Would quite happily take Shane long and maybe try an do a deal for pavlychenko with the rite competition they could turn out to be good strikers

Believable5 Unbelievable12

I have always like Pav and think he would be superb if he started more games. In fact, I would prefer him to Sturridge. Dont get me wrong, Sturridge is on the up, Great player, but I think he is out of our price range. Still a bit of growing up to do but will be class.

Would love to see Toon go try sign Hoilett from blackburn, hes gonna be top player. Hope new forward signed soon, Erdinc or Long. Also think we need some more defensive cover.

Sturridge deal looking less likely now, and to be fair, would go back after 1 season anyways to replace anelka

Believable8 Unbelievable4

Al it takes is one season to fall in love with our fans and to get us in to Europe then we can splash the cash and go for the big guns

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

You're well named as Toon Barmy. It's been on here more times than Daniel Sturridge or the Zog. Still not good enough though. SteveToon

Agree0 Disagree0

Who snatched my alias? You'll never hear any tosh from my mouth like that, Carlton Cole my arse

Erding will be our only other signing, unless players are sold.

Wigan are considering a £2.5m move for Newcastle's Wayne Routledge if Charles N'Zogbia joins Aston Villa.

Believable18 Unbelievable8

Thats true but stupid why don't they sell N'zogbia to us and get routledge in part exchange.

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree, Routledge plus 7 million for Nzogbia surely would benefit both sides.

Agree0 Disagree0

Because the management are not pi** wise. what they will do is sell enrique, barton, instead on the 31st august with one minute to run in the transfer window. mark my words

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, is there anymore interest in wingers. I know number one priority is striker, but just wondering what happened to some of the wingers we were linked with like barnetta, Miralem Sulejmani or Ryad Boudebouz. , In the one to two players that are still to be brought in is a winger a target?thanks

Believable5 Unbelievable2

{Ed042s Note - Im sure there is interest in other positions but what has been confirmed is there wont be money for these signings until we sell a few players.. As far as the ones you have mentioned.. Barnetta has been linked with us since 2007 believe it or not, so at this stage I would only be convinced he is the day I see him holding up the shirt for the cameras.. Sulejmani is a good player and we were rumoured to be looking at him but I think he may stay at Ajax as he has recently spoken very highly of De Boer... Boudebouz has been linked with both us and Liverpool but interest seems to have cooled, and Sochax manager has only said this week that both Boudebouz and Martin are happy to continue playing with them this season unless the perfect offer comes along... Personally think we are okay on the wings, but need a promising young centre back, good back up for Tiote and Cabaye in centre mid and obviously then a very good striker with a replacement for Enrique if he leaves}

ED is it true that we will sign Erdinc at the beginning of August?
Ive heard that we have agreed a fee, agreed personal terms and he is just waiting for a bonus payment from psg(Which he wanted us to pay and we rightfully didnt want to) which he gets at the end of july.

Believable8 Unbelievable1

{Ed042s Note - Theres no guarantee we will sign him at the end of August regardless of the bonus situation, if PSG sign competition for him between now and then there may be a good chance we will, but this bonus payment story has not been confirmed by any reliable source, and although a lot gets into the media, issues of that nature do not get into the public domain generally... it may well be the case, but whether it be true or not is not the only thing holding up the transfer.. because of PSGs recent cash injection, once he has a shot at first team football he may well stay, future would hold better wages, european football etc only way he will 100% leave is if there is no place for him at PSG, plus his agent has had a serious falling out with Newcastle over this whole situation, may have something to do with him pushing for us to sign both Erding and Matuidi, now we wont pay what he wants in signing or bonus fees for Erding, and we have pulled out of making an offer for Matuidi because of the 13m price tag.. think Newcastle and Ashley is playing hardball with them, putting them in a position where they have to accept what we offer, but this may take some time.. then again all this bonus payment end of July stuff may be 100% accurate and he will sign straight away.. genuinely think theres more to it though and our relationship with his agent is not on good terms}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ah ok cheers ED
Do you know if Erding actually wants to come here or has he not commented on the situation?
If we have agreed personal terms(if true) that would suggest he is interested in th move right?

{Ed042's Note - Only thing I have heard the player himself say so far is he wants to stay and fight for his place at PSG, havnt heard him mention Newcastle once or an interest in coming to us.. again this "agreed terms" business is much the same as the bonus story, actually came from the same article.. there is no confirmation from any source of real substance to say that he did actually agree personal terms, how would this info get out there unless his agent, himself, ashley, llambias or pardew said it? its all speculation, may be true, may be not.. think the more important question fans have to be asking really is, do we want a player who isnt really up for playing for us? or is he actually a quality player? why is there no interest from other clubs if he is quality? or could we get better for the money he will cost? what do you think yourself mate?}

Agree0 Disagree0

All the stuff about all this information getting out is a good point mate, there seems to be no reliable source.
Personally i think he would be a good buy for around 7-8 million. He is the type of striker we need and i think a few people have been put off because he didnt have his best season last season, but before that he was regarded as one of the hottest prospects in France. But as you said we should only sign him if he wants to come.
And ive actually heard there is strong interest from lille in him(not from the guy who just posted at the top of the toon page lol) Also heard Tottenham were looking at him at one point.

Agree0 Disagree0

The Toon are looking at free agent Luis Boa Morte according to the Daily Mail and BBC football gossip page.
Think he will be a good signing for us.

