Newcastle unlikely to sign any players before window

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Simpson - Only arrival this summer

Danny Simpson’s arrival from Manchester United a while back has been Newcastle’s only ‘signing’ of the summer, so far. Mind you, it’s only a loan deal and lasts to January, which is pretty poor if you ask me. I can’t see why Newcastle don’t look to loan Macheda, or Fabio or indeed his brother Rafael.

There are plenty of players, as I’ve said many times before, that would join Newcastle in a flash, now more than ever, after our good start to the Coca Cola Championship campaign. Thing is, the only transfer activity at Newcastle will be the exit door, and eight players have already fled from Tyneside.

It’s a good thing that some of them players left but we need to replace them with new blood, the likes of Championship standard or the much talked about Per Ciljan Skjelbred, who I tend to hold high regard for. He’s already indicated that he’d be more than willing to join but it’s very doubtful that anything will be spent at Newcastle this summer.

It’s disappointing to say the least, considering we’ve a good chance of promotion this season. We just need 5 new faces and we could be in serious contention for automatic promotion. Indeed one of them signings would have to be Alan Shearer, but the odds of that, or any of the above, are disintegrating day by day.

TBH Doocey i cant see us getting Alan Shearer now as each day comes it seems more likely that Ashley will be staying and he (Ashley) seems to have frozen Alan completley out of the club i dont think there'll be a big crowd tonight against Huddersfield my fear now isn't the result but the chance of picking up injuries as i think Huddersfield will be pileing in to tackles with nothing to lose and everything to gain i just hope the squad comes through unscathed ready for Monday nights game against Leicester
