Carry on hearing we are going to bid for Lacina Traoré, can someone tell me if this is true or false?


Believable3 Unbelievable6

I can't see it, anzhi bought him for 15 million so would want atleast 12. Also wages would be upwards of 90,000 and he would have a significant drop to join us.

Agree3 Disagree1

I hope it is true, great young striker and a good target man 6ft8!

Agree2 Disagree3

It's a possibility anzi wanting rid of there top players he's on 1. 2 to 1.5 million euros a year he's valued at 14 million but if we can get him cheaper there will be a sell on value I know people are gona say he's on to much wages works out at around 100 grand a year so if we were to sign him mabe just mabe Ashley might offer him 80 knowing he could keep his sell on value there's always hope he is built for the premier league

Agree1 Disagree1

Why won't you all wake up and smell the coffee we are buying nobody. we might and I mean might bring in another loan signing but that's it.

Agree3 Disagree3

He would suit your style of play, hoof it forward and hope for the best, no skill, no quality, long balls to a target man. Direct direct direct. Even kinnear said your going to play like he's old Wimbledon. Your now stoke because stoke will actually play some passing football under Hughes so you will be replacing them.

Agree2 Disagree6

It wouldn't surprise me, we seemed I be really interested in him while he played for Cluj

Agree0 Disagree1

Ed do you know anything?

NUFC4L1FE {Ed001's Note - not regarding him, sorry.}

Agree0 Disagree0

At least we don't play football as bad as Sunderland!

Agree3 Disagree5

Don't know why you would want him.

Four solid reason:

One the price they paid for him - Yes Anzhi are stupid and will pay anything for a player as they have the money. But will they want to recoup any of this?

Two his wages are astronomical compared to our wage structure, meaning the player himself will have to to a pay cut - not happening.

Three We are not competing in Europe and he will be next season. Bigger players always want to play in the bigger competitions.

Four Why do we want him for, he will be no use when Cisse goes to the ACON in Jan/Feb time will he.

So you spend all this money on some and lose him for two months as well as your other senior forward. Great bit of business!

WE NEED COVER FOR CISSE! Someone who is there all year round NOT ANOTHER AFRICAN!

Agree0 Disagree0

There's no ACON this year though. It's held every 2 years. The only reason there was one this year as well as last year is because they moved. This was because if they stayed on the 2012, 2014, 2016 etc timetable it would be on in the same years as the Euros and the world cup and would be overlooked as a result. Basically it means this year we can buy as many African strikers as we like so long as by the end of the next summer window we sign one or two strikers from countries outside Africa to replace them every other Jan/Feb.

3-0 think on it

Newcastle are set to bid 5m for Belgium and Ajax centre back Toby Alderweireld, who the club have been chasing for almost 2 years.

Believable7 Unbelievable6

Not true no bids until After Monday
When damage assessment will take place

Agree6 Disagree5

Strange when we really need another striker and creative player

Agree2 Disagree3

Might be preparing for if Colo leaves next season because if we did buy him you'd expect him to be a starter with Mbiwa.

Agree2 Disagree2

A totally unreliable rag of a newspaper reporting that we are going to revive our interest in Alderwield with a fee supposed to be around £5 million meaning we'll probably end up paying around £7-£8 million for him.

Believable3 Unbelievable5

I'd be we'll happy with that even for 8/9 mil.

Very good young defender.

Agree4 Disagree2

Very good player. Hopefully we will get him. Not holding my breath though.

Agree4 Disagree2

It's a striker we need.

Agree3 Disagree2

And where would he play? Saylor, colo and yanga all in the same position

Agree1 Disagree1

We need strikerS

Agree5 Disagree1

No players in till new owners only players out

Agree3 Disagree5

We need both

Agree1 Disagree1

He'll play as right back

Agree0 Disagree1

Dont forget if we sign him, chances are colo will then leave to argentina

Agree1 Disagree0

Colo's already said he'll stay for this season but he may leave next summer.
