Evening Ed002, just a nudge to see if you could squeeze in that Newcastle update? Much appreciated if you can, no drama if you don't have time yet. Cheers either way.

{Ed002's Note - I thought I had done it already? Let me know if you can't see it.}

Hey ed's just wondering if you could give an update on any incomings and outgoings at Newcastle. Cheers ed.

{Ed002's Note - Ask on Monday and I will try.}

Hi Eds. Any updates on the incomings/ outgoings? Really appreciate your inputs, Eds.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry about this, time has been an issue. I have not checked to see if there are any very recent updates but my existing notes say:

Martin Dubravka (GK) - done
Karlo Letica (GK) – moved to Brugge and I would say the goalkeeping buy of the summer – one you will hear a lot more about
Ryan Fredericks (RB) – moved to Spurs
Kenedy (LWB) – arrived on loan
Federico Fernandez (CB) – discussed at the same time as Sung-yong Ki but came to nothing, NU may return but Schar is first choice right now
Kasim Nuhu (CB) – seen as too expensive and looking likely to join Hoffenheim
Fabian Schar (CB) – will arrive to replace Mbemba if RB gets his way
Mikel Merino (DM) – done but sold on
Sung-yong Ki (DM) – done
Thiago Mendes (DM/CM) - put off by Lille's €25M asking price
Andre-Franck Zambo Anguissa (DM/CM) – kept watching him last season but nothing will happen now
Valon Berisha (M) – opted for Lazio instead
Kasey Palmer (M) – loan wanted but not allowed
Mario Goetze (AM) – no realistic chance of him moving to NU
Stefano Sturaro (CM) – interest has gone
Lovro Majer (AM) – a wildcard option it may be worth keeping an eye on for the future
Andros Townsend (RW) – wanted but Crystal Palace will not want to sell
Carlos Mane (RW) – I expect interest has gone
Yacine Brahimi (LW) – in talks with another side and covered by arrival of Kenedy
Ruben Loftus-Cheek (M) – loan wanted but not allowed
Divock Origi (F) – remains possible but NU would only want a loan
Quincy Promes (F) – very, very, very, unlikely
Alassane Plea (S) – headed to Borussia Moenchengladbach
Yoshinori Muto (S) - may be a WP issue in England and if Gayle stays it would be unlikely
Salomon Rondon (S) preferred choice

Jesus Gamez (RB) - gone
Massadio Haidara (LB) – gone
Stuart Findlay (CB) – gone
Curtis Good (CB) - gone
Mikel Merino (DM) – moved on for purposes of profiteering
Jack Colback (DM) – loaned to NF
Chancel Mbemba (CM) – Porto would like a deal
Aleksandar Mitrovic (S) – will head to Fulham I would think
Dwight Gayle (F) – expected to stay

23 Jul 2018 23:42:09
A million thanks to you, Ed02.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

26 Jan 2018 01:11:41
Looks like another pointless year supporting NUFC.

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

Agree3 Disagree1

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.

15 Oct 2017 20:49:22
Good hard worked result today
not an easy place to go
Perez good goal, his replacement Gayle waste of space but both of them are not PL standard
Mitro has to start Joselu is just passable
Anyway well done the team.

Agree3 Disagree0

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)

Agree2 Disagree0

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.

04 Oct 2017 18:34:38
Let us all hope there is some truth in Ashley selling up!!

I heard he is vamping up the price nearer 500m which is a joke

{Ed001's Note - he is in discussions which are subject to an NDA.}

Agree3 Disagree0

04 Oct 2017 19:27:04
Yes I know and he is trying to get what he paid with his loan taken out and 380m
NDC has nothing to do with the bid
As for Staveley she personally does not have enough money
Her consortium who are not one of the 3 parties of course do have the money in extream.

{Ed001's Note - she has no consortium, she represents extremely wealthy people, she is not actually a part of it.}

05 Oct 2017 09:18:41
Contradicting reports ed
Are that she wants to be part of it, but with a personal fortune of 110m she can not afford it unless she will be a figurehead for her clients who of course have billions.

But of course even at Ashley's asking price of 380m he could again move the posts.

