Three Players Who Will Interest Newcastle In The Summer

7:15 pm, Monday, February 6th, 2012 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 260 Comments

Newcastle have been linked with at least two young players at Crystal Palace over the last six months.

Nathanial Clyne – excellent young full-back

One is Wilfried Zaha, the 19 year-old Ivory Coast born winger/striker that  Newcastle showed interest in during January, and it would not be surprising if Newcastle go after the player in the summer.

Bolton Wanderers went in with two bids during January for the England U19 International, but the word is that if the offer had been accepted, Wilfried would have turned Bolton down, and he seems to be keen to come to Newcastle.

The other Crystal Palace player we have been linked with continually is 20 year-old right-back and England U21 international Nathaniel Clyne.

Clyne is already an excellent young player,  and if Newcastle can get a good deal in the summer, he could well be arriving at Newcastle.

Manchester United and Liverpool (of course) are also interested in Clyne, who looks to be an excellent right back in the making.

We still expect Danny Simpson to sign a new contract before the summer, but if he doesn’t,   he will in all likelihood be sold this summer, and that would be more reason to go after Clyne.

We have to also remember that young James Tavernier is starting to look the part at Newcastle, and we think James will be fighting for a first team place next season, after he finishes his latest loan spell at MK Dons,  through the end of this season.

The news is that the Newcastle manager Alan Pardew was at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday afternoon to watch Middlesbrough take on Crystal Palace in the 0-0 draw,  and both Clyne and Zaha played the whole game for Palace.

But another player Pardew could have been watching is the 23 year-old Australian Rhys Williams, the 6’2″ Middlesrough central defender, who can also play at right back and in defensive midfield.

We’ve watched Rhys a couple of times, including the FA Cup tie against Sunderland,  and he looks a good player, and his flexibility would also be useful to Newcastle.

Newcastle will be bringing in a number of new players in the summer,  and we think that either of three above would be good acquisitions, but as always who arrives depends on what kind of deal the club can get, and the Magpies will not pay over the odds for anybody.

We expect a mini clear-out this summer with players like Alan Smith, Tamas Kadar and Peter Lovenkrands not having their contracts renewed, and other players like Steve Harper, Nile Ranger, Xisco (if somebody will take him)  and Danny Simpson could also leave the club.

Danny will leave if he doesn’t sign his new deal before the summer.

There will also be a clear-out of some youngsters who will not be offered new contracts,  including Phil Airey and Jeff Henderson, and we think around five top youngsters will be arriving on  Tyneside in the summer months.

Obviously the aim in the summer will be to improve the quality and the size of the squad, and that will be even more important of we can qualify for the Europa Cup.

And we’ll not even mention possibly qualifying for the European Champions League – because that would be getting way ahead of ourselves – which is why we cannot mention it. :D

Comments welcome.

  • 5 Level 7 Hero // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:22 PM

    There soo many good free’s available this summer, we could assemble a great squad for nothing (Excluding wages, agents fee, plane costs)

    … and anything else NUFC want to add.

  • 6 JackButler // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:23 PM

    wingspan

    Here’s a link to the players that are on twitter mate

  • 7 JackButler // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:24 PM

    Douglas will be someone who we’ll be looking at, a big pacey centre half available of a free

  • 8 wingspan // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:26 PM

  • 9 JackButler // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:30 PM

    Oh and a former player @No1shaygiven

  • 13 Robby Bobson // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:34 PM

    Ed, Clyne is out of contract in the summer.

    We could get several great free transfers to build up the squad if we are in Europe…the likes of Clyne, Douglas, Rodellga, Diame all decent players who would add strength and depth. Even a cheeky contract offer to Kalou!

    Boro turned own 6.5 million for Rhys Williams, about 6million more than we would be prepared to pay for him.

  • 14 nightfa11 // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:34 PM

    3 players:

    utility defender…someone who can play on the side or center..

    young striker..shola 30, ba, cisse 26 so i expect a 20 year old..

    and PERHAPS a winger..but we still have hba & marveux.. so thats not a priority.

