Newcastle are in desperate need of new players after signing just one player in the last 13 weeks.
Sol Campbell – now negotiating with Notts County
The fact that we have let 8 players go, from a previously too small squad, and signed just one, and a a loan signing at that, just about sums up the complete incompetence of the current men leading the club, or should we say not leading the club.
And there’s now just 9 days to go in the transfer window, so Ashley and Llambias have managed to put the club in an awful position and situation.
It looks like the great chance we had of signing Sol Campbell may have gone, according to the Journal, as he is now in negotiations with Sven Eriksson’s Notts County.
What a wonderful chance of getting such a great experienced player and leader, and we haven’t taken it, and Sol even came out and said he would love to sign for the club, and his fiancee is also a Geordie girl.
But no, with all these advantages in our favor, our leadership hasn’t come up with the goods.
Campbell, a free agent after leaving Portsmouth at the end of the season, is reviewing a good offer from the Meadow Lane club, which would match the wages he was on at Portsmouth, and give him some coaching responsibilities.
What exactly are people like Ashley and LLambias thinking – or are they thinking at all.
Apparently Chris Hughton has drawn up a list of transfer targets in case he gets the go ahead in the next 9 days.
But if Ashley comes out on Monday and says he is staying as Newcastle owner, that will just be too much to take for us.
We’ve had enough of him, just in case any of our readers might have any doubts of where we stand on Ashley as the owner of Newcastle.
