Newcastle Fans React On Twitter To Townsend Deal


Here are some of the sampling of Newcastle fans excitement at the news today that personal terms and a fee have been agreed for the transfer of Andros Townsend to Newcastle and the 24 year old seems so exited to join Newcastle and said once he knew Newcastle United  were interested in him we were the only club he wanted to join.

We always knew he was a good lad.

    Not like if we hadn’t have forked out on Townsend the money would have been used elsewhere. We’d have likely just get thauvin if history is anything to go by…
    On the left, AT is 10x the player that Gouffran, Obertan, Ameobi, Cabella (based on nufc form) and Thauvin (based on nufc form) are!!! Its a massive strengthening whether you rate the guy or not.
    Sorry but people complaining about Townsend need to remember we’ve suffered gouffran for nigh on 100 appearances, most at left wing.
    This is progress, improvement and a sign that the manager is finally getting players the squad needs rather than more number 10’s…

    I like that Townsend is brave enough to take a man on and have a go. Same as Shelvey is brave enough to try a killer pass.
    Add a striker and we’re looking good going forward.
    Townsend and Sissoko on the wings, Gini as number 10, Shelvey as number 8, is very attack minded!
    Wasnt long ago we witnessed an awful mid and attack of
    Colback anita
    Obertan sissoko gouffran

    Well no one can complain Mash hasn’t spent plenty of money, shame he let us get so run down in the first place.
    I hope it’s not too late, we could easily still go down, we need a proven striker, without goals bye bye premier league.

    Reading Townsends comments. He’s being brought in to play left wing.

    Hopefully we’ll now have a bit more balance if he can attack down the left.

    A decent LB behind him wouldnt go a miss though.

    ————————Elliott———————-
    Janmaat—-Mbemba—–Colo—–Dummet
    —————-Saivet—-Shelvey—————
    Sissoko————-Gini————Townsend
    ———————Mitrovic———————-

    On paper, that is the best team we’ve had in years. Better than the one that finished 5th.

    Surely that should be enough to survive and then some. Over to you Schteeve.

    I genuinely hope the period between the end of the delirious tweeting and the start of the booing is longer than it was with our last two wingers.
    It will be all the same people too.

    @wwsbrd – god I forgot Jonas too. Love the guy but he could barely pass or shoot.
    Never seen AT left wing but it makes sense, the guy is rapid and can strike a ball.
    Must have played well at some point to get an england call up despite not playing for man utd, Arsenal or Liverpool…

    Agreed,

    Yes AT isnt a showstopper but at the very least he’ll run and cause a problem on the right for the first time since Jonas dropped back into the championship

    I think Townshend will prove a brilliant buy – talented bloke.
    Not counting chickens yet but if this does go through AND we get either Berahino or Remy then I will be chuffed to bits.
    Not only would we see an improvement in results it would strong evidence that the club have actually changed strategy.
    These players aren’t like our previous panic splurges to stay up. These are a statement of “let’s go win stuff”.
    Long way to go yet though.

    Hey mate say what u like about Jonas in regards to stats but other teams were scared of him. He was a player who brought out the best in others aswell

    Utterly loved him wish we had kept him and once Ashley finally does one I hope he comes back to coach or manage (him and Colo future management team? Haha)

    Lgfaud21 that’s definitely the formation just require a lb for definate and colo is to inconsistent still think we need a 6 ft 3 left footed centre back, who I don’t know though. Those to positions are now a must to stay up!

    Levy has outdone the Marseilles guy for putting one over us. Spurs fans are loving this. 12M is an absolute joke. Perez and Aarons, even Thauvin are better players than this headless chicken.

    If we’ve got 12M where is the speedy goal scorer, the top CB and LB?? Another totally unnecessary signing. Charnley, carr and SM need sacked asap. Shocking lack of football knowledge.

    So we needed a goalscorer and a commanding CB in the summer. We’ve spent £100m and got neither. The limit of Carr’s imagination is Loic Remy (again) and Andros Townsend. WTF is going on? You couldn’t make it up. Is it any wonder we’re in the relegation zone with Carr and Charnley in charge? GET A STRIKER, YOU MUPPETS.

