How reliable is the Daily express because Niall Hickman who works for them says that we are trying to get a deal done for Chris Samba.

"BIG" clubs looking at him

Agree0 Disagree0

Negative move for samba definitely a backward step

Agree0 Disagree0

Backward step. Are you on something?
He wont be coming cos M.A. wont pay the price. If we dont sign a striker to replace Ba we will go into freefall. A defender of Sambas quality is too rich and leave no money to spend on a decent striker. We were lucky with Ba. Can we do the same again? I doubt it.

Newcastle are chasing Billy Sharp and Chris Samba.

Believable21 Unbelievable11

What with our generous 8m fatmans letting us have . No chance it's bargin basement for us again if we get any one at all.To be honest i just want him to make his poxy money back and sell up and sod off.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bill sharp has a 1.85m release clause coming into effect in january, wouldn't be much of a gamble.
if we've only got 8mil i'd rather go for rhodes and tomkins though. samba will probably be too expensive

Agree0 Disagree0

Well said mate i cant stand fatty & specky we only cheap and hope 2 make cash of them i wish some russian bloke or anybody come and get rid of that cockney scum

Agree0 Disagree0

I 2 good players Billy Sharp is so underated

Agree0 Disagree0

We can forget Rhodes ,he's got his foot in a protective cast after injury playing against Carlisle.

Agree0 Disagree0

Still yet to be convinced that Sharp will cut it in the EPL. He is a big gamble, as the 1.85m wouldn't be easy to recoup should he fail.

Agree0 Disagree0

Someone has had a bid for Sharp rejected today - not sure which club though - SSN

Agree0 Disagree0

I doubt billy sharp would be able to play at premier league standards, he's not pacey enough and is too lazy. I know because i am both a newcastle and a Doncaster Rovers fan

nufc trying to tempt celtic with 4.5m bid for g.hooper.(WelshToon)

Believable17 Unbelievable18

Would need to be more then 4.5m as hes under contract and celtic dont need to sell!

Agree0 Disagree0

This won't happen Celtic don't need to sell and don't like us apparently.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm sure they dont "don't like us", else the fraser fostor deal wouldnt have been allowed to go through.

Agree0 Disagree0

F.Forster im sure will be included as a cash+player offer (WelshToon)

Agree0 Disagree0

The deal is already in place for the summer. That's why we won't be signing a striker this jan. It's cash and Forster for hooper, hooper and Celtic wanted to wait till the summer, we have agreed.

Agree1 Disagree0

newcastle scout watching derby west ham yesterday possibly james tomkins not too sure on him as he is championship, could be another perch.
i would hope we would go for someone like chris samba but dont think ashley will give pardew that sort of money.

Believable6 Unbelievable7

"BIG" clubs want samba

Agree0 Disagree1

So when he played in the prem and was class that doesn't count. Not every player that played in the championship is crap

Agree0 Disagree0

Tomkins I think is the most likely signing, around the 4m mark. Also, a different class to Perch, and is young enough to improve a lot.

Agree0 Disagree0
