Since the great Bobby Robson left the club in 2004, we have never finished in the top four in the Premier League, and although we finished 5th top in May of last year, there have been far too many false dawns for Newcastle fans, so we have to be very careful.
Tom Ince – coming to Newcastle in January?
But with Newcastle looking like a good team in the last few weeks and having two monumental wins in our last two league games, you cannot blame us for thinking we could have a good run through the end of the year, and be much higher up in the league table than we are now in 9th place.
And if that happens, and we also bring in two or three top players in January, then things could be looking up for the club.
And certainly owner Mike Ashley and Director of Football Joe Kinnear owe Newcastle fans some good signings in January, after pitifully losing out on some of our top targets last summer.
There’s some news in SportsDirect News that Newcastle are ready to make a bid of £4M for Blackpool’s 21 year-old goal scoring winger Tom Ince in the January transfer window.
And when we see news like that, we wonder if they have some inside information, because of the association with Sports Direct and Newcastle owner Mike Ashley,
But it’s also not the first time Newcastle have been strongly linked with Ince, who we think would be a good buy for £4M, and that’s a low fee because his contract is up in the summer.
Tottenham are also said to be keen on the former Liverpool winger, but we hope that Newcastle are making their move now, and trying to get a deal done, so we can bring Tom into the club in early January.
