Reminder: Enter our Fantasy Football competition and win £100.

Enter now!
With the new Premier League season due to start tomorrow I thought that it was perhaps a good idea to mention our Fantasy Football competition again.

For those that have already entered into the NUFC blog Fantasy Football competition, you have until 11:30am (UK time) tomorrow to submit your team and get it all sorted for this weeks round of games. For those who haven’t entered you also have until 11:30am to sort your team out and enter the competition. Details of how to do just that can be found here.

I guess you’ll want to know about prizes? Well basically you can win a £100 Toon shopping spree where we will get you loads of Newcastle goodies from the club and send them through. I have been asked about just offering the cash, but after a brief dialogue with the UK Gambling Commission it would appear that I would need some form of license to enable the site to offer cash prizes hence why we are offering goods instead. Other sites who are offering purely cash prizes should be made aware that they are watching!

So for a bit of fun, or for a chance of winning yourself loads of Toon goodies, why not enter and give it a go? It costs nowt so what do you have to lose? Nothing. Just bear in mind that you must be a registered user with this site to be in with a chance of actually winning something.

Talk the talk, now walk the walk! Be a manager.

  3. Congrats for your 900th article, toonsy.

    Here’s to another 900 without Bobby and his bull**** bus! 😀


  4. And here comes the relentless train analogies and subtle put downs coupled with the ‘I’m just telling it how it is’ statements. *sigh*


  5. Noooooooooooooo!!!

    At least let the little gob****e sweat for a few days.

    Howay man Toonsy. Can you really be arsed with reading a 100 different ways of saying “I told you so” if we don’t get the result against Arsenal?

  8. to all of you 14yr olds out there, try really hard to understand…

    Newcastle are still talking to PSV Eindhoven over the possibility of acquiring Erik Pieters, while Pardew insists there are also “one or two” other options he is considering.

    However, he will be shaping his team up during training this morning without a new face in his defence and is pondering whether to field Steven Taylor or Danny Simpson out of position. Ryan Taylor or Jonas Gutierrez provide alternatives.

    Despite limited options, though, Pardew is adamant that Newcastle had to sell a highly-valued player who would be within his rights to leave for nothing at the end of his contract next summer.

    “I would be asking why we hadn’t got a left-back in earlier (if I was a fan),” said Pardew. “The difference was, if Jose had signed, we would have ended up with two very, very expensive left-backs and that’s something we couldn’t afford when we’re trying to get the best possible side.

    “We also need that money in other areas and of course we haven’t got the striker over the line yet. It all has to be within a structure. It’s difficult for fans – you try telling a 14-year-old who’s passionate about the game why Enrique has gone, he can’t understand that.

    “I understand a big bulk of our fans just wanting our best players wanting to stay here – it doesn’t always work like that unfortunately. We have a back up plan in place.

    “You don’t want your best players to leave, but we were vulnerable. We offered him a deal and he didn’t want to sign it so we had nowhere to go.”

    Pieters, 23, remains the favourite to replace Enrique at St James’ Park, but PSV are adamant their player does not leave the Eredivisie for less than £8m.

    Pardew insists he will be given the funds to spend before the end of the month, with the £6m-plus he is due to receive from the sale of Enrique topping up the budget he already had earmarked for a replacement and a striker.

    With no progress on his search for a new forward, despite handing the board a list of targets to look at earlier in the week, Pardew was again faced with a familiar topic yesterday: Joey Barton.

    He has been training with the squad this week after holding clear the air talks with Pardew. The midfielder, however, is by no means certain to be involved against the Gunners.

    With uncertainty surrounding his future, the Newcastle manager is keen to have another meeting with Barton before the season starts to gain an insight into how the player feels.

    “His crime to me wasn’t that great and I’m big enough to look him in the eye and say by the same token I want the same back from you,” said Pardew, who had certain decisions questioned by Barton in the dressing room at Elland Road after a pre-season friendly.

    “If you’re (Barton) going to stay I need to hear that you’re going to stay and that’s it. It’s as simple as that. Only Joey will determine that. I’ve said to Joey that he won’t play for me and I won’t include him unless I think he’s pulling for us.

    “The decision in front of Joey at the moment is that there’s no contract on offer for him here – so does he take a longer contract elsewhere or does he stay and play for Newcastle and take that option later on in the season?”

    Pardew insisted Barton would be replaced if he was to leave on a free in the next few weeks.

    Given so many unwanted distractions during the summer, Pardew was satisfied to have sorted out the bonuses’ in his players contracts for the new season.

    “I made it a big priority of mine to make sure that got over the line,” said Pardew, aware of problems which existed last season when players were unhappy with the bonus scheme owner Mike Ashley had introduced. “It’s important the board and the players are going to go together. I think at any football club, that’s what you need. I think it’s important – and I don’t think it should be underestimated either


  9. TOONSY thats great,wish the toon was going half as good we would be happy,onwards and upwards eh,got some good writers to back you up now imho 😉


  10. Can’t believe all of it… Pards handed in a list of forwards (this week)!… nice to know the other list was ripped up after a succession of knockbacks and we’ve just made a new shiny laminated one… I wonder if Shane Long was on the other one or Bendnar?

    perhaps a little late to be seeking a forward. we play 2moro 🙄


  11. @richietoon

    I’m not too sure m8. When my mammy gets back from work I’ll get you your answer, I’m stuck too… ooh my brain hurts… 😳


  12. Aye I found that bit about 14-year-olds a bit patronising to be honest. Bless them.

    Some 14-year-olds have their head screwed on. I’ve met adults who are less mature than them, especially the girls.

    If there is grass on the pitch, play ball 😈

    Joke btw 😳


  13. Looks like Wenger is losing the fans. Telling them still that no one is leaving the club, while Nasri and Cesc are practically pulling on Man City and Barca tops respectively.


  14. Yeah they wont be in the squad tomorrow. I don’t know for certain as I’m not actually watching it, I’m at work being naughty and checking twitter. 😈


  15. lol If there is grass on the pitch, play ball…

    aye at 14 my brain was numb off discovering porn, in the day, b4 the tinternet, 😉 working out how to get the ‘top shelf porn mags’ from the local offy was very brain consuming. I think I actually got a paper round just to achieve this..always a perv 😯 😀


  16. Toonsy your a genius! 😆 😆

    My teams; Cech, carragher, cole, smalling, clichy
    Yaya toure, cabaye, n zog, brunt,

  17. Toonsy,

    Any way we can change our team name? I just saw its supposed to be our username on the blog after I registered… 🙄