Talks with Barnes are immenent
& all the loyal fans like JT and Des could be dancing a jig.

{Ed001's Note - I don't read reports, I am saying what I am told is her involvement.}

05 Oct 2017 10:31:31
Neither do I only what business I am involved with and this is news in those circles.

{Ed001's Note - then why mention the reports?}

05 Oct 2017 18:02:45
Because that is all you can mention when in this business
I know more than you but
I am not a reporter.

{Ed001's Note - if you say so.}

10 Sep 2017 17:56:21
Back to back wins can't ask for more
Some good performances BUT how does Perez get in any team he is wishy washy tracks back and does not tackle he is hopeless and Diame is not much better

Agree12 Disagree2

10 Sep 2017 20:02:21
thought perezwas okay to be honest.

10 Sep 2017 21:10:21
Your opinion suggest you watch the reppkay he was so inafective and offers nothing and the people I spoke to today around me thought exactly the same
What does Perez do he tracks back and does not make a tackle
, he can"t beat a man, he is Mr Average.
Perez Diame and Colback all need replacing.

10 Sep 2017 23:42:04
Perez contribution is poor
He runs about but at times looks lost for me also he is inefective a lot of the time
Today he was OK but just that
If anyone can help him Rafa can he is part of the team so let's see.

01 Sep 2017 13:53:57
Rafa Benítez has lost virtually all trust in Mike Ashley's regime at Newcastle United and, no longer regarding his job as a long-term project,he wull be receptve to offers

After being used to clean up the mess a ticking Bomb

Agree11 Disagree0

01 Sep 2017 15:19:02
Yes Rafa has now completely lost faith in owner Mike Ashley and his joke if a regime and is ready to listen to other job offers as and when they become available.

01 Sep 2017 21:03:36
I think for once all fans are united. I can only hope that the intent is to sell the club and they are trimming every cost to increase the value.
Maybe that is why Keith Bishop has been involved recently?

02 Sep 2017 11:00:53
One can hope des.

Why would Keith bishop getting involved make a difference?

02 Sep 2017 11:03:42
Think you are correct.

31 Aug 2017 22:01:39
God knows what goes on in Ashley's head. Is he trying to destroy nufc. We've got a world-class manager who could easily transform us into a top 6 side if only he would back him. Rafa will need to pull off a miracle to keep this team in the premier league. Or will he walk?

Agree3 Disagree0

31 Aug 2017 23:03:23
42 points are the aim 21 before January and 21 from the run in

Ashley can not handle the vast foitball World and will not play to any success

Unbelievably Rafa is allowing this to happen.

30 Aug 2017 15:20:40
Rumours that origi has been spotted. If this is true then Gayle is out. Not sure about this one.

Agree2 Disagree5

30 Aug 2017 19:25:16
Origi off to wolfsburg.

29 Aug 2017 21:52:44
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.

Agree3 Disagree3

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.

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.

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

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

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

Agree3 Disagree0

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.}

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

Agree4 Disagree0

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.

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.

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.

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.

17 Aug 2017 11:09:38
On the subject of Strikers it is said
Rafa having to look at the bargain basement end of the transfer market (signing Joselu for £5m whilst Championship club Middlesbrough pay £15m for a striker), it would indeed be a miracle if Rafa did get Newcastle to mid-table, never mind a European place

Agree16 Disagree1

21 Aug 2017 11:21:37
This team wouln't make mid table championship.

21 Aug 2017 20:40:59
Des the enormity of Benitez job is unbelievable
We sign the players we need which I think is minimum 3 or we will be in the bottom 4 all season.

16 Aug 2017 15:53:06
Why did we not get Rodrieguez from PSG on loan Stoke did

Agree12 Disagree0

14 Aug 2017 11:54:18
Joselu due for medical

Agree6 Disagree0

13 Aug 2017 12:47:31
Perez now 20m could have been bought for 13m.Omce agsin trepidation and poor negotiation
WILTSHIRE for Newcastle never

Agree15 Disagree7

09 Aug 2017 22:41:39
Mirror saying we've got Kenedy on loan, is this another option as a winger or is he for left back where he played occassionally under mourinho?

