Newcastle Rumours Archive January 31


02 Mar 2011 20:28:32
I heard that some of the arsenal back room team don't know how to spell their job title


02 Mar 2011 20:18:53
Ed any player newcastle are interested in the most? {Ed001's Note - there is no clear picture emerged just yet of who the main target is, the scouts are out but I have yet to hear of anyone getting watched over and over as of yet. I don't know whether the club is just being clever or if they are just getting initial reports in before narrowing down the options.}


02 Mar 2011 18:32:10
Hi , im a phisio at arsenal n theres talk in the team that your lot bid for bendtner. i understand popular belief hes cocky but he isn't cocky he is sure of what he has, which is talent, i think yous could be back in the summer, and nik is excited about a posible move,


02 Mar 2011 17:53:45
Newcastle looking at J.Arne-Rise!(WelshToon)


02 Mar 2011 16:41:59
If Newcastle sign Gervinho, Legear and 1 more striker I would be happy as having Ben Arfa back will be like having a new signing and we will have Lua Lua back so as long as we keep our star players ie Enrique, Barton and Tiote I will be happy with those incomings.


02 Mar 2011 10:19:29
With jose enrique likely to leave in the summer, could a possible replacement be kieran gibbs? or fabio da silva? adriano to newcastle maybe? after he cancelled his contract last week?


02 Mar 2011 09:16:39
Many other rumours site are still talking about the possibility of adriano moving to the prem to get his life back on track. . spurs and newcastle in the running? ed. who do you thinks favourites to get him if he decides to move to england? {Ed002's Note - I doubt that he will end up in England.}


01 Mar 2011 19:45:16
Ed there are rumours going around that graeme carr has bin told to go and watch stafan kie ling any idea if its true {Ed001's Note - I haven't heard that but I would not think you would be in the running anyway to be honest, there are a hell of a lot of clubs interested in him. He is most likely to be joining Dortmund or Bayern Munchen in the summer.}


01 Mar 2011 18:38:29
Ed have Newcastle contacted Adriano {Ed001's Note - not as far as I know.}


01 Mar 2011 18:04:44
I have heard that Newcastle have made contact with Adriano and Legear? Any Ideas Ed ? {Ed001's Note - ideas about what?}


01 Mar 2011 18:06:56
Newcastle have ther eyes on zigic


01 Mar 2011 15:00:55
Mike ashley was in aspers last night and he told one of te staff members that pardew is going to get full £35 milion in summer!


01 Mar 2011 13:23:57
Bojan from barca has been mentioned to become available would love him (WelshToon)Any Chance Ed?


28 Feb 2011 23:04:07
I remember when keegan was in charge we were interested in bafatembi gomis from st.Etienne . at the time he was being labled the new drogba. Ed, do you think we could get him in the summer?


28 Feb 2011 18:44:21
I doubt it mate i think west brom will but in a dicent bid for vela who agrees ed what u think vela will do? {Ed001's Note - hard to say, depends on how the season ends, I certainly don't see him back at Arsenal next season.}


28 Feb 2011 18:22:52
We are being linked to some pricey players from Sturridge to Scott Parker our ex player who is also well known to Alan Pardew when he was managing West Ham


28 Feb 2011 18:23:07
Just seen on another website that Newcastle are after Adriano after he has cancelled his contract?


28 Feb 2011 18:19:46
Ed out of nufc, arsenal and liverpool whos the most likely to get gervinho, and which club does he want to got to? {Ed002's Note - I don't know where he wants to go, but all clubs have a chance to bid for the player. Liverpool and Arsenal cannot off nailed on first team football - so maybe Newcastle have an edge.}


28 Feb 2011 13:39:32
Ed are Newcastle in talks with Ricky Van Wolfswinkel or Podolski ? {Ed001's Note - no, that would be tapping up mate, they have done no deal with either club nor asked for permission to speak to either player that I know of. There have been talks with Utrecht ongoing since January, but I don't believe they have got that far, not as far as I can find out anyway. I have heard nothing of any contact with Koln over Podolski just yet.}


28 Feb 2011 13:27:47
Ed who are Newcastle looking into as a replacement if Enrique leaves? I hear Taiwo's named mentioned as a free? any ideas ? {Ed001's Note - Wendt is the name I have heard you are looking at.}


28 Feb 2011 12:57:49
Ed Any chance of us getting Lavezzi ? {Ed001's Note - it is unlikely but not impossible.}


28 Feb 2011 09:02:41
Who is this K.Gamerio is a he a good player?Ed thoughts good buy? {Ed001's Note - bit of a shortie, he is 5'5", but he does look a decent player, though his goal record is not inspiring. He would certainly be a huge change from Carroll!}


