It will be a surprise to us if the Wonga sign on the home strip is not in blue, but we’ve been wrong before. 😀

    Lets hope the players wear them with pride.

  • 2 Macas // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:01 PM

    John Tudor – From previous post, you said the talk was only about execs and not Kinnear, when you yourself had been slagging off Kinnear for not being at the Motherwell game. That’s what I was on about

  • 3 Novocastrian66 // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:03 PM

    I have to say the home top looks good. Wonga or not.

  • 4 Thump // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:04 PM

    Yes. Yes they are.

    I’m glad we sorted that out.

  • 5 G // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:05 PM

    The yellow one actually doesn’t look bad on that pic. I still wont buy one with that sponsor.

  • 6 toonarmydownsouth // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:05 PM

    In all fairness kanoute only wore a blank shirt for a small while if I remember, before the company and Sevilla reminded him of contractual obligations
    He eventually agreed to wear the sponsor but only on matchday not on his training gear or do any public events which advertised them

  • 7 John Tudor // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:05 PM

    that was not all about it.
    someone posted no execs were there ,i said if kinnear had been there he would of seen a cheap player with an eye for goal and like i said i was willing to be corrected on his remit .but i will stand by what i said kinnear should not be at the club.

  • 8 ~Joke-innear~ // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:06 PM

    Thank god it ain’t banana yellow… the last yellow kit we had was a nightmare… never want to see that kit again.

  • 9 Ruddy Marveaux-lous // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:08 PM

    Well we should know soon enough what our home kit will be? We’ve already seen the away kit.

  • 10 John Tudor // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:09 PM

    read from 32 onwards

  • 11 plana // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:09 PM

    The only things those strips need are Remy, Sinclair, Sackho, and a few other new recruits to show them off to their true potential.

  • 12 John Tudor // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:11 PM

    enough said no more comments i was trying to have a discussion on here not to have a row
    ed has been informed and i watching my posts and my replies tyvm

  • 13 John Tudor // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:11 PM

    he is

  • 14 Macas // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:11 PM

    John Tudor – You were having a go at Kinnear about the Motherwell game with Charlie, but never mind

  • 15 Macas // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:12 PM

    John Tudor – Ed has been informed about what exactly?

  • 16 John Tudor // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:12 PM

    yes thats correct and where did i deny that

  • 17 NUFC_LEAZES END // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:14 PM

    People need to remember us fans wear the top because of the crest and what football team it represents.
    Not because of who we are sponsored buy or who makes the top

  • 18 richyg01 // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:15 PM

    all look good.

    Apparently, that image is from an official Puma Merchandise catalogue, so there is a good chance its right.

    How come we have a blue stripe in the black stripes now?

  • 19 DevonToon // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:15 PM

    Ruddy – nah navas is 20x the player theo is, i jusg didnt want to be called a paceist… I could have mentioned another shit pace whore, but then who would pick zidane + pirlo v walcott + giovinco for eg.

  • 20 NUFC_LEAZES END // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:15 PM

    Same goes with the players.
    They should want to wear the tops because of the same reasons I stated above

  • 21 richyg01 // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:16 PM


    Same should be said for the players mate

  • 22 John Tudor // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:16 PM

    no i was pointing out if he had been there he would have spotted talent i was unaware he liked watching young boys

  • 23 Ben3arfa // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:16 PM

    who cares – we’re signing Darren Bent!


  • 24 Macas // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:16 PM

    John Tudor – You said the criticism about the Motherwell game was only about the execs and not Kinnear, or have you forgotten saying that as well?

  • 25 Tinman // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:16 PM

    If Dummet really is up to the task of pushing Santon and Haidara then we should just get rid of Santon IMO. I cant stand the fact a LB is right footed. Dummet and Hairdryer will be much more effective at getting to the byline and getting those crosses in. It will add much needed balance to the side.
    Yeah both of them are inexperienced in the PL, but I bet both of them make less defensive errors than young Davide

  • 26 Transfer Sage // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:17 PM

    Not bad kits, the away an third kit look a bit ‘off the shelf’ and not custom designed but home one is ok.

