    He is a good player, he just isn't a striker. If we had bought him for 15m and not playing him as a striker, we wouldn't have a problem with him. The problem is that he is being played as a striker. Haven't seen canny shot from him or a killer instinct.
  2. Everton vs Villa sure is boring

    Swiss ramble with his analysis of our accounts: Summary: Even though income fell by 2m and expences rose by 2.5m Newcastle still returned a very healthy ebitda (56m) and profit (41m).

  9. Aren't Man City owned my a sovereign wealth fund in part. I'm sure I read somewhere that their resources were similar to PIF (300bn odd) are just just showing Mansours wealth for dramatic effect there? Man City is 78% owned by Abu Dhabi United Group for Development and Investment (ADUG). It looks like it is a investment fund specifically for Man City and is owned by Sheik Mansour, not by Abu Dhabi. It was news to me that the ownership of Man city is similarly constructed as PCP is planning for Newcastle. 78% by Abu Dhabi group, 12% China Media Capital group and 10% Silver Lake (Americ
  10. Is anything being directed at Newcastle, isn't it just Amnesty protesting (which it has done before) and Bein sports
  11. Just started the first episode and the Donald "Edit" Charlie Methven is so much like David Brent. It is hilarious watching him talk about him self being a good leader and how the team will look up to him.
