Well rested? Ready to attack the week? Don't take that attitude with me. I'm just being polite.

There is a good bit of reading below. Actual decisions have been made on at least one player. Some are close to seeing what their future holds. Others just continue to hand out in the lobby. Following Newcastle news on a daily basis, outside of the season, is eroding my sanity.

Last night I did something I rarely do. I watched the NBA. Figuring game seven would have drama, and being couch bound thanks to a pretty significant quad pull playing soccer yesterday, my time did not appear so valuable that seeking out something more educational would be required. While it was not terrible it surely was not something I would watch on a regular basis. Nothing against those who enjoy the sport. Just not my gig.

In truth I only needed to watch the final five minutes of the game. My investment was to see LeBron James win a title for the city of Cleveland. After 52 years the Factory of Sadness has shut down. If you have not seen ESPN's "Believland" take my advice and give it a viewing. I have seen it three times. Those people are long suffering, and they deserve this. The very economic impact that decimated the city is enough to stand on their side of the tracks.

In a year when the likes of Cleveland and Leicester City reach the peak it give me great hope that Newcastle can find a view from the top. Or maybe it means those two teams have sucked all the karma from the rest of the needy clubs.

OK, let's kick the ball.

Report: Lyon eye Kevin Mbabu loan from Newcastle United

The argument is that he is not guaranteed first team football considering Daryl Janmaat, Paul Dummett and Vernon Anita are in front of him. Eliminating the argument that at least one of those three will not be with Newcastle at the start of the season, none of them are so good they cannot be replace.

Remy Cabella's miserable tenure at Newcastle United is now officially over

Always seemed to small for the stage, but he worked hard. I wanted him to be successful. Deal is for £7.3million.

I did not like him on the pitch. I did not like him with a witch. I will not cry when he says bye. I will not feel like I will die.

The title pretty much says it all.

France Performance Typical of Moussa Sissoko

Point. For one shining moment we saw the flash of brilliance that hooked us many years ago.

Counterpoint. Shearer must have been watching a completely different game.

Newcastle United: Jonjo Shelvey isn’t worth it

I am strongly on record that Jonjo Shelvey was a bad signing. Will he be good in the Championship? Maybe. We need central midfield help.

Part of me thinks this is a cheap way to get more information with less real estate used. And how is that bad? Some Hatem Ben Arfa. More important, an update on the kits.

Speaking of kits.

I'm seeing these guys in less than a month. The official video has embedding turned off, but this will do.
