The Latest Newcastle United FC Transfer News for 2017 – 2018
- Mon, 22 Oct 2018 07:12:36 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Newcastle United | The Guardian
Woefully leaky Fulham are on course to concede 100 goals, and is it nearly time for Álvaro Morata and Chelsea to part ways?
On the eve of the new season Slavisa Jokanovic said Fulham “don’t have to change much but we need to be intelligent. We need to grow up.” Two months down the line and either Jokanovic underestimated how much Fulham needed to adapt to be ready for the Premier League or his players are not being as smart as he had hoped. Whatever the answer, Fulham did not spend more than £100m in the summer to be languishing in the relegation zone with one win from nine games and a defensive record that is in danger of becoming an embarrassment. Alarm bells should be ringing after Cardiff, who had scored only four times in their opening eight games, doubled their tally for the season against Jokanovic’s porous team. As things stand, Fulham are on course to concede more than 100 goals this season. They need to wise up fast. Stuart JamesContinue reading...

Mike Ashley does not really do regrets but in a rare moment of introspection Newcastle’s owner did recently offer Chris Hughton a public apology for sacking him eight years ago.
It was a particularly harsh dismissal and only served to deepen the affection of Tynesiders for the leftwinger they dubbed “Comrade Chris”.Continue reading...

Two points from eight games is not what the Spaniard expected but Newcastle have had a tough start and Saturday’s meeting with Brighton is now must-win
There will always be a special bond between Chris Hughton and Newcastle supporters but anxious home fans hope to see their former manager defeated when his Brighton side visit St James’ Park on Saturday. After all, Rafael Benítez’s team have only two points and are desperately seeking a first win of the campaign.

Chris Hughton remains one of Newcastle’s most popular former managers but Tynesiders will be willing Brighton to suffer on Saturday as Rafa Benítez’s side seek their first win of the season. With only two points collected so far this has been an awful start on Gallowgate and alarm bells will really start clanging should the home side stumble once more. “The first win is always the most difficult,” says Benítez. “I think that, once we get it, things will become easier for us; we’ll have more confidence.” Louise Taylor

Newcastle United have been the focus of much speculation in recent weeks in regards of new additions to the squad with many household names being linked with the north east club. Manager Alan Pardew has been scouring the football world for players to add to his team who can bring as much to the table for Newcastle as last years signings Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse did last season as they were two of the most influential signings the club has made for several years.
The biggest story this summer for Newcastle is their desire to bring back Andy Carroll to St James Park as the former Newcastle striker has found it extremely hard to find his feet at Anfield and it is widely believed that new Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers sees no future for the huge striker in his plans to take Liverpool back to the top of the division. Liverpool however have stated so far that they have received no offers for Carroll but have also failed to state if they would entertain any for him as he cost the Merseysiders thirty five million pounds less than two seasons ago which they would fail to recoup if they in fact did decide to sell their misfiring striker.
One of the top targets for Pardew this season looks to be FC Twente defender Douglas as the club are believed to have just tabled a bid of around four million pounds for the services of the Brazilian player. Douglas has recently stated that he wishes to search for pastures new after completing a couple of seasons for the Belgian side and it looks highly likely that he will be plying his trade in the premier league next season for Newcastle as long as they can complete the deal successfully.
Another player who Newcastle are keen on signing from Fc Twente is the Dutch player Luuk De Jong although it looks highly unlikely that Pardew will be able to bring the player to St James Park as he is seemingly on his way to German side Borussia Monchengladbach. A deal is yet to be signed by the Dutch international yet the hope of bringing him to the north east for the start of next season is dwindling day by day but there is still hope for Pardew until the player signs on the dotted line.
French international Mathieu Debuchy looks all set to complete a move to Newcastle after the player who is currently at Lille has stated that it is his priority to play in the premier league next season and his preferred destination right now is Newcastle. This will be like music to Newcastle fans ears as the defender is extremely well thought of around Europe and can offer a great boost of experience and skill to the Magpies defence.
Want away Blackburn player Junior Hoilett is another player who is on Pardews radar is the striker is all set to leave the championship side with it looking more than likely he will be heading off to Germany with Borussia Monchegladbach. Pardew though still holds hope he can persuade the striker to turn his attentions to Tyneside but this is looking more unlikely each day.
