Newcastle LIne Up Two Potential Loan Signings – Two Excellent Players


There have been some rumors for some time that Newcastle have been interested in Manchester United’s left-back Luke Shaw.

And when Rafa meets with Lee Charnley today to discuss transfers and how much money he will get next month – his name could be the first on the agenda.

While we are now falling into the relegation zone if we continue to lose, Luke Shaw could be interested in joining Newcastle on loan with an option to buy in the summer.

That’s because with Amanda Staveley likely to be the new owner at Newcastle next month it will be a new era starting with Rafa Benitez as manager of the side.

Michy Batshuayi – can we sign him on loan?

Rafa will now actually get some help from the owner – rather than the owner simply being a hindrance to progress.

So we are hoping Rafa can persuade Luke to sign on initially on loan next month.

It’s also likely that Newcastle without Ashley in charge will not be put off by the loan fees.

We want to stay in the Premier League where we will get around £125M every season, so we expect Amanda Staveley to look at the big picture.

The other player we are hoping can be persuaded to join Newcastle on loan is Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea.

Michy was a target of ours before he eventually signed on for the Blues last year, but he has struggled for game time.

He will want to make the French squad for the World Cup next summer in Russia, and he will get games at Newcastle.

There could be a complication with that loan deal with the news the Blues may want to use him in a part-exchange deal to get Monaco’s 22-year-old midfielder, Thomas Lemar.

Michy has proved that when he gets games, he can score goals in the Premier League.

If we cannot get Batshuayi, then Newcastle will go after Liverpool striker Danny Ings – who was a target of Newcastle’s before he signed on at Liverpool two years ago.

But Danny is more of a risk because he hasn’t played in the Premier League for some time now, given the injuries he has had since he signed on for Liverpool

Rafa may want to bring up to five players into the squad this January, and he could also sell players like Aleksandar Mitrovic, Jack Colback, and Chancel Mbemba if he has replacements lined up.

    The £30 million being spoken about doesn’t look like much if we want five players in the January window.

    i am wondering if the plunge in value of SD with several branches closing will affect things in our favour or not of a sale.

    Other than the advertising

    Ashley keeps NUFC and SD
    well apart
    That’s why he created Mash Holdings

    So a fluctuation in SD’s fortunes
    should have nowt to do with this deal

    SD shares currently are about the £4 mark
    When Ashley funded the Jan 2013
    splurge on players , SD shares were
    trading under £2, their lowest for
    months .

    Well if anybody said we would be 16th in dec after window closed i would have taken that. When Rafa bought lejuane and murphy he thought they was definately more to come. Fat man left him high and dry he bought well for the championship. He knew a lot of them were not good enough for premier then . We spent more in championship. Rafa has made mistakes but no one out there in long term. My perspective is most true fans know the score. Dyche relegatef burnley where are they now keep the faith and the likes of jimiley do one

    so it’s all right to call someone a racist bigot red neck, for liking someone? without knowing who they are.
    and if these people are doing this just because that’s there opinion of that person, Then by that same definition i’m also entitled to do the same.
    Bigot definition, a person who is intolerant towards those holding different opinions.
    oh the irony of it

    Given the current league position I would imagine that it would be difficult to entice players to move to Newcastle permanently and therefore loan moves maybe the best and possibly the only move.

    I always liked Shaw. His strength was going forward. However, he seems to be carrying some baggage.

    As the takeover looks like it will only complete after the transfer window closes it will be interesting to see which players can be enticed to come to us.

    On playing the ref- that Tom Davies, near the end – disgraceful cheating and play acting. Same Rooney and co when getting subbed – surely should be booked when messing around like that? The ref was very poor, but surely Shelvey must have known he was treading a very fine line?
    And Ashley Williams struggled with Mitro in the world cup qualifiers, so seemed obvious to play him, last night – especially because their other centre half and the right backwere both very young and looked nervous.

    I said this last nyt but diame looked like he’d never seen a football before in his life….like an actor playing a footballer in a film, just didn’t look right,darlow another blunder…we were unlucky with ritchie and merino rattling the post but i thought we looked toothless second half especially…shelvey was making me very nervous when on the ball and everton closing him down,as he always looks like he’ll lose it….all in all, confidence is shot so there’s no pace to our passing and a defensively we look like our arses go everytime the opposition step over half way…. worrying times…but we have dig deep and battle…..by the way the shelvey red…bloody brainless for me…the games gone,stay on ya feet so your available for the next games….just dense.

    As always I wait for the hysteria to die down. I thought we played quite well in the first half but very poor in the second half. They had some luck with their goal and we had no luck hitting the woodwork twice but that’s what seems to happen when you are at the bottom of the league! Everton were very poor and they must be thanking their lucky stars they came away with 3 points – I wasn’t worried before but now I am!

    Catchy- I have pulled Lesh and Ancient/Jeremy a few times.
    I was always a Labour man, family Labour, through and through, but went to UKIP and am a full-on Brexiteer. My views on that are due to personal experiences in several jobs, as well as personal experience of meeting/dealing with some Eastern Europeans. Whilst I clearly hold opposing views to Jeremy/Lesh and co, I have always found them reasonably respectful. Lesh is clearly right on, cannot find any middle ground and bangs on too much. I have regularly told them to stop the political nonsense, on here.
    No doubt, your rants have been brought on by posters such as them – but you are/were taking it way too far – calling someone a nonce is just pathetic.

