This Is Only Chance Of Signing Top Striker Today – £5M Can Save Over £100M – Save Our Season


Rafa Benitez talked to Mike Ashley yesterday and tried his best to tell the owner that if we don’t bring in some new players today – primarily a striker – then things could be very dodgy come May.

Mike Ashley might be trying to sell a Championship club by then, so it’s in the owner’s best interests to bring players in today – and spend some money.

And with Swansea getting another 3 points last night by beating Arsenal 3-1 at home, it looks like the Swans will be pulling away from the bottom three.

They are now 4th bottom and level on points with Newcastle.

Nicolai Jorgensen – pay £20M for him today

Since drawing 1-1 at Newcastle on 13th January, they have beaten Liverpool (1-0) and Arsenal – both at home.

It seems that Newcastle’s best chance of getting a striker in and save our season (SOS) is to go back to Feyenoord and pay the £20M the Dutch club want for striker Nicolai Jorgensen.

Jorgensen wants to come to Newcastle and Feyenoord are willing to get £20M for him so a quick deal could be done.

The Chronicle are also reporting that Rafa thinks £20M is the going rate for a striker like Jorgensen and he is also one of Rafa’s top transfer targets.

So there’s still some hope.

Pay £5M more than Newcastle want to pay for the Danish striker to help save £100M next season; that’s the minimum we will lose if relegated for the third time under Ashley.

The maths of the situation are very clear.

But to try to arrange a deal today from scratch is almost impossible, especially for a slow-moving club like Newcastle.

If we don’t bring a striker in today, this should be the last transfer window for Mike Ashley as the Newcastle owner.

He needs to sell up and leave Toon.

    As far as I can tell…. todays failed last gasp bids will be for Slimani and the czech keeper, Doobybrother or something. Cant see anything about going back in for this guy.

    Kennedy and the Czech keeper is a start. What about his mate the Czech striker. I thought Charnley was getting a two for one deal in true Ashley style.

    They’re reporting it therefore it’s fake news.

    Probably taking a half inch off the bathroom door.

    Dúbravka is Slovakian GK, he is very good gk, but we will see how He will adapt in the premier league, then Slimani or Jorgensen is must, if we realize these two today, we will be in better position than before the window, but we will see. We should sign these two 3 weeks ago for the same price as now, but He will never learn how to do football

    If we do get any players in today I doubt it’ll give anyone a lift, a bit of relief maybe but that’s it, this regime’s transfer methods are ridiculous.

    Laughing at the situation is all we have left, it’s too draining being angry all the time.

    Mitro won’t start tonight then as Rafa not going to use anyone who has had head turned in window until fully closed.

    Slimani I have been saying for weeks but now we look to be in a bidding war with other prem clubs. Pretty obvious how that will end then!

    Rehash of previous comment but no way is Dubravka on a plane. Ashley wants to save the airfare and in his usual style has commented ” the Czechs in the post”
    Just hope it arrives before 11pm tonight

    Is Jib back from holiday yet to take up his post on airport watch ?

    Be prepared for a defeat tonight, I don’t expect us to win we’re to nervous at home and usually play rubbish, and who’s going to score our goals?
    I’ll also be surprised if we sign anyone today either.
    Relegation looms. All very depressing but it’s how it is.

    Too little too late as far as the Jorgensen deal is concerned. I doubt the club would sell now that it’s too late to get a replacement and as far as Slimani is concerned, I would love it but now that Ryder and Caulkin have told everyone expect the price to be too much or another club to nip in and gazump us.

    According to Mick Quinn on Talkspirt, he reckons somebody at the club’s leaking news of enquiries worrying other clubs so they nip in. It’s a novel way of not being able to get players over the line. He reckons somebody’s sabotaging any moves.

    And, the Chronic’s article on Rafs’s call to Ashley included some interesting language attributed to Rada. He’s used words along the lines of ‘that’s the way they work’ (referring to Ashety, Charley et al). They? THEY? Doesn’t that speak volumes about relationship in the club? Two camps, Rafa and Ashley’s crew? And Ashley’s allowing that to happen?

    Sing
    I agree with your sentiments and the level of negativity by many on here is not justified in my opinion. We have a squad already good enough to stay up if we can only assume a positive approach.
    The crowd have a part to play. In recent Home games we’ve not been 100% behind the team . The anti Ashley chanting can only work against us.
    More of the toon army on the road and support for the team at SJP please. If we can win our next two games things could look a whole lot better. It’s disappointing how so many so called fans are taking such a negative stance on here. Let’s be positive on and off the field. But I would want to see a team playing to win rather than simply not to lose. We need the 3 points.

    “My priority is to concentrate on football. If we bring more players in, we’ll be stronger, but if we can’t do that I have to be sure that we go into every game still believing we can win.”

    It’s imperative that the fans get and stay behind Rafa and the lads before and during the match tonight. Unrest’ll surely help us on the way down.

    Same old Same old SHIT ! It’ll be a day of well we tried to get mr blobby and the munchkins from the wizard of oz for £3.50 but they wouldn’t dig them up. So you’ll just have to soldier on Rafa. Of course that will come from Penfold as GREEDY COCK-ney Fatman will be back at home counting his pennies and ripping more of his workers off at his warehouse AGAIN.
