    Repost for effect –

    Well I’ve seen spectacle in sport-watching today but it wasn’t the newcastle game. Team GB lasses knocking world records over like daisies, totally owning all-comers and getting gold in total style. That’s sport on hdtv for you. Still 3rd n the medal tables, is our tiny little island? anyone done a per capita count of where we should be in the table? I bet that would look interesting.

  • 6 Beattie25 // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:30 PM

    Spellcheck

    It will be great to watch all those new signings.

    Vertonghen, Siggurdson, Adebayor and who knows maybe even Remy.

    Newzealand top that BIZZARE

    Thought Tiote was class

  • 9 lukes26 // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:32 PM

    no one really played above average.

  • 10 Ruddy Marveaux-lous // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:32 PM

    I am going to keep this brief.

    Following what I see as unfair attacks due to having an opinion (shocking I know, how dare I?) I have decided that I am merely going to be a blog reader from now on. Not to bow to public opinion but because I am sick of constantly being targeted by people who I neither know nor care for.

    See ya later dickheads.

  • 11 Conaldo (The Wizard) // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:32 PM

    Woody92 once again who cares if your’e first???!!!

  • 12 Conaldo (The Wizard) // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:32 PM

    You’re*

  • 13 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:33 PM

    Nice one Spellcheck wish I could afford it!

    Streams were well dodgy for me and lost most of the second half.. But I’ve given it to demba ba, some lovely touches I thought and cisse was all owa aswell… They’re gonna cause mayhem this season hahaa!
    And aye, obertan’s startin to look quite the right midfielder, if he keeps it up. Remember jimmy perch!! Perchinio!!!

  • 14 Beattie25 // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:33 PM

    Tsunki

    If you take into account the conolisation of the world that our tiny island was accountable for, the empire and commonwealth that still has validity in this modern world than we can claim the medals of many other countries putting us top of the pile.

  • 15 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:34 PM

    Ruddy what’s up with you haha

  • 16 Conaldo (The Wizard) // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:34 PM

    Ruddy- I agreed with most of you’re opinions, so it’s unfortunate that you feel you have to leave. I hope to see you back with another name lol. See how long it takes you to get figured out.

    See you

  • 17 2_goal_tino // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:34 PM

    @ Tsunki – NZ win by Both golds and total medals. Look here:

  • 18 Beattie25 // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:36 PM

    Ruddy

    Don’t let them force you off.

    A better man should neither care for their opinion nor seek it.

  • 19 MagpiesFlyHigh // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:37 PM

    Ruddy

    just change your name…come back as Beattie24 or AMOEBA or THUMPER and really confuse (and annoy) us mortals

  • 20 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:38 PM

    Ruddy…If that really is the case, then that is a shame. For me anyway.

    I’ll put my idiotic thoughts out there and see if they can hit home for anyone out there.

    This is a blog for opinions. If you want to engage in discussion with a poster then do. Whether that is to agree, disagree, whatever.

    However, if it’s just to hurl abuse at someone, leave it out. You don’t need to like everyone on here and nor do you have to have everyone like you.

    If you feel your opinions are valid, bring them forward. If you don’t have what it takes to back them up, then perhaps you shouldn’t be on a public forum like this one.

    If you feel someone is attacking you, then tell them that’s how you feel and choose to ignore them. It’s really not that hard.

    Welcome to blogging people.

  • 21 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:38 PM

    Aaah man. You’ve always seemed areet to me ruddy. Internet’s a shit for pi55in people off

    I’m excited about this season big time, with this current squad. I’m happy with it we’ve got a class team. Even poor simmo bless I’m. I do hope this debauchy saga is a massive game and we’ve had him in the bag for months tho

  • 22 Beardo Ameobi // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:38 PM

    “All the world is a stage.”

    Ruddy is going to break out into the gay anthem ‘I am what I am’ with his next post, watch!

  • 23 welshy14 // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:39 PM

    Overran lol was are best player but a very average performance but are last ore season was awful and look we’re we ended up we will get are new players in be patient

  • 25 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:44 PM

    What, erm, what’s happened with women’s gold or something? Have the ladies won gold? I haven’t watched a thing bar a couple of games at the stadium. And google will irritate me haha

  • 26 2_goal_tino // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:44 PM

    You corrected pre but decided to keep ‘are’ and ‘we’re’ in!

  • 27 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:44 PM

    It is a shame like I do love comments he provides (sometimes).
    Beardo, I was thinking the same thing right? ;)

  • 28 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:45 PM

    Ahhh cmon ruddy lad its only kevy “out of date jokes” matins and breno95 who clearly doesnt understand the concept of sarcasm as he used thumps cheeky little post earlier as a serious qoute, the tool! This blog is for every1s opinions unfortunatly there are some lads who cant seem to actually make an arguement but can only resort to name calling

  • 29 Ketsbaia9 // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:46 PM

    We need to sign at least 5/6 first team players. We don’t have enough strength in depth. If Cabaye is unavailable, Abeid will be in the team. He deserves his chance. Looks a great player. We didn’t sign the players we needed in january and ended up missing out on the champions league.

    We can’t afford to make that mistake again. 5/6 new players will turn us into a top 4 team instead of a mid-table outfit.

    I’m annoyed that Arsenal and Spurs have strengthen and we haven’t even signed one first team player yet. What the hell are we playing at? We’re apparently well off financially, so what the frigging hell is going on?

  • 30 welshy14 // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:46 PM

    As long as you get the jist tino ha that’s all that matters ha

  • 31 WWYCD // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:47 PM

    Ruddy
    Howay lad as a wise man once said ‘Playas, they gonna play, And haters, they gonna hate’

    And since ur a reader now ull read this only thing ur doing by not posting is letting them win

  • 32 Spuggy // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:48 PM

    My only concern is that the first 11 haven’t played together much and we’re one friendly away from a gruelling schedule starting with the spuds.

  • 33 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:48 PM

    @YO you sir are a true poet! ;)

  • 34 Toon1978 // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:49 PM

    Ruddy Marveaux-lous

    Chill out mann lol. You seem a little sensitive. Blog is all about opinions and we are all entitled to give them. Don’t leave mate, i enjoy your posts :)

  • 35 welshy14 // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:49 PM

    If we win our qualifier for euros do you not think Ashley will spend that extra mill or two on are main targets ketsbia

  • 36 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:49 PM

    Ruddy – speaking from experience, it would be a shame if you stayed off the blog. I realised that after a while that the d**kheads soon run out of ideas and fuel, so stay with us, stay away from the light.

    Posters like Ruddy are the glowing coals of the fire of the blog.

  • 37 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:50 PM

    Ruddy…Also posted this before you’re announcement on the previous thread…

    Ruddy….Does it make you feel like you can’t come on here anymore? A bit like people have claimed OV made people leave the blog? No? Oh right, they’re just being a bit pathetic? Well, that’s what I thought also, but I really don’t know what end is up anymore. Are my feet supposed to be nearer the ceiling than my head?

