Scumberland get Bendtner>

Believable7 Unbelievable1

Says it all. But they still wont beat us lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Not so sure,,, they will gel and their fire power has increased.... They have a kid from Arsenal (O'Roary?) thank the lord they haven't played him yet saw him for Arsenal reserves last year... Dont why Arsenal let him go? He is one for the future but he could definitely get on a lot of teams benches.

Agree0 Disagree0

Deacon looks good and is a left winger, he will get his chance, Bentdner is good player and needs a good run of games

Agree0 Disagree0

Bentdner is cat he wont score more than 5 goals all season

ASHLEY and LAMBIAS OUT!!!!!

Believable22 Unbelievable3

Yeah a negger

Agree0 Disagree0

In Mike we trust

Agree0 Disagree0

Keep dreaming mate as long as we keep going to games they will stil be there....boycot everyone

Agree0 Disagree0

FFs ashley is fixing this club and its history of bad buys. I really like the way things are going:D

Agree0 Disagree0

Give over fella..

Agree0 Disagree0

Why? Cos we missing out on a striker? I am happy with this window, some quality players in, more depth and only 1 key player gone
D-toon

Agree0 Disagree0

WOT A BUNCH OF JOKERS I ACTUALLY GAVE THEM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT FEEL PROPER LET DOWN IM GONNA SUPPORT SPURS COME ON YOU YIDS

Agree0 Disagree0

They tried to get a bargain at the last min and ashley fell flat on his fat a**e. Joke

Agree0 Disagree0

Shut up you muppet, frustrating yes, should have got a striker, but get some perspective, would you rather we panic bought and ended up with another xisco?

Agree0 Disagree0

What you talking about we have sold-
Enrique-no caps-45k p/w- £6mil
Barton- 1 cap-60k p/w
Nolan - no caps- 45k p/w - £4.5mik
and we have signed
santon - 7caps - £30k p/w - £5mil
cabaye - 5caps - £30k p/w - £5mil
Mareaux - no caps - £30k p/w - free
Ba - 10caps - £? - free

so we have replaced everyone we have let go with more pedigree. Yes we haven't got the striker that we all want but you can't really blame Ashley and llambias for trying to get the best deal for the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't believe anyone who supports this club and wants it to be a success could disagree with that.
Is it only neggers who want the club to be the best?
What other motives have you lot got?

Agree0 Disagree0

In happy we spent nothing and got 7 players in good window i think team needs to gel although the QPR game could be interesting now

Agree0 Disagree0

I honestly do not know how you morons can support MA and AP so blindly! We've known we need a striker since Carroll was sold and even before then he needed someone to play with! How can you justify them waiting till the VERY last minute to sign someone when they've had SO much time? Tbh I still need to be convinced about the players we have signed.
A joke of a club!!!
So dis-heartened!

{Ed042's Note - Signing players has nothing to do with Pardew mate, surely that much is obvious, he has said it enough times, understand frustration at the board, its justified, but Pardew should be backed by fans}

Agree0 Disagree0

If we had signed a striker, this would have been one of the best transfer seasons in recent years. BUT why did'nt we buy Bendtner?! - Number 9 material.

Agree0 Disagree0

Macheda may still come in remember? Just because the window is shut, doesn't mean it has to be announced.
Keep the faith.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im happy with the signings we got reduced our wage bill building for the future sat in 6th position didnt spend a penny and we have money available for january for a striker (five year plan sounds good to me )

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree we have got some good players in this window but needed a new striker desperately. Let's hope ba gets his scoring boots on soon!

