    It’s not so much the transfer fees but the wage bill that is the biggest thorn in the balance sheet. So removing players from that bill will be vital to maintain our financial clout. But putting our current spend into context it still means we have under spent over the last four years to the tune of £115m when you include money coming from transfers, gate money, sponsorship and TV rights. So yes £50m is a vast improvement but still a way to go for catch up !

    Five good signings now. This squad is finally very close to being deep and balanced enough to bear the weight and pressure of the club policy of only buying young and talented players as and when they become available, and offering those long contracts. It finally has the look of a squad and an approach that is finally up and running. I’m very interested in what Ashley does from here. If it continues, we can realistically hope to do well.

    if only one starts a rumour then I doubt but when many sources cover same story, such as the Thauvin one then I tend to believe them. No smoke without fire!

    Well Celtic made it difficult for themselves tonight. I was out with the Mrs and had a bit craic with a Celtic fan who was watching the game.
    Down here on business. ….
    Reckons Virgin is the business and they are gutted if he leaves.
    Suggested PL different kettle of fish to SPL but suggests he would be able to play in prem no bother.
    If we signed him that is..

    Floriian is clearly a clever guy . He’s delighted to be joining such a big club as Newcastle and his girlfriend’ s family make a really good beer to have with pasta. Sensible chap. Welcome !

    to Top 8 .

    Doesn’t surprise me if Van Dijk had a stinker tonight – clearly his head has been turned by the prospect of joining a big club.

    wdfta,
    I would like to know a few things about you if you don’t mind, to get a better judge of your character as I simply can’t work you out ?
    Where are you from, how old are you and are you a Christian fundamentalist ?

    Sorry to bring up abdennour again but If this mouth watering deal happens (and why can’t it) it COULD sort out our defensive problems. COULD before anyone jumps down my throat.
    With a back line of

    Jannmaat mbemba adbennour haidara/Jan transfer target/anita/dummett
    And since colo is pretty much untouchable moved to cdm like I know some of you have said in the past. Colo isn’t exactly known for his attacking prouess so could sit back allowing our full backs to press

    Krul
    Janmaat adbennour mbemba haidara
    Colo Colback
    Sissoko wijnaldum thauvin
    Mitrovic

    Aarons
    De Jong
    Saylor
    Darlow
    Cisse
    Anita
    Dummett

    Thauvin swap (plus £5m) for cabella is a sensible enough move to me. Not such a gamble. 3 yrs younger, 3 inches taller and didn’t fail to establish last year. I’m not so sure we need so much investment in defense. Surely part of the reason we’ve been turned over so many times in 3yrs is we’ve had no forwards or creativity to occupy the opposition?!

    Abdennour would make an incedible pairing with Mbember. Add willems and WOW.

    Can you imagine Arons and Thauvin ripping defences apart with Gini behind Mitrovic.

    Willems is Wini’s close friend.. plus he visited St. James’ alone just to watch his friend.. so NUFC just has to pay a fee here.. the lad has his heart here already.

    Localzero.

    We have had one of the worst defence since relegation season. Even wen we finished 5th we had a goal difference of +5.

    We need a new CB. COLO is good but we will b taking a risk Chelsea have taken on Terry and Ivanovic.

    Let sissoko go and get bring in Abdennour and Willens then next season get a real top class holdind midfielder, give Perez room to develop as he to will prove to be a top player if brought through gradually. Are we talking about the TOON here?
