Kevin Nolan Hoping For New Players In January Too


Newcastle fans are not the only ones hoping that Mike Ashley will help new manager Alan Pardew bring in at least a couple of new players to Newcastle, in the January transfer window.

Kevin Nolan – embarrassed on Saturday at Stevenage

The Newcastle captain Kevin Nolan is also hoping that a couple of players will arrive in January.

Both Mike Ashley and Derek Llambias flew into Newcastle yesterday and watched the 3-3 draw with Hibernian, in the behind the scenes friendly match, in which they would have seen Dan Gosling look good, in his very first game for Newcastle, albeit it a friendly.

Dan lasted 70 minutes in the game, and will now probably be in the squad for the important Sunderland game, and with Cheick Tiote suspended, the 20 year-old may even get some playing time.

This is what Kevin said today:

‘”f you are fresh, it always makes that bit of difference and it just shows we do need probably a couple more players and hopefully we will get them in January to help us out and get us over that finishing line at the end of the season.”

“I think the genuine thing was that we had had a lot of games over the Christmas period and Stevenage hadn’t and the rest was history, but fair play to them.”

“Hopefully, talks between them are going to be good and hopefully we will be seeing a couple of new faces soon. In the next couple of days would be nice but even if it’s in the next couple of weeks that would be perfect.'”

The talks Kevin  refers to are those between Alan Pardew and Mike Ashley and Derek LLambias, which took place yesterday after the game.

But as we reported yesterday, it’s unlikely to be Seb Larsson who comes to Toon, since his wage demands are too high and apparently Birmingham are also asking too much for a player who will cost  nothing in the summer, if he still doesn’t sign a new contract at Birmingham.

Whether Newcastle try to get him in the summer or get him to sign a pre-contract agreement in January  we have no idea, but we suspect the  Swedish winger may even stay at Birmingham.

Steven Taylor unfortunately looks to be missing the game on Sunday  with his hamstring injury,  and that’s a big blow to Newcastle.

But there again we hammered Sunderland 5-1 at St. James’ Park when Steven was still out injured.

Wonder is we can do that again?

    It’s not looking too rosy I would say, I’m personally not that bothered about Larsson, yeah he is decent, but he is not exactly a world beater. To be honest there are so many decent players floating around this window, Stephen Ireland, Michael Jonhson, both available, Vela on loan from Arsenal, I think its time we started snapping up some players before yet again we are left without quality. Gradel from leeds would be a decent signing, we need a DM to cover Tiote’s absences which will be plenty.

    Yet again however it looks like we are messing around and not getting deals done. Tbh I don’t particularly trust Pardew with the money but we have little choice at the moment. The scouting seems to be decent so just gotta hope!!

    We dont need to concentrate so much on cover, we need to concentrate on people who are gonna go straight into the starting 11.

    Only advantage of Konchesky would be he could play LB and move Bull to LM.

    Konchesky is a total donkey. Would rather have kadar and ferguson covering. Trouble is he’s an old Pardew west ham link.

    LEROY FER to cover tiote. Only 4m for a 20 year old full Dutch international.

    Fer, El Arabi, Taraabt. 10m for all 3. Ship out Smith, Guthrie, Perch.

    Vladimir Weiss is on loan to Rangers with a view to buy I think.

    Everyone saying ship out Smith, Perch, Guthrie, Sol etc – thats all well and good, but need to find someone daft enough to take them on.

    i think if it was possible take dos santos on loan from spurs with no wage contributions but the option to buy if he does well would be worth a gamble like the kids got the pace and skill a know hes a bit puney for the EPL like but worth a try if the no wage thing could happen

    Good thing about Dos Santos is he can play upfront or on the wing – versatility is the key

    It would be good to get some new Players in This week – We definatly Need a Centre Forward a Midfielder and a Defender But They have to Have Premier League Experience its no good getting guys from Southampton and out the championship etc we need internationals etc . We have better players now . We have lost 3 or 4 that we should have had already and it looks as if the Larsen Deal is Dead Now. Also if we have lack of bodies why have we sent Kadar out on Loan ?? I hope we can recall him not like the cock up with the goal keepers and Forster etc. If anything we should Get Robbie Keane on Loan even if its for 3 Months .

    We can’t sign someone like fabio coentrao and say he is cover for the bull. Considering he was Portugals best player at the world cup, all the top european clubs are interested in him, i cant see him joining us to sit on the bench!!! Lallana is a more realistic target and would not cost too much in transfer or wages.
