Newcastle officially up for sale, Ashley wants it sold by Christmas

1.) 16 Oct 2017 19:13:41
Hats off to Larry we can all smile again.
There can be no negatives only joy and a chance to re establish Newcastle United.

Struggling to understand what's going on with Amanda Staveley there's conflicting reports some saying she is the actual BUYER although I thought she's just connected to these middle eastern groups with the 28billion, I thought she'd be the one to negotiate the deal and complete the takeover between the buyers and Ashley

Latest is that Ashley wants to sell up asap as he doesn't want to spend in January (when does ever do that anyway)

1.) 09 Oct 2017 21:49:47
Trying to pick the bones out
Coukd be Stavely is actually wanting to buy Liverpool which she tried to do before on behalf of investors and to be their link at the club with a possible Benitez return.

Her corporation is not one of the companies who have signed confidential agreement.

I hear a Chinese group are near to taking their interest further.

Don't want us to sell Gayle. Shown for palace he's half decent in the prem and his pace causes problems, would be stupid to sell with no replacement and can't think of anyone we could get who would be just as good for 15-20m. He's been unfit last 2 games but he's useful and a different kind of striking option to have.

Just need to ship out Krul, Hanley, Lazaar, Colback then get some signings in, should be no excuses now. Think Benitez is more keen on saivet than colback.

1.) 29 Aug 2017 22:31:48
Gayle on his way to Fulham. New No. 9 before Friday along with a LB whi knows nobody but reads positive.

2.) 30 Aug 2017 09:10:47
This is it I reckon. If Gayle is sold with no replacement that will be the last straw for rafa. Want us to keep him don't think we could get anyone better.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 13:37:55
Rafa wants to sell him.

4.) 30 Aug 2017 21:02:46
Rafa wants a different type of Striker.

5.) 31 Aug 2017 07:42:54
Already got 2 target men imo we need an option with pace.



26 Aug 2017 22:50:12
And he's the customary come down after high spirits from a win. Rafa now linked with West Ham job again and has a release clause of £5m+ which you'd imagine West Ham would have no problem paying, ultimately its his decision though. Would he go? Owners have more ambition, money and better players and would give him power, but in terms of stadium, fans, potential, stature, what do they have that we don't?

I would cry if he left for them

1.) 27 Aug 2017 20:53:45
ed is it true that if benitez wanted to leave he'd have to pay £6m himself then if another club wanted him they'd have to pay £6m?

{Ed002's Note - I don't know the detail but it won't involve any payment of a fixed figure by him. It will typically require any interested club to (a) request the permission of Newcastle United to approach him, and (b) pay a fixed amount of compensation if agreement is reached for him to move. This amount can potentially be quite significant - but I don't know what it is.}

2.) 28 Aug 2017 19:53:34
JT Rafa will not have to worry about any compo it will be taken care of.
Let's see what happens after Thursday and if W Ham sack their man.

Rafa will leave but it is up to The Oaf when that will be.



26 Aug 2017 17:05:40
Enjoy lads, have a good evening with a few tinnies. Really really good performance, so many contenders for man of the match, merino for me. Everyone put in 100% very proud.

Mitro though summing up why he's obviously behind Joselu in the pecking order, could have easily screwed us over.

Ironic thing is Ashley could now be thinking we don't need any more players, perfect chance now for us to keep the morale and confidence up with a few good signings

1.) 26 Aug 2017 18:52:20
Merinio top player rest of tbe team did well
Diame Perez Elliot simply not PL and yes we still need a quality striker

Ashley no to any other signings (I believe we are working on 3) Rafa could well walk come Mid October

Onwards and Upwards keep it up next 6 games 8/ 9 points I think anyway.

2.) 26 Aug 2017 18:58:40
Argentine International left-back Nicolas Tagliafico, from Independte linked
Could be a good signing then get a keeper and we could be sorted in defence.

3.) 26 Aug 2017 19:45:46
Let Rafa as long as we have him play the team he wants, but yes we have 2/ 3 players not up to it
and if we sign this LB it will help
Merinio shows he can fill a gap
We have the winģers we need another striker who can head a ball
Joselu and Mitro also have a job to play.

4.) 26 Aug 2017 20:30:27
Looks like we've found Shelvey's competition in Merino and I agree basically we need direct replacements for Elliot, Lazaro, Diame and Riviere

Looks like colback is finally going although he puts 100% in he's simply not good enough, Sunderland can have him back if they want.

Also can I just say Murphy looks like a waste of money, seen nothing good of him, the fact he can't beat a tiring simon francis in a foot race was the final straw for me. Thought we had a player with pace and flair but he's shown nothing



05 Nov 2017 12:31:29
Rafa is doing his best with a poor squad in quality with few premier league talents in shelvey, lascelles, ritchie. Can't really fault their effort, they just fatigued towards the end, can't understand why joselu was taken off/mitro wasn't brought on, we had no target man to hold up the ball or relieve the pressure. I was impressed in the first half but simply weren't clinical enough, and playing a high line played right into their hands. Bournemouth deserved the win in the end, saw it coming.

We need so much more quality in the striker and no10 positions, also a proper left back which we've been crying out for for years, and a goalkeeper. Shelvey was class yesterday as well and worked his socks off, remained disciplined, ref yellowed him just because of his reputation imo.

1.) 07 Nov 2017 10:09:33
We will be bottom 6 by Xmas it may start the penny dropping
We are carrying 4 players who are not PL league standard
Huddersfield Brighton Burnley and Bournmouth mediocre teams and we lost to all of them add to that Southampton winning until Petez lost the ball.



30 Oct 2017 21:53:32
Saw that before the game started, we lack so much quality and technical ability in attack its unreal. The team has a work ethic but aren't at the level of the likes of southampton etc. let's hope this takeover goes through and rafa can drastically improve this squad.

Anyway on to bournemouth now, hoping we'll be more suited to it as they'll come and attack us, giving us more space to counter attack.

1.) 30 Oct 2017 23:45:51
Perez poor once again Diame just as bad but lack of better options so can’t do much till january.



22 Oct 2017 15:55:54
Credit to rafa he's doing a fantastic job, 6th in the league who'd have thought it after that "crisis" of a window.

Lets hope there is a takeover on the horizon as its likely that both everton and west ham will be sniffing around him



21 Oct 2017 17:31:23
One of the worst games of football ever. Such a lack of quality. So poor to watch. But credit to the lads for digging in, winning while playing poor says a lot.

Onwards and upwards, can see the burnley game being very similar and most likely will end 0-0 or 1-1 I reckon

1.) 21 Oct 2017 17:59:48
3pts but agree awful.
Burnley are in it to win it and so should we be.
Burnley will be the best team we play so far they have strikers who can score unlike us.
3 promoted teams won this weekend good sign.

Benitez likes him as he defends from the front and will work his socks off. Ideally, he needs a number 10 who will not only do that but also offer a creative outlet.

We’re playing as a unit and as you say are organised and disciplined. Won’t be a top 10 finish but if we keep going like this I’m sure we’ll be able to stay up, which is the main priority.

Theres no big egos in this team, and they all listen to rafa and believe in what he wants us to do.

If we're going to stick Shelvey in play him no10 imo and Merino alongside Hayden, Merino much more disciplined and far better work ethic.
