Newcastle To Get Slight Financial Bump This Summer



With revenues down due to Newcastle missing out on gate receipts this season, the summer transfer budget is expected to be quite minuscule. So it’s going to be a difficult task to significantly improve this squad.

However, Newcastle are set to see a slight financial bump this summer. According to a report in The Chronicle all Premier League clubs will receive an estimated £4.8m from the league due to Norwich and Watford bouncing straight back to the Premier League.

Both Norwich and Watford have clinched promotion which saves the Premier League on parachute payments. Bournemouth have secured a playoff birth so the amount could go up even higher should the Cherries come back up as well.

It’s uncertain whether this money will go to the transfer budget but any extra cash will certainly help as it could be a lean transfer window on Tyneside.

Newcastle could take the route of last summer and hit the free-agent market. We brought in Ryan Fraser, Jeff Hendrick, and Mark Gillespie to add some depth to the squad.

Hopefully, Newcastle will be welcoming Jetro Willems back this summer. It’s almost certain he will be leaving Frankfurt when his contract expires. Willems has still not kicked a ball in a match since his knee injury last January.

While the 27-year-old has made the last 8 matchday squads and continues to train, he’s just not found a way into manager Adi Hutter’s plans. Willems turned down an extension this past January which could pave the way for a possible reunion on Tyneside.

    The thing is, what I said is fact.

    You have said a good few times you don’t think the PL is corrupt and you don’t think the top 6 had an influence.

    Considering the majority of the fanbase knows that they did, it says more about you than it does about me.

    Mund,
    I’ve also just admitted it looks like I was wrong about the rich six leaning on the PL, I still don’t believe that was the driving force behind the decision though and believe it had a lot more to do with beIN.

    I have never said the PL isn’t corrupt, there is blatant corruption running through world football, I’ve said VAR isn’t corrupt regarding bad decisions when people moan about decisions given against us. Unless you have the blokes in Stockley park taking bungs, that is a completely different can of worms though.

    Just saying you think differently than the majority of the fanbase.

    Isn’t this this something you go on at Munster for regarding Rafa? Always saying the majority back what you say? 😉

    Does the majority only matter when it suits yourself? Well ofc it does

    I think what’s transpired since the Saudis walked has only cemented that assumption even more.

    Even other fanbases and journos are catching on to something this fanbase has cried for months and months

    I don’t need to find a post as you never back up the things you say, so why would I? Why would I lie about such things? You did say it in the early days when the fanbase was taking to the fight against the PL you said it to me

    Mund,
    Not sure what that has got to do with anything, as I say I still believe beIN had more to do with it, let’s see what this arbitration brings out.

    Just caught up after 9 holes, 3 pars, 4 bogies and 2 disasters and 3 powerfully hopped IPAs.

    Highlight was a lovely drawn tee-shot drive on a par 4 hole that demands it, leaving 140 yards into to centre of the green, 10 ft putt stopped 2 inches from the hole. I am the Joelinton of the golf course. 🙁

    Good to see the cultural theme being continued today, this time with captainmarvel and his Shakespearean reference to “much to do about nothing” although more correctly Much Ado About Nothing.

    None the less, in the absence of any other high brow challenge, the prize for cultural input today goes to captainmarvel, even though he wears his underpants on the outside.

    Mund…they sure have we have been saying it since all this started now there starting to believe it because it’s affecting them.
    If with wasn’t for Hoffman and the sleazy 6 we would definitely have new owners now imo.
    But I think we will soon anyway Nicky D will sort this lot out

    Whilst I agree that Hoffman and masters are at fault and corrupt in their dealings over this it has not been proved and therefore isn’t a fact
    It is only opinion, admittedly of a fair number of our fanbase, but only an opinion until proven to be a fact

    Ledge

    The fact they have had the audacity to try and push Project big picture through and then sign up to this super league says everything about who these people are and all the whispers floating around about how and what they did to influence proceedings with the takeover can be totally believed now.

    It’s clear as day there is an influence and has been for many years going back to the 90s but has only got worse since this billionaires entered the fray.

    Tbh they are all like Ashley in a sense as they see it all as a business not a football club

    VAR itself is a good thing , the rules or interpretation is a bad thing
    In a week where we got a very unexpected point it’s weird to see everyone arguing about jack shit .

    Wor B, never managed to get into golf despite having many friends who play it – think it was down to a colleague saying he was an athlete because he played it….

    A bad start can make you lose interest mind, there’s a few who haven’t made a transfer for a good while.
