Cisse given No. 9 shirt!

Believable27 Unbelievable0

17 Jan 2012 22:22:16
Wow. Who saw that coming! Does seem slightly strange considering ACON...Lets hope we get Erdinc as well then!

Believable3 Unbelievable14

Why exactly? you really expect MA to spend 7mil on cover for ONE MONTH

get real. we were blessed today. appreciate it as is. you can't really expect ANY club to base their transfer policy on questionable short-term solutions. it's the same argument i was deriding when people would say "we can't possibly be thinking about signing another african as he'll be gone for four weeks". it's completely short sighted

Agree9 Disagree3

Understand your point, just think we could do with another decent striker, at least on loan, Shola's only getting worse!

Agree2 Disagree0

Touche. fair enough everyone seems to like Shola and clear enough he won't be going anywhere, and i hate to say it about such a nice guy but he's woeful.

Agree1 Disagree0

i am going to spend even more money on cisshoko and samba

Believable2 Unbelievable5

Dont need samba at cb, cissoko looks class on u tube def buy for lb position

Agree4 Disagree0

Pardews done an interview talking about Tavernier in which he goes on to say "With Santon, Ryan, Danny and Fergie, we're blessed with full-backs."
Seems unlikely that we'll go for cissoko.
But who knows, we just spent 10 mil on one player!!

Agree5 Disagree1

How r u going to buy samba and cissokho

Agree1 Disagree1

cisse finalised move to the toon

Believable9 Unbelievable2

Come on toon

Agree8 Disagree2

17 Jan 2012 21:21:06
Papiss Demba Cisse has signed for us on a 5 and a half year deal. Come on the toon!

Believable9 Unbelievable3

WOOOOOOP can see Demba Ba leaving his friend and National ST partner now can you?

Agree8 Disagree5

Could be a great signing but would be even better if Demba stays as well...let's hope he's still here in Feb HWTL

Agree4 Disagree1

Cisse given the number nine shirt, most be class,

Agree7 Disagree2

I would waited until the summer to see who is the better player between Ba and Cisse, then given them the number 9 shirt. We may have 2 stikers on the pitch who can score goals. Everyone else seems to play 1 up front and we will have 2 beasts! HTL

Agree0 Disagree1

Ba doesn't want the no9 shirt apparently.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2012 20:08:38
Imagine Newcastle signing cisse, samba, cissokho*

Believable8 Unbelievable3

That would be incredible, a day ago I would have said no chance, but then a day ago I wouldn't have seen us signing Cisse, so who knows what MA has planned! HWTL!

Agree5 Disagree2

Don't think he's feeling well haha

Agree2 Disagree1

Imagine newcastle SELLING krul,tiote,collo ! dont get to excited mate cos goin on cashleys past record if hes spent 10 mill he wil b selling som1 to get it back twice ova !

Agree4 Disagree0

Im a toon fan and agree with the above post . dont trust ashley

Agree3 Disagree0

Can you tell me when Ashley has sold a player who doesn't want to stay at Newcastle? Remember Carroll asked for a transfer, Enrique refused a contract offer as did Nolan and Barton (well rid) engineered a move all summer through his twitter account, we have to start believing that Ashley only has the interest of the club at heart, cheap season tickets, prices frozen for TEN YEARS, how many club owners have done that? Ok the name change is disappointing but liveable.....P Mon
{Ed017's Note - I believe the Club is being run the right way. Players coming in who actually want to play rather than just coming for big wages. Took time but I think we are going in the right direction both in footballing and financial terms.)

Agree6 Disagree0

hi edd just came in from work do you know anything about this cisse deal or is just crap as i,ve checked papers and that and theres nothing there thanks>> {Ed001's Note - he has been taking a medical, that can take days to complete, depending on how thorough the insurers demands are. So it might be a couple of days before he actually signs.}

Believable2 Unbelievable8

Hi Ed - SSN were reporting earlier that Cisse had to be back on a 'plane to the ACN by 8pm this evening. Seems unlikely but if thats true, 8pm has come and gone and still nothing.