    If u think the hysteria was bad last nyt…wait till sat…we could get embarrassingly whooped at arsenal,so expect a melt down…for me i just dont look at the arsenal games as a throw away game,if we get something great but dont worry about the result…everton and some of the other games we’ve lost at home especially, are the games that boil my piss,there the points we should of picked up…them are the games we need to be ryt up for but we aren’t.

    I’ve said many times, shelvey has only one way of playing. Cannot dictate a game or control the pace of a game. As others have mentioned, he does slow the game for us unless he is trying these long passes which look good when they come off but aren’t very effective for us as a team.

    That second yellow yesterday was frustrating as he didn’t need to make it. Player was breaking but we had another player there too. Too many times does he do this and isn’t criticised any where near as much as a certain other player. The big thing to add is this player is supposed to be our stand in captain!

    People saying shelvey is to slow for the prem there was absolutley no movement in front of him how the hell is he getting the blame for slowing our game down when there is no movement in front of him
    He is literally the only player that does look for a decisive pass
    Its gone mad manquillo getting plaudits for doing nowt and shelvey is a championship player its ridiculous

    I’m amazed how quickly people want to get rid of Shelvey after he has the odd bad game. He’s one of the only players in our squad with any genuine quality. It was always going to be hard against a Fat Sam team once they got the first goal.

    Shelvey was making me nervous when he was on the ball and the his red was daft but last nyt wasn’t all him,maybe the fact he’d been dropped for a few games then when he’s brought in to start we lose got at him a bit but we were pretty bloody toothless all over the pitch, the team lost,the team need to take on the chin and buck there ideas up….maybe another lascelles rant is needed…light a fire under there arses!.

    I’m sorry, I’ve often said there is no need for politics on the blog but come on. Trump tell the truth? Guy said he will cut ties with Saudi Arabia yet they have continued support and helped facilitate their bombing and blockade of Yemen. He said they will get out of Syria yet they’re still supporting these so called ‘rebels’ and they’re actually planning to stay in bases propped up on Syrian soil. There’s also many other times he’s said something on Twitter in the last yet has gone back on his word or ignored it. He may have carried out some of the things he has said but don’t act like he’s telling the truth lol.

    Benitez looks baffled and short of solutions though with Lascelles back we were more solid defensively. I do think we are struggling because Benitez has handled the takeover poorly. Him constantly saying “I got the players I needed not what I wanted” can’t help player confidence or team unity. We have the youngest squad in the Premiership and SBR would have recognised an arm around the player shoulder was a better option than the implied criticism of players in the media.

    Benitez’s record is now one win in 12 with consecutive, 4 home defeats. Despite the lack of quality signings in the window, we are better than this as we proved at the beginning of the season. We do need to show more determination helped by more positivity in team selection, formation and substitutions. Other sides down in the leagues bottom third are eeking out points against so called better teams. West Ham against Chelsea and WBA against Liverpool. We need to go to
    Arsenal and West Ham and play in a proactive positive way.

    Despite the doomsayers and Marxists/ Momentum posters on here there are positives. The takeover is happening and we are only 3 points away from 11th, but its high time we turned things around. It’s Arsenal up next, West Brom and West Ham have nicked points off so called big teams and we need to do the same.

    Fair enough, Ronaldo – like I said, I have absolutely no interest in US politics and hear more of it on here, than anywhere! 😆
    If it appears on the tv I change channels!
    When I said truth, I meant that he got elected telling people what he intended to do and appears to be trying to do exactly what he said he would do.

    Benitez seems to walk on water. He is beyond criticism it seems.
    He is supposed to be a top manager who gets players to overachieve. In reality they are underachieving. They are not as bad as Benitez is making them. They were 4th and winning games so whats changed??? The dressing room and crap team selection.If Benitez has lost the dressing room he needs new players in soon.

    Just keep seeing sly digs from certain posters, which end up causing such things as Catchy’s red necked rants! http://s1.dmcdn.net/ABW73/x240-w2y.jpg
    He is correct, in that Lesh and co (sounds like a dance troop) started it, but calling a blogger a nonce cannot be excused.

    Catchy, a bigot is generally defined as someone intolerant of differing views on race, religion or sexuality. Not someone who disagrees with your political or football views.

    To suggest, as you do, that people here who call you a bigot for spouting indefensible tripe about the orange buffoon, muslims, women etc, are somehow being hypocritical is not only ignorant, but displays a complete lack of self-awareness.

    Folk here don’t attack your posts because they are ‘bullying’ you, as you so often like to claim, they do so because your posts are so often obnoxious, belligerent and utterly lacking in logic and substance.

    Your MO, in fact, is exactly like your idol’s. Shout obnoxiously at everyone else, then claim victimhood and ‘fake news’. THAT’S why folk treat you like the blog idiot.

    Do yourself, and all of us, a favour and engage brain before you post. Let’s Make NUFCBlog Great Again.

    I also think Perez is a key player, in the hole behind Joselu or Mitro, although I accept Mitro is history now. Gayle can’t lead the line and we can’t play 442 because the midfield gets overrun. As much as I admire his goal scoring and running, I quietly seethe when he starts, because we are inevitably less than the sum of our parts. Perez is the opposite. He helps us tick. Joselu for all the stick he gets, helps us tick too. Clearly we need a big man up top who can score though, as well as hold the ball up, and lead the press.
