Emre To Galtasaray – Don’t Believe It


News that link us today with allowing Emre to move to Galatasary, in order to secure the transfer of Arda Turan – we don’t believe one word of it.

Emre – going nowhere

While we expect journalists to say this, if only because Emre is Turkish, and there have been reports about Galatasary wanting him back, we think Emre can still do a job for Newcastle, if he can stay fit.

He hasn’t had much of a chance to show what he can do yet, but we know Kevin likes the player, and knows he can carve our chances.

And it turns out Emre and Arda Turan have the same agent, Ahmet Bulut,

And Ahmet says that Emre is very happy to stay at Newcastle, and we think that’s true because he hasn’t yet played under Keegan. Kevin must be a dream manager for Emre, because of the way the 50 times capped Turkish International plays so creatively.

No, we don’t think Emre will have anything to do with the transfer of Arda Turan from Galatasary, other then persuading Arda what a great club Newcastle is.

We want to bring talent into the club in the summer, not lose what we already have – and Emre has definite talent, there’s no doubt about that – if only we could keep him fit.
Comments welcome.

    I want a player with same qualities just as Pavel Nedved! We have been linked with Lubos Kalouda but he has just joined CSKA Moscow!

    I feel that every year everybody, myself included say that this will be emres year. The year he becomes the midfield general that we need. And then he gets injured. So I say let’s unload him. He is still a big star in turkey and the Galatasary fans would be glad to have him. So let’s swap him for Arda (a future star) and send Emre back to his home country and thank him for his years in Newcastle.

    As i’m sure alot of us will! If Emre has to go to sign Turan I really don’t see the problem.

    I haven’t thought as Emre as a valuable member of our squad for quite some time. Almost on a par with selling Dyer….one big ‘meh’ I’m affraid.

    Really can’t see why you’d rather get rid of Butt than Emre.

    We cannot afford to let Emre go. I for one would be gutted.He will have a big asy in whether we get Arda. Lets sign Turks this season instead of Turkeys like Boumsong etc in previous seasons

    If Emre is what the reason brought Turan to Newcastle then i won’t mind. But, If galatasary want Emre as part of exchange. Then I think should let Emre be.

    keep emre!! if we can get him playing regular he is quality ,shows passion and more creative than anyone else.Hope emre has a word with Turan to join the toon ,as this boy looks a class act.
    players i believe we should sign and get rid of;
    IN- gomis -replace dukes
    turan
    veloso-doubt it possible
    downing-if zog goes
    shorey/bridge
    zarate -great prospect
    dunne /van buyten.
    OUT- Ameobi,rozy,smith,duff(if we get turan),diatta,cacapa.Come on big mike ,show us the money!!!

    Spen…. Butt started 35 prem games and scored 3 which, considering our strikers scored 0,7,9 and 11 respectively, isn’t bad is it. Butt has made some GREAT passes this season and despite age is playing well over 25 starts a season on avg. since he got here. Blinding squad player for next season imo.

    Emre started 6 times this year and has barely avg 14 starts a year since he got here and only scored 5 goals. No one is arguing that theoretcially Emre is a great player, just that there would be no great loss in losing him if he’s never bloody fit.

    Scottish mag- GOD NO!! I hate Gilardino, absolute cheat and over rated too. He dives and feigns injury more than drogba!!

    Would like emre to stay but if he had to go i’d let him, just to save money on the turan deal.

    Keegan is supposed to be looking at Kitson from reading, I think that would be a good replacement for Ameobi at £3m.

    If any of our top strikers leave then find a top drawer striker.

    Spend in the midfield.

    If Gomis is in the France 2008 squad, then his value has just shot up dramatically. No chance of getting him now.

    Toon 1978:

    What I mean is that – if he is so good – he will get noticed by bigger clubs (during Euro 2008) and will probably end up signing for a top 4 club in England/Spain/Italy.

    Bob don’t be so negative. I’d like to think we can attract players that play for their national teams. All of the work to try and sign Gomis won’t simply be scrapped because he has been included in the France Squad. Sure we got Boumsong while he was playing for France! lol

    We’ll get Gomis signed up before EuroO8 anyway!
