Newcastle’s Likely Squad – Who Else Do We Need?

Friday, June 8th, 2007 · 64 Comments

For this article we are going to assume that we have Joey Barton, Mark Viduka, David Rosehnal, Leighton Baines, Derek Boateng and Tal Ben Haim at the club.
Barton and Viduka have arrived and we are fairly confident we can get the remaining four players in – some imminently.
We will now look at the squad we have and ask the question – who else to we need?

Friday, June 8th, 2007 · 11 Comments

Here are the major news stories associated with the Newcastle club for today – in no particular order of priority.
There’s some news about Big Sam being after Wes Brown yet the Journal says that’s not true – maybe for a change this is one player Big Sam is not after – we’ll have to wait and see – as always.

Friday, June 8th, 2007 · 4 Comments

When Sam Allardyce arrived at Newcastle we were in the final stages of negotiating a place in the Amsterdam tournament to compete with Ajax, Lazio and Athletico Madrid – but at the last moment Arsenal were chosen as the fourth team – which did not please Big Sam.
Sam has again talked at length to Luke Edwards of the Journal on this, the training ground and pre-season preparation and we’ll take a look – as always – at the interesting things Sam had to say.

Friday, June 8th, 2007 · 16 Comments

There are reports circulating again that Newcastle may be after Freddie Ljungberg the Arsenal mid-field player. No way to know right now if there is truth to this but Freddie would be a good addition to the squad and provide some experience as an attacking midfielder at Newcastle.

Mark Viduka beat Joey Barton to it this afternoon and after passing his medical at St. James’ Park he signed on the dotted line for Newcastle.
The paper work is keeping Barton from being a Newcastle player but we also expect David Rosehnal and Ben Tal Haim to become Newcastle players within the next few days.

Thursday, June 7th, 2007 · 10 Comments

Sam Allardyce has talked at length about his first acquisition at Newcastle – Joey Barton. While Joey is a good player his past antics have put a big question mark over this signing.
