Jacko and others on here are lauded like some god like figures .People would like her posts if she said the moon was made of cheese. Fact.

Even the Morecambe thread she had to mention her beloved Newcastle. 

Newcastle are about as relevant in the English game as St Mirren are in Scotland, complete non entity.

Why they have to be regularly referenced or jibes about Sunderland is beyond me.

 

spot on pal

Are you for real? People have different opinions which gives them the right to support someone they believe is being hard done too but to then turn it into a slating off of a poster and then go into clique mode along with posting clear untruths is plain stupid.

I think that's a fair point.

And facts are important. Views and opinions vary, as they will, but facts don't change.

Bruce, like all Premier League managers, undoubtedly splits opinion, but as far as I can see from the original post days ago he did appear to want to help lower league clubs while recognising that his first duty is closer to home.

Personally, he isn't my cup of tea.  I'm unsure why. It's funny how you take a like or instant dislike to a manager. He seems to have had a lot of clubs in a very short space of time but has had a good career, no doubt about that.

Is he a better writer than manager? Didn't he write some books about management?

What is the untruth ?

There is definitely a clique. Plenty of others have alluded to this on here i am not in a minority of one.

If people think i was hard on Bowers fair enough, for me it's a personal opinion , NOT abuse that in the main local radio commentary is awful. I was shot down in flames yet Blakeman was called all sorts, only i was taken to task. 

A forum is meant to be free speech, within reason, abuse, homophobia, racism etc.

It seems though whether the topic is Football, Covid, BLM, unless you fit the narrative of a select few you are called uneducated or other slurs just because you have a different opinion.

It is quite patronising .

I don’t actually see how it is patronising to point out that you were mistaken about Bruce’s signings when you were using them as a stick to beat him with. I’ll have to check with my clique to see if I’m wrong about that!!!

Jean and others aren't lauded on here, they are highly respected posters. She and others have earned that respect over many years of posting.

If Newcastle are a non entity in English Football with one of the top 5 attendances then god help the other 87 league clubs. When you start posting a bit more sensibly maybe you will earn some respect too.

I'm referring to trophies or actually doing anything of note.

My crowd is bigger than your crowd means nothing, if it did Vale would be guaranteed top 6 every season and not lose to Morecambe and Macclesfield etc.

Because my dad took me as a kid and it is the main part of my social life.

We don't expect or feel entitled to do anything unlike Newcastle who purport to be a massive club who deserve more for the fans.

Newcastle are huge, so are Leeds, Sheff Wed, Forest, Everton, Villa ,Derby you could argue.

All these clubs say that they are big clubs, West Ham another for the list.

The respective trophy cabinets for all of these clubs show diddly squat for billions of pounds spent.

At Vale i don't feel entitled to anything, we haven't got the proverbial pot to pee in and life of a lower league fan is far more enjoyable in my opinion than some tourist filming a penalty to put on Snapchat instead of actually celebrating the goal.

All of these so called ' big clubs ' have huge fan bases and their away support for distances travelled by both Newcastle and Sunderland is phenomenal , however they meander from 10th to 17th without any hope of doing anything in the closed shop of the elite top 6.

Newcastle in March ? Had an absolutely golden opportunity to reach an FA Cup semi final and Bruce played 10 behind the ball at home to Man City, they had one golden chance for Gayle i think and went out with a whimper having barely crossed the half way line. That is poor beyond belief as he had no faith in his players to beat them. Think City lost 10 games last season including to the likes of Southampton who are a similar mid to lower table team. Can't comment what the fans thought of that display. 

Yet you hear fans saying a club our size should be winning cups, Leagues etc.

I support Vale because it is my local club and i have a very good social life out of it ( or did pre-covid ) i do not feel entitled or expect to win anything. No Vale fan i know suffers from delusions of grandeur, that can't be said of Newcastle fans nor fans of some of the other clubs i have mentioned.

Darren, you support Vale for the same reason I support Newcastle - it is your local team.  It will be 60 years in March since I saw my first game at SJP and I still regard them as my team.  If someone was bad mouthing Vale you would jump to their defence.  Why am I not allowed to do the same for Newcastle?  You ask why I make jokes about Sunderland - for the same reason you make jokes about Stoke. 

I became a Vale fan through marriage and have had a season ticket ever since.  But that hasn't meant that I have lost my support for Newcastle.  And this commonly held belief in the media that Newcastle fans have this feeling of entitlement is absolute garbage.  The fans know the club is aiming for mediocrity each season and while Ashley is there, they know that's all they'll get.  But look at the 10 years before Ashley arrived and you will see that the club is capable of so much more than they are achieving at the moment.  Newcastle fans feel now like Vale fans did under our previous owner.  They don't ask for a club that wins everything, they just ask for a club that tries and under Ashley it hasn't.

Some very valid points there. I don't know much about them ( obviously ) as my gaffe on Almiron and Joelinton proved.

We'll agree to disagree a bit about the entitlement part, i've often heard fans on the radio bemoaning that they should be this they should be that.

Sadly now the footballing world revolves around 6 or 7 at the top with the rest vying for 8th to 17th. That isn't the fault of Newcastle, Southampton, West Ham or whoever, just the riches at the top echelons are ridiculous.

I can't or won't speculate on how a club averaging about 50 odd thousand has stagnated because i don't know the ins and outs.

I know the animosity towards Ashley but he has spent a fortune recently just the two aforementioned players and Callum Wilsom is 80 million , so he has put money in ?

I do feel that they have become a nothing club along with the other midtable teams, unfortunately the Philip Albert and Ginola glory days seem a distant memory. 

And for good measure, i'm not even sure how it came about but i was in the Newcastle end when they murdered Stoke 4-0 in a League cup tie at the Victoria Ground. Can't imagine it was pay on the night but i was in the away end as Ginola tore the full back a new one. They had a song about Philip Albert to the tune of Rupert the Bear !!!

What i should have really said was that a club the size of Newcastle with its massive support, has massive potential to be one of the top clubs in the country. Its all down to how it's run and like us in some our of recent previous owners that has not been run very well.

I was at that Stoke game, Darren. A hugely entertaining evening made even better by the attempts by Stokies at work the following day to justify their performance!!
