Well looks like we get noone in...again! I'm all for the clubs stance on finances but we show an unbelievable lack of ambition. Where is our new RB, CB and Striker we so desperately need for this long long season? I'm dissappointed but not surprised that we dont seem to want success again this season

Believable13 Unbelievable3

Agree. fear this is the start of the us losing our top players. and were is all the money

Agree0 Disagree1

Another wasted transfer window when we all no we needed more players

Agree1 Disagree0

We have the same side as last season with the exception of Anita for Guthrie which is positive..ALL fans know if 2 defenders had been signed we would have probably been happy as long as the to Demba's stay fit
Yes lack of ambition and holding onto Ashley's money..But the team can do OK but 5th with the squad we have will be too much..

Agree1 Disagree0

Cant believe our lack of ambition, other teams who were just behind us have improved their squads so on that basis they should finish just ahead of us, i would rather have had debuchy than anita, hope he at least tries him at left back and santon at right back.....prediction 9th

Agree0 Disagree0

Are we going to hear the same moaning minnies as when AC left.
Only 2 games in, for heavens sake give them a chance and our support

Agree1 Disagree0

Well heres for a long season , even longer come january window fat ash will end up selling top players and give us a bigger mountain to climb

Agree0 Disagree0

I am a little disappointed, but not overly. The long term sustainability of the club is most important.

If we had started to throw extra millions at the Debuchy deal, the Douglas deal and the de Jong deal every club we approached would have said, NUFC are good for squeezing an extra couple of million out of. Where would it stop?

I believe walking away from deals that we could not get across the line at the boards valuation is the correct thing to do. This is exactly what happened with Papiss Cisse.

Agree0 Disagree0

I met Ashley (seemed like a nice bloke) in April and he assured me that we would get the defence sorted in this window as the club didn't fancy Simpson or Williamson, sadly this has been proven to be untrue. We desperately need a right back, centre half and striker. It would also be goo to see another attacking midfielder. Disappointing to say the least!

Agree0 Disagree0

The deal for Debuchy, Douglas et al obviously wasn't right as I'm sure Ashley would have improved the defence if it were possible. He's not daft, he sees what we see.

I suspect he thinks we can manage until January and then see if Lille are ready to deal. If not, we'll have another target identified in the mean time.

No need to panic - we have the same + Anita that won 8 out of the last 10 games last season.

DomW

Agree0 Disagree0

You met ashley and like him? well you must be related the blokes a pr1ck tighter than 2 coats of paint he wont take us any further so i wish he would sell up and go i hate him

Agree0 Disagree0

I met Ashley twice he is a kn*b and has no idea about football..He does not want high profile and is at NUFC for monetary gain. He would accept a high premiership place and CL as long as he has not to pay for it..So he has what he wants a team that will be an also ran and pick up the 70% increase in TV at the end of this season..What lot of money this person is going to make..It is a Disgrace,

Agree0 Disagree0

Ashley in it for monetary gain? Ha ha you owe him 140m for heavens sake. Plus its hard to sell a club that has no major finance to fall back on. Ie own your ground so you can remortgage etc

Agree0 Disagree0

clint demsey 6 million to spurs:( that would of been a good signing for another 3 seasons with work rate second to none....k

Believable9 Unbelievable2

Is this the same player who would only play for liverpool, watch out next transfer window.

Agree0 Disagree0

Very true mate a wasted chance ,well done Spurs imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

Good player but 6m for a player who is nearly 30 (and massive wages) is not great business in my opinion and certainly doesn't fit our policy. In 2 or 3 seasons he would be worth nothing at all - could be 15m trickling down the drain over 3 years, including the wages.

FC Twente have just signed Boyata on loan from Man City... cover for Douglas maybe if we were to make a last minute attempt to sign him?

Believable1 Unbelievable4

Ah we can wish! Its too late in the day now! If only a deal could be completed in an hour!

Agree0 Disagree0

Unfortunately not. no signings at all. 3 million spent in this window. paper thin squad. thank you mr ashley.

Afraid that boat has sailed. .... Just like all the others.

Ryan Taylor out "for several months" with cruciate ligament damage.

Believable4 Unbelievable1

Get well soon Ryan we need you mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

Really worried about the lack of trasnfers, I wonder what the Toon players would say. Bigirimana in 1 mill, Anita in 6.7 mill amalifitano free and Good 600k. 3 of them are not first teamers nor have they pleyed in decent enough leagues. The season has bearly started and R.Taylor is out. Tavernier to cover but the pressure will be immence on him and Good if we sustain injuries to our centre halfs. Then we will be saying they are crap and the goals scored will mean nothing when they start flooding into our net. I honestly cannot believe the backing from the board has been so small. Panick buying worked last time Ba is quality. Blackburn, QPR, Swansea, A Villa, Everton, Norwich, West Ham and Stoke all spent more than we have. Its simple now spend and stay up or dont and run the very likely risk of going down. Going down did us the world of good last time to sort out the mess the club was in, but going down again would be catestrophic! January I hope is a lot busier as the players would be very tired and will be looking for support!

