Newcastle United transfer lies


Recommended Posts

Would be a typical Ashley/Bruce, signing that has done fuck all for a few years, but is available on the cheap. Sign a player that another lower table club don't want, whilst the likes of Villa and Leeds (very recently promoted), start to leave us miles behind. He's not worth a punt if you want to be even half ambitious, to which we don't of course. Boy, I'm so pleased that I have finally drawn the line and won't watch a minute of any football from NUFC whilst those two are at the helm.

I know the answer, of course I do, but seriously, where is the money? Like, we're technically a Premier League club but acting like we don't have a pot to piss in. I'm not expecting the second coming of Manchester City but surely, in 2021, signing players in double digit millions isn't the most outrageous thing to expect (delusional Geordies). These are basic, fundamental running costs of a modern club in the richest football league in the world - not title winning ambition, not squad overhauls, just doing the essentials. Surely even treading water must cost a couple of quid. 

 

Is the club sitting on a huge cash reserve? Clever accountancy? Even if Mike Ashley openly stated he's paying himself a million pounds a week you'd have to half admire his honesty and begrudgingly accept that's where the money is. But no. It's just a stubborn refusal. It's negligence, it's not being thrifty, it's not Daniel Levy levels of brinkmanship. The club isn't hemorrhaging money, it's not doing a Leeds (in the classic sense, chance would be a fine thing), it hasn't taken out a loan with the Bank of chuffing England nor has it built a 100,000 faded seat stadium in the middle of some retail park broadly speaking within the NE postcode. It's absolute madness. It's so ironic that the Premier league must hate us not because we're going to spend our way to every title from now until domesday but because we're deliberately stinking out their league by not even trying. In loads of other sports you'd be chucked out or disqualified for deliberately not trying or not showing effort. 

 

But aye, fit and proper person.

Willock on loan

Willems

Ben Arfa

Rondon

 

You could get those 4 for very little outlay and we know that they improve the squad. (working with the budget here, get that they wouldn't be the most satisfying window ever) 

 

Let Ritchie move back to Bournemouth to put a million into the pot and look for a few quid on Darlow to get another centre mid. 

 

 But we have Bruce so Hendrick it is

Lemina is shite, let's stop pretending. Willock is the only Midfielder we need to focus on. Worry about dreg signings after. 

 

If anything we need fullbacks, the only club who have converted 2 wingers into fullbacks because were too fucking tight to go out and buy actual good fullbacks.

Willock and a replacement for Shelvey. We need to bin that bald layabout as well.

A few of us thought Lewis was an actual good full back, even more suited to wingback actually. Not turned out too well so far, but we did spent a fair amount for us on him.

So.. 

 

- Lemina turns us down for Nice

- Cameron Vickers turns us down for Celtic.

- Ajer goes to Bournemouth 

- We wont spend on willock and Arsenal will wait until the window closes. 

- We wont spend on random swedish players. 

 

Summer is going well as normal. 

 

Did see us linked to Barkley again. He has more sense though.
