  1. I watched the Liverpool game today and I must say we are much better to watch based on this LARGE SAMPLE of one pre-season game. Brendan Rodgers was a miserable git on the sidelines, whereas Alan was the housewife’s choice in our game.

    “Brendan Rodgers was a miserable git on the sidelines, whereas Alan was the housewife’s choice in our game.”

    He’s made a bit of a pig’s ear of this Carroll thing.

  3. And on the same subject of making a pig’s ear of things, I don’t usually like to have a go at players but I don’t like this idea of Pardew and Woodman’s old Charlton ‘keeper, Rob Elliot, just waltzing in and taking over from Steve Harper, even if it’s only as a reserve. He really isn’t all that good, but he is very good mates with Woodman and Pardew.

    The commentator was right, Fenerbahce’s goal was a little bit too easy and it wasn’t the first time by any means, even though Elliot hasn’t spent that much time between the sticks, I watched him bit at Charlton and remember that Notts Forest game too.

  4. I missed the game last night as i was on the pop.but reading the posts n comments on here there seemed to be more plus’s then negatives.is that right Worky mate?

    “I missed the game last night as i was on the pop.but reading the posts n comments on here there seemed to be more plus’s then negatives.is that right Worky mate?”

    First half Fener, second half us overall, Jack, which is fair enough against a Champions League side from a big league.

    On the plus side – Good to see wor Mehdi scoring and Sameobi seems to be progressing too. Some good play generally, especially in patches of the second half with fair bit of it coming from the bairns, which is nice.

    On the minus side – As I wrote yesterday, poor Vuckic looked as rusty as hell with all his injury layoffs plus the close season, but I still think he can be a top player if he doesn’t keep getting knacked. I’ll also refer you to my comments above about teacher’s pet, Rob Elliot. I divven’t like the way Harper’s been treated, not just because he’s been a good servant of the club for many years, but most importnatly for the team, because even with his pension book and his zimmer frame, he’s a better goalkeeper IMO. I’m not saying I’m 100% certain he would have saved their goal, but I still think he would have had a better stab at it.

  6. Worky: Elliot seems short and certainly doesn’t command his area. I said a couple of weeks ago that we were short a goalie as I reckon Pardew doesn’t rate Harper.

    Krul could therefore be our most important player.

    “I reckon Pardew doesn’t rate Harper.”

    Harper’s the last of the bonus sheet rebels, GS. Whilst I may be wrong, I keep thinking there may be a bit of politics in there when it should be strictly abilty. Also, as I wrote above, Elliot’s a real teacher’s pet from back in the Charlton days with Woodman and Pardew. They’re a very cosy threesome. I’ve watched Woodman and Elliot’s goalkeeping workshop videos from the time before they joined the club.

  8. I’m surprised there hasn’t been any moaning about our lack of transfer activity. Ed’s blog is very calm. People soon forget the history of our leaving it too late and the helecoptering of Carroll and last second desperate attempt to hijack Brian Ruiz.

    There is too much love for my liking. We have a bloody hard start.

    Probably because they’re all too busy tweeting EMO :)

    Owen came up with the brilliant idea of getting people to ask him questions via Twitter. It hasn’t gone exactly as planned :)

    #askMOwen If a plane leaves at 8:53am & another at 9:32am both travelling at 532mph, at what point would you realise you’re still a bellend?

    #askMOwen as you make a habit of collecting medals you did nothing to earn, would you like my grandad’s war medals?

    #askMOwen Do you feel a great affinity with Bradley Wiggins, who has also won a championship while sitting down?

    and Zoggy and Bloke walking past SJP at 10.55pm.

    As WT has said there is so much shite coming from the club about placing bids for players yet those players clubs claim they’ve had no contact so its not hard to see how this all works.

    Remember how we unsettled poor old Maiga so much so that he went on strike then when push comes to shove Pffft “sorry mate but we dont want you !!!”

    As I’ve said before “Why is it we’ve just rewarded Carr with a new eight year contract yet we’re still no nearer unearthing any unknown gems but still allegedly trailing players we knew about in January or even last season ?”

    So I dont bother with transfer speculation any more. Fatman loves a deal and the more clubs he deals with then become aware of his “MO” and would probably sell their players to anyone but us.

