Ben Arfa Brings His Brother And Friends To Newcastle

One of the things Newcastle must continue to do with their new star player Ben Arfa is to ensure he settles in on Tyneside – quickly.

Ben Arfa – brought brother over to help him settle on Tyneside

He has done very well so far at Newcastle, since signing on a one year loan spell from French Champions Marseilles, but he hardly speaks one word of English at the moment, and Newcastle have hired an English teacher to help him learn the language.

Wonder if Fab Coloccini can help him out there? 😀

And it turns out that Ben Arfa  has brought his bother to Tyneside, and some of his French friends,  to help him settle in at the famous Newcastle United club.

This is what Ben Arfa said today:

“Cheik Tiote is the only other player at the club who speaks French, so my brother and some of my friends have moved over to Newcastle to help me settle in.”

Of course Ben Arfa came to Newcastle with a bad boy image, but Chris Hughton has already dealt with both Joey Barton and Andy Carroll magnificently to get them to sort out their private lives.

We feel sure that Chris can drum it into the boy that it’s for his own good,  to become a top professional, especially when this lad is so blessed with mercurial football skills.

And since we have many top professionals at the club right now, there are many good examples he can follow, not least of whom is Newcastle’s captain Kevin Nolan.

It’s in Newcastle’s best interests to ensure this lad settles in on Tyneside, and we’re sure the Newcastle fans will do their best to ensure Ben Arfa continues to love playing for the Newcastle United club, and remains happy on Tyneside.

If all that happens, we could have a top football great at the Newcastle club for years to come.

Comments welcome.

    All indications are that King Arfa wants to stay here by bringing his brother over too. Glad he wants us cos his fellow countryman Charlie Zog is still looking for the road signs out of Wigan.

    I admire Hughton for having the guts to sign Ben Arfa, because after arriving in those circumstances, if it all ends in tears (wait until he gets dropped) there’ll be nowhere for the manager to hide or say he was surprised at the outcome.
    On that point, I wouldn’t be delighted to hear he’s shipped over his brother and a parcel of his unemployed French mates to help fill in time between matches…..uh oh!
    Much prefer if he was learning English and had his Ma over to cook his dinner and tuck him into bed.

    Seems like he will sign the option and we will keep him. He is a true Geordie and a incredible person. I just hope his brothers or friends are young and good in soccer like him.

    “There was a lot of talk but Newcastle were the ones who wanted me and they are the club I have agreed to join, and if other clubs did want me then I hope I can show at Newcastle why they wanted me.”

    what worries me is that ben arfas using newcastle as a stepping stone for a move to a club that can offer both champions league and premier league football. i hope to be proven wrong by him. it all depends on how this season goes though…if we end up having a great season he’s more likely to sign permanently.

    arghh!!! some of you lads must live miserable lives lol…
    i thought i was negative at times. i mean the army and iraq
    hardens a man and makes him find humor in the worst
    situations so that helps me alot, but also it makes you
    constantly wait for the other shoe to drop. you expect the
    worse to happen and when you expect the worse alot of times
    you get it. for instance, 4 days before we were to go
    home on my first deployment to iraq my mates and i
    are all smoking and reflecting on our year in that shitehole
    when i said, boys i dont know why we are acting like
    we are going home, the army aint gonna let us spend
    christmas with our wives and kids when theirs muj left
    to be killed….sure as shite, got extended three
    months the next day….

    ive really worked on being positive now that the war is
    over for me and im back with my wife and kids. think
    some of you lads should try to do the same. the kid
    loves the toon and we need to do what the toon army
    does best and love him back and make it impossible
    for him to leave…..
