    Jail’s too good for Ashley.

    Jail,
    Thanks for reminding me:
    “Mike, thanks for finally super discounting the NUFC phosphorous yellow away shirt of last year. I got it as a swap for a shirt I got for xmas. (There was another team’s label in front of that one: Piere Gardin, or something, must be a French outfit).”

    a few points
    1. Colocinni is the worst of our four central defenders

    2. Every time our defence has been tested with him in it we have struggled. Stoke were on their way towards scoring more goals before Whelan got himself sent off.

    3. Unless we play three in midfield to shield the coloshitty-led defence, and tiote as one of those three we will concede no fewer than 3 goals against arsenal

    4. Had Pardumb left a working defence intact, playing 4-4-2 like we did v chelsea would have been an option against a rampant arsenal. With the piece of shit colocinni in defence 4-3-3 is the only alternative.

    5. This is a great club with one of the best assemblies of talent in England. but our captain Coloshitty is a liability. If we can somehow get rid of this piece of shit we could challenge for the title. Thats how good we are

    I still remember the game against Arsenal a few seasons back where we came back from being down 4-1 :)

    …what a game and what a goal by Tiote!

    toonbrother,
    I’m starting to suspect you don’t like Colo as a player.

  • 6 Dannyo // Dec 28, 2013 at 9:06 AM

    @toonbrother
    Are you really that daft? Coloccini is the worst?
    And “Coloshitty, Pardumb”, are you five?!

    I hope this is some sort of sarcasm thing, because if it isn’t, my word, you might actually be the most dense person I’ve seen on here.

    Worse than Mr. “Boycott, boycott”.

    Jesper,
    that was 0-4 down.
    You want to go further back?

    Jail,

    Remy had a release clause if QPR got relegated, confirmed by Redknapp, but the problem is his rape case isn’t being heard until Feb. Big gamble to buy him in Jan.

    Also, the rumour is he can be bought for £7M.

    Ash has done alreet .. His regin on the Toon should be welcomed .. And the Army we have marching out against the Gurners will be Battle of the Season soo far!!

    I would play the same team tomorrow who took the three points at Old Trafford? With maybe, depending on the scoreline, bringing Papiss and Ben Arfa on for the last twenty minutes?

    The game itself, though, is a difficult game to predict?

    A win will make our season, a draw will be okay and not the end of the world for us? A loss is a likely result, but will not be a disaster either !

    A lot depends on the Ref!

    There are some very fickle fans on here. Form is temporary class is permanent remember. Colo is still our best defender and Willo still our worst but Willo is in a rich vein of form. Say lot has been forgotten but him and Colo were solid when both fit lest we forget although it is a great bonus to have Mapou now. Same goes for Cisse – we now he is not as great at approach play as others and Demba, but when he rediscovers form he will be a great poacher again. We want to build up 4 good strikers like the best Premiership teams. It’s no good getting rid of him and hoping to sign Remy and three more….he should be one and we’ll find others to complement…..likewise with people jumping on Tiotes back earlier in the season – he is a DM who can play a bit as well and is invaluable. The reason we are better than average is Cabaye, Tiote and Krul. If we lose Cabaye we will need another class creative mid or we will go backwards. It’s a shame we didn’t go for Thauvin when he was cheap.