Agree0 Disagree0

Fuming at not getting any of our 'top priority' strikers in. but why cant you see boycotting the games will only reduce our income and make it a necessity to sell again in jan.just get behind the team ffs

Agree0 Disagree0

Boycott the games so our players get demoralised that their fans hate them what a good idea (NOT) How about getting behind AP (not his fault) and the players and let them know what we think of them not MA or DL just the players.Let us shout from the terraces why we love our newcastle and whoever plays for us

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed - Who authorises the transfers at Man U, Chelsea, Livepool, Real Madrid, Man City, Barcelona, Spurs, even Aresnal (and he is s**t). If the Manager can not pick his own players to sign what use is he. ALL the suuccessful clubs have a Manager who chooses who plays for the team. Thats why they are successful (or not in the case of Arsenal). If Pardew is not involved then he is just a puppet who trains the team. We needed extra stikers since Jan 2010 (before we sold Carrol) We will never be a big club under this regime and YOU and all those other morons should STOP supporting him. He is nothing but a voicepiece for Ashley. POST THIS IF YOU DARE

{Ed042's Note - Will gladly post and reply.. your question was who authorizes transfers at these clubs.. with the exception of Spurs, Liverpool, Arsenal and Man Utd, the owners.. Man City, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona all employ the coach/manager philosophy.. it is acutally very common outside England.. at these clubs it is the exact same as at Newcastle.. the manager merely recommends who he would like to sign, it is not up to him to be involved in the transfer dealings.. and you could include Arsenal and Man Utd in that in the future, only reason its different now is because Wenger and Ferguson are those clubs, are so deeply embedded in them for so long that everything goes through them... look its a management style adopted by a lot of clubs like it or not thats how it is.. because Pardew is the one who does press conferences he is no more than a mouthpiece for the board? has no managerial or coaching ability whatsoever no? hasnt clearly had a tactical impression on every game we`ve played so far which probably got us the result in every one of those games?.. get over the puppet complex, not his fault if he relays information given to him and it doesnt come to fruition, what do want him to do?? be annoyed and even hate the board all you want, everyone has their reasons, but to hate Pardew and want him out is sorry mate absolutely ridiculous.. we just going to keep changing managers every six months yeah? that how you build stability within a team? I will stop now because I could fill ten of these pages with why that is the wrong approach to take, in my opinion, youre so wrong its unbelievable, so we`ll agree to disagree}

Agree0 Disagree0

Why is everyone talking about panic buying? We've needed a striker since January ffs. Why do people think the Cockney Mafia waited until deadline day - because they never intended to buy a striker. I was expecting this all along. Best thing to do at the moment is expect nothing. Then we won't be disappointed.

Agree0 Disagree0

Given time the new players will gel as a unit but can't help but feel that we need a quality striker to finish it all off..

Agree0 Disagree0

ED - Sorry but you are wrong - you already said "with the exception of ....." These are some of the most successful clubs in the UK,. And if Guardiola, Mourenio, Mancini do not get to choose who they sign they would not stay - yes the Board make the signings - but the manager decides the style of play and the players who will shape the team. As you say, Pardew is just a moputhpiece but if he continues to talk crap he will continue to get the flak.

{Ed042's Note - Thats a silly thing to say mate, have you any knowledge of Spanish and Italian football, most of the managers in those leagues are coach style managers, solely look after the team and any players they do want they recommend as I said, nothing more.. do you not think Pardew said who he wanted no? not having a go just interested to see if you think Pardew doesnt select the players he would like to sign.. and no the original poster called him no more than a mouthpiece, sorry he said he is nothing but a voicepiece, I merely said he relays information he is given because he is the man who is in the press conference, its not Pardew making this stuff up himself.. it is very difficult being a coach/manager and not having 100% influence, but we are far from the only club like it, just frustrates me when people call for the head of a bloke who is clearly imo doing a decent job}

Agree0 Disagree0

Couldnt agree more to the comment posted in reply to that person from Ed. Too many so called fans come on and waffle about boycotts and sacking pardew its ridiculous. Ok we did not get a striker ( minus Ba) thats a bit gutting, what we did however was sign the captain of the current French Champions and a Champions league winning left back who has already won more medals and caps than Enrique is ever likely to.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed....are there any decent strikers maybe on free transfers?

