Newcastle Could Appeal Emergency Loan Decision


Newcastle’s initial overtures to the Premier League for an emergency goalkeeper last week were rejected out of hand, but the Mail are now reporting that Newcastle may go back and argue their case again.

Jak Alnwick Giroud header

Jack Alnwick – no chance with this Giroud header

Newcastle didn’t play well on Saturday at Arsenal and Jak Alnwick looked a little nervous in goal, and was beaten by two shots from narrow angles from Cazorla and Giroud in the second half, but they were also well taken goals.

To be fair to Jak, he had no chance with the other goals – a great (but) unchallenged header from Giroud after 15 minutes, and a penalty from Cazorla with a couple of minutes to go – and the stats show that Arsenal had four shots on target in the game.

Alan Pardew is hoping Jak will take what is a great opportunity for him, since his contract is up at the end of June:

“He is the sort of guy you would want to do it. He’s a good, honest guy, humble and another local.”

“I can probably look at one Arsenal goal and say Jak may have been at fault.” “Other than that I thought he was pretty sound.”

And we wouldn’t be too surprised if there’s some discussion going on behind the scenes at Newcastle, about what to do about the goalkeeper situation.

That’s because we have tough games coming up at Tottenham (Capital One Cup), Manchester United, Leicester City (FA Cup) and Chelsea.

We also have some tough home games against Sunderland, Everton and Burnley before mid-January so there are five Premier League games and games in the Capital One Cup and FA Cup – before either Rob Elliot or Tim Krul are likely to be fit.

That could be our season right there, as to how we fare in those games, and before we had the injury to Rob Elliot Alan Pardew had said the December games could make or break our season.
.
The PL said we don’t qualify for an emergency loan because we have three contracted goalkeepers – Karl Darlow, Jak Alnwick and Freddie Woodman, and you can only have one to get an emergency loan deal for a goalkeeper.

Newcastle could argue that Karl Darlow is not available since we cannot recall him from his loan at Nottingham Forest, and therefore shouldn’t count, and we would win that one.

But we still have two professional goalkeepers under contract in Jak and Freddie, and one would have to get injured to qualify.

We could make an ordinary loan deal for a goalkeeper on January 1st, but by then we would expect Rob or Tim to be fit again – or very close to it.

It’s a difficult situation for Newcastle to be in, and that’s why most big Premier League clubs always have three experienced goalkeepers in their squads, so they can easily deal with situations like Newcastle now face.

What do you think?

    I think they are having an illicit online affair masquerading as NUFC supporters in order to dupe their individual partners whilst using me as their patsy. Notice how neither us on the blog today.

    Very suspicious.

    What’s going on tonight.
    Expat -has been on for a few minutes an no rucks – must be a record.
    The fool as usual squealing like a nipped piglet.

    Expat is clearly upset that he cannot pursue his snifting tonight and to follow his hero Sid the Sexist.
    I recall many years ago, when expat lived at Low Fell (part of Gateshead) there had been several reports in his street and surrounding streets of theft of ladies lingerie from washing lines.
    A police surveillance operation was later successful when expat was caught red handed in the back gardens. The local paper reported that the “Gateshead Gussett sniffer” had been aprehended.

    I think Rodgers could well get the sack at Liverpool at the end of the season, which might coincide nicely with Pardew resigning if we don’t progress as hoped. Not that I think Pards has been poor overall, if anything more the opposite, just that after 4 fairly tumultuous seasons it might be time for all parties for a change, and I think Rodgers and Newcastle would be a good match, football philosophy wise. Pardew has aged, perhaps not entirely like wine, but certainly not like bread. He might even get offered a plum job, not a big one, but a nice offer none the less.

    Japanese Beer is consistently excellent, Yebisu in particular, as is the Scotch, recently voted worlds best. Actually, the Japanese seem capable of improving on pretty much anything. They’d probably have the best football team in the world if they weren’t so teeny tiny, although doubtless they’ve got a team of swots working round the clock in a lab somewhere on that very problem as we speak.
