Report – Ex-Chelsea Midfielder To Undergo Medical At Newcastle

Football Insider are reporting that Kyle Scott will undergo a medical at Newcastle United.

Kyle Scott was said to be signing for Newcastle in a report in the Sun early last month. That report stated that Scott would join Newcastle on a free once his deal at Chelsea expired on June 30th.

Pete O’Rourke with Football Insider has written the following:

Midfielder Kyle Scott is set to undergo a Newcastle United medical and complete a move to the club in the next 48 hours, Football Insider can reveal.

A Newcastle source has told Football Insider that Scott, 21, is poised to sign a three-year contract after accepting the club’s offer to join on a free transfer.

The U20 US international can play both defensive and attacking midfield positions. But he would most likely be one for the future.

He is just 21 years old but has not had much experience beyond the Chelsea reserves.

He was on loan at second division Dutch side SC Telstar for the first part of last season but that loan was ultimately terminated. He had made 14 appearances for the club.

This would be the first summer signing for Newcastle and if true, could happen while the club remain without a manager.

Steve Bruce made comments earlier today that a decision on his future depended on both clubs reaching a compromise and that something could be decided in the next couple of days.

    Its more like sh!te direct united, I wonder how much money they are paying for advertising this season since the club is valued at £350m surely the “debt “does not exist anymore?
    Not that the money will be invested in the club or players

    Maybe, but what does that even mean? Ashley could point to Fulham and say they spent loads, we did our business wisely so we didn’t have to spend huge amounts. When we were struggling, we went out and spent £20million and improved our level.

    It’s just not something that would be looked at unless the club were in a perilous position. This isn’t me saying Ashley should stay, it’s me taking a realistic viewpoint and removing our emotional attachment to the club.

    By all means, write the emails, send letters, but don’t get your hopes up. I’m half tempted to email, just to see if there is any kind of response to it other than maybe an automatic acknowledgement.

    To have a chance of impact, you’d need the emails to be going directly to someone more senior.

    In terms of the planned letter to the FA etc it’s an interesting idea. The FA & Premier League are incredibly protective of their respective brands – and rightly so considering they bring in considerable revenue the globe over. So suggesting that MA’s running of Newcastle is essentially bringing ‘the game’ (in fact the two aforementioned brands) would draw attention to the fact MA is happy to not bring value to these two brands but merely exist and generate revenue off the back of them.

    As always it comes down to one simple thing – one thing the press seem unable to comprehend – we Newcastle fans are NOT demanding billions investment (nice as that would be) just that our owner shows a little ambition beyond the bear minimum of keeping us in the cash-cow that is the Premier League.

    I would love to see a draft of said letter as, if worded correctly, it could generate some very intriguing press coverage and apply national, and if really smart international, coverage for the abomination that is Mike Ashley.

    Rafa has laid the foundations of a great team that play with skill and spirit and with a few additions to the squad could well push for the top eight of the Premier League supported by passionate fans.

    Instead the ground will be full of so called neutral supporters and overseas students looking to watch their beloved Liverpool or Man B while munching a burger but not really knowing why they are there.

    Bruce seriously needs to walk away from this shambolic crisis and stick the equivalent of 52,000 fingers up at him.

    I’d love to know what is being done by the supporters groups. Are they together discussing a unified approach? Are they making plans for a series of protests? Are they nailing down a specific focus of what they feel will impact Ashley the most?

    In the past, we’ve had one off protests and minor events targeting anything and everything. Organised separately by various groups. There shouldn’t ever have been a need to setup so many new supporters groups, we need to be singing from the same sheet.

    Target home games, fine, boycott Arsenal, but what’s the plan for the following game? Everyone stay in seats after the match? Stewards and police couldn’t leave while the ground is full and the club foot their bill. That would get huge coverage, fans staying in the ground, chanting against Ashley and Charnley. Late walk in – but fully supported and better organised. Late return for the second half etc.