{Ed042's Note - Havnt even looked into yet mate, hasnt been on my mind today, wont be until tomorrow tbh, will let you know, post a list of decent ones or something tomorrow afternoon.. going to spend the morning watching cartoons with the little man tomorrow, see if spongebob is a free agent and can bang in 20 a season!}

Agree0 Disagree0

It's been a tough night for everyone Ed, and emotions are clearly running high. But I support your opinion. Any attempt to boycott or sour the mood at games is extremely counter-productive. We have brought in good players, Pardew seems ( especially from his half time team talks) to know what he is doing, the organisation of the team on the pitch is best it has been since Bobby. Today is a let down, but we needed a striker for half of last season, and didn't we still do better than expected?!?

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't want them out have you seen the transfer activities. everyone is saying sign the player at the start of the window. ashley and llambias had a plan sign at the end of window so players are cheaper and will sign immediatly and not demand huge wage demands as we are in the best league in the world

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed cannot believe what your saying. Ashley is purely money driven. I agree that we need run the club correctly but not the deprement of the team. we have needed a striker since Carroll left. 8 months ago. Thats plenty of time to get one in. The simple fact is Fat Ash is only interested in taking money out nothing more. Its a one in one out policy. As for the lad comparing players in and out. Agree until Jose. Spain are the best team in the world and its hard for him to get in. Santon should have been bought to play with Jose not to replace him. If Ashley showed some ambition we could have kept him Said it himself. Take the blinkers off. ASHLEY OUT!!

{Ed042's Note - Didnt say anything about Ashley mate. Was talking about Pardew alone}

Agree0 Disagree0

You didn't get Bentdner coz he went to the north east top dogs of the last 3 years, our number 9 material with an option to buy him for 8m at the end of the season

Agree0 Disagree0

Bentdner most overated player in the league

Agree0 Disagree0

Bentdner, Ngog and Carlton cole worst strikers ever, id prefer mike ashley up front

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 22:22:49
There we are - confirmed on ssn no Ruiz or Ridgewell. Lame.

Believable11 Unbelievable2

Wot a Joke Why not try and sign this fella earlier wasted time on maiga erdinic and roux why didnt go for ruiz and ciss earlier

Agree0 Disagree0

Same old story just a smoke screen total gutted

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope MA ain't planning a matchday visit any time soon after this letdown, 8 months to sort a striker total joke.

Agree0 Disagree0

I knew they would not sign anyone.mike ashley is a t**t!

Agree0 Disagree0

Think its been a smoke screen we will get some divvy like last year like kuqi...ashley had a chance to put things right and again has not....edd042 what do you think..

{Ed042's Note - He messed up this time, people got on their back unjustifiably imo last January due to only having 2 hours to get signings.. this time round the funds and time were there.. should have got it done, might see a loan deal or two will cushion the blow but cant defend it really, HBA needs to stay fit when he comes back now and we`ll be fine, if he doesnt we`ll find it hard against top half sides}

Agree0 Disagree0

This is a joke, how many strikers have we been linked with us over the past eight months. We sign Ba who has been awful. Absolute disgrace. WTF is going on?

Agree0 Disagree0

Not just fat mike, Pardews promised another striker why leave it to last minute.

Agree0 Disagree0

Gutted, what a joke

Agree0 Disagree0

When are yous gonna learn ? ha ha

Agree0 Disagree0

Wow lots of neggers

Agree0 Disagree0

Just WHEN will people realise that this owner couldn't care less about the fans or the club.
Who in their right mind would want to be in charge of a Premiership club and not have a striker worthy of the name? It is obvious that Ashley is not bothered whether we have a team that can really challenge or not. The guy's a disgrace to a fine football institution.
When is everyone going to get together to kick him out? When we go down AGAIN?

