Newcastle Getting Help To Sign Charlie Austin

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015 · 218 Comments

Ever since Harry Redknapp accepted the manager job at Newcastle in January of 2008 to replace the fired Sam Allardyce,  and then changed his mind the next day – Harry has always said good things about Newcastle United.

There was news late last night in the Express that Newcastle were again favorites to sign Charlie Austin from QPR, and Harry was QPR manager most of last season managing Austin, until he resigned in early February of this year.

McClaren May Bid For Derby County Captain

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015 · 33 Comments

The Guardian is reporting that Steve McClaren is thinking about bidding for Ireland International center-back Richard Keogh, who played for him at Derby County for the last couple of years and was the Derby captain.

Richard stands 6’2″ tall and has been at a number of lower league clubs including Carlisle United until 2010, but the Newcastle head coach still thinks he could do a job for him on Tyneside.

Florian Thauvin Unaffected By Newcastle Bid

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015 · 75 Comments

Newcastle are said to have had a €15M bid (about £10.7M) for Marseilles winger Florian Thauvin turned down by his club yesterday.

The bid is exactly what Marseilles paid for Thauvin two years ago, when they bought him from Lille in a controversial signing because Florian had only signed for Lille the previous January.

Florian never played one game at Lille because he played the rest of that season on loan to former club Bastia.
