Ed do you know if we are interested in Adam Johnson at all or if he is a possability?
Surely he will want to leave city for more game time, plus isnt he a toon fan? {Ed001's Note - he signed a new contract mid season, so I can't see him going anywhere unless he is replaced.}

Believable2 Unbelievable5

Adam Johnson is a mackem fan. he hates the toon

Agree0 Disagree4

His family are mackems but he supports Toon his idol growing up was Ginola .

Agree2 Disagree0

Believable10 Unbelievable1

I thought he was still locked up in Jesmond Dene Hotel waiting to sign for us since last summer?

In all seriousness I'd take him definitely.

The NUFC Blog is repoting that Newcastle are in pole position to sign Mathieu Debuchy Mapou Yanga Mbiwa and Luke James ed can u confirm these

Believable6 Unbelievable1

M'Biwa and Coloccini as a CB pair would rival City's (unless they got Thiago Silva).

Agree11 Disagree1

Hope so, M'Biwa looks the best centre back option to me from all the names ive seen us linked with. And he is only 23, would love to see it come off.

Agree8 Disagree0

So we've signed Amalfitano... does this mean that Adam Johnson will no longer be coming? TOONKARLOS

Believable4 Unbelievable3

Johnson is a winger and Amilfitano is an attacking midfielder so I wouldn't think so. However I haven't seen us linked with Johnson anywhere which is a shame as I would love to see him wearing a Toon shirt. Would fit perfectly into the left side of the front 3 if Ba goes.

Agree5 Disagree0

He's a attacking midfielder not a winger.

Agree2 Disagree1

Who said adam johnson was coming ?????????

Agree3 Disagree0

I wish A Johnson was coming to the toon....

Agree1 Disagree1

All this adam johnson talk is just people wishing, has no source at all.
I imagine johnsons wages will be pretty high, and i hear he had a bad attitude

Agree3 Disagree1

Has a bad attitude

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont know why people would even wont this guy. Yeah he is good on his day but has far to many off days and overall is a very lazy player. Whats the point making 10 steps forward, Signing talent that can spark a match only to take 5 steps backward to go after a typical old school signing. I like the fact that most payers we have signed over the last 2 years have litrally come out of the blue and so far most if not all have hit the ground running other than OBERTAN LOL

Agree1 Disagree0

according to the BBC (notice the according) we are refusing to negotiate Ba's contract to remove the 'release clause' please tell me this is b****cks!

Believable1 Unbelievable7

Demba ba is refusing to take release clause out!! Sell him hes crap in formation we play when hes not in the central role and u cant move cisse in ny opinion

Agree3 Disagree9

Good, the man has had half a good season, to bump up further on an already 50.000 wage would be poor business by us. If he goes, we'll replace with equally good or better.

Agree3 Disagree5

Ba had a horrendous end to the season, not only with his lack of goals, but some of his shooting reminded me of Obafemi Martins from 30 yards and some of his passing reminded me of joey Barton when the blood was entrenched in his head. He hasn't looked happy, and I for one think he was more of a liability over the last couple of months than a help.

I'm not too fussed that we are not 'bending over'. I say instill the mentality that nobody is a certainty on the team sheet. If he wants to go, he will go.

Agree4 Disagree7

Demba was brilliant in the first half of the season but if he'snot happy let him go and bring in de jong on Ba's wages.

Agree4 Disagree4

Cannot believe some of these comments on here. Ba crap? He was stuck out on the wing when Cisse came and still put the effort in without the rewards and never once moaned about it. He is quality and a good team player. We call ourselves the best fans in the world and we support our players. Ba himself said he couldn't wait for the new season, he might re-think reading some of these fickle comments. Hang your heads in shame.

Agree12 Disagree1

Yah, its not like Ba have been looking for a way out is it? It was someone else who leaked his contract situation to the press. And being played out of position or not, fact is that these people are right, he didnt play well and he did seem moody and sulky. So dont make him a saint for his ½ good season, the club comes before any one player so take your rant so where the sun dont shine.

Agree0 Disagree3

Rant? Club comes first? Make him a saint? At what point has Ba said he wants to be away? His release clause still even after Redknapp exposed to the press is unclear, most likely leaked by his agent for him/her to benefit from a move away. I wonder if you feel the same about CISSE if he has a poor start to the season. Form is temporary class is permanent.

Agree4 Disagree1

Thought it was karen brady who had told rednapp..? even so ba has done well and allthough he aint scored last 12 games or so he made plenty of assists replace ba we would need to soend a few quid possible 10 million and then hope they adapt tp premiership straight away which to find a striker than can score 15 to 20 goals a season aint easy at all...edd whats your opinion..?

Agree3 Disagree0

Spot on mate ,it was Karen Brady she discussed it in an interview said he had the same clause when with them. Harry just picked up on it and when press asked him about Ba he mentioned the Clause.

Agree0 Disagree0
