Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2020)

From Skysports' transfer centre: YEDLIN CLOSE TO NEWCASTLE EXIT Newcastle’s DeAndre Yedlin is close to joining Besiktas. He has a year left of his contract on Tyneside but talks are said to be over a free transfer. I'm surprised we aren't after a fee, but it does make sense with us having three rig...

We've signed a new sleeve sponsorship deal with a company you've never heard of and will probably never hear of again after the contract expires <diva>

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

There's talk of Spurs offloading Dele Alli to make way for Bale. I know Dele blows hot and cold, but he seems to have picked up massively under Mourinho. I'm not sure that's a good move... It seems to me like getting Bale is probably 50% football, 50% commercial opportunity. I don't know, they're o...

Re: Team for Tuesday - League Cup, Blackburn (H)

Aren't Blackburn in the championship? You just know Armstrong will score against us. I wouldn't rotate the side too much. I agree with three behind the striker, although would probably start Wilson if he's up for it. I would start Carroll, but after doing more or less the full game yesterday, would...

Match Thread - League Cup, Blackburn (H)

Stick or twist? I think players need gametime but we’re a little restricted in defensive personnel especially. I’d play: Gillespie Yedlin - Lascelles - Clark - Ritchie S. Longstaff - Barlaser Murphy - Almiron - Fraser Joelinton Basically changing as many players as possible to keep them fresh. If Cl...

Re: Match day thread - West Ham United v Newcastle United

Not to be all doom and gloom but I do think they were terrible and hit the bar twice and Soucek should have scored. That said we controlled the game and were deserving of the win. Hendrick had a good game but I couldn’t really work out where he was playing and f*ck me I think he’s slower than Shelv...

Re: Match day thread - West Ham United v Newcastle United

I wonder what my top 6 cash out is now? I hope this squashes some of the ridiculously negative stuff from pundits (and a few of our own fans). I know it's early days but I've seen so many predictions putting us in the bottom 5. Really doubt we'll be down there much, if at all, this season. Good res...

We’re looking decent, but we’ve been vulnerable too - those two against the crossbar are not doing my blood pressure any good.

Re: The Callum Wilson Thread

Im kinda excited by what these signings will bring out of ASM and Joelinton, I think Joelinton having quality all round him is going to ease the burden on him, at times last season it felt like he was having to do too much. I think he could thrive in a 10 role this year, and i honestly wouldn't min...

Yeah him and Max(?) Aarons both got some good plaudits last season due to the potential they showed at fullback. Obvs norwich conceded s*** loads of goals but they played wide open football from the outset like they did in the Championship (which was never going to work!). Agreed. It was really the...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2020)

If we're letting two CBs go, we need two CBs in. Unless we're committing to 4 at the back, in which case 5 should suffice. We definitely are committing to 4 at the back - hence Schar and Lejeune, who are both suited to 5 at the back, are on their way out. I think Dummett as the 5th choice CB is tot...
