  • 4 josh_toon // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:22 PM

    Can I ask why is there an advert for MUTV on a Newcastle Blog?

  • 7 sweendog // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:25 PM

    Enrique posted this on twatter .. said its one of his best memories in football ..

  • 8 Andy // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:27 PM

    Better that than a wwf advert with an elephant running across the screen! haha

  • 9 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:28 PM

  • 10 belfastmagpie87 // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:31 PM

    wait till you see all the idiots begging him to stay…haha
    jose,please please please please please please stay.
    we love you!!! lol

  • 11 JackButler // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:31 PM


    Aye mate, no glory hunters allowed on here, just long suffering, deluded, argumentative, manic depressive’s ha ha

    Haha aye wouldnt last long as a magpie if your a glory hunter…we just love tobe depressed around here haha

  • 13 JackButler // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:34 PM

    Just waiting for someone to come on here saying that Jose will not want to stay after last night

  • 14 cousto // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:36 PM

    JB should get a new contract. I was annoyed with his outspokenness (nothing if you compare to other players off field behaviour) but he always puts 100% on the pitch, which is most important

  • 15 JackButler // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:38 PM

    This kid is my new hero

  • 16 xmindcrimex // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:39 PM

    Oh, so the big announcement that were to be announced yesterday were the club statement about the pitch invaders?

    MA can predict the future.

    Actually dreamt that the announcement were that the Qatar group were buying up Darlington the other day. That would have been typical NUFC luck.

  • 17 belfastmagpie87 // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:39 PM

    the little freak,who makes up storys in his bedroom is on twatter thinking about annoying him.
    he deserves it just for this embarrasing comment..haha

    Belfast you have to make it your personal agenda to clean up twitter of all the bullsh**ters, you’ll be doing the fans of our club a great service lol

  • 19 Andy // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:42 PM

    He said he had only 3 transfers wrong in 4 years. Turns out 3 went wrong in 1 day!

  • 20 boater // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:42 PM

    Pardew’s comments above are so patronising. Barton HAS cleaned up his act, leads by example and wouldn’t be linked with the likes of Villa, Arsenal and Everton if he hadn’t been a top performer for us last season.

    I could see the footballing logic of letting Nolan go, but Barton is different – technically more than capable of holding his own in a passing, fluid team. I would have made him captain and put a bumper contract in front of him this summer…

    More stupidity from the club I’m afraid.

  • 21 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:43 PM

    The big announcement was the Entertainers are returning with KK as manger… find something else to complain about eh 😉

  • 22 boater // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:45 PM

    Bearing in mind the twisted owner – ok I can see that his comments were silly, despite the fact they are the plain and simple truth,,, someone has the balls to say the truth and stand up to a dark and malevolent owner and you all slate him!

  • 23 JackButler // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:46 PM


    the issue with Barton is that he can’t keep his mouth shut, slagging off the the owner/his boss was only ever going to lead to this impasse. He needs to keep him mouth shut and just play football and allow his playing to get him the contract he deserves

  • 24 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:48 PM


    There are plenty people pointing out how bad MA is Barton doesnt need to throw his hat into it in all fairness

    I think he just didnt think about the consequences during his charity do comments and his twitter outbursts

    If he had thought about it and not made such comments he would have his contract now in all fairness

  • 25 xmindcrimex // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:49 PM

    hehe, no complaining WWJBD. I was just trying to be funny. you smiled a little right? then I’ve succeeded. 😛

    Looking forward to the US matches now, but will also be eager to hear about the second strings with Barton in the Netherlands.

  • 26 belfastmagpie87 // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:50 PM

    what a knob like.aye 3 deals wrong in 4 years apparently.
    his ma & da must of got him a computer.
    in his bedroom for christmas,or
    he actually tells a lie and forgets about it 5 minutes later.haha

  • 27 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:50 PM

    haha I did yeah xmindcrimex haha

    I must be too used to people arguing on here I try to nip in in the bud without noticing humour now a days 🙂

  • 28 JackButler // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:54 PM


  • 29 boater // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:54 PM

    WWJBD – How do you know it would have been resolved? Bearing in mind Nolan and shola – two other senior players with a year left on their contract haven’t been offered new deals, everything points towards the club looking to get established players on old salary structures off the books..

    If they were given new contracts I would agree. Nolan was offered an incentivised contract,, barton is being told to go and earn his contract AGAIN… can you not see what is really happening here,, it’s pot at the end of the rainbow stuff.. there is no new contract..