28 Feb 2011 08:56:13
You think L.Podolski be availble in the summer Ed? {Ed002's Note - Possibly. It depends how Cologne do for the rest of the season.}


27 Feb 2011 22:10:31
Ed what are the chances of us signing Hulk or Cavani ? {Ed001's Note - almost none.}


27 Feb 2011 20:11:40
Ed do u think newcastle are after kevin gameiro and oscar wendt {Ed001's Note - yes.}


27 Feb 2011 18:29:45
Rumours are we have opened preliminary talks with lille to sign gervinho , ed do you think this is true?
the sources are coming out of france (BishToon) {Ed001's Note - you did enquire about his availability in January, it is probably just an extension of those talks as you were told he would be available in the summer.}


27 Feb 2011 11:42:34
Rumours coming out that jose enrque is in talks with ac milan ed any info on this? {Ed002's Note - I have heard nothing about this.}


26 Feb 2011 20:34:42
Ed any players linked with newcastle {Ed001's Note - lots of rumours of players you are having looked at, but very few of them seem to have any substance. If I hear of any with substance I will say.}


26 Feb 2011 11:36:13
I am going on other rumour sites and everybody is saying that we are getting Nicklas Bendtner from Arsenal for £10million. I really hope this isn't true because I think that he is awful. Ed can you see this happening?


26 Feb 2011 09:55:41
Newcastle to sign hulk from porto for 18mil and tarrabt from QPR (if they don't are willing to sell.
Players going the other way will be james perch go to sunderland for a cheap deal worth 5mil! ! ! smith will also leave on a perm to leeds (if they get promoted and if they don't on a loan).


25 Feb 2011 23:44:28
ED do you think that F Contrao will leave Benfica in the Summer and if he does where do you think he will go?
Btw I am not expecting him to sign for Newcastle I am hoping he might go to Liverpool so Enrique doesn't go as I feel that they are the only team that will be serious about Enrique. {Ed001's Note - I am 99% certain he will be on the move in the summer, most likely to Real Madrid.}


25 Feb 2011 23:27:52
Newcastle are scouting french striker kevin gameiro and if jose enrique leavs oscar wendt will be be his replacement


25 Feb 2011 21:53:35
Lovenkrands to sign for Rangers in the summer :-( he will be a big loss


25 Feb 2011 20:55:47
Newcastle have made initial contact with FC Porto, enquiring about the availability Brazilian striker Hulk, a potential replacement for Andy Carroll.
Newcastle are keen to tie up a deal quickly for the summer, before other clubs come in for his signature. A fee of around £17m is being talked of, while contingency targets are FC Utrecht's Ricky Van Wolfswinkel and Ipswich's Connor Wickham.


25 Feb 2011 13:56:19
Newscastle should consider theses players bit pricey but will be worth it in the future.

Fernando Llorente (Atletico Bilboa) £20m
Mario Gomez (Bayern Munich) £25m
Sulejman (Ajax) £8m
Jermaine Lens (AZ Alkamar) £6m
Ibrahim Afellay (Barcelona) £7m
Gervinho (Lille) £10m
Diego Bounanote (River Plate) £6.5m
Djibriel Cisse (Panathiakos) Free
Douglas Costa (Shaktar donestek) £9m
Sotiris Ninis (Panathiakos) £9m
Hulk (FC Porto) £20m


25 Feb 2011 13:05:41
Tiote has singed six and a half year deal!


24 Feb 2011 21:43:01
Ed what are the chances of us signing Victor Obinna and also Djibril Cisse i heard he was leaving Greece? {ed's note - Cisse is quite likely, he wants to return to England, no idea about Obinna though sorry.}


24 Feb 2011 21:18:04
I certain Newcastle will bring in a Championship player that is young.


Wickham(be really hard to bring him in with bigger clubs ready to bid in Summer)
Zaha(again bound to be others interested but think we could get him)
Gradel(I expect him to join providing Leeds don't get promoted)
Rodriguez(spelling)(there is intrest)

What do you think??


