Campbell, 35 has being heavily linked with Newcastle in the past week.The newly married has being rumoured to have signed for the Toon, yet I can believe there is much truth in that yet. After The Carslie match, Chris Houghton was interviewed about Sol, and certainly didn’t deny any speculation surrounding him and Newcastle Utd. The veteran has a mass of experience and would be a great defensive coach and role model for our young [...]
Newcastle United have being rumoured to be interested in re-signing Patrick Van Aanholt, Newcastle United. Chelsea’s teenage left-back Patrick Van Aanholt, on a permanent deal. Patrick really impressed during his short spell at Newcastle last season. He was solid and was a fantastic cover for Enrique while he was injured. The 19-year old Dutch under-21 player was extremely professional and mature for his age while on the Tyne. I really rate this young left back [...]
Chris was interviewed today, and dismissed the links about Andrei Cristea and Yannick Djalo. “Those names are not even close” Houghton replied when asked about the pair. Im a glad to see we are not after Andrei Cristea. He does’nt do it for me. I think the standard he is currently playing for Dinamo Bucharest is not close to the Premier league’s. Chris is very wise with his transfer budget and will not take a [...]
Transfers rumours are in full swing for the past two weeks, where we’ve being linked to over 100 players. One player that seems to have some truth behind the rumour is Djalo. The 24 year-old is playing his football at sporting as a forward. He was brought up through the world famous Sporting youth system. So we know what were getting! Here is a quick YouTube video, which shows he has fantastic technique: Unfortunately, like [...]
After just reporting about the rumours of Dan Gosling deciding his future, there is news just in that he has signed a four year deal with Newcastle. Chris has done a fantastic job in convincing this player to sign for the toon. A wonderful coup! As in my previous blog I pondered if Houghton had the transfer know-how to convince a young player like this to pledge his future to his team. Well he does! [...]
20 year-old Dan Gosling has been gaining a lot of media interest for the past week after Everton’s colossal failure to wrap him up to the club for the near future. Gosling is exactly the type of player that fits into our new youth system. Pushing through young talent to the first team. In my opinion this is Houghton’s first real transfer challenge. I believe every Newcastle fan would love to see a player of [...]
Our first summer signing really came as a surprise. James Perch from Nottingham Forest has signed a four-year deal at St James. Rumoured to be a 1.5m transfer, yet to be confirmed. The 25 year old, can play anywhere across the back four and the midfield. Very much a utility player. Perch has racked up 200 caps for Nottingham Forest, scoring in total 12 goals. Perch is a typical versatile player that Chris loves. “James [...]
Substitutes: S.Taylor R.Taylor Perch Smith Guthrie Lovenkrands Vuckic Overall, we have a strong squad. Our subs bench has alot of Prem expierience and some solid players. In regards of squad strength we can certainly compete with the likes of West Brom, Wigan, Wolves, West Ham, Stoke, Bolton, Blackpool and Blackburn. This squad might really suprize us this year and sneak a top ten finish… touch wood.
In the past 10 years Newcastle has changed immensely, arguably for the better. The days of big profile stars arriving at the pearly gates of St James’ Park are long gone… Too right! Although we suffered from the relegation last year and many terrible seasons before that, we can now see some hope and direction in our club. Albeit I am and Fat Ashley hater, I have to give him some credit for the financial [...]
5. Titus Bramble Signed in 2002 for six million pound from Ipswich. Robson saw him as a very promising looking player at Ipswich, but that all changed when he arrived at Newcastle united. Even with his trademark sliced clearances and own goals he still racked up over 100 premier League appearances. During his time at Newcastle he was the butt of every bad defending joke in the league. 4. Albert Luque One of many Souness [...]
