    You might be able to get some good money for Sissoko after yesterday's performance.

    I actually wondered if it was another family member.

    Because he sure as hell didn't play like the Sissoko I've seen in stripes.

    It's crazy money for a player who looks like he could be good if he wasn't a prick

    I'm beginning to see these periodic excursions into the second division in a positive light.

    PS: Rafa out, etc.

    I'd like to nominate Diame's equaliser at Brighton tonight for fluke goal of the decade.

    Not complaining, mind.

    I even saw Rafa smile after the game tonight.

    You're not kidding.

    I was at the Leeds game, and the last-minute equaliser was massive let-down. There may or may not have been a teensy bit of pagga in the stands as a result.

    Well, that's NUFC for you.

    Twenty-four hours to celebrate a promotion.

    Then the club gets scooped up in an international tax and VAT fraud enquiry; the MD is arrested (no complaints here, mind); and the sagging prospect of possible future punishment from the FA on top.

    Just another day in the life.

    Typical Newcastle United.

    Reminds me of the Mayor Quimby quote
    " Cant we have one meeting that doesnt end up with a decision to dig up a dead body?"

    Fair dos to Rafa. Not many top level managers would have taken the challenge or be humble enough to follow a team into relegation, specially straight from managing arguably the biggest club in the world.

    Hopefully he'll stick to his guns and leave if Ashley doesn't dig into his pockets in the summer. I don't think many fans would blame him for leaving in those circumstances either.

    I think he will stay if given a wedge of cash- and I think Ashely will give them a big slab of cash - he has gone down twice due to short sighted decisions- surely he is not pig headed enough to do it again......He will never attract someone of Rafas calibre ever again

    I will not be there, but this season has seen a foodbank collection point at the Strawberry outside the ground of late -will be there again this Saturday. It is fucking criminal that we have to do this in the 21st century, utterly fucking sickening. I will be putting soemthing in my local one this weekend anyway.

    Does this happen anywhere else at games ?
