He could stay with us for a year, move to Liverpool and then win the Champions League <whistle>
You joke, but that's probably not far off the model we sell to players <laugh> Gini paving the way for future superstars.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

Linked with Donny Van De Beek, looks a quality player, unfortunately been liked with much better and much more organised club than us. We've apparently had scouts watching him a few times through the season. Along with half the premier league. There will be better clubs looking at him, but not nece...

If we were interested he'll now cost more.
Told you he's waiting for Stoke to get promoted.
I thought that was Mbappe?

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

Can't see a deal for J Lukaku happening again, not after it falling at the final hurdle. His replacement hardly kicked a ball. We definitely need to stregthen in that position, but feel we should definitely look elsewhere. As for Lascelles, he had a bit of a difficult time last year, not to his usua...

For the third week in a row, should we get excited (and ultimately disappointed) for a friday announcement? <diva>

Re: The Managerial Merry-Go-Round Thread

Yeah, solid appointment. I thought Houghton may have had a good chance at that, but Billic should give them a good shot at promotion.

Re: Newcastle 2019-20 Fixtures

Man U away and Sheffield Utd away will both be shown on Amazon Prime. I'm pretty excited to see how this works with Amazon and if they can wrestle it away from Sky and BT (and maybe Netflix can get in on the act). This whole 'no televises games on Saturday's at 3pm' is outdated. There should be an ...

Re: Ashley Agrees to Sell Newcastle for £350m!

2 days and no posts here. Are we assuming it's dead now? Also, made you look t*** <urgh> Can't speak for anyone else, but I'm remaining hopelessly optimistic. No news doesn't mean it's dead and buried. Although the closer Rafa's contract get's to being gone, the more worried I get. This kind of pro...

Re: Iron Mike lands managment role!

Wasn't there a decent backing for Williamson to play for England at one point? From our fans, obviously. There's always going to be massive bias to want our homegrown players to represent the home nations, Longstaff the latest - although so far he seems to posses a decent amount of talent. My point ...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

Seeing reports that we made an offer to Rondon but he turned it down, apparently wages not good enough, and he's more likely go to Turkey. Doesn't seem to be coming from any kind of credible or reliable source. With any luck it's made up.

Re: Ashley Agrees to Sell Newcastle for £350m!

My reaction was more with wanting Rafa to stay. I'm not a big fan of Mourinho, but he's clearly a top class manager. We could certainly do a hell of a lot worse. I'd like Lampard personally, still early in his career though. With a takeover, Mourinho could happen, has a bit of a connection to the cl...

Jose in the press today with a rumour that he'd be seriously interested in managing Newcastle if the new owner comes in.
Saw that. He can **** off. I can't see any reason not to stick with Benitez, takeover or otherwise.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

Seeing some brief mentions that Arsenal will be 'entertaining' offers for Callum Chambers this summer. Would anyone else think he'd be a decent signing? We are quite well stocked at centre back, but he's fairly versatile. Came through at saints as a right fullback and I think he has played cdm a lot...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2019)

Good riddance for sure, but with Rondon's future uncertain, and Gayle seemingly surplus, that puts our striking options dangerously limited. I believe Mbappe put in a transfer request <whistle> Definitely dangerously limited, but Joselu wasn't going to change that Fair point <laugh> Takeover or not...
