Barton refusing to sign for QPR Said thanks but no thanks On his way back up north Peter Ramage is my mate( on loan at palace) just been the phone to let me know

Believable14 Unbelievable10

If this is true, he's given up financial security for the next 3 to 4yrs and shows how much he wants to stay.

Agree0 Disagree0

Rubbish at 3.3M a year dont make me laugh talking aboutgiving up financial security.

Agree0 Disagree0

So you're telling me if you could earn 60k a week for 10 months, or 50-60k a week for 4 years guarenteed, you would turn down the latter, don't talk wet son, he'l be off

Agree0 Disagree0

That wud actually be hilarious, 'cheers for the medical, turns out I'm fit afterall, ta' haha aye but seriously, think common sense will prevail and he'll sign for them

Agree0 Disagree0

Financial security? That makes no sense whatsoever, he dosnt really have anything to lose as he will have a big role to play for NUFC should he stay. And then when his contract is up, there will be plenty of bidders, perhaps even one or two big ones if he had another great season... At the end of the day, JB will do whats best for JB tho

Agree0 Disagree0

I personally wont begrudge him if he does leave hes got a baby on the way what he needs is a stable contract but if he does go to QPR then hes kinda likely to shine and move again next season he is a top 5 to 8 team player

Agree0 Disagree0

Just got of the phone to my dad, he is neil warnock, he said barton wont be signing, and that peter ramage dont have any friends

Agree0 Disagree0

Finacial security my a**, JB is already a multi-millionaire who never needs to work again thanks to the NUFC cointract he signed 4 years ago, have no sympathy for this 'security' b********

Agree0 Disagree0

The fact remains if he stays and gets injured he's only paid until his contract is up. What if its a career threatening /ending injury ,what then , hes taking a big gamble if he stays with toon .

Agree0 Disagree0

1 million signing on fee higher wages club looking to make more signings and showing potential he will be on his way

Agree0 Disagree0

psv agree £6 mill for pieters the news we have all been waiting on he will sign before the fulham game lowck mag

Believable14 Unbelievable5

Source ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Need a forward.. Is it me but is Ba just a slow ameobi.... Is that possible

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't tell the difference either mate Give Sammy Ameobi a chance second half

Agree0 Disagree0

Slower than shola

Agree0 Disagree0

No He is a poor man's Marlon harewood

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes, unfortunately it is possible, cos Ba proves it

Agree0 Disagree0

Slower m8

Agree0 Disagree0

Worst game. completely wrong tactics. and the most painful part is league one side is playing like Barcelona and we are playing like bolton.

Agree0 Disagree0

Totally agree with all the above comments, we are being outplayed by a league1 side. as for ba it looks like west ham have ripped us off, bring back shola all is forgiven. on a brighter note marveux looks decent, wish i could say the same for gosling, his passing has been appauling

Agree0 Disagree0

Marveux got better as the game went on. his passing early on..jesus was over hitting everything. Ba, what a waste of space. Gosling needs time. Sammy looked like our only threat. I forgot about Best.. so far from his surnames meaning its untrue. Sell him asap, before anymore games show up how rubbish he really is

Agree0 Disagree0

Who said Sammy

Agree0 Disagree0

You have got to remember that he is just getting his fitness back and is getting used to the british game

Agree0 Disagree0

Best won everything that was hit up to him and caused problems all game long.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ba is fasting for ramadan, therefore one can assume he is lacking the energy to perform at the highest level. we should start to see a different Ba after the international break.

Agree0 Disagree0

Reports coming in that we've lodged a 10 million pound bid for Davide Santon. Hard to believe but would seem we're serious about getting him.

Believable7 Unbelievable11

Really....Source?

Agree0 Disagree0

Reports coming in from where?

Agree0 Disagree0

There us somthing about it on NUFC blog .com I dont believe it i think it's smoke screen so psv drop asking prcie

Agree0 Disagree0

Ladbrokes the main source can't see it happening though

Agree0 Disagree0

Think its more likely MA is taking a flyer or using it as a negotiating tactic with first choice FB. Don't mind as long as we bring one in.

Agree0 Disagree0

Pieters will be the signing, this was a shot accross the PSV bows to get them to agree the fee etc..

Agree0 Disagree0

Ashley will have a heart attack if he spent 10m on one player, 6m possibly for someone yes

Agree0 Disagree0

Believable3 Unbelievable21

SAGEORDIE OUT

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

Whats he do at the gunners?
I bet he eats the grass........

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes but your mates dads mothers cousins brothers sister in laws roommate from school was in the special needs class so is not very reliable, I know cos I used to tend to her special needs behind the bike shed.

