I miss The Tuesday Club and do actually get quite annoyed they've not come back. They seemed to tire of it because it was the same old things but that was with Wenger. They've not done anything during Arteta's reign. 

 

Mirroring the manager, perhaps?

Has Gary Neville taken his eye off the ball?

 

'Enough', said Gary Neville this week as he (once again) attacked Boris Johnson. The ex-footballer is no stranger to attacking the Tories: in the past few months, the former England right-back has dubbed Johnson a 'liar', bizarrely suggested that the PM is a 'spaghetti bolognese of a man' and accused the Government of 'incompetency'. 

 

Neville is clearly a busy man: as well as his day job talking about football, he is listed as a director for 56 firms

Even football fans aren't safe from Neville's bit-part political punditry. During England’s Euro 2020 semi-final win this summer, when the whole country was (briefly) united for once, he interjected to suggest that Gareth Southgate, the England manager, had shown more leadership than the Prime Minister. But while Neville's career as a Tory attack dog appears to be taking off, is he in danger of taking his eye off the ball elsewhere?

 

Mr S only asks because one of the many, many companies which list Neville as a director has failed to file its accounts on time. As a result, the curiously-named 'The man behind the curtain (Leeds) limited' could soon be struck off as it passed its deadline at the end of September to file its accounts for the previous year. The firm lists Neville as one of two directors alongside chef Michael O'Hare, who runs Leeds' only Michelin-starred restaurant under the same name.

 

Neville is clearly a busy man: as well as his day job talking about football, he is listed as a director for 56 firms. Some are involved in hotels, developing building projects, education and management consultancy. Not all these firms remain active, but even so, having dozens of business interests is surely enough to keep Neville's hands full.

 

Perhaps it is time for Neville to take a break from burnishing his comradely credentials to get his own house in order?

 

hahahaha. I'm trying to comprehend anyone being apparently annoyed at an ex footballer (or really anyone) ripping into Boris. Just try making sense of that first paragraph, '(once again)', 'liar', ''bizarrely', 'incompetency'. The indignation. 

 

also...get a photo that makes Gary Neville look as much of a lunatic as possible will you.

The Spectator is just a piss-poor Tory fanzine for idiots and sociopaths. It has as much journalism and intelligence within it's pages as a Domino's Pizza menu.

 

Shit, we're going to get moved to the Politics & Current Affairs folder.

The ref at Selhurst Park is in his debut top flight game. You'd get short odds on it being his last. He's been appalling.

 

He really has, lord knows what was going through his head for some of the decisions.

 

No complaints on the result, as Palace were dreadful and Villa took their chances well.

 

Plus side was we left early after the second goal, so eneded up missing the big scrum to escape on the train (2 out of 3 local stations closed).

Would be so good if Newcastle could stay where they are in the league and get relegated. Will be interesting to see if any of these big name players they keep getting linked with will join if they're in the Championship.

They’ve got 6 points so maybe another 30 to be safe, that’s a lot to get for such a rubbish team

As for the transfer window, I doubt Mbappe & Haaland fancy signing up for a relegation struggle at Newcastle in the middle of winter

They haven't played against both Man City and Liverpool at all yet and have to face Chelsea once. So let's assume those 5 games aren't going to yield a win.

 

That means they have to get 10 wins from 20 so winning every other game.

 

If they lose their next two games (both at home) then I don't think it will matter who they buy in January.

 

Norwich and Burnley.
