I’m Sorry The Club Went Down – Lovenkrands

9:45 am, Thursday, June 4th, 2009 by Ed Harrison · 87 Comments

Peter Lovenkrand’s agent yesterday said his client was waiting to hear from Newcastle United on a possible new deal.

Peter Lovenkrands – wants to stay on Tyneside

And Peter himself has today talked to the Newcastle Journal, and he seems more than keen to stay on Tyneside.

Since Peter signed in January he has worked under Joe Kinnear, Chris Hughton and Alan Shearer and it must have been difficult for all three of our January transfers, Lovenkrands, Nolan and Ryan Taylor to settle in on Tyneside.

This year turned out to be catastrophic for the club, with their worst points run for a very very  long time, and we were summarily relegated to the Championship, and deserved it.

But it looks like Peter wants to stay at the club as he said this morning:

“I would love to be at Newcastle United again next season,” “I know that things are up in the air with the gaffer and no one has said anything to me yet, but if the chance was there then I would take it.”

“I’m open to anything that Newcastle say to me. I’m waiting to hear what will happen next for me but hopefully it will be something from Newcastle.”

“It wouldn’t bother me that the club is in the Championship because it is still a massive, massive club and I loved my time there. The fans were amazing and the way they clapped us off at Aston Villa shows how much the club means to them.”

“I’d definitely be interested in playing longer at Newcastle.” “I’m sorry that the club went down and that I couldn’t do more to help,”  “It is a good club and I thought that we could turn it around. It was very disappointing.”

We can only suspect that Alan Shearer has let Peter know he’s interested in him, and will move if and when he is appointed the Magpies manager, but the situation at Newcastle right now is ridiculous, and could only happen at this club.,

Effectively everything is on hold until Mike Ashley sells the club – but that will take weeks.

So something has to give, sooner rather than later, and Newcastle fans’ expectations that Shearer could be appointed at the end of the week may well be torpedoed again.  We’re bracing ourselves for another shock at the end of the week, or over the weekend – as we got last weekend.

We believe Ashley will not want to do much at all until he sells the club, and the fact that is severely hampering Newcastle’s preparation for one of their most important seasons ever coming up, tells us  this guy doesn’t have much of a clue, and he seems to be living on another planet at times.

And certainly his recent actions are hardly helping the club right now.

Also, it is by no means certain that Shearer will eventually be appointed, and certainly the longer this deadlock goes on, the less chance there is of  Shearer becoming manager at his home town club, because it tells us there muts be some serious concerns – be it wages, experience or whatever, with appointing Shearer.

But as this new soap opera continues at the club, the Newcastle Mansion continues to burn, and we’ve lost more rooms to the fire this week – to use an Alan Shearer alliteration on the state of the club.

Comments welcome.

    I think we should keep Lovenkrands and feel he will be an asset next season. He has qualities and I am seeing that he is also loyal to NUFC. According to the Guardian we are supposedly after Chris Gunter the Spurs right back on loan to Nottingham Forest. Might be worth it but this young Welshman was assured of his spuds future only last March. I am glad Blackburn are apparently interested in Alan Smith, with Hull, Blackburn and Bolton supposedly tracking Nolan. Take the money Al!

  • 2 Aza9 // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:03 AM

    We could do far worse than Lovenkrands and he is a free transfer aswell. Give him a 2 year contract on 10k a week.

  • 3 batty // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:03 AM

    dus any one else think we might get jokekinnear back

  • 4 Toon Graeme // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:05 AM

    Im interested in how the press know who we are watching and tracking when no one knows anything about what is happening about something more important like manager and new owner.

    Ive learned one since Mike Ashley tenure – dont beleive any link for any player with any club as its 99.9987% bullslocks.

    If fatsam wants Smith then let him go, Nolan too – although he did show some good captaincy type skills when he first came.

    Martins will be gone and I hope we can flog some of the dead wood. We might well make a loss on the sale but it gets them off the books. Lets just hope the players we sell have been paid for!!!! That concerns me too – add it to the list as you were.

    Oh aye – Peter Lovenkrandz – shows passion and commitment – will have to take a pay cut like – lets do what we always do – sit and wait.

  • 5 SpartanChris // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:07 AM

    This is all so depressingly familiar, but on a grander scale. We can’t make signings because we don’t have a manager. We can’t make signings because the club is up for sale.
    Ashley needs to pull his finger out and act like a responsible owner until the club is actually sold. If he does not want Shearer then come out and say it, but please appoint someone who can actually start and sign players. We’re going to be left well behing the rest of the championship front runners if we delay.

