Update On Newcastle January Target

1:56 pm, Thursday, December 3rd, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 11 Comments

There have been different reports about whether Tottenham Hotspur will allow Andros Townsend to go on loan this January and it seems like Andros wants to leave the north London club after his altercation with fitness coach Nathan Gardiner.

That was probably started because of Townsend’s frustration at getting so little playing time at Spurs.

Spurs talented manager Mauricio Pochettino has said the winger still has a future at Tottenham who are having a very good second season under the Argentine and they are currently 5th top of the Premier League on 25 points.

Spurs winger Andros Townsend – Newcastle target

Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy has said his piece on the 24 year-old England International winger Levy at Tottenham’s members’ forum:

“If the football side say it affects equilibrium of the squad if we have a player that doesn’t want to be here then we look at it,” “In the end, it’s up to Mauricio to decide who he does or doesn’t want.”

Sunderland are interested in the player but if big Sam Allardyce goes after him it would have to be  a straight sale.

Tottenham right-back DeAndre Yedlin has already moved to Sunderland on loan and they are only allowed to have one player from Tottenham on loan.

With Newcastle being in a worrying position already this season after 14 games – we are second bottom of the league on just 10 points – we are hoping a number of good players will be drafted in to try to save us this season and keep us in the Premier League.

Andros would be a great acquisition for us.

It’s a worrying time right now for the (very) long-suffering Newcastle fans and we hope the powers that be at the club do everything they can to not only save us this season – but to make Newcastle great again.

At the moment unless things change quickly we don’t have much hope of that happening.

🙁

But you never know.

Comments welcome.

    Just what we need a player surplus to requirements elsewhere, I’m sure he’ll thrive under Collos ‘leadership’

    Least it’s a winger and has something to prove

    Ah just what we need – a workshy slackjawed want away troublemaker. Fits the bill perfectly.

    I had to chuckle at Jib’s response when asked the definition of a true fan.

    Even his response to that was sourced directly from Google!

    that was a great line up you did but i’d remove jesper and JFA.

    owner JFA- certainly has a huge demand and I can’t think of all bloggers he seem to react most angrily at those posting things he doesn’t like. so if you get a manager acting like jibs or welsh he’ll certainly get in there face and warn them.

    manager jesper- some might have thought catchy would have been the one i’d go with but when looking at posts jesper himself looks like the most consistant talker about managers and although he is against ashley I think he has the greatest belief of a decent one still getting appointed. Rotanta can be his assistant

    I fear total humiliation Liverpool gonna dish out on Sunday.

    A massive thrashing by Liverpool will all but seal our position in the championship next season. I can’t see a single player in the club who can be mentally strong after a demolishing defeat. Sorry.

    Last chance for Schteve tom show he has some modicum of gumption against Liverpool. If he goes with the same back 4 then he’s an idiot beyond any unit of measurement.

    Shake it up Schteve, we won’t grumble half as much if you just try something bloody different instead of consigning us to inevitable defeat with the same personnel and formation. Personally I’d go with defenders in defence, revolutionary, I know, tell them to do nought but defend, no galavanting up the wing to no end, no roaming around and chasing the ball down, just keep the shape, keep it simple. Mbemba (admittedly with very little time at RB) and Mbabu have been the best fullbacks this season at doing a fullbacks primary job, cutting the supply lines off. Dummet is a CB and nothing else, so lets allow him to play there regularly for a while and see if he can redeem himself, Willo the saviour is back and at least he visibly attempts to organise and communicates.
    _______________Elliot_______________
    Mbemba___Willo____Dummet___Mbabu
    _______________Colback
    Janmaat________Sissoko________Thauvin
    _______________Wijnaldum
    _______________SDJ

    Janmaat needs to be played at RW, it’s obvious that’s where he would be most effective. Sissoko,despite the naysayers, is just as hit and miss at RW as he is at CM, we’re gonna need a ball carrier on the counter and he was always most impressive to me driving from deep with space to run into and it will allow him to link with Janmaat as usual and maybe lend a hand to Thauvin as well. Thauvin the only one to give a solitary shite against Palace, needs to be given another chance from the off. Wijnaldum in the position he was bought for and burst on to the PL scene playing. SDJ has to be given a chance, lauded as a leader, a talent, so give him an opportunity to show it. His intelligent movement with Gini could be fruitful, or it could mean the ball coming back at us wave after wave, but then that’s been the case no matter the strikeforce recently, so give it a shot.

    Mr Ashley, heed and note the words of Daniel Levy:

    “In the end, it’s up to Mauricio to decide who he does or doesn’t want.”

    Mr Ashley. – he doesn’t suffer fools and is no slouch when it comes to running a football club. It would do Newcastle United a power of good to follow his example.
