Don’t take what you read seriously though, but some of you may interested to know what’s going on recently with Newcastle and what the papers said about Keegan’s possible signing in the summer.
First of all, I have read on two Newcastle supporters forum a news about Mike Ashley lost millions of pounds on a share bet on Halifax Bank of Scotland. According to the Press Association, Mike has nursing losses running into tens of millions of pounds.
The news was something that other cheap scumbags media will love to spread and make their own versions from it. One of those is, no surprise, coming from the Sun who make a report that Ashley could be prepared to sell Newcastle United for the right price.
The Northern Echo writes Dubai International Capital – who have been trying to buy Liverpool – are known to be considering an approach, while there were also recent suggestions that a locally-based consortium was trying to get Alan Shearer to front a takeover.
Personaly I don’t believe what those papers said, but, if they actually telling the truth, the sooner we know Mike Ashley’s “True Colors” the better.
Now the news about Toon future signings from various media. Gazette write about Keegan preparing to make a new bid of around £2m in the summer. for Manchester United’s Mikael Silvestre. 30-year-old French International has been reported to close to full fitness, and already made return to the Red devils reserve side in a friendly clash at Bolton Wanderers in midweek.
He was having a badly knee injury while playing for ManU side against Everton at Goodison Park back in September, and I think Keegan was smart enough to not making approach for any player with injury record as bad as Silvestre. He will build a totally new, fresh and strongest Newcastle United squad and definetely not making Toon as the recycle bin for other premier league teams.
Meanwhile, the appointment of Newcastle new chief scout Lil Fuccillo following the departure of former chief Steve Walsh has made all Toon’s administrative role was being operated from the capital. Tony Jimenez, Jeff Vetere and now Lil Fuccillo are all operate from around London.
Fucillo currently spotted been checking on two Championship side team in search for any Toon new signing prospects. He was at Hillsborough last Saturday to be watching Wednesday’s 18-year-old centre half Mark Beevers, and Palace’s 17-year-old striker Sean Scannell. Both are playing in Sheffield Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Cystal Palace.