24 Feb 2011 20:43:33
I agree don't think Andre Pierre Gignac would join us would be too pricey also think is outside our age limit hence no resale value. I think the suggestion from the main site that Scott Scannel from Swansea could be joining is great up and coming striker winger is a leading goalscorer in the championship and Pardew knows him well from Crystal Palace days

I think you might of just created a player lol I will take it your talking about Scott Sinclair and Sean Scannell


24 Feb 2011 18:07:06

24 Feb 2011 14:46:58
David Jones Wolves available on free and also Victor Obinna currently on loan with West Ham, his Italian club have nt taken up their option on his contract


23 Feb 2011 21:22:09
Ed what's the likelyhood of gignac being available in the summer {ed's note - he is likely to be available for the right price, though I am not so sure Newcastle would be in the running for him.}


23 Feb 2011 19:44:13
Ok thanks ed


23 Feb 2011 19:41:50
Ed you heARD Any rumours about strikers cOMING to toon? {ed's note - read down, I have already said today what I have heard with regards to players being looked at.}


23 Feb 2011 15:22:23
Think NUFC need to sign at least 3 players in the summer imo, looking at who is probably worth keeping the squad looks a bit like this. .

Ameobi Best Ranger
Jonas Tiote Nolan Barton
Arfa Guthrie Gosling Kazenga
Enrique Collo Willo Simpson
Ferguson Kadar s.Taylor Tavernier
Harper Forster Krul

With Carroll gone the obvious gap needed filling in the starting 11 to improve the first team is a striker. would guess that r.taylor, lovenkrants, smith, cambell, routledge would be allowed to leave for whatever the club can get for them to get the wage bill down - smith and cambell especially and then those players replaced with freebies along the lines of elmander/larsson.

Think with sunderlands apparent money woes, trying to nick in and secure a permanent deal for onouha would be the perfect signing our defence needs as he can play anywhere in teh back 4. Also think Gervinho has to be the no1 target as he could play off one of our many target men, out wide with arfa in a 433 or even right side in a 442 if barton had to tuck for injuries and routledge will no doubt be sold.

Would be an excellent summer if we kept our good players and only brought in onouha, elmander, gervinho - what do you think? ?


23 Feb 2011 12:22:08
Ed have toon had talks with gervinho or anyone else about summer tranfers? {ed's note - not talks as such, a couple of players were sounded out, I believe Gervinho, Van Wolfswinkel and Elmander were amongst them. A couple of players, those 3 amongst, are supposed to have suggested they might be interested if Newcastle were in the Prem next season, but that is as far as things have gone.}


23 Feb 2011 11:23:37
Some of players nufc will sign

Gervinho(10-12 million)
Elmander( Free)

What is your thoughts ed? {ed's note - Newcastle are not going to buy all 4 of those.}

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
we know that cause ones a free transfer , plus perotti is valued at 6 million ponds or 10 million euros


23 Feb 2011 12:03:26
Ed any right backs that toon are interested in? {ed's note - none that I am aware of, though that could probably just be overshadowed by the obvious search for a striker.}


23 Feb 2011 07:50:07
Toon to sign Elmander, Cisse, Ireland (full time) and winger. Tomkins from west ham is target to replace Campbell. Smith will be let go. Could need 2 left backs if Enrique leaves, Paul Konchesky or Stephen Warnock to join on cut price deal to either fight for place against Enrique or to replace him. Winger could anyone out of Larsson, nzogbia, Jarvis, Taarabt, Adam Johnson (if city want sell), Legear or Sevilla Argentinian winger who weve already been linked with. Bright future hopefully ahead.


23 Feb 2011 10:36:07
Emilio Izzaguirre lined up as a replacement if Jose Enrique is to leave in the summer. They signed him for under a million in the summer and will be looking at around 5m i have been told.


22 Feb 2011 21:59:34
Some muppet on the Leeds rumours site says Alan Smith to retire at the end of the season, hmmmmm don't believe that but I'm sure you lot would be pleased if he did lol lol


22 Feb 2011 21:51:39
Rumours coming out that Djibril Cisse is looking to cancel his contract at Panathinaikos due to racism directed at him and Newcastle are looking at a bid ed do u recon there is any truth in this?

Wish this was true he might have been a mackem but he has a shoot on site policy and scores goals would be perfect.


22 Feb 2011 21:07:54
Some names that have been linked with us again REMEMBER they are rumours not solid news! !

kranjcar is again being linked with us!

Carlton Cole I'm not happy about this as i could see it happening! hope not!

Barton says ireland has big chance 2 impress at toon- summer signing possibly?

James tomkins 21 yr old hammers defender!

sturridge has been linked with us

Cisse, would take him on a free same age as elmander and will be free at end of season, Ben arfa good friends with him possible and good goals to game who cares if he ex-makem could do a good job!

