    Play them instead of the first team!

  • 2 Ibizatoon // Apr 23, 2014 at 3:54 PM

    We won something? Does that mean we can all relax now?

    I’ll be the first to start this off, I love you Mikey – Top job!

    Excuse me, my sarcasm alarm has just gone mental. Back in a bit.

  • 3 guvnor // Apr 23, 2014 at 3:57 PM

    They wouldn’t have won if Pardew was coaching them.

  • 4 Lilongwe Geordie // Apr 23, 2014 at 3:59 PM

    Tuff,
    I’d imagine there is a lot of discontent in the dressing room. I was told by a lad who worked as a club educator that departing players had to sign a non disclosure agreement regarding the workings of the club, what exactly it extends to he didn’t know, but it would be nice if this is Shola’s way of giving Ashley the finger on his way out, rather than keeping quiet.

  • 5 guvnor // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:03 PM

    It sounds like North Korea has taken charge of the club.

  • 6 TurkishFan101 // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:04 PM

    I apologise to fans that I may have abused, insulted or sworn at.

    But one thing I will not apologise for is calling fans attending the games Mashley Puppets as that is not abusive, an insult nor a curse.

    Piling up headaches with study and all the negativity to burst at one point and it was just building and building untill today. As Ibiza said, I was looking for an argument more like rant as well which meant I was looking for trouble.

    guvnor

    They wouldnt of made it into the cup final let alone win a cup if Pardew was in charge.

    Probably recoup the sunday pub players to play and bench the u18′s to rest.

  • 7 guvnor // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:07 PM

    Ashley has been watching too many gangster movies, making the players sign the vow of omerta!

  • 8 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:07 PM

    firebug…you are not going to get 52.000 fans on board with that – not even close – just as much as you state you cannot get season ticket holders to give their season tickets!

    …and if so some other will just my ticket.

    Maybe the fans are just not that displeased then (it seems they are not prepared to sacrifice anything personal)

  • 9 Lilongwe Geordie // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:08 PM

    Tuff,
    On the whole shoestring/budget philosophy, I believe that it could work, but won’t under this regime. It has to start off from the right standpoint. It would need to have in place a highly productive academy – La Masia and Jong Ajax – already, with various feeder academies globally to ensure a conveyor belt of talent. It also would require having excellent coaches in all aspects of the club to ensure that the maximum is achieved by each player. Finally, it would also need a solid spine and decent basic squad.

    Sadly, we started off by selling parts of our solid spine, and without a developed academy locally or any sort of linkages globally to academies, add this to an incredibly poor coaching set up and you have a recipe for disaster.

  • 10 guvnor // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:11 PM

    Ashley must be bricking it, having no star players left to sell for big money.

    “you say the club has a cancer, well maybe so, when my dad had cancer we as his family supported him and help him as much as we all could, therefore is our club has a cancer shouldn’t the fans be as supportive as they can be in these times of need?”

    I really want to stop talking about this now, but this should be final comment about this then.

    But you are not curing the cancer, or even getting rid of it.

    You are feeding it to expand upon the stadium to fans so it makes it feel like its normal to be a club without ambition, without the noise and heart set on the entertainers, the act of coming together with mates,kids,lass’s and enjoying the match.

    Also, a human life is regarded much much more than a football match. You can go and see your team any time you want, but once your close family member passes away, that’s it unfortunately…. It is too late and nothing can be done to bring him/her back to life.

    Going to a match is not a life or death situation, but I know fans see it as there religion and life but I do not like them getting taken advantage of ever.

    As a nufc fan, with other nufc fans you are considered as family.

    Would you let the cancer rot the club and its fans to the root and just carry on going and going for the cancer to expand.

    The money is what Mike cares about, its was flows in his blood everyday, maybe his family as well but we should not get personal as any person deserves privacy.

  • 12 Mike's Iron Curtain // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:13 PM

    Michael Richardson is enough ginger for one club, to sign the vermin Colback would be an abomination.

