Major Newcastle News Stories – 16th May 2007 – Bramble Leaving

Here are the major news stories associated with the Newcastle club for today – in no particular order of priority.


  • We have just heard Titus Bramble will leave St. James after 5 years at the club.
    There is a report on Newcastle’s official web site – that 5 players will be leaving the club – Titus Bramble, Craig Moore, Pavel Srnicek, Olivier Bernard and Oguchi Onyewu.
    No major surprises there – but the clear-out has started.
  • The major news today is about Sam’s appointment as new Newcastle United manager yesterday.
    We will learn a lot more this week – and quickly on who will be leaving Newcastle – with Michael Owen the highest priority in getting some answer from him.
    Here’s a good article by Luke Young from the Journal.
  • We have two articles today on Owen – and we think this issue will be resolved within a day or two. There are already some interesting comments from our readers on Owen – and whether he should stay.
  • Well – there are bound to be multiple stories on who Allardyce is after in the next few weeks.
    One today says we are after Bolton’s Nicky Hunt.
    That would be good – Nicky’s young and an ex England under 21 player – and up and coming.
    Would be a great buy – but will Bolton let him go (if it’s true)?
  • Lots of reports – as we would expect in the local papers today.
    Here’s a link to icnewcastle to get all the stories on yesterday and what may be happening

Those then – briefly – are the major news stories today – let us know your thoughts and opinions on these.

    No need to get anyone from Bolton. There is/are plenty of good footballers out there.
    1.Bramble and other deadwood leaving = good
    2.Sign quality (not necessarily star) = even better
    1+2= success