Enrique doesn't want to leave if we get 40+ points

whickham agian been linked-app leading race?

diego perrotti-*spelling

Taiwo just incase enrique leave app scouts looking at him

and gradel linked with us,

ED do you think these are all possible and have you any solid news on any of the mentioned players coming to NUFC? {ed's note - I think you can forget Sturridge, Perrotti and Kranjcar, but the rest are all possible. You have certainly had West Ham games watched closely, though I wouldn't be surprised if Parker is also being eyed.}


22 Feb 2011 20:49:06
Pardews summer targets are Johann Elmander, Seb Larsson, Darren Prately, Ashley Williams, Silvain Marveaux, James Tomkins,


22 Feb 2011 20:41:47
Newspapers keep linking us with the Zog! Makems please take him for £12m with our best wishes


22 Feb 2011 20:44:40
Seriously Lads,

Calm down! All these "rumours" are far too early. Everyday, people think of another player who COULD sign for us in the Summer. Remember January, the following players were supposedly linked with us but never came:



22 Feb 2011 20:19:47
Some of players nufc will sign

Gervinho(10-12 million)
Elmander( Free)

What is your thoughts ed? {ed's note - Newcastle are not going to buy all 4 of those.}


22 Feb 2011 16:45:48
CROUCH IS NOT BAD but not for us too old high wages loves celeb life in London WAG fiancee. Cisse if free could do a job played with our Ben at Marseille. No one has mentioned Tremolinas a good left back playing for Jean Tiganas team in wine producing area team not doing well


22 Feb 2011 16:05:54
Rumours coming out that Djibril Cisse is looking to cancel his contract at Panathinaikos due to racism directed at him and Newcastle are looking at a bid ed do u recon there is any truth in this?


22 Feb 2011 14:54:52
Ed have toon got interest in miguel and diego perotti
and will at least one of these two be singed in the summer.

{Editor's Note: I have heard nothing at all.}


22 Feb 2011 13:23:37
To the person who is whinging about someone posting a rumour that was on an Iphone app yes it was on there but most rumours come from the papers or other websites but your not making a big deal about that.


22 Feb 2011 09:22:32

21 Feb 2011 22:19:38
Rumours that Newcastle are interested in Sevilla left wing Diego Perotti personally i really hope this is true great player good pace, good with the ball at his feet, can score goals and the main thing that we need he can provide a cross be a good assest for somewhere around 6 mil. Also rumours about Newcastle taking Alister Tangane on a trial hes a 17 year old French striker who has impressed for his club this season but there is interest from other clubs like Everton and Marseille what do you think ed?
- - - - -
Your source. An iPhone app. Well done


21 Feb 2011 14:47:27

Whats happened to all the takeover talk from last week?was this just another makem trying to wind us up.


21 Feb 2011 10:17:48
Ed are newcastle most likely to go for gervinho and does he want to go to toon NUFC 4 LIFE

{Editor's Note: Liverpool have an interest in the player as well. I don't know what the player prefers at this time.}


20 Feb 2011 19:58:43
Ed does Bezema want to go. {ed's note - more that Mourinho doesn't want him.}


20 Feb 2011 18:51:51
Haha 22m for Benzema he won't join toon and wickham will whey up his options in the summer!

ins i believe toon will make:
A.Mcgeady (8m)
M.Bougherra (4m)
V.Weiss (Im hoping 5m)
Gervihno (12m)
J.Elmander (Free)
Z.Gera (Free)



20 Feb 2011 17:14:48
Ed do u mean £15 million on top of the £35million from the Carroll sale? Or £15 million in total? Cheers

{Editor's Note: A different Ed but I would suspect it is either a straight £15M or £15M on top of further sales. It will not be £35M plus £15M.}


20 Feb 2011 15:32:39
Ed have nufc talked with Van Wolfswinkel about possible transfer also Gervinho?. {ed's note - talks have been held with both teams, not sure if it is defo those players that were spoken about.}


20 Feb 2011 15:22:34
Ed have toon got a good chance of getting marveux {ed's note - he is almost certainly joining Liverpool.}


20 Feb 2011 15:19:00
Ed any news on playes {ed's note - nothing definite yet, but, I did read a rumour someone posted about Ashley having set some money aside for the summer. I checked it out and there does seem to be a degree of truth in it, but I was told it was only going to be in the region of 15m. Obviously that might just be until Liverpool pay up the full amount for Carroll.}


20 Feb 2011 00:13:56
10 mill for Carlton Cole, ur havn a laugh, why would anyone pay that much for an old striker who is just a bit better than heskie.


19 Feb 2011 19:18:25
Stephen Ireland will not be fit for selection for another 3-4 weeks which just shows how Newcastle lie to us fans after I read that he would be fit 2 weeks after signing him they done the same with Carroll told us he would be out for 2 weeks and now he is still currently injured for Liverpool.


19 Feb 2011 19:13:00
Get a grip mate

5 million for Connar Whickham your having a laugh and why would Newcastle bid now for him.

