    Tell that to Ipswich!!!
  2. If there is any silver lining it is the humorous pieces that have come out after the cup tie. Here is one from Toon. There is also a terrific piece in the Times which may be firewalled. https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/business/business-opinion/watching-brexit-britain-newcastle-united-15694473 https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/destination-dismay-chasing-a-curse-with-newcastle-fans-in-the-fa-cup-d6q6zx9rx?utm_source=Unica&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=james_Bulletin Experiment_fixed_timing_model_STM_1Imag_TS
  3. “Alan is Town's sixth signing in the January window and will wear the number 31 shirt.” Lambert is sorting out the calamity of his predecessor. Plenty of new players wanting to prove themselves including Alan Judge.
  4. Thank you for the insight. I reflect therefore I am. RTID and beyond.

    Interesting comment from Judge after joining Ipswich. https://www.eadt.co.uk/sport/town-fans-react-to-judge-signing-1-5851989
  6. Two moments of magic in a dull game at a dodgy place. Travis’s passing and energy level. Lenihan strong at the back. Nuttall “scored” and put it about. Great finish by Armstrong. Three away points.
  7. Pretty exciting. We wanted a shake up. Here we go. A chance for plenty of folks to shine. Whether we get tonked or not it is a bold move. Cautious it is isn’t.

    Venkys - Welcome or Not?

    You only have to look around around the Premier League and Championship to see the clowns owning clubs making knee jerk reactions. Some do it for the love and are out of their depth. Some are convicted money launderers, and some try and do it for the money and get a rude awakening. I believe Venkys were naive and listened to the wrong advisors. That won’t be the last time that happens in the World. I have been as angry as most over the years, but as my angst ridden Wednesday mate reminds me “You have tasted success in your lifetime.” Time is now. They, like us, want stability, logic and success and the Venkys are still here putting money into a club with 12k attendances. Tell that to the long suffering and passionate Newcastle fans who have been bled dry by their owner and 50K still turn up in hope Lets be thankful for the moment. A team that is adjusting well to one of the toughest leagues in the World where give or take 9 teams were playing Premier League football in the last three years. Enormous investments have been by other clubs in this league with huge expectations. Welcome Venkys. We all learned some harsh lessons and had bad times with bad managers and bad players, but now is the time to collectively enjoy what has been achieved with Arte et Labore et Mowbre.

    ROVERS v Sheff Wed

    Very strange. I was looking for a Downing thread this week and couldn’t find one. The forgotten man returns with a vengeance. That combined with the passion of Conway and Reed feeding the beasts. Great to see Graham score a hat trick. Wearing my shirt with pride at Fresh Markets.

    ROVERS v qpr

    Weird string of moaning. We are 8th. Above Swansea, Villla, Brentford, Wednesday and Stoke. I am relishing it. Everyone else is playing Ketchup.

    Tony makes head scratching team selection bold moves. God bless him. Away point is a great result. We are mere mortals.
