Sky Sports are at least partially responsible for turning transfer deadline day into the circus that it is currently.
They will no doubt have reporters camped outside training grounds around the country and Jim White will no doubt be fizzing about how the transfer window is “marvellous entertainment”.
Ask Newcastle fans about that!
David Craig will be somewhere looking dazed, confused and a little bit like an older version of Tim nice but Dim from the Harry Enfield program. It’s going to be another mad one for sure.
But if you can’t beat them, join them is how the saying goes. That is why we’ll be running a live transfer ‘blog from around 11am to right up until the transfer window slams shut at 11pm tomorrow evening so we can keep you up to speed with the goings on, rumours and any transfer titbits that happen to come to our attention.
Of course there is still a chance that we could see some players arrive at Newcastle on deadline day. It’s more based on hope on my part as the form book suggests that I should be watching the ‘out’ door and not the ‘in’ door, but if you haven’t got a bit of hope then what are you left with? Here’s hoping we manage to keep hold of our key players. Quite simply we’ve lost enough of them recently.
So all you have to do is turn on, tune in to us and let us take the strain out of deadline day. You can even bookmark the page so you can go away and do something (like work, maybe?) and come back a bit later to see what has happened and what has failed to happen. Or both.
We look forward to seeing you here on NUFC Blog
