Thats right. I started a thread about an Intertoto match. The season starts here, my friends!
Real bad. Then find out Roeder is actually as rubbish as was previously thought. And now they are stuck with him.
no one is worse than Souness. I'm confident Roeder won't screw it up. He might not take us very far, but he'll take us way further than Souness ever looked like he would.
what do you base this on? He did pretty well at West Ham considering he had next to no cash to spend, guiding them to 7th in his first proper season. Who can blame him for the next season? The injuries they had were terrible, possibly worse than Newcastle had last season. And to sack him the next season after his brain tumor was shocking.
When he took the reigns at Newcastle they out of something like 18 games, they won 15.
yeah, totally rubbish mate!!
And lost against the teams that Newcastle should be challenging. He is a rubbish manager. He got West Ham relegated, you can't blame relegation entirely on injuries.
newcastle are hardly title-contenders these days. 15 out of 18 is not bad at all, for any team.
so that means out of chelsea, arsenal, liverpool, tottenham, manchester united, bolton and west ham, they only lost to three of them? that's impressive.
for Marseille too...
Marseille is one of the many reasons Newcastle are trophiless...
Well, Drogba anyway..
Glad you put "One of the many reasons".
this on tv anywhere?
Get in there, Lillestrom get the away goal!

Damn good record by ANY standard
But when you say "oh but they are" in response to my "I don't think they are the real stats." It is a lie... Your original post said they won 15 out of 18 not 11 out of 17.
which isn't very nice or true. You are also quoting me out of context on the same page. A silly thing to do really.
Read what i ACTUALLY said again. I said - 'something' like. I made a slight error. So i couldn't quite remember exactly what the stat was. I wasn't that far wrong. I was much closer than your initial acusation of Roeder being RUBBISH!
But when you grossly exagerrated the statistics. 11 out of 17 is a lot different to 15 out of 18 yes? The only stand out results in that run aswell are the tottenham and middlesbourgh ones, and they are still hardly spectacular...
we beat chelsea!
Chelsea played a crap team, they had already won the league.
do chelsea actually have a crap(second) team? :-D
one against celtic, and his goal today.
I'll take it he'll be starting now then?
Whos he playing up front with today?
Newcastle do well in Europe playing teams from Liechstentein for 6 months and not getting anywhere will fuck up their domestic campaign. Newcastle get knocked out now, they are out of Europe. Either way im happy!
you'd swap places in a fucking heartbeat!!
and playing quite good (last time I checked )...
take a joke, jesus you can be a right cunt sometimes.
i find it bloody pathetic. You're a Sunderland fan. You haven't got a leg to stand on.
They need some better players on defense but with Cisse and Ribery (?) that might do a great team !
should I be worried next week?
'i find it bloody pathetic' are you not being a bit hypocritical now?!
and the Toon were pathetic in the first half. They hardly had a shot the whole first half.
Second half was much better with Newcastle being the far better team. Loads of chances and there could have been 5 or 6 goals.
Uwe Rosler has been doing a good job in Norway...my hometown team Dungannon Swifts were in that part of the draw but failed to beat Keflavik ..doh! Oh how we dreamed of taking on Newcastle at Windsor Park
