Newly Married Player Seeking Newcastle Talks

1:11 pm, Sunday, June 28th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 261 Comments

We’re pretty sure that Alan Pardew was promised some decent money to spend in this summer’s transfer window before he surprisingly opted to join Crystal Palace at the end of last year after he was appointed by Chairman Steve Parish after the London club had fired Neil Warnock, and were third bottom of the league.

As we all know Alan moved Palace up to 10th place in the league 5 places above Newcastle and 9 points better off – so Alan did well in his first half season at his former club.

The latest news is that Pardew wants Tim Krul at the club – but in late April Alan denied that he was trying to get Tim – although that may have changed in the last couple of months.

Tim Krul – wants assurances from Newcastle

The news is that Tim – who was married to girlfriend Claire Hall earlier this month – wants to have a talk with new head coach Steve McClaren.

There’s nothing wrong with that, especially when another club is supposed to be after you,  and we expect Steve to be talking to a number of the players in the next couple of weeks.

Tim did not have a good second half of the season, but it was a nightmare time for both fans and players, so it’s probably best forgotten, with most players playing nowhere near their best.

Tim will also want to know who is going to be the goalkeeper coach – whether Andy Woodman is staying or he may leave to join Palace – and if that happens Eric Steele will be brought in.

We hope that Tim, stays on board at Newcastle, and that Newcastle have three good goalkeepers at the club.

Maybe that’s Tim Krul, Rob Elliot and Karl Darlow – because last season we had only two,  and young and inexperienced Jak Alnwick had to play for us for eight games.

Most top PL sides have three experienced goalkeepers simply because it’s such a specialist position – and Newcastle should start acting as a top club.

As we said, we hope Tim stays at Newcastle – he can be an excellent goalkeeper for us – and certainly doesn’t lack confidence, as he amply showed in that amazing performance in the World Cup last year for Holland.

And that game he played against Tottenham in late 2013 when we won 1-0 at White Hart Lane, was one of the best performances by a Newcastle goalkeeper ever – he looked unbeatable.

Tale a look.

Comments welcome.

    He’s gonna need a lot of persuading this time to stay after last season’s debacle .
    Reported fallouts with Colo, Playing with a joke of a defence in front of him.
    Yes I would suggest he is going to need a lot of persuading

    He was a disgrace last season

  • 3 Geremi's Prosthetic Leg Fund // Jun 28, 2015 at 1:34 PM

    Wouldn’t be too bothered if he did leave as he has been suspect for a while now. He is a good keeper though and you couldn’t begrudge him a fresh start at a club who are ran professionally and have some footballing ambition.

    More importantly though it would be another shot in the foot for the club and further confirm how far we’ve fallen in recent times. Another indication of our fast sinking reputation. So in that regard I’d hope he’d be persuaded to stay.

  • 4 sparky55 // Jun 28, 2015 at 1:37 PM

    Bit harsh why o why…he did have the worst defence in the league sat in front of him and he was left exposed by very poor defending at least 5 times every game so as a whole I don’t think he did too bad.

    His distribution is dreadful but I’m sure a decent coach can sort that out…but he’s still a good keeper in my book and I’d like to see him stay

    IMO

  • 8 optimistic prime // Jun 28, 2015 at 1:40 PM

    Krull hasn’t improved in 5years.

    Good shot stopper but the weakness in all other areas make him average at best.

    He can go for me, doubt he’d be missed.

  • 11 Big Archie // Jun 28, 2015 at 1:46 PM

    Can’t believe some of the comments here.

    Krul has been spectacular for us – and talk of bad games is pretty unfair really.

    Every player has good games and bad games but Krul has had considerably more good than bad and he’s getting a slating for it.

    If he had a decent defence to play in front of him it would be a different matter altogether.

    It’s completely unrealistic to think that for some reason the press, management, results are not going to take their toll on his performance.

