newcastle are interested in gabriel obertan, not is bad player and has good future
who tink?

Believable18 Unbelievable5

He is a load of s**t but thats what fat bloke want cheap s**t

Agree0 Disagree0

Point is hell be about 3mil and with a premier league season under his belt (1 where he actually plays) hell be worth about 6mil personally hes better than Routledge +has a point to prove so why not we do need numbers and a RW is one especially

Agree0 Disagree0

And you have ago at us for getting man utd fringe players. bloody hypocrites, Obertan is sh*te, at least O'shea and Brown got a few games for Man Utd

Agree0 Disagree0

Obertan ain't old though

Agree0 Disagree0

Obertan has played more games than brown over the last few years and man u have better competition on the wings than in defence so who is better 32 brown or 22 obertan

Agree0 Disagree0

Obertan is a very skillfull and talented player, He is not getting in the Man Utd team because they have about 6 wingers fighting for 2 places, Only 22 and could be quite brilliant given a run of 5 or 6 games. He never got a chance at Man Utd, They expect someone to come off the bench and be a instant hit or they are let go.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hypocrites

Agree0 Disagree0

Its down to the age of the players... do you understand? a younger player can play for longer & in Ashleys point of view, have a sell on value..
Why do you even look, or comment on NUFC rumours anyway? couldnt care what you mackems do. obsessed with us as per usual.

Agree0 Disagree0

You lot dont post on our site do you?
If we didnt , there would be no banter just boring rants from people like you.
Cheer up it could get worse.

Seen him play the other week didn't look too good.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bayern Munich will never sell contento. Especially at a time when they've got to prove the better then Dortmund since they won the league last reason.

Agree0 Disagree0

Graham Carr was in Germany last week

Agree0 Disagree0

Christ his names a poem

Agree0 Disagree0

I wouldn't be happy with this move (I'm sorry couldn't resist).

Agree0 Disagree0

Was he the bloke looking to avenge his fathers death in Princess Bride?

Agree0 Disagree0

Price 8m, survey says errr errr

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't think this will happen for one ashley won't pay 8m for striker let alone left back also player probably has his sights on European football cl or el

Tiote in London Signing for Chelsea for £22 Million,fee already agreed. Another Reason why Joey Barton Kicked off, you heard it here first

Believable19 Unbelievable38

He's doing no such thing, it's just been confirmed he's still in Ghana sorting VISA.
Mackem

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi ed is tiote back in the uk yet.

{Ed042's Note - Not as yet, still awaiting visa, can take up to three weeks, will miss the Fiorentina game but should be back for opener against Arsenal}

Agree0 Disagree0

Get a life, if your going to make something up at least make it credible

Agree0 Disagree0

BETTER NOT BE SELLING HIM FAT MAN BUT WOULDNT PUT ANYTHING PAST HIM

Agree0 Disagree0

Al bet u 1000 up front now he's not pls put ur money where ur mouth is al even give u my details to if u agree on this bet if ur so sure

Agree0 Disagree0

Tiote us going no were he has even said it himself so stop posting crap I bet this guy who wrote this crap 500000 he be at the toon

Agree0 Disagree0

NO ITS TRUE HE ISN'T IN GHANA ITS JUST A SMOKESCREEN FOR MIKE ASHLEY'S EVIL CONSPIRACY HE'S BEING SOLD. I'M WRITING THIS IN ALL CAPS WHICH MEANS ITS DEFINITELY TRUE.

Agree0 Disagree0

If you would have said 42 million it would have been half believable

Agree0 Disagree0

Even chelsea wont pay that type of money if ye said 10mill then i would have believed it but 22 no way unless its liverpool his meeting

Agree0 Disagree0

Just don't bite to these SMB post's, they're obviously obsessed with us. ALWAYS IN OUR SHADOW

Agree0 Disagree0

Liverpool would have paid at least 60m.

Agree0 Disagree0

Liverpool would have paid 100 million.

Abramovich would have sold his yacht and chucked in Torres and Van Aanholt.

You heard it here first.

Agree0 Disagree0

And ashley would keep the lot

Agree0 Disagree0

Has anyone taken a second to think that perhaps Tiote is in Ghana dealing with a personal (family) issue, and doesn't want his personal life splashed all over the news. So this 'visa' issue has been told to the public.

