Newcastle Linked With German International Midfielder

1:27 pm, Tuesday, February 18th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 424 Comments

Newcastle were said to be interested in 27 year-old German International Aaron Hunt in January.

Aaron Hunt – Werder Bremen attacking midfielder

Hunt is out of contract in June and he has been in negotiations with Werder Bremen about a new deal, but it seems no agreement has been reached with the German club and other clubs have been able to contact Hunt and his agent since last month.

Hunt joined Bremen in 2001 as a youngster and he made his first team debut in September 2004, as a substitute against Hannover 96, just days after his 18th birthday.

Having a German father and an English mother, and being born in Goslar, West Germany – Aaron was eligible to play for both Germany or England – but being resident in Germany he elected to play for all the German youth sides, and he has three full caps for Germany.

There is news in the German magazine Bild today, that his club have offered him a new four year deal, but they want a decision on this by the end of March.

But Aaron’s delay in signing a new deal in Germany, could point to him wanting to become a free agent in the summer, and we’re sure Newcastle would be very keen to sign this talented attacking midfielder on a free transfer.

He has played 253 times for his Bundesliga club and scored 65 goals with 40 assists, which is not a bad record at all.

He would be a bargain buy for Newcastle, if we could get him on Tyneside as a free agent.

What do you think?

    This summer will see Newcastle United filled with free transfers and cheap foreign imports and Pardew still in charge.

  • 2 barkel // Feb 18, 2014 at 1:36 PM

    £20mil for cabaye, free replacement, it’s good business if that’s what you’re in to. We may as well fill the squad with free/cheap players we don’t have a good enough coaching set up to work with expensive top quality players.

  • 3 70TWO // Feb 18, 2014 at 1:37 PM

    Does his parentage have any baring on his residential status and would he qualify as a home grown player despite never having played here? Clutching at straws, also plus 27yo free agent on a 5 year contract will still heave resale value at 30.

  • 4 Transfer Sage // Feb 18, 2014 at 1:43 PM

    Seems a good player and heard plenty positive things about him, although seen very little myself. If free would be brilliant.

    The cost of players isn’t more concern, whether all free or all 50mil I don’t care as long as we get what we need in.

    I think this summer will be the last where Ashley can actually get away with the ‘wait and see’ approach we have for the next transfer window. He has reached a tipping point with gaps in the squad and players leaving where he needs to show some intent…..it’s a huge summer.

  • 5 Tsunki // Feb 18, 2014 at 1:45 PM

    Just FYI mag=jeff=manure troll. If not I’d be very surprised.

  • 6 croftus5678 // Feb 18, 2014 at 1:47 PM

    we need inspiration and players that will boost our current players into thinking we can win the prem and get into champs league !

    siem would be good addition as a cm and create aswell as add goals and cabella also if played as a winger !

    we also need a fast winger who can cross and enjoys crossing !

    get these area’s correct to pep up everyone fans/owner/manager/players and defence will become a lot easier and stable.

  • 7 mag // Feb 18, 2014 at 1:48 PM

    The old adage “Buy cheap buy twice” has never been proved so apt than under Fat mikes ownership of Newcastle United.

  • 8 blew // Feb 18, 2014 at 1:55 PM

    Barkel @2
    Good business for who?
    The club, the fans – more like Ashley.

  • 9 70TWO // Feb 18, 2014 at 1:59 PM

    Newcastle squad has 24 players:

    2014 -
    Remy – loan
    de Jong – loan
    Shola – release
    Gosling – release

    2015 -
    Sammy – ?
    HBA – sell
    R Taylor – release

    2016 -
    Obertan
    Marveaux
    Santon
    S Taylor
    Williamson
    Colloccini
    Elliot

    The only player that is likely to have his contract extended is Sammy, which means 13 players (6 home grown) will be exiting in the next 2 years. I hope a credible Chairman is in place prior to the summer to oversee this transition and hopefully, also install a new manager who is capable of more consistent results and playing style.

    No idea if this will happen, not very likely i imagine, but it makes a nice talking point.

  • 15 Markaccus // Feb 18, 2014 at 2:23 PM

    Was there actually a serious rumour about mcmahon taking over? The guy is probably quite inteligent after all, and will be incredibly rich. Although i suspect football (or saaahhhcceerrrrr) will be beyond hos capacity

    a twitter rumour with a few random websites reporting it then picked up by the nationals today.