Agree0 Disagree0

To the bloke who commented wow lots of neggers. Have you shelled out fortunes on a season ticket for years, hoping that a decent striker will come in and do the job that shearer or Ferdinand did? Pardew promised a striker after signing Ba. I think everyone has a right to air their opinions.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 22:11:34
Sky bet have Ruiz at 4/11 to join Fulham and only 2/1 for the Toon.

news on the BBC website is that Newcastle are finished in the Window

Believable10 Unbelievable0

Surprise surprise, They have had since Jan to get a replacement for Carroll

Agree0 Disagree0

Nee surprise there then, Pardew try and explain this one tomorra ya puppet.

Agree0 Disagree0

Indeed mate, it's crazy it's like Newcastle want to hedge there bets in the EPL without a 'Prize Striker' and it's risky. Adstatoon

Agree0 Disagree0

Ashley has fleeced our squad and has lied continually about 'stengthening' the team. He is a complete crook and a thief and is backed by a dodgy casino manager and a sycophantic puppet. It's time for the fans to vote with their feet. It is tough but it's for the best in the long-term. When the fat lunatic sees that the money is no longer coming in, then he might do us all a favour and go.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lee Ryder Tweeted - Now been told Newcastle United have completed their business in the window. How Can We Be Done With Still 1 Hour To Go And No Striker In Sight!

Believable6 Unbelievable1

Like i said weeks ago we wont get a striker. Christ we aint even done a loan deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

And we aint released any news of signings

Agree0 Disagree0

F//k lee ryder s**te bloke s**te newspaper how does he know never tells the truth the mans a tosser

Agree0 Disagree0

Say no more

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed how can we fail this big when we had months to sign a striker? No excuses about Erdinc please. Please also cheer me up and mention one team in the premiership that has a worse striker squad then we because I canĀ“t think of one.

{Ed042's Note - There`s plenty mate, agree its not strong but its not the worst... no excuses for not getting a striker in though}

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe the striker hinged on Ranger leaving. Would have liked to see Gignac come in, if only on loan.

Ridgewell would have been an ok squad player. Really worried now in case Taylor or Colo get injured. Lets not forget, Taylor doesn't tend to play 38 league games a season. All we have as back up is Willo and he's injured. That means flaming James Perch is probably the only player that can play centre back, save for Kadar.

Agree0 Disagree0

SSN deals for ridgewell and ruiz fallen through

Agree0 Disagree0

Because we have a tight git for an owner, who believes he can sign everyone for a couple of million and offer them £10000 per week contracts.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why is anyone surprised. Another huge surplus for MA in this window.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol love the neggers weve got 5 strikers do we really need a big massive signing weve got ben arfa coming back give Best a decent run reckon he can only get better and Ba is a good player no problems top 7 finish i reckon plus theres always jan transfer window

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha always the jan window... didnt we say that last jan about august and the year b4, oh and dont worry Ba go ANC in jan too..

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeh in jan they can feed us another load of b*****KS. In the words of the Who song ''wont get fooled again''.

Agree0 Disagree0

Looks like a long boring season for us then Lets just hope Ben arfa gets back to his best and Ba improves or we could really struggle for goals

Agree0 Disagree0

Helicopters can't fly in/over Newcastle after eight.

31 Aug 2011 21:55:46
Ed; Seriously, are'nt we signing anyone?

{Ed042's Note - Doesnt look like it mate..}

Believable4 Unbelievable1

You finally lost your optimism ed? not much hope for the rest of us then :l

{Ed042's Note - Disappointed mate if they dont a FW in, rest of the business has been top notch and understand the logic behind it, dont want to get fleeced on deals but a very good striker would have capped it off, looks very unlikely at this stage tbh}

Agree0 Disagree0

No sign of a striker is proper depressing! Ed...what whiskey you got!?!

{Ed042's Note - Ha you mean what whiskey did I have}

Agree0 Disagree0

Will we still be able to get Gignac on Loan over the next couple of days?

Agree0 Disagree0

Even sky sports transfer clock thing thinks we won't get either. I hate the final day, we never do anything decent, though we haven't sold anyone (Yet!).

