September 7th, 2013 · 19 Comments

With the new news today that the reason Newcastle didn’t bring Bafe Gomis to Newcastle was that once again we refused to meet the fee asked by his club Lyon, it’s almost certain Newcastle will be after Gomis again in January, when his transfer fee will have gone down, because his contract at that time will […]

There are reports in France that Newcastle never really entered into fresh negotiations with Lyon for Bafe Gomis before the transfer window closed, and Joe Kinnear had already ended his pursuit of Gomis last Saturday night, and the news is that Newcastle never  meet Lyon’s asking price, even though there were wide reports that Newcastle […]

These Are The Players Newcastle Should Have Signed This Summer

September 6th, 2013 · 64 Comments

The vast majority of fans were disappointed that Newcastle didn’t get one senior player into the club over the summer on a permanent basis, and all we could manage was Loic Remy on a season long loan deal, and that just wasn’t good enough. Joe Kinnear – brought in only one loan signing

Could This Be Why Newcastle Didn’t Go After Tom Ince?

September 6th, 2013 · 152 Comments

We have an idea why Newcastle didn’t pursue 21 year-old Tom Ince of Blackpool too much in the summer, and that’s because we already have Sammy Ameobi at the club,  and Sammy is probably at the same level as Tom, although he hasn’t played as many first team games as the son of former Manchester […]

September 4th, 2013 · 52 Comments

Joe Kinnear has received severe criticism ever since he arrived back at the club as the new Director of Football in mid-June, and essentially he replaced Derek LLambias, who rather quickly resigned, and Joe has responsibility for bringing in players at all levels of the club, but the consensus on how Joe has done this summer is hardly good […]