Just a thought, but it would make sense, seeing as he left England for the states with no visa issue and then it suddenly it becomes a problem. In addition there is no word from the team regarding a date when he will return.... again just a thought, but would explain a
lot.

Agree0 Disagree0

He is valued at 15m, but good news if he is sold, more money for agent ashley to spend down the casino and in greggs

Agree0 Disagree0

Tiotes family are in Ivory Coast plus Llambias is in Ghana trying to sort it out.

Agree0 Disagree0

BARTON STAYING

STURRAGE ON WAY


TWO PLAYERS FROM SPURS.

Believable19 Unbelievable38

Barton isn't staying, too much bad between him and the board. He will be sold as soon as somebody offers him the wages and contract he wants

Agree0 Disagree0

Is that Sturridge? Unfortunatey barton will stay because no other club is stupid enough to take on his circus and antics.

Agree0 Disagree0

I wish Caps Lock made things more true...

Agree0 Disagree0

IT DOES...

Agree0 Disagree0

Sold?
Cant even give him away.

Agree0 Disagree0

Nobody would touch barton with a bargepole when your brought up with scum you are scum him and his family he should have been sacked when he went to jail necastle united dont deserve this

Agree0 Disagree0

Why are Sunderland fans posing at Newcastle fans spouting their jealousy about Barton? Shame noone is the red and white stripes plays for the shirt and you have a Newcastle fan as manager, haha.

Agree0 Disagree0

Because it's written in caps, This must be true............ not.

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't understand the massive turnaround towards Barton ok he screwed but said only what everyone else wanted too
Don't agree. With how he done but I for one think some comments are just hypocritical same people were chanting his name for the last two seasons

Agree0 Disagree0

CAPS ARE GOOD
BARTON STAYING
STURRIDGE COMMING
TWO PLAYERS FROM SPURS.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well why do arsenal, tottenham, and aston villa want barton

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 15:49:40
Newcastle to bid £5m for Bursaspor forward Surcan Yildirim

Believable8 Unbelievable27

I really hope they buy him because when I was Newcastle in Football Manager this guy scored an amazing amount of goals and led the team to the premier league title :)

Agree0 Disagree0

I certainly hope this is true. Would not make up for flogging all the experienced players, but would show some ambition. More so than Cameron Jerome.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 15:20:45
Barnetta has been offered £40k/wk as part of £4million deal. Deal accepted but terms need vastly improving. No new striker will arrive before start of season, Pardew will play lone striker.

Believable22 Unbelievable23

Barnetta gents states not a hope in hell

Agree0 Disagree0

I guess you meant agent? And what he actually said was not at that wage.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tell his agent thats it ,take it leave it.
2million/year is good pay.

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't really say take it or leave it like we're doing them a favour.. It is less than he is currently on after all.

Also his agent said there isn't a hope in hell of us getting him on 40k per week... Not in general.

Agree0 Disagree0

It isn,t a favour the Agent gave the game away whenhe would play at other clubs for less than 40k

Agree0 Disagree0

Barnetta is NOT coming here...end of. He is bigger than our club...in fact, with the cicus that is Newcastle United...most players are bigger than our club.

Agree0 Disagree0

Actually he would come here if we paid him the wages he's on now.

There is a reason he'd go to teams like Arsenal for 40k per week too. Arsenal are in the CL. He has that at Leverkusen, but if he's going to leave for a club who is not playing in Europe he loses out in tat way, therefore he wants it made up for in another way. Simple as really.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 14:57:46
pardew been talking to his close friend Ferguson about Gabriel Obertan coming to the toon

Believable30 Unbelievable18

Hes no better than wayne ferreday...

Florenton hamburg interested in Barton

Believable5 Unbelievable17

Florenton are a very good side aren't they????

Agree0 Disagree0

Didn't say anything about quality of sides ya muppet

Agree0 Disagree0

Not sure if that's the point trying to be made.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hahaha muppet... if ya gonna make up a rumour atleast make the team interested from this planet.. haa

Agree0 Disagree0

Isnt that a dental floss?

