There is a quote that could have been written for us all, it often gets misquoted but this is how it goes;

‘You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time’.

What a nugget!

What a nugget!

Abraham Lincoln might have had more on his mind than the trials and tribulations of following Newcastle United but the quote is timeless as far as we are concerned.

We’ve long known that the press can easily pick a player at random, then pick a few clubs out of another jar, the result an invented story that unfortunately today then gets repeated round and round the block/internet.

So today I keep seeing a story pop up regarding a ‘Toon backlash’ because Joe Kinnear is planning on bringing in Phil Bardsley from the mackems.

Now we all know that JFK has the odd weakness but nobody surely believes this story in any way, do you?

Another full-back isn’t a priority and definitely not a lone who is a total nugget on and off the pitch.

It was Bardsley who provoked Paolo Di Canio into his mammoth rant towards the end of last season, when he was photographed covered in £50 notes in a casino in the midweek before the last match of the season at Spurs. Di Canio dropping him from the squad in disgust and making clear he wants him gone.

I'm all for a bit of capitalism and entrepreneurship but I think they are being slightly disingenuous with the claim that they are selling at cost price. 


It's a standard adidas club kit that can be bought from the teamwear websites at £17 a pop. Discounts will be available for bulk buys and a bit of embroidery is £1 a go. So, someone is on the make, well done for spotting a gap in the market.

are you allowed to make them when you dont own the club or the brand style and logos

@Happyharrys2011 @WAYNEANDCATH1  yes, they have just taken a standard B&W shirt, embroidered a non-TM logo and passed it off as a £27 shirt. Good luch to them, Grainger Market have been doing it for yonks so nothing new.

Are you even on this planet pal? Every time you talk on here it is about things you haven't got a clue about. They have been developing these for months and have the backing of addidas, they have a huge legal page with terms on. Give your head shake!

I am just curious but what are the moral differences between a legal pay day lender, a bank that goes bust and loses lots of peoples savings in the process or a brewery?

1957 are you sure it wasn't Mike Ashleys fault?

There is no difference between Wonga and high street banks that haven't gone bust. One bank that I use wanted to charge me £102 for going £3 over my agreed overdraft, due to a mistake of theirs.

When will you have these back in stock? Size L men's has sold out!!

Really want 3 shirts but the only option to pay is with PayPal. I don't use PayPal for similar reasons I won't give Jabba money. They have extorted me in the past.

Is there any other way to get these shirts without using PayPal?

Happyharrys2011

I sold an item on eBay brand new sealed in the box. The buyer said it was faulty and sent it back, I got a second hand item and PayPal just automatically took the money out of my bank and gave them the money. With no questions asked. When I rang them they asked me to send my passport driving license and other personal items. What the f***?

Me too, and it took 9 months to recover the double charge on the goods I bought.

In addition if you set up a new account with them make sure you tick every box you can find saying you don't want your details selling on. I was inundated with scammers, who had my PayPal details, when I complained they said it was because I hadn't refused to have my details sold on, although they couldn't/wouldnt give me proof. They are about as ethical as Wonga.

If I can buy one over the counter anywhere I would, Im sure some outlet would help

blame Mike Ashley, I would.

Charnley is in talks with Paypal about being our shirt sponsor. I bet you would find something to moan about if unicef was the sponsor.

you could just buy an older version of the shirt, but this one does make a statement so I support it.

Looks good! One problem though - doesn't Mike Ashley hold a substantial amount of shares in Adidas?


Happyharrys2011
Happyharrys2011

No he doesn't he once bought and sold shares years ago.

@Bishbosh11 In 2007, shortly after floating Sports Direct and cashing in £900m, Ashley went on a spending spree, buying a 3 per cent stake in Adidas for around £200m and snapping up Newcastle United. He managed to sell his Adidas shares within eight weeks, but still left some analysts and observers questioning whether a sports retailer should also own a stake in a major supplier....

II like it, at least it's got the black n white stripes and logos which mean something, I always thought the Adidas shirts were great quality when the club had the contract with them anyway, I'd wear it.

Was there any permission required from adidas? Wouldn't mind a pic of the back also.

I don't think so. I've always hated the plain backed shirts.

One thing that hasn't been pointed out is that the back of this shirt carries a white patch - a massive bone of contention over the official shirt and one that has sadly carried over to this otherwise excellent alternative.

Excellent idea. Well done and thank you to all involved. I will be buying one. Just one question....... does it have stripes on the back?........ A novel idea I know.