    Dogleash has to be the most obtuse, dour person on the face of the earth

  • 18 wingspan // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:45 PM

    Brilliant cheers guys. hahaha the pics demba has posted of the syrup is genius!!

  • 19 Dannyo // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:48 PM

    Ryan Taylor is also on twitter lads.

    @TaylorR1984

    And if Simmo goes, we’ll get an LB, not an RB, Tav and Santon will take the RB mantle.

  • 20 Dannyo // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:49 PM

    @nightfa11
    Concerning a young striker, i think Sammy and Campbell would more than fit the category, atleast as makeshift strikers.

  • 21 Sgt. Heagerty // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:50 PM

    Lads, I would like to draw your attention to the villa preview story comment 121….. the score is off but I accurately predicted Ba would score and demba #2 would score off the bench, not only ghat but I predicted it would be a screamer. Demba #2 if you read this I will gladly accept this weeks pay packet for getting you off to such a smashing start on tyneside.lol then properly return it you for the memory because it was priceless!!!!

    I think come the summer there’ll be a scramble for Jordan Rhodes, also Matt Philips at Blackpool looks to be a great young player with plenty of pace

    i hope Xisco does not go because like james perch and Obertan i think AP can get the best out of Xisco if he remains, what you guys think

  • 29 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:58 PM

    Come on Spurs lets see some good attacking football and a nice big win

  • 30 Level 7 Hero // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:59 PM

    I hope we get another winger in the summer too challenge Jonas. Been far to comfortable for years imo.

    Would have loved Craig Bellamy to come back nd play on the left of midfield.

  • 31 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:59 PM

    Dearka Xisco apparently has a bit of a attitude problem from what I have heard (not sure what the problem is but it was enough for Pards to try to get shot of him)

    Dont think Xisco will be seen in a NUFC shirt again though I could be wrong

  • 32 singapie // Feb 6, 2012 at 7:59 PM

    very good quality link to the MOTD of newcastle vs aston villa if u want to see a replay of cisse’s goal :D

  • 33 Level 7 Hero // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:00 PM

    @Dearka

    He’s on 50 grand a week, i think Ashley will try and give him away on a free in the summer just to get that off the wage bill. Don’t blame him either.

  • 34 JackButler // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:03 PM

    Come the summer we should have Xisco,Smith and Lovern off our books freeing up around 140k a week for players who will challenge for a place in the side

  • 35 tdt // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:03 PM

    How do we want the spuds Liverpool game to end? Liverpool to lose I suppose? We ain’t catching spuds…

  • 36 JackButler // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:06 PM

    Spurs to win but with them picking up three of four injuries and a few suspensions along the way :)

    Charlie Adam must have the record for the most fouls committed this season

  • 37 Gateshead_Geordie // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:06 PM

    Signing up Colo should be our one and only priority for the next few months. Summer targerts can wait. King Colo needs a new deal, best CB ever seen at SJP.

  • 38 Level 7 Hero // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:07 PM

    @JackButler

    Frightening isn’t it, how we used to be run.

  • 39 JackButler // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:11 PM

    Level 7 Hero – It is mate, if you look at the amount of money thats been wasted over the years it’s crazy. Massive transfer fee’s and massive wages for little back in way of performances and commitment

  • 40 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:14 PM

    Dogs at Sunderlad, Cats at Liverpool…..I’ll stick with the magpies showing up to our games ;)

  • 41 tdt // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:15 PM

    Lol cat on the anfield pitch!

  • 42 tdt // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:19 PM

    It’s painful to say it, but come on spuds! Aaahh the pain!

  • 43 JackButler // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:21 PM

    tdt – Its hard to cheer spurs but I’ll do it for one night and I’ll go to bed preying that Harry’s jury is made up of Arsenal season ticket holders

  • 44 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:22 PM

    Spurs need to get in this flaming game!

  • 45 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:29 PM

    Carroll used to love running through players for us…

  • 46 Papiss9 // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:30 PM

    For me I think a draw would be a perfect result. Liverpool still 4 points behind and spurs 8 points ahead. We’re not going to catch them but spurs might get a downperiod.