  • 38 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:50 PM

    Lads my link was truely shocking! Was vuckic any good today? Genuinly worried this lads chance will slip away if he doesnt step up a bit this season

  • 39 jonobbad // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:50 PM

    Quick close your eyes.
    Tads is gonna be T bagging Ruddy again anytime now!

  • 40 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:51 PM

    Bring Back Ruddy

    :) :) :)

  • 41 Kyo // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:51 PM

    I’m not voting. They were all pretty dull unfortunately.

  • 42 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:53 PM

    Ketsabia.. Why would you replace 5 or 6 first teamers? Or do you mean as immediate replacements?

    Because out of 25 players if you could have 2 world class in every position your gonna win the world super club cup. We can’t financially afford that.

  • 43 Toon1978 // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:53 PM

    I have been blogging on here from almost its infancy. I have seen very few real haters.Plenty of WUMS mind.

  • 44 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:54 PM

    Jonnonbbad thanks for proving my point buddy!
    Oh and have a scroll down youll see most ppl dont see the point in personal attacks on the lad because some ppl are to stupid to try and get there point across with out insulting ppl

  • 45 BelfastMagpie87 // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:54 PM

    Goodbye Ruddy…

  • 46 Toon1978 // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:55 PM

    toonarmydownsouth

    My link was bad also. IMO i think Vuckic looks unhappy. I don’t know i might be reading to much into it. Maybe a season out on loan again.

  • 47 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:58 PM

    This is all down to Pardew and Ashley. Pitchforks at the ready.

  • 48 MagpiesFlyHigh // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:59 PM

    Ruddy

    Am off out so this is a last message of support.
    I can’t recall ever being annoyed by your posts or sense of humour.
    Think you should be cool about it and keep on keeping on.

  • 49 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 6:59 PM

    Toon 1978 aye a loan would be a good shout if he really isnt in the first team plans would hope he is tho

  • 50 kevymartins // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:00 PM

    Aw my god going on this blog is like watching an episode of jersey shore

  • 51 jonobbad // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:01 PM

    No, you are like his little bull dog that joins in when he’s having a go at someone. EVERYTIME

  • 52 Magpies-till-d3ath // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:03 PM

    Of all the teams Elia could have went to………..Werder Bremen, surely that’s a p**s take!

  • 53 Ian Toon // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:03 PM

    Ruddy- For what it’s worth . You don’t always judge people on the way they treat you but the way they treat other people. I personally consider you good value particularly when you don’t digress to merely promoting yourself. I have always preferred to be underestimated but then I am also an optimist. It’s not about you.

  • 54 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:03 PM

    Kevymartins,

    What’s wrong with jerseyshore? I prefer geordieshore mind.

  • 55 Ian Toon // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:04 PM

    End of- back to the football.

  • 56 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:05 PM

    Jonobbad ah is this cos you were throwing a hissy fit the other night n i didnt think it was on? Oh and thats once

  • 57 kevymartins // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:06 PM

    @ibiza you up for a very violent debate? lol only joking

  • 58 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:06 PM

    Ian toon did you have adecent link? Teally wanna know how vuckic did!!

  • 59 BelfastMagpie87 // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:07 PM

    Whos the little bulldog?
    im curious.

  • 60 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:08 PM

    Tads,
    He wasn’t good.. He wasn’t bad, that’s all

  • 61 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:09 PM

    Belfast me apparantly i dont why just because i like pissing on lamp posts and rutting ppls legs!

  • 62 jonobbad // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:10 PM

    Throwing a hissy fit?
    That’s you’re interpretation of it? Calling ruddy out, for twisting posts and being high and mighty.
    And because he is one of the regulars, i got jumped on by you. Wind your neck in son!!

  • 63 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:10 PM

    Kevy…Once again, getting my hopes up :)

  • 64 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:10 PM

    jonnobad providing nothing in the way of reason, argument, conciliation or point. Well done, well done.

  • 65 BelfastMagpie87 // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:11 PM

    Haha pmsl

    You little bulldog..

  • 66 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:11 PM

    Hmmm…Bulldogs don’t really have much of a neck, do they? If you’re not careful Tads you’ll be just like wor spidey.

  • 67 JP...from The Rock // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:11 PM

    Ruddy – What’s gone on m8? It’s a shame you feel that way. Some people can get carried away here at times don’t let it get to you. I take nothing on here personal as no one here really knows me. We had a disagreement once I hope you don’t feel I contributed to your decision, I didn’t attack you so I doubt it.

    I hope to see you back sometime though either with a different name or not cuz I kinda liked reading your posts.

    Anyway take care.

    On topic now I could not see the match but apparently Obertan was running the show. If this lad ups his game and comes through we have another dangerous player on our hands. He can cause defenders problems with his pace and trickery. He just has to be consistent and make the right calls on the pitch. Keep it up you’re getting there.

    Was that the last of our Pre-Season games?

    HWTL

  • 68 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:12 PM

    JP….No, we still have Cardiff I believe.

  • 69 BelfastMagpie87 // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:14 PM

    Ruddy needs to man up like.

    He should come back as buddy & be nice to everyone for a while…

  • 70 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:15 PM

    I saw very little of the game for all the above reasons. Where did Obertan play? not the RW he was struggling in beginning last season?

  • 71 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:16 PM

    Jonobbad yeah but the prob with your arguement is you were twisting his posts to fit yours to show him up fir twisting posts! Nothing to do with him being a regular

    Ameobi you reckon he’ll play a big part this season?

    Ibiza i wish i was like spidey id make ppl sing the buenos airies song every time i went somewhere!

  • 72 JP...from The Rock // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:16 PM

    Ah thanks Ibiza. I think we need one or two more to bring HBA and Cabaye quickly back to fitness. We need their creativity in the team especially against a strong Spurs team in our first game.

  • 73 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:16 PM

    We have another match with the monkey-hingers wedged in.

  • 74 jonobbad // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:17 PM

    Tsunki, i was referring to a previous post that you were not part of. So i did explain it in that post which tads was present.
    And to try and get a dig in, not knowing the facts..idiotic IMHO

  • 75 kevymartins // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:17 PM

    @jonobbad I pointed that out the other day to. Don’t let it bother you. Let them be regulars people like us are bearly on here that much.Does that tell you something? ..we have better things to do with are lifes..The more freinds you have on the blog the less you have in real life reality

  • 76 geordie157 // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:18 PM

    I predicted Obertan for man of the match, can tell it was a poor game when that comes true

  • 77 BelfastMagpie87 // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:18 PM

    I watched the first 10 minutes awful stream.

    Heard a few monkey noises,got conftj

  • 78 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:19 PM

    So much utter crap on the net, and in the papers. So much talk that amounts to absolute zero. Can’t wait for the actual action to happen, newcastle’s gonna gan absolute raggo

  • 79 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:20 PM

    I resent that comment. I have 3 friends on facebook too. Oh wait….

