Newcastle 0 Sunderland 9: Free-spending
Di Canio leaves Toon fans feeling like the poor relations

It may not be a scoreline either Sunderland or Newcastle supporters realistically envisage. It is however the score in transfers so far this summer.

While Paolo Di Canio has adopted a brave policy for his first transfer window at the Stadium of Light, opposite number Alan Pardew has left his club’s transfer dealings to new director of football Joe Kinnear. And so far the self-proclaimed best in the business has not landed one new addition.

Kinnear couldn’t even manage to persuade his old pal Mick Harford to return to St James’s Park as his number two and, in Harford’s words, assist in player recruitment. If he can’t even sign a retired
No 9 what chance does he have of finding a new one?

Within days of Kinnear’s unexpected arrival, Newcastle lost out to Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund for Pierre–Emerick Aubameyang. Since then Marseille’s Andre-Pierre Gignac appears to have slipped through the net and only this week Kinnear made a final take-it-or-leave-it offer to Lyon for Bafetimbi Gomis.

Lyon want £12million for the France international and Newcastle will go as high as £8m.
Newcastle are now prepared to turn their attention to former Sunderland striker Darren Bent who is surplus to Aston Villa’s needs. Kinnear faces competition from Fulham for the former England international and is under pressure to negotiate this deal to a successful conclusion.

Seeking, and getting, the best deal, particularly in their dealings with French clubs, is classic Mike Ashley and has become a cornerstone of his regime. It works for Sports Direct, and it should work for his football club. If he misses out on a player or two, so be it. But it is frustrating the Toon faithful.


The club may perceive that keeping hold of Wonga rebel Papiss Cisse, alleged Manchester United target Yohan Cabaye, homesick captain Fabricio Coloccini and talented Dutch keeper Tim Krul is better than any incoming transfer business. But try selling and telling that to Newcastle fans.


Even ex-players are concerned. Speaking at the launch of his September 11 testimonial game between Newcastle and AC Milan legends, Hull’s new keeper Steve Harper said: 'There seems to be some positive noises about players coming in now. The likes of maybe Remy coming on loan would be a very good signing.


'As a fan, you want to see as many options as possible in a black and white shirt. I know that's what the manager wants, and hopefully he will get that.'


What does not help is the business done down the road at Sunderland where Di Canio, backed by a new Italian scouting network, was busy a month ago bringing in nine players, only one of whom, Altrincham’s Duncan Watmore, is English.


The Sunderland head coach clearly decided months ago his squad needed a major overhaul.



signings


Watmore, Valentin Roberge, Jozy Altidore, Vito Mannone, David Moberg Karlsson, Modibo Diakite, Cabral, El-Hadji Ba and Emanuele Giaccherini are all in Di Canio’s squad now.


Bramble and Matthew Kilgallon were released, Ahmed Elmohamady sold to Hull, and so far Simon Mignolet – at a tidy £7million profit – has left for Liverpool while Sunderland have secured year-long loan deals for Danny Graham and Alfred N’ Diaye, the two permanent signings made by Martin O’Neill in January, at a cost of nearly £8million.


And the exit door is far from closed. Phil Bardsley has had the humiliation of playing with the juniors, and being linked with a move to Newcastle, while captain Lee Cattermole wasn’t even told he no longer had a squad number. His future will be clearer after meeting Di Canio this week, but it is unlikely to be on Wearside.


No member of the Sunderland squad is immune (unless you’re John O’Shea or Adam Johnson it seems) and the likes of Seb Larsson, James McClean, Jack Colback, Craig Gardner, Connor Wickham and even top scorer Steven Fletcher could have new employers within a month.

Signing big and plenty is no guarantee of success, particularly when your manager is as volatile as Di Canio, but by getting his new men in quickly, the Italian coach has at least given them time to get used to his unique methods.


His policy has certainly renewed optimism on Wearside.


Former Newcastle and Ireland defender John Anderson hosts a nightly phone-in for BBC Newcastle. And he has noted a difference between the two sets of fans this summer.


'It is the two extremes,' he said. 'The majority of Newcastle punters are worried about the lack of signings and they would like to see new faces in, and lessons learnt from last year when the failure in the transfer market impacted on the season. Some think we’re in for a relegation fight.


'Sunderland fans are getting a bit carried away, and some are talking about top three or four after the win over Spurs last week. I can’t see that but fair play to them for giving it a go this summer.'

2 very, very big seasons ahead I think after both flirting with disaster last season. We could both be there again this but at least the Sunderland management are giving it a real go and for that I thank them.

Personally I do hope Newcastle bring someone in and then it will be Newcastle 1 Sunderland 9. A much more realistic looking score I think!

I cannot believe our cousins from up the road will not pull one or two decent transfers off. Was hoping Cisse buggered off tbh.

I see it going one of two ways for your chaps with no middle ground.
There's lots of incomings and time will tell if they are a collective big hit... or a miss.
I still have doubts over PDC's temprament too. People like Fergie could get away with being a hardliner because of what they achieved. PDC is unproved in the PL so to try the same may backfire.
Time will tell though but one things for sure... the ride shouild be fun for you guys.

Interesting, will have to read the article. Seems like Joe is doing the job he came in to do, Imagine trying to get Judas for two mill. What can the fans be thinking ? And this geezer a THERAPIST [ split the word in two ] after binning Ranger. The folks north of Bolden Hills must be apoplectic, to say the least.