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 14:34:03
Interesting pardew refused to talk about barnetta / obertan usually he is first to rule out rumours

Believable35 Unbelievable1

04 Aug 2011 14:29:06
As a replacement for Joey Barton, Newcastle will try to bring in Vladimir Weiss on a season long loan, no option to buy as city will not sell to club in same division.

Believable6 Unbelievable25

Fits the transfer policy at the min - young & useless

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 14:03:18
With the lack of movement on a striker, I've heard that Newcastle will re-sign Shefki Kuqi on a short term deal until January when the winter transfer window opens.

Believable15 Unbelievable50

Dunno where you heard that but take it back to the wheelie bin you found it in m8

Agree0 Disagree0

All I have to say on that is. NOT A CHANCE.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sad, just very sad, and I don't mean kuqi

Agree0 Disagree0

Shefti 'the three legged polar bear' kuqi number 9

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't want to believe it. But wouldn't put it past Ashley being a tight ass with his wallet.

Agree0 Disagree0

A mackem posted this for giggles, what they dont understand that is despite being what nearly 40 kuqi is faster than both there new defenders in Brown and O'shea and there first teamers so LOL

Agree0 Disagree0

I bet Shefki could score more than 9 in the Championship.

Agree0 Disagree0

Mackems are good for a laugh sometimes.

Agree0 Disagree0

This would want to be bull

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh yer i also heard we re-sign campbell and offer smith a new 5 year contract

Agree0 Disagree0

Probably.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 13:23:47
Ed any idea who are striker target is now that we've missed out on Gameiro, Gervinho and Erdinc?
I think Shane Long could be a decent option but people are now saying we are not intersted in him.

Believable13 Unbelievable3

{Ed042's Note - We are still, wont pay 7mil for him though, cash plus swap still a possibility.. apart from that striker targets are said to be Beckford, who we tried to sign twice before Everton did.. Jerome, again cash plus swap rumoured, Ranger going the other way.. and finally Crouch, cant see this being true though}

Agree0 Disagree0

All of them wouldn't add anything if jerome comes im never going to see nufc again

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 12:52:40
pardew to walk out due to dressing room unrest. Ketsbaia to return as manager. Amdy faye free transfer to replace Leeds bound alan smith. Xisco to get more prominent role in first team as struggling to get new striker.

Believable18 Unbelievable36

Daft mackam Haha get a life

Agree0 Disagree0

I believe with the lack of movement in the transfer market xisco will get more of an chance this season aswell as sammy ameobi getting to partnership with demba ba as he has preformed well during pre season

Agree0 Disagree0

Xisco will be shipped out on loan to free up wages but I agree Ferguson vuckic nd Sam ameobi could do the job this year

Agree0 Disagree0

Hehe... Keep trying mackem, if you wish enough it might come true?

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah. like all you sgb's wished for a billionaire to take over. he did and you still not happy ha ha ha mad max

Agree0 Disagree0

Unfortunately mad max, our owner is not a billionaire. Do they not teach maths on the wear?

Agree0 Disagree0

Mike Ashley is a billionaire just a tight arsed one.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why do makams read nufc rumors. the last thing i would want to do is read about them, guess they all secretly want to be geordies.

Agree0 Disagree0

All Mackems like reading bout the biggest northern club, that's why they come and visit and leave childish comments

Next Mackem to come on here, just remember ya managers a Geordie and OUR favorite all time Mackem manager- Big Lawire Mc is a Geordie too he he he SMB's-- FACT

Agree0 Disagree0

Sammy for number 9

Agree0 Disagree0

It does seem that the mackems have a bit of a penis envy about NUFC... Perhaps its the anger of knowing that no matter what, they will always be seen as No.2

Agree0 Disagree0

Would love to see Ketsbia return to the club as manager. He was an absolute nutter. Last I heard he'd be done in his home country for firing a rifle into crowd...

Agree0 Disagree0

Ashley was worth 750 million last time I checked.. That is not a billion.

{Ed042's Note - Approx. 1.3 billion last count, largely tied up though, not as if its sitting in his sky rocket}

Agree0 Disagree0

Mackem bell end, dont ye have yer own websites?

