Newcastle Want Manchester United Striker

Newcastle United are being linked with 19 year-old Manchester United striker James Wilson on loan next season,according to sources on the Sport in A Storm web-site.

James Wilson

James Wilson – 19 year-old Man United striker

Apparently the Red Devils are looking for a good club to send James to for next season on loan, where he can get games in the Premier League, and Newcastle may be a good target.

The report suggests that Newcastle would be willing to take the teenager on loan for the full season.

But of course while that would be good for Newcastle for one season, it’s really benefiting the Red Devils, and if James is as good as we think he can be, Newcastle would have no chance of signing him long term.

We found that out with Loic Remy, that once they saw how Newcastle are run by Mike Ashley – where money is the only important thing  and we have limited ambitions, they want to move onto a bigger club.

Remy is now with Chelsea and Yohan Cabaye and Mathieu Debuchy are other examples of that and they are now at PSG and Arsenal respectively.

The teenager has made 17 appearances for the Red Devils with four goals over the last two seasons, and he is a gifted player with a good eye for goal and he has played for the England Youth teams through the U20 level.

If Steve McClaren is made Newcastle boss in the summer – surely it cannot be John Carver – then that would also be a positive from Manchester United’s viewpoint, with Steve still having close ties with his former club.

And of course if Newcastle had thought out of the box, they could have tried to get James in during the January transfer window – because we are very short of strikers at the moment.

But that would have also meant Newcastle would have needed to spend money – sorry – but I’m just not thinking right this morning.


We have no idea if this report is accurate at all, but it’s at least interesting and even positive for Newcastle.

    Copied from Dead Thread
    Now is the time for us all to be united and inflict some pain on the FatOne – Rangers have done it but Im afraid there are too many ‘Support the team’; ‘He holds all the cards’ and ‘it wont make a difference’ people out there who believe that by shoulting a bit of abuse is going to change the way teh club is run.

    We all agree (big suppostion) that FatAsh is driven by money alone. If that is the case a boycott will drive down revenue – even if you have a season ticket, an empty seat beamed around the world does the SportsShite reputation no good. Spuds is a televised match – if you must watch the dross – do it in a pub….. at least you can drink and watch at the same time.

    jury out on Obertan, we have had 4 years of dross from him.
    the other 3 yes, need a real coach to get the best out of them,

    a couple of games ago, Rivi was our loan forward, I checked his heat map after the game, he never got in the box, same for all our forwards, they spend very little time in the box, so how are they meant to score goals,, this is all coaching.
    Sammy is a winger, with no one in the box, will we ever see him at his best.
    Jonas, I know is a good player that gives 100% , but again does what the coach asks him to do,,

    I have said all season we have good players, they need good coaching, as the coaches and tactics make them look bad.

    I would build my team around Abeid, this kid is really good

    Wouldn’t want him on loan, but would more than happily have him as another young lad coming through. Only if we signed a proven goalscorer/someone who has done it at a higher level on a regular basis. If we got rid of Cisse (and Rivi) and brought in Wilson, Mitrovic and austin I’d be a fairly happy man.

    Now, back to reality….

    the thing with obertan is he is a guy who has blistering pace but is so, so frustrating and maybe you’re right, if SAF couldn’t get anything out of him either, he should hit the bricks too.

    Abeid was one of our best players last night. He had 4 shots which is probably more than Gooff, Sammy, Anita, Riviere, & Obertan have had all season between them.

    Why get Man Uts 19 year old in to block progress of our more talented 18 year old Armstrong.

