People need to go and buy extra pies so they can get the loan deal through man. It's all our fault if it doesn't come off. Pie profits and Rafa's spare change are what is getting these deals done.

£4m for a loan fee for the other guy though and probably £2m for this chap, if what is being reported is corrected, is like throwing money away.

The winger deal looks dead, this may happen.

I called it ages ago and I stand by my thoughts, we will have a left back on loan and that’s it, Ashley will see this as the absolute minimum Rafa wanted so that’s all he gets, the minimum ,and f*** Rafa.

Wasnt giving an opinion. I think while he may be right about their long term futures, the short term treatment of Lazaar, Saivet, Mbemba and Mitrovic was harmful to us. Mbemba didnt have a long term future, but he was better at left back than Manquillo. Mitro was better than joselu. By all means offload them, but use them until you do I say.

Lazaar was a Palermo reserve iirc? Think he was meant as a stop gap to be moved on either way he's not particularly good and can't defend for Toffee.

As for Saivet he was an offensive player who was converted to a defensive central midfielder and had a decent season playing for St Eteinne.

Mbemba ignore tactical instructions costing us goals despite being told repeatedly,

Mitrovic didn't fit the system as explained by both Rafa and Mitrovic himself.

I think it's evident that both aren't premier League standard.

As for Saivet he was an offensive player who was converted to a defensive central midfielder and had a decent season playing for St Eteinne.

Mbemba ignore tactical instructions costing us goals despite being told repeatedly,

Mitrovic didn't fit the system as explained by both Rafa and Mitrovic himself.

I think it's evident that both aren't premier League standard.

73 games in 2 and a half seasons for Palermo. 60 of those in Serie A.

Lazaar wasn't a Palermo reserve.  At the time I think it was considered quite a coup that we managed to persuade him to go from Serie A to Championship

Pretty sure he wasn't getting a game when we got him? And I think got him in the championship is the key here.

Either way, it hasn't worked out and the outlay was minimal.

Its a time when prices are traditionally more so that rules us right out of it, Ashley will never part with a fee in this current state of us being on the market.It will be loans at best from now till hes gone.Rafa sits and takes it till May and then leaves.

I think Rafa sees the best 11 now the 3-4-3 or whatever it is now. Dummett probably becoming more of a CB now IMO. He just simply can't be trusted to stay fit over an entire season.

There's nee f***ing chance Dummett's playing LWB man, he'd be the worst at it.

Honestly, don't see a future for him if we aren't playing 4 at the back. He's s**** at LWB and he's poor at CB too.

Rafa’s quotes imply competition and a non-certainty that he will adapt. He was at best second choice for his position out of the limited pool of loan players and he did not feature much for Monaco. You do get players from time to time that come in and don’t play much and I have an inkling he is going to be one of those.

If Ritchie didn't smack that penalty in and we ended up drawing vs Man City I suspect most would want to see Barreca starting ASAP to provide the same attacking threat of PACE that we have on the right side with Yedlin.

Carlos Carvalhas on Sky saying he's very good going forward, and got great delivery. Sounds like he's going to give us the wing back option that Lukaku was lined up for, which adds much needed dimension to our squad. Could be a good signing, although he did say he needs to work on his defensive game.

Just seems a bit of a strange one. Even if he was signed as a squad player, he doesn’t even manage to make the squad. January is normally used to strengthen the team and bring in much needed players you have been lacking through the season. Left backs sitting in the stands was not really a priority. Looks like Ritchie, Dummet, Kenedy and Manquillo are all ahead of him. Pretty pointless even being called a backup with that many ahead.

The only reason Longstaff got games is because we had nobody fit, it wasn't some master stroke that Rafa saw him and plucked him out of the development squad, he doesn't always get everything right all of the time.

From what I’ve gathered Rafa rates him, but he’s way off the pace and he only agreed to his signing because the alternative was no-one. His preferred choice not even considered at all.

This is just another example of what Rafa has to work with, a player he has the use of, but is of no use until he can be brought upto speed tactically and in terms of fitness. The right-back equiverlent of Joselu basically. Rafa could at least work on him though and try and do something with him.

Work which the conditions and environment of a pre-season are more ideal to assist in helping with than a small window of time during a busy period where relegation is at risk. Rafa would rather play someone out of position first because at least they will be fit, tactically tuned into his methods, have an understanding with team-mates and be more capable of following any instructions.

All key components Rafa uses to strengthen his players and team by in order to achieve results. Tried and trusted methods he has shown works that he rarely takes a risk with not even when a player is so more talented than anyone else to justify deviating from.

Not that he has ever had a player of such talent to lure him into any kind of temptation...

The sad thing is the club are wasting more money signing these kind of players on loan than actually spending money on whoever Rafa prefers, ultimately however, the waste is all Rafas. A waste of his time and effort. Wasted on the club who has wasted this time with Rafa.

I sincereley hope he does leave, backing or not, because he’s far too good for Newcastle.

I don’t subscribe to the Rafa is too good for this club mentality even though I get what you’re coming from. We’re all technically too good to be supporters of a club owned by MA.

I don’t subscribe to the Rafa is too good for this club mentality even though I get what you’re coming from. We’re all technically too good to be supporters of a club owned by MA. Rather I’m always of the opinion the that he and we can weather the MA storm. I fear where we go and our demise if Rafa goes and we fall apart for good.

He’s far too good for us, by which I mean professionally, as manager of these players, the club we are under Ashley and  the kind of budget he works with etc. I.e. the club in the realm of the now and present. Newcastle United as an idea of course for us is the greatest football club in the world as the song goes, no doubt even if only in our own heads and based on nothing but sentiment and unconditional devotion. But in reality, Rafa is CL and we are Championship. Again he’s far too good for us.

The absence of Antonio Barreca confirmed him as the Newcastle player with the shortest-ever competitive senior career for the club - a whole four minutes against Spurs at Wembley.

Definitely a name to remember for future quiz situations.

In club tradition he is definitely going on to be Italy's first choice left back following a £30m move to Inter or whatever. 

In all honestly, competition in the squad is good.  Ritchie really stepped up his game and didn't give Barreca a sniff.

:lol:

The Italian-born left back spent the second half of last season on loan at Newcastle where he made one appearance totalling four minutes - believed to be the shortest active senior career in our entire history.
