Saturday, July 4th, 2015 · 49 Comments

It’s not always easy to go in front of 1.000 people in a ballroom and give a one hour presentation on your stuff, but when you an executive at a company, that’s part of the job and it’s what you are expected to do.

In the real world of business, you are also expected to go and talk with customers and be the voice of the company to them.

New Player Sets Sights On First Team Place Next Season

Saturday, July 4th, 2015 · 31 Comments

We watched Karl Darlow’s nufcTV interview yesterday, and the 24 year-old came over very well – and he’s positive but also down to earth.

It will be a big challenge for the goalkeeper who played 111 times for the Nottingham Forest first team, and 18 other first team games while on loan at Walsall and Newport County.

Karl will now go up against Tim Krul and Rob Elliot to be the number one at Newcastle United in the coming season.

We reported yesterday that one of Newcastle’s targets this summer –  25-year-old Yevhen Konoplyanka – who is a Ukrainian International winger who was at Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk,  has agreed to sign for Sevilla.

The news was announced on the Sevilla web-site yesterday and it depends on the free agent passing his medical.

Leicester Could Beat Newcastle To Charlie Austin

Saturday, July 4th, 2015 · 29 Comments

Leicester are after QPR striker Charlie Austin and put in a bid of £12M for him in the last day or two, which was turned down, but they are reported to be ready to go back in with a higher offer to get their man.

Newcastle seem to be waiting in the wings unwilling to bid that kind of money for the man who scored 18 goals in only 36 appearances last season.

Steve McClaren Could Go After His Former Striker At Derby

Friday, July 3rd, 2015 · 95 Comments

If Newcastle cannot get some of their top striker targets through the door this summer don’t be too surprised if Steve McClaren goes after his former striker at Derby County – 26 year-old Scottish International Chris Martin.

Chris was born in Beccles, Suffolk and joined his home town club Norwich City back in 1998 as a 9 year-old and came through the ranks at Norwich.

Newcastle Tracking Reading Central Midfielder

Friday, July 3rd, 2015 · 123 Comments

It looks like Derby County have beaten Newcastle to Tom Ince, but it’s not clear to us if he was even a target, although the Magpies have been linked with him in a number of reports this summer.

There is news today of another Championship player we may be interested in, and that’s Reading’s young central midfielder Aaron Tshibola, who we assume Steve McClaren may know about after his last two seasons in the Championship with Derby County.
