Swansea Reach Premier League With 4-2 Win Over Reading

5:48 pm, Monday, May 30th, 2011 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 520 Comments

The was joy and jubilation this afternoon among the Welsh fans, when Swansea beat Reading 4-2 in the Championship Playoff final at Wembley, to become the first ever Welsh side to make it to the Premier League.

Scott Sinclair scores Swansea’s second goal

And it looked like the game was all over at half time, after Swansea had taken a stunning 3-0 half time lead.

Swansea got their first goal through a penalty when former Newcastle defender Zurab Khizanishvili made a stupid challenge on Italian Fabio Borini, and it was a stone cold penalty.

The only mystery was why the Georgian international didn’t receive a second yellow card for the clumsy tackle, and he would have been sent off – since he had already picked up a yellow card earlier – but the reason was he had already received one   yellow card – obviously. :D

Scott Sinclair, the former Chelsea youngster, made no mistake from the spot, as he put home the penalty with cool precision.

Referee Phil Dowd had hastily given out three yellow cards in the first 11 minutes, and why referees do that when they know the players are full of adrenalin initially – I don’t know.

Surely they should be lenient in the first 20 minutes or so, to let the players settle down a bit.

And then just over a minute after the penalty, Scott Sinclair had a brace, as he put the ball home when goalkeeper Adam Federici, could only parry a cross, and the 22 year-old made no mistake and Swansea had scored two goals in 75 seconds to 2-0 up.

And the stunned Reading side tried to come back but then on 40 minutes, Stephen Dobbie had an opportunity as the ball came out to him just inside the penalty box,  and he hit the ball home first time into the net – it was a terrific goal from the Swansea player.

And it was 3-0 at half time and of course the TV commentator was saying the game was over and all the usual nonsense.

And we suppose Reading didn’t agree with that assessment, as the Reading boys came storming back after the break.

On 49 minutes Noel Hunt, whose brother plays for Wolves, had his shot deflected into the net by Joe Allan, and Reading were back in it at 3-1 – and Joe Allen was given the own goal.

And then after 57 minutes Reading got the all important second goal, when Mathew Mills jumped higher than anybody to a left wing corner, and headed home beautifully and it was game on at 3-2.

Swansea looked completely shaken out of their game,  and their usual dominant defense didn’t look at all steady, and then Dobbie had a chance to get a fourth for the Welsh side, as he was clean through but somehow shot two yards wide when presented with an open goal from 14 yards out.

It was touch and go after Reading’s second goal, but then Reading gave away another daft penalty after 80 minutes, and it was a bad mistake from former Newcastle right back Andy Griffin as he brought down Italian striker Borini.

That gave Swansea a lifeline, and Scott Sinclair made no mistake from the spot, and got his hat-trick and will be the match hero in the valleys tonight – there’s no doubt about that.

Scott Sinclair scores from penalty after 80 minutes – the clincher

Swansea City held on for the remaining 10 minutes to record one of their most important victories for years and years, and they return to England’s top division after being absent since way back in 1983.

And for a club who almost went out of the Football league a short 8 years ago – this was a tremendous achievement  by the Welsh club.

The match attendance was an impressive 87,000 with an estimated 40,000 Swansea fans present , and there will be some celebrating tonight for sure.

That means that QPR, Norwich and Swansea are the three promoted sides and they replace West Ham, Blackpool and Birmingham.

So there’s 18 points for Newcastle next seaosn – surely. :D

And one more thing – that means Newcastle can now go in and bring Shane Long to Tyneside – it’s at least a possibility.

Comments welcome.

    Swansea were awesome 2day they deserve their place in the EPL I wouldn’t mind signing Scott Sinclair for us problem is where would he fit in as we’ve got ‘Super Shane’ playing on that left sided position… just wish we play like Swansea did 2day but will Pardwho play it that way .. only time will tell

  • 9 free giveaways // May 30, 2011 at 6:03 PM

    We might go for Shane Long now. I think he’s a decent player but would obviously prefer Gameiro, Sturridge and Defoe.

  • 10 BonVoyageBenny // May 30, 2011 at 6:09 PM

    Please not Shane Long, I know it’s only 1 game, but his performance today was hardly Championship Standard…

  • 11 JAMSHA // May 30, 2011 at 6:13 PM

    Congratz swansea

    Rich toon Bristol

    Its only fun when we put 1st on here lol anyways
    Shane Long… apparantly he’s been linked with Celtic and If im being honest I’d rather sign Gervinho and the lad Gameiro (unless he prefers to go to Spain(Valencia))

  • 14 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 6:17 PM

    BVB
    Got to disagree on Long there. He got very little of the ball in the danger zone and was a lone striker up front because Hunt had to drop deep a lot. Everytime he had the ball he looked very decent imo and he never gave up

  • 15 JAMSHA // May 30, 2011 at 6:18 PM

  • 19 JAMSHA // May 30, 2011 at 6:22 PM

    Sum news 4m Fur10ng As mentioned earlier, looks like Gamiero will pass us by, Gervinho however all set for sensational NUFC move after his advisors reject EFC

  • 20 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 6:23 PM

    Long was poor today but the last time i watched him he was readings best player. All players have bad days and 25 goals is a good record. Would rather other options but if we ended up with him i won’t be too unhappy

  • 21 JackButler // May 30, 2011 at 6:24 PM

    would take long in place of strolla, couldn’t be any worse

  • 22 sticklebricks // May 30, 2011 at 6:33 PM

    Would have prefered to see Reading promoted if I am honest. EPL being the English premier league and all that..

  • 29 Oleg G // May 30, 2011 at 6:39 PM

    Please go to Gervinho facebook page http://www.facebook.com/Gervinho

    And tell him happy birthday and some nice words from us. Give the lad some good vibe. He is young, and needs the feedback. I am sure he will like to see so many fans of a team asking for him to come.

    Already around 20 people commented on his page, keep it coming and put some LIKES there on the comments as well. NUFC fans are taking over Gervinho’s facebook page :)

  • 30 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 6:39 PM

    Swansea play some great football. The man who got them there was English the fact the club is from Wales doesn’t matter one bit to me!

  • 31 ToonAndy // May 30, 2011 at 6:40 PM

    Not many people have mentioned interest in signing demba ba on a free… I think he would be a quality signing…

    In:

    N’Zogbia – 8.5
    Gervinho – 10
    Cabaye – 4.3
    Sturridge – 10
    Menez – 9
    Gameiro – season loan with option to buy
    Demba Ba – free
    Graham Carr special X 2 – 8 mill

    That would be the best transfer window possible lol

  • 32 Oleg G // May 30, 2011 at 6:41 PM

    And here is the page of Gameiro.

    http://www.facebook.com/kevin9gameiro

    Although I do not think he is coming. A player who already said he wants to go somewhere. I would prefer Gervinho, Strikers are easier to find I think, also, Gervinho has Tiote.

  • 33 NottsGeordie // May 30, 2011 at 6:42 PM

    sticklebrick

    I thought it was the BPL barclays premier league.

  • 34 ginkoh // May 30, 2011 at 6:42 PM

    Swansea deserved to play in PRM next season. Hopefully they can make impact and continue to play good football too.

  • 35 Oleg G // May 30, 2011 at 6:42 PM

    ToonAndy

    Good list but I think Gervinho for 11-12

    Sturridge at least 13M. Prem exp. and great record this year, there is a buzz around him.

  • 36 G // May 30, 2011 at 6:43 PM

    Congrats to Swansea, however, for them I think they can look forward to an almost certain relegation next season. Looking at their squad I would be amazed if they can survive against even the most pedestrian of sides. I did say the same thing about Stoke City some time ago, and yet they are still up here.