  • 30 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:55 PM

    Cabaye gets ramped in the back on that video by some idiot

  • 31 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 1:58 PM


    Fella its all speculative, you dont know what has happened with contracts I dont know either so whats the point in arguing about it

  • 32 boater // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:00 PM

    It’s totally bogus PR spin, the true dark dealings of the owners go beyond our expectations every single time… and still the cheerleaders come on here and try to rationalise each and every bewildering cost-cutting move. saying we have this young, fantastic new side,, no we funking don’t we have cheaper, unproven replacements- names we vaguely know, and a few minutes on youtube to go off.

  • 33 belfastmagpie87 // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:01 PM

    spurs match is on espn,if any of use have it.

  • 34 boater // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:03 PM

    WWWJBD – aye but we know this – Barton has cleaned up his act in the main, has a year left and stated on numerous occasions he wants to stay. We also know the club have refused to discuss a new contract now. We should be securing the services of our top players and building around them,,

  • 35 xmindcrimex // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:04 PM

    @Jack Butler.

    God, how moronic. Oh well. Those guys will learn the hard way with long bans probably. Not that I would wish that upon anyone, but you reap what you sow.

    It must have been some personal provocation between those involved though, not that it’s okay to let your fist do the talking.

  • 36 jackdnufc // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:04 PM


    It’s just as reasonable to suggest that even if we don’t know the players then the management and our currently excellent scouts do. I’d still prefer to see Barton stay.

  • 37 JackButler // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:05 PM


    hate to burst your bubble but most people had never heard of Tiote or HBA before we signed them

  • 38 Andy // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:05 PM

    too early to judge if they are a fantastic young side seeing as the league hasn’t even started yet. Who knows how they will do you could be spot on and we could get relegated again but then they could prove you wrong and finish top half. It’s far too early to be predicting things and i would say that have a few french caps (Cabaye) is pretty proven. If you mean EPL proven fair do’s but there is only one way to become EPL proven

  • 39 Andy // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:06 PM

    i’d heard of perch though! And he was sh*te!

  • 40 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:06 PM


    We also know he, since January, has been slagging off the owner and club management. Both him and Jose turned down new contracts at the beginning of the year and he thinks he is the best english midfielder around.

    Two sides to every coin but lets not argue as its pointless mate

  • 41 jackdnufc // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:09 PM

    Perch was a Calderwood signing for sure, don’t think Houghton liked him that much but went for Calderwoods opinion anyway. It was before Carr too.

  • 42 RedMissionBells // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:11 PM

    Joey Barton HAS resurrected his career on Tyneside with the performances he put in for us last season.

    Barton is a very determined lad who is not afraid to play big teams. Very confident lad who puts in tough tackles for us. We need him in our squad.

  • 43 Enn You Eff Sea // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:12 PM

    Jose tweet:

    @Joey7Barton you Are so ugly my friend muyyyyyy feoooooooo


  • 44 Paul P // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:14 PM

    ASHLEY, SIGN HIM UP, ASHLEY ASHLEY SIGN HIM UP, ASHLEY………. thats what we were singing after he scored last night.

  • 45 Spike // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:17 PM

    I think if Barton had offered to receive no pay whilst in the clink it would have done his position a world of good as well.

    He has been great for the last 18 months or so, but before that was viewed as trouble.

  • 46 emperor // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:17 PM

    Give Barton a nice 2 year deal and everyones happy

  • 47 jackdnufc // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:19 PM


    I think he turned the contract down the last time because it was only 2 years. Think he wants a bit more money and but mainly 3.

  • 48 Toonboy_84 // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:21 PM

    Speculation: Reports in Spain suggest Manchester City, Aston Villa & Newcastle are all chasing Villarreal defender Joan Capdevila.

  • 51 JackButler // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:22 PM

    All the issues with Barton, he has brought on himself. It’s a shame because he’s a great footballer but has the habit of hitting the self destruct button on his own career, be it with his fists or his mouth

  • 52 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:22 PM

    People have forgotten about that imo. NUFC saved his career and lifestyle when everyone wanted rid of him.

    Barton owes the club a hell of a lot so maybe he should remember that when talking about his contract

    Actually I had heard of HBA before we signed him, few years back he was a “wonderkid” on FM when he was Lyon so I think that counts 😉

  • 56 boater // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:24 PM

    All true, but I still think you guys are slightly missing my point. If a club was speculating by showing ambition in the market and it all went pear shaped then it would be no different to any other club at any other time,, you take your chances. We are slashing costs, bringing in almost exclusively free players – many with ongoing injury issues – and hoping to just make a go of it.

