  1. For me, it’s the opposite. Our case from the start has been that their accusation is totally without merit. That would suggest we have clear and obvious proof that they have given us permission to do what we have done. I can’t imagine that would take getting on for a week to produce. Hope I’m wrong but this length of time seems to suggest that there’s definitely something there, it’s just the extent of it and how bad it is they’re arguing about. I am massively glass half empty like
  2. In the middle of a storm? When there’s gale force winds swirling round the place? When your only outlet is Adthe ‘the wardrobe’ Nuhiu? Against Reading? Yes, I’m suggesting having a go at a pass or two might be preferable to the ball coming back at you every 35 seconds or so. Only way we build confidence is to try and stay comfy on the ball. I’m not saying it’s right for every situation and don’t mind us being direct on occasion, but Saturday just looked like we’ve only got one way to play (which we unfortunately probably have)
  3. I’ve thought he needed time for a while and has been unfortunate with Fletcher being out. Saturday worried me a lot though. Having your keeper lump it long every single time into an actual gale force wind was mind boggling. In the early part of the first half, when we got it wide to Harris particularly and got the ball in, we at least looked like we carried a bit of threat. After that there was nothing. In contrast a terrible Reading side get the ball down and play a couple of passes through the middle of our non existent midfield and we’re all at sea and chasing the game. The players are obviously bang average, but at the same time we look so tactically naive and without any plan at all and that’s scary
  4. He doesn’t strike me as someone just doing it for the cash (hello Fernando) but I agree that something is going on mentally there. In a way it’s sad to watch. He looks to me like someone that knows what to do, but just can’t make the connection between brain and body any more. The first goal in the Forest game was pure instinct-no thought involved, just whip a shot in. After that you could see confidence in everything he did. Sadly, you can’t guarantee him a free goal every game to get himself going
  5. Never met her. Never heard of her (slams hand on desk)
  6. Heard similar from someone other day, thought it must be nonsense but might be gaining traction
  7. Farewell @Owlinmad you crazy, brave warrior.
  8. I think the abuse for Bruce (aboot this hoose) has been as a result of his conduct. The pretence that this has ‘come out of the blue’ and he ‘will be leaving it to the clubs’ before doing the exact opposite is what has annoyed people, totally legitimately imo. As for abuse of Newcastle, I again think that’s specific to the horrible asset stripper Mike Ashley, rather than the club, as well as the fact Bruce has clearly been tapped up. If we make an official approach for an employed manager and conduct ourselves properly, I don’t have a problem with it.
  9. Absolutely loving the fact Ashley thinks DC will budge an inch on compo. Hope the asset stripping wide boy gets milked for every single penny. And if Bruce does walk out, I hope we make him wait as long as possible before he can take up the post
  10. Wow, big shout that. Unless you’re playing the old ‘...he’ll be their head coach instead’ card?
  11. Got my hands on the Champions League trophy at the Nou Camp the other day. Only a matter of time before it’s a reality for Brucey’s boys obviously
  12. Yeah I totally agree on the point about being a premier league loanee. Looks to me to be a classic product of a premier league academy. He seems to be used to having ages on the ball and thinking players will just stand off him and watch. For me, the best players in the championship are the ones who make it seem like they’ve got ages on the ball because of how composed they are under pressure. Onomah lacks that at the moment I reckon, but maybe Bruce is the bloke to get it out of him
  13. If the question is ‘which football manager most closely resembles Mrs Doubtfire?’, then yes, yes he is. (I think he’ll be great too)
  14. Got to disagree about DC spending nothing on the ground. There are many reasons to criticise him but there’s no doubt that Hillsborough is in better shape than when he came in
