Newcastle Target Fraizer Campbell Looks The Part for England


It certainly seems that Newcastle United with Alan Shearer as manager will still be a huge draw for players in the summer.

fraizer campbell 123

Fraizer Campbell – can also play in snow – ready to join Newcastle?

As we mentioned a week or so ago Manchester United’s 21 year old striker Fraizer Campbell has reiterated he has not made a decision yet on his future, and will not do so until the European U21 Championships are completed.

England have a game on Monday night against Germany, and then the semi-finals this coming Friday, and if they make it  through to the final, it will be the following week. Hull City are trying to sign the player, and presumably have had a bid accepted by the Red Devils, but Fraizer is said to favor a move to Newcastle United, and Alan Shearer.

With Fraizer delaying on a decision that gives Newcastle a little time to get their house in order, and that ultimately means having Ashley leave Toon, and have someone come in with more sense to start running the club.

And there’s even a possibility that Alan Shearer could be manager by then too, but we’ll have to take this slowly, we cannot have too many good news stories coming in at once – the old ticker may not be able to take it.

Hull City are after Fraizer, and even Michael Owen, but we think Campbell isn’t too interested in joining Hull now, and would jump at the chance of coming to Newcastle, especially if  Alan Shearer is appointed manager.

Campbell spent most of the 2007/2008 season on loan at the KC Stadium, and scored an impressive 15 goals for them, so it’s not surprising Hull are very keen on the lad.

Campbell said recently:

“I just want to play football here at the minute and concentrate on England’s tournament.”

“All that stuff can be sorted out when I’m done here and have had my holiday.” “I’ve decided that I’m just going to concentrate on England’s football.”

“It’s been a tough season for me, frustrating – I’ve not played a lot of games but I’m playing for England now and getting some minutes on the pitch,”

“Hopefully I can get some more and it’ll be a good end to the season.”

England play Germany tomorrow at Halmstad with a 7:45 pm kick off, but they have already qualified for the semi-finals with a 2-1 win against Finland, and a briilliant 2-0 win against the highly fancied Spanish side.

The 21-year-old has won a place in Stuart Pearce’s squad this term, and very effective substitute roles in victories against Finland and Spain, have only reinforced the England manager’s admiration for the young striker.

Stuart Pierce talekd about the 21 year-old budding star:

“He’s improving as an international player; in both matches he’s come on and made a major contribution,”

“His energy and commitment for the team cause is fantastic – he’s very unselfish. He’s been a major contributor to the U21 side but there’s more to come from him as a player, at this level and in general.”

“He’s got an eye for goal and a great attitude to football, he wants to learn and be better and everything I’ve asked of him he’s put into practice straight away.”

“He’s going in the right direction. His career’s going to improve and improve.”

Glowing words from the former Newcastle player indeed, and England must have a great shot at winning the European U21 Championship this year, after going so close two years ago against Holland, where the hero of that game, which Holland eventually won on penalties,  was Steven Taylor.

England have their strongest side out, and it’s a pity Steven Taylor couldn’t be there because of his injury.

Only a draw tomorrow night is required for England to win the group – a result which would also secure a semi-final berth for Germany, but England are determined to keep winning their games, and that’s a good attitude to have.

Campbell continued:

“This is a big game for us and we want to carry on doing well,” “It’s been a good tournament so far; I’ve come on in both games and we’ve won both.”

“The team’s been doing alright together but obviously we can do a lot better. We set high standards for ourselves and try to continue that in every game we play.”

“We weren’t great in the first game, we improved in parts in the second but there’s still a lot more to come. Hopefully we can peak at the right time and go all the way.”

Fraizer may cost as much as £6M, but if he continues to do well for England, then look for Alan to swoop for him in a week or two, once the tournament is over, and hopefully Alan has been installed as Newcastle manager.

We think Fraizer may be like Jermaine Beckford, and want to wait  for what Newcastle want to do first, before they make any other career moves.

It will be a big draw to both Fraizer and other young players, to join a famous club managed by one of England’s greatest-ever strikers.

Shearer was certainly the best striker ever to grace the Premier League with 261 Premier League  goals,  in his total haul of 422 career goals for both  club and country.

Nothing quite like letting your record speak for itself is there?     Wow. 😀

    getting this young star would be a great shot in the arm for the club … someone with ability wants to play for the toon … roll on the new owner (whoever they are) and get this lad bought …

    Really hope we can entice Fraizer – think even with hull in premiership new castle could look better longer term prospect – especially if Shearer (eventually) becomes manager. however Ferguson must be thinking Ronnie Gone, Tevez Gone and with Fraizers performance in the euro under 21’s may want to hold on to this kid……….

    I think Fergie will buy a big name to keep the fans happy … this lad will be available to buy.

    I agree that we must be a bigger pull than Hull … surely … but there may be others sniffing around. He did a good job at Hull in a pretty crap team … 15 goals … not bad … he’ll scoere a shed full in the fizzy

    Godsmark is out of contract and has been released. Offer Edgar a new deal and stick him in at centreback, or Kadar. Sell Nolan, because of his wages, and put Vuckic in there. Martins won’t/can’t stay, so put Ranger in there.

    If all this tabloid ‘source’ ‘insider’ boll0cks is true, then we should snap this young lad up quick-sharp. As we should’ve snapped up obvious others in Pennant (Leeds), Johnson (West Ham), Lescott (Wolves), Jagielka (Blades) etc etc etc etc etc et-fkn cetera……

    Andy, My Nana is the Managing Director of ‘International Pasties Inc.’ and she told me that Mike Ashley hates pies. His usual order is 3 sausage rolls (for a quid) and a custard tart.

    andy- i can pretty much confirm that carver is almost certainly going back if shearer is manager. my friend is carvers nephew and he picked him up from the airport a few weeks back when he officially moved back from toronto and he asked him there and then and he told him that it looked like he would join big al when/if he is appointed

    Pfft, whenever you say you know a person who told you information you always get the comical genius who comes out with the line about knowing a ludicrous idea of a person who tells them a ridiculous story.

    Anyway, if Carver is good enough for SBR, then he’s more than good enough for Shearer. Was Carver SBR’s assistant or just coach? Should he or Dowie take a coaching role? What do people think?

    AndyNufc, to be honest i’m not for Shearer becoming our manager, however if he was i think Dowie shouldn’t be cnsidered his assistant. At the end of last season it seemed to me he had far to much to say on the sidelines and was constantly in Shearers ear, possibly confusing matters, especially tactically. The problem being is Dowie still thinks of himself as a manager and possibly finds it difficult to sit back and analyse the game and wait for the gaffer to ask for his opinion.

    well actually i didnt come out with that ‘ludicrous idea’ after you told us of your ‘information’, i posted it on here about 3 weeks ago. and its is hardly a ridiculous idea that my friend is john carvers nephew and he picked him up from the airport is it. TBH i dont really care wether anybody on here believes me or not, i wont lose any sleep. i know what im syaing is true and thats all that matters to me.

    and by the way big dave, carver wasnt available when shearer took over, he was still managing toronto!

    so then you obviously knew he wasnt available, so why ask the question. i never said once that he will 100% be at nufc by nxt season, but i am telling the truth in that fact that my mate is his nephew and did pick him up from the airport with all his stuff when he moved back from toronto, and he told him then that shearer had contacted him regarding joining his staff, believe me, dont believe me, i dont really care, i was just passing on what i know
