Ciaran Clark At Training Ground After Completing Medical – Photo


Here’s the first photo evidence that Ciaran Clark is in Newcastle as he leaves the Benton training grounds after completing his medical.

It could well be a double announcement of the signing of both Ciaran and Mohamed Diame tonight or tomorrow morning  – with Diame seen entering Freeman Hospital this afternoon.

What a two days it’s been for Newcastle United and Rafa is certainly shaking things up for the better – long may it continue.

    Hail/Shirebrook

    Seeing as your having a problem picking the team I got a question for you which will totally do your heads in, once the team has been picked how will Rafa play that team, we all expect a 4-2-3-1 formation but how will he play it, seeing as we haven’t got that many wingers could he have the midfield three playing centrally trying to pick a pass to Gayle who will be full of movement and if we need width get it from the fullbacks, or will he keep it very tight at the back and go with some width with the midfield 3 and try to stretch them and have late runners getting into the box.

    Well at least it looks like we getting boots over the line this summer.
    Would still like a first choice Lb as all the current crop of Lb’s at the club are injury prone.

    Clark is a very decent CB for the Champs. We’re going to be much more solid at the back. Clark and Lascelles might be an interesting partnership. I’m a bit worried about 4-2-3-1 as well lads. Unless Aarons stays healthy and really shines we may need another winger to pair up with Ritchie.

    Strange goings on with Thaujam. Spend all that time setting up a deal to ship him to Italy for some fresh pasta and virgin olive oil and then he sulks and says he doesn’t want to go? Bollocks…..

    Yes, I think Janmaat could be a winger at a pinch Phatoon mate. He doesn’t like defending anyway. 😆

    With Brighton signing Pritchard I fully expect them to let knockaert leave for us to give us a choice of 3 wingers plus Roberts in the youth team who will be better than all of them.

    Pretty much strengthened every position except LW. It would be great if we sign a striker and a winger but i’d be happy enough with just the later.
    I hope Rafa doesn’t end up playing Perez LW again and Arrons will be injured after 3 games so i’d say this is our weakest position now.

    Not much info available on Roberts except he played for the Whitley Bay Sproggs. No performance data. He’s 19.

    This story about Rafa and couple of young madrileños is a funny one.
    Earlier in the month some Spanish media reported that Rafa had enquired about Borja Mayoral (the new Raul) for a season’s loan.
    Last week Mayoral went to Wolfsburg for a season which seemed a snub to Rafa.
    I hope Rafa and Perez who cordially detest other stop playing silly buggers and sort out what is being called in Spain “Operacion Sissoko”

    If we finally sell Sissoko possibly we’ll go after McCormack again? I think he would be the perfect fit for us.

    I don’t think he’ll be 4th string Taco mate. Statistically, he’s better than Mbemba in most aspects of the game. He’ll be pushing Lascelles and Hanley for a starting place. Mbemba has to improve.

    Have you missed the last 8+ years of newcastle’s injury record? Just be happy to have depth now.

    Mbemba and Lascelles for first choice id reckon, would think Mbemba would have wanted reassurances of playing this season to stay here..

    Kilcline often comes on at this time of year and flexes his e-muscles. Last season (or the one before) he had a pop at me and a few others for having an opinion that did not match his. I think it was about a player who we were after. Anyway, just ignore it.

    I think Mbemba is going to have a hard go of it keeping his starting place JD mate. Just looked at a stats analysis and Clark is better in most aspects of defending. With Rafa I don’t think you get any guarantees of starting.

    @ G2 re Aaron’s. I was paying particular attention to him on Monday training and when he was practicing putting over crosses he couldn’t do it and they were flying well over the centre forwards heads. Rafa walked over to him and was telling him what he wanted and the little git walked away. Rafa was clearly annoyed with him and whispered something in his ear. Aaron’s obviously listened this time and his crosses immediatelyinproved with Rafa patting him on the back. You don’t mess about with Rafa.
    It was also noticeable that Thaurin wasn’t upto the training and appears to be missing his girlfriend who has insisted she does not want to live in the north east as she likes France. I would suggest he gets himself a good Geordie girl must be one out there.

    We’re getting close to being strong enough and deep enough to win this thing lads. Another striker, LB, LW, AMF, utility forward, utility defender, spare utility forward/defender and spare utility GK/defender and we’ll have taken care of business. Harrumph!
