Well, I hadn't seen a great deal of the previous subject of my little mini series of players being followed by Graham Carr, EA Guingamp's Gilbert Imbula Wanga, but I have seen even less of this tall (6'5″) Centre Back from another Ligue 2 side, AJ Auxerre. I have only seen the compilation below and [.
The first in my mini series on players being followed by Newcastle United's chief scout Graham Carr is the much fancied 20 year old, Gilbert Imbula from French Ligue 2 side, Guingamp. Though Imbula is yet another central midfielder, and yet another player from France, he does look like a very talented central midfielder who [.
Well not if your surname is "Ferguson," "Wenger" or "Mourinho" perhaps, but for most, if not quite all of the others who won the award, it has seemingly been a ticket to disaster, despair, and possibly permanent career oblivion, or at least a prelude to a big dent in the manager's CV. In this story, [.
My esteemed colleague, Jimbob, has already taken a look back at the season past, you have already
voted Fabricio Coloccini as our "Player of the Season," but now it is time to look forward to next
season. Being the hopelessly deluded, stereotypical Geordies that we are, Alan Pardew seems to
think that our expectations will [.
We've been looking at a number of players and how they performed last season, in an attempt to maybe pinpoint some of the players Graham Carr and his scouting team may be keeping tabs on, and could even be a target for Newcastle this summer. Jurgen Locadia 6'3″ 19 year-old PSV striker One player [.
When Cheick Tiote first signed for Newcastle back in the summer of 2010, after being scouted by Graham Carr for a number of years, he was an instant success, and in the following two January transfer windows, Chelsea made big bids to take the Ivorian to the top London club. Cheick Tiote what happened?
Alan Pardew has explained to Newcastle fans today with an interview in the Evening Chronicle, just how the club does its transfer business, and there's also news that Newcastle have expanded their scouting area to include places like Romania and Serbia, as well as France, Holland and Belgium. Graham Carr a top man at [.
We all know that it's not easy for Newcastle to bring in new players to the club, and that's because Alan Pardew is given so little money to spend. Alan Pardew two positions he wants to strengthen? Graham Carr does an excellent job for the club in finding top young players, who are not [...]
Gael Bigirimana believes the bad times he went through at Coventry City, are now standing him in good stead at Newcastle, and Gael is flying high as a Magpie in the Europa League, after being in the Coventry side that was relegated from the Championship last May. Gael Bigirimana already looks a good player [.
We reported the news on this yesterday, and it seems that Graham Carr has identified 22 year-old Norwegian Jo Inge Berget – who can play up front as a striker or out on the wing as a Newcastle target, and the new news is that Newcastle will bid £2M for the player in January. [...]
If you have been reading Newcastle United stories in the media recently, you will probably have noticed the announcement that Mike Ashley has decided to give Alan Pardew and his backroom staff, John Carver, Steve Stone and Andy Woodman eight year contracts. There has a recent precedent of course, with chief scout Graham Carr having [.
News today thatNewcastleare looking at new targets to potentially bring into the club inJanuary, and one ofthoseisGroningen defender Virgil van Dijk, the 21 year-old 6'4″ defender. Virgil van Dijk Newcastle linked strongly with top youngster Graham Carr has been busyagainand Graham and his staff have alreadywatchedthe Dutch U21 center-back a few times thisseason, and [.
It's here again already! Newcastle United's series of pre season fixtures starts this evening in
Chemnitz, as the Magpies kick off their European tour, playing six games (if you count one against
the Dutch Den Haag which is yet to be officially confirmed). Two of the games will be played in
Germany, one in Hungary [.
You may have noticed that Newcastle United's chief scout, Graham Carr, was very much in the news
recently, and much of this was centered around him being given an eight year contract by the club's
managing director, Derek Llambias. Usually, when a club renews an agreement with it's chief scout,
it hardly gets a great [.
In a brief but revealing interview for the Independent on Saturday, Chris Hughton has decided to
put the record on misinformation about his role at Newcastle United. Speaking on his time at the
club, he said (amongst other things) what some knew already, that it was actually he who brought
Graham Carr, Hatem Ben Arfa [.
Newcastle United chief scout, Graham "Fatty Man" Carr, the less than svelte father of Alan, has, of
course, built something of a reputation amongst Magpies fans for his player spotting abilties.
Carr, a Northumbrian who was born in Corbridge like Steve Bruce, was brought into the club in
February of 2010 by previous manager, Chris [.
They came, they saw, we conquered. Newcastle United 2 Liverpool 0 has a certain ring to it, don't
you think? It's certainly put a little skip in my step on this particular Monday morning! This
isn't a match report as such. It's more of a "reflections" piece featuring a few random thoughts as
we find [.
>. Welcome to the penultimate part of my transcription of Alan Pardew's long and very revealing
interview for BBC Radio Newcastle's 'Total Sport'. In this one, Pardew spills the beans about
Newcastle United's alleged pursuit of Mevlüt Erdinç, and whether he or any other new strikers
might be joining joining the club before the end [.
Newcastle United first team coach, Steve Stone, has been on the qualities required in Newcastle
United's transfer targets, emphasising that the club is looking for young players who can inject a
bit of pace into the side. This is has been a quality which has been seen by some as lacking in the
United squad [.
Mike Ashley's '5 year plan' is to create a self sufficient business model, this is the aim for his
Newcastle United project. Now, this should be the aim for any business, and especially where
football clubs are concerned with the financial rules set to take effect, and the current state of
the economic climate.
Just how much say does Alan Pardew have in the transfers and contract negotiations at Newcastle
United? I think we all suspect that Mike Ashley has the final say on transfers these days. Some
folk have even suggested that Graham Carr is almost taking a Director of Football role and that he
and Ashley are [.
In Newcastle United's latest PR drive to sell as many Season tickets as possible before the end of
April deadline, chief scout, Graham Carr, has been wheeled out for an interview with Tyneside
weekly, the Sunday Sun, to reassure fans that he will leave no stone unturned in his quest for new
players. In the [.
I think it would be fair to say that Newcastle midfielder, Cheick Tioté, has been something of a
success since he was signed by the club from F.C. Twente on 26 August 2010. Despite the modest
£3.5 milllion payed by The Magpies for the player, he has since drawn comparisons with world class
stars such [.
Imagine you're 67 years old, and the Club you've supported all of your life, your home town club,
offers you bucket loads of cash, plus expenses, to travel abroad and watch football lots of
football. Stay in nice hotels, eat at the finest restaurants but best of all, watch loads and loads
Over the past few years of the Ashley regime the NUFC faithful have had good reason to become
discontented. However after drifting into yet another football based discussion at work, I had to
think to myself, IS IT ALL THAT BAD? Before I even begin I will clarify, this is not a pro-Ashley
post, I [..
12 months ago the Toon Army were buzzing. They had just defeated Stoke City 3-0 at St James' Park, brushing aside Tony Pulis men with consummate ease. At the heart was a midfield the envy of much of the Premier League. Yohan Cabaye, Cheicke Tiote, Hatem Ben Arfa and Jonas Guitierrez were the pivot of a team that was enjoying a run of six unbeaten games conceding just one in the process.
