The Shopping List of NUFC Lies

The Shopping List of NUFC Lies

One week after the football supermarket doors flung open, we're still to find Newcastle United queuing up at the tills to pay for 'goods' chosen.

Meanwhile, the shopping list of lies grows by the minute.

A lot of media sites just throw random names out for internet hits whilst greedy agents do likewise, although their motive is to drive the transfer fee up in order to bulge their pockets more.

Here on Talk of the Tyne, we're probably no different to the man in the pub or the twitter user in that we talk and speculate, however, we're more savvy than most by realising that the lies are a massive danger to the everyday fan as well as the game itself.

This past week alone has seen media sites like Sky wheel out the usual bull about their sources saying a deal is close or an insider indicating that x amount of players will be attempted to be signed and don't get me started with Twitter and the endless stream of 'in the know' accounts who spout oodles of shite.

Ive no doubt that we're probably looking to bring one player in.

A bargain buy or player nearing the end of his contract that will have a big value once he's on a 4 or 5 year deal here.

Apart from that, i'll be very surprised.

The list of lies in this past week alone has contained:

RĂ©my Cabella
Luuk de Jong
Bafetimbi Gomis
Moussa Sow
Shane Long
Aidan McGeady
Demba Ba
John Heitinga
Joleon Lescott
Dele Alli
Carlton Cole
Nathan Dekoke

and that's just the start.

Some clubs have came out and distanced themselves or their players from bids being made but someone, somewhere is spouting.

The clubs itself isn't blameless either because they were quick to ban individuals or newspaper groups, for what was after all, just reporting on the truth but they are very slow or don't act at all on fans hopes being built up and dropped like a stone that transfer lies can do.

The club know who they are after and if a media site or newspaper lies about a target then (if we're going down the malicious route) they should be banned for upsetting the fans.

It wont happen and we all know why.
