    Yeah, I let my sentiments be known on the Liverpool thread.

    At least Newcastle appear to FINALLY be getting a new player.

    Kenedy in. Good loan deal, but a LOT more needed. Looks like Jabba the Ashley is trying to skimp and still get a striker. Learn your effing lessons, you piece of garbage!

    You can take Sturridge on a loan if you want him.

    Thought he was being sold, not loaned? I know we've been linked, though it's never happening. You joke, but he'd probably keep us up. That's how desperate our striker plight is.

    Oh, and Jabba the Ashley has his cronies up to their old bidding tricks in the transfer window. Bid of 13 mill turned down? Team valuation between 20 and 22 mill? Why, let's bid 14 mill! Not like the window is coming close to slamming shut or anything, right? Effing morons.

    They want to sell him but they had an absurd 35M price on him. A couple places said they wanted him on a loan, but those are falling through. Apparently L'Pool want 1M and the team to cover his $130k in wages or whatever it is. They have an 18M evaluation on him now. They appear pretty desperate to let him go.

    Newcastle defeated by Chelsea. Too bad Norwich did not pull the upset over Chelsea. Norwich probably would give Newcastle problems right now anyway.

    Yeah, this game was no surprise. And Jabba the Ashley's cronies claiming the club are 'about to break their transfer record' on a striker last week...hmm, three days until the window closes, and we get effing crickets out of the club. Relegation, here we come.

    Funny I mentioned Sturridge... there were reports that he was headed to Newcastle for a physical and then changed his mind last minute because he wants to go to WBA instead. Weird.

    West Brom have not been terrible of late. Smart move perhaps. But not the worst thing for Newcastle either I guess. But Newcastle desperately need help.

    Oh, trust me, it's HORRIFIC for Newcastle. The relegation squad has added Kenedy on loan. That's IT. He should help a bit in defense and on the wing, but the #1 problem is a STRIKER. Jabba the Ashley was said to have 'sanctioned a club-record fee' for a top striker. What a ******* joke. One week on and two absolutely derisory (and non-record breaking) bids later, they were given a 6pm Monday deadline to sign Jorgenson from Feyenoord. Failed. The Ashley PR machine strikes again!

    They lost Sturridge to ALAN ******* PARDEW and West Brom at the last second--because the kid has family in Birmingham. Alan ******* Pardew, a craptastic coach, on a relegation rival, stole a striker, OUR MOST DESPERATE NEED, out from under us. Not only could that see Newcastle relegated, it is a massive punch to the collective fan base's nuts.

    The only other two deals that even sound remotely possible is a loan for that failed Man City center back (WTF kind of deal is that? NOT the area of need!) and a deal for some Eastern-European keeper I've never heard of. NEITHER are positions of great need; we have CBs, and Elliot and Darlow are adequate for purposes. While it would be nice to send Woodman out on loan to help him develop, he can sit his ass on the bench and provide 3rd-string cover for them. The relegation fight comes first, above everything else. Who gives a damn that we lost to Chelsea in the FA cup? It's no surprise, we didn't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning it, and it saves this paper-thin Championship squad having to play extra games.

    With what the teams around them in the table are doing, and the absolute shambles Newcastle are at scoring goals, if Jabba the Asshat Ashley doesn't open the goddamned pocket book in the next few days, Newcastle will 100 ******* percent be back in the Championship next season. Because, if Kenedy is the only incoming in January, and if we don't get a decent striker in, Benitez is ******* GONE. And who in the hell would blame him?

    Jabba the Ashley promised backing, after winning the Championship, that Benitez would get every penny of profit generated. He walked before a TV camera and made the verbal promise LIVE. He just can't ******* help himself from being a big fat liar, in the limelight, no less (and the British press ignore it completely, or lap up his ********--EVERY TIME). We've thus far, in TWO windows, had a net spend of 17 million. SEVENTEEN ******* MILLION!!!

    LIES, ******* LIES!!! And now his lies and parsimony are going to **** up any hope of a sale, because who wants to buy a Championship team for 350 million pounds?

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WE DO NOT ******* DESERVE THIS GODDAMNED ******* ********!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry, I had to get that out. Outside of one soccer buddy I haven't seen in a while, this is my only place to vent. And it is absolute hell being a Newcastle fan under that ******* oxygen thief Jabba the Ashley.

    The only way Newcastle stay up (unless three of the other bottom dwellers also implode) is, if Benitez is finally forced to turn to Mitrovic, he becomes a revelation. Because, let's face it--neither Gayle or Joselu are getting it done. Okay, maybe if Kenedy turns out to be a goal machine too lol But, seriously, given how unlikely any of that is...there they go, back to the Championship.

    Well, what a day it's been (and what a day it'll end up, too, I'm sure). Kenedy is electric. Hit the post, won a penalty (thanks a LOT, Joselu, you effing suckwad!), and put in the corner that Lascelles smashed home. Of course, useless Joselu cost us the victory twice over, missing the penalty and missing a gimme late, so of course Burnley scored an 85th-minute equalizer. Still an important point, but JESUS JOSELU!!!

    Sounds like the Mags have reinforcements coming in, but I'm not jinxing ANYTHING!

    Possibly the best thing I've seen all day is the sign setup before the game at SJP. Classy, classy fan gesture.

    It's all official now, so I can't jinx any of it :)

    Slimani in is HUGE. If he plays just decent as a striker, Newcastle probably stay up, given the Kenedy addition as well. That's two excellent offensive additions, which is where the team are lacking. With Lascelles in the lineup, they have a solid defensive record--and Kenedy helps a bit there, too, as wing back.

    Dubravka in allows Woodman to go out on loan, which is crucial for his development. And it gives us a keeper who can supposedly distribute the frickin' ball. Darlow and Elliot are fine at saves, but this side is crying out for good keeper distribution.

    Mitrovic's loan move to Anderlecth fell through, but Fulham somehow swooped to get him on loan at the eleventh hour. Good business for both clubs.

    And Colback is finally out of here, at least for the rest of the season! Loaned to Forest, I think it was. God, do I hope his contract is up after this season! What an albatross he's been.

    So, considering this business, I think Newcastle did enough...BARELY...to give Benitez what he needs to keep them up in the Premier League. And, just as good, it looks like Ashley is still looking to sell. Everything was a loan move, which points to that.

    So...whew! Newcastle actually did okay on deadline day for once.
