  1. I used to get the urge to put my foot through the screen whenever Pardew was interviewed, mostly towards the end of his reign here, but with Bruce it's on a different level of hate altogether. I hated him before he even arrived, I was devastated when he was appointed, and I hate him even more now. Just so frustrating that 99% of us knew exactly how it would all pan out yet the idiot who owns the club thought it would be a good idea to pay Sheff Wed £3m to get him here. This. And it was less than 99% of us unfortunately.
  2. The answer cannot be anything other than Rafa Benitez.
  3. I think you either accept it or you don't, as soon as you start the discussion on morality then you begin from a losing position, as the negatives of the regime currently outweigh the positives. Trying to justify if or overtly celebrating it (please no headscarves ) is just painting us in a bad light. Is anyone justifying or celebrating human rights abuses ffs? What absolute nonsense. People are overtly celebrating the departure of the club's horrible owner to be replaced by extremely wealthy new owners. The two issues ARE separate and people will eventually have to come down off their

  8. All this post has done is just show everyone that you've never been in the chat section tbh. There's quite literally a thread on the Saudi's that's been there since 2015 and likewise the U.S thread. Plenty on here put the graft in for political parties, organisations, charities, and in QuakesMag's case has even made documentaries about this sort of stuff. You're just showing your own ignorance by assuming this has only been brought up now tbh. Again though, framing not wanting the football club to be owned by literal murders isn't a PC bollocks like. It's just not. I've been in the cha

  10. With all the injustice in the world and all the murder of innocent civilians in every war going on now (nevermind what's gone on in the past), it's the takeover of a football club that raises the alarms? Fuck off. Seriously. Until every self-righteous SOB takes it up with their MP's and governments to stop human rights abuses the world over, you can save your PC bollocks for something that actually makes a difference.
  11. The sheer number of chances he faces every game will always end up in mistakes. Fantastic goalkeeper and one of the best scouting jobs we've ever done.
  12. Fuck me what a brilliant thread and idea! Voted for Barcelona. Just started watching home to Swindon in the PL. How good was Andy Cole's hold-up play!?
  13. Formidable team and deserve the title as much as any team ever did. Hilarious that they don't go the season unbeaten though
  14. Absolutely right. A club by definition is something you are a part of and are involved in. A fan by definition is a "fanatic" of said club. We have neither. We are an entertainment product with consumers.
  15. That was a hell of a downgrade but at least under Shepherd we knew there was some kind of ambition (where's NE5?). Rafa breathed life back into the lifeless corpse that was NUFC. Sadnesstan has got it spot on actually...it was the combination of misery under McLaren, euphoria with Rafa then back down to the current status quo that's got me all fucked up. In more than the 10 years I've been on this board I never logged out. Now I barely even look.
  16. It's still the most epic of come-downs going from the elite Rafa Benitez to the way below average Steve fucking Bruce. In all my 30 years supporting this club I don't think I've ever experienced such a rollercoaster of emotions as going from elation in the Fulham game to abject depression the day Bruce signed.

    Danny Rose

    Lazy, disinterested and a bit of a pussy. Coasted through the game like he didn't want to know.
  18. Post of the fucking year this! Brilliantly said.
  19. Comparing Ki to Colback is.....
  20. He's nowhere near as odious as al pards but he's inferior even to that scumbag. What an awful decision by fat mike to appoint this cabbage
  21. Or maybe not everything is played out in the media and known to the general public? There's no doubt that Ashley is a massive prick to deal with but we don't know for certain that he won't sell at any price. Assuming the bid/deal is genuine, I'm pretty sure Staveley would know what it would take to get him to sell, and has informed these potential suitors accordingly.
  22. Definitely agree with this. Staveley has been trying for a while though. Would she really be wasting hers and the investors' time if she knew Ashley wasn't a willing seller? Maybe previous attempts have tried to get the fat cunt to lower his asking price knowing how much he's hated by the fanbase and now they've gone out to get bigger money players who can actually pay what he's asking?
  23. What happened on 15 July 2011 for this board to have the most users online ever? A quick google turns up nothing except some bollocks by al pards and something about Darlington.
  24. Bruce is as culpable as Ashley make no mistake. I hate them both equally and anyone feeling sorry for Bruce can take their "he's just wanting to manage his boyhood club" malarky and fuck right off.
