Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Winter 15/16)

We need points now and giving them time to bed in is not a luxury we can afford. Both should go straight into the team. It's not like things can get much worse, we're 19th. I'd start with Shelvey but not sure about Saivet. At least Shelvey has experience of this league and the pace the games will b...

Newcastle still injury table reigning champions

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/35313650

Turns out, we're still rubbish for injuries, with our players having missed 1042 days through injury. This seems to have been a problem for quite a few seasons now, but thought it might improve when Schteve brought his own team in.

Re: Telegraph: Players and staff involved in angry training

It wouldn't surprise me - often feel a lot of our "senior" players don't care that much about the club. A lot of them, such as Colo and Sissoko, look like they are just going through the motions during most matches. Having said that, I find it odd that it is always Luke Edwards who gets these "exclu...

Re: Are you happy with the club's transfer business?

To be honest I'm happy to give Colo, Haidara and Cisse until January. Colo already looks four times the player he was last season and this is the first time Haidara has had a proper run in the first team so I'm willing to give him a chance. The strike force I'm happy with. I would rather have someo...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 15/16)

I wouldn't get shot of Riv , that would leave us with Cisse , Mitro and Perez up top. A tad short if we have some injuries and I don't think we are going to sign any more forwards this window. But we definitely need some more defensive cover. Wholeheartedly agree we'd be short up front but feel lik...

Re: No more signings expected

I know he has injury issues but we have Taylor at 2nd/3rd choice. I'm far more concerned about left back. s*** I forgot about Taylor. But then we're only able to play him until October ish when he gets an injury that rules him out for the rest of the season. Obviously, no-one wants to see Williamso...

Re: Newcastle Utd 2 - 2 Southampton – 09/08/15

Didn't see the last 25 min but for what I inferred Colback offers little when we are dominating the game. He doesn't have that eye for the killer pass and every time he had the ball beside sometimes linking up with Sissoko always played it backwards. I'd say ideally we'd have Anita and Abeid(if he ...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 15/16)

The message has gone from statements of intent to not ruling out other transfers. Sorry but that looks worryingly like Steve has had the word that the bulk of our business is over and he's managing expectations now. I'm not going to panic, I think we've done great business this summer, but that's t...

I'd much prefer Berahino to Austin but it won't happen.
I don't know why but I'm really unsure about Berahino - isn't he supposed to have a really bad attitude or something?

Then again, he's younger than Austin and he can play out wide.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 15/16)

We've signed 3 quality players when we needed at least 6. We still need a decent winger, another CB and a better LB than Haidara, who would be a great 2nd choice LB. Dummett is a handy utility player to cover LB or CB when we're on the bones of our arses but he shouldn't be so close to the first te...

Re: Ivan Toney Inbound

Honestly couldn't care less about this transfer. I've not read anything about him to excite me. Seen as we've jest sent Armstrong on loan to Coventry I'm not exactly sure what this lad gives us. Essentially it's small change I guess. Yep, we should only have one decent young striker at the club...!
