  1. Sharpy, just skip past any Blackie post he puts up, he’ll run out of steam eventually, hopefully.
    I don’t think Ice is getting at you tbh mate, he’s just fed up with the never ending Blackie rant by Eric. I don’t quite understand why he’s using him to get at you and as I said to him earlier, I think we’ve exhausted the subject now.

  2. Kim keep the faith lass we will do it 😉
    Sharpy it is easy for others looking in to think that you shouldn’t bite etc. But when it is aimed at you it isn’t as easy biting your lip when someone is having a dig at you every few comments. I think You restraint yourself well.

    Spot on Kim I agree 100%

  4. Kim – if he’s slagging Blackie off I couldn’t give a ****. But I don’t see why I should scroll past, accept or allow someone to talk about me the way Eric has been. Nobody should just accept that man.

    I see after a 12hr barge of ****e he’s managed to wind his neck in now though.

    Dave – I agree, and I have. But his stupidity has now resulted in one of the better posters (ice) loosing patience and ducking out. I’m sure he will be back, but that’s not the point. Sham said earlier that he had been put off posting all day coz of the way Eric was going on as well – another good poster being put off.

  6. This site should be absolutely buzzing!!. 2 games to go & a really chance of winning a relegation battle – and look at the clip of it!!.

    I’ve had my fill too. I’ve had enough of the Eric show. I won’t be posting while this clown continues to dominate the site.

      (Quote)

  7. I should say I won’t be posting as often while the clown show goes on.
    I’ve been part of the site for over 7yrs and won’t let Eric force me off the site completely.

  8. JESUS FUCKING WEPT
    WTF is going on here ❓
    Eric you made your point, “Blackie is a con artist” – your opinion
    let it be.
    Kim – I understand your fears about the match, but please just keep the faith.
    For the first time in ages I honestly think we can do this. We can survive.
    We can beat villa and scum will lose to chelsea.
    After that the pressure will be too great for them.
    Howay the Lads
    😛 😛 😛 😛

  9. POLITE REMINDER:

    Hey guys,

    Swearing, profanity, abuse and meaningless posting and spam WON’T be tolerated on this site. We’ve been pretty lax to say the least on this issue in the past (free speech and all that) but seeing regular posters being driven away is the last thing we want.

    Those (whilst we don’t want point any fingers they know who they are) who are needlessly spamming the site and/or abusing other members will have their IP suspended.

    We all love ‘great banter’ as Alan Partridge would say but the bickering and needless comments on tonight’s thread is a joke. BIG game tomorrow, everyone please calm the **** down and get behind the lads.

  10. I’m off to sleep now hoping for a good day to wake up to. Talking to somebody from the football side of my family earlier, former manager and a current director, he says looking on from a far, tight but thinks we will just do it. But as has been said, please let’s keep the blog to decent banter and keep in Newcastle football related and not this other stuff, don’t want to be losing decent good posters, let’s all stick together United for staying up. Let’s hope this time next week all sorted and an enjoyable last game to look forward to

  11. OK I will stop. If I have in some way offended Icedog then I sincerely apologise. I didn’t realise I was taking it that far but now I do since so many have said so.

      (Quote)

  12. Ice: you should have just skipped my posts. It was all one sided, it was all from me. Sharpy didn’t even get involved.

    Anyway 3-1 to us.

  13. It’s good to see Beardsley Boots believing in the team again. It took me along time to believe again as well. This is actually the first time I’ve felt positive about Newcastle in a long time. I just want to dream about us staying up. How things ever got this bad in the first place is unbelievable but we always do things the hard way.

  14. But there is this other ex-bouncer, fitness guru called Brownie that I would like to say a few words about…

  15. Terry: I didn’t see that BB had gone 51% on the Stuart-O-Meter. Good. I am not superstitious so him getting back on board will not affect the result tomorrow.

    Either Rafa or Stuart are like some magical force turning doubters into believers.

      (Quote)

  16. Well I believe. Reckon Rafa will have them well drilled defensively and end of the day our lot should be playing with plenty of fight. Its not just the club that looks bad if we go down but the players too. Relegation would effect most of their careers and pay packets save 5 or 6. Their desire should easily see off Villa. Their fans will be protesting. It wont be a nice experience for Villa. They will.fold once we score. I’m backing us for 2-0 and a narrow win for Chelski and Manyoo.

  17. There is a meet up in Chicago tomorrow with Villa fans (in years gone by in England that would have been for a fight like in that Chelsea documentary, here it is just to talk football/soccer). It will be interesting to see how many Villa fans turn up. I am getting scared now that Andy Gray has predicted a win for us but luckily Paul Merson’s giant Balloon Head has gone with a draw, so there is hope still.

  18. Sham I just can’t go to 65% yet. But, I will get off the fence and go 51%. Mackems to draw. If that happens I might get on the board full tilt with Stuart.

  19. Eric – I’m at more than 51% fella
    I’m actually believing
    yes BELIEVING
    So for now 90%
    Like you, I’m also full of ****, so deal with it and be happy

  20. BB: 51% is in the belief column. I was on the fence at 50% until a few minutes ago 🙂 I said I am not superstitious but I might be about NUFC because they break my heart so often Fredo, they break my heart.

  21. BB: I just didn’t think I would upset Icedog. I am happy to upset Troy as you know 🙂

  22. If people are not super nice to me from now on I will come on here with a summary of the latest episode of Game of Thrones. I airs on Sunday night here so I can do it before your Monday night episode. You have been warned.

