What’s it like from a players perspective?

So long, farewell, and the rest...

Stuck in the Middle...
After the recent influx of signings from abroad, most fans are very optimistic about the coming weeks in the transfer market. However how would you feel as a player at the club, or a player that is being linked with the club?

Although as fans we often see new signings (rightly) as progress and that they will help take the team forward, it doesn’t always have a positive effect on the players. On the one hand they will be excited about the chance of playing football with new, skilled players and this will in turn improve their game.

On the other hand though, seeing players that play in the same position as you being brought in can be tough to deal with. For example the likes of Best, Barton and Jonas play in the same position as Ba, Cabaye and Marveaux which could send out the wrong signals to the players.

If I was one of those three players, I would certainly be worried for my future at the club, as the new signings look very much like replacements. This coupled with the fact that rumours have been flying round that Best is now available for purchase and the fact Barton’s future has been in doubt for some time now, it doesn’t exactly fill you full of confidence on keeping them does it?

Also if you were a player that was being linked with a move to Newcastle, how would you feel?

For every negative there is a positive, and players contemplating a move here will in my opinion be greatly encouraged by the progress we have already made in the short time the transfer window is open. It is always a good thing to know the place you are going has ambition and drive, and I believe we have shown that so far.

One other thing I always wondered was whether players actually take any notice of the latest rumours enshrouding them and their club. Personally I doubt very much whether they do because simply most of what is written is nonsense and also talk of teammates leaving and so on could lead to a drop of morale. So much so in fact, that I wouldn’t be surprised if players are told by their managers to ignore everything unless it is a solid fact?

So whilst it must be good to put your feet up for a few weeks as a player, transfer season can’t exactly be their favourite time of year either can it? Well unless your called Andy Carroll, but that’s a different story…

  2. Spencer – Then just ignore it surely? Have you ever thought that the only reason it gets done is because you react to it? The C-word is a vulgar word man. I don;t mind swearing on here, odd considering it’s a Stepford Wives ‘blog and that, but don’t use that word. A lot of people don’t like it 😉


  3. I dont like the C word, and I try to ignore it, but its all the time, it dosent get to me in as much as it doesnt make me upset, but i am very short tempered at times 😆


  4. I apologise Spencer and will refrain from commenting on matters regarding you until you find your sense of humour 😉


  5. I dont care what you say about me, just annoys me when you say stuff about my mum and dad 🙂


  6. toonsy,

    Toot toot, is that the reality train pulling up ❓
