    Would anyone be surprised if var rescues Newcastle on the last day of the season ?

    Not if they use the same var set up from the palace v liverpool game

    Disgusting decision to award a penalty

    Would you dare to accuse a Sumo Wrestler that he is fat to his face?

    I would, if I were paid enough (and had a clear run out of the door).

    However, I can't speak Japanese, so that's me out

    In the last three games I have thought Grant has been immense - exactly the sort of leadership the team needed.  

    I was going to start a thread highlighting exactly the same. He is a colossus for us at times and a very cleaver player in a very unforgiving league.

    Loved the palm off on one of their winging players as well.

    Fingers crossed he stays fit

    Anyone else surprised by the reaction to Sargent's goal? 

    Don't get me wrong, I was delighted when it went in (then terrified for a moment when I thought it didn't, then delighted again when the ref said it did l, then terrified again when it went to VAR, then delighted again when it was confirmed). I also thought that Sargent had a fantastic game in general and looked a completely different player on the right. I thought he was excellent.

    I've seen his goal described as 'a worldie', 'an audacious scorpion kick', and 'one of the best goals ever' and I have no idea how any of those things are even close to accurate.

    His entire body was past the ball and the only way he could make contact was to throw a foot in its direction. It happened to make contact, the ball looped into the air, and it happened to drop in.

    He did well to stay alive in the box, took up a good position/made a good near post run, and did what he had to do to get something on the ball. It wasn't any more than that though was it? I doubt he even really intended it to come off like that.

    Disclaimers: I am very happy with the result, very happy with Sargent's performance, and like Sargent generally as a player.

    I do understand your point, to a degree. I'm not sure I would describe it as a worldie (though my boy does).

    However, he has put himself in there and kept going the whole game. 

    That goal came from effort, effort and effort. And for that alone I thought it was beautifully executed.

  5. If he carries on playing like that in midfield with his athleticism and aggression and add in a goal or two along the way, not only will he become a big asset for us he will, because of his enthusiasm and endeavour, become a fans favourite.

    Very quickly

    Are you related to McLean? 😉👍

    I'm not (😉 👊) but what I am related to is the thought of a fellow canary trying his hardest to perform for us. And whilst it is clearly fashionable to stick the boot into NCFC, I will not and never bow to those di(kheads.

    Having supported us since the mid 70's these evenings to me are precious.

    One or two of our support need to look at the bigger picture

    He’s crap but puts the effort in. 

    He's not crap (whatever that is compared to) and that description of a young man who has worked his way up to a team like our is offensive.

    He is a midfielder in a PL team.

    On top of that, he is a is a midfielder in OUR team. I suspect that DS has a much higher opinion of him than you do and that is ALL THAT MATTERS

    So you see even the coffin dodgers who apparently take up all the seats in The City Stand could walk unaided down the stairs with the ball in hand . 🤣😜

    Ha, ha, he certainly didn't look like a coffin dodger. Simply a concerned citizen of this county who insisted on passing the ball back personally.

    Spot on. There were a few tactical fouls, that needed to be made, to stop Everton breaking on us. Nothing that pretty much all other Prem teams do. We are learning

    Yep, nice to see some more 'proactive' type interactions to stop them gaining a foothold. More of the same please

    Who cares how much he can run. It’s totally pointless to run 1 yard if you can control a football. What does our running have to do with it either. The guy is utter šhite. He’s not fit to wear the shirt. 

    On what basis is he not fit to wear the shirt? If it is purely skills based then I suspect 99.9999% of our support are not fit to wear it either.

    I agree he is struggling big time but your comments towards a young footballer trying his best in unfamiliar surroundings are harsh

    Also worth noting the (of course claimed) levels of corruption involved too. Such as certain big profile players such as Aubameyang for example allegedly being secretly paid extra and bribed into playing for Gabon behind the scenes even though he's made it obvious he does not give a toss about the team at all.

    Ha, ha I can just imagine some of the (alleged) 'deals' going on to influence games and personnel
