Just been to an event hosted by steve Wraith, he's the guy close to the players, remember when carroll left Wraith showed the texts from carroll stating he didn't want to leave. Well tonight he has told us he's been tipped of that j.defo is close to a 7.5m move to nufc. This guy knows a lot of staff and players and apparantley the erdinc deal is a smoke screen as it failed 2 weeks ago from the fall out with his agent over a bonus payment that he's due from psg..

Believable16 Unbelievable16

Hope so deadly infront of goal just didn't have the best of seasons last season but wasn't helped by injuries and struggled to keep a 1st team spot but when he plays week in week out he is quality.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ba and defo with ben arfa Barton cabaye looks good to me, rather go for a striker with perm experience and he ticks all the boxes for me

Agree0 Disagree0

Bbc gossip page shows that the sun feel the same way. Makes me dout it. Althouh i would love it to be true.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes i know steve myself and he is close to members of staff, defoe would be a quality signing, erdinc a think will come in too. o you have any other info, when the transfer is went to go through be revieled etc ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Prem experience lol not perm ha ha know what you mean tho What you reckon to this rumour Ed ??

{Ed042's Note - The Sun carried the story, says a lot really.. actually a fan of Defoe, think hes lethal given service, and he is not guaranteed first team football next season, getting to the age where he will want to play every week, could be why hes linked, because hes available and it saves a sun journalist from actually leaving the office and doing his job, would be very surprised if it was true.. but would be happy if we did get him instead of Erdinc, better player}

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes I know Steve and he is a KNOB

Agree0 Disagree0

Not sure how I'd feel about signing Defoe. Not the youngest, or particularly prolific, his career scoring record is really nothing to shout about.. On the other hand he's better than what we have.

Agree0 Disagree0

A friend was in a shop yesterday (unnamed) and made a comment about a certain product,

the guy replied "yeah all the sports stars are endorsing them, just sold one to j.defoe, oops"

then a bit banter but apparently he's up here, why buy from up here for delivery to london??

said shop is very close to newcastle

Agree0 Disagree0

Wraith is full of crap. He did know Carroll and Carroll used him to falsely put over his story that he didn't want to go to LFC. Carroll is a liar, and Wraith is a gullible fool. He knows fook all about what goes on behind closed doors. As for blokes in shops on 6 an hour., do me a favour. READ MY LIPS WE WON'T BE BUYING DEFOE FOR SO SO MANY REASONS. I SAID THAT ABOUT THE ZOG AND I'M SAYING IT AGAIN ABOUT JD. StteveToon

Agree0 Disagree0

Utter bull, Defoe will want more than 40k a week

Agree0 Disagree0

I am a fan of defoe he turns 29 in jan. i thought we were going for the young age. but id take him, he still has alot to prove and he has got great pace, which could help us out. i would like to see edric come in any way, ba defoe and edric, will be compation for every1

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with 'angry' stevetoon, we've got more chance of signing Jermaine Jackson....

Agree0 Disagree0

I do agree that the story about the guy in the shop is a little far fetched, (he's more than 6 an hour it think lol, its his business)

but why would he make it up you know? i dont think he will sign, and never did as it doesnt fit within ashley's "policies" but they guy wouldnt just pull it out of fresh air.

just sayin

Agree0 Disagree0

I think people on ere will stop posting things they have heard before long cos of the few morons who still continue to have a go ast anything anyone says

Agree0 Disagree0

If all people are posting is 2nd rate paper talk then they shouldn't bother. We all read the papers and the transfer websites. This forum should be for those rare occasions when someone hears something from a reliable source. Banter, desires and wishlists should be on the banter site. The tidal wave of false rumours and paper talk on this site devalues any real rumours which are posted. SteveToon

Agree0 Disagree0

Steve Wraith the players friend, load of old crap, Carrol devo wanted to leave as he is a gready %$*&%. Same as Nolan.Defoe has ruled out the toon within the last hour

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 21:33:50
Not sure what to make of this supposed deal for erdinc. Im sure we were saying it was a done deal last month. Anywho if we dont get him i think we should make a serious double swoop on Chelski for Sturridge and P.Aanholt. Prefferbly buy em or loan with first dibs.

