Decent player imo, would be a better squad option than the likes of Gosling. Free transfer so can't really complain.

You can though, because he'll end up on the pitch ahead of better players.

I've sort of convinced myself that Pardew will be sacked at the end of the season, which I'm finding in turn puts a slightly positive spin on most things associated with football and NUFC.

It's just pointless to me. He won't get any better, he's painfully average, doesn't create, doesn't tackle. He's a Mackem, it's just f***ing s***
: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.

He can deputise at left back can't he? No wonder he's a Pardew target.

Ashley sanctioning a signing for him wouldn't be a good sign. I'm assuming Colback would be his choice.

Quote from: Daily Mail
Despite coming through the youth ranks at Sunderland having joined the club at the age of 10, Colback - who was born in Newcastle - is prepared to make the controversial move.


Is this supposed to distract us from the fact he's not actually any good? If we're sniffing around the relegation candidates for 'bargains', then that merely confirms us as soon-to-be strugglers ourselves.

To think Yohan Cabaye once graced the shirt he'll wear  :rant:

As a squad player, yes. As a first teamer, no.

Magnolia midfielder. Bland as f*** without any discernible talent or fault.

Dare say he could fit into an XI without you even noticing he was there for any reason whatsoever. He's not good but he's not bad, he just 'is'.

He's on a free though and if they can peddle Gosling for a million and sign this c*** then they'll see it as a million quid up on the deal and at the end of the day, for them, that's all that matters. Is he what we need? Doesn't matter, we're up on the deal. Sums the c***s up.

I think he is an alright player BUT obviously the issue is that he will most likely be signed as a Cabaye replacement rather than a squad player which is what he would be decent for

Replacement for Perch or even Tiote I'd be OK with.
Anything more and it's a pisstake.

I think all your comments are unfair, and you're just using science against him. I think he'll give us that imputes, resilience and fret.
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

:lol: thing is I'd gladly sign a Mackem player who was too good for them and needed a step up, but one of their players who they don't even rate. Grim times. Very very grim

He's out of contract in about eight weeks like. Think of the wages we'll save though. :fwap:

Was massively dubious when we signed Bracewell but as soon as he hit that screamer in the opening game, I was converted. Not against it per se but how often do they have a player who could improve our team.  :cool:

I don't think he's middle-class enough tbh.
