Newcastle Fans Talk About The Game Today As Club Restricts Flag Display

It’s starting to be the time when we need a win whatever game we are playing.

And we are at home to Manchester United today and Jose Mourinho has never won a league game at St. James’ Park.

We are hoping for all 3 points and just one point will probably not alter our position in the league table – which is currently 4th bottom after yesterday’s games.

A defeat will sink the spirits of Newcastle fans and we will all have a very long two weeks before our next game at Bournemouth.

Newcastle fans

On the other hand, a win would rejuvenate the long-suffering Newcastle fans.

We need the win.

And it seems the club has restricted the flag display today – wonder why?


Howay The Lads!!

    Ashley has banned the flags today

    Slimani also not fit to start

    Waiting until 2 weeks time to get up to speed

    Slight slight chance of bench

    Ashley – twat isn’t even near how he should be described. Even the “c” word doesn’t come close.

    Jose never won here, let’s stretch that record a bit further. Keep them quiet for 75 minutes and then send Slimani on to score the only goal. How hard is that? 🙂

    I’d imagine the flags be welcomed in North Korea.

    Rafa calls for the fans to get behind the lads and Kim Jong Ashley bans the Flags? He’s undermined Rafa yet again and we can only hope the media pick up on it though doubtless Ashley’s chums at Sky’ll put on a spin on it to justify his action.

    Is there no limit to Ashley’s stupidity?

    The trouble is that they have quality and divers all over the pitch, difficult to stop players diving when they are allowed to get away with it without fear of repercussions,after all Valencia, Young, lindegard etc could give lessons (and probably do) , Sanchez Lukaku and Pogba are quality, we’ll have to be on top form to stop them for 90 + mins and hope our forward players can do the business at the other end……very difficult…….I’m going for a 4-0 win for us

    Gallowgate flags slyly sneaked their biggest flag ever
    into the ground last match then unfurled it just before KO

    It read: “Don’t ever give up on your club. Keep supporting it, it’s your club and trust me, one day you will get your club back and it will be everything you wanted it to be. Newcastle United is bigger than anyone. It hurts I know, but just keep going. He is only one man we are a city, a whole population. Trust me.”
    A quote from Keegan

    Seriously what did anyone expect NUFC to do ?

    There is less than a 10 percent chance of getting a win today without a striker. Biggest disappointment not having Slimani fit. Has gone from maybe making the bench at Palace to not making it to today. Something tells me we can’t rely on him to be fit and firing for rest of the season.

    As much as I hate it, I am starting to get that 2015/16 feeling in that it is inevitable that we are down. Ruing the defensive nature of our play.

    Let’s hope we pull off a miracle today.

    White Tino
    actually in a Chronicle poll the vast majority of
    fans think unity and getting behind the manager
    is the way forward until seasons end.
    Wor flags had a deal with the club and broke it.
    They’ll be advertising
    “Eat at Sloppy Joe’s next”

    Right, need an answer pretty sharp. Anybody wanting to go to the game today? No joking, cost you NOTHING. Just the ability to push a wheelchair a couple of hundred yards.
    I can get someone if required, just thought I’d make this offer for those unable to attend regularly, but I need to know ASAP as I need to make arrangements otherwise.

    0-0 first half, quite tight and we defend quite well.

    0-2 second half, we run out of steam as they notch it up a gear with Sanchez coming into his own.

    Don’t expect anything different to what we’ve seen for 90 percent of the season.

    Jib explain how waving flags and creating an atmosphere isn’t getting behind the team, Rafael and club?? Only one worried about flags is ashley and the odd fool or wum like yourself

    Ashley does not trust or like Raffa.
    He wants him out.
    Would have sacked him by now, but won’t pay the compo.

    Rafa would have walked by now, but won’t pay the compo.
    Also, he is holding out for a possible take over. Just a slim hope.
    In the mean time he is in well paid employment.

    Explains the transfer window. Ins depedent on outs and balacing the books.
    No money spent.

    He did the same thing with the singing section – anti Ashley chants started pouring in, and he disbanded it, putting the family sections right next to the (often aggressive) away fans.

    Honestly, I was half expecting this when the Keegan quote was put up against Burnley.

    The man is as petulant as they come.

    Knew this would happen as soon as I read it at the game. Only a matter of time and it hasn’t taken him long has it? Knacker.
    Anyone wanting to go today better speak up rapidly. People often day ‘too expensive’ etc and I get that – it ain’t cheap – so I thought before I get anyone else I would throw the offer out. Free entrance. Cost you nowt. Bit of exercise thrown in! 🙂 Need to know very soon though.

    I’m not bothered about flags, it was something different but it hardly improved the atmosphere. We’ve not won a home game since October!! I’d rather we got behind the side vocally than wave a few flags.

    Nobody wanting to go then? Such is life. Was a bit late notice, but only just found out myself. Not to worry, but can’t wait any longer so have to withdraw the offer.
    Wherever you watch from, enjoy the game.
    Howay the lads!!!!!

    No expections today lads. Go out there and give it your all, as you always do, for Rafa and the fans.
    The top six have shown this season that they can be beaten. Good luck.

    Our Toon, thought someone would have done so mate, but maybe a bit late notice. If you’ve not been before especially, great way to start. Can’t leave it any longer though so I’ve got someone else. Just thought I’d make the offer.

    Hudders throwing caution to the wind and attacking, pressing and being rewarded for a positive performance so far.

    Rafa surely has to have a real go at ManUrd today and change the cautious approach