Agree0 Disagree0

I have heard the same thing i hope so.he can hold the ball up thats what we need

Agree0 Disagree0

No were not.. Barton is going to real and we are getting ronaldo and 25mil

Agree0 Disagree0

My gold fish has just swam round the tank anti clockwise, The last time he done this we signed a player

Agree0 Disagree0

Ok then stevetoon wannabe, your just as reliable as him, iv heard a swap deal with shola and drogba, hes being pushed out of chelsea................. reject

Simpson has denied any rumours that he is moving and declared he wants to stay at NUFC.

Joey barton is looking for fresh talks with the NUFC hierachy before he decides on his future as he has a desire to stay at the club.

Also pieters agent is confident that the deal to bring him to NUFC will be done in next 2-3 days.....JKM,Spenny

Believable18 Unbelievable4

Getting your hopes up for nothing. Barton is going doesn't matter how much you try and kid yourslef

Agree0 Disagree0

The thing that worries me about simpson is, he still hasn't signed a contract which has been on his table for a few months now.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why does worry you, Simpson is terrible and the sooner we get a few million for him the better

Geo

Agree0 Disagree0

I totally agree - Simpson is a donkey. Can't defend, can't pass, can't cross, can't beat a player. He's actually so poor, he'd probably finish last in a Donkey Derby.

Agree0 Disagree0

You are all right but if he does go who we going to stick RB cos Cashly wont buy any one to fill the void?

Agree0 Disagree0

Aint got my hopes up Want him gone

Agree0 Disagree0

Tbh if ashley doesnt replace simpson and we play nobody at right back we'd probably still be better off. the lad doesnt even look a league1 player

Agree0 Disagree0

Mackem here lads, check bartons twitter, says he will make a decision today on QPR

Agree0 Disagree0

Danny Simpson denies rumours linking him with move
Ssn

Believable16 Unbelievable1

25 Aug 2011 14:25:36
old friend of joey barton here. just spoke to the lad and he says he has no intention of joining qpr, was talked into going down for talks by his agent but he will not sign. He wants to stay and fight for a new contract

Believable14 Unbelievable13

Everyone involved in this situation has made mistakes Ashley, Llambias, Pardew, Barton, Bartons agent(Willie Mckay).
I hope u are being genuine with this post because it would be nice to see this situation sorted. I think Barton has been poorly advised probably by his agent, but he is a key member of our team so i hope everyone finds a compromise and we get him signed to a new deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

BS why would he have a medical?

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah right, he is going QPR, money talks

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope your right mate

Agree0 Disagree0

Please tell him to leave then, we do not want him. He's a madman screwing up our club from the inside. Get him OUT

Agree0 Disagree0

From what he said to SSN it looks like he doesn't want to leave, but we aren't offering him a contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

He needs to do what is best for him. He wants to stay, but if someone will offer him the security of a longer contract then he may choose to take a step down career wise. If he has enough money, then he may as well stay.

Agree0 Disagree0

Screwing the club from the inside out ,,,, give me a break what Tabloid did you get that Gem from.... he is our midfield general and i hope to god he stays.. twitter aside (and really has he said anything remotely untrue) all the younger players cannot say anything bad about the bloke and tell the press that he always helps them out.. so ease up with your vast understanding of what damage he is doing to our club, there is a cancer in our club but i believe it resides in our boardroom,

SAGEORDIE OUT

Agree0 Disagree0

Its a big old gamble by Joey if it doesn't work though. I don't think this has anything to do with the money at QPR. He just wants length in his contract. I hope he stays. I also hope he is given 3-4 years room

Agree0 Disagree0

Think the comments our out of order about tell him to leave He is a top class player who wants to play for our club. He was one of the most consistent english players in the country last year if not the most consistent in his position. True newcastle fans know who he is, what he has done and where he wants to be. Sometimes it is out of your hands. If Joey signs for QPR we all know he that this could have been prevented from MA. All this because of TWITTER, seems like a good old MA excuse to get him off the wage bill. I for one would be gutted if he left. He has been loyal to us as fans regardless what he has done in his personal life in the past.

Agree0 Disagree0

Joey Barton is playing a busted flush.Warnock has seen his hand and offerred much less.Hence the kiss and make up with MA is underway

Agree0 Disagree0

I really hope he stays.
Easily the most consistent english midfield player for me last year.Wouldn't blame him if he left either.Its obvious he wont be getting a new contract from fat boy anytime soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

Qpr offered him 20k a week plus bonuses for appearances for 4 years, also offered 100k bonus for the higher qpr finish in the table if they stay up-100k if the finish 17th, 200k if they finish 16th etc. his old friend speaking again here

Agree0 Disagree0

Joey got into trouble cos he tweeted that he did not want to get into another relegation battle, if thats the case why go to QPR.

