Players And Club Tweet After First Day Back



The players have completed their first day back at Newcastle in preparation for the season ahead. The club kept up with the activities of the day on Twitter sending out pictures and videos of the players.

They can be very good at communicating when it deals with things like training but it only highlights how sorely the club is lacking in other areas of communication.

However, in this case the communication with the fans was excellent as they sent out the following tweets:

One gripe we would have is that the club seems to be intent on acting as if everything is normal when it definitely is not. Some communication about the proposed takeover, the manager search, or even the future plans of the club would really help to calm the fears of many supporters.

In regards to the tweets on the activities of the day, we have no complaints. Though something really needs to be said about the state of the club off the pitch at the moment.

A handful of players also got involved and sent out tweets recognizing their first day back at training. One of the ones we were very happy to see back was Florian Lejeune who sent out a tweet simply saying “First day of pre-season training!”

However, he was carrying a bag over his head and with the current state of affairs at the club we were slightly worried that he may have packed up and left. Then we realized it was a weight bag and it was being used for fitness. In all seriousness, it is great to see Florian make such strides in his recovery from his second devastating knee injury in less than a year.

Here are the tweets went out by Florian, Federico Fernandez, and Paul Dummett:

    I think I will keep on with the Dubai Micky didn’t know what he was talking about theme.

    Especially since he has backtracked on everything he ever said.

    I read Sorrenson was on international duty and has been given extra time off, like Miggy etc.

    Micky,

    When you say Sorensen will be away – you mean on loan?

    OK boys. Insult me again.

    Dubai Micky has been wrong on everything he said and backtracked to make himself feel better,

    Now he is thinking the takeover will not happen even though he was all ITK before.

    BUT I am the one spouting shyte and not him. FFS, wake up.

    I think lesh gave you some good advice about how you carry on here.
    Maybe take it on board .your call .
    Dubai mickey shared what he knew in good faith and so have a few in the past .
    been on here long enough to see the difference between the wums and itk .
    as far as i knew he never claimed to be in the know just passed on what he was hearing over there as would most of us.
    He was also doing his best to help us understand the intrigues of the Arab business world.
    What he was saying could / still might come off .who knows,Its Ashley we are dealing with so the rule book of normal behavior is firmly out the window.
    I don’t even mind your comments on cricket and have replied to a few ,especially when there is nowt else to talk about in the small hours (uk time) but if you want to avoid the verbal kicking like you were copping the other night maybe just pull things back a touch .
    Your hammering the frog for saying its not going down and hammering dubai for daring to say the opposite.
    The frustration here is felt by all and will get worse the longer this is dragged out.
    direct it at the guy responsible would my call.

    Where are all the stories about players we are interested in? We are constantly linked with players during the season, hardly a day goes by without these stories. It is the transfer window and season ticket renewal deadline and it’s been strangely quiet. The last thing I can remember is GFFN saying we’d nearly agreed personal terms with that french winger who Jose likes.
    Strange things are afoot at the circleK.

    You are a hypocrite, you cry wolf and your a bit pathetic.

    Wait until later when you start feeling sorry for yourself because you’ve been called out. You are a proper little baby sunshine.

    You certainly know how to make friends !

    We don’t look on Micky as a rock star, just our man on the ground giving us information on the UAE Royal Family.
    If you did have any sympathy on this blog then you’ve just blown it, you stupid fcuking tw@t.

    How can fans unite and drive fatty out of the club when all they do on here is bicker

    Mike ashley is here for the long haul lads so saddle up

    While fans are divided and keep giving him their money then we’re doomed

    Weather u like it or not, the fans who just keep goin are the MAIN reason the club wont b sold

    No need mate, let’s get behind Mickey not ridicule him,
    I would prefer peeps to share their itk bits. Gives us a little hope, without these titbits all that’s left for us on blog is petty little spats. And stupid rows

    if Dubai Micky is wrong in everything he says, then maybe he should be called out on it?

    Every thing he has said in the last month has been wrong. FFS.

