One thing you can say about this current crop of players we have now, regardless of whether its good enough or not, is that the players clearly care for us, the manager and each other. Everyone works hard for each other its almost alien to us we've had so many years under pardew/mcclaren/carver with squads that are full of mercenaries

Agree3 Disagree0

10 Sep 2017 23:37:24
Seems that way give it a few weeks befire we jump up and down Stoke will be a lot harder
but definitely more positive
Be hapoy man you deserve it.

11 Sep 2017 08:57:10
Agreed stoke will be very tough wouldn't be surprised if we drew, they're hard to beat and have plenty of talent going forward with Jesé, Shaqiri and choupo moting.

11 Sep 2017 10:31:29
Swansea had a few as well but they were cancelled out.

Hughes has built a team of battlers based on his own game and they will be coming for points.

Would be ideal to see Merinio and Shelvey playing with Merinio in the Perez position and some work on the training pitch with Atsu and Murphy would be a good thing.

The full backs are fine but perhaps Clark (not that he is bad) can be replaced by our recovered CB.

Seems off the pitch the team are pulling in one direction.

11 Sep 2017 17:26:02
If we're going to stick Shelvey in play him no10 imo and Merino alongside Hayden, Merino much more disciplined and far better work ethic.

11 Sep 2017 19:35:07
Yes much stronger formation which wull he needed agaunst Stoke and means Perez is in the bench.

10 Sep 2017 21:02:12
Joselu looking very good at 5mil, shows that price tag doesn't mean everything, chasing down constantly very pleasing to see.

Liverpool damn her and a decent Rafa fan as well. I would like to know from you and Ed01.
What will happen to Rafa. I have kept a agood record of the transfer window so far and you have not improved one bit this season ( I am sorry ) Rafa is a good manager and you should be lucky to have him. His teams are very hard to beat and he slowly gets his team play the way he wants to play.

Do you guys see Rafa leaving midway through the season?


{Ed001's Note - if he can get someone to pay the release clause enshrined in his contract, he will leave. He is not enjoying working with Ashley and Charnley at all. They broke their word to him and made some stupid decisions with regard to limiting the maximum amount they would spend on one player.}

Agree1 Disagree1

06 Sep 2017 11:20:08
Thanks Ed01. I feel sad it's a ground that fills in 50k people weld in week out! Rafa is a perfect solution for New Castle. He is still regarded very high across Europe and could actually bring in some good names on his own!

Do you think west ham could look into him mate?

{Ed001's Note - they have tried to get him before, so it is possible. Palace is another possible option.}

06 Sep 2017 22:20:04
Don't forget the rest of Europe
Only his family in Liverpool keeps him in the UK.

{Ed001's Note - he would prefer to stay in England to be near his family, as Montse will not go with him when he goes elsewhere and he finds that really hard being away from her.}

07 Sep 2017 16:29:13
Yes I said that.

{Ed001's Note - where did you say that?}

07 Sep 2017 19:56:52
Ed was at a meeting a week ago
An ex player told me prior Rafa is happy in UK becuse his family is settled, yet the concensus was if things go against him at Newcastle and unless a club who will allow him to manage his way and support him he will consider managing outside tge PL.

{Ed001's Note - ah ok, sorry didn't know you had already said it. His wife is a legend in Liverpool mate, she does massive amounts of work for charity with no spotlight on it at all. Lovely lady and I fully understand why he wants to be near her.}

Well that's it. IF we keep rafa. IF we stay clear of injuries. We might just survive?

Firmly installed as rekegation favourites
Some clubs relieved Ashley has no football sense and only need stay out of the other 2 drop positions.

Agree5 Disagree0

31 Aug 2017 20:05:18
Absolute joke I'm sick to death of this and I'm sure rafa is as well. Predict him to walk out within the next week.

Ashley is prepared to back Steve mcclaren with 80 million yet won't sanction a loan deal for Matt Targett for Benitez, explain that.

Also pundits now sucking up to arsenal fans saying how hard it is for them with their owners and wenger, think how we've been feeling for the last 8 years.

Sick of it.

Agree5 Disagree0

31 Aug 2017 18:22:17
Looks like Matt Targett on loan will be the only incoming. With Gayle staying after fulham withdrew their bid after we asked for cairney

Agree1 Disagree4

31 Aug 2017 18:42:46
Oh wonderful, targett deal is now off. With lazaar already gone. We will be starting this season without a recognised left back. Just sums up charnley and ashley's running of the club.

31 Aug 2017 16:30:20

Looking highly unlikely we're going to sign anyone?

It's all very quiet.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Aug 2017 13:12:17
Bid made for targett on loan with Brighton bidding for Krul on loan

Unfortunately looks like colback may be staying.

30 Aug 2017 22:20:27
Only condition I would sell Gayle for is if we get someone like remy or Shane long who will guarantee goals.