Believable16 Unbelievable5

Dibs. what are u 12?

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes, why?

Agree0 Disagree0

Must be 12 as he doesnt quite know the difference between who and how quite yet haha... BANTER

Agree0 Disagree0

What, were you older than 12 when you learned the difference between "who" and "how" like?

Agree0 Disagree0

No people, he mean 'anywho'. it's when you purposely spell something incorrectly to accentuate the pronunciation, pour example- 'am gannin oot' or 'hew man ya div'........ it's called the 'phonetic spelling'
Just keeping the site educational

i just saw erdnic play for psg against roma on tv. they are playing a triangular tournament in austria.

It musn't be close. It's always talk talk and talk

Believable7 Unbelievable2

Did he score?

Agree0 Disagree0

To be fair Enrique is in America and he's on the verge of leaving toon, so probably shouldn't look too much into Erdinc playing for Paris. Plus PSG have recently bought new players that probably havn't joined the squad yet. Still think he'll be our next signing....... I once thought I got 5 and the bonus and that turned out to be wrong an all like.....

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 20:50:26
Erdin has signed pre contract agreement at Newcastle United. Deal will go through after 1st August when he receives his bonus from PSG.

Believable8 Unbelievable11

Not likely - pre-contracts are only needed if the player isn't able to sign a proper contract i.e. in the last few months of a contract before being available on a free. If you're going to make it up, at least research the legalities. Dom.

Agree0 Disagree0

So what your saying is, on moday the 1st august 2011 on news, website, bbc sport website, nufc blog, newcastle united offical website, PSG website and any other sport site will have the news that edric has joined newcastke for 7.5m, or has even agreed to join. some how i dout that very much

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 19:46:37
9M for crouch, I would rather we spent some of that toward signing Long. He's younger and has room to grow, Crouch is the finished product and not likely to get any better. Plus Longs goal scoring record isn't half bad, not proven it the top league i know. But looks promising.

Believable13 Unbelievable6

You say Long is young and "has room to grow" but come on, he'll never grow as tall as crouch

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 19:20:36
Just pulling a few names to get some people thinking. It's obvious the squad needs a bit of strengthening so opinions on these players and positions would be welcome.

Goalkeeper - I feel in this area we are fine, we could possibly loan out Forster for a season then let him and Krul battle it out for number one next season.

Right back - Seems to be a shaky area would love to see Clyne come in to give Simpson a push and a bit of competition let Perch go out on loan and hope he comes back better.

Centre back - Its a simple of case of one in one out now that we have lost Sol we should be looking around to find cover for the 3 we have possible move for Upson would be decent maybe Onouha to cover RB and CB

Left back - Its all to clear that we are going to lose Enrique, Bridge would be adequate but for the future I'd look at Van Aanholt and M'Bengue

Right Midfield - With Routledge on his way out a cheeky swap deal with Gradel could be the ticket as Gradel is young and loves to take people on. Jeffren from Barcelona could be a steal at £5m should be looked at. In terms of the rest of the midfield we seem to have enough quality maybe cover for Tiote as he is certain to be suspended.

Strikers - Crouch would be a decent enough signing for about £4m however the £9m Spurs are asking for is borderline crazy. Defore would be another acquisition who could be brilliant with Ba if the price is right. Erdinc is virtually nailed on and I expect Long may arrive if we can do a deal with Reading which is beneficial for both teams however I do feel Ranger deserves a chance.

Other Considerations - Gio Dos Santos and Aquilani could be long shots but worth a punt as is Kranjcar, Bendtner and Chamakh (possible deal with Enrique??).

Would really like opinions and thoughts.

Believable18 Unbelievable5

Lets be honest there is no way we will sign the 6 players you are saying we need. and i agree we do need them but i see 3.. tops Few injurys (already guthrie, HBA, Ferguson, Col and tiote both picked up knocks in the Orlando game too) this season and we are done for.

Agree0 Disagree0

I wouldn't like to be pessimistic but I feel we need some extra players however I can only see us signing free's

Agree0 Disagree0

Sunderland supporter come in peace, I have a feeling that Enrique will have a re think, don't think there is the level of intrest in him as his agent has told him, good for you's as he is quality. What you really need is a decent striker, ba has knees made of glass, if you can get sturridge on loan your sorted.