    I sincerely hope he doesnt fall into the trap that the other Fat Bloke did back in 2003, thinking we had enough quality to take on another CL campaign only bringing in Bowyer on a free !

    From that close season it was a downward path from then on :(

  11. Andymac: I like the Owen tweets. Hopefully, it will dent his ego a bit, but I doubt it.

    I saw Barton sent Wiggins a personal message and also is commenting on Andy Carroll. I suppose he has a lot of free time at the moment.

  12. I thought it was Jose Enrique who had his tweetathon hijacked. Must be both.

    I don’t understand all the gloating personally, as it says more about bitterness of the people doing the gloating than anything else. I’m sure that Enrique at least doesn’t regret leaving the club for a second and Liverpool got a bargain. Even though they had a season in hell, they still won a trophy, which is something Newcastle United haven’t done in 43 years and they’re still in the same European competition we are, so we don’t have that much to gloat about anyway. As for Owen, he’s won about nine or ten trophies in his career. That’s almost as many as Newcastle United have won in the whole of their history (11).

  13. Worky @12: the Owen tweets were funny even if Andymac had just made them up himself for us on here and nobody had hijacked anybody’s tw@tter feed.

  14. And Worky: I don’t see any gloating about Liverpool anywhere on here. You are seeing stuff that is not there mate :)

  15. Last thing Worky: when I wrote “LARGE SAMPLE” in caps at my post at #1, I hoped to convey that I wasn’t being serious. I was only trying to get the replies started anyhow ;)

  16. I can understand where you are coming from Worky though. As that sillyness earlier this week made me want to ignore Blogs for a while. But, I came back on here to show that that those idiots are not worth getting upset about. The dog has made an amazing recovery, considering he is 15.

  17. Aye GS, I’m sure that Oscar Wilde would be green with envy if he was still around and reading Newcastle United blogs.

    Here’s the real Owen and Enrique Twittathons if you haven’t seen them already, and aye, Owen is a bit of a twat. I was more on my soapbox about the original Enrique one TBH. Some Geordies are more than a little delusional if they think Enrique’s losing any sleep about his move to Marseyside.

    “The dog has made an amazing recovery, considering he is 15.”

    Chuffin’ Nora! That’s great news, GS! The little fella sounds like he’s taking more drugs than I am now though. I really like Jack Russells, they remind me of myself quite a bit.

  19. Worky @17: the tweets were gentle teasing far as I could tell. Maybe they can get Tarby or Stan Boardman to help with the replies to keep the fun going. And TV just isn’t the same without Kenny Lynch. What was he famous for again?

  20. GS says:

    “And TV just isn’t the same without Kenny Lynch. What was he famous for again?”

    I think he was a bit of a popstar and songwriter originally around the early sixties, but became a kind of general “Mr Showbiz” variety type later on in the seventies and kind of famous for being famous if you know what I mean? He was a Cockney though, a barrow boy, not a bin dipper and hubcap nicker like the other two.

  21. I brought up Stan Boardman because he was one of the unfunniest “comedians” I have ever seen. Just got up there and laughed at himself so much that he couldn’t get his words out. A role model for Adam Sandler.

    Kenny Lynch was one of the Tarby golf mafia, and I honestly never knew what he had ever done. I thought he was the ’70’s version of Kim Kardashian without the giant ass, and hopefully not the sex tape.

  22. Since we’re on this subject. What about the much maligned Bernard Manning. If ever there was someone who was genuinely funny but got ripped by the PC crowd it was him. He was making jokes that were laughed at and accepted at the time when he was making them and he was given the worst kind of stick in later years. Sort of to your point about “Love they Neighbour” a while back?

  23. I looked at “newsnow” a few minutes ago and the Owen tweeting is starting to become a big story.

    “Since we’re on this subject. What about the much maligned Bernard Manning. If ever there was someone who was genuinely funny but got ripped by the PC crowd it was him.”

    The one one of his I always remember was:

    “My dad, he had a terrible war he did, a terrible war. He died at Auschwitz.

    Pause

    He fell off one of one of the watchtowers!

    Boom tish!

    Do you remember Bernard Manning singing as well? And the “Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club” with all the gang, and Colin Crompton as the compare? The good old days. :-)

  25. Gs,

    I’m sure that Chuck will enjoy all the highly politically correct badinage in this. He’ll probably have a fit! :-)