    No coincidence that Man Utd want to hoover up Danny Ings so that he doesn’t cause any threat to them by joining and playing for a new club next season. He becomes the bench warmer at Old Trifford and James Wilson moves further down the Reds pecking order so loan him out to see how he develops and get NUFC to pay his wages.
    It’s a cartel – the top clubs in Europe protect their own backsides by such dealings – its surprising that upstarts such as Southampton have actually been able to make them feel uncomfortable.

    that expression ”support the team, not the regime” is daft. Surely even the meanest intelligence can see that one is not possible without the other.

    one of the things I dislike most about him is his lack of work rate , even though he only has speed as an asset , he could do a lot more damage by just using that , instead he thinks he is Ronaldo and loses the ball, then never tracks back

    lazy player

    rotunda – would agree but there are still those out there who feel that by attending and supporting the team they are not assisting the Slug!

    In the same way season ticket holders believe that they cant contribute to a boycott as the slug already has their money!

    I’m convinced ( deluded ? ) that the Refs are deliberately not making the right decisions this season or deliberately avoiding them in order to force the introduction of TV refs. Imagine the fun they will have in snazzy new sponsored kit, profiled by the pundits and even wearing mini cams. Just like both Rugby codes they will be able to take centre stage , make the sign of the TV by waving their hands in the air and shouting ” refer upstairs” . The TMO teams and TV monitor reviews will become the norm – all part of the 1984 style control exerted by the TV companies.
    And as to Lee Mason do we have his apology or excuse yet ? ( thought not ) Of course not , couldn’t upset the end of season battle on TV for the top four places could we ?
    Will he be relegated ? ( thought not )

    Isn’t it the case though that the team has rather less potential than it had at the start of the season, when it also needed three or four extra players and when it did have a proper manager (whatever our views on him)?

    I’m sure the view that things just need a bit of tweaking is still a popular one.

    Do you think these issues are close to being addressed? And is the jury really still out on Obertan?

    With the boycott being publicised and going round via word of mouth, I just can’t understand if people go in to the ground against Spurs. It’s a chance to show our disapproval at Ashley.

    I really hope people go to the park instead.

    When I seen the headline I assumed we were talking about signing Hernandez ….. na he will probably go to a team who can afford him like Southampton or Palace

    We need to get Moussa (when he is back) on the right. He doesnt have the shooting ability and creativity to play through the middle and he cant use his power and pace due to how crowded that area of the pitch is. We need a cabaye to be able to hit them from distance or to pick a pass to our forwards, when Jaanmat played the ball over the top to Perez and he had a good header saved was the first type of ball in behind i have seen for a long long time. The closest player we have is de jong but he is injured so the next in line for me is Abied who has decent shooting and passing ability. I think Moussa on the right and Abied in an advanced role with perez in front and Aarons on the left (please come back soon) would be our best team. Keep Anita Lb as he was decent enough last night and Coldback is a must in the middle. Get R taylor our of the team and rip his contract up as he has to be the worst rb ever seen at the club (thats including Danny Simpson!!!)

    I do wish you’d stop promoting me as some kind of surrepticious undercover Ashley aficionado.

    You can’t deny that in the likes of Abeid, Aarons, Perez, possibly Armstrong etc we do possess some rough diamonds with enormous potential to develop if they receive the right type of coaching.

    This would preferably be from a modern, progressive, continental technical coach who preached attacking, free flowing, pass and move football, not to be forever shackled and stifled in a dated, defensive, containment imposed by the current incumbents.

    I do think a lack of a good coaching staff has shown some players in a very poor light and that is 100% Ashley’s fault.

    Pardew very kindly chose to leave us in a relatively comfortable place in the table and conveniently close to a transfer window.

    One would have imagined that if Ashley felt a surge of liberation from his shackles he would have immediately used the opportunity to bring in a transformative manager and given him the means to bring in “three or four players.”

    Instead, the club praised Pardew as a sad loss, and emphasised the need for continuity.

    Before off-loading yet more players.

    James Wilson on loan for a season – Yes.

    OK, so if he really makes progress, ManU will want him back, but we will have had the benefity of him for a season at minimal cost.

    We don’t have enough young players coming through to argue that he is blocking the progress of our own youngsters.

    And, if he is good, but not the star quality required by ManU, he may still be a good proposition for us.
