pieters was at the game today, make of that what you will.....

Believable16 Unbelievable8

Hope he's just here to have a meal with Tim Krul. Don't rate him at all.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think I heard he regularly watched games here last season as well

Agree0 Disagree0

Confirmed ...got a photo with him!

Agree0 Disagree0

Stopping at the Sandman hotel, been here since friday. "Make of it as you will"

Agree0 Disagree0

Wot u mean you don't rate him he is class check him out on you tube bags of caps for holland I'd rather pieters than debuchy like santon at right back

Agree0 Disagree0

Denis wise has left now and we dont buy players based on you tube no more. You could make titus bramble look good on you tube

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree in essence with the comment about making anyone look good on you tube.

HOWEVER no-one could make bramble look good.

Agree0 Disagree0

You could just play the volley he scored against Chelsea for us 5 times over.

Agree0 Disagree0

Rangers fan here reports up north suggesting Shola Ameobi is joining us in a loan deal because of Mike Ashley buying shares in the club. Has anyone heard this?

Believable9 Unbelievable17

Doubt it we don't have enough strikers as it is anyway he'll be too busy slaying mackems

Agree0 Disagree0

No chance the Mackem slayer will leave

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't stay fit long enough to play for us lot never mind your team.

Agree0 Disagree0

I 100% guarantee that no Newcastle players will be going up to play in the 4th division of Scotland. It will never happen in a million years,what would any our players even youth players learn playing at that level? Just becuase Ashley is in talks to do with rights to sell the new Rangers strips, it is nothing at all to do with our club. And let's face it, why would anyone want to join them anyway, any player with a bit of sense would stay well clear considering all their financial problems, even youth players wouldn't want involved in stuff like that while learning the game.

Agree0 Disagree0

Pure bull, Shola will never leave. Especially for a 3rd division Scottish club

Agree0 Disagree0

Cheers guys and ed what do they mean by the Macem Slayer? {Ed003's Note - he tends to score against sunderland on a regular basis }

Agree1 Disagree0

Haha best nick name i've heard

Agree0 Disagree0

He ain't the best player but whenhe is on form or plays the makems he does well

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope Pardew realises the injury to Shola means we do need another striker -Shola is injury prone and misses large chunks of the season

Let's sign a RB and forward in the next week

Believable13 Unbelievable4

We needed a striker because Shola is injury prone. Now he's gone and proved it again we now need two.

Agree0 Disagree0

Two words.... Adam Campbell... First half hatrick for reserves against spurs, this lad is going to be some player believe me!

Agree0 Disagree0

Got to agree,forget age and give the lad aplace on the bench

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree,but let this lad develop slowly,i know if your good enough your old enough,but come on,he played half a hour at cardiff and played well,then our local paper done a massive piece on him,now people want him to partner cisse !!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Nobles averge for safcs resevers was 3in one so

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2012 15:24:15
And so it starts again. 'Debuchy flying into Newcastle for a medical' Whilst I'd love to see the lad sign, all these 'confirmed' sightings at Newcastle airport from 'reliable sources' doesn't arf make me laugh. That lads been in and out of Newcastle that many times owa the last couple of months he's done more air miles than the space shuttle..

Believable7 Unbelievable3

He said he will sign as soon as his arms stop aching with all the flying

Agree0 Disagree0

There seems to be a general opinion that we don't need another striker. At the moment our only strikers are the Dembas and the Ameobis as we lost Best and Lovenkrands, I cannot understand how that is good enough to survive Europa League, Premiership and the domestic cups. Even if Ivory Coast knock Senegal out of the qualifiers and we keep them for ACoN we still will not survive 4 tournaments with 4 strikers. Surely Pardew knows this and is making a smokescreen? Rhodes would be a good 3rd striker, thoughts?

Believable5 Unbelievable5

You're forgetting about Vukic who is also a striker but I agree we do need another one with more first team experience problem with Rhodes is that there may be other, bigger clubs who are interested

Agree0 Disagree0

What about Vuckic and Campbell Who are Bother better than Lovenkrans and Best
But if we are serious which I am still not convenced we are (1st Sept) will be the tester we NEED a quality Striker to give the se 2 lads a little extra time because both will come good

Agree0 Disagree0

Ba, Cisse, Shola, Cambell, cabaye(as AMC, IIRC 15 goals as AMC for Lille few seasons ago) and HBA as possible AMC . In my eyes our defense is the weaker link in terms of covering, close followed by fwds.

Agree0 Disagree0

I do think we'll do fine until January with 3 out and out strikers. But if Cisse and Ba will be off to ACON, i reckon we'll dive in for a striker.

