Why oh why can't we pay the 3 million for Nugent?  <_<

Nugent may be a good player, but from what I've seen he hasn't got the physical presence we should be looking for. What we need is a big man up front.

You've been watching a different David Nugent.

 

He reminds me of Dave Kitson whenever I see him, which is a good thing.

 

Won't be prolific, but better than we have available.

Anyone else hoping to hell that Woodgate chooses us over Boro for his loan season? :lol:

I am, I'm also hoping we get another midfielder in, even if it's not Gravesen.

SSN has just reported that Woodgate's expected loan move to Boro is up in the air as it's been confirmed he'll be coming to talk to Newcastle after he's been to the Riverside...

Seem to remember another Real player coming in similar circumstances, let's hope it doesn't end the same.
