Gorgeous Gomes for 22m is just sensational business. Particularly in today's market where I maintain I'm worth at least £500,000. 

It's an outrageously cheap fee for a player of that quality. Everton basically had a pedal all over Bareclona's back and made them clean up the mess.

How do you manage to keep buying players from Barca on the cheap? I'd be chuffed wth Gomes and wouldn't bat an eyelid if we parted £40m for a player of his quality. That's a brilliant signing.

Marcel Brands is a master negotiator that's how, to get Gomes, Digne and Mina for a grand total of £62m is brilliant business, hell just the former two alone for £34m is incredible in itself

We're fucked. Expecting this takeover to collapse any day now too.

 

I've never believed that takeover at all, isn't it the same every year?

I know it's commonplace for fans to moan about their owners these days, but fuck me I don't half feel for you lot. The potential for Newcastle to be a major force again is there and Carrier Bay Mike is standing in the way of that. Dave Whelan was right about him all those years ago.

Some of the names being chucked around aren’t surprising, but I think the most interesting of the bunch are Jose, Keane and Gatusso.

I’d love to see Gatusso managing over here. When he left his Milan job he refused a big leaving pay off from the club and asked he paid it to his training staff instead. He’d do a world of good for teams requiring a more disciplined defence.

However,  that wasn’t the major issue for Newcastle last season. Their goalS against wasn’t that bad in the scheme of things, they lacked Gary Goals more than anything else (bar the last game of the season).

That said, I can’t for 1 second believe Jose is interested in Newcastle, especially given his relationship with owners of clubs in general.

Keane quit his job the day before, but I don’t think he’s the answer either.

Out of the favourites, I hope they do go for Gatusso and give him a shot. In a perfect world Ashley will fuck off and Shearer would be willing to assist Gatusso.

More chance of Vince McMahon fucking off the XFL to go on the pull with Beardsley.

the only way they'd get Jose is if that rich Arab took over. he ain't gonna work under Ashley.

So, it remains silly season at Newcastle regarding the managers job. Everyone from Wenger and Mourinho to some no mark from the MLS have been mentioned in the last few days.

The interesting names that keep popping up, to me at least, are Mikel Arteta and Giovanni Von Bronckhurst. Von Bronckhurst has a good track record in Holland, for what it's worth, and certainly played for some excellent coaches and Arteta knows the league inside out and again has worked in some excellent systems. Newcastle would be a rough first 'proper' job though, especially in the current climate.