Agree0 Disagree0

"Leeds bound Alan Smith" you serious?? thought that was dead (please please please let him go to lufc)

Agree0 Disagree0

Who is the number 1 club in thw N.E. Middlesbrough?
We finished just above you last season. Are we talking fact or history.
If you dont make any further decent signings you will struggle. I dont think you will be relegated this seson but unless things change I cant see you in the top half of the table.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 11:09:44
Gabriel obertan righthand side attacking midfielder from man united, young 22 year old frenchman... The chronicle will be running this story later today

Believable19 Unbelievable21

No thanks

Agree0 Disagree0

THAT BOY COULD NOT EVEN SCORE INTO AN OPEN NET FROM 6YARDS OUT LOL

Agree0 Disagree0

Please please say this is not true

Agree0 Disagree0

French. Should fit in with the other 3 nobodies from France.

Agree0 Disagree0

Stupid comment. 1 x full French international, 1 x nearly French international

Agree0 Disagree0

True It's in the chronicle, reading it now

Agree0 Disagree0

Irionic that seems though you take the mick about us going after man utd fringe players

Agree0 Disagree0

He isn't a fringe player as he plays quite often and he still has alot to learn he is skillfull and i'd say he is better than jonas wes brown n john o'shea go back to ure hole SMB

Agree0 Disagree0

Has a great track record capped at every age level from 16 to 21.
Age 22 two footed ,plays left or right side 6foot 1. Had enough of Man Utd and has ambitions to show what he can do.
Get him on loan now

Agree0 Disagree0

No end product at all from what I've seen though.

Agree0 Disagree0

Everybody thought sturridge was absolutely s**t when he was on the fringes at Chelsea and at Man city. Then with regular football he became immense. Obertan hasnt got a sniff of a first team chance at United so who knows. He could prove us all wriong

Jay

Agree0 Disagree0

He's nowt special but SAF mustve seen something so hopefully if its true something may spurr him on.. id rather have him than nowt.. in our position a bigger squad is what we need. regardless of its in depth quality :(

Agree0 Disagree0

I saw sturridge at city as a reserve against toon and he was far from sh 1 te..

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 10:55:42
NU to keep smith as replacment for JB, smith still keen on move to leeds but they won't pays his wage demands

Believable4 Unbelievable27

Smith should go to leeds, he is not gonna get in newcastle team

Agree0 Disagree0

Everyone knows smith is robbing us blind. modern footballer i'm afraid just sees the signs

Agree0 Disagree0

Ask me nicely I'll go wheelbarrow him to ER myself ;) (Leeds obsessive)

Ed what's latest with Tiote is he back? Also Also anything going on in the transfer front?

Believable8 Unbelievable1

{Ed042's Note - Sorry mate been mad busy this morning, Tiote due back today apparently, Pards set for press conference today, Barnetta is a no go, and Lee Ryder has reported Obertan is being looked at, possible loan deal, which I would believe to be true.. other than that Shane Long has reported interest from 4 Prem clubs, one being us... and there is a Sun story on Rob Green being swapped with Forster if you choose to believe their drivel}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 09:37:29
Toon to bid for Robert Green.
Ashley to keep Joey Barton?

Believable9 Unbelievable24

Why would we get another goalie when we have 3 good ones allready.

Agree0 Disagree0

When did green change positions to striker... 3 keepers already fighting over a place.. Don't need a 4th

Agree0 Disagree0

We have three goalkeepers at the moment, but I would not class any of them.

Two will go so Rob Green could be good option.

Agree0 Disagree0

Go on sky sports , paper talk check for yourself

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 08:52:10
I've heard from a Journo friend at the Chronicle that the Tiote visa problem is a smokescreen. The real issue is being kept quiet at SJP. Sorry I have no more but something a bit unusual is going on. SteveToon

Believable5 Unbelievable18

I doubt that anyone at either the Chronicle or Journal know any more than we do on what goes on behind the scenes at St James these days. They roll out the same stories every day, as the club throw them the odd bit of PR every now and then. So would rate this comment in the bobbins section.

Agree0 Disagree0

If Newcastle keep using these "smokescreens" its going to end up as smoggy as Boro...

