Wijnaldum – Not Playing Champions League Would Be A Punishment

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 · 25 Comments

Newcastle are busy trying to negotiate a deal with PSV for Georginio Wijnaldum, but still have to agree a fee for a player who turned down French giants PSG last summer to stay in Holland.

And some in Holland are now wondering why he would now want to join Newcastle, who are not even playing in Europe and nowhere near the team that PSG have at the moment – and he turned them down last summer.

This Player Can Still Come Good For Newcastle

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 · 9 Comments

Two of Newcastle’s most injured players – two central defenders – Steven Taylor and Curtis Good both returned to training last Wednesday and both appear to be fit again – with Steve being out for six months with an Achilles injury,  and Good having been out since he made his debit for Australia in March of last year.

If both of them can keep fit, we may have two decent center-backs in the squad for the upcoming season.

Andre Breitenreiter was appointed manager of Schalke last month and replaced Roberto di Matteo, who resigned at the end of the Bundesliga season.

Schalke finished in 6th position and qualified for the Europa League, but the club fell short of a slot in the Champions League – which was the target and they had to finish in the top four to achieve that.