  • 12 jazzyp // Jun 28, 2015 at 1:54 PM

    Strange how so many fans have short memories of tim Krull having a crap season yet he won rave reviews and was awarded man of the match numerous times

  • 13 ShirebrookToon // Jun 28, 2015 at 1:56 PM

    Krul ain’t a bad goalkeeper just needs a better gk coach behind him

  • 14 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 1:58 PM

    OK Tim isn’t a rubbish keeper, he has good and bad points, but the bad should have been coached out of him by now, hence why he was fired straight into the Dutch side and slowly slid down the order. I guess at best he’s third choice now, shame really, and not helped by having no confidence in his back four to play out safely from the back. As he is, no loss if replaced. Coached properly a real Keeper. In any sense of the word.

  • 15 ShirebrookToon // Jun 28, 2015 at 1:58 PM

  • 16 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 2:00 PM

  • 18 jazzyp // Jun 28, 2015 at 2:02 PM

    Shire
    Granted Krul made mistakes, But that is the problem with being a keeper, In that every mistake is highlighted ten fold.
    And it is hardly surprising when you consider how many times he unfortunately had to pick the ball out of the back of the net due the incompetence of our defence

  • 19 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 28, 2015 at 2:02 PM

  • 22 optimistic prime // Jun 28, 2015 at 2:05 PM

    Krulls distribution is woeful, it’s been obvious for years. Any footballer with aspirations of playing for their national team should be able to recognise and work on their weaknesses or ask others on areas to improve their game.

    He doesn’t command his area at all and rarely tries to collect or punch the ball from a set piece.

    A lot of our defencive problems start with Krull, either he kicks the ball straight to them or because he hadn’t punched or collected from a set piece they have a chance to score. I don’t think he can jump higher than 3inches.

    There’s a hell of a lot more to goal keeping than shot stopping and Krull is poor in quite a few other areas, people are blinded by mom performances which are judged on shot stopping.

    He has loads of room for improvement IMO. There’s no difference in his play now than several years ago which is very disappointing as a lot of it is quite easy to work on.

    Not often OP and I agree but Tim’s finest moment was in Palermo 2nd November 2006.

    He isn’t any better than the current Palace goalkeeper to be honest. So I don’t see why they would want him ? They’ve also Hennesey as their back up goalkeeper.

    He’s got a shit defence in front of him for sure, but his kicking and distribution is very poor. Given was in the same situation for years and I always regarded him highly.

    I didn’t think Blackley was out of turn though, he was entitled to his comments and got as good as he gave. Certainly nowhere near as awful a personality as the disturbing and deeply unpleasant character of Jeff who insists on interspersing his meaningless links and prowess with search engine execution with pointless and irritating personal attacks. I realise that’s not exactly a compliment Blackley if you’re reading but you know what I mean 🙂

    Can’t believe what I’m seeing on here about Krul being no great loss because all he can do is stop shots! Have some of you gone mad? Krul may not be perfect but he is reliable and if we bring in a decent CB to anchor our defense he will shine. We have enough woes without needing to find a replacement keeper! Who could we bring in at all near the talent of Krul? And perfect ball distribution is not the number 1 priority for a keeper stopping shots is and Krul can do that when not having to play the role of Keeper and stand in CB!

    Sorry for the tone but I think a dose of cold hard reality was in order!

    Think its more the fact Krul has gone backwards in development at NUFC, distribution is still terrible (he should know how to kick a ball by now) and he doesn’t command his area

    I think his main problem is the lack of competition, no one pushes him so he is now too comfortable hopefully Darlow will stick a rocket up his backside and he will try again. More to a keepers role than shot stopping and unfortunately thats all Krul has shown

    I heard that they got a few key injuries at crunch time, and they fell away with no time to recover the loss. Like i say, just what i heard

  • 94 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 28, 2015 at 3:47 PM

    woah that was like the candy man, I said his name and he appeared!!!

