  1. Richie he’ll need to be a miracle worker, its hard enough to work out what he’s on about here.

    Newkie does that mean that the gooner fans you know have a better eye for a good player than you and Aussie πŸ˜†

  3. its great picking up the papers with every club linked to players πŸ™„ and we’re not even mentioned.

    Still early days but I wont build up my hopes.

    We should of sacked Pardew weeks ago and brought in Kinnear like BD said.

  7. Dave-you think Saylor is better than Colo? 😯

    I knew the reality train has had a fair few crashes but I never imagined it could have affected your thinking so badly πŸ˜€

  8. Newkie when did I say Saylor was better than Colo.
    But atleast Saylor have loyalty for the club Colo is only here cause we didnt let him leave for free.
    So would you rather have a player that has no loyalty at all and would leave at the 1st chance, or would you take a decent player that loves the club that is part of them, and would put themselves on the line and are 100% loyal πŸ˜• as I know which one I would prefer

  9. DAVE joking aside freddy had people to come in with money to increase ground build hotels ect,fans forget he was nee dummy when it came to making money hes still doing it well,he always gave his managers money to spend we were always doing well in the PL twice in CL and europe his problem was choseing the wrong managers to spend the cash,and lets be honest do fans really care what the club is loseing/makeing imo they mostley care about the team they go to watch week in week out and want a decent team “they”pay for with their hard earned cash not some “billy wiz”at makeing money and talk of millions of pounds go over the head of most fans,talk of jabba saving us from a fate worse than death is crap,fat freddy even said there will always be someone who would put money into nufc and i think hes right as i said hes nee dummy when it comes to making money

  10. Dave-well it looked like you were agreeing with the arsenal fans I said I knew who rated Taylor above Colo.

    Loyalty to the club? Here we go. He gets an estimated 40k+ pw and most of the time is sat on the bench, or when he’s playing sat on his arse after someone like sessegnon gets anwhere near him. No other club would be paying such a bit part player those wages, even QPR would think twice, that is why he is still here!

    Colo didn’t leave us at the first chance, that would have been relegation surely? I was very critical of his actions in January so I’m not sure what your on about, loyalty in football is dead anyway, Colo is the better player and our only guaranteed starter at CB, it’s pretty much that simple. Would much rather we kept Colo than staylor if thats what you’re asking.

  11. I think Pardew is rubbish and I simply cant get excited about the new season with him at the helm. I don’t see anything changing. Same old tactics, same old excuses, same old boring one dimensional football.

    I would love nothing more than for Ashley to go and poach Laudrup from Swansea with the apparent disharmony. Ashley may well back his manager with money, but what does that matter when the players are given shocking tactics and played in the wrong positions. The additional games is rubbish, the players thrive on playing regularly, and certainly in Europe. What have we to offer potential signings now? No Europe, not a top half club, haven’t just finished 5th and looking to push on, we are looking to cement a top 10 place. Great.

    We aint going to attract what we need with that massive target.

    V underwhelmed and not remotely surprised that Cabs and HBA are linked away, I will be surprised if neither have left come 1st Sept

  12. Newkie who wanted to take Colo on his estimated Β£80k a week ? I can’t think of one team that was after him ❓ after the way he played before we went down I would be surprised if any championship side would have took him even without his Β£10mil tag and Β£80k a week πŸ˜‰

    The anti Shepherd crap was propaganda spewed out by the Ashley regime to make them look good.

  15. Dave-Weren’t Man city after Colo last year? There’s one team and I bet they’d be paying him a lot more than his 60-80k. Yes you’re right he was shit for that one season when he arrived, luckily he showed his quality in all the other seasons while Steven Taylor showed us he can warm Owen’s seat for only half or 1/3 the price πŸ˜†

    Staylor has been in the prem for 10 years and still seems to struggle.

  16. Don’t quite get the Colo bashing. He’s been our best player for a few years and seems pretty loyal to me. He’s been here 5 years after all. What I would ask is what would you do if your wife and kids up and moved thousands of miles away, permanently?

