Paul Huntington Sold to Leeds United

8:10 pm, Friday, August 31st, 2007 by Ed Harrison · 365 Comments

Newcastle United central defender Paul Huntington has joined Leeds United for an undisclosed fee. That’s the surprising news this evening.

Paul has not been sent out on loan but has left the club. This is breaking news from the official Leeds United web site so we feel it has to be official.

No confirmation yet on the official Newcastle United site, although we expect all Newcastle’s transfer dealings today to be released in a single communication from the club later tonight.

Paul Huntington – surprisingly sold to Leeds United

19 year-old Carlisle-born Paul Huntington, who turns 20 in September played 11 times for Newcastle United and scored one goal. Paul, who won the Jackie Milburn Trophy in the summer of 2005, an award given to the most promising young players in the north east, made his Newcastle debut last season and scored his only goal for the club against Tottenham Hotspur in January.

Highly-rated Paul started out with Newcastle United’s Academy – he joined up with the first team squad for their EUFA cup matches in 2005 – and has represented England at under-18 level.

This was completely unexpected since Paul seemed to have a future on Tyne-side, and we were assuming he would be sent out on loan this season. Leeds are also struggling at the moment so even the club he has moved to is not in the best of shape. Leeds are  bottom of League One with -6 points.

This seems extremely strange to us and we can only assume that Big Sam didn’t rate young Huntington.

We are also waiting for confirmation from Newcastle on the transfers that may have been completed tonight – no news yet and under 4 hours to go to the transfer deadline.

Comments welcome.

    Strange.

  • 2 Andreas // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:14 PM

    …no confirmation on nufc.co.uk.

  • 3 Chris // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:14 PM

    I thought he might have went on loan, but for an undisclosed fee is quite surprising

  • 4 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:16 PM

    He was not good enough anyway so who cares!!! be honest he was and will never be good enough. When i see a young player i know who has a chance to make it and who does not for example the first time i saw Taylor and N’Zogbia play for newcastle i knew they were good enough. Pattison,Ramage,Edgar are all not good enough and i expect all them to be gone by the start of next season also but are usefull in an in an injury crises however i do see potential in Andy Carroll.

  • 5 Obafan // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:18 PM

    I think this is a good decision by Huntington, because he can get the chance to learn more about the game and gain experience. Just a bit shame that it isn’t Ramage who is sold, cause he can go to every club IMO.
    Pehaps a loan move would have been a better option, so a more experienced Huntington could return to St. James, but BS should have seen that Huntington is just not good enough to play in the EPL and that’s the reason why they sold him IMO.

    What about Beye; has he signed yet, cause the official site hasn’t confirmed it at the moment, but I’ve seen a story (via Newsnow) that he signed for +/- £2.7m? Anybody news on this?

  • 6 Alex // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:28 PM

    The lad should have gone out on loan not sold.He was rushed into the first team because of injuries, at a time when we had lost are way.Roeder expected to much to soon from an inexperienced youngster.

  • 7 dragoner // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:29 PM

    Shaun Dean ur no scout, no one takes you seriously, shut up lol

  • 8 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:31 PM

    When is Beye going to SIGN!!!!!! i wish/hope we go in for Diop.

  • 9 James // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:32 PM

    he is a good prospect for the future hopefully we havent sold him and he is just getting experince with leeds.

  • 10 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:33 PM

    dragoner if you seriosly thought Huntington had potential to be a premiership caliber player you no nothing about football in my opinion.

  • 11 dragoner // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:34 PM

    like i said, shut up, your no scout, ur NOBODY lol

  • 12 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:34 PM

    Huntington is shite always has been always will be

  • 13 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:35 PM

    Good riddance to to shite players. BIG SAM knows talent and obviously Huntington had none LOL………..and thats a fact.

  • 14 Ed Harrison // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:36 PM

    I’m shocked we let him go so young – why not a season loan and see how he developed?

  • 15 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:37 PM

    dragoner im a nobody…………………..so ur point is? Who r u? i am not allowed to have an opinion?

  • 16 ChrisL // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:37 PM

    I would hope that some kind of pre-agreed buy back price has been agreed, should he go on to be a success.

  • 17 DC // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:38 PM

    I think its best for both the club and the player.

    He wasnt going to get a game for the first team at all this season because of the strength of our squad this season compared to last and i didnt really rate him when he played.

    Good luck to him!

  • 18 dragoner // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:38 PM

    i am someone who is NOT pretending to be a scout

  • 19 Zebra // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:40 PM

    Leeds fan here, but been to SJP many times to support your lot and big fan of your club. Hope PH does well for us obviously but feels a bit odd to be gettinga Toon player – normally the other way round! Good luck this season

  • 20 Mick Gray // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:40 PM

    Hmm……we might just regret this one in years to come.