Some people really don't have a clue about football.


19 Feb 2011 18:05:28
Just heard that newcastle have had a £5m bid for Connor Wickham accepted by Ipswich and possibility of Benzema coming to the toon for £22m or on a loan deal.


19 Feb 2011 11:56:53
Also there was a 25% sell on clause that Newcastle will get if he is sold on.


19 Feb 2011 11:31:18
Liverpool payed one payment of 30m + vat with 5m + vat to be payed before april 6 end of currant tax year . which bank was it payed into not the branch but the company? just so we know I KNOW THE TRUTH liverpool also payed all agents fees for both clubs what agreat deal for nufc OLD PRO


19 Feb 2011 10:08:07
Mr ashley has already deposited 25 million to newcastle united fc bank account, liverpool have yet to deposit all of the transfer fee of 30million rising to 35. He has done this to provide newcastle with any fees upfront for agent and to prove to clubs the money is there. He hopes this is to further support his word that ALL of the transfer money will remain in the club. Wether it be transfer money or wages to hold onto top players, his main priority is stability and security of our future. We must back him instead of apposing him, mark my words when the debt starts to crumble the top clubs we will be on a strong foot and will advance beyond them, he didn't make billions from nothing being an idiot. Watch this space guys.


18 Feb 2011 17:48:24
Old pro you have any more info?


18 Feb 2011 16:39:47
Ed which big singings are nufc willing to make in the summer, and is McGeady going to leave spartak mosko in the summer? {ed's note - I am not sure who will be bought this early in the season, but I would expect Newcastle to revive talks with McGeady unless he manages to settle in Russia after all.}


18 Feb 2011 16:06:39
Ed do you know if enriqe and tiote want to go?

{editor: I've heard nothing of Tiote but I have heard that Enrique is flattered that Liverpool are linked with him.}


18 Feb 2011 12:24:12
Wish you would all stop worrying abount signings in the summer my inside source who was with ashley on wed night at the company meeting as told me expect big names comming in around abount 5-6 big hitters are comming you heard it ere im no rumour mill this is the truth so just get ready for a good summer in the transfer market


18 Feb 2011 02:09:50
Why has enrique come out to the press to say he would like to go to man utd, liverpool and villa, and calling liverpool and villa huge clubs when they both won't get champions league, barton possibil to hand in trasnfer rquest if we don't sign players!

expect the summer to be great or awful!

if we don't sign players will leave, but if we get the likes of gervinho, whickham etc they will stay

Newcastle Rumours
17 Feb 2011 13:09:48
Old pro is probably right, can see alot of people interested in us when they know were safe, got the stadium and fan base, if we were winning league you could get 100,000 people in stadium. Ashley saved us cos if freddy and that had of continued there probably wouldn't be a newcastle united.

I'm hearing rumours that this Mordashov fellow is looking to purchace 50% of the club and personally i'd love to see him along side Ashley. Like someone said earlier Ashley may not be the best owner in the world but he has got the club 'stable'.
Mordashov is a fan and its in his best interest to get the club to be the best. Leave Ashley to the business side and get Mordashov to extend the heritage!

"MORDASHOV made contact with ashleys people on monday 14 feb first full meeting will take place in london at the start of march no press release yet hold up due to mordashov forming a new holding company to bo used for any take over that might happen this is now a little bit more than a rumour but still a long way to go OLD PRO"

If he aint gonna pour money into the club (He most likely won't with 3, 1 billion to his name) then who is to say that this guy will be our savior? He might just be another businessman trying to do the job that Ashley does.

Very much doubt we spend big bucks on Wickham, he s been talked up too much by the Press as has Oxlade-Chamberlaine we could get Eden Hazard for the same money except none of them will sign for us as we are not Top Five yet !Happy with Bosmans Elmander, Larsson, Marveaux, Ashley Williams, Darren Prately who are free except cost substantial signing on fees and wages so free doesn't mean entirely free!Super scout Graham Carr may also serve up some tasty treats like Tiote hidden in Belgian, Dutch, French, Polish, German or Eastern European leagues or Kia Joorabchian might produce a Tevez or Mascherano from Argentina or Brazil or some other South American state !Nice to dream, reality bites im happy with what we ve already got !

