I have it on very good authority that pardew is looking at sunderlands Anton Ferdinand. Watch this space

Believable6 Unbelievable41

Thought about this and even tho this is a mackem probz posting this it wouldnt be a bad transfer...hes a bloody good defender

Agree0 Disagree0

Are you that sad that you reply to your own posts? Only the person that came up with Anton as a target would agree it was a good signing. muppet.

Agree0 Disagree0

You can have him ......he's sh*te.

Agree0 Disagree0

Good one mackem The really funny part of the joke is that he will still be leaving your defence wide open week in week out next season...... good luck with that one

Agree0 Disagree0

Whay aye man. mackems trying to offload their s...e. we are gonna sign titus shambles as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed do you know whats happening with Enrique?
and any names of replacements if he's on his way out?

Believable8 Unbelievable2

{Ed042's Note - Didnt play last night with a hamstring problem but some reports saying it may be due to a deal being struck for him, hard to know really but Liverpool are apparently ready to make a bid, reported between 9 and 11.5 million.. other rumours saying Arsenal are negotiating a swap deal, all speculation though, nothing confirmed.. replacement wise, no new names, wont be either until the deal is done, only rumour ive heard is we may go back in for Neil Taylor, and although we have denied interest, I would say if we get close to season kick off without replacing him we will buy Bridge, think he is the emergency option to be honest}

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks Ed.
Would hate him to go to liverpool, dont want him to go at all but if he wants to leave then i could stomach him going to arsenal for 11/12 million.
Would hate Bridge as his replacement, Bridge is crap and is on massive mages.
Ive heard M'Bengue and Drenthe as names for replacements?

{Ed042's Note - Be ideal to get money plus Traore from Arsenal, could sign a good back up centre mid or really push for someone like Sturridge up front then but wishful thinking Id say.. Read an interview with MBengue in french paper the other day, hes going nowhere by the looks of it, already rejected a 6m bid a month ago anyway.. heard Drenthes name aswell but could be all paper talk based on him being surplus to requirements at Real and us needing a left back if Jose goes, besides, would be on a big enough wage, and to be honest Im not mad on him, good one week, terrible the next}

Agree0 Disagree0

You could be right about M'Bengue and Drenthe like.
Completely forgot Traore was still an arsenal player, was on loan at juventus right?
Who do u think is better Traore or Gibbs just incase we do ask for player plus cash from arsenal?

{Ed042's Note - Hard to know, Traore has played more first team football with being on loan at Juve, but Wenger has a lot of faith in Gibbs and he has developed from what ive seen.. more of a who would we have any chance of getting in a swap deal than a whos better scenario, and that would be Traore I think}

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah good point really lol
sorry for all the questions just it seems like you know your stuff, but do you know if we have any interest or are likely to sign Nicklas Bentdner? maybe in a swap for Enrique?
Think he would thrive at us being a regular starter.

{Ed042's Note - No worries mate.. know we had interest alright, know Arsenal have let him speak to a few clubs, but whether Newcastle were one of those clubs is another thing.. say his wages would be the stumbling block either way, on 52K at the moment at Arsenal.. but id agree with you, many wouldnt im sure ha but think if Bendtner was playing week in week out he would get 15 to 20 a season in all competitions, his record at Arsenal for minutes on the pitch is actually quite good despite what people think}

Agree0 Disagree0

Exactly People who slate him clearly havent watched him much. Hid record is pretty impressive considering most of his appearances have come off the bench.
I reckon if he came here(swap for Enrique if he wants to go maybe?) and we gave him the number 9 shirt that he could get 15-20 goals a season when playing regularly.

Agree0 Disagree0

newcastle's Targets :
Erdinc - 7-9 million
nzogbia- 10 - 12 million
sturridge- loaan or 15 million plus add ons

Believable14 Unbelievable29

Thats about 34 mill and then with there wages and agents fees that will total over 100 mill mate big mike will have a heart attack with those figures

Agree0 Disagree0

I think we will get 1 of those at best hopefully sturridge on loan but if not erdinc

Agree0 Disagree0

Honestly don't think you will get any of them plus who said you after Zog anymore? just a geordie wishful thinking

Agree0 Disagree0

More chance signing messi and ronaldo and thats coming from a mag

Agree0 Disagree0

Sturridge? DREAM ON ha good laugh

Agree0 Disagree0

Well how come bolton got him on loan plus chelsea have a lot of strikers so it is possible for sturridge to come on loan

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 14:34:36
just saw oba martins in newcastle city centre, just sayin

Believable12 Unbelievable32

It's now 14.41 and me and a work mate have also seen oba in Newcastle near the Laing art gallery/ city library

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes you have probably seen him, he will be visiting friends and family. They can do that you know.

Agree0 Disagree0

Grow up "just saying"

Agree0 Disagree0

Hey man the lads just pointed out he saw oba Why so negative? Do you want to ring the Samaritans 0800 51 51 51

Agree0 Disagree0

Just like Bentdner, Berbatov and Sturridge have all been in Newcastle this week "just saying".