    Get colback signed up!

  • 14 Average_Contents // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:16 PM

    If I was a departing player and they asked me to sign a non disclosure there is no way I’d do it, and no law in the land stating that I had too! Why would someone? Of course some sort of financial incentives knowing fatty

    Here ya go sign this

    What is it?

    Just ya bonus for ya loyal years of service

    Ok, thanks

  • 15 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:17 PM

    For me giving up season tickets have nothing to do with trying to hit NoNuts on the money and neither has it anything to do with whether other will just go instead!

    …it’s about principal and about each individual making a person standpoint and sacrifice.

    Remember what you are giving up is nothing compared to what other have been forced to give up in the last century or so (it’s peanuts compared)

    From where I stand from the outside looking inside we just look spoiled and pampered!

    jesper

    I just cannot see an empty stadium, if it happened then the silence would be deafening I agree. The consequence however could be more detrimental to the club, and even if it only happened for one match it would give the regime in charge free excuses for a year or more.

    In getting a stadium full of people to act in one voice you just need to play a game of pass it on. Tell the person next to you what to say and pass it on.

    If only half of the crowd respond that’s 26000 people shouting with one voice, couple that with a few banners etc and the message becomes clear, if you want change you have to work for it.

    Demonstrations have worked in the past, and given that the voice now would be heard across the world it has a better chance than nothing.

  • 18 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:25 PM

    firebug…personal I agree, but the point should be that you are willing to give up something you hold dear regardless – on principal. That I believe is true sacrifice!

    …because I hurts and because you do it not matter what others are doing. For me that takes guts and I nothing but respect for people you act accordingly.

  • 19 guvnor // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:25 PM

    52000 fans need to see the remainder of the season out and draw their own conclusions about Ashleys mythical 5 year plan.

    You know what’s so funny?

    It has taken Shola this long to speak out

    Just because he knows he is not getting a contract extension to still get paid while doing nothing or even a coach role he is coming out with all this stuff.

    I have no respect for him, cause funny enough if he got offered a new contract extension he would be defending the owner and saying how Mike has plans for the summer to expand and make this club much better.

    Also, this sounds like Pardew has talked to Shola about this as he is scared to speak out in the media even a moment without Wendy interrupting and keeping his job safe.

    He basically spoke for Pardew in my opinion as he has nothing to lose then to retire and go..

    All people care about is money and there own needs nowadays.

    If they could see the needs of the others and help the poor more even then there wouldnt even be poverty.

    Im talking about all the rich, millionaires, billionaires that need to step in and donate together to solve this issue.

    Oh well, we know in a year or 2 no longer will there be middle class but only the rich or the poor.

  • 23 Mister Tuff // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:28 PM

    Lilongwe – ref the Toons model. When I first considered it I liked the idea.
    firstly a good team/squad that could hold their own -supplemented by Mr “El Gourdo” Tubbs promise of a couple of new/decent players per year. Accompanied by a conveyor belt of new talent form the academy. Resulting in those that excel being sold for very good profits for investment back into the kitty.
    Unfortunately if any individual elements are not in place -the scheme fails. Clearly the conveyor belt of youngsters has been forgotten about and/or those assessing the quality of the youngsters have been way off the mark for a least five years.
    The team now cannot hold its own -so that aspect has failed.
    Bearing in mind those first two failings -the idea that 2 new players per year will suffice -will also fail -the neglect means we desperately need more.
    Football is “relative” in respect of the other teams you play against – if they go down the route of big spending on proven players -ie spending all their TV dosh and getting into further debt with a bit more spending -and we do it on the cheap -we’re probably going to get a thrashing more often than not.
    Throw in the big club “fiddling FFP” and not being sanctioned and it all adds up to not a level playing field.

