Luuk Told Me Newcastle Was One Of The Big Clubs In The World

23 year-old Luuk de Jong didn’t earn his move to Newcastle this year, but you cannot accuse him of not thinking that Newcastle is still a great club, and in fact he told his older bother Siem, that Newcastle are one of the biggest clubs in the world.

Newcastle United Sign Siem de Jong

Siem de Jong – Newcastle midfielder

Maybe that’s why Siem signed along the dotted line at Newcastle yesterday?

We are certainly one of the best supported football clubs in the world, because we still get 52,000 at St. James Park, and we haven’t won anything since 1969.

Picky picky.

This is what Luuk has said about Newcastle today:

“The last three years we talked to Newcastle, that was important it was also good for me that the manager is still here.”

“I spoke to Alan Pardew once and Luuk also told me all about him, plus he spoke to our manager a couple of times.”

“I have a feeling he is an honest trainer and I hope we have a good couple of years.” “Luuk has said that Newcastle is a great club that has a great atmosphere in a great stadium.”

“He said it is a big club in the world,  and he hopes that one day he can come back, maybe with me, so we will see.”

It would have been great to have signed the two de Jong brothers this summer, but Luuk just didn’t look the part when he was on loan here this year, and in business dealings, sentiment goes out of the window.

But obviously Luuk and Siem think very highly of the Tyneside club, and we are very hopeful that he will become  a great signing for Newcastle United, and he can both create goals and he can score goals.

And given our performances this year – that’s exactly the type of player we need to bring in this summer – so that’s just one reason he could become a terrific signing for us.

Now we need to see four or five more top players brought into the club  over the next couple of months – and the sooner the better.

Comments welcome.

    Interesting comment from him there about us being in touch over 3 years it does seem that we like to monitor players contracts to try and get players at a reduced price!!

    He has evidently signed a 6 year contract – and is looking forward to a “Good couple of years”

    Obviously understands that if he thrives, he’ll be sold at the first commercial oportunity!! lol.

    Finnbogason just signed for Real Sociedad for £6m + £2m add-ons.

    Hopefully Siem is seen as an attacking midfielder, and 2 strikers and a winger are added.

    Then we need to keep Debuchy and Sissoko, easier said than done. Krul won’t be going anywhere.

    I thought this might settle the debate on sdj’s best position….or maybe not! The cretin seems to indicate a replacement for cabs then says we’ve bought a striker, make your mind up fcukface also there’s that buzzword again he loves so much “intelligence” lol

    He told nufcTV: “It’s a very important signing for us, because after Yohan Cabaye left last year, we lacked some intelligence to our team in attacking areas.

    “It is (a coup), because he is a player that personally I’ve courted for 14 months or so.

    “To finally get him is a real pleasure for me personally and my team, and we hope he is going to have a great career here.”

    De Jong is most adept in the No10 role or in the centre of midfield, but is also able to fill in up-front.

    Pardew described his new acquisition as a “striker”, and says he is delighted to have landed the player so early in the transfer window.

    He added: “I’m really pleased that we’ve managed to get a striker early, and particularly a striker of Siem’s type.

    “We need to bed him in a little bit about how we’re going to play and find out the best route for him and for us.

    “It gives us a real kind of intelligence that we can go straight into the season with.”

    The worrying thing is that Pards refers to him as a striker in the interview he gives, means we have a 1 striker, find it funny how his brother LDJ refers to him as HONEST TRAINER!!

    The good thing about signing Siem is Colback might not be Cabeye’s replacement after all! 🙂

    I’m sharing info for the blog as there was a debate as to what his best position was/is and it just coincidentally makes parsnip look like he doesn’t know!

    Disturbing quotes from Percy Parsnip re de Jong
    “…..he is a player that personally I’ve courted for 14 months or so”.
    ““We need to bed him……”
    My God what is old silver tongue up to now.

    He said we where a big club, but can’t remember him saying one of the biggest in the world.

    AC…I think Siem’s best position is as a #10 or a #8 in a 4-3-3 kind of formation.

    …but we don’t play total football and we don’t even play 4-3-3 so this can turn out either way if you ask me!

    How low have we sank for Pardew to describe this signing as a coup? It should be regarded as the standard signing it is.
    I intensely dislike Pardew, can’t wait for the day he packs up and leaves.

    siem is no10 behind the striker without a doubt and i’d bet he’s played there also as a striker and not in midfield which will be tiote/colback/sissoko and goofy as it stands atm.

    up front it will be siem and cisse with arma/perez/campbell fighting for 3rd place.

    i’d love to see arfa on the left wing tbh and use goofy as utility impact sub ! but i cant help thinking another signing or 2 would make all the difference.

    i think pardew can set up a team to play 4-3-3, what i think happened was he c0cked the formation up when we saw the arrival of cisse because for some stupid reason he thought that it would be better if cisse were to be put into the team and drop obatan.

    what he should have did was remain with
    __________guthrie tiote

    because that way we have proper wide men playing out wide jonas and obatan might be rubbish but they are playing in their right positions.
    but then he did the stupid decision of moving ba wide and putting cisse into the centre. now we were left with nothing creative and two strikers who would be angry for not being in the centre.

    that is what i feel was the stupidest decision of all by pardew because if he had just stuck with the team we had and left cisse on the bench then we could have stood more chance of keeping ba and perhaps obatan would have become good.

    Very excited to have signed him! I might be in the minority here but let’s get his brother back here now and give him a full season to settle in and be played in the correct position. Him and Cisse up front with Siem supporting them could be deadly next season.

    Its great that we,ve actually spent some money on a player, but i cant help thinking its money funded by the proposed sale of Debuchy.
    It has been said that we have to sell before we buy, that in itself is a disgrace, but if true, we,ll need to fund money to fund a replacement for the frenchman.
    Fatman Cashley has just pocketed a hefty bonus from his sports company, i bet he does,nt put any of it into his football club.

    Hi all my first time on the blog just had to say im not Pards biggest fan but some people are going over the top. We sign a player and your still moan, player say good things about Pards ie Joey Barton saying he was the best coach he had worked with and Luuk comments and you still criticise get a life man. Even im starting to feel sorry for him just see who we sign before you start going on all the time sooooo boring.
