Here are the major news stories associated with the Newcastle club for today – in no particular order of priority.
Major news is that Scott Parker does not want to leave Newcastle but seems to be being forced out by Sam Allardyce. This dominates the reports today.
- Strange news today being reported that Scott Parker does not want to leave Newcastle but is being forced out by Sam Allardyce – as his replacementÂ Joey Barton moves in from Manchster City. Both moves are said to be going through today with Scott getting $72,000 per week at West Ham. Well I guess they too have the money under private ownership. Don’t bother doing the calculation that’s $3.744M per year.
- News in the Telegraph Â that Alan Shearer thinks that David Beckham is too good for the LA Galaxy. We agree with that â€“ as we mentioned yesterday â€“ but itâ€™s hard to see how he can out of his contract now. Over here in the US they are making a very big deal of Beckham – but the Galaxy are also now concerned about Beckham continuing to play for England â€“ since they have lots of promotional events lined up for him. We think David decided on the Galaxy after McClaren dropped him from the England team â€“ a dumb move as it turns out â€“ and David thought his International career was over.
- News that both Tal Ben Haim and Mark Viduka will be joining Newcastle this week. We did run a story yesterday about Birmingham trying to snatch Viduka at the last moment â€“ but why would Mark want to join Brum? He also wants to keep his family settled in the North East â€“ so a move to Newcastle makes a lot of sense.. Both players are good buys for Newcastle and cost us â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦..nothing.Â 😀
- News that Bolton are trying to snatch Antoine Sibierski from under the noses of Wigan. Sammy Lee is desparate to sign players as he is losing a few of his own. Antoine should do very well at either club – and we wish him the very best.