Agree0 Disagree0

Glimmer of hope on the Danny Sturridge front with Daily Mail reporting that Chelsea close in on signing of Lukaku

Believable22 Unbelievable11

I really wouldn't be getting your hopes up, andre villas-boas likes what has seen of him and even if he was to go out on loan i'd imagine bolton would probably be favourites as he already shown he can score goals in their set-up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lukaku's gone to Arsenal and theres no hope Of you's getting Daniel Sturridge

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 13:26:34
I dont know if this is speculation or if this is genuine, but i have been informed that Newcastle have made an enquiry about taking chamakh on loan for a year arsenal are to pay 11 million for enrique and with that cash newcastle will buy drenthe from madrid. who knows like i say not sure if true but lets hope so

Believable9 Unbelievable16

I have heard this as well but I heard 10 million for enrique not 11

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 13:25:28
ED which striker do you personally think we will end up with? Im thinking Erding as i think it will all get sorted out in the coming weeks.

{Ed042's Note - He looks the most likely, agent is the stumbling block more than anything, can only hope Chelsea buy another striker, might get Sturridge on loan but doubtful, only other one I could realistically see happening would be Shane Long}

Believable18 Unbelievable1

A dnt understand why we wil pay 7 million for shayne long when if wee added 3 mill we could get nzogbia seems stupid

{Ed042's Note - Long is a striker, Zog isnt.. Be half the wages and agent fees too.. I would love Zog to sign but was asked who I think we will end up with, not who I would like, Zog is a pipedream, not gona happen as much as many want it to}

Agree0 Disagree0

Does Erding actually want to come though? id like him here but only if he wants to come.
Whats all the hold up for?

{Ed042's Note - Apparently weve had a bit of a bust up with his agent over the fee he (the agent) wants for the transfer.. agree though Erding himself hasnt once said anything complimentary about Newcastle or interest in playing for us, dont want a player like that.. and to be honest I think he would be a bad move from what I have seen of him, no other real interest in him whatsoever either which speaks volumes I think}

Agree0 Disagree0

I havent ever seen him play, just seen highlight vids on youtube(which tbf can makes anyone look good haha).
But yeah i want someone who is desperate to come here and play for the shirt.
Who do you think we would turn too if this deal falls through?

{Ed042's Note - As I said before mate, Shane Long, or Sturridge on loan.. at a stretch Rondon, not likely we would get him though}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ok cheers ed.
Think Long would cost too much personally, been quite impressed with him when ive seen him but 7/8 million is too much.
Would be pleased with Rondon or Sturridge but im not sure if either are that likely.

Agree0 Disagree0

Apparantly the hitch is that at the end of july psg owe erdinc a big bonus which his agent wanted us to pay nufc will most likely wait til august to tie up the deal, have u heard anything similar ed?

{Ed042's Note - Could be true, makes sense, agents are greedy, may want more than what he is due to earn off the signing fee, knowing Ashley theres no way hed pay a bonus payment promised by another club either, but havnt heard the specifics of what the fall out was about, seriously doubt something like that would get into the public domain though.. whats your source?}

Agree0 Disagree0

Nothing concrete just gossip pages and it was mentioned in an article on nufcblog.com but seems to add up with the earlier storys about the agent wanting a bonus paid then nufc suggesting no signings will be made til the U.S.A tour is over also think if enrique leaves for arsenal we should be pushing for a swap deal + cash for traore and eastmond niether seem to have first team football on offer and both would be good promising players wat u think ed?

{Ed042's Note - Been saying for a few weeks that any deal with Arsenal should involve cash plus Traore.. as for Eastmond, never thought of it but would make sense with Perch on his way out.. as you said both would be promising young players with affordable wages under our new structure.. hard to know how much cash on top you would get with both in the deal though, wouldnt imagine it would be much}

Agree0 Disagree0

Prob not to much but if its another one or two million could go towards a good utility player not a first teamer maybe some1 like clyne?unfortunatly i can see him going to liverpool do u rate robinson or spearing?

{Ed042's Note - If you were to get Eastmond, no need for Clyne really, know Eastmond is a centre mid but also plays right back, reason I mentioned with Perch going, and Gosling is very similar, plays RW, CM and RB... spearing i do rate, but I think Kenny does too.. Robinson looks promising, too early to say though, havnt seen enough of him}

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 12:39:57
Newcastle will join Rangers and Cardiff in the race for K.Miller. The deal could cost less then a million, personally i'd have him for that price.

Believable9 Unbelievable39

21 Jul 2011 12:21:58
Looks like we may have missed out on a promising youngster in David Hoillett as Blackburn look set to tie him down with a new deal to stay at Ewood Park

Believable5 Unbelievable11

He never was a option... just a rumours. Cheer up.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 11:36:32
hearing smith to forest...nah sell him to Leeds we love him really ;)

Believable2 Unbelievable9

Nout will be happening for atleast a week or two.

