The excitement builds with transfer deadline day, as Newcastle fans just get on with another Thursday…remember how you felt 116 days ago?
There were 8 Newcastle deals on January transfer deadline day – details here of all the moves in and out.
Now that we have Transfer Deadline Day!, you were probably watching the telly. Or at work. Or at work watching the telly if you work in a telly shop.
With 90 minutes still to go (to 6pm), the Newcastle United transfer deadline day has lived up/down to expectations so far.
Sky Sports have (thankfully) called off their transfer deadline day ritual outside stadiums after the incidents last time around.
It was said beforehand that Alan Pardew would explain today what happened on transfer deadline day – you won’t be impressed!
Sky Sports got more than they bargained for when it came to their carefully stage managed manipulation of transfer deadline day.
Let us travel back in time, only 24 hours, to Alan Pardew’s transfer deadline day pledge.
Newcastle Utd target Mariappa goes to Millwall….to play for Watford tonight!
Looks like this deal is finally knocked on the head, especially as Alan Pardew made clear the club were unlikely to go back if the player didn’t sign now.
Alan Pardew; “I’m smiling which is a good sign. Certainly wasn’t last year, All our big players are going to stay”.
“With the Watford boy (Mariappa) we have made our final bid and if he doesn’t come today, he probably won’t be coming to the club”.