Fed up with Ashley bashing Ive supported the Club for 57 years! Very Happy where we re at. We ve got a team that plays for each other, enjoys it, no major egos, well managed, well coached, well supported home and away. Lots of talent in the team and getting better all the time.Injured returnees will make the team even better . We will secure some fresh players next window hopefully will add to what we ve already got but not disturbing the work ethic, the togetherness.The Makems financial figures in the Daily Papers today do not make good reading !Thats why im thankful for Mike Ashley, he knows how to run a big business and is creating a business model for now and the future.All is needed is a big hike in the commercial revenue


16 Feb 2011 13:21:38
M8 he went to Newcastle university and went to see like all of Newcastles games while he was here so i assume he knows quite a lot about the club there is not much truth in these rumours but i think most people will agree that anyone will be better than Ashley whats your views ed? {ed's note - Ashley needs to be gone as soon as possible, he is destroying the club.}

Elmander, Wickham, Ireland, N'Zogbia all heavily linked for around £25 total. With a possible shock move for old boys Bellamy (if Cardiff don't come up) & Jenas (hopefully not in return for Tiote). Joe Cole looks unlikely with wage demands being a barrier that Ashley is unlikely to remove.

Newcastles Possible ins This Summer!

Gervinho £10m
V.Wiess £5m
M.Bougherra £4m
S.Larrson £0m
C.Wickham £5m
J.Elmander £0m
Z.Gera £0m
S.Ireland (depending on loan performances) £8m

Not all will be bought but i think these are realistic targets but who knows?What u Think Ed? (WelshToon) {ed's note - not so sure about the prices, but I can see you having a chance of signing any of those players. None look out of reach right now.}

Ed is ewerthon still a target for the end of week to get on loan {ed's note - you can't get players in on loan, except emergency ones, but you can sign players who are free agents on short term contracts. As far as I can find out, it appears he has chosen a different destination.}

Newcastle Rumours
11 Feb 2011 20:22:29
Elmander and Erdinc for 9-12m or Van Wolfswinkel
a defencer maybe Bougherra
maybe 2 wingers eg. Larsson Baretta N'Zogbia
Marveaux and Ireland(perement)
that would be
Larsson, Elmander and Marveux free and Bougherra 5-8m and Erdinc or Wolfswinkel 9-12m and Ireland 6-8m
so the cheapest would be about 20m


11 Feb 2011 14:09:45Newcastle will sign Elmander on a free and a winger out of the following Mcgeady, Barnetta or Legear and Newcastle will bring in some younsters and a striker that has a good goalscoring record.

Fat mike won't spend on anyone over 26 so expect slovenian forward etien velikonja only 19 but exeptional roughly 7 or 8 million would work well with Vuckic expect LB Albin Ebondo who i believe is free in summer possibly Arda Turan £8mil and Andre Ayew £11 to sort out the wing issues we have and a cb (Mamadou Sakho)£10mil PSG as back up leaving will certainly be
routledge -QPR £1.5 mil
smith-championship team £1 mil
perch-bristol city £1mil
as well as promotion to actually playing in the 1st team for Ranger Vuckic Lua Lua Ferguson and Kadar + Fraser Forster to become no 1 harps to become a coach

Newcastle Rumours
Get van aanholt now because he will be a worldclass player with more experience



06 Feb 2011 22:17:54
Newcastle Rumours
I believe that the best option for pardew in the summer would be to invest in young players like van wolfswinkel and sturridge but we also need to look at a proven goal scorer like Hulk though there will be many other big clubs in for him so might not be possible. We also need to look at the midfield because tbf joey barton is playing really well on the right but his natural postion is in the middle and chiek tiote is going to be attracting so much interest from many big clubs that i would be suprised if we manage to keep him.

your views ed? {ed's note - hard to say this after putting 4 past Arsenal, but Newcastle definitely needs strikers, first and foremost. That has to be the absolute priority, in my opinion. Worry about replacing Tiote (or a winger to replace Barton if he replaces Tiote) when you sell him, I think.}

Ive been looking at the players out of contract in summer and we could get CB/LB: Christian pander and ST: Juan Albin who we have benn linked with before. Then if we do get the £30m+ in the summer we could invest in young talent like Adam Lallana, Daniel Sturridge, will leave enough to buy fringe players like Stephen Ireland if he gets back to his best id like us to bid for Pav from spurs i think he could be good for us big strong good finish or Carlton Cole from Hammers he is really good at holding the ball up and Ranger could learn alot from these Strikers. .