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed mate, Ba and Sturridge would be quality but we need strength on the bench maybe Hooper for Shola, wouldn't mind the toon looking at Kayal and Izaguirre

Agree0 Disagree0

Fair enough you saying all this, but its just not going to happen is it

Agree0 Disagree0

All these players you have mentioned i have said in the past on this site i would have, good post mate

Agree0 Disagree0

It's just moves that I feel could and should be made, the only solid rumour is Wayne Bridge and I'd rather not blow 8m on a player, if it was the right price it wouldn't be too bad

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd love us to sign Kranjcar, seriously he is an excellent player and he is being completely wasted at Spurs, though if Modric does go he'll probably get more first team football. Another problem with Kranjcar is the price Harry has put on him, 12m I think it was and its putting clubs off.

All that aside, we'll never get him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Kranjcar would be a good signing play in the middle with cabaye

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 19:20:20
Any reliable outs for Newcastle? Is Smith really staying? (nutcase)

Believable0 Unbelievable10

Yes because no other club is moronic enough to pay his astronomical wages, positive side is only another 2, 880,000 or so left to pay him

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 19:13:45
How can we sign crouch and defoe? They will want more than our wage cap allows, they won't have any resale value and are already proven Won't happen sorry lads

Believable11 Unbelievable1

We wont, loan maybe.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 20:04:56
Jose will not leave in the immediate future, no bids made and little solid interest. Erdic will be announced Monday after squad returns. Nothing in it regarding the two spurs lads - The source

Believable8 Unbelievable2

Another news e.g. other Strikers like Long and another unknown targets?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 20:04:27
newcastle to sign dimitar berbartov for 8.5 million and patrick van ahnholt for 2.5 with enrique going to arsenal for 8 million

Believable3 Unbelievable9

This is a noncense. Berbatov came in Man United for 30 miliion pounds and then they will sell him for 8.5 milions? I don't think so.
Van Aanholt? Excellent talent, who has to leave Chelsea if he really want to save his career. For 2.5 milions bring him to Newcastle. He would be right solution for LB.

Agree0 Disagree0

Have a day off d-bag

Agree0 Disagree0

What, you think Man United could expect to sell Berba for 30m still? Laughable. Not even 20m. You realise he is in his 30's now?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 18:12:41
Id be happy with crouch, but if he's bought for 9M then I won't. Ashley could easily put another 6M Into the 9M prepared(if) and get a younger, better Sturridge

Believable5 Unbelievable5

26 Jul 2011 17:59:29
Newcastle United will announce the signing of one of the biggest names in English football on Friday.
The hush-hush deal will have our fans delighted and really push home the Toon's ambitions.
The Mackem's will be outraged at our new signing especially as I say the new player is one of the biggest names in the Premiership.

Believable5 Unbelievable30

Who then this is utter crap probs some mackem trying to get a response from a geordie then some 12 yr old kid will get all excited n you will call us deluded

Agree0 Disagree0

Is this a mackem on the windup? sounds like a sarcastic rumour

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha ha..... heard it all before

Agree0 Disagree0

Who is it.. Bilyaletdinov

Agree0 Disagree0

What team does he play for?

Agree0 Disagree0

I'll get excited about this when it actually happens.

"Big signing going to happen on Friday".....heard it too many times before.

Agree0 Disagree0

That's what I like to hear, a brilliantly vague rumour, that tells us nothing. Just a thought, who is the the player with the longest (biggest - are you with me) name in the premier league?

Agree0 Disagree0

OOOOHHHH another massive announcement on a Friday. Will it be as big as the last one which was lauded on this site. How exciting. Except, like the last "friday massive announcement" it's just another piece of nonsense from a person with nothing new to say. SteveToon

Agree0 Disagree0

Load of s**t and if its not then do tell us who

Agree0 Disagree0

And who might be that player ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Would love this to be true but cant see it happening

Agree0 Disagree0

Its Stefan Maierhofer It has to be OMG I'M SO EXCITED Right from under the Mackems noses

Agree0 Disagree0

Why do you all even reply to this sort of post?

