Big Transfer Window Ahead For Newcastle – Pardew

5:12 pm, Thursday, February 27th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 109 Comments

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has given his press conference for the game at Hull City on Saturday, and he’s said he expects a big transfer window for Newcastle this summer, and he needs two or three acquisitions who will come straight into the team as starters.

Alan Pardew

The Newcastle financial results released on Tuesday night, show that at least on that side of the business things are going very well at the club, there’s no doubt about that and Mike Ashley’s financial prowess is putting Newcastle into a very good financial position, the best we’ve been for a very long time.

But we are not doing very well on the playing side of things, and with a number of players leaving this summer, there could be a lot of players coming in – andit could be a massive transfer window for the club.

This is some of what Alan has said today at his press conference:

“We are going to need at least two or three signings who come straight into that team or have a very, very good chance of starting.”  “I think we have got a summer where we are going to have to be a lot more active than we have been for a while because we are looking light in certain areas.”

“The strikers are an area where that we are going to have to address, for sure, and we are going to have to find a replacement for Cabaye, so that’s a big job in itself, let alone perhaps a couple of other positions that we might need.”

“The finances of the club are in good shape. As I have said before, we know we have got to do some work in the summer after losing Cabaye, we we’d like to think we will have to spend some of that this summer.”  “But the board has done well to get those figures and we look forward to the next period of,  hopefully, our growth.”

“We are the eighth best team in the Premier League in the history of it and we want to get higher than that, so that’s what we have got to try to do.”  “We haven’t Qatar money, we haven’t got that sort of finance, so it’s a slow-build, keep getting better, keep getting stronger, and hopefully our fans realise that.”

Newcastle are the 8th best team in the history of the PL in terms of the number of points we have picked up – so why is our goal only to be a top 10 club in the Premier League?

That’s a good question, and Mike Ashley surely has to become a lot more ambitious at Newcastle United, and be loyal to the traditions of what is still a great football club.

Otherwise, maybe Mike should just sell up and move out?

But this transfer window will give us a good idea of whether Mike Ashley is trying to build a top side at the club.

Maybe he is?

What do you think?

    bit of odd news

  • 3 AusMagpie // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:23 PM

    2 or 3?! For f#ck sake.

  • 4 wynsleap // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:25 PM

    It’s going to take more than 2-3 new signings Silver Fox – and that’s if we let NO ONE go.
    Two strikers, at least one new intelligent winger, one top class Cabaye replacement and a cracking dominating central defender.
    That’s 5-6 just for starters.
    “After losing Cabaye we’d like to think we can spend SOME of that this summer” he says. Is this guy for real?
    Take Ashley’s hand out from behind your back, puppet and say what you REALLY think.
    Sick to the pit of the stomach of hearing empty promises and blatant lies. The whole hierarchy stink. Hope the stories of thousands of returned and un-renewed season tickets is true. It’s the only way we’re going to get rid of this shower.

  • 5 mindshaft // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:26 PM

    “We are going to need at least two or three signings who come straight into that team or have a very, very good chance of starting.”

    He says this every transfer window – guys an idiot

  • 6 IITianToon // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:28 PM

    Read again, he said 2 or 3 who will be direct starters, not 2or 3 in total. Fair enough I’d say.

    Krul
    Debuchy–Mbiwa–Willo — Dummett
    Tiote–ANita–??
    Gouffran–??–??

  • 7 Markaccus // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:30 PM

    Did you know, Newcatle United have won six league matches away from home this campaign – the same number as when they qualified for the Champions League in 2002-03. 

    They need three wins from their remaining six away matches to equal their best ever total of nine in the Premier League.

  • 8 mag // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:30 PM

    He needs two or three as the squad stands now, sack dozy for being a jobsworth.

  • 9 Shadow_Shearer // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:31 PM

    Is Pardew falling for the same lies over and over??

  • 10 Markaccus // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:32 PM

    Thought i would return from illness with an interesting stat.

    how is everyone doing??

  • 11 IITianToon // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:32 PM

    @All Guys Pardew is trying to use the media to put pressure on Mike to make the signings. He knows he is powerless, but he is doing his best to pressurise MA.

  • 12 mag // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:34 PM

    Pardew is the back end of the pantomime horse.

