We've agreed a fee with Ipswich for 6"3 striker Daryl Murphy. Exactly what we need, a bit of grit, championship experience and height up front, he can do a job for us to help get us promoted. And at last we're addressing the lack of wingers and pace in our squash with the Lazaar, Atsu and Yedlin signings.

Looks like our last bit of business will be Murphy, Atsu, Lazaar and possibly Alan Judge if that deal still goes ahead, then as long as it's only the likes of Sissoko and Riviere that leave and we keep Tiote, I think we're done.

Need to beat Brighton now to show we mean business about promotion.

Hope so BUT wishful thinking It seems these players aee waiting to see if any PL teams come in for them
We are are a championship team and that's starting to sink in.

I'm hearing haller and atsu will be the final 2 in, the haller deal could still fall through. Money seems to be the sticking point, and the judge deal doesn't look like it's going to happen.

Lots more talk about Sissoko going to Palace now. I think this will happen on deadline day. I have a couple of mates who are palace fans. They still think Pardew is great so Sissoko will be like Messi for them. No time to get replacements again. January might have to be a big window for us. If we are in the top two we might stand a chance of signing better players.

£7.5million fee agreed for Janmaat to go to Watford. At least he got his head down and played when asked to and didn't always mention wanting to play for Real Madrid unlike someone.

Been a good servant to the club, a bit sad to see him go as I do think he did care, but in terms of us moving forward as a club I don't think he's a massive loss.

Exactly.

Jamaat going to Watford. YES THAT'S WHAT I SAID WATFORD? what is the matter with these players NEWCASTLE OR WATFORD.? fair enough if it's Arsenal or Liverpool etc. etc. But Watford! The man is a baffoon.

Pluny we could have said the same about leicester a year ago. The fact is we are not even showing the ambition to get back up.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 23:06:28
Think it's been difficult Des 9 players and we are stll 3/ 4 quality players short I think Rafa has concentrated on numbers with a few quality players.

It's been hard as I understand he has told Ashley he will balance the books and I believe that is exactly what he has done so far.

A lot of players because of the damage Ashley has done
even with Rafa are reluctant to come to Newcastle.

We need points now so we depend on Rafa to bring in these pkayers but time is running out.

Lot of business still to be done, just hope we are part if it.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 02:40:17
Agree Vida. I am beginning to think it could be two seasons before we get back up. No doubt the squad is weaker. Ashley doesn't seem too bothered either way. The Sissoko situation is a farce and I expect a transfer request on deadline day.
A lot of the players look scared to me. I watched a great documentary on Bein Sports about the famous 4-3 liverpool game. We need players to be that brave. Not suggesting we go crazy but we need to get out of the traps early and impose ourselves on teams. Yedlin will at least give us pace. If Sissoko stays we should unleash him too.

Here is hoping we can get two more quality players in.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 10:31:23
Getting relegated meant that our squad was only ever going to get weaker. No way would we be able to replace the likes of wijnaldum with better quality players. Janmaat/ Townsend/ wijnaldum all left for premier league football which is fair enough. But I'm happy with the new signings so far who have replaced the deadwood, as they not only give us championship experience but also feature leadership qualities and fill our squad with players with better work ethic. We still need 2-3 signings though.

Agree2 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 22:20:52
Could have been 6 but 2 will do
Injuries nightmare, perhaps they will get a move on for a striker because injuries will continue and we do not have a fiull compliment.

24 Aug 2016 00:27:39
We were por tonight Lack lustre
Lancelles and one or 2 more OK but they need a rocket up their jacksy
We will struggle on Saturday with this sort of performance
best we will get is a draw!

Anyone starting to think Rafa has the biggest challenge of his career on his hands?

Agree1 Disagree1

24 Aug 2016 23:07:46
Yes he has for sure, it is a learning curve for him as well.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 22:19:32
Few injuries tonight. Let's hope they are nothing serious. Aaron's looked in some discomfort.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

23 Aug 2016 21:41:13
Job done tonight hopefully Perez can play like that in the championship.

Worried about the Gayle/ Mitro injuries hopefully Gayle at least will be fit for brighton.

Aarons could be out for months desperately need a winger now with only ritchie and gouffran available.

23 Aug 2016 15:26:20
Mbabu gone to young boys.

probably best for his development.

23 Aug 2016 15:03:57
Christ I can't keep up with this, all these rumours building up really don't know exactly what rafa is thinking, reckon there could be some surprises before the window shuts.

