If this is true there's just nothing more to say about Ashley, what the fuck is the point of owning a football club and not wanting to compete, he's a billionaire anyway why does he want it, he doesn't need the money so surely just get out if you're not interested in the sport.

Something has gone on, that is almost certain but with the news that there is a replacement for Carr in Steve Nickson and an article from .cock that includes Rafa quotes, it could be that an ultimatum was set out and things have sped up.

This will be put to bed by Monday either way when people start turning up for pre-season testing and photos taken.

I think this may put things to bed for a bit.

From Rafa's own website. http://www.rafabenitez.com/web/in/whats-on/steve-joins-our-challeng...

I'd like to congratulate Steven Nickson and welcome him to his new role with the club. Steve has done an excellent job in the scouting department at Under-21s level and I am very confident that he will bring his many strengths to this new role, improving and building on our First Team recruitment strategy, as well as that at all levels throughout the club. COME ON TOONS!

thing is though
1) when was that written
2) if what i have been told is true, it may have nowt to do with his appointment but other issues
3) where the info came from is a reliable person, with conections within the clubs structure.
4) maybe it is all down to chairman interference, lack of funds being readily available or the slow nature of the transfer activity. A rabbit is off somewhere if the situation has become untennable, somewhere somebody has gone back on their words.

Not been on that site for ages as Mick Martin used to say, it was full of people kicking off about knitting or something.

Im going to have a scan. It's probably just the same people on every forum with different names for all I know. There used to be a few but I dont know if they're still going. The likes of Toontastic and footy mad.

You see what I don't get The Pyrry is that on the 14th of May you were asking for whispers or rumours regarding Newcastle United ? I replied with the bits I'd heard.

So in just under 6 weeks you've gone from wanting whispers/rumours about playing staff to being in a position to know about the employment status of the manager. Sorry for the Columboesque summing up but I smell bullshit .


The Pyrry - 14/5/2017 15:14

As it's pretty quiet on here with the season drawing to a close, has anyone heard any whispers or rumours re comings or goings etc ?

Even if the person was well connected, the original text said that Rafa had walked. There has been rumours of this for the last 4 days or something.

Local media have run articles where they say that if Rafa walks he can be sued and there's also been mention that he loves the politics and wouldn't walk away.

With certainty we can say there's issues and from that, any of us can make a story up to suit but Keegan walked a few times to get what he wanted and if Rafa feels that we're all being taken for a ride then he's well within his rights to be unhappy.

I just cant see the issue with signings. If there is a budget and Rafa wants to spend it then hunky dory.

Keggy it's up to you . I passed on something that I was told .Earlier on this year someone posted it was common knowledge inside the club Rafa was a dead man walking . Does thus back it up ? Can circumstances change ? I started a thread about whispers ^ rumours .. its the close season . People could well be in the know or maybe some just come out with bulls shit as you say . I couldn't give a monkeys what you think . I will not pass on names simple as that really
but I would not post something like that lightly

Is your source directly at Newcastle United ? If not how can they know the position of the manager or whether players are being texted by Rafa with him saying his position is untenable ? Is Rafa texting people to tell them he's texting players ? Is your source on the playing staff ?

Why wouldn't someone answer that question (are they at Newcastle or not ) unless they were caught in a lie ? It's so fucking basic. Simple rule in life, don't chat shit and if you do and you're called on it own up. "For your purposes that's your lot " . Fucking blagging crank.

The only operations manager mentioned throughout the whole of the NUFC site is Stephen Tickle and if he has been spouting then he could/should be out of a job if true.

I also checked that site Keggy and another poster posted something different. Leazes_End_Mag.


I'm not coming here to try and scare people and it may be proven to be untrue BUT I went to school with Paul Dummett (couple of years above him) so I know him and his group of mates and vice versa.

One of my best mates mam's works at Nestle with one of Dummett's best mates and she claims that Dummett's mate has told her that Dummett has rung him up today and said that Rafa has rang and apologised to all the players and that he's walked.

As I say, it could quite easily be untrue as this kid has said Dummett has claimed things in the past, some have been right, some have been wrong but just thought i'd pass the message on.


There's far too much look at me shite going around and as soon as someone starts a post with 'I dont want to ******** but' then the alarm bells should be ringing.

As I said earlier, it'll be put to bed either way on Monday.

Your quite right tnmw it was leazes end who started that one though seems to be have doing the rounds in the rags and in Twitter for days so there's clearly an agenda from someone or other. As for pyrry he more reminded me of Shintons ghost, a similar style, and funny how after I posted that he starts pming me about his school so may well have been on target. I thought Eddie Rutherford was Operations Manager or perhaps it was stadium manager my memory's a little fuzzy as I've had a few libations.

I dont know mate as I too have been abusing the delights of the weekend. I just checked the roll call of the last fans forum, so dont know the whole staff list.

As for that forum, I need to read more to get to know characters etc but from what ive read so far, many of them could be any from here with a few posting similar stuff to me, which worries me......

Keggy i was going to keep it quite civil but so far you have said i made it up and called me a blagging crank . You just sound like a lil bitch cos i wont divulge if the person works in the club or not ..............tough shit bonny lad. What i posted wasnt made up nor am i a blagging crank. I am not some schoolkid with nowt better to do nor am i someone who uses other boards, this is the only board i use and will cotinue to use.
I asked u some questions in pm to ascertain if you were the person i knew of, if you were that person if i told you, you could possibly understand why i would want to keep things to myself.

hope that helps

tooney your post re Dummet i also heard (saturday for the first time)

So why won't you tell us who they are and what their role is? If they didn't want people knowing they shouldn't have told people...

It's all bullshit.

The one about Dummett too... sometimes he's right, sometimes he's wrong. Well isn't that unique! Here's me thinking that happens to everyone throughout life. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Pyrry .

Any information is only as reliable as the source of that information . You come on a forum and start a thread proclaiming that you've been texted by someone who knows (that's KNOWS) that Rafa has gone and also KNOWS that Rafa has informed the players the situation is untenable. Then when that doesn't come to pass you say that person has again suddenly been informed and passed it on to you that he's merely threatened to go. If you don't expect to have to qualify the source of information that's in a position to know about the conversations between manager, owner, players and whatever the fuck Charnley and Barnes are, even slightly, you are a fucking idiot.

The other hypothesis is that there was never a source and it's just something you've read online via a forum , or twitter or any of the multitude of tabloids, or pub/post pub gossip and you've deliberately misrepresented that (or as it's better known BULLSHITTED) to try and look in the know . Now you just look like a chump. As we are now over 24 hrs since you first posted your info and the most powerful broadcasters/papers and internet sites in the land are none the wiser but you of course are .

Any person could say on any given day during the Ashley regime there is bad feeling , unrest or a spat gone on and it be believable or moments away from being proved right. You Pyrry have nothing more than that , you had nothing yesterday and you're just upset at being called on it. You can play it that it's because of the way you've been asked but initially Officemonkey asked the perfectly civil "So who are the connections and what are their roles?" you declined to answer , maybe it was a little too specific , I gave you the benefit of the doubt and asked
"Pyrry who's your source ? (Don't expect names or roles, general info will do)" again you gave what you had ...............nothing.

Whilst I agree they would have been, I just can't believe how quiet everyone is. In a long period of absolutely nowt happening, there's hardly been a dickie bird.

I've lost you a little toony.

Are you saying that even if the rumours were untrue,the rags would still see it as a story worth printing, and the fact that is absolutely nothing reported is what you find odd ?
