  1. I remember checking Cisse to get more goals than Ba for the remainder of the season in a poll here. A bold move!

  2. Excellent goals. Feel bad for Ba though. I could see him wanting away just to get out from underneath Cisse’s shadow. Hope he stays though. Though if we’re gonna flog him, this is the season to do it.

    “I remember checking Cisse to get more goals than Ba for the remainder of the season”

    So did I after watching him at Freiburg for a few months, maze but I had ny doubts. Ba is actually a more complete forward, Cisse is a pure assassin and I thought that Ba would work in support of Cisse, holding up for him and such. Now, with this new 4-3-3 carry on from the Silver Supremo, it makes it even more so as Cisse was always going to be the spearhead.

  4. JPR Williams, JJ Williams, Barry John, Phil Bennett and that big lad that plays for them now will be very upset.

  5. I think he’s on his way, probably to PSG, who have more money than god.
    Talking bout Ba., plus i’m not so sure the combo. of he and Cisse is working, Shola so far has linked up better as the second striker.
    Not that i particularly like the two striker lineup, would prefer two fast goalscoring wingers along with the lone striker in a 4-3-3 lineup.
    I believe Tiote is on the fence, would like to go to Chelsea, but is hedging his bet in case we make it to the Champions league.
    I think the club would like to make a killing on selling him, in order to finance replacements.
    Between he and Ba should bring in 27m., which could help bring in some talent.

    “JPR Williams, JJ Williams, Barry John, Phil Bennett and that big lad that plays for them now will be very upset.”

    CZJ’s from Swansea, GS. I think some of those Rugby players are from the other place, and they probably think footballers are all big girl’s blouses anyway! :-)

    “You mean Cardiff worky? Still Wales though.”

    That’s a bit like saying Newcastle and Blunderland are all the same place, GS!

    “No it’s not.

    The Welsh have a kindred spirit thing going on.

    The unwashed are the unwashed.”

    It’s no different to Tyne and Wear, they both regard each other as hated rivals usually, GS. Read the bit about the “Battle of Ninian Park.” They’re a pretty fierce lot on both sides.

    It’s good to see you back on here anyway, GS!

  9. I don’t have anything against people from Sunderland. I have never even been there except to watch a pantomime at the Empire – or was it the Stadium of Light?

    “Stayed away because that other site got on my nerves and I know they keep track of your site.”

    Eh? I don’t understand, GS?

    “don’t want to get into it. It was the Toonsy site and his hangers on that annoyed me.”

    GS, that doesn’t have anything to do with this site though.

  12. But, back to football.

    We have a shot at Europe if the stars allign. Imagine that in the dark days of Sam Allerdyce?

    And also, wasn’t it great to beat Dalglish – the man who dismantled, wrecked and fudge pushed a great team?

  13. GS
    That what you think ?
    Fergusonesque ?
    When did Man U. ever concede over 70% possession to anyone, not even the renown Barcelona.
    We lucked out to-day as Swansea had not only the majority of possession, but scoring opportunities also,
    their finishing thank goodness, was just awfull, but they, for the most part, played us off the park.

  14. Chuck, I have rose tinted glasses on when it comes to NUFC.

    We’ve won nowt in 50 years but we are stil MAGnificent.

  15. Great result today. Special mentions to Jonas and Perchinio who both showed great concentration in their unfamiliar roles. As for Cisse what can you say about that magical goal ?

    Shame about the Ba substitution but was it such a surprise bearing in mind the Pardwho quotes this week. Maybe the answer is to leave him on the bench and play Obertan (if he recovers from whatever it is that ails him) in tandem with HBA and Cisse up front ?

    One thing you cannot dispute from these recent performances is the balance of the side is much better and a “contributor” out on the left would just about tie things up.

  16. Hi Lads!

    Sorry I haven’t had much to say today – I’m busy writing the match report for the blog. Should be posted sometime tonight!

    Right, I’d better get back to it then!!

  17. Yeah dont forget to mention the clean sheet UTD111 and the fans who had a great day out !

  18. UTD111
    Guess i can go and have a coupla Amstels then, getting close to that time, read about what i just watched later.
    Hope you get it right, be honest now!

    “Bah, humbug”

    Think you’ll find its Ba and it was Hoffenheim not Hamburg ! Steer clear of the crystal meth you know its not good for you :)

  20. Not sure why there’s so much hand-wringing over Ba.

    1. Mark my words, he will find scoring form again before the end of the season.
    2. He and Cisse are supposed to be buddies, no? Surely Ba will wish his friend nothing but success and will understand they can’t necessarily be on form at the same time.
    3. Speaking of form, I think Ba has continued to play well and if it weren’t for quality goalkeeping he’d have a couple more since he came back from Africa. He can play that role on the left. That’s where he played at WHU.

    What, you didn’t really plan on him scoring 30 on the season, did you? I’d still love to hold on to him rather than rolling the dice-especially if we’re in Europe. That means playing time for Shola and Best either way.
