Twitter gossip…. One winger and one keeper to join?

Tweet tweet
We all love a bit of gossip, well I know I do anyway, especially when it comes to NUFC!

I’m fully aware that most of it is complete tosh, but I still can’t keep away from it. Like a fat kid in cake shop (I’m ready for the jokes!), I get drawn to it and just have to have a look and a good old chinwag about it. So basically I’ve found a bit of gossip for us all to deliberate over. Many of you will remember the name cwarr07, but if you don’t he is the infamous Twitter chap who gave a lot of people the heads up on certain deals with regard to transfers in and out at NUFC.

Now I’ll be the first to say that I’m always sceptical, but to be fair to whoever it is he called the permanent transfer of Hatem Ben Arfa before it happened as well as the Stephen Ireland loan deal and confirmed the Andy Carroll transfer before it happened. Now I’m not saying he is constantly right, but he has called a few specific deals right.

Anyway, my point is that he has opened up again and has posted this (below) on his Twitter account today. Make of it what you will, but to me there is one name that screams out to me there,
and that is Kieron Westwood from Coventry.

If that is the case then quite what it means for our other goalkeepers will remain to be seen. Forster to Celtic maybe? We’ve been linked with Westwood before so perhaps it’s just me putting two and two together and coming up with five? Westwood is out of contract in the summer and is unlikely to be offered a new deal due to the current troubles at Coventry City.

As for the winger, pass. I’ve no doubt that Seb Larsson will be mentioned as he is out of contract although I was under the impression that no deal could be discussed between two clubs in the same FA until one month before the current deal is due to expire? Mind you, it would be a bit naive to disregard anyone talking to anyone else in a ‘hush hush’ kind of arrangement. Let’s face it, it happens.

So what do you make of it? Just more random gossip or is there something more to it?

  1. Ice I forgot about that you need to get at that Richie one to get it back before he ****s of to Spain.
    Thats if he still has it as I heard he swapped it for a case of beer and a kebab

  2. I kind of understand why we would be after Westwood actually if it’s true.

    Firstly, I think Pardew will totally stamp his own ideas on the club in the summer and no position will be ‘off bounds’ if he thinks he could get a great deal for a player. No matter how much we believe the keeper position is no go. Pardew has brought his own ideas and I don’t think he has much care about what previous regimes have done.

    I DO think Krul and Forster are good shot stoppers and both have a future at the top level but I think even their biggest supporters would have to admit neither would be ready to be our first choice next season. It is not so much their shot stopping but kicking, decision making and lack of experience that makes them not quite ready IMHO.

    Harper has been a great servant and at times is a good steady head at the back but if we are being completely honest is he really that great. And is he what Pardew wants to build for the future and his potential 5 year contract, (Harper is now 36)

    Ok so that is the keepers we are talking about that are potentially no.1 next season…. Keiren Westwood is 26 and the current ROI goalkeeper. I must admit I havn’t seen much of him at all to be honest but he seems to be quite good by all accounts.

    Anyway what I’m trying to say is that, should we have this sentiment and kind of engrained psyche that ‘we are well stocked and couldn’t improve’ in an area. Im suggesting we probably could and we should be open minded about it.

  4. Witters yeah mate and I hope young Airey keeps banging them in 😉
    Ice I would believe Batty then im just surprised that Richie would stoop so low, but then he has sold out on his hometown so nowt should be surprising

  6. Also thats maybe why John Carver was at the Ireland game, to watch Westwood at international level. 😉

  7. 😆 😆
    Yeah, I replied asking whether it was Westwood and Puncheon, and he’s not replied

  8. Marcel Desailly the big proud Ghanian he is that proud of his country that he turned his back on them for France I cant stand pricks like that 👿

  9. I hate the way Sunderland fans are saying they have 4 players representing them tonight… They really have 1, the rest are on loan but let them believe 🙄

  10. Ice 😆 I just cant stand that c@nt I seen him at the world cup always **** talking about how proud he was of Ghana, I’m sure Ghana arn’t that proud of that Judas **** pot.
    I cant stand that c@nt Fab the wab

  11. What has Andy Carroll done since his last cap to get picked tonight? Move to Liverpool?

    Kevin Nolan should be a first choice for England at the moment, since he has ate and shyt the combined seasons for Lampard and Gerrard so far.

    Then against, he plays north of Manchester so I guess he doesn’t exist.

  12. It’s fustrating Capello ignores our players but it is better for us, no chance of injury or other teams getting a better look at them.

  13. It’s funny, I don’t care about the England team at all yet I get wound up when valid, deserving players are ignored. Same for any national team really.

    It’s geography-ist.

  14. Looking at Carrolls face makes me hate him even more. The sooner he suffers a horrible injury the better, hopefully Tiote does him when we play Liverpool.

  15. Not seen any coverage of the fact it was a German in the Brazilian section of the crowd and not a Scottish fan who threw the banana at Neymar.

    Convenient.

  16. Anyone think Carroll will start the game against us in May?

    It’s at a delicate part of our season, depending on how results go and I’d hate to think he scores a goal that drops us in the crap, lol.

    It would be ironic.

  17. I was hoping Liverpool would keep him on the softly softly for a few weeks yet but the game is a month away and I imagine he will be starting by then.

    I can see Taylor having a pop though. It’s written in the stars.

  18. FJ – Not at the premium price that 20 good games and an England call up brings. Why the last person with such pedigree sold for £35 million 😉

  19. I am assuming it will turn out to be Seb Larsson – if it is true.

    He is an international, he is free, he is in the age range and we are proven to be interested considering we bid in January.

    Ed will blow his stuff in a blog if that signing comes through, lol.

  20. I would like to have Larsson but we couldnt agree terms in Januray, it would be up to him to bring his demands down.

      (Quote)

  21. Larsson’s demands wouldn’t be an issue in the summer as we won’t have to pay £1.5m to sign him in the first place. The transfer money would go to boosting any sign on he wants.

  22. I never wish injuries on anyone…..except about 4 of the ****ers playing tonight 😉 😆 😆

  27. Let’s face it- as much as I want to see AC fail, he’s going to be a force for LPool and England for the next decade.

      (Quote)

  28. disagree, cos if he’s a success he’ll move again chasing the cash, he won’t stay at any club for that length of time 😉
