Newcastle United as a club will always be linked with many footballers when it comes to the transfer windows, and January has been no exception.
Joe Kinnear – praying for new signings in January
Newcastle were yesterday linked with a new bunch of new players, and of course some of these will have just been made up by the popular press, as they are every Sunday.
Joe Kinnear says he is still working very hard to bring in some decent new players before the window closes on February 2nd – which is a short 3 weeks today.
Joe talked about the transfer market today:
“There are an awful lot of names out there.” “But we have a full scout force out there and they are on red alert.”
“They are going to various parts of the world and we are just seeing how we go along.”
“Finances are tight and we have to make the correct decisions with people.”
“Therefore we won’t be rushed into anything.”
We have been impressed with the scouting system that has been set up since Mike Ashley took over the club, and it certainly paid dividends for us last summer, and we seem to have been first in for free agent Peter Lovenkrands too.
A scouting system, and good player development are two things that iof Newcastle can xcel in -0 will be the way forward for the club in the future.
We’re already seeing some success in that area with new stars Danny Guthrie, Sebastien Bassong, Jonas Gutierrez and young Andy Carroll.
We hope the club keeps it up – we need something good to start happening – soon.
