Chimbonda Wants To Join Keegan at Newcastle


Unsettled Pascal Chimbonda is reported to be anxious to end his Tottenham days and join Kevin Keegan’s revolution at Newcastle.

Pascal Chimbonda – wants to join Keegan at Newcastle United

This will not be the last time we hear a player publicly say he wants to join Kevin’s new revolution at Newcastle United. We think the draw on the players to Tyneside will be great, even though we will still probably not be able to offer European Football next year.   🙁

But the French right full-back has been playing well recently and has started five of the last six games despite being one of eight players Tottenham boss Juande Ramos reportedly wants to have leave the club.

After Tottenham’s 5-1 victory over Arsenal in the Carling Cup semi-final second leg on Tuesday, in which he played very well indeed, the Sun reported the 28-year-old telling pals:

“Kevin Keegan has approached me and they’ve offered me more money.”

“I am definitely leaving Spurs. It’s all about the money. I don’t care about the final, I don’t care about the cup.”

We think Pascal would be a solid buy for the Tyneside club, and would have to fight it out with Habib Beye for the RB position – but that’s two good right backs at the club, if Pascal does finally arrive. Not too bad.

Comments welcome.

    He even said it’s all about the money and that he doesn’t care about the Carling Cup final. Do not buy him. He is a selfish person. Beye is more professional and just as good. Carr will be good cover under Keegan.

    KK approached me – No he did not as that would be Mort and they would go through the correct channels.

    This guy is a mecenary and left Wigan just of r the money. He knows Ramos wants him out and looking for a pay day.

    I really hope he does not end up at the toon.

    This is literally hearsay. He told “pals” this, eh? I really doubt anyone would come out and say “It’s all about the money”. Why can people not see through this rubbish reporting?!!

    Please stop taking quotes from The Sun, Ed, for your own sake.

    Not required….Beye is a excellent right back and IMO Carr has shown as long as he stays fit (He has looked fitter/quicker/sharper than at any point during his time at Newcastle) he will provide adequate cover….Chimbonda’s agent = Willie Mackay….Enough said

    Its all about the money, I don’t care about the final!

    Err, thanks but no thanks!

    Beye is top drawer, Carr is the best he has been here, and Taylor can cover if needs be.

    Chimbonda is one person I would not like to see playing in a toon strip.
    This guy is an out and out mecenary based on the comments to his so called friends.

    PC would be a good acquisition. A very capable RB.

    Had been one of Wigan’s star players when they were performing well under Paul Jewell.

    We were linked with PC before he signed for the Spuds!
    ..A typical KK wing back, who has flare and speed!

    Carr’s days are diminishing quick, and to be fair has failed to perform and stay fully fit since arriving under Bobby.

    We need to build upon our current squad, and PC will certainly challenge Beye for the RB position!

    millepede – I agree completely. Beye is a fantastic player and our best defensive player signed in years.

    We certainly do not need to be buying players like Chimbonda.

    Incredible. Only one person managed to perceive how idiotic these words really are. So idiotic that it is impossible that even the biggest idiot would actually say them. Chimbonda din’t say anything about any money, dudes. Grow up and think before you talk. He is a decent footballer, also, better than Beye offensively (but Beye is more solid in the back). Not my dream buy but wouldn’t mind him coming amongst 2-3 others.

    Why take any notice of anything they publish in the sun? A cheap rag that is only interested in peddling absolute tat. Everyone should boycot this paper. Chimbonda – money grabbing git – we don’t need you and moreover we don’t want you! Can anyone actually see him playing for his shirt ? and having any pride in wearing the black and white ? I think not !!!!

    Chimbonda is joking because he’s been linked to us so much recently and people have been saying all he cares about is money. Hes being Sarcastic. After telling that to the press he started swearing at them. Its a complete joke, dont get riled.

    THE CLIUB SHOP WOULD MAKE PLENTY OF MONEY IF EVERYONE HAD HIS NAME ON THEIR BACK.

    I STILL HAVE MY RESERVATIONS ABOUT MA AND MORT , UNTIL THEY START SPENDING BIG MONEY, WONDER IF THEY ARE JUST IN FOR THE MONEY.

    PLEASE GO OUT AND SPEND PLENTY OF MONEY YOU KNOW WE NEED IT IF YOU HAVE THOUGHTS OF MAKING US A GREAT TEAM.

    UNTIL THE PLAYERS COME IN, STILL THINK WE WILL BE A MIDDLE OF THE LEAGUE TEAM WITH HUGE SUPPORT AND PLENTY OF POTENTIAL.

    COME ON AT LEAST BRING 3 PEOPLE , WHO MAKE US KNOW YOU MEAN BUSINESS , OTHERWISE, I THINK I AM FLOGGINF A DEAD HORSE SUPPORTING THE TOON !!!