  • 80 mattyNUFC // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:20 PM

    ruddy’s gone? oh surely this can’t be true? can it?

    you’re telling me no more reading through his topsy turvy, flip-flopping ‘commentary’ he spewed out on everyone with no other intention than to start an argument and ten rebuttals later tell someone it wasn’t an argument and that they were an ‘immature gobs!te’?

    ffs this IS a good day

    …and i don’t even post that much, but haste stumbling upon his irrelevant posts. carry on, gentleman, carry on

  • 81 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:21 PM

    TADS, no doubt about it hopefully he’ll pick up his Attacking mid position looked great there last season, let’s hope eh.

    JP.. From the mysterious rock! Erm we have cardiff and Hartlepool I know hartlepool is on the 7th mind.

  • 82 jonobbad // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:22 PM

    Tads.
    No i didn’t and id like an example of that. i gave one when asked. people say to back up your opinions.
    Kevy
    I barely post true, but i read most days on the go. I enjoy most posts but ruddy was getting away with it again.
    And to be fair, although some are tools, i think most on here make a lot of sense.. and then there’s ketsbaia.

  • 83 BelfastMagpie87 // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:22 PM

    My phone is losing the plot.
    Why were they making monkey noises?

  • 84 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:22 PM

    Watch it. Always will ill be there for every heartbeat. Never before in my little life has a season appealed so much

  • 85 JP...from The Rock // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:22 PM

    I can’t wait for us to sign Debuchy or anybody for that matter. We have done well so far in the 3 young ones but we need more. I am trying to remain calm about it all but really I am on here everyday first thing in the morning to see if we signed someone up, sad I know. Debuchy, Anita and Douglas would be great for this transfer window.

    Come on make us happy Ashley get some more quality in time is running out.

  • 86 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:22 PM

    JP…Apparently we do in fact have two. Ask and you shall receive :)

    Cabaye and HBA will be ready to go, don’t you worry.

  • 87 jimmymagpie // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:23 PM

    Anyone know why Cabaye wasn’t given game time today?

  • 88 geordiejamie89 // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:24 PM

    Looking forward to our new signing this week. I’ve been waiting patiently, but I believe that the first major signing will be through the door this week. And I believe it will be Debuchy, despite newspaper speculation.

  • 89 BelfastMagpie87 // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:24 PM

    They had black players in there team like.

  • 90 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:24 PM

    Kevy you were on here telling ppl they werent real fans cos you had been to 10 games and you had a nufc tattoo on your foreskin you then starting banging out raul moat jokes thats why a lot off ppl were jumping on you

  • 91 JP...from The Rock // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:25 PM

    Ameobi- :) thanks mate. So Hartlepool and Cardiff that should be interesting.

  • 92 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:27 PM

    I think cabaye’s just being rested jimmy. No need to play the big lad I’m sure pardew’s already said he’s ready to go somewhere

  • 93 Beardo Ameobi // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:28 PM

    I hold no allegiance to any of you, nor do I seek to procure any, I am an alpha lion, striding alone through the jungle.

    Tell me, do you fear death?

  • 94 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:29 PM

    Christ. Typo suicide

    *meaning, sure I’ve heard pardew say sometime recently that cabaye’s already sharp and that. He’s already up to speed

  • 95 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:29 PM

    Beardo…Not sure about death, but I fear anyone with Ameobi in their name.

  • 96 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:31 PM

    Jimmymagpie dont think cabs travelled maybe they thought he needed a couple more training sessions before some game time? Im sure he will play against cardiff!

    Jonobbad i really cant be bothered to traul through fcuk knows how many articles to look for it, all i will say is if you were twisting them you deserved to be pulled up on it, if i misread them then i apolgise eitherway im not to bothered anymore, i have yet to see you put out an opinion on the toon so why dont you put up some input about todays game (if you managed to see it in the dodgy links) and we’ll see if we can find a middle ground on it or atleast argue about toon based things!

  • 97 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:31 PM

    JP,

    For sure your not on your own, I’m refreshing my page every 10mins hoping for some news on transfers, I remain pretty confident on signing 2-3 first team players.

  • 98 jimmymagpie // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:32 PM

    Pb – thanks mate.

  • 99 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:32 PM

    Jonnobad – I don’t think my post was idiotic imho. Bt I think your observation and consideration of it was. I don’t care about your spat with ruddy, and I have no allegiance to him other than as a fellow nufc blogger. But when you, kevymartins and mattynufc jump on to revel in his leaving or ironically and pathetically marvel at the collective idiocy of blogging by coming on to a blog and er..blogging about it I find that idiotic. Also, going back to my point so this time you can observe it, you have offered nothing except to express gratification that someone who has a point of view that differs from yours, and can robustly defend it, has seen fit to leave.

    That is idiotic. Imho.

  • 100 JP...from The Rock // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:32 PM

    Ibiza – Do you think we need another player like Ben Arfa and Cabaye? I do even though I believe Marveaux will do wonders this season. That signing I would leave at a latter stage of the season though and right now concentrate on our defense that is STILL our weak link in the team after so so so many years. I get nightmares of the days when Bramble was constantly slipping at the back and costing us goals. Our defense has gone great strides in recent times but I still feel it has to be improved. This is our chance to get proper quality at the back in Decuchy, Mbiwa, Douglas etc. Now that we are back in Europe we have that bargaining asset and it bugs me that we take ages to sort out a quality defensive addition like Debuchy could be. Spen the extra dosh get him and Mbiwa in and we’re cover for at least 5 years, simples.

    Then in January we could sign a Gameiro or Sturridge.

    What do you think?

  • 101 jimmymagpie // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:32 PM

    TDS – you too!

  • 102 kevymartins // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:33 PM

    @Tads thats funny because there only was one person that jumped on me and that was you after i picked a fight with ruddy.

    Also i did not come on and say people were not real fans of how many games they had been to I said that to ruddy and ment it only for ruddy.Maby people just don’t know how to mind there own buisness

  • 103 jonobbad // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:35 PM

    Tsunki.
    Again, my argument with ruddy was a couple of days ago. the post i made earlier was to tads.
    Now you’re saying i joined in with the other two and having a go.
    This is the last time i will repeat myself Tsunki …check your facts first.

  • 104 kevymartins // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:35 PM

    @Tads also I started cracking them sh itty jokes when the whole tread was people posting crappy jokes

  • 105 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:35 PM

    Honestly tho. I did see a bloke that could of been paul scharner in a cheap-ish shop this mornin. And another bloke who could of been an agent, he was on the phone like. Weird stuff. And he did have a penny floater he was buying, the first guy I mean. The scharner type geezer

    But nope, nothing exciting now but the battles themselves!!

    Big up the crew

  • 106 jonobbad // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:37 PM

    Tsunki.
    Btw he did not robustly defend it. He admitted he jumped the gun.
    Your whole post is a pile of ..

