Taylor signs but more needed

Taylor - Signing confirmed but more faces needed

Ryan Taylor’s transfer to Newcastle is in the bag after Kinnear unveiled our second signing with an hour left in the window. Taylor come part of a deal which sees N’Zogbia o he other way plus we get £6m, thanks very much Bruce 😀 This is not enough though as we need more numbers and we really hope for more faces before 5pm or not too late after that time. Joe is certainly happy with his purchase and I am too, however another couple signings wouldn’t go wrong.

Joe said: > _‘I’m over the moon to get Ryan because he is still a young player but one with a lot of experience.‘He’s played nearly 200 career games and is still only 24.

  'His versatility is tremendous, he can play on the left or the right and in defence or midfield.

  'He's a total footballer in that he's got two good feet and is very good on the ball.

  'He's another Scouse lad like Kevin Nolan with a great character and we're very happy to get him on board.'_

More players please, Johnston would be nice, maybe a defender and a striker too.

Comments appreciated 🙂

Shame we had a bid of £8 million turned down for Johnson. Would have been a very good buy. Well if that is it for this window. we've got a couple of decent players in, in the form of Kevin Nolan and Ryan Taylor.

Conflicting info on Johnson. Setanta reporting failed medical and Sky reporting bid denied. I find it very hard that City wouldn't accept a bid of 8 mil for a player that hasn't played since November. I am still very happy on the Nolan signing. Future captain. I don't consider Given leaving as a bad thing. Harper is very capable of being our #1 and we got rid of the shit head Insomnia. 3 players in, 2 of them will give 110% all the time, can't complain. I am still seeing something about Denilson coming on loan if Arshaven completes his move. Doocey have you heard anything?

I could not see why Johnson would fail a medical, he has not been injured recently, and from what I've seen of him he is a capable youngster. I understand what Man City are saying though for Johnson, that they want to keep their youngsters. Had this been any other club, £8 million would secure the player, as the money would be invaluable who hasnt played since November. But this is Man City, the richest club in the world, so this money is not needed. With the three people we signed, Nolan is a class player, for £4 million he seems a steal. Taylor as well has been consistently good for Wigan, and how he got £6 million and him for "Le Sulk" I have no clue, thanks Steve Bruce. Denilson would be another great addition, he's played well for arsenal this season. Even if Arshevin signs, I can't see him going, however much I want him to, because Arsenal have got a whole host of injuries, in particular the midfield region, Walcott, Fabregas and Rosicky, so I heavily doubt he will be named as a Newcastle player. Well done Doocey for all your coverage over the transfer window, and I think I can say for everything who looks on here every day, thank you ever so much.

Presto, it has been a pleasure but it would have been even more nicer should we have got 3 signings in. Dreams eh?:)

Fair enough, but no-one can blame MA this transfer window, he has put some decent bids on the table, just been unfortunate to land more. My main concern now is our strikeforce, Martins better get back to fitness soon or we might be in a spot of bother. Just looking at our subs bench against Sunderland tells its own story. Krul, Xisco, Geremi, LuaLua, Donaldson, Edgar, Lovenkrands If your a goal down against a decent Premier League team, this bench and exactly going to provide much promise of getting back into the game.

This is a reallly good signing for us. I think we're one of the only teams in the league without a decent set piece taker... Fingers crossed MA, JK, Wise & Lamby-whats-his-face arent out the office yet :)

I think so too. Mike Ashley, Derek Llambias and Joe Kinnear are still at the training ground, hardly eating mince pies are they? Unless of the snow that is...

Anymore news Doocey?? I switched off for a couple of hours to let the histeria of no more signings settle!! I still have hope that the top wigs have been @ the training ground late to tie someone up :)

All over now. Disasppointing but Smith, Viduka and Martins are back for the Brom game, a little consolation :D
