Could Sturridge be the next number 9?

Sturrdige could be available in the summer.
Daniel Sturridge gave a interview recently which really made me take notice and start to think we could possibly lure the Chelsea striker to St. James’ Park.

Maybe this is a bit of wishful thinking on my behalf, but surely we should be at least looking at a player of Sturridge’s ability if he was to become available? He’s young, and has proved he can score goals in the Premier League. He fits the profile that the club are looking for so why shouldn’t we give it a go? Anyway, back to that interview, her is what he told Sky Sports News;

“I want to play at Chelsea but if the chances don’t come at Chelsea, then I will have to look elsewhere.”

Now there was more than that said in his interview to be honest, but this was the quote that got myself and probably quite a few fans interested as we all know what Sturridge is capable of. People maybe wondering why Chelsea would let him go, but say if either Didier Drogba were to stay, or if he left and Chelsea were to sign a replacement, then Sturridge would find first team football hard to come by at Stamford Bridge.

This is where Newcastle could, and in my view should, come in!

If Chelsea were made the right offer and Sturridge wanted to leave I believe he would be interested in a move to us. We would face competition from the likes Sunderland, Bolton, Aston Villa, Everton and possibly even Tottenham, but take Spurs out of the equation and I think we wouldn’t be in with a shout of getting him. We are the only team armed with serious money so would hopefully be able to satisfy Chelsea with a bid and I’m sure once we got Sturridge up here to have a look around he would seriously consider joining us.

We haven’t necessarily been linked with Sturridge, but that may well be a good a thing as quite often NUFC will pull off a signing that nobody expected. With Pardew saying that a winger and a striker were top priorities it could be that N’Zogbia and Sturridge are top of his wish-list, and in my opinion they would be two fantastic signings who would change the team from mid-table to top eight and maybe beyond.

What a summer it could be!

    And where did I say I thought we could be after Sturridge? Show me.

    I am all for having a debate/banter, but don’t quote me as saying things I never


  3. Go stick on your Randy Savage VHS’, pj’s and slippers on and amuse yourself.

    i didnt realise u enjoy jokes so much it explains why u like saying so much yourself, you sound sadly, quite funny to me like.
    No one was laughing at supposed joke about Ronaldo :D:D:D:D


  4. toonarmy, I would love nothing better than to do that πŸ˜€ Sounds like a perfect sunday, all I need is the Guinness.

    It’s not that often i pipe up to be honest mate, you just annoy me with your dismissive attitude to what anyone else was saying πŸ˜‰ then you start to get personal when your argument falls on it’s backside. πŸ˜‰


  5. It’s lovely to log on and find a fecking comedian….

    A brief summary…. Sturridge has said he wants first team football, he’d consider a deal up here IMO if chelsea don’t want him.

    Elmander is ferking filth, he hasn’t scored in a while and does very little, bolton now play him in midfield.

    The club haven’t really done anything wrong lately and the pessimism is at an all time high.

    πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰


  7. It’s a blog, people speculate. I suggest if it winds anyone up they either ignore it or turn the internet off becuase it’s currently full of speculation πŸ˜‰


  8. I dont have the time u have to scroll through ur posts, id be asleep by 3 anyway, i jokingly say one thing about drogba hugging pardew and your creatin a debate about that alone, i read enough of this blog to know how ridiculous some of the stuff u come out with mate, like you treating the drogba comment as gospel, il just wait till u tell us all what ur informed mates tell you eh! πŸ˜€

    Also it got personal in response your derogatory accusations of me being a dreamer and how you worry for me and generally being hypocrtical.
    Anyway its saturday and im wasting it talking small talk to small people πŸ˜‰

    “Anyway its saturday and im wasting it talking small talk to small people”

    I take it you mean all of us?


  10. I know we may aswell not go on newsnow cos morons mate’s will let Sky knoe who will ley us know! πŸ˜€


  11. No, Toonsy, which part of the conversation were u invloved in?

    Correction:….a small Person!


  12. As Lennon said ” People may say that I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one”

    If you find that as a derogatory comment then i feel for you πŸ™


  13. Let me refer you to the first line you posted upon entering the thread

    “i think every1s deluded thinkin we’ll get Sturridge”

    If you are going to come one here and start slagging everyone’s opinions or speculation off, then you will get a rise off me. I don’t really care whether you like me or my posts. I don’t do them for your benefit, I do them for my own. Don’t come and slate people’s opinions if you can’t back up the reason you are with anything substantial πŸ˜‰


  14. But this is ok?

    “i think every1s deluded thinkin we’ll get Sturridge”

    Just looking to establish some boundaries here. I mean if it’s fine for everyone to be called deluded but not yourslef I need to know this going forward πŸ˜‰


  15. I posted a couple of days ago some good info regarding Sturridge signing for us, it came from the coaching staff at the club and its not bullshit.
    Whether they get him is another matter but he is definately a target.


