Re: The Managerial Merry-Go-Round Thread

Good write up on the Athletic comparing the succession plans put in place in German club football to the seeming dartboard-esque decision making at English clubs. I enjoyed it, anyway. It's well worth a quid for the subscription, some good stuff on there. https://theathletic.com/2644468/2021/06/11/b...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

Been linked with Weghorst, a gigantic centre forward from Wolfsburg. Would be a like for like replacement for Carroll. I think we've been linked with Weghorst before, maybe last summer or possibly the January before that. I think perhaps the latter. I remember looking him up and seeing his pretty i...

Since we are all sharing, I was wearing a Newcastle shirt in a bar in Poland when a bunch of Swedish holiday makers came over and starting singing the colocinni song <laugh>

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

Yeah I looked into that after the mention, couldn't see much of it. Been linked to norwich as well as us, but Leverkusen seems like the most likely. Seems a decent enough player, but I'm not sure why we are constantly linked to centrebacks. It's by far not our weakest area. Seems almost certain that...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

Eduard close to joining Leicester for 15m, apparently. Dirt cheap. Good move for Leicester, Vardy is still a good player but clearly past his peak now so gives them more depth upfront. No point us even enquiring as Leicester are light-years ahead of us on and off the pitch. Only a complete moron wo...

Has the knock on effect of making Willock look even less likely that it already was.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

Didn't score for Bmouth in the champo last season or any in the league for Everton. Admittedly his pitch time was probably limited. I think there's probably better avaliable. I'll still take him, he's better than Gayle & different sort of player to Jolienten as he likes running in behind using his ...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

If that's true it's not exactly surprising. Same thing happened with Remy and QPR. I think we do drag our feet too much with transfers at times, but a player with no subjective ties to the club will obviously pick whatever the better offer is.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

been linked with Matheus Nunes, anyone know if he's any good Not sure why a blog like geordie boot boys would identify him as a winger, when everything else I've read and reviewed reports he's a central and defensive midfielder. 22 year old Brazilian at Sporting that we allegedly tried to loan with...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

Don't the domestic league rules restrict loans to only one from a club in the same league? I'd like to see Gallagher if anyone. Abraham has looked good in spells but I think they want to sell him ideally, not sure if anyone would pay 40m though Yeah I think so.. if it comes down to that I'll just t...

Re: The Managerial Merry-Go-Round Thread

I reckon Everton will poach Nuno, who is supposedly in talks with Crystal Palace, leaving them with a decision to make after losing out on several of their top targets. In my woefully optimistic fantasy, Palace will play the unwitting saviours once again, and pay to take Bruce away <whistle>

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

That's a very in-depth response, love it! Obviously Willock would be first choice, the point was potential alternatives as he's looking increasingly out of reach. His stats are slightly skewed as well due to his shorter playing time, and high impact in that time. If you took Cisse's first six months...
