Every done deal & where NUFC ‘targets’ ended up as transfer window shuts – 5 in, 20 out

That’s it folks. The 11pm deadline has passed and with that the summer transfer window has slammed shut for another year.

Without further ado, here’s all the ins and outs we’ve seen over the summer, covering everything from U-23’s (*), senior signings, the Toon ‘targets’ who didn’t come off and the Newcastle players who missed out on moves away:

  1. I am astonished what how well the smaller teams in the league have spent the cash and on the back of the pandemic. Yet the pandemic has affected nufc worse than anyone else? We cant even afford loan deals? No doubt we will hear soon enough the broke Mike Ashley will be finding the cash to buy another distressed lemon of a business that only he can turn around? Sick to my back teeth of the lot of it, its beyond disgusting.


  2. B0ll0cks – we got 1 in ONE.

    I understand he doesn’t want the club, but to not even sanction loan fees for 2 first team additions is just a disgrace (I say 2 coz that’s all we can loan from PL clubs).

    You reap what you sow.


  3. Why include players signed for the u23 in the list of incoming? The truth is we signed 1 player – 1. I don’t have high hopes for the u23 players either, look at the ones we signed last year for proof. Bruce and Ashley are a fucking disgrace.
