  1. I understand the impatience but some people could do with logging off FM for a bit.
  2. Us hiring a manager to ‘give us a lift’ would’ve been a total disaster. We’re not a fundamentally decent team that have lost our way a bit and need a kick up the arse like Villa. We’re shit. The only time the core of this squad has looked good for any length of time is when it was drilled to within an inch of its life. If a Lampard or a Gerrard had landed here they’d never get another job in football.
  3. I understand why people are upset and ranging around looking for persons to blame. I do think the fundamental truth is that the years of chronic underinvestment have came back to bite us on the arse at the worst possible time, and trying to judge either the new ownership or management team on this season is mad. One or both might turn out to be shit but what’s happening right now has very little to do with them and a lot to do with what came immediately before.
  4. In fairness to Howe I don’t think there’s many managers who could come in and salvage this mess. That’s not to say he’s without fault and he doesn’t deserve scrutiny but we’ve got so many gaping holes across the squad where we lack anything approaching Premier League quality.
  5. I don’t follow any NUFC or NE football Twitter accounts for obvious reasons, yet over the last 24 hours I’ve not been able to get away from Luke Edwards because this particular piece of hair brained lib nonsense is getting repeatedly retweeted into my feed. I just want to go about my day without having to deal with this bald (in more ways than one) dickhead.
  6. I think people grossly underestimate how much of a specialist position it is. There’s a reason centre backs who are nominally pegged as being able to play defensive mid are usually absolutely shit when they do have to step in. Joe’s been a revelation in midfield but he’d be shit in a 2.
  7. Still, it’s good news about all the transfers.

    See you all at 10am next Thursday for the next one then.
  9. Could’ve had Longshit. Absolutely dreadful posting.

    We’re owned by mental cunts who want to build cities in a straight line across the desert. I don’t think it’s much of a secret we’ve money to burn.

    They signed him last summer and he’s what, six months younger than Wood? They’d be in the same year at school ffs They’re both basically 1 in 3 across their careers.

    Danny Ings cost Villa £25m.

    And yet it hasn’t because this thread is choc full of people shitting themselves in public? This woe is me culture war nonsense can fuck all the way off like. This is a forum. People can say stuff, people can respond. ‘Twas ever thus. If you have an issue with it I don’t know what to say.

    The general understanding of the value available in the transfer market is fucking abysmal on here like. I assume it’s due to years scraping around trying to sign people for a few million. £20m is absolutely the going rate for someone like Wood.

    People are allowed to point out that our fans are being dafties, and people are allowed to agree with them. It’s not tone policing. It’s basically how communication on the internet has worked for the last 30 years.

    Spot on this. We’ve got people turning their noses up at someone who has consistently scored goals in the Premier League when the sum total of our striking options for Saturday is a 19 year old charva from Whitley Bay or no one.

    You’d think they’d been asked to pony up themselves.

    We want to play FM in real life. Too much to ask?

    I think we should focus on trying to win some games, not play 4D chess with Alan Pace.

    My Burnley supporting mate is absolutely fizzing. Basically thinks they’ve given up.

    More to the point in recent years we’ve spent the same amount on Willock, Miggy and twice as much on Joelinton.

    He isn’t some foreign lad we know fuck all about or a big name who has massively underwhelmed at a Champions League club. As a result he doesn’t align with the picture postcard view of how this takeover was meant to play out and must be shit.

    I don’t know what planet everyone is on, but £20m for a striker who consistently scores double figures in the Premier League is dangerously reasonable. Ings cost £25m last season.

    Fucking hell, the reaction on here you’d think we were beating off 20 plus goal a season strikers with a shitty stick