  • 95 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 3:48 PM

    Willow – if you look at some of Tims performances last season the leaky defence did expose some shortfalls in his game, such as his inability to command his box, his reticence to come out and intercept, his long kick is too high therefore gives the opposition the advantage of retrieval, his throwing out and playing from the back is almost non existent although again, the poor defence had a lot to do with that. His shot stopping and reaction times are at the other extreme impressive for a reasonably big lad. Coaching of a high order could make him a great keeper. Which he isn’t atm.

  • 96 optimistic prime // Jun 28, 2015 at 3:51 PM

    I heard injuries also, which doesn’t fill you with confidence saying his fitness bloke is also linked with the job here.

  • 97 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 3:52 PM

    Welsh you just got stalked is why you’re quiet. Go back to your soporific working mens club turn and we’ll be happy enough.

  • 98 WWSBRD // Jun 28, 2015 at 3:53 PM

    BandB
    Haha probably, tough thing to do when the players dont have someone to play for though. Personally I think McClaren was nailed on to be our manager in Jan but he wanted to get Derby to the PL before joining us and we didnt want to pay the compo so it suited both parties

    Players for both clubs then had no long term manager to play for or to be motivated by so both squads feel apart…could be wrong but who doesnt love a conspiracy

  • 99 BandB // Jun 28, 2015 at 3:53 PM

    Tsunki.

    His distribution has been shocking and it is hard to understand why it hasn’t been corrected.
    But I am with Willow.
    I too fears the “woes” of finding a replacement, as the head coach may have to “trust them” on that one.

  • 100 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 3:55 PM

    Crap I am so slow trying to wrestle unsuccessfully with autocorrect Yo did my post before I did!

  • 101 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 3:56 PM

    BandB don’t get me wrong he’s still our no. 1 by a long way. it’s true he probably needs competition. Badly.

  • 102 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 3:58 PM

    Apparently Phil Gristle is balking at our terms. We’re offering 4 lbs of cheese and some tinned salmon. When you’re dealing with top, top players you have to tread lightly Lee. Up the offer to 5 lbs of cheese immediately. Harrumph.

  • 103 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:00 PM

    Krul’s thin feet have come back to haunt him. His size 15’s are only 3 inches wide. Try kicking a ball with those. Harrumph.

  • 104 welshgeordie9 // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:00 PM

    I’ve been quiet because I wanted to not because I had to, as for being stalked couldn’t care to be honest, the clowns gone anyway.

  • 105 BandB // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:01 PM

    Tsunki.

    I read (I think I posted) an article by Stuart Pearce in which he said Darlow was “all potential” but nowhere near ready to be a regular first choice keeper in the Prem.
    Given the club’s stated policy….which is to replace when the right deal comes along…..I don’t think he is dispensable.

  • 106 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:02 PM

    Apparently Derby suffered with some late season athlete’s foot and jock itch BandB mate. It’s very distracting. They never fully recovered.

  • 107 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:05 PM

    63 goals against in 38 matches isn’t all that bad lads and lasses. With our tremendous depth at CB we’re going to get that down to 61 goals against next season. It’s a promise from Lee!!!

  • 108 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:07 PM

    With all the fuss about minor things such as bringing in a few new players I’m worried that the really big deals won’t get done. Where do we stand with a new contract for the dancing poodles for the half time entertainment?…..Nobody knows do they? Harrumph.

  • 109 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:08 PM

    BandB I didn’t mean to say he’s dispensable. That would be a disaster given our current policy of not buying anyone ever 🙂 I just meant to say there are better all – round keepers out there he could be replaced with for not outrageous fees. Don’t ask me to name them I’m not Jeff. Ok I’ll stop now.

  • 110 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:09 PM

    Unbloodybelievable. No dancing poodles. What’s next? No cream for Lee’s tea? No brolly for the Wally? Harrumph.

  • 111 WWSBRD // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:11 PM

  • 112 Blaydon-Toon // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:12 PM

    Afternoon people long time no post – have been reading away watching the in house spats from afar … Went up for the last game of the season as it could have bee the last in the prem for quite a while – still no signings as of yet which is making the natives wrestles

  • 113 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:13 PM

    Tsunki mate, you’re worrying about all the wrong things. Just because every other club in the world of football has signed players by now doesn’t mean Steve doesn’t have us sorted. Why, we’ve got at least 3 players in the squad already who might be capable of playing for another club in the Prem! So stop your worrying mate.

