Ed do you know if we are interested In Bordeauxs Yoan Gouffran at all? {Ed002's Note - Things are difficult with Bordeaux wanting to sell Gouffran in January but the player wanting to hang on to the summer after looking at possible opportunities in January - when he can sign a pre-contract with a non-French side. I would doubt Newcastle is an option right now.}

Ok thanks Ed.
Another thing, Have you heard anything about the Braga striker Eder? Or are these rumours just being brought back up as we've been linked with him in the past? {Ed002's Note - Eder only moved to Braga in the summer - so a move seems unlikely to me.}

Good point, dont even think of that, cheers Ed.

Just saw that Xisco scored a hat-trick against Stoke, i think he deserves a call up for the squad against brugge. I think he's one of those late developers. You never know, he could be our 4th striker!

I was thinking about xisco's situation this week. He has always been very positive in the interviews ive read and never complained about his position at the club, something which other players in similar scenarios seem to do regularly.

Before I'm berated let's make clear this is a question not a statement. Given the fact that Nile Ranger was purportedly given 18 first team appearances in Alan Pardews first season as manager, has Xisco been given an equally fair opportunity to impress?

I'm not saying that he has or hasn't, and obviously Alan Pardew must see him train and get reports about him from various coaches to warrant not using him in the squad at all.


Agree3 Disagree1

Would you complain about being on 55 grand a week though. Not an option for 4th striker, as soon as his contracts up the better.

I have been watching the progress of Fraser Forster since he left Newcastle and i now believe we have dropped a major clanger letting the boy leave!!

From what i have seen and heard about him he has been outstanding for Celtic!

Now i know in the SPL he wont be tested on a regular basis but i have watched Celtics 3 games in the Champons league and he has been terrific in all of them! He was certainly tested last night and handled everything a certain Lionel Messi could throw at him!(No chance with the 2 goals)

Anyway, i wish the lad all the best!

It was either him or krul, he wasn't going to settle as a second keeper where as elliot and harper are
