Here’s What’s On The Minds Of Newcastle Fans This Saturday Morning


We are being linked with a return of Andros Townsend today and there are reports that we are still interested in speedy winger Adama Traore.

We are also supposed to be trying to get a deal done for Benfica playmaker Andreas Samaris but we are short of around £3M of the Portuguese club’s asking price – so we are not too far aways – we have offered around £14M and they want £17.4M.

Benfica playmaker Andreas Samaris – Newcastle trying to sign him

Fans are still (rightly) asking for a little bit of patience in this very difficult transfer market – but that’s always difficult at Newcastle.

🙂

Here are some interesting tweets this morning from Geordie fans.

And it looks like Karl Darlow could be in his way ….

    Think girlfriend analogy: The only way to get over hba is a new hba 😉 we haven’t had that.

    I really like Townsend, but I think I prefer that Traore. The potential is amazing. A new… Hba.

    Not quite sure how I got on Jack’s list but thanks anyway. I’ve decided recently to come on here and discuss all things football & NUFC and that’s it. We don’t know each other and this constant sniping and arguing is pointless.

    Jack’s list of “preferred bloggers” is typically revealing.

    United want Real Madrid goalkeeper?

    As we reported last week Rafa Benitez is using his Real Madrid contacts for possible signings and one he wants is goalkeeper Kiko Casilla. Now Spanish paper Marca reports Benitez has asked about him. (Chronic)

    Yes, Jail.

    .

    I’m really hoping that we’re not getting rid of Darlow simply because we are so short of funds that we’re not left with other options if we want to strengthen the team elsewhere.
    He is nowhere near the finished article as yet, but he put in some great performances for us last season.
    If we need to sell a goalie, surely Krul should be the one to go.
    Much as I admire Rafa and what he is doing for the club, has he, maybe, a bit of a blind spot with regards to goalkeepers ?

    I doubt the club would raise any worthwhile funds from selling Krul instead of Darlow. Krul has practically done nothing over the course of the last 2 years, has 1 year left on his deal on wages above his current form, and constitutes an injury risk in future.

    Considering how little Krul is worth, and his potential should he regain his form & fitness, it would seem to make more sense to give him one last opportunity.

    Actually, make that 3 seasons for Krul. Double checked and he has played 12 games in 3 seasons.

    Can’t believe there’s no archive of the old blog. All Ian’s incarnations will be clapping their hands at the he prospect of a fresh start and a clean slate.

    I don’t think we should be after a goalkeeper at all like. I think we’re fine as we are. I agree with mag52 it would Krul out the door for me if anyone.

    So I take it you don’t agree with my comment on wolves!! You know wolves who have been in second tier football for about 10 seasons and yet somehow seem to be able to spend quite easily against our recent history of 8 out of the last 10 years in the prem and seem to be haggling over a poultry couple of hundred grand in the Lujeaine transfer for about 6 weeks

    Surely you must have been thinking we would have been above and past that by now ?? I know I did

    Surely they can’t be complying with financial fair play with signings like that ?

    I think you maybe get punished the following season though, So they’re probably just banking on not being in the championship next season.

    Benitez must be extremely patient – according to Jib, Benitez was supposed to have £100 million to spend this summer. Oldgit1 strangely enough came to the same conclusion, whilst typing in the same cut-off/short sentences that I thought was unique to Jib.

    Listening to Question Time and the Tories’ new mantra is the debt and mess inherited from Labour. Strong and stable’s out the window now. Same scheidt different day.

    Sounds like NUFC and I wonder when we’ll be hearing ‘we couldn’t get him over the line’
