Magpie Midfielder – I Love Newcastle – The Fans Are Great To Me

One thing that Dan Gosling has been consistent about in the three years he’s been on Tyneside, is that he is very happy here and loves it at Newcastle, even if on the playing side of things, he has not been too successful – yet.

Dan Gosling – had an excellent game last night at St. Mirren

And it’s not surprising that as the star man last night in the game at St. Mirren, the former Plymouth and Everton player was interviewed on the Newcastle web-site, and he had this to say:

“There was obviously something last week which was meant to be happening but it didn’t go through,” “So I’m still a Newcastle player and happy to be a Newcastle player.”

“I love being here, the fans are great with me and I just want to continue playing football. We have a very talented group of players at this club, but every time I get the opportunity to play I will give it everything I’ve got.”

“I’m still behind a few of the lads and am trying to catch up as best I can, and games like this will only help me.” “There’s nothing like playing games to get you properly fit. This was my first one and hopefully there’s more to come.”

We think that Dan was one of those players that Joe Kinnear mentioned wasn’t good enough for Newcastle.

But Dan’s a good player and he’s been getting over a few very serious injuries, and he’s a first class professional, as Alan Pardew was only too keen to point out when he almost signed fro Crystal Palace last week.

Dan is in the last year of his four year deal, and although he’s only played 26 times for Newcastle in three seasons, he’s been the perfect professional and absolutely no trouble at all as far as the manager is concerned.

Dan showed a lot of confidence and skill last night, but we still think Dan will leave the club this summer, but maybe his price will go up a bit, if he puts in more dynamic performances like he gave us last night.

And you know, it would be a great story if Dan stayed on Tyneside and finally became successful – and we’d be all for that.

It’s not beyond the realm of possibly, but it’s a little unlikely.

What do you think?

    It has gone from wanting:

    1 main striker, 1 prospect striker a winger and a Centre Back


    Hopefully a player “over the line” by next week.

    Complete and utter joke this window and looking like the mirror image of last year. So demoralising.

    If he brings in Remy, Sinclair & Alderwireld tomorrow I will say fair play but until then Ashley I FCUKING HATE YOUR GUTS

    First off BPC, that is a disgusting comment that has no place on this forum.

    Secondly, people are forgetting that we signed 5 players in January…. 3 of which were suppose to come this summer.

    Yes I recognise that we need a striker, but remember that MA actually coughed up more cash than dortmund for aubemeyang…..and we would have gotten him if a champions league finalist hadn’t come in for him.

    All I’m saying is give them some slack and be patient….the signing will come

    Gosling, Ameobi etc – all playing great pre-season and looking to make their mark in the first team this season – or so we’re told.
    Erm… No! Just the same totally useless players as they were in the last campaign – just that they are putting a little more effort in against crap opposition in the hope they aren’t moved on.
    God we’re gullible – at least some are.

    Good signing that. Always liked Modric as a player. Would laugh if they got him in and then mugged Madrid off and kept Bale 🙂 . Then they would have some team if they bring in a decent striker as well. Dembele and Modric in the same midfield, scary stuff.

    I rate Dan Gosling he’s just been really unfortunate with injuries, similar to what’s happened with Vuckic.

    Every time I’ve seen Gosling play for us he looks for that key pass and his off the ball movement looking to get into spaces impresses me. Shame he’s never had a proper run in the team.

    hammers in for remy and will pay higher wages than us so i cant see him coming !

    fulham in for bent and bent wont drop from 80k pw so dont think we will sign him !

    not a clue whats happening with gomis as he’s blaming owner and owner is blaming gomis !!! aparently we have agreed terms though and he’s free next season so imo they will drop there valuation and we will prob get gomis and tbh i think he’s the best option also as we need someone who can take cisse’s place when out aswell as play with him.

    Lol why does my melancholy side think the signings are going to be more like Cole, Benayoun and other such glittering talents that once graced. ……..upton park ffs. Its the three unwise monkeys of armageddon.

    I think i need to lighten up.


    I never meant to link you directly to torqs departure but some have taken your lead in jumping on any itk scaring them off whilst some me included find them amusing and it breaks the monotony of no news that is occurring. But before slinging accusations of being patronising have you checked a mirror lately? Not so bad at it yourself.

    So which 3 were supposed to come in summer?
    They only said sissoko, and that’s only because he was free in the summer, gouff was also free in the summer

    Debuchy SHOULD of been tied up last summer

    Yanga SHOULD of been number 1 priority last summer

    Signings will come? Based on what? And us this ignoring the fact that they will have missed the whole of pre season? But that’s not important, not as if we want them bedded in so we hit the ground running, the important thing is we save a couple of quid

    Not sure how much truth is in this but apparently the lyon chairman has said that fee agreed and wages its just agents fees holding it up for gomis.

    When will the management understand that they will have to pay the market rates? Because every other club does. We had our success in terms of value 2 years ago. It cannot be done on a consistent basis when it comes to a higher standard of player.

    BILLIONAIRE football club owner Mike Ashley has added another £550m to his fortune in the last year.

    The Newcastle United owner has cemented his place as the richest man in the North-East, according to the annual Sunday Times Rich List due to be published this weekend.

    His sportswear empire, Sports Direct, returned record six-month profits last year, giving Mr Ashley an estimated personal fortune of £2.3bn, making him the 31st wealthiest person in the UK and far and away the richest in the region.
    Cardiff owner Vincent tan is one of the poorest PL owners by his own admission, Yet is spending wisely on quality additions to his team. Something im afraid our owner is failing to do.

    Acoording to most fans on here every club in the Prem has ‘spent wisely’.

    Aye right. So this will be the first window ever that signings dont include some right turkeys?

    Boro thought they”d invested wisely when they bought Alfonso Alves for £12 million – he turned out to be the worst brazilian since David Blunkett shaved his lasses crutch with a blunt razor.