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 21:52:45
ed is it true that theres a striker avin a medical at st james park

{Ed042's Note - No mate, dealings on Ruiz were taking place out of London}

Believable3 Unbelievable3

31 Aug 2011 21:40:14
Ed what's happening with situ? All gone quiet

{Ed042's Note - Between us and Swansea apparently, complications over requested release clause stopped the deal in its tracks}

Believable4 Unbelievable0

31 Aug 2011 21:32:20
havent heard about gignac in the past hours, ed do you know anything about him?

{Ed042's Note - Impossible to find out with Ruiz story, loan deals are available after tonight anyway so not a priority I presume}

Believable4 Unbelievable1

Thanks

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed - loan deals are only open to football league clubs after tonight not Premier League

{Ed042's Note - You 100% on that? I thought so too but was told otherwise}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 21:09:40
well its after 9 now still no further forward is ridgewell coming ! is ruiz on his way ! are we getting anyone ED you got owt for us be nice for us to know something concrete deeing wor heeds in here in turkey geordie tom

{Ed042's Note - Sorry for the delay mate, I hate deadline day! nightmare! anyway, Ruiz deal looking less likely the closer it gets to 11pm, as I said in the 1st place we`d be blessed if we pulled it off... ridgewell still in talks as things stand}

Believable1 Unbelievable2

ive heard that the ruiz deal is dead coz hes went to fulham:( ffs ashley get out of our club

{Ed042's Note - Still no confirmation from Fulham or Newcastle}

Believable4 Unbelievable2

How can you blame Ashley he put a bid in for him and sent his helicopter down leaving the decision to the player!

Agree0 Disagree0

I think the longer the situation goes on the more likely he is to get on that helicopter

Agree0 Disagree0

Cant leave it to late.it must be a 50min flight from london in a chopper?

Agree0 Disagree0

The helicopter may well be there, but if there was any true intention this deal would have been done ages ago.

We've spent too long chasing players that could not come to the club for one reason or another.

Perhaps phony bids have been submitted without any real intention of them being followed through.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why have we waited til the last minute?! Why couldnt we have made this bid months ago?

Agree0 Disagree0

Ppl on here need a good kick up the arse only yesterday ashley was a god for pulling the santon deal off n today it's get him out ppl need to get a grip wat did u expect ??

Agree0 Disagree0

We were backing Ashley as he doing what was promised - replacing the players that weve sold on. And Santon was probably one of the best signings weve made, but ultimately we were promised a striker. I was prasing MA yesterday based on the fact we were still getting a striker.

Agree0 Disagree0

Replacing players that have gone -__- dont make me laugh carroll has been gone for 8months and still no replacment.....

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 21:08:52

Believable2 Unbelievable12

Strange considering he went to Valencia a week ago

Believable4 Unbelievable3

He will stay with the fulham deal! Said earlier in year he would like to play for them. Has links to jol and they in london but we can hope!....JKM,Spenny

Agree0 Disagree0

Would absolutely love this signing but unfortunately I think we will lose out on this to European football. However it is unlike us to offer better terms than another club and every signing we have made has loved our ambition!! Let's hope Ruiz can be convinced!!! Come on the toon!!

Agree0 Disagree0

I live in holly cross, not far from benton. A hellicoptor has just been flying over very low. And it wasn't the bizzy chopper.

Agree0 Disagree0

The helicopter owned by Ashley is still down south, its just been moved heliports due to flying restrictions at the first heliport after 8pm, looking very doubtful now that ruiz will sign

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 20:31:07

Believable8 Unbelievable1

This is good is he not a CB who can play left? Could mean him being left back and saton right back. If im right our defence is beast. am i right ed?

{Ed042's Note - Have the requests for info in the queue lads, sorry for the delay getting back, will publish them as I hear news.. Twente have accepted 2nd bid for Ruiz, but cutting it very tight getting him up to Newcastle for talks, medical, signing if accepted terms etc.. Fulham in advanced talks so would be very lucky to snatch him from under their noses at this stage... will publish other posts soon with other info}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Ed042 do you think the second bids from us and the ridgewell as caught me off guard never saw that one but would be a good signing..lol

{Ed042's Note - It is from us 100%, he is said to be currently undergoing medical at Fulham so would be blessed if we got him tbh}

Ed, you know anything about this?

