God, I hope this happens...
*does little dance*
More money to buy shit foreigners!
It's the new leadership.
understood this, really...
you now have Allardyce in charge. That should have read "washed-up mercenary journeymen".
as first signing
Watch this space.
would be an excellent signing for you lot. first decent central-defender there for years...
is sick of playing to empty red seats and would love to strut his stuff in front of our over-expectant masses
scoring less than 7 goals next season.
The only reason him and Yakubu got a few this season is because they were basically the only players to score for Boro.
on a £75,000 per week contract
Next will be Romario on a free so he can come on in the 89th minute of every game, and parade around the centre circle, costing approximately £31,094,949 for every minute he plays.
Then he'll get Zubizaretta in goal because he has a nice name.
the best news ever.
Big Sam could get a nice big "welcome to the club" pot of cash from the incumbent directors, and he's smart enough to not spend it all on aging strikers.
he'd field 10 strikers
Clone Shearer circa-95 11 times, each with a different positional sense.
he was still at blackburn in 95...
good news for Newcastle, but...
With Aston Villa, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man United, West Ham and Portsmouth also all under foreign ownership and with decent pots of cash available to strengthen (plus possible takeovers of Arsenal and Man City), there's going to be some owners putting a lot of money into clubs expecting success, but getting little.
Allardyce > any other manager outside the top 4.
We have the management, now we'll have the right backing too. I wonder what the likes of Owen will make of this. it could be the clincher in persuading him to stay.
next seasons home strip is rather ugly?
This is rubbish
perhaps he is ready to step into the limelight
he is the 25th richest person in the country!
by 8 of Ireland's richest people and a travel agent. Ireland = richer than Britain. Therefore, we win.
but you're Sunderland. Broke your own record for lowest points.
failure in style > bland consistent failure which lasts forever
At least we have some excitement. Better than being stuck in mediocreville between relegation and mid-table.
The new Newcastle strip has big black bits under the arms that are too thick also. Just saying.
forcing you to get a number put on the back so it doesn't look too stupid.
to help fund the purchase of the next Titus Bramble, or with any luck Brian Kilcline.
They did the same with a big daft black shield a few years ago too.
it looks wrong without a number but they could fuck off if they thought i was going to make my pocket money stretch that far
I think it was the season when you could have had GUIVARCH on the back. I wonder how many people actually made that mistake!
my favourite wrong shirt is when shitloads of people got BAGGIO shirts then it turned out he had no intention of ever coming up here
