Newcastle After German Mario Gomez – Not Bafe Gomis


It may be that Newcastle are pursuing German striker Mario Gómez, who they were reportedly interested in during the summer, and not St Etienne striker Bafe Gomis, who they were also interested in, as Newcastle manager dropped a massive hint today.

Mario Gomez – 23 year-old 6’3″ German striker


There has been a lot of speculation that we are after St Etienne Bafe Gomis, but Joe gave a big hint this morning when he denied any interest in Bafe saying:

“Right name, wrong club.”

So that could well mean we are after VfB Stuttgart striker Mario Gómez, who is yet  is another player previously watched by the Dennis Wise team, although he was disappointing the European Championships for Germany last summer, but is certainly a big strong lad who should do well in the Premier League, but we wonder how much he’d cost?

Mario Gómez García was born in July 1985 in Riedlingen, Germany and is of German-Spanish descent – his father is a Spaniard from Granada and his mother is German.

Mario Gómez was raised in Unlingen, an Upper Swabian village and elected to play for Germany rather than Spain and played 6 times for the German Under-21 side before being promoted to the full Germany squad.

He made his debut for the full national side last year, and Gomez has now played 20 times for Germany with 6 goals.

Since 2003 he has played 105 times for Stuttgart with an impressive 46 goals, and in 2007 he was named German Footballer of the Year.

What do you think?

    ED – Gomis not Gomez, sounds a lot different!

    Gomis is pronounced Go-me and Gomez is pronounced Go-mez, the Brazilian and Portuguese Gomes is pronounced Go-mesh.

    joe is a joke………………………what he’s been saying in the last few days has been embarressing ‘contacted lucas neill, its serious’ ‘loan sigings should be AOK in 48 hours’ ‘hopefully have some for blackburn’ when explaining m’bia ‘6.2 cameroon’, wait till you sign him joe to compare him to viera!! and now the latest this week ‘right name, wrong club’ …….it’s ridiculous!!

    I would save your fingers if I were you Ed. There’s not much point in writing all these articles as we have absolutely zero chance of signing any of these players, which is even if we have actually made any bids, which I very much doubt it.

    From KK saying absolutely zip about our transfer targets last summer to JFK spouting off every 5 mins about the next tom dick or harry’dez we are supposedly after.

    What’s happened to all the news that we are after B Ferguson, can’t believe anything that comes out of this guys mouth any more.

    ahaahhahahahahhahah funny

    We are looking (dreaming) of the right players but until Ashley understands that 4-5 Mil will only get us Huddlestone’s and Bullards, these players are worth double that.

    We won’t get anywhere like this .

    Ashley : hey Alex how much is C.Ronaldo worth
    Ferguson : Well, 100Mil.
    Ashley : Okay Alex then i will bid 50M , shake hands on it Alex mate ??
    Ferguson : F**k off you fat greedy w*nker.

    I reckon this is our negotiation policy .

    Can’t wait to sign Quashie !!!!

    we shouldn’t have pushed alladyce, although i dont think he would ever have been the answer, he probably deserved more than he got.

    I’ve heard we’re bidding for Kaka and Mike Ashley has already written the cheque. It reads:

    Pay AC Milan
    One Hundred Pence and No Pence

    Also I hear Smith is to be soldfor a piece of Scalectrix track.