  • 107 jonobbad // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:38 PM

    Tads
    i knew that would be your response.
    If you’re going to try to insult someone, have your facts straight before you do.
    For me that makes you a **** aswell

  • 108 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:39 PM

    Kevy really? Cos i seem to rememver dannyo dannya and a few orhers telling you to pipe down

  • 109 kevymartins // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:40 PM

    @Tads You might notice you jumped me being sarcastic and sorta cheeky backing up ruddy while everyone else wwymc and the rest of them were’nt jumping me but basically saying make up with ruddy

  • 110 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:41 PM

    Jonobbad no admission of jumping the gun just really cant be arsed to carry on argueing about a lad whos not on here, also as i mentioned ive necer seen you post anything related to the toon

  • 111 cyprus // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:41 PM

    Ruddy,
    my word of support as well. But, just ignore and persist. Look at Indian, he persists without ever using bad language (by the way, where is he?). Just don’t come back as ‘formerly known as’ :)

  • 112 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:43 PM

    jonnobad – I still dont care – what I am talking about is the fact you jumped onto the blog to continue throwing petrol on the fire, no added value. But of course explaining it doesn’t do any good does it? It would be like explaining colour to someone born blind. You are clearly demonstrating something though – you are at least as effective as ruddy at perpetuating an argument, perhaps better seeing as how ruddy isn’t even here and you are still having a go.

  • 113 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:43 PM

    JP….Football talk? Starting to feel a little out of depth here :)

    I completely agree. Defense is where we need strengthening, as has always been the case (well, as far back as I can remember anyway). You may or may not be aware, I am not anti Willo and Simmo, but do understand they are our current weakest links in the starting 11.

    Willo “should” be kept at bay by STaylor. But we all know the issues with that. So, a FB and CB that are able to improve the current squad should be priority.

    Now, not to sound like a fence sitter (God forbid), I also wouldn’t be devastated with no more first team additions.

    Looking at it from a non emotional point of view (difficult I know), where should Newcastle be now? I would say somewhere between 8th – 5th. Is our squad capable of achieving that? We all know that answer.

    We have a clear transfer policy now, it’s not as easy as just throwing some more money at clubs anymore. I do however feel, there is still more to come with the Debuchy transfer and like the rest of you, will be so bloody happy if he signs.

    Slow and steady improvement for me. To say, buy these 3 players and we’ll be in the CL is a bit naive imo. It could result in CL, however, there is nothing to say the new players wouldn’t get injured.

    I have seen enough over the past 2 seasons to allow me to relax and put some faith in the board, so that is what I am doing. It may prove to be foolish and there will always be the argument of “what if they had gotten ….”, but such is life.

    Either way, I’m looking forward to the new season, whether that includes new players or not. I am after all a fan of Newcastle and as long as they play for the badge and give it their all, I will be happy.

    Sorry for my ramblings…been a long hot day and the corinitas are starting to do their thing :)

  • 114 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:44 PM

    Kevy im always sarcastic lad so are alot of ppl however i did think it was big of you to apologise like, fair play and apologies if you think i was ott with ya just found the whole your not a real fan thing a bit weak

  • 115 cyprus // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:44 PM

    On football. Did anybody actually watch that game? Because I voted for Jonas, knowing he must have played well! :) And, did Obertan actually dribble past an opponent? I’d love to see that.

  • 116 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:45 PM

    Thank you for back to topic JP and Ibiza, muchly appreciated.. Enjoy the opinions haha, agree with you mind JP :)

  • 117 kevymartins // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:46 PM

    @Tads and tbh it does’nt even bother me one bit. No one on this blog could wind me up.I would just shake my shoulders.

    I just don’t get why people come on the blog and act like there king of it as if everyone looks up to them or whatever and just provolks arguments.The blog is equally everyone’s

  • 118 Nufc-83 // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:46 PM

    The comments on this blog over the last week or so have been shocking tbh just pure drivel and most of it none football related. Must be the lack of transfers sending everyone crazy.

  • 119 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:46 PM

    Well said that ibiza

    What about scharner tho? We need our king

  • 120 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:47 PM

    Jonobbad when did i insult u? I simply pointed out you still have never posted anything about the toon (on a toon blog) but you keep on going son great contributions from you like

    Jp gamerio would be a good shout mate, good pacey little striker to play just behind ba/cisse

  • 121 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:47 PM

    nobody told me what position obertan played today…..

  • 122 rudy // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:48 PM

    Jesus lads, give it a break. Let’s discuss football here.
    Read about racist chants. Well, was at the match and to be honest, heard nothing of it!
    Not a good match in my opinion, find it hard to name a man of the match

  • 123 cyprus // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:48 PM

    And, all of you missed the biggest event of the day (in history, actually). First ever:

    Ok, it’s a sport nobody’s ever heard of but hey

  • 124 jonobbad // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:48 PM

    Tads, i just don’t appreciate people having a go at me for nothing/made up stuff.
    Every Geordie i have ever met has been a top bloke but some on herejust sent like you unless you have made x amount of posts.
    Btw that’s not a dig at you just general

  • 125 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:48 PM

    Cyprus,

    Shockingly I had a quality stream, my links must be better haha I’ll share next time.
    Obertan was very good like made great runs put in a lot of crosses pretty unlucky not to get an assist put it that way.

  • 126 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:49 PM

    Can I join in too? Kevy and Jono…didn’t both of your “discussions” with Ruddy start due to the fact you both felt the need to comment on his attitude towards his conversations with other posters and not you directly?

    How does that differ to what Tsunki and Tads are doing?

    You don’t like what Ruddy contributes? Is that the upshot of this? I think you’ve made that clear.

    So, why don’t you stop doing what it is you say you dislike about others and actually contribute to the blog???

  • 127 jonobbad // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:49 PM

    * just don’t like you.
    Bloody phone

  • 128 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:49 PM

    Kevy agree with you there its for everyone did you watch the game?

  • 129 geordiejamie89 // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:50 PM

    Anyone going to the Cardiff game this weekend? I’m thinking about going but travelling from Hereford, so was thinking of the possibility of car-share.

  • 130 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:51 PM

    pbNcl – ssshhhhhh!!!! the humour police are still about. We hav had our last warning about using the sch…. word!

    Tads – leave it now mate. We can all see the common denominator here. Just arguing with different people is all. Save your typing fingers.

  • 131 kevymartins // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:51 PM

    @ibiza no i did not ..I did’nt even read the post before me and ruddy ..I started because me and him had been at it before and I was pissed of that day.

  • 132 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:52 PM

    pb…Stop trolling and grow up ;)

    Long live the King!

  • 133 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:52 PM

    Kapow! Haha one of them one’s tonight

    Obertan was quite the man right of midfield, tracking back, nice touches, few shots. Actually seemed like a new player. Can he do it tho consistently. Be class if he can, he’ll be some boy

  • 134 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:53 PM

    Rudy
    How did obertan play my link kept dying! Was he on the wing or did he have a bit of a free roam role today?

  • 135 BelfastMagpie87 // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:53 PM

    There’s about 25 oylmpic channels & I’ve only just found out about It.

    I feel cheated…

  • 136 jonobbad // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:54 PM

    Ibiza
    i read all the comments and picked up on what i thought wasn’t fair. but i checked i wasn’t wrong and backed it up.
    Tsunki just started on me mid post and didn’t bother to check what i was saying us true.
    Completely different and if not please tell me why

  • 137 kevymartins // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:54 PM

    @Tads I got up untill the last 10mins thought it was a good enough game Some players look like there almost ready.Tiote Ba etc..Good enough considering we have none of are french wiz kids

  • 138 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:54 PM

    Kevy…In that case I stand corrected :)

    To be honest, there have been so many arguments on here lately it’s all merged in to one big hell of a mess. Sorry If I am confusing you with someone else.

