2nd van Gaal dig

Having already wondered why we aren`t high enough in the Premier League table, Alkmaar manager Louis van Gaal has had a second swipe at the club by suggesting Martins should be playing for a Champions League club:

'When you look at Obafemi Martins, in my eyes he is one of the best strikers at the moment in this league and maybe Europe as well. He is flexible, he is fast, he can shoot with both feet and he is a good header of the ball. He has got talent, but he is not really playing at a top European club at the moment. Maybe Newcastle are a top club, but they have not had success in the last few years.'

Where are you a big club!!!!! and you've not won anything for a few years!!! When was the last thing you won? 1950's wasn't it, a big club you're havin a laff, all you are, are the Barcodes from Sid James Park, and nothing else, ahahah

I think having the third biggest crowd in the premiership and with 54000 fans every home game makes us one of the bigger clubs in the league along with quality players Owen, Martins, Parker,and Duff.Granted we havent won anything for a long time but with the likes of Man Usa and chelski winning everything who are funded alot better than Nufc it makes the task alot harder.I just hope we do a number on AZ Alkmaar tonight and shut the cloggy git Van Gaal up for a change,He should remember he's not at Barca now the T@ssa.Oh and by the way its ST James Park.

No you plonker it's Sid James Park, because you might get better crowds, but there's only one team in newcastle isn't there, most other teams have to contend with 2 or more teams in one city for their fan base, how much have you spent over the years on players, so dont give me that crap, that other teams get funded better, your board are to blame, which brings me back to your ground name, Sid James park coz the place is a right CARRY ON.
