  1. Surprise deal for Townsend Andy? Krul to Watford is a bit of a surprise though. I’m not quite understanding why we won’t just buy Andros especially as they still owe installments on the deal.

  2. Surprise in the sense he’s only been there 5 minutes and might be heading back. I don’t know too much about Watford though, is Gomes struggling over there?

  4. Ice – Reading getting a few in too.

    Stuart – talk about stating the obvious. Bit like saying you have right wing leanings 🙂

  5. I lean a bit to the right. Trump is a doofus but these protests serve no other purpose than for people to look virtuous. The fact that these same people remain quiet on a whole host of other issues tells you all you need to know…

  6. The majority of the UK is probably more right than left. It’s just that the liberal left are noisier. I wouldn’t necessarily agree with all of Trumps policies as some of them are just as idiotic as the lefts policies just on the opposite end of the spectrum.

    My political views can be summed up like this; I don’t think the West is the answer to the rest of the worlds problems and we shouldn’t be made to feel bad by the social justice warriors just because I think we should look after our own citizens and country before looking at every other Tom, Dick and Abdul.

    Understand #CPFC now ready to do a deal with #NUFC for @andros_townsend but have they left it too late? Less than 10 hours. Follow on #SSNHQ

  9. Stuart – I’ll leave off the politics thing as it doesn’t really suit a football blog.
    Looks like they’ll finally do a deal for Andros. Can’t understand Sam’s thinking on this one. The lad’s a hard worker and he’ll not have time to re-spend the money.
    Having said that, he’s in the squad on the way to Bournemouth.

  10. SSN now saying NUFC happy to pay the £13m release clause for Townsend – looks like it’s a permanent deal then.

    I’m pleased about that coz I would wonder what message a loan deal would send to Townsend.

    Nowt done yet, but a step closer hopefully.

  11. Sharpy I hope the deal goes threw but Palace still haven’t paid him. This deal doesn’t make any sense. Are Palace still going to pay 3 million pound installment’s after we buy him back ?

  12. Stuart79:
    According to Sky we’re still haggling with Palace over the price. Isn’t it incredible.

    club is a nightmare fighting over a couple of mil ffs,well if it happens Townsend does not need to be in this area as toon are forgoing the need of a medical,he just needs to sign which is done by fax

      (Quote)

  13. I have no problem with the club haggling to be fair – as long as we sign him in the end, why shouldn’t they thrash out the best possible deal.

  14. Doubt it will happen but I’d love to see us try & loan Ulloa from Leicester. They don’t want to sell to a PL rival & have knocked back £7.5m plus from the Scum.
    But as a result, Ulloa is super pissed off with Leicester and has fallen out with Ranieri.

      (Quote)

  15. The fact that The Sky guy as moved to Middlesbrough from St James’ Park says pretty much everything I would imagine.

      (Quote)

  16. Ulloa might be worth a try Sharpy mate. Has good football sense and has been badly treated at Leicester (only 1 match played so far this season????). I wouldn’t mind him in the lineup although he is 30.

  17. Palace busy working on their incomings first – midfielder just signed & they are working on Kone from Everton & possibly Sakho from Lpool.
    The Townsend deal will happen before the window closes.

      (Quote)

  18. Andros looks happy enough with his team mates on the pitch before game. Pretty sure nowts happening not that it ever really looked likely. It’s like groundhog day just with a different name.

      (Quote)

  19. A fair bit of movement except by us so far. Frustrating. Is this game playing by Charnley and Ashley worth it? It seems ridiculous to me. Get on with it. Most other clubs are managing to complete deals.

  20. Betting on Townsend to toon was 1/6 now its out to 7/2,cannot see deal going to happen hes on the bench would only leave 1 hour to do deal,it isnt going to happen,good old jabba ffs

  21. Townsend might not want to leave? Anyway, if it doesn’t come off I hope they get relegated and we go after someone else in the summer..

      (Quote)

  22. It is embarrassing. Players will get the message as well. I hope the team’s performance won’t be affected much tomorrow. We need a win. Or we can scare the club owner a little bit by losing it. 👿

      (Quote)

  23. So no support for the club, Rafa or the supporters from Ashley. Fairly typical. A good way to lose Rafa Ashley. What would the backup plan be then?

      (Quote)

  24. But we’re not even in first place ice mate. How could Ashley think everything is sorted? The man is mad. He always has been. No feel for the game at all. It’s just business for him, not passion. If he loses Rafa interest will decline and we’ll stagger around with some clueless twit that Charnley and Ashley pick up in the summer. Pointless charade. Let’s hope the Townsend deal is rescued at the last minute but I have no confidence going into summer.

  25. Sharpy, Townsend is on the bench and you think he will still sign for us? Can I have a pint of what you’ve had please?

    To think anybody doubted me. As soon as Jabba got involved it was never going to be plain sailing.

    Personally I wouldn’t blame Rafa if he walked. In fact i would go as far as saying I would recommend that he does walk. It won’t change – Jabba is incapable of change. This is what Rafa has to put up with while being manager under Jabba.

    the old saying is better the devil you know but after 9 yrs of his underhand tricks i would take chinese owners

  31. A never ending mess with Ashley. This can’t be good. Rafa will not be used to this type of nonsense from ownership. If you bring in someone like Benitez you have to support him or it’s all over except the tears.

  32. Chinese owner’s for me too Ice. I would of been delighted with the Manchester City owner’s but Ashley is a selfish __nt

    wow! Shame on him, and he did it again! Stay away from this guy. He is a liar.

      (Quote)

  34. I don’t buy this better the devil you know bull ****. He’s amongst the very worst owners in this country. We can’t achieve anything while he’s here and to be frank about it, Rafa will now understand what’s in store for him. He’ll be gone – probably in the summer as Jabba certainly does not match Rafa’s ambition.

  36. So I take Jabba is in the bad books again. Talk about fickle …

    Consortium or Ashley… serious answers this time…

  37. Not signing Townsend in and of itself isn’t the worry tonight. It is the message Rafa has been given. He is promised the world and then given nothing.

    Before people mention the summer signings – we still did an Ashley special and made a profit selling our “best” players.

    Rafa is given some backing then has it all taken back by the other hand and now, when Ashley thinks he is safe, he is back to his usual ****.

    I only hope the injuries stay away this season as we’re ****ed otherwise. I hope even the most optimistic have given up on the “walking the division” idea.

    LATEST UPDATE: The vibes from people on both sides of Townsend talks are that a deal is now “unlikely”… #NUFC

    Like it ever was 🙄

    STUART was right weeks ago he said now jabba is back in on transfers we would spend nothing

    A lot of us were right Ice. I also said it’s easy parting with money from sissy, Gini etc but will he back Rafa IF we get promoted… why would he ? He just loaned us money. We have nobody decent to sell.. Rafa will walk by September

    Jabba is obviously hoping Rafa Walks so he can bring back puppet Pards.Watch this space come summer.

    There is no way Pardew would be welcomed back here. Jabba is more likely to get Moyes once they’re relegated

    Agree. He won’t like Rafa. They have completely different view on the club, and Rafa has the backing of fans. He would see Rafa as a threat to his power.

  42. Well I’m not going to get too disheartened by Townsend not signing.
    Let’s see how ashley backs Rafa before we get excited.

    IF he isn’t backed I’m finished with Newcastle until Ashley is removed
