DeliaSmith3A valuable point or the chance of a rare win passed up?

Today at Carrow Road, Newcastle United ground out a desperate point in a poor advert for football, never mind Newcastle United and Norwich.

Was there anybody though who gave us some hope over and above their teammates?

Did you see hope from anybody that they can help lead us to the promised land of fourth bottom or above?

Vote now for your man of the match…though we have given you the ‘nobody’ option.

Baffles me how Tim Krul is escaping blame. He has been shocking this year.

Its true we could turn into a Southampton or Swansea. Its also true we could turn into a Leeds, Blackburn, Portsmouth, Where's the argument? FFS

I've never forgiven Howey  for not jumping high enough to stop Poyet scoring  in the semi-final  of the FA Cup against Chelski.

@hettonmag I've never forgiven sheperd for not insisting the game be played at old trafford, he could of at the time. we would have won there, played villa in the final & won the cup!

Jim, when you said, "Why do none of them ever say ‘Newcastle could turn into a Swansea or a Southampton’ with a new owner who showed just a little ambition?' you really did hit the nail on the head.


The debt at NUFC is arguably just a smokescreen, it is probably no more than a financial device, designed simply to maximise the owner's income. All the TV revenue has vanished - if it had not, and I would love the HMRC to take a proper, official look at NUFC's finances this past 8 years, NUFC Ltd would by now be in profit and as far away from the Portsmouth / Leeds situation as it could be possible to be. Of course, as owner, Ashley has chosen to maintain the 'debt' the club owes him and that is very interesting as it could have been paid back but he has decided to let it ride. There are several possible explanations for this, and none particularly good for NUFC.

Before i read the rst of this I cameup with the same names. 4 bloody players out of 20 odd that give a f***. How can earth can we replace 20 players before next season. No chance. Shameful

Howey's so wide of the mark about Ashley.

The fans would happily take their chances with a new owner - Ashley is the worst nightmare,despite the 'financial stability' of the club.We need an owner who knows something about football and the fans,and is not an ignorant,arrogant slob..

F**k off Howey you racist mackem w******r

The only reason you would defend Colback is he is a treacherous Mackem like you, best 2 games at SJP have been for the scum. There is a big reason the team he played for last year only survived by a flukey miracle and this year we are on the brink, but some people cant see past Geordie run a lot to see how often he costs the team

Sadly, virtually every fan would come up with the same four names. And that should give everyone the idea of the size of the rebuilding task that is sorely needed.