  • 114 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:13 PM

    Did they all have a pow wow at Greggs Moto services in Wetherby today? I hope they all availed themselves of the free sausage roll at vouchercodes. Don’t want to see profligacy when there’s no money for transfers.

  • 115 Blaydon-Toon // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:15 PM

    On the keeper situation – would cash in on wor Timmy as much as he has done for us – Tom Heaton had a great season in my opinion snap him up

  • 116 BandB // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:15 PM

    Tsunki,

    I know you weren’t say that.
    My English comprehension is pretty passable for a “wannabe.”
    People keep saying “get rid” …about Cisse, Tiote, Krul ….as if this was a Football Manager game.
    I would happily see them all replaced with better.
    The question is, would they be?

  • 117 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:15 PM

    I want a new team mascot. A real honey badger is the ticket for us. Set him loose in the visitor’s dressing room at the half. It should be live on the big screen as well. Where is the creativity Mike? The new ideas to make us popular again? Harrumph.

  • 118 Blaydon-Toon // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:17 PM

    Had Ketsy been on with his wish lists yet and if so who does he want in – always brightens up the blog even tho I know he gets on some peoples nerves …

  • 119 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:19 PM

    Honey badger don’t give a sh*t. Neither should we. The players should all have long hair and scraggly beards and snarl at the ref. Then we’ll get wor proper share of penalties. Harrumph.

  • 120 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:20 PM

    BandB not being problem! I have also the good understand!

  • 121 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:23 PM

    Blaydon Ketsy never disappoints. His famous wish lists are like random firework displays.

    Oooooohhhh!

    AAAAHHHHHHH!

    😀

  • 122 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:23 PM

    Like it or not we’ll have to build the club around the few good players we have. Now people will probably giggle a bit but one of those players is Jack Colback (stop that giggling Tsunki!). Jack was in the top 6 in the Prem in successful midfield tackles, he scored a few goals and he’s the ginger Pirlo. Another, is our great friend Janmaat. Good player, gets up the pitch well, and gets his assists. Another is Sissoko. Has to play well more consistently. Perez needs to bulk up. Add about 3 stone of muscle to that lad and he will crush the opposition. That’s the core of wor squad right now. Beautiful.

  • 123 BandB // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:23 PM

    Is the Argus Flutterby still open, Tsunki?
    I’ve been for a bag of Quavers in that little newsagent in the corner opposite…..

    NO Tsunki!!! You do not have the good understand yet! Put on your thong of comprehension and listen to the excellent teachings on here mate! Listen to optimate! Listen to BandB! Absorb the knowledges!!! Harrumph.

  • 126 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:28 PM

    Phil Neville has become coach at Valencia!

  • 127 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:31 PM

    Bring back Ketsy!!! We want Ketsy!!!! We need some fresh ideas about incoming. Who should be in the mix? Should we snatch Ba from Besiktas? Should we pilfer Remy from Chelsea? We need your invaluable knowledges at this time Ketsy.

  • 128 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:33 PM

    I can’t believe it when Tsunki ignores the teachings, won’t wear his thong of comprehension, and just sulks quietly to himself. That just won’t stand Tsunki! Harrumph.

  • 129 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:34 PM

    In my opinion banning Blackley was very harsh if true.

    He could be an annoying sod but I don’t think he was ever nasty to anybody.

  • 130 jazzyp // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:34 PM

    Chelsea close to agreeing deal to sign Brazilian forward Kenedy from glum Fluminense.

  • 133 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:38 PM

    WWSBRD your conspiracy theory is excellent @103. Can you expand on that? I also heard that Steve burned his bridges at Derby, had a tantrum, looked around desperately for another club to jump to in January and then realized it was us or nothing. For some reason he chose us. That’s the buzz from this end anyway. Harrumph.