  16. hahaha, Jobey.

    I think i’ve been stood up anyway lad. Would be good to meet a fellow toon supporter as opposed to all the ‘pool/manure/chelski/gooners fans there are here


  17. Yes well at the time the conversation which u urself were apart of was stupid, the lad hasn’t even played for Chelsea and theyve accumulated theres worst points tally since RA took charge and people were talking like we’ll be able to get him tomorrow, alls i said was to wait for him to find out whether he plays is too risky which im sure most people would agree with, we need a settled squad for the start of preseason. So what substantial evidence do you have of dismissimg the pardew drogba hand shake?

    And its a free blog i don’t have think in line with your views, who are u to tell anyone how to appraise peoples comments?


  18. “And its a free blog i don’t have think in line with your views, who are u to tell anyone how to appraise peoples comments?”



  19. Bris – Where in Brisbane are you? I use to live on Herston Rd, Kelvin Grove. Use to play golf at Vic Park almost everyday. Well the weather was condusive for golf!

    Great time i had.


  20. Jobey07, we are in for Sturridge, its not cut and dried but we are trying for him and this came from the youth within the coaching staff at the club, thats it, nothing more than that im afraid.


  21. Toonarmy87 you haven’t added any quality to the banter we try to have here but I agree with you, you should feck off and let us small people speculate our deluded veiws. Your first comment said everything about you and it’s been down hill since. πŸ™„


  22. Ooh Toonsy decided he needs to get involved, its alright for you to slag players off but no one can comment against u or other bloggers? The fact that he says im deluded for making a comment about drogba shaking AP’s hand is ridiculous! The fact that this blog is writng about speculation articles and consantly talking of people like Sturridge, gervinho and others isnt delusional pathetic bordering on delusional?

    I commented how AP and drogba hugged which is very much true as it was shown live on TB? Which part of the article and comments on Sturridge are Facts?


  23. bobby,

    keep feeding in those pearls of wisdom mate. Now I can walk round in a-matter-of-fact manner telling people you are my source and we are definitely trying to sign him! Get in! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€


  24. No way didnt realise This was a little gay blogging conventions where u three amigos stick together and all gang up on people, the fact u didnt agree with my comment. Unlucky.

    Jersey are u insulting people when they havent said anything to u, very mature, no wonder you took the small peole comment very offensively!
    Jersey if ur from jersey is there not a team down there u can go and support and use their blogs to childishly insult people u dont know?


  25. toonarmy87, my last input to you.

    Read the posts before responding.

    Your comment “so there’s probably more chance of Drogba”
    was the comment that prompted my response as you had just come on here slagging people off for being delusional!

    Have a good day tomorrow watching the match mate HTL!


  26. “The fact that this blog is writng about speculation articles and consantly talking of people like Sturridge, gervinho and others isnt delusional pathetic bordering on delusional?”

    Is it delusional or bordering? I’m confused πŸ˜•
    Sturridge is hardly so class that he’s too good for us and any thought of him coming is delusional.
    And for sometime now the articles on this site have held the opinnion that players like gervinho will not be coming here. So once again your just speeding downhill making a bigger arse of yourself with every post. Well in πŸ˜‰


  27. I get involved because, as you say, its a free blog πŸ˜‰

    Carry on insulting people fella. Deluded, gay…..

    Nice. Topps man πŸ™„


  28. You insult this blog, and all it’s bloggers with your first post and continue, and I’m supposed to sit idly by? The only reason your ganged up on is because your argument is full of holes and thus many disagree with it. If your so displeased with the content of the blog then like I said before, feck off to some more pleasing surroundings. We’re hardly struggling for good quality input and the traffic on this site speeks volumes to it’s quality, largely because people like you don’t come around often. So please don’t torture yourself. Fck off and enjoy your saturday πŸ˜‰


  29. Jobey πŸ˜†
    That was me holding back 😈
    not really bothered. I’m just allergic to dumbass… πŸ™„


  30. I assume it must be fine to call everyone then moan when people do it back then πŸ™„ πŸ˜‰

    Hypocrite of the highest order.

    As I’ve said before, if people don’t like what this site offers then there are plenty more where they can go to where they may enjoy the content. I mean it’s not like I’m pointing a gun at anyone and forcing them to come on here is it?