      (Quote)

  17. Newkie so are you agreeing with me that Colo never had the chance to leave when we got relegated ?
    The first team that came calling was San Lorenzo and he tried to jump ship without a worry about us.
    As for Saylor yeah it’s all his fault that he is injuried and would rather get paid to sit on the bench rather than play πŸ˜† if slagging A loyal player helps your case for Colo whack away πŸ˜€

  18. Georgio-Exactly. Although in response to your last bit I’d like to think I wouldn’t get myself into that position by playing too many away games πŸ˜€ I’m guessing that is what happened after all, although nowt conclusive.

  19. ICE – I know it isn’t very good. Usually I am sucked in totally by it, my wedding anniversary is 31st August so I am usually a little distracted from it! Once a year and all that!

    I think people should also just bear in mind the debt that Freddie left us with. Obviously we have debt to Ashley but the club is in a healthier financial position which cant be argued. Having said that, it isnt the be all and end all. But money doesnt play the game, and money doesnt pick the team and tactics. Our poor show has been down to the manager. Ashley does pick him, so for that he has to take blame.

  20. Dave-I see your ignoring the other points I made though, you admit that city were linked with him after they were champions? I’d say that’s a sign of quality wouldn’t you? As for not having the chance well he was still well thought of in spain/italy, he could probably have forced a move if he had wanted as players hold the power. He didn’t want to obviously, maybe he is too loyal? πŸ˜† Just because newcastle and english fans wrote him off after one season (as we often do) doesnt mean everyone in the world thought he was shit.

    Also if a player is injury prone they will get stick for it mate that’s how football works. If owen hadn’t been so injury prone he might have been a top player for us while still being an absolute c*nt. It also limits their ability. Taylor promised a lot early on, although he was never on a par with Woodgate. But look at woodgate now because of his injures..he WAS a quality player, now who would even take him in the prem? He’s at boro ffs!

    My case for Colo πŸ˜• Colo is just a better defender than Steven Taylor, its a fact. If you can’t see it then I’m not surprised you find Taylor’s clown antics so enjoyable :mrgreen:

  21. Newkie calm down not once did I say Saylor was a better player than Colo ? So why make that up

    As for Man city being after Colo yeah I seen a bit in the daily fail about that πŸ˜† do you really believe that if they wanted Colo he would be with us πŸ˜€ the only team that was properly linked with wanting Colo wanted him for free

  22. Newkie – that bit about playing away. Do we really know what went on there? Or the supposed fall out with Pardew? I’d believe the last one over the first and I think if I was a player under a manager like him sitting on an 8 year contract then I’d want to leave too. Actually, as a fan, if it wasn’t in my blood I’d leave right now.

  23. Little snippet of information lads – we have submitted a bid of Β£6m for valbuena. Joke really for a player of that class.

  24. Valbuena? Probably made up. Β£6m, 28? He has about 30 caps but I’ve not really noticed him. The Journal reckons he could be Cabaye’s replacement.

  25. Dave-just seems to be the way your angling, “I want a player who is loyal” etc etc. If Colo stayed and didn’t really give a toss about bleating to the fans but played at close to his best form for however many years he was here I wouldn’t give saylor a second thought. You just seem very upset we couldn’t sell him after relegation because he was on big wages, not too sure why you bring it up πŸ˜•

    Ah properly linked, well this is the same for Taylor then, he’s been linked with arsenal for about 6 years and they’ve never put a bid in for him, even when he was listed with less than a year on his contract! Should tell you all you need to know about his stock in the eyes of good managers πŸ˜€ Yes san lorenzo wanted him for free..as would most of the premiership teams and a fair few top sides in europe i would guess so…. πŸ˜•

    Georgio-we don’t, but why would his family move away if he had a row with Pardew πŸ˜• Unless he and Pardew were, y’know… πŸ˜†
