first of many

The Independent: They understand that Joe Kinnear wants to transfer Hatem Ben Arfa and will likely put him on the transfer list

Believable4 Unbelievable17

I very much doubt that, he wants a new contract and kinnear already said our stars are staying.

Agree12 Disagree3

Do you think we have bid for bony or pea?
hope so, desperate for strikers

Agree7 Disagree4

What would people think if we bought in james tomkins if williamson departs? not sure what to make of him really.

Believable4 Unbelievable4

Can not get a game at whufc so why would he be good for us?

Agree4 Disagree2

He is a decent defender but West Ham want £10 million for him. He is not worth that. I would prefer us to give Curtis Good a chance.

Agree4 Disagree1

Both donkeys

Agree5 Disagree1

I hope they release Williamson and replace him with youth. Keep two out of Streete, Good and Mbabu, whilst having the other out on loan, rotating between Coloccini, Taylor and Yanga-Mbiwa for the first team. Bring in a full back, a winger and a striker and replace anyone who leaves. That's give us a great squad for the season with only the league and two cups. I really believe the management need to have more faith in youth

Agree1 Disagree1

We don't need more fullbacks but we do need a striker and then a winger

Agree2 Disagree0

Tomkins is a good player but he was injured most of last season. Hens him not getting a game for WHUFC. Would be a good replacement for Willo but then a 10yr old is a better replacement than him. WHUFC want too much for a player with injury problems we won't buy him

Agree1 Disagree0

Why all the abuse for willo?No he's not the best centre half we've ever seen but he gives his all and never hides away. should give the lad a break.

Agree2 Disagree2

Giving your all should be a given but if Willo is a premiership player on £30k a week then so am I and I'm 52!

Agree0 Disagree1

Willo is decent enough as a depth player. Provided he's not given an extended run in the side he's alright. If he's happy to stay around and play that role then fair enough. If he wants first team, then he needs to go.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, do you reckon its true that we've put in bids for aubameyang and bony?

Believable8 Unbelievable10

A lot of people are criticising our team just after one poor season, they finished 5th in 11/12 FIFTH! And our squad is much more improved with the likes of M'Biwa (Who has bags of potential) debuchy, sissoko, haidara. Yes there are players like jonas, gosling, williamson, ameobi, obertan, perch who need moving out but other than that, our squad is a top 8 team!

Lets compare it with tottenham
Lloris > Krul
Walker > Debuchy
Kaboul < Coloccini
Vertonghen > M'Biwa
Assou ekotto < Santon
Lennon < Ben Arfa
Dembele < Cabaye
Parker > Tiote
Bale > Sissoko
Sigurdsson > Gouffran
Defoe/Adebayor < Cisse

Tottenham win by 6-5, that's pretty even considering tottenham are in europa league.

We need to stay a bit more positive now especially as there are reports of us putting in bids for bony and aubameyang and as its a new season.

Believable5 Unbelievable6

As a defender Debuchy beats Walker every time. Going forward, Walker's good but he's not that good at defending. To be honest this list is far too subjective to make any actual claims about who is better than who

Agree5 Disagree1

We have great players but Spurs have a modern, progressive continental manager with an impressive CV who manages more than one flash in the pan one off good season and a well respected D. O. F

Agree1 Disagree1

Top 8 are you kidding, you missed relegation by pure luck, last minute goals if you like, the truth is you are a top17 club, like it or not.

Agree3 Disagree3

Sigurdsson better than Gouffran?

No chance!

Sugurdsson is one of the most wasteful players I have ever seen in the Premier League.

Agree6 Disagree2

Sigurdsson had a good half a season at Swansea and that's it. He's been mediocre at Spurs

Agree2 Disagree0

Debuchy is decent going forward but a s**** defender. He's looked all over the place and gun ho. Constantly out of position and has been run ragged in every game! Plus Marveaux is better than Gouffran. Gouffran is a championship player at best!

Agree2 Disagree4

Gourffan is championship by best. Even though he did well for a top half French team and played Champions League football.
Anyway Sissoko is better than Sigburdsson you are saying Sissoko is a winger but he is better as a CAM. Also Marveaux over Gourffan

Agree1 Disagree3

Oh dear. I can't believe what i'm reading! if half of you actually paid the money I pay to go watch the lads ON THE ROAD never mind at home, then a) youd realise gouffran was actually one of our better players when he come in and b) they all need to adapt to the league.
none of the signings were poor, or average for that matter. all have improved the squad immensely, you will see next season after they've had a full pre season together! il be at city away 1st game of the season, will you??

Agree6 Disagree1

And tiote is better than Parker by a mile

Agree1 Disagree3

How can you say they have improved the squad, wher did you finish last season, is that an improved squad, they won't be any better next season either, so don't expect much.

