After the abandoned Fiorentina game last weekend, Alan Pardew and co. have begun their plans for the inevitable summer deadline bidding frenzy. Having secured the signing of Gabriel Obertan from Manchester United yesterday, NUFC’s summer recruitment drive has started to pick up pace again, having slowed of late. With all the doom and gloom surrounding the club recently, things are in danger of looking up – at least on the transfer front. A handful of targets have [...]

Negative Press Once Again Surrounds St.James’ Park Monday 1st August 2011 was meant to signal one month left on the calendar for Alan Pardew to bolster an NUFC squad. After losing to Leeds United at Elland Road on Sunday (31st July), most of the Toon Army presumed the spending would commence, even if it was at a bare minimum. Instead, signs of another rock falling from our unsteady cliff hit the footballing world at 3pm, with Newcastle United [...]
‘Le Toon’ are set to fly home from their American adventure on Wednesday 27th July and return to complete their pre-season schedule with friendly games against Leeds United and Fiorentina. Also, with just over a month until the end of the transfer window, the hope is that Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew will be closing in on one or two new signings to add to the current crop of players *cough* centre forward *cough*. With a [...]
One Draw, One Defeat, Two Injuries and an eye opening experience for Mr Pardew and his Newcastle squad ahead of a tough opening season as temperatures sore here in the US, one must wonder does Jose Enrique’s ego rise in tandem with the American Summer temperatures? Jose Enrique‘s recent statements lambasting the clubs transfer policy are both concrete and worthy in the light of both Kevin Nolan’s and Andy Carroll’s departures but only aids fan [...]
As Newcastle United’s US Tour comes to a close tomorrow when the Toon take on MLS title chasers Columbus Crew, NUFC fans are hoping for some activity in the transfer market, but following recent events, it looks as if the activity may involve player(s) leaving the club rather than bringing in reinforcements. Jose Enrique in Twittergate #2 Manager Alan Pardew, when asked about Newcastle’s wantaway full back Jose Enrique told The Journal: As a manager, of [...]
Despite the NUFC transfer shopping cart slowing to a crawl, and with transfer rumours in and out of the club decreasing over the last week, I still feel NUFC are moving in the right direction this Summer. The Darlington game must be mentioned, despite the embarrassment caused ‘on the pitch’ by the fans. The performance on the pitch by the players on the other hand was impressive. A weakened side featuring a few new faces [...]
With Charles N’Zogbia in such high demand this summer transfer window, and with his club seemingly happy to let him go at the right price, could a return to Tyneside for Charles be possible? Clubs such as Aston Villa, Everton, Sunderland and of course Newcastle United, are all reportedly interested in buying the 25 year old this summer but will any of these clubs stump up Dave Whelan’s rather large asking price? Wigan are said [...]

Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them. Dion Boucicault My kinsman Dion Boucicault word’s could be unfortunately accurate in relation to the Magpies summer so far. July has come upon us and progress is such a common term at this stage of a club’s Summer. Players leave, more arrive and the financial powerhouses of Manchester United, Man City and Liverpool delve deeper and deeper into pools of borrowed cash in search of [...]