    His net worth is only $1.1bil……much less than Ashley but imagine he’d have plenty people willing to invest with him if he wanted.

  • 18 Markaccus // Feb 18, 2014 at 2:31 PM

    The McMahon story surfaced in 2011, it’s only re-surfaced because someone commented on the old story, making it active, and then someone spread it on gossip sites and it has since spread around the internet and then seeped into national press.

    Journalism in this country is beyond lazy.

  • 28 anthc // Feb 18, 2014 at 2:38 PM

    Just get grenier,cabella, centre half, centre forward and goal keeper. That should keep us mid table. If only, ashleys water tight and still has his first pay packet in a brown envelope I bet. Fees/cost don’t bother me just as long as they’re an improvement on what we have aleady got.

  • 36 Ciaran // Feb 18, 2014 at 2:43 PM

    Sage

    Ending a sentence with FACT usually indicates that it most certainly isn’t a fact and is just a strongly held opinion.

    The problem with coming to conclusions about Ashley is that he is so clandestine that it is hardly to categorically prove some of the things he is doing – such as selling our players to recoup the debt, not investing in order to maximise profits etc but we can reasonably guess given that logical implications following his failure to invest in 2 subsequent transfer windows could well point to that fact. (Oops)

    None of us really know, but all I know is that his plan is not good for NUFC. Arsenal fans complain about their failure to adequately invest for years, but that could be pointing towards putting themselves in a good position going forward. They kept their powder dry in order to pay off their stadium and now that is done, they have surplus with which they can buy big name stars with.

    I seriously doubt that MA has the same ambition in mind for us…

  • 46 mindshaft // Feb 18, 2014 at 2:47 PM

    To be honest I think the only names not for sale are Krul, Tiote, Collo, Willo, Anita, Dummett, Gouffran, Debuchy, Sissoko, Sammy Ameobi and probably Armstrong and a few of the other kids – rest are available to buy and in reality easily replaceable

  • 47 Markaccus // Feb 18, 2014 at 2:47 PM

    What makes you think those players are not for sale? Cabaye was more important than any of those players and he rocked out of here for 20 million.

    Everyone has their price. Everyone.

    I think everyone is for sale providing the price is right…same for any player at any club. Messi is for sale if somebody offer 250mil.

  • 59 70TWO // Feb 18, 2014 at 3:26 PM

    Again, I say Roberto Firmino:

    Over this and last season he has had the best stats for #10 / AM. He is 22, 1.8m, from Brazil, plays for Hoffenheim and is contracted to 2015; valued at approx. £15M that figure could be chipped away at. Unlike Grenier who is contracted to 2016 and is statistically poorer, although sweet at set pieces.

  • 60 Markaccus // Feb 18, 2014 at 3:28 PM

    Seen Firmino a fair bit. Seems a canny player in all honesty, quite prolific as well whenever I’ve seen him play. However I think Grenier would be better as we are simply awful at set pieces now. Would gladly take both though.

  • 70 70TWO // Feb 18, 2014 at 3:49 PM

    I was watching the games over the weekend and noticed that often there was a very noticeable two banks of players when defending, something that I have not seen from NUFC probably since the ManU game. The last Spurs game was a mess and Villa will probably try to replicate the high pressing and break quickly on to our defenders.

    I only hope Tiote can bring some surety and the back line can be sorted out. Based on tackling, interceptions and playing the ball forward I am wondering about a three man midfield, with a playmaker in front and two forwards. Perhaps starting de Jong and Gouffran as strikers with the intention of bringing Remy on for either, or even Sammy if the formation needed changing. My team for Villa would be:

    – de Jong —— Gouffran
    ————- ACM
    – Sammy – Tiote – Sissoko
    Haidarra – CD – CD – Debuchy

    The ACM could be any of Anita / HBA / Marveux / Gosling. I would probably go with Anita because he is always looking to pass and has good technique, although have not really seen him dribbling.

    lol we are certainly going to need more than one player coming in to get us on an even keel. I would much rather see a protest with the banner “Show us the money!” As there is need for significant investment which has been non existent for 3 of the last 4 windows and consequently should have funds available, plus the TV and player sales money.

