Video – New Star Allan Saint-Maximin – In Action Against Man United


Newcastle’s new signing in the summer – Allan Saint Maximilian – had an excellent game against Manchester United last time out.

We came back from the embarrassment of losing 5-0 at Leicester City by getting our second win of the season.

It was against another top-six side when we had the famous, unexpected 1-0 win against a below-par Red Devils side a week ago today.

How time flies when you’re having fun.

🙂

Here is a YouTube video of Allan’s terrific performance – this lad can become a massive star on Tyneside.

Hope so!

    Have to agree with jib, Johnj, but the criticism is actually constructive, it was way too long and wouldn’t get read, i always switch off when I scan something more than three paragraphs long and don’t even start to read it. You’ve got about two decent paragraphs to hit the mark and bullet points are definitely the way to go people love reading them because they think one of them surely has to be interesting 🙂

    On the Peter Kenyon hoodoo doodoo schmoodoo its absolute tosh just thinking about talking about it.

    The drivel about this “consortium” of speculative investors risking all they can afford on a potential relegation candidate with no brand desirability and not enough money to pay for transfers or to achieve promotion – which band of absolute cranks would contemplate that? Nobody thats who. Get real folks, they are phantoms invented by the media and a few self-publicists.

    I just don’t get why someone would get past the first sentence of writing that takeover nonsense before screwing it up in a ball and launching it at the bin as a bad idea. Rich but entirely mad investors gambling on a probable relegation target they can’t afford to rescue? Eh? Eh? Who are the bigger idiots? The writers or avid readers of this guff?

    I’m off to see Valencia v Lille in CL on Tuesday 5/11, Espanyol v Ludogorets in Europa on the Thursday and Athletico Madrid v Espanyol at the weekend. Not a massive Espanyol man just trick of the fixtures. Been to Barca and Real and wanted to see other teams. That’s effectively what was my season ticket money. The slug is not getting it!

    Just read this in The Times. Pretty interesting… will the phat terwat be forced to sell? I hope so..

    Nike has thrown the future of dozens of independent retailers into doubt by terminating their supply agreements, as the world’s most powerful sports brand takes greater control of its distribution.

    In a letter seen by The Sunday Times, Nike notified the retailers that access to its products would end in two years, stating that their way of stocking its goods was “no longer aligned” with Nike’s distribution strategy. The terminations could begin as early as next year.

    Retailers are fearful that Adidas will follow suit. The two brands dominate the industry and between them raked in about ÂŁ50bn of sales worldwide last year.

    “All those companies that built a business on the back of Nike and Adidas are toast — there’s no way they can replace that [business],” one source said.

    Nike’s cull is part of chief executive Mark Parker’s global push to reduce the number of retailers it uses, and instead funnel that business through its website and its own network of stores.

    When Nike unveiled this distribution strategy in 2017, the company’s then brand president, Trevor Edwards, warned that undifferentiated and “mediocre” retailers would not survive.

    The move will fatten Nike’s profit margins by cutting out middlemen and reducing discounting. The company’s gross margins increased to 44.7% last year. Nike and Adidas have already forbidden wholesale customers from selling their products on eBay or Amazon.

    Nike and Adidas’s practice of tightly controlling the distribution of top-tier products may come under scrutiny from the Competition & Markets Authority as part of its review in to JD Sports’ acquisition of smaller rival Footasylum, which will conclude in March.

    Sports Direct chief executive Mike Ashley’s efforts to move upmarket are being stymied by the brands refusing to supply him with their best products. Meanwhile, access to the most desirable trainers is supercharging sales at JD Sports, which grew at a rate of more than 10% in the UK and Ireland in the first half of this year.

    The expansion of Sports Direct and JD Sports has squeezed the independent sports retail sector, which is now estimated to number fewer than 1,000 businesses; 20 years ago, it stood at 6,000.

    Nike has been raising the minimum annual amount retailers need to spend to keep receiving its products, leaving many that met the target over-dependent on Nike and struggling to shift stock.

    “As soon as you’ve got in the new pink Ronaldo boots, you’ve got only 12 weeks to sell them because they do quarterly [new product] drops,” said Paul Sherratt, a consultant to the industry. “That makes it very hard to turn the stock and very hard to turn a profit.”

    Nike said the company made adjustments to its sales channels from “time to time” to “optimise distribution”.

    Credit insurers step on office suppliers
    Suppliers to Office have had their credit insurance pulled after the footwear retailer’s South African owner, Truworths, gave a downbeat assessment of its prospects.

    Insurer Euler Hermes is said to have pulled cover after Truworths acknowledged it was in talks to restructure Office’s debts, and forecast that trading would remain difficult. Office is having to pay suppliers up front, draining its cash reserves amid a downturn in trading.

    Truworths, a fashion group, was forced to write down its investment in Office by ÂŁ97m last year after the chain made a ÂŁ92m pre-tax loss in the year to June. The group bought Office for ÂŁ256m in 2015.

    Truworths restructured Office’s debt last month with a new £32.5m facility from South Africa’s Standard Bank. Despite that, one supplier said Euler Hermes would not consider reinstating cover until it sees the next set of accounts, due in 2020.

    We are all entitled to do/say things in the way WE believe is best!

    However I can see that in my efforts to get something across on something I find extremely important perhaps with the benefit of hindsight I could have made my complaint more pertinent.

    However I’ve put complaint in now on line & by email but at least I tried. 🙂
