Three Players Make Their Return To Newcastle For Preseason


On Thursday, the club sent out confirmation on why four players were absent in the return to preseason training.

This is what the club said on Thursday:

While those who have been on international duty – including Miguel Almíron, Fabian Schär, Martin Dúbravka and Christian Atsu – remain on an extended break, the rest of the squad are back in Benton to begin preparations for the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

It is interesting that they did not mention Henri Saivet as the is still on international duty at the African Cup of Nations tournament with Senegal.

They did however send out a tweet about Henri this morning.

They also did not mention goalkeeper Freddie Woodman in the initial statement but it appears that he along with Dubravka and Schar are back this morning.

    Martin Dúbravka has been stopping the takeover and the transfers. Guy is a beast! Glad he’s back training now and keeping his gloves busy.

    Why wasn’t the statement released on a bit of BZG paper with Midhat’s signature on, then it would be official, the fact that muppet Redding had to do it over three tweets due to the length is frankly embarrassing.

    Whether or not the content is good or bad, the professionalism is bad beyond belief (and that’s Redding’s fault).

    Cack handed isn’t the word.

    Micky, Peter Redding’s latest tweet says it’s a statement from the CEO of the Bin Zayed Group – that’s not Midhat….

    I assume the Shiekh wouldn’t get his hands dirty being interviewed about business matters and would not sully himself with social media.

    Micky, Im almost thinking that what theyve done could be the best way of doing it. It’s not an official takeover statement, it’s apparently aimed at the fans to give us an update. Theyve said they like us and are impressed with the support. Maybe because of the uproar thats going on they are just letting us know its still on.
    And what better way of doing it than just passing info to a local radio guy who is a Geordie and will let us all know?
    Just my opinion.

    Pathological lying (also called pseudologia fantastica and mythomania) is a behaviour of habitual or compulsive lying.
    There’s no cure for it!

    I dont know why people get so depressed and upset about negative news that doesnt exist. Surely everybody can see these people have bid and both parties have agreed everything after months of work and that it is looking very close now?

    Why believe social media stuff about bids not being received or BZG have no money etc. I mean its all ludicrous.

    Stardust, fair comment, as I said it’s making Redding look like a muppet more than BZG.

    It could only ever happen with us.

    Update from Mikey,

    Jose is in China and sweating (it’s 38F) on Mikey confirming his contract.

    Pardew has accepted the 10 year deal but is still making his mind up between Jose and Fat Sam as assistant.

    And Mikey says people call HIM for holding up deals.

    Haway man Pards, get a fkn move on.

    It’s like an episode of Father Ted where Ted and Dougal try to buy a football club and Missus Doyle provides updates on twitter. You couldn’t make it up.
