Geordie Fans Hear The Drums – Want Fernando At Newcastle


With Newcastle reported to be interested in at least four holding players over the last week alone, we put out a poll yesterday asking the Newcastle fans which midfielder they would prefer – given the reported fees put on their heads.

And Manchester City’s Fernando has come out well on top and if we can really get this lad in for just £5M – City wanted £10M for him a few weeks ago – it would be one terrific buy for Newcastle.

Fernando is a classy player with great technique who has experience at the highest levels after playing for six years at Porto where he played 228 goals with 5 goals before joining Manchester City for £12M three years ago.

Rafa wants to bring in one holding midfielder who can challenge the young and talented Isaac Hayden for the starting position next season in the Premier League.

Which Defensive Midfielder Do You Think Newcastle Should Sign?

If Fernando comes in we just need some new words to one of Abba’s many great songs of the 1970s.

    I think we have more money than most think! Personally I think Benitez will have 60-80 million, remember how good Rafa is financially, it’s about being astute and not telling the world we have X amount to spend or all players prices will become inflated. If we had nothing to spend Rafa would not of stayed that’s for sure.

    It’s not only us have one signing in its 80% of prem sides. In Rafa we trust!!!!!

    Newcastle are eyeing a move for Fenerbahce defender Martin Skrtel, according to a report.
    Turkish publication FotoMac claim that the Magpies are considering a swoop for the 32-year-old this summer.

    Add another one lads to the ever growing list

    Most contracts end 30 June and Rafa said he wants most players in by the time the squad reconvenes on 3 July. So I think we’re in for a busy week next week! With regards Fernandho, I think he’d be an awesome signing. I hope he’s for real.

    Perhaps Rafa has not signed any of the holding midfielders on this list because he is waiting on decisions from others he rates higher, such as William Carvalho, Maxime Gonalons, and so on. I am sure he has a number of alternate choices at various positions but is waiting for his first choice players to make a move before he decides.

    That would be my first choice as well! 🙂

    I am glad we do not have a manager who is panicked about making a signing and who then settles for a lesser option!

    Over here in Ibiza now. We’re definitely enjoying ourselves. Cyril has already terrorized the neighbours. Ibizatoon is trying to be a good sport about it. I’ve given him my 1945 We’re in deep sh*te now Adolf Hitler Bunker Thong for having us over. Adolf wore it at his last pool party. Very valuable.

    Let’s get those signings in Rafa! These are important days. Other clubs are starting to make some decent signings. We can only go so far with Phil Gristle. Let’s get some big ones in!!!

    Nobody really understands the mind of Rafa. It’s deep. It’s huge. Huge range of thinkings going on.

    After a hot day at the beach I’m singing and playing guitar for Ibizatoon. His screaming and moaning hardly bothers me now……
