Congratulations Go Out To The Captain – And All Is Well



Jamaal Lascelles was missing from the game yesterday when we beat Hull City 2-0 in front of a deserted St. James’ Park Stadium.

Manager Steve Bruce has explained Jamaal and his girlfriend Harpinder Rai have had their second child and he thinks it’s a boy, although he doesn’t seem that sure.

They had their first child back in September 2018 and they named him Jamari Rai.

As an aside, the meaning of Jamari in Arabic is “handsome or beautiful”.

It’s a wonder my mother didn’t name me that back in the olden days.

🙂

Girlfriend Harpinder Rai with Jamaal Lascelles

Steve Bruce was asked on nufcTV why Jamaal was missing for yesterday’s game, and if he was OK.

This is how the manager answered:

“No, Jamaal, I think everything is OK.”

“He’s had, I believe, a little boy. I believe that’s the case, a boy, a baby anyway. So I believe all is well and congratulations to him and his family.”

“The season getting really close now.” “I think we need it, I think we all need it.”

“There’s only certain training you can do, no denying though it is strange times ahead.”

“When you see an empty St James Park it is barely recognizable.”

“Something to look forward to for supporters and of course for everybody in their mental state.”

“Although by the fixture schedule, everybody will be sick to death of football when it gets started.”

“It is a crying shame that the fans can’t be here but it is the second-best thing.”

“They will be able to cheer on the lads from TV or laptop, or whatever they are using.”

“Then let’s hope the world comes back to a more good place and we can get the supporters back.”

“Because it has proved to me anyway just how much we miss them.”

Steve’s right there and hopefully, we can finish even higher in the table than we are at the moment in 13th place.

That’s where we finished last season under Rafa Benitez: it would be great to finish in the top 10 as we prepare for wealthy new owners, and will go all out for a top-six place next season.

    3 positives for me this week.

    First off it was the Government giving there seal of approval then hearing yesterday with the news from NUST and then Andrew Marr talking about us on his show.

    Best week so far for positivity because it’s normally negatives all the time but don’t people think that negativity is calming down now apart from a few idiots ie Delaney.

    Can someone tell me why people are asking that guy about the takeover or why people seem to think he knows?

    Seriously like all hes involved in is handing a recommendation or report on the issue to the PL, hes not going to be privy to any information on the takeover itself.

    Repost, missed the bus.

    Re: yesterday’s “leaked letter”conversation:

    Sorry for the slow reply on this somebody asked about that tweet about NUST attending a PL meeting and being told the takeover was going through.

    I certainly wouldn’t call this proof of anything from what I have seen. What we have currently appears to be a tweet from a journalist for NUFC 365 claiming that the NUST attended a meeting and were told the takeover was going through. That really doesn’t prove anything. I would be surprised if the EPL would even consider hosting non-essential meeting with the ongoing covid virus situation. Why would they host this meeting and let the NUST through the door then break the NDA they have been following for months? It makes no sense.

    Got a lot of time for Jamaal, great captain and not a bad CB at all. He has handled the responsibility of captain superbly considering his age at the time and the bubble which is Nufc.

    Congrats to Jamaal and Harpinda on the birth of their baby boy.

    Jail,

    I am asking how the WTO chairman would know about the status of a takeover. You said he “conformed something was going on” but I really can’t see how you’ve arrived at this conclusion.

    Jib,

    When people are unable to respond to an argument itself, that is when they tend to attack the person making the argument instead 😉

    KV,
    He was asked directly what’s happening with the piracy and takeover of Newcadtle United. He said it was confidential and a decision will be made soon. He clearly knows that their decision is tied in with a takeover of a PL club.

    Kev V,

    I posted something similar to your post yesterday. re the leak.

    It cant imagine anyone would tell NUST anything about the takeover after saying zilch for nearly 10 weeks.
    I did`nt realise the info came from Twitter, so i will definitely take that with a pinch of salt.

    I know that jail but people are commenting on it like he knows whether the takeover is going to be blocked or not which is ridiculous.

    Jail,

    I don’t doubt that he would be aware of the takeover rumours, but nothing he has said suggests he knows anything. He would be excluded by the NDA in the same way all of us are.
