Salomon Rondon Sends Out Positive Message To Fans

Salomon Rondon tweeted a message after his excellent performance yesterday for Newcastle when he scored two goals.

The second was a blistering header that almost broke the net – not seen since the days of a certain Alan Shearer.

And Rondon held the ball up well in the second half and drew some fouls – like Alan used to do – to help relieve the pressure on the defense.

His experience was there for all to see.

We have to sign this player permanently as soon as possible.

It seems that Alan Shearer is already a big fan of Rondon, and he should know how good a striker is.

Translation – Three very important points and two goals in St. James’ Park … Perfect Saturday!

There seems a lot more to come from Rondon – once he gets fully match fit.

That’s what Rafa says – so imustst be right!

    Anyone else see the new war memorial which has been unveiled at St James’ Park, carrying the names of the 30 former nufc players who died serving during both World Wars, located at the Alder-Sweeney Memorial Garden behind the Milburn Stand?

    Respect. I don’t think the fat twat tat seller understands what our club is all about – frankly I’m surprised he agreed to a naming of the garden and a memorial too.

    A man running a business in a way that’s disagreeable to most does not make him any less human. Contrary to popular belief Mike Ashley is not an evil human. He’s an unsavoury, immoral businessman. This does not make his feelings on those lost in conflict any less than yours or anybody’s. Spinning a monument and the naming of a garden in to a piece to attack Mike Ashley only serves to highlight what an absolute fool you are.

    “The creeping takeover of struggling high streets by Sports Direct tycoon Mike Ashley has come at a cost of 6,000 jobs and more than £1bn in unpaid bills, The Sunday Telegraph can reveal.

    “An analysis of Mr Ashley’s raids on distressed retailers and pre-packaged deals with administrators shows how he has capitalised on Britain’s insolvency laws to build his empire.”

    Is this a man overloaded with empathy?

    Imagine with a proper no. 10. Ayoze if not scoring, does absolutely nothing. And he has missed so many chances in the last 3 games by poor finishing.

    A no. 10 in January as priority and we are settled for avoiding relegation. But we need to keep yedlin fit all season. His pace is our biggest asset.

    A couple of good results eases the spectre of Ashley’s ownership, but I’m afraid we are in limbo as long as he owns the club.
    His business philosophy is low end and usually cashing in on failed businesses, which would be ok if he then invested in them, but he doesn’t. A trip to a Sports Direct High Street outlet soon gives you an idea of his standards.
    I’m saddened by the clear lack of maintenance at the stadium; I used to be really proud of it but now it’s getting shabby!

    If I were a Fulham fan I would’ve been fuming. They score a perfectly legitimate goal (yes, Mitro), disallowed, concede immediately after (30 seconds).

    That’s them, could’ve been us. Bring VAR. It won’t favour the big team.

    “An analysis of Mr Ashley’s raids on distressed retailers and pre-packaged deals with administrators shows how he has capitalised on Britain’s insolvency laws to build his empire.”

    All that while abdicating responsibility for a targeted distressed company’s final salary [DB] pension scenes by negotiating a deal such that the schemes are taken into the PPF, which is financed by other DB schemes – in other words using scheme assets which include the contributions made by scheme members and employers. Members of such schemes more often than not lose out by having to take a reduced pension on retirement.

    Such arrangements are perfectly legal and give scheme members more than they’d had their schemes been allowed to go bust. However, they do give buyers like Ashley a way out of taking responsibility for distressed employers’ DB pension schemes.

    Caring capitalism? I should cocoa!

    I’d imagine the cost of the memorial plaque and the garden would be coppers in relation to the club’s turnover and would probably have been approved locally – paid for out of the corporate PR or whatever budget.

    I was wondering what Ashley saw in these High Street shops as they’re falling like dominoes. He knows they’re going to fail and close, however he picked up 28M worth of stock from Evans for his 9M to sell online and in the best shops, don’t expect many of them to be still open in a couple of years. Gawd knows how much stock came with 90M of HoF.