  • 37 JackButler // May 30, 2011 at 6:43 PM

    What about Bassong, seems he wants away from spurs, would allow Saylor to move to right back?????????

  • 38 stephen1971 // May 30, 2011 at 6:43 PM

    ba would be a good signing i also think hargreaves on a free would be a good one to back up tiote (pay as you play contract) like that wee shite a manure

  • 39 CheickTiote // May 30, 2011 at 6:44 PM

    How do we know that that Facebook page is legit?

  • 40 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 6:45 PM

    G
    I agree with you they will be next seasons Blackpool imo

    Ba wouldnt be a good signing if his knee explodes (which is a large possibility) and he never plays again

  • 41 Toonboy_84 // May 30, 2011 at 6:45 PM

    Congratulations swansea.

  • 42 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 6:48 PM

    Ba on pay as you play would be fantastic. Ba on no pay as you play would be a HUGE risk

  • 43 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 6:50 PM

    WWJBD: it wouldnt really be much of a risk though if his knee did go as we’d be getting him for nothing anyways

  • 44 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 6:51 PM

    a must say hoffenheim have been well and truly ripped off from west ham.. they got something like 2million upfront then the rest was based on survial and goals/appearances.. and now hes not even guna be sold on so west ham are screwed aswel

  • 45 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 6:52 PM

    GeordieToon89
    We would still need to pay his wages and his signing on fee which is apparently quite hefty. I like him but apparently his knee is worse than Woodgates so he would be a huge risk imo

  • 46 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 6:54 PM

    GeordieToon89 Then We’d end up with another Viduka situation

  • 47 stephen1971 // May 30, 2011 at 6:56 PM

    ba is a good solid striker who played well when morale was rock bottom at west ham , exact attitude we need in our camp , he knows where the back of the net is ,
    you need to take risks about players health , look at hba we signed him with his leg in 3 pieces, i don,t hear any complaints

  • 48 Toon1978 // May 30, 2011 at 6:58 PM

    Whats the latest on Gervinho lads, has Everton been rejected by Gervinho?

  • 49 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 7:00 PM

    stephen1971
    Ben Arfa’s injury is a risk yes but its not a ticking time bomb which is what Ba’s is. Its why Stoke didnt sign him and West Ham only did beacuse they were desperate for strikers and his former club wanted shot of him before he couldnt play anymore.
    Ba is a good player no doubt dont get me wrong I like him but his knee isnt worth the risk imo

  • 50 kevymartins // May 30, 2011 at 7:01 PM

    How do you tweet and get retweeted on twitter..how does itwork?

  • 51 stephen1971 // May 30, 2011 at 7:01 PM

    still rather have sturridge anyhow

  • 52 JWatson // May 30, 2011 at 7:03 PM

    As a Newcastle fan living in Swansea, It’s been a fine week or so. Cabaye has been signed and Swansea are in the Premier League! That means I get to watch some pretty big games next season ;)

  • 53 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 7:04 PM

    Kevy to tweet you type in the box underneath the thing that says ‘What’s happening?’ on the home page. To RT you hover over the bottom of someones post and the options come up. Just click on it there

  • 54 ginkoh // May 30, 2011 at 7:06 PM

    Ba is good player no doubt but with his injury is question.

    Although I don’t think he can make impact next season but he will be good addition for us.

  • 55 roe997 // May 30, 2011 at 7:06 PM

    heard arsenal have turned attention to keeping arshavin, looking mre and mre likely gervinho to us

  • 56 ToonDownSouth // May 30, 2011 at 7:06 PM

    JWatson, how far is the train station from the stadium? Living in Bath during term time, so I was hoping one of the Welsh teams would come up!

  • 57 Toon1978 // May 30, 2011 at 7:08 PM

    roe997

    Maybe they realise thah he has decided to come to us OR Lille are keeping him.

  • 58 JWatson // May 30, 2011 at 7:09 PM

    ToonDownSouth

    It’s no more than 20 minutes up the road, the train station is in the city center and the stadium is just on the outskirts!

  • 59 Thump // May 30, 2011 at 7:09 PM

    Gotta say, it was a great game. Had Reading have showed up in the first half it probably would have went to penalties.

  • 60 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 7:10 PM

    roe997 where did you hear that? I thought Arshavin was out the door

  • 61 JackButler // May 30, 2011 at 7:11 PM

    Liberty stadium is about 3/4 miles from the station

  • 62 Toon1978 // May 30, 2011 at 7:12 PM

    WWJBD

    Apparently Arshivan is desperate to stay at Arsenal. Seen it on TWITTER before.

  • 63 onepeterb // May 30, 2011 at 7:12 PM

    Ginkoh If he’s not going to make an impact how can he be a good signing

  • 64 ToonAndy // May 30, 2011 at 7:13 PM

    ToonDownSouth…. ABout 15 mins walk m8… just follow all the black and white shirts so u’ll be fine haha

  • 65 toonfan76 // May 30, 2011 at 7:13 PM

    I’ve heard that mentioned about Arsenal holding on to Arshavin. Someone mentioned it on an earlier thread. Gervinho is looking like a strong possibility now. We can only hope.

  • 66 ..SwedishMagpie.. // May 30, 2011 at 7:15 PM

    anybody who dares to challenge me on fifa?

  • 67 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 7:15 PM

    Toon1978
    Really? Arsenal must have a very comfy bench.

  • 68 The Entertainers // May 30, 2011 at 7:16 PM

    Long didn’t turn up. Seen him a few times, decent player but not for us.
    So disappointed it’s gone quiet on the Osvaldo front, hopefully we’ll look again if Gamiero passes us by.
    Franco-Argentine feel, love bit of fusion :)

  • 69 Toon1978 // May 30, 2011 at 7:16 PM

    WWJBD

    LOL yeah definately.

  • 70 kilcline // May 30, 2011 at 7:18 PM

    Gameiro, Ba, Sturridge

    I bet we must have a couple of others standing by too. Calibre we need though.

  • 71 stephen1971 // May 30, 2011 at 7:19 PM

    well whatever happens with our strike force we need 2 quality strikers in just incase ameobi (bambi on ice) gets injured lol, i thought pardew was going to play hba up there in the middle so would we play a 5 mid field with 1 up front or play hba as a second striker ? tiote cabaye and hba in the middle ?

  • 72 kevymartins // May 30, 2011 at 7:19 PM

    Why the fook wont gravatar change my profile pic ffs

  • 73 Toon1978 // May 30, 2011 at 7:20 PM

    Almost sure now we won’t get Gemeiro so we should try else where. Can’t think of anyone really can you hehehehehe? ohh i have one name but i’m sick of mentioning him.

  • 74 GeordieGerman // May 30, 2011 at 7:20 PM

    Gervinho, just wrote in his facebook. “lukin forward 2 meatin u town toon? fans”.

    And what happens after 5 games and Ba’s knee explodes and we are left with Best who will get injured and Ranger who is gangsta first footballer second? :)

    Also Saylor is a crap RB. Rest of the team I quite like though haha

  • 82 Toon1978 // May 30, 2011 at 7:25 PM

    Sorry mate i can not see that lol. Might be looking in the wrong place.

  • 83 barryvenison // May 30, 2011 at 7:25 PM

    Sorry but Shane Long is not good enough for us or the premiership to be honest. He missed an absolute sitter at the end of the first half which could have at least shown a predatory finishing instinct. He tries hard but lacks the height, strength or skill needed. Rather see Ranger get more minutes. WE NEED STURRIDGE!!!!

  • 84 GeordieGerman // May 30, 2011 at 7:26 PM

    toonfan76, “sly devil”. Tut tut I was hoping for much better/worse abuse than that. Looks as if I just have to go and flog myself again. :-(

    And Woodgates knee looks fine on a good day ;)

    I agree I said I liked it :) but I do think we will spend money on a lead striker and I doubt Jose will be here.