  • 8 nufcindia // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:13 AM

    Give me the job- There is nothing to lose
    nufcindia@gmail.com

    My opinion

    I dont believe Mike Ashley is going to sell the club at this time because he is a business man and he doesnt have to take such a huge loss. I think Shearer demanded much more transfer money because of the position he is in. He has the support of all newcastle supporters and he can demand what he wants. But maybe Ashley doesnt want to spent more money into it. So may be this sale thing is just something ashley is doing to make Shearer lower his demands. But all Mike Ashley needs to understand is that Shearer is not the only manager out there. Only thing Mike has to do is to get a manager who is good at what great Mr Bobby Robson used say carpet football. Get a manager who is good at playing attacking football.Steve Bruce was good but he has gone now. Martinez is there and he is an excellent candidate. I have heard everyone saying that Shearer has done many good things at the club. But i have not seen a single sign of that on the pitch. Yes he should not be judged until he is give a complete season to work with. But if you cant get an agreement in place with him get a manager who like to play passing football

    That for the end of the 07/08 season. I don’t think its as bad as that now as Ashley has led us to believe he’s sorted it, or so we think.

  • 12 Geordie-Gerrard7 // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:23 AM

    it was in 2007-2008 and it was a loan from mike ashley wich he said he didnt want back, he already stated he just wants 100 mill back for the club, wich is fair enough. they call it a soft loan.

  • 13 Toon Graeme // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:24 AM

    Batty –

    from a business sense when the plan was submitted to the banks they need to include a forcast the amount of season ticket sales to guarantee income into the books.

    The only way I can see that they can guarantee that is to appoint Shearer as manager to keep the punters.

    I cant imagine going back to Joe Kinnear so aint gonna consider it.

    On another topic – anyone seen the new training kit. Dark with blues. Hmmm not sure if I will buy it – havent ever bought one before so not gonna change now!

  • 16 Whumpie // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:30 AM

    Ed – got to disagree with something here: everything is NOT on hold until a manager is signed, let alone until the club is sold.

    The club can still:

    1. Sell players.
    2. Negotiate with players
    3. Prepare contracts.

    The only thing they can’t do is sign those contracts, and that isn’t waiting on a manager or an owner – it’s just waiting on Barclays Bank.

    Ashley knows that clubs aren’t sold in days, so he also knows that to keep the club sellable he has to get it into a viable state. For that he needs financial backing (Barclays) and a manager.

    At the weekend, I think we’ll hear one of two things:

    1. Barclays are being total bankers, so we’re stuck with Kinnear and slashing the wage bill at all costs, hoping a new buyer will come in soon.

    2. Barclays see sense, Shearer is signed up, and a dozen players will move in and out in a couple of days.

    Don’t panic! (Mr Mainwaring…)

  • 17 gibbotwg // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:30 AM

    That £245 million debt is from last year and should have gone down because ashley reportedly payed of at least £100 million of that.

  • 18 sahota // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:32 AM

    God knows whats going on. I am not not sure how to react. Its just frustration all around. I hope we sell 4-5 players quickly and Mike Ashley give Shearer money to spend to buy new players. Other than that I have little hope someone will buy us soon otherwise at £100 mil , by now lot of parties would have been interested. Having just 2 parties interested is not enough. Also considering none of them have by now come in open and shown some interest. Its just media speculation. I am concerned that Mike might be playing same trick which he did last time around when he put club for sale. I think Mike will kill us and break our legs so that we can not walk for atleast 5-10 years. I am now AFRAID of him. Why don’t supporters now lining up at SJP ? Where are those people who earlier caused so much trouble. Now is real time to do all that crap.

    “Alliteration” means the repetition of sounds within a sentence, like “peter piper picked” etc. I think you meant “metaphor”.

  • 31 cicero // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:53 AM

    The £250m debt comes from the publication of Deloitte’s Annual Review of Football Finance for 2007/08 and includes Ashley’s purchase of the club, he has also written off another £100 which isn’t included in these figures. Just the press/sky stirring things up again.

  • 32 Toon Graeme // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:53 AM

    Batty -

    Do you think that the players coming out and apologising is gonna sway any of us?

    I take it with salt.

    As a collective group they have have to take responsibility. Apologies wont change our mind that they are over paid under performing so called premier league players.

    Peter is probably doing some pr to get a contract as he probably hasnt got any other interest – who was going to take him on before us – exactly.

    I like the guy – but I too am sick of apologies.

