New Newcastle Signings To Be Announced In Days

The Telegraph is reporting tonight that it could be as early as tomorrow that Newcastle will announce that Alan Pardew will be staying on as manager at Newcastle, but the really interesting news is that Newcastle could announce their first summer signings in a matter of days.

Alan Pardew – announcement could be tomorrow he will be retained

The retention of Pardew will hardly go down well with Newcastle fans, and in our poll of over 4,300 readers voting, 82% want Pardew to be fired.

The news is that the club plan to announce their first signings later this week, and the club plan to have the majority of the signings complete before June 12th, when the World Cup starts – and that would be great if we can really do it.

But it’s always very difficult to complete signings early in the summer, and especially in a World Cup year.

If that indeed can be achieved, it will reflect very well on Lee Charnley, who was charged in February with lining up summer signings for Newcastle, in his new job as Managing Director.

Sources have told the Telegraph that Mike Ashley thought about sacking Pardew, and that he was “angry and disappointed” by the team’s terrible results this year.

Well, he wasn’t the only one.

The news is that he was also concerned by the vicious fan protests against Pardew during Newcastle’s last home game against Cardiff City, which he wisely stayed away from.

And even though some fan groups have tried to get fans to not renew their season tickets, the report  says that season ticket sales are as good as ever.

We always think it’s just very hard for Newcastle fans to give up their season tickets and to stop watching the club they love – Newcastle – however bad we are – it’s just not in the Geordie DNA.

The major targets this summer – not surprisingly – are two strikers, and a very creative player to replace  Yohan Cabaye who was really missed when he left for PSG in January.

If Newcastle already have signings lined up – then maybe they are some free agents, such as Lyon striker Bafe Gomis, who we were after last summer, but Kinnear could not get the deal over the line.

Lee Charnley will have been able to work out deals with any free agents since January, and if these signings are coming in a matter of days,  they could be players out of contract at the end of June.

Hopefully,  there will be some good news before the end of the week – that will be a change. :D.

    Its all a media deploy, please don’t buy into it.

    1)Why would Mike Ashley allow media to share the budget of the club, we are talking about Mike Ashley here. All negotiations are kept quiet untull players are in medical room.

    2)Journalists getting paid wonga and jumping back on board with regime just for some stupid wonga.

    3)This is a big deploy to get fans to buy into season tickets and merchandise.

    Re-think this through, during his time here 7 years now, the journalists jump on the boat just cause they get stashed with cash.

    I honestly don’t know what to believe these days concerning our Newcastle.

    60 million + sales off the dead wood players???????

    na it’s to good to be true if it was true, imagine the wage cap if Jonas, Marv, Taylor ( both ) Obertan & HBA ( hope not ) was sold on plus players out of contract and also Remy contract of 80k gone

    this would basically mean we could compete against similar clubs better still be in a more financial positives.

    oh and we are suppose to have a 3 year new sponsor that’s suppose to be giving Newcastle more than what Wonga is paying???????

    Ha-ha, new signing in a few days! Yep, as in geologic time.
    NUFC will be lucky if they have 18 experienced menfor the start of the next campaign. “We’ll fill out the roster in January”, will say AP. Of course, by then half of the new signings will be on AP’s enemies list & not make the bench.

    Ed, you essentially say that hopefully there will be some good news on free agents. So are we supposed to be excited by the prospect of free players?
