  1. I'm still here! been celebrating the departure of Ashley since Thursday. This will be a tough game as the rest of the league will want us relegated by Christmas. The first time I saw this fixture was 1968 when we lost 1-3 to a Spurs side with Jimmy Greaves. Wyn Davies was my hero then. Born in 1956 the year after our last major domestic trophy the FA cup in 1955 I now have renewed hope of actually seeing us winning one of the big ones in my lifetime. Roll on January & stay out of the bottom 3.
  2. Does anyone have a spare ticket for the Leicester game tomorrow Friday night 12th April. I live nearby and am going with my son but we only have one ticket between us so far.

    I bet we are all gutted for poor old Catts on here.

    Tried hard and played well as usual. (tin hat on)
  5. I had written this lad off but have to say he was excellent against Everton. always involved, creative and actually tackling back leaving opponents Writhing in a heap on a couple of occasions although their play acting was outrageous. No wonder half our team was booked. If Atsu can maintain this level of performance he could stay in the side.

    Its been a while, Hello N-O I'm still here ! More mid table mediocrity this season, but no relegation

    Staying up, but no momentum to improve next year unless Ashley does the right thing and sells up.
  8. When we settle down to watch the upcoming Ashes series down under. One of the top opening batsmen we will watch was born in the North East of England and is a Newcastle United fan. Not one of the England team but surprisingly the Aussies Matt Renshaw.

    I think this lad is playing well and was particularly good at Brighton. Some of the criticism, not so much on here, is way over the top imo.
  10. "we'll talk more about Newcastle later" aye right Anyone remember Ray Stubbs one man crusade to get Cabaye retrospectively banned after the match at Brighton in 2012. He seemed to devote half the tv programme to it.
  11. Cardiff used to have seriously bad hooligan fans. Lets hope they let us celebrate, everyone behaves, and a good time is had by all.
  12. Arry will be our hero for one match only. Perfect timing to lift them against Huddersfield.
  13. Apparently since Mcgeady signed for them he has been in the best form of his life. A 50K crowd will be just nice motivation for someone like him especially if we are muted and grumbling at our own team. We need to make it hostile and uncomfortable for him and his team and get behind our own.

    A banner, seriously. We haven't even achieved promoted yet.
  15. Looking forward to Coleshill Town v South Shields FA vase semi final tomorrow as I live 20mns drive from the ground. Will have radio and earphones on following our score v Fulham at the same time of course.
  16. We had chances to win this with two thunderous shots from Shelvey and a couple also from Ritchie and Murphy. The team were set up to allow Reading plenty of possession in harmless areas without ever getting behind our rigid defence. Hence they passed it around their own half a lot with no penetration accept for a flurry immediately after the restart and also clipping the bar with the last kick of the game. Colback was a key component in holding the midfield shape, he did his job well as did Dummet at the back and neither of them got booked surprisingly. Gamez was ok but their number 12 ran pas
  17. These went 3-0 up at derby a couple of weeks ago so they are obviously quick starters.
  18. Living down here in Aston Villa territory, I'm looking forward to mingling with the locals this morning. Feeling like the fox in the chicken pen.
  19. The crowd will be prepared and expecting fair play and I would like to think the match officials follow football in which case they will be ready and expectant for that cheating baarstard Lansbury and his antics. A yellow card early on at the first sign of him feigning injury has got to be produced to keep him in check. If there is any justice we will win and he will have a miserable night he'll want to forget.
