Newcastle Could Soon Have A Big Star On Their Hands

Sunday, June 28th, 2015 · 17 Comments

Rolando Aarons had a great pre-season for Newcastle last summer and looked like a budding star, but then he picked up a hamstring injury in September and that hampered his season and he played only 6 times for Newcastle last season.

However, he appeared just once since he played on November 1st in the home game against Liverpool – which we won 1-0.

It shows that Rolando has a really good attitude in that he has been training all summer with local Bristol youth side Hallen FC, where he is working with strength and conditioning specialists Back 2 Action.

So What Are Newcastle Doing In The Transfer Window?

Sunday, June 28th, 2015 · 92 Comments

It could be that Lee Charnley and company are working hard behind the scenes and looking to sign some top players for Newcastle, but while other clubs are starting to make their signings, there’s nothing from Newcastle – absolutely nothing – and Steve McClaren hasn’t even announced one coach who will be part of his coaching team this season.

Newcastle After English International Winger

The Star is reporting today that Newcastle are interested in West Ham’s Stewart Downing,  who turns 31 next month, and it’s hard to believe that the former Middlesbrough, Aston Villa and Liverpool player would be a target of Newcastle’s this summer.

Approach Made For Top Newcastle Player

Saturday, June 27th, 2015 · 115 Comments

The Mirror are reporting that Turkish club Besiktas are now supposed to be favorites to sign the Newcastle striker, and they are reporting an approach has been made for the Senegal International.

But the Tyneside club would be taking a chance if they let Papiss go before bringing in at least one suitable replacement.

Cisse is supposed to be the replacement for Demba Ba at Besiktas – who it seems will not be joining West Brom as there is news he will join Super League club Shanghai Shenhua in China – according to their web-site.

This Player Can Still Come Good For Newcastle

Saturday, June 27th, 2015 · 9 Comments

Emmanuel Riviere did not have a good first season in the Premier League for Newcastle United,  and in 28 appearances he scored only three goals and only one in the Premier League,  and that was in the second last game of the season at QPR that put us 1-0 up at half time – but we collapsed in the second half and lost 2-1.

Newcastle Still Need To Convince Both Fans And Players

Saturday, June 27th, 2015 · 88 Comments

Newcastle signed Steve McClaren as the new head coach on Wednesday, 10th June, which is 17 days ago,  and since that time Newcastle have not signed anybody else – in fact not much has happened at Newcastle at all other than us being linked with two or three players every day.

It’s been kind of boring – and Steve still has to announce his coaching team.

Since pre-season starts on Wednesday, he needs to do that fairly soon – maybe over the weekend.
