Ed have you heard any interest from Newcastle in any full backs? If Santon goes because of AC Milan, I'd expect Haidara to become first choice, but was just wondering if anyone else was being considered. Simpson is going too {Ed002's Note - I don't recall any.}


Debuchy and Haidara as first choice full backs would suit me.

If we got 10+ million for Santon then we could use some of that for another Striker that we need.

With Ryan Taylor getting back to fitness we have cover, Also it is about time Tavernier stepped up, so that for me leaves a gap for Santon to go if we get a big offer.

Tav is a terrible player and will never be EPL standard. His defensive reading of the game is very poor.

We really don't need to sell santon. We are in great financial position, and we are not a selling club anymore. Simpson and tiote and coloccini will probably be the only senior players we will sell. Hopefully Gosling, Abeid, amalfitano, Obertan, Williamson, harper will all be gone by September.

Being in a financial position that we do not have to sell Santon does not mean we should not cash in on him.

We only have one out and out recognized striker, but yet right now, we have about 6 players that can play fullback.

We may have 6 who can play full back but they are not all as good as Santon

Abeid and Amalfitiano have talent mate!

Why anybody thinks it would be good to sell Santon is beyond me!

He's a young guy still, developing very well, future toon captain I think.

He might make some mistakes, but so what, he's human, but he works hard all the time, and he has passion and enthusiasm. Remember how dodgy Colo was his first year and a half, and he just got better and better!


I rate Santon very highly, but the thing is Haidara really looks the part.

If Santon is worth a lot of money, my thinking is that we should sell him at top price if it looks like he is going to lose his place to Haidara.

If Santon becomes 2nd choice he would probably end up forcing a move anyway, and going for a lot cheaper.

Carroll will be back in july!

God I hope not

Santon should be pushed on to the wings, he looked the part against Wigan and once the full defensive responsibilities are taken off he could be a world class winger.

Any talk of selling him is madness, unless it is for over 15 mil, then as the fonze would say Heeeeeeyyyyy.
