Newcastle To Launch Investigation Into N’Zogbia Quotes


There seems to be lots of news each day about Newcastle in the transfer market, but the problem is we don’t know what’s true and what’s made up, and it’s really hard to decipher which reports are true.

Charles N’Zogbia – Newcastle to launch investigation

We are very pleased today that Joe Kinnear has come out and slammed talk that Charles N’Zogbia being on the brink of leaving Newcastle United.

Apparently Joe Kinnear contacted one of his best friends in football, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, last night to see if there was any interest in the talented winger from Arsenal, and Joe was told by Wenger that he wasn’t interested in N’Zogbia.

Ans Newcastle United, quite rightly, are to start a full investigation surrounding the unsettling situation regarding the 22 year old former Le Havre youngster, who has been on Tyneside since the late summer of 2004.

With Spurs and Aston Villa also linked with N’Zogbia, Kinnear told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today:

“I’ve spoken to Arsene Wenger and he said he’s not interested in any of my players, so I don’t know where the agent’s coming from.

“We’re looking into it. If it is true, then the agent’s being disrespectful.”

“He’s never had the decency to explain anything to any member of this football club. It’s laughable, to be honest.”

“It’s absolute nonsense. Charles is under contract until 2012, and I told him on day one that he was a very important player.”

“He’s been in the team, and has done very well.” “He’s 60-40 to play tomorrow, and I hope he does.”

It’s interesting that Joe is blaming N’Zogbia’s representative, but we assume Joe has already talked to Charles himself about the comments he has made to the French magazine, L’Equipe.

We’re pleased Joe is moving to clean this thing up, because it’s hardly what should be seen in the newspapers – and Charles needs to abide by his contract.

As we said we just don’t know what’s true and what’s not, in the transfer market, and it seem the best thing to do is listen closely to what Joe tells us.

We’ll assume Joe knows what’s going on this transfer season – just kidding.     😀

    😆 , you’ve gotta laugh !

    but saying that I’d not loose any sleep if he left and also believe he (Zog) thinks he’s better than he actually is.

    Had enough of his disruptiveness. Sell him for what we can and get someone like Kightly or Bastos in for less money.

    It is obvious that the press and possible some other dubious characters are out to unsettle Zog and NUFC once again. Who do these arseholes think they are? Investigate by all means and, whoever is at fault, ban them from NUFC. We cannot stand idly by and witness our club destabilised by these disruptive individuals. We cannot tolerate any longer the gutter activities of these enemies of our club and city!

    Jean Arne Riise coming. From nufc.com

    Transfer window
    swings a JAR?

    Friday brought renewed speculation that United had made progress in signing one of their transfer window targets – former Liverpool full back John Arne Riise.

    Details are still sketchy as to whether the club are looking to complete a permanent deal with AS Roma or take the 28 year-old Norwegian international on loan.

    Bringing in a left back would allow the club to try and move on Jose Enrique, who isn’t rated by Kinnear.

    More as we get it….

    Don’t know why we don’t do it ourselves like “interest in West Ham’s super dooper Fred Blogs” before our game with them but suppose City are maybe helping with their interest in one or two of their players.

    Agents: Dodgy, amoral arses who enjoy causing and then observing the suffering of others.

    The French: See under ‘Agents’.

    French Agents: Ideally, see under a large concrete slab.

    probably the most worrying thing is that he is 60-40 to play tomorrow, and he hopes he does?

    I cant seem him dropping duff and he has already said carrol will start.

    Jonas has got to play for me!

    Its always N’Zogbia who comes out with these quotes. He is a pain. Not sure if Joe can hyandle these situations. He contradicts himself all the time.

    Not long ago i would have said no to Riise but the state we are in now i would take anyone at left back. However what is the point if it means we end up selling Enrique. Just leaves us with the same problem we had before with no cover in that position. The people at our club need to realise that 1+1-1 is still equal to one.

    Look it`s obvious he wants out, though a decent player no one is above being sold, especially when he repeats then denies the same old mantra.
    F**k it sell him if he does`nt want to be here , I am sick of his s**t and he is not that great that he could`nt be replaced.
    If we get a decent price for him spend it on McGeady who I think is a better player.

    It suits a desperate JFK to ignore the source of these comments, just as he blamed Given’s lawyer for Shay’s ‘come and get me’. (Note, there’s been no denial from Given yet.) It lets Kinnear get on on a day to day basis with players who want out. Joe turns a deaf ear and a blind eye to the realities at SJP as it suits him. fair enough.
    If the quotes were not at the behest of players, the club could sue or demand retractions. Its a game everybody plays and the loser is chiefly fans. Of course the transfer windows are the 2 opportunities for agents to make serious money. But even crooks like Willie McKay would not risk upsetting a valuable client by causing a rift unless it was in the player’s interest. If a player is unhappy with his agent, I’m certain there are plenty others he could change to.

    One major exception is Oba Martin’s agent who has recently libelled the med staff at the club. They should sue him if they had respect for their own staff.

    Agreed Sav though on the agent thing i think upsetting them through taking legal action would put us at risk of them touting our players more to other clubs.

    Cant believe zog would want to talk to little ol spurs. Not when he is living the dream at newcastle. So far that is given and zog who have stated they want to talk to spurs. Why do all these players want to play for such a small , badly supported , insignificant club?

    Anyway, have newcastle signed anyone yet?

    N’Zogbia clearly wants to live in London where i believe his family are as well. And by the way he sais he would prefer Arsenal. To be honest though i hope he joins you lot as i have been looking at your fixture list recently and there is no way you will be getting more than 40 points this season and that is with putting quite a few wins to your side in games that you could easily lose. Wigan will beat you this weekend as well in front of the nation on SKY.

    Alot of clubs like the transfer window as there are mug clubs around to pay silly money for players who aren’t that good or even sell players back to clubs for vast profits after a matter of months lmao.

    Riise would be a good addition with Enrique as back-up. As for Zog. Come clean sonny jim! What is the truth? What would be Zog’s first question in London (if that is where he really wants) – it is “Ou est la banque…”.

    dan157- Out of interest how many points do you think newcastle will get. I am confident we will finish well above you so do you think you will only achieve around 32-35. Looking at the depth of your squad and the players available i think this would be an achievement, all things considered.
