Here are the major news stories associated with the Newcastle club for today – in no particular order of priority.
The major news story link us with Frank Queudrue – the former Middlesbrough left-back and again with Eidur Gudjohnsen.
We have also brought back the funny football quotes – by popular demand – after a one day absence.
- More and more news in the press that we are being linked with former Middlesbrough left back Franck Queudrue. Looks like Franck would be very willing to move back to the North East and play for Newcastle. He is at odds with new Fulham manager Lawrie Sanchez and the reports suggest his wife is unsettled in London. This could happen but also expect another left back – like Nicky Shorey to be brought in also.
- We think it’s time that Phil Gartside stop conducting war in the press with Sam Allardyce. Some of his latest comments come across as very childish and we think it’s about time that Phil moved on. It’s really not doing him any good to look so petulant in the press.
Sam and Phil
- We are again being linked with Eidur Gudjohnsen – this time by his father and agent Arnor Gudjohnsen. His father is obviously trying to increase the interest of the Newcastle club by saying that his son loved playing for Big Sam at Bolton and looks up to him. Not sure what’s going to happen with this one – but it certainly looks like the Gudjohnsens are warming up to Newcastle – so to speak.
