Lazy link, never gunna happen.

*spins roulette wheel*   clink, clink, clink.   Newcastle linked with SENSATIONAL move for GEORDIE Andy Carroll.

 

"Ben Arfa responded when the whole team was asked to give their opinions after a third successive defeat without scoring. He said the team was too direct. There was a row with Pardew and a confrontation which ended with Shola Ameobi removing Ben Arfa from the dressing room."

 

 

Is this common knowledge? Do not remember reading this earlier after the 4-nil defeat.

New details, but a confrontation was reported.

In the least surprising news of the day, the 'meet and greet' has been cancelled. You have to imagine that will be on the back of some strong words from the club, and most likely the police. Can't say I'm disappointed. We could do without the inevitable shitstorm it would have created.

Went along this afternoon. Hatem was a class above the rest. Honestly looked in great shape, its a disgrace if pardew confines him to the wilderness when were not scoring goals. He was leaving some of readings young lads for dead in straight sprints and looked really fit. Sammy looked nowhere near premier league standard neither did bigi. Vukic was okay just lacks a yard of pace and Adam armstrong looked good. Always showed for the ball, decent link up play and showed electric pace. Shades of Bellamy when we first got him playing on the shoulder and missed a few chances just like him too.

 

Jak alnwick must have came and missed every single cross by a mile, made a few saves but I think hes 21 or so now and will probably go to league 2 or so at the end of the yr. Elsewhere no other decent showings, bigi was mediocre and satko at cb looks far too lightweight.

Hopefully that new fitness coach we brought in might help condition players properly so that they're suitable for their positions. It's something we have only recently started to address I think. Hatem was looking overweight last season, that should have been nipped in the bud. The new fitness coach, then the recent 'overweight fine' - I think it's definitely an area the club recongises needed improving.
