Remember the 5-1? Take another look!

A day to never forget!
Do you remember where you were on 31st October last year? I do, and to be honest I’ll more than likely remember where I was until the day I get buried in the earth of this godforsaken planet.

I was in the Gallowgate watching one of those games that will live with you forever.

It’s a day that I will never forget both in terms of the football and the numerous near death experiences I encountered during the game thanks to an excitable friend that I made in the crowd. Everything just clicked and the result was well deserved. Sunderland surrendered any shred of dignity they had that day. The best thing is they still haven’t earned any back yet.

What did I witness? Well quite simply, this.

What does it mean for this season ahead of the latest instalment of the Tyne-Wear derby? Not a lot really aside from a few sings and something to bait them with. This season though it’s a new start, a new page. The 5-1 will quickly be forgotten should we suffer a defeat on the banks of the River Wear. It will always be there, in the minds of many, but it will lose its kick. After all, it is in the past.

That’s why I’ve pulled the video up for one last viewing before we head into the 147th derby between Newcastle and Sunderland.

    I would imagine that’s how all our transfer deal go down.
    We probably made a written offer of 4mil for Pieters. PSV said we want


  2. Typical Pardew, couldn’t keep his gob shut, even when he was told he had to.

    Does anyone still think this guy isn’t a liability to the club and a complete nobber?


  3. Six mil and we made it,clear we are no longer interested.

    The only fees we ever agree are when players are free, have buy out clauses or go in strike to leave.


  4. JJ – It’s a canny insulting offer, our board must be the laughing stock of football when we try and buy players! 🙄

    I can bet Pardew probably wasn’t told to keep his mouth shut. He was probably as unaware of the terms behind the deal as he is of the progress of any other deal done by NUFC. Totally in the dark.

    So no, I think its refreshing to have a manager that wants to communicate, but he is made to look a fool by a board that tells him not much more than they tell us.


  6. Well pissed off ,come back from a weeks holiday expecting Pieters signed and hoping for a new striker as well and nothing has happened . 😡 where do we go from here , surely they will get someone in before the window slams shut ffs . At least we will beat the tramps tomorrow even with Raylor as lb . My prediction 3-1 Shola , Cabaye and a late goal from substitute sammy Abeobi

    In short we offered 100k for Elliot. During discussions Charlton specifically asked not to let any word of negociations be leaked to the press.

    The 100k bid was said to be Newcastles best and final offer, but was rejected in minutes and seen as laughable.

    Pardew then admitted to placing a bid for the player in a press conference. And now they want to take it up with the FA.


  8. Ye Dave, funny in the sickest sense 🙁

    I’m so pissed off about it. I think its 99% blatant what is going on, again, this window.

    In fact I wrote a lengthy article which you’ll probably read later or tomorrow evening.

    But even though I know deep inside nothing will probably happen, I still hope I’ll get proved wrong in the next week.


  9. We have a video above that shows us thrashing the scum, yet everyone wants to talk about a low-ball bid for some second rate keeper 🙄 . Can’t wait for the window to end and football becomes a discussable topic again.


  10. Yohan Cabaye made more tackles than any other player in the division during the opening round of matches –

    Nice Stat like, shows he’s a complete player


  11. Egyptian U-20 striker Mohamed Salah says #NUFC want to sign him on a season long loan from Arab Contractors SC (Ahram Online). #NUFC #fb

    Salah – “Newcastle will make an official offer to sign me for one season. It’s a dream for any player to play in Premier League.” #NUFC #fb

    Who the ****..?


  12. Ignore last comment – That can’t be his wiki page. Just re read first tweet and says he an U-20 striker. Doh! 😳 😳


  13. make no mistake about it. We will release the wrath of the mackemslayer tomorrow! Hattrick for the king?????


  14. For those saying cabaye was anonymous just got this from the guardian
    • Yohan Cabaye made more tackles than any other player in the division during the opening round of matches


  15. 100,000 for a player that would replace Forster would will, I would guess, go for a lot more than that if Celtic keep him. Plus we cant keep our word. We look like total muppets


  16. Sorry-that last post was so badly written! Two things at once!

    You get the idea

    Forster will go for more than 100,000
    We lied
    We look stupid


  17. Whats the most embarrassing thing about our club at the moment, Ashley appeasers or loonies bigging up a 7 goal a year medicore journeyman with a heart the size of a split pea as a Mackemslayer?


  18. You might have been right first time with the 41 year old, We did sign Kuqi who had the agility of me nan with gout… 🙄

    Couldnt possibly forget the 5-1, One of the greatest matches my eyes will ever witness and have set meself a staple diet of watching the DVD eating a pot noodle in me kecks at least once a week… 😉


  19. 🙄 . I think even Pardew is seeing the light with this lot now,sorry but my frustration has turned into dismay.
    FCB ambition is to keep this club in the EPL @16th or above as a bonus.
    Rape the club of its assets 👿 👿 👿 😥