    I was on the 7am train from Newcastle to London today – and Sam got on at Durham and got off at Kings Cross. Wonder where he was going?

  • 21 Edd Case // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:42 PM

    Shaun and Dragoner – keep it on topic lads.

    I think it’s an odd deal too, but it’s happened, so lets move on and hope we have some official transfer news soon.

  • 22 RAVATOONIAC // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:42 PM

    u can see in his game he’s got a bit of arogance which i like from a youngster when he played last year he wasn’t afraid to play his own game or of any of the big name players he came up against, he’s got bags of potential, i wish him well if he has gone for good we may regret leaving him go one day as i believe with the right coaching he could be a cracking player.

  • 23 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:42 PM

    Im not PRETENDING to be a scout i was simply judging a players ability from what i have saw of him from my own personal opinion and that was that he was not good enough to play Premier Leauge football although he was young and still could of improved i still dont think he would of progressed into a player good enough to play for Newcastle United HENCE why he is now playing Leauge 1 football.

  • 24 dragoner // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:42 PM

    Paul Huntington had good NATURAL ability, he was a brave tackler, Tall, had good speed, and was relatively strong for a young defender… People on here judging him by his premiership appearances, lets not forget this is a guy who was thrown in at the deep end due to our serious injury problems, with the right coach and experience he could have and probably will develope into a decent defender…ramage or edgar should have gone instead

  • 25 gordon // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:43 PM

    All this rubbish spouted by mr roeder about how good the academy is ,is falling down like a lead balloon,huntingdon was just another average player.

  • 26 Robert H // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:44 PM

    Shaun Dean. Obviously your outlook on players and football is very bleak.How do you know Paul wont peak in 5 or 6 years? Hes still young and his stats show he has potential.Maybe its a case of spitting your dummy out because he hasnt been kept by Newcastle.

  • 27 dragoner // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:45 PM

    shaun dean that is fair enough, its just that your first few messages painteda very ‘smart ass’ picture of yourself, you are right it is your opinion, and i agree with you concerning pattison, edgar and ramage

  • 28 Robert H // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:46 PM

    Oh and besides Shaun you call him shite!!! SO what do you actually make of your striker partnership Smith and Viduka who actually played a big part in helping leeds get relegated.Viduka likes the pies too much…And you call Huntington shite!!!

  • 29 Alex // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:49 PM

    The lad never had a chance to prove himself properly .A youngster breaking into the first team needs class defenders next to him to guide him.He had the likes of Bramble and Moore.The lad was playing next to crap defenders and often out of position.

  • 30 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:50 PM

    Robert H. Some how i very much doubt that in 5 – 6 six years i will eat humble pie. My knowledge on players is far superior to yours. If you want to see some good young prospects then take a look at Liverpools or Arsenals resevers/youth teams and yes i know they are mostly foreigners however if not theres then look at what Spurs have. Our youth Academy players over the years have not been good enough.

  • 31 Robert H // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:51 PM

    I think he will be a good assett to Leeds.I dont know anything about him but ive just looked on a Newcastle forum site and most of the people on their were surprised that hes been sold rather than been sent out on loan.

  • 32 AlexW // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:52 PM

    its been confirmed in nufc website, so so long paul good luck m8

  • 33 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:53 PM

    Robert H. When and i mean WHEN!!!!! did i ever have a strike partenership of Smith and Viduka that is just down right stupid i have never stated such a thing. You have probably mistaken me for another shaun on this site if not then please explain.

  • 34 Mick Gray // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:55 PM

    At the end of the day, Allardyce and Pearson are both experienced ex-defenders – and have made the decision, we have to back their judgement – and lets not forget the defenders who have come/are coming will drastically reduce Paul’s chances. Good luck and thanks mate!

  • 35 dragoner // Aug 31, 2007 at 8:56 PM

    Robert H are you trying to say that alan smith and viduka aren’t top class strikers? that would be ridiculous and you know it.

    i know first hand that Arsenal probably have the best youngsters as i live in london and my girlfriend is an avid AFC supporter, Gavin hoyte is sick and better than Justin, along with Traore, Merida, Bendtner, Vela, Gibbs(or something), and walcott all being gauranteed stars

  • 36 Robert H // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:00 PM

    Shaun,How can you say that your knowledge on players is far more superior to mine. You dont know me.Im not here to pick an argument,I was just surprised that you really had something bad to say about him when he clearly still has time to peak and maybe be a good player.Newcastle have tightened up their defence this season and its a pity that he hasnt been sent out on loan rather than sold,but theres obviously reasons for that but to say that he was “shite and good riddance” is a bit much.