  • 13 beermonkey // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:36 PM

    if he spent less time talking to the press and more time training the players we might play so bad

    he cant help himself can he
    2 or 3 players
    would like to spend some of the cabaye cash

    this will all bite him in the arse as usual when we sign one player and strolla gets a new deal

    he must love the sound of his own voice he not learnt anything has the blokes a twit

  • 14 Shadow_Shearer // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:37 PM

    Maybe pigs will fly every transfer window!

  • 15 Sazzer // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:41 PM

    IITianToon
    Pardew likes Sissoko and Goofy on the wing. So Anita will be dropped if he can get a new Cabaye in.

  • 16 mag // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:45 PM

    The worst thing about his announcement it means he’s not getting sacked.

  • 17 IITianToon // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:48 PM

    @beermonkey “Spend less time talking to the press” . PL press conferences are mandatory. He has to do them.

    @Sazzer Pity. As Anita is going to be a great player if given some more time, because he is intelligent and can read the game. He mispasses occasionaally, but you can see what his idea is, and they are always good and forward. Sissoko is very skilful but lacks that kind of intelligence.

  • 18 Mister Tuff // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:49 PM

    Aha -Percy seems to have revealed the Toons’ plans -excellent. His quote is as follows:-
    ”We haven’t Qatar money, we haven’t got that sort of finance, so it’s a slow-build, keep getting better, keep getting stronger, and hopefully our fans realise that.”

    So dissecting this a bit we get – slow build up- keep getting better – keep getting stronger. Nice plan and so simple.
    5th finish -then 16th last season —-Mmmm not really getting better.
    Sell Ba, sell Cabaye – buy no replacements —–Mmmmm not really getting stronger.

    Well that’s that plan —F****d.

  • 19 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:50 PM

    Well as I said previously when talking to myself we have a 10M pound profit from last season and the Cabaye money to spend in the summer. That would be a good starting point but of course Mike will want some very good deals, possibly free agents who don’t like to have a high wage. It’s very promising then. Does anybody know any one legged strikers who will be available in the summer?

  • 20 toonluvva // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:51 PM

    I should reserve judgement until after the summer transfer window has closed.

    But I’ll make a prediction as to how it will all pan out.

    A number of first team players will be sold, a couple of which will go out on the last day of the window leaving no time to bring in much needed replacements.

    Mr Pardew will then try and convince thoroughly disheartened NUFC fans that we have a strong enough squad and also we didn’t want to go into the red to bring in anyone.

  • 21 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:51 PM

    Ah, now I understand. Keep getting better but slowly. So going from 5th to 16th is slowly getting better then? And complete flops in the domestic cups is slowly getting better? And selling Cabaye without replacing him is getting better? This is truly a cunning plan Pards.

  • 22 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:53 PM

    I just love how we always reserve judgment until the next window so we can pretend things will change. Why not make our judgment based on the last window which has already happened and gives us real evidence of Mike’s ambition?

  • 23 kt97toonarmy // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:55 PM

    We dont have qatar money? U could of fooled me like.

    2 or 3. Thats bloody terrible. We need 5 or 6 good signings to have a chance of europe next season. Anyway lads i think at least 2 signings will b free agents. Probley the other 1 being on loan. So business as usual mr pardew?

  • 24 Markaccus // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:56 PM

    Judgement.

    We will NOT sign the players we need. We NEVER have under ashley. We will continue to play our game of 6 month catch up.

  • 25 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:57 PM

    GT…it was delicious mate ;) and a very good call o the mango chutney indeed!

    …I even went with a topping of coconut chips….Mmmm!

    And I looked so manly eating it wearing my trilby Bond style ;)

  • 26 mag // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:57 PM

    Pardew is the mouthpiece he enjoys the wind up he is a cockney who thinks northerners are as thick as him.

  • 27 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:58 PM

    Sorry didn’t mean to step on your post Mr. Tuff mate. Spot on @18. Isn’t it wonderful when you live in a dreamland like he does? Slowly getting better can mean anything at all. And I’m sure this is his cowardly way of begging Mike for some money in the summer.

  • 28 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:58 PM

    GT…about the slippers have you tried Ikea?

  • 29 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:59 PM

    Excellent jesper. Now I’m even hungrier. Harrumph!

  • 30 Markaccus // Feb 27, 2014 at 5:59 PM

    Pardew clearly means 3 first teamers. Then more on top to cover outgoings. This is how i read it anyway. Whether Ashley will respond in a positive manner remains to be seen. Actually, no it doesn’t….refer to my previous comment :D

  • 31 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:00 PM

    No, they’re much too expensive for Mike jesper. I was thinking of some nice hand me downs. Fluffy bunnies sound good for a manly man like Mike.