{Ed042's Note - Us and Fulham in for him, thats the latest, but lee ryder has said its a no go}

Agree0 Disagree0

The station indicates that he is in England with interest from both Fulham and Newcastle. It also states fulham are the favourites to win his signature.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks

If fulham sign him we'll probably get Ruiz, cant see them both signing for Fulham.

Were not going to sign a striker for gods sake! please pardew sign someone, Ed do you have any gossip of any strikers that youve heard about in the last hour

Heard a lot of things about Andy Carroll returning on loan if Bellamy heads back to Liverpool, I can see this being a possibility as he seems to have fallen out of favour at Liverpool, any views?

Believable2 Unbelievable10

Lol fallen out of favour? its been 3 games mate. dalglish is experimenting with the team, end of the day you dont pay 35 million for someone and not give them a decent run of play. basically it wont happen, for arguments sake if it did happen , Its v.likley hed get booed by the fans

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a hope in hell,they paid 35 million they've got to make it work out.

Agree0 Disagree0

The only way he should be returning back to us is in an urn....

Agree0 Disagree0

Must be a rumour. Can't see them allowing him on loan only 7 months after paying £35m for him.

Would be great if true though!

Agree0 Disagree0

Your probably right about him not coming on loan, but I hav it on very good authority that all is not well within the Liverpool camp where Carroll is concerned. Has already had several run ins with coaching staff over his socialising/boozing. Also he cant abide Gerrard & Carrager! Apparently they're a right set of big headed clicky Bxxxxxd's. But I'm sure I could put up with them for £80,000 a week:)))

by no means is this definitive, might be completely made up, but a friend of mine claims to have connections with stuggart, and hes heard reports in germany that the cisse deal from freiburg could still yet be resurrected if newcastle increase the offer with regards to added on extras, i.e. goal bonuses + appearances related extras, although he did add that at this late stage newcastle have turned their attention to other targets and may sign a loan player and leave a possible permanent signing until January

Just wait and see before shooting the messenger.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Sturridge will be worth in excess of 30mil next year,we should grab him if there is any chance Chelsea will allow him to go.

Agree0 Disagree0

Noway will the fat man stump up 15 million, 5-6 million is the highest he will go, so therefore no chance of getting sturridge.

Agree0 Disagree0

Apparently sturridge wants out

This rumour is starting build momentum. Chelsea are going to allow him to leave. Liverpool are interested but think they are going for Bellamy.

Hmm. Not sure about this one, but rather Rodallega than no one

Whelan would not sell to Ashley for that price, it would be hugely inflated, more like £12m. I do like him though, and think he is the kind of player who would look good with better players around him.

Agree0 Disagree0

RodaLLEGA.....shocking! The spelling on this site is atrocious.

Agree0 Disagree0

I like the optimism of the comment about spending the 35 mil. This will not happen. we might spend 5-10 if were lucky. Adstatoon

Agree0 Disagree0

Balotelli wont be coming. Not a cat in hells chance. Ashley doesn't like bad boys

Agree0 Disagree0

Would love balotelli to come, hes on 100k a week though so wont happen unless man city pay 50-60k of it and he actually wants to come, he would probably favour a move back to italy. if he hates manchester chances are he wont like newcastle much either

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah right i dont think ashley would spend around £30m on two players

Agree0 Disagree0

Considering hes already spent close to 15 million, on some exciting signings, some of our fans are never happy, this is hypothetical before an SMB comments, but we could sign ronaldo for 80 million and some fans would still bitch about wanting messi for 100 mil, lets wait until 11pm at least to start moaning about money spent

Any news on signings ed?

Cheers.

{Ed042's Note - Not as yet mate sorry, give me about an hour and I will post an update to this thread}

Believable2 Unbelievable4

Hi ed042 any news yet on signings you said an our sick of me hubby saying we getting zamora and they getting cisse??

