We all look forward to the upcoming transfer moves from Newcastle United.
With Mike Ashley now history and ambitious new owners thriving on the course, it means getting better players.
It’s difficult to cope with the changes at NUFC, especially when you look at the summer transfer window and not even free transfers or loan deals are allowed beyond Joe Willock’s signing.
However … I found it very strange studying the media for the past few days.
The coverage of the Newcastle United transfer moves for goals under the new owners …
Here are a number of headlines from just a brief period from today (Tuesday, October 12, 2021):

In all honesty, it’s absolutely pathetic.
Yes, we can all speculate about the potential signings in the upcoming transfer windows.
However, so many in today’s media have no limits on how deep it will go as they desperately try to get the clicks.
These headlines above all indicate that actual transfer moves / talks for signings are taking place at Newcastle NOW!
I’m sorry, but the new owners only received the keys to St. James Park on Thursday after clearly giving very little advance notice that it was going to happen.
No new manager has been appointed, no football director has been appointed, there are almost three months to the next transfer window but only a handful of days to the new owner, we are to believe this really desperate Newcastle United clickbait transfer claims are already trying that Complete signing of new players.
The new owner will do things right and only when he has his manager will he then be the lead in identifying potential signings he wants. Also, like I said, why should new hires be high on the initial list of jobs to do when it takes three months to get new players on?
