Local Journalists Give Update On Transfer Target



Three local journalists are reporting issues with Newcastle’s pursuit of Hull City’s Jarrod Bowen.

Liam Kennedy has written in the Shields Gazette that Newcastle are unwilling to match the Hull’s £20m fee for the twenty-two-year-old.

Lee Ryder with the Chronicle also echoes those sentiments and has sent the following tweet on this development.

Keith Downie with Sky Sports is reporting that Jarrod Bowen is on the back burner for now. That may be due to the reported asking price.

We suspect that the top two targets right now are Nice’s Allan Saint-Maximin and PSG’s Stanley N’Soki who Newcastle currently have bids in for. We have yet to hear if either of the reported bids have been rejected though both are less than the asking prices of the players.

Both players did not feature in their pre-season friendlies today so that may be some good news.

Steve Bruce did not have too much information on the transfer front after today’s game. Mark Douglas from the Chronicle did tweet this about Bruce’s response on transfers.

    Just a fan doesn’t want an avatar in case we get some sort of predisposition of what he/she was like.

    So I notice a few fell for Mikey’s latest about Rafa jumping ship for the Chinese dosh and leaving us all in the clarts. Pity they didn’t save them selves from looking like mugs by thinking through mike’s logic first.

    Essex very few do. My avatar oozes professional editing and subtle caricature.

    I did it with paint and it took at least 12 minutes, never one to rush things.

    I was on the match today,

    Disappointing result of course but the first half performance from most of the lads was very decent. Shelvey, Hayden, Dummett and Ritchie were clearly missed in the 2nd half though.

    Aarons was surprisingly good and lively and a very promising performance from young Matty Longstaff (he looked by far the better Longstaff anyway).

    Joelinton looks a lively player, strong, good movement, and always looking for the ball but needs someone playing off him I’d say. I think he should’ve took the penalty but it was a good save from Almirons effort to be fair on Miggy.

    Hopefully today’s performance from Sean Longstaff was just a rusty run out because I don’t like to say it but he was shockingly bad, possibly one of the worst performances I’ve seen from a toon player in a long time.

    Also Colback was actually pretty decent aswell and got stuck in.

    Other than that, we need to sign Saint Maximin asap and back-up for Shelvey and Hayden.

    My gravatar oozes an inability to learn how to make a gravatar. What I do have represents the purity of hope in white, on a background of earthly troubles mostly centered around Ashley in grey.

    Lol, gravatars are a complicated thing, more so than Ashley’s accounting techniques!
    You asked something about what having no gravatar would prove whether posters are multiples.
    I have just shown that your name changes remain even after changing it back.
    And with the gravatars, if a poster doesn’t have one then they can easily be a multiple.
    The if they have a gravatar though, the only way to get around that is to have another email and account.
    I don’t actually know what I’ve said is correct. I think I am.

    Avatars are less a statement about one as they are about ones’ mood. One does awfully tend to change ones’ avatar when ones’ temperament demands. One is currently languishing under the billowing grey vapours of a gloomy fug, which dictates one should perhaps consider changing ones avatar to reflect ones cloudy vapour.

    One.

    Runes are an ancient Nordic/Germanic alphabet obtained by Odin after he hung from Yggdrasil, the magic tree, for 9 days and nights and they are credited with having magical powers.

    And it is indeed possible that the Norns, the witches who spin the web of fate, know about Ashlie, but we mere mortals are not party to that knowledge.

    Although you might be able to google their web address, (did you get that?) 🙂 and ask them.

    An avatar would severely crimp the multiples style, not least because the day they inevitably slip up (i.e. when jib and online both got caught out answering themselves, lest anyone forget ha ha) the avatar would pop up on all their previous personas posts in history. The usual suspects say they won’t get one to defy the demands to get one (you can’t tell me what to do!) But we all know they can’t remember which personas they used and when over the last decade so they could potentially get instantly found out and dobbed in to Neil and Ed. Well I would that’s for sure 🙂

    As if that wasn’t enough, #NUFC’s online merchandising’s owned by Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct. Not by Newcastle United. Newcastle’s commercial paucity is a claim Ashley likes to make a lot. But he generally leaves out these facts pic.twitter.com/hgWJ2JsbvR

    I thought Brucie’s Prem win rate was 28% toon 22. Don’t go bigging him up like that.
