Player Gets New Deal But Little Chance Of Newcastle Future

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 · 26 Comments

It was always going to be touch and go as to whether Sammy Ameobi would sign the contract he has been offered by Newcastle,  after another so-so season last term for the local lad and younger bother of Shola.

But it looks like Steve McClaren doesn’t think Sammy will play too many games at Newcastle this season, as it seems he will be shipped out to a Championship club – with the two who are currently after Sammy being Wolves and Cardiff.

Important Transfer Meeting Planned Today At Newcastle

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 · 78 Comments

There is news in the Shields Gazette that Newcastle will hold an important Board Meeting today to assess their transfer options, with the club seeming to flounder in their attempts to bring is some of their top targets and not one player has been signed by Newcastle since the season ended 38 days ago.

There was a pledge at that time by the owner that money would be available and the team would be strengthened in the summer.

Newcastle would also be trying to win one of the cups next season for the first time in over eight years.

Newcastle Still In For Top International Defender

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 · 77 Comments

Abdelkader Jilani is the agent of Newcastle center-back target Aymen Abdennour, and he is doing his best to get as many clubs in Europe interested in his client as possible this summer, so there can be an auction – the fee goes up – and Jilani looks to get a huge pay-day for himself.

Sorry – I should have said  he is looking to get a very good deal for his client.

Newcastle Still In With Good Chance To Sign Austin

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015 · 14 Comments

30 year-old Billy Paynter is a friend of Charlie Austin’s who used to play with Austin while they were at Swindon Town together, and Billy has been exchanging texts with Charlie while the QPR striker is on his honeymoon.

It’s not too surprising that Charlie is saying he is still undecided as to which club he will join in the summer, and we see that as good news for Newcastle.

Former Newcastle Coach Surprisingly Sacked By Leicester City

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015 · 132 Comments

In what is really a surprise move, Leicester City have tonight fired former Newcastle coach Nigel Pearson – their manager – who seemed to pull off a miracle to save Leicester with an unbelievable run in the final quarter of the season that kept Leicester in the Premier League and they even finished above Newcastle in the league.

The Foxes won an amazing seven of their final nine games of the season and got 22 points from those games,  including a final game of the season 5-1 home win over relegated QPR.

That was 9 points more than Newcastle got in the final 19 league games of the season, and dare we say it – Leicester also beat us 1-0 in the FA Cup in early January.
