Monday’s News Roundup For The Newcastle United Blog



On Monday, we found out the price for Dutch starlet Myron Boadu, heard from Floyd Mayweather about Newcastle United, and got the confirmation for our FA Cup final date, amongst other news.

Here is the roundup of today’s articles and news from The Newcastle United Blog.

  • Our first article shares stats showing Jonjo Shelvey’s importance to the squad. It also reveals some details from the new contract he signed on Friday.
  • Newcastle were linked with AZ Alkmaar’s exciting young striker Myron Boadu in late February. A new report came out claiming that the Eredivisie club have set the bidding at £18m for the 19-year-old.
  • On Sunday, the Sun claimed that Steve Bruce was keen on bringing Middlesbrough’s Hayden Coulsten this summer for £10m. However, there were developments on Monday that Middlesbrough would knock back any attempts from Newcastle for the Gateshead born lad.

  • Despite rising interest in budding superstar Allan Saint-Maximin, Newcastle remain confident that they’ll be able to retain the Frenchman this summer.
  • We give our views on Newcastle’s current placement in the league as well our first FA Cup quarter-final since 2006.
  • Our take on the surprise comments from boxer Floyd Mayweather where he teases interest in buying Newcastle United.
  • Newcastle’s FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester City has been confirmed for the 21st of March and will postpone two of our Premier League fixtures.

    No but I met little Steven at the Tyne Bar last summer. He’s a hell of a character.

    I remember when Dylan was due to play at SJP and I asked a pal of mine, who had played on the stateside bills as the man at various US folk the late 60s folk-revival, whether he was going to see him.

    The reply: ‘Nah, he’s got me number, he naas where a live!’

    True and modesty was never one of his strengths.

    …who had played on some of the same stateside bills as the man at various US folk festivals during the late 60s folk-revival……

    OLG,

    It wasn’t that one (and maybe I’m even mistaken saying it was the same girls)

    I can’t remember the official name of the song. But I remember the chorus catchline was – gis a ring will yer pet.

    I’m sure someone can find it with that catchline

    Not my lot.

    My youngest Daughter makes the hairs stand up on my arms and back of me neck ! Can bring you to near tears when she sings and plays Guitar and fiddle .

    Many artists stand up the hairs on yer
    Arms but she gets them up on back
    of me neck .when she sings .its freaky and I have no control over it ..started to think I’m wired up different.
    It’s uncanny .

    The Blog’s live, dynamic and those that rock up in the morning can kick start their new day in their own way. If you look at the time line around midnight, there was very little going on. Maybe that’s a product of all the infighting of late?
