Edison Cavani? You’re having a laugh!

Oooh suits you!
Newcastle United are set to battle Arsenal for the signature Napoli’s Edison Cavani, if reports in Metro are to be believed.

Most of us know that they are not to be believed however, but it won’t stop certain other sites from reporting speculation from this publication as a kind of fact rather then the attention seeking headline and general press nincompoopery that it ultimately is.

There is no chance of us signing Edison Cavani, and I’d quite happily bare my arse in Fenwick’s window if it ever did come off. I think it’s safe to say that my derrière can keep it’s modesty as quite frankly I can’t see Newcastle spending £20 million, which is the players reported release fee, on any one individual player. In fact given how light our squad is on quality I think I would prefer it if any transfer monies spent this summer were to be spread out on three or four decent players rather than one superstar as I think that would benefit the squad more.

Still, it’s another name that has been linked with us, albeit in a rather farcical way. It does bring me to my question though, rather nicely in fact, and I need your advice.

Basically we are going to be linked with a load of players over the summer, all of which will be discussed at some point I’m sure. What I want to do is cover each one, briefly, and compile a big, long list of our alleged transfer targets which we can reflect back upon. The problem I’m having is working out when to start this procedure, so any suggestions on that would be greatly appreciated.

Think of it as a transfer centre that is created with the same budget as what Sky spend on a sandwich but is administered with a labour of love for Newcastle. A one stop shop where you can see just who has been linked with us throughout the summer.

I’ll leave Cavani off it for now, although he is a quality player. I would love him at Newcastle as he can score goals (29 in 40 games this season), but at the price I just feel that there is absolutely zero chance of us even taking a second look at him. If you knock the zero off the and make it £2 million then perhaps we would be interested, but not for £20 million.

Ah well, silly season indeed!

  1. Some dream 😆

    I had a dream like that once but it involved a night on the trips and disco biscuits 😆

  4. We used to pay massive amounts for over rated players. I wonder if we will again, once we have a decent squad after this summer. (half glass full. haha!)

  6. Oh toonsy: if you have the sticky function,you can sticky that particular thread to prevent it going down to next page of the forum if there are more threads created in future. 😉

  11. Aaahnyway – good call on this, Toonsy – should make the summer a bit more interesting. I’d start the day after the last day of the season, and include EVERY link – even this one.

    Someone did something similar a few years back, and the score was along the lines of “Players linked to NUFC: 152; players from those links that ended up joining: zilch”. I think it excluded any ‘link’ that was within 48 hours of a player’s signature or something; otherwise it was a bit ‘fish-and-barrell’…

    Jobey – Workyticket runs a blog that I used to write for who has developed a problem with me since I left his blog and set up alone but he was fine with me whilst I was ill and still driving the traffic by writing near on 700 articles for him. Go figure eh?
