on local paper in liverpool website, the echo. its say downings going to Newcastle 5mill

Believable4 Unbelievable7

I think it's if bid for ince fails

Agree5 Disagree1

I really hope not. I would prefer obertan. Downing is more awful

Agree4 Disagree4

It says Liverpool are prepared to sell. I smell a Ben Arfa for Downing plus cash deal on the way!

Agree6 Disagree6

I believe he has been offered to Newcastle in a cut price deal of 5mil, not that I think we'd pay that sort of money for a washed up 29 year old. Maybe at 3mil i'd accept him as a decent squad player, better than Obertan and Jonas going forward in my opinion, but would rather see the club pay the extra 3mil and get Tom Ince in for 8mil-ish.

Agree1 Disagree1

Really hope not, he's nearly 30 and where does that leave Ben Arfa, Marveaux etc?

Back to 433 has to be the way to go with Remy

Debs, Colo, M'Biwa, Santon
Sissoko, Cabaye, Anita
Ben Arfa, Cisse, Remy

Agree5 Disagree0

I hope not, he is the same as Jonas.

Agree1 Disagree1

I said this about 2 weeks ago. JK is a big fan of Downing and approached Liverpool about his cost. At the time, there was a belief he could be signed for about £2 million.
Some people on this site met this rumour with derision but the source was fairly reliable.
Downing remains a good player and would be an asset

Agree1 Disagree6

Most of these rumours are Pure speculation
No wonder the test of football think we ate looney

They can see the apathy from Ashley and Jolers job not to spend Ashley's money

Agree0 Disagree2

Downing can't tackle. Don't really rate hm. Would rather give Marvaux a chance.

Agree2 Disagree0

Hasn't LOLpool offered us Downing for the cut price of 5 million. But we haven't enquired about him.

They just want some money back off the Carroll saga xD

Agree1 Disagree0

More like
Debuchy, Colo, Mbiwa, Santon
Sissoko, Cabaye, Tiote
Ben Arfa, Remy, Cisse

Agree1 Disagree0

More like;
debuchy colo santon

cabaye sissoko
ben arfa

remy marveaux

Agree0 Disagree1

Seeing as you all want name a team here goes
debuchy, colo, mbiwa, santon,

cabaye, sissoko, marveaux
ben arfa
gomis, remy

Agree0 Disagree0

Remi signed for 1 season loan all done happy days. Fife Toon

Believable7 Unbelievable4

Just seen its on the nufc official website!

Agree5 Disagree1

Because I'm miserable and pessimistic and I want to spread this to everyone else I'm going to hit the unbelievable button even though this post is true.

Agree7 Disagree3

Strange how 6 months ago you were calling him a person for rejecting you for QPR. But now everyone loves him. Honestly you lot have no pride for the club or for the name. No way would PDC sign someone who rejects them and us mackems wouldn't forgive them easily.

Agree4 Disagree6

3rd post, or you could be a worried and jealous SMB!

Agree5 Disagree4

Remy was offered more money, you will find most of us understood him taking the QPR offer. All is well that ends well.

How long has Sunderland been signing ex Newcastle players & supporters now?

You would not catch us doing that, but then again we are not a 2nd rate club. heh :)

Agree6 Disagree2

SMB, You call us fickle, but this is what would happen with any player, any set of fans. You can't say that PDC wouldn't sign someone like Remy, because you don't know that. Remy's a quality player that we need. Yes I would take players like aubameyang or bony over remy, but they're gone. what's the point of not signing a quality player, just because they chose higher wages 8 months ago, when you see that with most football players. Take Nasri for example, he took higher wages at city but he's still a quality player and if arsenal got him back, they're fans would probably forgive him and forget about him going to city. You can't say we have no pride, we are the in the top 20 most supported clubs in the world. When you had o'neill, you wanted his head for ages, but when you beat city 1-0 you loved him! what's the point on not forgiving someone when you can't do anything about it!

Silly mackems have no logic at all!

Agree6 Disagree2

To the Mackem commenting. Why are you even here? Surely you should be worrying about your little club.

I mean, if we have such a s*** club, why do we keep finishing above you?

Worry about your own club, and stop commenting on the best club in the North East, thanks.

Agree5 Disagree3

Any idea if Newcastle have an option to buy at the end of the loan deal?

Agree4 Disagree1

Seem to remember Danny Graham being one of the most despised men on Wearside until he signed up for the unwashed. He was going to be the new messiah - that lasted long.