{Ed042's Note - your hubby is right Zamora is a possibility, Cissč looks highly unlikely, they want £15m, I think we would buy Sturridge if we were willing to go to £15m}

Agree0 Disagree0

Its been an hor ed dont keep us waiting lol (sorry i realise your busy but suspence is killing me)

{Ed042's Note - Right sorry for the delay, its a nightmare trying to find out anything, will list them off below and what I know as things stand, very hard to look in depth into stuff deadline day, anyway here goes, deep breath...

Main Targets...

Maiga... looks all but dead unless Sochaux sign another striker, if they do a deal could be pushed quickly but not optimistic as things stand

Cissč... unless we meet the £15m the want he is going nowhere and it looks doubtful we will at the moment

Roux... sporting director has said that he wont move as we had to avail of bid and release 5 days ago, very slim chance of it still but unlikely

Loan Deals...

Gignac... no real substance to back it up yet but we have been linked on more than one occasion and he is said to be coming to England today

Macheda... interest has cooled because of the fee to buy him at end of loan is said to be approx. £7m, which is too high in nufc opinion

Ballotelli... linked with us purely out of relationship with Santon, again loan with option to buy for £14m touted, stronger links with Spurs and Arsenal at the moment

Sturridge... always was going to be linked, AVB seems keen on him though so a loan deal without option to buy would be most likely which I doubt we would go for unless extremely stuck, and even at that I would say it would be a 6 month loan deal at most

Ones to keep an eye on...

Maynard... was rumours last night of a £5m bid, Bristol unwilling to sell to direct competition and Leicester failed with bids of over £6m, have since been rumoured ot have signed Beckford

Rodallega... Stoke said to be interested, we have been linked but Dave Whelan wouldnt make it easy for us

Zamora... Rumoured to be on his way up North, has been left out by Fulham recently due to injury, suspect whether he was though

Kalou... Rumoured to be allowed to leave for right price, has been mooted links to nufc, could be a possibility due to being interested in Sturridge

Bendtner... Is not moving to Stoke, Sporting deal collapsed so we are the only other main contenders for his signature over the past month, unless a late bid has come in from someone else or he has been convinced to stay at Arsenal (unlikely) it could be a possibility

Other names linked with nothing to back them up as yet...

Zarate... Ogunjimi... Mouloungui

Thats what I know for the moment, sorry all, as I said nea rimpossible to get anything definitive

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed042's Note - Any other names you have heard linked post them and i`ll update, probably have missed a couple, brain is fried already}

Agree0 Disagree0

Cheers for the update ed

Agree0 Disagree0

Will be chuffed to bits if we sign Bendtner.

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe a cheeky double bid for sturridge and kalou?

Agree0 Disagree0

So sad if we end up with a crappy player like Bendtner. DidnĀ“t you promise us at least a striker today Ed? Looks like we wonĀ“t sign anyone today. Not even the try-out players??

{Ed042's Note - News to me that I ran the club, if I had known earlier I would have signed someone mate, why didnt you let me know?}

Agree0 Disagree0

Nice one ed.

Derek has told both Chelsea and Man Utd that we will not take players on loan...They must have an option to buy!

Believable12 Unbelievable1

Well derek why dont you just f**k off and spend some money or the 10000 less fans at the st james last weekend might be a regular thing.

{Ed042's Note - There was 2K less than the same fixture last year, and the away end was extended by 1K.. so essentially 1K less toon supporters.. feel your frustration though mate, imagine how frustrating it is for me having to investigate 50 rumours and them getting knocked back one by one, hold the nerve until around 4pm, then its time to start worrying}

Going to be honest, Would love this, but i don't see this happening, we have being linked on and off with Sturridge, and Villa-boas has said he is holding onto him anyway. Adstatoon.

We will only take the player with an option to buy!

Links? Evidences? I'll be happy enuf if its only half a season. But, if you're right, oh well, i heard it here first. Class. but hadnt the club gave a reason stating hes too expensive?

