Newcastle Garden Starting To Look A Little Rosier

The good news is that it appears Newcastle manager Chris Hughton does have some money to spend this summer, and coupled with a couple of good potential loan signings, it makes things seems a little rosier in the Newcastle garden.

Chris Hughton – has brought much wanted stability to Newcastle

From some of the comments we’ve received recently fans seem to think that the new found fighting spirit on Tyneside will stand the club in good stead for the coming season in the Premier League.

And it’s been pointed out that Chris Hughton has settled the club down, and there’s even some good stability at Newcastle right now.

Of course Chris has done just a magnificent job of bringing the club to where they are today, from the catastrophes and upheaval that went on in our relegation season, and the terrible state of the club a short 12 months ago.

At that time nobody knew who would even manage the club, and Chris took over pre-season training because there was simply no other coach employed at the club at that time, and remember the club was up for sale.

In fact it’s exactly one year ago today since training started for our first season in the Championship in 16 years, but I’ve got to stop writing about last year, because I’m already getting a bit depressed. 😀

Not much new news today on the loan situation, but comments from Chris on our reported Manchester United target Tom Cleverley, who is expected to be available on loan.

Chris talked about the 20 year-old, who has 50 first class appearances and 13 goals in his two loan spells at Leicester City (15) and Watford (35):

“He is one that we are aware of. He did well at Watford last season and played virtually every game for them, which has helped him.”

“He played against us twice, but it is not something we have pursued at this stage.”

The probable reason Chris is not pursuing him at this time is that loan deals are generally done in August once clubs have had a look at some of their younger players, and we’re sure Chris has a number of younger players lined up at the top clubs, whop could arrive on Tyneside in the early part of next season.

Henri Lansbury and Jack Wilshere are two central midfield players who the club seems to be interested in and either one of those would be an excellent signing for the club for next season.

It will be interesting to see who we’ve got at the c,ub come the end of August but we have faith that Chris is going to get the job done this summer, and ensure that never-say-die team spirit is in full bloom next season.

As we said things in the Newcastle garden are looking just a little better these days.

Comments welcome.

    We are in the Premiership but I am yet to be convinced that Ashley is running NUFC like a Premiership club! Is that how we are seen – a nursery for other clubs? Waiting for the crumbs of “big” clubs to fall our way? Why are we falling over backwards to do Ferguson etc favours anyway?

    I think the kit looks OK. They should have embroided the crest instead of printing it.

    I like the way the Puma Logos are positioned in the shorts and the shirt.

    The collar looks ok too.

    ericles.. If we had players chris hughton felt wer good enough then he wouldnt lookin to be get loan deals in. So i assume that sir alex will be doing us the favour lettin us borrow his players to help us stay in the premiership. In the mean time the likes of vuckic etc can improve so next season we can use our own players when they are good enough. Or would you rather risk relegation just to spite alex ferguson

    thought the mock up designs done by fans on the web couple weeks back wer way better looking would have went out and purchased one them striaght away, its funny fans are the ones paying for and wearing them yet get no say in the design a missed opp for MA and Puma to appease the fans, give them a couple of designs and let the fans vote for their favorite 1 online.

    Don’t think there is anything wrong with the new kit, it’s a fairly basic design but I prefer that to some of the fussy strips you see. I just can’t understand why it matters who makes the strip.
