Are Safc still in with a shout here ? Or is it a dead duck in the water. Am muddled up. Compare articles in the Chronic and the Mail. 

I still think he might we worth a punt, a better bet than Rodwell for sure and probably cheaper too. Ok. A section on here will hurl abuse at him, but the Club comes first and I want us out of the Chump League. The signings in this window are at best mediocre. Perhaps mediocrity suits ? Perhaps a mediocre club is easier to sell.

And compare us with what's going on at Wolves below.


Jack Colback in talks with Wolves over loan switch from Newcastle United

  • Newcastle United midfielder Jack Colback could join Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • The 27-year-old is in talks with Wolves over an initial loan move to Molineux

  • Colback is deemed surplus to requirements by Magpies manager Rafa Benitez

  • Hull City are keen on Colback, but the player would prefer to join Wolves

PUBLISHED: 13:11, 30 August 2017 | UPDATED: 16:50, 30 August 2017

Newcastle United midfielder Jack Colback is talking to Wolverhampton Wanders over an initial loan move.
The Molineux club are keen to sign the 27-year-old, who has fallen out with Rafa Benitez and is surplus to requirements.
Hull City had been discussing a move but Wolves' ambitious project is appealing to the former Sunderland player.
Wolves have already signed 14 players this summer.
Ryan Bennett, Roderick Miranda, Phil Ofosu-Ayeh, Barry Douglas, Ruben Neves, John Ruddy, Will Norris, Pedro Goncalves, Boubacar Hanne and Oskar Buur have signed permanent deals. 
Wolves have their sights set on winning promotion this season and have started by taking 10 points from five matches, leaving them fourth in the table. 

Newcastle United Premier League squad revealed: Jack Colback IS named - but faces uncertain future
Newcastle United have named their 25-man squad for the Premier League season ahead


  • 08:25, 2 SEP 2017

Newcastle United’s out-of-favour Jack Colback HAS been named in the club’s 25-man squad – but he still faces an uncertain future at St James’ Park.
The club submitted their squad list to the Premier League after Thursday’s deadline with no major surprises after out-of-favour Achraf Lazaar and Tim Krul both departed in the final hours of the summer transfer window.
There had been talk that Colback would be omitted entirely from the squad but with Newcastle shifting players off the books in the last week of the transfer window there was never much prospect of Rafa Benitez leaving him out – especially when United are short on players who can fill in at left-back.
But that does not mean Colback has much prospect of playing this season, with United having told him to find a new club in the summer. He came close to negotiating a deal with Wolves but opted to stay and fight for his future despite his name being circulated around North East clubs – including his former side Sunderland.Colback has been told he will be training with the under-23s for the foreseeable future and he may now even be involved in the Checkatrade Trophy games over the autumn. Peter Beardsley’s under-23 side did not have any of the first team squad in it during the midweek win over Crewe but there is the option of playing overage players who are not getting minutes – and that could be the only action Colback sees between now and January. Privately the player will hope to secure a return to the first team picture by then.  
 [size=14]The Premier League squad lists had to be submitted by 4pm on Friday, with only 17 players who have not been developed in England allowed to be named. The club also confirmed their under-21 squad for the season.

The Premier League announced: “After the closing of the summer transfer window each Premier League club had until 4pm BST on 1 September to submit a squad list containing no more than 17 players who do not fulfil the “Home Grown Player” (HGP) criteria.

“The rest of the squad, up to a total of 25 players, must be Home Grown.
“An HGP means a player who, irrespective of nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to The Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons, or 36 months, before his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21).
Here is the full squad (a star next to their name denotes homegrown). .........    END QUOTE
Or is it all to do with registering enough home grown players to qualify under the rules ?

Wouldn't have him back gift wrapped with a £5 Poundland voucher round his neck.
