  2. @ The people talking about Ashley and Rangers.

    Rangers are a bigger club than Newcastle with the best fans in the world and i can safely say Mike Ashley would be 100x better than the C**ts that run that club atm and 1000x better than the ones who ran it before.

    Rangers have and will always be a massive club regardless of who the owner is.

    “It’s one of the great clubs”
    Harps saying things like that is what get us being mocked for being delusional.
    Fan-base aside, we’re historically shite. Mediocre at best.

  4. @530 That’s a very limited view to take. A new perspective might help.

    Newcastle has a great and rich history despite not having won a major trophy since there were four Beatles on a Magical Mystery Tour. Fa cups and Division 1 championships are scattered throughout its history. There are personalities, milestones, upsets, resurgences, glories unbounded.

    By analogy, Great Britain has not been great on the world stage for over half a century at least, but it still has a rich and wonderful history. Greece is probably an even better example, or Iraq, Egypt.

    The thing is, greatness is not only measured in successes, but is also measured culturally, historically, economically, by the passion it inspires in the locals and its importance to the daily lives of the people in the region.

    Newcastle United is a great club for many reasons.

  5. Well said Vegas!… But I’m sure you will get shot down by the fizzy wizzy, huff and puff crew… and I intend to simply stand by and watch it happen 😯 😆 😆

  6. Yeah, they’ll find something to moan about in there. Something about me not knowing what I’m talking about because I don’t live there. Troy will claim his passion ten times mine (I know Pootle’s will be bigger).

    That post was awe inspiring 😆

    I loved it. 😆

    You aren’t such an ogre after all. 😆

    Aussie is still painting on cave walls with the aborigines and could never be as articulate as you Begas. 😆

    Well done 😆

    To the fuzzy wuzzy club from the hissy fitty club 😛

  8. 50,793 of us at sjp last neet for steve harpers testimonial.

    we are the best fans in the world by a mile & i’m proud to be one of them.

    it’s just a pity we don’t have the owner we deserve.

    get out of our club!

  9. its amazing ex players and ex legends say how we should be at the very top when some of our fans seem content at sitting in the middle with a 10yr play 🙄

  10. Mark ,Exactly ,some are content to feed off the scraps from Jabbas table when we could be fine dining with a more ambitious owner .

  11. Kim I don’t think any ones content but there’s a lot of room between that and the other extreme of the skys falling/the clubs a shambles/we’re going down/etc

  12. Kim “could be fine dining”-implies we can do to force that to happen when in reality it’s like saying we could win the lottery. Short of us all stumping up five grand each to take the club off Ashley and clear the debt and have enough left over to cover any losses made/buy a few players there’s really fuck all we can do to change our situation, and that would be an optimistic scenario in the extreme.

    I’m not sure of anyone who *wants* Ashley here, only those who try and put up with him and those that fling their toys about every other week, which would be fine if it hadn’t been done to death for the last five years.

    I never mentioned Aboriginals living in caves. I suggested you still painted in the caves with them. Don’t you dare deny you don’t ! 😀

    I’m convinced you are one anyway. 😀

  14. Newkie – done to death then grave danced on. I can’t be bothered with it anymore.

    Troy – just noticed the ad at the bottom for flights to Oz. Got any cave paints mate?

  15. Georgio-maybe we’re saving conversation for the pre match thread…I don’t know. Villa look tasty lately though but I think if we play counter attacking football against them then we have a good chance-maybe a good away game to get out of the way. No doubt people will whine that we aren’t setting out to dominate them in possession, position, passes made, shots made, tackles made blah blah but Villa are best on the counter. Contain them and hit them with the running/skill of Benny, Remy and Sissoko on the break. If we go 1-0 up they will open up for us and we might finally beat a team by a few goals 😯

    But that might be a bit optimistic of me… 😆

  16. Georgio-Aye I pretty much feel the same way. Some good football would be a welcome distraction but even if we got that we’d still have the same crap again mid week 😕

  17. Glad to see some other people are as annoyed as I am by the constant drivel on here.

    @Newkie

    that’s what Pardew tries do most of the time. 4-4-1-1 is a good counter tactic and I think suits Pardew the best.

    Does anyone think Jonas or Taylor will start?

  18. Also gotta love how Harps was meant to score but kicked it against the opposition keeper’s leg. The ref was going to get him to take it again but Harps just walked off sheepishly 😆 bless

  19. Troy 😉
    Yep, bring on the footy, Christ I’ve even taken to reading Newkies posts…dear god! 😯 😆

  20. Santii, i hope Taylor doesn’t start, the guy is a liability… Jonas frustrates to no end but he is not as prone to mistakes as Taylor..

      (Quote)

  21. Santii-at the end of the day it’s worse on every other site 😀

    I seriously hope Taylor doesn’t start, I thought he was going to prove me wrong last season but he is and always will be a complete liability/clown/elbow waving fool. Jonas shouldn’t be starting on the wing or the centre, but he is fit and if we line up 4-4-2 then he will be on the left no doubt. To be honest, it’s not as if Marv has made any real challenge for the spot lately. I’d just rather see Remy and Benny in a 451/433

  22. Bloody hell Newkie, your delivery of that joke lacked a little convict-ion.. boom boom 😯 😎
    It’s been a long day……

  23. Boom boom? Just because you’re in the fuzzy wuzzy crowd doesn’t mean you have to go all basil brush now 😆

    Don’t worry Aussie, only about 46 hours to go now. Who was it on here that said they preferred to watch England over us because it was more entertaining? I hope they were watching the Ukraine match. Jesus wept.

  24. Newkie 🙂 did you see the footage of the Armenian player taking the corner against Denmark? 😆
    If i ever had some real life footage of how i would reckon Troy would play..it would be that bit of footage.. do a search under bad corner kick…

  25. Aussie I don’t think Taylor is a bad CB just that Mbiwa is much better at it :D. Santon is our best left back and has to start there.

    Jonas is a weird one because he offers absolutely nothing going forward but can balance a midfield and allow the other players to attack. I think Sammy has done enough lately to get the nod ahead of him if we line up in a 4-4-2

    Cisse also needs to get his act together as he has been our worst player so far this season 😛