  • 134 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:43 PM

    I’m getting a lot of you asking me “G2 why do other clubs spend all their time and energy trying to sign good players early in the summer? Why aren’t they all just following the Lee Charnley Theory of Low Bids?” And I agree with you lot. It clearly states on page 1:
    “For low bid, last minute, panic buying to work properly, all other clubs must follow the same method.”
    There it is, clearly stated on page 1. I hope that clarifies things for you lot. Harrumph.

  • 135 GeordieTwo // Jun 28, 2015 at 4:50 PM

    Oh and one final thought. Are Fluminense really that glum @135 jazzyp mate? I mean have they seen how glum we can be? If they want to see glum they should come to the Toon and just study wor club. Then they would understand glum.

    dont get me wrong fergusson can cross and its something our other wingers cant do apart from rolando but thats about all that he's got going for him imo.

    vukic could be a good backup for siem but we have tons of cm's

    and marv is very creative with a good pass but is a lazy sod and very very inconsistant !

    All i am saying is that it’s possible that Blackley is behind the whole lot. He always seemed to go to extraordinary lengths to make a point. The whole “run to your mummy” thing is a clue. It’s hard to mimic someone that closely, even on-line

  • 202 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:15 PM

    Let’s just say the betting has been suspended on Jib !

  • 203 BandB // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:17 PM

    Well I don’t have Jib.
    Does anyone have Jib?
    Is he is the envelope?

  • 204 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:19 PM

    Huge influx of bets after this incident a few days ago.

    You have some face
    What a cheeky bugger
    Remember Pokat you knobber

    welshgeordie9 // Jun 25, 2015 at 1:20 PM
    So Tsunki is the one doing all the wums. Remember he did Pokat. Knobber.

  • 205 BandB // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:20 PM

    Belfast,

    I was keen to keep Jeff posting under his own name, because when he (that person) has been banned in the past he splinters into a blog virus.
    I know you thought along similar lines.

  • 206 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:23 PM

    A few hours after this a new account pops up called “Pokat” makes one post and then the comment disappears along with Welshgeordies comments.

  • 207 Spellcheck // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:24 PM

    Penfold you are vile.

  • 208 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:25 PM

    BandB no idea about the Argus Butterfly the last time I ventured into that offy was for me dad’s fags and some salt bag tudas. I wouldn’t dare go in there and ask for either of those things now 🙂

    G2 certain about spellchecks’ opposable thumbs in fact I believe he is an incredibly agile fellow. I mean, can you peel a banana with both hands free? Oh you can! Oh. With what? Oh.

  • 209 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:26 PM

    Belfast quit it you troublemaker there’s no more Pokat.

    Is there, Pokat?

  • 210 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:28 PM

    Oh I see I had to read that again Belfast you saying someone attempted to use a ‘pokat’ account?

  • 211 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:28 PM

    no Belfast is right, I saw the Pokat name pop up too

  • 212 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:30 PM

    Yes they made one post and then it disappeared. I didn’t actually think it was Jib until the other day to be totally honest.

  • 213 beermonkey // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:31 PM

    I thought Penfold referring to sitting drinking coffee , in one of his first posts , was a bit of a giveaway also.

    Do you not realise Penfold is Blackley ?

    You see what I mean Markass ?

  • 216 BandB // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:37 PM

    I want to throw some light on Jeff’s charmed life.

    I wrote to Ed once. About Jeff.

    I complained that Jeff’s repeated gay-baiting of another poster was unpleasant.

    Ed replied to say that he had seen nothing offensive. I explained that some of the comments might be in breach of British law. Ed said he was on American servers and it was no skin off his nose.

    I pointed out that the poster in this country might still be liable to prosecution.

    Ed said if the police ever approached him for names he would co-operate fully.

  • 217 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:38 PM

    Skunki I was just pointing out after you had mentioned that post 108 and 111 where from the same person a new account pops up called Pokat.

