Newcastle Unlikely To Meet Club’s Demands For Long-Term Target



With safety confirmed, the links to summer signings are likely to now increase. Fans can expect a very exciting summer though it may become overwhelming with the number and level of some of the targets.

There have been murmurings that Newcastle are trying to tempt Juventus striker Paolo Dybala, who is out of contract this summer. That seems very unlikely as we’ve already been priced out of a move for Jesse Lingard due to his wage demands.

Now The Mail is reporting that we could rival Manchester United for Napoli’s Victor Osimhen. The catch is he would cost north of £85m as Napoli paid £67m for him two years ago.

The 23-year-old has not done any damage to his reputation over the past two seasons with 27 goals and 9 assists over that span. He was initially linked with Newcastle in 2019 after joining Lille that summer.

His performances that season in France earned him his big move to Napoli. He is now one of the most coveted strikers in Europe with a price tag to match. Newcastle just aren’t in a position to pay that amount of money for one player.

The build will be a slow but exciting one. Newcastle reportedly are looking to add four to six players this summer. A striker is definitely on the agenda but I would be pleasantly surprised if a player like Osimhen, Dybala, or Benfica’s Darwin Nunez come through the door.

    Happy half century when it arrives, and welcome to the world of grown-ups.

    However, it’s an optional membership, you can still talk nonsense on here regardless of your age.

    Just look at Zorro, he’s the youngest on here and talks tripe all the time.

    Eddie Howe also suggested that Sean Longstaff was ‘very close’ to agreeing a new deal. #nufc

    Eddie Howe on Jonjo Shelvey:

    “Jonjo has quite a serious calf injury, which is similar to the one he sustained at the start of the season. He’ll be out for a period of time but we expect him back for pre-season with no problems.”

    Eddie Howe on Joe Willock:

    “Joe has had an issue with a tendon in his knee for a while. We thought we’d solved the problem but it’s come back. He needs a period of rest, he’s had a couple of injections, but we anticipate he’ll be fine for pre-season.”

    Clint from previous

    That would be a fantastic way to finish the season. Still find it hard to believe sometimes, looking back, how well we’ve done. Even if we don’t get another point it’s just great to have such positivity for next season.
    Richest club to be relegated. I think not. 🙂

    I know mate, amazing really!
    We, as fans, must remember this, where we’ve been, where we’ve come from, what we’ve been thru!
    It’s important to keep some perspective and humbleness.

    Manc fans still have some, even after becoming parenial winners.

    What I hope to never hear from our fans that you regularly do @ ManC, Arsenal, Chelsea…

    The cry “C’mon City” or whoever. Think it’s massively disrespectful to their players who have brought them such a brilliant time in recent years.

    I love hearing our fans singing their support and songs, but we never say “C’mon” and I hope we never do.

    No worries I knew you meant me 🙂

    I don’t actually mind man city winning. They’re about the only other team I watch as I just love the way they play and I like pep as a manager. Plus they aren’t man u or Liverpool

    A man and his wife are awakened at 3:00 a.m. by a loud pounding on the door. The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.

    “Not a chance,” says the husband, “it is 3:00 in the morning!” He slams the door and returns to bed.

    “Who was that?” asked his wife.

    “Just some drunk guy asking for a push,” he answers.

    “Did you help him?” she asks.

    “No, I did not, it’s 3 a.m. in the morning and it’s pouring out there!”

    “Well, you have a short memory,” says his wife. “Can’t you remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him.”

    The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pounding rain. He calls out into the dark, “Hello, are you still there?”

    “Yes,” comes back the answer.

    “Do you still need a push?” calls out the husband.

    “Yes, please!” comes the reply from the dark.

    “Where are you?” asks the husband.

    “Over here on the swing,” replies the drunk

    Two young guys appear in court after being arrested for smoking dope.

    Two young guys appear in court after being arrested for smoking dope.

    The judge says, “You seem like nice young men, and I’d like to give you a second chance instead of jail time. I want you to go out this weekend and try to convince others of the evils of drug use. I’ll see you back in court Monday.”

    On Monday, the judge asks the first guy, “How did you do over the weekend?”

    “Well, your honor, I persuaded 17 people to give up drugs forever.”

    “Seventeen people? That’s wonderful. How did you do it? ”

    “I used a diagram, your honor. I drew two circles like this: O o.

    Then I told them that the big circle is your brain before drugs and the small circle is your brain after drugs.”

    “That’s admirable,” says the judge.

    Then he turns to the second guy. “And how did you do?”

    “Well, your honor, I persuaded 156 people to give up drugs forever.”

    “Wow!” says the judge.

    “156 people! How did you manage to do that?”

    “Well, I used a similar diagram,” the guy says.

    “I drew two circles like this: o O.

    Then I pointed to the little circle and said, ‘This is your asshole before prison… ‘”

    Eddie Howe on the summer:

    “FFP does impact what we can do in the summer but it doesn’t mean we’re totally without ambition. We’re well aware that we have to change the squad and we have to make improvements but it’s going to be a difficult balance.”
