Why are you allowed a new thread for this now when you've merged a number of threads about him into the squad thread this morning?

Anyway, seems like a really good signing.

Because until they’re announced it’s all general speculation for the Squad Thread.

Player’s get a separate Thread when they’re announced as a confirmed arrival. We then merge any more Thread’s on them over the Season (We did this on the Jon Mellish Thread in the last week as an example), so any chat about them is in one place.

We’ve done it with all new Signings for a while...

Considering where we were a few weeks ago in terms of numbers and quality, I think credit has to go to both Holdsworth and Pressley for the way we've recruited. All the new signings (Carroll's red card aside) have shown promise so far. We have pacey and hard working players all over the pitch now, several options up front, real quality out wide in McKirdy and Thomas, a good balance in midfield and a solid-looking defence and goalkeeper. There's clearly also a focus on our youth team now which hasn't been the case for several years. All in all a really good window in my opinion if nobody else joins or leaves. The risk with a smaller squad, of course, is that an injury could scupper our season, but there seems to be enough about this group after three games to surprise a few. Roll on tomorrow.

Am I missing something here, or are you all being sarcastic?

Don’t get me wrong, happy to see what he can do but the positivity on here is akin to January this year when We made a load of loan signings and lots of us - me included - were excited.

Not much came from those signings.

Our form post-January was more down to who we lost than who we brought in. Nadesan, Yates and Sowerby were integral to that run of form, lost them, changed the manager and had to rebuild. Thomas and O'Hare made a real difference; one of those we've brought back. Cullen is a good player at this level, we took a gamble with his injury record, he got injured. Simpson wasn't Pressley's signing and we had nobody else to score goals other than Hope. We shouldn't have collapsed the way that we did, sure, but the early signs this season are that this team is much more resilient and we have genuine competition for places in each position.

Our top scorer from last season wouldn't even get into the side at the moment and although Sorensen might not live up to expectations, all of the signings so far look calculated, they look like they want to be here and are all bought into the way we want to play. Given the number of goals he's scored for Newcastle's various teams and internationally with Denmark U21s, I don't think it's too bold an assumption to think he's a good addition and we have a right to be excited. We've been good at beating teams in higher divisions in the cups in recent years and not followed that up in the league so there's no point going over the top after the Barnsley result, but nothing I've seen so far makes me worry about the season ahead.

It's been a tough week for Laffy, Panface and the rest of the bed-wetters.

First we humiliate a Division Two team, then we sign a striker who's been on the verge of breaking into a top flight side.

Looks like it's going to be a long hard season, doesn't it?

I think you have to remember on here that there are a few very vocal posters who like to complain a lot.

A lot of us realised that although it was in no way ideal to go into the new season without a full squad (only two strikers that had been with us for only a few days between them), we knew there were some major additions that were expected in that were going to make us a better team.

The Newcastle fans I know were surprised that Sorensen wasn't in their 25 man squad for the Premier League this year; I'm sure part of that is that their attacking options are terrible, but this lad is not just another bog standard youth player from a Premier League team that we've had so often over the years.

They reckon it's a huge season for him, if he's going to do anything as a player he needs to perform for us.

In fairness, those signings had the potential to have us build on the success.
As it happens the lad from Blackpool up top never got a chance to play but he had the pedigree to be a great signing had it worked out and he'd stayed fit.
It was a gamble and it didn't pay off, that's kind of how gambling goes...some pay off, others don't.
I think Pressley has learned from that and is trying the other end of the scale, talented young lads without the injury record that are a gamble if they're up to senior football or not.
They may work, they may not, but this kid has a good reputation without making it at his parent club yet...he's an international in a pretty good u23 set up in Denmark, maybe this loan and pitch time will be the making of him? Blackpool didn't use him to know whether he can cut it or not so it's unfair to judge him on that.
It's worth a shot.

Holdsworth is still a snake oil salesman though. That certainly hasn't changed. Getting bigger clubs to trust us with better young players is a feat in itself, suspect that's more Pressley than Reg but who know's, maybe he is the messiah and not just a naughty boy.

