Brinkmanship Continues At Newcastle

Monday, August 3rd, 2015 · 40 Comments

Newcastle United target Charlie Austin will line up against Charlton Athletic this weekend if he is fit,  and by playing he could get injured and risk his big move – probably to Newcastle United before the end of the month.

But with QPR not getting any bids that have been acceptable to them for Charlie they are ready to go ahead and play their two transfer targets – Charlie Austin and Leroy Fer in the Championship – starting this Saturday at Charlton.

Mysterious Report – Newcastle Have Bid For Honduran Winger

Monday, August 3rd, 2015 · 146 Comments

There is a report in Honduras on that is saying that Newcastle have made a £6M bid for Anderlecht winger 22 year-old Andy Najar, who has played 31 times for Honduras and made his debut for them back in September of 2011 coming on as a sub in the second half against Colombia.

The story is being reported in the UK by What Culture.

Andy started his career over here in the US with DC United, and came through their Youth Academy but decided to play for Honduras where he was born, rather than having to wait to receive his US citizenship so he could then play for the United States.

Newcastle After Another Dutch International Midfielder

Monday, August 3rd, 2015 · 92 Comments

Newcastle were linked with 21 year-old Feyenoord winger Jean-Paul Boetius last month, and the lad is a very highly rated player who usually plays on the left wing.

We are expecting Newcastle to still try to sign three players this summer – a striker, a midfielder and a defender – and with Newcastle having difficulty agreeing a fee for Marseilles winger Florian Thauvin,  maybe this lad would be a good alternative.

Newcastle’s Top Youngster Has Skills Galore

Monday, August 3rd, 2015 · 25 Comments

Here is a video produced by FFDTV online and is doing the rounds showing what good control Rolando Aarons has – we just hope Newcastle can keep this lad fit this season – he can score goals for us, create chances and get some points for us.

My memory’s fading just a little bit these days, but I think that’s how I was playing when I was about 20.

First Eight Games Very Tough For Newcastle

Monday, August 3rd, 2015 · 122 Comments

In the first eight games of the season we play each of the top four clubs  in the league table last season – the two Manchester clubs, Chelsea and Arsenal – and that’s a really difficult start for us after we finished last season like a team headed for the Championship.

In fact we play six of the top eight teams in the league last season in those first eight games with Southampton and Swansea our first two games.

Lyon President Quotes Massive Newcastle Offer For Thauvin

Monday, August 3rd, 2015 · 27 Comments

Newcastle have had a lot of dealings with Lyon’s outspoken President Jean Michel Aulas over the last few years, and one of them was a couple of years ago when we were trying to buy his striker Bafe Gomis in the days when Joe Kinnear was the Director of Football at Newcastle.

Last summer we were also after striker Alexandre Lacazette.

It turned out that Bafe went nowhere that summer, but saw out the last year of his contract and signed for Swansea last summer, and he’s done OK at the south Wales club.