Good news on Remy. Let's hope we can get Gomis and maybe a CB through the door. I'd be happy going into the new season with that.

Agree6 Disagree2

Talk of downing coming for 5 mil
Not sure what I think
Apart from has no pace but can put in a cross

Do we need an ex smog and loaned to mackem player, or pay a bit more and go for ince or ask about Sinclair from city

Agree2 Disagree1

Any more news on gomis or dare I say bent as well

Agree1 Disagree2

Nice, a championship player on loan! Lol

Agree4 Disagree3

5th post, is sarcasm not your strong point like?

Agree0 Disagree1

Yes there is an option to buy of an extra 6-7 mil on top of the 2 already paid. Great piece of business in my opinion.

Agree1 Disagree0

We should pay the extra 3 mil for Ince IMO, he looks the business and has no ties with the smoggies or the unwashed.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yh Ino you're being sarcastic, there are a lot of mackems coming on here :P getting jealous!

Agree1 Disagree1

I worry about Ince's end product.

From what I have seen of Ince, I rate Marveaux as a better player.

Agree3 Disagree0

"Strange how 6 months ago you were calling him a person for rejecting you for QPR. But now everyone loves him. Honestly you lot have no pride for the club or for the name. No way would PDC sign someone who rejects them and us mackems wouldn't forgive them easily. "

If PDC would turn down a striker like Remy for signing for another club then he's a moron. And yes, you'd forgive him after his first goal, and why? Because ALL football fans are fickle.

Agree2 Disagree1

I never said anything bad about Remy. Neither did most fans

We all complained about the fact he was in our sights, fee agreed, he even agreed to come and see us, we had his flight ready. Then he goes to QPR!

I think we were all entitle to say
"he is a money grabbing mercenary"!

even wearing black and white the above is still true and I still think the same.

Only difference is now he has to earn his stripes, earn his place and earn the fans trust and support.

Once the fans are totally behind him, he will see how stupid a mistake it was moving for the money, only to be relegated (not that we did much better, please don't start the "things could have been so much different shizz)

And he will see the love toon fans can offer, and the noise they make on match days!

Mr Remy, welcome to the club.
Better 8 months late then not at all xD


Agree1 Disagree1

So it looks like Remy is nearly over the line. Then Bafetembi Gomis later in the week. Also hearing strong rumours we are in for James McCarthy and Thomas Ince. i'd be ecstatic with these four. Wouldn't surprise me if we signed Zoet as well.

Believable4 Unbelievable5

There is a picture on the newcastle rumours page with remy and the joker in st James park holding his new shirt!

Agree3 Disagree0

Ince in the Blackpool team tonight so has been cup tied -probably think its more talk just now about him

Agree1 Disagree1

Would surprise me

Agree2 Disagree0

Who cares if he is cup tied, we won't pass the 4th round of each cup anyway.

Agree3 Disagree0

Man City also interested in Remy. this one's not done and dusted yet lads! Just remember how he acted in January. I will also support NUFC players, no matter what they've done in the past and if he signs, I will back him fully. but it's not over the line yet

Believable1 Unbelievable8

There's a photo of Remy at Benton so assuming he doesn't fail his medical I'd say it's a done deal.

Agree4 Disagree2

Are you a mackem in disguise.

Agree5 Disagree1

Why would Man City be interested in Remy? They can buy ANY striker in the world. Man City apparently interested in Debuccy and a deal could be struck with sinclair and a reduced fee for Mica Richards. Now that would be very interesting. Thoughts lads?

Agree2 Disagree5

. They've just signed Negredo and Jovetic on top of Aguero. Even as a winger they have the likes of Navas.

I don't think they'd be interested in Remy. This is just stupidity.

Agree4 Disagree1

They can have Debuchy though Richards wouldn't be a great replacement imo. Debuchy not done anything to impress me since he joined. Nothing like the player we saw at Euro 2012.

Agree3 Disagree4

Talk sense man and pretending your a fan then making a daft comment like that, they've signed jovetic, negredo, got aguero and dzeko yet there after remy lol mackem in disguise deals done and dusted will be confirmed by tomorrow

Agree2 Disagree1

Cannot believe you can slag Debuchy. He has played half a season in the toughest league in the world. Trying to settle into a new team and environment never mind he landed in a relegation scrap. Give him and the rest of the January signings a break and if you wish to judge them wait until next season and not after 1 game either.

