So here is a list of potential ins/outs at Newcastle during January as we can expect a busy period:

CB: Plenty of names floating around main one seems to be Tomkins at the minute. Personally would like to see Samba or Gary Cahill as they are available and it would show real ambition if we landed Cahill

LB: Taiwo and Pieters both practical would love to see both arrive but can only see one.

ST: Maiga virtually done deal. However Giroud could arrive for the right price. Also heard a lot about Carroll for Tiote make of that what you will personally think Carroll & Ba would be a decent combination if we can add some things to Carrolls game.

Personally feel we need more cover at CM with Guthrie and Tiote nearing an exit.


Smith - No future at the club and massive wages.

Ranger - On a permanent basis.

Lovenkrands - Wants to go back to Denmark.

Simpson? - Could be nearing the exit with QPR and Aston Villa sniffing.

Guthrie - Again Villa sniffing around and no contract on the table as of yet.

Tiote - Yawn! Can see him going but we could fund quite a few moves however wouldn't be pleased if he left as him and Cabaye were starting to look the part together.

I'd like to know people's thoughts and what you think we need or who you think we will sign.

Simpson won't be allowed to leave according to bbc, but we know that can be b****cks.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think a lot of that is rubbish.
CB Cover - main name floating is Yanga Mbiwi. He plays CB and can cover accross the whole back 4.
Full Back - Pieters is the name sniffing around since the summer but only likely if Danny Simpson continues to stall on a new contract or goes in Jan

Striker - reports suggest Maiga deal done and dusted as has undergone a medical - will wait until I see the shift though im not sure that he is the player that we need.

One place we do def need additions is CM and im worried im not hearing any names.

Smith will stay and see out contract. Lovenkrands will stay for Jan to cover Ba but go at end of season with contract ending. Simpson will also see out the season espec with Taylor now out but poss move in summer if the right bodies come in.
Cant see Guthrie leaving espec if Tiote does.

Agree0 Disagree0

Pieters won't be available until the end of January cause of his broken foot.
Giroud won't be allowed to leave until the Summer.
I think it's out of M'biwa or Tompkins for CB and then possibly Taiwo on loan I read that we had opened talks with Milan about loan move.
Maiga deal looks pretty much complete.
Guthrie will sign a new deal. Hopefully we get rid of Ranger, Lovenkrands and Smith.
Would like to see some of the younger lads cover upfront when Ba and Maiga are at ACN like Airey, Donaldson, Hooper or Campbell.

Agree0 Disagree0

They are all rubbish !

Agree0 Disagree0

Would hate to see carroll back, it just means playing hoofball and nothing else.
Especially a swap with Tiote would make me mad

Cahill massively over rated

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont see how we need CM improvments. Even if Tiote is sold we can still play Guthrie, Cabaye, Gosling and Abeid in that position.

Agree0 Disagree0

Cahill is s**t look at Bolton worst defence in the league

Agree0 Disagree0

Nice to see you've been scouring the papers and websites and come up with something new.

Ed whats happened with tomkins? {Ed001's Note - nothing that I know of, it is just there have been rumours (I assume it must have come from a newspaper as I don't read any) that Newcastle have made a bid for him. No one I know of can back it up, but they all think it sounds plausible and could be true because Pardew likes him.}

Anyone think fat man would put a cheeky bid in for Torres at just 20m? Ed? {Ed001's Note - he is not for sale at 20m and not a chance would Ashley do the deal anyway.}

Believable0 Unbelievable15

Wages? {Ed001's Note - over 100k a week, well over, no way Ashley would even go near that.}

Agree0 Disagree0

The way torres is playing he is not worth 20p let alone 20mil he sulks to much if he canot get his own way. would be better of signing bubbles from ayr

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd rather have Carroll

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Dec 2011 13:40:45
I saw in the Papers today that we madea bid in the week for James Tomkins going in for an improved bid. Ed this true? {Ed001's Note - I can't find anyone willing to dismiss it out of hand or confirm it, so I am not sure. Everyone seems to think it would make sense but no one has heard anything, which suggests it is just well thought out paper talk.}

Heard you's are loaning Jay Spearing and Danny Wilson from us in Jan. This is good, they need the experience from a good contending club that can give them regular football, not fighting for premiership survival.

Probably also a sorry for last year for nicking Carroll. It's weird I do actually feel bad about it because he loves Newcastle so much, and you could see how torn he was, but at the same time I know he is going to be such a good player in years to come.

Good luck this year lads, you and us to kick Chelsea and Arsenal out of top 4! ahaha


Believable5 Unbelievable12

I dnt think spearing or wilson would make our strongest 11 sorry mate chris the toon and would be nice 2 be back in the top 4

Agree0 Disagree0

Spearing? the one place we are quite strong is midfield so I doubt there's any truth in it, plus Nufc had no loan policy in the summer

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't thank you enough for giving us 36m and a 25% sell on clause on Carroll. Plus we got BA for free !! We actually now play football, not '' hoof ball ''. Glad it worked out for everyone. Oh hang on ....!

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha! this guy was just trying to be nice, I feel sorry him....but i honestly can't stand the pool, not simply because of the Carroll thing. I think everyone at Newcastle is quite pleased with that! ....though i can't stand seeing Enrique play there. He would have fit our squad perfect this year

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont feel sorry for us mate,,,, as much as i enjoyed Andy C at the toon, the football we had to play to accommodate him bored the absolute Shiite out of me ,now we have a team that work for one another and can keep possession for more than a minute and has me enjoying the game again....

Agree0 Disagree0

Liverpool are probably the only team I actually can stand in the EPL. I also have a lot of time for thier fans as they very similar to ours. I also remember when we played at Anfield on the anniveray of Hillsbourgh and the mutual respect both sets of fans had for each other

Agree0 Disagree0

Wilson would get into our team like he would be a class partner for Colo or he could easily play Left Back instead he can play either position with ease, Spearing is a cracking player aswel but with a fully fit Tiote and Cabaye he would never play

Must say a like Liverpool as a whole, The tradition of the club is great, better club than Man Utd in my eyes and always will be they got done over by the Americans but now are owned by real people who are trying to care for the club.. Obviously you robbed us of Enrique and a dont like yous for that ha
