Chronicle Reporter Mark Douglas Tweets Photo Of New Signing Arriving For Medical


Mark Douglas has tweeted the following photo of Swede Emil Krafth arriving for his medical.

So it does look like earlier reporting from Swedish sportswriter Daniel Kristoffersen was correct. Emil certainly seems to have dressed for the occasion with a collared shirt. Though we’ll have to have a word with him about it being red and white.

This is excellent news as the right-back position needed an addition. This one was drawn out quite a bit as Amiens wanted to keep their new signing but it looks as if it is nearing completion. This is a massive move for the twenty-five-year-old who we hope can have a big impact at Newcastle.

    I’ve left tops in Kenya, Jamica, Greece, Canada, USA, Mecxico and Bosnia and a few others I can’t remember, usually in a sports bar I’ve been watching the footy.

    Enjoy tracking them down.

    Just been speaking to a sweedish guy I work with his words not mine

    He’s great defensively but not so great going forward, like a right sided Paul Dummer

    I said I didn’t expect anymore signings for the first team.

    No doubt someone will slap me round the chops with a cheese slice to prove a point.

    Is this a body or a improvement on what we have?

    I don’t recall seeing this lad play, even in the World Cup when I’m sure he was their right back in a couple games.

    So don’t want to judge him or write him off but I feel there were better options for a rb/rwb if we were willing to spend a little on it than the reported £5m. I mean we still have some left over from the reported ‘war chest’.

    91m after perez sold. 93m after Joselu
    34m left after joelinton (40m), ASM (18m) and willems (1m loan fee).
    For arguments sake, make it 30m after agents fees etc

    @ Ronaldo Aaron’s don’t forget the full wages for the period of the contract, Joelinton, St Max both on 6 yr contracts. Doubt there is any money left. Loans from now on mate.

    I’m not against loans but there’s still money available. Whether wages are accounted for in transfer fees or from say tv revenue etc

    Manu to make another bid for Longstaff, one way to balance the books. It’s going to be a nervy 26 hrs or thereabouts.

    No, another knacker though.

    He thinks he’s credible and thinks he can discredit others with his weak stirring.

    I’d love him to come to TMG, he’d be easy to spot, sat terrified in the corner using Twitter to disagree

    Add to that 1 goal and 1 assist in 3062 minutes played. He was involved in 36 games for Amiens. It’s pretty clear that he’s not one of those attacking fullbacks. It’s interesting that Newcastle wants to sign him. It’s not like he has any special defensive numbers or anything.

    Even Dennis wise scouting system seems to be malfunctioning. Only got these highlights from years ago for Emil Krafth.

    Its probably cheaper to buy this lad than a loan deal for N’soki, super business.

    Who’s leaving to make way?

    I think a right sided Dummet looks to be a good description of him.If you look at him on Youtube its all of him defending no overlapping runs and crosses into the box like Willems.We might use him if we play 4 at the back..Still a bit worried about the scouting report on him.””strengths none.Weaknesses passing,crossing and tackling.” Would definitely stick with Manquillo.

    So back up to one of our two FB’s and no doubt on less wages, go Newcastle, this is how the mighty Brewce is going to help move the club forward.

    OP,

    I’d give up if I were you.

    You don’t know what your a talking about.

    That’s why you are committing libel.

    And…

    I’m not bitter or spineless.

    I just enjoy seeing arrogant idiots get their comeuppance.
