From Portugal With Love – Photos Of Newcastle Squad

Here are some photographs taken by blog reader Rolf de Bruin on Saturday, as the lads limbered up for the game on Saturday night against Braga, which we won 2-1 and with it the Guadiana Trophy – many thanks to Rolf for the photos.

Practice makes perfect – Ryan Taylor practicing free kicks on Saturday afternoon – it was worth it!

Steve Stone – looks like he’s the lifeguard on duty

Papiss Cisse, Fab  Coloccini, Demba  Ba and James Tavernier – waiting for the ball

    He’s going to west ham. Something like 2mil for the loan and a 17mil move overall if west ham stay up. Something a bit like that

    So west ham agreed everything with liverfool but carroll said he diesnt want a permanent move to west ham, so they deny a deal has been done sounds about right

    That sounds better outsidethebox. Lol. Think this better for us. Andy caroll would have been a bit of a step back atm, but when he fails at whu after a bit he’ll end up back at toon. He does have better form playing for us. No way whu will stick around in prem for too long…. But then again thats what they said about us

    AC is not going to whu. They denied the bid which probly means AC didnt wanna go there like a previous poster said. Pool will be left with little choice then to send him our way imho…or continue paying his wages themselves ofc.

    Nolan,Carroll,Fat sam all share the same agent like.

    Puzzled at why they would bid if they new he wasn’t intrested in going there.

    I find it odd….if carroll doesnt want to go west ham could bid 100 million and they wouldn’t have him. They will hardly offer him more than his current 80g a week that he gets now, so money wont help.

    The only thing I can think is that Carroll said he didn’t want west ham and only a European side (basically just us as cant see any other side in europe go for him) to try to get liverpool to accept a lower offer from us as we are the only club he would join.

    But seeing as liverpool wouldn’t drop the price and we wouldn’t meet it then he might have accepted west ham as the only option.

    Just my opinion, not claiming to be in the know or anything, just an idea.

    Probably not, but there’ll something will be made up by the press to try and worry us


    Wouldn’t mind West ham bidding £100 million,
    We’ll get £25m of it 🙂

    @Darrenfletcher. Hitler was a great orator who managed to influence countless people. Granted he was a c**t but if people are gonna call you his name then i like to show you the positives

    Ryan Taylor might be even better if he practises on a flat pitch 🙂