Times running out. We are currently in 9million profit I believe, there should be plenty money to spend to get 3-4 players in

Agree2 Disagree0

30 Aug 2017 18:36:31
Ashley doing his very best to get rid of benitez now like if we suffer more injuries were screwed and must have lowest net spend now proper frustrating this club wish prying for ashley to sell up all the team's were supposed to be competing with just to stay up are strengthening were not there probably won't be anymore incoming signings just outgoings

Agree5 Disagree0

29 Aug 2017 20:53:09
Lost 4 players in 3 games 2 by injury 2 by idiocy & the season has just started

The Dark Cloud of Ashley hovers over this self made by Ashley mediocre club

If some one could blow it away along with him things will be so much better

Agree6 Disagree0

25 Aug 2017 18:08:27
Riviere finally gone. The bloke was getting £45k aweek. He should have been wearing a mask. Sdj next probably on the same if not more. going to be a busy final week.

Agree5 Disagree0

25 Aug 2017 19:41:29
We hope.

26 Aug 2017 20:28:31
Happy Plunny? Happy Des?

27 Aug 2017 12:26:02
Very happy art. Team played well. with a few additions we might be alright. I'm hearing 3 will come in before deadline day. But let's face it who really knows.

27 Aug 2017 13:23:02
I'm more worried about Rafa leaving atm. He's West Ham's top target, have to do everything in our power to keep him. Really was a great atmosphere yesterday and hopefully it's something rafa will feel he just can't walk away from. He won't be adored by like he is with us with any other fans in the world.

27 Aug 2017 15:12:48
To rid the stench of Ashley will be tempting
Frredom like Koeman will be very tempting
Ashley harming Benitez's reputation will not be tolerated
He will leave however When is up to Ashley because he does not know how to handle professionals in any walk of life.

01 Sep 2017 21:08:15
I am as sick as a kangaroos ball sack lads!

24 Aug 2017 05:55:54
So much negativity around the club at the moment all down to 1 man. One of the lowest spending teams and still haven't addressed key positions, players still playing that aren't good enough/don't want to be here: Hanley, Lazaar, Saivet, Diame.

4 decent players at least are still needed. Sell up Ashley or sort this mess out before it sends us into oblivion

Agree5 Disagree1

24 Aug 2017 17:18:59
JT we deserve everthing that is coming which is a big nothing
Entrenched in the bottom 4 will pi$$ even the die hards off

Once Asley gets his grubby hands on the TV money he will run for home and sell up
There is a cancer in this club and it is terminal.

21 Aug 2017 16:50:23
Why is mitrovic not playing? Is he not what you need against a physical Huddersfield defence? . Will he be sold?

Agree6 Disagree0

21 Aug 2017 20:43:46
Exactly Why? This team could implode.

21 Aug 2017 14:12:51
The club is a absolute joke no ambition ashley s been skimming the club since he bought it no more had enough WONT be giving him my hard eared money to a fat liar everybody needs to boycott to try and force somthing anything or this club will die a slow horrible death with which is already on its way the only good thing here is the fans 40,000 fools buying up season tickets on the basis of him backing rafa did same to kevin keegan

Agree3 Disagree0

21 Aug 2017 20:46:22
Yes he did and KK still gets stick for leaving
Our problem is Ashley Full Stop.

20 Aug 2017 18:24:46
Lackluster, looked unfit, not enough desire, lack of quality. Merino looked good in spells but what an earth was he doing with Mooy's goal. So lazy.

Need some major quality coming in, don't see the point in kenedy. We need Wilshere and another CDM, left back and goalkeeper and possibly another striker but we have 3 already

Joselu should have started he made more of an impact than gayle did

Very concerning.

Agree4 Disagree0

20 Aug 2017 21:19:53
Gayle is poor leading the line and can't play on his own. Pick and dust off but lose the next 2 and fear will strike.

20 Aug 2017 15:17:51
Probly the 2 worst teams in the PL
Difference they have points we do not
Forget any positives this league is about points

Agree7 Disagree0

20 Aug 2017 17:08:57
Unless 3 or 4 quality premier league class players come in. We're doomed.!

20 Aug 2017 17:27:56
Gayle was shocking Reality will sink in after tbe next defeat
Make shift defence and no creativity spells disaster

Some decent performances but not enough.

21 Aug 2017 11:23:43
It feels like 2008.

Jose in so we will see Rafa needs mould these misfits and I think he will
The disgrace is we will not pay tve going rate fir a quality striker even Boro know it is essential and paid 10m for Assombalonga.
When you see 50m for Danny Rose being quoted and Ox Chanberlain asking 150K a week it shows hiw bad it is

Agree5 Disagree0

16 Aug 2017 11:18:57
Assombalonga £10m. I wouldn't have been happy if we had paid that for him mind art.

16 Aug 2017 15:51:48
They actually are paying 14m.

19 Aug 2017 19:38:30
He is not worth 6m but they believe he is Rodriguez would have been a good signing for us.

Players refusing to come to Ashley's Newcastle and we will see a few more turn us down
But Rafa will sign one or two more and then we try and survive

Only good news is Ashley may sell BUT if by a miracle Rafa gets some results tbe lure of the TV money may well change his mind.
