We gave Derby and Sunderland points the year they finished bottom on record lowest points too. We're amazing.  :lol:

Derby, yes but we did the double over the mackems in both of those seasons.

88-12 vs a team with no wins. That's bordering on intentionally s***.

I can’t remember as bad a performance as that, might just be recent bias but contextually with how bad they are, that was horrendous
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

Someone else said it earlier in the thread, but you just knew that if there was a team to get their first win of the season, it would be against us!

I always remember the time in the past when Peter Crouch hadn’t scored a goal in like 15 years of football and then scored against us - just had to be!

Anyone who still thinks we're safe must be blind, we just got absolutely outplayed by a team with two points, who can't score.

We are in massive trouble if we stick with Bruce, to think otherwise is quite mad.

Spot on as usual
There are a serious amount of people (can't be fans) that thought we were safe from relegation from over a month ago!  I mean, what are they thinking?  "We've got 18 points man, we are well safe".  Fu#king idiots, got to be.  Are you not watching the games?  Do you not know [email protected] all about the game of football?

Brewster also almost got off the mark against us today too, if not for the post :lol:
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

Oh, well we're not as bad as I thought!

I think Mike Ashley should keep Steve Bruce. The latter takes as good care of NUFC as the former as done for well over a decade. They deserve each other. This club :thdn:

13 years ago today we lost 6-0 at Old Trafford. Just had a read of the .com report. Heh, similarities galore. Particularly the bold.

Quote
Our next away league game? Arsenal.

With the eyes of the world on us, this admittedly terrible result attracted a disproportionate amount of coverage - and hardly any of it was because Ronaldo grabbed a hatrick...

Never has so much hot air being publicly expended by people desperate to condemn Newcastle fans for doing no more than turning out supporting their side, or ridicule claims nobody sane has ever made about our being "a big club".

Anyone would think we were a big club, given the level of coverage we attract from domestic TV, radio and the newspapers, let alone the battalions of overseas commentators who file inaccurate copy for their Premiership-obsessed readers.

But this is the world we now live in - where University professors discuss the travails of Northern Rock on national radio and have to respond to queries about the team's performance wearing shirts with that brand emblazoned on it. Madness.

Meanwhile, provincial and national writers seem intent on dragging our name into everything possible, such as:

The Peterborough evening paper filling their pages with the spurious "not a big club" debate...
The Daily Telegraph slagging off Mike Ashley in a match report.....of Doncaster v Carlisle....
Journalists adding the words "like Newcastle" to quotes from Hyppia about Anfield turmoil.....   

And moving on the text / emails / online survey cobblers routinely presented as "fact":

Sky asking a group of half-cut Toon fans to shout "Shearer, Shearer" outside Stoke - footage which was duly run to back up their claims that the Geordie Nation demanded the man from Gosforth's appointment.

Show me an online survey or vote where there's any validation as to who the people are who are voting? We've taken great pleasure by trying to screw up polls conducted about our rivals - why should we expect them not to try the same trick with us?

Explain to me how Sky or the Chronicle have any idea whether the texts or emails they receive suggesting who should succeed Sam are from Mags, Mancs, Mackems or Mongolians?

And don't even start on the vox pop nonsense - interviewing people who just happen to be walking past the ground / digging holes. etc or serving up another public display of why a certain local hack should be locked in the cellars of Thomson House...or failing that, have his mouth sewn up.

People claimed that we were the nations' favourite when christened The Entertainers under Kevin Keegan - a decade on though, we seem to be more newsworthy than ever  - perhaps some silverware could even arrive, if we beat off the challenges of Weatherfield and Walford at the UK Soap Awards.... 

Our hopes now are three-fold: none of which necessarily involve the acquisition of cups. 

A team to be supported with pleasure, not a heavy heart and a sense of duty.....
A manager we don't feel ambivalent, embarrassed or downright grubby about supporting....
For the rest of the planet to f*** right off and mind their own business.

Are these unrealistic expectations? probably.


We always try to keep that line about "these are the best times" in our thoughts - it's damn hard though at times like this, when we feel like exhibits in a freak show.

There has to be a conviction (maybe a bad word to use) that Mort and Ashley will ultimately succeed, after the final legacy of the previous junta was removed - there's still plenty time for this to be a Happy New Year, honest.
"Ferdinand, Clark...Rob Lee...Newcastle have won it! Alan Shearer's got a hattrick! They were 3-1 down, Kenny Dalglish and his players can celebrate an extraordinary victory! You could say it's typical Newcastle United!" - Newcastle United 4-3 Leicester City, February 1997

I reckon Haydn wears pure concentrated pheromones.
