    @3 – if rayls and shola were playing and to their usual derby form your post match comments would make interesting reading. If any.

    Are you really a five minute fan?

    Do you really know nothing of the history of this fixture?

    Commenting on what you know nothing about is so sad.

    Only commenting on form lately not previous glories, in that case maybe we should get Shearer and Dabizas back, maybe Andy o Brien, Shola has been cack this year, end of story, doesnt deserve a place in the team.

    WWJBD- 1st name on the sheet, oh my word how blinkered is that.

    Cupidstunt- Been going to NUFC since Jim Smith was manager and Fires were lit in the back of the gallowgate, so dont come the im a better fan than you sh1te. Think Shola is a goud sub and would be good in the derby coming off bench, starting the derby would be bad news, Raylor is overated by Pardew, and doesnt offer a lot in wide midfield, dont think thats harsh, just fact.

    Shola is not ill , he has chronic indigestion from all the full english breakfasts he eats, Dannyo, im sure he will be back to full fitness shortly once he has a big fart. Looking forward to his electric return to the side.

    Shola ups his game no end in these fixtures plus he knows the game better than anyone else in the squad.

    Form has no relevence in these games

    WWJBD – Fair enough Shola ups his game, but he still doesnt warrant a start, hes simply not fit enough, gud sub as i said, unleash him with 20minutes to go.

    I do agree that Shola has shown no relevent form though.

    Ctt @ # 11

    Your posts are every similar in context to other five minute fans like Indian magpie and brutoool hence the grouping with them.

    Since you claim not to be one of them then you should know some players get themselves up for particular games and their previous form means nothing, which is why history means something.

    As for thinking who is the better fan that was not the intention.

    Although I do think I am the better person as I do not feel the need to denigrate anyone in order to make myself feel better.

    Loved it when big Andy drilled the header against the bar and Shola followed up wit an absolute scorcher of a volley 🙂
    The guy has great ability but it doesn’t show through enough.
    He must be a nightmare to defend against although not lightning fast,the guy is a monster.
    Shame he doesn’t get more goals.
    @check
    That’s pathetic takin joy in someone’s illness.
    How ta can wish it on your worst enemy never mind a toon player that’s sent mackems home crying and pissin in their bovrils

    TDS it appears to be the way with some, it’s poor self esteem in my eyes.

    In fifty plus years of following the club I have never found a need to publicly run down a player or manager.

    That is not to say I have never been unhappy with any of them, but to publicly slag my own?

    Never.

    Cupidstunt – you are my hero, could you please give me your dharma on how to live my life. maybe i did denigrate (i have just looked up that word in the dictionary by the way) Shola – i dont feel better for doing it though, in fact now that you have stated you are a much better person than me, i feel as though i need to turn my life around. Thanks for the counselling.

    Lads – in all honesty it was just a bit of crack, apologies for causing such offence, people need to lighten up a bit me thinks,
    cupidstunt – for being such a well rounded great bloke you certainly have a spiteful side to you, hope you can forgive, just like most good christians.

    I hope our dippy manager realises the importance of this match in terms prestige and bragging rights as i watched him being interviewed and he seemed to think the north london derby was a bigger deal the shmuck!

    this is what Pardew recently said and is in Soccernet.

    “If I can keep the same group of players I wouldn’t worry [about raising expectations],” Pardew told the Daily Telegraph. “But will I be able to keep my best team? We are vulnerable to bigger clubs and you can’t get away from that with the salaries they offer.”

    I think Pardew is readying us that its inevitable that we will lose some of our core players this summer. I’d say most likely its Tiote, Krul and Ba.

    I think the Mackems will have sessengon on the shoulder of the two slowest centre halves in the prem and young james mclean turning the oaf simpson inside out and before you know it the mackems will be winning 3-0 and pardew the wally will have been mugged and kicked in the goolies!

    For the record if Shola does recover from his horrific illness and start against the mackems i will support him and the team as much as the next man, and make no mistake it will not be me who whinges inside the ground, very positive at every match, but not blinkered.

    Never Booed and never abused own players ever, just thought id make a point before people make up there own perceptions of my character, people on here can now stop predending to be holier than the good lord himself (Shearer). Amen.

    Would like the blog to return to the calm undersatnding place it should be, seems a lynch mob was starting to form.

    Now then lads – resist the temptation, it will not be long and all will return to normal.

    Check – seems like you bore the brunt of jangled nerves there me boy. I don’t personally group you with the numbnuts if it’s any consolation, but I would say that it kinda helps to stop n think before releasing the Kraken! Remember, the lads on here have been rattled by many a planb-type troll and a careless word can incur all the frustration that has been built up in resisting such characters. 😉

    Bob you are the man. Listening to Pardew does have the effect of making you reach for the bottle. He makes Ed Miliband look good and he’s as thick as Demba Ba’s top lip.

    first he talks about CL…then he says

    “They are probably looking at our results and we are looking at theirs but it’s not about Newcastle finishing above Sunderland. For me, it’s about finishing higher than we did last year, to progress and have a great season.”

    ehehehheeheh what a character….

    Really think we have loads more quality than sunderland and if we match up there system with 451 then we should comfortably beat them, should make it a game based on players abilities rather than whether we have our ‘Tactics’ right, so far this season we quite clearly havent had them right in many games, usually due to being outnumbered in midfield.

    How can you play a 4-5-1 formation with 2 world class strikers? More ridiculous than a Pardew motivational speech.

    You seem to wait for Pardew to give an interview, the pick it apart to find some inconsistency that you can moan about and use to slag him off.

    What exactly is your point now?