It's better to be silent and assumed a fool than to speak and remove all doubt

Is it just me but the names of our players it’s taking me a little time to remember there names, spelling them is another thing . Now we signed a Dane too many possibilities of a spelling mistake there. I’ll just call him the Great Dane, hopefully when he’s scored 20 goals

Go and take your pathetic toe curling hubris to another playground.

We have been sorely lacking in players that can excite the fans over recent times.
We've got some interesting young players in attack who are capable of hitting the heights
This makes me look forward to the games and feel they may be less dreary then they have sometimes been.
Still doesn't necessarily mean I am happy with a squad built around loanees and short term deals, but have to be fair and say we seem to have done some pretty shrewd deals over the summer.
I will now get behind the team, like the [censored] that I am. Come on lads, this is your chance to shine. Let's see you do it.

What a fickle lot.

Six days ago the team is getting all sorts of abuse after the half hearted efforts at Swindon. Now the same people are waxing lyrical about a premiership reserve who couldn’t manage a full game for Blackpool and victory at Barnsley in some tin pot cup!
Our weak midfield is, all of a sudden, balanced!

We’ve played THREE games. It is far too early to make any judgements. We could win the league, we could finish bottom. The beauty is in the discovery.

Enjoy, and keep those sheets dry until October at least!

Pressley from the outset has had a blueprint of how he wants to play he wanted quicker stronger players wants to press teams and wanted more goal threats,the bloke has worked on a very modest budget and within 3 games has produced a near perfect away performance against a higher ranked team,this team will need time to gel but I have been very quietly impressed this far and if this lad has been his number 1 target then great because as far as I can see his signings have been well planned and thought out we are far quicker all over park 7 goals in first 3 games is promising and we have good options up front and some genuinely exciting young players both signed up and on loan and some very solid experienced players I'm very hopeful they can produce some exciting and productive performances hopefully this lad is final piece of his jigsaw

Only ever met the guy a couple of times, but I have to say he comes across as a complete gentleman, and I know its early doors but that performance on Tuesday Night was exceptional.
Not sure whether it really is in 'many peoples eyes', most people I know think the same as me, the first few weeks he was working with one hand tied behind his back, with players like Nadessan, Sowerby and Yates all returning to their parent clubs. And to judge him on their replacements when he only had a minimal time to work with them is absolutely ludicrous.
He may not be the answer, who knows? but for the time being hes making a bloody good fist of it, and deserves all the plaudits hes currently getting.

I can't see how we lose with hamlet. If he's good we win. If he's not olaf and lofty are playing well so it's Blackpool all over again. I imagine it'll be clearer after we see him play.
Still think we need a couple more though, winger and midfielder.

Reading through posts on here, you would think some fans want the manager and team to fail!

I'm sure some fans are happier when we are struggling. There's a few in the paddock who seem very quiet when we are winning bit always vocal when we're getting beat.

Very strange.

Not really. It’s some people’s nature to be louder when frustrated and pissed off.

I don’t think some want the team to lose for the sake of it-I reckon it’s more down to a desire for regime change and a winning team slows that process down-even when behind the scenes the Club was burning cash it didn’t have.I lost the plot myself and ‘enjoyed’ their discomfort when I saw the mess they got themselves into financially .This after the shambles of billionaire-gate-not particularly proud of my feelings at the time but what goes around comes around and having been described as having ‘dubious business practices’ ,it was ironic that those same accusers running the Club needed a bailout themselves.Likewise the Pioneer Food court action-dubious business practices?

The Club is however slowly improving at all levels and appears something near financially
stable at last-I also reckon we have a good manager.Regime change will surely come as time goes on so all should get behind the team and enjoy the moment.

Great opening to the season with an exciting start with a team he has chosen on a very low budget. Long may it last and, if the team continues to surprise and excite, it could be an unexpectly good season.
Imagine what it could be like if he had some luar!

I saw this lad play for Newcastle’s first team on sky sports in the Asia cup a couple of months back. He looked ok as well, missed a good chance but didn’t look too much out of place.

It’s baffling me how he is this shite. Are we coaching him badly, are we not using him correctly? Something isn’t right.

Pressleys says he's not fit which is very strange given he's had a preseason at a Premier League club.