    Apology ?

  • 218 toonking // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:38 PM

    hmm
    today seems to be the day about missing bloggers.

    one i’ve noticed isn’t around ATM is the great anti colo. Must be in his office studing who is next years target

  • 219 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:39 PM

    I think Jib is runni.g out as favourite. His thinking is that all the vilest material his ‘personality’ is screaming out to use finds it’s cent in these pointless wind up accounts. What’s with security on this blog? By all accounts Blackley has tried all means to return to the. Co.uk blog but can’t get on. This guy must be seriously short on ip addresses to post from, surely there are WordPress administration tools to get this sucka nailed? Y’get me? 🙂

  • 220 toonking // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:39 PM

    of course for anyone who doesn’t know who i mean, it’s great “toonbrother”

  • 221 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:40 PM

    Belfast @. 231 accepted. Ha ha. I did sort of apologise when I said I had to read it again. Oh dammit I’m sorry ok? SOOOORRRRYYYYY!

  • 222 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:41 PM

    Welshie I think you where basically being trolled to deflect attention away from the real culprit mate.

  • 223 JamesToon // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:41 PM

    we all know what we need
    but unless willo starts slagging of Ashley he will be with us for another year and we wont replace as we wont payout the wages

    some1 posted a link earlier as a reason for lack of activity and that was pretty logical but I am not expecting any1 in until we get back from the states
    for its to late they will miss a lot of the conditioning work with the squad and miss all the bonding

  • 225 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:44 PM

    Belfast didn’t the ‘other’ jib also forget which Jib he was and post identical comments, then had to go on a run of pasting identical comments to try and cover it up?

  • 226 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:45 PM

    Toonking right now I think toonbotherer would be welcomed like a long lost son

  • 227 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:48 PM

    Jeff I was actually disappointed when I realised it was you because I stuck up for you a few times over it. It stopped that day though so I didn’t say nothing.

    But I’m not letting Blackley take the blame when I know it wasn’t him.

    If that makes me gay so be it !

  • 228 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:48 PM

    So it’s too late Charnley
    Oh it’s too late
    Though we really did try to break it
    The Toon fans Pride has died
    And we can’t hide and we just can’t fake it. .

    Sing along when you know the words..

    it’s too late…..etc

  • 229 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:50 PM

    Rumbled jeff. Rumbled. I’m as bad as anyone for retorts but maybe a concerted effort to sidestep this dysfunctional is for the best. Cut off the air supply. I’ll do it if everyone else will.

    Yes Skunki I defended Jib after it happened.

  • 232 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:51 PM

    Belfast….. errrrr no. No, never mind.

  • 233 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:54 PM

    G2 btw I’m not sulking or anything. I’m dusting of the Banjo of Decisive Victory! Peace in our Blog! This requires a tight G String…G2 – assistance please!

    Harrrumph!

  • 235 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:56 PM

    Belfast

    Well whoever they are,and whether you are right, wrong or partly right, it is becoming a bore. Out of all the wum-accounts, i doubt there are more than 2 people. I am certainly not wanting to fight with you over it, even though you call me markass 😉

  • 236 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:56 PM

    Piss take that Blackley has been banned and you haven’t tbh

    Skunki you solved it well kind off 80% me 20% you 🙂

  • 237 BandB // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:57 PM

    Let’s not forget.
    The guy is already banned.
    So we can’t blame Ed for us treating Jib like he was Jeff and wasn’t banned.

    I won’t engage either.
    He’s banned.
    I can’t see his posts.

  • 238 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:59 PM

    I would say 3 markASS. Two of them are harmless most of the time and then there’s Jeff who is dangerous and should probably check in to Broadmoor.

  • 239 BandB // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:00 PM

    Congrats Belfast,

    Sharp as a tack……

  • 240 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:00 PM

    Is Blackley banned? I don’t think he posted anything outrageous or offensive.

