Two Deals On The Burner For Newcastle This Week

Newcastle fans are simply fed up and angry at Newcastle´s position in the Premier League in 3rd bottom place.

In addition to that the terrible form the team has shown over the last 13 months has made it nothing short of a nightmare for the fans – make that a living nightmare for the fans.

And it was all topped off with a 3rd round exit in the FA Cup on Saturday at Watford – the fourth time in a  row we have been eliminated in the 3rd round.

So if the people who got us into this mess can move with some ambition and some urgency this month (yes – we know that´s asking a lot) and get three or four good players in then that would go a long way towards saving us from relegation and it could also (maybe) make the fans a bit happier too.

There is some good news in the Chronicle today that the club have held a high level transfer meeting this week with Chief Scout Graham Carr in Newcastle to talk through the targets with Managing Director Lee Charnley.

Whether the manager Steve McClaren was involved the report doesn´t say, but Steve seems to be on the outside looking in – which is ridiculous and one reason we are in the mess we are.

But that´s what he signed up for in June – Graham Carr is in charge of the transfers..

We are supposed to be wanting to sign two or three players in the January transfer window.

Mike Williamson and Shane Ferguson are close to moves out of the club and it seems the two players we want into the club this week if possible are Bordeaux’s Henri Saivet and Swansea City’s midfielder Jonjo Shelvey.

Those are both midfielders who can both play in central midfield.

We hope we can get both players into the club,  but we also need two strikers brought in this month – and the quicker the better.

And by Saturday night we will have played another two Premier League games and only have 16 to play, so the Newcastle Board had better get a move on.