Rumours in Mexico are circulating that carlos Slim Helu one of the wealthiest men in the world is said to be interested in buying out Mike Ashley at newcastle. Lebanese-Mexican business magnate, philanthropist and the chairman and CEO of Telmex, América Móvil. His extensive holdings in a considerable number of Mexican companies through his conglomerate, Grupo Carso, SA de CV, Carso represented about 18 percent of Slims $65 billion in public holdings. It is understood he has been watching the premiership with great interest since the billionaires started moving in, and would like to flex his financial muscle in the english top division also. Taking a failing club like Newcastle and turning them back to title contenders would be away of showing this. Mike Ashley is a marked man in the north east, and this could maybe be the white night they are looking for.(WelshToon)

{Editor's Note: Chelsea will let their other left back, Ryan Bertrand, be sold but they want to hold on to Patrick Van Aanholt as a long-term replacement for Ashley Cole. Yuri Zhirkov will probably leave in the summer and Van Aanholt will spend the whole season at Satmfornd Bridge. There is very little chance that they will allow the player to leave.}

I would love to see him here playing in front of Enrique in a more advanced role. Either way, I think he's gonna be one of the top attacking full backs in the years to come {ed's note - I think he is an excellent player, it was just that he was placed at right back and he is no right back!}

NUfc will sign Free Strikers/or Young and then buy talent like Gradel, Lallana, and the CB from
1division, also they will sell there players that are worth £10m-£30m like Tiote, Enrique, Colo, and use little of this money for transfers but to clear the club debts then slowly become a young team as they keep bring in to replace the players sold then
selling them once reach that £10m-£30m Price tag. .and will always be a mid table team with this owner. . .

04 Feb 2011 22:29:34
Newcastle Rumours
I just read "Jeremie Aliadiere" wikopedia and to me it is because he has not settled at any club and has not been in a good team that provide chances as a main striker for his whole career and if he does come to NUFC then he will get goals between now and the end of the season as Best is CC quality only and Nile Ranger is still learning the game and one for the future I for one hope we do sign him and i hope he proves all the people out there wrong by winning the fans over with goals. .

I think Falcao is a good shout hes scored 33 in 42 app that is what we need in our team and hes 24 so would be good to develop into our team over a couple of years like enrique and colo took. . 20 goals a season with the right service ie Ben Arfa and Ireland if he can get to his best and he stays. .



04 Feb 2011 14:32:01

People keep mentioning Hulk I rate him so highly but maybe we should look at his strike partner Falcao. What do you think ED? {ed's note - there were a lot of people suggesting him in the summer for various teams so I had a look at him. While not being able to find much, mostly clips rather than full matches, he seems like a goal scorer, a predator. He would need Ben Arfa's creativity to get the best out of him.}

04 Feb 2011 12:53:08

Ewerthon Henrique de Souza - after seeing clips on you tube I think we should have signed him anyway, he looks quality.
We should still also sign Alliadere though as Best is just not good enough and teh more options we have the better. I'd even go so far as trying to get Francis Jeffers who is also out of contract and Tony Capaldi as cover for left back. Short term contracts to teh summer on 10k a week max would do it I reckon.



04 Feb 2011 12:52:56

Ewerthon is a free agent for a reason he s knee has gone and the reason he was released by Palmeiras managed by Luiz -Felipe Scolari (ex Chelsea ) cos he spent most of this and last season in the treatment room. There are much better options in Brazil and Argentine many players are between contracts that's why we ve got Kia Joorabchian isn't it ?

Lets move on with our rumours and wishlists and forget Judas greedy man Carroll. NUFC have only ONE TRUE Geordie HERO, step forward BIG AL, Mr. Shearer turned his back on trophies galore and buckets more money to stick with us through thick and thin. A TRUE GEORDIE that Carroll could never hope to emulate through his own greed, nothing else, just greed. This summer, no Cole, Heskey, Elmander, lets look at the young strikers around europe now, look at Tiote and Ben Arfa, less than 10m for both! What u reckon Ed? {ed's note - to be fair Shearer was never under any pressure to leave the club unlike Carroll. Hard not to respect him for choosing love of his club over trophies, I am sure even the United fans must grudgingly admire him for that.}

I think mike Ashley is not doing a bad job at the moment . 35 million is excellent for a player who has only played 6 months in the top league.

As for Hulk, I think he is more likely to end up at a team in Europe, which I really can't see happening for Newcastle this season. Would be a fantastic signing though and the pair of them would compliment each other well.}

Is it just me or should Newcastle have asked about taking N'gog on loan as part of the Carroll deal he may not be the best player at the minute but the more he plays the better he is going to get and I think he would have been a good addition until the end of the season. He could be injured I'm not sure.

at Newcastle, what are the odds of us signing players like neymar, zezinho, ganso and so on just that I know he has very good contacts in brazil especially {ed's note - I think that was the whole idea of getting him involved.}



02 Feb 2011 17:30:04

I think that we should spend of that money on a good but not especially known striker, such as Fernando Llorante who we could probably buy for about 22 mill. {ed's note - Spurs had a £35m bid rejected for one of the most sought after strikers in the world - Fernando Llorente.}

Hi does anyone know if there is a clause to buy Ireland in the summer or does he go straight back to the villians. . Also i have heard we are after Wickham for 8-10m in the summer not sure if that will be enough also we are after lallana for saints for the same amount good young players I sure well bring in a Premier Class Striker untill Ranger and Wickham get better or sold lol. . Also want to know if there is a clause to bring back Xisco incase we need him i still think he could be a good player if hes given time in the team. .

