A Treat For Newcastle Fans Tomorrow


Good news tonight that Chancel Mbemba’s visa has come through and he will be available to play against Borussia Monchengladbach in the final friendly of the season tomorrow afternoon.

The game kicks off at 3:00 pm at St. James’ Park and it will also be the home debut of new striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

So it should be a treat for those fans who can make it to the game tomorrow to see our two new signings in action.

Chancel Mbemba – visa has come through

This is the what has just been released on the Newcastle web-site:

Newcastle United can confirm that due to the nature of Saturday’s pre-season friendly against Borussia Mönchengladbach, the Club has obtained the necessary permissions in order for Chancel Mbemba to be involved in the squad to face the Bundesliga outfit.

The Club would like to thank Anderlecht for their co-operation in this matter.

The player has an appointment overseas in midweek to make his formal visa application, which the Club expect to be issued in order that he can be available for selection for the Magpies’ first game of the Barclay’s Premier League season against Southampton.

Cash turnstiles will be in operation at St. James’ Park for Saturday’s game (kick-off 3pm).

Click here for more details.

It’s also good news for coach Steve McClaren,  who will also be hoping to have Fabricio Coloccini fit to play for the first time this pre-season.

If both Coloccini and Mbemba can get 45 minutes in tomorrow afternoon with no ill effects, they could be the starting central defense against Southampton a week on Sunday.

Comments welcome.

    Colback Hate? I don’t hate him. I think he’s a very nice lad. He seems to like being a Newcastle player which gets him a lot of points as a mackem refugee.

    Completely agree with you selection of Lac, people saying he is not ready, but he wont get ready sitting on the bench, and lets be honest, he is as ready as Williamson

    Evening gents.

    Today for me was all about Sir Bobby! A true Geordie and the epitome of the word legend! RIP

    How are we all?! Looking forward to seeing Mbemba turn out in a toon shirt! I feel he is going to be a star for us!

    you make me laugh mate, so you wouldn’t be a happy olde fan if austin were to sign? more the merrier a say and very much doubt we will get another CB in, I’d prefer a classy LB and cover at RB

    Tudor
    if this team was managed normally, yes of course, i think austin is actually a little underrated. I have no idea why english guys a year or two younger are rated so much higher. HOWEVER, this is not a normal team. Cash is limited and we may only make one more splash. Lock up the CB and everything after that is gravy. I dont want austin used as an excuse why we didnt get a CB. that is the real need. We have 3 quality players than can play CF. We only have 1 CB for 2 spots.

    Tudor, I’m not saying I’m remotely in the know but I heard it from inside the club.

    To be fair I don’t think we need him either, I’d rather see us sign a winger and another CB from the EPL or Abdendour.

    We have 5 CB taco mate just 3 of them are useless and the other 2 untested, so I agree we could use a proven CB in our squad deffo.

    mike aint gonna look at it like that but I’d be happy if we even got a couple loan deals or there even must be some free agents out there, we’ve already missed out on a few that are 100 times better than williamson

    Getting fed up with the Austin rumours,
    Sign him or stop talking about him,probably a way of not getting a couple of defenders over the line

    I personally think we’ll be okay at CB proving Mbemba comfortably transitions to the premier league and Colo stays fit and keeps his head in the game all through the season.

    @The Newcastle Armchair

    The visa hasn’t come through. He’s still an Anderlecht player. They have given special permission to allow him to play in the friendly.

    He could probably have left the country yesterday to go and get his visa, but then wouldn’t have been back in time for the game, so he’s going during the week.

    Seems to have gone quiet on the Surprise signing.
    If Austin turns up that’s no surprise.
    So who is the mystery man yet to be signed, yet to be unveiled.
    Any news , any ideas ?

    Great news, makes me look forward to this game even more!! Will we see the colo, Mbemba partnership? I really hope so. Colo might thrive off of an athletic partner. Especially one who is quick enough to watch the huge hole Colo leaves.

    Get a new CB and Austin and we r good to go. For a winger I wld use Perez or Aarons. Save the money for Thauvin.

    Abdennour and Austin Pliz. Charnely, Carr and Mcclaren make it happen.

    Sell Willo, Obertan, Marvuex, Goufrann and Abeid.
