Nile Ranger: Blasted Newcastle fans for their boos

The 21-year-old risked the ire of supporters following the Magpies' 2-1 home defeat to Premier League strugglers Reading on Saturday.

The striker argued that Newcastle did not have to buy season tickets or pay the players' wages.

Ranger wrote: "Certain fans need to not come and support this team... Coming out to BOOO us.. Stay at home.. Don't need ur BOO's.... SAY NO MORE !!!!

"To all the fans. U are not forced to buy season tickets.. Or pay our wages.. Please remember that.

"If u are loyal fans.. Be with us.. When we are out there on the field.. Be the 12th man.. Don't come and BOO.. That aint going to help any1.

"Team is going through rough patch.. Last thing we need is fans against us.

"We are a TEAM u BOO 1 player... Ur booing all of us !!!"

The remarks sparked an angry response from Toon fans and could see Ranger disciplined by Newcastle boss Alan Pardew.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
