Kinnear Talks About Charles N’Zogbia

Even though Charles N’Zogbia seems to give daily quotes that he wants out of Newcastle in January, Joe Kinnear seems confident the winger will be focused ahead of tonight’s FA Cup clash with Hull City.


Charles N’Zogbia – will still give his best tonight – wow – big deal!

N’Zogbia agent, Frank Peslerbe, has been causing all the trouble, and he confirmed French champions Lyon were ready to make their move, and if we can sufficient players ion during January, and replace Charles, then it may still be possible to get this whiner out of the club this month.

Joe Kinnear has rightly been irritated by Peslerbe’s interference during January, with his player, after all, contracted to0 the club until 2012.

Kinnear told the Chronicle today:

“There is not a shadow of doubt he will give it his all.” “Charles is a talented player and, as long as we can harness him and get him to do the job in the right areas, he has fantastic ability.”

“I have made it clear this week his future remains with Newcastle United.”  “In the position we are in at the moment, with 11 key players injured, he has a major role to play.”

“Irrespective of what bids come in, I am not in a position to let anybody go.”

“Had the other 11 players been available, I would have probably said I would listen to offers and work around that, but at the moment we are being crucified with injuries.”

“As long as the window is open, I will not be selling anybody – unless I consider them to be fringe players.”

Let’s just say we are hardly impressed that Charles will give his all if he plays tonight for Newcastle. That’s what we’d expect him to do since he’s getting handsomely paid by the club, and after all it’s Newcastle who have brought this lad along to where he is right now, and he’s hardly conducting himself with any class in the press.

Kinnear is confident of signing Danish international winger Peter Lovenkrands until the end of the season.

Joe added:

“I took the opportunity because he is a class player.”

“His contract has finished at Schalke.”

“e will train with us until Friday, and then I will make a decision.”

Whoops, so that means he still hasn’t made a final decision on Peter?

For no money we’re sure Lovenkrands will be worth it at Newcastle, but it will depend on how consistent he is, and whether he can avoid injuries, since we’ve heard form some Rangers’ fans that he tends to pick up quite a few injuries.

Sounds like deja vu – all over again.

    Any news on the 18 year-old Brazilian striker that was reporting of him joining the toon? People also said he is joining the first team immediately…but so far I cannot find any information about him.

    Ed. More N’Zogbia quotes for you to write about. He has been at it again today. So much for giving it his all, he must be exhausted after thinking of so many statements. Must have been up all night the last few days.,19528,11678_4793393,00.html

    N’Zogbia averages 3 statements a day, as if the hint that he wants to leave isn’t obvious enough.

    Anyway, January is a time to sell, especially for a player who wants to leave, plus the fact that the Dream Team – Man City has unlimited funds. RIP THEM OFF!!

    If we sell in the summer, we have less reasons to rip other clubs off, but keeping N’Zogbia will only affect team morale, even though his contribution is nevertheless important. I hope he won’t threaten to score an own goal if he doesn’t get his move.

    Apparently that Brazilian’s name is Caio Vinicius Ferreira but so far it’s looking like a complete fabrication

    “”I am tuned in to it all but, having heard several rumours, I would like to receive something concrete,” he told Aujourd’hui Sport.

    “It is up to them to approach Newcastle and me. I am waiting for them. Lyon, make a move!

    “Ligue 1 for me is an unknown. Therefore, in some respects, it is attractive.”

    N’Zogbia, who is contracted to Newcastle until 2012, believes Kinnear is bluffing when he says he will not accept any bids.

    “The club want to sell some players, so why not me?” he added. “We will see if I get the green light.

    “We have tried to get information to find out my price but Newcastle have said nothing.”

    Lets stop blaming N`zogbia`s agent the words are coming out of Zog`s mouth.
    I wish Joe would give him a kick in the ass and remind him he signed a contract to play for NUFC and enough allready.

    I hate booing any toon players, I would never boo because someone has had a bad game, especially if they’ve given their all… But Zog is goin to get a tongue lashin from me tonight, he is a disgrace. Some may not like it, but this is beyond the final straw! He’s playing to impress other clubs and not for the black and white.. F**K HIM!

    If Lyon really want him, why doesn’t Joe barter with them for a decent CM, in a swap deal?

    there is no point blaming zogs. he is right, we are a shower of shit under ashley – we are a joke. ashley needs his own players to slag him and his regime off cos ashley has paid no attention to us fans and what we think. maybe the players themselves will fair better once ashley knows they all want to leave. its not just zogs, its ALL the better rated ones wanting away.

    Fck Zogbia.

    I dont care how bad we’ve become, the way hes trying to tart himself around like a whore is disgraceful.



    Zog cant come back from this for me. Im sick of this whiny twat laying for our club, he is one of the most disrespectful players we’ve had in a long time and is doing nothing but hurting out status as a side. He is publicly pulling Newcastles name through the ground everyday now.

    Completely fcking tart.

    Of course its Zog’s fault.

    Look if i was PAYING a guy to run my affairs, then i’d want control over what he says.

    Dont be niave, in thinking oh its just Charlies agent mouthing off again. The agent is the puppet and Charlie has his hand firmly up his backside controlling every word he says.

    Even though Zog may be right in some of the things hes said, i have never heard him praise the club about how we brought him to the PL and gave him the chance to make a name for himself as well as giving him more money than he would ever have recieved back in France!

    Show a bit of gratitude, no one forced him to sigh his contract and if he wasnt so bloody greedy and want part of the transfer fee, he would hand in a bloody transfer request……has he done that yet, of course not.

    Hes a greedy, ungrateful waste of time!!

    Thats a direct quote, not one hiding behind a puppet!

    Let him go!!! I wouldn’t bother at all; he is selfish, inconsistent, and he thinks he is the best player of the whole world + he has got the wrong attitude!

    I would rather play a young lad, who can gain experience than play a guy who doesn’t want to b here and who will bring a bad influence to the team morale. We don’t need bad morale, cause we are still in a position in which we have to fight for every single point.

    Oh and already day 14 of the window and what has fat Ashley done so for??? NOTHING AT ALL!!!!

    N`Zogbia very good player !
    Hes a pretty decent player but nothing to rave about , could be quite easily replaced.
    I remember a couple of years back when I thought he would develope into a real good player, but he really has`nt progressed that much.
    Tends to make good runs, then instead of laying the ball off runs into traffick, poor end result.
    Afraid he is beginning to believe his own press.
    If we can get a decent price for him, spend it on McGeady, who can make the same runs and can also take people on and get the occasional goal.
