SWINDON TOWN: Power in Ngoo talks

Swindon Advertiser: Lee Power Lee Power

CHAIRMAN Lee Power was last night locked in talks to bring Liverpool striker Michael Ngoo to Swindon on loan.

With Nile Ranger poised to leave, Town are keen to fill the void with Ngoo.

At the time of going to press yesterday, Power was in the north west attempting to negotiate a short-term deal for the 21-year-old.

Ngoo, signed by Liverpool from Southend in 2009, has scored five senior goals in 23 appearances spread over loan stints with Hearts and Yeovil, but has yet to turn out for his parent club.

The towering centre forward enjoyed a prolific spell in the Liverpool under-18 side during the 2010/11 season, where he finished as the club’s second top scorer with 15 goals.

Since then he has been selected as part of the England squad for the Under 20 World Cup in Columbia in 2011.

In January last year Ngoo was sent out on loan to Scottish Premier League outfit Hearts where he made 16 appearances, scoring five goals.

Last summer he was given the chance in the Championship by joining Yeovil on a season-long deal, but was sent back to Anfield just three months into his stay at Huish Park where he made seven appearances, five as a substitute but failed to score.

Not much added to yesterday's article.....

'.....Derby County, but only lasted 45 minutes in a 0-3 defeat after he was substituted for Andy Williams at half time...'

Worth giving him a chance, we need anybody over 5'9".... but we do need an experienced striker up front..

Slight change of topic, weather forecast for Saturday sunshine all day. Having played only 1 home game in 6 weeks pitch should be good if the ground staff have managed to drain the rain away.

Here's hoping for a good turn out to see two very good teams, much needed revenue would be very welcome to the board I would think.

Pants, I'm not sure, but for this window, unless a player is already out on loan to a club, the deal has to be short term, albeit hopefully with the option to extend.

Jake Jervis
He is back in the country and training at Portsmouth and they have said they are only looking at him nothing concrete so Town could still get this player who would be a great signing and very much like Mr Ranger. I thought Jake Jervis had plenty to offer and would only get better and certainly does score goals. Come on Coops they are out there just a case of searching. Need to offload Cox who has no future here. Gradually thinning down the squad and the sooner we get rid of some of Di Canio's left overs on high wages the better. No news on Navaro, I thought he was going to be an insurance job and is finished with football. Can't wait for Saturday and interesting that Posh have let Tyrone Barnett leave to Flint's club up the road.

Does seem odd that we are only now 'locked in talks' about this guy or any other player. We have known for weeks that Ranger and Ajose would be out of the picture, so these discussions should have happened then - with the signings announced as the window opened.

That way the new players would have time to train with us and be ready for the first match.

How come Tyrone Barnett has gone to City? As he states in tonight's Bristol Evening Post, he is a target man, adept at winning headers and bringing others into play, i.e. exactly what we need.

ps he's not a very good target man, he's hardly set the world on fire has he?
Perhaps he wants wages that require a club with deep pockets ( we aint got a Lansdown!), but never mind.......maybe we should go back to the good old days and sign just anyone regardless?

Can't quite see what point you are trying to make moonraker??

Barnett was one of the hottest properties around 12 months ago, that's why Posh paid over a million for him. City aren't flush with cash either at the moment, they are also operating on a seriously reduced budget, so I doubt they are offering much more than ourselves.

You also know what 'assume' means, don't you?! Where did I say we should have kept Ranger?? The guy has been in breach of contract, should have been given warnings and then dispensed with weeks ago, enabling us to save some money on his wages and arrange a replacement - the whole point and thrust of my thread if you had bothered to read it.

Yep and hopefully my small contribution will now find it's way into the clubs coffers rather than being trousered by short term "El Bandidos!"

Blimey Paddy Madden and Jake Jervis now that would have excited me but we have lost out on both what a shame and Scunny have offered more wages than us apparently for Madden who wanted to go back north.. Just shows how far we have fallen in the wage bracket but could never keep up with a certain Italians handouts. Hope this Ngoo deal gets done as it would be great to see both new players start Saturday. I see Barker is saying he is more of an attacking midfielder which we have in abundance so bit of a strange move. Just got to have faith in our management team to deliver and they have not done at all bad so far. What a shame Andrew Black was not around now as he would have loved this management team unlike the previous spendthrifts. Black in control now would have been perfect with this lot at the helm.

Jan Arga Fjortoft was decent as he scored goals in the top division which is harder than lower levels but sure Shearer did get 32 goals was it until Blackburn basically disarmed us by buying him and hardly playing him if I remember right. Liked Peter Eastoe, Peter Noble, but super Sammy Parkin was one of my favorites and even better when we had Parkin and Mooney. Now talking of partnerships what about Rowlands and Alan Mays now they were good.

Ahhh yes Pat Terry remember him elbowing a few heads in his days and like you say one hard player. Makes some of today's strikers look like poofs.

I remember Pat Terry, a very hard man and a fantastic header of the ball!? I remember the home match against Bournemouth i think in 1968 when he scored a hat trick in the first 10 minutes of the match at the Town End. Sadly he died in a nursing home 7 years ago aged 73.
