Relief That One Newcastle Target Ruled Out
On a happier note, one player we can’t/shouldn’t be signing is ex-Smoggie Jeremie Aliadiere, who Newcastle were linked with in the summer as Ashley failed to bring in any strikers.
His current coach/manager of French club FC Lorient, Christian Gourcuff, has said;
“I know Jeremie’s wife is missing England a lot but I know Jeremie will still be here on February 1st. Losing such a decisive player in the middle of a season would be an aberration. If Jeremie were to leave we would have money but money won’t replace the player.
That excludes any January transfer whatever the fee is, in June it would be different”.
At least we can look forward to the summer and compete to buy rubbish strikers like Aliadiere to try and help us crawl out of the Championship.
