Yeah this is the first time I’ve noticed it. I just get the impression he is too stubborn to retire and sky don’t have the heart to move on from him. As a result we have this. 

Probably fearful of some creepy Clive Tyldesley-esque garden video if they gave him the boot. 

 

He needs dropping. Ending up like Motson where it just got painful.

If you could choose one of the league, FA Cup or Europa League to win this season, which would it be?

In a season with fans I'd choose either of the FA Cup or Europa League for sure.

 

This season? Give me the league again. I think in a perverse way it would mean less than the other two right now, since we've already gone through the insane high of 2016. Been there done that yaknow, so not being present for it would hurt a little less. But missing out on our first ever FA Cup under the Wembley Arch, or an insane trip out to Poland to see the boys claim their first European triumph? They're the sorts of days we dream of as fans. It'd sting, in the same way Liverpool fans are no-doubt ruing not being able to be there to see their first title in three decades... and possibly their last for a little while too. :ph34r:

I may have placed Europa on a par with the league a month or two ago during our pre-Christmas wobble, but I have confidence that we'll get the top 4 berth we need for Champions' League this year at the moment, so it would only pip the league in terms of desirability if we find ourselves collapsing again like we had already begun to do by this point last season (admittedly from a far more secure position in the top 4, or so it seemed).

Plus, like it or not, the league is more prestigious and important for future growth to win in this day and age than either of the others - otherwise Sevilla would be the biggest club in Spain by now. lol

It's not easy, but I wouldn't say never again. We're growing and improving every season currently. If we can carry on the trajectory we're on, or catch the competition sleeping again, it's not out of the question.

 

Vardy's one in more than a million, but we've shown we can spot a player. If I had to trust any club's scouts to find the next best thing, it would be ours (or maybe Brentford's!).

Newcastle are completely ****ed if Fulham win Wednesday and Sunday. Newcastle play Man Utd and Fulham have got Burnley and Sheff U so could easily be a 1 point gap by Monday.

 

Darlow appears to just be staying in goal now 'because' despite having one of the leagues top keepers over the past 3 or 4 seasons on the bench and fit.

 

Lascelles was bad before COVID, now he's bad and can't breathe... 

 

Always said Ashley would never pull the trigger unless relegation was on the cards..... well.....
