Embarrassment – Kick Off Delayed An Hour – Big Screen Unsteady


What an embarrassment – the big screen at the Leazes End of the ground became unsteady before the game,  and the opening of the turnstiles was delayed.

Newcastle

It looks like the big screen may have to be taken down for safety reasons, and the latest we hear is the game will not kick off at 4:00pm.

This is an embarrassment for the club and they will likely be fined by the Premier league for this (latest) incompetence.

This is what the club have put out:

Update: Turnstiles will open at 3:15pm, with kick-off scheduled for 4:00pm.

“An engineer is on site and will make a full appraisal at approximately 3pm. Further information will be available as soon as possible,” 

“We apologise for the inconvenience caused. We will bring you further information as soon as it is available.”

This comes after journalists found out today that Newcastle would no longer provide food in the press room – what’s going on with all this incompetence at Newcastle these days?

And this is all before this extremely important game even kicks off!

    Unfortunately Saylor will be as thick in 1 hour as he is now.

    100% commitment you say? My dog gives 100% when I play fetch on a field.

    Have to say mind, Koeman has got southampton playing some simple, yet lovely football. Playing on the counter with a quick tempo, they are very well organised and are entertaining to watch

    I know they don’t probably eat or deserve it but how petty and pathetic that is by nufc. Taking cost cutting to the extreme. They’ll be charging them for the use of the press room soon.

    This club is a joke now.

    pardews excuse after loss.”we wasnt in the right mind set because we was supposed to kick off at 3 instead of 4. sudden changes like that can really affect a team like Newcastle. we was a bit slow today.”

    That screen probably should have been up 6 months ago but it’s likely MA had it shipped from hong kong to save some £ and the thing is only turning up.

    My old portable black and white tv is bigger than that.

    Whats the betting we are having an old analogue tv, bought from Ebay 12 months ago fitted.

    My god Ashley you can’t even fit a wall mounting tv yet alone run our club !!!!

    The FA’s ‘proper and fitting owners test’ certainly asks questions about Cashley

    The telly looks bonk, how good would a four sided one look instead.
    At least a third of the ground won’t be able to see it, waste of money even though I suspect it’ll be full of ads for SD.

    No they don’t, not after having their heart ripped out in one transfer window and losing their manager and only replacing him with an untried one. How could they?

    That’s sarcasm just incase anyone missed it.

    Amazingly someone tried to say they’ve not had it as bad as us this summer. Deluded no doubt.