Agree0 Disagree0

Tiote is back

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 08:49:24
reports to is that we want the swiss guy barnetta for £4m, only if jory leaves, i think we should just sign him anyway, he is a cracker player, can playeither in cm or out in the wing, and im sure as an attacking midfielder aswell

Believable8 Unbelievable6

Better clubs who can afford his wage demands are interested in him

Agree0 Disagree0

He'll cost more than 4m. Or is that just what MA will bid so he can say we tried?

Agree0 Disagree0

Barnett-no

Following reports in Thursday's morning papers that Newcastle would look to complete the signing of Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Tranquilo Barnetta, the player's representative has ridiculed their current offer:

Barry McIntosh told Sky Sports:

"As it stands there is not a hope in hell that he will be going to Newcastle. In fact I am angry at their attempts to do it, and behind my back also.

"They have made an approach, but their offer equates to somewhere in the region of 40,000-a-week - which is just ridiculous.

"Why on earth would Tranquilo move to Newcastle for less money? No offence to Newcastle, he would possibly consider going to Arsenal, Liverpool even Tottenham for less - but not Newcastle.

"They have known all along, what it would take to land Barnetta and what he is earning now, and this sort of offer really does border on ridiculous."

Agree0 Disagree0

It's hardly surprising that we'd offer less than he's on now...I seriously doubt that the intention to sign him is there.

Obertan would now appear the more likely target seeing as he's on the fringes at Man United, though personally I don't rate him.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 08:38:16
Newcastle in talks with barnetta as a replacement for the unwanted JB. Also looking at skejlbredd. Rumours AP wants left bk and forward.

B.G.G

Believable9 Unbelievable7

The same Skeljbred who signed for Hamburg a few weeks ago?

Agree0 Disagree0

Shows how much the OP knew... Unbelievable

Agree0 Disagree0

I hes just signed for hamburg

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont think Skjelbred would have handeled PL anyways

Agree0 Disagree0

Barrenatta not coming says agent

Agree0 Disagree0

I stated we r "looking at skejlbred" didnt say anything about bidding. Hes been scouted by the toon for years just like tiote. Barnetta wont join for less than 55k a week. I think the left back should be M'Bengue and the sriker.. Well i could name many but wats the point?. Management dont listen to us fans..

B.G.G

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 08:21:29
so Joey in further talks with celtic over a free move and to think i was shot down for mentioning this move yesterday (celtic cant afford his wages ect) And nufc made there move for Barnetta on tuesday so hopefully get him in (WelshToon)

Believable6 Unbelievable6

Celtic can't afford his wages. They want NUFC to pay them like they did Bellamy. Not gonna happen. SteveToon

Agree0 Disagree0

Did anyone else think reply from barnetta's agent was quite disrespectful?

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes, very disrespectful. I mean by all means reject a deal that is less than you are currently getting. But don't go shouting and screaming to the press about it..

Agree0 Disagree0

I smell an agent trying to create interest in his client I have not heard the slightest mention of Bartons name from any Celtic official and the stories seem to be coming from south of the border. Celtic do not need another midfielder and frankly wouldnt pay stupid wages for an average player and a ned to go with it.

Wouldnt touch Barton with a bargepole, he will end up at Stoke or West Ham if hes lucky

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 04:52:46

I hope you right but how can you know that the young lads will shine.

Agree0 Disagree0

Things are looking up lads

Agree0 Disagree0

Dreaming again

Agree0 Disagree0

Johnson going nowhere. sturridge and wright phillips wages are too high

Agree0 Disagree0

How can you possibly predict that four youth players are all going to be good this season? was that the case on your football manager season?

Agree0 Disagree0

The ones that played at gateshead did'nt shine and thats against non-league opposition

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 03:15:44
Barton to Arsenal by the look of it, his true fans need to read between the lines though, if you have had him on twitter a while you will know, I used to love the bloke but ive spotted his slip ups, hope you will all see it soon, also funny how he didnt get cpt he started kicking off, he was annoyed he didnt get it it was obvious, hes had one good season with average players he wont keep up in top half coz theres better players than him that play great footie week in week out year after year. I am a toon fan and I can see theres more to all this "blame the managment rubbish" toonlassy
