Ramsey is owed quite a lot of money from Juve. It's not an easy deal to do.Newcastle could do with Ramsey from Juvé, they could afford his wages and he still has plenty to offer. Then try and get Lingard, even if it’s just to the end of the season. Nat Phillips as has been advised already. Hell even offer Dele Alli a loan deal. He certainly needs a fresh start somewhere.
Still gutted his isn't returning to us wish him all the best and I think villa have done very well to get him.
Newcastle paying 25m for Chris Wood is absolutely insane. That stinks of desperation.
30-50m could of probably got you Origi from usbut what else can we do? Sat's game is one of the biggest of the season and we haven't got any fit strikers near PL level.
It was a release clause of a player we know can do a job (comparable stats to wilson) and could get in a day or two.
Any other striker (we're in for another) will take potentially up to the end of the window, which means throwing three games away.
It was obvious when we couldn't score against a League one team without a proper striker desperate measures were needed.
What I find funny is that people say 20-25 for wood is mad but throwing 30-50 on unproven 19-22 year olds would be better in a relegation battle. Madness.
In the context of where we are in this season, Wood is a good signing.
That presumes that United are anywhere near competent in dealing with such matters. United need to be ruthless and I can't remember a time in recent history when they were.We'll **** it up and end up playing Phil Jones as a CDM.Quite a bit of chatter in Germany that we're after Denis Zakaria for around £5m. Seems incredibly cheap.
Solid central midfielder, no brainer at that price.
