Reports – Multiple Signings To Be Made By Newcastle

Sunday, July 5th, 2015 · 65 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.

They are supposed to have overtaken Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea – but give me a break – those last three clubs are not even after Moussa and if he went to one of those clubs – he wouldn’t get many games at all.

It Could Have Been A Lot Worse For Newcastle This Summer

Sunday, July 5th, 2015 · 167 Comments

One good thing about last season – and there weren’t many – was that three of the players we brought in last summer did very well for the club, in what was another  terrible season for us.

Daryl Janmaat (53%) was our Player of the Season,  with young Ayoze Perez (18%) the runner-up and Jack Colback (16%) in third place,  with over 5,000 readers having voted.

Newcastle Move In With £15M Bid For Charlie Austin

Saturday, July 4th, 2015 · 17 Comments

The Express is reporting on Sunday that Steve McClaren thinks the good relationship he formed with Charlie Austin when Steve was at QPR for three months two years ago,  could tip the balance Newcastle’s way in being able to sign the in-demand QPR striker, who is still on honeymoon after being married last weekend.