DomW

Agree2 Disagree2

The only thing the player need to be around for is the medical his agent will sort out his contract. So if he has gone back all i can say is that its gone well or really bad.

Agree2 Disagree2

17 Jan 2012 17:19:28
Anymore news on the cisse deal?

Believable2 Unbelievable1

Hes having his medical as we speak

Agree5 Disagree1

Just paper work mate should be r new n9 by ten tonight

Agree6 Disagree1

Apparently he has to leave Newcastle by 8.00pm - according to the Newcastle based Sky Sports reporter - so I am guessing it will be concluded by 8.

Agree3 Disagree3

17 Jan 2012 17:09:09
cisse was recomended by ba as his replacement as he is going to psg

Believable2 Unbelievable17

Ohh i can smell an SMB haha PSG are signing Tevez.

Agree11 Disagree1

What utter rubbish, why do you even come to this site? Ba is going no were he has said it himself.

Agree11 Disagree1

Cheers, bitter SMB

Agree8 Disagree2

Not as his replacement; as his strike partner. Try to be a little bit optimistic...at least for now, we're 6th ffs!

DomW

Agree8 Disagree1

If and thats a big if BA gos he will go to a top english side but hes knee is a prob not for nufc he was a free but pay 10mil than its a prob

Agree5 Disagree3

He is goin nowere stop wit the bad thoughts

Agree7 Disagree0

Dont think so cisse says he's coming to play along side his mate demba ba ...geordie tom

Agree7 Disagree0

Is that y psg r goin for tevez?

Agree4 Disagree0

SMB. Don't be bitter Hesky on his way.

Agree6 Disagree1

Is that a jealous makem I can hear?

Agree7 Disagree1

Sad mackem.....have fun with erdinc! :)

Agree6 Disagree1

Llambias said Ba's not going anywhere, and there will be money left to sign a CB.

Agree7 Disagree0

Ba has already sed he can't wait to play alongside cisse and Newcastle don't want Ba to leave via the release clause. So this is excellent news to help convince Ba to stay with is.

Agree4 Disagree0

17 Jan 2012 16:22:03
WBA have bid for Ridgwell according to SSN, may see some progress on this if we are still interested in him.

Believable1 Unbelievable4

It has just been rejected mate

Agree3 Disagree2

17 Jan 2012 16:02:07
in Mexico it is said that the team is interested in signing Mauro Zarate on loan.
ed, it is true?
{Ed008's Note - He is currently on loan at Inter from Lazio so i can't see that happening.

Believable0 Unbelievable7

QPR are leading the chase for Zarate

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Jan 2012 15:52:24
ED, what dyou think the chances of MA deciding to sell BA now? I know he would cost less than Cisse wherever he went, but just a worry! {Ed008's Note - It would surprise me if Ba left because Pardew always wanted to buy another striker to play with Ba and thats why Cisse could be signed.

Believable5 Unbelievable3

But did he not say he was NOT buying a striker in this window ?? so why now {Ed008's Note - To surprise you Newcastle fans ?

Agree2 Disagree1

Or as they said they wouldnt buy unless a brilliant deal/talent cane forward and
Cisse is heavily recommended by carr

Agree3 Disagree0

"to surprise you newcastle fans"...we're always surprised - we're just not used to GOOD surprises!

Agree6 Disagree0

"Or as they said they wouldnt buy unless a brilliant deal/talent cane forward and
Cisse is heavily recommended by carr"
Not just by Carr...but Demba Ba himself..And we have been looking at this lad since the Carroll saga, but they wanted a reputed 12-13 million for him and we didnt want to pay that. We are now in the positon where the deal suited US...

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Jan 2012 15:50:54
Cesena are ready to let Yohan Benalouane leave in January.

We have been linked with him. Come on Ashley you have shocked us with Cisse how about this lad to add cove rto the back four. HWTL.

