I'm sure they stopped these yano! I was gutted when they stopped the massive half stottie filled with Chicken and Stuffing 

I have no idea I haven't been in the country since 2013...

I'd be gutted if they had stopped them.

Where you based? And yeah I'm positive I saw a tweet saying they'd been discontinued ages ago. Please say you've had a saveloy dip from Dickson's, now those are godly!

I'm in Perth, Western Australia, have been since 2012 (went back in 2013 for a friends wedding and then my own).

Yeah I've had a saveloy from Dickson's, the wife also loved the coronation chicken sandwich and massive pizza slice from the Grainger Market.

So Wood starts as expected, quite like the look of our starting line up today, not sure on Longstaff starting again though, but hope he has a great game like the rest of them, must win today 🤞🏻

I've not weighed in on the Lascelles bashing that's come up on here previously but even I have to admit now that he's a liability. He should be an absolute force at the back and if being a Premier League CB was about winning towering headers he would be but the man is as much as a footballer as my Nan and she's been buried for 12 years. He is shocking!

We were very loose with the ball far too often under no pressure most of the time. Watford sat back, even after going a goal down. Obviously, the plan was to have a go in the last 15 mins and hopefully not be too far adrift by that point.

That was a massive game and I'm so disappointed.

Lads... my kids have been climbing all over me all day, so i never had chance to write earlier, but this was forming in my mind... i was ready to burst your bubble at beating little old Watford... who, it's well worth remembering, have only not lost 5 of their 18 matches before today, beating rubbish teams like Villa, Man U, Norwich and Everton, and drawing with the Toon...... even Brentford beat them, and we weren't able to beat Burnley, Norwich or Newcastle, so that shows you something ;)

And then they got a late equaliser anyway!!

Oof... and yes, i have to say, the Wood signing is.... curious, let's say! 

Still, at least you get to play Boro next year, plus the Mackems if you and they are lucky... and you should smash the Championship, which will be fun... and we only have to finish above two other teams now... so it's a win-win in my book 👍

Sooner Lascelles buggers off the better, sorry but he's a clown. Two left feet and no footballing brain, he's meant to be our captain, a leader, he's spineless and shouldn't be a captain of this club.

The difference in ability between Trippier and the rest of our squad bar Joelinton is massive. He looked calm and composed, the majority of others run round like headless chickens.

Good goal from Maxi, couple decent runs but other than that he was poor. Just beat your man and whip a cross in. 

We need two up top, I noticed Wood was very isolated, won a lot of flick ons but there was no one near him to feed off these and carry on the attack. We need another striker but obviously the glaring issue right now is we have no back one, Two centre halfs needed. I've been patient but the Saudis need to blow a decent chunk of money now on two new centre halfs, get a decent midfielder in on loan and hopefully a left back or im telling you now we are going down.

Maxi can't cross for Toffee, if we don't sign another striker then he should be played in the number 10 role behind Wood until Wilson is back and we can play two up top.

Big Changes Needed.

Makes me feel a bit better that Sunderland threw away a 1-0 lead against Accrington as Accrington were also down to 10 men, but I’m glad @samhardyhad some cheap pints, see you next season 😂

Worth a look, the equaliser is an absolute shocker 🤦‍♂️

Pretty sure Rafa will be regretting not coming back to Newcastle, he’s on the brink.

Also not Newcastle related but my god James Ward Prowse is unreal at free kicks 😮

Conceded the exact same goal on Tuesday night. At the moment the opposition are more of a threat from our corners than we are.

He isn’t looking great at the moment, was never going to work for him at Everton, I still love him though.

Didn’t even have to wait a year @Rich 😉

I knew this would come back to haunt me, I was waiting for it 😂

I still rate him, everything went against him at Everton, doesn’t help when the fans hate you like they do.

Everton as a club is a mess. I hoped Rafa would work out but he hardly had a chance did he, hated from the start and given no backing. Reports Martinez is the running ffs. 

Loved hearing Anfield singing his name again, top level shithousery and some support I'm sure. 

I just hoped it would work out for him as we all know he's loves the city. 

Howe will be sacked after the next defeat and Rafa will be back at the Toon 😛

You’re right about Everton being in a mess but he should never have been appointed and has shown nothing since leaving Liverpool to deserve to be backed.

I made this post last year and stand by it. His career as a manager was over as soon as he left Liverpool where he obviously did a great job and at Valencia as well.

Rafa’s record since leaving Liverpool.

  • Sacked by Inter after less than a year for being shit.
  • Hounded out by Chelsea after less than a year.
  • Took Napoli backwards and then Sarri replaced him and did a much better job.
  • Lasted about 3 months at Real Madrid.
  • Took Newcastle down (plenty of time to save them) and then won the Championship with the biggest budget the division has ever seen.
  • Admitted his career was over by going to China.

He has absolutely played Newcastle fans like a fiddle and the best thing is they genuinely believe he 

A) Loves the club.

B) Would be the man to turn them around now.

Two more things to add to the list now, he very nearly took his club in China down, and now can’t be far off the worst manager in Everton’s history and topping it all off he alienated and got rid off their best player to a club with their biggest rivals’ ultimate legend as manager.

I understand why Liverpool fans are willing to defend him and to some extend Newcastle fans but come on there is no defending that record. He gets jobs on name alone plus his agent and no doubt another Premier League club will come calling later in the year for him to wreck.

Moral victory for the bees at Anfield. Snatched at our chances a bit, unfortunately, but could never really expect much from there. Jon Moss didn't do much today really, didn't have to, but i definitely don't want to see him again - awful ref.

Man U next, looking forward to that!

Thankfully only one more game, Leeds next week before the transfer window ends. New centre half needed in before Leeds and then we need as many decent bodies as we can get. I think we down but let's try go down fighting

Not sure you will go down, reckon howe will turn it around, just need a few wins as their are a few clubs down there on low points. Burnley and Norwich are down, between us, you and Watford for that last place

People writing off Burnley far too soon. 2 points behind Norwich and Newcastle, with 3 games in hand on Newcastle and 4 games in hand on Norwich…  One win and they’re out of the bottom three. And never underestimate Dyche.

On a completely unrelated note, Aleksandr Mitrovic has already scored 27 league goals this season 😳

It was. He wasn't the best for us in the Prem but if trusted more in that championship season we could have had a quality player on our hands right now

We desperately need a second striker all be it Mitrovic is in same mold to Wood, to get onto Woods flick ons.

These two weeks are massive to get new signings in but think we will continue to struggle in the market