  • 47 SurefootedShola // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:35 PM

    If none of Spurs wounded recover in time for Saturday, we can have ‘em! Adebayor is a shite target man.

  • 48 tdt // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:35 PM

    Aren’t Liverpool 4 points behind us not including this game, 38 points to our 42?

  • 49 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:36 PM

    tdt
    I am pretty sure that is correct mate

  • 50 tdt // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:36 PM

    Are they likely to get any of their injured players back for Saturday?

  • 51 JackButler // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:37 PM

    We are 4 points ahead of liverpool

  • 52 SurefootedShola // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:37 PM

    No idea, mate.

  • 53 tdt // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:39 PM

    If the FA cup and league cup are won by teams in top 5 of PL, does that mean 6th and 7th place are Europa league spots?

  • 54 tdt // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:39 PM

    Parker on a yellow

  • 55 dikko750 // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:43 PM

    @cheiktiote24 is also on there!

    @dikko1892 is also another cracking follow ;)

  • 56 Wor Shearer // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:43 PM

    @tdt

    Not this again…! keep up mate

    If fa cup finalists and LC winner are all top 5 finishers then 6th, 7th and 8th get Europa.

  • 57 Level 7 Hero // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:46 PM

    Tottenham can definetly be beat, sounds obvious but yano what I mean

    Serious question:

    Could Harry be in jail by the time we play them on saturday? The court case was a two week one they reckoned, must be nearing it’s final days.

  • 58 Papiss9 // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:47 PM

    my mistake, it’s 4 point before the game, still think a draw would be nice. Spurs are good, but it’s not impossible to get a result in london. Cisse Ba will give them a lot of trouble

  • 59 tdt // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:48 PM

    Lol ok! So both FA cup finalists still get europa? I thought they’d changed that, maybe not.

  • 60 Oleg G // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:48 PM

    Shalom to everyone.

    Watching the Livertools and Sperms game. Must say, positive football from both teams at times. Liverpool is playing a lot through the middle, I would like to see us do that more. And Spurs are passing a lot, also a very nice way to play.

  • 61 Level 7 Hero // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:48 PM

    Barring a miracle in the League Cup final, 6th place should be enough for Europa League.

  • 62 wingspan // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:49 PM

    dikko750 is that one real?? i had a look at that and it looked pretty suspect

  • 63 tdt // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:49 PM

    I think the jury will be giving their verdict tomorrow.

  • 64 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:52 PM

    Liverpool playing tight compact football through the middle of the pitch good thing they have Carroll up top who can really play to this…..

  • 65 GeordieGesus // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:52 PM

    Am I wrong in thinking that Xisco’s contract runs out in summer anyway?

  • 66 spitfire_ // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:54 PM

    Liver-pool still can relegate but Newcastle can’t. Ha-Ha

  • 67 GeordieGesus // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:55 PM

    spitfire, don’t push it. The scum went down with 42 points.

  • 68 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:56 PM

    GG
    Nar mate am sure he still has a year left on his contract after the summer

  • 69 Level 7 Hero // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:56 PM

    @GeordieGesus

    I think its next summer, 5 mins on google will determine the answer.

  • 70 sirtoongospel // Feb 6, 2012 at 8:59 PM

    The Cheick twitter is fake. He isn’t on there.
    Draw no disaster tonight, but if anything we want a Tottenham win. Roll on Saturday though, we can get something down there.

  • 71 GeordieGesus // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:00 PM

    My fault, I’m one year ahead of myself. Was wondering what was happening with all my appointments. I’ve been writing 2013. Oh well, lots to do next year.

  • 72 Wor Shearer // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:00 PM

    Xisco’s contract ends July 2013, unfortunately…i’m sure Pards is itching for the money.

  • 73 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:01 PM

    Christ Xisco has played 3 games and scored once for the club he is on loan with and they are in the second tier of Spainish football and he is on 50k a week

    However said team do have Andrés Guardado in their ranks….am I right in thinking he is a good player? Am sure I know the name

  • 74 Level 7 Hero // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:01 PM

    Xisco’s contract expires next summer in 2013, if anyone was wondering.

