Very little new news on Newcastle United this morning, and we wonder why things are so quiet at the club.
Kevin Keegan – no news yesterday about first day back for the squad
Yesterday was the first day back for the lads, and usually we see a few good photos of the lads training, and if there is going to be any change in the shirt numbers the lads play with, that’s usually some news too.
We know number 5 is now available, and wonder if young Steven Taylor will be given that number.
And there doesn’t seem to be anything new on the transfer front, with us again being linked with the players we were after on Sunday – Sidwell, Per Ciljan Skjelbred and Ferdinand. Ameobi is being linked with WBA again, as we expected, since Kevin Phillips looks very likely to move to Birmingham.
No words at all from Kevin Keegan, which is unusual to say the least, but we heard late last week that it will still be 2 weeks before we hear much from King Kev.
Why that’s the case we have no idea, but we hope today to at least see some pictures of the lads in training.
If the silence is because the club is working on new incoming transfers, then that’s fine, and we hope to see some new players arriving soon, so they can get a full pre-season with the team before we start our league fixtures in mid August, with a tough start against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
We must get off to a good start next season.
Certainly, the signing of Gutierrez, was both a great signing and completely out of the blue, so if we can get a couple more of them, the silence is fine by us, we think.Â Â 😀
Comments welcome, but please keep them civil and let’s respect other people’s opinions, even if we don’t agree with them.
