Newcastle Miss Out On Another Top Target



We had reported for the past two days about the Nikola Vlasic to CSKA Moscow transfer making big progress. Well, today the Russian club have captured the midfielder who had been with them on loan last season.

Vlasic has permanently joined CSKA Moscow on a 5-year contract in a £14m move from Everton. It looks like this was his only option as no other clubs appeared to make a serious approach for the player.

The news in recent days was that Everton were waiting for Newcastle to make a move, but with everything on hold right now that never materialized.

Below is the tweet from the Moscow club confirming what has to be a top signing for them:

This is another long-term target that has been signed while Newcastle are in a state of limbo. The main focus right now has to be getting this club out of Mike Ashley’s control so it can make the progress the Newcastle fans so deserve.

    Blimey a fast late bus service, took most of the night catching up and now I’m have to chase with a broken leg (well OK a bruised one)

    I cant actually remember my 1st Newcastle game or when I started watching them but I do remember seeing Vic Keeble in the 1st team so it must have been around 56/7. He lost his place to Len White who was probably my favourite ever Newcastle player.

    Bet Len White’s favorite player was Mitch.

    First post in years and i missed the bus, twice!! so here’s a re-post.

    Been following this site for years and years but mostly as a reader, though i do recall posting occasionally in the beginning. After RobLeenios earlier post about searching back through time i thought id give it a go. Man was i surprised, found posts of mine going back to 2008.

    And here was one back in 2009 about an arab-shiekh investor.

    http://www.nufcblog.com/2009/06/22/arab-shiekh-said-to-invest-in-a-top-english-club/

    Well a decade on i’m still praying it finally happens. Having everything crossed its the real deal this time as i don’t want to be posting a link to this article in another decades time

    Just to save people checking, the Russian text in that tweet above says ‘Mike Ashley is a c**t’. No need to Google it or anything because that’s definitely what it says.

    You’re welcome.

    Just read some more about Vic, apparently when he passed away he was the last surviving member of the great 50s cup winning teams.

    Halftimebovril,

    That must be the most ITK prediction of the century – you knew 10years in advance that the sheikh was going to buy us…..wow 😀

    Two of my favorite bloggers! However you both should consider getting Avatars so that a WUM cannot ever spoof being you and say something to wind others up.

    I know, I know, melodramatic! 😉

    Funny how a couple of seldom posters have found old posts on potential sales to Arab investors.

    Maybe toon22 is right?

    You are right, I’ll look into rectifying that…..

    Just done a search for my moniker to see when I started following the blog and it came back zilch.

    Although I did find some history from when I used a different name, my only other one by the way.

    I haven’t bothered as most of my blogging is done on the PC and avatars don’t show up.

    I do follow the comments on my tablet and phone but seldom post so it’d be a bit pointless.

    Oh, and HalftimeBovril, someone posted a couple of weeks ago about a command you can type into your browser address bar which will list all posts by a defined poster.

    I’ve mentioned in the hope that it will be posted again. If you don’t ask, you don’t get!

    It’s more accurate than just the google search I mentioned.

    I was trying to find my first post as I think it’s coming up on my first anniversary of posting – but I can’t find it. However, I do vividly remember the first reply I got – jib called me an effing idiot (don’t worry jib, I don’t hold it against you) 🙂

    Rob,
    It’s a crusade! An Avatar crusade! 😉

    Actually i slightly remind myself of those commercials urging people to vaccinate their kids! I’m sure if I continue this cause I will be labeled by some as something worse than being melodramatic! 😉

    That would be an honour I wouldn’t be worthy of, however I’d definitely go for the Librarian in a Toon top or the Luggage with a black and white striped paint job. 🙂

    Fair enough. We know your post style so well that if a post appeared and tried to wind us up with your user name or said something rude having we would know it was a fake!

    Not sure the Librarian needs a ladder, mind. He’d look good in a Toon top – like a more hairy Jack Colback.

    Incidentally I see that the places that were burnt out last year are getting a massing payout to rebuild their town, that’s got to be good news!

    Bill,
    Yes, the city of Paradise reached a settlement with the utility company, P.G.&E, for $270 million.

    Many home owners however have received personal insurance settlements and many have chosen to leave the area. I’ve been up there a few times and the town still looks like a ghost town even though some homes and businesses survived.

    Been thinking why would MA change the financial and of year by one day? From the 30th to the 29th. The optimist in me says to announce takeover and Rafas new contract on 30th.

    Terms have been agreed between us and Mike Ashley; these terms have been reflected in a document, signed by both parties, which has been forwarded to the Premier League.The proof of funds statement was forwarded to Mike Ashley’s lawyers on 17 April 2019.

    Florida,

    It’s a standard practice – the minimum you can change a companies filing date is by one day, and by doing that you buy yourself three addional months to file any accounts.
