Newcastle NOT interested in Sturridge?

No interest in Sturridge.
According to the back page of The Chronicle it would appear that Newcastle have no interest in signing Daniel Strurridge.

This was leaked in an early edition of the publication which I struggled to read, but it’s up now in all it’s glory. Readable or not, if you take away all of the fluff and tinsel all that is left is the glaring fact that NUFC are not even considering entering the race to sign arguably the hottest young, English striker on the block at the moment.

In my view it’s a damning indictment of the transfer policy in place currently at St James’ Park. The policy is packaged as one that will not see us splash cash on players that will only lose value and only buy young, hungry players that will improve. Sturridge would fit the latter mould, no doubt.

At a rumoured £15 million it would be a steal as he has proven that he can score goals in the Premier League. It’s a no-brainer. So why aren’t we interested? Why oh why are we not even enquiring about him?

Before I go on too much of a rant, it’s worth pointing out that it is The Chronicle and it only “understands” the stance on Sturridge, but it certainly doesn’t paint a great picture does it? We need a goalscorer – Sturridge is a goalscorer, that even fits the criteria of our apparent transfer policy. Baffling.

Being honest, it’s probably the price tag that has put us off even looking at Sturridge. As one blogger said this morning “eight-figure syndrome”. As well as our players being young and hungry, they must also not cost over £5 million or something ridiculous like that. I don’t mind that so much, but if a player comes along who is worth it then I’d like to think we’d at least try and sign him.

Apparently not.

  17. How confident am I that @MsiDouglas is wrong re Zog, if he doesn’t sign for #nufc this summer I’ll delete my twitter account

    From Cwarr a while back. Well that can only end well either way 😆


  18. why do you think we havent put an offer in for barnetta yet cos pardews waiting to see what happens with charles


  19. We will buy Carlton Cole if we can sell Barton and Jose. Ashley will not buy unless he can cover that money with sales. Forget about the 35 million you`ll see none of that. Cole is the type Pardew is looking for and will suit Ashley`s pocket. Even the unwashed have splashed the cash on somebody who fits our profile. It`s no good waiting until the end of the window and finding all that is left is the rubbish that nobody wants ie Keane from Spurs.


  20. we wont buy cole and if he signs for us you can barricade me with insults cole is a no go

    @Toontastic1892 We need 6 in 2xST,RB,LB,CB,RW £35/6= £5.83m. To sign Sturridge it would take 1/3 of the budget. So no is my answer.

  25. Really couldn’t give a toss about speculative press nonsense. The Chronic isn’t the best barometer for the ambition of the club.