  • 24 Mike's Iron Curtain // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:37 PM

    If you can’t find anything else to do for a few hours on a Saturday, then you must lead a very empty, depressing life. Given the meek, anaemic atmosphere at St James’, I’m probably right for the vast majority. There’s a few hardcore fans that still try to rouse the masses, to no avail; there’s a few hardcore fans that stay away, only to be replaced by casuals that go for a ‘nice day out’ – the middle-class scourge.

  • 25 Mike's Iron Curtain // Apr 23, 2014 at 4:38 PM

    Anyway, I’m away to watch Youtube vids of the thick, pissed up, Geordie plonker/genius that is Gazza.

  • 26 TurkishFan101 // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:03 PM

    Please SHUT UP PARDEW

    Headline: Alan Pardew admitted being surprised by Newcastle United’s recent form as he prepares to return to the touchline against Arsenal following his ban.

    “It is hard to believe really, when we beat Palace (in March) that we would end up like this,”

    “I’m absolutely gutted with events after the last-minute goal.

    “I didn’t think we deserved it. Unfortunately we are going to have to wear it.”

    Going to have to wear it? What is this twat on about

    Also, we did not deserve to win that last minute goal against Crystal Palace with Ben Arfa assisting and Cisse scoring with Ben Arfa getting dropped immediately afterwards.

  • 27 Tsunki // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:19 PM

    Watching that video and seeing Bigirimana languishing in a reserve squad after the heights of. His premiership appearances makes me wonder how a player like that summons up the motivation to keep trying. Having been used as one of Pards patsies and hung out to dry he must know that as long as Pards is at the club, he is as high up the chain as he’s going to be right now. Just shows that good academy talent can be deliberately squandered all in the name of manager/owner politics.

  • 28 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:31 PM

    To remake a club in a single transfer window. That is what is required now but with Ashley? Ridiculous proposition. He’ll take the cheapest route possible such as extending Shola’s contract, andforcing Colo to stay to the end of his contract. One area where I do see Ashley spending is ACM. Our attack is a joke but so is our ability to provide service to the strikers. With Benny completely out of favour and probably leaving and Cabaye already gone this is the one area where Ashley will sanction some spending. Look for a poor start to next season followed by the sacking of Pardew as Ashley panics.

  • 29 tequilamag // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:35 PM

    G2 don`t worry mate, Abeid will be back next year so that is that position sorted. And if he is really going for the cheapest option then surely Shola as player/manager is the way forward.

  • 30 JackButler // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:37 PM

    Good afternoon Lads and lasses :D

  • 31 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:38 PM

    Doh!!! You’re probably right tequila mate. Abeid as our star ACM. Shola up forward scoring a goal per season in the Prem. An aging Colo anchoring the defense. What a powerhouse we’ll be! Huzzah!

  • 32 IITianToon // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:39 PM

    Was great to see Shola speak up the way he has. Now the pressure will truly be cranked up on MA. Let’s see how he responds.

  • 33 jazzyp // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:40 PM

    Guvnor@19
    I think a lot of fans are grudgingly waiting to see what transpires over the coming summer.We all know as fans major surgery is needed to get the squad up to par. And at last a player “strolla” has come out and basically admitted that in house there is the same sentiment from the players as the fans………..Whether Ashley decides to act on this is another matter!!

  • 34 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:40 PM

    Well I’m disgruntled. Nobody except welshie has signed up for A Nosh with NoNuts yet! Harrumph. Personally I will attend with my honey badger. He will be disguised as a Scottish Terrier in order to get past the security guards. It will be an event to remember mates. Sign up now!

  • 38 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:45 PM

    Well said Jack Butler mate @35. Pards to Carver by phone during last game:
    “Johnny? Tell the lads it’s looking very good. Have them sit back further though until the end of each half. Then push everybody forward and try to snatch a goal. Yes, that’s right Johnny. We’ll catch them by surprise mate.”

  • 41 tequilamag // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:49 PM

    G2 although we have made small profits last couple of seasons this season is the one where the club should really have raked it in. IF MA is true to his word as spoken by Llambias then all profits will be invested back in the club.
    If MA had a net spend of 50 Mill this Summer on transfers would you reconsider your opinion or has the damage been done now? Not saying he will just posing the question.