    Won’t buy them with wonga on though

  • 27 Macas // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:18 PM

    John Tudor – No point in discussing anything with you as you just reinvent the truth with every statement

  • 28 Offkey // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:19 PM

    NUFC_LEAZES END // Jun 9, 2013 at 1:11 AM


    Muslims only abide by their law when it suits them the c**ts

    These are the people that share your opinion Ruddy…….well done

  • 29 Transfer Sage // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:19 PM

    Leazers end

    I know we wear it for the badge but I personally won’t wear it while our great tradition of north east football and hard work on the area is exploited by that low life company.

  • 30 DevonToon // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:20 PM

    Ruddy – these pictures are from the puma catalogue, these are our kits. I have to say i really like the home kit! I will wear it with pride cos its our famous black n white!

  • 31 John Tudor // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:21 PM

    yeah whatever, i know what i said, you clearly have a problem with it lets leave it at that. i can just add you to the list

  • 32 richyg01 // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:22 PM

    It should not matter who the sponsor is on the shirt.

    wear it with pride
    wear it for the badge
    wear it for the history
    wear it for the team

  • 33 John Tudor // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:23 PM

    and you just twist everything to suit yourself if i disagree with your views

  • 34 NUFC_LEAZES END // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:25 PM

    Us fans have got a choice of wearing our old toon tops still, but the players have to put their religions and personal life aside whilst they are playing for this football club.
    I don’t get how cisse can’t do that as our other Muslim players have.
    Someone said it yesterday, cisse could have possibly been tapped up by another club like Dortmund and possibly trying to force a move out of the club by using his religion as a gateway

  • 35 Transfer Sage // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:25 PM


    Why shouldn’t the sponsor matter? It’s a horrib company that exploits the misfortunes of the poor or those who don’t understand…as well as offering a service for those who need it also.

    But I won’t wear something which has such values, it drags the standard of the club down.

    If the sponsor doesn’t matter would you wear it with a gun manufacturer as sponsor? A terrorist group? Got to draw the line somewhere and I draw it here

  • 36 Macas // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:26 PM

    John Tudor – I made one simple comment about a discussion you had 5 minutes earlier, I haven’t insulted you, but yet you still start crying like a little girl saying I’ve been reported to Ed? Get a grip mate

  • 37 Transfer Sage // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:27 PM


    Religion, whilst it should be absolute and not deviate, does however. And as a result each person and group within a religion has certain tolerance levels. Maybe cisse is more strict and traditional than other players.

    This day and age if a player wants a move he complains, sticks in a transfer request and gets it….don’t need an excuse

  • 38 DevonToon // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:29 PM

    Tinman… One name… Mr P Lahm, played an awful lot of his career at LB, immense player. I love having santon at Lb, keeps the opposition FB guessing, he can cut in or get to the byline, hes got a good left peg like. I think santon will one the best wingbacks in a few years

  • 39 richyg01 // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:31 PM


    You say they exploit the misfortunes.

    At the end of the day, people have a choice, use them or don’t. There is noone forcing people to use them, and people also know the costs of what they are doing BEFORE they take out the loan, it is not as if they add all these unknown charges on at the end.

    It is all in black and white.

    Exploitation is the kids who stitch the shirts together in some far off country working 18 hours a day for 50p, thats real exploitation right there, but hey, if we were sponsored by Bentley, Samsung, Mclaren you wouldn’t give that a second thought would you!?

  • 40 Wigham33 // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:32 PM

    Can we just sign a striker please before we lose our only one. Sorry Shola You don’t count.

  • 41 John Tudor // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:33 PM

    a comment that you read something into that was not there
    it is you that needs to get a grip and what is your problem .is senility creeping in on your side and no you have not been reported you’re not worth it

  • 42 Offkey // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:34 PM

    @39 – your logic is rubbish in all honesty, is it the kids fault for working in those sweat shops – no, they do because they have to………same thing as the people using wonga.

  • 43 nufc82 // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:34 PM

    87Novocastrian66, why doesn’t it bother you who sponsors the club? Do you not care about the club’s image and how it’s perceived? A lot of other sporting clubs have turned down the opportunity to be sponsored by Wonga and similar companies. Also I can’t believe how many fans are saying that they are not bothered if Cisse goes. Who do we have left if he goes? Imagine if this happened last summer after Cisse had a blistering six months. I can guarantee that 99% of people on here would have been backing him. A lot of football fans are so fickle, they only support players that are in form. Yet they moan if a player doesn’t show the club a 100% loyalty.

