  1. Coincidentally that was my first game at camp nou too, and have to agree with everything Harry says. The loudest songs with most joining in were about Catalan independence.

    Home grown rules/man management

    How does dual nationality play into it? Surely someone like tettey could apply for British citizenship from living in the UK for so long. I''m thinking back many years from old football manager games but I thought it was 5 years?

    £3.5m Academy Fund - who's in?

    You can''t use the credit against season tickets. I emailed last night and had thus response...

    Unfortunately not, the Club Credit is redeemable against regular tickets, hospitality, club merchandise, kiosks and other club events, but not season tickets.

    Fifa on xbox live

    Not wanting to turn this into a fanboy type discussion but I''d be interested in one on PS4.

    Ricky Martin

    Been wondering that myself. I thought he did a lot of the stuff the new sporting director will do. So what tasks will now make up the technical director role I''m not sure.
  7. I always presumed any announcement would be towards the end of the week, hence Irvine being given two games in charge. A bit like when Neil took over, announced before the weekend but too late for the new person to be in charge for the game.

    Mitchell Dijks

    A right back rather than left, but was Jurgen Colin from ajax or psv?

    Projected £12m loss?

    I would suspect the figure is based on us achieving promotion with the loss coming from bonuses as is usually the case. Therefore we wouldn''t be in the EFL anymore and they wouldn''t be able to inflict any punishment.

    How much longer is olsson out for?

    Hoolahan signs new contract!

    Hopefully he can win the Barry butler trophy. Can''t believe he hasn''t won one yet.

    ALex Prichard

    Just out of curiosity, why do most people here rate pritchard so much higher than Bamford?

    Both had good seasons in the championship the year before last. Bamford ripped our defence to pieces up at Middlesbrough and for me was just as effective as pritchard was in the game at Carrow Road. And then both failed to make any impact in the premier league last season. Why is there such a clamour for us to sign him? Would be a bit of a risk if you ask me, unless there''s something I''ve missed.

    Russell Martin transfer?

    I''m sure he''ll get all the licks he wants down in Brighton!!

    Danny Ward

    We usually go with just two senior keepers when we''re in the championship, as we can take advantage of the loan window. I''d think should ruddy leave rudd will become number 1 with kean deputising.
  16. [quote user="Syteanric"]This is just one of a possible resolution... find a player and say to him "we''ll break the wage structure to bring you here, if you keep us up we''ll sell you to Chelsea/Man City/Liverpool" he spends the entire season shop windowing himself. We stay up, sell him, do the same again.[/quote]

    Haven''t Newcastle been doing this since Ashley got there? And they''re in an equally perilous position.

    PS4 Community

    Has anyone started a NCFC related PS4 community? If not would people be interested in joining one if I created it?

    Feel free to add my psn ID too. It''s the same as my username here...chrisr1606

    3-5-2?

    I''d been hoping after the man city away game that we might play 3 at the back more often. The 3 cbs would give us more protection through the middle, and still be able to play two up front with Wes in the no. 10 role. With 2 wing backs we wouldn''t lose out on any width to what we currently have as all our wide players seem to be told to tuck inside anyway.

    Manager blames the players

    I''d just written on the ''what''s gone wrong?'' thread but fits here as well...

    I wonder if Neil himself expects too much. He hasn''t so much as named names, but he has constantly bashed the players in post match interviews, even when we''ve won.

    And yes, a lot of the time the players deserved it and it''s refreshing to hear some honesty. But you also need to play the game a bit. Players now are delicate little flowers and if their egos aren''t massaged they simply won''t put a shift in, never mind battling against the odds when your backs against the wall.

    It''s something I''ve always wondered, even last season. I fear it has become the case and now Neil has lost the dressing room.

    BAMFORD SIGNS

    Paul101 wrote: "people are forgetting bamford and play on the right or left of midfield as well"

    That''s what I thought. I can see bamford playing more on the left side of the front three with Neil preferring Brady at LB. Gives us a lot more pace on the counter and was where bamford exploited us for Boro at carrow road last season.

    Bournemouth bid 8 million for Grabban

    [quote user="kick it off"][quote user="......and Smith must score."][quote user="Crabbycanary3"]Just a hunch KIO, but I suspect it is the opening round of negotiations.

    I have never heard of any transfer being concluded at the first turn.

    If you were happy to accept £8m for Grabban, then you will wet your pants if we get , say £10m in the end.[/quote]If anyone parts with £10m for Grabban they''re clearly a sandwich short of a picnic.[/quote]
    If McNally swindled £10mill for Grabban, you''re damn right I''d wet my pants, I''d be absolutely p1$$1ng myself. 
    I don''t care if it is opening round or not. No point holding out for an extra bit when they''re offering stupid money for a useless waste of squad space.
    If someone offers you £100 for a post it note, you don''t try and wait it out in the hope they offer £120. Take the money and run!
    [/quote]

    But then you have to ask yourself...why are they offering so much for just a post it note?
  23. Juan Velasco needs a mention. Didn''t Roeder haul him off after 20 minutes in one his brief appearances?

    Tettey injured

    Maybe my memory''s playing up but hasn''t Tettey been injured every Christmas he''s been here. Two seasons ago he seemed to be developing a good partnership with Fer only to get injured before Christmas and then Fer got injured just before he recovered.