Agree0 Disagree0

Because we play 4-3-3 and therefore the players you think of as wingers are also in the frame for the frontline (Ben Arfa for example), you need to start thinking more along the lines of forwards rather than center forwards

Agree0 Disagree0

We dont - we have ADAM CAMPBELL!!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

We need another striker without doubt.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would love Rhodes, but can see a loan deal for Carroll at last minute being the only option

Agree0 Disagree0

Adam campbell,not yet,he would need i.d. to get into the players lounge!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Douglas is a done deal and has been for a long time.

He is just completing his required residency and employment period in The Netherlands before moving to Newcastle United.

FC Twente accepted an offer 6 weeks ago and Douglas accepted terms on a 5 year contract shortly after.

A pre contract agreement was signed meaning that Douglas will become a nufc player on 27th August.

As reported a few times already Debuchy is close to a toon deal and will fly to England today before undergoing a medical. Announcement expected early next week. The club is trying to keep it under wraps but a leading Lille official has already gone on record to state that the French club are activiley pursuing a replacement.

It's quiet on the attacking front however as Newcastle wait on Andy Carrol's price to drop and/or Loic Remy to decide his future but there are murmurs of a potential bid for Iker Munian. Newcastle are putting their feelers out as they think they could sign him for £15 million cash up front as Bilbao struggle to control their finances. This is not confirmed however and could be pure hearsay and certainly sounds implausible.

One thing is for certain Newcastle United are looking for a major name to add to their growing squad in an attempt to send out a masada to their competitors.

Believable11 Unbelievable12

Evn though I doubt Newcastle are in for Muniain, I would love it if it's true. For me, he's one of the brightest talents in Europe.

Agree0 Disagree0

If we sign Muniain for 15million I will happily run round newcastle naked every day for a year! I've watched him since he was 16 year old torturing Real Madrids backline, He is unreal and has tremendous upper body strength for his age would be an amazing signing and would set the premier league alight, His skill is slightly limited compared to the likes of Neymar but his strength is so so so much better which is why he would fit into the premier league, he's a real battler and work horse.. BUT if we signed him and he done aswell as I think he would he'd only be at us a matter of 2 year or so unless we got into the Champions League, His price would easily double within that time though.. I highly doubt we'd get him for 15million though, release clause is something like 23million

Agree0 Disagree0

A well written piece. Hope to God your right.

Agree0 Disagree0

No idea who they are after but AP has said of another signing who may be a bit of a surprise so anything is possible

Agree0 Disagree0

Kinda begs the question - If it's a done deal, why has there not been any official word? And Iker Munian? I really don't think so!

Agree0 Disagree0

We will not pay 15 million for anybody.

Agree0 Disagree0

You know all this yet you don't mention Pieters and he was at St James today? Don't think i beleive you. Sorry.

Agree0 Disagree0

If we wont bid 15m for anyone ,how come we bid at least that much for andy carroll

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope to christ we get Douglas.he's a beast and would be immense for us

Agree0 Disagree0

If we get those 3 we could be looking at champions leage

Agree0 Disagree0

Does any other toon fans think carrol back at newcastle would be great,he gives us something else,sometimes its good to mix it up abit,i personally think we will sign him on the last night of the transfer window.Also wish we,d signed hoilett think he would of been a great asset to us.

Believable5 Unbelievable9

If our intention is to 'mix it up a bit' from time to time, wouldn't a small, pacy forward who knows where the goal is be a better option than just resorting to lumping it forward? Neither Ba or Cisse is bad in the air. I was thinking someone a la Shane Long, Kevin Gameiro, Emmanuel Mayuka...

Agree0 Disagree0

2 defenders requiere immediately as will be seen before the month is out
Another Striker is icing on the cake

Agree0 Disagree0

No he's a one trick pony,who Isn't worth 7 million never mind 20 million.Hope he see's out his contract at Liverpool on the bench.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi mackam here I come in peace. is it true that the toon are close to signing Ola Toivonen

Jayden hanlon-wells the mackem

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe but psv are asking for 11 million which neither newcastle or the player himself are happy about

Agree0 Disagree0

Just rumours mate. nothing concrete.

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed totally, would be great, but not to mix it up. Just adds more quality in depth

Agree0 Disagree0

No point in signing carroll,we dont put crosses into box,i bet we never put 3 crosses in all game v spurs.

Agree0 Disagree0

sorry but who is the eggman every ones on about sorry

Believable0 Unbelievable3

Also goes by the name of The Walrus.

Agree0 Disagree0

Look at previous posts. I think it's on the 14th August. Guys a legend like haha

Agree0 Disagree0

He comes up with some cracking rumours.

ToonrannosaurusRAZ

Agree0 Disagree0

Lambias looks a bit like a walrus, maybe hes gone under cover because hes as frustrated ad us with the lack of signings. Maybe he know we needed a striker for this weekend because cisse and ba are injured but the deal fell through or ba and cisse are fit to play. Maybe?

Agree0 Disagree0

He supplies eggs for the food at the training ground and he hears a few things whilst there so far his record appears to be one right one wrong

Agree0 Disagree0
