Kinnear To Oversee Big Clear Out – Ten Players Could Leave


Joe Kinnear’s new job is basically recruitment at all levels of the club, and one reason Mike Ashley seems to have brought Joe in – is to have another voice on which players to sign – again at all levels of the club – but our recruitment has been good at the first team level but a failure at the lower levels.

Ryan Taylor and Joe Kinnear in January 2009 after Ryan signed on

Mehdi Abeid and Romain Amalfitano will leave the club this summer, and Dan Gosling will either be sold or sent out on loan, with Dan just not making an impact in the first team,since he was signed three years ago as a free agent.

And James Tavernier was never used much this year at all, and was one of the few that were not sent out on loan,  and his status at Newcastle must be questionable, although he still has two years left on his contract.

Mike Williamson was used sparingly this year – and Mike could be sold – with Cardiff City and his former boss at Watford, Malky Mackay, said to be interested in taking Mike,

James Perch is another that Joe Kinnear may think is not up to it at Newcastle, and since James has one year left on his contract,  he may be sold this summer too.

And Gabby Obertan has had two years to show what he can do, and he was not used much last season at all, and he’s a frustrating player because he can play very well in one game, and then the next game he doesn’t show at all.

Shola Ameobi is thinking about moving this summer too, because he will not get many first team games next season, and Shola has only one year left on his contract at Newcastle – so the local lad may be sold.

Steve Harper and Danny Simpson are leaving at the end of the month when their contracts runs out,  so there’s ten players who could be out of the club some September – and a lot of it has to do with what Joe Kinnear thinks, once he’s looked through the current squad of players at Newcastle.

If they all leave then new players will need to be recruited this summer to replace them – but it will be quality rather than quantity Newcastle will be looking for.

    The only one of those players I would disagree with is James Perch – I think he is worth keeping as cover as he can play in several positions and always gives a solid performance.

    Martoon,
    Agreed, do we think Ashley is under the impression he is popular with fans? What are Wendy and Lee going to do, go back and say “Sorry Mike, they still don’t like you and want you out, maybe you should just hand over the club”

    On this topic, if 9 players leave, not that there is any substance to back this up, and the squad was too small last year, do we honestly see 11/12 players coming in who can compete for first team slots. I certainly don’t. Not to mention the obvious bonding and gelling process that goes with that many changes.

    Or is it a case of this time the youngsters are good enough? I don’t think Sammi is, nor Ferg, Inman maybe, Vuckic maybe, Good maybe. That is 3, Campbell, Streete, Mbabu, Satko would all be better off going on loan than stewing in the development squad, or sitting on a bench.

    10 players could be gone, we won’t get Bony or PEA we will get Bent & Cole and no other signings, so much for having a billionaire chairmen i think we should stick with millionaires from now on.

    Mikeashleyisamackem,
    From your earlier comments it would appear that since creating your handle, you have changed your opinion on Ashley… What in particular changed your mind?

    As for Nani, from earlier threads, he is looking for huge wages which is one of the reasons he is available, as he won’t agree a new contract without, and they want some money back on him. Talented player, erratic sometimes, and occasionally too selfish, but in terms of output is an upgrade on the wingers we have at the minute. IMO, he is after too much money when compared with his abilities.

    I would agree keeping perch for cover but apart from that I would have a massive clear out to free up wages for some good players to come in.

    I know this is just Ed putting a few names on a list but I really do hope we don’t sell Perch. Would not make any sense what so ever. Sell tavernier, obertan, gosling, abeid.

    I would keep Amalfitano just because we haven’t seen enough of him and this was his first season in the EPL. Also see no point in selling Williamson unless a new cb is to arrive. And also keep Ameobi just for the mackems

    if MA wants another Carroll deal he needs to bring in players like Bony & PEA he can easily triple there value when selling them on, when he sells our top players where do you think he’s gonna spend it? certainly not on quality players but rejects

    The problem with the younger players (Ferguson, Abeid and Sammy in particular) who have had an opportunity in the first team is that a number of them came into a team that was low in confidence and weren’t playing particularly well and they probably suffered accordingly.

    I would get rid off:
    Shola – he has had his day. Others need to have an opportunity (eg Campbell).
    Gosling – doesn’t give us anything greater than those around him in an area where we have a lot of talent.
    Sammy – has flashes of exuberance and excitement but we need someone for 90 minutes.
    Ferguson – we no longer need an ersatz left fullback. Is he therefore a good left winger? I’m not so sure even though his crossing is good.
    Obertan – has pace and trickery but doesn’t appear to use it to full advantage.
    Abeid – a real disapointment. I had high hopes for him. What went wrong?
    Amalfitano – looked good on his rare appearances but doesn’t appear to have moved on or found favour with the first team coaches.

    I would keep:
    Williamson – a big lump and possibly the best header of a ball. He can defend but cannot initiate an attack but is a good solid pro as fourth in the pecking order.
    Perch – very versatile and has come to the team’s rescure more than once. All teams need a no nonsense player.
    Ryan Taylor – similar to Perch.
    Vu?ki? – very skillfull and terrific shot but susceptible to injury. Worth persevering with.
    Tavernier – great going forward but a bit naive at defending. Probably needs a bit more coaching and exposure to the first team.

    what has changed my mind well when i set up this account as you can tell by the name i was against mike ashley alot to do with how keegan was treated but sinse then ashley has made me eat my word s he proved me wrong in nearly everything i thought about him ,since looking at recruitment and how the club is on a better financial footing what is not to like all be it he has won nothing yet he is trying and he does listen to the fans i agree that he wont pay out silly money and he looks for value in selling the player on last thing we need is a micheal owen sittuation the thing is ya cant please everyone and alot of people are influenced by other people if ya mate spouts shit chances are it rubs of on you a little so i decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and after the promotion from the championship he won me over he has put his hand in his pocket despite what alot will say on here and if he was not intrested in making us a success he would a sold us by now am sure he has better things to do then wind newcastle fans up and when i play champ manager i like taking the under dog and winning everything on a shoe string and a believe that is what he is trying to do if he succeeds then football is the real winner and you will see seens in newcastle that has never been seen before when a club wins the league i think we are still a few years away from that but i believe we can do it by keeping up the blue print he has put in place and eventually we will reep the rewards

    Cabaye 20 + million – spearing 2-3 million
    HBA 20 + million – Cole free agent
    Cisse 15 + million – Bent 5-8 million
    Tiote 10 + million – free agent
    Krull 15 + million – free agent
    Santon 15 million – free agent

    the list can go on and on

    Is it just me that wonders how JFK has managed to develop such a fantastic insight into up to 10 players at the club, when
    a) They are all on holiday
    b) There will be limited video footage of the players we are talking about
    c) He can barely manage to remember most of their names

    Any clear out is surely just a front for decisions that had pretty much already been made?
