Newcastle Now Linked With Former England U21 International


Alan Nixon in the Sun writes that Newcastle are looking at Bournemouth’s Jordon Ibe as a possible target this summer. This link has really come from nowhere and we are not too sure about this one.

Ibe is generally deployed on the right-wing but can be used as an attacking midfielder or second striker. He seems to be similar to what we already have in terms of what he would add to the squad.

If Newcastle are to bring in another forward, they need to bring in one with a physical presence. Jordon Ibe is certainly a strong talented player but at only 5’8″ he would be very similar in stature to all of our other forwards barring Joelinton.

He also does not seem to fit the 3-5-2 formation that Steve Bruce will use this upcoming season unless he sees Ibe filling a role at right wing-back. Though he certainly is not a defensive-minded player.

Jordon Ibe– Newcastle interested?

Ibe joined Bournemouth three years ago from Liverpool for around £15m in what at the time was a big and surprising capture for the club.

They had just unexpectedly survived their first season in the top-flight and to be able to get in a player many considered to be a rising star was very eye-opening.

He has been sort of a mixed bag at Bournemouth over the past three years. In 88 appearances, he has 5 goals and 9 assists and last season saw him make only 9 starts in the Premier League.

Bournemouth also will be missing David Brooks with an ankle injury for the next three months. Brooks made 20 appearances on the right for Bournemouth so they may not want to let Ibe leave unless they can get someone in. They have been linked to Liverpool’s Harry Wilson over the past week.

We just don’t see too much in this as he really doesn’t provide much in the areas that the squad seem to be lacking. He certainly has the talent to be a success in the Premier League but he just has not put it all together while at Bournemouth.

Ibe has had a very impressive preseason for the Cherries and still is just 23 years old. He is a player that could still improve but just has been very inconsistent in his career thus far.

    The mackems call us mags, they call us Geordie’s too. Because that’s what we are.

    Stop ‘playing the victim card’ on behalf of toon 22. If you harrass people and gang up on people then you deserve it when others do it to you. Same goes for Tony. Or if you want to make Toon22 a poor victim, accept that Tony is also a poor victim.

    1 poster being harassed by 3 or more for 12 hours, it was football talk nearly all day up until that point.

    Toon22 does his fair share I’m not denying that, he hasn’t spent 12hrs with every post directed at 1 poster.

    Who really is disrupting the blog?
    most skip 22 excerpt for his obsessive anti fans who then turn the blog into what we saw last night.

    The same people disrupt the blog, turning their attention from different posters depending on their mood and which argument will cause the most trouble.

    Posada,
    You’re basing that on paper. Perez and Rondon got 23/24 goals last season and both with bags of PL experience. Kenedy was shite last season but doesn’t mean it’s ok to replace him with someone not good enough either. Squad fillers have to be able to push first teamers as well for competition. Soton have got Ings, Austin, Long, Adams and Obafemi up top. We have got Joelinton, Muto and Gayle with a combined total of one PL goal from last season. If Joelinton doesn’t do the business or worse still does and gets a bad knock then we are knackered. But that’s what a purple policy will do. We could well afford Joelinton and Rondon or a Rondon type in the same team.
    ****************************************
    Interesting.
    Rondon and Perez got those goals. Most after Christmas after Almiron provided the pace they don’t have and the time they needed. Although Perez has a bit of pace himself. Rondon took 3 months to get fit and going. No other team in the Prem took him so presumably did not want to match the fee and the China wages.
    Kennedy. Gone and no great loss. Murphy is back and was always coming back. You can’t just make him disappear. He’s not a casino chip to cash in. Certainly not for the 12M we paid.
    Still next week to go. Would agree we need another forward.
    I have to say there is nothing about the Southampton group that makes me think they are so wonderful.
    Adams going up a level.
    Some handy players but not prolific.
    Ings has scored 10 goals in the past 5 years.

    Athletic ability is key now I think.
    Pace.
    In J/lin, Almo and St Max that’s what they have gone for.
    Will they have the quality.
    Well, lets hope we can trust our scouts whoever they may be.

    I think it’s been a decent pre season and we’ve brought some decent players in too.

    Could probably do with I’ve or two more but the squad as is is probably good enough to compete.

    One overriding issue still to resolve, but with dedication and resolve that will happen over time. We’re in it for the long haul. I bet fatty isn’t.

    Looking forward to the season, though I’ll be viewing it from afar and hope the majority will join us.

    Geordie tom Munster.

    Your both full of shit, during the football talk yesterday you both referred to 22 in virtually your 1st posts of the day, before he came on, saying he’d come on and ruin it etc, which infact YOU were doing.

    I’d understand if you both came on to talk football, Munster is here to get his hatred of the English and Rafa off his chest and Tom is here because Judith Chalmers needs a presence on the blog.

    If you 2 are fair and balanced or a fair representation of Nufc the clubs funked.

    I JUst find it interesting, when you take personnel feelings out of the equation, basing it just on the same metrics for all the teams, they have us 8th.

    I personally think 10th.

    im no fan of Ashley, but his impact footballing wise is massively over exaggerated. and i personally think any manager and his team of coaches has more impact in this area.

    Ashley is killing the club brand.

    I think Bruce will do ok, better than most think, because most of you have set the bar very low and expect the worst.

    anyway, im looking forward to the new season.

    Ibe has been pretty poor for all Eddie Howe gets praised he’s actually spent a lot of money on shite for high prices Ibe and Solanke are terrible!!

    Does play good football but funnily enough Newcastle have finished above them 2 season in a row and have been the far better team in all 4 games where our lack of finishing cost us in a few of the games!? Shows how good Rafa did with having no net spend while Howe got to spend big….. balanced perspective and all that chat 🙂

    Op,
    I was on the blog from 9-11 and it was football talk until t22 appeared. Then he quickly and repeatedly started the nonsense about mags. Then jib and the other person he accused retaliated. Eventually after a whole night of crap a few others chipped in. Go back and check if you want. That is 100% what happened. It wasn’t a bunch of bloodthirsty mackems appeared from nowhere to pick on poor toon22. If you repeatedly call people a mackems they have a right to retaliate with the same sort of crap.

    Can anyone copy and paste an example of when t22 posted football? Even during a match nothing.