    If this is true, you’d have to say we’ve bought very well the last two windows. Maybe we might have done more in the close season, and Thauvin is a mystery, but hindsight is always twenty twenty. We do need a left back, but Dummett is solid defensively, and with Townsend ahead of him, there is going to be less urgency for him to push on. So maybe that can wait, but Cisse does need replacing though, and this window. He’s been pretty hopeless for about 80% of his time here, and that’s no good at all from a centre forward and particularly one for a side that desperately needs goals.

    It’d be shocking if this group did actually go down, particularly as there is now the makings of a very decent side, a top 8 side, but we are certainly very much in real trouble, even with Townsend and Shelvey, and even if we did get Remy, and that would be quite remarkable and tragic and ironic, given the spending, and what now appears a genuine attempt to build a good competitive side, at a club that truly deserves one. We only have 15 games to save ourselves.

    BandB. From previous thread.

    I agree that Ashley has had no intentions of throwing his own money into the club for a long time and that he has gambled with the clubs PL survival. However it does appear that now the club is self funding, he is allowing the proceeds to be spent on the team.
    Although he won’t allow us to spend our way back into debt I think we will have more spending power than many other PL clubs and this should surely be enough to give us half a chance of putting together a competetive team.
    Leicester have shown what can be achieved with a shrewd scouting network without crazy spending and surely this is an area that needs addressing. With teams like Chelsea and Man. Utd having spent 100’s of millions and not looking like they got any sort of value , competent recruitment looks like the best road to success.
    As long as Ashley continues to allow the surplus to be re invested which is not guaranteed to happen, then I think this is the best we can hope for.

    B&B, Rotunda – I sort of get what you are saying in that of course we need better defensive players and – DUH – a striker.
    But recent form suggests the former can wait – at a push – and the club openly acknowledge the latter as their priority.
    The order in which players arrive does not reflect their priority to the club! Why is that so often misunderstood?
    (And Rotunda – your opinion of AT’s ability is about as well-informed as it is helpful. FFS man.)

    I think there is quite a bit of brinksmanship going on behind closed doors in regards to Berahino. All the rumour mill talk has moved back to Lacazette, or Remy. I’m not sure which one I would prefer to have at this point.

    Remy – plagued with injuries this term, not much match time. Knows the club, and the club knows Remy is a merc. If he’s fit, he’ll score goals.

    Berahino – how close to match fitness is he? And will his attitude (perceived attitude that is), be brought with him into the NUFC locker room? Can’t comment on his goal scoring this season as he really hasn’t been given enough games to rack any sort of tally up. Could just be a one season wonder, but he has shown that he can score in the BPL.

    Lacazette – Not quite showing the form of the last two seasons. Gini, from midfield has outscored him. Could possibly be a gem of a signing, but our record of late with signings from France is poor. If he’s so good, why has another club not come in for him?

    Two of the three are going to cost upwards of £22, and one is a loan only.

    I say take Remy on loan, then take the £22, plus whatever, and make a cheeky offer for John Stones. Everton might just sell… *yah right*

    We will go a chunk of the way to balancing this, as the Thauvin deal will likely go ahead now.
    We are trying VERY hard to get the Tiote deal done.
    So we still need striker. Though they may believe that Townsend will double Mitrovic’s effectiveness.

    If we don’t buy a striker, one month from now, the blog will be wall to wall “why didn’t we buy a striker, a CB and a goalkeeper FFS!!!!”

    Wait and see.

    Nobody can accuse Ashley of not trying to make our own luck. Carr and Schteve are the problems.

    Glad Townsend is coming in. Those that believe Aarons or Thauvin are better are genuinely deluded, blurring the lines between their computer games and reality.

    Rotonda…….. Townsend has shown some flashes of brilliance for England and was consistently very good at QPR.
    Redknap rates him, Mc C obviously rates him and Roy Hodgson who is a well respected man also rates him.
    Perhaps when Hodgson goes you should throw your hat in the ring for the England job if you think you know better.
