Will James Vaughan Be The Next Through The Door?


One of the most important positions to strengthen in the Newcastle squad is center-back, and the club has done that today.

James Vaughan – next through the door?

The club has signed Georgia 27 year old center back Zurab Khizanishvili from Blackburn Rovers on a three-month loan deal.

And now the next most important position to strengthen is that of striker.

And there is some new news today that Newcastle and Derby are chasing Everton striker James Vaughan.

Everton boss David Moyes has confirmed the Liverpool-based club are willing to loan out Vaughan, so that he can work on his fitness and get some regular first-team action under his belt for a few months.

Middlesbrough were thought to be leading the race  for Vaughan, but it now appears that Championship rivals Newcastle and Derby have made their interest known, or so Sky Sports is reporting.

Newcastle could well tie up the Birmingham born 21 year-old, but we think a more experienced palyer is what we need to work alongside our own youngsters, Ranger and Carroll.

James is an England U21 International and has played for Everton  42 times with 7  goals, and made his debut at the tender young age of  16.

    Yes he would be a welcome addition to the squad , we sem to have a lot strong hold up players such as carrol ranger ameobi ( when he is back fit ) so getting in someone quick ( like mclovin ) could really compliment our other strikers

    Do we dare sign two players in one day 🙂

    We could do with another forward. I would rather sign Vaughn than that muppet Harewood.

    2 players in one day Johno Toon? Sounds more like our usual injury quota than player signing quota.

    Is that true repo? Sounds just like the last striker we signed from Everton. A certain drunken chappie who kept our physio company on lonely nights.

    Is Vaughn the player that had that weird injury that when he snapped something in his leg it made his foot leak clarret all over the pitch? Something to do with a ruptured artery or similar! Looked like a quentin tarantino movie.

    Rather Vaughan than Harewood. I think the lad has more pace too. Not a permanent signing though?

    Trouble with Vaughan is he is injury prone . if he stays fit he is quick and skillful and would be a diffrent option to what we have up front at the moment . Personally i would prefer someone with a bit more expierence to be brought in to help Carroll and Ranger .

    the biggest question is who is bringing the players in, as Chris told us earlier today, no players were likely in the short term, so who’s picking, who to target.

    Dave is there a direct quote from Chris? As if someone is bringing in players over his head the club have really not learned their lesson have they?

    Ericles was only thinking the same thing , would really like lualua to be given a good run out the right wing, not sure who would be available for loan but cant lovenkrands play out left as well?

    I think zenga looks like he is about ready for the first team. If he doesn’t get a consistent run, we will never know. As for looking lost against Huddersfield, he wasn’t the only one that day was he?

    I think the main problem for lualua to get a decent run in the team is we are so top heavy with midfielders that just to accomadte everyone barton or guthrie seem to get pushed out right to keep them happy

    Agreed Johno Toon, lets face it tho, neither Barton nor Guthrie are out and out wingers, nor will they ever be. We do need specialist wingers, but I have no idea who is available at the min. The only names being linked with us heavily at the min are forwards and defenders.

    from what ive seen from barton since he has come back he has just looked miles off the pace and loses the ball to often by trying clever passes when the simple ball would be better. id be happy to see him dropped. jonas back on left when hes back as enrique looks better when hes there and guthers or lovens on right as guthrie is best crosser ive seen at the club for a long time

    I prefer Guthrie in the middle to be honest, but he is a decent crosser, and his set pieces could be a lot worse mind. He reminds me of a young Rob Lee from the middle of the park at times. If only he had Rob Lee’s shooting boots, would be nice to get 10-15 goals a season from one central midfielder.

    id like to see lua lua, vukic, donaldson and baheng (who have all looked great when ive seen them in reserves etc.) given a chance but they really need to brought in as a sub when the game is already won or comfortable

    was interesting to see souness on ssn on about player power and how he felt it was happening too much at newcastle when he was there. thats the problem i think houghton will end up suffering as i dont think he has the authority that good managers have.

    the biggest question is who is bringing the players in?

    Let’s not forget there’s a cheeky little chappie in the form of Wise.

    He’s reputedly drawing £20k pw so he must have some function at the club – unless Ashley’s paying him to sing the right songs at the Keegan tribunal.

    Hughton appears to be doing what many an unsuccessful manager has done and that is play players out of position.
    OK it keeps the senior pros relatively happy but Barton on the wing , Guthrie as a forward or Simpson as centre half just does not work, they need to play in their best positions or not at all.
    Butt will never justify his place in front of the above named and it will be interesting to see who he plays when Jonas comes back along with Smith.

    Bigbadbob Well said mate that is the one thing that really gets me about CH he will only drop Butt if he is injured. as for when jonas comes back it just means that one of the younger ones ie Guthrie or R Taylor will have to make way as it wont be Butt or Barton. As i said from the start CH doesnt have the steel to make big decisions he will allways take the easiest option.

    I dont think he needs to be experienced but we can do without another crock on the books or someone who is not match fit, can they not find players champing at the bit for a game who are raring to go and with a point to prove?
    Keegan signed some pearlers when he first became our manager, they are out there but of course we have no scouts any more.
