Ashley pledging "a wow signing"

Ashley pledging

Apparently corporate fans were given decent spiel by 'Iron` Mike Ashley. Our supremo told the corporate that they should expect a 'wow signing` imminently. The Telegraph believes it to be another Argentinian, Javier Saviola. Upon hearing the news KK quipped:

"I can`t wait to call him to hear who the 'wow` signing is. It`s a shame he told the corporate fans before me. Dennis Wise, Mike Ashley and Tony Jimenez know we need three more players. We are working really well to get some quality signings in. Over the past few years, Newcastle have got some players in who haven`t been good enough, for whatever reason.

If Dennis gets me three more like that! Gutierrez was terrific. Coloccini has had one training session yet he showed his class. I had young Danny Guthrie as my man of the match. He could prove to be as good as the other two, who are both internationals.

I`ve told Steven Taylor he can learn from Fabricio. I told him if he learns, he can take the step up. Steven is in the Under-21s now and can step up again to where Fabricio is - a full international. They could be our partnership for the next five years.``

Honestly very hard to argue with that! He should be the one to choose the signings but all of your new guys proved themselves to be quality today. Point well earned boys, congratulations.

I was really impresed with you guys today, I've always rated Coloccini, Gutierrez looked a handful, and I agree with KK that Guthrie looked very good. He seemed very composed in possession and whilst he didn't exactly split united's defence (which is obviously extremely difficult) he didn't give the ball away and seems to have a good positional sense. I admit that I thought you were a club going in the wrong direction but after seeing you properly today, first game of the season or not, you clearly are now a growing club, rather than a stagnating one. Well done.

KK makes the difference. Fat Sam, Roeder, Souness - all went to Old Trafford expecting to get humped with 5 defenders and no strikers and thats what happened. Keegan went to give them a game, no fear, and we get a result. Shows why we all have faith in the man.
