  1. He clearly hasn't lived up to his supposed potential but my boy had some videos of him on YouTube (I know) last night & he looked decent in the clips from 3 or 4 of his clubs, albeit none of which were from his time at Fulham. Box 2 box, quite skillful, can tackle, pass, shoot, looked quite quick. Fook knows what's happened to him to drop off so much 🤔
  2. On par with the last few months of the season is at least a step in the right direction. I don't think anyone could be worse that Hendrick.
  3. Lemina price tag is now apparantly £8m so no chance he's coming here.
  4. Southampton wanted Hayden, apparently, and were prepared to use Lemina as part of a £12m swap deal.
  5. Loads of talk in the press over the last few days that we wanted Jens Cajuste, who's valued at £13m. Lemina is obviously the cheaper option. Probably zero truth in the Cajuste reports but after reading loads of swedes hyping this kid up as the next big thing signing Lemina instead is now is a bit of a damp squib. Be nice if we got both of them and Willock. 3 midfielders that can actually run would be nice.
  6. I'm sure someone mentioned on here the other day that it had been deactivated.
  7. I honestly think if we'd played Lua Lua when Bellamy got crocked we'd have racked up more points. Not saying we'd have won the league but he'd have definitely been a better replacement than either Cort or Ameobi. We just seemed to go to shit without pace up front.
  8. That's the one mate, cheers. The Mrs has asked a few times but I've never been quick enough to shazam it.
  9. Does anyone know the name of the song that's been played before kick off at quite a few of the matches, including the 2 today?
  10. I thought that might be the case when I had a quick look before. Cheers mate
  11. Was in Newcastle last week and ended up going into a shop on Northumberland Street which is next to Primark. They had a few stands at the front of the store that loads of badgeless retro football shirts made by a company called Campo. Has anyone seen these & know if they're available online anywhere?
  12. A mate of mine is a gooner and he reckons Arsenal have offered Leicester Willock and cash for James Madison.
  13. £5 free bet when you place a bet on England vs Croatia with Sky Bet.
  14. Spurs let me down on 14 fold accumulator for £1731 😡
  15. I could be wrong but didn't we want both? The alternative to Willock was Lingard. I've not seen a lot of Choudhury but I'd still prefer to see him and Joe in our midfield over Shelvey or Longstaff.
  16. Skybet have. I've been paid out £20 already.

    Get well soon
  18. https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/aston-villa-grealish-cash-newcastle-20045418 Grealish, Cash, Watkins, Traore & El Ghazi all missed training today according to this.
  19. Better than Loic for me, better attitude and more likeable. Seems to enjoy himself. Demba on top, of course. Remy was such a weird player. Had so much ability but just seems to have been forgotten as a PL player, not even sure if he achieved that much in France considering how highly regarded he was at one point. I never really trusted him after he turned us down to go to QPR, and think that will always colour my view of him. Just seemed to lack any real ambition. So weird he chose QPR given he genuinely had a team full of French lads who could help him settle, not saying they would
  20. I watched a few videos on youtube, purely because I know very little about him and can't ever recall seeing him play. He certainly looks like what you have described above. Box to box, can press, tackle, pass, likes to run with the ball, etc. The goal he scored against Liverpool reminded me a bit of the one Hamman scored for us against against Juve.

    Have you noticed the massive price increase in players when opting for a financial takeover ? Sofifa is normally bang on with everything yet when I took a £100m and £500m FT the likes of Haaland, who's listed at £44m on Sofifa, was then £80m - £85m.
  22. RLC for NUFC ? Unconfirmed reports circulating on Saturday night claimed that Newcastle were looking to secure a loan deal for Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The 24 year-old England international midfielder is predicted to make a temporary departure from Stamford Bridge in the coming days. Playing just 61 competitive minutes so far this season for Chelsea, London-born Loftus-Cheek last scored a Premier League goal in May 2019.
  23. I'm exactly the same. Watched very little football last season and I don't think I've ever seen this kid play. The only positive sign, in my eyes, is that the Premier league champions wanted to sign him. Yeah he'd have been back up to Robertson but Klopp must have seen something he liked in Lewis. I'd much rather we signed good prospects than some of the crap we're used to. Same with Wilson. Yeah he probably is better than what we have, doesn't take much, but I'd rather we signed Watkins, a young player on the up than one on the decline.
  24. He's definitely been no worse than Benteleb.