Agree0 Disagree0

There won't be any "selling" involved. The wages Smithy's on will mean that we'll be paying someone to take him as in our share of his pay. He's a decent bloke who gets stuck in. I wish him well. Steve Toon

Agree0 Disagree0

A good bloke who is nowhere near the first team but whose wages are crushing us

Agree0 Disagree0

Well I can't say we'd definitely take him as Bates is as tight as... but if Fat Cashley sees sense he'll do something to shove him in our direction. He shouldve come back ages ago tbh, particularly after the broken leg, he wasn't the quickest to start with but Smithy is struggling at Prem level. Hope something gets sorted - you need him off the wage bill, Leeds need an experienced guy to get us organised and focused, our defence is shocking and the transfer policy is a joke. We may not like each other that much but we are kind of similar with daft owners lol

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 09:41:11
Ben Arfa has been injured during the friendly yesterday and any news on it ed? -CB

{Ed042's Note - Wont hear anything definitive for 48 hours mate, to be reassessed then, went for a "precautionary x-ray" after game, wont take any further part in the tour of US, but on the upside apparently didnt seem in too much pain when he was being taken off so hopefully nothing serious}

Believable18 Unbelievable1

But remember he didn't look in that much pain when he broke his leg. I seem to remember him sitting up and applauding our fans. Just saying don't get your hopes up too high. I don't think it'll be that long term though.

Agree0 Disagree0

There's nowt wrong with Ben Arfa.... he's just avoiding the hammering you gonna get second game in.

Agree0 Disagree0

How many years has it been since yous beat us. thats right shut up. Hahaha -DP

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 08:04:55
Our lass works at NUFC ticket office, and the rumour amongst the staff is that one/two more players will be joining this window - one striker and possibly a left back when Jose goes to Liverpool. No-one knows who the striker will be, but it seems the club and especially Pardew and Graham Carr (chief scout) are dead set on Erdinc. If we dont get him now then we may wait until January... wtf??
Unfortunately, as much as i would love to see Sturridge at our great club, i dont think it will happen, and neither do the staff at St James' because there is a feeling of "emptiness" according to my girlfriend... almost all the talk is that they feel cheated, lied to and obviously a bit down about the coming season...
Cashley...please please please sign Sturridge

Believable26 Unbelievable10

If enrique wants european football then why would he go to liverpool.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 03:44:51
Sounded like we created well and played with flair at times. Marveaux and Ben Arfa beating players for skill and Albeid coming on and doing well also.
Only took Tiote 37mins to be booked
75mins though and no shots on target.
Hopefully that will push Pardew into getting a striker in sooner to settle in the club.
Psycho

Believable11 Unbelievable2

Honourable mention to mr smith for not getting booked ha ha ha ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

Says alot when our RB has the only shot on target in the 80+ minutes of the game.

Agree0 Disagree0

Remember its only pre season, its not like we really have to try

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 02:37:32
Just seen on caught offside we have offered Enrique to Liverpool for aquallini and 5 million seems a total waste if im honest with lukaku looking like being a chelsea player nows the time to move for sturridge or even kalou wouldn't mind defoe either i generally believe we will get a good number 9 just wish it would happen sooner rather than later {Ed002's Note - I doubt there is any credibility to the story involving Aquilani. His problem is he wants to be back at home playing in Italy - not moving from Liverpool to Newcastle.}

Believable5 Unbelievable13

Is that the reason why he is not involved in the friendly or has he picked up a knock?

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont know mate wouldnt want him at newcastle anyway to many midfielders

Agree0 Disagree0

I believe he was asking about Enrique, surely if he had a knock they would tell us, looks like he is going. In before they spend the rest of the transfer window looking for a left back and then just play Perch there.

Agree0 Disagree0

Caught offside talks a load of s**t, if there not doing there ridiculous lists there making up rumours

Agree0 Disagree0

We dont even need a new starting left back, shane ferguson is awesome as it is? we just need cover but im sure theres is another teen left back? did no one honestly see shane ferguson last year?

Agree0 Disagree0

He's currently injured and fairly unexperienced, we need a decent starting lb. News today however is that Liverpool are looking at hamburg's Jansen. Shame as he's a class player. Occasionally gets into Germany's national team.

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont think we will offer Enrique to anyone, anyone who wants him will have to make the first move

Agree0 Disagree0

Aquillaini cost liverpool 18 million i dont see them giving 5 mill and him, do you, ?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 02:34:05
Ankle got stretchered off. Don't think too bad though {Ed002's Note - I am assuming he was still attached to his ankle when it got stretchered off?}

Believable10 Unbelievable0

Hahah brilliant ed

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 02:25:41
Ben arfa injured...

Believable16 Unbelievable4

How bad does it look

Agree0 Disagree0

Just seen on nufc.co.uk injury isnt that bad he was withdrawn as a precaution and its only a slight twist

Agree0 Disagree0

Getting re-assesed today is defoo leaving tour, hopefully it is a twist although he has had precautionary x ray

Agree0 Disagree0

Hopefully he's fit soon and it is a slight twist as Ben Afra is a player I want to see destroy the Makems.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hopefully he is available for the start of the season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Which person clicks on unbelievable after the post i can only asume they think i, m a makem but they need to get in the know as its true and being in the sir john stand since since 1994 and then in the old score board stand before that think this qualifies me a magg...

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe they just don't want to believe the bad news haha.

Agree0 Disagree0
