Alan Pardew has said today Newcastle are very much on the ball when it comes to the January transfer window, and that being the case, hopefully we have one or two good players lined up – and we may have already made offers for those players – that’s the hope in any case.
Alan Pardew - ready for the January transfer window
This is what Alan has said today in the local press:
“We took Papiss two years ago which pushed us on and last year in an emergency, we took four or five that we didn’t really want to do. They’ve still worked out well for us.”
“Graham Carr and Joe Kinnear and myself and the owner are very much on the ball with the January window coming up.” “Hopefully we can keep it all together and improve on it because the window’s opening.”
“And there might be an opportunity for us to galvanize ourselves and make ourselves even stronger.” “Absolutely it makes it easier to attract players.”
It’s interesting that we’ve done well in the last two January transfer windows, because it’s usually difficult to get players away from their clubs in mid-season.
But there seems to be some confident words coming out of the Newcastle manager this morning – but we suppose we shouldn’t read too much into them.
We’d like to see a good striker brought in during January, so at the very least he can get acclimatized to the Premier League in the next five months or so – and then be ready for next season.
Somebody like Tom Ince of Blackpool would also be a very decent buy, since Tom has a knack of putting the ball into the back of the net and he’s English too, and his contract runs out in the summer, so we could get him for a decent price.
This season the 21 year-old has 6 goals in 13 appearances for Blackpool.
We may be able to have another successful transfer window coming up, and that linked to the excellent form being shown by the team should keep us flying high.
