90 points have been enough to get promotion for the last 4 seasons ( I know we can't rely on it) on that basis we need 28 points from 17 games that's just over 1.5 points per game we are currently recording over 2 points per game so at the moment we are on course HWTL


1.) 07 Feb 2017 19:58:12
That's OK then and probably exactly what Ashley said to Rafa
Proof is in the pudding and injuries might just take their toll.



30 Dec 2015 19:59:19
when does the transfer window open.


{Ed001's Note - 2nd of Jan.}



17 Jul 2015 17:17:23
why is it we are always:
keeping up to speed with
looking at
interested in
when other teams buy, I can see Villa putting in a bid for Charlie Austin and Roma/chelsea for Mitrovic
and we will be left with Carlton Bent and Darren Cole


{Ed002's Note - NU made offers for both players - as did the clubs you mention. It is just the same, I am not sure why you don't understand that - are you a Liverpool supporter?}

1.) 17 Jul 2015 17:36:27
Time Newcastle do not have time
Ashley has created a 2nd rate club and players
do not want to buy into the Circus.

The people trying to buy players are amateurs
After the next 2 friendlies we will see the panic start

2.) 17 Jul 2015 19:06:45
Ed when did Newcastle put in a bid for Austin

{Ed002's Note - A couple of days ago - Wednesday I think - but it was not accepted.}

3.) 18 Jul 2015 10:17:16
how large was the bid? did it surpass Leicester's £12m?
Why has it not been reported in media? Surely QPR would leak this info to try and start an auction for the player.

{Ed002's Note - The bid, like the one from Leicester was not accepted and QPR has stated there have been no acceptable bids. "Leaking" things to the press do not get auctions going - it is simply not how things work. I expect a second bid from Newcastle but I am not so sure the player will be making an early decision.}

4.) 19 Jul 2015 23:19:16
apparently the initial bid was 10m up front with add ons for appearances. Concerns on the injury front but also a misplaced sense of leverage. The club can't understand why the price is so high when QPR have been relegated and Austin can leave for free in 2016. QPR rightly believe Austins goals can help get straight back up, meaning they will benefit from the 80 tv revenue.

This deal won't happen and charnley needs to focus on other targets.

hope we don't spend too much time on Mitrovic (love to have him signed) and miss out on centre backs where we are really weak


1.) 14 Jul 2015 17:58:25
According to the Belgian media we've given him a 48 hour ultimatum on his decision. It seems to be his dad/agent who are holding up a move probably hoping Roma or Porto (neither team is willing to meet or beat the fee we've apparently agreed with Anderlecht) will try for him.



28 Jun 2015 23:58:00
really hope we don't go for Dowling


1.) 29 Jun 2015 08:40:35

{Ed001's Note - I think I would be far more worried about signing Father Dowling if Kinnear was still at the club.}

2.) 29 Jun 2015 10:38:32
Did you go to St Catherines Ed?

I notice we haven't been in the except for selling players recently.

Either something big is happening or nothing at all. fans forum in a week, what's the odds on it being postponed?

{Ed001's Note - Father Dowling was a TV show mate, it cropped up when I was looking at putting together an article for our TV chat site. It had the dad out of Happy Days as the priest.}

3.) 29 Jun 2015 17:55:30
I wouldn't actually mind Downing too much. Always putting a shift in, getting up and down the wing. He's got a great delivery, which is what we've been missing. However I'd pay max £5m

4.) 30 Jun 2015 10:33:51
would he sign for us?

5.) 02 Jul 2015 09:13:06
Tom Boswell I think his name was Ed, or Howard Cunningham to most :-).
Downing is probably the most over bought and over priced player I can remember, what did Kenny Pay for him 18 or 20 million?
He makes Falco's season at utd look like good business

{Ed001's Note - that's him G62. I should have known you would know.}

6.) 03 Jul 2015 00:33:44
Its an age thing Ed :-( happy days was big in the late 70s early 80s.

how do people think Shelvey will do in the championship.


1.) 30 Jun 2016 07:22:02
If RB gets inside Shelvey's head he will do well
I hear Townsend Sissisko Ginny ( all foregone conclusionns) are leaving and Janmatt Krull Perez snd Mitro agents looking for new cllubs, and with Collo Cabella and Thurvin all moving on there is a windfall of money which has been promised to Rafa.

Let's see because MA has a habit of wanting his cut.

2.) 01 Jul 2016 00:46:00
I wouldn't be upset to see them all go if we can replace them with guys like Ritchie. I would much rather see a group of hard working grafters playing as a team. Mitro is a liability but he could be good in the championship.

3.) 02 Jul 2016 13:45:59
Problem is Des you will not see much Newcastle football this season.



08 Jun 2016 19:57:38
OK let's get this banter page rolling again. Rafa the Gaffa comments. can't wait for the new season to begin.




10 Jan 2016 14:27:04
Tovey has been sitting on the bench for a few weeks but doesn't get the nod, cup tie 1 0 down havnt scored for weeks why not throw him on for 10-15 mins, Mc Laren please do something different we can't do any worse than lose.


1.) 10 Jan 2016 20:15:28
Yep. Things so obvious to the fans.



06 Oct 2015 12:20:29
anyone know why Bigirmana is playing ok for the reserves but people like Goufran and Obertan get picked before him, Bigi might not be top prem but if he is worse than those two he should be transferred to the mackems


1.) 12 Dec 2015 11:59:54
Collo should not be playing he has a good game every so often but generally he has been very poor this season.



30 Aug 2015 15:21:44
we can not keep playing anita and colback in the same team MacL has to change the system we need to put more width to our game


1.) 30 Aug 2015 17:31:58
Yep spot on

2.) 31 Aug 2015 02:21:31
Agree although I I don't mind that formation against top teams as we do need to keep it tighter. But we should be showing more directness against teams when we attack.

Bit concerned about mitrovics discipline. although our defence looks like it is coming together.

Our only two goals have cone from crosses so when we do get wide we have the ability to score.