  • 32 IITianToon // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:00 PM

    If Luuk De Jong remains even half decent till the end of the season, we will probably sign him. And that could tilt Siem’s capture in our favour. Cabella and Grenier 50% possibility. Donno about any other potential deals.

  • 33 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:01 PM

    Mike makes sure he never reads Pard’s comments to the press. That would set a nasty precedent. We can’t have that. Best to just hide in the castle until the last day of the window and then get the helicopter ready.

  • 34 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:02 PM

    Who do u lot think the 2 or 3 signings will be?

  • 36 mag // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:04 PM

    We’ve had four years of these stories off Pardew and the squad is going backwards under his retarded stewardship.

  • 37 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:05 PM

    …or should I say in Vancouver ;)

  • 38 Sazzer // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:06 PM

    IITianToon
    Nothing is set in stone just pointed out the choice Pardew made when he had Sissoko, Tiote, Cabaye and Anita all available.

    Not replacing Cabaye will Anita time to find his place in the team. If he take it, then we not sign a player to replace Cabaye but a complement or back up for Anita.

  • 39 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:06 PM

    I never go for lunch in Canada jesper mate. Much too expensive. Best to cross the border and eat in the US. Just kidding mate. Lunch is one of my favourite meals. It’s close in my opinion in importance to breakfast, snack time, afternoon munchies, supper, late dinner, and evening snacks. I like lunch betweein noon and one to allow my tummy to settle for an hour or so.

  • 40 Sazzer // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:06 PM

    Give Anita time…

  • 41 Markaccus // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:07 PM

    Kt97

    Ldj,
    One out of sdj, cabella or gremlinier
    A centre forward.

    Then hopefully some squad replacements on top.

  • 42 mag // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:08 PM

    Ha

    i am sure the Makems are loving that one!

  • 45 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:21 PM

    I love the fact that we are moving slowly forward in a backwards fashion. Really tremendous planning involved. Sell your best player. Look around for a free agent or two. Send Marveaux to train with the U-18′s to show confidence. Hire Obertan out as a pizza delivery lad. Let Joe run things for a couple of windows. Beautiful.

  • 48 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:31 PM

    Yes we’re going to put on a really big show in the coming window. Alan will spout his usual bollocks. Mike will get the helicopter ready at the last minute. It’s so exciting already!

  • 49 JackButler // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:32 PM

    Two or three signings?????

    Really Alan???

    Try around eight and thats just to replace those we have lost, those that we will lose and if we were to plug the obvious holes in the whole squad we’d be well into double figures.

    I’m waiting for the day when he comes out telling us that we will now begin to use and rely on our youth system…………………that should be a laugh

  • 50 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:35 PM

    Nobody can doubt our owner’s commitment to excellence now. As sure as Mike fondles his budgies there will be big moves made in the next transfer window. We’ll loan Gosling out. Shola will get a new contract extension. Remy will run screaming away from the club. Obertan will continue to pick up his wage because nobody else wants him. The sense of tremendous surging progress is surely in the air now.

  • 51 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:38 PM

    Does anybody else feel the tremendous surging progress? No! Huh!

  • 52 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:39 PM

    We are relying on our youth system now JB mate. That’s where Marveaux trains.

  • 53 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:40 PM

    Does anybody else feel like flaring their nostrils in joy after these latest tremendous statements from Pardew? No? Huh.

  • 54 Markaccus // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:41 PM

    A makem in a smart black tracksuit….

    also known as THE ACCUSED!

  • 55 JackButler // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:44 PM

    Their suits are without a doubt being made from left over shell suit material

  • 56 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:46 PM

    Well I’m certainly relieved that Remy will be leaving in the summer. He’s far too offensive minded for us. Pardew prefers defenders. That’s why Ben Arfa has been a failure with us. He just doesn’t defend while he’s attacking. Running backwards is always best when attacking by defending. Does Benny not understand that? He must be thick surely. Well we’ll either beat that attacking thing out of him or he’ll be sold. It’s for his own good.

  • 58 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:49 PM

    And as for Cisse, if he starts to defend better then he will be the perfect striker for us. Lay well back. pedal backwards and defend Cisse! What is wrong with you? Defense is always the strongest form of attack. Doesn’t he understand yet?