    Thing is you have no say on who he sells to, none of us do.
    Can you imagine if he sells to Vince McMahon !

    Vince has got no Money ..He’s a pauper compared to Ashley

    Its worrying How would you feel if that happened ?

    We would be at the Hull City Level as far as finance from a rich benefactor were the toon at heart is concerned If Vince took over..

    So what if the new owner (or any new owner) of the club ‘only’ had 1.1 billion dollars (much less than Ashley) if he put £10 into the club for transfers it would be £10 more than Telly Tubby does.

    Bearing in mind that Ashley does not invest his own personal fortune into the club it would not impact on my view really.

    However, I have been quoted as saying that I don’t want to bounce from 100% private ownership to 100% private owner. I would want fan engagement and representation at some level within the club.

    Ashley’s personal fortune is vast, but it does not benefit NUFC. Compare his fortune to the owner of Everton and you will see that vast personal fortune isn’t required to have a competitive team.

  • 142 Ciaran // Feb 18, 2014 at 5:00 PM

    Part Supporters ownership with a rep on the board would be a good thing.

    With the Investment that Ashley is putting into the training Complex, many Millions, .. TV money ?..perhaps he’s here for the long run and going nowhere .

    Well if Ashley would invest his own personal fortune it would be a massive help, but he is unwilling to do that. It can work, but I would rather have a team that is connected to its community than owned by a billionaire who is using it as his toy.

    say that ashley wanted £300mil, thats 500mil dollars, have of vince’s cash, a lot of which will be tied up in his assets. So yeh I guess you are right.

    We wouldn’t have man city level of riches, but Ashley puts £0 of his cash in now (other than the loan he gave us) so the club runs itself. Even if Vince stuck in 10mil a year (sure he could do that) we’d be better off.

    Also might open us up more to the American market, epecially with a link to WWE.

    As you say though it will be utter garbage, but I guess it’s better than the same conversation we have all been having for the past week.

  • 165 GeordieTwo // Feb 18, 2014 at 5:46 PM

    Llambsarse will always be with us in our wonderful memories of the club jesper mate. Along with Big Bad Joe, Assley himself, and Dennis Wise. You know the entire network of geniuses that have worked with Mike. That’s why the club is where it is today. Nowhere.

    I think fans better settle down a bit. A change of coach might be enough to fix a good squad’s performance. Still, I say, give him (AP) till the end of the year. Regarding Mashley, there’s only 380 richer people in the whole universe and they ain’t interested.

  • 175 Thump // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:05 PM

    @Cyprus: Whether they’re worth more or not is a moot point; it’s whether they’re willing to invest. For example, John Henry (Liverpool – $1.4b) can only dream of the wealth Ashley has ($3.5b), yet one has put money into the club and is performing better as a result.

  • 176 Transfer Sage // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:06 PM

    Well Ashley is no mug, I think there is every chance the bloke could take all the money he has in the club out in the next5/6 ears and sell it to some idiot just out of spite.

    just a bit tongue in cheek, but wouldn’t shock me

  • 177 Transfer Sage // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:08 PM

    i think he has more than minority dealing

  • 181 GeordieTwo // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:14 PM

    The most efficient approach from Ashley’s point of view would be 11 senior players and Pardew. Why have more than that? It’s cheap in terms of wages, there is no issue of ever competing for anything such as a cup and there would be less complaints to deal with. Then another 11 U-18?s. Total club: 22 players. Beautiful. Think of the profits to be made.

  • 182 GeordieTwo // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:17 PM

    If an injury happens to our starting 11 (we never plan ahead for that anyway) then you just bring up one of the U-18′s. Ashley’s granny could be on the bench and Joe is looking for a job so he could be the tea lady. It’s sounding better and better.

  • 183 Transfer Sage // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:17 PM

    john

    stan kroenke owns 6% arsenal….usmanov owns 20/30% I think. Nobody will sell him their shares even though he says he wants to do an abramvich and buy them titles.

  • 184 Transfer Sage // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:18 PM

    should say 62% not 6%

  • 185 Thump // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:19 PM

    @GeordieTwo: It’s even better when you consider that at least 4 of those players can be loaned (no fee!) and you can probably get another 4 or 5 players for free (no fee!). Think of the balance sheets!