  • 37 Graham // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:01 PM

    Shaun Dean – Exactly what do get off on? Maybe Paul Huntingdon isnt good enough for NUFC or indeed the premier league, but what gives you the experience to say shite and always will be when he’s never played consistently at senior level? I truly hope that the kid excells at leeds, moves on to a higher placed club and plays a belter agains us in either league or cup competitions inthe future just so you the garbage you have spouted tonight can choke your vile and negative mind.

    I am so pleased that people like you are the minority of mainly deccent and civil members of our community.

    May i ask you this – were you a fan of kevin keegan? i will keep an eye out for your response…

  • 38 Robert H // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:04 PM

    All im saying is Viduka is past it.Smith still has a few years but Viduka is fat,slow and lazy and wont run for the ball.He likes the ball to come to him.Watch him this season and you will see.His glory days are over and if Newcastle are pushing for Europe then im sure there mustve been a better option than him

  • 39 Nathan // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:06 PM

    Absolutely gutted about this

    he looked like he was going to mature into a really good player

    WE NEED YOUTH at the club

  • 40 dragoner // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:06 PM

    lets remember that we got him for free, i wouldnt say he is passed it, he still holds valuable qualities like the ability to hold the ball like an attacking midfielder, clinical finishing, and unselfish play….he is also a big name and APPARENTLY a big character

  • 41 Murvar // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:07 PM

    I don’t come on here to read inane bickering between correspondents, so please stop indulging yourselves and leave your opinions without unnecessary insults to players or other writers. Huntington is a young player who wouldn’t have been with a Premier League side without a lot of experienced eyes seeing potential in him. He was often played out of position and didn’t have a chance to shine. He could have made it in another era/under another regime maybe. But I can only imagine that BSA had concluded that there was something in his fitness/medical make up (revealed by those heart monitors) that suggested he wouldn’t last the course or wasn’t prepared to work hard enough. Just a thought.

  • 42 Robert H // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:10 PM

    Well maybe Sam will bring the best out of him,who knows.He was a big scorer but age has crept up on him and has slowed down but for a freebee than fair play.The only reason why im bringing Viduka up is because im comparing him to huntington whos 19 and part of your youth and hes been labeled shite!! Cant understand it myself.

  • 43 Rich // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:11 PM

    Robert H…. i dont know if you noticed but we didnt sign Viduka for his pace we signed him for his ability to hold up the ball and to score goals like he did against the smoggies.

    i think Viduka was a great signing for us and so does Big Sam whos opinion is obviously the most important and educated one.

    Anyway, you reckon Huntington might peak in 4-5 years, and you say Viduka and Smith are rubbish but Big Sam is the one with all the experience and knowledge on this and he would obviously disagree with you.

    or are you stupid enough to say you know better than Big Sam?

  • 44 Graham // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:12 PM

    Robert H – was Shearer not past it and waiting for the ball to come to him in his last 2 years? give viduka the ball and he has far more skill to get a shot in at goal than shearer ever had…

  • 45 Tripp // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:12 PM

    This is really a reflection of where the EPL is going, not necessarily PH. The amount of money being thrown around and the talent coming in is increasing rapidly. My impression of PH is that he’s ability isn’t going to keep pace with the rate of change of the league. It’s good for NUFC to let ‘em go now and it’s good from him to get to somewhere where he can make more consistent contributions. Too bad it’s Leeds. If anything in this world is shite, it’s Leeds United.

  • 46 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:13 PM

    Robert H. My knowledge is superior to yours (only jokin i simply said it to set you off) yes he still could have developed into a good player but i simply did not ever think he would from my time watching him play for the reserves at kingston park and his games in the first team in which fair enough he was played out of position and when i say he is shite (in my opinion) and good riddance i acctually mean it also however thats not to say i dont wish him luck in the future and its not to say that he could prove me wrong but some how i very much doubt he will.

    Graham. From what i have read you seem like you are going to cry, your insult was pethetic…is that the best you got LOL and yes i am a KK fan.

  • 47 dragoner // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:14 PM

    Robert H – was Shearer not past it and waiting for the ball to come to him in his last 2 years? give viduka the ball and he has far more skill to get a shot in at goal than shearer ever had

    do you know what supporters you are talking to?…did you jus critisize Alan Shearer :o

  • 48 dragoner // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:16 PM

    thta msg was to Graham by the way

  • 49 Graham // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:18 PM

    so you are a Keegan fan? may i quote yourself?

    “Our youth Academy players over the years have not been good enough.”

    Was it not Sir Kevin of Keegan who got rid of the reserve team and any hope of a youth academy during his time at NUFC?

