- Shearer! Toon!
Sad to say but Owen’s not worth his place. Even at his peak he needed someone to set his chances up for him or give him rebounds to leap on(Sheringham, Shearer himself, etc.) But there isn’t the quality at N’cle now and he creates nothing for himself.
Martins in for the next two – like a bit black and white battering ram. Come on the toon!!

Feeling a bit sorry for Hull. Dropping into the bottom 3 with 2 games to go and can’t see them getting out of it. Like most folks, I’m hoping that Newcastle go down and then maybe the sense of perpetual delusion maybe lifted from the club and they might have a chance of moving forward.Posted 8 years ago
As it is, I reckon the three that are there, are the three that will go. Bit sad for me as I wanted all the Brum(ish) clubs up next season.nisboMember
As a Boro fan I’ll kind of be glad when we do go down. It’s nice to be in the Prem’ and we’ve had some great recent success for an unfashionable team (2004 Carling Cup, 2006 Uefa Final etc) but increasingly it just seems to be a real miserable slog to try and just stay in the league and scrape the odd good result or run. One thing that irks me is the sheer number of expensive foreign players we keep ‘needing’ to buy in order to maintain this mediocrity – players that really don’t care much and don’t perform. Obviously we’ve had some great overseas players, but for every Juninho we’ve had far too many Alen Boksic’s. One of our best days (for me anyway) was the final game of the 2006 season – we lost 1-0 away to Fulham BUT 15 members of the 16 man squad that day were local lads born within 25miles of the Riverside. We have a great academy and dropping to the Championship will mean playing more of them and actually having a Boro team made up of home grown and born players.Posted 8 years agorusty trowelMember
At least if they go down the number of black and white shirts that have sprung up from ‘well my family come from there’ types in hants and dorset in the last 15 years should decrease. Bit like Leeds and Blackburn when they were successful. Everton and city seem to be the latest re-discovered ‘teams i’ve always supported’. Leicesters popularity has just dramatically made a resurgence, unbelievably at the same time as their promotion, what a coincidence.Posted 8 years agoiamtheresurrectionSubscriber
Out of the 50k or so that fill Sid James, about 30k are normal dour football fans who share a lifetime of mediocrity with us lot down the road. The other 20k are stupid knackers, who always seem to be the ones in front of a camera making a great soundbite for the media.
Newcastle easily have the highest number of pricks supporting their team. I feel sorry for the 30k or so normal fans who’d quite happily go about supporting Newcastle under the radar.
Absolutely hope they get relegated for a season. Wonder if the Bigg Market gets smashed up again (not that it really shows)…
