realistic transfer targets in/out

Recommended Posts

so with the legendary scouting network already understaffed and overstretched, we as newcastle fans could probably do the club some favours by seeing if there are any out of contract players available to us that would improve the team.

 

as we don't know the budget for transfers maybe we could put a fictional £10million in the pot as well...

 

this is a chance for you and me to help shape the team (in theory)

 

also which players do we need to release.

Ben Haim and Heinze are realistic, as is Baines at a push. Alves is never going to happen, Liverpool were quoted something daft like £12m and while he looks a class act we won't be in for him.

 

I'll be disappointed if we get Distin on a free, though. Very over-rated imo.

Ben Haim would got to a better club than us, possibly Chelsea if Mourinho stays.

 

I wouldn't want Heinze, I think he's been average since he done his knee in.

We'll never get rid of Carr and Baba either. :lol: Not until they are free agents or we pay them off anyway, I think.

 

Emre might go for a 1/2 decent price though.

Hamburg fans probably said exactly the same thing before they signed him for just £3.5m.

If van der Vaart is going to leave I think that Bayern will move heaven and earth to get him. vdV is somewhat injury prone but a fantastic player.

 

I wouldn't mind his Dutch colleague Sneijder tbh who might more realistic.

 

Kompany has been injured for most of the season and his first games in the season showed that he needs some time to adapt to a bigger league.

I've stopped naming players to come in now because that's the coaches/scouts' jobs. If we take it that Bernard, Srnicek, Moore, probably one of Bramble & Onyewu, Luque & Emre are probably on their way, and then you have positions where we're just p*ss poor, (full-back positions in particular).

 

So...we'll have....

 

Given, Harper, Krul. No real problems there.

Solano, Carr...two ageing players, one not a natural full-back, the other just not very good anymore

Babayaro, Huntington...one not a natural full-back, the other just not very good anymore

Taylor, Ramage, Bramble/Onyewu...inexperienced and lacking quality

Milner, Dyer...Fine.

Duff, N'Zogbia...Fine.

Parker, Butt...Decent players, no strength in depth.

Owen, Martins, Ameobi, Sibierski...Two quality players, one decent, one not-so-good.

 

I reckon we need, in order of importance...