Agree0 Disagree0

Your an OLD friend and he thought he'd call you up to to tell you what he's doing in confidence and you come and splash it on here...?
so he is gonna be on 20k per/week...
Why is 80k a week being reported?
Anyone can see he is doing this to try and manufacture a new contract from us.
QPR wouldnt be a step backwards with their new chairman by the way.
Dont see how Barton has had his 'hands tied' either. He is in a better situation now, (being in the first team playing) Rather than a couple of weeks ago (being forced to train alone). Then he was tweeting PRIDE & HONOUR & i'm not going anywhere... Doesnt add up

Agree0 Disagree0

There is no way qpr will pay him 80k a week

Agree0 Disagree0

If he wants new contract with Newcastle, then he must shut the f*** up and play...

Agree0 Disagree0

Why is there no way QPR will pay 80k p/w?
Their new chairman is giving the season ticket holders down there money back. To make it cheaper for real fans to go. Doubt their current wage bill will be radge either.
New chairman, with big plans & willing to splash the cash. Do you know anything about other clubs situation's...?

Agree0 Disagree0

OMG barton had 1 good season with us and no whes the next bloody messi, it really frustrates me that yes he did a an exceptional season with us but before that can you name a game where he played well, all he done was get sent off, cause disruption in the team until nolan came along, and how was he loyal to the fans, when he was in prison he done nothing except pick up wages what he shouldnt have, he don eabsolutely nothing until last season and suddenly hes our saviour, the man is a thug and shouldnt be in football, btw im not an ashley fan far from it but this should have been done earilier, I.E sack him when he was in prison i wish you would all open your eyes and see what he has really done to our club.

Check his twitter now, my best mate is lionel messi, we go way back get real man

Ed what have u heard on the transfer front?
Ive heard we are looking to complete deals for Pieters, Roux and Situ?

{Ed042's Note - Have it in a nutshell lad.. also negotiations with Inter over Santon and less so Lyon with Cissokho}

Believable8 Unbelievable3

Cheers Ed.
Ive heard we arent interested in Santon but there seems to be reports saying otherwise.
Wouldnt he cost around 10 million euros? No way we'd spend that on a right back.

{Ed042's Note - Dont think it would be quite that, more around the 7 to 8 mark because he is surplus to requirements, were going to use him as exchange plus cash with other Italian club for a player they wanted but fell through so dont think he is has a future at Inter, lowers his value}

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought he was very highly rated? Been impressed whenever ive seen him. Surprised they'd want to let him go permanently.
Id just be very surprised if we'd spend that much on a right back when its not a priority, or is this one of Santon/Pieters/Cissokho for left back rather than Pieters/Cissokho for left back and Santon for right back?

Agree0 Disagree0

ED i got a sneaky feeling Santon is aswell as pieters as he can cover at LB or RB and Pieters can play CB or LB which means if pietrs is needed in the centre Santon can play LB and simmo RB but if we got either of Santon or Pieters + Roux i will be a happy Chappy
:Pedro:

{Ed042's Note - Would myself mate, be chuffed with our summer business if we secured one of them for LB and Roux for up front}

Agree0 Disagree0

Explain how all these people on here get all this info but SSN no sweet FA? I get a feeling someone is telling porkies

Ed, how come you are so much ITK with transfers, is this not just a rumour site?

{Dont claim to be massively ITK mate, get decent info through a lot of digging and some good contacts, site editors and others, and definitely avoid journos ha}

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2011 12:57:53
hi ed any truth behind the rumours about davide santon?

{Ed042's Note - There is, hard to tell whether its in addition to Pieters ro Cissoko or its just one of three options, but nufc are in contact with Inter}

Believable8 Unbelievable0

Santon is real quality, I live in milan and have seen him play many times.. would be an amazing signing

Agree0 Disagree0

Would i be right in thinking it would just be a loan or have we bid for him?

Agree0 Disagree0

Agent hopeful of Pieters move
Defender Erik Pieters will leave PSV Eindhoven for Newcastle United in the coming days, according to his agent.

