I am going to say what I want to happen to Newcastle this transfer window and then what I actually think will happen

I want....
Debuchy 5 million
Remy 10 million
A solid young centre back for under 10 million
Simpson 3 million to qpr
Ba 7 million to chelski

Believable4 Unbelievable1

We don't need a young centre back, we need an experienced centre back about to reach his best. if we wanted a young CB we would dab into reserves and Williamson is still young. If anything we need to splash the cash on a V.good CB in his peak. some rumours are suggesting maybe Douglas?

Agree5 Disagree1

When is 29 still young in football cos that's how old Williamson is and this is the bloke that didn't play a game for Portsmouth in the champships and the following season we took him agree we need a cb in his peak but not likely going to happen any one in there peak will be snapped up by a club that can afford to pay them the big money and even if we do land someone at there best not be long until someone comes in and takes them from us then where in the same place again needing to find a replacement

Agree0 Disagree0

The reason he wasn't playing for Portsmouth was if he played they would of had to make a payment to his previous club and they couldn't afford to.

Agree0 Disagree0

sissoko might sign for newcastle however if he does he will be representing mali in afcon but we did sign cisse and tried to sign maiga who knows

Believable1 Unbelievable1

Wrong sissokho - ours target is a French international, not the former Liverpool and Juventus man

Agree7 Disagree0

He's a french international, can't play for 2 countries.

Agree4 Disagree0

That's the wrong Sissoko chief, do your research. We are after Moussa Sissoko, who plays for Tolouse, not the one that used to play for Liverpool.

Agree3 Disagree0

That's funny he is a full French international so there is no way he can play for Mali

Agree2 Disagree0

Lol tomfoolery, please do not google the names of players and then get the wrong one, ie Ronaldo and fat Ronaldo etc etc

if ba's release clause is only for champions league teams how much are chelsea paying cos there not in it so really we could ask what we want and would a fee not need to be agreed to speak to him {Ed002's Note - Right.}

Believable7 Unbelievable0

Can't activate release clause. Chelsea not a CL club.

Agree3 Disagree1

Job done pre Contract signed Ba is gone next week Of course Chelsea can sign him they were Champions

Agree2 Disagree4

How r they allowed to hold talks? {Ed007's Note - They aren't unless they have been given permission by the club.}

Agree1 Disagree0

If he goes, i'll be sad to see him go, you can't argue against his record during his time here. Although i'll be glad to see the end of "clausegate".
Hope we get a good replacement for him.

Agree2 Disagree0

Ed, I was also under the impression that it was only champions league clubs that could activate the clause? And ed were has debuchy played in europe this season yet? {Ed002's Note - Right, CL clubs. Debuchy is ewligible if nominated to play in the Europa.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Can only be activated my a champions league team? They were the Champions last year, they replaced tottenham as the fourth team club. So yes, they can active his release clause. {Ed002's Note - They are out of the Champions League, so they cannot.}

Agree0 Disagree0

ba not going to chelsea agents want him to.. ..but he wants to go to psg .... newcastles g carr has been monitering there squad very closely they have a number of very good players that are not getting game time and could do a very good job for nufc

Believable4 Unbelievable3

Can't activate release clause. Chelsea not a CL club.

Psg is not interested in BA, he loves them as a fan i havent read about their love for him anywhere!

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed can you explain what is supposedly happening with regard to Ba and a move to Chelsea?? {Ed002's Note - I know nothing of it. Sorry.}

Believable1 Unbelievable4

Np :)

Agree1 Disagree0

He's joining Chelsea on Thursday , they've had enough of one striker and want a partner for Torres

Agree3 Disagree4

I agree it looks like its a doneDeal but ive got to be honest i have my suspicions....for the money it will take to shift him (approx 20Mill+) they could get Falcao, Neymar or some other young lad with fresh knees and still retain a big chunk of the value?

Agree1 Disagree0

newcastle have asked about van annholt as part of any deal with ba he can be called back from his loan in holland on 31st

Believable7 Unbelievable1

As long as he wants to stay

Ba can go for me , his heads got far too big for his own boots

He needs to remember who took a chance on him , when nobody else would

Greet person

Agree5 Disagree1

Great player

Agree5 Disagree2

Van has signed not on loan

Agree2 Disagree1

He was at us for a month while we were in championship wasnt he?

Agree2 Disagree0

demba ba set to meet up with chelski representatives to discuss a move, come to think of it, it's actually quite sad coz of his time here and what he's done, as long as it means we get at least 3 signings, hopefully we can build and do an everton from last season. Hopefully ba leaving will be a blessing in disguise.

other player is from PSG and could be lugano but not sure

Believable3 Unbelievable5

If it were PSG (which I doubt) my guesses would be Sakho/Gamerio
I'd be over the moon with Sakho but then again. Probably not.

Agree6 Disagree0

Debuchy on his way

Agree10 Disagree3

If it is PSG I reckon it is Gameiro to replace Ba, rather him than Remy. I just hope it is not Erdinc, is he still at PSG?

Agree3 Disagree1

No he moved

Agree0 Disagree0

We had the chance to sign gamerio 2011 but he turned it down because he didnt think he could break through premier defences

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Dec 2012 13:14:10
Debuchy to join on Tuesday. Done deal. Finally.

