City boys we are here,sh*g your women and drink yo
When they got taken over a toon fan text me saying over the next 2 windows they would be spending £600m. Sent him a text last week asking when they are going to spend this money. Still awaiting a response
The most giddy set of fans in the whole League.
I think they had just been taken over when we played them at The Etihad last season,and some of them genuinely believed that they would get a result against City.
A 5-0 thumping sent them back home with their tail between their legs.
Boys vs men was the comparison that came to mind.

Their turnover is £140m and their wages are already at 80% of their turnover.

They are years away from spending big.

They need to build up about five years’ worth of new sponsors, amendments to St James’ Park to include new world class corporate areas and charge through the roof, increase their ticket prices to all fans (as there’s no real scope to expand St James’), manage to get themselves into the Champions League regularly and then going deep into the competition regularly so they are earning proper money before they’re spending big.

Spurs are currently a bigger threat to the title than Newcastle will be for at least 5 years and that’s only if City Liverpool Spurs Arsenal Chelsea and United all stand still and allow Newcastle to catch up and take over at least four of us. City United and Liverpool’s turnover are all at about £575m, it’s taken City 13 years to get to that level. Even if Newcastle eventually catch that figure in say 8 years, that doesn’t mean City United and Liverpool are going to stand still and not be at another level again. In the next five years, City and Liverpool will expand our stadiums, within 10 years United might have a new stadium.

Financial Fair Play (which Newcastle voted in favour of back in 2013!… and they were one of the Spiteful 9 who put their name to the letter to CAS to hold-up our ban from the CL) restricts spending power. It doesn’t matter how much money an owner has, it only matters how much money a club earns. The newer FFP rules will actually hinder Newcastle even further.

It will be interesting to see where they are come the 2030s though.

They'd been taken a few months before that. In fact they were taken over not long before we gave them a 4-0 thumping at St James' last December :-)

Leroy's neighborhood, by the monks !
Watched a bit of them. Looks well managed and should finish top 10, but lacking at least a creative midfielder and a class forward to challenge for 5-7 positions.
Can't help noticing again how good Bruno Guimares looks. Could have done a job for us with Gundogan in his final season and Bernardo wanting out since forever.
