Newcastle To Get Busy In Transfer Market


With the appointment with Kevin Keegan starting to sink in – well at least a little – you can bet there are big meetings planned at St. James’ Park starting tomorrow, concentrating on who’s available in the transfer market.

Richard Dunne – in dispute with Man City over contract

There are only a short 2 weeks left in the January transfer window and we feel certain that Kevin will want to bring at least 3-4 new players in before February comes around.

One player we reported on earlier today is center-back Richard Dunne, who Kevin put on the right tracks at Manchester City. Early in Richard’s career he was a bit of a party-goer and he was told in no uncertain terms by Keegan to buckle down or be shipped out.

To Richard’s credit he’s since become one of the best center-backs in the Premiership. We wonder of it would be possible for Kevin to get him to Newcastle.   😀

Kevin will probably not ship too many players out until he’s had a chance to look at what he’s inherited. We’re also sure he’ll get a lot of help from Chris Mort on building the youth system and scouting system at the club. The last time he wasn’t too interested (it seemed) in anything but the first team. and even dissolved the Reserve Team at one point.

But we’re sure Kevin understands this is even a bigger job than last time. But he will sleep well tonight knowing the Toon Army, throughout the world, is behind him and willing him onto success.

He can be sure of that.

Comments very welcome.

    Richard Dunne would be a great buy…

    I just hope we do get a few players just to keep the fans happy, though todays line up looks pretty decent to me.

    I believe that Christophe Metzelder, Daniel van Buyten and Lukas Podolski are possibly available on loan!

    Sounds like a proper atmosphere, chants of ‘there’s only one Kevin Keegan’ ringing out of SJP.
    Attacking line up as well.

    I take it you lads are listening to Radio 5 Live?

    I hear words like “confidence”, “swagger” – is this right or are we all drunk on the euphoria of this afternoon’s events.

    I know Stoke are different league so don’t shoot me down

    FFS I hope we haven’t all jumped forward to April 1st

    TK: Shame there’s nowt on P2P…. tonight

    Has he been paraded yet – missed the SkySports certainly saw nothing on BBC

    1-0 howy the TOon!!

    – Metzeder: would be a fantastic player
    – Van Buyten: gets lots of critics in Belgium and right so, cause every time he plays for the national team he makes silly mistakes
    – Podolski: i don’t like the guy, there are a lot of better strikers to bring to St James

    BTW: Dunne would be a good player for us, maybe the first King Kev touch 😉
