Would be good to have a player called Ebenezer though although Ashley's already bagged the meaning behind it.

In something completely randomly related......

Typical Newcastle potentially going for a player nobody has fucking heard of as long as the price is right and there is a chance of a profit in the future. Its bad craic when shit players are going for £10m-£20m. Does this club ever fucking learn taking a risk on players that are average at best.
Vincent Aboubakar a player who was on a season long loan to Besiktas from Porto, if he were that good he wouldn't be on a season long loan he'd be in Porto's first team.

Robert Snodgrass is off, rumours to either Brighton or your lot. Lat day of the Jan sale done mainly to shut up the fans as we were promised a top signing to replace Payet, never done anything except get fat.

Supposedly interested in taking Liverpool's Sheyi Ojo on loan. If it's with a view for a permanent deal then he could be one for the future.

Its always the same lately, spend on the future ie kids who have potential, how about the here and now sign some players of a maturing age with Prem expierience .... get a blend of youth and expierience. I wish we would spend some cash on bringing a big name into the club which would make other players sit up and take notice of our club again

I don't think they can officially be with another club until then, right? As in, anything agreed beforehand is just an agreement that can be triggered on 1st July? All signings made by other clubs that are agreed, take place on this date?

Fully agree with Pyrry on this one - now is not the time to 'look to the future' - its to 'make certain of it' first. Get well respected, good quality, proven players in now - bring in the potential up-and-coming youth AFTER we're re-established in the Prem.

Reina has turned down a one year contract extension at Napoli allegedly and will be in his final year from tomorrow. I still think this would be a good deal.

He's still probably better than what we have and has leadership qualities plus clean hair.

I'm not at all sure he's better than what we have at all - he can be calamitous, a complete liability.

Rumour of the Summer via the Portugese media. A £35m bid turned down for Bas Dost.

I'll be surprised if we have that to spend overall. Net.

Can see us breaking the £20m barrier for a striker - maybe as much as £25m if we get a decent wad for Mitrovic, and our other incomings are kept at a reasonable rate.

But would be surprised if we went nearer or above £30m.

If we stay up then every season onwards would see less personnel needed per year. We'll be lucky to break our record this year for me and if we do it'll only be the once.

Next season would have to be a different matter completely with the chance to put more cash into individuals rather than a partial overhaul. See this season as the spadework for the tree that should bear fruit. Nee excuses after that.

Always said - I agree with what Benitez is doing - bringing balance to the squad.

Have enough of the right players in each position to do a good job - then it's simply about maintaining it by improving the weakest two positions each season.

7/2 seems to be the shortest odds for relegation but there are still 5 other teams whose odds are shorter.

Citeh want to sell Hart it seems - not available (for Premier League teams) for loan.

18m required for him - should rule us out then - thank fuck.

Get back in for Reina, Rafa.

18 million is small beer when you consider Jordan Pickford has been sold for 30 million . Is Hart really 12 million pounds worse than him ? He's a good solid keeper who's got peak years ahead of him he's had a bit of a downturn in form , understandable when you're unsettled. He's not the best at the Sweeper Keeper type role but under Rafa I doubt he'd be asked to do that. I think the lad wants to play, he's made a mint already so a pay cut shouldn't be an issue and a good experienced Premier League keeper would help the defence and wouldn't do this young kid Woodman any harm .

There's a reason Joe Hart can't find a club, he's utter dogshit and a terrible prick, let's by a bad keeper who the dressing room hate, fucking awful idea.

He's a liability.

With good keepers, strikers have to think how to beat them.

With Hart, they'll just think 'just hit the target from anywhere, there's a chance he'll fluff it.

Worst England 'keeper in my lifetime.

I'd be delighted with that,

Get him to work with Woodman - would be superb for now, and the future.

Saw some pics of the players back for pre-season, and the look of determination on Tim Krul's face tells a story. He doesn't want to leave,

There is always that possibility.

I know before I take to the field, or fly anywhere, I like to 'lose a bit of weight'.

That young defender released by Arse is heavily linked this morning. He's been there long enough to be able to do a job, I would think.

Aye. Supposedly got Stefan O'Connor on a free after he couldn't agree a new deal with Arsenal although his loan stints at the likes of York weren't supposed to be all that.

One for the development lot.

Joe Hart's not crap, I'd rather have him than Pepe Reina (though I've not heard the dressing room stuff) . I must of dreamt all those saves against the likes of Barcelona. All keepers have good and bad days but when he's on song I can't think of many better.

All for getting some youth into the academy, in order that we have more success with them moving to the first team than in recent years.

We've had far too few good quality come up through the ranks for many years now.