  • 42 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:50 PM

    I think we’re all seeing the same thing jazzyp mate. And now Mike is going to sit his gigantic butt on a chair in the boardroom and impress everyone with his football knowledge. I’m sure they can hardly wait. What’s the point of having a board anyway. I suppose so we can pretend we don’t need a proper DoF. As if Charnley is going to do anything other than exactly what Ashley tells him.

  • 43 JackButler // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:51 PM

    And don’t forget that if Pardew has been on the touch line against Swansea he would have stopped them from scoring the winner……………(Jedi mind trick’s have not yet been banned by either UEFA or FIFA)

  • 44 JackButler // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:52 PM

    Seeings as Ashley has little option but to invest this summer do any of you think he will finally pull the plug on Pardew and start afresh with a better manager???

  • 45 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:54 PM

    Ashley spend 50M in one transfer window tequla mate? Not a chance. He has always said the club will pay its own way going forward. He can interpret that any way he wants since we owe him a huge sum. I can see him spending on a decent ACM to replace Cabaye (using the Cabaye money of course). Would I reconsider my opinion? No. It’s based on 7 long years of suffering that can’t be forgotten. Five years of horrible football in the Prem, one decent year under Hughton in the Championship and one miracle finish in 5th thanks to the incredible performances of 2 or 3 players. Ashley must go.

  • 46 tequilamag // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:55 PM

    JB,, I made this point the other night that if you have to rebuild a squad it`s possibly better to get a new manager to oversee it rather than parachute a new manager in 12 games into the season to manage a squad he has had no input on.

  • 47 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:57 PM

    Yes we’re in good hands with Pardew because he can stop opposition goals any time he wants Jack Butler mate. Amazing ability that. When does he plan to start doing it? Surely the Arsenal match is the place to start. Or maybe start thinking about how you’ve destroyed the confidence of most of the players in the squad Alan.

  • 48 tequilamag // Apr 23, 2014 at 5:57 PM

    G2 I based the question on the blogs collective sugar rush in the Jan window when they bought 5 players. MA was getting loads of praise to his hands on approach to transfers.

  • 52 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:00 PM

    That was an interesting window tequila mate. But once the panic of possible relegation was over Mike sat back and did nothing again. In fact he did worse than nothing. He hired Joe the Jackass Kinnear as DoF. That move set us back several years and made us a laughingstock again to boot. Well done NoNuts you wanker!

  • 55 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:03 PM

    I must have said a bad word as I’m being censored again. I was saying (but this time more politely) that the one transfer window where we made progress so that we escaped relegation (the only reason Ashley sanctioned it) was followed by a repeat of previous disastrous windows in that we did nothing the following summer. In fact Ashley actually did worse than nothing. He hired Kinnear as DoF. The lack of common sense shown by our owner is shocking. He is his own worst enemy. Pathetic waste of space he is.

  • 58 tequilamag // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:05 PM

    JB, I have been a defender of Pardew. But I think 3 and a half years is enough time to show some progress. One good season one bad. One half a good season one bad and we are not really any further forward than when he took over.
    He has been consistently shafted from above though so I reckon some of the abuse hurled his way his aimed in the wrong direction.

  • 59 Rotonda heights // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:06 PM

    Ashley could sack Pardew or offer him an improved contract the same as he could turn us into world beater or asset strip us and palm us off!!!

    No one knows how this an thinks, i know that I’ve stopped trying to figure out what the hell he’s going to do but the certainty is that unless there are major changes at the club and soon, then we will be in for a relegation battle next season

  • 61 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:07 PM

    I am a strong supporter of all old farts everywhere jesper mate so Arcade Fire are not old enough yet. If they get some greybeards in there I might change me mind. I support Canadian old fart bands at every opportunity (except when it comes to overpaying to see them live). I consider myself to be an ethno Geordie Canadian but with all British roots.

    tequilamag

    agreed mate, Pardew has not been helped from those above him but at the same time he’s been his own worst enemy and bring a lot upon himself.

    for me if Ashley is going to run the club on the least amount of investment possible then the least he has to do is employ the best coach to work with the players we target.