The quicker we get rid of sissoko, the quicker we'll see more arrivals I reckon.

DeAndre Yedlin, apparently we've made a £5m bid and looks likely, but we're overloaded with full backs at the moment? Gamez apparently isn't fully fit yet, could he be our main left back even though he's right footed? If Yedlin comes then that could be the end for janmaat, UNLESS rafa decides to use janmaat as a winger? He is just attacking minded and could be useful there? Then we also have Anita whos best position is right back, and also sterry looks promising. Weve still got Dummett and Haidara

Loads of questions need answering, who knows what rafa is thinking, quite exciting.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

23 Aug 2016 10:45:48
Chronicle saying Alan Judge arriving for talks and a potential medical today. This seems to have gone completely under the radar? 14 goals and 11 assists last season and can play left winger and attacking mid. Seems to be very highly rated.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

23 Aug 2016 13:40:40
He is injured.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 13:42:49
Competing with Villa for Yedin is a joke
If he is good sign him just outbid them.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 13:52:25
Villa have outgunned us so far Vida.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 14:58:27
If its between us and villa then we'll get him, Keith Downie saying he reckons there's some substance in Yedlin rumours and could move forward quickly.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 15:14:45
Right so now TV are saying a deal for Judge may not be completed till January?

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Aug 2016 22:04:27
Makes sense.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 23:57:58
So, looks like the players who will probably leave are as follows

Krul - off to ajax to replace cillesen
Janmaat - west ham linked, we have cover there anyway but he could still yet stay, if he does, then would prefer to see him play further forward as he's not good enough defensively
Riviere - Another poor graham carr signing
Saivet - Same as riviere, rafa clearly doesn't rate him
Sissoko - Inter ready to offer £30+m apparently

Gouffran I think will stay and don't mind if he does he could do a job for us this season and apparently he wants to see the last year of his contract out. Against bristol he looked like the gouffran we first bought in january 2013, not the one that was played under McCardew.

Hope tiote stays as well as this league is perfect for him in terms of physicality and bite in midfield.

Promotion should be only priority this season so think rafa should give players like sterry, armstrong, gamez, hanley, tiote, perez, aarons and mitro a run out v cheltenham, so our key players are fully fit and ready for brighton on saturday which will be one of our hardest games of the season.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

22 Aug 2016 08:37:50
30m for sissoko. Maybe they still feel bad getting 10m for Oba Martins?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 08:41:57
Apparently in advanced talks with Haller? Don't know much about the lad.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

21 Aug 2016 09:59:32
Plunny they are in talks with 4 players, including this lad.
RB knows he is desperate for a striker AND another 2 defenders.

Hope the negotiator us George Clooney and not Charnley.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 13:07:53
Who are the others Vida? Is it Galloway, knockaert?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 13:43:44
Rafa wants Haller and is taking charge of this transfer.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 22:18:45
I heard he rang him personally. Always dangerous watching you tube clips but he looks techically very strong. Physically he gives us a bit more. Similar to Peter Crouch?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 23:49:03
haller spoken to the media and has basically said that the phone call was bull****

Striker for me isn't the top priority, a decent left back and a creative winger are. With mitro back, gayle could play just off him and they could form a deadly partnership. Along with Arma who will hopefully make his breakthrough this season.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 08:38:56
Raffa plays 4 2 3 1 so two up front I doubt will be the starting formation.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 09:27:40
Gayle just behind Mitro I reckon he might try.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 12:16:52
Gayle could be devastating picking up mitros knock ons. Especially if we can get someone on the left like Ritchie. The midfield two would be my concern as you really need someone like Tiote in there.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2016 10:21:06
Galloway deal looks like it won't happen as Boro are now in tge driving seat.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

14 Aug 2016 11:55:54
I think we're still in thee driving seat dessy, I don't think Everton want him going to another premier league club. Let's hope he can improve the back four if he does come. We also need to get our fingers out and get a creative midfielder and out and out goal scorer in before the window shuts.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Aug 2016 12:28:15
He is on his way to Teesside.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Aug 2016 13:49:44
He's guaranteed a starting spot here, at Boro he isn't as their captain is friend who plays at left back.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Aug 2016 16:09:08
Give him a shout JT he is at the Riverside.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Aug 2016 16:56:44
only heard by the sunday people that middlesbrough are "interested" so hopefully we can get him in before the reading game.

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 21:58:07
Desree you ask for pressing, and intense football, I saw that from the boys tonight.

Fantastic result.

