ed, what do you think the chances of us signing Olivier Giroud since maiga has been reported in failing his medical? {Ed001's Note - it's always possible, though Arsenal are monitoring him so they may nip in ahead of you.}

Montpellier have said that they will not sell their top players in January as a Newcastle fan I'm aware that doesn't mean much but I just can't see it happening and then in the Summer he'll probably be out of our price range.

Agree0 Disagree0

Arent we hotly tipped for their captain though?

Agree0 Disagree0

After Maiga failing the medical, although if he is in perfect physical shape (alan pardew) cant see why he failed...i would expect us to go for Giroud and M,biwa..offer them 16 million euros for the two...quite franklt though, i would rather have Luuk De Jong from FC Twente...

As miaga fails his medical but there's 'nothing' wrong with his knee, this tells me that a better option striker is available to the toon. To me we are using this as an excuse to pull out of the deal and we will pursue other targets

Might be Because we dont want our 2 main strikers to losted every year to the ACN? Just a thought.

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed the acn is another reason that went into the thought process of the top brass at the toon

Agree0 Disagree0

May be that zaha from palace has a better sell on value... 10m for a 19year old.. Sell him at 23 for 25m+

Agree0 Disagree0

The kid has great potential agreed, can't see us paying that fee though for a un proven premier league player. If we was to pay that kind of money for a player it would be for an established international, probably for the continent as it makes better business sense for Ashley. Better value for money as home grown talents are usually well over priced

Agree0 Disagree0

Zaha is available to us for no more than 6m !

Agree0 Disagree0

I would like to see jordan rhoyds at us i know hes at huddlesfield but already has 20 goal this season and scored 4 2day
chris the toon

Agree0 Disagree0

They would have known that maiga would be at the acon before they gave him a medical, its not like they just found out now, so that seems unlikely. Im quite happy personally, he doesnt look like someone that can bring anything new. Wish we had got Long really

Agree0 Disagree0

Zaha for 10million would be a waste in which Ashley would not take.. Hes not even an out and out striker hes more of a winger.. Jordan Rhodes looks good but we would need to sign another striker if we got him as it would take time for him to grow into the league hes only 21 so plenty years in him

Agree0 Disagree0

Hooper from Celtic would be a great acquisition

Find the news about Maiga failing a medical abit strange just our medical team passed Ba and Marveaux on there's and the fact Maiga got a second opinion from a well respected doctor and he didn't see anything wrong at all. Could this be us playing games trying to lower the price? {Ed002's Note - No - it seems odd that the opinion from this other doctor was already available.}

Personally i think we have too many injury prone player and need to get players who never or atleast very rarely get injured

Agree0 Disagree0

Heard we may be looking to bring in Ryo Miyaichi from Arsenal on loan, tricky winger, could signal the end of Lovenkrands.
