Absolute w*****.

:lol: :thup:

I'll be going absolutely f***ing nowhere near a love-in for this no-mark who should be nowhere near the club. As complicit as the rest of them. Just happens to be competent.

I'm biased because I knew his dad but this talk is absolutely tripe. He's not your typical British managers lunch club coach. "Should be nowhere near the club" - he has the best CV for a coach that we've had for many years. I hope he gets the main job soon.

My view is based on the theory being correct about him being the acting manager/manager in waiting; and on that basis, his only managerial experience has come briefly at the foot of the Championship. So he isn't in the position on any sort of merit. Just another typical Ashley appointment; cheap, grateful and entering the job with eyes wide open. Just cos he's not a liar or totally incompetent (both of which remains to be seen of course) doesn't mean I'm gonna offer him any leeway.

Any manager at Mike Ashley's NUFC, who's career is being progressed at the expense of the continued Ashleyfication of the club, won't get any applause from me. Which I'm sure he'll be devastated about of course.

I mean the guy has been an assistant for eons, alongside a really good manager, and at club level as well as international level with a top international team.

In Ashley's model where he has always wanted more of a head coach that can work with players the recruitment team brings in, it's the kind of hire he should have looked for previously.

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.

The contrast between the two, here..


What I like about it is when I join a new team I hold back and let them take the lead for a bit so not to ruffle feathers.

He's just f***ed them off and going for it

There's no way Bruce appointed Jones then let him make him (Bruce)look like a fraud. Surely during his interview/appointment he's been told his real role and to be up front ASAP.

Not to be negative, but I reckon it's more having someone, anyone in other than Bruce & Co giving instructions that's lifted the players this week. Which is pretty indicative and damning given that he's a coach from the championship who was hardly heralded by fans of his former clubs.

What we saw today was probably similar to Villa when Dean Smith took over.

Only difference this time, Bruce hasn't been jetisoned (yet), and is still there trying to claim the credit.

Aye, granted. The guy he replaced at Luton was really well-liked by the supporters for his style, so he was probably up against it from day 1.

The fanbase gasping for an all-white British XI won't have helped.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

I do believe this is part of the reason for todays performance.  Amazing what have new voice to listen do can do to anyone in a job.

His only job really is to prevent Bruce from taking us down, and he's off to a flier in that regard so kudos to him. What happens from here depends totally on the takeover going through.

Somebody go try and decipher what Agnew is going on about there.

A stupid, clueless bunch of Steves right there.

By the way, someone we hated previously also liked to give a thumbs up the way Jones did at the end there. :lol:

See Edwards is having a meltdown on Twitter as Bruce is not getting the credit from the fans for the win. What a sad c*** he is

New messiah did ye say?
Jesus Jones it is then.

Personally keeping us up for the takeover and showing Bruce up is the only good that can come of it for me though. Anybody keeping this thing ticking over as is is not for me.

Will he become an international bright young thing?

Just shows, you don’t have to be a great coach, just have a vague idea of a plan and tactics and it can get you that. Who would have thought “let’s play” every day would not have the desired effect.

So it turns out he almost exclusively played a 4-3-1-2 formation at Luton. Checkout the tactic column on the far right below for his time at Luton.

The exact formation we played today. which Bruce had not used at all at Newcastle. Bruce looks to have been demoted :laugh:
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.
