I can see both sides of the argument on this. You're right with what you say above but at the same time he wasn't particularly good either.

That said, I wouldn't have said he was particularly any worse than other dollopers we've had like Lowe and Evans. Maybe Evans isn't "Lowe Mark 2" maybe the latter 2 are "Andrews Marks 2 and  3" !

Was better than Lowe, Smallwood, Guthrie, Akpan, Williamson etc. Had he came in during the championship he would have been viewed on as an average player. As it was, he became  a symbol for the clubs decline from Tugay, Flitcroft, Bentley Reid to Andrews and the midfielders we have had subsequently.

As I said earlier I saw Atsu  play against Rochdale earlier this year. Magloire's the one to ask about him because Atsu ran him ragged for half an hour until Magloire was subbed and Matheson came on. Some players have that initial burst of speed over say 10 yards that gets them in the clear. Some players don't always have that but they're fast over say 50 yards. That's how a player can appear to be really fast but over 50 yards they can be getting caught by the longer striding players.

Atsu had a great half an hour in that game.  Every time he got the ball, which was often once Newcastle figured out he was the danger man. he made something happen. He laid on about 5 good chances of which Newcastle finally took one. He was quick and tricky. When they brought Matheson on he was up against somebody who was as quick if not quicker. He sort of faded out of the game then but so did most of the Newcastle team. Two things you've got to consider - this was against lower league opposition but he won't come up against somebody as quick as Matheson every week. Yedlin on the other wing looked a decent player also.

I suppose Magloire v Matheson is a good example of a quick player versus a fast player. Matheson would beat Magloire in a 20 yard dash all the time but over 50 yards it might be another story given Magloire's reputation.

Surely Newcastle would have told us this 4 weeks ago if we had asked. Same for Middlesbrough and Assombalonga last year. What have we been doing all this time?

To be fair, probably 3rd choice thinking we could bring in others first.

Atsu is presumably a last minute panic idea having as usual drawn a blank elsewhere all month on our main targets.

Lads/lasses, I know we are all excited as it’s deadline day, but if we are posting snippets of information, put some meat on the bones or don’t say anything, it’s dead annoying.

For example- don’t do this ‘I know something has happened, but I won’t say who was involved’.

On the bus arguing @simongarnerisgod I tell you what stop the bus unload the six and tell them to ring there wives to pick them up or get a cab home. That would sort it and they’d soon realise that’s the team mates they have. 

Call it a non Portuguese free non training bonding session. You run through walls for your colleagues in my department

just had a call from a very reliable source that mowbray got on the team bus last,having settled  what looked like a serious argument between at  least six of the squad,there was pushing,shoving and what looked like aggro before tony stepped in and settled issues with some stern finger wagging,no names disclosed as my source wants to remain undercover

Who'e eaten all the lemon drizzle cake ?

no mention of a left back??our weakest area of the pitch,id`e say it a priority to strenghten there

They want to get in a left-back in the summer permanently from my reading online of TM's comments. Sounds as though none of the targets in that area of the pitch are available in jan.

Important question, 

If Mowbray isn't on the bus,how is he getting to the game? He lives up there at weekends anyway doesn't he? Probably hitting the road in the old car around midnight I'd say. 

Unless we get the dreaded "no more business" tweet from Sharpe. At which point I will be avoiding the transfer thread 😂

3pm Update 

Big big news coming from my sources

I can confirm that Tony is deciding between Pizza Italia and Don Luca for his evening meal.  Negotiations ongoing 

Tony has made a opening/final offer of 10 pounds for two pizzas and chips from Pizza Italia but a deal could be dependent on whether his stomach settles down in the next hour.

I mean it's almost a cert that Bell will get injured now. A niggle for Downing and we are screwed pretty much. I suppose Williams...eugh

He's probably going to have to starve on the basis the actual price of the deal is £17.99.

So he's a panic signing then? 

Even if we weren't looking at him earlier in the window, surely homework would have been done on his wage and the scope for Newcastle to budge on that.

With Mike Ashley running them he's not going to allow a loan where they pay most of his wage and he plays for us.

Left back: Mowbray already said earlier this month that Mulgrew might be able to play there.

He has made an honest offer and he doesn't negotiate, just like his current transfer policy

Fisher to MK Dons, Loan

Given the quality or lack thereof of Walton and Leutwiler Id say that's a strange move.

Bit like loaning out Wharton and Magloire when we were already short on centre halves.
