We Are Seeing What’s Available In Transfer Market – Hughton


Chris Hughton will be glad when the January transfer window is over, because it’s certainly a hectic time for clubs, and especially at Newcastle United this winter.

Chris Hughton – he’ll be glad when January is over

Chris talked about the transfer window today:

“Eventually we will be glad to get January out the way.” “It’s an inconvenience, there is plenty of speculation going on but we have to put up with it.”

“All you can do is get your team and tactics right and make sure the morale is good.” “And the morale is good here.”

“Morale is very good – one thing the players are aware is that there is speculation everywhere.” “We’re happy with the squad we have and we want to bring in two or three who can boost the squad.”

“The priority is to keep what we have because we are happy with the quality.” “At times when we have picked up injuries the strength of the squad has been tested, we’d like to come out with more players than we went in with.”

“It’s a busy period not just for us, for all clubs.” “We are seeing what is available.” “People are working hard to make sure it is done the right way.”

And Chris looked forward to the Newcastle game with West Ham tomorrow, where a win would certainly be more than uplifting to Newcastle fans, who finished last year down in the dumps a bit, after the team lost 2-1 at Wigan on Boxing Day, and then suffered a rather humiliating 5-1 defeat at St. James’ Park by Liverpool three days later.

The Liverpool hammering was completely unexpected, but our defense ion that game looked terrible and it could have been 10-1 if it were not for Shay Given, who had a world class display in the first half, but then suffered from depression after that game.  You really cannot blame Shay too much, as he just wants to see Newcastle get a decent team together, just like the fans do.

Chris talked about the game tomorrow:

“It will be tough, they are on a good run, they have had some impressive results.” “And they have done it the way West Ham play traditionally, we can’t afford to underestimate.”

“We need to focus on our game – we are on the back of two defeats and we want to get back to winning ways.”

A win tomorrow will go some way to raising the depression that is Tyneside right now. A win tomorrow, a win on Wednesday night against Hull City, two good new players in next week, and things will be flying high for our game away toi Blackburn a week tomorrow – a game we can also win. 😀

First things first and we need a win tomorrow.

Howay The Lads!!

    So interested to see WHO they are trying to bring it. I liked the whole, South American and Youth Player idea.

    Alot cheaper and interetsing. Bassong Great example could sell him for 4times what we brought him ALREADY.

    Hope Joe dont take it to the older over rate over paid players.

    Get young ones in, Arsenal Make it exciting with no money so could we.

    Massive couple of games for us in the league. West Ham and Blackburn. It will be tough tomorrow. We need to start doing the business against the teams around us! I’d be over the moon with 4 points in these 2. Maybe too optimistic. A couple signings too! Maybe I am asking too much now.

    “The priority is to keep what we have because we are happy with the quality.”

    With this attitude we are as good as relegated – we all know there is no pace in the team (without Oba), no creativity in midfield, ExEMO et al want to leave and the likes of smith and shola will not leave – not to mention the likes of Barton.

    toonoholic,
    Unfortunately I believe that under Ashley we have certainly become a selling club.
    We have gone back to the McKeag days.
    Second rate football and fans disrespected.

    Once 3-4 players have come in then it will be a good thing when it closes. There generally isn’t much business done over the weekend so it could be a longer wait for those players though. I was hoping one deal would be complrted today but that was being optimistic.

    can never understand why so many people on here think we are gonna get relegated , i dont see it myself , we are not too good to go down but on our we can give anyone a game and i firmly belive there is no chance of us going down, we do need players in but they do have to be of the right quality no point bringing in players for the sake of it, they need to improve the 1st team not just the squad

    We need not to panic buy. Players will be overpriced in this window be as players are released. Look at Bridge, Defoe neither worth anywhere near what the respective clubs have paid. Some suggest Upson worth 12 Million. What a Joke.

    Judgment should be reserved for until the end of the window.

    I can see the logic in selling Cnz,Smith,Cacapa etc and to some extent Given. But what concerns me is some of the utter pants that the press have linked us with.
    We must buy a 2 FB’s and an AM with creativity and a good ratio of goals.
    Do not sell Barton or Geremi…
    Geremi can go in the summer, we are going to need his experience and versatility for the remainder of the season.

    Like the sound of Hugton about looking at whats available but not you Waddle’s Mullet when you say “everyone has a price tag on them” Hughton is contradicting you there lol!
    I can’t see us signing Taiwo and I must question why we didn’t go for Sebastien Puygrenier? He’s a fine talent and now Bolton have him for the rest of the season.

    I have always had a preference with Axel Witsel and I’m sure anyone who knows upcoming talent wil know who I’m talking about. Excellent prospect, would cost in the region of £10 – 12 m but would be worth every penny, big clubs have been sniffing around so I don’t think we’l be his first choice if we went for him.
    Heard rumours about Sunderland in for Stevan Defour who is another great great player with a big future ahead of him.
    These are the players we have to look at.

    Anyone been talking to David Craig since?

    fostino,
    This is what Wiki says about Defour:
    “Defour is now established as the new Belgian golden boy after Vincent Kompany, and with his burst of pace, vision, passing and little shimmies, he could be that nation’s main playmaker for a decade to come”.
    Sounds interesting, will struggle to oust Butt lol….

    So have Bolton got a good deal with that player then. If he is a left back then we surely should have gone for him.

    Agree with you Waddle’s!
    He may say one target and go for a totally opposite target that’s never been mentioned before!

    Re Dan157 :
    Yes they have got a very good deal as he’s been immense in France over the last season. Stable defender, quite versatile.
    This is fact but whether Bolton know something they don’t by only loaning him could be anotehr thing, personally I believe it’s because a lack of money at teh club
