It's one thing to cheer on Abu Dhabi as a city fan when Thaksin got his bank accounts frozen, or Abramovich when Chelsea were in administration. But imagine your club's future being under no threat and STILL wanting Chopper Hadith to take over.

Grotesque and unsurprising. Same as the Mackems cheering a fascist through the front door.

A big no from me, don’t mind Newcastle the football team, but I despise what the premier league has become. I’m with Tayside, I cannot stand the best league in the world patter and the sooner it implodes , the better.

I like Newcastle as a city. And I've always had a soft spot for Newcastle United. However, no more. The world is absolutely fucked. The super rich easily buy off the plebs.

Never liked Newcastle, thought Ashley was about right for them as owner. Finding it quite funny some of their support finding ways of justifying this new ownership.
Sports journalists of Newcastle beware.
Absolutely spot on M.

Agreed with every word, couldn't have put it better myself.

Never been fond of the club either. A 'big' club who last won the top flight in the 1920s and the FA Cup in 1954/55. They've won one trophy in around the last 66 years. They're well supported, yes, and have a large stadium but I don't see why they 'deserve' success any more than any other team.

My dislike of them probably started after their FA Cup sixth round match in 1974 against Forest at St James' Park. Forest were winning easily 3-1 and Newcastle then had a man sent off. Their fans invaded the pitch and attacked some of the Forest players (there is clear footage of Forest players being punched), the ref took the players off for their own safety. When the game resumed, Forest, clearly rattled, lost three goals, losing 4-3. Forest appealed and there was a replay at Goodison Park which ended in a draw. Another replay was held - at Goodison again which seemed unfair to me - and Forest lost to a MacDonald goal. Seemed a bit of justice when Newcastle got their arse kicked all over Wembley by Liverpool in the final.

Not just the EPL, but all leagues down there have been fucked by the money Sky, then rich overseas owners have spanked into it. When any player comes up here you see fans of their old club giving it "tinpot league, granny could score in that league" etc etc. Does my nut in.

Who says they do "deserve" more than anythother team? Hibs are a big club imo, b ut we've hardly won fuck all. Newcastle are a big club. Saudi billions or not.

Quite a lot of people I'd say. I observe this 'deserve' word a lot when people talk about the club, in the media, fan forums and groups etc. People can debate whether they're a big club or not, depending on their own definition of what that is. What can't be debated is that they win things commensurate of a big club. In that regard they're an abject failure.

I’ve seen this whole “deserve” thing from some supposedly reputable journalists.

it’s meaningless and utterly glib. They have passionate fans. So what? Brighton don’t? Watford fans don’t deserve it? What about Brentford’s fans who endured 74 years out of the top flight?

I like Newcastle as a city, like the people, but somehow their football team is a mythical special case? You can f£&@ right off with that p£&@

I’m concerned enough with hibs being run by Americans and signing up to sponsors with cryptocurrency scams - I would be absolutely gutted if we sold out to Saudis. I wouldn’t be rejoicing as if we’ve won the lottery.

Im sure if you'd sat with Newcastle fans, you'd realise that they dinnae feel special at all in the main. Thats my experience. (since 1992).

Its pretty much a way of life for a depressed part of England. They are passionate as fook. And they correctly hate mackems

But the point stands. They are a big club.

Trophies are simply one metric.

And the "deserve" comments can be slung at almost any club ouwith citeh, manure, red scousers and chelski.

A bit like Hearts tell every one who will listen to them that they're a big club. It means nothing.

As for 'deserve', I don't see that particular word used about those genuinely large and successful clubs you mention. Somehow, Newcastle deserve better than other clubs though. They don't deserve anything they're not able to manufacture for themselves for generations.

its not like hertz.

And you very much hear about clubs who havnae won lots, having fans "deserving" this or that. Nothing to do with NUFC.
"somehow, Newcastle deserve better than other clubs"... eh?

Anyway, being a NF fan, you'll no need tae worry too much aboot the Toon :077:
