Following the deflating 3-0 home defeat to Brighton, in classic NUFC Hotspot fashion, we attempt to put a positive spin on the result. We know, we feel sorry for us too!
With our summer transfer window leaving us with this weird optimistic feeling, we wanted to dig down deeper into who we believe was our second most important signing, Jamal Lewis.
On the eve of the new Premier League season, NUFC have announced Isaac Hayden has extended his contract until 2026, while Karl Darlow is now contracted to the club until 2025.
As I write this, we’ve had confirmation that NUFC have had a bid of £20m accepted for Callum Wilson. With just the agreement of personal terms, and completion of a medical required before the England international can officially become a Newcastle United player.
In the latest set of rumours circulating the North East, it is reported that Matt Ritchie will be used in a combined player and cash deal for Bournemouth striker, Callum Wilson. If the club do manage to get this deal ‘over the line’ it would mark the end the era for the Scot’s angry, yet wildly entertaining spell in the North East.
With it confirmed that Martin Dubravka has been ruled out for two months, we assess who will start our new campaign between the sticks.
If recent reports are to be believed, we may soon be adding Steve Bruce to this list as the Newcastle United manager is said to be “buying British” during the upcoming transfer window.
With the transfer window open, and confusion still reigning over the ownership of Newcastle United, we are potentially in a very vulnerable position. If rival clubs were to lure our players away from the North East for their current Market Value, would we be getting a fair deal?
As of midnight on July 31st, Matty Longstaff was no longer contracted to Newcastle United. We have ran this situation through our head many times since, attempting to decide whether it was the correct decision as we were met with conflicting thoughts.
In this edition of NUFC Hotspot Opinions we give our views on the best transfer window our club has witnessed under the stewardship of Mike Ashley. Hopefully when the takeover finally gets completed, transfers windows can soon revert to being periods of anticipation and excitement for our fans, rather than frustrations and gloom.
