Firstly, on behalf of everyone associated with true faith I would like to give a big Black & White welcome to Newcastle United to Siem De Jong who it transpires has actually signed for the club in a real, proper transfer. We wish Siem a long, happy and successful career at Newcastle United and hope he and his family enjoy living in our city and become part of our community.
In football terms we hope Siem will be able to fill the rather large Yohan Cabaye shaped hole there is at our club and hit the ground running.
On a positive basis, its good that a player who will be key next season has been signed before the start of pre-season training.
We note the club has taken no time to publicise the signing. Its a shame the local press can’t welcome him to the club and ask him and the manager some questions supporters would like to be answered about player recruitment but well … hmm.
One of those questions would be – has Mathieu Debuchy signed for Arsenal as is being reported in some media outlets today?
Was the sale Debuchy sale required in order for De Jong to sign?
We await any response but hardly with baited breath given Newcastle United’s lamentable communications.
That is all.
