Newcastle United 3 - 3 Brentford (20/11/2021)


Recommended Posts

We didn't make a huge mistake letting him leave. If he had stayed he never would be where he is now. Sometimes a player needs a wake up call and a more permanent environment to develop, and at a lower level if necessary. Getting time on the pitch at a lower level to develop both mentally and technically is vital. Going out on loan after loan doesn't isn't the same thing either. 

 

Toney even said it himself that he thought he'd "made it" once at Newcastle. He's been given time and belief to develop, has matured and he's now playing at a much higher level. 

 

It's not as simple as "we should have kept him"..

well said, just look at the Longstaff's for the opposite example of staying at NUFC when for the past 14 years have been no progression plan from youth to 1st team!

This. Wilson is better than him. Rondon was better too.

My great grandad was a 'keeper for Liverpool in the '30s (ooh look at me, look at me) and his height was officially 5ft 8ins (was actually 6ft-ish) as a small way of messing with the opposition's plans. Could be a bit of that, or just an error

What did you make of it, Wullie? Can remember asking you a while back whether or not you would be able to turn the tap back on, so to speak, when the takeover finally happened. Any sense of getting 'the feelings' back yet? (no expectation, just genuinely curious!) 

 

Most engaged I've been in a game since the Liverpool home game under Rafa when Fabinho dived and they scored at the end. Actually didn't want us to lose, felt weird. :lol:

Not sure why Toney was going up to the fans and kissing the badge. Nobody had anything against him and everyone wished him well when he moved on.

 

The daft cunt.

Not defending him but I heard boos whenever he touched the ball. 
 

Might have prompted his reaction.
