Longstaff signing a new contract at Newcastle. We’d been linked to him I think

I think you’ve got the wrong Longstaff.

Dwight Gayle deal collapsed as we have made surprise progress on 2 strikers and we pulled the plug.( both played uk last year ). Spence deal preventing finalising them both.  Could be another big exit

We’re close to signing Gayle, it’s almost done.

I haven’t had a lot. My source has been quiet since he met a new lass and he’s spending every spare minute with her and her lad Mungo. Nothing more on Darlow only that announced soon.

No it’s the right one

No it’s not. It’s his brother Matty who we were linked with and as far as I know he has been on loan.

not sure if its financial trouble as they havnt spent much in a long time, i think its more that the owner is prioritising the repayment of loans he made to the club of 65 million.

I don't think it's loans that he made to the club, I believe it's loans that were taken out to fund the purchase of the club.  The money was borrowed from the good people at MSD, which is where a chunk of the Derby County money was also owed. Part of the agreement was that if Burnley were relegated then the balance would have to be paid immediately rather than interest payments only being required for the first few years.  Burnley apparently have £50m in cash reserves so they aren't struggling for money, they will inevitably sell some players I guess as well.  Unfortunately, you have a club in Burnley who have actually operated their business in the right way, and have been comfortable in terms of FFP, but they have issues because the person who purchased the club was able to do so with loans made against the business they were buying.  It shouldn't be allowed in football.

I don't know much about Kompany's style of football, but I feel like he'd need quite a big turnover of players who've been had Dycheball ingrained into them, and obviously bought with that style in mind. 

to be fair Wilder managed to change our style with a mostly Warnock squad

It was a squad that wasn't suited to Warnockball either though, not enough 6'6 ogres in it

Any word on a new deal for Howson? Would definitely be good for 20-25 starts and we know he works well in the system.

He’ll be starting the majority of games if he did stay in my opinion. Not convinced we would bring anyone in to do a better job than him with our recruitment record.

They also had £102m of debt apparently. When that needs repaying, I don’t know. They have already received the transfer fee for Chris Wood, by borrowing from the bank, so Newcastle owe the bank the second instalment of £12.5m and not Burnley. 
Don’t think they are in dire straits, but they are certainly not rolling in cash. They could sell Pope, Cornet and O’Neill, as their major assets, but they will definitely need a lot of new players over the summer. We had better get used to stories linking both us and Burnley to the same players.

The cynical me wonders if Howsons improved performances may be due to him trying to get one last deal elsewhere  

I'd be surprised if he leaves and if he does leave, he won't be moving far.

Why are we being linked with every Newcastle player going?! We'll be asking if Steve Howey is left footed next 

He isn't but I believe that Phillipe Albert is  👍