  • 44 Tinman // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:35 PM

    Devon, but then how many great left footed LB should I name?
    Plenty of left footed LB can use their right foot also, making it difficult for the opposition to guess which way they are going… Marcelo is the first name that comes to mind at the minute.
    Of course there are exceptions to every rule. Lahm being one. Santon could well go on to be a great player, I am not disputing that.
    I just have a problem witht he fact that Santon doesnt go down the line enough. I would much prefer my LB, and LW for that matter, to go down the line 75% of the time and inside 25%. Rather than the other way round.

  • 45 Transfer Sage // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:35 PM


    too simple to say they have a choice

    if its either get a wonag loan or go without food/rent for the month what do you do? it can easily spiral out of control for those on very low incomes, especially if an unexpected bill/cost occurs

    it’s a serious issue, hence why it is debated in government.

    I like to make sure all companies are fair if i am using them or their products….can’t be perfect, obviously make some i miss but this is a totally non-essential product and its easy to boycott

  • 46 HullMag6 // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:37 PM

    Looks like im in the same camp as Richy and Leazes.

    We all have our preferences. If Wonga was so wrong and corrupt then the FSA would be on its case all the time.

    90% of the sob stories you hear are of those that have fallen into denial or the Liverpool defense ‘its not my fault’ people have forgotten about personal responsibility.

  • 47 John Tudor // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:38 PM

    and i was in agreement with charlie in the gallowgate i see nothing being directed at him one sided bullying to the enth degree

  • 48 richyg01 // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:40 PM


    At the end of the day, a payday loan is like having a credit card.

    Use it responsibly and pay it back and you are fine. Get carried away, miss a payment, over borrow/spend, then you only have YOURSELF to blame – consequences are outlined in the terms and conditions.

  • 49 giimps // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:41 PM

    I think if he wanted out , he wouldnt be offering to wear the shirt without the logo on or with a charity logo.
    Just my opinion though so please dont tell me im wrong or he should do it this way or that….its my opinion no-one elses.
    HWTL…..and hurry up with the signings cos times a ticking…..anyone else not got their season ticket cards yet?

  • 50 Macas // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:49 PM

    John Tudor – So in other words you didn’t report me because there was nothing to report me for. So why say that you had? And I didn’t say anything to Charlie because it was you who replied to me, or have you forgotten that as well? And all this talk about bullying, I mean come on, are you serious??? All I did was mention your conversation with Charlie, as the pair of you were slagging off Kinnear for not being at Motherwell, which you denied you had done.

  • 51 DevonToon // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:57 PM

    Sage – cant really compare wonga to Al Qaeda. Wonga charge higher rates because they deal in high risk loans. Banks are just as bad, if not worse. I dont remember many fans moaning at newkie brown being our sponsor.. alcoholism’s pretty aweful like. I should quit my job, cos im a bookie. I should stop drinking beers cos im funding companies who ruin lives, i should stop playing fifa cos fifa is corrupt. I shouldnt wear my jeans, t shirts etc cos a chinese child made them etc etc

  • 52 magpiedom // Jul 18, 2013 at 1:59 PM


    So I have no money and kids and am starving.
    Solution? Take out a loan I can’t afford and am told if I fail to pay it back, I could lose my home and other possessions.
    Brilliant logic.

    I know it’s tough but if people can’t understand that these short term loans are not the answer, then what hope do they have regardless of their financial situation.

    P.s. I know what it’s like to have nothing and support others. I also know the answer wasn’t to get a short term loan with very high interest, particularly when this is made very clear to me in the terms and conditions of the contract.

  • 53 HullMag6 // Jul 18, 2013 at 3:20 PM

    Offering the charity shirt option is trying to look the good guy despite wanting out.

    To some cutting down on fags/booze will free up cash for food and cancel that next tattoo appointment that’ll help too.

    Slating a stereotype I know – I’m bored,

    Everything is more expensive the key issue iis tackling disproportionate high salaries – bankers execs and footballers.

  • 54 sexyirishtoon // Jul 18, 2013 at 11:55 PM

    That new home kit is f*****g lovely, pity about wonga. I’d rather it said even