  23. My 73 year old mother watches Game of Thrones. I really thought it would be too violent for her. I have never given away the plot to her so fear not campers I will not do it on here.

  24. I was not even on a wind up about you know who. First time, it was the middle of the night and I was arguing with myself, I thought! And I thought Sharpy wouldn’t even mind although when I think about it, if somebody ranted on for like 50 posts about something I had brought up only in passing I might get upset as well. You live and learn.

  25. I don’t believe your poor old mom is only 73
    she must have had you when she was 55 😛 😛
    lol
    no seriously though, you’re older than me and my mam is 83.
    funny thing is she has just emigrated to canada last month.
    go figure.
    Even more bizarre, she took my great grandma over there a couple years ago for a holiday, and she was 101 at the time.

  26. You saying I am immature BB? 🙂

    You are going to have to learn how to pronounce out as ouot and end every sentence with the word ay, like the Canadians.

      (Quote)

  27. anyway you weren’t arguing with yourself, (like some demented mackem on cheesy chips and blue panda pop), because you insisted multiple times on dragging sharpy into it.
    Rant away by all means, we all do sometimes, particularly about the mismanagement of the regime and all who contribute to our shyteness, but cut the personal insults and digs etc, particularly the regulars -( Tory Boy excluded of course :wink:) –
    We all have our own opinions, right or wrong and this is the place to vent them.
    Without the posters, this blog doesn’t exist. Lets not drive each other away.
    I personally have had a rethink about many of my own opinions, based on the opinions of others.
    But I still maintain Pardew is **** and out of his depth in the EPL. Never deserved the shot he got with NUFC and I won’t be surprised when the palace board give him the big heave-ho once they have lost the FA cup final. effing gobshyte and no more.
    Crystal Palace would NOT have avoided relegation had it not been for Schteve clueless McClaren.
    and the hopeless board that appointed him.

  28. Abboout (about) as well. It is sort of like Scottish but is not quite Scottish and is almost impossible to put down in words. You have to hear it.

  29. BB: I really didn’t think Sharpy would take offense although I do admit I took it too far.

  30. I’ve never been to canada myself, so can’t comment on the lingo.
    It’s my sister who lives over there, you know, the favourite one. The one who can do no wrong. Or as my father always said, ‘the love child’
    not his of course, but in them days he could never prove it.
    Funny how she looks completely different from the rest of wor clan and an awful lot like his best mate at that time.
    It’s a funny old world.

  31. BB: I have only been to Vancouver and that is spectacular. I should really go to Toronto and Montreal.

    ha ha
    it’s not the first time you have lost your marbles,made a **** of yourself and gone on an epic rant mind, but probably the first time you have turned against fellow bloggers instead of just the regime – who obviously deserve all the abuse, hate and vitriol they get.

  33. well Tory Boy said Fatem ben arthur had a heart the size of a pee, and on that I agree.
    He won’t survive in any team that is struggling.
    When the chips are down, he disappears and puts on weight. 😯 😛

  34. I disagree about ben Arfa. I think he is the best player we have had since Shearer. In fact, I will now go on a 50 post rant about it.

  35. what the hell’s that aboat aboot about.
    someone even more anal than Tory Boy his Bro and Eric put together.
    and I’ll quote:-
    “woo hoo hoo”

  36. BB: I am not anal retentive, I am more like a dog with a bone. I think Freud is a fraud.

  37. There are 3 things that Americans think about Canadians –

    1. They pronounce the word “about” in a very strange way.

    2. They finish every sentence with the word “ay”.

    3. They leave their back doors unlocked, which an American would never do if he wanted to keep all of his stuff/stay alive.

      (Quote)

  38. Stay tuned for more Canadian pronunciation updates, Game Of Thrones spoilers and Blackie rants.

  39. That’s a really good analysis of some changes under Rafa. The bit about Cisse, I’m not so thrilled by, as I think Mitrovic does a better job laying balls off. I think Cisse is there for his ability to do something unexpected and he’s a bit more mobile than Mitrovic. But, hey, who am I to argue the point with Rafa (or Jamie Carragher). I only ever see games on telly.

    Anyway, big day today. If we don’t win, we’ll be in the you-know-what. It’s a rare enough occasion when I want EITHER ManU or Chelsea to win; it can’t have been too often an occasion in my life when I’ve wanted BOTH to win on the same day.

    Howay the lads.

  40. Well Im probably on the motorway whilst the lads battle for their lives today. Cant believe I wont ne watchung 🙁 5live for me…

    As for Benny Boy. It was the right call to cut him loose at the time imo. He was being a lazy sod and he did get fat. I give him credit for taking his wake up call and turning his career around though. It probably helped that his mate Benzema layed into him a bit and said he could have had it all if only he was willing to work for it.

    Despite how impressive he has been this season though, I will say it has been in a poor league but still he looks in canny shape and Im sure with the right attitude he can make a real go of being in a side like Barca.

    Kim how is Lew getting on?

    Not too bad Sham thanks, still full of it though, thought it was abating but yesterday he was off a bit. Think it could be a while until he’s 100% , getting so behind with jobs and appointments as he’s been home a fair while now and not likely back on Monday either. 🙄 Nevermind I’m sure the Toon will cheer us up later 😉
