  1. Carr motoring towards exit

    Thank christ for that, he was an awful shower of shite if ever I have seen one. Carr motoring towards exit Jun 28 2007 By Paul Gilder, The Journal Stephen Carr Stephen Carr's position at St James's Park last night appeared increasingly precarious as Sam Allardyce pursued two players whose arrivals would leave the Irishman facing a bleak first-team future. A manager whose interest in Olympique Marseille's Habib Beye is established is understood to have opened talks with Geremi, the Cameroon international who, following the expiration of his contract at Chelsea, has been offered to several Premier League clubs this summer. The Newcastle boss is keen on a player who, although comfortable in various roles, has been deployed almost exclusively at right-back during his career at Stamford Bridge. It is a position in which Beye is also accomplished and one in which Carr (pictured right) specialises. The 30-year-old faced an uncertain future even before Allardyce's targets became clear - with Nolberto Solano having proved a more than capable full-back last season and the Magpies manager keen to test Kieron Dyer in the role as he experiments with alternative formations. Story continues Continue story ADVERTISEMENT Should he succeed in his bid to add Beye and Geremi to Newcastle's first-team squad, it would be almost certain to spell the end for Carr's first-team career in the North-East. The Journal understands that, having decided that the former Tottenham defender will not be a first choice next season, Allardyce is willing to listen to offers for Carr. A player facing a future in the reserves is not expected to resist, and Celtic are understood to be interested. The United boss is still attempting to find a club willing to end Celestine Babayaro's time on Tyneside. Portuguese sources insist Sporting Lisbon have had a request to sign the African on loan rejected and are considering returning with a bid to sign the former Anderlecht player on a permanent basis. Allardyce will hope it succeeds. With Carr set to join the Nigerian in departing Tyneside, it seems as though Newcastle could embark on their next Premier League season with new full-backs on both flanks. Carr did spend time deputising for Babayaro last season, although Allardyce is determined to recruit a specialist left-footer to fill a position that has long been problematic.

    'He can shove them up his arse and fuck off for nothing' tbh
  3. Shepherd set to sell up

    Cobblers man. Shrewd business. Once Ashley fully owns the club he can get shot of Freddie if required, so what if he has to buy out a contract? The man's a billionairre. Do you think weakness get's you £2 billion? Brilliant news I reckon. The end of the beginning.
  4. Sams Summer Signings

    Trevor Sinclair still going ffs? Hurry up and get your cab license mate.

    I disagree with this. If 30 or 40 thousand average fans announce there fervent displeasure by not showing up/paying for say the first month of next season, then surely the PLC will have to move to mollify the malcontent masses? If they KNOW we are witholding our support deliberately then surely they must act? Consumer blackmail, innit?

    bugger. so there is no hope then?

    Then, perhaps, just perhaps, the board might kick Freddie out for mismanagement? Am I walking in a fantasy wonderland?
  8. Things you miss when not in the Toon

    I've lived in both cities, both are great for different reasons. Melbourne deffo better in many ways (weather for a kick off), but Newcastle has a unique feeling if you're native, whether any other city has the same feeling for natives I'll never know. Whenever I'm back in Melbourne it feels like home, but not in the way the toon does. Anyway, I live in London now so I'm clearly a twat.
