alan pardew is not looking to bring in a direct replacement for guthrie but will bring in a good cm from europe to play alongside tiote and cabaye. This will give cabaye a more free role to attack. Tiote will act as a dm and pardew is looking for a good passer to dictate the game with cabaye. Pardew will look to abeid and vuckic for back up and gutierre can fill in if needed. A new full back will join the club, if the deal for debuchy falls through carr has a number of left back targets so that santon could move to right back. Douglas is the most likely option at cb but if twente activate the clause to extend his contract other targets will be looked at. The future looks bright for newcastle.

I think we'll struggle to hold onto Tiote this summer, not because he doesnt want to be here, I think hes 100% committed to the club, but because a big club will come calling.
Obviously a CB is needed, lots of word of Douglas, and I think we probably need a couple of full backs.
I think we need another striker too, because Cisse and Demba will be off the the ACoN again next season.
Id say a CB, 2 full backs and a striker, as well as replacements for anyone who leaves

Agree10 Disagree6

We didnt pay 6.5 million for santon not to play him so we need 1 full back to replace simpson - matt debuchy deal to be done in the next week

Agree12 Disagree0

And if Santon or Debuchy were to get injured? Ever heard of a squad? Simpson is out

Agree3 Disagree3

U're joking right? Santon, Debuchy, Perch, Raylor, Tavernier at RB. That is a poorly prioritezed way to spend money. Football isn't just played at RB, why get a whole squad there.

Agree6 Disagree0

Is a full back just a right back? No, left back also counts as full back

Agree6 Disagree0

Left back, Santon, Raylor, Jonas

Agree0 Disagree0

Going for a 3-man midfield. Proven to be great, but who is the unhappy one up front? Could be the end of Ba it it is true.

Agree1 Disagree0

Mark Davies or nzonzi to replace guthrie should he move on....

Believable5 Unbelievable5

Romain Amalfitano or Jacob Butterfield will be Guthrie's replacement.

Agree17 Disagree0

I think we've already signed Guthries replacement, in Amalfetino.

Agree16 Disagree0

Davies yes... You can keep nzonzi

Agree0 Disagree7

This is making sense we will release offically signed roman ameolfimanto has better potential.Carrrs a good man Next Tiote?

Newcatle to sign Ricky Van Wolfswinkel if he impresses in the Newcastle Sporting friendly {Ed007's Note - I seriously doubt a club will decide to sign a player solely based on their performance in a meaningless friendly.}

Believable8 Unbelievable1

Why not? Hughton did it with Perch when we played Nottingham Forest? lol

Agree3 Disagree4

And Man city are arranging a friendly with LOSC Lille to see Eden Hazard

Agree2 Disagree2

'Worst Rumour Ever' everyone knows he's class why would we only sign him if he does well against us especially when we wont have a full stength team out

Agree3 Disagree0

When is the toon vs sporting friendly?

Agree2 Disagree0

Man City aren't doing it with hazard... Lille play their final game tomorrow in the french league and he will reveal where he's joining at the end of the french league season.

Agree1 Disagree0

ed, why do Newcastle never go into the South American market? there are some top young players there! such as Erick Torres of Chivas {Ed007's Note - I have no idea, sorry.}

Believable7 Unbelievable0

Cause of the work permit i assume

Agree3 Disagree1

Highly likely to struggle with work permits.

Agree3 Disagree0

Why?because of players like bassedas, gavilan and others...acuna was ok but only solano was a real success... Colo and Gutierrez already played in Europe so are smaller risk

Agree2 Disagree0

Don't you remember bassedas,cordone and gavilan,solano....

Agree0 Disagree1

Not many prem teams recruit directly from south america, not sure why, maybe complications in getting work permits etc plus there is the risk of players not being able to adapt to english football, for every carlos tevez there is a agustin delgado, remember him? ask southampton fans

Agree2 Disagree0

Its because they take too long to settle in our league, Pardew said it ages ago

Agree0 Disagree0


Agree1 Disagree0

Colo cam from spain, not directly from SA

Agree0 Disagree0

Erick Torres is a quality youngster

Agree0 Disagree1

South and Central America is a major market, but you have Work Permits to sort out, and they are only given to current internationals who have played a certain percentage of their national team's games, or in exceptional circumstances.

Jonas/Bassedas/Acuna/Colo are dual nationals, Jonas and Colo are Italian-Argentines, and Bassedas and Acuna are Spanish.

Michael Carrick to sign for us as soon as window opens. WhitleyBob.

Believable2 Unbelievable23

This is the worst one yet i'd say. he's in a title challenging side most weeks. and he's too old for Ashley and probably on too high wages.

Agree8 Disagree2

Ha ha oh my word why would he come to us!!! Wilmtoon

Agree1 Disagree1

Ain't gonna happen - he's thirty one this summer, too high wages and Man U aren't gonna let Carrick go

Agree1 Disagree0

*Shakes head with disbelief*
If people are going to make stuff up at lease make it believable

Agree2 Disagree0

Would not of thought so he,s 31 in july...

Agree1 Disagree0

Why would we sign carrick? we have already got cabaye and tiote, he would never get played. (CB) do you agree ed? {Ed023's Note - I read Newcastle could be interested in Roma's center back.}

Agree2 Disagree0

Carrick plus 12 mill for Tiote. I could see that tbh...

Agree0 Disagree5

Nah more like Carrick plus 25mil for tiote. If the "big" clubs want him, make them pay big for him

Agree0 Disagree2

I dont i can see us selling tiote for 20 million + then getting diame for free...

Agree0 Disagree3

Ed which roma cb i heard a rumour about simon kjaer but he is only on loan from wolfsburg {Ed013's Note - Not sure which CB, but Kjaer is only on loan and has been disappointing at Roma so will be looking for a deal elsewhere}

Agree0 Disagree0