Believable9 Unbelievable1

17 Jan 2012 15:43:35
10 mil for cisse, surely that makes sissoko unlikely? Unless MA is really splashing out?
And what about a centre half?
Putting a pessimistic spin on the cisse transfer yes, but i thought our main target was a cb?
Also, cisse is at ACON so he'll come back with demba and cheik. This means we'll be sort for a month or so up top

Believable2 Unbelievable2

17 Jan 2012 15:20:45
Reports comming out of Holland claim that Newcastle United are on the verge of signing Ryan Babel for 6.5m.

Joe90

Believable1 Unbelievable17

Why holland he plays in germany and for freiburg same as cisse

Agree0 Disagree3

He plays in spain

Agree0 Disagree3

He plays for Hoffenheim. Maybe becasue he is Dutch that reports are coming out of Holland....?

Agree1 Disagree0

Babel plays for hoffenheim

Agree1 Disagree0

Babel plays for Hoffenheim genius, if your gona be a know it all at least get it right, can't see that deal happening

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Jan 2012 15:12:42
Newcastle set to sign Papis Demba Cisse for 10mill and erdinc going to sunderland now supose we cant have both of them but another demba shud do just fine by me

Believable9 Unbelievable0

Erdinic wont be going to safc, more likely to rennes in france.

Agree3 Disagree2

Cisse was steve bruce target not mon but if yous get him and keep BA then good luck think last game with 1 shot all game might have had something 2 do with it

Agree1 Disagree1

Cisse was not bruces target get that right he was mon

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2012 14:29:53
It's all over twitter that Cisse is in Newcastle and a deal is close for him. Anyone know if he is at ACON?

Believable7 Unbelievable0

Apparently released to complete move

Agree5 Disagree1

Yes he is Hes BA's strike partner

Agree5 Disagree0

He is French.. Why would he be at ACON?

Agree0 Disagree10

Yeah he is deal has t be done today as he flys out tomorrow t meet demba with his strawberry syrup

Agree4 Disagree0

Hes flown back to tie deal up then going back! done deal by tonight. whoop whoop hes a beast! eey ii eeey iii eee i o!

Agree5 Disagree0

He is flying from Africa to Newcastle today/tonight to complete a medical tomorrow.

Quoted figure is 10m (good price) and the fact that Freiburg have signed a new striker makes the deal even more likely.

Will work well with BA up front as they play together with Senegal but going to be away for the next 4 weeks though!

Geo

Agree5 Disagree0

Deal has to be done the day and he will be flying straight back out after deal done
marknufc

Agree3 Disagree0

Yes he's there

Agree4 Disagree0

Yes he is, cracking signing @ 7.5m

Agree3 Disagree0

Good days ;) Toonshack

Agree3 Disagree0

Sky footage showing him at training ground.

Agree4 Disagree0

Yea, he is only flying out for the medical then jetting right back for the ACON

Agree4 Disagree0

Who plays upfront for senegal


ba papiss cisse or sow

Agree0 Disagree0

Supposedly Cisse gets picked before Ba but I guess we'll have to watch ACON to find out and to see our strikers hopefully play along side each other.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2012 14:28:31
accounding to Sky Sports Pappa Demba Cisse is having a medical right now and a deal will be concluded shortly..WOW thats a shock to be huge statement of intent.. and in other news twiiter rumours suggest Erdnic was seen at the training ground? shorly not both?
And CB nota clue heard Samba for £6.8M or the French Tunisain defender for Cesna in Serie A

Believable5 Unbelievable1

The thought of pappis and demba up front for us has made me a bit hard lol

toon fanatic

Agree8 Disagree0

Failed medical ! Typical !

Agree0 Disagree11

Lol on wiki he plays for the toon... lol actually they both do!

Agree3 Disagree0

WHY WHY WHY are we having 2 ANC ST's as first choice we will always be short in JAN/FEB seems a bit silly to me

Agree3 Disagree5

To the toon fanatic it made you hard it made me hard and jizz in my pants could this be the signs of intend that we have all been looking for

Agree1 Disagree1

ACN is every two years, not every year.

