Newcastle Must Get Control Over N’Zogbia Statements


It’s another Sunday and another statement from Charles N’Zogbia in the Sunday Sun, saying that he wants to leave Newcastle United.

Charles N’Zogbia – my dream team is Arsenal – next installment next week

This is getting to be a little tedious, and Newcastle need to decide if they want to sell him, and if they do serll him. Or alse tell Chgalres to stop blanting about alwwantintg to leave Newcastle, because this is getting to be just a little tedious.

And we probably expect Charles to come out tomorrow and say he was misquoted – we’ve read this story before – far too many times.

His latest quote in this soap opera is that his dream team is Arsenal — and Kinnear’s insistence that the Frenchman is happy on Tyneside becomes debatable at best.

N’Zogbia said (or is said to have said):

“I told Newcastle that in case of possible transfer, I will do anything to leave this winter. If the club receives a nice offer, they will try to transfer me.”

“I ask myself questions about my future. At Newcastle for three years we are playing in the bottom of the league.” “I want to win titles, and I have set myself high objectives, like being in the French team.”

“I am used to English football, so my priority is to stay here.” “Arsenal is the club that makes me dream the most in the Premier League.”

“France? I don’t know it very well! But I think about it. Lyon is a very, very good club. PSG is currently in a very good period.” “If I have to be transferred there, I would have no regret. It would be a good choice.”

Joe Kinnear must get a grip on this youngster because his quotes are starting to annoy Newcastle fans. The player is on contract at Newcastle, and he should be concentrating on playing well for the high wages we pay him, and not telling journalists about different teams he wants to join. Charles – please grow up.

We have to stick to that well worn strategy at Newcastle, that we only want players who want to play for Newcastle United, and if Charles wants to leave then get rid of him, but not in the January window. because we’ll need him through May.

In the summer if he hasn’t changed his tune by that time, then sell him – but for a good price – again at the club’s option.

Comments welcome.

    All the usual from Charles, next week he’ll say actually had a chat with the board and he’s leaving to Arsenal, then Arsene Wenger comes out and says he doesn’t want him then Charles says he’s going to PSG, then it gets to febuary and he’s still here!

    Ed how about a poll on here asking who we most want to leave in the transfer window? lets see how sick of Zogs we have got? mind you i know he wont be top. If we haven’t signed anyone by Jan 2oth then i dont expect any in. If we are going to sign enough to help us out they need to be in quick.

    It still baffles me how we let Milner go and kept Nzogbia. Get rid of him if he wants to go – which he clearly does. We could do with the money and we have Duff as cover. Nzogbia flatters to decieve- he rarely produce a killer finish when he is on the ball. We will be no worse off without him.

    I don’t think he has been committed to the club in ages,I have never rated him and wouldn’t be bothered if he went.

    These stories from Given,N’zog,Owen,Harps and Butt not signing deals does nothing to help the club though.

    i hope we sell that french cry baby. He thinks he is to good for newcastle and i think he is a ok player but duff is better.

    I we do sell him for 8-10 million who should we get to replace him?

    With that money we could get a left back and 1 or 2 center midfielders who actually want to be here.

    Charles can dream all he likes about arsenal..because he would be 3rd choice/reserve player there anyway…he obviously has an over inflated ego and is very very deluded to say the least.
    I would pack his louis vuitton bags myself-PRICK.

    does any 1 else think the press linking us with keepers shows how little they actually know about our club

    as it proves that they think harper is just a back up keeper

    when he is infact better than all the keepers we have been linked with

    i am comepletely sick of zog and feel ashamed of getting zog 14 on the back of my shirt

    Sell him. Get rid. Cash in. Ship out. Move on. Release him from his obvious torment. Let some other poor club put up with his destabilising ego and lack of end product.

    He clearly thinks he’s too good for NUFC so let him go somewhere else. We’re short of players BUT I’d rather have someone give 100% in the games for the team (like Milner did) than give 75% for the scouts in the stands…

    I doubt it’s an old regurgitated story either, people tend to get sued for stuff like that.

    If we do sell him…the money with go to Mike’s local casino in mayfair same as the Milner money and the imaginary 16m”War Chest” the chonicle mentioned 16m is not a war chest more like a pennystretcher kitty.

    PSG have some real quality player for whom we could do a player plus cash swap. Could be a win-win for us.

    N’Zogbia aint doing himself any favours what so ever by blabbing his mouth off the way he is. If Wenger has any sense he would keep well away.
    If N’Zogbia had any sense he would get on with his job and keep his mouth shut otherwise he is going to put potential buyers off by the way he is going on with his present club. Other clubs could think three years down the line N’Zogbia could do the same to their club by insisting he wants away. The kid has no loyalty and is another brat on our books. Get rid of the trash ie N’Zobia. He is a self obsessed little a..e hole that deserves a slap.

    If we get him for a good price then perhaps the money could go towards Arda Turan who i think would cost 10 – 12 million.

    If Kinnear was talking 16 million for three of our players then like Tom_Toon said that Nzogbia is on that list. I think the JK quotes about him being happy at the club were a facade until January and that he has always being prepared for his sale. Like i said, put the money towards Arda Turan or at least do a swap deal with PSG or Lyon.

    I don’t know, i think it would be the attraction of playing in the premiership that could get him here. I don’t even know how well he is playing at the moment though.

    Sell NZogbia, Smith, Owen, that will get us a couple of punt to by a few players. Some team will pay through the nose for overrated Owen, and the others should sell well enough as well.

    Beyethegreat, they didn’t really talk Given up either, not till the statment, they don’t really seem to have a clue about here.
    But I don’t think Kinnear is that impressed with Harper, the way he’s going hell bent to keep Given, the way he’s saying he’s the best keeper in the Prem by a mile..etc. It’s got me thinking he doesn’t rate him much.

    As much as we can do without losing a decent player and prospect like Nzogbia the position we are in now means we cannot be having a whining brat at the club. He has done well this season but not enough to make him irreplaceable. Ship him out but get a direct replacement and not think we can rely on Duff all season on his own.

    Dan if you where a continental player looking at our position right now in the league would you really leave your current club with the possibility of being relegated in a few months…I certainly wouldn’t if I was that player.

    I think Given and N’Zog will be sold that will mean Mike will have pocketed approx 30m including the Milner money.

    We have to buy before we sell. Imagine selling those and not being able to get players in before the deadline. That would just about seal our fait.

    I’ve just thought though. Didn’t Gutierrez come here as a left winger, he definately played there against Man Utd. So we could probably have Duff and Spiderman as our left wing options and bring in another right sided player. I know Pennant is available but I’m not sure what people think of him.

    Let him leave – annoying how he always tells the french press not Kinnear himself.

    Kinnear HAS to be given money to spend by Ashley otherwise we are in trouble.

    Surely he has been given some cash when he’s made enquiries already?
