Seems like the players we're getting linked with (Williams, Rojo, Chowdary) aren't what we need...
That's the issue with the loan market, full of rejects that aren't getting a look in elsewhere. Willems would be a good signing, but the last thing we need would be another Rose/Bentaleb.
I suppose the difference this jan is that the euros are this summer, so in theory there may be some better players not getting first team football at their club looking for a loan move to help their chances of getting a place in their national squad this summer. Tho actually, that was the case last Jan too as the euros were due to take place <laugh>

That was the case last January as well when we ended up with Rose <roll>

Just seen the last bit of your post <laugh>

There will be players out there to be fair, Lazaro was a good signing last January although Bruce didn't know what to do with him. We need players that will improve us though, we have more than enough squad players.

Why are we never linked to skilled central midfielders?! Why do I feel like I have to pine for one every week?

To be honest I'd throw in a loan offer for Eriksen, yes he's unrealistic but we can guarantee games every week, the worst he can say is no.

Isn't Messi out of contract this summer too? Might as well

I'd probably take Ronaldo atm and he hasn't played in 11 years.

Also, does anyone else think he's looking like Craig Charles/Dave Lister these days?

Agreed. If I recall currectly, some of the clubs linked with loaning him aren't completely unrealistic from ourselves.

Think he's been linked to Arsenal, PSG, Man United and probably a lazy link back to Spurs <laugh> Although I do admit the Messi jibe, likely tongue firmly in cheek, was pushing it a bit haha.

PSG with Poch would make sense. He’s on £120k a week so we won’t be remotely interested in him. Wolves and West Ham would pay those wages.

The Messi jibe was of course tongue in cheek but the point is they're both total non starters, 0% likelihood. We've not been linked to Eriksen. Mike won't pay his wages and I can guarantee you to high hell this bloke doesn't want to join Newcastle United. This isn't Football Manager. This is real life. On the impossible chance that we were his 'best' available option (and why the f*** would we be), he'd probably rather rot in the Inter Reserves than chase the ball around for 90 minutes under Steve Bruce.

Hes gone about 2 seasons without any real playing time, I'd say he would be pretty open to an offer of some guaranteed games on the eve of a major tournament

He only went to Inter a year ago didn't he? According to transfermarkt, he played a combination of 37 league games last year in prem/Seria A. (20/17 respectively). This year year only featured in 9 league games. I can see why it's likely he would need seek a move, can't possibly fathom why he'd come here though. He'd be a great signing for us, there's no doubt about it. But even if there wasn't better clubs in for him - which there is - our regime would not put the kind of finances in to fund this kind of move, even if it was a loan.

PSG are heavily linked due to Poch.

True, but I think they were linked before that anyway. Regardless, whilst it would be a fantastic signing for us, it's hardly a realistic one. There would be maybe a dozen clubs more likely to sign him than us across the leagues.

Ah, looked it up and it was an article that suggested Wolves and Ajax. Which were slightly less crazy than the others mentioned - not that I ever thought we had a chance anyway.

Eriksen will probably go to PSG. Doubt he goes to Arsenal or Man United though.

That's fair, I never saw Wolves. Ajax is the club he came from to Spurs. Maybe lazy, maybe no. That being said, both have better pulling power tan us haha. Wolves for the pennies, Ajax for the history (in terms of former player etc)