    There’s plenty of ideas and options that include those who don’t want to give up going.

    A sit down or standing protest after the game at the car park exit. A better organised andd attended march.

    Away games are another one, and will highlight further to other fans who, may well support the cause.

    This sort of approach will only happen if the groups come together under one banner.

    A march to London is what is needed, the Jarrow crusade, not about our plight but to highlight the Victorian working conditions at SD, the zero hour contracts and the use of child labour in third world countries, that would put the spotlight on him with Caulkin getting as many as his media pals on the case, the fact that we’d be dressed in Black and White would be entirely coincidental!!!

    This club under Ashley, has spent money, not enough that’s for sure, but millions has been wasted on either a cheaper alternative or totally the wrong player. Then as soon as we have a player with quality or real potential he’s sold.
    What a mess.

    Whether people realize it or not Ashley’s options are becoming fewer and fewer. He has more or less guaranteed we will never get a world class manager under him again. He is creating a strong likelihood that we will be relegated yet again. It might not happen this season depending on how many of the better players we hang on to but within a couple of seasons it’s very likely. His methods don’t work and he knows that. That’s why he tried Rafa. Now that option is gone as well. What’s next for him? He doesn’t dare say he’s putting the club up for sale at the end of the coming season. He would have to approach potential buyers quietly to avoid the disaster he has created again this time. Very shaky ground you’re on Mikey.

    A March to Totteridge? I’d probably start with seeing how many can be bothered to march to the ground. If Charnley does live in Gosforth, maybe a gathering outside of his, staying within the law, a few songs, banners, protests, and then march to the ground for a home game.

    I think the only thing that will really worry Ashley is a terrible start to the season. Because there will be no Rafa around to pull us out of it. If we did get relegated what option would that leave for Ashley? No sale possible, all the lies used up this year, desperation. Hughton in to bring us back up? I could definitely see him trying that. Would it be effective again? Only if backed with money. What a disturbing cycle that we can’t seem to break. I say squeeze Ashley hard this season every way you can. Several boycotted home games would definitely get his attention quickly.

    Fans can’t stay away from the ground for one game, do we expect them to march in protest?

    Not wanting to be critical of those fans who want to go to the games, but if they’re unable giving up their habitual comfort of watching a game and paying a scumbag for the privilege they’re unlikely to put themselves out to protest in numbers.

    We’re the architects of our own downfall. Ashley does what he wants because there are no consequences.

    Fans calling other fans, or blaming other fans for the situation is never going to get us anywhere. I’m not a huge fan of the boycott idea as I’m unsure how empty the ground will actually be, but as a start point for a full movement, then let’s try it.

    If we get 30k or more in, while that is a significant amount of no shows, it would result in further fighting between ourselves. It will also discourage those who stayed away but we’re borderline on the decision.

    It needs a unifying figure to help encourage the boycott without abuse, and to discourage abuse of those who don’t stay away. It will have to be well managed, which is another reason we need the groups to be unified.

    Well, on the human rights angle for SD, you could get a sizeable amount of non NUFC fans taking it up, maybe even some campaigners. But it does lose its message regarding NUFC, and I think that needs to be our focus. I think there has to be some sort of focus on SD, but it has to be in a way that is tied in to NUFC as well.

    An explanation of how Mike Ashley is using PR spin on Newcastle United fans courtesy of the Mag

    There are two types of spin which PR companies use.

    Whether these be for political parties or anyone else who spend their lives manipulating the masses, thus using smoke and mirrors (doublespeak for lies and deception) to create confusion amongst their particular victims.
    Simply divide and conquer while conducting business behind the scenes to better your own means.
    These two types of spin are Overt and Covert.

    Overt refers to standard or benign public relations tactics, such as writing press releases, staging events, giving speeches and appearing in the media.

    Covert, on the other hand, refers to a range of cynical techniques to manage information – these are the more malign tactics most people associate with “spin” (Mike Ashley and his PR spin man Keith Bishop pictured above).