  • 75 spitfire_ // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:02 PM

    @ GeordieGesus

    … And thats why they are “The scum”.

  • 76 Level 7 Hero // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:04 PM

    We need Tottenham to win tonight, then we can go to Tottenham next week, pressure off, knowing that the most we can fall down the league is 1 place to 6th.

  • 77 Wor Shearer // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:04 PM

    Does anyone know if we’re still paying wages for players who aren’t playing for us? (except loans, of course)

    e.g. Owen, Luque, Barton?

  • 78 Level 7 Hero // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:09 PM

    @Wor Shearer

    Duno if we’d still be paying wages like, maybe some of there transfer fees, although Llambias said that had been stopped recently, and we were no longer paying for ex players.

    In Owens case anyway defiently not because he ran out his contract, and transfer fees are normally spead out over the length of the players first contracts with the club.

  • 79 Papiss9 // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:10 PM

    @ wor shearer

    Owen went on free (bosman) so not paying his wages, not paying luque either.. even tho i dont’t know I think Bartons wage is fully paid by QPR.. We sold him very cheap or for free. Don’t think we would accepted to pay he wages

  • 80 Wor Shearer // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:12 PM

    @Level 7 Hero

    Why are you looking down the table?

    We’re clear in 5th. If Sperms lose tonight and we beat them on the weekend, then we’re only 4 points behind them!

    Plus, we’ve still got some of our best players to come back!

  • 81 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:13 PM

    Bale on yellow now wouldnt mind him missing our match

  • 82 Level 7 Hero // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:14 PM

    Because I’m realistic.

  • 83 Wor Shearer // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:16 PM

    ……and also, I could never bring myself to want a Liverfool win, even for our benefit. Much like my feelings for the scum.

  • 84 Wor Shearer // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:17 PM

    What a knobhead.
    Disgusting.

  • 99 davybtoon // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:30 PM

    saha to score the winner

  • 103 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:32 PM

    Exactly he looked at where the ball was (in the air) then looked at Parker and hoofed him in the gut…deserves another ban for that

  • 104 Papiss9 // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:32 PM

    OMG Carroll.. HAS to score chances like that

  • 105 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:33 PM

  • 106 Dannyo // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:33 PM

    Carroll with a big miss, what a big surprise, isn’t that mandatory?

  • 107 Level 7 Hero // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:33 PM

    Andy Carroll miss…. exact copy of Papiss’s wonder goal only from the other flank.

  • 108 SurefootedShola // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:34 PM

    You’ll never be Papiss, Andy :)

  • 109 Wor Shearer // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:34 PM

    @Dannyo

    When they 1st signed Suarez and my mate reminded me that it was the same bloke from ‘that’ game at the World Cup….I knew I’d hate him from the beginning. The guys a f****g cheat!…

    …felt sorry for Gyan then, but then he joined —–.

  • 110 Barras // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:35 PM

    There’s no doubt in my mind that we can beat both of these teams.

  • 111 Dannyo // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:35 PM

    @WWJBD
    It’s Tottenham Taxevaders vs The Red Racists, it’s bound to be a dirty match mate.
    I know it’s taking it far, but i wanna finish above Liverpool more than i wanna finish above the mackems this year.
    I hate them with a vengance.

  • 112 Wor Shearer // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:35 PM

    Knocking ten bells out of Bale has to be good for us.

  • 113 SurefootedShola // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:36 PM

    What a repulsive blotch of an entity Dogleash is.

  • 114 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:37 PM

    Ol’ andy looks so uncomposed in the box not to mention the touch of a rapsit!

