I want Joey to weigh in with goals: Big Sam

Recommended Posts

Sam Allardyce is looking to Joey Barton to bring his goals to Newcastle United.

 

Barton was expected at St James' Park today to complete his £5.5m move from Manchester City to United.

 

And, before flying to London to tie up the signing of Mark Viduka, the United boss told me: "With Joey coming in and Scott Parker going out to West Ham, I would say this is a piece of good business for us.

 

"Now we have Michael Owen, Mark Viduka and Oba Martins, who all score goals, and Joey usually chips in with seven or eight a season from midfield, so we will really be expecting to improve our goals tally next season."

 

From a numerical point of view, Barton will be a straight replacement for Parker, who has gone back to London in a £7m deal to join his former Charlton boss Alan Curbishley at Upton Park.

 

Earlier United had lost out on Steve Sidwell after the-then Reading midfielder had twice made hush-hush trips to Tyneside and actually twice sat in Glenn Roeder's office at the training ground.

 

Sidwell shook hands on a move to United but obviously felt that Roeder's departure gave him a get- out and he has joined Chelsea.

 

Meanwhile, the appearance of Sam Allardyce at Wales game with the Czech Republic at Cardiff at the weekend has thrown up a couple of possibilities.

 

The United boss had a close look at Paris St Germain's Czech defender David Rozenhal, but there is a lot of talk in Cardiff that Welsh international midfielder Jason Koumas could also be a target.

 

Former United striker Malcolm Allen, who is now a leading commentator for the BBC in Wales, believes that Koumas is good enough to come to St James' Park from West Brom.

 

But I get the impression that Big Sam is concentrating on improving United's much-maligned defence.

 

Next season's Premiership fixtures will be released a week today, and The Chronicle will be the first newspaper to carry United's games for 2007-8.

"Now we have Shola Ameobi, Michael Owen, Mark Viduka and Oba Martins, who all score goals, and Joey usually chips in with seven or eight a season from midfield, so we will really be expecting to improve our goals tally next season."

 

Surely that's what he meant?