Agree0 Disagree0

With Man c signing Maicon what about us trying to Micah Richards buy or loan until next transfer window. Would give us time to get deal done and can cover a cntre half as well. Wages maybe the problem would help his england chances playing every week.

COME ON ASHLEY BUY SOMEONE QUICK.

We most have spent the least money in this transfer window in premiership even Blackburn in Championship have spent more money

Believable5 Unbelievable3

Good job your not spending NUFC's money then, as Richards is out injured for a while.

Agree0 Disagree0

Richards is out for 10weeks but would love him in a toon top

Agree0 Disagree0

Richards is injured, with City not sure when he will be fit

Agree0 Disagree0

C'mon man he's injured.

Agree0 Disagree0

Relegation clubs get money to prevent going bankrupt, but yes it's atrocious. Not only them, Fulham, Everton, Stoke?! Ridiculous. Don't want to forget the good work MA did but he really needs to sort it out.

Agree0 Disagree0

So we will get more money then?

Gomis has travelled to England, not revealing what club he is going to, but links with Tottenham and Newcastle, might be promising

Believable4 Unbelievable5

He's not a great player, would be a disappointing signing. Gameiro would be better.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2012 16:02:22
Three deals to happen out of the blue (quite literally!) but no-one that has been mentioned in the recent press. Watch this space!

However, expect Tiote, Cabaye or Ba to leave... at this moment it looks like the Debuchy saga will cost us (IMO) our best player (Cabaye).

Hope we get a few in but can't see it m8

If the Toon do not sign anyone this window it is a MASSIVE missed opportunity to join the top 4 chasers. Pardew happy if we dont lose anyone? Grow some balls man and demand 3 quality signings to push us forward. Shows total lack of ambition from Fat Mike. We pushed last season but now look at the teams around us,L/pool,Everton,Chelsea. ALL strengthened and all improved. Us? Stand still and go backwards. Before the " could be like Pompey,Leeds,Rangers " brigade get started, lets just say that Pardews comment "" We are going for champions league places"" makes everyone look stupid. I hope im wrong and we bring the 3 players we need in but im not holding my breath. Sell up Fat Mike, we want our club to move on.

Believable6 Unbelievable3

Completely agree and what does the lack of ambition say to our best players?

Agree0 Disagree0

It's not pardew's fault he's doing the best he can with the stupid system Ashley uses and anyway I don't know why you're suddenley expecting us to get top 4 we had one good season that means nothing plenty of teams have done that and then faded away it's more important that we keep our stars and build a foundation for future greatness that chase the unachievable now because that's what happened to arsenal they kept just missing out on the good stuff and look what happened they lost their 2 best players stop being so unrealistic it's not happening any time soon

Agree0 Disagree0

Some of you make me sick, calling for MA to sell up, give your heed a shake we have never been run so well if we don't buy this window it means we have not
paid over the odds, what do you want us to do spend money we don't have and end up like Leeds or Pompey personS

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree, i miss the Freddie shepherd era. We need to return to paying clubs what they want for average players, who don't even want to play for the club. Don't panic, there's plenty of time to waste a few million quid. Has heskey signed for anyone yet?

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Great window !!. Another season ticket holder very p*ssed off

Agree0 Disagree0

Pardews phone ringing about players leaving or coming in ?

Agree0 Disagree0

It will not be Pardew's phone that is busy, He probably has no control over the transfers.

Agree0 Disagree0

What a shame, no one in, and no one wanted anyone for ashleys pocket money, Cockney mafia protests soon, same old same old, glad we live in the shadow,haha ,6 months time lets see who's laughing, bigger crowds,airport,shopping and toon centre bravado . you heard it 1st

Stories circulating of Cabaye to Arsenal for £8m plus a player
Really hope not {Ed013's Note - There is something in it, but how much, I don't know yet}

Believable4 Unbelievable5

Be gutted if it's Walcott! In fact I'd be gutted if it was anyone other than Wiltshire but that's never going to happen !

