Players on loan
I've got to admit, when we signed young Dan Gosling from Everton (On a free) I was very happy. A
young creative English player whose career seemed on the up. However after reading the Daily Fail's
article this morning, I'm dismayed to see he might be off to Doncaster. Dan Gosling, where did it
News emerged yesterday suggesting that Middlesbrough could be looking to take Nile Ranger to The
Riverside on loan. Now apart from all the jokes about empty seats at their ground and the less than
glamorous surroundings of Middlesbrough, I actually think that this would be a good move. I don't
know about you guys and gals, but [.
Newcastle look like they are about to send one of their stars of the future out on loan for the
whole season. Goalkeeper Fraser Forster was at Celtic watching them beat St Mirren 4-0 yesterday
and is set to join the SPL outfit after a recommendation from Neil Lennon's former team-mate, Paul
Lambert, who had the [.
Fellow Premier League new boys look to be targetting one of our own young guns, Nile Ranger, as
they look to beef up their attack in an attempt to survive in the Premier League. Talks have
apparently taken place between Ian Holloway and Chris Hughton over the possibility of Ranger making
the switch to Bloomfield Road, [.
Newcastle are apparently interested in bringing Manchester City's Young Player of the Season,
Dedryck Boyota, to St James' Park on a season long loan deal. Why, I don't know, but it is a story
that has been doing the rounds for a few days now, and after the stunning revelation about
Newcastle in todays Sunday Sun, [.
Speculation has been rife regarding the acquisition of loan players arriving over the summer to
bolster the Newcastle squad for their Premier League return. Players like Tom Cleverley and Jack
Wilshere have been mentioned as possible candidates to make the temporary switch to Tyneside, but
is that really the way we should be going?
Well, it's the weekend, which obviously means the papers crank up the printing press and churn out
that little bit more speculation and gossip. In spite of that though, it is actually pretty quiet
on the Newcastle transfer speculation front today, which is surprising and not what I want to see
when I wake up on [.
There has been a train of thought recently regarding Manchester City wide man Shaun Wirght-Phillips
and the possibility of a move to Tyneside on a free transfer in the summer. Certain other sites
have mentioned that the winger could be snapped up on a free transfer as his contract expires,
which is poorly researched and incorrect [.
Now it looks like Newcastle United's return to the Premier League will be somewhat of an austere
one, our attention can turn to just who Chris Hughton is likely to bring through the St James' Park
doors this summer. Hughton should have some cash available to use in the summer, although
admittedly perhaps not as much [.
Here we go with the first in a series of player reviews for the season just passed. Rather than an
individual write up for each player I thought it would give us more to discuss and work through if
I reviewed the team by on-field position. That of course means our player review for the season
Many Toon fans had a certain amount of unease about the prospect of the January transfer window.
Given the previous few windows under Mike Ashley, and a seemingly ruthless intent to slash the wage
bill since our relegation, optimism wasn't exactly flowing! Add to that a glut of injuries that
started to pile up, loan players [.
On another slow Newcastle United news day, Jose Enrique has urged the club to capitalise on the
fantastic start to the season by adding the extra players needed to give us the best shot at
finishing the promotion job off. It appears Jose is fearful of the fact that losing too many
players could jeopardize [.
It looks like Newcastle are set to capture their second signature of the summer as a loan deal for
Manchester United's 20-year old youngster, Tom Cleverley, looks set to be announced imminently This
comes hot on the 'eels after landing Perch from Nottingham Forest yesterday, and after such a slow
start in the market things now [.
Speculation regarding interest in signing Jack Wilshere has been doing the rounds again today, and
Hughton has finally admitted to being interested in securing the services of the highly rated
Arsenal youngster. Which is a confusing one really as I covered the story about Wlishere and a
possible loan switch to Tyneside a few weeks back, [.
Newcastle United manager, Alan Pardew has been speaking once again on the long awaited return of
wonder wing man, Hatem Ben Arfa, along with the loss of in form striker, Leon Best, who will now be
out for the rest of the season after being told he needed an ankle operation. Talking to The