  • 186 GeordieTwo // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:20 PM

    All right I admit it, we would need a few squad players. Let’s see, who would be cheapest? Ashley will probably want to stick with Shola for a few more years, Obertan for his wonderful crossing, and possibly Saylor to strut his stuff. That’s the final complete club then.

  • 187 GeordieTwo // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:22 PM

    Yes Thump! Now we’re realizing the whole plan! This is amazing. Most of our players like to travel overseas for their injuries so we don’t even need a physio room!

  • 188 GeordieTwo // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:25 PM

    There must be even more efficiencies to bring in. Let’s think. Do the players pay for their water etc. during training and matches? Isn’t there a way that the training room bikes could power the lights in the stadium from huge batteries? And what about the bog paper? Who is paying for that? Surely not Mike?

  • 189 GeordieTwo // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:26 PM

    Transfer ..Eon’s ago I had a great conversation with a great bloke ..Keith Harris ..It was when Ashley was actively looking to sell , He told me Ashley was a lovely Bloke .. , a nice bloke ..Coming from Keith you would really believe him as Keith is a genuine honest Bloke himself ..It shines through when your talking to him he’s a good un’

    He told me Ashley would not sell to anyone if they had the slightest doubt …they would have to be fit and proper persons’s and satisfy the criteria set by Ashley and his advisor’s ..Keith being one of them ..Keith sold Chelsea to Abramovich (Handled the deal ) and also handled the sale of Man U .

    He went on to say that he had had Dinner with Brendan Foster at the weekend and Brendan had bent his ear that night not to sell the club to any one without credence.

    Saying all that I find it hard to trust Ashley because of the furtive way he go’s about his football club

  • 192 toon kk // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:29 PM

    Mash doesn’t deserve a premier league club, if there isn’t a major investment and sort out in the summer come the end of next season he won’t have one.
    We are definitely on free fall and playing the worst football in the league.

  • 193 Blackley and Brownlie // Feb 18, 2014 at 6:33 PM

    We can’t sign a player who costs nothing. He can’t be any good if he costs nothing. That’s typical of our tight owner. No, it’s better if we pay millions for a player because then our net spend is so much higher and it shows we have ambition. If we sign a player for nothing, fans will ask where the money is going. Our owner is pocketing it.

    Never gonna happen,the guy is quality in comparison to what we will attract this summer.
    We are a stepping stone club so if someone wants to show off what they can,they can come to us for a couple of seasons and get their dream move afterwards.
    Really don’t see what we have to offer apart from playing time for decent players.
    The better players will want the bigger wage packet and better players around them in the squad.
    Sign a German international by saying he will play with Tayls,Sammy,Dummett,Santon and some loanees lol!!
    On a big downer with the club at the moment,the best thing we’ve done this year is secure a lot of points in the first half of the season because otherwise I’d be really worried about relegation as we’re one of teams playing that type of football ATM.

    Watching the preview to the PSG game here and the interviews with fans and fans clubs,they tell how the club has changed.
    The 5 year plan was to reach CL final/semi final,win the league,make the club into one of the biggest European clubs and sell it well.
    They have pumped in loads of dosh,more than Ashley is willing to pay out and I don’t really want our club to go that way but the club is making loads of dosh back by shirt sales,big gates through exciting players and style,worldwide coverage through good marketing planning…..
    My point is if Ashley was that good a business man in the football world he’d know that he could’ve invested better in a manager, CEO and buying recommended scouted players at the right times,whilst getting great coverage for his other business,happy customers in the ground buying food and beverages and income from all over Europe.

    you are the bully. There are reems and reems of anti welsh racism from you over the past day or two. You are full of sh1t. Well you have what you want now. I will probably soon be banned after the e-mail i have sent Ed about you. It pulls no punches thats for sure. Your were the agressor 2 years ago, and nothing has changed.

    This blog officially belongs to the bullies like John Tudor, Mag, and the rest of the Ars*holes.

  • 208 John Tudor // Feb 18, 2014 at 7:52 PM

    i was you all along with the problem i openly apologised to you but you have continued to deride me or my son .
    i can openly hope that ed would ban both of us as you have a bad temper on here and me i know nothing good nite

    nowt will change. I have even admited to ed that I have caused some arguments, because over the last month i have been calling people out for abusing other bloggers, even if it isnt me. I just think the attitude stinks. There is no need for it.