  • 139 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:56 PM

    Jonobbad fair enough then fella i apologise for any offence caused can we all just get on and talk about the toon this place has been like a playground sometimes lately!

  • 140 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:56 PM

    JP…Just noticed I missed out your very first question…More Benny and Cabaye types? Perhaps I didn’t address this as there can only be one answer :)

  • 141 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:57 PM

    Someone tell me where did OBERRTTANN PLAYYY! Please. Is this why he played so well? has the position been found where he doesnt get booed every 5 minutes?

  • 142 cyprus // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:57 PM

    Ibizatoon,
    Are you like on a permanent holiday?! Good posts though, 99% of the time!
    Ameobi,
    assists is good, but did he actually dribble past a player? Don’t get me wrong, I want him to do well…

  • 143 kevymartins // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:58 PM

    @Tunski I think he player RW most of the game.But sometimes he go’s into a free role.You know how he is.

  • 144 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:58 PM

    Tsunki…When did you get here? :) Didn’t see it, so cannot help. Be good to know though. I thought the position he didn’t get booed for was the bench?

  • 145 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:59 PM

    Kevy good to here i think ba has looked pretty decent for most of pre season considering its ramadan, that bigi lad has looked good with abied hopefully both will be pushing first team this year

  • 146 jonobbad // Aug 4, 2012 at 7:59 PM

    Ibiza
    Tsunki jumped in half way and said i didn’t back stuff up when i did.
    I backed everything up when i commented on ruddy. Just think that’s bs.
    Im gonna leave this subject now because its getting nowhere and too many selective memories.

  • 149 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:02 PM

    Someone posted a Pardew quote from one of the pre-season games where he was shouting at Obertan…Anyone remember what it was? Something like “we’re playing Gabby, not resting”? Made me smile. Anyone recall?

    Cyprus…I can see why it might seem that way, but no. I live and work in Ibiza, just can’t get enough of this blog though ;)

  • 150 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:02 PM

    Kevy did vuckic have a better game than last time? Also how did santon do he looked a bit out of sorts in the last game

  • 151 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:02 PM

    no he got booed on the bench an all poor lad. I got here before and during the game but I swear if I ever have to deal with those iLivid banners again I will throw someone or something into a blender for it. Awful streams so I saw very little and what there was I saw in migraine-vision.

  • 152 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:03 PM

    Cyprus, he played on the right wing, yeah he got past a lot haha more than benny normally does. Shocked? Good game for him

  • 153 cyprus // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:03 PM

    And Ameobi,
    Since u seem to be the only person who actually watched the game, did Ba -Cisse combine well? I think that is AP’s first homework, before it all starts to gel those two, which would translate to 35 goals!

  • 154 Ian Toon // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:04 PM

    Toon down South- No decent link . I was on an I pad . Sounds as if we didn’t miss much . From what I ‘ve read Vuckic had a quiet game. Like Abeid his talent is not in question just waiting for a boost in confidence to display his undoubted talent. Not a big watcher of the pre season friendlies . I followed the comments briefly on- line. Always hope that those like Gosling, Vuckic etc don’t get any setbacks on the fitness front. Personally counting down to 18th and visit to SJP.
    A number of posters seem to suggest that Tiote had trouble passing. Well if we sign Anita he will be able to go shorter and cut out the sideways turn which is reminiscent of the Parker times.

    I wonder who were gonna get linked with this week, its been like a madcap comic. Let’s hope big mike don’t put all his stupid signs up this season. It looked areet with the olimpic set up

  • 157 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:07 PM

    Jono…All I can say on my part is, it’s not selective memory, just poor memory at times. I seem to remember you and I exchanged some posts the other day, but honestly couldn’t tell you what they were about. I would be inclined to say I was right though ;)

    As you say, best move on. At the end of the day, we will all get on with our lives. Would be nice if we could all discuss things without the need to be abusive (that’s a general observation not accusation).

    It’s going to get to the point where we’ll need bloomin’ disclaimers on all of our posts.

  • 158 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:07 PM

    jonobbad @145 for the last freakin time No I didn’t. I said nothing about your argument with ruddy. I just said you came back on to stir the sh*t. That ok? I will leave it too now as it is going nowhere.

  • 159 kevymartins // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:09 PM

    I thought santon played well. Made one vital mistake though…Vuckic had a bad day..Was so quiet touched the ball about 6 times

  • 160 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:10 PM

    Ian toon aye no doubt vuckic is a great talent like you said hopefully its confidence and fingers crossed he gets a decent injury free run
    Anita should be a priority signing cos when tiote is laying off those little give n go passes hes immense and so’s the rest of the team its when he has to go long or look for an option it breaks down abit

  • 161 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:10 PM

    Cyprus,

    Seems like I was the only one? Haha good! Erm cisse and ba I wouldn’t say they played to a top standard but were ok, should be sharp enough for the start of season really.
    Could I see them popping 35goals between them next season? Yeah, could you?

  • 165 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:18 PM

  • 166 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:19 PM

    Intervention time eh ha ha. OK thats it I am officially ok with everyone sorry about disagreeing and stuff.

    But bring back Ruddy.

    And where the hell is Indian Magpie. No joking I am worrying about him now. Like in a hope he is ok in real life sort of worrying.

    jonobbad I have given up. I just said so.

  • 169 JP...from The Rock // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:24 PM

    Ibiza & Ameobi – Thanks for the feedback. I agree with you in about everything you said Ibiza. Maybe apart from the “I’ll be happy even if we don’t sign anyone” part. I know what you mean but I feel we have to make the most of our current situation and improve on our squad by buying that little extra class now that we can attract them with Europe. There is no guarantee that we can achieve this feat by next summer. I understand your point about us being NUFC fans and that but I would be disappointed in missing our chance on building on our success. We have to keep this great momentum going as Europa will be hard on all our players as much as they want it, it will be very demanding if we only keep what we’ve got now.

    I would love it if we grabbed Debuchy, Mbiwa/Douglas and Anita. Though it has surprised me how relaxed we seem to be in the market. I don’t know whether that’s good or bad but it does make me nervous :P

  • 175 JP...from The Rock // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:30 PM

    From what I’ve seen Vuckic is very inconsistent. I missed today’s match but from what I read on here he was pretty quiet out there. He has to buckle up as I can already see Bigi, Abeid and Sammy ahead of him. He has such potential yet seems lost and easily pushed aside in most games. He shows some flashes of brilliance beyond his years at times but not often enough. That and his balance is what he must improve on most.

    We’ll need him an our young guns to be firing on all cylinders this season as it’s a massive one for all of us concerned.

    I can’t wait to head back over there and do some mad shopping after the transfer window. Ben Arfa being my first choice. Hopefully I will be able to buy me a cool Debuchy away strip :)

    Though I am bit superstitious when it comes to buying strips with a name as I tend to jinx it, hopefully that’s just all in my head.

