These appalling Newcastle United headlines have to stop

2 weeks ago

Fair to say, the Newcastle United headlines have changed in recent weeks.

The takeover of the club leading to a radical difference from early October onwards.

Massive differences in not just the volume of them, but also the nature of the Newcastle United headlines, very very different.

It was a massive relief of course to be freed from fourteen and a half years of Mike Ashley rule but just look at what it has unleashed…

These appalling Newcastle United headlines have to stop…PLEASE!

‘Newcastle United make moves ‘in last few days’ for signing – Would rock Europe’s top clubs’

‘Newcastle United a new worry for Real Madrid – Plan to combat ‘exorbitant millionaire chips’ from Magpies’



‘PSG and Napoli stars linked with move to Newcastle United’

‘REVEALED: Newcastle United’s HUGE Transfer Shortlist!’

‘Newcastle would be an ‘ideal’ destination for Eden Hazard in January’

‘Newcastle a ‘concrete’ option for Adrien Rabiot’

The above are Newcastle United headlines I have spotted in just the last 24 hours, there have literally been thousands of similar, or even worse, ones these past five or six weeks.

Is there no shame?

When you (journalists, editors) are putting this absolute sh.t out, do you not have any embarrassment.

Thinking of local NUFC media in particular…are your really that desperate?

Newcastle United are NOT going to ‘rock Europe’s top clubs’ in this January 2022 transfer window.

As fans, we know that January is all about Eddie Howe getting help to avoid relegation, NOT to take a major step towards world dominance!

Newcastle United will NOT be signing the best players in the world in January 2022, it doesn’t make any sense to anybody for that to happen, whilst NUFC are in the position of simply ensuring they remain in the Premier League first.

Hopefully some great adventures to look forward to in years to come, but January 2022 will see maybe one or two buys made of the kind of players that are both perfectly suited to a relegation fight AND can then be part of a better quality team going forward, as well as maybe one or two (or three…) loan players of a similar or possibly even higher quality / pedigree, who are happy to sign up short-term with maybe the possibility of something longer term as well (depending on relegation / survival, plus right for both club and player).

Anyway, there are still seven weeks to go until the January 2022 transfer window even opens and Newcastle are still yet to appoint their director of football.

So in the immediate future all I want to see in terms of Newcastle United headlines, is how many Eddie Howe’s team have beaten Brentford by on Saturday.