It is exciting just now. Heard the Maiga definately won't happen as Sochaux are refusing to sell to us. I'm ok with this as I see him as a risk.

That means we are setting our sights on Demba Cisse who I think is a quality player. May take £11.5-13m to get him but a proven goalscorer in decent league at a lower club.

Also, Balotelli? Whats this? Apparently friends with Santon and would be interested in a loan move.........................Surely not?

Geo

Believable4 Unbelievable3

Balotelli wages are too much, however i think if we can get City to pay majority wages. we may get lucky, but tbh i don't see Ashley parting with much more than 10 million to sign players

Adstatoon

Agree0 Disagree0

Balotelli? Surely he wanna check out how simple our beeps are before joining? :D

On a serious note, no, I wouldn't sign him even if he's the last striker on earth. Would completely destroy the team spirit.
Or, maybe santon can be the better man and teach him a few things.

Agree0 Disagree0

Shut he would be at least 20m and will stay at Man City, why leave Man city who could win the premiership to go to a newcastle who will be in a relegation battle by the end of the season

{Ed042's Note - Do me a favour mate, leave it out for today ha I have too much to do without moderating your constant mails winding up geordies lol you know Sunderland are after players too yeah?}

Agree0 Disagree0

Mancini's already came out and said he's not for sale or available for a loan move. He's staying at Man City.

We wouldnt spend 15m on one player anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry ed banter man! can't go through the day without my daily put some looney geordies in their place, but yeah important day for both our clubs with transfers

{Ed042's Note - Haha you`re grand lad, enjoy the banter from you normally but todays a bad day for it, i`m spending the translating foreign languages in between answering questions here, bottle of whiskey already looking tempting lol}

Agree0 Disagree0

Grow up smb

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, do you think Marouane Chamakh or Saloman Kalou are available ?

{Ed042's Note - Yes for the right price, said two months ago we should go for Kalou, think he is very underrated, havnt heard us linked though}

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks. Yes thats what i thought aswell, what do you think the price would be around £6m?

{Ed042's Note - Yeah around that id say up front, with add ons probably closer to 8 to 10}

Agree0 Disagree0

It's really annoying as a newcastle fan atm, because we just won't spend the cash to challenge for Europa league, and i seems the only way we will get in is though a cup, or the fair play (ok maybe not the fair play)

It's On The Newcastle Page On Sky Sports Website

Agree0 Disagree0

It's on the website.
hope we got an alternative lined up. not being racist, but i'd prefer a non-african striker any how, cos we could already lose shola and ba to the african nations cup and losing a 2nd or 3rd striker to that could be dangerous for our season.

Agree0 Disagree0

"Not being racist..but" best opening to any comment, ever. I agree though, we would end up possibly losing another player to the cup of nations.

I hope we can show our financial strength on him, as i see him as CB backup.
Still no word on Remy tho.

Believable2 Unbelievable3

Apparently the reason we havent signed him yet is MA doesnt want to write a release clause into his contract. Which is quite right imo, wouldnt want to see him leave for peanuts like when we stole Cabaye.

Well we should put a release clause in, But it increases By 5 million each year and start it off at a 4 mil buyout/

{Ed042's Note - Was interest for past two weeks in taking him, thought it may die down with recent assault story but clubs seem to want to take him so I would presume there is truth to it}

Ed Please tell me what is going on! I hear:
Macheda on loan ( 50/50)?
Maiga ( quite likely )?
Any others?
Thanks in advance! CambsToon

{Ed042's Note - Macheda wont be signed unless there is an option to buy, loan deals dont seem to be wanted by the board and the fee-to-buy is too high at the moment... Maiga is likely with Sochuax signing a striker but its a messy transfer in general, hard to know where exactly it is at... a lot of other names being touted, have covered them on other posts but as far as the two you`ve mentioned they should go one way or the other early enough tomorrow, will know better where we stand then mate}
