Newcastle May Have Decent Chance Of Signing This Star Striker


It seems that any chance of Newcastle getting in top Anderlecht striker Aleksandar Mitrovic or Burnley’s Danny Ings will have little chance of success,  simply because  much bigger clubs than Newcastle are after those top players.

Queens Park Rangers v West Bromwich Albion - Premier League

Charlie Austin – 25 year-old QPR striker

However, we may have a chance of getting Charlie Austin from QPR, especially if QPR are relegated again, in their first season back in the Premier League.

We will no doubt be linked with many players over the summer months, but with the club having such a terrible second half of the season,  it’s going to now be difficult to get our top transfer targets to Tyneside.

The Sun are reporting that Newcastle are interested in signing the 25 year-old former Burnley and Swindon Town striker.

Wherever he’s played Charlie has always been able to score goals, and this season he has 17 goals in just 29 Premier league appearances – so he has shown he can score goals at the very top level.

£10M is the figure  being reported in the Sun for Charlie – a player Newcastle had been interested in when he was coming through the lower divisions.

We should stand a decent chance of getting Charlie, always assuming no big club comes in for him, and it would certainly be an excellent signing for Newcastle to get the 6’2″ striker on Tyneside.

He would become a very popular player at Newcastle, especially if he keeps scoring those goals – and he’s a born goalscorer after all.

While at Swindon Town from 2009-2011 he scored 37 goals in 65 appearances, at Burnley over the next couple of seasons he scored 45 goals in 90 games, and at QPR he has so far scored 37 goals in 67 appearances.

And at Newcastle from 2015-2017 he scored a sensational 61 goals in just 62 appearances and rocketed the Magpies into the Champions League.

We wish!

    If you’ve got sky turn on the telly right now and see how this top striker fares with mediocre support! If he scores though I’ll admit I don’t see the big picture I think I will even go to Fenwicks and see if they can sell me one ha ha

    Not a chance in hell. Half the prem will want him. We will sign unknown foreign players who use the club as a stepping stone. Something the fat controller loves coz it means a tasty profit

    I just don’t understand how QPR are still in the game and matching Chelsea, what with only 20000 fans in the stadium.

    On a Sony Ericsson Xperia mate. The desktop site is a pain in the arse on mobile.

    Chelski have gone right off the boil lately, the same as citeh. Arsenal are looking strong and are only 4 points of em. Wonder what the odds are of arsenal winning the title now?

    Glad I’m watching on a none sky sports stream otherwise I’d be subjected to the commentators swooning over that courtais save. Phillips should of scored.

    It’s too bad for Carver, he’s not up to the job but the squad we have is full of players not good enough either so John doesn’t deserve all the blame. 1 fit CB and it’s Willo, that says it all really.

    I know its a long shot but i think we have a decent chance if we crawl to pardew of maybe getting shola back as our main striker for next season with nufc ambition maybe its a tall order and the transfer fee might be a stumbling block

    What QPR lack in skill they more than make up for in endeavour (in this match anyway) must be that small club mentality when up against the big boys and it being a derby.

    Bit like us really.

    What I don’t get is that the fans seem to think money grows on trees. Any business needs to make a profit in order to invest. There’s a limit to how much you can borrow.

    Why do people think that boycotts, protests and other statements will have no effect? Many kingdoms and governments have been toppled by mass protests so with enough support anything is possible.

    Ashley takes more than enough out of the club, free advertising being a huge one….so surely we should expect something back.

    Too many people fall for the PR spin that Ashley saved the club from Bankruptcy. Where does this information come from, the man himself, of course he will tell us he saved us and we should be grateful.

    He has doubled our debt during his time here whilst making the squad weaker. This on the back of 2 huge new TV deals. How do people not see this.

    It’s the support I think alot of of people are questioning (maybe because they won’t be supporting it themselves unless they know for sure it’ll have an impact)

    …it’s a catch 22!

    That’s only natural, you have the hardcore believers in the cause who would protest alone. Then the rest are on a sliding scale of needing to see some support of different levels before joining in.

    By hopefully maintaining the campaign, as a few organisers have said, we can attract more and more fans to the protests.

    What a shock. Some fat cat is protecting his fat cat mate, who’d have though it ey.

    I’ve not been on here much recently, can you let me know some details of the protests at Leazes Park? Also anywhere to sign up to some mailing list for updates?

    NUFC Stats (on twitter) and AO.com seem to be taking the lead for the protests. I’m guessing this is the calm before the storm, get Liverpool out the way and then concentrate on Spurs.

    Leazes Park meet is 30 minutes before kick-off.

    Not sure of anything else at the minute tbh.

    We should not have done that!

    The rules of Monopoly clearly state that the purpose of the game is to make as much money as possible.

    Oh….is Blackley following the wrong game?

    Freddy Shepherd had the club on the road to ruin with rash, inflated signings like Boumsong and Owen. He and his cronies also milked the club with salries and dividends whereas Ashley has spent an absolute fortune.

    The idea that the club’s lost out massively on advertising is far fetched. It’s just a petty argument. Our commercial income still outstrips the Mackem’s. How much do they get for advertising?

    B and B
    If the fans owned NUFC 100%, where would they get the money from to invest? Would they mortgage their houses to buy players? Don’t think so. Almost every club in all leagues have been starved of success and can’t compete with the few. NUFC has sold its best players throughout its history. Despite being massive, it’s never won a domestic trophy in over 60 years. It probably won’t for another 60 years unless it gets the backing of an oil rich state or gets some brilliant management that blows others out of the water.

    Get in City!