    Looking at how much Verratti has progressed this season and how much Matuidi has come on the last couple of years it looks like maybe Cabaye made the move a season to late possibly?

    i will probably get banned. As it stands, i dont think i could stay anyway. It wont affect the place too much. It will probably be less unsettled, with no one to spoil the trolls fun

  • 223 Marty-Toon // Feb 18, 2014 at 8:10 PM

    Markaccus,
    I agree there is just no need for the abuse on here.
    Every user has an opinion and their opinion should be respected even if we think they’re deluded.
    It’s just their opinion against ours.
    We can also choose to ignore them before things get heated.
    We do hopefully cheer for the same team although there isn’t much to cheer.
    It’s ridiculous that we start name calling and become abusive on a football blog.
    I don’t mind that some like Ashley,I don’t mind that some think Ben Arfa is a world beater,I don’t mind what people think of Pards tactics or qualities or lack of for that matter.
    I have my own opinion,if someone starts to slag me off I just ignore em as that’ll annoy them mire than me replyin with some girlish teen gesture

    That mag lad has been banging on some ridiculous stuff about the welsh, can imagine if you are welsh you could find it very offensive

  • 239 mikeashleyisamackem // Feb 18, 2014 at 8:24 PM

    Howdy,i have not posted in ages i have become Disalusioned with newcastle ,i have had many posts on here expressing my anger,and,despair,i have also been positive and,willing to believe that ashley has a heart
    But each time he has wee d on me from a great hight
    Only had time to read a few comments and what i have noticed is the most negetivity i have ever read
    Mike ashley has brought this club to its knees we are the laughing stock the butt of everyones jokes i for one am getting 20000 sportsdirect carrier bags printed to burn at the next home game to fight back ,they will be placed outside the strawberry if you want,to vent your fustration burn a,carrier bag it will be like a bomb going of to ashley his buisness up in smoke his credibility gone
    It would show him what we think of sports direct and of him
    Just kidding but it would be a good idea lol . Knowing the luck of a newcastle fan we would burn the staduim down by accident or mike would use the pictures in his next advertising campaign as a cost cutting exercise
    It would read on that shitty website of his ,newcastle on fire,that is the type of thing we are contending with here ,the club just play dumm
    We where once the entertainers now we are the great pretenders ,pretending we are doing well
    Am gonna write a royal family style tv program on newcastle ,it is gonna cast mike shat on me,percy the plonker,lameass ,fukin joke and dennis i despise ,
    After each story for that night it will end with ashleys death ,pardew is gonna play his bitch and joe kinnear is gonba be like a sid the sexist character
    Everytime ashley pardew or anyone speaking is gonna have poo coming out his mouth
    Anyway rant over
    This is what they have drove me to lol

    The only lad in there midfield I can see maybe needing a rest in a league game would be Thiago Motta
    Can’t see Matuidi or Verratti giving Cabs a sniff at trying to take there place
    Said earlier but given the progress of Verratti this season and Matuidi over the last couple, I think Cabs might of made this move a season too late

  • 257 Marty-Toon // Feb 18, 2014 at 8:50 PM

    Cabs was on from the start a couple of weeks ago.
    Think he will have to be playing quite regularly or he could just be a squad member for the World Cup.
    May have been better for both him and us to stay until the summer

  • 258 Markaccus // Feb 18, 2014 at 8:50 PM

    Ok for anyone interested in the odd bet, this is my lucky 15 bet……

    psg to beat leverkusen
    Barca citeh draw
    munich to beat Ars
    athletico mad to beat milan.

    15 bets (singles, doubles, trebbles and the quad) at 25p each. 3.75 total bet, potential max return of somwhere around 35 quid

  • 259 Markaccus // Feb 18, 2014 at 8:54 PM

    huh :roll:

  • 263 Marty-Toon // Feb 18, 2014 at 8:56 PM

    Tads,
    Maybe a little early as he could still be playing every week with us up until the World Cup.
    The biggest teams will always find players that are better than you,so no matter when he got there the pressure would be on.
    He chose it so he can live with it.
    He’ll get some medals and be involved in Europe,he also gets to train with the best players around and gets paid probably double what he earned at nufc.