  • 94 GeordieGerman // May 30, 2011 at 7:31 PM

  • 98 stephen1971 // May 30, 2011 at 7:34 PM

    mancgeordie it looks like a good team mate but do you really think we should play 3 non experienced pl players down the middle, it would be a huge risk

  • 99 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 7:36 PM

  • 104 GeordieGerman // May 30, 2011 at 7:43 PM

    Have a good un GG

    quinny
    He made a very good impact on West Ham and has a good eye for goal plus he is both fast and strong….though he did say he was going to win the FA cup with West Ham after they had been knocked out bless him

  • 109 quinnynufc // May 30, 2011 at 7:48 PM

    lol wwjbd,
    imo he looked good in a very poor west ham team along with scott parker

  • 110 NottsGeordie // May 30, 2011 at 7:52 PM

    He scored like 8 goals in 14 games or something like that. Thats really good saying as he was playing for a bad team.

    You may be right there in all honesty but he does have a good work rate and carved out some good goals but then Parker is crap and he got player of the season by playing decent for West Ham so I am maybe being drawn into the Ba hype haha

  • 112 Mancgeordie // May 30, 2011 at 7:55 PM

    don’t think anybody can doubt ba’s abilty its just his knee apparently

  • 113 JackButler // May 30, 2011 at 7:56 PM

    How bad is his knee supposed to be??

  • 114 gorskino10 // May 30, 2011 at 7:57 PM

    He is amazing Ba is 7 goals in 12 EPL games, great long range shot on him, scores with his head and tapins, tall/strong and powerfull.
    And also has a clause so he can move on for Free
    Thats why he has hype, he adjusted to our league in no time, speaks fluent English etc…

  • 115 The Entertainers // May 30, 2011 at 7:59 PM

    On a different note……… Blatter has just made a complete a**e of himself.

    Not surprising really team mates and all.

  • 121 JackButler // May 30, 2011 at 8:03 PM

    Would Sturridge come with Barton still here, heard there was still a big problem between them

  • 122 burnsie // May 30, 2011 at 8:04 PM

    TIOTES NOT on twitter mate @ the entertainers

  • 123 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 8:05 PM

    Newcastle United have 12.5m fee accepted for Gervinho, player has agreed to become new No9. Clubs locked on how fee will be payed. #nufc

  • 128 ginkoh // May 30, 2011 at 8:08 PM

    We dont know what Barton did to him….some memories die hard

  • 130 JackButler // May 30, 2011 at 8:09 PM

    don’t know if it comes from their time at city

  • 131 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 8:09 PM

    Only problem with that statement is the No 9 shirt is for a striker…..which Gervinho isnt

  • 132 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 8:10 PM

    just heard it off my mate again deal will go through

  • 133 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 8:12 PM

    thats the number he has ment to ask for and pardew said he can have it

  • 134 roe997 // May 30, 2011 at 8:12 PM

    gervinho a striker and winger

  • 135 quinnynufc // May 30, 2011 at 8:12 PM

    agree wwjbd,
    thinking the same. thought he was a winger. n09 shirt should be saved for our next goalscorer

  • 136 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 8:13 PM

    hba getting no 10 shirt aparently

  • 137 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 8:13 PM

    Your mate get that off twitter?

  • 138 JackButler // May 30, 2011 at 8:13 PM

    Can anyone else remember Keegan say that Sami Nasri would not come to NUFC because of Barton, or am I just having another senior moment?

  • 139 ginkoh // May 30, 2011 at 8:13 PM

    The best thing for this transfer market is even after we spend 12m+ for Gervinho and 4.5M for Cabaye, We still a lot of funds to spend.

  • 140 gorskino10 // May 30, 2011 at 8:13 PM

    burnsie nice chant, his knee isnt that bad i mean Torres was told his knee was ruined but Chelsea bought him for 50m and he passed a Medical.
    For free he is worth the risk.

  • 141 roe997 // May 30, 2011 at 8:14 PM

    ya, arsenals jack dalton,sports writer said earlier said gervinho is joining nufc

  • 142 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 8:17 PM

    JackButler I think he was playing in a team with Ousmane Dabo at the time. He was one of many that Barton took a liking to with his fists. We need to sign Richard Dunne as MA’s body guard, keep Barton in check as it just makes our club look daft him speaking out like he is

  • 143 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 8:18 PM

    If Gervinho gets the no 9 then Pardew has no understanding of the meaning of the shirt

  • 144 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 8:18 PM

    no he said alan thompson i am on twitter and i havent read that

  • 145 JackButler // May 30, 2011 at 8:19 PM

    just wondering with all the french players we’re linked with, weather this is the reason for Barton having his contract pulled?

  • 146 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 8:20 PM

    I don’t really care who gets number 9 if it means we get top players.

  • 147 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 8:21 PM

    http://twitter.com/#!/nufcinsideinfo
    this lad said that exact thing 4 hours ago bud

  • 148 ToonDownSouth // May 30, 2011 at 8:21 PM

    WWJBD, I can imagine it’s a really tough call for him.

    I know a lot of us here are die hard fans – can’t call myself that as I’m only 20, but some of the older fans on here haha – and so we’ll agree with you on that.

    But at the same time, imagine if we missed out on a world class player, and he goes to Arsenal or Liverpool, just because of a shirt number.

    People would be calling for Pardews head!

  • 149 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 8:22 PM

    surely we cant give gervinho the number 9.. it means a cant get his name on one of my shirts as i hate having the number 9 on my back grr =[

  • 150 ToonDownSouth // May 30, 2011 at 8:22 PM

    And toonruz knows that he just copied and pasted it ;) Else he wouldn’t have included “#nufc” haha. Dubious about his “friend” though – just a twitter guy? :D

  • 151 roe997 // May 30, 2011 at 8:24 PM

    av heard barton has recently having digs at ma and co and the way the clubs run,spouting all kinds of rants.including at recent charity after dinner speechs,and its all got bk to the fat man.he ment to be proper pissed off and pulld contract talks

  • 152 Rotonda heights // May 30, 2011 at 8:24 PM

    lots of players have said they wouldn’t come because of barton, not just French ones

  • 153 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 8:26 PM

    WWJBD
    just read it mate and i havent been following him but i will from now on cheers and he says deal has gone through

  • 154 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 8:26 PM

    TDS
    Yes I agree but I dont see a player refusing to come to us because of a number in all honesty

    Personally I dont think anyone should have that shirt number til its earned.

    And yeah thats why I wondered haha ama devil for catching some out ;)

  • 155 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 8:27 PM

    weve pulled out of Gameiro deal.. wonder if that means we wont be signing a full on striker for a big deal? maybe its just Cabaye and Gervinho then a few other players for say max 6 mil

  • 156 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 8:28 PM

    GT89 – Where did you get that info from?

  • 157 ToonDownSouth // May 30, 2011 at 8:29 PM

    Assuming that these magic twitter sources aren’t all just spouting nonsense and agreeing with one another, I dont like the idea of having (another) number 9, who we know would rather be at a different team (Arsenal).

    I don’t blame ANY player for having ambition beyond our club – even Manchester United have to deal with that sometimes – but just not in our number 9 shirt. Rather give it to Saylor haha, Geordie bord and raised! (;

  • 158 ToonDownSouth // May 30, 2011 at 8:30 PM

    born*

    Also, I’d like to see Best start for us next year. You can’t shaft a lad who’s been nothing but class for us.

  • 159 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 8:30 PM

    GT89
    Are you just going off that fella I put a link to?? I noticed he said that but Gervinho is a winger not a striker so why would signing him push us to pull out of the Gamerio deal?

