One thought on “Toon Talk – a round-up of all the day’s NUFC news and gossip – 30/01/2018

  1. Why bother to look what’s happening with the transfer window? While we have this idiot (Ashley) in charge nothing will happen same old story were buying this player that player and when it comes to it nothing! we will no doubt be relegated this season and the club will take years to recover!
