Newcastle Win Race For Promising Youngster – Report


According to the Sun, Newcastle have won the race to sign Queens Park youngster Reagan Thomson.

They report that an agreement has been reached for the 16-year-old between Newcastle and the Scottish League Two club. They have beaten Steven Gerrard’s Rangers to land the very promising Scotland U17 international.

Just last week, it was reported that both Newcastle and Rangers had bids rejected for the young midfielder. According to the Sun, Newcastle’s initial bid of £35k has been increased and accepted.

Queens Park is an amateur club and are due to turn professional. They had hoped to be able to hold on to Thomson. But it appears that Newcastle will land the midfielder for a moderate compensation fee.

This is excellent news as Thomson will join some other young midfielders with promising futures like Joe White and Lee Clark’s son Bobby.

Despite turning 16 just this past August, Thomson has made 9 appearances for Queens Park this season. Hopefully, he is the first in a procession of youngsters to join Newcastle as we begin to improve our Academy.

    Hopefully he comes good as we struggle to develop any players.

    JP… yup.

    And (reposted)

    Assuming NUFC’s interest in Bowen has been genuine, he’ll be another who’ll end up elsewhere.

    Leicester City, a club that surprisingly broke the ‘big club’s cartel, won the Prem and now sitting second, are a perfect example of what can be achieved without the massive ‘state sponsored’ finances cited by Ashley as what’s needed to aim for the top.

    What have LCFC got that we haven’t got? An owner who like his father who hasn’t spent zilllions but has instilled well-being as part of the club’s culture, related to the fans, invested in the community, appointed a good manager – created a ‘family’.

    its a blog i’m entitled to my opinion, if you don’t like it don’t read it.

    as told you the other day that i’ve been to the last 2 now its its 3 games i was at Burnley it’s now 2 away 1 at homea 70th birthday party.
    i also told you i hadn’t shut the door on the club i still have a ticket i just choose not to use it, i also claimed the free one which no one will ever use,

    It really is sad to see what a nasty bitter human being you’ve turned into,

    Lesh
    a little knowledge is a dangerous thing
    as you consistently demonstrate
    Leicester city’s recent purchases
    James Maddison £25M
    Ricardo Pereira £20M
    Caglar Soyuncu £20M
    Youri Tielemans £45M
    Ayoze Perez £30M
    Dennis Praet £20M
    plus 5 more at £12 M average

    plus King Powers average annual revenue at £2.5Billion
    is more than SD’s worth

    Lesh- I couldn’t agree more. It makes me wanna cry and makes me angry at the thought that we have a selfish owner that does not care one bit about the club and it’s all about the accounts looking healthy. A real oblivious twat that had he had any sort of ambition we would surely be top 10 and pushing to reach euro spots. The signing of Saint-Maximin is a belated step in the right direction, but for one step forward this club does we always make 5 steps back. The waste of a hefty £40m on Joelinton when it could have been used on a more prolific forward is proof of this. Duvan Zapata a player we were linked with recently would have been a much better choice just to give one example.

    Hope springs eternal as always and if we survive this season we should go for quality where it’s needed and pay the going rate. Enough with penny pinching and stupid signings with resale value in mind!

    I really want us to go for Jarrod Bowen this January. He’s there for the taking and ticks all the right boxes. Ashley over to you.

    Tut tut Jib,

    As you’re well aware I’m sure – those buys were funded by the sale of Maguire to Manure 80 milion and Mahrez to City for 61 million – nothing to do wih King Powers turnover

    Leicester City’s owner’s long-term aspirations are evident in the £100 million investment in a new 180 acre training ground at Park Hill Golf Club, Seagrave, between Loughborough and Melton.
    How Leicester’s new training ground will look

    Work began on that earlier this year. It will feature a training centre, 14 pitches, including an indoor facility, and a nine-hole golf course.

    A well run club – something we aren’t

    Correct
    Ashley is totally the wrong type to own a footy club
    We all know that
    but folk like lesh et al , constantly harping on about it
    gets very tedious.
    I’d hate to sit next to lesh on the Metro

    this will be the 5th window now ive said we should be buying bowen. although he was usually behind other players in my pecking order. but its now far too late to buy those other players so we should buy this guy. even if its 60m he represents great value compared to joelinton.

    It’s highly unlikely anyone’s sit next to you on the metro!

    And rather than trying to justify Ashley you chose to ignore LCFC’s player sales? Ah, but if you did paint the fuller picture, you wouldn’t get the kick-back and the attention you’re constantly seeking.

    Perhaps you’d like to tell us what’s praiseworthy about Ashley and his ownership of NUFC?

    And, I do take comfort from the fact that I’m one of many thousands who are pished of with Ashley’s antics.

    BBC:

    Arsenal are in talks with Manchester City over the availability of coach Mikel Arteta.

    It is not known whether Arteta, 37, has been offered the chance to succeed Unai Emery, who was sacked in November.

    But Gunners chief executive Vinai Venkatesham is thought to have met the Spaniard in the north-west of England after both flew north following City’s 3-0 win at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

    Bruce was so happy with Ashley’s player recruitement but his minions are complaining of player quality. It’s so sad that Bruce couldn’t inculcate loyalty among his admirers even with such a seller contribution.

    it was said in the summer bruce turned down bowen. if its true he can have no complaints. and he said the signings were the best of his career despite every single person with access to youtube saying they wouldnt score goals. to be honest you probably could have predicted that just from a two minute read of wikipedia.

    my choice my money if they want a ticket they should buy one like i have to,

    the stupid thing about this whole free ticket fiasco the tickets should never been offered to season ticket holders they should have been distributed through the foundation and the food bank. and given to folk the genuinely could not afford one and not folk who can, but chose not to.

    also how stupid is it on behalf of the club to offer free tickets to season tickets holders who have not attended one game on that ticked this season, it was never the clubs intention to give tickets to the needy or underprivileged, it’s a marketing ploy aimed at attracting more folk with money to games Ashley earns nowt from folk who have nowt, he’s fishing for new season ticket holders with money

    and before you all kick off about just giving then away have you read the T&C

    it’s marketing ploy just the club trying to attract new season holders with money, that’s why the food bank and the foundation never got them no chance of a return on Ashleys investment
