It was a year ago that Newcastle were haggling over the price of then 18 year-old MK Dons central midfielder Dele Alli and in came Tottenham in late January and paid up the £5M MK Dons wanted and that left penny-pinching Newcastle in the lurch as we were trying to knock the price down.
How many times has that happened with Mike Ashley’s Newcastle since 2007?
Loic Remy – Spurs now want him on loan
The club has been run on a shoestring far too long and that’s now coming home to bite us big time over these last twelve months.
And more bad news for Newcastle today is that Spurs have become interested in Chelsea striker Loic Remy – who Newcastle were hoping to take on loan this month.
That news is in the People today with Spurs coming in to try to nab Remy on a loan deal until the end of the season and then perhaps make it a permanent signing this summer.
It’s clear that Tottenham are trying to strengthen up front to both support England striker Harry Kane and give him some competition too.
This will be bad news for Newcastle and Spurs over the last few years have remained one of the clubs fighting for a top four position as Newcastle have turned into a club fighting relegation.
It’s all very sad.
