Message to all NUFC ‘Blog users…

Posted on January 5th, 2011 | 106 Comments |

This is just a quick note to let you all know that due to problems with the site’s current server during very busy times, we will be migrating to a new one from around 2pm tomorrow afternoon (6th January). There shouldn’t be too much inconvenience, however there may be a fairly short period when ‘blog activity is stopped, and comments locked for a few hours or so. When this process is over, the site should be running much better, with far fewer glitches and delays during busy times.

Many thanks in advance for your patience during these changes.

  1. Surprise surprise my account gets banned just days after I said Worky was full of shit for calling Dave racist and having a go at Toonsy and Dave.

    Ur a sad little man! U on a power trip or just a closet Mackem?

    To the REAL Newcastle supporters-What a result! Fantastic team performance by our lads and sorry I ever knocked Best. Well done son!

  2. Happy night but little concern about injuries from S.Taylor,Tiote,Best and Jonas too especially Taylor and Tiote. Hopefully they got minor injury and ready for Derby match next week.

  3. well done for getting it sorted worky … must be a pain in the ar*e having tw*ts come on and give you grief :(

  4. Shrews>

    Kiss my arse. Like most of the rest of us I want to talk FOOTBALL not the crap that comes out of the gobs of idiots who use the blogs to spread shit.

    As for the tw*ts comment u and Worky can f*ck off back to Mackemland if u want to call people racist and other shit for no reason. Don’t spread shit if u don’t want people to react to it!

    If you’ve got a problem with it I’ll see u at the Gallowgate pre/post match anytime u want u stupid little prick!

  5. whats happened with the site i go away for a fortnite and everything is f#cked up. I had to register again so what happened Toonsy aswell is he away or what

  6. i was so proud of the boys tonite i just hope taylor and tiote are ok as they are big players for us.

  7. Couldn’t get on last coiuple of days had to re log on and stuff.
    Great Result….Spurs are after Leon Best as well now £60million :lol:

  8. i only sed it few days ago i dont no why Pardew wanted another striker , and west ham an stevenage might prove a turning point in Bests toon career.

    i think we should get David Bentley till the end of the season for his ability to cross and take on players give some ammo to Andy Carroll and we will have Ben Arfa back soon to cross from the left … or just put ryan taylor on the right flank he can whip in a ball and that boy can strike a ball and score few free kicks :P winger problem solved …. use simpson and perch as our right fulls

    i think we could prob sell smudge and guthrie to free up some funds … Tiote an barton can play the holding role and den nolan an gosling can be our goals from midfield. was glad to see Williamson make an appearance i rate him as our best centre half,

  9. I literally went WTF when i saw the match report this morning mentioning Best gets Hat-trick. 8O

  10. ghost – whatever gave you the impression I was referring to you … mind you if the cap fits … kn*b

  11. TheGhostofGeordieDan

    Just ignore Worky, he is decent enough most of the time but he seems to play the race card whenever he can…

    Clearly has a complex…

    I’ve been accussed of the same thing when Chuck was around, and he clearly demonstrates his – “they hate us because we black” logic, when ever he can…

    He pulled the race card when Chris Hughton was sacked too.

    Hopefully one day he’ll get over his self pity because he lets it cloud was is clearly an intellectual mind most of the time…


    Like I said. Bent scored a hatrick. Surely thats worth a blog… Some pretty decent goals in their too.
    IMO he may not score the goals Ameobi does but he looks a far more composed and accomplished player on the ball.

    Also has a bit of pace about him, and his movement off the ball offers us something different.

    I think West Ham really struggled to track him and Loverboys runs. I think Best and Carroll could form a very decent partnership if he can keep up this confidence.

  12. Batty makes sense…

    Toonsy seemed the one contributing more often than not.

    Workaholic that lad… Worky’s gona have to pull his finger out… and do some typing ;)

  13. “I think West Ham really struggled to track him and Loverboys runs”

    Much as I’d like to think yesterday was all about Best showing his true form, it must be said that Wet Spam were truly awful all over the place and especially Tomkins who gifted us three goals with some of the worst defending I’ve seen at BPL level or at least since Bramble was playing for us :)

    Undoubtedly Best’s confidence was given a boost last night so hopefully a run out against Stevenage will help even more ?

    “good luck with new server,one less headache hopefully m8”

    Thanks Ice, It should be happening soon. So if anyone can’t make any comments it means that things are locked.

  15. Anyone else noticed it’s AC’s birthday today, which he shares with the great, one & only…Bobby Shinton.

    Great win last night.
    A few interesting results too.

  16. Howdy mates!

    Holy sh!t. Leon Best bagged a hat trick on his debut start. Wtf. I’m ower the moon like!!!! I don’t think you can keep him on the bench after that. Defo needs to start a good run of games. If his form and confidence stay up, I hope Pards lets him do his thing. I’m startin’ to get a *bit* excited about the future..

    Stu- What do you think mate? You’re usually the skeptical one lol! :D

    where have my comments gone ??


    Roy, it seems that somehow you managed to post on the pre-transfer blog. I’m not sure how because I know that comments were locked as I couldn’t post myself!

    Apologies, but we’ve been moving to a new server to get shot of the dreadful response times we were getting on the old one.

    DNS transfer took longer than I anticipated on a .org but – for me at least (and anyone else who has posted here since my ‘test’ comment) – it seems to be pointing to the new blog now.

    “is it up and running now ?”

    I seemed to have been the last one to get it on the new server, and some strange things seemed to be happening very recently, but I thinks so batty.

    There should be three massive cheers for Hugh as well!

    “? wp 3.1”

    Aye batty. The “WP” stands for WordPress, the type of ‘blog this is, and 3.1 and a bit is the latest version.