  • 59 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:54 PM

    Does anybody know why Mike’s helicopter is only ever ready to go on the last day of the transfer window? Is it a cost saving thing? Hire a pilot for 2 days each year and get a special discount? We certainly have a sharp owner so it must be something like that.

  • 60 toon kk // Feb 27, 2014 at 6:58 PM

    I bet we take a step back next season, there will be a tight budget it’s all about profit.
    We should look to the championship for good players, they will be in MA price bracket and not demand large wages. They will fit in with the squad we have! !!!!

  • 61 GeordieTwo // Feb 27, 2014 at 7:00 PM

    Remember the old adage kk mate. Tight budgets mean happy supporters. Beautiful.

  • 62 Ben3arfa // Feb 27, 2014 at 7:01 PM

    MAOC are hopeless

    and I must say , anyone on here still taking Pardew’s quotes seriously is either deluded or below the level of nativity. The man is a blatant liar who sucks off Ashley to stay in his job..

    Pfffft “2-3 signings” , he said the same thing the past two summers and we’ve ended up with lone first team players both times.

    ASHLEY OUT
    PARDEW OUT

    Message to Ciaran

    Ciaran would you take this on ? it’s just an Idea..With Travel and bizz etc I wont be able to devote any time to it but it might be something you could get your teeth into? I don’t mind being the catalyst

    Idea

    There’s a massive advertising board at the Gallowgate end facing the ground.

    I have been looking at advertising costs for posting a massive statement to Mike Ashley on various advertising Hoardings around the city .. there’s one at Whickham View @ £650 for 1 month for a ten by twenty feet sign ..I don’t know how much the Gallowgate hoarding will cost ..but that’s where you should post it, right outside the ground, I’m looking into that .

    Before I go any further I would like everyone’s opinions on the idea. It will be a powerful statement from the supporters to Ashley..It will get massive media attention, Television and newspapers, and Could go world wide Via Sky and various outlet’s

    Asking Blog members and supporters to contribute to the printers costs and the Cost of the
    one month’s advert/statement to Ashley. you can pay the printer directly on your card ..it can all be set up and you will be given details of all costs and how much you need to contribute It could be as little as a fiver/tenner , depending of course on how many people contribute…and cost

    You Will need to ask ED what percentage of people on here want Ashley out ..run a poll here .

    Will also have to ask Ed if he can run a question as to how many of you will make a pledge toward’s costs.

    There should also be a competition for the best statement to Ashley from our members here ..the winning Statement will be the one that will be unveiled on the Massive advertising hoarding outside St’James park .
    We can all vote for the statement we think’s the best one.

    Ciaran If you want Ashley out you could run this on here ..or put it to the T4C and Nust groups .

    Here’s the first Contribution ..£10. Opinion’s invited .

  • 66 dufuss // Feb 27, 2014 at 7:21 PM

    I could buy into that

  • 67 MacToon // Feb 27, 2014 at 7:31 PM

  • 68 ONLINE GUY // Feb 27, 2014 at 7:41 PM

    He could not refuse the Ad though . He would gain more bad publicity.

  • 69 Mag52 // Feb 27, 2014 at 7:50 PM

    NUFC at present standing 8th. in the Premiership.
    Some people might argue that this would indicate that the manager is the eighth best football manager in the country. They would not be right, of course, to claim that. There will be teams which have suffered from a run of injuries, suspensions, loss of confidence, rub of the green, etc.etc. and as a consequence sit below us in the table. There are also others at present above us who are there because they seem to have a limitless supply of cash which they are prepared to use to buy the best players available.
    All in all then Alan Pardew, in spite of the crap that’s hurled at him week after week here on the blog, win or lose, seems to me to be doing a pretty reasonable job bearing in mind that there are any number of factors affecting the way a team performs other than how good or how bad the manager is.

  • 70 dufuss // Feb 27, 2014 at 7:51 PM

  • 71 ONLINE GUY // Feb 27, 2014 at 7:51 PM

    A Filthy crowbar was used to rip the St’James park sign off our ground, and over 100 years of history. He never asked the fans what we would think about it . . Just that one reason has me seething at that Fat Uncaring Bas*ard. We actually have an owner that detests uz . likewise.

    We are in for a new center back from Bulgaria .

    Balan Sheet.

