Midfielder Leaves Newcastle On Loan – Rafa Gets Wages Off The Wage Bill


Jack Colback has agreed to a season-long loan back at Nottingham Forest so the Newcastle lad will see out the last year of his five year contract at Forest.

There is an option to buy the player, but he will be a free agent next June, so the only reason we would see Forest paying out money is if they think Jack will be in demand next summer.

Rafa still needs to get a number of the fringe players at Newcastle either sold or out on loan so Newcastle can reduce their wage bill which is too high at the moment.

Jack joined us from Sunderland as a free agent back in 2014, and it looks like he will become a free agent again.

Jack Colback – season loan to Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest are targeting promotion from the Championship, and Jack is looking forward to that challenge.

This is what Colback has said:

“I’m delighted to be back.”  “To get promotion is one of the reasons I came back.”

“Also the support of the manager during the off-season. He expressed his feelings about wanting to get me back.”

“Obviously when I was here first time around, I enjoyed my time here.”

“A great set of lads and the manager has shown a real ambition to get this club in the Premier League and that is something I want to be part of.”

“I think the level of the signings that he’s made highlights the ambition.”

“I think there’s a real buzz around the club at the moment and I’m just looking forward to getting into it.”

Colback played 102 games for Newcastle with 5 goals and 10 assists.

But he blotted his copybook last summer when he was sent to train with the U23 squad and refused Rafa’s request to join the first team squad one day when Rafa was short of payers.

That was a mistake by the Killingworth lad.

But we wish Jack the very best for his future career, and it would be great if Forest can get promoted this season.

After all, Nottingham Forest won the European Cup twice in succession back in 1979 and 1980 with Brian Clough as the manager assisted by Peter Taylor.

    Another one (admittedly squad player at best) out with no sign of a replacement…..

    Peeps looking forward to the departure of Mbemba and Mitro should be worried about the level of players we are in for and if the replacements will be any better than those sold. Nando and an aging Mexican defender don’t exactly float my boat!

    in 2015/16 season are wages were 74mill and that apparently included what it cost to sack mclaren and his staff
    how is our wages now 112 mill
    when u look at the players we have gotten rid off and bought i would think our wages would be around the same maybe 80mill at worse

    I’m cautiously supportive of this group in principle. I instinctively distrust militancy but recognise the need for action from the fans and for that to be coordinated somehow.It remains to be seen what their intentions truly are and how they intend to organise themselves. Once this is clear I’ll make my mind up whether to fully get behind them or not. At this point we don’t even know who they are

    I’m gonna teach Mike Ashley a lesson.
    On the first Tuesday of every month I am going to order a pair of 70% off jogging bottoms from Sports Direct.
    Then as I am entitled to do with a mail order or internet purchase I’m gona send them back again.
    I was going to excercise my democratic right to picket outside one of his shops.
    However, this will take up less time.

    The ledge this is why I’m cautiously supportive.the problem is that militancy is easy to hijack and distort. The leaders start with the right intentions but are replaced quickly by far more radical individuals who take the movement in a different direction. I’m up for blockading his shops but not for any kind of protests on match days which should be all about the team. I’ll see how it develops before i commit.

    The £112m wage bill’s a false figure that includes that controversial provision for onerous contracts and £10m promotion bonuses in the 16/17 accounts.

    Have a look at this TF analysis of the numbers – it shows that Ashley’s trying again to con the fans and the media.

    http://www.true-faith.co.uk/true-faith-newcastle-united-accounts-2016-17-part-1/

    Jib’ll no doubt ridicule the analysis but that’s just him being his usual narcissistic self.

    I don’t see getting rid of Ashley as a priority
    Curtailing his power is the way to go.
    Id love it if NUFC operated like RM or Barca
    owned by the fans.
    There’s a lot of similarities between Cataluña
    and Geordieland.
    Ownership by everyone is the way to go
    Ashley could still be an investor but not
    in the majority
    Issue 700,000,000 £1 shares sell 351,000,000
    to the public and give Ashley 349,000,000

    Seroius comment. Back in the day working class folks came together to support each other as no bugger else was ever going to.
    The trade union movement, the co-op, building societies, mutual insurance companies.

    That’s all forgotten. Business and the bottom line drive everything.
    What about solidarity.
    If he is exploiting one and all how come the British public can’t agree on some sort of consensus.
    Stop using his shops.

    The last time the British public came together and kicked ass were the fuel protesters of the early naughties.
    Unless you count the EU vote when they stuck two fingers up to main stream politicians who have never put them first.

    Jib I’m beginning to belatedly realise that seeing your name on the blog and annoying people is more important to you than clarifying your opinion on Ashley once and for all. I’m not interested in one guy shouting ‘Ashley is useless’ louder than the other any more than you are. But tacitly supporting Ashley and taking the mickey out of the ‘if Rafa goes’ group is making little sense to me. I value your input on this blog but I am beginning to think that you are more interested in mickey taking than logic and cogent arguments re ownership management and budgets.

    Posada telling the EU to sod off was gullible and led by buffoons who are now off the playing pitch. All the hard rhetoric has fallen away and if another vote happened it wouldn’t go through. Anyway sorry for the politics nonsense. More importantly, I hope nufc fans protest, abstain and do whatever they can to change Ashley’s running of the club
