A little hint from Newcastle manager Alan Pardew today, that there will be some news coming soon from Derek LLambias on a financial matter.
Ashley and LLambias – will they reinvest the £35M?
We hope that last Thursday Alan Pardew was able to show Mike Ashley and Derek LLambias that Newcastle fans feel completely let down by the Andy Carroll sale, because we lost a top local player, and none of that cash has been spent, at least not yet.
But this is what Alan said today:
“The people who feel let down are the fans. “They pay their money and they feel what they are being promised is not being fulfilled.”
“I think from that point of view, all I can say is that Derek Llambias will be giving some financial news.
“The money that we got from Andy is going back into the club, but obviously a big chunk of it hasn’t been spent yet.”
The transfer spend over the summer was a net zero, and even Derek LLambias has not tried to defend the fact lately that Newcastle have simply not spent any of the money from the sale of Andy Carroll, after they said they would do just that last February.
But it seems that Derek LLambias will be announcing something soon, according to Alan, and we hope it will be that the club will reinvest that money fully, and open the purse strings this January, so Newcastle can sign some top players.
Here’s hoping it’s something good.
What do you think it could be?