  • 264 Markaccus // Feb 18, 2014 at 8:58 PM

    He didnt have to slide in there, Hart might still have got out to that. Lescott should start ahead of him every time.

  • 265 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 18, 2014 at 8:58 PM

    Said it time and time again
    Demichelis was a bizarre signing and looks so out of place in the citeh team it’s untrue!
    Awful player

  • 266 John Tudor // Feb 18, 2014 at 8:58 PM

    spend that dosh citeh

  • 267 Marty-Toon // Feb 18, 2014 at 9:00 PM

    Leverkusen have got nothing from the ref,every 50/50 has gone PSG’s way.
    Lots of acting from Zlatan and co and now Leverkusen are down to ten men,game over long ago all the same.

  • 268 John Tudor // Feb 18, 2014 at 9:01 PM

    or is that the way to play with speed coz the lino’s cant keep up with play
    not a penalty but tough shit

  • 269 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 18, 2014 at 9:02 PM

    Citeh are losing there heads here need to calm down before they end up with only 9 men on the pitch!

  • 270 Markaccus // Feb 18, 2014 at 9:02 PM

    I knew nothing of him until i forst saw him play, when kompany was injured. I agree. I dont even think he is good enough for the toon!

    I concur… Awful, awful player.

  • 271 Markaccus // Feb 18, 2014 at 9:05 PM

    1-0 down to barca, who are in full flow.
    messi on the score sheet (usually gets another if he gets one)
    Down to ten men

    So ya sayin’ theres a chance??

    True, he wanted to rest himself so will have to fight his way in, be gutting for him though if he doesn’t get the game time and misses a spot in Brazil
    Didn’t like the bit of commentary about PSG wanting to bring in more home grown players, Van Der Weil doesn’t look all that at RB………

    Cabs just coming on now

  • 275 mikeashleyisamackem // Feb 18, 2014 at 9:09 PM

    Newcastle will be bying british this next window so i dont believe a word of a aaron,hunt
    Hunt is a class act and half english but he would not qualify as home grown so its a non story
    Actually i dont believeanything that is on a news reel about newcastle anymore we are a laughing stock ,i mean today we where linked with a takeover from the grandfather of wrestling
    It is a circus act at newcastle but to be libked with a clown just shows that we are the butt of everyones jokes
    I mean look at our personel ,f***ng joke in ear
    Dennis the menace lame ass ,percy the plonker
    Who is next
    Rodney of only fools and horses
    Or delboy ,oh i forgot he is at qpr
    we need to refuse to leave the stadium next home game ,we should demand ashley comes onto the centre circle to explain himself ,after he has promised to either sell or run us with ambition we should all be allowed pull one hair from him and he,should,be stripped naked and urinated on for the shambles that is newcastle,united,

    Are you also manipulated by mike ashley,

  • 283 Marty-Toon // Feb 18, 2014 at 9:15 PM

    Must be nice for Cabaye to play with players that actually can retain the ball,he hasn’t done much mind,he actually looks like he’s played an hour already as he’s just walkin around.
    Of course they don’t have to do much apart from keep the ball.
    Although when at Nufc we couldn’t feel safe against ten men

  • 284 Markaccus // Feb 18, 2014 at 9:16 PM

    As long as those balance sheets look good! That’s all that matters!

    Seeing the way Mike Ashley swaps his squad players makes me think he used to be shocking with his PL panini sticker book!!!
    Bet you could con him out of the shiny club badge

    “Mike c’mon I’ll give you my Marcelino and Ali Dia sticker for the shiny PL badge, your practically robbing me!”

    Lucky 15s are really poor bets to make money on, especially if your only betting a small amount like you. If one doesn’t come in, it severely hits your potential winnings, even more so when the odds are so short.

    You’re better off choosing three bets, putting three singles on and a bet on the treble. Much more likely to make money.

    Personally, I don’t see any value in football betting at all. The bookies give rubbish odds meaning you have to lump together an acca just to make it worthwhile….no good!

    well lads,

    Here’s my optimistic thought…

    Goofy back and fully match fit for Villa with a poit to prove, my fav player and I highly tipped him in the beginning for those that were on back then… he has been missed as much as Cab’s IMO.

    Remy back also with a point to prove and also just cleared of the rape charge he had hanging over him, think he is gonna explode back into life and fall in love with he club.

