    By 8 days as well… was a really poor situation that hall and shepherd put everyone in. But I don’t think he’d be welcomed back, regardless of his perceived ability in a relegation scrap.

    Apparantly his Spanish villa is named casa st James… he used the money from his sacking to buy it haha.

    Didn’t he take his last club down? I don’t think we need Big Sam. A decent manager with half a tactical plan will do enough to get us out of the relegation scrap. We will still be in a mess come Jan as got an awful run of fixtures, but expect we will kick on from there with a new manager and...

    Fonseca has went from 7/1 to 7/4 in last few hours… all on the back of a message from a certain former no9.

    Hes more been linked in the director of football position than anything. Although I think someone from city (Wilcox I think) is being linked too. I would think Gerrard is a shoe in for liverpool 2024 when klopp goes right? Surely he at least waits until then, and if they don’t come in then he...

    Howe, favre and fonseca the shortlist according to 90mins (no idea if they’re reliable, but they are top 3 with bookies). Two of those have ‘history’ with current star players which could be a worry. Favre and ASM, and Howe and Wilson.

    Emery the name I’ve seen/heard doing the rounds most recently, and apparantly Howe has come back into consideration. I suspect they are lining up a few positions to get things set for Jan, DoF, CEO (charnley represented them at the vote the other day for gods sake), and then manager as well...

    I appreciate I’m probably far too invested to look at it rationally and balanced and see anything other than my already well established view that he’s sh… however, I do strongly stand by that opinion. In the case of us, he took a half decent team from Benitez, and made them worse in every...

    In theory we should get that from almiron on the right as a pacy winger, but he’s not really kicked on as hoped and seems to play more through the middle. But I’d love Traore, I think he’s great and Wilson would relish having him in the team.

    Very good golfer by all accounts… represented Northumbria county team I believe recently.

    He’s exciting, I went to the Leeds game and every time he got the ball fans were on their feet. His decision making and final ball could be better and his positional play at times too, but he really does attract 2/3 defenders every time he gets it, and often gets past them. Noticed the Leeds...

    It puts him towards the bottom of those who’ve made 1000 games, think Pulis has a similar record. It’s the fact he continually gets chances, his record for us is actually 27%. I understand it’s going to do for some chairman, but there’s a disconnect between how he’s lauded, and the reality of...

    He tries to play a role which has long been out-dated, dropping in front of the cbs to spray the ball up the pitch, any half decent cb can and does do that themselves now. Where we see midfielders dropping deep to help build play up, he doesn’t and isn’t dynamic enough to offer this. So he...

    He’s an awful awful manager, there is absolutely no point skirting around that. How he continually gets jobs with a win % of 35% is ridiculous, and the comments you hear like yday regarding him walking into another job just fuel the feeling amongst Newcastle fans that his chums in the media just...

    Not sure if you think MBS is the new chairman… he isn’t, but again we can go round in circles arguing that. There are accusations regarding the actual chairman also, but again as far as I am aware unproven. As for spending ~£500m. The below is from price of football: Whilst Mike Ashley is not...

    It’s not just the money, I’d agree with that. I think it’s also they were left out of the decision/boys club and that’s put a few noses out of joint. But let’s be honest, the PL had every right after the actions of some earlier this year (and the PL also followed their own policies for a...

    As a Newcastle fan I think she’s always been quite honest with us about the fact she ‘fell in love’ with the club in 2017(?) when invited to a Newcastle Liverpool game by Rafa. I don’t believe she’s ever claimed to be a life long fan, or a geordie at heart or any other nonsense you see being...

    God it’s going to be a thud back down to earth when Graeme Jones is appointed on an interim basis and then ends up seeing the season out and we finish bloody 13th!! Haha. Could you see Conte coming to a club that aren’t in CL and likely won’t be for a long time? Regardless of how much they...

    They had over £100m in debt, it was just owed to the previous owner, hence the price. The club is no where near worth £300m but he wanted his investment (£200m after shepherd and hall stung him on some loans) and the loans he’d given the club back. (He was entitled to demand it back to be fair)...