Agree5 Disagree14

12 Aug 2017 19:23:19
Absolutley hopeless they reported we had also singed Ings.

12 Aug 2017 23:26:54
Haha football focus even had him on our "ins" and he was on Chelsea's bench.

08 Aug 2017 14:48:42
Ashley has to wake up and support his world-class manager before he wakes up one morning and Rafa Benitez is no longer his manager

Agree24 Disagree0

08 Aug 2017 18:33:47
It's weird to think that when we were under pardew, almost every fan wanted him out and there was such dire and toxic atmosphere in the stadium and even in the city as a whole, and it seemed like Ashley just wanted to keep him. but now we've actually got a manager that has brought us more together, a manager that everyone loves, it seems like Ashley is doing everything to ruin it and push him away. Rafa arguably one of the best things that's ever happened to this club, and there is so much potential under him it's unreal. It baffles me why Ashley doesn't want to be part of that.

{Ed001's Note - because Rafa likes to spend money maybe?}

09 Aug 2017 02:15:33
Rafa knows he has a relagation battle on his hands and it is a disgrace because it will happen
Panic befote the window closes
40m has already been revceived from tv money and with total 170m Ashley does not give s sch itt.

06 Aug 2017 21:15:48
Players look fit, strong, and hungry and ready for the new season, but worried about where the goals are going to come from.

Guaranteed goal scorer before spurs game please.

Other than that, looking forward to the new season

Agree5 Disagree7

07 Aug 2017 09:17:47
Simply a Striker and LB (we have had a stop gap for ages) and yes a strong tackling able to win and pass a ball DMF which we have back up for
Finally the goalkeeping situation needs sorting once and for all
Then we have some sort of chance.

04 Aug 2017 22:14:39
This is becoming a joke now some of players being linked with not better than what we already have and were struggling to sign them were going to have a long hard slog next season hope we stay up does ashley really care if we go down starting to think not still see rafa walking unless we get off to good start

Agree10 Disagree1

04 Aug 2017 13:48:29
Another derisory offer for Stokes out of favour striker
ASHLEY you are a disgrace!
From a good source clubs do not want to deal with Ashley and know Charnley is his puppet

Agree12 Disagree0

04 Aug 2017 14:57:33
Seems someone told Ashley the reality and we have entered into talks for Joselu.

01 Aug 2017 22:14:03
Gayle, mitrovic, Perez, riviere. Rafa trying to get riviere moved on (should happen this week) . That leave's 3 recognised strikers. Surely we can't go into the season with that.

Agree4 Disagree0

02 Aug 2017 16:47:24
There will be another striker bought in.

04 Aug 2017 14:58:53
Absolutely correct if he is cheap enough
Rafa sticking with players he knows.

31 Jul 2017 12:04:35
Hi Des Digger lookibg forward to our PL campaign?

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2017 08:26:13
Vida - I am quietly confident we will struggle. Relying on other teams to keep us up.

Ritchie 3 goals last time in the prem

Gayle 10

Perez 6

Mitro 10

Thats 29 goals maybe another 20 collectively from the team.

We need to keep clean sheets. Not sure if we have the capability to manage 8.

Goals win games, clean sheets get points.

Rafa is a great coach. But the squad is arguably weaker since we were last in the Prem.

If we had a real leader at the back Shawcross or a 15 goal striker I would feel better.

All the signings show potential, but Raffa doesn't have a 100% record with transfers.

I am sure Rafa will figure out a system to get the most out of what he has got. But I don't expect miracles.

01 Aug 2017 11:18:28
Agree with the above des, only difference I see this time is obviously a better manager and a group of players who want to play and work for each other. Still plenty time to get a few more in.

01 Aug 2017 17:52:46
Agree with that des. Remember this time round we have a very good manager, better than most out of the teams outside top 6. We also have a lot more spirit and togetherness imo. A much more balanced squad. Still ant a proven goal scorer, creativ mid, LB and GK.

01 Aug 2017 18:46:19
Reads sensible Des but think we are just noy strong or aggressive enough scoring goals will be difficult.
