The Worst Newcastle United Transfer Rumour…So Far

9 years ago

We haven’t even reached June and my head is already battered with the relentless dredging up of ridiculous transfer ‘stories’ and then with modern media, these same stupid bits of speculation are recycled time after time, long after they were first written/made up.

I saw the amusing round-up of rumours on this website yesterday ([intlink id=”29198″ type=”post”]Special Bank Holiday Service[/intlink]) and one piece of nonsense caught my eye in particular.

Newcastle United are apparently going to ‘swoop’ and make the double signing of Loic Remy and Chris Samba from Queens Park Rangers, the figure plucked out the air is £20m for the pair.

So exactly on which planet does this make any sense whatsoever?

Both players are reported to be on one hundred grand a week, Samba is already 29 and Remy will turn 27 in January, so neither would have great resale values, if any.

Add to this, Remy is currently on Bail after an allegation of rape.

I know we follow a mad club with owners who find increasingly bizarre ways of running it but after Sam Allardyce picked Ashley’s pockets and wasted fortunes on Smith, Geremi, Viduka, Barton and so on, the last thing our owner is going to do is spend a penny more than he has to.

They say that people get the press/newspapers/media that they deserve, well we must have done something pretty horrendous in our past.