    We need a manager who can improve players but I dont see that in Pardew as it’s never been a part of who he is

  • 66 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:11 PM

  • 69 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:13 PM

    I suspect you might be right about Abeid and Bigi Rotonda mate. The trouble is we have turned into a horror show as a team. It could be a nightmare against Arsenal and Liverpool and I could see us losing to Cardiff as well as we did in the cup. If we finish with 8 losses in a row will Ashley finally do something about Pardew? I wouldn’t bet on it.

    thats why I think he could kick Pardew into touch as i don’t think he’d trust him with a substantial budget or the players that someone else brings in and at a time when every single club in the league will have big money to spend we either get it right or simply fall into the abyss

  • 72 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:16 PM

    I wouldn’t go that far Rake mate. I would say we need a new owner. Then take it from there. The new owner must have considerable money and be willing to invest on improving the club! That means hiring properly, showing proper respect for the city and the supporters, and constantly trying to compete for top 6. Ashley out!!!!!!!

  • 73 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:17 PM

    JB…I guess it remains to be seen what he will do?

    …but to be honest I don’t think we will move an inch until he feels a need – or you could say until he is motivated!

    With 52.000 loyal supporters turning up every two weeks and people apparently standing in line to use unused tickets I don’t think he is motivated ;)

    He’s only ever motivated by money and reports suggest that season ticket sales are down by 14,000 and we all know that Ashley will offer anyone up as a sacrificial lamb to save his own skin

    NUFC is all part of SD in Mashleys eyes, great advertising and boosting sales ot tat.
    not forgetting those sales of our best players and all that tv money. Grrrrtttt!

    As long as we don’t expect to much we’ll be just fine.

  • 80 JackButler // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:27 PM

    season tickets are still valid for the remainder of this season and thats why the seats are taken up but next season is a different matter as if I remember correctly the deadline to end direct debits was back in the beginning of March.

    Someone ran a story when Charnly took over that his first job was to try to get the fans back on board

  • 81 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:28 PM

    Mike has decided to go ahead with A Nosh with NoNuts despite the fact that only welshie and I are signed up to attend (hint, hint). Now possibly you don’t realize the entertainment planned for us by Mike. We’ll be starting off with a medley of songs from years gone by the that famous crooner Joe Kinnear. Mike will be backup on air guitar. Then Alan is going to give a brief inspirational speech about the magnificent performances of the club this season followed by a head butting demonstration. Dekka will follow by streaking across the lawn. And finally in the evening the fireworks display. Black and white fireworks only of course. The white ones may look like stars but they’re not.

  • 82 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:31 PM

    JB…would be great if is were so, but like this season – even if someone is not using his season ticket – someone else will use it. Next season 14.000 who could get tickets will buy tickey, probably at a lower price, and 52.000 will still attend SJP :)

    …the supporters don’t want to give up something personal (well some do and credit to them – it takes guts)

    Pardew dodges a question on his future while talking to Mick Lowes

    Interview starts at 54 mim 45 seconds

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01wvmbp

  • 87 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:35 PM

    Is it finally time for me to don my nipple armour and do battle with the hated NoNuts? Surely we can gather support and stay away from one home game? If the ground is empty against Cardiff even Mike might begin to wake up and take notice. Is it not worth that much to show our disgust with his behavior as owner?

  • 88 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:35 PM

    When ever I hear that name I think about Mike Lowrey from Bad Boys :D lol

    …Mike Lowrey!

  • 89 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:36 PM

    The trophy cabinet was removed as a cost cutting measure lesh mate. Benny hides his meat pies in there now.

