The Magpies really need a win and it's not happening against Citeh.

/a draw would be a post-Boxing Day miracle

Seriously, just give them the EPL Title right now.  I do not think any club can catch them.

Serie A is the only competitive league at the moment.

Apparently, after yesterday's draw, JoMo thinks spending £300m isn't enough at UTD.
I am pretty curious to know what Burnley or even Bristol City's total squad value is

Its never his fault, ever.  Never the tactics, never the set-up.  Its always "we don't spend enough money."

Also, please Rafa, get at least a tie out of this.  Make midpoint happy (and also the rest of the table)

But he has to seriously question the wisdom of blowing 100 million of that on Pogba alone.
He's not worth even half of that unless it was just to get bums on seats & flog shirts.

NBC just said it was 100 million, so given the exchange rate, that must be $100M or £75M

Yup. Klavan has good instincts but the agility and foot speed of a grand piano. Lovren is, well, Lovren.

There's better pure defenders in the world than VVD, but a pairing of him and Matip (who has experience playing midfield as well) adds even more fluidity to the lineup, as everyone in front of Mignolet/Karius is now really comfortable on the ball and mobile. I have a nagging suspicion that our overall defense won't improve that much, but we'll at least look a bit less sucky...while still being sucky at times.

I thought Pep would rotate & start Jesus so I gave him the Alice band.
Bollocks!

dietbubba: Yep. Pretty much my thoughts as well.


I'm also assuming that once Clyne gets back into the fold (which may not be until 2020 at this rate...), then Joe Gomez gets slotted back to being a platoon CB, and his decent play/mobility shown while at RB this season lends me to think he's in Klopp's future plans at the back too.

Our counter-attacks are competent. Ditto set-pieces. So I can see us scoring. Alas I can also see us conceding, and more than we score.

It's how much we spent that's the problem, it's how badly we spent it. Look at the number of big name "superstars" who completely failed to perform and were gone in one or two seasons. Or the overpriced squad players that add nothing to the first team. Or the complete waste of space that is Marcos Rojo, who frankly is the second coming of Johnny Evans Mistake.

I think it more likely than not that the sale will occur. And for between 3-400 million.

Ashley is an entrepreneur. That means risk taker. Risks like selling players and not replacing. Buying young rather than experienced players - I understand NUFC has the youngest squad in the top two divisions - and holding out for a few more million whilst hoping not to be relegated.
