These Are The Things On Minds Of Newcastle Fans This Sunday Morning



It’s a Sunday so usually we are linked with some top players like Lionel Messi, but we cannot see too many new links in the transfer window for Newcastle.

Currently, fans are waiting for the deal with Jacob Murphy of Norwich to be finalized, as the first team squad will jet off to Dublin for a week’s training camp next in the same location as last summer.

That first half of the game at Tynecastle on Friday night was really good to watch and we looked a fairly good side so very early in the preseason.

Here are some of the things Newcastle fans are talking about on Twitter this morning.

    Thank you for putting me straight about Elliot he’s better than Darlow so we should sell them both then right. Ba,Cabaye and Ben Arfa are better than we currently have on our books is it not about improving the squad?

    Zero excitement about signing Jacob’s. Hardly proven at championship level never mind prem. If this is a s good as it gets we are in for a long season.
    Can’t understand why we don’t try pick up some of the city and arsenal players.

    Elliott is certainly not better than Darlow but wont be sold because hes happy with his lot and wont complain about just being in the squad, always has been but if hes our starting keeper next season we need Juve levels of defense to cover his frailties

    Do u really think NUFC/Rafa is even considering bring in any of Ba, Ben Arfa or Cabaye?

    Of course I don’t think for one second Rafa would bring any of them back thats what I would like, we are obviously in the market for cheap players hence saying i’d take these back.

    Darlow has a lot more mistakes in him then Elliot does if last season is to go by.

    It’s as much or more about depth, balance, attitude, morale, work rate, team work, preparation, self belief, desire, determination, fitness etc, as it is about individual talent, stars or big transfer fees. We won’t know much about what we’ve got until 10 to 15 games in, but of course we all get excited by a good signing, and we do a need a few more quality additions.

    Darlow made 34 appearances whereas Elliot made 3 so aye going by last season itd be amazing if Darlow hadnt made more mistakes than Elliot, theres a reason why Elliot who was essentially fit from Oct/Nov but couldnt get Darlow out of the number 1 spot

    Krul was a better keeper than both so if he gets back to what he was then great but no for me if Elliot is our keeper next season we are leaking goals…and I assume thats the clubs stance as well if we are after keepers

    I’m hoping this bargain hunting is part of a long term plan that Rafa discussed with Ashley. In Rafa I trust but I can’t deny that reading that Martin Hardy article and Rafa’s “hopefully we’ll bring in some players” after the Hearts game I’m getting a bit worried. In January he was fairly adamant that transfers would be made and now he’s saying hopefully we’ll get players, unless he is on board with the way things are moving can we see him being let down twice.

    Everyone has to be Very realistic about the upcoming season, our current squad of players are good championship quality, they did a great job getting us promoted, although we looked mediocre on occasions we pulled through. Are we going to get enough players in and if we do will they be good enough. Atm we’re have no decent back up for several positions.

    It’s been a terrible transfer window so far if things don’t improve we’ll be very lucky to survive. Yes we have some decent players but so does everyone other established premier league club.
    Going to be a tough run.

    Parked up and just read the usual shyte from the unloved WUM TOF. Just as well nobody ever gives a toss what he says. Definitely not a Newcastle fan so no idea why he comes on here. Could be a mackem like, but more likely some idiot who believes the world owes him something. Ever been to SJP you nob? Not a chance. They draw the line at letting in retards in straightjackets, even in the away end. Do you even know where Newcastle is on the map? Ha ha ha, what a clown.
    Your carer needs to be more careful, allowing you near electrical equipment with all that drool slavering from your big gob. Then again, maybe they know exactly what they’re doing. 🙂

    Toon kk, been warning people all along that this season will be a struggle, right from the minute we sealed promotion. Too many people got carried away with top six nonsense. We’ll add some more players, but we can’t match the others for cash, not even those we regard as smaller than us. I maintain we’ll survive comfortably but it’s about getting reestablished in a difficult league, nothing more. Maybe a bit of realism might not be a bad thing. Anything we achieve has got to be earned, we have no divine right to be at the top end of the table, especially having just been promoted.

    My point which I know you were fully aware of was Darlow has a lot of mistakes in him judging from last season. He made a lot of mistakes and then some worldie saves recovering.

    Toon KK

    Fully agreed and no i’m not a WUM I just lowered my rose tinted glasses to see we at present are in in squad terms down with the weakest in the league with many of the players that got us relegated.

    Ok then Elliot is very slow and concedes a lot of ‘worldies’ because of it, he also gets injured regularly and doesn’t push to make starts (Krul went backwards because he it)

    Nice bloke am sure never a number 1 for a good club

    Bill, I thought I went easy on him mate. Even tried to prevent him electrocuting himself. 🙂 Anyway, pleased you appreciate my wordsmithery – I can even invent my own words when required; to hell with the English dictionary. All in good fun though mate. Can’t take too much piss out of some people though or you leave nothing left. 🙂

    You do realise that because we aren’t Darlows or Elliots biggest fans we will be labelled Mackems if we supported Newcastle we would love every player that seems to be the common theme when disregarding our players.

    Here we go, back on the road again. On to the next stop anyway. Why do lasses have to go to so many shops and still come out empty handed? Better post this before she gets to look over my shoulder!
    ‘Hello dearest, find what you were looking for? No? Never mind, plenty more shops to go in. No, of course I don’t mind…’ Later chaps.

    Haha only by idiots mate, I have never been a fan of Elliot on the pitch hes just so slow it upsets me to watch him, he is ok as a back up/3rd choice but Id have Harper over him any day of the week (maybe even now tbh)…Id honestly rather have Woodman playing now

    Darlow I like he makes mistakes but last season they were communication errors rather than goal keeping ones. Saying that I think he will leave if we get someone else in, he could be number 1 somewhere or payed a lot more being number 2

    I dont think some of our fans will ever be happy, no matter who we buy. Jacob Murphy is imo the best attack minded player in the England u21 squad which includes Redmond and Damarai Grey who would both walk into our squad. Just because he’s playing in the Championship doesnt mean he’s not good enough. He has abit o everything needed to become a top player and his value will double within a few years so its a very good piece of business….If we can actually sign him. Heres a few highlights for the people who actually watch football. Also Loic Remy leaving Chelsea, i’d take him back.

    He didn’t say angrily.

    Doesn’t then proceed to type a 1000 word essay in response as to why he’s not arsed.

    No Sir.

    Players like Dummet, Gouffran, Mitro, Anita are good enough. We have had plenty of them in otherwise poorly constructed squads, but more importantly not enough of the few better we’ve also badly needed, and also too many lesser players getting games. We’ve lacked depth, balance and quality, but those four players could easily have been part of better groups for us. We could have done with a few more of them in the right positions, and a few more better than them too.