  • 241 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:02 PM

    well 4 if you count Pokat lol

  • 242 toonking // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:02 PM

    tsunki
    when ever I read posts make by himself it reminds me of that old idian magpie old anti shola.

  • 243 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:04 PM

    Uggghhhhhh…….

  • 244 ToonFromLeeds // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:05 PM

    sorry tsunki it was an open goal lol

  • 245 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:05 PM

    BandB // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:37 PM

    If that was the essence of your exchnge with Ed then it is a very cynical approach to blog moderation.

    Lee “Penfold” Charnley // Jun 28, 2015 at 6:27 PM

    Spellcheck wind your neck in they’ll think we are in a cattle truck!

    and WTF is this about ?

  • 247 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:06 PM

    BellEND

    Could be 3 i suppose. Either way, i am probably going to go with BandB and skunki, and stop responding to him/them/it.

  • 248 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:06 PM

    Nah It was really Skunki who cracked it. I was on another page until he pointed out that little slip up the other day.

    He was actually trolling himself for a while. That’s how bananas he is.

  • 249 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:08 PM

    Aye Belfest, but maybe his multiple personalities dont get on with each other 😀

  • 250 toonking // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:09 PM

    As a whole there is a large amount of common bloggers away at the moment

    catch in norway
    toon proledgy
    toonbrother
    toonKK
    even I don’t really bother chatting that much.

    basically it’s like most non international event summers, boring boring news paper stories. due to such a crisis football club it’s hard to even take the smallest difference in oppinion softly, it’s a fans civil wars

  • 251 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:10 PM

    I agree Markass that’s why I decided to say nowt to the poster after the other account was banned. Just didn’t think it was fair that Blackley was getting the blame for it.

  • 252 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:13 PM

    Fair enough. From what i have been told,Blackley was banned for over aggressive posts,and you are right that other people are getting away with different but more vile posts atm.

  • 253 toonking // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:17 PM

    Some articles might hold a bit of truth but the majority are nonsense,these pages are usually covered with headlines “England are ready to win the world cup” “england are knocked out early group stages” ” england manager under pressure” ” english clubs need more english players bring in a 6-5 rule”

    As well as the main sports page headlines you’ll also have the minor sports page headlines “usaine bolt, mo farah beth tweddle in olimpics and commonwealth games.

    One piece of good news for the papers is the ashes does start soon.

  • 254 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:18 PM

    Course I could be being cynical but if we just don’t engage… you know who…Perhaps the lack of posts ( clicks make prizes) will make someone less reticent about banning the…you know who.. 😉

  • 255 Belfast // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:20 PM

    Are you calling for a boycott Skunki ?

  • 256 YouCouldn'tMakeItUp // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:20 PM

    Tsunki

    Still think your course of action is right, if no one esponds they become obsolete.

  • 257 Tsunki // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:21 PM

    There’s always Wimbledon to look forward to. it’s on itv3 at 10 pm ha ha ok sorry.

  • 258 toonking // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:22 PM

    As much as the ashes itself is a great sports event, It’s nowhere near as big as the two football and athletics event.
    these 4 have a much larger amount of players and athletes known world wide and are also offical sports that mus be shown on analog TV

  • 259 Mister Tuff // Jun 28, 2015 at 7:28 PM

    Wow a lazy no news Sunday and suddenly all the loonies turn up.
    A scumbag will always be a scumbag.
    A tool will always be a tool.
    A thicko will always be a thicko.
    A mug will always be a mug.
    A knacker will always be a knacker.

    Their personalities are not variable dependent upon who they are a speaking to – althought mugs might want to believe that.

    A knacker will always be a knacker.

  • 260 Clematis // Jun 28, 2015 at 8:47 PM

    I always believe that when you comment on a blog, etc., you should write/comment as if other bloggers were in the room with you. You know, a kind of respect thing. What goes on here – wums, multiple posters, vile comments relating to disabilities, and so on – is appalling. I use Ed’s blog to check for toon updates (which usually come through even before Sky announcements) but I’m giving this site a wide berth. Shame.
