Taylor Accepts Newcastle Package – N’Zogbia Fee Agreed

More good news this morning in that the little baby Charles N’Zogbia is in talks with Wigan, and that Ryan Taylor has now agreed a package to come to the Tyneside club.  😀


Ryan Taylor – has now agreed package to come to Newcastle United

We hope Charles walks, and we’ll get Ryan Taylor in part exchange, who’s a mature man we may add, and cash, probably up to £5M, for the mixed-up Frenchman.

But Wigan is hardly a bigger club for Charles to meet his huge ambitions at, but they are the only club who have expressed an interest in him, in spite of all the rubbish he’s been talking in the press.

But most clubs want men and not babies in their sides.

Charles is is no longer welcome at Newcastle, since in these troubled times we want fighters at the club, and not children.

Joe said the Frenchman was in talks last night with Wigan about a proposed move to the Lancashire side, and that Ryan Taylor has already agreed a package to join Newcastle.

Joe Kinnear said of the Frenchman last night:

“He’s talking to Wigan and we’re waiting for the outcome.”

The news on N’Zogbia will come as little surprise to the Newcastle faithful, who have grown a little tired of his continual comments to the press, and the bad mouthing of our club. What a jerk!

But back to more positive things, and it seems more good news on Ryan Taylor, who we understand is more than keen to join Newcastle, as he sees it as a big step forward in his career.

Ryan is a very good and versatile player and will be the second good signing in as many days for the Newcastle club.

In fact late last night Sky Sports News and BBC Sports, both said that Wigan have now agreed a fee with Newcastle for Charles N’Zogbia, with Ryan Taylor set to move in the opposite direction.

But we need a couple more players through the door still, and with the money we’ll get for Charles and the great Shay Given, maybe around £13M in cash, we should be able to fund at least another two through the door, not to mention some possible loan deals too.

Howay The Lads!!

    Another unhappy player shipped out, i hope they keep the momentum going and others follow but only if willing players replace them. Only two days left though, which is an absolute disgrace considering only one signing was made in the first 29. Zog wont last five minutes in the metropolis of Wigan once he takes a reality check, good player on his day but good riddance. Same with Given im afraid, if he was as loyal as he is making out to be he would stay and fight for the cause instead of running for the money.

  • N’Zogbia wont fit in with Wigan. They are a team of hard workers and N’Zogbia does not work hard in any capacity. It wont be long before he leaves there too.

    I can see his first interview:

    “So Charlie, are you pleased to have left?”

    “Oui, Newcastle never understood me. They played me at left back, when i’m a midfielder and the Le Manager did not know my name.”

    “What made you come to Wigan?”

    “I have always supported this team and never wished to go anywhere else.”

    “So Brucie, will Charlie make the first team for you next match?”

    Steve Bruce:
    “Of course, Charlie N’zOngha, i mean Charlie N’Gobo, i mean young Charlie will be there for sure, we’re a little short at left back!

    “I hate this club, Arsenal want me and Bramble is picking on me in training.”

    I think that’s a bit unfair to be honest. He’s given it 11 years and the club still isn’t going anywhere. In fact it’s getting worse all the time.

    Loyalty is fair enough but I think if I’d worked for a company that’s going down the pan, and given it 11 long years of good service to see if it will recover, I wouldn’t be being too disloyal to move to a company that has some chance of success.

    A couple of weeks at Wigan and his agent will be making up stories to get him to his next club . It is a shame that the lad has nobody around him to advise him properly and let him play the football that he is capable of . His agent is a money grabbing B@$!@rd who is destroying the lads carrier , Pleased that another club wants him , lets hope that Wigan give him what he wants so we really are rid of the git .

    magforlife, I don’t agree with you on Given. He has been rock solid for us and stuck with us for very very long. He has the right to pursue something instead of sticking with a club that’s behaving more like a circus than a footballclub. He has been very loyal and I hope him all the best!

    Heard that Taiwo is keen on joining the Prem. Would be a massive signing for us at 5 mill!?

    If the mega rich Arabs hadnt taken over at Man City, would Given consider joining them? I dont think so, it would be different if he was moving to a champions league team and thats my point, he is using the sympathy vote to disguise his reasons for moving.

    get in there! to be honest that is a lreally nice amount of money to say he has blatantly come out and said he wants byebyes! normally cuts the price of the player greatly!

    so now striker, cm and Rb/Rw sorted……..we need attacking mid (hopefully from City) and Lb (Danny Fox?) and why not blow th rest on Loic Remy or Fabien Delph!

    I don’t agree that Given is disloyal but dejiuor, it was hardly beyond the call of duty was it??!! He’s on good money and was doing his job. It’s a shame that that’s enough to make you a legend up here now. So many are tossers and don’t try that the ones that do are totally loved – Milner. Is it really too much to ask for all 11 on the field to give it everything? I hope that we can see a team giving it their all soon as it will be enough to stay up.

    “If the mega rich Arabs hadnt taken over at Man City, would Given consider joining them?”