Agree4 Disagree1

Don't understand why we are even going to sign remy last season at qpr he was poor missed chance after chance hence why they went down for me defoe would have been no 1

Agree2 Disagree3

Just giving my thoughts on what I read on tv this morning that's all! I don't know why Man City would be interested in him either. but this is a rumours site. and that was the rumour that I heard! People on here are so quick to get on anyones back if they post something they don't agree with!

Agree2 Disagree0

Remy signed sealed and delivered.

Agree3 Disagree1

Remy sighned on loan

Agree3 Disagree0

Done and dusted - just seen pics with shirt (and Good Ol' Joe!) Doom-mongers and negativos can now eat your words. Come on, apologise to the great man!

Agree2 Disagree3

HE's signed

Agree2 Disagree0

Newcastle signed season-long loan deal

Agree2 Disagree0

Dont think the Mackems will be sh***ing their pants at Remy signing.

Agree7 Disagree3

Just like we are really bricking it over jozy altidor ya smb

Agree3 Disagree3

'Defoe no. 1' -is that Jermaine, won't leave London, too old, spends most of a match on his arse, £100k a week, Defoe?

Agree0 Disagree0

I am the guy who garenteed Remy and Gomis before Tuesday.

Lots of people claimed I was making it up, but Remy is in Newcastle today for medical as reported on the news, Gomis tomorrow.

Both Will be NUFC players before COP Tuesday.


Believable10 Unbelievable7

Never doubted we wouldn't sign these two since declaring our interest, we are a much bigger club than the current clubs these 2 play for.

Toon Toon!

Agree5 Disagree4

What about ince and McCarthy D? do you know anything?

Agree1 Disagree2

Lets just hope we haven't paid his flight this time or god knows who he will sign for this time.

Agree2 Disagree0

Be surprised if gomis signs by tuesday

Agree2 Disagree0

Joe? Is that you? Well done for calling it right but perhaps your time would be better spent sealing deals rather than commenting on rumours boards.

Agree1 Disagree2

Do we really need remy, Gomis and Bent? I think two of those three is enough with remy and Bent prefered. Bent is a mercenary but a proven premier league goal scorer. Remy has the pace and goal scoring threat. Gomis might add an alternative option with his strength, but I would prefer to spend the Gomis money strengthening other areas such as the left side of midfield. Thoughts?

Agree0 Disagree3

Not a chance Gomis will sign before Tuesday. Not saying he won't sign but it won't be on Tuesday. Something not right about that deal.

Agree5 Disagree1

Bigger than Lyon? Get real.

Agree3 Disagree4


I am told it will be tomorrow everything get finalised for Gomis - signature should be on paper before COP Tuesday, and no I'm not Joe, because I actually know things :)

Agree1 Disagree2

I know Wigan want 12 million but no contact between us and Wigan officially

I think McCarthy is backup for Cabaye but not sure how true it is

Ince not heard anything but rumours, Sinclair is more likely

Agree1 Disagree2

Gomis agent is the same agent who blocked our Erdinc deal back in 2011.

Agree0 Disagree0

If we get McCarthy we will sell cabaye to fund McCarthy and ince,
if we sign two forwards or possibally all tree bent, remy and gomis cisse is off to one of the Turkish teams.

Remy having toon medical, expect an announcement tonight

Believable6 Unbelievable5

"boo hoo hoo, we won't sign anyone this summer FACT"

Whats that Remy coming for a medical? What a surprise!

Y'all moaning bout JK and Pardew just need to chill yer boots. It all takes time

Big Dave out

Agree5 Disagree5

I wonder which soppy b hit the unbelievable button to this post.

Probably one of the ones that complained the whole way through the window and now does not want to admit they were wrong.

Agree2 Disagree3

Pardew is still a poor manager and these deals were in progress previous to JFK coming. We have a great squad who are too good for Pardew.

Agree4 Disagree4

Jeez and his merry bunch of bandits coming on here hitting the unbelievable button, how petty lol.

Agree1 Disagree3

Actually it is an unelievable button.
You lot can't even get that right.
Sad state of affairs when Crystal Palace are prime candidates to get Bent.

Agree1 Disagree2

Jeez: no disrespect, mate, but Bent is a player we rather fancy, but only at the right price. Palace are a bit more desperate to consolidate their new EPL status and are possibly willing to pay over the odds. Good luck to 'em. But he hasn't signed yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

Gomis in newcastle on Wednesday to finish deal

Believable7 Unbelievable6

Remy on way now for medical deal should be done by today. On tv now

Agree8 Disagree5

Gomis will be in Benton Tuesday

Agree2 Disagree1

D was right about Remy - how could 5 persons click on 'unelievable'?
