Leeds would be mad to sell him in January as although it’s a good profit he’s in contract until summer 2024 and staying up is worth more than what they’d sell him for

They might have no real choice in the matter. He could be related to Tarkowski…

To be fair he’d have to be Steve Bull to turn down Bayern to stay at Leeds!

I look forward to someone watching him twice and then popping back on here to tell us he’s better than Jensen.

Trippier to Newcastle seems to be a done deal. Just 3 more derfenders they need ....

Big difference between league 1 and Prem, he struggled in lower Prem sides to influence games
Totally agree...I was thinking more of getting him in permanently at the time he was on loan to us...would not cut it in the Premier but always a good player too watch.

Newcastle look like they mean business so unfortunately they will be fine this season and then mid-table next. By the time we play them their team will be unrecognisable from the last game IMHO

Ours too. I’d hope we’d not need to be playing Roerslev at RCB.

Maitland-Niles going on loan to Roma from Arsenal for a loan free of up to £800,000 plus wages for half a season. Not exactly a bargain?

Sadly Trippier is a level above what we can afford and they will buy their way out of trouble
Trippier's also 31 and would jump at a last big pay-day... not quite a BFC recruitment profile.

True but if they buy more players of that ilk in the short term they won't be relegated this season which is the number 1 aim. I certainly wasn't suggesting we would be interested - as you say he is not in the Brentford mould.

A right back isn't going to solve everything
No see above - they will probably bring in 4 or 5 players that will keep them up this season. They are only 2 points behind Watford so fully expect them to finish above bottom 3.

I agree they'll stay up but the only players they'll get are mercenaries in it for the money .... not that will bother the fans though

If they stay up it won't matter - Man City showed it can take a number of years despite having mega riches to compete for top 4 but eventually it will happen in all liklihood. Paying 100k a week is chicken feed to the Saudis.

Yeah said this all along which is why I'm delighted we got wins against Everton, Watford and Villa. Newcastle will spend enough money this month to win 8 or 9 PL games and see themselves safe.

Not sure what level Jed Wallace has been playing at this season but he's about to sign a pre-contract with Besiktas (salary to be paid in US$ I presume).

Think he'd fit in well at Burnley and is a more realistic target than Aaron Ramsey imo.

Effective goal scoring midfielder, good set piece ability, etc.

I dare say they're looking to do so. But what are they waiting for? They've virtually unlimited funds and they knew the window was opening last weekend, so why hadn't they players already lined up and ready to sign on the dotted line?

So far they've only managed Trippier, whilst also being knocked back for Forest(!) by Howe's old chum, Cook.

Norwich are dead, and likely Watford, as you say, but I wouldn't rule out Sean Dyche getting Burnley's act together - they've 2 games in hand over NUFC and a much superior GD.

Putting a whole load of new players on the pitch and getting an immediate tune, isn't that straightforward.

Yep one of those at home to Watford which is a massive game. However I don't think they are very good despite the first half v us - looks like 4 teams for 3 spots currently and I'd back Newcastle to just have enough to get out of trouble.

No it's not but four or five quality signings does give them a chance against the Watford, Norwich, Burnley, Leeds, Brighton's and maybe even ourselves. It'll be tough for them but I suspect they'll spend a lot of money to bring in those four or five signing's and become a decent mid table squad. Games will be close but I think they'll get on the right side of enough games to see themselves safe.

If course but it could be almost 4 weeks and 4 games later before they have all new signings in place. I cannot see Everton selling Digne to them because they’re also potentially in a relegation battle. Coutiniho has done very little since his Liverpool days, will he really be up for a battle, likewise Aubanayang sp? Personally I’d expect Howe to be sacked, possibly before end of February over Newcastle staying up.

Hardly anyone in the Premier League will sell to Newcastle, the rest of the club's want them as far in the rearview mirror as possible

I still think they are deep in trouble

Aaron Ramsey rejected Burnley because he wants to go to a more "high profile" club.
If he ends up at Newcastle, then clearly its money talking and nothing else.

Probably true about money, but given a choice between Newcastle and Burnley, I know which I regard as a higher profile; and also which I would choose, in his position. In both cases, the answer isn't a town in Lancashire!

They were saying on SSN last night that Ramsey was on £400k per week at Juve!!
But that was because he joined on a free …. but still 😱

Strange this QPR link, I believe Warbs was never much of a fan of Harlee, kept trying to bin him, Liam Moore ffs at one point.
Time changes everything I know but a strange one going by history.

They'll certainly spend money, but don't bank on it getting them 8 or 9 wins. It takes good coaching and desire to pick up wins, with decent skill thrown in.

Look at the money Man U spent - granted they are top half, but they play like a bunch of strangers who are uninterested. Even Luke Shaw says so!

If I had to choose a club to get out of the bottom 3 it would be Burnley - they aren't the most skilful, but they will battle harder than anyone else down there.

Coutinho to Villa is a free hit for them. Paying less than half his wages and he gets coached by Gerrard, a player he clearly admires. If it doesn't work out, Villa haven't lost much, if it does work - then great. Imagine Ollie must be very happy playing in front of Coutinho - excited to see what this does for his output.