    As for crying – no – i just feel pity for people such as yourself

  • 50 Graham // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:24 PM

    Dragoner – yes i know. Yes sheare was a fantastic footballer in his day – yes i am a mad newcastle supporter (got home and away shirts from 1982 onwards) but i am honest enough to say what i feel.

    Shearer has legend status in newcastle and thats fine – but he was knackered in his final year at nufc – maybe he was playing in a poor team and he did not have a possitive impact on the field or indeed in the dressing room.

    I could go on about this for ages but will propb get slated so will stop here…

  • 51 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:25 PM

    Graham may GOD have mercy on your soul for christ sakes get a life mate dont take it so seriously. Well let me rephase what i stated earlier i was/am a fan of KK as manager of Newcastle United and what he accomplished with us however i am not a fan of his decision to get rid of the academy which he probably did when i was 4 years old or if he done it at the end of his maergerial career 8 years old im so very sorry i did not take much notice or interest of KK getting rid of the youth acadmy when i was 4-8 years of age.

  • 52 mac // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:26 PM

    Tick Tock Tick Tock Ok i’ll admit i’m startin to get worried now. I hope Beye has signed and we haven’t stumbled upon any last minute obsticles. Come on Sam where’s the announcement

  • 53 Robert H // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:26 PM

    Im not saying I know better than Big sam at all but a lot of the Newcastle fans think it was a big mistake letting Paul go.look on your forum website if you dont believe me then look on the Leeds forums on opinions of Viduka.Seems to me that Paul may be a bigger loss than what you think

  • 54 Lenny NUFC // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:29 PM

    I rated Paul H and A few more reserve games and a couple of first team appearences wouldve helped him.Hope Sam is getting transfers in.Not long left.

  • 55 Graham // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:34 PM

    So what exactly did KK accomplish as manager? 2nd place and fantastic football… not really an achievement is it – being the first loser in the pack.

    Anyway if you were just 4 or so its probably time you turned your computer off now and took your calpol in time for bed

    Pompey just signed Papa Bouba Diop.

  • 58 apan // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:38 PM

    well goodluck to him, i hope that we put a buy back clause so that if his improving and becomes some what a good lad we can buy him back or perhaps if theres non, add a percentage of sale for our profit lol

    dont worry we still have EDGAR!

  • 59 Rich // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:39 PM

    i have full faith in Big Sam, selling Paul Huntington is a wise move in my opinion because it was a decision made by the man who seems to be able to work magic.

    from wahat ive seen i dont think Paul has what it takes to cut it in the premier league, ill be suprised if you see him back here.

  • 60 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:44 PM

    Graham i am 18 years old, have you got a problem with my age? do you acctually think your funny? I suppose your more of a fan of Daglish and Guillt? Speaking of age how old are you? Im guessing your well past your prime and probs have a beer belly i would like to say more but the things i would usually say are not appropriate. Do you think simply for the fact that i am 18 years old i have a limited knowledge of football are something?

  • 61 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:46 PM

    Rich. I agree

  • 62 Obafan // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:49 PM

    Think it is a clever move by BS to sell Paul, he also is honnest to the lad. Seems by selling him that BS doens’t see him as a EPL defender otherwise he would have loaned him out. He sees potential in Caroll so he loans out, not the case for Huntigton though. Best of luck to Paul.

    What is the situation on Beye and Faye? I’m waiting hours to see the confirmation of at least 1 of the 2 who have signed, but nothing yet? Anybody news on this topic?

  • 63 Darren // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:49 PM

    I’d rate Huntington ahead of Ramage & Edgar, when he played CB he looked a good prospect but he was played out of position most of the time. And all these people on here saying he was no good are the same people who are shouting each week to see if the Toon match is on the internet. Don’t make assumptions on 10 minutes of MOTD highlights or a dodgy stuttering stream!

  • 64 the real zebra // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:51 PM

    the reason I come on to this website is because there is little biccering like other forums and the content is good. Dont spoil this fans. Stick together, I am disappointed about hintington, i hope edgar does not go the same way.

  • 65 Darren // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:53 PM

    Mr Bean – “Do you think simply for the fact that i am 18 years old i have a limited knowledge of football are something?”

    OF COURSE YOU DO!

    You are a child of the all seater era for a start so you know eff all about football, you maybe up to date on corporate soccer as it has been for the last 12-15 years but that is about it.

  • 66 Obafan // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:54 PM

    Shaun and Graham come on guys stop this stupid discusions. We all are fans of Newcatle and all have our own ideas and favourites. Everybody has his own idea about coaches and players even if they are fans of the same team, that is normal, that is why this blog is fantastic because you can make statements and give your opinion about NUFC and listen to the ideas of others. But don’t attack eachother and don’t start about ages please, cause that doens’t matter at all.