Agree0 Disagree0

If this is true surely u can tell who he plays for or where he play hmm

Agree0 Disagree0

I, m a mag mate but think you, ve smoked too many mind bending d**** today

Agree0 Disagree0

Massive Player, One Of English Footballs Best Talents..............MUST BE GETTING BRAMBLE BACK HA.

Agree0 Disagree0

There will 2 signings until now and end of transfer .. it would be striker in the age bracket below 26, but proven and in the price tag of 10 to 15 m .. and a left back .. these are 2 most important positions were we are vulnerable now..anything more if we sign is a bonus like right winger...we need a out and out right winger.. stop posting crap load saying the deal will struck on Friday and so on ..We are always on top of makems ..loosers will be loosers (5-1)

Agree0 Disagree0

................plays for one of the "blue chip" clubs in the Premiership and is a forward.Negotiations are ongoing with his agent and he things are on track for a Friday announcement.

Agree0 Disagree0

..........ALLWAYS ON TOP OF THE MACKEMS THERE'S A LAUGH.SO WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN FOR THE LAST THREE YEARS THEN?

Agree0 Disagree0

It's Thursday and things are still on track for the announcement tomorrow.By the time the paperwork is done it will probably be late afternoon or early evening when it is announced officially.The club want all the media passes sorted out before lift-off tomorrow night.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 17:55:04
toon to sign Defoe for 6mil by the end of next week

Believable5 Unbelievable12

Bilge. He's too old, too expensive, on too high wages and as a born and bred suvverner he wouldn't come this far Norfff at his age. SteveToon

Agree0 Disagree0

And who told you Harry would be ready to get rid of Defoe ?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 17:53:59
Defo and his agent are in talks with Newcastle united in a £7.5 million switch crouch did get looked at but no more interest than that I am not an Newcastle supporter but I think this would be a excellent signing as he is a proven goal scorer in the premier league for you guys good look for the season every one wants to see you guys bk up there with us top 5 clubs in europe

Believable8 Unbelievable8

Ha ha ha. "Us top 5 clubs". Who else would say "top 5". Clearly a Spuds fan hoping his club are getting rid of their failures. Defoe was abysmal for Spuds last season. NUFC would have him on a free loan for a season but that's about it. SteveToon

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 17:40:40
Newcastle to sign defoe and crouch by weekend for £15 million, a club source says we cant let the mighty macums finish above us again this coming season

Believable2 Unbelievable16

Spurs dont want crouch or defoe so why do we

Mighty makems you must one deluded makem smb

£8 million for WAYNE BRIDGE £8 MILLION What the fek Why? Someone please explain to me why should we buy a old Chelsea and man city reject?

Believable2 Unbelievable16

The truth is that this rumour is bulls**t. if ashely aint gonna buy a striker for 8m why the f**k would he buy wayne bridge

Agree0 Disagree0

Ne way on this earth would we pay 8 million for bridge i think 3 to 4 would buy as he was on loan last season

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 15:57:47
tom cleverley season long loan, we dont need another midfielder we need a centre forward

Believable3 Unbelievable15

What's the source of this rumour? Or did you just make it up?

Agree0 Disagree0

Strange how SAF already said cleverly going nowhere this season..

Agree0 Disagree0

If true i'd take him the amount of injuries we get... if barton gets injured then tioe gets suspended at same time we need more back up n the back up needs to be quality otherwise guthrie/smith come into play n they r championship at best

Agree0 Disagree0

It was on news now earlier I can't don't the link on my phone someone with access to a computer have a look and post the link

Agree0 Disagree0

Shola apparently off to celtic by next week

Believable3 Unbelievable25

Of course he is...

Agree0 Disagree0

No such luck

Agree0 Disagree0

Apparently not...

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope not, he is worth at least 6 points a season with his goals against the mackems

Agree0 Disagree0

Does he need a lift?

Agree0 Disagree0

Unfortunately shola will never leave, he will be there when hes cashing in his pension, which shouldnt be too far away judging by the way he runs, walks, shoots, moves in general

Agree0 Disagree0

Of course he wouldnt. why would the worlds best player go to celtic??

