United…United…United We Stand! United We Stand, We Never Got Fall!

There are some news recently, about a friction between Sam Allardyce and the new Toon boards, makes me and (I believe) Toon Army everywhere worried.

Allardyce said that the new boards (and the owner himself) not know anything about football, while the boards (Chris Mort) said that the Toon debts are too high (more than £80m) so he won’t let Ashley to spend more transfer funds.

Before the new boards take charge, some news are said that Ashley will give Big Sam a huge transfer funds at around £50m, while the fact is until the last Toon signings, the funds that has been promised before was never there.

Kieron Dyer latest transfer to West Ham also being cancelled at the last minute by Ashley, as he thought that the fee was too low for a player like Dyer. This has raising new utter rubbish story from the newspaper about Sam has to sacrifice Martins, in order to get fresh money to buy new players.

I don’t think that Allardyce would do such thing for the club. He already knows how thin the current squad is, and will not make it more thinner as the season is about to start in less than a week. Although we are now have Alan Smith, it doesn’t mean that Martins can go. We have Owen sidelined for even more days, and I believe Sam will not gambling about loosing another ’key player’.

Allardyce later said, regardless of Ashley’s involvement in the Dyer situation, that he still maintains good relations with the United owner, and chairman Chris Mort.

“It’s a difficult period because we have so many balls in the air. Most fall by the wayside but I think it’s better to have more feelers out there. The more you have, the more success you will get.”

Yeah, right! I think we all should stand United, so we will never got fall! I believe the revolution is just begun, the sleeping giant must wake-up, the Magpies should again flying high, so high….


Rush Hours 3 for Toon

Jose EnriqueSam Allardyce has been acting in a “Rush Hours” for Newcastle United in terms to speed up the new signings for Toon as days to come short before 2007-2008 season, which is will start to ’Kick’ in two weeks.

After finalized the snap-up of Alan Amith from Manchester United and Lyon central-defender Claudio Caçapa, Allardyce will reassess his remaining targets to sign for Toon.

The latest name on Allardyce’s pocket is Spain Under-21 international José Enrique Sánchez. Enrique current club Villarreal, has confirmed that terms have been agreed for Enrique to move to the English Premiership club. The coffers for the Yellow Submarines are likely around €6 million (£4 million) for the youngster and due to sign a five-year contract with Newcastle.

The other Spanish club, Sevilla also reveals have agreed to let their Serbian giant stopper, Ivica Dragutinovic, leave on a deal close to £2.5million. Newcastle have offered the centre-half, who can also play on the left, a three-year contract to move to St James’ Park and the Serbian is keen on the switch, “This is the financial opportunity of my life and do not want to reject it,” Dragutinovic said.

Sam also ready to renew his interests in signing £6m Baines from Wigan Athletic and FC Copenhagen’s Brede Hangeland.

NO WAY! We will not let Martins Go at any price, but Dyer May Go

Sam Allardyce has made it clear today that he wants to hold on to Martins (22) who has a clause in his present deal which allows him to join another club for £13 million.

Speaking about the crazy news written by ’someone’ which is very well know because his "Extra Ordinary" quotes and comments, Allardyce has made it clear that the news was completely and utterly fabrication story.

The fact is the Official Club now is preparing a new contract for both Martins and Owen, with ’NO’ clause at all. Both players already commited their future lies with Newcastle United and will be happy to sign the new contract.

"I am a Newcastle player and my part is to score goals for Newcastle and I am happy to be doing that." Martins said. "I scored 17 goals last season so this season maybe I should be looking at doing better than that"

Meanwhile, there are some news about angry ’Supporter’ that has put life even harder for Kieron Dyer to stay at Toon.

The new chairman expressed his concerns about the "egg" accident happening to Dyer’s house as something that shouldn’t repeated again. More of that, he says that the accident can have a negative effect on the efforts to signing new players as they will think that the Toon Army was not so friendly fans.

I have to agree on that with Chris Mort, although I have been upset on the way Dyer’s handle some of his game with Newcastle or how he refused to play in different positions, but as a human, I can understand his reasons behind his transfer request. We, as the supporter has to accept that, and like I have said many times, we better to have player who realy want to play for Newcastle with his "heart".

Owen put first test to Sam’s Scientific Football at Newcastle

Michael OwenMichael Owen is putting the first real test to Sam Allardyce’s “Scientific Football” at Newcastle after the prime England and Newcastle striker has picking up a thigh injury in training today.

The 27-year-old picked up a minor injury in shooting practice and will be out of Saturday’s pre-season friendly at Carlisle and the Celtic’s match.

Sam Allardyce does not expect the England international to be out of action for any more than 10 days, but I think he will now something to do with his scientific approach to avoid more injury hit lists to his squad even before the kick-off of the real competition.

Sam said: “It’s a slight thigh injury he picked up doing a little shooting exercise, so we are taking a precautionary measure and leaving him out of Saturday’s game.”

“It may actually be a little early for the Celtic match, but Juventus on the next Sunday is one we hope he can be fit for.” I do hope so!

babayaroMeanwhile, another long-term injury casualties, Celestine Babayaro will have a meeting with top specialist Dr Ulrike Mushaweck, to have his groin and hernia problems examined.

Frau Mushaweck also got both Alan Shearer and Steve Harper back on their feet in the last two seasons, but even if she has the same success with Babayaro, the Nigerian international still looks set to miss the start of the season, leaving Big Sam without a recognised left-back.

To solve the problem, it’s being reported (or speculated) today that Sam is already make £7m bid to a mysterious top-class defender. The Official site refused to disclose who the target is but it is likely to be a central defender or left back or Fabio Cannavaro?

Kieron Dyer

More interesting and audacious speculation coming from the Chronicle yesterday about West Ham are more than keen in signing Kieron Dyer to join his former colleague Craig Bellamy, Scott Parker and Lee Bowyer at Upton Park.

The Hammers are step up their interest after their £6.1m brand new ex-Bordeaux midfielder Julien Faubert has ruptured his Achilles tendon, which means he will be out for six months. Dyer later commented about this news as saying that he is not interested about it and will keep his job at Newcastle. Well done Lad!

Micky Quinn (Striker) 1989 – 1992

I never won anything, so I suppose I was just a workmanlike goalscorer

The term of ’Journeyman Striker’ could have been invented for Micky Quinn – yet for all the clubs whose colors he wore, it was in Black-and-white shirt of Newcastle that he enoyed the most success.

His career had already taken him via Derby, Wigan (where he made his league bow), Stockport, Oldham and Portsmouth before he join Newcastle in June 1989 for a fee of £680,000.

Many felt the fee was too high, but Quinn began to pay his way by immediately with an impressive Geordie debut which saw him net four goals against a shell-shocked Leeds United.

Micky QuinnThat feat proved to be no flash in the pan and Quinn went on to average a goal every other game for the club. He was the League’s top scorer in 1989-1990 season with 34 goals and the Second division’s top scorer in 1986-1987 with 22 goals.

His partnership with the tall targetman Mark McGhee proved profitable for both, with a 57-goals total in their first season together.

His critics labelled him the player whose pace made him ’Deadly over Half-a-Yard’ but Micky often had the last laugh. Certainly there were few strikers who could find the target in tight situations as well, and as often, as Quinn did.

His Newcastle days were numbered following a knee injury and the arrival of David Kelly, and after scoring nearly 300 goals in all competitions, Quinn retired from football and doing his other job as a racehorse trainer.