  • 187 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:48 PM

    I agree that Vuckic has showed classes of brilliance during his time on the pitch, Bigirimana, Sammy and Abeid are defo above him as you stated. Would love to see these play in early rounds of Europa and the cup runs could only do them well.

    As for buying the away shirt, I will be waiting untill transfers shut haha lost out with my Nolan one!

  • 188 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 8:49 PM

    JP……I think you’re in danger of being wrong….that is by agreeing with me :)

    Maybe i’m going too far by saying “no first team signings”. I’m just getting a bit tired of the ” we need 3 first team players” lark. I think we had a plan and we’re already ahead of ourselves to some extent. The club have said they want to bring on the youth set-up. Well that wont work if we fill any “suspect” holes with new ready made players. The club have also said that they can’t compete with the big boys financially, but would “like to give them a go”. I take that as meaning, we’re not building a CL side yet, but heck, with the way we’re going, let’s give it a go and try and reach a CL spot. Not that they’re going to buy the needed players to achieve CL status as some fans are calling for.

    Am I coming across negative? I feel I may be :)

    Basically, I don’t think silverware is the clubs priority this season. They’re getting us established at that “next level”, which is not with the likes of Man City, Man United, Chelsea or Arsenal (yet). We are however competing with your Spurs and under normal circumstances, if they weren’t so hell bent on amusing the whole footballing world, Liverpool.

    Once we can keep that momentum up, we’ll push on. Hopefully with our current youngsters as established first team players. I believe that is what the club is trying to achieve. The fact people are wound up as we’re “so close” already just further shows what a good job they’re doing.

    Ramble ramble :)

    Hey guys!

    Firstly i saw the game today and im afraid vuckic wont do it, he isnt bad, he could be an avarage epl player, nothing more.

    Coloccini is class, santon would be better as a wing back, great going forward, demba ba look lost since cisse signed and i dont believe pardew really pleased with his recent performances.

    On the transfer front- i pray to god we wont sign kanoute from maccabi tel aviv, he is a really poor player.

    The best sides the premiership known, man utd in the 90s and arsenal in 2000-2002 didnt change 6 first teamers every year and this was their secret.. We need 3 players, 2 of them for the line-up (debuchy and remy for me) and 1 back up (scharner for me) and we are set.

    Ibiza,

    Great post man, with the club saying we wont compete financially, I do think the team within 4-6years will be a top contender in the Prem and without a doubt CL. I’m happy for all to go without any first team signings aslong as we have some signings! (would be a luxury having Debuchy, Anita, Douglas and any backup Striker) happy days for me :)

  • 200 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:03 PM

    Kevy…Hmmm….Could this be like a cheap hooker. Quality feels good, but leaves you with a rash?

    Tsunki…Not sure mate, think we lack width with that formation like. I do however respect your opinion and your right to have it. What jolly good fun :)

  • 201 spitfire_ // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:04 PM

  • 205 JP...from The Rock // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:07 PM

    Ameobi – Haha Nolan you say, that seems ages ago doesn’t it? Funny how football is. He was a good and honest pro that gave this club great service. To cause a debate who knows maybe he convinced Carroll to sign for Liverfool as he sensed Carroll’s head was not with Newcastle anymore or maybe it was the other way around lol who knows and who cares.

    Vuckic is progressing very slowly and it is a shame as I really thought he would do the goods last year. Sammy has impressed me this pre-season as has Bigi. I seriously think Pardew rates him very highly and will be used plenty this season, a great Tiote backup.

    Ibiza – I see where you’re coming from bout the signings and all. I hope silverware is high on the agenda. My God do we need some! lol I think Pardew is pushing for it harder than it seems to write his name in Geordie folklore forever. It’s clear he loves his job and it fills him and I with pride at the great job he’s doing, long ma it continue.

    It’s so pleasing to know we are being run properly and professionally in every aspect of the club. Brilliant stuff and I can’t wait to see what this season will bring!

    BRING IT ON!!! :D

    Ameobi…Cheers mate. Throw enough sh*t at the wall and something will stick :)

    I hear people say that other teams are strengthening and we wont be able to catch them, as if we’ll be lost in Space or something. Well, only a few seasons ago we were in the championship and Europe was a laughable dream and now we consider ourselves one windows purchases away from the likes of these “untouchable” teams.

    By running things as we are, we’re securing our future and our ability to constantly compete, for me, that can only be a good thing.

  • 208 Tsunki // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:11 PM

  • 210 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:15 PM

    JP…I think it’s the pride Pardew has managing the club that has endeared the cockney puppet so much. I hope he sticks around for a long time…unless he insists on playing dinosaur 4-4-2 ;)

    On Silverware….I’m sure it’s on the agenda, but not a “must happen this season” basis. I agree, it can’t come soon enough. I would feel safe to say, there will be no arguments on the blog the day that happens :)

    Kevy…Was only playing. Cheap but quality is the Mike Ashley way, so the quality between the official and the one’s you posted shouldn’t be too far off.

    Ameobi…I would explain, but it would be against the conditions of my parole.

  • 211 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:15 PM

    Feels so long ago now since its all changed on the pitch, I loved Nolan great to the club untill he twisted Carroll’s head that was totally wrong.

    I’ve still got good feelings on all our youngsters this season, my favourite is fergy he’s just a warrior on the left, its hard to get good left footed wingers these days isnt it? Sick of the boring weekends without football now anyways roll on Tuesday so i can attend the Hartlepool game :D

  • 213 JP...from The Rock // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:17 PM

    Sholadona – The great man said that? Damn what a class act he was, he surely is missed. Imagine if he would still be here with us he would probably make the best Ambassador for this football club and could go to transfer talks with players along with Owl faced Llambias and the gang.

    Sir Bobby would no doubt convince every player we’re after to sign for us.

    Rest in Peace Bobby

  • 214 Conaldo (The Wizard) // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:18 PM

    Ibiza – good point. People need to remember that we have only done it for one season, 3 or 4 signings aren’t going to put us above man utd, Chelsea arsenal who are there every season.
    Our rise to the top will have to be slow and steady, so we don’t financially explode, like man city will when the ffp rules come in.

    Be patient and we will have silverware soon. Just hopefully this season. Awww now I’m not being patient anymore.

    By the way that was not a dig at our current board or anything but could you imagine the great man helping to pull some through, would have been amazing. We could try that with Shearer mind, it could help as he is still well respected in the football world.

  • 221 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:23 PM

    It would be amazing but would I be too cheeky to ask for the F.A cup or Europa Cup before the League Cup (or whatever it’s called now)??

    I just can’t imagine the same reaction to us winning the League Cup compared to another ‘more prestigious’ Cups.

    OK I am dreaming as we still have a very very long way to go but I do wonder at times how the city would celebrate comparing those cups. I would go mental if we managed to win any so that’s my feeling towards that ;)

  • 225 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:28 PM

    JP….Shearer has got to stop being a pundit and get in to management for me. The guy was an absolute hero of mine, but seeing him sat there and contributing nothing to the football world is starting to wind me up a bit.