Agree2 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 05:45:31
2nd half was a better showing, a long way to go JT. Remember we all thought norwich 6-2 would see the team crack on. As for our defence, the names change yet the mistakes are all the same.

Good goals by Gayle - but ritchie isn't just a class above, he celebrated harder than Ketsbai!

Pleased I could help Raffa and the lads with my advice. Vida had a word but took all the credit!

Agree1 Disagree1

18 Aug 2016 11:28:42
He always seems to know what is going on.

Lat season he was spot on, and this season has started the same way but in reverse support of RB.

Agree3 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 17:39:08
Sitting in Oz is a little different from going to a live match especially away

The atmosphere the adrenalin from the patter and differing opinions (something we have all had) for absolutely sure
is the basis and mainstay of this club.

Perhaps it may be resoectful to read what is said by these fans before sceptically harping on about how poor we are and that nothing has changed, because it has.

Does not matter if we play with 12 men.
Rafa dusting down his white shirt and bow tie he fan always get a job
2 games lost against ordinary teams
The mountain just got steeper.

13 Aug 2016 21:58:03
Rafa is not a magician. We can forget about automatic promotion.

Agree0 Disagree3

13 Aug 2016 23:45:50
No saviours on the horizon. Raffa needs to take some blame here.
If this sheff wed lad is fast, powerful and wants to win games then get him in.

Raffa needs to change formation to 442 or 433 and utilise ritchie.

He needs to decide on who his CB's are fast and stick with them.

Ritchie has to start on the right and develop an understanding with janmaat.

Gayle too isolated and not a natural finisher. He and perez look too similar. Not strong enough to play a lone striker.

Creativity is not essential in this league. Intensity, pace and power are. We are lacking in all 3. Sissoko is the ideal kind of player for this league. Ritchie too. So either play sissoko or sell him for 20m with a sell on clause and get moving. Shelvey another waste

This club continues to stick its head in the sand and deny what is happening.

I play it how I see it Vida and Raffa has ot wrong. If you want an example of how to turn a club around successfully look at Rangers. Warburton has them playing intense, fast and pressing football. Same at southampton, spurs, leicester.

So far Raffa has got it absolutely wrong. Performances and results back me up. I'm not being petulant and I'm not asking for Raffa to be sacked.

I am asking for a change in tactics, more intent to win games and make things happen. Respectfully Fulham, QPR and Bristol have no playmakers or creative spark. It isn't the way to play in thisdivision. You need to be well organised, disciplined and intense.

At the moment NUFC are none of those. All I want to see is my team have a real go. Geordies have turned into a right soft bunch since I left. Blokes getting spray tans, waxing and eyebrows done, wearing make up then off to the town. It only happened in rockshots. Aussies don't stand for their team not having a propper go. NUFC has lost its identity and the football Raffa has got the team playing is not what NUFC is about. Chris Hughton is the only manager to get it right since SBR and he built his systen around the players.

Do you think Mike Ashley is happy? He will be thinking what have I done, this bloke is costing 5 times more than Pardew and he did a better job. I see utter disaster round the corner if Raffa doesn't get things happening soon.

Agree0 Disagree2

16 Aug 2016 19:19:21
Boll. ix Des
You ate considering Ashley who s on his onees in front of RB
If RB walks or is asked to move on there will be a riot.

This smacks of Charnley Only 3m spent so far after transfers and looks like Sissoko sale is the key despite we are under no pressure to sell.

Yes I think it is a blessing in diguise as it has not only woken you up it has everyone connected ithNewcastle United.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 11:05:18
great to be back in the relegation zone Art - the only way is up from here!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 17:01:05
Can I just ask Desree did you watch the whole game against Huddersfield, or did you only see the goals?

I honestly don't see how the football we are playing under Rafa is as bad as it has been under pardew etc. The second half against Huddersfield, we completely dominated them, first half yes we were toothless and Huddersfield were better than us. All 3 of our goals conceded have been from defensive mistakes, cut them out and we will be hard to beat, along with putting away our chances and learning how to break down solid defences more.

Teams in the past that have got promoted from the championship have had poor starts, and it's probably the best/ most competitive it's ever been this year.

Rafa knows the problems, and it's clear by his press conference that he's still not happy with the squad, and wants to have a settled one by 1st September, and is still trying to find the best XI, and correct the mistakes and improving the system.

Get behind the lads for tonight, need players like Lascelles, Shelvey, Perez, Sels, Mbemba to improve and stand up and be counted, and give their all.