  • 67 Lenny NUFC // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:54 PM

    Darren i disagree for one i dont watch match of the day an two i went to newcastle reserve team matches fairly often last season.

  • 69 Bill F // Aug 31, 2007 at 9:56 PM

    ToonKing thank god for Pompey, I’d have rather kept PH than sign him. As for PH you just never know how a player will develope, at one stage John Terry never looked good enough for the EPL. Talent is often hard work, luck and attitude. We have had players who looked as if they would be world beaters and went nowhere, anyone remember Suddick? Theres nowt wrong in stating an opinion, its what make the site interesting.

  • 70 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:00 PM

    Darren. Fair enough thats not to say that i dont know what im taking about which is what Graham seemed to say. I am in my opinion a very knowlegable fan on Modern day football ……..is that better for you Darren.

  • 71 Darren // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:00 PM

    This blog is turning into a BSA arse licking session.

    Yes I rate him as a manager and I’ll back him all the way but some comments on here are getting stupid, its like school playtime.

    People are allowed opinions that may differ with Big Sam, however if that is mentioned people on here are up in arms. If BSA resigned Marcelinho 90% of you would be saying “he’s the man to get his potential out”!

  • 72 TOON1 // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:01 PM

    Fairly surprised about hunti ,thought it would have been a loan deal,but come on guys ,you really think big sam would let a defender go if he hadnt got 1or 2 signed ,like ed says i think it will just be 1 anouncement toward the end of the night .Come on sam ,faye beye and maybe a surprise !!!!!

  • 73 Ed Harrison // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:01 PM

    Lads – come on – please cut out the bickering – let’s all be civil to each other.
    :D

  • 74 Shearer 4 pm // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:02 PM

    paul huntington was never shite you can’t play in the prem for a huge club and be shite some of you/ most of you may disagree but the fact is you can’t walk into a prem team you have to earn it and all of the players have earned it someway or another mabye they havn’t adapted or have had injurys but none havve been crap, so will you 2 shut up and talk about relevent things please

  • 75 Darren // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:03 PM

    Shaun – forget about it – just getting stressed waiting for these deals to be sorted, Faye I’m not too fussed about but we need Beye

  • 76 Shearer 4 pm // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:03 PM

    like how long it will be before beye and faye signs

  • 77 Darren // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:04 PM

    Whats the bets we call back Solano at the last minute tonight

  • 78 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:07 PM

    Well Darren i also agree we NEED Beye and im also not fussed on Faye so at least we agree on something LOL

  • 79 TINT // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:13 PM

    i cant belive he has gone 2 leeds he was a great player 4 his age and he could have become a great defender in years 2 come,anyway i would love Beye 2 join but i ent seen Faye play alot so i dont no about him and who was on da plane??? and y ent they signed yet!!!

  • 80 Lenny NUFC // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:16 PM

    “Shearer 4pm” In response to your comment,Paul Huntington HAS to be shite though because Shaun Dean said so and according to him he knows lots about football and spotting youth.
    No seriously its good to get a more adult response than some of the responses weve been getting from someone im not gonna mention SHAUN!!!
    Oh well, hope Paul Huntington does well for himself and will probably get guarenteed first games.

    When I was 18 I was a Leazes ender in the 1970s. A lot has happened at United over the years since then and I hope I have gained knowledge and experience in that time – don’t think you know it all at 18 mate – you don’t ;O)

  • 85 ashamed2beatoonfan // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:25 PM

    I’m ashamed to be a Newcastle fan reading some of these comments tonight. Shaun Dean has to be the worst, Paul Huntington wasn’t good enough so ‘who cares’! Paul was a young lad not much older than yourself Shaun, who hoped to be a premiership footballer and who gave it everything he had for Newcastle. The fact he didn’t quite make it takes nothing away from the lad. If that is what we’re going to say about lads who give their all and don’t quite make it then we don’t deserve to have them come to the toon in the first place. Better that they go to a team with fans who care. So Shaun, how good are you at what you do? Are you a premiership material? Are you a top notch plumber, brickie, taxi driver, should we care???
    Before I finish, anyone who can criticise Kevin Keegan after all he did for the club! You obviously aren’t old enough to remember life before he arrived. Who cares about the academy? He did what he thought was right in taking Newcastle from nowhere to within a whisker of winning the premiership. Did he do things that we might have done differently, certainly! Does he deserve you lot, certainly not!!

  • 86 Mick Gray // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:26 PM

    Like I said in an earlier post – Sam got on the London train at Durham this morning – got off at Kings Cross. Didnt have time to follow him as I had a meeting to go to!