The economics of football never cease to amaze me, harry Redknapp who nearly became our manager, goes to madrid to watch Diego Forlan with Kevin bond. Forlan is 32, paid £140,000 per week and would cost £15m, and is very happy there.sadly Harry got robbed !But what was the point in going there? Also he supposedly made a£35m bid for Rossi who was on loan with us !Is football going mad, no way is he worth half that !No wonder Ashley is trying to cut costs the economics do not make any sense whatsover.Football expenses make MP expenses look tame by comparison !



02 Feb 2011 14:41:51

"Mike Ashley has said that all of the 35m will get spent in the summer on new player. I don't no why everyone is crapping them selfs"

What both Pardew and Del Boy said was "the money won't be leaving the club". That is not the same as spending it on players. If it paid off debt (to one M.Ashley) the money would not leave the club, but would improve its financial position. The statement also glosses over what will happen to the money from Sky and from season tickets.

Heskey is a no-go, Toon want young hungry players and lets all face reality, we will NOT sign any big names, wages are a stop to that. Why sign Ireland? Another midfielder who happens to be injured too. If Toon survive this season, i hope Ashley has a buyer in summer because if he said that all Carrolls money will be spent, then he is hoping he will be away from club before then with it in his back pocket. ED, heard anything about rumour club was valued at £75m in summer? Doing the rounds now. And by the way, Dalglish has raided Toon again for a loan signing, Carrolls probation officer ha ha. If i didn't laugh, Ashley would destroy my passion for the club! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! {ed's note - I don't know the exact amount, but it was valued at less than £100m when he made it known he was still willing to sell.}



02 Feb 2011 11:05:15

Heskey is to replace carrol in the summer transfer window-another target is possibly crouch.

Expect most of the carroll money to be spent on young exciting talent from around Europe and south America. Ashley business model is to make profit were ever he can ie, bringing in young talent for reasonable fees ie; tiote, and then selling for huge profits if the right offer comes along. The times at Newcastle of signing big name players with huge salaries are gone. Expect 2 established international players to arrive, with maybe 2-3 young exciting south Americans via the connection with "Kia" Joorabchian Ashley has recently made. STICK WITH US BOYS LET'S GET THE TEAM THROUGH TILL THE END OF THE SEASON!

- mate, I think it just has to do with half the people are in shock he left, the other half don't trust ashley.

I'd be thrilled even if we only got to spend half the money come summer, SO LONG AS it is Mr. Graham Carr bringing the players forth and not Pardew. It's been that way since last year and I hope it remains. 9mil on tiote and ben arfa while we were gonna sh*t away 12mil on Crouch and Nzogs. THAT is why i am upset (and not because i think zogs is a bad player, but Dave Whelan, doing a favour for us, and that favour just happens to be a player we sold for half the amount two years ago who didn't want to be here. hmmm.)

Ed do you contacts no who is telling the truth
about what happened yesterday with Carroll did he actually jump ship or was he pushed {ed's note - my info was that Ashley was trying to persuade Carroll to go, he wanted to accept Spurs money but couldn't convince Carroll. When Liverpool came in with such a huge bid he was able to convince the lad it was to the club's benefit that he left. That is my understanding of the situation. I am not sure I like that as a Liverpool fan, it is nice to think players are desperate to move to your club rather than have to be persuaded to join!}

Rumours here in the North West that you tried to gret N' ZOGBIA for £ 10 million but a deal has done with Sunderland in the summer with Colback going the other way on loan

Newcastle bid in the region of 10-12 million but was rejected but do not believe in the slightest about a pre contract deal with Sunderland as Wigan will probably have a bidding war on their hands in summer with Newcastle, Sunderland and plenty other clubs bidding for him. Also why would Wigan want Colback he is terrible even my mate who supports Sunderland even thinks he is league 1 player or bottom of championship at best.

I Know how unlikely this sounds but this may well happen, due to Carroll moving to Liverpool for 35mil, Benzema will move to the magpies, it has been said that Ben Arfa has been persuading the Madrid man to join him. This is not out of Newcastles league, they are a big enough club and would be able to pay his wages, and Benzema is likely to want more 1st team football and looking at Newcastles position in the Premier league he will look to consider offers.