  • 160 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 8:32 PM

    TDS
    If we are playing 2 up front Best earned his spot as one of them in my eyes

  • 161 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 8:32 PM

    may be we have changed out target for a forward

  • 162 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 8:33 PM

    Gervinho
    was playing up front last nite tho

  • 163 quinnynufc // May 30, 2011 at 8:34 PM

    i would defo give best a go. before his injury he was on fire. scoring and his off the ball movement was sharp as

  • 164 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 8:35 PM

    the only thing that gets me is he said we bid for zog but zog is already ours

  • 165 jimmy // May 30, 2011 at 8:36 PM

    maybe gameiro is the striker we gave a deadline to and its over so weve pulled out. by the sounds of it he wants to go to spain.

  • 166 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 8:36 PM

    yeah WWJBD just going off tht twitter link blokey its abit suprising if its true seens though we need at the very least 1 new striker.. we also gota think if we sign gervinho wer guna need a suitable replacement for a month or two in jan as its the african cup same with tiote

  • 167 toonfan76 // May 30, 2011 at 8:36 PM

    I think Gameiro has his heart set on Valencia. But if they can’t afford him we will probably be second choice team.

  • 168 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 8:37 PM

    toonruz
    That holds no water with me mate we need a striker everyone knows this. So why would we bid for a striker only to pull out when we are (apparently) leading the chase
    Correct me if I am wrong but Sow played striker and Hazard and Gervinho were either side of him in a 4 3 3 formantion for Lille last night

  • 169 NUFC STEVE // May 30, 2011 at 8:38 PM

  • 172 JackButler // May 30, 2011 at 8:39 PM

    Why would we pullout of deal for a striker after we sign a winger?????

  • 173 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 8:40 PM

    WWJBD – thats true Hazard on the left and Gervinho on the Right of Sow who played the centre forward role

  • 174 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 8:41 PM

    Gervinho and Hazard wer playing as advanced wingers

    Newcastle United have 12.5m fee accepted for Gervinho, player has agreed to become new No9. Clubs locked on how fee will be payed. #nufc

    Newcastle United make officially enquiry about Charles Nzogbia but are put off by asking price from Wigan. They want 12m for there star man

    #nufc pull out of Gamerio deal after agreeing Gervinho deal. Player is now set for #Valencia

    thats it for us news. He said Larson is going to Sunderland as well

  • 178 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 8:44 PM

    a think weve pulled out cos Sturridge is our main target as hes more of a suitable loan striker than gameiro..

  • 187 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 8:50 PM

    a still dont believe Zog is a done deal as if it was surely it would have leaked a little by now so i dont believe it atall.. plus why wait to announce it we dont have to wait we can announce it wenever we just cant officially show him off until july 1st everything can be signed though

  • 188 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 8:50 PM

    aaronjd
    what did u say lol

  • 189 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 8:52 PM

    In which case Gervinho is a straight out winger with the ability to score goals by cutting inside….that is not what a striker does (again correct me if I am wrong) and we need strikers.

    toonruz no offence mate but there is only one source I trust http://www.nufc.co.uk/page/Home when its on there its a ‘done deal’

  • 203 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 8:58 PM

    If we’re to get Sturridge we’ll probably try get it tied up before the first game of The U21 championships that start June 11th. Would be great if it happened!

  • 204 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 8:58 PM

    belfastgeordie87
    In the Bentley example the deal did fall through beacuse Bentley wanted a condition that he had to start every game for us and we said jog on sunshine

  • 205 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 8:58 PM

    so we could be waiting until august before any are even announced pathetic really..we need excitement now ha.! how do you know this toonruz?

    12.5million for a player with a year left is a little steep mind unless it euros like.. Suppose we could ask for more for Enrique aswel ha.

    Cabaye
    Gervinho
    Wanyama
    Sturridge
    Barnetta(if he has a good medical report)
    M’Bengue(weve enrique stays or not)
    Williams(free transfer)
    Reo-coker(cos hes better than Pratley)
    Also would F**king love Berbatov if we could do a decent deal with Man utd as im sure he would take a pay cut to join us

  • 206 free giveaways // May 30, 2011 at 8:59 PM

    Gervinho plays as an advanced right winger, he’s not an out and out striker. If we did sign him I presume Pardew would want him on the right, N’Zogbia on the left and Ben Arfa central just behind a main striker, Gameiro or Sturridge or whoever.

  • 207 toonbelmonter(barnetta4nufc) // May 30, 2011 at 8:59 PM

  • 210 CHAPPA // May 30, 2011 at 9:02 PM

    we should try a bid in for berbatov looks like hes on is way from old trafford would love 2 see him in the black n white jersey :)

  • 211 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 9:02 PM

    i think Sturridge would be more suited to that

    Gervinho-Benny-Barnetta/Zog
    Sturridge

  • 212 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 9:02 PM

    We got all the way to having a deal agreed and invited him to come see our stadium to only say nar son we have a winger which we were wooing while talking to you now so on ya bike to the bankrupt club in spain? Seems a little suspect to me

  • 221 t00ntime // May 30, 2011 at 9:06 PM

    o and apparantley deal is also done on zogbia ( that he is coming here i guess ) it just says :

    @cwarr07 So we have already tied up deals for
    Gervinho and Cobaye, any more news on Nzogbia?

    to wich cwarr said : @StevenWelsh93 Deals done

  • 222 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 9:06 PM

    we wouldnt say we had no interest in a player cos of injuries without doing our own tests first its only professional and also he didnt have any problems at west ham neither so we would be looking at him atleast

  • 223 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 9:07 PM

    someone ask cwarr07 about Barnetta see what he says

  • 224 TonyGreenSupreme // May 30, 2011 at 9:07 PM

  • 226 gorskino10 // May 30, 2011 at 9:08 PM

    TBH Martins wore it and hardly scored was hit and miss player i would want him to have 9 JUST yet but i would care either.

    Id prefer Marvin Martin or Ryad Boudebouz over NZogbia dont want his winging again dont need it we want people who WANT to be here.

  • 227 aaronjd // May 30, 2011 at 9:08 PM

    Haha aye that’s me. I was only trying to coax so more info on gervinho. Didn’t deserve a right hook from his iron fist!

  • 228 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 9:08 PM

    been talking to him on twitter

    Dont know if this has been put on here …
    http://www.lequipe.fr/Football/breves2011/20110529_094649_newcastle-veut-gervinho.html
    L’equipe are normaly very reliable and are saying we have already met his agent and gervinho is due to meet our officials sometime this week. Also being reported in france that the other team bidding was everton, this would have been the mystery club from the sunday sun.
    Starting to believe cwarr could be right about this deal, also gamiero thing on cwarr twitter is a RT from someone else.

  • 230 t00ntime // May 30, 2011 at 9:12 PM

  • 237 CheickTiote // May 30, 2011 at 9:18 PM

    Cwarr is right trust me, the things he’s said in his tweets and the things Pardew have said add up.

    Cwarr recently said that Newcastle were setting Gervinho a deadline and that Ashely was getting involved and a whole ensemble of Newcastle officials went to France, and a couple of days later Pardew said that they had set a player a deadline.

    He said ages ago that the deal with Gervinho was very much on when people on this blog and Ed had thought ‘no chance’ and yes, the deal is still on.

    Trust me this Cwarr is legit, all the things he says adds up.

  • 238 ToonDownSouth // May 30, 2011 at 9:18 PM

  • 270 09nufc09 // May 30, 2011 at 9:37 PM

    If cwarr is guessing/reporting from newspapers, websites how do you explain him getting gosling and tiote spot on before anyone had heard anything about it, he has got more spot on aswel before it has been reported anywhere. noone even knew who tiote was before he announced it. Most of the things he reports normaly turn up in a paper a few days after.