  • 33 THE MAGPIE // Jun 4, 2009 at 10:53 AM

    The club owe Ashley 245m that isnt new news everyone knows that-that is why the asking price was around 250m last time.
    This time its 100m and Mike will have to take a loss of 145m.
    Ashley can still sell players, for whatever offer comes in, get them off the wage bill. That will be his main concern, buying players will be of course of no interest whatsoever.

    If that £106M debt for our club includes the £100m Ashley is writing off, then it puts is in fantastic shape and very sellable.

    Got to say – he’s a muppet, but there’s every indication that he’s actually trying to do the right thing for the club here. Not sure yet, but there are signs…

  • 56 Chris G // Jun 4, 2009 at 12:09 PM

    I’m a bit surprised that not many people have commented on the Gunter story (a right back who needs to be signed as a matter of urgency).

    Does this mean that Habib Beye is leaving?

  • 57 simon376@work // Jun 4, 2009 at 12:16 PM

    If we are signing a right back as cover, we could do a lot worse than Andy Griffin coming back who looks like he is on his way from Stoke

  • 58 Ericles // Jun 4, 2009 at 12:22 PM

    I thought Beye wanted to stay? May be it is that Ryan Taylor is not seen as cover for RB? Would Griffin want to play second fiddle to Beye in the Championship? Some sources seem to think that it is Shearer who wants Gunter urgently. Or is it that the press see NUFC entirely in terms of urgency? Anyway is not Simpson a RB and a better bet?

  • 59 simon376@work // Jun 4, 2009 at 12:25 PM

    What is depressing about this is no-one has spoken to him, not that he hasnt been offered a contract but that someone has not had the sense to sit down talk to each player tell them the position and ask each player if you had the opportunity and we were able to give it you would you play for the club in the championship? These lot are amateurs beyond belief, just downright shoddy.

    At least if a new manager was interest or JK was coming back they could say here is a list of players who are for us and the championship here is a list of those that are undecided or definately want to go, also any offers for those who have signalled an exit could be considered.

    Same old rubbish deals are done left right and centre announced on Sky and we are all sat like plums.

    To football..

    It STILL hasn’t sunk in that we aren’t in the PL next season – even perhaps beyond.

    I accept we were completely woeful on the playing side – with the exception of a little early JK run.

    I accept we made bad signings in the summer AND the winter that did little to address the problems of lack of pace, crossing and creativity in the side.

    What I cannot accept is that Shearer failed to save us – when you bear in mind how many points were needed in the end… surely – and at long last – we should be looking to bring in a new owner who is robust enough to appoint a strong proven, experienced manager to rebuild the squad and calm things down. You all seem to want Shearer for fire and brimstone’s sake .. aint we had enough of that for a lifetime?

    There is no owner, no manager AGAIN and this time we are relegated.. question is… have we hit the bottom yet? Seems like most of you want to take us down again with Shearer…

    If Enrique stays then the majority of our defence will be sorted.

    Just a thought.

    right lads dont shoot the messanger, i have just heard that shearer will be announced anytime soon, with the news also that glen roeder will be coming in at some capacity to run the club as a chairman or something, that what was presented to the people who are investing this 40 mill overdraft untill we are taking over, there also seems to be a high amount of intrest

    Hope so Geordie-Gerrard. Always liked Roder as well, thought he got a really rough deal with us. He is a great coach

  • 76 Stevo // Jun 4, 2009 at 1:59 PM

    Geordie-Gerrard7 – thanks for the update mate.

    Glen Roeder?! Chairman? That’s strange man.

  • 77 Toon Graeme // Jun 4, 2009 at 1:59 PM

    Geordie Gerrard -

    Thats like dangling a carrott infront of a donkey – spanking its rear and shouting ride beyatch.

    I wont shoot ya – but reserve judgement and wait and see how the ball rolls.

  • 78 Geordie-Gerrard7 // Jun 4, 2009 at 2:04 PM

    roeder as chairman does sound strange but i expect its because he is a level headed guy, outa work, knows al well, knows the club well and wouldnt be hurt by being let go when new investors come in

  • 79 Toon Graeme // Jun 4, 2009 at 2:06 PM

    G Gerrard – any source on this – ie press, insider.

    Please say you didnt get it from reetpitit :-)

    graeme- i can tell you, its from my cousins partner, just having a chat with him a minute ago as he is also my accountant, and he said couple of the lads were doing something for david williamson, and he said about roeder, this was last week, last monday when he got told, and they were told, there should be shearer announced as manager between friday and tues this and next week, i can also tell you that shearer came in as permanent manager as he always knew that ashley was selling, and that joe kinnear will not be fit enough to ever come back to management