    Then everything is forgotten for a while and we go on the rollercoaster ride again!

    Have to say there has been some crap posted on here that could easily be viewed as bullying tbf (not saying it’s posted by JT btw)

    Oh yeah, I’m not doubting that it doesn’t happen on here (it’s been happening for bloody years now; the site has all but gone to shit if you ask me) I just take issue to JT being called a “bully”. If anything he kind of just bumbles around the blog posting semi-coherent things every now and then is all.

    @Mark: Because I scrolled all the way down here and I’m far too lazy to scroll back up to quote (don’t judge me). I wasn’t about yesterday for too long so I’ll have to take your word to it. I’m basing what I know from what I’ve seen over the past few months which I kind of mentioned earlier.

    Regardless of what names are being mentioned and who the finger is being pointed at, we really do need a bit of a collective head wobble on this blog.

  • 399 GeordieTwo // Feb 18, 2014 at 10:54 PM

    For me it comes down to one question. Does Ashley have a decent football plan for the summer? I don’t mean sell a few players and bring in loads of cash, then spend as little as possible and try to scrape by again next season. I mean replace all the players who go out (including Cabaye), buy a good striker, buy a very solid CB, buy a good winger and of course an AMF. This has to be the minimum surely. No more bollocks, silences and waiting for the last day of the window Ashley. You’re hanging on by a thread as it is in terms of credibility (actually the thread broke quite a while ago for me).

  • 400 Toon-Prodigy // Feb 18, 2014 at 10:54 PM

    It’s a shame the club can’t be so sharp and efficient with there own communications and PR in regards to fans.

    Never ceases to amaze me how quick they are at dealing with the press if any harsh words are said about them? How quickly they are wanting to put wrongs right.

    Yet, when it comes to looking after their own..

    They could let Joe Kinnear ramble on live and insult the masses and players! Show a lack of communication regularly with fans. Lack of direction.

    They have certaintly got their priorities in order.

  • 401 toonarmydownsouth // Feb 18, 2014 at 10:59 PM

    Geordie Two
    Mike Ashley has a very solid football plan this summer
    He recently purchased a small field, 4 jumpers 1 football and and has employed 7 “mates” to partake in a few hours of jumpers for goal posts!

  • 402 Ibizatoon // Feb 18, 2014 at 10:59 PM

    Tads…I’m guessing it’s cheaper to just ban them, otherwise he’d have to pay for lawyers etc…

    G2…With every window brings a new opportunity for Ashley to show his real ambitions. Personally, I’ve thrown that line out there way too many times and am fully expecting more of the same.

    Truth is, it will have to be a busy window based on the of outgoings I’m expecting. However, that doesn’t mean it will be a good window. Oh well, it’s only February…for now I am simply comforted by the fact we have Gosling and Gabby!

    Prodigy…To be fair, other than the match day programs, which I think he had little to do with anyway, Kinnear was banned from publicly speaking again after that 1st interview…it’s almost like he wasn’t there and did nothing….

  • 403 jimmysmith // Feb 18, 2014 at 11:02 PM

    That’s what I’m afraid of tads and Ibiza. The summer may be very long and destructive for the supporters. If he pulls the club apart and thinks a group of 23 year olds are going to come in on the cheap and save us he’s even further off his nut than I thought. He’ll let Remy go because he doesn’t want to pay properly for him. He’ll keep Shola because he’s cheap. Marveaux will be gone, as will Tiote. As for incoming with serious skills? Who knows?

    Not sure I believe it though. Surely that couldn’t work?

    Bye.

    Ibiza,

    Aye i know. I get you.

    But I can’t help but feel they have completely double standards. It’s almost a joke.

    On one hand they are terrible with communicating with their own fans, there is a lack of communication and direction. We hear very little and the PR has been shocking at times, fans and players have been insulted.

    Then on the other, they are so sharp and well prepared for anyone who may attack from the media, even local media. They have a zero tolerance policy haha.

    Now I don’t like a number of these journo’s also and writing unfair articles like the one that has been printed was a disgrace.

    But, NUFC are no angels either..

    It’s a good job the fans don’t have a zero tolerance policy. That’s all I can say. There comical.

    Bed time for me mate.

    Catch you in a bit ;)

    When we say Sports Direct sponsor something is it implied that they also pay for it?
