Has the word panache ever been used before to describe a Warburton side?

Warburtons Panache.

Wow.

People are desperate to shoehorn race debates into anything these days.

I'm not doing a line by line of every chairman in the league. Obviously some are cunts and have treated their clubs terribly. Though I do wish you were right and that was what BK was known for.

Look I'm not accusing anyone on here of racism. This idea that Levy is tight with money is one that's taken hold across the nation, and people here are just parroting it without thinking about its roots. My view is that it’s a lazy view that’s been applied because of a couple of key events and then stuck because it conforms to a longstanding stereotype of Jews being tight or good with money… And Daniel Levy sounds Jewish and is Chairman of the “Jewish” club. So after a couple of deals like the Bale one, he developed a reputation as a hard negotiator and then the stereotype has stuck.

But the reality is he’s no more “tight” or a “harder negotiator” than most other Chairmen, except those ones in possession of ridiculous levels of wealth. Levy’s just not that rich. You know how it goes, people have massive confirmation bias and ignore facts that don’t align to their view of reality. So Levy spunks £32m on Sissoko, a ludicrously shite player at a ludicrously high price, negotiated horribly on the last day of the season, yet people still think Levy is tight and some master negotiator. He could even go do something idiotic like spend £40m on Ross Barkley with 12 months to go on his contract, and in 2 months there’d still be posts on here about him describing him as tight.

Frankly I’m surprised you don’t see it. It’s not like we live in some post-racist society where some people don’t hold negative views or stereotypes about Jews.


I'm out. I've got a Klan meeting to attend anyway.

Can see Newcastle really struggling this year.

Championship team with an ultra negative cheque-book manager.

Fingers crossed!

I'd sooner have a proper defender as defensive cover and a proper midfielder as midfield cover. It's been 4 years now, we can do better.

No mate. You asked for another chairman know for being a tight arse so I gave you four. Whether you've enlightened me and brought my confirmation bias to my attention is beside the point.