  • 115 Wor Shearer // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:38 PM

    Carrol you donkey! HAHAHA! (sorry)

  • 116 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:38 PM

    Agree mate, Liverpool showered themselves in crap they way the handled the racism issue. I dont care about Sunderland tbh but I cant stand Liverpool

  • 117 WWJBD // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:38 PM

    Though I do like Gerrard and Carroll

  • 118 Papiss9 // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:40 PM

    Oh and El Toro

    Well 80 minutes gone I’n spuds v bindippers…. This is what I’ve learned, Gareth bale has bags of pace and talent but is a straight up sissy boy, dives more then scuba Steve… Andy Carroll is absolute shite and the American broadcast commentators commented about how Newcastle number 9 took a cross of his chest and smashed it I’n from 20 yds and Carroll made a hash of it from 6… Carroll spends the whe game whining and complaining and crying to his teammates and the ref, scousers ruined him…. Luis Suarez should get another ban for that horrible kick on Parker, if cabaye gets 3 for nothing he should get 20 for that. He was nowhere near theball he gave him a van dam to the mid drift

    Ye, well, i don’t like the way El Toro made us to be his spring board. But that’s just my oppinion. He may have stuck with us when we were relegated, but we made him a better player in return.

    Can’t stand Dalglish tho, or Arry for that matter.

  • 130 SurefootedShola // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:45 PM

    0-0 then, good for us, we gain and distance on both teams, couldn’t be better.

    Dreadful game good result for us though I suppose. Liverpool have some talented players but they play like they hate each other. Unlike the toon who cover for each other, throw their bodies on the line for each other…. Terrible game, spurs looked worse, hope they play like that against us, dembas will shred them

  • 155 Marty-Toon // Feb 6, 2012 at 9:56 PM

    If spurs plays like this we could get something out of the game. even tho we miss tiote and cabaye, guthries form make the absent of cabaye not so important. Perch has impresssed too, but he’s nowhere near tiote

  • 166 Oleg G // Feb 6, 2012 at 10:05 PM

    Now with Double D up front, I think we must try to score more than Sperms (Sound obvious hhh.. I know). But what I mean is, that they look very dangerous upfront, and we are a bit weak right now in the back, so I think that our game against them will be the quality of the attacks more then the quality of the defense.

  • 167 Spuggy // Feb 6, 2012 at 10:06 PM

    Not saying we will, but seeing as we’re 5th and got the in form striker in Ba, Cisse looking promising and are midfield duo to return, i know where my money is going!

  • 185 Edd Case // Feb 6, 2012 at 10:19 PM

    I love Tiote but why oh why did we ever let Parker go?

    What a midfielder he is…class act…

    One thing I noticed about Carroll tonight is that he is looking more like he did with us – BUT – Liverpool just do not play to his strengths.
    He’ll never get 20 a season in that team. Liverpool clearly think they’re a ‘pass-a-long-the-floor’ type team.

    Hoof up to Carroll, he’ll win it 80% of the time, Saurez/Bellamy (forget Kuyt) picks up the loose ends and probably gets a shot on target…that’s how they SHOULD play…

  • 186 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 6, 2012 at 10:20 PM

  • 194 roblee7 // Feb 6, 2012 at 10:27 PM

    cheers – anyone else think we kind of manage ok without Cabaye? Think Guthrie (on form) is very similar. Tiote on the other hand, one player we miss HUGELY IMO. Almost irreplaceable. Dunno, Cabaye for me needs to do more. So many games this season I’ve hardly noticed him, Man U game the obvious exception

  • 195 roblee7 // Feb 6, 2012 at 10:29 PM

    n im not bashin him, just don’t think he’s as good as everyone makes out. Even the pundits go on about how good he is, guess they dont watch every toon game though. Is it just me who feels this? If all were available for spurs i still think id stick with guthrie and just stick tiote in there

  • 196 Papiss9 // Feb 6, 2012 at 10:29 PM

    don’t know if this was said earlier but the FA need to take action against suarez and skertel…

    suarez kicked some guy in the chest after the whistle and the ball wasn’t there.
    And skertel was 2footed studs showing and one was knee height. Thats a carreer ending tackle if it hits fully…

    both shud of been red and both were worse then cabaye’s and he got 3 game ban

    but no the FA will say the ref handeld it bla bla bla
    seriously if they dont get into trouble for this, the FA are just a big a disgrace as FIFA…

    Also howard webb shud be fired… he was awful in the world cup final and since then I haven’t seen him have 1 good game :S only reason he has his job is cause of SAF.

