Its genuinely mental. How warped people are by the media and twitter. I think this is Newcastle worst start to the season. and Newcastle's worst home run since the 1950's. Benitez was a good manager 15 years ago - he doesn't seem to be an...

Remember when Newcastle were 8th and everyone was really upset with the manager? (Despite having no where near the money Benitez has available or the ability to be in control of transfers). Remember the following season when our main goal scorer Remy f...

Tbf our tactics rely on us having Didier Drogba upfront. - They don't work unless we have Didier Drogba. Just focus on finishing 18th. I think we can finish above Huddersfield and Cardiff. - Southampton may get caught in but they'll get a sho...

I would rather have Gayle - though he was actually excellent in 2018 - he'll never be prolific but his all round game was actually very good. - I do like Rondon but I tolerate non-scoring forwards a lot more than most. Dubrakva and Kennedy were very...

Yeah Pards certainly turned round some awful ends to the season and we're normally fine by September. I know I sound like a broken record - but I feel like Newcastle are just a PR machine for Benitez. He's the first manager ever to need 't...

We're 90% likely to end a season on a five game losing run. - Big issue that it may carry into the new season. - And could easily finish 15th or so. For what it's worth we got 46 points the last time we came up under Hughton/Pardew. And got 41...

Can't believe Benitez' pre-match chat about how his squad are all shite and he's the greatest manager ever who deserves trophies. Always thought Javi Gracia looked a good manager - but he took off his centre forward and replaced him with A...

Kennedy looks really great. - We've finally replaced Sammy Ameobi And tbf - well on top - take off your best player - and sit back against a team with little aside about them aside from pumping balls into the box.

I'd say we're in a perverse position right now - Giving Benitez any money increases the chances of relegation. He'll sign a shite GK and a shit centre-forward - that send us backwards. -Before scrapping it - and going back to Joselu and E...

Yeah but that's the point. Benitez completely unnecessarily bought a GK - who was worse than what we've got. - And he seems determined to do it again. Against Swansea - the 'megafans' were eager to point out that Benitez' team wa...

Jorgensen and Dubravka both seem worse than what we've already got. Dubravka has 9 caps for the Czech Republic. Everton legend Jan Mucha has been number 1. - Jorgensen seems like a much worse, less prolific Mitrovic. I think Benitez might have act...

It's for the best. - Stavely is a bullshit merchant. - Everything she's associated with fails. At least Mike Ashley is risking his own capital. - He's tied to us whether he likes it or not.

Yeah - genuinely amazed Benitez got stick for midweek - for almost scraping a point against Man City - but never gets criticised for complete non-performances like today. I think Darlow, Dummett, Lascelles, Joselu and Hayden are the only ones who put in...

Saivet was apparently sent straight to the reserves - as was Doumbia. Ah Thauvin. - Benitez sold a guy who's probably worth £50m for less than he bought Matt Ritchie or Jacob Murphy.

Saivet was apparently banished to the reserves by Rafa for two years.... And yeah I'm a bit skeptical about the injuries - looked to me that Benitez is stunting to try and 'prove a point'

It's a Christmas Miracle. No Shelvey and Hayden, and Newcastle look a team transformed. (Also more solid without Lejeune) Rafa will be fuming thought - with Elliott saving a penalty. - and I wonder how injured Mitrovic, Lejeune, Merino and Hayden...

He's literally passed the ball and landed on Bellerin. Does no one play football anymore and actually use context? - People's criteria for a red simply seems to be if it looks bad in slow-mo or a still photograph. I'm not really paying at...

Absolutely baffling not playing Merino against Palace and Southampton. - The way we're set up - he's the only one with enough ability to make something happen. Shelvey really isn't good enough. Aarons has apparently been fit for weeks - an...

Dyche 1-0 El Dyche We'd be relegated already if we didn't have Merino. Ritchie seems to refressed into being average, Shelvey offers nothing, Perez is lighweight, Joselu has no threat. Lejeune looks dodgy as well. Clark, Mbemba, Merino, Colb...

It's not particularly successful - but we were absolutely rudderless before Ashley - and we probably won't be any better after him. And what we had two good seasons in the decade before? - and two good seasons in the decade before that?

My point is takeovers never actually work - either the club is run in the exactly the same way it previously was, an owner is a 'maverick' who make impulsive decisions and pisses everyone off, Or an owner with big plans - who inevitably loses in...

He's kept prices down reasonably down - and we'd be in a much worse state that if he never bought it (He was probably the only possible buyer in 2008 - because he didn't do proper due diligence) Really can't see any sale happening -...

Newcastle obviously weren't gonna sign someone tbf. Like no one has even been seriously linked. Transfer window is mental. People saying Newcastle did worse than Swansea who sold they're two best players.
