Forget The Negativity – Newcastle Will Do Just Fine This Season


We’ve seen headlines recently about whether there are three clubs worse than Newcastle in the Premier League next season, and other similar headlines – and yesterday there was some daft news being reported by some newspapers that Mick Harford turning down Newcastle was a big blow to the club – give us a break – please.

Alan Pardew – hoping for good news this week

We could be wrong, but as long as Newcastle can get at least a couple of good strikers through the door this summer, we think we’ll do just fine next season.

One reason for saying that is Newcastle signed five good Frenchmen in January, and we will soon start to see the best out of such players as Moussa Sissoko, Yanga-Mbiwa and Mathieu Debuchy, to name just three.

And apart from striker, we are have a good strong squad in all the other positions, with a positive that Tim Krul could well be fit for the start of the season, at Manchester City on Monday night 19th August – which is four weeks yesterday.

And injuries and those European games just overwhelmed the squad last season, and the squad simply wasn’t big enough to compete in Europe – so it should all be a lot easier in the league next season.

We hope it will be a lot easier tin the league next season. 😀

And Alan Pardew seems to be cool enough about the fact we haven’t yet brought in a senior player to the club this summer, but Manchester United have only brought one U20 player through the door this summer.

This is what Alan Pardew said today to the local press:

“Some clubs have brought in players that I wouldn’t bring to this club,” “I wouldn’t read too much into that.” “Strikers are the hardest deals to do.” “I’m hoping for some good news this week.”

There are two strikers Newcastle could be getting though the door very soon and maybe even this week.

They are 29 year-old Darren Bent from Aston Villa, who said yesterday he was very near a move away from Villa, and 27 year-old Bafetimbi Gomis from Lyon, and if reports are to be believed then Joe Kinnear has meetings arranged this week to try to bring those two strikers (and maybe others) to the club.

Keep the faith, as we’re sure things are not as bad as some of the newspapers would have you believe, and always remember that bad news sells newspapers – sensational news is even better .

Sorry for coming across so positive about Newcastle’s chances  for next season, but please keep the comments civil,  as I’m sure not everybody will  entirely agree with these views. 😀

Howay The Lads!!

    It would be nice to see us make an effort in the cup competitions next season since Europe isn’t an excuse. There were quite a few seasons years ago when we got to the final of the FA Cup but for some reason recently the club show no interest. We have been knocked out at round 3 by so many lower divisions teams

    So Kinnear blocks the transfer of Douglas, sells up all our quality players and has failed to bring any players in half way through the window

    then we have this moron justifying his shitty squad that nearly got relegated last season

    How are the morons in this club not considered infuriating ?

    Some of what he says is true.

    Some clubs have brought in players he wouldn’t bring to the club, other clubs have brought in players who we couldn’t bring to the club.

    I would rather they got the right players in rather than just make knee jerk reactions and be left with a wage bill for a complete flop. (a’la Guivarch, Kluivert, Cort, Xisco, Owen, Smith, Viana, Luque)

    I agree with Richy

    There have been to many players over the years who have been brought in for the sake of it. We need another player like shearer with a proven goal scoring record, the problem is though, a club like us hovering around the bottom of the table and the strange transfer and wages policies will never go for or attract them type of players

    pardew says joe has some very important meetings this week, the first one is to meet up with kate and wills to discuss what they are going to call the new royal baby, the other one is with his travel agent, with all the hard work he’s been doing getting players in the poor blokes knackered and needs a couple of weeks break

    Richy – Jeff speaks directly to Pardew’s receptionist on numerous occasions. He was told that Claire overheard Cisse once become angry with Pardew as he was playing out wide.

    plana. If as you say we’re odds on for relegation, that’ll not be because of Pardew.

    Are you forgetting the mayhem caused by friend Kinnear?

    Just read that HBA has been timed at his quickest since he’s been here. Surely that cant be right, this bulkier #10 cant beat the nimble #37 that was floating around at Goodison park in 2010!

    The reason we are odd’d on for relegation is because in the eye’s of everyone else we are in self destruct mode with Pardew, Kinnear and what are seen as cheap option signings from France.

    We are stuck smack in the middle of a media circus but it is a circus of our own design

    Harford’s rejection is not the blow. The fact JFK is turning to the likes of him is the blow. The fact he turned us down is merely insulting – or significant – take your pick.
