Have fun88 signed a new deal since they began? As this would be their last year on the original deal.

If they have then it hasn’t been public ally disclosed. The shirt manufacturer is also up this season. There is no rumours about who is taking over either. Charnley probably hasn’t even had time to tender them out.

Our shitshow operation probably "forgot" all about them. Conveniently needing us to replace them with an Ashley sportswear brand and Sports Direct sponsorship on the cheap at short notice.

Wouldn't be surprised if we play in black bin bags, if our training facilities are anything to go by.

We'll just be the "Skins" all season.

Just see what Sports Direct have in stock. Old Man Utd kits or something.

Brilliant depressing read

https://theathletic.co.uk/1619457/2020/02/20/salomon-rondon-newcastle-interview/

The logic or otherwise of that policy stirs anguished debate — Joelinton, Rondon’s permanent replacement, is 23, cost £40 million, and has contributed one Premier League goal — although Rondon cannot do very much about that. He lifts his shoulders. “It’s about decisions and it wasn’t my decision,” he says. “If Newcastle had offered me a deal, if they’d said ‘Do you want to stay here?’, then of course I would have stayed.”

He sounds wistful now. “To be honest, last season was the best I’ve ever had,” he says. “Not just because I scored goals, but because everything around me was so right, from the school of my children, to the city, the people, my family being happy. I was working really hard in every training session to be in the team and I did everything properly for that. I was playing. Everything was perfect.”

Would he like to come back to England? “I hope so, one day,” he says. “If Newcastle made me the offer, I’d definitely come back!” He smiles again.

He’s too old though they said. He’s a money grabbing mercenary they said. f*** off NUFC and local press who carried that s*** rhetoric. shocking that a player who actually puts effort on and off the pitch, stays out of trouble etc wants to be paid the going rate. A true commitment is playing for free and being 23 with sell on value.

I think he’d struggle under Bruce the same way he did under Pulis & Pardew. He might have a few more goals but I think any striker in this set up would struggle.

Rondon wanted to stay even without Rafa - family man loved the area and wanted to finally settle down. Nah man, no - too old.

Pretty sure Rafa going did have a big impact mind.

I'd imagine unlike a large a set of our fans, players care more about the quality of the manger over where they were born.

Was pretty well known around the city that Rondon went to Halfords Autocare for his motoring needs as well thus rendering Steve's in-depth knowledge of Kwik-Fit absolutely useless.

They've painted a sort of Shearer mural thing in one of the subways near Manors car park with loads of old-school Big Al photos. Really s**** photo but an example being
