  1. yeah. newcastle should have a couple more wins by now. actually not sold on them winning today. just not getting it done in front of goal. but it is pretty surreal seeing them play positive, attacking, pressing possession based football after what we've endured for years.
  2. haaland is gonna really blossom in two years when he is at newcastle.
  3. Lee Mason told to take the week off after his failure this weekend in the palace newcastle match. a goal disallowed that would have been the winner for newcastle.
  4. a depleted toon took the wannabe champions to the wire. and regarding the comments about time-wasting, fouling and 'cheating' from some of you
  5. american pulisic to newcastle is being bandied about. a loan w option to buy I'd be interested. he's a tireless worker who would fit really well in the system howe likes to play and he can bag a goal. and we need more goal scorers. our defense will be tight all season but i worry about losing points to 1-0 and 1-1 matches.
  6. you are right about the unexpected...but it is newcastle finishing top 6!
  7. dc signing benteke is kind of wild. he is so physical he'll give defenses fits and really open things up for other attackers playing off him.
  8. I'm gonna annoy you all with some american league mls stuff. my club dc united dead bottom of the table recently got Rooney as coach. Sunday was his first match in charge. down 1 and looking destined to leave the stadium disappointed we grabbed two 90+ minute goals to win! absolutely insane!
  9. let's keep boring you all with talk about my local club dc united now coached by a guy named wayne rooney! current rumors are ravel morrison and jesse lingard coming over. the former is pretty believable. the latter would be a dream. he is the kind of attacker that would shred mls defenses. wayne has immense connections and brings immediate clout to the club when attempting to recruit players who would ordinarily laugh at coming to play at dc.
  10. rent is pretty expensive in dc. and it is funny how so many if the fans are now eating out of the front office's hands due to rooney. i will continue being very skeptical until i see them sign some players to go along with rooney's ambitions. we have a few decent players, but overall not keeping up with the rest of the league.
  11. he's now the boss for my local club. when he played for us he was exciting and electric. it was surreal to have him on our pitch. as a coach i feel he is in for a lot. ownership is cheap and turned on the previous coach quickly when he pushed too hard or questioned too much. players rebelled against being held to a European level is fitness. luckily most of the squad played w rooney when he was here as a player and has enough cachet to push these players. but if ownership doesn't open up the wallet the team in last place will stay right the fuck there, rooney or no rooney.
