Pardew Wants This English Striker Brought To Newcastle

There’s news in the Journal today that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew wants Burnley striker Danny Ings, who is entering the last year of his contract at the recently promoted Lancashire club.

Danny Ings – 21 year-old Burnley striker

Newcastle still need to sign at least one recognized Premier League goalscorer, after we lost three of our strikers this summer.

The news is that Alan Pardew is keen on the 21 year-old Burnley striker who scored 26 goals in 45 appearances in all competitions for Burnley last season, and our archives show we were first after this lad when he was at Bournemouth back in 2009.

But one problem Newcastle have faced this summer with trying to get English players into the club is there seems to be a significant premium in both the transfer fees and the wages of English players.

And it’s little wonder than Danny’s resistance to sign a new deal at Burnley has the club a little worried – but not Danny – who had this to say:

“I don’t understand why it has gone crazy on social media and the like. I signed a four-year contract when I came here and I still have a year left.” 

“I don’t feel there should be any panic, and I am just enjoying my football and going into my last year of my contract.¨

Danny turns 22 in 4 days time, and if we cannot get him in this summer – which seems doubtful at best – maybe we have a chance of signing him next summer when he becomes a free agent?

Ings has 32 goals in 93 appearances for Burnley in the three seasons hes been at Burnley,  since he signed on from Bournemouth on a four year deal for about £1M, in the summer of 2011.

    spoof at 1 he is 6ft 2 quite quick seems to be strengthening but was skinny imo he is a good defender and good that he is with the squad as it is ideal experience,however hope they play him central not right back.

    Ings is no good next year bud we need someone in this transfer window. We are seriously running out of options on that list of strikers we are in for.
    Even the backups who were not priority targets and seen as backups are signing for other teams.
    Hopefully we will bring in Quality as we have this window and not end up buying out of panic

    If Burnley got relegated Ings will leave them
    and if they survive he will renew his contract .
    I don’t think he will leave them now .
    and even at 1 year left in his contract ?
    his price is still high .

    I’d like us to sign Ings. He’s English, he’s a great finisher and he’s young but already established.

    We’ll create more this year than the last few years with our new signings. I reckon he’d bag 15 if we manage to get him.

    Sign him up!

    cheers m8, at 6tf 2″ and quick he has a lot going for him, and at only 18 he has plenty of time to fill out, we could always put him on the Ben Arfa diet, that would surely put some beef on him ?

    It wouldn’t suprise me if they are working on the basis that Cisse will be back in September and the midfield, plus Riviere will be enough to keep us mid-table without him!! Nothing would suprise, this is NUFC afterall.
    The back 4 are a worry, apart from RB. I would start will MYM and Willo – our best pairing at CB by a mile last season. Sell Saylor, bring in the young brit CB from Porto.
    January, sell willo bring in another replacement; July, sell Colo and promote from within.
    We should then end up with a much stronger, much younger back 4 with continuity during the process!! Or is that too logical?

    it sounds so easy but to promote from within they have to be good enough, as yet we don’t know if we have any who will be good enough, you can’t force players too be good enough, it doesn’t work like that ?

    Why do people thing England is ruined as a national side? Because there aren’t many players promoted from within. And why? Because of the state of the grass roots football and youth scouting in our country.

    Pardews prolific
    The national side is ruined through greed of the FA and by putting the Premier league’s world wide brand before the good of the English national side.

    Also when people are saying we need a top striker in what do we mean by top striker?
    Everybody give me 3 realistic targets for less than 15million and on realistic wages

    Danny Ings if he cost less than 5 million id say take him. He’s a gamble but could take out like Lambert.

    Pardew will defintely want atleast 2 english players in his line up in Colback(guaranteed starter) and Ings or another english forward.

    This would be a good signing, but I don’t think the powers that be take any notice of what Pardew says or wants.

    I do agree with Percy on this occasion.

    Spoof @ 8, in 18 months time, you would know, one way or the other. If what we have coming through isnt good enough, we will only need to buy one. We will, by that time, have 3 damn good CB’s on board anyway!!
    I was thinking more of replacement by progression – avoiding the situation where we suddenly need to replace, Saylor, Collo and Willo all in the same window. A bit of “Forward Planning” as it were – How radical is that then? lol

    I don’t think we’ll sign a top striker Ppb. Two decent strikers should be signed if we can’t get the top striker.

    Ings and another one of similar ilk would do.

    Much like the predicament we currently find our self in with our forward line up bud. We knew Ba was going but didn’t replace. bought Remy in as a temporary solution and had an whole season to find a replacement, yet still we have no one in this summer.
    Beggars belief than our scouting network have not found a preferential target in all this time

    Over £9000 raised by the Sunderland supporters for the tribute for our fallen family killed in the air disaster.

    Anything over the flowers payment will go to charities including ‘The Bobby Robson Foundation’!

    Class act! We thank you, Sunderland.

    Wonderful sentiments Bills, I’m sure they are echoed by all. Good to see you back.

