Newcastle United Message Board
the transfer rumours are spreading again as most leagues come to the end. this is the time for us (toon army) sit back and think well who should go and leave.
as expected, i think the duo (viduka and barton) will be the 1st signing in this summer. i have no comment about viduka, as he could serve as both first eleven and substitute well, i think so. but i would rather be doubtful about the signing of joey. to b honest, i personally dont think he will be a key midfielder in team. i watched him played quite few games in the season just end, he's definitely not the ideal one.
I question about why nufc never say anything about one of the most talented players-- ajax's sneijder. his deal with valencia has just been turned down. y not we attempt on him. he is aggressive in attacking. that's what we need!
I don't know why...well I do cos he's class...but in addition to the desperately needed CD, I would like to see Francesco Totti or similar. Somebody with flair and passion to give us a few more creative options from middle field.
You cannot doubt his talent and for anyone that saw man usa play Roma, he was the only one still playing with his head up and like his life depended on it even though Roma were taking a battering and the poor guy was clearly humiliated. But he carried on, gave it his all and never gave up. He isn't a Geordie but I would like to think those are the qualities we look for in somebody that pulls on the black and white stripes.
Determination, commitment, flair, passion add any superlatives you like. i think he's excellent and would be a fantastic addition to a creatively stagnant midfield.
That's what i think anyway. but I guess there is some contractual thing that will keep him at Roma for the rest of his years. One can only dream.
I agree with what you say about getting an attacking midfielder (I disagree about Barton I think he will be a good signing!) but I think going for Wesley Sneijder might be over reaching slightly!!
That being said, I think we should bring in Baines, Rozenthal, Ben-Haim, Luke Young from Charlton and (when Ashley's takevover goes through) get Wright-Phillips from Chelsea, they reckon that Chelsea will let him go for around 10 million.
