  1. Find this a tad disappointing since you were the one that suggested I hoy my dubious figures into a blog ten years back. Keep on keeping on, man. It's fair enough tbh. I cringe at anything I wrote more than a week myself

    [stu's Dad] Stuart will love this, looks like he’s got a better turnout than Sunderland have had for the last 6 months. Before Tracey goes through Stuart’s life with you, I’d like to share something that I read in the racing post many years ago. Death thinks a lot of itself without good reason, It takes life but can’t subtract from it. It can’t touch that which came before. It comes but once, and in an instance is gone. Life is the thing, the stuff that endures. When you hear Elvis Presley or David Bowie, your first thought is of the songs and the performances, when you s

    Thanks so much. Really appreciate it. Was a lush day. There was over £500 donated and I got the cash in an envelope at the end so I'll be dropping it off with the young carers this week. If anyone wants to add to it, you can on PayPal, I'm [email protected] Alternatively, young carers are a subsidiary of south Tyneside TEN who are a registered charity you can donate to online. I'm going to hoy up the humanists notes from the day because stu never told people the shit he'd gone through and how amazing he was at dealing with it...
  5. I don't think I ever apologised to everyone on here that I ever told Pardew was about the limit of who Ashley was capable of appointing for us. I know I eventually became Terminator 2 and fought the good fight when it became totally intolerable, but Jesus Wept. Thank the lord that Rafa approached us and saved the fat fuck from himself (and Carver/McClaren).

    Morning all, sorry to return only to whore myself, but some might find this useful. Sick of there not being any app or twitter account that will push a notification to my phone just for the main nufc related news (team lineups, goals, completed transfers and when tickets are on sale) without a load of other content getting pushed at me. So I'm playing with doing my own - @NUFCalerts Follow and set up mobile notifications if you want instant alerts for all of the above... as long as I have a data connection and get the club notifications in the first place
  7. Done an article on how the stats show Benitez is already second only to Keegan and Robson in the pantheon of Premier League era NUFC managers... http://www.themag.co.uk/2016/09/rafa-benitez-gaining-kevin-keegan-sir-bobby-elo-ratings-newcastle-united/
  8. Did an article for the TF summer special on how Ashley's increased ticket prices without anyone realising https://t.co/QLLRd7VsvX
  9. I've had a couple of articles in the Chronicle but nowt on the finances. I think they try not to go off piste on the accounts. They'll cover the points raised in each set of accounts and repeat the club talking points, but when it comes to building an overall pattern and damning the club for it, I think they don't have the accountancy experts they would like to be comfortable going to print on it. Not that I'm an expert, but that's the point, they can't have my wild accusations being printed without covering their arse with an expensive expert to double check all the numbers. I miss
  10. Under-reported issues raised by the accounts... http://www.themag.co.uk/2016/04/newcastle-united-accounts-questions-contradictions-omissions/
  11. The bit in bold is interesting. Not sure why the Telegraph are claiming that as some sort of inside track. The Mag reported on the statement in the accounts last week that said SD will now pay for promotion. http://www.themag.co.uk/2016/04/breaking-news-sports-direct-will-now-pay-advertising-newcastle-united/
  12. I've done some complicated sums and worked out the chances of each option. 1. Relegated, he walks (90%) 2. Relegated, he wants to stay, Ashley gets rid (5%) 3. We stop up, Ashley pisses him off by listening to the footballing acumen of messrs Charnley & Moncur, he walks (4%) 4. We stop up, he stays, everyone is happy and we climb the league (1%)

  15. https://twitter.com/bigchrisholt/status/718025153129619456 Outside of a couple of peaks, there's no point in 4 years that we look like we'd accrue enough points to stop up. That said, if Pardew could put runs like that together, than Benitez can.
