Review – Newcastle Have Done Well – But Still Need More Players

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015 · 28 Comments

Newcastle have done well so far this season in getting two top players through the door – Georginio Wijnaldum and Aleksandar Mitrovic – and they cost £27M for the two, and we should be able to get Chancel Mbemba signed by the end of the week once the FA gives approval for his visa.

That’s three good players through the door for around £35.5M – but we still need three more good players for it to be the summer transfer window we were all hoping for.

Why Georginio Wijnaldum Signed For Newcastle

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015 · 16 Comments

Georginio Wijnaldum has spoken today in the Shields Gazette, and he credits head coach Steve McClaren and goalkeeper Tim Krul as the two people who persuaded him to join Newcastle.

Gini is comfortable with the way McClaren plays the game, after knowing him when he managed FC Twente a couple of times, and Tim Krul has been trying to get him to Newcastle for a number of years now.

Well – it’s all paid of and this classy young player is now a Newcastle player.

Newcastle Considering Part Exchange Deal For Charlie Austin

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015 · 28 Comments

There were reports last night that Newcastle would be bidding for QPR striker Charlie Austin this week to try to get the 26 year-old on Tyneside, and there’s new news tonight in the Mail that Newcastle may consider trying to get Austin in a part exchange deal.

The Newcastle player mentioned is Haris Vuckic, the Slovenian International who turns 23 next month, has one year left on his contract and has never really fulfilled the enormous promise he had when Newcastle signed him in January 2009 from Domzale as a 16 year-old.
