  1. Would you take Conte at United?

    Listen your job is safe until we can agree on who is going to replace you.
  2. Ole Sack Watch - Poll Active

    If Murtough and Fletcher are doing their job they will surely have a list of candidates in mind. They might not have expected to have to move on it so quickly though. We may be terminal at the moment but i think most united fans were positive about our future based on the transfer window...
  3. Ole Sack Watch - Poll Active

    Absolutely this. Conte being willing and available shouldn't be the only criteria we use to pick Ole's successor. We should be opening it up and asking interested managers (of the right caliber) what they would do with this squad, what formation they'd play, how they view the future of players...
  4. Whatever happens we have a nest of vipers in the dressing room

    I think on the whole we have a good bunch of players who have played for the manager. But everyone has a tipping point and if you see the same mistakes being made and any chance of silverware slipping away surely you’re going to react.
  5. It's improved tempo that did it!

    Its definitely better to be facing Liverpool on the back of a comeback win versus a humiliating loss for sure. Whether that's enough to carry us over the line with a much needed win, I don't know. We'll be defensive and gamble on a late bit of magic from Ronaldo or Bruno to win it.
  6. Would you take Ten Hag at United?

    The pressure for PL managers is insane. So much focus and reaction to every single thing you do with entitled toxic fanbases and mud slinging media. Look at Steve Bruce's parting interview yesterday where he was a broken after 1000 games managing...
  7. How can Ole be this bad?

    There's obviously a lot of overreactions and blatant ignoring of the good things that Ole has done for the club for sure, but at the core of the issue a fair question to ask is whether our current position and performance levels are acceptable given our stature, legacy and finances? Is this...
  8. Would you take Ten Hag at United?

    I think he has to be in the conversation. Zidane and Conte both come with asterisks and question marks leaving the door open for a bit of a gamble. I think if it was to replace Mourinho it would be a no brainier but given we have a squad that should be ready to compete and some big egos to...
  9. Our transfer strategy under ole looks as directionless as it did under the previous manager

    Nah I’m not buying that. I think we’ve bought some seriously talented players and some world class leaders. I think the issue is that Ole doesn’t know how to get the best out of them. There are some duds (but don’t even mention James since we bought him cheap and sold him at a profit) but...
  10. Television Netflix announces 3 new Dave Chappelle comedy specials

    I'm not personally offended by anything Chappelle said in his specials, it wasn't directed at me. However I was uncomfortable that such big chunks of his recent shows were aimed squarely at belittling a minority that already faces verbal and physical abuse on a daily basis. Same with the likes...
  11. Transfer Tweets - 2021/22 | Check the OP for blacklisted sources before posting

    Back to Newcastle with ye, lad.
  12. Transfer Tweets - 2021/22 | Check the OP for blacklisted sources before posting

    Fair enough its only the mirror so take it with a pinch of salt but realistically Newcastle need an injection of PL proven players in January to push out of the relegation scrap and with United clearly overstocked in attack and central defence (Varane and Maguire being back in a few weeks means...
  13. Predict three players Newcastle will sign

    They're not going to go out and sign Neymar and Mbappe in January. Bearing in mind they're 2nd from bottom in a league where at least 3 big teams will miss out on Champions League each year. They're going to need to build year on year, I think they said the aim was a PL in 5-10 years so the...
  14. Predict three players Newcastle will sign

    From a United perspective surely a cut price Jessie Lingard, Martial or VDB will be enticing to Newcastle with the added message of 'we mean business' by buying a United player.
