Newcastle United Rubbish Transfer News Service – 35 Days To Go (68 in & 18 far!)

11 years ago

The first article I did of this kind had ’97 Days To Go’ in the title and it was a bit of fun regarding all the rubbish the press throw around during transfer windows.

Never for one minute did I think that 62 days later we still wouldn’t have made a single signing, talk about fact stranger than fiction.

Abeid – It’s All Greek to Me

The figures of 68 in and 18 out are probably way behind the times because when I got to ’54 Days To Go’ then I gave up in despair, so I have had to trawl through the tinternet looking for rubbish transfer news that I had ‘missed’.

We will still bring you the odd transfer ‘story’ if we think it is worthy of some attention, otherwise you can just rely on our daily service bringing you a round-up of all the rubbish transfer rumours.

The latest ‘Ins’ and ‘Outs’ (we’ll just add extra clubs after our players’ names as additional clubs show ‘interest’) will be added to the top of each list on a daily basis, leaving you afterwards with a rubbish transfer news free day. Here’s looking forward to close of business on 2nd September (Feel free to let us know of any we’ve missed out and just mention where you saw/heard it).

Any guesses as to how many it will be by September?
