Frustration Is Reaching A Boiling Point As Local Defender Enters Into The Discussion



News emerged late last night that Newcastle have made an ambitious move to sign Lyon’s Bruno Guimaraes. The 24-year-old is a world-class midfielder who has been tracked by Arsenal and Juventus.

There are claims that Arsenal may reignite talks with the player, possibly to convince him to wait until the summer. Guimaraes himself has revealed that The Gunners did reach out to his representatives earlier in the month but have yet to open talks with Lyon.

Newcastle saw an opening and made their move offering £34m. The player will stand to quadruple his wages should he agree to the move and Lyon accept the offer. This seems the only ray of sunshine in an otherwise cloudy transfer sky.

The hunt for Diego Carlos and Jesse Lingard have come up empty-handed. Sevilla don’t want to sell their star defender midseason while Manchester United’s stance is murkier.

There seems to be little justification in keeping Lingard behind when he doesn’t fit into Ralf Rangnick’s plan. They have foregone a substantial loan fee to have a quality player rot on the bench. It’s reeks of animosity against either Newcastle or the player himself.

Newcastle need to soldier on and land other targets. Frustration is beginning to reach a climax at the club. Luke Edwards tweeted the following earlier this morning.

It may be best to not get one’s hopes up over Guimaraes. That is going to be a very difficult transfer to pull off due to Newcastle’s poor league position. There should be an update on the player’s and Lyon’s stance soon.

One player that Newcastle could land is Dan Burn of Brighton. He reportedly has entered the conversation. The Mail and journalist Pete O’Rourke are claiming that the 29-year-old has been discussed.

The Blyth-born Burn spent time at Newcastle United as a youngster. He’s been a bit of a journeyman but landed in Brighton from Wigan in 2018 and has proven an adequate Premier League player who can also do a job on the left.

    Are people really saying we would have got a penalty such as Jota’s at the weekend thru VAR. This season has been a joke, bordering on corruption. Definitely seems an agenda against The Toon.

    the crown princes nashers – The Super League was only discussed between senior officials in the top 6 clubs of the PL, just as they’ll often be discussing options like that. From recollection, Man City an Chelsea (I could be wrong that it was those two) didn’t really want to do it but went along with it because they didn’t want to miss out if it worked, plus their managers seem to have had no idea about it. Then it all fell to shit. So that’s not a great example of how the top 6 conspire to do something…

    Players don’t get picked for England playing here because Mike Ashley stopped buying or producing players good enough for England.

    I could be totally wrong, but would the player have a medical before agreeing personal terms? Seems like it would be the other way around, otherwise the medical is a waste of time and money if they don’t agree personal terms.

    Just a fan – I think some people don’t realise how hard it is to genuinely conspire to do something without it becoming public knowledge. Just one weak link or one person who seriously disagrees and it all breaks down.

    I think the point is fans feel as if referees and clubs are against us specifically. I think most people feel like there’s some bias from referees towards the bigger teams. But not that there’s a bias specifically out to screw us over.

    the crown princes nashers – you can’t use corruption from 40 years ago as an example of corruption now. The world was completely different back then! It’s so much harder to get away with things now.

    It’s ok to think differently but don’t shoot someone down because they believe in something you don’t.

    Nobody on here needs to prove anything to anyone or convince them of anything.

    There’s been corruption in this league since the 90s then it just got worse.

    Like I said you can be blind to it and say it doesn’t exist, show me the proof etc etc but if you can’t see that’s not anyone’s fault

    Mund – looks like that’s a false quote. I looked up the text and you can find some information here: https://thebearpittv.com/2016/09/mark-halsey-and-the-can-of-worms/

    The article does quote his autobiography including some pressure to claim he didn’t see something in order to apply retrospective action but nothing like that. Please read the article.

    As we reported last night. Lingard wanted to sign (#nufc) and felt he had blessing from Ragnick. Clubs couldn’t agree fee (one source told me full package could work out “nearly a million pounds a game”). Remains to be seen if they’re able to resurrect, but doesn’t look likely.

    the crown princes nashers – because corruption was so much easier and widespread 40 years ago. Now it’s so much harder to get away with due to multiple cameras at every game, the internet, regulations, camera phones, and massive analysis of virtually every game.

    I don’t see frustration hitting any kind of critical mass. Most of us fans are happy to see the new regime being proactive in the window. Jan market is a difficult one to work in. Seeing the new regime actually attempting to sign players is a joy in itself, rather than waiting for Lee Charnley to churn out a failed negotiation with another has been/never will be type player. Yes, we would love to see the team improved, however, when we look at what clubs are doing in negotiations, then it’s little wonder we are not closing the deals. Clubs expecting a premium over the odds purely because we have rich ownership is stupid. Look at whom they’re negotiating with, people with money who got it by being shrewd in business. In my experience with Middle Easterners I don’t think I’ve got a deal past one once. I’m just glad they don’t usually play poker over there, as they would already own my house and children.

    @GraemeBailey
    Newcastle in talks with Sassuolo over Rogerio transfer – a player the club have been following for a long time and even made a bid last summer.

    Eddie Howe clearly wants to bolster his left-back options and Rogerio could be the man to do that.
