Newcastle Loan Deal For England Goalkeeper Unlikely To Happen

There is news today in the Mirror that Newcastle United may be interested in bringing Joe Hart to Newcastle on a loan spell this month.

Rafa wants another goalkeeper in this month, and that will allow him to send the very promising Freddie Woodman out on loan to get some valuable first-team experience.

Hart has not been too impressive over the last two years and was average in his loan spell last season at Torino, and he has lost his first team place at West Ham to Spanish goalkeeper Adrian – who was a target of ours last summer.

Joe Hart – unlikely to come to Newcastle

The 30-year-old England goalkeeper is on a season-long loan deal at West Ham and is desperate for first-team games so he can make the England squad for the World Cup in Russia this summer.

But it could be complicated to get this done because if they could work out an agreement with Newcastle for the loan deal for Hart, it would mean that West Ham would have to bring in another goalkeeper.

Why would they want to do that just to help out Newcastle?

And Joe will play in the FA Cup today at Shrewsbury, his hometown club where he began his career, and David Moyes has promised him first-team football at West Ham this season.

Karl Darlow is currently the number one goalkeeper at Newcastle after Rob Elliot was injured and it seems Rob will be out another two weeks with his thigh injury.

    Good, he’s a shadow of his best and if he can’t even get first team football at West Ham I’m not convinced he’d be much of an upgrade here

    Thank goodness that he’s unlikely to be signed on loan.
    He’s more like Calamity Jane.
    Anyway there’s other keepers out there who are Head and Shoulders better for us.

    Slimani playing against Fleetwood for Leicester on BBC at moment.
    Nothing much to shout about, but probably an upgrade on Joselu.

    Hart is an absolute shower of shite. Hes on a rapid decline and isn’t half the keeper he once was. This is a non starter!

    West Ham are already paying Hart over £100,000 a week with Man City picking up the rest. No worries there.

    basically pep got rid as hart can’t sweep / keep and has been poor for at least 18 months now. the sulphates in head and shoulders aren’t doing him any favours either.

    whilst pep is the top banana and potch the young apprentice let’s not write rafa off as a has been just yet. he may still surprise you.

    its not hounding him out, i said ages ago, he has the pedigree, i just dont like his style of management, I dont think he get the best out his players he has available, i dont expect him to love every player we have, but he is cutting his nose of to spite his face. and you all kind of agree with it, which is fine, its your prerogative to do so. but you dont have any right to ask why we dont win games when you back his stance on refusing to use other options.

    people say why not just back the club, show support to the players, but who decides who we should support? 7 players that he is freezing out is a huge number, so do we just now support Rafa. ?

    it for me is an honest question

    Interesting timing for a charter helicopter to travel from North Yorkshire to Newcastle Heliport. Could be anyone but I guess there is a chance that Amanda is popping up for the match. #nufc takeover— Tony (@ToeKneesTweets) January 6, 2018

    I have said many times before, i think Rafas big problem is his coaching team. i think they are out dated,, Rafa is the brains behind the formations, but he doesn’t take the coaching sessions, he pops out to them like most of the other top coaches,

    most top managers change their coaching team to keep it fresh, Rafas appears to be the same as it always has been

    Only re-posting this as a reminder to myself.

    Outguessing Rafa today is going to be a toughie.


    Sterry Lascelles Clarke Haidara

    Saivet Shelvey

    Aarons Perez Atzu


    probably be as close as anyone.

    Oh and 3-1 to us.

    Wonder who Rob Lee will be shouting for?

    I don’t think rafa is finished, not by a long way but I also believe his very best days are behind him.

    Rafa will be the one to lead us to a trophy with the right backing, his career has pointed to cups as his route to success so I can defo see that happening here. If it’s a big money backer then we can do better than rafa

    The helicopter belongs to Hibbit!

    Yesterday proved to be a non-contentious and pleasant day on the blog. Too much to expect today – Catchy (who me, want to hound Rafa out?) pops in and the arguments start.

    Catchy, try being positive eh?