  • 271 MacToon // May 30, 2011 at 9:37 PM

    Blaise Matuidi could well be Smith’s replacement then, makes sense I suppose.

    Cabaye, barton’s replacement!

    M’Bengue, Enrique’s replacement

    N Zog, Jonas’ replacement

    and

    Gervinho is Routledges replacement….

  • 272 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 9:38 PM

    that fella says Tiotes got a release clause a dont believe its true

  • 273 ToonDownSouth // May 30, 2011 at 9:38 PM

    Hmm. 24.4 million pounds? Whose ass did he pull that figure out of?

    I expected Tiote to be off this summer to be honest, but not if we pull of these signings

  • 274 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 9:38 PM

  • 280 MacToon // May 30, 2011 at 9:40 PM

    Just read:

    Tiote has a release clause in contract of 24.4 million pounds. Manchester United interested. Blaise Matuidi will be signed if Tiote leaves.

    always a kick in the balls after good news lmao

  • 293 Obafan // May 30, 2011 at 9:51 PM

    It’s a long time since I’ve posted on this blog. Here are my thoughts so far:
    - Cabaye; fantastic signing
    - Gervinho: fantastic signing
    - Zog: would love to see him back in B&W
    - We defo need at least 1 good striker… Would prefer Berbatov, but we have to be realistic; thet will never happen

    - Barton: hope he never wears a B&W shirt again. If that really was him on Twitter. He is a bomb waiting to explode. He had a descent season, but let’s be honnest the last couple of games he was average at best.

    - I hope ENrique stays, but only if he plays with his heart for the club, not like the last couple fo games.

    - For the rest I think it is going to be a very interesting transfer period.

    HWTL!!!

  • 295 09nufc09 // May 30, 2011 at 9:52 PM

    This george lad on twitter is spouting shite just repeating what cwarr has said weeks ago and adding shite about tiotes contract, im sure i read sumwhere that they dont do release clauses in this country but in continental europe players have to have them in their contacts, ronaldo has one in for 1 billion. People getting jelous of cwarr07 and trying to replicate, only trouble is cwarr has a proven record of getting a fair few spot on.

  • 296 Mancgeordie // May 30, 2011 at 9:52 PM

    tiote clause seems like it could be true 25m for a dm is alot would’nt want to see him leave but 25m?? didn’t masherano go to barce for 22m or alonso for 14m and khedira was around 22m i think and he had a brilliant w/c

  • 297 belfastgeordie87 // May 30, 2011 at 9:52 PM

  • 336 Toon1978 // May 30, 2011 at 10:35 PM

    The rumours are mad. Can’t take all of this. Think i’ll go te bed lol. Now people have mentioned that we have had a bid accepted for Sturridge i am well happy. Even if its porkies its still a good rumour lol.

  • 337 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 10:35 PM

    reo-coker as cover would be better than Smith.

  • 338 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 10:39 PM

    Mark Douglas wont say a word about it because its in tomorrows paper CheickTiote mate apparently news on both Gervinho and Gamerio in tomorrows journal :)

    haha Andy I dont think nufcinsideinfo liked our questions haha

  • 339 Tinman // May 30, 2011 at 10:39 PM

    Tiote 24.4 million buyout clause is simply ridiculous, we bought the lad for 20 million less……………….. If he had a buyout clause it would more like be 7-10 million imo

  • 340 t00ntime // May 30, 2011 at 10:40 PM

    haha WWJBD is filling twitter with questions about transfers and sources. :P good on ye mate remember what ever you find out post here…

    i just had a great idea :P tomorrow night everyone on newcastle blog will make a twitter account. and all at the same time we will send cwarr and douglas tweets asking : about gervinho barnetta zogbia and gamiero lol

    they cant ignore bout 350 tweets xD

  • 341 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 10:42 PM

    toontime you’d just get blocked!

  • 342 NagoyaNUFC // May 30, 2011 at 10:42 PM

    might be a good idea there toontime. but off to bed now! HWTL!

  • 343 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 10:43 PM

    toontime: and also about Sturridge

  • 344 Toon1978 // May 30, 2011 at 10:43 PM

    We have all went tweeting mad!

  • 345 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 10:43 PM

    WWJBD it’s very suspicous 2 new “sources” have appeared out of no where tonight! Don’t trust either of them really

  • 346 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 10:43 PM

    haha I will toontime if I ever find anything out from any of them. Apparently Gervinho is going to be our striker and Ben Afra and Gutti are going to be on the wings according to nufcinsideinfo….interesting eh haha

    Sounds a good idea…they cant block us all

  • 347 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 10:43 PM

    a want Sturridge at us more than any other striker weve been linked with

  • 348 t00ntime // May 30, 2011 at 10:44 PM

    look up mike ashley on twitter XD i think some mackem made it as all his tweets are bad jokes but hey it makes for a funny read like this :
    Q. What did Nick Frost say to the woman who dropped her groceries in the street?

    A. Nothing, he dragged her into the bushes and raped her

    like i said bad jokes but seems like something mike would say in an interview ( thats why he doesnt do them :P )

    ( o i dont hate mike before I start a war lol )

  • 349 gorskino10 // May 30, 2011 at 10:44 PM

    My name is linked blue with my Twitter Add me i post football source rumours too :D

    Mancgeordie@

    True and that relevant IF that deal for Tiote turns to be true and Andy but not for Jose and not for Barton who will leave on the cheap.

  • 350 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 10:46 PM

    Andy totally agree both seem like bullsh*ters to me…hence why I have started questioning them which I dont normally bother with but cant be on with these up starts

  • 351 t00ntime // May 30, 2011 at 10:48 PM

    @WWBJD well if no one else does it there will just be me and you like tonight lol

    surely that would be striking force that would beat all bottom 10 defenses maybe even the bigboys

    but now i wonder will zogbia be back up or will zogbia replace guthi if we get him ?? hmmmm
    lol

  • 352 NUFC STEVE // May 30, 2011 at 10:48 PM

    On the mackems!!!!
    Seen the worst rumour ever on Newcastle Rumours.com
    They’re gonna go for Ameobi and chopra!!!!
    Did u ever hear such crap?????

  • 353 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 10:49 PM

  • 355 t00ntime // May 30, 2011 at 10:52 PM

    gorskino10 i would just say a source this guy aint joking ask cwarr xD

    nufcsteve lets hope sunderland do buy ameobi for around 10mil xD now that would be a good trade lol ameobi for gervinho

  • 356 nightfa11 // May 30, 2011 at 10:53 PM

    i cant see us selling tiote.. why wouldnt he play in the last EPL matches then?

    hey Ed..did u ever try to get an interview from derek or mike personally?

    since theywe been in charge many things dont look good.. i support them..but some things really do look poor lately.. personally..if i wasnt a NUFC fan i dont know why id join nufc..cos…we get a new manager every few months..& with this new policy..does this mean every player who turns 29 should be scared to lose his job? they do send a weird message..
    im not really bothered with this barton issue..especially cos we got cabaye (congrats to mike & derek..(& pardew?) for that..he did couse us a lot of problems..had 1 good season out of 3..didnt take a paycut when he was in prison..is on huge wages..& on & on & on.. but seriously..id like to get more answers from our board..things are just weird.. like i said..if i wasnt a nufc fan i dont know why id join..were after top players..if theyre top they have a few offers on the table.. pardew seems he doesnt have a say on transfers..can be sacked soon..& what happens to players when they turn 29 or so? t

  • 357 Tinman // May 30, 2011 at 10:55 PM

    Looks to me like we are going to get: Albeid, Cabaye, Gervinho, Sturridge, Reo-Coker… Along with a relatively unknown defender.
    With Barton out as part of the Sturridge deal as they have beef

  • 358 t00ntime // May 30, 2011 at 10:55 PM

    my twitter ahh yes the name came from a time when i still believed joey would sign a new contract ahh yes the good old 2/3 days ago :P

    twitter= JB4t00n ( the 2 oo’s in toon are zero’s :P )

  • 359 norwegianmagpie // May 30, 2011 at 10:57 PM

    I remember the game where those pictures of Ben Arfa and Cabaye were taken. We were linked with Ben Arfa at the time, and he scored one hell of a goal! The goal comes after about two minutes:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_j5HXSmQLo

  • 360 WWJBD // May 30, 2011 at 10:59 PM

    Haha toontime he might yet sign you never know…..I still hold out hope haha

    Right lads am off for the night

    Keep the faith!

