Newcastle Concerned About Charlie Austin Injury

Sunday, July 5th, 2015 · 32 Comments

Things are heating up with Newcastle’s pursuit of QPR striker Charlie Austin, but there’s some new news tonight that the reason Newcastle are only willing to pay £12M for Austin and will not meet the £15M demanded by QPR Director of Football Les Ferdinand is because of his long-standing shoulder problem.

The report is in the Mail but it’s hard to believe.

Reports – Multiple Signings To Be Made By Newcastle

Sunday, July 5th, 2015 · 66 Comments

Since Newcastle have had no success so far this season,  it would be good if we can do a double signing next week,  before we play our first pre-season game at Gateshead on Friday night.

And we reported earlier today we have  bid 15M for Charlie Austin, and with Sunderland having dropped out of the race for Georginio Wijnaldum Newcastle are in pole position to sign him.

Newcastle Cannot Let This Player Leave This Summer

Sunday, July 5th, 2015 · 24 Comments

The latest news today coming out of French Daily L’Equipe today is that Liverpool are moving in for Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko.