Agree2 Disagree0

AVB knows how to use his players to their strengths. Pardew doesn't. So comparison doesn't even matter. {Ed021's Note -

Agree0 Disagree0

Debucy. Taylor. Coloccini. Mbiwa/Haidara
Santon. Cabaye. Sissoko. Guttierz

Believable1 Unbelievable2

Mbiwa will be a CB. Santon will remain at LB. HBA will be at RM. Marveaux probably won't get a game unless there's an injury. Tiote would likely start ahead of Sissoko.

Agree2 Disagree1

Tiote ahead of Sissoko?! I seriously hope not. Tiote contributed nothing positive last season, he was truly shocking.

Agree2 Disagree0

Debuchy. Taylor. Coloccini. santon
Cabaye. sissoko. valbeuna
Ben10. Cisse. Aubeyang

Believable1 Unbelievable4

Mbiwa should be picked ahead of Taylor. Chances are we won't get Aubameyang. We won't move for someone like Valbuena unless we lose Cabaye and even then we'll probably go for a younger player.

Agree1 Disagree1

BREAKING: Good sources are reporting that Newcastle have put in a bid of £13million for Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and a £12million bid for Wilfried Bony. Finally something to cheer us up, we will only get one of them though (I hope its PEA) but we don't want to get our hopes up too high. Apparently we are supposed to get either Aubameyang or Bony and Bent, which would be very good business in my eyes.

Believable5 Unbelievable9

I heard Bony was 12m on talk sport. Not heard anything else.


Agree1 Disagree1

Is your good source talksport by any chance? I ve just read that myself. Hope its true but can't see us getting both of them.

Agree1 Disagree1

You've been on news now aswell then lol

Agree1 Disagree1

We won't get both PEA and Bony. Chances are, if this is true, we'll get one of them, (preferably and most likely Bony) and Bent if it's true we're interested in him.

Agree0 Disagree1

Wahey, about time.

Agree1 Disagree1

This was on nufc blog

Agree0 Disagree1

Please no Bent!

Agree1 Disagree0

Talksports info is the worst on the net

Agree2 Disagree0

24 Jun 2013 13:44:21
I predict:

James Tomkins - 5m
Tom Ince - 8m
Darren Bent - 6m
Maybe Loic Remy - 8m

Williamson - 2m
Jonas - 2m
Obertan - 2m
Gosling - 1m
Shola Ameobi - 1m

I defo want to see more of Gael Bigirimana, Sammy Ameobi and Adam Campbell, they look like very exciting prospects. I reckon Anita will be used more as cover for right back, as simpson is gone. I can see us going with a 4-4-2 against city, but not giving them too much respect like we have the past two meetings.
Maybe this lineup for city?
GK Krul
RB Debuchy
CB Taylor
CB Coloccini
LB Santon
RM Ben Arfa
CM Cabaye
CM Tiote
LM Ince
ST Remy/Bent
ST Cisse

But i'd like to see us go with a 4-1-2-1-2 narrow diamond:
GK Krul
RB Debuchy
CB Taylor
CB Coloccini
LB Santon
DM Tiote
CM Cabaye
CM Sissoko
AM Ben Arfa
ST Remy/Bent
ST Cisse {Ed021's Note -

Believable5 Unbelievable5

Cant see your notes ed21

Agree2 Disagree0

Change Remy to Aubameyang.

Agree2 Disagree2

I think we can forget about Ince, reports in papers are saying Blackpool have accepted a bid from Cardiff for him.

Agree3 Disagree1

Change Aubameyang to Bony and Taylor to Mbiwa.

Agree0 Disagree1

Why would we want remy and bent remy wanted to go to QPR and bent is not good enough anyway let's just get our act together in the board room who would want to come when that is such a mess I just wish Kinnear had not come back and is poyet coming in what a mess please get your act together

Agree0 Disagree2

You seriously think we'll spend that much? I foresee one signing and another "we just couldn't get them over the line. " and no real money spent again.

Also, Pardew will never sell Jonas, he won't even drop him when he's playing abysmally!

Agree2 Disagree0

Heard from a really good sorce in the club that when Gus has sorted out his wrangle with Brighton he will become our gaffer and has links with fellow contryman Folan, how good would Cisse and Folan be up front for the mighty Toon? Do not shoot me just what I am hearing FDM

Believable2 Unbelievable8

I was never a fan of Caleb Folan myself.

Agree5 Disagree4

Lol too funny.

Agree1 Disagree0

Forlan's over 30, would be great but won't happen anyway last time Forlan played in the PL it didn't go well for him

Agree0 Disagree0

You just made this up - tell the truth!

Agree3 Disagree0

I did not make it up not like the 5_1 fans do on there site! Diego Forlan to come after Sir Gus is appointted when Pards gets his pay out! He maybe a little old but we are interested in Bent, not the reject of the SMB's and he is old to! Forlan to the mighty Toon {Ed021's Note -

Agree0 Disagree1

Yes you did. Forlan's nearly as old as me.

Agree0 Disagree0
