Premier League Club Set To Bid For Newcastle Target As Star Player Is Injured

The Sun’s Mike McGrath is reporting that Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe wants to bring in Liverpool winger Harry Wilson. The article is an exclusive and says that Bournemouth are readying a £25m bid for the Welsh international. This is the amount that Liverpool are said to be willing to sell Wilson for.

McGrath reports that Howe sees Wilson as competition for Ryan Fraser and David Brooks. However, there is breaking news out of Bournemouth that David Brooks has suffered a serious ankle injury that may require surgery.

Alan Nixon, also in the Sun, has the following report on David Brooks who played on the right side of midfield in 21 of his 33 appearances last season.

If Brooks requires surgery, that could hasten Bournemouth’s resolve to get Harry Wilson in as an early-season replacement. If Howe already sees Wilson as ideal competition for Brooks, then he may feel even more pressed to get the 22-year-old in now that Brooks looks to be sidelined for some time.

Newcastle seemed to sour on Harry Wilson after Liverpool slapped the £25m price tag on their youngster and stated they would not allow him out on loan. Newcastle also seemed to have the same reaction with Jarrod Bowen when Hull City stated his fee to be £20m.

Newcastle have instead concentrated on Nice’s Allan Saint-Maximin and have reportedly bid up to £18m for the Frenchman. However, Nice are said to want £20m. That deal also seems to have hit a roadblock over the fee as Saint-Maximin played 70 minutes for Nice in their friendly at Burnley last night. He, incidentally, did score a goal in the game.

We hope that Newcastle are still able to sign either one of these three players. They would be very good deals even at the prices mentioned. They are all young and still have plenty of room to improve. Most importantly they will improve the quality in the squad.

    Luckily we won’t have to listen to Brewcey calling the owner a liar or talking about short blankets. He’ll just do as he’s told as per his head coach contract.

    Btw I haven’t said we’ll be relegated, I said it’s just as likely as Brewcey having us in tenth by next May.

    Eddie Howe is an excellent manager but what he’s been doing recently is simple. Buy young British talent from the lower leagues and watch them soar in value. We keep baulking at the price and then watching them soar in value at another club. I’d like Howe as our manager. He’s one of the many 100s better than Bruce.

    It’s funny that a week or so ago Mike Ashley gave an interview saying in one part he needs to have better communication with the fans.

    Well Mike we haven’t heard anything about why the transfers seem to be getting screwed up since that interview.

    Why is the 2 million needed for one player such a huge issue, why after agreeing fee with another club we cannot fix a wage and contract dispute, why is Andy Carrol even knocking at the door, why do you or your supposed sidekick fcuk this up so easy.

    With no Rafa but players still willing to come to the club why mess around, remember Rafa big draw for players, Bruce not so much, if they say yes count your small mercies and fix this shit.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t sign anyone else. Ashley will gamble our epl status as usual. It’s no big deal for him.

    As it stands, we’d be lucky if we don’t finish rock bottom.

    From previous
    And my point is these goons running our club will not react logically. Money rules in Ashley’s world! He would not buy a player to cover an injured one!
    Unbelievable but it’s true that’s why people don’t believe how bad he is!
    So far 5 million spent out of a supposed budget of 90 million.
    Now he’s trying to get harry Wilson on loan ffs.
    I give up it’s pointless supporting Theo’s team when they’re salting the pl money away!

    The team we could have had if we’d paid that extra £2m would be worth billions now. Umtiti, Modric, Augebayang, Dele Ali, Van Dyke, Koulibaly (possibly), Kante (possibly).
    Add that to the ones we had but played out of position Wijnaldum, Thauvin, Sissoko etc.

    You know what?

    It’s about time people showed Dr Ed, Neil and “The Wife” a higher level of respect they do the best they can to keep us all up to speed with NUFC news and gossip. They are the creator’s and writers of this blog and in no way need the sh!te that is flung their direction.

    For one I appreciate all their efforts to provide news and a vehicle for us the fans of Newcastle United F.C.to have our say – but I wouldn’t blame them if they pulled the plug on some of the posters who can’t seem to accept that we are all entitled to have our own thoughts and views.

