  1. Shelvey is an absolute knacker! When will he learn to keep his anger in check. I’ve saw it before at Lpool etc and just recently when he kicked out @forest

    He has the potential to be a real leader, a bit like J Barton, but he also seems to have his hot-headedness . Hopefully it can be forgotten about if we can march on without him, if we lose points because of his absence, he will be blamed by many

  2. how true is this???
    A Chinese consortium are in advanced talks to take over Newcastle United.and willing to spend 810 mil which buying the club and spending on players,or is it rubbish?? mind they are spending a lot on football lately

  3. Personally I believe what Shelvey and the club have said. The uncertainty is what needed avoiding as it would have been unsettling for everyone, players, fans and management.
    The whole affair is bollocks and I won’t hold anything against the guy and have little respect for those that do. The FA is notoriously stupid in these things.

  4. Icedog please, please dont get my hopes up mate. You know I want rid of Ashley that has never changed despite Rafa Benitez joining the club. Ashley will want 400 million easy so I doubt its true.

    it might happen mate you never know but Rafa would stay with the promise of a lot of cash to spend

  6. STEM 400 mil is nothing to them mate they have cash to burn some how,they been trying to get messie would give him 100mil for two year contract,thats just for one player,bloody madness

  7. Icedog the scum’s up for sale mate. I’m getting nervous it’s more likely to be them. Ashley ambition isn’t really ambition in my eyes.

  8. Well the Chinese have just agreed a £60m deal for Oscar by the looks of it.

    I’m no fan of Ashley that’s for sure, but I’m a little apprehensive of change just as we have found a bit of stability.
    I think Ashley would sell us tomorrow at the right price & it’s no secret the Chinese could and probably would meet that.
    Ashley made his billions with opportune deals and this would certainly be one.

    Can’t say I like the idea of this Chinese takeover of the PL mind.

    Do we really want Chinese owners? I’d be careful what we wish for. Things are just starting to go right.

    Sham – that’s my feeling on it mate. Now Ashley has stepped right away and left the running of the club to Charnley – and Charnley woke up and smelt the coffee – things are going much better.

    We go up & I see Rafa staying a long time as he will have the running of the club – but new owners may start interfering and put Rafa off.

  10. Ice, I read the ruling. Shelvey called the Wolves player a prIck or a [email protected] We can rule that one out for punishment as Jamie Vardy was clearly seen on TV calling a Ref a Fckn bald C2nt and got nothing. What remains is that Shelvey called the player an Arab and whether that is racist or offensive. It probably is in this context, and it looks likely that he did say it after reading the evidence.

    I am not sure how Shelvey knew the guy was Moroccan though. I had never heard of him but then again I don’t have to play against him.

    imo the whole show stinks,lets just hope we can get but without him,hes back to play against Hoots

  12. I still don’t get why Sam Allardyce prepared a dossier on Crystal Palace – their games, players and his proposed transfer targets. This had supposedly been seen by the owners before Pards was sacked. Did he do it of his own volition or was he asked to do so?

      (Quote)

  13. If Allardyce went to the Palace owners trying to undermine Pardew and putting himself forward then that makes him even more of a snake than the Telegraph interview and his shenanigans trying to get players to sign with his Agent who was giving kickbacks to his son.

  14. So Shelvey bit and used racist language. Not the end of the world, probably does not mean he is racist – but he reacted in the wrong way and deserves to be punished. What grates on me is the fact he has lied throughout about it. What’s done is done but he needs to grow up now and be the kind of player we know he can be if he could just keep his mind focused and his mouth in check.

  15. I know this may bore some people on here but it does concern 2 ex-NUFC managers. According to the Mail, Allardyce playing dirty again:

    “The former England manager has been on Palace’s radar for over a month as the club’s shareholders pondered Pardew’s position given their poor start to the season.

    Indeed, Sportsmail can reveal that Americans Josh Harris and David Blitzer — joint majority shareholders with chairman Steve Parish — were sent a dossier from Allardyce including detailed statistics of the club’s squad and season so far. ”

  16. If he was asked to prepare the dossier, the honourable thing to do would be to prepare it and say that they have a Manager in place who he respects and he will give them his findings if and when Pardew is relieved of his duties.

  17. Now that I think about it, Palace basically tapped up Pardew when he was with us and that was before the Yanks even invested. Obviously, I had no complaints about them taking Pardew but I think they were in talks with him without permission.

  19. It’s mad to think some fans are starting to warm to Ashley. Me too.. but I agree with stem, he’s a time bomb . We have been awful under Ashley, we’re in the championship ffs….but times are changing, slowly.

    My only concern is IF we get promoted, how long will Rafa hang around with limited funds and interference from Charnley, selling our best players…hmmm I’d quite like to see some real investment from a Chinese consortium myself

  20. It might not fit in with the ultra PC world but in my opinion calling someone an Arab really ain’t the end of the world and really doesn’t deserve even a mention let alone a 5 match ban. Personally I think it’s utter madness!

  21. Stuart: I do not know where the line is drawn anymore. I mentioned before, what if he was Greek and Jonjo said you Greek [email protected], is that racist?

    Anyway, I think this tapping up is a big problem. It happens all of the time with players and is supposed to be against the FA and FIFA rules. Now it seems to be happening with Managers. And Big Fat Sam was just fired for pushing the envelope on FA rules and now he completes a dossier angling for the job of a Manager who is still employed. That can’t be right, whether he was asked to do it or not and you think the fat oaf would know better after he just lost his dream job. Again, I cannot see why the press are not asking questions.

    I know I am in a minority of one here in thinking it is a problem (maybe 2 with Ice) but I do not see how the ruling bodies can set these rules and then flagrantly turn a blind eye it when they are ignored or broken.

  23. So what was the P word Shelvey used? Paki? if so, said in an aggressive way and a derogatory way…so yeah, id say its racist.

  24. Peasant. A really stupid term that it appears footballers use when they are making tons of money and their opponent isn’t in their wage bracket. Rather pathetic really.

  25. Eric, the average English footy player isn’t exactly a rocket scientist, what do you expect ?

  26. No one knows what the FA are going to do. Shelvey kicked out at the Forest player on camera, in retaliation but nevertheless he still kicked out. The FA then rescind his three game ban. Then there is a claim made that he has said something but the referee did not hear or see anything, no camera or microphone picked anything up and there is no evidence. If it was a court then it probably wouldn’t even be taken up by the prosecution, for lack of evidence. Yet the FA find him guilty and give him a three game ban and £100,000 fine. I can only think he is guilty and does not want to appeal, otherwise he could surely take the FA to a real court with his legal representatives. The FA are an absolute farce and a law unto themselves.

  30. Merry Chriatmas all 🎄
    Just about to go to bed, nicely half cut and standing by for the kids bouncing on my bed at some ungodly hour expecting at least 3 thousand presents apiece. Joyous!

    Sharpy, fortunately I got Christmas off this year, but know the feeling with 24-hour shift work only too well. I hope you still get some quality time with your family and the shift goes quick.

    Ho Ho Ho! 🎅