  • 361 norwegianmagpie // May 30, 2011 at 10:59 PM

    Pretty similar to the goal he scored against Everton! Didn’t mind getting him after that :D

  • 362 Tinman // May 30, 2011 at 11:01 PM

  • 390 boonarmy // May 30, 2011 at 11:22 PM

    Sturrdge i think from what ive been told or gameiro

  • 391 Mancgeordie // May 30, 2011 at 11:23 PM

    that was meant to say money on which striker will be leading the line? i reckon gamiero just a feeling probably wrong though

  • 392 kentonmags // May 30, 2011 at 11:24 PM

    sturrage would be class but i cant see chelsea cashing in after the season he just had at bolton

  • 393 boonarmy // May 30, 2011 at 11:25 PM

    kentonmags yeah but you think the new manager will probably buy sum 1 like falcao so there will be no room for sturridge

  • 394 Mancgeordie // May 30, 2011 at 11:27 PM

    would be happy with either sturridge or gamiero and best would be an excellent backup don’t think he is quite good enough for a first choice

  • 395 kentonmags // May 30, 2011 at 11:27 PM

    BOONARMY i agree when you put it like that and i think of all the clubs we could attract him here with our stadium and fans

  • 425 NUFC STEVE // May 30, 2011 at 11:45 PM

    Berbatov 7.5
    BA free

  • 426 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 11:45 PM

    and as far as lille are concerned its a done deal

  • 427 Mancgeordie // May 30, 2011 at 11:47 PM

    i honestly don’t know on the gervinho front whether we gona get him or not he plays rw where walcott plays so i do think if arsenal are after a rw it would be someone to play underhim rather instead off

  • 428 kevymartins // May 30, 2011 at 11:47 PM

    Lads i think this is it…..if we do sign these players and continue doing so we will become a success …i just have a good feeling about all this

  • 429 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 11:49 PM

    there could be bids for for barton in the next couple of days ??? carro07 just said

  • 431 Mancgeordie // May 30, 2011 at 11:50 PM

    toonruz gervinho and who??

  • 432 Andy // May 30, 2011 at 11:50 PM

    I would Steve! He hardly ever relies on his pace so has a good 2-4 years left at the top

  • 433 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 11:55 PM

    would snap Berba up straight away.. Berba and Ba new strikeforce for £7.5million say £8million with Ba’s signing on fee

  • 434 Mancgeordie // May 30, 2011 at 11:55 PM

    can’t see us buying berbatov to old, wages likes to play the same position as ben arfa is going to play to much could probably get adebayour for the amount you would get him for

  • 435 toonruz // May 30, 2011 at 11:56 PM

    the other french player we signed carnt remeber his name lol

  • 436 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 11:56 PM

    and Berba loves the toon and would love to be wearing the no.9… he would actually be the first person ive ever believed when at a press conference when he says hes always loved newcastle and always followed us..
    everyone else says it for whatever club tha go too but ths just cos they wana try get on the good side wheras he actually means it ha

  • 437 GeordieToon89 // May 30, 2011 at 11:57 PM

    berba is better than adebayor and adebayor is for sale at around 13/14million thats Real Madrids clause to buy him

  • 438 nightfa11 // May 30, 2011 at 11:57 PM

    berbatov is one of the laziest players in EPL.. fu*k no..avoid him.

  • 439 Mancgeordie // May 30, 2011 at 11:58 PM

    cabaye, thought you meant somebody else

  • 440 Mancgeordie // May 31, 2011 at 12:00 AM

    would prefer somebody who plays on the shoulder on the last defender with pace to create the space to allow ben arfa to play

  • 441 Mancgeordie // May 31, 2011 at 12:02 AM

    i no we would have absoulty no chance of getting him but benzema would be perfect

  • 442 toonruz // May 31, 2011 at 12:04 AM

    i thats him lol gunners fans on twitter are jealous tonight ha ha

  • 443 toonruz // May 31, 2011 at 12:07 AM

    ive just had a arguement with a gunners fan that reckons they are going to get him and he there champions leage and i said we are a team thats on the up and we are going to end up above u lot next season ; and he did not like it and i called him jealous

  • 444 connor_nufc // May 31, 2011 at 12:12 AM

    wouldnt mind berba ,.7.5 mil is a bargain

  • 445 toonruz // May 31, 2011 at 12:12 AM

    i think we would have a chance of getting benzema from madrid because of hba

  • 446 Mancgeordie // May 31, 2011 at 12:13 AM

    can’t fault you toonruz it’s not wengers style to buy gervinho he will prob go after some 18 whizz kid from a club we have never heard of who in 2 yrs time will be awesome or maybe chamberlain from southampton

  • 447 burnsie // May 31, 2011 at 12:15 AM

  • 448 toon_tomma // May 31, 2011 at 12:17 AM

    Wouldnt be suprised if we do get Berba if am honest Pardew will look at think there a 20 goal a season man, Apparently ashley wants top 10 IF and a big IF we get the likes of Gervinho N’Zogbia Gamerio or Berbetov or Sturridge do you use think Ashley will look at say a think we can get top 6 and then out presure on AP for the top 6 finish any thought lads?

  • 449 burnsie // May 31, 2011 at 12:17 AM

    MORE THAN A RT ACTUALLY….i got a reply, which is better lol.

  • 451 gorskino10 // May 31, 2011 at 12:21 AM

    Berbatov is TOO old for our board the board dont care if he is a fan or not if he is on big wages (Check) and over 28 (Check Berbatov is 30) they wont buy him.

  • 452 Mancgeordie // May 31, 2011 at 12:22 AM

    would love cabaye, hba, menez, benzema and n’zogbia in fact laurent blanc would love cabaye, hba, menez, benzema and n’zogbia playing together week in week out get him a season ticket an a scarf

    Am truly grateful and humbled as I thought Nolan, Tiote, Enrique and Collocini were all outstanding and more deserving of the award than me

  • 454 toon_tomma // May 31, 2011 at 12:25 AM

    Mancgeordie – Yer a think he is old and lazy if am honest mate but he sure now’s were that goal is and to stick a ball in the net just think Pardew might think he can score us goals and get us up the table. Dunno like a would pull all the stops out to get Sturridge like there might be a chance in it ya no with Drogba to sign a new 2/3 year deal and then Anelka Torres and they after Neymar or Sergio Aguero he going be 4th ST and he wants to play PL and think if we show him Newcastle the plan hint at the number 9 think he would bite our hand off.

    would love sturridge think given time and playing reguler he could be lethal, him or gamiero would like some pace and excellent finishiner

  • 457 Mancgeordie // May 31, 2011 at 12:30 AM

    i wish we would have spotted hernandez first he would have ticked all the boxes age, price everthing cos i reckon ben arfa can be our rooney

  • 458 toon_tomma // May 31, 2011 at 12:33 AM

    Yer agreed mate that Gamerio looks the real deal if am honest, but his heart is in Spain just didnt think Valencia would be the sort of team been able to Pay for him with all the debt there in tell ya what though if not sturridge a would love Rossi we had him on loan from Man Utd that one season didnt really play much for some reason he is a goal scorer if not him a dunno lol

  • 459 Mancgeordie // May 31, 2011 at 12:33 AM

    what about nilmar do you reckon he could be gettable??

