    In recent years I have the impression our final match of the season was played at home. Is that right?

    This will be a harder season than last year as all the teams around us and the newly promoted will be investing heavily. If it is same old for us then Ashley IS taking the piss.

    At least the run in looks manageable, 5 out of the 6 are relatively easy.

    This could be a good thing it might get Ashley to pony up the dosh for players knowing we have to quality in to compete as we potentially could get beat in everyone of these games!! Cardiff is not guaranteed victory either as they will be tough to break down!

    We could catch some teams cold at the start of the season but it could turn into quite a few damaging defeats if we don’t get some quality up top to finish the chances we create !

    I really hope that if Rafa leaves NUFC he does an interview that fully explains what is exactly is happening in NUFC That would be the best FU to Ashely

    Ooh the bus is moving fast today;

    Someone mentioned Valon Berisha,couldn’t remember who,is one of the players I want us to sign myself, along with that Lille Mfdr Maia. Could be another Merino.Couple of bargain buys I would like to see.Mariano Diaz or Alassane Plea for striker department instead of the likes of paceless Bas Dost,Rondon etc..
    And hoping someone from the championship takes Joselu off the squad.