  • 90 JackButler // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:36 PM

    jesper

    Yes but those 14,000 tickets would have to be sold at a reduced price thus lowering the income overall so one way or another it will hit the club hard…………………hard enough to spur them into action.

    Listen to that interview I just posted and Pardew side steps a question on his future, to me he knows he’s on borrowed time here

  • 91 Ibizatoon // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:39 PM

    Lesh…Let’s not go over the top. A trophy shelf will suffice for now. However, plans are in place to get a cabinet, Mike is here for the long haul and success must surely be around the corner!

    Jesper…Do you listen to any Jack Johnson? I’m thinking you could have a play with “Sitting, Waiting, Wishing”

  • 92 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:39 PM

  • 97 TurkishFan101 // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:45 PM

    JackButler

    Thanks for the exact timing of the interview with Pardew.

    What’s astounding is he still says “I am the best candidate for this club and have proven in the past 3 years”.

    Sounds like he really is under he’s last moments here.

    When he was asked if the owner spoken to him about his future he said quiet angrily it seemed “I don’t think its the time to talk about my future”

    Further when asked if the results dictates he’s future will affect if he will be the manager he said “eergh In all trades yeah”

    What does he mean by “all trades”?

    interesting interview

  • 98 Ibizatoon // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:45 PM

    I don’t know if I’m simply trying to convince myself but after listening to that I do think he’s gone very soon as if he was safe he’d have said so in the interview

  • 101 TurkishFan101 // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:47 PM

    Furthermore, he was asked if the results dictates he’s future on the club as manager “eergh In all trades yeah”?**

  • 102 TurkishFan101 // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:47 PM

    I am convinced as well, this was long due.

  • 103 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:48 PM

    jazzyp surely the lads at T4C and the other supporters networks are thinking about this? It’s an ideal opportunity. One game to shock the owner. Possibly force him to rethink his own lunacy. At least to show we’re not spineless sheep (that’s a strange image but I’ll get back to that) willing to put up with any drivel this idiot serves up.

    He couldn’t get away with saying his job is 100% safe after the way this half season has gone – even he’s not that stupid.

    Mind, I haven’t actually listened to the interview yet? Was he crying? :)

  • 106 toon kk // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:50 PM

    Have a listen to it mate as he honestly sounds like a man that knows he gone

  • 110 TurkishFan101 // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:52 PM

    JackButler

    That guy straight after the interview with Pardew, I think Andrew called in is it?

    He says he is one of the “PDL” that wants him to stay.

    Also says “People say Hatem Ben Arfa is Pardewed but I believe he is too unfit”.

    But is Pardew not responsible for Hatem Ben Arfa’s training and health conditions?

    It seems to me the dressing room is widely seperated

    On one side its Mbiwa, Marveaux, Colloccini, Ben Arfa, Gouffran, Sissoko, Remy and Haidara.

    On the other it is the likes of Gosling, Shola, Dummet, Williamson, Steven Taylor, Robbie Elliot.

    It seems totally separated in the dressing room.

    Alan Pardew clearly has problems with Hatem and now the rest of the french players.

  • 111 Ibizatoon // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:52 PM

    Graeme…That is most generous of you, but as I said, a whole cabinet is not needed at this time, in fact, I think we can probably agree that it’d bring too much pressure on the whole club.

    Now, if you have any spare shelves that would be most kind and would save then club having to dip in to this summers transfer kitty.

    TurkishFan101

    The stories of unrest in the dressing room go back to last season with Pardew and Carr also said to be fighting it out with each other thats why Kinnear was supposedly brought in.

    To me the players look disinterested and lost on match days and have done for some time so I think he has lost the dressing room

  • 115 jazzyp // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:55 PM

  • 116 Ibizatoon // Apr 23, 2014 at 6:57 PM

    I’ll have a listen later, I’m still under the disguise of “working” at the minute – No questions asked yet, so it must be working :)

    G2…Where did you get that from matey? I’m talking to Jesper on here, it’s right up there in black and white. I’m starting to worry about you, do you think you’ve perhaps taken on a bit too much this past year?

