Toon will target Danny Graham and PSG forward Erding, both good players and will be good partnership.

Think by looking at who were linked with and who we have signed recently and using a wee bit of common sense you can see Nufc are trying to sign one from each position. .

CF - Sigorsson/Sow/Gamerio/Peterson/Wolfswinkel/

WF - Gervinho/Lens/Legear mainly to play right side in 433 with Ben Arfa left or right side with Nolan/Arfa behind a cf in a 4411

CM - Matuidi/Fer especially if Barton goes.

FB - Mbenque/Wendt/ if Jose goes, other wise reckon were looking for a CH who can play RB with Ferguson and Kadar able to cover LB. Think Ashley Williams would be the no 1 target.

I also think its likely a whole lot of dead wood will be shipped out from the squad as well as Ashley continues his huge cull on the clubs wage bill. Just defies sense what the club will be paying Cambell/Smith/Raylor/Perch/Routledge/Xisco especially when its probable some are earning more 3/4 times more than the top scorers in foreign leagues and not even playing for us. Think the club are at the point where they would let cambell/xisco/smith go for free and accept nominal fees for the rest just to improve the clubs finances.

When you rule out the older 26+ PL based players who clearly arnt targets you can see Ashley has quite clearly delegated finding players to scout Graham Carr and any manager has to pick from players he has scouted properly. You can't argue with that when the last management combo off there own backs found us perch/cambell and routledge and the less said about previous managers intentions the better. We seem to tracking a lot of young internationals who arnt quite big names yet and who the club can easily afford to boost there wages. Do you think im on the right lines ed with what you have heard going on at the toon ? {Ed001's Note - seems to be on the button mate, there is a definite desire to trim the overpaid fat off the wage budget. The plan, from what I am told, is to look for hungry lower league players eager for a chance in the Prem supplemented by players from around the world that are unknown talents like Tiote. That is why I would immediately rule out any talk of Drogba, his wages are obscene and that is going to be one of the big factors in signings for the near future.}

Ed you say pardew won't be able to get the best out of signings, have to disagree, he got the best out of dean ashton, carlton cole, leon best and enrique is also a lot better with pardew, do u even know anithing about pardew or are you just plucking things out of thin air, and newcastle are NOT scouting nils peterson FACT he was a player mentioned on ed harrisons nufc blog by a fan and is infact barely known bi newcastle {Ed001's Note - actually Newcastle are one of a number of clubs that have had Energie Cottbus watched this season. Do I know anything about Pardew? Obviously you don't if you think he got the best out of Ashton and Carlton Cole and got more out of Enrique who was playing well long before Pardew arrived. You might want to check your facts before spouting off as Cole was part of a very poor Pardew team at West Ham and was flopping badly under him. I have no idea what blog you are referring to, but I am sure you have access to Newcastle's scouting records to prove yourself right. You certainly seem to think you do by your bald statement that the lad that half the teams in the Prem are watching is barely known by the club. Mind if they barely know about a lad that everyone else is watching closely I guess it wouldn't take much to go through their scouting records, they must be minimal at most.}

Nils Petersen 30 goals in 48 apps, Ed any truth in rumours with this guy and would he be a good buy? {Ed001's Note - you are one of many clubs monitoring him, as far as I am aware there has been no move by anyone to bid for him. As for if he would be a good buy, on paper he would be, but it is impossible to say for sure unless he makes the move. I have to say that I am dubious of Pardew's ability to get the best out of any player to be honest. That would be my main worry about any player you sign.}

S.Larrson (free)

Georginio Wijnaldum (6m)

Chacnes of getting these Ed? (WelshToon) {Ed001's Note - you have some fantasy prices there mate. Jarvis was enquired after in January by a number of teams and told it would take 15m before Wolves would even listen. Though if Wolves go down and he asks to leave his price would drop but still you are looking at 10m. None of those players are entirely out of reach right now, but I would still say it was a slim chance to get them.}