    I know he had a sh*t time of it as manager for that brief while. But the Alan Shearer we knew and loved would pick himself up and get out there and start banging them in. Come on Alan, sort get involved.

    Wizard…Hear hear!

  • 226 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:28 PM

    JP didnt shearer get bought in to help convince micheal owen to sign *shudder*!

    nino ive said all along (granted with no evidence!) that with what debuchy waacsaying it sounded like likle changing the conditions rather than us penny pinching

  • 227 Beattie25 // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:29 PM

    Hey guys, you vest listen to me, especially you Ibiza, you little rascal.

    Would you not agree that the only way to successfully bleed in a full team of youngsters is to bring into a side that has success?

    If we fail to strengthen, and our bigger players want to leave due to the lack of progress, whats to stop the likes of the top 4 snatching away our youngsters too.

    I think that upgrading 2 positions (CM/FB) could give us the team we need to compete and the adequate cover to feel assured that when injuries hit the team we can cope.

    Nobody on this blog could disagree that Anita and Debuchy could take our starting 11 to amongst the best in the league.

  • 228 Conaldo (The Wizard) // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:31 PM

    Jp.
    I’m sure the league cup would be just fine for most of us.
    The only downside of only winning league cup would be the inbred mackems saying “arr it was only the leage cup, not exactly a real trophy… Now back to my sister…”
    That said people would probably still find fault if we we won the league the league cup FA cup and Europa so…
    Starting to ramble now.

    Can’t remember what i was saying.

    Goodmorrow

  • 229 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:31 PM

    Ibiza,

    Hahaha nice one Kets ;)

  • 230 JP...from The Rock // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:37 PM

    Ibiza- I feel the same way towards Shearer. I have the up most respect for that man but it does bother me in a way to see him there talking about games when I always thought he could make a great manager. I still feel he will one day but he is leaving it late, I bet he thinks he doesn’t need those Stinking Coaching Badges! :)

    toonarmydownsouth – You’re right on that note and now that I think about it he better just try it as manager instead. My God was Owen bad! He was painful to watch, a constant shadow of his former self yet he is still the last one to see it. Sad and disgusting how he robbed us millions, it still peeves me off to this day!

    But, it does warm my heart to know we don’t do those stupid mistakes anymore, maybe Shearer could go as an Ambassador ONLY under Carr’s guidance ;)

  • 231 Conaldo (The Wizard) // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:39 PM

    Beattie-
    To be honest, all we need is a rb to make our starting 11 one of the best in the league-
    Krul – 2nd best keeper in prem last season
    Right back – see who we buy
    Saylor – of injury free, worthy of England squad
    Colo – Pfa team of year
    Santon – only young yet is very talented
    Jonas – gives all, plays everywhere
    Dreamboat – will be best midfielder in prem this season
    Tiote – what do I need to say
    Ben Arfa – see tiote
    Ba – scored 15 goals in half a season
    Cisse – see Ben Arfa

    One player will bring our starting 11 into one of the only premier league starting 11s without a weak link, and should be able to beat anyone.
    Futures bright friends.
    I’ve put my pitchfork back in the cupboard untill the spurs game.

  • 232 magpiebop // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:40 PM

    Ruddy-Haway man you do spout a constant stream of shite, but so does everyone else on here!

  • 233 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:40 PM

    Beattie…If I may, I will answer your post in reverse order.

    Nobody on this blog could disagree that Anita and Debuchy could take our starting 11 to amongst the best in the league. – No, I can’t disagree.

    I think that upgrading 2 positions (CM/FB) could give us the team we need to compete and the adequate cover to feel assured that when injuries hit the team we can cope. – No, I can disagree. CM is the spot I’m least worried about personally. We have Cabaye, Tiote, Anita (ha ha), Guti, Gosling, Abeid, Biggy (I think he can be thrown in at times already) and there are others like Perch, Marv, Raylor etc. FB, yes this can certainly be improved, to take us to “the next level”. For me, I want a FB, CB (and only due to the fact that STaylor hasn’t had a full season in like, forever :) ) and a striker (young to replace Ranger – Not Best or Lovenman).

    If we fail to strengthen, and our bigger players want to leave due to the lack of progress, whats to stop the likes of the top 4 snatching away our youngsters too – Ermmm….This happens at all clubs, regardless. Either they buy in to what we’re aiming for or not. The players can clearly see what we’re up to and all seem on board. Of course, a year or two down the line, if the youth players aren’t stepping up and we wont bring anyone in and we’re not progressing, then yeah, this could be an issue. For me, it’s not right now.

    Would you not agree that the only way to successfully bleed in a full team of youngsters is to bring into a side that has success? Well, that’s near impossible at this point. Shall we release the young players, but an established team, win lots and then start with new young players? We are where we currently are (wooo…that made me dizzy) and have to work within our means. Don’t tell me buying 2-3 first team players will make us an all conquering winning team.

    Hey guys, you vest listen to me, especially you Ibiza, you little rascal. – I have listened and noted your points. I love it when you single me out, makes me feel oh so special ;)

  • 234 JP...from The Rock // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:41 PM

    Nimo…Chill bud. It does seem that both play better when not together. It looks as though Pardew is trying to keep Ba happy, especially after all of the comments etc. I personally hope, that we can rotate them a lot and mix things up. Sometimes play them together, sometimes just Cisse, sometimes just Ba. I would personally rather have either one of Ba and Cisse in each game than both in some games.

    Ibiza – He is a God at Newcastle and is very well respected in the football community. I guess you could say I am a romantic and would love to see Shearer managing our great club someday, BUT and a big one at that, he still needs to get out there and get his managing experience because the only one he has was helping us go down unfortunately. That was not his fault though but he has to start soon if he ever wants to be a ‘successful’ NUFC manager and not just A NUFC manager. Someone should lightly kick Shearer’s arse and wake him up!..what’s Barton’s number?

    He will come back to us One Day…’cue the creepy music’

    Yes Nimo.

    Look at Arsenals youngsters. The thing missing? Success.

  • 256 Beattie25 // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:59 PM

    Agree Nimo!

    Vuckic is 19. Played a few first team games and had been a sub in most of those. He’s coming back from injury and has been played out of position in most of the Pre season.

    Come back in 2 seasons and write him off but not now.

  • 257 JP...from The Rock // Aug 4, 2012 at 9:59 PM

    It’s way too early to say that Vuckic can’t cut it. He does have to move fast and start producing the goods and hit shots on target and stuff like those headers in the box, he does well to get there but misses badly. He’s very young and is improving but he has to prove this season more than ever that he’s up for it, with all the games we’ll need him.

  • 258 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:00 PM

    JP….I’ll do it :) – As I said, major respect for the guy and just hope he gets back in to the game soon.

    Beattie…You know how to rally the troops good sir. I get what you’re saying, but surely that’s what we’ve been doing? Granted, none so far this window, but every window since Andy Carroll left. Keep the faith. Offer for them and they will come (a half quote from Wayne’s World – yeah, I am THAT cool ;) )

He played a huge part in our success last season and Cisse’s arrival has not detracted from that one bit. What I’m saying is that as we’re all so worried about how many games we have next season and how little back up we have with regards to strikers, why play them both? There are enough games to keep both happy and they both “seem” to play better alone…for now.