    Maybe, maybe not. If the mega-rich Arabs hadn’t taken over City then City might not be a team capable of going places.

    “I dont think so, it would be different if he was moving to a champions league team and thats my point”

    He can only move to a team that wants to buy him. If Man U or Chelski had offered to buy him he might have moved there.

    Even if he is in it for the money, I don’t blame him. He stuck with us for 11 years, never moaned or complained and was loyal to the club. He wants to try and win something and, yeah, maybe get a decent pay-day too. Nowt wrong with that IMHO.

    JFK claims we have offered Shay a new 6 yr deal, which he turned down (really, did we expect anything else) which is why he was giving permission to speak with Citeh.

    Given will always get a fantastic reception from me. Each to their own.

    Given has always been a good ambassadour for the club. But as supporters we should understand that he has ambitions. City is a club with money and are on their way up for sure. Given has never been a man for the money. That doesn’t mean he hasn’t been paid good money for his services.

    More English players, Nolan and Taylor are good deal if consider the money we invested.

    Nolan 4m compare with Veloso 12-14m I rate two of them the same, if not equal not much better. If 3-4 years ago Nolan will move with 10m price tag.

    If we want to add more English players in summer, go to Sturridge, Johnson, Richards, Onuoha, Barnes

    Forget about it…

    City DO have lots of money now, which DOES = Success.

    We may have success but not for a few years maybe, City COULD be big next year after a summer spending spree.

    I dont blame Given, he is 32 and wants to end with Trophys, he has put his time in for us and i wil always hope the best for him.

    He does not owe ANYTHING to Newcastle, ACTUALLY! We owe him for all the ponits he’s saved us. So be grateful.

    Good luck to given and there will be no anomosity from me and got a feeling he will return (prem survival pending) to SJP with applause.

    I agree with the above comment about if your stuck with a company that is doing t*ts up and you want to move on – why not.

    He aint like Gobzog. He’s (given) respectful and has never continually shot his mouth off about the toon. Good luck

    the one main problem with Nufc is we have been spoilt with players over the years who would get the Newcastle logo tattoo’d on their manhood if possible! Players like Shearer who would have done anything to give us success! The only trouble is these are die hard Newcastle fans and we only have a few left in our squad (Harper, Taylor etc) have made it so we expect every player to be like this. And it really isnt the case

    The truth is Given as much as he has been a very loyal servant, does not adore the team Shearer stylee and wants to get a nice retirement fund from whoever is willing and wants a few medals to show what he has done! Newcastle cannot offer this and wont for atleast the next 3 years! Shame he is leaving but im glad we have Harper at the helm, he is a great player (who kept Given out of the squad at times) and will give us his all!

    Just hope Given made a cracking impression last night and City now offer us 20mil :p

    In theory if Given goes for 8m and we have 6m for Le d1ck that leaves us 14m plus the 6m we have left over from Mike Ashley’s pot.

    So we should still have 20m to spend. Does anyone think that will get spent?

    given has been an outstanding servant, yes – he’s not going to the most sucessful team in the world but the top 4 already have decent keepers and Man city are on an exciting journey, who should challenge in the nxt few years if they buy correctly.

    coincidentily its not the 1st time we’ve heard players criticize our club and lack of direction, so I dont think it is all to do with money. We’re simply s**t and have been for years.

    You cant blame any players for wanting out of this mess, we’re lucky to have seen Shearer for the years we did..

    good luck Shay.. F**k off Charlie… :>

    If we are going to be forced into letting Given join City for a lesser fee due to his determination to leave then we should INSIST on Sturridge as part of the deal if not just a straight swap. PLEASE READ THIS MR. ASHLEY

    Ordinary comments, mag4life.

    It’s a miracle Shay has stayed as long as he has. Man City are clearly going places and will be a title challenger with a couple of seasons – Shay’s awesome talent deserves medals and he’s clearly a chance with this move.

    Let’s face it, he’s spent over a decade giving his all for Newcastle United and at age 32, we’re as far away as ever from this dream.

    If and when he lifts that first pot with City I’ll be standing and applauding the man – to say he’s moving for money is a disgrace, quite frankly.

    We dont half talk some cr@p.
    Some people are so blinded by fanatacism that they have almost no grip on reality.
    How anyone can criticise Given for wanting to move on is completely beyond me.
    He’s done his time. And what makes people think that he’s moving on for the money?
    City have funds to put together a good squad, and thats more than we appear to be doing.
    As for Zoggy – he is a superb player who’s been dumped on the bench for months at a time – and when he finally gets a game he’s shoved into defence.
    When the likes of Bellamy, Dyer, Jenas and Bowyer left I thought screw ’em.
    With Zoggy I hope he does well.
    Lets not forget this is a players career we’re talking about. Zoggy is good enough to play for the French team, but it wont happen while he’s with us.
    Good luck to the lad. Unfortunately he is yet another quality player who we didn’t know how to handle, who will come back in the future and stick it to us.
