  1. I have no use for Dummet even as a squad player. I think we should keep Darlow, along with Krul and having Woodman in the wings why spend money on a keeper. Gray is a good signing, but would rather have Aboubakar, Bakambu, or Dost. Also, we need to hold on to Mitro I believe that selling him at the age of 22 would be a huge mistake.


  2. Looks like not much has changed with Ashley, who lives and deals in a cut price world and obviously intends staying there, with those encouraging words above about Rafa. intending to avoid relegation sez it all.
    It has become increasingly more difficult for sides to gain access to a top ten spot, never mind
    challenging for the PL Championship, without spending vast amounts of cash (Leicester?, yeah I know, but Leicester was a one off) it appears our dear leader still believes we can buy an entire competitive side for the cost of certain single players signed by the top clubs plus in his willingness to splurge and continually misinterpret his promises in that regard.
    Even with a manager of Rafas. stature you are only as good as the players you have and looking at what we have at NUFC , plus who we are looking to sign, we need all the help we can get, just to avoid relegation for the third time.