Agree3 Disagree0

So you can have a wet one ...when they get back from playing in africa m8 ...geordie tom

Agree0 Disagree1

The ACON is only every 2 years so it's not that big of deal, who knows, by the time the next ACON comes around we may have another decent striker to partner best?

Or perhaps MA is thinking he may recoup most of the Cissie's fee by Ba leaving in the summer?

I hope not as I would love to see Ba and Cissie up front

Agree1 Disagree2

Actully to piss on everyones fire, there is another ACON next year due to the world cup.

Agree3 Disagree2

ACON getting moved to the summer every two years, odd number years, 2013, 2015 and so on, so you needn't worry about cisse and ba being gone apart from this year

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2012 14:27:35
SSN say Newcastle in Advanced talks with Papiss Cisse of Freiburg...asking price £10m

Believable3 Unbelievable1

17 Jan 2012 13:53:24
Anything on a move for unsettled scott dann, wud be perfect signing for us, Only issue I see is if they want player plus cash, cud offer simpson of we sign sisoko too

Believable0 Unbelievable3

twitter reporting erdinc at nufc to discuss personal terms as fee been agreed?? (WelshToon

Believable0 Unbelievable7

Its cisse

Agree4 Disagree1

Papiss demba cisse all over twitter and sky

Agree4 Disagree1

Erding is there as well on sky sports as he arrived earlier than cisse but sky sports never spotted him but he just left in a car and that is how ss spotted him now

Agree0 Disagree1

If he had been spotted by ssn then they would have at least sed something but they havent so that leaves me to think this is nothing but crap

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2012 12:16:14
Supposedly we have made an enquiry about vorm at Swansea, can't see Ashley willing to pay for a player like that to sit on the bench. Probably will be our first choice if Tim krul gets sold, hope he doesn't.

Believable1 Unbelievable5

Just read this, along with alleged quotes from Sporting Director of Swansea; not as good as Krul in my opinion.

Agree5 Disagree1

How can people disagree with this? It's on sky.

Agree0 Disagree4

17 Jan 2012 11:54:42
i really cant see mike ashley wanting to pay around £6m-£8m for Aly Cissokho. he is a great player. if we want to push for europa league football, then mikes going to have to get the check book out.

Believable7 Unbelievable0

17 Jan 2012 11:54:15
edrinc is a clown, we went for him in the summer and he said no. We go back again now and he says no. He aint gonna play for manu or manc or any of the other big teams so lets just forget him and focus on a player who wants to come. Philips from Blackpool looks like a steal...

Believable7 Unbelievable3

17 Jan 2012 09:09:26
Cisschko rumours persist but ... The journal is reporting that it's just rumours , ed what do u think ? {Ed001's Note - I really can't see Ashley spending that much on a left back, but he would be an excellent signing, in my opinion.}

Believable3 Unbelievable2

What gets me about these rumours is that everyone we get linked with the club deny it. What has Cisschko got to gain from making this up. More to the fact what has Fergie got to gain from saying we bid for Ravel. Looks like the same as the last window were names are branded around and we buy no one cos fatty can't get players on his terms. Someone needs to tell him that for to progress to the next level the players we need don't come cheap.

Agree3 Disagree0

I can't see it being rumours when cissokho has said the clubs are talking

Agree2 Disagree0

I don't think the club have denied the cissokho talks. they've probably talked and no one knows much more than that. cissokho may have heard newcastle enquired and made it public to hurry up any other club that might have an eye on the situation.
as for ravl morrison - pardew eluded in last weeks pre-match conference that the bid may have been made by someone else in the club - llambias/ashley. he said that he had no knowledge of a bid himself.

Agree1 Disagree0

I think people may be reading too much into these talks. It could basically be MA asking the club how much a player would cost, being quoted 8m, offering 2m, being rejected, then never going back in for the player.

Thats how the fat man works.

Agree1 Disagree1

We can't moan about managers such as Redknapp talking about players at other clubs,such as Demba, then not be happy because our heirarchy refuse to name names of players we are pursuing
Pardew and co are at least doing things correctly

Agree2 Disagree0
