It’s officially today United will have a new-look on their executive management team in place after Chris Mort stepped down from his role as Chairman and the appointment of his former Deputy Chairman Derek Llambias to become the club Managing Director.


“Since coming to work at Newcastle United I have quickly begun to appreciate the passion people have for the Football Club.” Mr. Llambias said.

“I firmly believe we have the right people with the right expertise, with Kevin Keegan back as manager and being fully supported by Mike Ashley and the directors, to take the Club forward again.”

Nice to read that Keegan is being fully supported by Mike Ashley. New players to signed very soon? I hope so. Keegan has been reported to broke off his holiday in New York today and will start the talk to potential transfer targets as soon as posible.

Keegan’s first deputy Terry McDermott said that although KK’s been away, he’s standby on his phone and trying his best to bring new players to Newcastle.

“Now we’ll be coming back in this week and we’re looking forward to the start of pre-season. Both myself and Kevin are great believers in a hard pre-season so that the lads are flying when it all kicks off.” Terry added more in the Journal.

The news of Keegan’s return home this week has emerged couple old and new speculations today that United is renewing their interest to bring Glasgow Rangers defender Carlos Cuellar. Daily Mail said that the Gers’ boss Walter Smith is keen to raise funds and if he can sold Carlos to United, he’s hopping to swoop Burnley’s Kyle Lafferty.

James Milner’s proposed move to Liverpool has become clear with an exchange deal involving the Reds youngster Danny Guthrie. While other news saying we have mackems in between for the signature of Celtic winger Aiden McGeady.

    Is anyone else worried about the potential departure of Milner? I like him as a player and think Newcastle have plenty worse in their squad. He’s only young as well. More to the point – what does everyone know about Guthrie? Any good?

    I was a bit of worried too about Milner, but to be honest most of the Toon Army will only want players who have their heart to play for Newcastle and if Milner is loosing his interests to play for black-and-white he better leave rather than stay but don’t have any real contribution to the team.
