The signing of Jóhan Símun Edmundsson could indicate that Mike Ashley is staying long-term

Edmundsson - Signs on loan from B68 Toftir for the remainder of the season

I must say the Sunday Papers have been pretty quiet today, it seems as if they’re all too caught up in the John Terry scandal to produce any ‘interesting’ rumours surrounding us Magpies. Newcastle in the last couple of days have reportedly signed Joan Simun Edmundsson from B68 Toftir on-loan for the rest of the season. We don’t know a huge amount about the Faroe Island international but in case you didn’t know, he’s the guy on the right of the picture 😀 Brian Kerr, current Faroe Islands and former Ireland manager has backed the 18-year old to make an impact on Tyneside as Kerr himself saw what the youngster can do, playing for the Faroe Islands in their recent game against France. It’s good to see we are still signing young blood but this could mean a lot more than at first sight.

When Mike Ashley arrived he set about ‘trying’ to make a team and build a future generation of potential worldbeaters. In what has been about his only success at the club, we’ve seen the likes of Nile Ranger, Haris Vuckic and others come through the ranks.

During the turmoil at the club  we didn’t sign anyone and our youth development stalled fully when Dennis Wise departed the club. Some time on, here we are keeping tabs on a potential gem in the name of Joan Simun Edmundsson.

Many are saying that this means that Mike Ashley won’t be selling anytime soon and normality has resumed at the club, ie buying a ‘few’ youngins’. However, to say Newcastle United fans would be a tad disappointed if Mike Ashley was our owner come May is an understatement.

The club has picked up both on and off the field but Mike Ashley is still no football club owner. Some says he’s learning and I’d certainly hope so but surely he cannot stay another season on Tyneside if we manage to get promoted and he has a few offers for the club?

Edmundsson is 18 and won’t be going into the U-18 Newcastle United side. Instead, we’d expect the lad to be on the bench in the senior team in a few weeks, once he’s settled in on Tyneside. It will be interesting to see how he fares and who knows, we might just have the next Súni Olsen on our hands. Who? A very good question 😀

Comments welcome 🙂

I can't see him making the bench unless there's injuries or suspensions otherwise CH will have to leave out 2 of the current 5 strikers we have.

Well he only signed a lucrative 5 year contract there last season under Kinnear so I doubt he'll want to drop his 60,000k p/w wages! Who wouldn't?

More players the better in the academy...Airey, the swedish lad, Edmundsoon, Ranger and Vuckic, now its down to who wants it the most for who gets the games. Should really push these good youngsters onto the next level.

Well having seen what the Yanks & arab have done to football teams of recent, I think we'd better stick with what we have, better the devil you know than the one you don't I say :) I see Carroll has been charged with assualt, what will happen if he gets convisted & sent down, will the club stick with him like Barton or ditch him?? Bet he doesn't get off without even a warning like a PL player we all know :(

Súni Olsen is an other Faroese international footballer. He is a NUFC fan, don't know if that is what Doocey is refering to?

To sell the club this close season would be disastrous!!! We've just managed to stabalize from the useless journey men on their mega wages - bought by Freddy Shepperd and co. Sure, Ashley has made mistakes (big ones at that), but i for one stand by him. There is no doubt this club would have gone into admin, had the previous regime still been here - spending was beyond control. If NUFC is sold in the summer then you can say goodbye to the current manager and his purchases. Believe me, we have more of a chance to stay up next season (if we get there) if Ashley stays...

Scotty, I have to agree, if Ash sells us now we will be screwed! We will end up with the NUST running us which would be a fate worse thatn death!! Or Barry Moat who couldn't afford to buy us earlier so even if he raises the cash to buy us how will he afford players? Oh I know, just like Fat Fred he will borrow and put the club at risk. Please can fans stop blaming Ashley for everything and get behind the club as a whole!! Things could be a shite site worse, we could be Crystal Palace or Pompey!!!!

Chuck, The big TV Revenue will for sure tempt Ashley to stay, the steps the club has taken in recent months/weeks suggest that he might be staying for a while longer. Who knows though, he has the final decision.