I don't know why we didn't go for bassong in the summer? he's a quality defender, amazing ariel threat and only 26. Ed, are we still linked to that left back Massadio Haidara so we can switch santon right back? What are the chances? {Ed001's Note - I have not heard of any recent links with Haidara, you have been linked with Marseille talks, I expect the stories to be it is Fanni you are looking at (purely because the papers will love the name). In my opinion it is Lucas Mendes you have inquired about, though I have not been given a name, just that it is a full back. Having looked closely at the squad, I can't see another player that would fit the type of player Newcastle are looking at, though it is just an educated guess, rather than it is 100% him, so bear that in mind.}

Believable2 Unbelievable3

Bassong?? he already let us down once, We made him and he turned his back on us.

Forget that, Would take anyone over him. No player is bigger than any club.

Agree3 Disagree0

two players will be on tyneside on thursday to sign..... both play in france... NO NAMES YET.... friend does not want the sack

Believable5 Unbelievable0

Debuchy is one of them. The other will probably be Remy

Agree9 Disagree4

First player is Pepe and the second is Le Peu !

Agree4 Disagree3

Aubameyang is the other player comes from saint etienne he s 23 scored 28 in 74 starts cheaper than remy that's why we r getting him

Agree1 Disagree1

Aubameyang, Remy would be ideal, but lets be honest we really need to block up the mickey mouse defence first.

Agree5 Disagree0

Ed what are the chances of January moves to Newcastle for:
1) Debuchy
2) Mirin
3) Remy
4) Sissoko
{Ed002's Note - (1) Newcastle are still interested in Debuchy, a player that Lille accepted an offer for back in July but it never happened. The interest remains but a firm offer needs to be put to the club and player that can be accepted. (2) Perhaps, but I suspect it has some way to run. (3) Chelsea, Spurs, Newcastle, Everton and Lille have shown varying degrees of interest in Loic Remy but there have been no approaches to Marseille regarding Remy from Liverpool or from QPR who appear to be the latest club linked with the player. There was discussion with Chelsea about Remy during the negotiations over Azpilicueta but it came to nothing. Remy would perhaps be interested in a move to England but his recent form has been poor and Marseille know it will be difficult to get a good price for the player. Newcastle will very likely complete the transfer of Remy in January, although there is a slim chance that they might face opposition from Everton who made a recent approach to Marseille about his availability on loan. As far as Marseille are concerned, they have started looking for a replacement. (4) Toulouse's Moussa Sissoko has previously attracted interest from Milan, Arsenal, Lyon, Roma, Genoa, Liverpool and probably Napoli. Damien Comolli went as far as letting Sissoko's agent know that Liverpool saw Sissoko as the ideal long-term replacement for Steven Gerrard - but for some reason the club failed to make the final push to buy the player. Sissoko remains available (as he has done for two years) and Juventus, Newcastle and Spurs have enquired - with a tentative agreement being reached with Newcastle and Juventus over the price. Juve probably have the edge right now.}

Believable3 Unbelievable2

Cheers! Turns out I could've waited on Debuchy, all French media reporting that he's to sign on Tuesday. Came from a Lille based newspaper so pretty reliableI guess given that we've been tracking him for ages.
Reported to be at a cost of 5.5 million / 6 million euros.

Agree1 Disagree1

Sissoko has agreed to come to the toon in principle depends on us staying up. Won't happen till the summer as he is out of contract then deal done for debauchee 5m signs on the 1st

Agree2 Disagree2

30 Dec 2012 01:23:33
Done Deal - Ba to Arsenal - Henry and Walcott to newcastle/

Believable4 Unbelievable14

I would take that but that won't happen. especially the Henry bit because he is only going to arsenal on a short term loan

Agree4 Disagree1

Walcott!!! after that, what would he see in coming to newcastle? haha

Agree3 Disagree1

Chelsea .

Ba, Tiote and BenArfa will be sold this Jan.
DiSanto 6m, Downing10m and Coetes{Loan deal} will come in Jan...And they want Andy Carrol 17m in the summer! From a close contact who works for the club.

Believable4 Unbelievable23

When will people get the hint that we will not be going for downing?? He's crap. But then again this is mike Ashley we're on about..., , , , ,

Agree5 Disagree3

Ba probably will leave and given hoe tiote's been playing I wouldn't mind him leaving

Agree8 Disagree2

What an absolute load of rubbish.

Agree3 Disagree0

Is that jimmy Kranky..?
Coz your a comedian!

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Dec 2012 00:47:22
How can our defence be pretty good one year and the exact same players be awful the next year! Have we changed the way we coach? Or is it simply that there is no competition for places! I hope that in Jan we pick up a CB who an walk straight into the 1st team and Full back who can also play CB. If we dont do any other business and noone leaves I would be happy with that!

Micah Richards on loan would be a decent signing too, he seems surplus at Man City and its always shocked me how he never gets in the england team and is behind Glen Johnson!

Believable6 Unbelievable1

What about logic remy

Agree1 Disagree0

They are all injured is why we are struggling this year nothing to do with the coaching.

Agree3 Disagree2

S.Taylor was quite good last season but the fact he is now a part time player and is taking longer to come back from his regular injuries does not bode well, I do not like saying this as he is a Newcastle lad but he is a waste of wages.

Agree2 Disagree3