    I keep reading about Carr’s magical powers,,,
    Tiote is Carr;s one single success – Arfa is NO WHERE near proven yet- and the fantasy idea many of you seem to have is based on one awesome performance against Everton – now suspended in time and place in your projections. One swallow does not a summer make,,, I also read on here by someone smarter than me – Ba is a stop-gap not a solution, that sounds right to me. They aren’t building a ‘team’ they are making money out of transfer and crossing their fingers we survive.

    I know I’m being grouchy this morning – and we none of us know what’s ahead.. so let’s invest in our future like every other team on God’s green planet. We know that we made 35mil prettty much out of the blue and yet that has gone to ‘sensibly cover running costs’ – how can you entertain that seriously for a funking second ?

  • 57 JackButler // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:24 PM

    As good as Barton was last season, the facts are we have done a hell of lot more for him than he has done for us

  • 58 JackButler // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:25 PM


    Football manager????


  • 59 Nick 69 // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:26 PM

    most people had never heard of HBA? He had been touted as the next big thing in France for years and was very much a known name, why do you think he’d been linked with a £30million move to Man Utd for 2 years before he came here

  • 60 jackdnufc // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:27 PM

    No chance. Far too old, we’ll get someone much younger to come in. Says he plays for Benfica now on wiki but I don’t know if this is true.

  • 61 Toonboy_84 // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:27 PM

    I heard of HBA long before he was with us. He was always linked with the “bigger” clubs though.

  • 62 Toonboy_84 // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:29 PM

    Beat me to it Nick 69

    @TOON_KevMac hahahahahha 😉

  • 65 jackdnufc // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:31 PM

    I still think with what we know about HBA’s past and his recognised potential, we can still credit Carr with that. The leg break was incredibly unfortunate.

  • 66 Toonboy_83 // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:33 PM

    Toonboy_84 – what u doing pinching my name?

  • 67 Spike // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:39 PM

    WWJBD @52

    There have been times in the recent past when our own supporters have called for JB to be sacked by the club, such as his conviction, etc.

    I think he’s great, and deserves another contract, but over the course of his current one he has not endeared himself to the owners, nor to the supporters.

    Everyone deserves a second chance, and I hope he gets it, but coming to NUFC was his second chance. He’s now on about his fourth, and it looks kike finally he gets it, and deserves to stay.

  • 68 RJM // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:45 PM

    Sturridge is in the Chelsea lineup against Portsmouth in the friendly. V-B probably wanting to have a look at him.

  • 69 Toonboy_84 // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:46 PM

  • 70 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 2:49 PM

    Yeah mate I agree I love the man but he does have a past and its fair to say NUFC saved him from his past.

    I do hope he gets a contract with us but I can see why they havent offered him exactly what he wants and have now decided to hold off on contract negotiations.

    Still hope for him though…just hope his headlines in the future are for what he has done on the pitch not at charity events but time will tell

  • 74 gorskino10 // Jul 16, 2011 at 4:06 PM


    Id say under 7.5M/8M.

    Anyone notice that news broke that Liverpool have Agreed fee for Cisssoko from Lyon LB for around 10m Euros.

    Then an hour latter Jose Enrique joined Twitter again!

    Wonder if this is cause he has decided to stay for NOW but leave on Free like Pards hinted at.

    Or im just reading too much into this? Probably :p

  • 76 toonfan76 // Jul 16, 2011 at 4:17 PM

    Think we need some decent cover for Jose, If Liverpool have got their LB sorted that means Arsenal and Barca (If true) are the only ones we have to worry about now. Arsenal probably won’t pay his wages so he might be sticking around til his contract runs out. I would buy M’Bengue anyway just to push him for his place.

    dont understand the lua lua situation. seen him play for the reserves a few times nd he was the stand out player 4 both me nd my dad. looked classy. hope we dont sell him, he looked a real prospect.

    d guthrie is crap imo, nothing but a very average squad player, whose prone to injuries. would luv to swap him for some1 better, as i reckon he’s only worth a 1 mill. could be a deal breaker tho

  • 84 gorskino10 // Jul 16, 2011 at 4:38 PM


    Wont sell him he will sign a contract and end of season on a FREE 🙁

    Shame one of our best young talents.