Agree0 Disagree0

8 million and walcot thats 20 million for cabaye think i would rather sell tiote....k

Agree0 Disagree0

Im hearing its walcott thats being muted but AP has rejected the offer as it wouldnt amount to less than the valuation of 25 million ans theo wants 100k a week

Agree0 Disagree0

Who would i take? well walcott or whiltshire would do ha.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well I was at the match last night and was talking to some lad. He bumped into some cockneys and they were saying a few of there mates had arsenal tops with cabaye on the back

Agree0 Disagree0

There was some prank on an Arsenal site where Cabaye was no. 17, whoever believed it is a complete fool.

Agree0 Disagree0

It is pretty obvious Ed013 is an Arsenal fan, I call call back in tomorrow to say i told you so (That Cabaye is not going to Arsenal)

Newcastle make late return for matt debuchy after ryan taylors injury 6.8 million fee, deal to be done around 6:00 tonight

Other players of interest either loic remy or batemfi gomis both around 9 million

Newcastle will try a late move to get daniel sturridge on loan with view to permanent deal, liverpool are also interested nothing will happen until chelsea complete a 22 million move for andre shurrle

One more thing saw this somewhere thought id repost it for a laugh "kaka spotted at newcastle airport, real madrid have accepted a 21 million euro deal player will sign a 4 year deal"

Ryan babel on a free, contract cancelled my hoffenheim

Believable3 Unbelievable5

Im not suprised, they just realised how bad he actually is!

He's too much of a loose cannon

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2012 10:58:46
Ryan Babel is available on a free transfer after he was released by Hoffenheim. We were linked with him this window already. I think he'd be a good signing for back-up as he's versatile, he can play on the wings or up front. What do you guys think?

Believable5 Unbelievable7

He is rubbish !

Agree0 Disagree0

Nah, he's a troublemaker. He's also shown at Liverpool and now Hoffenheim, that he blows hot and cold. He's just another Obertan.

Agree0 Disagree0

There will be no new players. The momentum from last season has gone. It will be a long slog to January with our depleted squad.

Agree1 Disagree0

I think people have a short memory with regards to Babel. He was worse than useless at Liverpool. Ask there fans if they would have him back and see there reaction

Agree0 Disagree0

My personal opinion is that we have better sitting on the bench, His head is all over the place in games and he cannot shoot or pass. He has a bit of pace which is about all he has going for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

LMAO you really are a funny guy....

Pardew says he's going to have a word with Ashley to get one more player in as Ryan Taylor was injured. we'll either get Debuchy as Madrid have not bid for him, or we'll get Douglas.

Believable8 Unbelievable10

Surely the injury to ryan must mean debuchy. extra 1m and get it done. we could mess around a bit beofre and try to get the best deal. now we just need quality in through the door.

Agree0 Disagree0

Or we will get nobody we supposedly bid for De Jong, Carroll, Debuchy and Douglas why have we not signed any of them? if the bids were genuine surely we needed them then so why not now this transfer window has been disappointing unless we get one or two in today I feel we have missed an oppurtuinty to push on this season. I know we aren't going to get superstars but to bring in only one targe in Anita is disappointing in the extreme.The squad is thin with more games no real striker cover still short of a centrehalf and weve had a net spend of around 2m,

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would we get a cetre back (Douglas) to replace a player who's injured that can play as a full back or winger or even centre mid (Raylor)? Dont be stupid man!

Agree0 Disagree0

We have a ready made replacement for taylor in anita, dont need extra cover, cb, full back (for starting 11) and striker. Done

Agree0 Disagree0

Debuchy is going to madrid as they had a fee agreed as ashley just didn't want to pay 1 measly million

Agree0 Disagree0

Lille president has said there has been no contact from Madrid regarding Debuchy

Pardew said he will speak to chairman tonight after Taylor got injured ( post match interview). We need a natural left back before Taylor was injured, santon is class but is a better right back. 2 or 3 signings and we could be really strong on all fronts. Neil Taylor from swansea would be a good signing and I know Newcastles transfer policy but we can't find very good players that are really cheap all the time. I'm not saying go back to spending massive money on waste like Owen but we need more depth and everyone knows it. Oh and before everyone slags off our performance tonight we where without 6 first teamers and we are in the next round so be happy that all the work we did last season was worth it

30 Aug 2012 22:25:50
Whilst i didn't particularly want AC back, (I'd prefer Remy) he really needs to get himself some new advisors.
If he listens to Kevin Nolans advice then he should stop right now. That is two moves he has made, both with disaster written all over them. At least he's got his drinking buddy back.
West Ham will still go down as they have some awful players. They have also spent a lot of money on average dross. Will Allardyce ever learn.

Believable9 Unbelievable2

He will keep them up there styleof play willsuit him perfectly andi canquite honestly see him scoring 20+ goals there already a threat from set plays he is the goal scorer they need