    What do you guys think Llambias meant by this before leaving last summer.

    “Derek, there is no warmth at the club. The fans feel no connection at all with the owner. They want to know what is going on in there.

    Mick Quinn:“There is no communication. Not one fan can see how the club is moving forward.”

    Derek, Llambias:“Come up to St James’ Park, Mick, and we’ll have lunch. I will talk you through everything we are about to do. We are going to do some great things.”

    I genuinely think we had a good manager to replace Pardew but there must of been a last minute change as Joe Kinnear was introduced.

    Maybe Mike Ashley wanted to delay till this summer??

    What do you guys think?

  • 121 Ibizatoon // Apr 23, 2014 at 7:03 PM

    Have you seen how many goals they have scored in BL?

    According to O Jogo in Portugal, #NUFC representatives met with the agent of Benfica midfielder Filip Djuricic in London last week.

    They also claim that #NUFC had an offer of 12m euros for the 22-year-old rejected by Benfica in January.

    I’m on about tonight mate, the had 90% of the ball and didn’t force a single save from the Madrid keeper

    True mate true, very reliant at the moment on Mandzukic who is playing strangely wide!
    Still great team mind

    they are a great side mate, but not killer instinct, they are trying to walk the ball in the net

  • 171 toonarmydownsouth // Apr 23, 2014 at 8:25 PM

    Filip Djuricic eh, decent player at SC Heerenveen but barely kicked a ball at Benfica, not sure he’s worth over €12 mil, sounds like there trying to recoup a fair old wedge

    You could see Suarez being unstoppable in a Bayern shirt

  • 173 toonarmydownsouth // Apr 23, 2014 at 8:26 PM

    Ahh Di Maria should of been 2-0

  • 174 toonarmydownsouth // Apr 23, 2014 at 8:28 PM

    lol Pepe’s the biggest tart on the planet, must be that stupid haircut!

    someone like Suarez would be frightening for them.

    Why is it every time I watch Madrid i want some one to kick Pepe twenty foot in the air………………….Despise that player soooooooo much

  • 176 GeordieTwo // Apr 23, 2014 at 8:29 PM

    Great to watch such good footy. I have to be off for a bit mates.

    Pepe is one of those players you never get tired of seeing him get kicked
    The blokes a complete tool and borders on embarrassing especially during El Classico

  • 178 toonarmydownsouth // Apr 23, 2014 at 8:35 PM

    In all honesty if Real Madrid or Bayern got Suarez the CL would be a non contest!

    Thanks for a splendid blog poetry night! I’ll let you guys talk football and step back and watch House of Cards!

    Watching this game is refreshing after last nights defensive lock out from Chelsea, Jose may be a great coach but that side is so bloody boring to watch.

    Could you see Suarez leaving Liverpool in the summer?

  • 181 toonarmydownsouth // Apr 23, 2014 at 8:42 PM

    JB
    Last nights game was possibly the worst CL Semi final in history!

    No can’t see Suarez leaving tbh mate, just don’t think Liverpool would let him!
    But while were at a bit of fantasy football can you imagine this match, based solely on how both sides are playing tonight, if RM had Suarez and Bayern had Ibrahimovic?
    Best game of football ever?

  • 182 JackButler // Apr 23, 2014 at 8:44 PM

    It would be a hell of a game as long as Ibrahimovic was in the mood :D

    I can’t believe Torres started over Ba yesterday.

  • 184 toonarmydownsouth // Apr 23, 2014 at 8:56 PM

    JB
    This would defo be an Ibra night mate!

    HD
    Don’t think Ba has been to kind about Jose lately! Plus, Atletico, he prob thought Torres would be up for it, tbf given the tactics he used in not sure why he bothered with a CF

  • 185 lesh // Apr 23, 2014 at 9:16 PM

    JackButler..

    The reported €12m offer was probably blurted out by a very ‘tired’ Kinnear having propped a bar up all day!