  • 87 Darren // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:27 PM

    How the Faye deal is taking so long is beyond me – unless it is Bolton playing hardball. 90 MINS TO GO – STAY POSITIVE!!!!!!!!!

  • 88 Jeff D // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:31 PM

    I hope that he has another signing ongoing,and will anounce them all in one go.

  • 89 mac // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:35 PM

    O MY GOD. Come on we need some news,any news will do even to tell us they haven’t signed so i can go to bed.

  • 90 Ed Harrison // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:35 PM

    We think it may be due to work permits.
    Hey – maybe they’ve done the deals and scheduled the communication for 11:55pm and they’re off to the pub :D

    Last year the official site was first with the super signings – Sibi (who done okay actually) and Bernard. I ran out of beer I was so depressed. This year I vowed to go out but when news of Beye & Feye wasn’t through by 8pm I just got a crate in. Got two tellys on the go – one skysportsnews, one Fifa 2007 (fiver a man – winner takes all) and the laptop. Still time for clubbing if they push it through in the next 30 mins!

  • 107 Ed Harrison // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:58 PM

    Look on the positive side – only maximum of 60 minutes to go …

  • 108 Toon Chicken // Aug 31, 2007 at 10:59 PM

    Everyone chill out. Sammy Lee said about 3 days ago that he expected Faye to sign for us, and we already know he’s had a medical. Yes, he is waiting for a work permit, but that doesn’t stop him signing on the dotted line.
    Marseilles President said Beye would be joining us , and the man himself said he’s accepted terms for a 4 year contract.
    Basically, everyone at SJP has gone home to bed now, just because we don’t hold a press conference doesn’t mean they haven’t signed. Enrique signed a couple of days before he was unveiled to the fans and media.
    Go to bed, wake up in the morning, rejoice in our 2 new excellent signings and wish for 3 well-earned points from Bumble and Co.

  • 111 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 11:00 PM

    Mick Gray i dont think i know it all so what are you on about? i simply have stated my opinion so what difference does age make what if i said i was 40 years old would you reply differently i think you would.

    Lenny NUFC why are you so bothered about one persons opinion on Huntington, i do think i know alot about football so have you got a problem with that? and regarding spotting youth i think its quite easy to spot if a player is going to make it once you have seem them play quite often i based my assumptions on what i saw and the FACT is Sam allerdyce also thought huntington was not good enough and the fact he will be playing leauge 1 football says it all. If you want more Adult responses then stop responding to a ‘child’ in fact actually please tell me how i have been childish as all i have said is that i dont rate huntington by saying he is shite. If i did not metion my age you would not have even used it as a way of argueing/debating with me so why do you hold it against me.

  • 126 Darren // Aug 31, 2007 at 11:15 PM

    Right if you think about these two deals, a couple of points…

    After the smog game BSA was bemoaning getting injuries to his weakest position eg-defence. We sold Huntington at what… 7pm, surely he wouldn’t have been sacrificed if we didn’t have at least one deal sorted.

    Faye & Beye – yes they are both Senegalese but Beye has been playing in France for a while, has he a EU passport or do we definately need a work permit.? Same goes for Faye too, anybody know?

  • 127 Shaun Dean // Aug 31, 2007 at 11:15 PM

  • 129 Ed Harrison // Aug 31, 2007 at 11:17 PM

    Darren – excellent point – that’s what my son and I just discussed – he wouldn’t have let Paul go if he didn’t have at least one of Faye or Beye already tied up.

  • 136 Rich // Aug 31, 2007 at 11:19 PM

    notice how sky sports have reporters almost everywhere apart from us.

    They the go into transfer analysis about possible targets for teams and then say ‘Newcastle are awaiting to sign a couple of players’ then move on to West Ham or Fulham for a 10 minute analysis on their teams.

    either we are too good at keeping a lid on things or they dont like us?

  • 140 Andy H // Aug 31, 2007 at 11:20 PM

    Really sad to see Huntington go. I think he had potential and could have shown it if he’d got a chance at centre back. Surely though this means that the two signings will definitely go through because we cannot afford to weaken the squad any more. But even if we do get these two in Nobby will go and so we won’t have increased the numbers like we needed to desperately. We are replacing a hungry and driven youngster and a Newcastle legend (and most creative player) with two africans who have come for the money and will be away at the African nations leaving us in the shit for a couple ofmonths.

    Can’t see the sense in it myself and I always hate to see players leave – well apart from Bramble and Luque.

    Only 40 mins left – Hurry UP! I can’t take it.

  • 141 dragoner // Aug 31, 2007 at 11:22 PM

  • 250 Sandman // Aug 31, 2007 at 11:58 PM

    “So if we go to bed at 12.15 with nowt we don’t give up hope?”

