  1. Transfer gossip 2019/20

    Is anyone on "pay as you play"? See it all the time a perma-crock is available but never heard of anyone actually signing that deal. Especially in PL football that's flush with cash and desperation to not fall off the gravy train.
  2. Salomon Rondon

    Local journo's on Twitter were saying that the package (transfer fee, wages and agents fees) had scared off the interested Premier League teams. When the likes of West Ham won't take a punt on him, maybe there's something to it.

    Steve Nickson, by what little has been mentioned in the press he and Rafa worked well together. When Rafa was wanting a new keeper after Selz didn't pan out Nickson pitched Dubravka and Rafa agreed. The current story is that Nickson and Charnley were far more keen on Joelinton, even at this price, than Rafa was. Local press this morning were hinting that Rondon's demands/agents fee were putting off Premier League clubs from taking a punt on him too.

    James Coppinger made a decent fist of things at Doncaster. Paul Huntingdon had a spell at Leeds.

    What's the current requirements for a work permit? Because I wouldn't put it past our lot to fall at that final hurdle.

    Can see this Joelinton thing coming off. They've been withholding big money from Rafa, on the whole, and Nickson was pushing for him as far back as January. It'll be a "look at what Rafa could have had to spend" narrative.

    https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/fan-unrest-no-signings-no-16582341 Another good one on the futility of the club under Ashley. Even if Bruce could do a good job he'd get no further help from those above. He'd not be able to alter their thinking in any way.

    I wonder if it'll ever click with him that he's the one doing football ownership wrong, not everyone else.

    The return of the "incentive based" contract. Paying a manager a million to stay in the PL when it's worth hundreds of millions to the club. https://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/sport/17769337.steve-bruce-involved-5m-wrangle-newcastle/

    Probably the best Chronicle article of the week. Bonus of Ryder being huffy in the thread too.
  11. The Secret Diary of Lee Ryder (aged 44 and a half)

    Anyone for mangled cliches?

    I see The Trinity Mirror Regional Sports Journalist of the Year 2014 has seen off the young pretender to his throne, Waughy is going to be covering NUFC for someone else.

    Redfearn was a midfielder for Barnsley for most of the 1990's. They had a season in the Premier League but were relegated and he had another season when he moved to Charlton. He's done some managing, notably at the mad house that is Leeds. He helped out with reserves earlier this season when Beardsley was suspended.
  15. Bruce Manager of NUFC

    Neil Redfearn & Ben Dawson. Youth Team/Academy guys. Simon Smith is GK coach and is still there as he wasn't one of Rafa's core group of coaches he takes from club to club.