    Fantastic reaction from Sunderland fans as well, great to see that despite our petty football differences we can all come together when something tragic happens.

    good to see you back

    Loyal until the end
    By Unkown

    Ground to ground, both day and night
    To follow those in black and white
    Cheering loud and clapping hands
    Among the nation’s loyalist fans

    Friendlies, cup games, not a care
    If the Toon were playing, you were there
    Win or lose, through bad and good
    Newcastle United was in your blood

    Known by thousands all around
    Familiar faces at our grand old ground
    Loved by many, all the lads and lasses
    Before the next Toon game we’ll raise our glasses

    Two empty spaces in the crowd
    Don’t worry though, we’ll cheer you loud
    This tragic news is sad and dark
    But you’ll be the light at St James’ Park

    Sleep tight now lads with pride on your faces
    And teach the angels The Blaydon Races
    For this sad day and through the night
    Let Heaven’s gates be black and white

    Not sure if someone has posted this before, but just seen a friend put it up on Facebook, thought it quite fitting.

    I know what your saying about bringing them on and give them a chance, but the reality is that of late the talent just hasn’t been there, personally I would rather go for Eric Dier, still a kid at 20 but at least he has about 30 league games behind him for Sporting Lisbon who are no mugs, we do tend to believe that our kids are better than what they actually are, Campbell for me will never make it nor will Good, Armstrong, Satka and Aarons have a chance but so far none of them shown anything to really suggest that they will, but in fairness they haven’t had a chance yet whereas Dier has forced his chance and impressed when it was given, ideally it would be great to develope your own, but very rarely does it happen so personally I would say it is a big risk planning for 18 or so months time with the expectation that they will come on, I would rather we operate with the expectation that none will make so we don’t overly pressurise them and if one does make it then treat it as a bonus.

    Spoof @ 22. If you look at my post at 7, Dier is the first one to be brought in, to replace Saylor, this window. We then bring in another new one in January to Replace Collo with a 3rd new one next summer to replace Willo.

    That leaves us with MYM, Dier and 2 further CB’s by January 2016, but only introducing 1 per window, to give us some cohesion and a natural progression.

    If the potential CB’s coming through our system now, are not able to play in the 1st team by January 2016, they should be shipped out.

    fingers crossed that we get him and 1 or 2 develope, it’s an age since we developed 1 or 2 top class players, this can’t go on forever so lets hope that now is when that time changes.

    Yo-Yo can’t go naming stands after nufc fans have passed away. I’m sure there has been millions of nufc fans that have passed in tragic accidents. In fact im sure there has been hardcore fans that have probably passed away in St.James park before so what about them?

    A stand may be going too far but something memorable would be appropriate.

    I’d be satisfied with either Danny Ings or Connor Wickham, both in the last year of their contract and have been pretty prolific, i reckon we could get one of them for around £5mil.

    Centre half, we could get Jamaal Lascelles, young and english, looked very good for Forest last season. I reckon £8mil should get him, if m’biwa leaves then we could just loan lascelles back out.

    And winger we could get another english player, Wilfried Zaha is available for around £6mil, would take him.

    £19mil on three talented young english players, is that too much to ask ashley?

    We are in desperate need of a 15-20 goal striker to get us fighting for the european league places. The options are slim as most players will want to be playing european football, eg Lacazette, Remy, Lukaku Aubamayang…etc. We need to focus on realistic options who maybe have not experienced this yet & can be convinced we can provide it or players with a point to prove.
    On top of my list would be Benteke, big, strong, fast & proven in the premier league. Villa need money to re-invest in the quad & with Lerner looking to sell we could snag a bargain especialy as he is recovering from a ruptured achilles tendon. Welbeck would be back up, point to prove, will want a striker role as opposed to the wing,could be cheap as Van Gaal has a clear out & we need to be realistic with our options. Anybody with any other thoughts on realistic options who would be interested in joining us?

    I like the idea of signing Dier, think 4-5 mill would be about right. I’d try and get Good out to a championship side if possible as going from the SPL to the Premier League is a big step up, but I think he has a chance.

    Dier and Lascelles, both are good young centre backs. I’d still like to see Shawcross at a bigger club, but imagine Stoke will want stupid amounts for him.

    Thanks for the welcome back.

    My wife and I both had life threatening illnesses within three monts of each other last year and thanfully – God willing – we have both made a full recovery.

    I know I should have posted an explanation but to be honest I couldn’t bear to be accused of lying just because the season had turned so bad. I had more important things on my mind.

    Our experience and John Alder and Liam Sweeny’s tragic deaths brings home how fragile life is and how much more important your health and family is to you than football will ever be.

    Well it’s clear most on here have no interest in the future of English and NUFC football.
    Why do we need another striker.
    All strikers
    Then there is De Jong and Cabella and Ameobi who can all play as forwards.
    What sort of message does this send the younger elements of that list.
    Not to forget the man lots of people see as a Demi god HBA.
    You cannot have it both ways we either keep so called creative geniuses that a manager cannot use because of his inadequacies, and bring through the younger strikers.
    Or you accept that some players are simply not good or consistent enough and they need to be shipped out and replaced, and see the young strikers go away on loan with regularity and then see them sold off.
    Still the muppets on here will then be able to either slag of the manager or the owner. For most that appears to be the sole reason to follow NUFC.
    I SAY FOLLOW BECAUSE ITS NOT SUPPORT (look it up in a dictionary).