  • 460 Mancgeordie // May 31, 2011 at 12:35 AM

    or a cheeky bid for soldado? if they got gamiero

  • 461 toon_tomma // May 31, 2011 at 12:37 AM

    2 great shouts there mate not sure how old they are only young a think think got more chance Soldado than Nilmar but iv got my heart on Gamerio Sturridge just hope who ever we get can cope with the PL here been a fair few flops in the PL who were good in other leagues we had half them haha

  • 462 gorskino10 // May 31, 2011 at 12:38 AM

    toon_tomma @

    I feel they have put Danny top of strikers list BUT they will wait on stuff first, buy winger maybe backup ST and Cabaye and LB
    Then IF Chelsea go for Neymar AND Lukaku i bet we will move in to get Danny and i rekcon he knows NUFC is the sleeping giant and the chance of him getting an iconic no9 shirt he would come to us.

  • 463 toon_tomma // May 31, 2011 at 12:40 AM

    You no iv just been thinking there if am honest a wouldnt mind a cheeky bid in for Shane Long he can score goals fair enough he in championship but he might just need one team to take a gamble on him and he could be a gem put him in a team who create chances a think he would score and better than Shola Loven and the kids works hard and runs all day.

  • 464 toon_tomma // May 31, 2011 at 12:43 AM

    gorskino10 – Yer a rekon that mate it is exciting times like for a change haha a still dont think the N’Zogbia transfer crack is real think we went for him because we sold Carroll and we nearly panic bought but who doesnt when ya lose ya top forward still then a think wigan is wanting like 12m a think there is better player for cheaper. and with Long a rekon only pay about 5/6m max

  • 465 Mancgeordie // May 31, 2011 at 12:44 AM

    hernandez proves to me that if they do have the pace and timing you can play any league we just need someone to stretch defenses and help us keep the ball better, like i said before my dream lineup which are all possible some alot more than others
    ———tiote———-cabaye–
    menez——-benarfa——n’zogbia-
    —————-benzema————–
    all french(except tiote but he speaks french) but who cares that would be awesome

  • 466 Toonarmy1993 // May 31, 2011 at 12:46 AM

    the sun is saying were after berbatov for £7.5million – yes please! http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/sport/football/3609393/Newcastle-eye-Man-Utd-ace-Berbatov.html he’s already been spotted holding a toon shirt as well, look… haha http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/sport/football/article365647.ece

  • 467 nick_9 // May 31, 2011 at 12:47 AM

    Benzema? Really? That’s a bit optimistic. if I suggested that to fans of other clubs I would get totally laughed at. The names being branded about are great but none are confirmed toon players yet. We appear to be heading in the right direction like but whilst nothing is confirmed I wont be getting overly excited. I have every faith in our scouts to find players for good value and hopefully our signings will show the current crop of players how ambitious we are. It would be nice if the deals did go through early so they have preseason together.

  • 468 Mancgeordie // May 31, 2011 at 12:54 AM

    I did say some are more gettable than others but if you did manage to get the others and put an offer in who is to say he would turn it down i reckon you would have a slim chance make him think, if you had the other 4 players bet blanc would like him to move?? but at the moment nobody really knows what deals have already been

  • 469 Mancgeordie // May 31, 2011 at 12:54 AM

    done

  • 470 toon_tomma // May 31, 2011 at 12:55 AM

    Aw a forgot were has all this transfer talk about Menez he is a good player and my team would be this if we do all deals and player stay lol……

    ………………………….Forster……………………………

    Gosling………Taylor………Colocini………Enrique

    ………………Tiote……Nolan……Cabaye…………..

    ……………..Gervinho………..Ben Arfa……………..

    …………………………Sturridge………………………..

    Subs:

    Harper
    Simpson
    Williomson
    Ferguson
    Jones
    Barton
    Best

    The reason iv gone with Forster because a think he will give him a gd pre season and see how he does, Gosling RB because Pardew himself said that his best postion plus play a tun of games for everton there and nolan iv gone for cause everyone seems to be leaving nolan out there team nolan scores goal he got 12 for us this season and a think if barton was to play in there it wouldnt give us options going forward tiote cabaye would hold in the mid then ya got gervinho ben afra sturridge forward then nolan in that little bit of pocket (the hole) like the Barca formation really

  • 471 toon_tomma // May 31, 2011 at 12:58 AM

    and gosling himself said he doesnt mind playing rb but his fav poss is CM but can u really see him getting there a dont lol a think Simmo is gd player but no comp to challenge him plus think simmo get beat far to often think gosling wud slip right in there plus gosling going be like a new signing

  • 472 Mancgeordie // May 31, 2011 at 1:02 AM

    i see your thinking but this would work if we did get berbatov
    ———————tiote———————-
    ——-cabaye————–nolan——-
    gervinho———————-benarfa—–
    —————–berbatov——————–
    that would allow berbatov to drop off ben arfa and gervinho to drive in at goal cabaye and nolan to push into the box abit like chelsea played under mourinho

  • 473 Mac // May 31, 2011 at 1:05 AM

    Being a prison officer sat on a hospital bed watch. These comments are keeping me going. Fantastic. Keep up the good work boys,

  • 474 Mancgeordie // May 31, 2011 at 1:05 AM

    but i reckon we will get n’zogbia back but i honestly don’t know about gervinho or who the striker will be i do reckon though there is going to be some big changes to our squad this summer

  • 475 toon_tomma // May 31, 2011 at 1:06 AM

    Yer a see something like that aswell mate we will play some sort of 433 or 451 or something anyway wish could stay and chat but gunna get some food before a start shitty work in 51mintues lol finish at 10 thou last time put my name down for over time on nights like haha only till wed thank good speak soon lads and……..

    Mancgeordie – Agreed mate massive changes

  • 478 GeordieToon89 // May 31, 2011 at 1:26 AM

    has someone on twitter really said wer after Benzema

  • 479 gorskino10 // May 31, 2011 at 1:49 AM

    toon_tomma@
    I just dont feel our club will pay 10M for NZogbia, at that price they would look elsewhere for a better winger at a better price, i reckon a Winger they scouted in France like Marvin Martin etc.. and quotes under 7M they’ll go for him over NZog anyday.

  • 480 Nufc_mo // May 31, 2011 at 1:49 AM

    Benzema?
    Id love whatever that fella is smoking…
    Way out of our league….

    On to the next winger!

  • 481 GeordieToon89 // May 31, 2011 at 1:59 AM

    Barnetta/Menez for 6million instead of Zogbia then thats 4million added to the Striker Fund

  • 482 Nufc_mo // May 31, 2011 at 2:10 AM

    Jose Enrique has just gone back on Facebook (were majority of people listed on his friendslist are Geordies/Adopted Geordies :P )

    Maybe a sign of his intentions of staying? Or a farewell to the fans?

  • 483 Nufc_mo // May 31, 2011 at 2:22 AM

    Strikers id love to come to the toon

    1. Sturridge
    2. Berbatov
    3. Park Chu Young
    4. Loïc Rémy
    5. Lisandro López

  • 486 davis_toons // May 31, 2011 at 3:31 AM

    “Manchester United have an option to extend Berbatov’s deal by a year, they are in no rush to do so”

    Berbatov, 30, -

    Contract these days are not for pension.