  • 85 DarloGeordie // Jul 16, 2011 at 4:47 PM

    83 – 84 means what your 27 or 28 respectively…. Boy????? hmmmmmmm

    On topic Joey Barton is one of my favourite players at this club he gives 100% and lives and breaths footy and you can see that on the pitch… If the owners weren’t such mugs he would live and breath NUFC….

    Fair enough he has made mistakes but i look at my life and i have made plenty of mistakes, you don’t go through life on cruise control give the lad a contract and let him repay his doooo’s to the club… 😉

  • 97 belfastmagpie87 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:13 PM

    thats the same frank from the tv advert.
    “talk to frank” “if your heads away just say” etc etc
    thats why theres so many nutters running

  • 98 BOOM BOOM THE 1ST // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:14 PM

    barton – sign him up now
    frank- idiot,
    me stomach is turnin at the thaught of a smelly cupped hand.

  • 99 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:14 PM

    Darlo least he speaks to the fans on his twatter, more than the owner does. PS sorry the owner has pardew to tell his lies. Lol

  • 100 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:16 PM

    Kevy I need some of that brown bread mate. Lol

  • 101 DarloGeordie // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:17 PM

    True true tony,

    Everyone always puts their dream teams up on here but it doesn’t matter how much talent you have when your manager is sh*t… I am yet to have my final say on Pardew but if we lose our first 3 games he is gone

  • 102 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:19 PM

    Belfast is Frank not supposed to help druggies, instead of supplying them. Lol

  • 103 kevymartins // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:22 PM

    I think pardrew is a very smart manager when it comes to football…But when it comes to transfer’s etc…the man is a woman

  • 104 belfastmagpie87 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:25 PM


    aye m8 hes meant to help people lol.
    if thats him there all f*****

  • 105 kevymartins // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:27 PM

    @Belfast i think thats the frank outa shamless llf

  • 106 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:28 PM

    Darlo the same manager played Mullins and Harewood in front of tevez and mascharano whilst he was in charge of west ham. FFS he will probably put Ba on the bench and play Ameobi instead.

  • 107 BOOM BOOM THE 1ST // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:29 PM

    @ kevy the problem is they tell him nothing he seems like an honest man but he knows f**k all poor chap.

  • 108 belfastmagpie87 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:30 PM

    frank from shameless!! haha

  • 109 GeordieToon89 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:34 PM

    CLOIN – how can shifting enrique mean geting £18million?
    yes 8million for transfer but we cant save 10 million on a 5 year contract what he hasnt got :s? only thing we would actually get is 8million and then save on his LAST year which will maybe be say 2million so thts 10million total

  • 110 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:40 PM

    Here lads if Enrique leaves he will not be the same player, cos he will not have jonas in front of him to back track and help him out when he has lost the ball and that is on quite a few occasion.

  • 111 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:42 PM

    There doesnt seem to be a fight going on…..whats going on?!

  • 112 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:45 PM

    WWJBD I am being mellow today. Lol

  • 113 carlton nufc // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:48 PM

    Any transfer news lads or anything from the Twitter lot it’s abit dead on ere today aye?

  • 114 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:48 PM

    Haha Tony wey thats no fun 😉

    Any news doing the rounds? Gervinho having a medical at St James again? hahaha

  • 115 belfastmagpie87 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:50 PM

    people begging enrique,to stay on embarrasing.haha

  • 116 kunal // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:51 PM

    joey baton went to las vegas for holidays check out his twitter account he has pics of him being at las vegas

    then how can he be refused a visa now

  • 117 belfastmagpie87 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:52 PM

  • 118 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:54 PM

    belfast shall we all go on and wish happy birthday to Jose….it worked so well with Gervinho 😉

  • 119 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:55 PM

    Actually saying that if 1 person wished Jose a happy birthday I bet all his followers will so I take that suggestion back


  • 120 Klatoon // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:55 PM

    Notice how all the ITK’s been quiet today,maybe we ought to have pitch invasions at al our remaining games till the window closes? lol

  • 121 geoff777 // Jul 16, 2011 at 5:58 PM

    Just when you want last night’s disgraceful pitch invasion to blow over in the press …

    Pardew gives interviews on a Saturday to give quotes to today’s online edition and tomorrow’s Sundays.

    I guess it’s his way of getting revenge?

    If not … shut the fcuk up you w@nker.

  • 122 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:02 PM

    Off the subject but did you see them lucky f@ckers what won the euro lottery. If I was her the first thing I would do would go and get a gastric band fitted other wise by this time next year she will be dead, cos she will probably scran herself to death.

