Can we just get something clear. Toontastic.net isn't like these other forums where you can just waltz in and suddenly make friends with people. We're snobby, rather perpetual and overall cliquey. 

Aye cheers man, may as well sack the chemo off now

So a loan with an option to buy for a price we wont pay no doubt 

 

Can't be disappointed with having him back for at least another season, he changed our outlook as soon as he signed last season. He felt like the piece of the jigsaw Rafa's system was missing. As said we desperately need some strikers now.

We need 1 possibly 2 premiership proven strikers 

Not that I disagree or owt but don’t you think getting Kenedy on the terms announced above is a good deal? That it’s not a smokescreen in other words?

Rafa's gone anyway unless our fairy godmother deigns to shine her light in our direction again.

 

Just enjoy the season that's in it.

Aye, we've effectively stood still so far. We had Dubravka and Kenedy last season and we've swapped Merino for Ki.

 

 

Didn't have them from the start of last season though.

At least we haven’t gone backwards. I can’t remember a summer when I wasn’t disappointed by this lot.

Aye, we know enough about him and the buy clause must surely be an amount Chelsea are happy to sell him for so I can’t see us buying him at the end of the loan if we could just sign him permanently now for that price. 

If Ashley wasn’t a monumental cunt you could make an argument it’s structuring deals so that we can spend more now and buy Kenedy once we get another year of PL money in, but he is so we won’t. 

 

Don’t get me wrong I like Kenedy, I’m just not a fan of loaning players repeatedly like this as in a year we’re still needing a winger. If he has a brilliant season there’s also the chance he turns us down and moves somewhere else. If the price is 20M it’s a no brainer to just sign him now as we’d get that at the very least selling him on, these are the sort of moves I can’t wrap my head round with the fat knocker that owns Newcastle.

Under the Ashley regime I've learned not to look past the immediate season as things always change very quickly at the club, just look at last season as prime example. In a few months we went from battling relegation to talk of a European spot. It's best just to look at the here and now, and Kenedy for another campaign is a good signing. Prefer him to Townsend.
