Newcastle Could Lose Both Nolan And Barton This Summer

1:58 pm, Monday, June 6th, 2011 by Ed Harrison · 286 Comments

More surprising news today from Newcastle is that captain Kevin Nolan has rejected a new deal at Newcastle United.

Kevin Nolan – Newcastle must keep their captain

So we wonder what exactly is going on with some players at Newcastle as a week ago Joey Barton wasn’t even offered a new deal at Newcastle, and now Kevin has turned his deal down.

So we suppose now Newcastle will need to decide whether they will increase their offer.

Newcastle have had a terrific team spirit in the side these last two years, and that’s been due to the two current leaders on Tyneside – both Liverpudlians as it turns out – Kevin Nolan and Joey Barton.

It’s all very well bringing in some top players this summer, but if Newcastle mess up and lose both Barton and Nolan, then what happens to our great team spirit?

We are more than a little concerned that Newcastle may not be playing fair with the two players, who did so much to ensure Newcastle had an excellent first season back in the Premier League.

And both lads just love the club and the area – so where is the problem – for heaven’s sake.

Answers in the comments below please – because I just don’t understand what’s going on.

Comments very welcome.

    It would be a bad news, but I can’t blame the board for protecting their money. I hope they do stay for one more season to make sure a smooth transition for the club tho

  • 9 Widowmaker // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:10 PM

    I think the main problem with Nolan is that while he is a very good player and a top captain, he is not mobile enough for Pardew’s new team.

    There is birds in my addic and they wont fook up

    any suggestions?

  • 11 supervil // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:11 PM

    NOBODY KNOWS ANYTHING BECAUSE NEITHER NOLAN NOR THE CLUB HAVE SAID OWT.

    Jesus H. Christ. Stop getting yourselves (you included Ed) in such a tizzy over non-stories based on no facts, substance or source.

  • 14 toonfan76 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:13 PM

    Agree with supervil, only Bartons contract not being renewed is the only one that is defo true cos he said so on twitter.

  • 15 deeeeeeano // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:13 PM

    Something still stinks with them 2 arseholes in charge, them 2 lads are the core of the team, the graft, the passion and are also a massive reason we are back where we belong. That commitment should have been rewarded but was it Fu@k, they don’t even want more money, no massive deals or owt just what they deserve. And them 2 ball bags in charge are taking the piss, it doesn’t matter who we get in, players like Joey and Kev need to be there. Joey should still be a starter and Kev used to push on or hold up the last half hour of a game when needed.

  • 16 the1willy // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:15 PM

    I’ve posted the same on another article, but I think that Ashley and Lambias (and possibly even Pardew), are worried about the power that these two have in the dressing room.
    When Pardew became manager he had to ‘win’ them over. I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but I think it certainly plays on the managements mind that two (or three if you include smith) are the ones ‘running’ the team.

  • 17 Novocastrian // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:15 PM

    It will be another shambles of a season if they do not sign.

  • 18 supervil // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:16 PM

    @Deeeeeeeano

    How do you know they don’t want massive deals?

    Maybe they’ve seen the support they’ve received from the fans and have used it as leverage against the board?

    Joey seems distinctly calm given his usual disposition… you’d have expected him to have kicked up more of a fuss. Not reject rumours to his boyhood club and say he will stay next season…

    Can we all just agree, that we don’t have a clue what’s going on… and in this case… there’s no door to lay any blame at… not yet anyway…

  • 19 mr.T...iote // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:18 PM

    aww ryt roshan just a remembered sum1 saying they were from india n a thought it was you lol

  • 20 shearermania // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:19 PM

    nolan will be 30 next year and still got a year left of his co ntract..hes probably on 50k a year and wont take a decrease after that….
    personal its fair a player over 30 isnt paid more than 30k….if he has a cracking season next year..he will be offered more.

  • 21 GeordieToon89 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:22 PM

    a dont think it will be a shambles atall.. yes they leaders but we can replace them.. Stevie T for captain.. bt also we got relegated with both these in our team

  • 22 supervil // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:22 PM

    Also… you’re saying we should further reward already heavily rewarded players… FOR DOING THEIR JOBS.

    I think they’ve seen the dip in form of Mike Williamson which coincided with his 5 year contract. As soon as he secured his future, his foot came off the gas.

    They’ll be worried that Barton & Nolan will become the new Owen, Duff, Carr et al. They want them to have the fear – the fear that their future is NOT secure unless they continue to do their jobs.

  • 23 estechco // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:22 PM

    Has Nolan not still got 2 years left?

    If so, I’d happily leave it for a year

  • 24 shearermania // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:22 PM

    anyway whats the news…
    have we signed gervinho?
    the swansea perch wannabe?
    cabaye?
    nzogbia?
    any news today…..

  • 25 supervil // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:22 PM

    Lest we forget… they still have contracts with the club… a lot can happen in a year…

  • 26 supervil // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:23 PM

    @estechco – exactly!

  • 27 NUFC_Richyg01 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:24 PM

    Nolan has 2 years left on his current contract so where is the panic?

