How Low Can Newcastle United Go?

8 years ago

A bid goes in for Ross McCormack of Leeds United, with newly relegated Norwich City said to be one of those clubs bidding, along with Derby County.

It seems to me – and I could be wrong on this – that Newcastle are starting to get the name of being a really stingy/awkward club, with Louis Nicollin of Montpellier going out of his way to criticise United.

Even today, the agent of Swansea striker Wilfried Bony said Newcastle always try to bid low.

He was inferring that Newcastle didn’t have any ambition, and of course, he is right on that.

It’s annoying that Newcastle, who could make upwards of £50M profit in this financial year which ends on June 30th, the biggest profit in their history, are so tight with our money in the transfer market.

It seems we cannot outbid Championship clubs, or lower premier league clubs, who don’t have anywhere near the money Newcastle (should) have available to spend this summer.

With other clubs also saying that bids for their players by NUFC are derisory, where on earth do we stand on transfers. Are we, as it seems, content on bringing in freebies, loans and cheap kids that won’t get a sniff?

Or will we actually buy a few players who will cost Ashley a few quid?

The way those in charge at Newcastle are going on in the transfer market, there will be no club in Europe willing to do business with United. The sooner these so called club officials see that the better, otherwise they will panic buy near the end of the transfer window, and we will end up with the rubbish that is left.

I hope I am wrong but I just get that feeling that every time I read the stories of who we are interested in, that it`s not going to happen, because MA will not spend our cash.

As this transfer window goes on and on, the more depressing it gets for us all.

Come the start of the season, will we have a squad to take us forwards or one which will go..backwards?
