There are a number of stories in the news today regarding Newcastle but nothing particularly new on the transfer front.
We are still waiting to hear of Sam can persuade Drago from Sevilla to join us.
Once the Drago affair is settled one way or the other we wonder how many more players Sam will bring in. Including Drago (if we can get him) we think two in total. So that would mean Sam has brought in nine players if that turns out to be true.
“Another day, another county and another 9 miles done. It’s the coolest that it has been for ages and it looks like it’s raining over Tiverton 8.5 miles away. Thanks to today’s new sponsors. The current total is unbelievable!”
Mark finishes this coming weekend and we’ll run this story for the rest of the week. We admire Mark’s guts and courage greatly – he’s doing a fineÂ job and it reflects so well on him andÂ Newcastle United – because Mark is an avid fan.
Here’s Mark’s web site where he has a daily log and all kinds of good information about his fabulous effort. If you can contribute to Mark’s efforts please do so at this just giving site
Mark Allison – Mark enter Devons – nearly there
Stephen Carr – hopefully getting back to his best
Jose Enrique – Good support system set up at the club and headed by Albert Luque
Ivaca Dragutinovic – Decides today or tomorrow on Newcastle offer
The first topic of discussion is what should Newcastle’s team be for Saturday. We’ll see how this goes and then decide for our web update that we should be doing later this month if this will suffice for general discussion points or whether we need to do something more.Â We also put Newcaste United’s winning FA Cup teamÂ in there from 1955 and asked readers to name the players – haven’t seen any response to that yet. We know who they are – but that’s only because some of us are so old and actually saw the gameÂ Â Â 😀
