It would be just great if Newcastle’s Director of Football Joe Kinnear can bring a couple of good strikers through the door at Newcastle in the next week or two (or sooner).
Alan Pardew – Joe has set up some important meetings
And Alan Pardew, when interviewed today in Portugal by the local press, Alan revealed Joe had set up some important meetings.
This is what Alan Pardew said today:
“I’m focusing on the team out here, and Joe, Lee Charnley and Graham Carr, our chief scout are looking to get someone over the line.”
“At the minute, especially if Shola’s missing, and with no Papiss out here, we’re a little bit light for a Premier League team.” “I spoke to Joe on Friday, and he has some important meetings.”
We assume Kinnear is working hard to bring in new players, and Alan had said last Wednesday when he left with the 23 man squad for Portugal, that he had hoped to have a new player through the door when the lads come back on Wednesday.
Newcastle will play their second game of the tour tomorrow night against Pacos de Ferreira at the Estadio da Capital do Movel, and the game kicks off at 8:00 pm.
Pacos de Ferreira finished in third place in the Primeira League last season on 54 points, three places and 12 points ahead of Rio Ave, and they qualified for the play-off round of the Champions League.
So it looks like they are a good side and will present Newcastle with another severe test.
We are hoping that Coloccini, Ben Arfa and Mathieu Debuchy will be fit enough to be in the starting lineup tomorrow night.