    Thought the ref was pretty fair with his decisions, we could and should have had a pen, the arm was out and the ball was heading goalwards, the ball to arm scenario didn’t come into that incident. But they probably should have had a pen as well so the two balanced out.

    He could have easily issued more yellow cards but instead let the game flow, so an 8/10 for me.

    Last week after the Watford game i said that I thought Rondon would come good with more games and I based my opinion on a single incident in the game.

    He jumped for a ball and landed a bit awkwardly but didn’t flop clumsily to the ground which you might have expected from such a big bloke. He instead did a neat little backward roll coming up nimbly onto his feet.

    That for me showed he’s quite agile for a big bloke, and he showed that against Bournemouth, could be a little faster but he’s definitely no carthorse.

    Thoughts on yesterday:

    Odd how our team ethic and willingness to fight for the cause has taken a marked upturn since Lascelles and Shelvey have been absent. Two players who most would’ve had in our top 3 most important players.

    So why has it happened? Mere coincidence, I don’t buy that, there is a cause to everything and we absolutely have looked more determined and fluid since 2nd half of the Watford match.

    Maybe they’re becoming complacent with their newfound status as leaders and automatic picks among the squad? Neither has been at the standard shown last season. Did the overlooking of national call-ups demotivate them? With Shelvey I think it probably has for sure, he played his best football of his career for 6months and was never even really considered despite calls in the media for his inclusion, he made little secret of how much it would’ve meant to him.

    Additionally in Shelvey’s case, he more than anybody benefited from Gayle and they grew to have a great understanding.

    If we receive a silly bid of £50-60m for Lascelles I can see Rafa taking it, provided he gets to use it all!

    For me Fernandez is just as tough, smarter, better on the ball and has the leadership/organisational abilities. Great buy.

    Schar is classy too, if less physical than either Lascelle’s or Fernandez. Makes such a difference to the confidence of the team to have 2 comfy, decisive ballplayers at CB and perhaps being a bit weaker at set-pieces is a price worth paying at the moment.

    Throw Lejeune into the mix when back fit – not as enthusiastic about him as some, but back end of last season he had his best spell of form and started to really look the part. Main criticisms are he’s another high quality passer, but seems to think he’s a good dribbler too, often gets caught upfield elaborating in possession and is susceptible to balls into the channel.

    Clark is a more than adequate 4th choice and has enough ability to come in and make others earn their place back if he gets on a good run of form. Again, he too is better on the ball than Lascelles.

    Of all our players who may be attracting interest from top clubs though, I think Yedlin may be the most monitored. Has all the assets to hit the same heights as Kyle Walker and could see many clubs taking an interest in him.

    Right now priority buys would be:

    For now, the best CB’s are those two, Fernandez the pick. But, we’re spoilt for choice in that position. The other three can easily slot into place

    I’d stick with the back four, as is. Have kept major danger at bay.

    As much as I despise Ashley’s tenure at the club you can hardly blame him for snapping up HoF etc for cut price deals , they may have had assets but they were effectively bust. The high street is in demise and all these large chains are struggling.
    Clearly Ashley needs to streamline failing shops , the world has moved on and the internet , A.I, automation and manufacturing methods are creating less manual jobs (automotive industry will be next ).
    Luckily football along with other sports are something that will survive technology – HWTL

    Whilst doing the necessary decorating and fixing stuff in my new gaff yesterday I was listening on the radio.

    At one point I’m sure they said yesterday was the 140th EPL game since Nufc had a opposition player sent off against them.

    Any statistician confirm this?

    Sounds about right though.

    It’s a bit naive to assume that VAR won’t favour the big teams. They spend more time in the opposition box, have more corners etc, so the likelihood is that they’ll benefit from far more spurious appeals for penalties, which will be awarded on the flimsiest of video evidence. Also, as we saw during the WC, the decision to use video evidence is highly subjective and inconsistent, so the same refereeing biases we see at the moment will just be replicated with VAR. It will be a disaster IMO.