    A wise man once told me………….
    “You can please some of the people some of the time but you can’t please all the people all of the time!

    So come on lads & lasses try to show each other a slice of respect eh?

    We all only want best for Newcastle United F.C.

    Its great to see Shite Direct go tits up, but I wonder about Mash Holdings? Is it a company in its own right? Does it file accounts? I suspect that is where we will find out what really gets sucked out of our club, on top of whatever makes the wage bill up to 90-120 million a year.

    I have given up my season ticket at least 3 times during the FCB’s reign. But eventually go back. Rafa was the catalyst for me 3 years ago. I didn’t renew a month ago hoping it would force the takeover, but have now purchased a season ticket.
    As much as I want to hurt Ashley and force him out, a buyer will only come in if we are a stable PL club, which means we have to back the team and manager.

    Hooray someone who gets it !

    Neil and Ed please take note.
    JIB !

    It won’t be a case of us not supporting the manager it will be a case of Ashley not supporting the Manager ! That’s the important bit .

    And your admonishing Ed and Neil !

    A stable prem club ? When have we ever been that in the last 12 years under Ashley ?

    Once? We’v teetered on the edge of relegation many times while backing the Manager.

    The sold out ground season after season tells you that, despite the owner .

    Get your head around this ..We are going nowhere ..win nothing ..compete for nothing other than prem survival.

    Ashleys Model.

    You echo onmeedsons sentiments …you agreed with them … you might as well have said it your self.

    We have backed the manager for many season’s.. a full house each home game, season on season .
    Well it doesn’t work does it ?

    We give our all and Ashley does not care a jot , Ashley effectively sacking Rafa when he knows we loved the man as our manager and as a Man and all that was good about his ethos and standing in the game world wide ..the best Manager we could have hoped for and Ashley gets rid

    Discarded Rafa in effect through showing no ambition.

    Why would Rafa waste his life and the next few years of his life on a club going nowhere because of an owner with zero ambition to compete for anything ?

    Mark Douglas thinks any deals we potentially get might go down to the wire, why? Just why? What is so difficult, other clubs dont have this issue, there is no logic in any of this, so one can only presume we dont actually want anyone and Charnley is told to go for players but low ball, we must be getting a rep for total time wasters.

    Any nhormal club would want to get in players asap to intergrate them asap.

    Its just b0llocks that we have this supposed budget and a few actually good players who want to come(for some reason), and these players are well in the so called budget, and just nothing is happening, so sick of this blatant nonsense. If Bruce had any morals he would do a Keegan.

    Bruce said he wont talk about other teams players when asked about Saint Max, thats funny because the week before when asked he said we are looking at him, has the message been passed down that the transfer budget is a considerable amount smaller, thats why we have recently only been linked with the sweedish guy and all the talk of Saint Max, Wilson and Bowen has died

    Ashley is 100% rubbing the fans noses in the dirt .

    “I might own this Club forever ” !

    With those words he was saying ..Fk you Geordies..Im using your club to drive Sports Direct.. I will do anything I want , I will take the piss out of you anytime I want to have a laugh at your reaction..I will continue to wind up and frustrate you while pretending to sell, and season after season, you will all fall for it ..its a scream, and your winning nothing while each shirt you purchase, Sports Direct, and in turn me, will receive £64 pounds. Newcastle United will get one pound but I will get that pound back by charging Newcastle united for keeping those shirts in my warehouse ..

    So each shirt you buy the Club will receive nothing ..I will pocket it all .

    Seriously, and with respect to a couple of people here …If you buy a shirt or attend a game your 100% wrong to do so .

    He is laughing at you all the way to his near £3 billion pound fortune.

    Laughing at you.

    Sports Direct United.

    Those who say we have to support the team whatever and Jib’s total support!
    We now know with all certainty that Ashley doesn’t want to sell up.
    Every season we get a huge payment of about £124 million over and above trading revenues and we know that the club spends an average of about £10 million net on team strengthening.
    Ashley gets away with this every season and the press, media and PL must know this, so he can now apparently do this every season and we don’t have a huge surplus.
    All we do by “supporting the team” is facilitating this!
    Just so you know and as long as you’re happy then carry on!
    Me, I’m out!
