Newcastle Fans React On Twitter To Murphy Signing

12:01 pm, Sunday, August 28th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 13 Comments

Newcastle fans took to Twitter after the signing of 33 year-old Daryl Murphy was announced around 10:00 am this Sunday morning.

He will probably be our 4th striker, but he adds some height and strength up front – he could be exactly what we need this season and we assume it’s a two year deal?

It’s interesting Rafa pointed out he has a good attitude – all the players coming in this summer seem to have very good attitudes and temperaments.

    Maybe Ed was right and 2 Gouffys were on last night!

    Maybe we have a cunning plan – buy who we need, get the rest of our deals first, under the radar, then last minute sell the twisty-faced sisulko for as much as we can get and keep the funds for January?
    Rafa has clearly identified the positions to strengthen and has a few back up players to buy, Murphy a prime example. If we had 25 million plus for Le Sulk, everyone would beholding out for more of that cash!

    We all dream of a team of Yoan Goufffs

    I would guess that Lazaar and Atsu will be the next and possibly final signings.

    I would try and sell Sissoko for the same price as Wijnaldum.

    Also, i have just seen a tweet saying that Tiote is going to Galatasary for £1.5million.

    If you look at the players on the final year of their contract (Gouffran, Dummett, Tiote and Anita), I think 3 will be here for the promotion push but probably won’t get a new contract. Tiote will be sold, hopefully with Sissoko and Rivieire

    lordy – are you happy with Murphy signing?

    Getting nervous on the Lazaar signing. Want official confirmation ASAP. I seriously think we will be getting a gem of a player with him. Very fast, tricky and tenacious. Is going to be a fan favourite soon.

    it would be very foolish to let Anita and Dummett walk away at the end of their contracts both will be offered new deals
    both are worth keeping even in the prem very good squad players

  • 8 JP...from The Rock // Aug 28, 2016 at 12:18 PM

    I think the only deadwood left is Riviere, Sissoko, Tiote, Ameobi and Vuckic. Am I missing someone?? Rafa has done remarkably well to get rid of most of them and replace them with good players eager to fight for the cause. No more bargain bin signings thank God. That is truly in the past and now we can look forward to these type of signings that are fighters with good attitudes and determination to improve themselves and the team. Long may it continue.

    Reports that galatasaray have agreed a fee with us for Tiote. Need to get Reece Oxford in on loan ASAP to replace him

    Lazaar has had his Breakfast in a local cafe – the owner tweeted that he was there.

    better performance yesterday,more fluidity,seemed easier less of a hard ship to get forward,seems the confidence is growing,2 great goals and solid performances all over the park….hayden looks a quality signing good,passing quick mind,a solid in the tackle…really impressed by him yesterday so he gets my man of match….good thing is lots of people are picking lots of other players as there man of the match,so that shows,that there were a lot of great performances.

    Mr Funk- thanks mate hadn’t heard about that. Want him announced though as still it aint official. Ever since Remy fkd us I have been a bit wary until I see it on the club website.

  • 13 Mr Funk // Aug 28, 2016 at 12:24 PM

    @ Hibbit

    Even if you could get better players in than Dummett and Anita?

    @ JP

    Understand your concerns – hopefully he will be announced soon especially when Murphy’s deal was done in 24 hours.
