Alan Pardew Trying to Raid Newcastle Again


We’ve seen a report like this last week,  and today there are a number of reports saying that Alan Pardew is again trying to raid his former club,  and this time left-back Paul Dummett is the target.

Paul has been injured all season, and is just coming back in training,  and he will then challenge Sadio Haidara for the starting position at left back.

The fact that Paul can also play at center-half,  surely means Newcastle will not be willing to sell the home town youngster.

It doesn’t surprise us that Alan Pardew is a fan of the player he introduced into the Newcastle first team over two and a half years ago,  and gave him a long contract last year.

Paul made his debut for Newcastle back in January of 2013 at Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup – a game we lost 2-0.

The fee Newcastle want for Dummett is said to be £8M, but Steve McClaren will be keen to take a look at Paul when he returns from his hamstring problems.

He could be fit enough to be considered for our next game at West Ham a week next Monday.

But we’d be very surprised if Newcastle are willing to sell the local lad leave, since we are already short of full backs.

Paul, plus Daryl Janmaat and Sadio Haidara are the only specialist senior full-backs at the club, and Dummett can also play at right back.

He’s played 51 times for Newcastle with two goals, and is a Welsh International, and a graduate of the Newcastle United Youth Academy.

There’s no way we should be selling Paul Dummett today.

What do you think?

    £8m for Dummett and £4m for Gouffran – Would be up there with Carroll for £35m in terms of getting value in a sale.

    He is not worth $8m… I’d sell him for that in a heartbeat however we are already short of fullbacks.

    Jib…Mbemba, Anita and Colback are supposed to be 3 pretty much nailed on starters for our new look team. Not cover for FB.

    “If” Willo is leaving, then Taylor is our back up CB.

    I recall 8 out of 10 on here who commented on our interest in Gomis saying he was useless and they didn’t want him.

    8 out of 10 also raved about Cabella before we signed him.

    Gomis’s physical style was always suited to the Prem just as Cabella’s lightweight style wasn’t.

    Shows how much notice should be taken of the so called football experts on here.

    Piracy is making cheap COPIES and selling them. These shirts had one single similarity. Black and white stripes. They were clearly NOT a cheap imitation of the real thing. They were an alternative option. Are they going to stop everyone in Newcastle from selling any black and white striped top? After all There are products out there that are black and white, but have nothing to do with nufc.

    Piracy? No. No. Thats just silly.

    I think it’s the Magpie part where the copyright saga came into it also, could be wrong though. Not 100%.

    It could be i suppose, but Magpies is just a nickname. I can’t see there being any grounds to prevent other people world wide from using it.

    Prodigy…Thanks. Thought it was something like that. Close to bringing in £100k (minus costs).

    I can see why it needed to be stamped down on. Weren’t the profits going to charity?

    I’d be surprised and gutted if Dummy went. As usual with any home-grown player, people get on his back as soon as he puts a foot wrong, forget he’s very young still, and forget his MOTM performances. Drives me nuts; we’re sh*ts on here sometimes.
    Keep Dummett – he’s exactly what we need more of.

    Apparantly it was a non profit shirt according to the group that made them.

    The shirts were bought at around £22 each from a sports shop and then badges attached I guess.

    Those Adidas tops are free to buy in any Sports Direct or JD Sports probably. It’s the badges what is naughty im guessing.

    just seen the link with Alex Mowatt. technically he would be an excellent addition, better ball retention and passing skills than any of our other midfielders bar Wijnaldum. has a sweet shot on him as well. great all round CM except maybe tackling. he’s not exactly rocket heeled either but quicker than Colback.