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 13:41:51
Defoe and Crouch being looked at. Chroniclelive.co.uk

Believable18 Unbelievable15

Were looked at (past tense) and quickly discounted due to cost and age. I could imagine a loan deal for Defoe at a push because that's the sort of striker(ish) that we're in the market for. But only if we hit a brick wall with other, younger, European targets. Dom.

Agree0 Disagree0

To be honest, Defoe and Crouch would not be a bad starting strike force. I would rather see sturridge and Rondon though, but hey, beggers can't be choosers...

Agree0 Disagree0

Defoe probably, Crouch probably not, Defoe and crouch defo not

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 11:53:52
toon apparently made an enquiry about peter crouch but 9mill price tag might put us off

Believable15 Unbelievable18

And the fact we chanted he was just a s**t Andy Carroll might put him off... ?

Agree0 Disagree0

We will never buy crouch he's 30, expensive and really s**t

Agree0 Disagree0

Crouch = hoofball, no thanks

Agree0 Disagree0

And rightly so we were put off, he isnt worth more than 5m

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought ashley is only after young players, hence barton and nolans lack of new contracts??? i can't see it to be honest, more lies to keep the fans quiet.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 11:38:00
On arsenal blog they reckon it will be Enrique for bentner straight swap or Enrique for gibbs on loan with around 10+ mill would not mind the bentner deal . Opinions?

Believable16 Unbelievable12

Personally I am not a big fan of Bentner but others may say otherwise. I think he would spit his dummy out if things didn't go his way

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd prefer the Bendtner swap as if we got a fee for Enrique it would probably just end up in the fat controllers back pocket.

Agree0 Disagree0

Gibbs has potential but hasnt played a handful of games without getting injured for about 2 years now

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Bentner would be a real asset, reminds me of Malcome Mcdonald, he would be an icon if he came to us, but will he move North...

Agree0 Disagree0

Bendtners nothing like Macdonald at all. But I do agree a swap would be better than losing the money into the "pot". Do we need someone with such a crap attitude though. Big problem getting London players North as well. SteveToon

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 09:26:52
Not only is Pardew after Bridge from City he wants Onuoha as well as he can play anywhere across the back four and even a holding role in midfield.

Believable22 Unbelievable11

I dont think either of them 2 would be a bad idea for newcastle, after all we need the defensive cover from Onuha, and Bridge has experience and is at the peak age for a left back, hopefully we'll get 10m for Jose who has spat the dummy out

Agree0 Disagree0

Wouldn't want Wayne Bridge and theres no way we could afford his wages but Onouha would be a good addition to the squad and would give Simpson some much needed competition.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah i agree with this as well not to sure about bridge but wouldn't mind him for about 3m and onouha *spelling would be a good addition even if it was season loan with option to buy

Agree0 Disagree0

Onuha id take for sure but Bridge is past it and too expensive

Agree0 Disagree0

Onuaha yes, bridge no, it's a no - brainer.

Agree0 Disagree0

Heard from one of Newcastle's coaching staff (also my cousin), We are lining up George McCartney to replace Enrique at LB Gutted.

Vagner love to Newcastle of a deal believed to be around 7 million

Believable13 Unbelievable27

Would like this to be true but unlikely

Agree0 Disagree0

Extremely unlikely this one like but I would love it to be true.

Agree0 Disagree0

More like Wagner from the X Factor within your price range....

Agree0 Disagree0

Vagner love would cost more than 7m, around 12m

Strong player but carries a lot of baggage
Can't see this one happining

West ham bid 8mill for long that's another striking option gone Whitleymag source; guardian

Believable11 Unbelievable17

What would make you think West Ham have 8mil to spend and we don't?

Agree0 Disagree0

I think its more to do with that if we get erdinc were not gona spend 8mill on another striker. And we know west ham have money nolan bought and they will sell parker and revenue from new stadium

Agree0 Disagree0

He wants Premiership football, will move, but will depend on the price.

Agree0 Disagree0

Stop dreaming, please. Wagner Love maybe was a good in past, but in present he is just a peace of s**t. Noting.

Agree0 Disagree0
