There are reports that Emre’s move is under threat as he has a compulsory call up to the army. This is understood to be incorrect as according to the Shields Gazette this is only for 21 days and both parties understand and accept this.

Check out the previous article for more details but talks are finally underway with Michael Owen about a new contract, hooray!

Again there is more news on Sholas move in another article but it looks like more dead wood has been shifted. Sorry to be harsh but Shola had all the physical attributes required to make it and had some skill too but there was always something missing and he never quite cut it at Newcastle.

Arshavin seems to have proven that he has class in his game for Russia against Sweden scoring a goal and being involved in practically every attacking move Russia made. This will undoubtedly raise a few heads from bigger clubs and might make it difficult for us to get our man.