Believable4 Unbelievable23

Where would he play, we would just be paying weekly wages for a couple of years

Agree0 Disagree0

Why? He is 33, probably want loads of cash. Surely this is not a viable option,

Agree0 Disagree0

Boa Morte isn't a free agent as he signed a new 2 year contract in 2010.

Agree0 Disagree0

He's going to saints

Agree0 Disagree0

Utter sh*t

Ho ho ho

Newcastles bid has been accepted by PSG for erding we are just waiting on personnal terms, personnaly if he does not want to join let him stay he does not look THAT good anyway. -DP

Believable13 Unbelievable5

He plays really good some games and then plays terrible.

Agree0 Disagree0

Everything has been agreed with club and player its his agent who is holding the deal up as if Erding stays until August his agent gets a big bonus and hes been trying to get us to pay tht bonus for him to come now but we wont do it, he will definately come at some point in august more likely first week poss 2nd in time for Arsenal

Agree0 Disagree0

The bid was excepted ages ago its just newcastle fell out with his agent so bassically they either some to some sort of agreement or erding will have to swap agents and even then hes already said he would want to fight for his place at psg so i highly doubt he will end up at newcastle.

Agree0 Disagree0

Our bid was accepted ages ago he'll sign in august after psg have paid his bonus if he'd signed before august we'd of had to pay his bonus as for not that good have u ever seen him play? Hes great technical footballer with bags of speed, he was psgs player of the season and the season before he was banging in goals for fun hes only 24 this lad will be a quality signing if we pull it off

Agree0 Disagree0

A fee of 8m Euros was agreed earlier in July, aparently terms were also agreed with the player. The issue is a 1m euro plus loyalty bonus that is due to the player from PSG if he stays beyond the transfer window, not the end of this month as some people are reporting. At first Erding's agent asked PSG to pay up as the player had not asked for a transfer, when PSG said no Erding's agent then asked us to pay the bonus The cheek of the man.

Erding is a very skillful player, quick and fairly strong with great technique, not so good in the air though, but should be a perfect foil for Demba Ba.

His finishing is excellent, if the side can create chances for him he certainly knows where the onion sack is...

I think he will be a great player for us if the club can sort the deal out.

ToonBarmy

Agree0 Disagree0

He's noted at PSG for his inconcistency. Graham Carr (who I like) must rate him highly but there is a question mark against him. Steve Toon

Do you think there is any chance of Newcastle going in for Dundee United striker David Goodwillie now Dundee United are out of Europe ED? {Ed007's Note - I wouldn't imagine he would be on NUFCs radar, it looks like Cardiff are in the driving seat for him but Rangers are also interested along with another couple of Championship teams. His impending court case is holding up any deal so far.}

Believable4 Unbelievable6

Was at Tannadice on Thursday night and he looked no better than Championship at best - first half he didn't want to know and second half when he put some effort in he didn't look good enough

Taarabt's move to PSG is almost completed, which will push Erding further down the pecking order. Deal to Newcastle to be completed in the first week of August.

StuToon.

Believable15 Unbelievable12

Not sure why we want to buy Erdinc cant get in PSG team in inferior league

Agree0 Disagree0

He's a Graham Carr choice like and he's already unearthed some gem's for us so I'll trust in his opinion like.

Agree0 Disagree0

Erincs only been pushed out since new big spending owners have come in carr has tracked this lad for over a year he was psgs players player of the year last season this lad is class he'll be in black n white in the first week of august

Agree0 Disagree0

Well he scored well above 20 goals Last Season and was PSG player of the Season, Maybe thats why Newcastle want him.

Agree0 Disagree0

To be fair I would prefer to see erdinc rather than rondon simply due to our track record of buying players from spain ie owen, luque, xisco, marcelino compared to robert, ben arfa, bernard, ginola from france. for some reason the players signed from france seem to do better

Agree0 Disagree0

Apart from tiote whoelse has he found?

Agree0 Disagree0

Ben Arfa

Agree0 Disagree0

You cant really call Ben Arfa a find he was 1 of the most watched young players in the world 2 seasons before we bought him his attitude as a youngster was what stopped him moving to a massive club (e.g. Real Madird) every1 knows he is a class player just lacked the temper which seems to have improved

twitter (not reliable admittedly) has been reporting that Alan Smith has officially been let go on a free? Anyone confirm that? cheers...come on leeds get him back lol

Believable3 Unbelievable13

He's in America with the first team squad so untrue.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well tbh they've said for ages that smith is available on a free, entirely different to being released of course....I know he's in America but weird how twitter has come up with this. Probably become clearer when he's back from the tour sometime next week?

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a chance in a million years would anyone in their right mind agree to part company with any club when they have time remaining on a 60k a week + contract, don't be daft.
He is free to move to any club who want him, but until then he will stay on the books at Newcastle playing in the reserves.

Agree0 Disagree0

You say "weird Twitter has come up with this" as though Twitter was some clever piece of software with transfer speculation analysis built in. Twitter posts are placed by similar numpties who post unreliable rubbish on this site. As Smithy is booting balls round the US of A with the rest of the lads it is clearly nonsense.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not true he's on the American tour

Agree0 Disagree0

I know he's on the us tour seen the pics so why would they bother saying this, just strange...
