‘Embarrassing’ – Fans react as Alan Pardew is set to beat Benitez to the signing of Daniel Sturridge

So, at 12pm today it was confirmed that we were in advanced talks to sign Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge on loan until the end of the season. Fast forward just two hours and the man who was expected to travel to Tyneside this lunchtime is now set fo a move to West Brom instead.

Not only do we now look set to miss out on a striker who would’ve been capable of firing us to safety (if he stayed fit), but we’ve missed out on him to a relegation rival and Alan Pardew of all people..

We know we’ve went massively downhill under Ashely’s ownership, but moments like this confirm just what a sorry state he’s put us in. Being from Birmingham, Sturridge’s decision may be loosely based on geographical reasons, but still..

Here’s some reactions from NUFC fans following this afternoon’s frustrating news:

Like the summer, like the takeover talks and likes this deal for Sturridge, it’s the hope that kills you.

  1. I don’t think it is embarrassing to lose out on Sturridge, it’s his choice to reject us for a team that’s just down the road from his birth town. To me looks like he would rather take his career backwards and get pardewed hope he keeps drawing his sick pay ?????


  2. Wonder how much of this saga was as a result of press coverage, if we wanted Sturridge and had reach agreement with Liverpool etc surely the famous MA helicopter should have been on standby to get him north.
    Woops forgot that’s only used for outgoing transfers.

    Pards is certainly getting his own back on Ashley and NUFC fans again