    We need players that can help the club move forward, stronger every year

  • 487 nightfa11 // May 31, 2011 at 4:03 AM

    wtfs wrong with u?

    BERABTOV IS:

    1.30 y.o.
    2.lazy (actually cant run cos he smokes 2 packs a day)
    3. inconsisten: 1 match he scores 5 goals & on other he misses 5 sitters
    4. we plan to play fast attacking football..which he cant
    5.is on huge wages
    6.would cost 10 mio

    seriously guys..think before u write…its not in stats…sure..he scored 20 goals..but in like 7 matches..in others it was just painful to watch him..

  • 488 davis_toons // May 31, 2011 at 4:10 AM

    Highly Rated Player
    Iker Muniain Vs Romelu Lukaku

    Iker Muniain seems good

  • 489 ilovetoon8788 // May 31, 2011 at 4:20 AM

    Gervinho now Benzema. The over optimism and surrealistic views are hilarious here. It’s ok, we Newcastle fans hadn’t have a chance to dream in a long time. And now’s the best time. Just don’t be distraught when either of them move to another club.

  • 490 Nufc_mo // May 31, 2011 at 4:31 AM

    @ilovetoon8788

    Whats with all the negativity concerning Gervinho. Imho he we have a very good chance of landing him…

    Gervinho has decided that he wants to leave Lille, and the only two clubs in the EPL to show proper interest in him are

    Arsenal and Newcastle.

    Factors that work in Newcastle’s favour:

    1. We can pay the full fee upfront
    2. Gaurenteed first team football
    3. We are assembling a french footballing army
    4. Arsenal’s priorities are not forwards… they need to strengthen their defence
    5. The only way arsenal would submit a bid for Gervinho is if they could raise funds from the sale of Arshavin
    6. Arshavin has said he has vowed to stay at Arsenal for another season (where will they get the funds now?)
    7. Cheick Tiote (Good mates with Gervinho)and possibly didier drogba (who had a role in convinving tiote to come to the epl) are more then likely convincing Gervinho to join
    8. His team mate Cabaye has joined Newcastle

    All these factors will play a part in Gervinho’s decision, and they are strongly in our favor…

  • 491 davis_toons // May 31, 2011 at 4:32 AM

    In this video, HBA scores in the same way as how he do it for Newcastle.

    BTW, @RomanXArmani (youtube) you sucks.
    Pls respect other supporters club.

    Just remb when Newcastle beat Barcelona 3-2. You might still be in your diapers.

    Sturridge is superb for us, I rock on ! I hope we have enough English man in our team next season and the most important thing is spirit in dressing room. We cannot afford to lose it !

    Lads, just a quickie as I’m off on my travels again, cwarro, three weeks ago!! ‘ joeys contract is agreed, will sign next week’ alas no signing, tweeter….thought you said Barton was signing new contract Colin? Warris ‘it was only a verbal agreement’ tweeter…so who told you that it was all agreed? BLOCKED!

    All you followers of the Warris cult, ( yes it is spelled correct) take heed! He will say Gervinho broke down at last minute! It’s the way he works, but every close season his followers increase greatly and he loves his flock….. Pfft

  • 497 Toonfan8 // May 31, 2011 at 7:23 AM

    why Berbatov, especially when there is Djibrill Cisse for free? he played EPL, similar goals a season and also French player, very good pace…

  • 498 GeordieToon89 // May 31, 2011 at 7:31 AM

    News about Gameiro
    http://www.nufcblog.org/2011/05/gameiro-likely-to-be-lining-up-in-black-and-white-next-season/?

  • 503 The Entertainers // May 31, 2011 at 8:39 AM

    Interesting close season, with info coming in all the time.
    Still
    Strong rumours regarding Gervinho and today’s Journal has a slightly different slant , stating we’ll sign one or the other when it comes to Garmiero and Gervinho, with KG being the number one target and still a possibility.

    With the apparent £30 plus million we have, why not sign both and Zog. Real statement of intent and I know a lot of fans will ‘be’ disappointed if Pards doesn’t get to spend near that amount!

  • 504 MykToonFan // May 31, 2011 at 8:54 AM

    I don’t entirely believe that article in the Journal.

    We have shown a huge interest in both players for a long time now – I think both are clear targets, not one or the other. We certainly SHOULD be trying to get both – they’ll inject the “pace, athleticism and quality” which Pardew says we need.

    Whether we CAN get them or not is a different matter, of course.

  • 505 NottsGeordie // May 31, 2011 at 8:58 AM

    I hope we can get them. Things havent been as exciting on Tyneside since Bobby Robson. Alan Pardew has to take massive credit and so has Mike Ashley. I love watching attacking flair football and this is what we will be watching next season :)

    Imo regardless of which ever one we sign (Gervinho / Gameiro) i would NOT bring both to Newcastle…

    Id much rather get 1 of them and then a player like Sturridge..

    Imo we need 1 EPL proven striker, with all these rumours i wouldnt be surprised if our most attacking EPL experienced forward was Nolan / Tiote…

  • 509 Shearers-Island // May 31, 2011 at 9:04 AM

    I hope its not true ‘cos if we have ‘put all our eggs in one basket’ and hang on for ages while Gameiro makes a decision you can be sure we’ll lose both. Hopefully fatty has realised that he needs to take our thin squad up a few notches. Glad we dont seem to be looking at Larrson now. never been impressed and id prefer what we already have in midfield. I also think that Bartons new found Twitter fame will either make or break a new contract. If he keeps slagging off owner and having a dig at new signings he’ll be sold or told to piss off for breaking the team spirit he has worked so hard in building up. However, if the board realise what a massive loss the fans are feeling, they might put a new offer together. Its gonna be a long window this one…..

  • 510 alex84 // May 31, 2011 at 9:10 AM

    not sure who to believe now, cwarr says its a done deal for gervinho, the journal saying its either gameiro or gervinho…not both!, not sure!

  • 511 The Entertainers // May 31, 2011 at 9:11 AM

    I have worries about Gamiero if I’m honest, he looks a cracking player in the French league but have major concerns about his ability in the PL at the moment.
    He currently plays for a provincial side and is a big fish in a little pond.
    Players like Guivarch and Chamak give me’ room for concern, as the striker position is the hardest of all positions to transfer your talent from one league to another.
    And yes you can quote Henry and Cantona but they had played for bigger clubs ( granted with varying success )
    Would ‘be’ far more happy with Sturridge, than either Gamiero or Erding and go for broke on Gervinho, who had the air of a superstar in the making.

  • 512 JAMSHA // May 31, 2011 at 9:13 AM

    Flushed with the success of landing Lille’s French international midfielder Yohan Cabaye last week, United’s next target is to bring in a striker, and they are now leading the chase for Lorient’s coveted star Gameiro.

    Agree with the Entertainers

    Shift our interest off Gameiro and shove it all towards Sturridge!

  • 514 davybtoon // May 31, 2011 at 9:29 AM

    the journal no nothing specially when they say gervinho is striker when hes a winger

  • 515 JAMSHA // May 31, 2011 at 9:34 AM

    Davybtoon agree.

  • 516 kentonmags // May 31, 2011 at 9:35 AM

    JAMSHA how do i change my pic on the side

  • 517 MykToonFan // May 31, 2011 at 9:42 AM

    Agreed with Davybtoon.

    If we only signed Gervinho, we’d still need strikers.

    I’d gladly take Sturridge, but I can’t see Chelsea letting him go. He’s performed too well when on loan.

    Gameiro and Gervinho may not be English, but they are young and creative. It worries me that if we don’t get them (having scouted them for so long) we’ll be forced to fight for scraps – Cole, Keane and others spring to mind.
