    Match Latest Super Bees v Manure......Updates...

    MBS was too slow to be a good LB in the Championship last season so I really don’t get why anyone wants him in that role now. We literally changed to 352 and played Norgaard as a CB to turn things round from how weak we’d become in 433 with him as LB! He has the makings of a fine CB, let’s not...

    Match Latest Super Bees v Manure......Updates...

    Interesting having MBS as RCB with Ajer on the bench. I suspect we’re going to see some tactical innovations. Maybe the CBs staying back to shepherd CR7 rather than look to stride forward. Jensen to play CDM as passing outlet and high pressing from CN & VJ, Ivan and Bryan further forward. Long...

    Much like their pool of partners.

    "Vile Chants" on Train Back from Liverpool

    I always have a wry little chuckle when referred to as a lefty online for disagreeing with a knuckle dragger.

    Yes, Manchester United at home!

    I thought nobody cared about Afcon?

    Strong Rumour Brennan Johnson (Forest winger)

    And we won’t pay more than we think he’s worth. The point is they don’t know how much we’d go up to and we don’t know how much they’ll come down to. But Phil will know the former, have a better idea than any of us the latter and have persuasive arguments to help them bring their price within our...

    Arsenal Player Under Investigation for Suspect Betting Patterns on him Getting Booked

    I’m guessing this is a suspiciously high number betting all at once but maybe someone could explain what all the gambling jargon means for those of us who like football because it’s actually interesting enough to watch without betting on it.

    Tickets Newcastle (H) Members who have not been to a PL match Mon 14:00

    I think offering it for a fixture more than half our current regulars swerved in the Championship and L1 would have been a poor offer!

    Yes, Manchester United at home!

    Deeply kind offer though

    Tariqe Fosu

    It has been reported, sympathetically, that he’s not good at training (Toney said this while self-deprecatingly saying he was worse). If you went to Stoke, you’ll have seen Fosu run around very energetically but somewhat like a headless chicken entirely independently of team shape or strategy...

    The Sale of Newcastle United

    I agree they ought to have been all over the club from day one assessing all the work needed. Particularly in the not uncommon scenario of buying fairly unseen and reliant on financials and reps and warranties alone. They probably were but putting in remediation plans takes time. Hence some high...

    Strong Rumour Brennan Johnson (Forest winger)

    The price also seems high to me but whatever we pay I’ll trust the club to be happy with. I think the club is doing its usual thing of recruiting in advance rather than for immediate need. They may have taken the view we will be safe this season so have an advantage in getting next season’s...

    The Sale of Newcastle United

    Yes, site visits are very important. When I did that sort of work I’d be advising on a range of compliance things in DD. Going to a heavy manufacturing site and finding the floors clean enough to eat your dinner off and people routinely and automatically doing things in process rather than there...

    Official Cryptocurrency Partner

    I did think COP26 could have binned off all the other guff and just focused on crypto as its single big win. Few countries would have voted against as crypto’s basic rationale is to undermine governments and their sovereign powers over currency. Even major crypto mining countries who are...