  • 123 kentonmags // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:03 PM

    any fan that entered that pitch needs to take a good look at themselves it was embaressing and dissapointing i for one do not condone this type of behaviour from a few kids that cant handle there ale.

  • 124 belfastmagpie87 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:03 PM

    the gervinho stuff was a funny!! haha
    but begging enrique is just embarrasing.

  • 125 geoff777 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:06 PM



    How many bags of Walkers can you get with 160M ..?

  • 126 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:06 PM

    Kenton have you been walking around kenton shops today as if you are somebody out of Hollywood. Lol posing get.

  • 127 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:07 PM

    Aye I agree
    Only player I suck up to on twitter is Samm-eobi haha….and if he ever gets on it King Shola

  • 128 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:08 PM

    Geoff77 the whole factory mate. Lol

  • 129 DarloGeordie // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:09 PM

  • 131 geoff777 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:10 PM


    Would you shag it? 🙂

  • 132 belfastmagpie87 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:12 PM

    dont think stalking him,is gonna convince him to stay..haha

    as soon as september 1st comes.i will be deleting that twatter crap.two many clowns on it.
    tweeting about themselves eating there dinner being on the bus etc.idiots!! haha

  • 133 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:12 PM

    WWJBd you have went down in my estimation son, shola c’mon. Ha ha ha

  • 134 DarloGeordie // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:13 PM


    Its like a wealthier Susan Boyle, would smash them back doors right in haha 😉

  • 135 geoff777 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:14 PM


    Do it now mate, please stop posting about it if you think its bollocks.

    Post about shagging fat rich birds instead 🙂

  • 136 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:14 PM

    Geoff maybe for a couple of million. Lmfao

  • 137 Spike // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:15 PM

    Those lottery winners……

    160 million pound is the combined weight before they spend the money. God, I’d love to own the pizza house and kebab shop round the corner from them

  • 138 kentonmags // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:16 PM


    just a few autographs so far mate lol

  • 139 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:16 PM

    Jose probably wont be around for more than a year max but….I will still like him personally seems a great lad imo

    Tony haha loyalty means a lot man! And the lad has stepped up and played with large injuries for a long time for us….specially when lil Mike was out constantly.

    On a side note did NUFC 11 win today? They were 1-0 up at half time

  • 140 belfastmagpie87 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:16 PM

    who are we talking about??
    the fat bitch who one the euro millions?? haha

  • 141 kentonmags // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:17 PM


    won 2-1

  • 142 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:19 PM

    161 million would cost her on face lifts to get her good looking. Lol

  • 143 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:19 PM

    Ta kentonmags 2 wins for NUFC in 2 days its a sign! We are gonna win the double this coming season!

  • 144 geoff777 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:21 PM

    I’d do it if she bought us Sturridge.

    btw Mike don’t get any ideas mate … 😉

  • 145 geoff777 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:25 PM

    … that’s why you employ Llambias & Pardew.

  • 146 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:29 PM

    Geoff lamearse and pardew. So that’s why they walk like cowboy. Lol

  • 147 davybtoon // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:34 PM

    recking moyo was brilliant for the reserves today another top talent hopefully

    on jose if he leaves id b happy for kadar take the leftback position

  • 148 Zangwill_Ho // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:35 PM

    Love you Barton !

  • 149 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:35 PM

    Davybtoon would you not throw that dummit in left back.

  • 150 davybtoon // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:36 PM

  • 151 davybtoon // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:38 PM

    tonytoon – i dummitt is very solid from what ive seen of him why not hav kadar n dummitt battle it out n use the money for else were

    u at the match last nyt did dummitt play well ?

  • 152 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:38 PM

    Finally a ITK I like he has linked us with VELA! 😀 I would be chuffed….probably bull crap though

  • 153 geoff777 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:39 PM

    No one’s rushing in for Enrique …

    Tell him the lucrative contract decreases by 10K a week until he signs … lol

    If he runs down his contract … make him run up and down Whitley Bay beach all winter … then have an ice-baths to warm him up. 🙂

  • 154 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:39 PM

    @InsiderNufc Peter
    Clyne,Ziani, Barnetta, Long, Roux and Vela. Questions! #NUFC

    Is apparently the NUFC wish list

  • 155 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:40 PM

    I was not at the match last night davy, but I have heard a lot of positive things about dummit.

  • 156 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:42 PM

    Before everyone gets too excited by the young lads that played last night can I point out it was against a team 4 leagues below us…so maybe not the best wat for us to judge them just my opinion

  • 157 pizzicatochan // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:42 PM,,10278~2394418,00.html <- just so you know, Moyo scored for the Reserves… and there's another guy called Miele.

