    defo said 30 tho, but he was laughing when he said it. Maybe just talking the place up for the pommy interviewer.

    Should work. Would be hard to distinguish the cardboard cutouts from the current crowd as the western stand is full of them already

    Lost in translation, maybe.

    the Heskey shirts selling out is getting better coverage on The Guardian than The Newcastle Herald

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2...-heskey-shirts

    it's on the front page of a newspaper site on the other side of the world but not in our town because of this stupid feud with Dillon and HSG

    I think that Jets/HSG have been burnt enough times by Dillon in the past and that it's reached this stage where they have a total media ban on him. This isn't just the Bridges incident where he has deliberately tried to make a big story out of nothing. He seems to try to put a negative spin on situations/incidences in order to paint the club in a bad way. Gee I even remember back when Nicky Carle wanted to go overseas with Con's blessings and he lambasted Con and the club in the Herald for "letting" their star player go. Yes, his job is a reporter but quite often he will write something and then keep re-hashing it over and over instead of just moving on.....this is what I think annoys management, players and supporters the most.

    That is straight from the Newcastle Herald employee manual.

    Write a paragraph on new stuff and cut and past 4 or 5 paragraphs from previously stories that have the slightest connection.

    The house next door to mine is getting demolished and like a lot of houses in the 1940s it had newspapers under the lino. I had a look at these as there were a lot of interesting stories related to the war. The thing that struck me about these papers were that there were a lot of stories that were just two paragraphs long. They told you what you needed to know and that's it, didn't try to pad it out with useless waffle. Papers had a lot less pages back then too. We could learn from the past.

    A newpaper reporter should be a reporter, not an opionist. Report what is happening at the club, not give your opinion of what you would like people to think what is happening at the club.

    The club needs to look at the bigger picture here and realise they are doing more harm then good with this no herald stance, like it or not the herald has been one of the better newspaper for HAL coverage, continuing this feud only hurts the club and supporters in the long run.

    Lawl

    Can't see it happening unfortunately. Sla, Blackmac maybe but with qman, NBUnited on a middle eastern tour and Fish a 90 min drive from airport it's going to be hard to get anyone there.
    Don't think they are expecting an ADP-level airport reception at 605am and most people who support the team over 2 hours drive away.
