7 years ago

Look, I know we are all excited because unbelievably Newcastle United have actually bought a player, but there are limits as to how we should all be treating this signing of Ayoze Perez…Spanish Second Division striker for £1.6m.

The Chronicle for example came up with this headline and write up;

Revealed: The long list of clubs Newcastle United beat to sign Ayoze Perez

The Chronicle understands that United had stiff competition to sign the 20 year old and clubs such as Porto, Arsenal, Everton, Shalke, Borussia Dortmund, Marseille, Real Madrid, and Valenica all looked closely at the player who netted 16 goals in 34 matches in the Segunda Division last season.

While the Shields Gazette gave us this headline;

Azoze Perez: Why I chose Newcastle ahead of Arsenal and Real Madrid

So is there a single one of you out there who honestly thinks that Perez has signed for the chaos at Newcastle ahead of Champions League winners Real Madrid?

I suppose next it will be; ‘Jack Colback – I told Barca and Bayern my heart is in the Toon!’

Can you seriously believe that the likes of Real Madrid or indeed Valencia, don’t have scouts looking for signs of any talent on their doorstep?

The idea that Newcastle have stolen a march on all those teams listed, must have a devout following of…

Well I was going to include the journalists who wrote the stories/headlines, however I don’t even think they could be that naive, I will just limit that list to Ashley and Pardew – both kidding themselves they have the new Cristiano Ronaldo rather than another Romain Amalfitano…