  • 224 MagpiesFlyHigh // Feb 6, 2012 at 10:48 PM

    @ Wandering Geordie
    BIOG…
    “Xuereb enjoyed a remarkable season in 1976/77. He led Floriana to the championship, finished as the league’s top scorer and won the coveted Footballer of the Year award.

    Late in the season, Newcastle United came to play in Malta.

    The English league club were impressed by the elegant but forceful play of the Maltese striker and promptly declared their interest in Xuereb.

    Newcastle manager Richard Denise invited Xuereb for a trial. During his stay in Newcastle, he played a number of matches in the Central League. In the meantime, Denise left the club and Lou Macari took over.

    This complicated matters for Xuereb but he still left a good impression on the new manager. Unfortunately, he suffered a rather serious injury and was forced to return to Floriana “

    Barton will always be in trouble, cant keep his gob shut
    often says things that have nowt to do with him.
    Wonder what he feels now when he sees where Toon are
    If he had only kept it shut!

    Hey guys, well worth a read!

    BA laughs off suggestions that he’s looking to leave SJP and that he just found it funny listening to everyone saying he was going here, going there.

    “I never talked to anyone to say I wanted to leave,” said Ba. “I was just listening to people saying or writing he’s going there, he’s going there, he’s going there, and I had a big smile on my face.

    “It was funny to me. The most important thing is being happy with your football and I am happy here.”

    Bale isa perfect example of wear football is heading. The lad falls over when the wind shifts and grabs his bloody knee, most feminine footballer ever…..should have joined the navy he is rather good at diving, cant f-ing stand it makes me sick, football is a contact sport right…..

  • 248 geordieviking // Feb 6, 2012 at 11:32 PM

    Just read that the FA won’t investigate the Warnock tackle (surprise, surprise) because “it was an on-the-ball incident”. WTF, do they live in the same world as everyone else?

  • 249 BOOM BOOM THE 1ST // Feb 6, 2012 at 11:37 PM

    sgt if bales the most feminine footballer ever well sign me up a bus load of footballers with fannys cos that lad is 1 hell of a footballer!

    Hey Danish and Jack @1 and 2, don’t be killjoys.

    Christmas is on the way – shop early!

  • 253 lesh // Feb 6, 2012 at 11:52 PM

    That’s a gem geordieviking, if that was an on-the ball incident, just what was Cabaye’s?

  • 254 lesh // Feb 6, 2012 at 11:57 PM

    BoomBoom, wasn’tea it Souness who signed Chris Wrea for Southampton? If memory seves me right, he had part of a half of a game and was hauled off, never to be seen again.

    And…. wor lad, wor lass, wor hoose…… Wor Horse?

  • 255 Zangwill_Ho // Feb 7, 2012 at 7:39 AM

    Can we loan something for four back back-up right now?
    Is the loan transfer window close or not?

  • 256 Lynxie // Feb 7, 2012 at 10:05 AM

    Wandering Geordie @ 224:
    Dont believe everything you read. Especially when the writer spells Richard Dinnis incorrectly. Also, Lou Macari? FFS…………….

  • 257 Lynxie // Feb 7, 2012 at 10:07 AM

    Lesh:
    I believe Souness signed some lad called Dia or something based upon the fact that he was supposed to be George Weah’s cousin ha ha ha ha. Anyway, he came on as a sub, but was so appallingly bad, he was substituted himself LOL. So obviously Souness wasa soccer genius and just the man to replace Sir Bobby Robson……………..

  • 258 eastend toon // Feb 7, 2012 at 11:15 AM

  • 259 Owldman // Feb 7, 2012 at 11:59 AM

    Watch the Mackems a couple of games then go into re-hab

  • 260 Benton Toon Exile // Feb 7, 2012 at 5:07 PM

    Clyne – Yes please as he will be a top player.

    Williams – Smoggies think he is the next Woodgate so why not.

    Zaha – I dont see it. He’s like another Shola when he was young but not as good!