    The list below contains a wide range of “covert” tactics drawn. Each of these tactics is employed in a bid to exert control over the way the news media report the message:

    The leak:
    These are strategic leaks offered by the principle or their staff to journalists, in exchange for no scrutiny. In other words, you only get the leak if you promise not to seek comment from the opposing side, or other critics. (This is increasing and is a real problem with Mike Ashley/Newcastle United..)

    The freeze:

    Punishing journalists for negative reporting (such as when the NUFC accounts were revealed in April, Lee Charnley only met and spoke to selected journalists. Or alternatively when Mike Ashley has totally banned journalists/newspapers in the past).

    The spray:

    A form of bullying and intimidation, this is another way of punishing journalists/opposition for negative coverage. Many reporters who file an unfavourable story can expect to “cop a spray” over the phone after it’s published.

    The drip:
    The act of keeping favoured reporters on a drip of exclusive information (NUFC feeding official media partners).

    Staying on message:

    The goal of every public appearance or interview by the principle. In itself, it’s not a malign tactic, but the constant repetition of the same messages without answering questions can be a form of obfuscation.
    This refers to shifting away from a difficult question or issue to the one he or she wants to talk about.

    The vomit principle:

    This rule of thumb is widely referred to in principle offices (ED: As opposed to pub fireplaces…). The idea is that if you repeat something so often you feel like vomiting, only then is it likely to be cutting through with the public.

    Playing a dead bat:

    This refers to not responding to a media inquiry or giving a minimal response in an effort to kill the story (No comment throughout this Summer when Ashley/NUFC asked to give clarity to Newcastle fans about a potential takeover).

    The truth, but not the whole truth:

    This refers to being selective with what one reveals, sharing only the most beneficial or least damaging information.

    Throwing out the bodies/taking out the garbage:

    These tactics are used to disclose damaging information under the cover of a major distraction (at NUFC this would be anything taking place under the cover of another takeover story). Other common ways to bury bad news are: announcements on Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve, or undercover of any major event or news story that can distract the masses.

    Get rid of it now:

    The aim of this tactic is to release all of the damaging information on an issue at one time, so the negative story can be dealt with quickly rather than allowing it to bleed on for weeks in the media. Eg If you’ve got to eat a sh.. sandwich you’ve got to eat it straight away… The advice was always, ‘Get rid of it now. Go and deal with it now’.”


    Setting up or staging a diversion to distract attention away from another issue. eg launching a new policy to distract from a negative issue in an attempt to shift the media’s attention.


    This means testing or floating an idea before making a commitment to announce it.

    Feeding or starving a story:

    Feeding a story means keeping it alive by commenting on it in the media. Starving a story means starving it of oxygen by not commenting on it. The theory being that after a while the media will get bored and move on.

    Keeping out of the media/being a small target:

    This is a useful tactic if the principle is unpopular and affects their standing to their public.

    Flying under the radar:

    This refers to just quietly getting on with things without publicising it.

    Dishing dirt;

    This is where old claims suddenly emerge publicly in an effort to smear someone’s reputation. The “dirt” can come from outside or inside an organisation. It’s a tactic used to try to destroy someone’s career or reputation (Compare this with the recent dismissal of Rafa and the usual mouthpieces that crawl out from under their rocks spouting ‘He left for the money. Mike had promised him XYZ so he’s just a mercenary blah blah blah.’ Thank you Keys, Wise, Harmison etc).


    Using specific subtle language and messages to target a particular section of the audience.

    This is all you need to know about Ashley’s modus operandi through Keith Bishop and all of the other sycophants they use. All of the points above have achieved his goal for the past 12 years. It’s still happening as can be observed by the amount of punters turning up week after week ‘Because we’ve always done it, we’re true fans’.

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.

    Why don’t the masses dare to be different and see if by working together they can achieve a different more positive outcome for this once great club?