    As for Arsenal….I agree, they lack something. I think it’s belief in each other. All talented, but they just don’t play for each other the same as out lads seem to.

    Vuckik should be judged if he can stay fit for a season. We need to give him a chance, he does have great potential.

    Ibiza

    My faith in humanity is restored.

    Until the end of this month at least.

  • 264 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:08 PM

    Haha what a keeper! Bumyoung that’s just shan poor lad haha

  • 265 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:09 PM

    Wizard…I never doubted your coolness….you’re a mother f*****g Wizard!

    Beardo….Please. Yes, it’s a football reference, but we’re all mature on here and would never find something like “Lee Bumyoung” funny…oh wait, I just got it *falls off chair*

  • 266 toonarmydownsouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:11 PM

    I think ppls concern with vuckic comes from the fact we have players like abied and from what weve seen so far bigi, maybe amalfitano pushing hard for a place and maybe vuckic is at risk of being overtaken? I think hes a cery talented lad but really needs a good injury free run and needs to bulk up a little bit because for a big lad he seems to struggle a little with the physical side of the game hopefully this can be a big season for him

  • 267 nimo // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:11 PM

    giggs was never missing

  • 268 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:11 PM

    Beattie…Oh, is your time at the end of the month? My last lass generally got “iffy” during the middle of the month. Everyone mark up your diaries.

    Sorry, we were restoring faith in humanity…

  • 269 nimo // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:12 PM

    regards to vuckic i think a loan move to 1 of top championship teams for a season would do him world of good cant see it with the europa cup.. sturridge is a numpty

  • 270 Conaldo (The Wizard) // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:15 PM

    Sturridge… Grr. Oh well. Now we can get back to real football… Ooh controversial.

  • 271 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:15 PM

    Alright lads, it is Saturday night and I am going to find me some fun. Not that it hasn’t been entertaining on here, as always. It’s just that you’re all a bit frigid for what I need tonight.

    Ruddy, as and when you’re back on, do drop us a line. Surely after a night of optimism and rest you can come back ready for some more action. Don’t leave us again :)

  • 272 Beardo Ameobi // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:15 PM

    Oh well, after a great night for British sport, you can always count on the over-hyped, overpaid footballers to fluff their lines :lol:

  • 273 pbNcl // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:18 PM

    Right on beardo. Well described

  • 274 nimo // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:19 PM

    wonder if ya could get how much the gb team earns in a week to the koreans bet it would be laughable

  • 275 nimo // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:20 PM

    someone was telling me sturridge earns twice as much as neymar n i think hes the most overhyped of them all.. n most the hype comes from himself

  • 276 nufcjohn // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:21 PM

    Sturrige is pure shit. Abd hes ment to be valued at 15 million hes not even worth 15p.

  • 277 nufcjohn // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:24 PM

    Anyone heard anything in debuchy or anita yet

  • 278 Beattie25 // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:26 PM

    Debuchy won gold on the parrallel bars and Anita won the 200m butterfly

  • 279 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:27 PM

    Surely Sturridges value will decrease? 10m to 5m? ;)

  • 280 AMEOBI // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:30 PM

    And Douglas won nowt

  • 281 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:31 PM

    Sorry, Just checked before I really go. Beattie @277

    Dear ruddy,

    It appears that you have some supporters on the blog and it is also true that you have and do post on here alot more than I do or ever will so I do not wish to see you refrain from posting your comments as it must be something you enjoy. I may have gone OTT earlier so apologies to you and here’s hoping you post again as your blogger friends are missing you. Never going to agree with everyone on here but at the very least personal abuse in not an acceptable route to take. Once again apologies and hopefully you will take up the posters baton and get back in the race. The choice is yours but there you go. It’s over to you now to get back blogging and engaging with your blogger allies such as Ibiza, TADS etc……

  • 283 Ibizatoon - Back by popular demand // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:39 PM

    Breno…Good man.

    You could engage with us occasionally too…i’m sure we could find something we agree on….what’s your views on religion and politics? Only joking.

    Goodnight x

  • 284 nufcjohn // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:42 PM

    Says on twitter that debuchy has handed in a transfer request. Anyone seen this.

    I never new how loyal he was to lilli. Been there for 20 years

  • 285 davybtoon // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:45 PM

    I was hoping the rumours of a 2.7m bid accepted for Sebastian corchia were true only 21 n fantastic rb defending but even better goin forward

  • 286 BelfastMagpie87 // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:48 PM

    John I wouldnt believe anything you read twitter..

    They should rename that place bullshitter…

  • 287 Beardo Ameobi // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:48 PM

    Debuchy played 70 minutes in a friendly tonight, his coach after the game has said reiterated that they won’t allow him to move and that he ‘must digest this’.

  • 288 davybtoon // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:48 PM

    Anyone who thinks they can make a judgement on a player afte 2/3 first appearances is a muppett vukic is quality there is a reason Chelsea, man utd, Milan n real scouts keep an eye on how he’s doing

  • 289 darrenfletcher88 // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:48 PM

    Nufcjohn, is twitter that thing that puts loads of facts out there,or just made up crap???

  • 290 Beardo Ameobi // Aug 4, 2012 at 10:48 PM

    has reiterated*

  • 291 JackButler // Aug 4, 2012 at 11:09 PM

    You may have already seen this but just in case you haven’t

    ‘Davide Santon has attracted interest from Serie A side Lazio after boss Vladimir Petkov seeks out a versatile defender this summer.
    Reports from Calciomercatonews.com have announced the tactician could be ready to approach Newcastle Utd with an offer for the left-back. However, speculation is gathering around whether Newcastle will be willing to let Santon make a move, after only joining the English club in a £5m deal last summer.
    The 21 year old made his mark at Inter Milan during the 2008/9 campaign by breaking into Jose Mourinho’s first-team.

  • 292 woody92 // Aug 4, 2012 at 11:14 PM

    Yet again, Cornaldo takes the bait and bites :)

  • 293 BelfastMagpie87 // Aug 4, 2012 at 11:19 PM

    Blue peter badge in the post for you Butler,after that great exclusive…

  • 294 JackButler // Aug 4, 2012 at 11:19 PM

  • 295 BelfastMagpie87 // Aug 4, 2012 at 11:24 PM

    I done a drum roll as I wrote that…

  • 296 ToonDownSouth // Aug 4, 2012 at 11:37 PM

    Jack

    We’ve already turned down an enquiry from Roma, so I don’t see our stance changing.

  • 297 Kyo // Aug 4, 2012 at 11:41 PM

    Guess I’ll stop hoping we get Debuchy then. Even though he has been loyal to his club for 8 years they still don’t want to let him go and be happy elsewhere… what kernts.

  • 298 geordiegav1987 // Aug 5, 2012 at 2:30 AM

    obertan ahead in the votes? must have been a shite match.
    but before i get a bashing for takeing the piss good on the lad. hope we sign some players next week or there’s no way we’ll do as good as last season with all those extra potential matches.