    Tony,

    You’re attacking Micky for no reason. All he did was pass on what he knew along with his knowledge of the Arab business world. He stated as much when he did pass on information. He can’t be held liable for things that don’t come off, (as OFD stated above, this is FATASH we’re dealing with; throw the book out of the window).

    OFD pretty much stated how I feel about it…DM felt that with the information he was getting that the deal was closer to closing than being off. Slagging him off or trying to make him “fess-up” to being a WUM is disingenuous. He was only passing information in good faith. It’s not his fault that you took it as gospel…a realistic person would understand that FCB has a history of moving the goalposts and creating narratives in the media, be it MSM or social media. Understanding that, every piece of information about any take over has to be taken with a huge lump of salt.

    We’re all frustrated and are starved for information. You aren’t doing anyone any favors by taking the piss out of DM.

    Fog (and others), it’s all very quiet here, no gossip, no rumours, nothing sadly. It’s just because it’s got to that point that I’m beginning to think (personally, my opinion etc.), that maybe it’s not happening. However, then I think just how much real cash has been thrown into this by BZG (and their partners), which makes me think that once this far down the road, there really is no going back. Just an opinion – which makes this blog tick.

    NY Mag, Sorrenson is training with the under 23s when we don’t have an obvious striker available (if Joselu goes). Just surprising.

    Wait and see I guess, we can all speculate, que sera sera and all that.

    And Tony, thank you so much for your kind words, you must have lots of very close friends.

    hey tony dont have a go at micky he give us the info on whats been said over there, if you want to have a go at someone try the owner of the club who always moves goalposts, the arguments dont get you anywhere really thats what ashley wants so instead of having a go at people try ashley instead

    Micky doesn’t have a hotline to the BZG HQ, he has a network of friends and contacts in Dubai, which means any news that leaks out over there, he is best placed amongst us to find that out. I suspect that information leaking out tightens up as the process moves on. Micky’s information has come to pass and proved solid. The geordie dentist fella was connected enough to see the heads of terms document, but even he’s out of the loop now. I for one appreciate Micky’s titbits and time will prove him correct when we are owned by BZG.

    Dubia Micky has said nothing that is correct. A lot of stories that he knows people in the Mid= East and nothing has come true.

    Show me a word he said that has come true?

    He supposedly knows lots of influential people over there and yet NOT A WORD HE SAID HAS WORKED OUT/

    called out?
    what for ?
    He shared what he knew . end of.
    We had guys during the staverley one who were close to it and were trying to get bits out as to what was going on.
    you need to understand if you are getting bits of info you have to be careful what you are putting out as the person who gave you in it confidence could be pulled in if only they are one of a few who are meant to have that info, its not tsunki rocket surgery is it 🙂 ?
    Those guys got battered when the deal was called off,even though they were backed up later by caulkin in the times that bids were put in but goal posts moved (suprise suprise)
    Those guys will now never bother sharing anything they know again no doubt because of this level of verbal
    For what its worth i think it is dead but that’s got nothing to do with mickey so not sure what you want to call him out on.
    Follow your own path .your call really

    that’s where you’re wrong. DM passed on information he was told. He doesn’t need to be called out on it if the information turns out not to come to pass. He has ZERO control over that. He was just passing on information.

    as mickey has said many times dubai is quite a small tight knit little place and the expat geordie community even smaller so out there we have architects,developers ,lawyers and yes even dentists all proud geordies who no doubt spread the good word .
    think about it when you go to a dentist you will talk ,lots if your on the good stuff so they are as likely to here stuff as the clerks copying the contracts .
    anyways…
    Here is a little distraction .tell me this guy dosen’t get some gossip .he probably knew wynaldum was off long before we did .

    Tony, I have read all your posts to date, although it is getting harder and harder. I was even prepared to give you the benefit of the doubt as you played victim, thinking maybe you couldn’t see the part you played in creating the scuffles. It has become increasingly obvious to me now that you are either an attention seeking wum, or you have deep seated psychological issues. Are you like this in everyday life, or just on the blog?