    Nope. They could have registered the players a week ago, and not have to tell us sweet f-all.

    They could also just be waiting until the deadline passes by a few minutes. Like with the Sibi deal.

    As for Faye’s work permit, he can still be signed and registered, and we can get the WP finalised tomorrow. It’s not something that is required to be finalised within the transfer window.

    It’s an influence outside of the football world, and it would break many EU Employment laws I imagine. :D

  • 251 Edd Case // Aug 31, 2007 at 11:58 PM

    Toon Chicken, soz man, the excitement got to me.
    Then sky sports brought me back to reality.

    Looks like only Faye in….

  • 279 Sandman // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:07 AM

    EDD CASE

    I believe Spain and Italy have transfer windows 1 day out of sync with ours. Riquelme had all but dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s on his contact with Athletico last time I looked.

  • 280 Hammy // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:07 AM

    Ramage crocked…Carr well eh….Solano gone……Do we have some shit hot RB I don’t know about????

  • 281 steve // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:08 AM

    Dont worry – my sister just rang in – Beye apparently just popped into her chip shop with Chris Mort in celebratory mood apparently. They had a pickled egg each.

  • 282 Sandman // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:08 AM

    CALM DOWN PEOPLE!

    Just because it hasn’t been announced yet, doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened.

  • 287 Edd Case // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:09 AM

    Sandman, thats like saying to the donkey, “there is a carrott on the end of the stick, you just can’t see it”

    We all need to see it to believe it.

    im going to call sam.

  • 289 Dave G // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:10 AM

  • 290 Ashton // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:10 AM

    Booooooooooooo
    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • 291 Hammy // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:10 AM

    Hmmmmnnnnn Geremi will do when Barton’s fit, that will be a few weeks yet….

  • 292 Darren // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:11 AM

    Five cans left – if no news on Beye by they are gone I’m going to the all night garage for munchies

  • 293 ToonKing // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:11 AM

    Agree with Shaun, It’ll be Geremi at RB, it was Big Sam’s evil dastardly plan all along. ;)

  • 294 Toon Chicken // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:11 AM

    this from the bbc website…

    2350: Last 10 minutes and four deals still to be confirmed involving Nolberto Solano, Steven Naismith, Habib Beye and Abdoulaye Faye. Looks unlikely there will be one from left field.

  • 295 steve // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:11 AM

    No – chip shop story is confirmed – He is a vegetarian – couldnt be him with a kebab

  • 296 AlexW // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:11 AM

    a pickled egg ey steve, thank god for that

  • 297 Hammy // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:12 AM

    evil dick…I just did, it’s engaged.

  • 298 Toon Chicken // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:12 AM

    2358: It looks like we’re set for added time, as although the clubs might be sorting out the odds and sods of any last minute negotiations these deals are not going to be announced before midnight. Andy’s cat better go and find a hiding place.

  • 299 Andy H // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:12 AM

    This is shit. At least last year we got Sibierski.

  • 300 Mick Gray // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:12 AM

    Yep Hammy – S Taylor looks like he might be it mate……..

  • 301 ToonKing // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:12 AM

    Bollox

  • 302 Sandman // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:13 AM

    EDD CASE

    True. I firmly believe Faye and Beye were wrapped up hours ago, possibly even yesterday. To get to the medical stage a day ago, possibly 2 days, means we’ve agreed a fee and payment package with the clubs And we also know that Faye will be getting £40K and Beye has already said he’s accepted the deal offered to him.

    That leaves registering the player, which means the forms have to have been SENT to the FA before midnight.

  • 303 maggpie // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:13 AM

    Nobby is a legend but slightly tainted as if he loved the Toon he could have sorted his personal stuff and honoured his contract.

  • 304 Obafan // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:14 AM

    I can’ t follow anymore;

    1. Where have you read that only Faye signed?
    2. If he signed, I just can’t believe that it took that long just before midnight to be a done deal.
    3. Beye himself said he would join Newcastle and also the chairman of l’OM said it. His interview was a goodbye to l’OM.
    4. nufc.co.uk doens’t mention anything; should they just wait till tomorrow to let us know their deals.

    What do you think?

  • 305 Dave G // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:14 AM

    That’s all we need, a vegetable playing for the toon – Carr’s bad enough

  • 306 Edd Case // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:15 AM

    Right, I’ve had enough, I’m ganin kip.

    Lads, it’s been a hoot tonight on here. Respect to you all.