  20. batty says:
    January 6, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    “right got ya”

    Might not be doing it now anyway, batty. I’m not feeling too good and I remembered that we both did some bodges to customise the site that we need to sort out.

  21. worky why havent ya put a link up for toonsy blog m8 as you have 1 for all the rest ,and hes got 1 for org on his ?

    “worky why havent ya put a link up for toonsy blog m8 as you have 1 for all the rest ,and hes got 1 for org on his ?”

    ‘Cause I’ve been deein’ this first, batty! Then we’re updating to the latest version of the ‘blog, AND I’ve been helping Toonsy with stuff like backups and CPanels along with quite a few other things as well. When all of this is over, the site is running nicely again and everyone is actually looking at the same site, rather than one in Utah and one in Scrumpyland, then we’ll strt writing ‘blogs and putting links in. Better go, I’m starvin’. Neet batty!

  23. jj,
    when did bent score a hat trick?
    Not last night, & definitely not for the Toon mate.
    Separate reality?

  24. I’m confused, is there a new blog site, is it via News-now, does it have a different tag, is there other life in the universe?

  25. kin ‘el Roy…cricket has changed a bit since my time…what’s with this gay dance they’re all doing ?

  26. @ 61 it’s called the – sprinkler dance – there’s a place in the toon called – dance city – they have a class on every tuesday night @ 8.00pm till 9.00pm teaching people how to do it m8 – bit like line dancing classes.

    it’s all the rave over here.

  27. Question part2

    I’m confused, is there a new blog site, is it via News-now, does it have a different tag, is there other life in the universe.

  28. You have to ask yourself why doesn’t Bentley figure in the Spuds team on a more regular basis ?

    IMO if he’s not good enough for them he’s certainly not for us either.

  29. “Brum reckon Larson wants to stay and he is currently negotiating a new contract”

    Odd that. Bentley is known as a right sided midfielder yet so is Larsson ?

  30. I have just discovered Twitter and there is a mine of information on there, i follow George Caulkin, Lee Ryder, Simon Bird and Pete Graves, amongst others,who are all well connected to NUFC.
    Most of you superintelligentmegahyperbeings will already be on there, just info for fellow tinternet novices who arent aware.

  31. 14m for Bently and Keane ? Good deal for Tottenham but for Brum I don’t sure. I’m just wonder how much they can spend in this transfer windows.

    But for us, I’m satisfy with our strategy in transfer market.

  32. Site Update:

    The site on the new server finally seems have trickled aroound the world now. Once again, sorry for the inconvenience and a few lost comments as a result of the very slow transfer.

    After upgrading this evening, it should be back up and running as normal in time for the Stevenage game.

    January 7, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    “Will the site be out of action again then, Worky?”

    No Stuart, the upgrade won’t affect things like the server move has and I think we’ll put that off for another day anyway just to crack on as we’ve alredy missed one match, and that was a 5-0! I’ve never known it take so long for a site to trickle around the world before and Hugh said much the same thing, and he has alot of experience of this kind of thing.

    “Well it’s all over my heed, all this server talk…”

    Well Hugh’s server’s like shite off a stick by the look of things, so there’ll be no more of that waiting, or not being able to establish a connection at all anyway. It was worth the wait in the long run.

  35. just lets give the lad time boys,it will be worth the wait ime sure,not just like buying a phone ect

  36. icedog says:
    January 7, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    “just lets give the lad time boys”

    Ice, all done now apart from a few bits of minor twiddling by Hugh and I. Site is back, there’ll be a match preview, match banter, match report and all that from first thing the morra!

  37. does any1 know any more news on larsson? I’m constantly watching ssn 4 us 2 get a good signing, or am i wishfull thinking?? Gutted about bentley going 2 birmingham as he would of been perfect with crosses 4 the big man upfront!! We desp need another striker, keane????? What do u’s think?

    “does any1 know any more news on larsson? I’m constantly watching ssn 4 us 2 get a good signing, or am i wishfull thinking??”

    Army 69, Don’t more any more about Larsson than you if you’ve been glued to Sky, but it turns out some of the older signings most people thought were shite weren’t so bad after all, we’ve just got one of the best young players in Europe permantantly for just over £5 million, another great midfielder for just over £3 million, and another one (Gosling) is coming back as well, and Carroll’s apparently worth £20 million all of a sudden so HWTL! :-)

    “great news worky well done to you and hugh looking forward to it”

    Thanks Ice. It’s especially well done to Hugh though. He’s been fantastic! His server is a cracker too!

  40. has there been any more strikers mentioned that pardew’s after? Apparently we are after whelan from stoke, no offence 2 the lad but i doubt he would ever get into the team!! Another player i would love at the club is shaun wright phillips, he isnt getn a game at city and im sure he would a perfect addition to pardues plans. Any1 agree?

    “- mellowing in old age”

    I divven’t think batty has though, Roy!<<<< maybe when a get as old as you worky ;)

  42. Army69 says:

    “has there been any more strikers mentioned that pardew’s after?”

    Just more suggestions about Bentley, Army, but he’s a winger.

  43. Wouldn’t bother with bentley, larsson or swp, personally.
    No better than what we have, squad players really, not about to lift our game.
    bentley, could work as he needs a change of club, but it would only further 1D our approach, i.e. hoof up to AC & anyhoo he seems to be scoring enough without him.
    larsson, no better than we have, half decent free kick & as above.
    swp, frustrating chicken with nee heed.

  44. Agree with CLiNT and Worky C86, if we were to sign another midfielder lets get someone like Van Bommell who might just be available.

    Anyway I’m another flu victim so this my only comment then bed.

  45. morning worky ,are you getting a link up for toonsy blog then peole could flick between blogs as he has got a link for org on his ,would be a good crack ;)