  • 158 Tonytoon73 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:44 PM

    Stop being a negger WWJBD, you sound like me. Ha ha ha

  • 159 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:46 PM

    haha Tony I just dont want people to expect so much from the kids and when they dont perform straight away they are slagged off haha also we have money to spend and the club dont need more excuses to use come Sept

  • 160 geoff777 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:48 PM

    Dummit … lol …

    Paul Dummett,,10278~1389866,00.html

  • 161 geoff777 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:50 PM

    So Llambias didn’t buy anyone a pint last night?

    Bet his sweet sherry came out of the 35M.

  • 162 davybtoon // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:55 PM

    id say the young lads that go to states will b the ones involved in first team next season

  • 163 boater // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:56 PM

    where’s our 35mil?

  • 164 geoff777 // Jul 16, 2011 at 6:58 PM

    It would be a good move to let Ferguson go … if he can hop onto the plane.

    He’s going to be gutted if he gets left behind …

    Good man-management Pardew?

  • 165 geoff777 // Jul 16, 2011 at 7:00 PM


    1 Borehole & helicopter fuel to Liverpool …

  • 166 pizzicatochan // Jul 16, 2011 at 7:02 PM

    So now we are linked with Capdevila?

  • 167 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 7:03 PM

    Think Ferguson is going to miss out on USA through injury last I heard anyway

  • 168 pizzicatochan // Jul 16, 2011 at 7:03 PM

    I know I am late, but this sounds new to me!

    Because of Fergie got injured????????

  • 169 nightfa11 // Jul 16, 2011 at 7:06 PM

    behavour of some fans is totaly i can understand ashley… its hard to invest serious give fans what they want when they abuse u..are sending u threating emails..insult u all the time…etc..

  • 170 WWJBD // Jul 16, 2011 at 7:08 PM

    Yeah last night in the Darlo match, he got sent for a xray straight away so dont know how serious it is

  • 171 pizzicatochan // Jul 16, 2011 at 7:13 PM

    @WWJBD, I can see Pardew wants to see if Fergie can replace Enrique. If the experiment is successful, bet Enrique would be in the fridge for the whole season. If not, then Capdevila. *eye rolling*

  • 172 kevymartins // Jul 16, 2011 at 7:13 PM

    Im sick of being bored everyday ..with no news what so ever

    this match on wed better be streamd

  • 173 ToonDownSouth // Jul 16, 2011 at 7:20 PM

    @ Tonytoon73

    RE your comment’s about Pardew leaving out Mascherano & Tevez..

    In all fairness mate, my best mate here at Uni is a die hard Hammers fan, and I asked him about that recently. He told me that Tevez & Masch were so incredibly unfit that they could not possibly have played Premier League football.

    Do you really think Pardew was trying to lose? lol 😛

  • 174 ross armstrong // Jul 16, 2011 at 7:25 PM

    no exciting news today then??????????

    ive said it 10000 times and gonna say it again…..


    hope im not saying that on 31st of august

  • 175 t00ntime // Jul 16, 2011 at 7:35 PM

    In the video by post 28 it shows one thing.

    if you look the first invasion didn’t bother the players.. : sammy looks and smiles.. cabaye cuddles 2 players ( gets bumped by accident ) and in total that took 1:30 on other vid’s it shows the stewards didn’t mind at first and even pardew and the subs smiled.
    It was what happened afterwards that annoyed the players and pardew.. when the stewards decided its been fun they get all the fans to the stands. and then 1 guy gets an idea ( think he was a darlo fan ) and smacks another fan, then fights breakout…
    If that didnt happen everybody would of been joking about the invasion. Thats why I think pardew will only punish the ones that went too far ( the fighters )
    and if not well then thats unlucky for the majority of fans who ran on the pitch as a joke and nothing more…

    O in I think its this vid where barton is helping the stewards getting the fans off.. a fan is trying to cuddle barton and first xD and then walks away with head down when a guy in white tells barton to move off the field xD

  • 176 Frank pingles come sock // Jul 16, 2011 at 7:35 PM

    Tired, bored?

    Why don’t you goto the Zebra black and White stadium of St James park and Spit lucozade at the ATM cashpoint?

    Or buy some fingerless gloves and throw roof tiles at suspect pigeons.

    Either way text me and I will come along, I will brink Kenny Wharton and Billy Askew along as they have just popped round to mine to play mams and dads.