  • 72 MacToon // Feb 27, 2014 at 7:54 PM

    He already did Online ;-) What would you want on the boarding?
    I know it was looked into when he changed the name of the stadium and a protest group wanted, quite simply, “St James’ Park” on 3 of the boardings. I know the board next to the People’s Theatre on the Coast Road was offered at a good discounted rate. Still alot of money though.

  • 73 outside the box // Feb 27, 2014 at 7:58 PM

    No need to say please

  • 79 JackButler // Feb 27, 2014 at 8:11 PM

    ONLINE GUY @65

    That is a great idea, the only issue you would have with it is the same one faced by the MAOC and any other fan who wants to see the back of Ashley.

    And that is there is a massive amount of apathy from the fans. People have paid for their season tickets and don’t want to miss out on games they have already paid for, the amount of people that I have spoken to that have openly said that no matter what happens they will never boycott games leaves you fighting an uphill battle. It’s catch 22 with some of the campaigns to rid us of Ashley as most won’t join as they don’t see it working as there are not enough people involved!!!

    But we have to do anything and everything to bring the majority together as we have a louder voice then.

    Ed can you please run a poll to see what percentage do want Ashley and co out of OUR club

  • 80 Markaccus // Feb 27, 2014 at 8:15 PM

    Evening guys, everybody alright.

  • 85 Markaccus // Feb 27, 2014 at 8:20 PM

    Ashley ran his businesses, with the skills of an expert banker
    but when it came to football stuff, he was a total….

    Indeed.

    If its going outside the ground then something simple (and legal Markaccus)

    Mike ashley brought back Keegan, because Allardyce sucked.
    But then he employed Dennis wise, and everything was….

    Very much so.

  • 92 Markaccus // Feb 27, 2014 at 8:27 PM

    Heres one with no swearing….

    Ashley went out drinking, he guzzled too much beer,
    in fact he got so stinking drunk, he employed Joe Kinnear!

  • 93 welshgeordie9 // Feb 27, 2014 at 8:27 PM

    There was a fat man called Mash who bought a football club with his cash, it was called nufc trouble is he ruined it for you and me.
    So lets all hope for that sunny day when that fat tw.t goes away.

  • 100 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Feb 27, 2014 at 8:55 PM

    I just read Pardew wants 2-3 players in the summer replacing the 8 to 10 players leaving ;) Beautiful! lol

  • 101 mag // Feb 27, 2014 at 8:59 PM

    How the bin lids are pushing for the champions league, they’re terrible. Sack Pardew for being a jobsworth.

  • 102 croftus5678 // Feb 27, 2014 at 9:00 PM

    erm…2-3 players ??? so thats luuk replacement / remy’s replacement / cisse’s replacement !

    we….really…are ….knackered arnt we :-(

    so we need atleast 2 strikers to sign and atleast 2 wingers an acm and a cb ^^ sigh…not looking forward to next season either now :-(

  • 103 mag // Feb 27, 2014 at 9:03 PM

    Point a camera at the cockney bulls knacker and he says anything the clown has no affinity with the North East and it shows.

  • 104 mindshaft // Feb 27, 2014 at 9:08 PM

    @mag – tiote being tracked by man city – lol, that rumour must of been put about by his agent

  • 105 mindshaft // Feb 27, 2014 at 9:10 PM

    We’ll need two players to replace Remy & De Jong and I guess the 3rd player will be a cabaye/collo/cisse/shola replacement – he better be some player then

  • 106 toon kk // Feb 27, 2014 at 9:12 PM

    If tiote ever went to city he’d spend a lot of time warming a bench.

  • 107 mag // Feb 27, 2014 at 9:12 PM

    @104 and your point being?

  • 108 BigJohn // Feb 28, 2014 at 8:08 AM

    I dont understand why we newcastle fans keep saying the same thing. You want Mike Ashley to change. Then you have to make things happen. Dont go to the stadium to support your team. Do it at home. With no money, stadium empty… the guy will have to say or do something.

  • 109 Roger // Feb 28, 2014 at 8:45 AM

    Thank you BigJohn. Every day the same.
    Pardew out, Ashley out and then on saturday in the
    stadium. 50 to 52000 places are sold every match day.
    If you all want that Ashley change his mind, then
    don`t go to the matches. If 50000 supporters stand
    in front of the stadium and not in the stadium, Ashley
    will learn quick what he have to do.
    Only bla bla on this blog, will not bring us nearer to
    a mind change of the owner.
    Howay the lads