    Hopefully, when I get out of my pit in the morning, there’ll be confirmation of Beye and Faye all over the net – and then we’ll thump Wigan 4-0 – Howay the Toon!

    bollox, i’ve been waiting for a third cause i thought Faye and Beye were done and dusted and they’d just announce all 3 together…….Bollox…didn’t we give Carr to anyone????

  • 312 Rich // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:17 AM

    Sky Sports news have verbally said the Faye deal, but they have touched on it twice saying they have a correspondant at the toon and then they have completely ignored it for the past 10-15 minutes.Im hoping this means that they know the beye deal will be confirmed too.or they are twats who dont like us.

    its a possibility that NUfc.co.uk webmasters have gone to bed and nothing will be announced until tommorow morning?

  • 313 Dylan // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:18 AM

    I hope we have signed them, i belive we must have coz we wudnt hav let nobby go

  • 314 steve // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:19 AM

    Marseille Skipper Completes Toon Move

    MARSEILLE defender Habib Beye has completed his switch to Newcastle United.

    The 29-year-old Senegal star has signed a three-year deal with the Magpies.

    Beye, who can operate as a right-back or centre-back, was skipper of the French club having joined from Strasbourg in 2003.

    He featured in both legs of Marseille’s UEFA Cup semi-final victory over United in 2004 but was on the losing side in the final against Valencia.

    YES!!!

  • 357 Darren // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:42 AM

    Well all in all tonight was a hell of a lot better than this time last year, bring on Bungle and his mob tomorrow. Our defence is looking pretty good now, finally a manager has come in and totally restructured it instead of just buying a trophy centre back.

    Without tempting fate I’ve gotta admit I am looking forward to this season more than I have done in a long while.

  • 358 Darren // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:44 AM

    BTW – unless a player was registered with the Premier League by midday Friday they are uneligible for todays matches.

  • 359 WelshWizard // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:49 AM

  • 360 Darren // Sep 1, 2007 at 1:14 AM

    Last word on Huntington, he is only 19 so I am surprised they have let him go on a permanent deal. Leeds are skint, I cannot understand why they didn’t just give him out on a year long loan deal. If a player hasn’t made it by 21 then ship him out, its not as if he’ll be on big money – it just all seems a little premature to me. Hope BSA doesn’t jettison Edgar next, he’s head and shoulders above Ramage in my eyes.

    Goodnight all – really enjoyed tonight (eventually), cheers to Ed for providing the service – TOP MAN!!!

  • 361 Lamesley Mag // Sep 1, 2007 at 6:42 AM

    Really sad to see Huntington go. At only 19 I think he has potential and a loan deal would have been better all round. However, BSA knows his squad and only last week, sellected Edgar ahead of Huntington for teh Barnsley game…..

    Paul is certainly not a LB but neither is Taylor, Carr, Ramage and Edgar.

    Good luck Paul and thanks for your committment to Newcastle United!

  • 362 Chareose // Sep 1, 2007 at 12:03 PM

    I really feel for you guys…i know what its like to have your youngsters sold or bought (As a leeds fan). Weve had Chelsea and Spurs camped in our youth academy poaching leeds kids for the last two years. Its incredibly disheartening to watch talented kids go to a club like chealsea where they will likely just sit on the bench, lose form, fitness and eventually dissapear from the game. Id advise any kid that they are better off being at a club where they can actually play rather than earn stupid money.

    Someone slammed Smith in the same sentance as Viduka on here….. As a leeds fan i can tell you Smith is one of the few players n the game currently that earns his pay. He busted his balls for Leeds in their relegation fight. But hes not all blood and guts he has sweet touch and is a big match player. Id have him back at Leeds any day. But Newcastle is the next best thing. Good luck lads

  • 363 lenfantterrible // Sep 1, 2007 at 1:48 PM

    what a mistake, another british talent sold……

  • 364 Mark // Sep 1, 2007 at 8:51 PM

    Shaun Dean, Ive been tracking Taylor since he was 15, and I believe he is going to be a great player, if he cuts out the idoit in him we sometimes see (stupid and blatant fouls, hes not exactly mr. incon f*&^*n spicuous) Nzogbia is a maybe, if he had a better delivery he would be a good winger. ATM he just puts his head down and runs. Headless Chicken style. Ramage is donkey, f*&^&g hopeless, same with shola. Huntington was too bothered about his hair getting messed up, and seemed a bit of a ponce. Edgar should be loaned out, Carroll seems a good target man, due to his height and awareness. Anyway enough of that.

    Given
    Beye, Cacapa, Rozey, Enrique
    Geremi, Barton, Smith
    Owen Viduka Martins

    decent 4-3-3.
    swap Viduka for Duff, Zog or Milner, then its a good4-4-2. Competetion for places!!!! and tactics!!!! get in!!!