Dannitoon

Believable10 Unbelievable2

25 Aug 2011 11:35:13
Hearing we are now in advanced talks with both Inter and PSV for Davide Santon and Erik Pieters respectively. AP wants the 2 fullbacks. Maybe this is why the rumours of Simpson going to QPR are gathering pace
Stevie

Believable12 Unbelievable4

Dreaming...never going to happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope so both fantastic footballers. Santon I believe is out of price range though

Agree0 Disagree0

The rumours are gathering pace precisely because dithering Derek and vampire Mike will sell any of the players

Agree0 Disagree0

This would def be a massive step forward if it happens. that a big IF thou. Simpson wud easily be replaced in my view

Agree0 Disagree0

Bye bye Simpson Hopefully theres loads of nandos in London.lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Pardew can want all he wants dosent mean Ashley is going to part with any cash although we do have 45million + from transfers alone

Agree0 Disagree0

There is news on SSN that Erik Pieters agent claims that the deal will be done within the next couple of days

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope this is true and we sell simpson cause he is utter crap

Agree0 Disagree0

Anyone elso see the strong possibility we sign santon and pieters and it paves the way for Colo to leave on deadline day with all the santon cash recouped as santon can play LB and Pieters CB we will have outlayed 6 mil and have a younger defence on long contracts with lower wages and high resale value
Just saying that is Ashleys Blueprint in a Nutshell wt u reckon ED?

{Ed042's Note - Not beyond the realms of possibility mate. Give Ashley a good money offer to sell a 29 year old on 90K a week and he`ll take it.. think Colo & Gutierrez will be sold next summer regardless tbh, it fits the long term plan}

Agree0 Disagree0

We will sign pieters and santon. pieters will be playing center back if needed but most of time left back. santon will be for the reserves and create competition for pieters. pieters will sign for 5m with add onns of 1.5m and santon will be 3m with 20% sell on clause.

Agree0 Disagree0

How do you know all these money deals,I have read listened and never been off the computer and I havent heard nowt like that.

Agree0 Disagree0

3 mil for santon?? ur dreamin mate wat planet u livin on? and y would santon leave to play in are reserves hed push simmo straight out the squad

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2011 10:46:01
Looks like the Santon rumours are picking up pace with the Mirror reporting that Newcastle have lodged a bid and Inter are ready to negotiate with us. Would be a fantastic signing as comfortable in both FB positions and will only get better.
Geordiesteve

Believable11 Unbelievable5

Sounds like another pistone to me

Agree0 Disagree0

Nah, watched him play a couple of times in CL a few years back and he looked the real deal - went out on loan to Cesena last year (as still only 19/20) and got rave reviews. Only not in Inter team due to Maicon and Chivu, which is no great shame to be honest.
Geordiesteve

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope its true, need some good news on the transfer front finally..

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be our signing of the summer if we were to pull it off. I can't see us even having bid for him though, seems way out of our league.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well lets hope

Agree0 Disagree0

Really hope this true.
If we had a decent right back Simpson wouldn't get a game.I would sell Simpson to qpr no problem.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah simpson has never really stepped up to the plate as it were. If we can pull of this signing it would be class...

Agree0 Disagree0

If we sign santon, raylor and perch will be out the door.

Agree0 Disagree0

Inter milan are offering us muntari maybe a replacement for Barton, views?

Believable12 Unbelievable11

Why cant we be offered a fwd.....

SAGEORDIE OUT

Agree0 Disagree0

He's poor

Agree0 Disagree0

Id take tim

Agree0 Disagree0

He was rubbishe at sunderland

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope not he's rubbishe, prove how rubbish he was at the scum last season

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a player we need at all in no way, shape or form any kind of a replacement for Barton. Different position, different type of player. And he is gash

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont need to replace Barton we already have.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im a sunderland fan, he would be a poor signing for you, he did nothing for us

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2011 08:36:00
nufc have dropped interest in magia and are interested in nolanroux from brest whos available for around 8m euros. (WelshToon)

Believable9 Unbelievable0

This would be a great signing from what i have seen of the lad IMHO hes better than gameiro in his all around play very much hope it come through

Agree0 Disagree0

He would be a good signing i think if we could get him hes been on Lpool radar for a while hasnt he?

SAGEORDIE OUT

Agree0 Disagree0

Im pretty sure he has a 5.5m release clause in his contract, music to the fat mans ears that.

Agree0 Disagree0

^ ^ ^
fatty will be rockin a semi at that news

Agree0 Disagree0

I think its 7 million ... heard he's been offered to NUFC but we're looking elsewhere currently?

Agree0 Disagree0

Its good to hear he,s on LFC radar let them fly him in, then send HBA across in the helicopter and sign him up for us.He seems better at convincing players to sign and does speak French and probably better English than Kenny Dalglish.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wud prefer 2 hav nolanbarton lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Well done again Welshtoon you read the chronicle and told us about it thanks

Agree0 Disagree0
