Modibo Maiga deal looking likely then which is good news, However we still need to sign 2 defenders.
Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Nathaniel Clyne(we've been linked with both) would be good signings.
Any news Ed? {Ed001's Note - only that both have been looked at, or I should say the teams they play for have been scouted and those players are believed to be the targets. It is difficult to be sure without anyone inside at the clubs in question. I did hear from someone within the playing staff at Palace that it was Clyne being looked at, though it could easily be the manager telling him Prem clubs are looking at him to get him to try a bit harder!}

Yes this is true we will also be looking at eric pieters for strenght in defence and a cheeky bid for oliver giroud to help our lad ba bang the goals in. Thanks guys

Agree0 Disagree0

Man U after Nathaniel Clyne it said in one of the papers today. Also Miaga coming for medical but wont be able to play till after ACN.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks for replying Ed.
And to the poster above, why wont he be allowed to play till after the ACN? If he signs start of jan the ACN doesnt started till the 2nd half of jan, or do the national teams get their squad together early? i cant remember.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just what the paper said, I think we might see him as a sub to let him settle in a bit.

Wheres Ferguson gone these days never seems to play and any news on Tiote or Transfer targets List ed {Ed001's Note - I am told that Tiote is available, for a price, but there have been no offers yet, that I am aware of anyway. Incomings I am still unsure of as yet, there has been a lot more scouting of the French league, so that should bode well if recent signings are anything to go by.}

Believable1 Unbelievable2

Is Alan Smith leaving in the Jan transfer window or what?! {Ed001's Note - only if the club can find anyone to take him. It won't be for the lack of trying to get rid, I assure you.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ferguson playing for reserves Tomorrow.

Agree0 Disagree0

These Tiote rumours from Chelsea by any chance?
The player does not want to leave and as of yesterday the club don't want to sell him.
Suppose Chelsea will do their best to unsettle him over the coming weeks if their past behavior is anything to go by.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't know about French buys 'boding well' but Marveaux has struggled to make the first team and has been injured (as expected), Cabaye has been up and down with his performances, Abeid hasn't made it to the first team yet and there are more fans slagging off Obertan than praising him. {Ed001's Note - I wouldn't count Obertan as a French buy, he didn't join from the French league after all. I was thinking Ben Arfa and Tiote (yes I realised after I posted it he came from Holland) at the time, but now when I sit and think about it, you do have a point!}

Agree0 Disagree0

Hold on lads before playing City United and chelsea we were flying (Im sure your all aware of this) cabaye has been a revelation with tiote, changing his midfield partner against three big club will surely effect his performance. Marveaux was injured through some of pre season so was behind the rest and as soon as he was getting fit he got injured again and jonas' performances would have kept most wingers out of the team, so lets not judge him just yet. Ben Arfa has done well for me and for 5 million how can we complain ? I think every one knew what we were getting when we signed Obertan hes doing better than I expected. Buying players on the cheap from France/Holland is better in my eyes than buying players of less quality from the Championship TRToon

Agree0 Disagree0

Think it's a little unfair to comment on marveaux getting injured, seeing as it was due to a bad challenge, nothing else

Sochaux striker Modibo Maiga is due to travel to Newcastle on Tuesday to undergo a medical test ahead of a move to the Sports Direct Arena next month, according to reports from France.

The Magpies were linked with a move in August for Maiga, something that resulted in an internal suspension for the striker. Newcastle were then reported to Fifa by Sochaux over their alleged approaches.

The 25-year-old is expected to move to the Premier League in a deal said to be worth between 7 and 8 million euro (£6-7million) and the Mali international will sign a four-and-a-half year deal with the club.

Maiga has scored four goals in 10 games for Sochaux this season after 15 goals in 36 appearances for the side last season.

Sochaux are now expected to begin their search for a successor to Maiga.

SAGEORDIE OUT...

Maiga and ba youre main strikers? both at anc in jan

Agree0 Disagree0

We can play best & ben arfa till they get back.

Agree0 Disagree0

A very good signing to have will score goals

Agree0 Disagree0

This is kinda deflating after reading it on lefoot.

we won't shell out 3mil more for Giroud? we won't pay 2-3mil less for Maynard? Doumbia, etc. ok, the latter may be a bit unrealistic but surely all these and many more are sure to have a higher sell on value than Maiga, which is what Ashley wants. I really don't understand this. I do hope I'm wrong though

Agree0 Disagree0

We know this is happening mate, and if you are a true geordie you wouldnt call it the sports direct arena, but ST. JAMES' PARK!!! you have been warned!

Agree0 Disagree0

Sjp or sda
ed wats happening with the stadium and shirt sponsors please reply {Ed001's Note - the club are holding negotiations with a number of companies over both naming rights and shirt sponsorship. Apparently the club are trying to get a deal done for both in one, I was told that is causing a hold up as companies are not keen on the naming rights.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Must say ive heard the same that companies wer in talks with are only willing to sponsor the kits and advertise around the stadium but want the ground to be SJP again as they feel it would cause to much disruption changing again and would result in alot of negative press towards the potential new company {Ed001's Note - not just that, there is a feeling that the fans will only see the stadium as SJP, so any money spent would be wasted.}

Agree0 Disagree0

SA GEORDIE
mate instead of telling me i have been warned!! (keyboard hero & probably 12 yrs old) its a cut and paste from something i read online , not some deep scouting connection or that i work at St James........ you tool.

SA GEORDIE OUT

Agree0 Disagree0

Must say I'm not utterly convinced or truly excited by this Maiga signing.
Just a feeling!
Would rather have Giroud or Cisse.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah i think Giroud would also be a class signing....