    Contradictory …

  • 30 mr.T...iote // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:26 PM

    tbh look at every1 starting line ups they rite on here,, no1 has them init n at the end of the day its because with gameiro,, gervinho,, cabaye,, tiote n benny we’ll be playing fast skillful football n in all honesty wen was the last time nolan turned a defender inside out lol,, a dnt wanna see them leave tho they shud stay but IF newcastle bring in more younger english gritty players AND born leaders then unfortunately there wil be no room for them,, but to me nolan and barton have been invaluable n as a newcastle fan all never forget how they helped get us up and steadied the ship,, if it wernt for these 2 we wudnt be able to bring gervinho n cabaye in so,, thanks lads

  • 31 balubas1 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:27 PM

    yes and armageddon could be tomorrow.. what a speculative article.

    it is silly season yes, but you don’t have to go all coo-coo

  • 32 nufc90 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:28 PM

    cor some people will do anything to bash ashley…
    i’ve come on here after matches and there’s people slating nolan wanting him to go.
    as for barton he’s been bad mouthing ashley to everyone who will listen and after everything ashley’s done for him, i can’t blame him withdrawing the contract offer to him.
    i’d rather just wait until the end of the window see who we’ve brought in and then decide whether to keep them on..considering nolan is hardly the most mobile he probably won’t fit into pardew’s new fluid team. so what’s the point giving him a bumper 5yr deal to sit on the bench?

  • 33 Simo // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:29 PM

    MarcoSilva11 Marco Silva
    Newcastle did make a bid which was accepted by Lille, the player rejected and is due to have a medical Wednesday morning in London.

  • 34 the1willy // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:29 PM

    I’d like to see them both stay, but if they don’t sign new contracts I don’t think it will be the end of the world (as long as we bring in new players).
    1. As was mentioned before, they were both in the squad when we went down (where was the incredible team spirit then? Did they tell MO what a lazy money grabber he was back then?)
    2. Neither of them are spring chickens, so sooner or later we’ll lose them anyways… will that bring about the end Newcastle United?
    No one or two players, for however good they are on and/or off the pitch are bigger than the club.

  • 35 TemuriKetsbaia // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:30 PM

    On one hand we have Alan Smith who is on high wages with a year to run and almost impossible to unload, but fans want rid.

    On the other hand the same fans are saying give Barton and Nolan long contracts on high wages.

    If you want a well run club you have to play hardball with the agents. There the ones manipulating the media which in turn manipulates the fans.

    The agents are playing us off against the club to get a bigger slice of what their clients are offered.

  • 36 RUNAWAY777 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:31 PM

    Simo medical for who mate.

  • 37 Simo // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:32 PM

    Just what i’m getting off twitter from @MarcoSilva11 – Says he is due at Arsenal on Wednesday

  • 38 mr.T...iote // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:32 PM

    awww that markosilva is just a arse fan trying to make friends he knows nout

  • 39 gonz // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:34 PM

    I don’t get some of the comments about how old the players are or that they are on high wages and Cashley wants them out, when he was the one who offered the contracts in the first place.

  • 40 mr.T...iote // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:35 PM

    a mean has markosilva called anything rite,,, just a lonely loser if you ask me like

  • 41 RUNAWAY777 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:35 PM

    Simo i that will be right,all these on hear thinking hes comming will be in for a shock,if he turn up hear i will say a big sorry

  • 42 Simo // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:36 PM

    Lets hope you’re right Mr.T…iote … I guess only time will tell …

  • 43 kevymartins // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:37 PM

    Dont get 2 big headed lads… there is still a good chance he will go to arsenal

  • 50 gonz // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:41 PM

    Like I said before, this could end up like the Modric transfer, we all thought that one was in the bag utnil the 11th hour he went to Tottenscum, this could happen with Gervinho

  • 51 nufc90 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:42 PM

    i can’t see wenger bidding 15mil straight up anyway… i think that’d be a new transfer record for them

  • 52 mr.T...iote // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:43 PM

    tds a dnt know that n tbh am sceptical about every twatter but at the end of the day we have more substance to him cuming to us with the echo story meanwhile markosilva is the only thing they have

  • 53 alex84 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:44 PM

    Mr.T…iote, your right some people would rather us sign rubbish just to have a moan! Gervinho signing for nufc shows are intent and how we want to push forward, our scouts havent been around europe for a holiday!!

  • 54 Solaidback // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:44 PM

    toonfan76 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:13 PM

    Agree with supervil, only Bartons contract not being renewed is the only one that is defo true cos he said so on twitter
    ————————————————————
    Is this classed an a double oxymoron???

    How can you put Barton, Twitter & True in the same sentence. lol lol ;)

  • 55 RUNAWAY777 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:45 PM

    MR T i have been a nufc for over 30 years so dont you dear tell me that iam not a true fan,i have seen more then you mate.

  • 56 scottoon // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:47 PM

    @temuri – too right! The agents use the media to spin up their prized possessions so they can fatten their own wallets. Said on another thread that the agents prob saying to Kev, Joey, Jose…be patient lads…if they get new blood in you get to say you were waiting to see the club’s ambition, at the same time they get a new measuring stick for their own wage packet. Can’t see an agent advising to sign now.

    Fact is the club has opened negotiations with players who are already under contract…that’s a good sign. We are linked with some fantastic talent…another good sign. Watch it all fall into place when Cabaye is announced. Gervinho to follow…then the new contracts get signed.

    I’m feeling good!

  • 57 mr.T...iote // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:49 PM

    awww RUNAWAY777 a reli cudnt care less how long youve supported then tbh that wasnt the point a was making… mayyte

  • 58 Tino99 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:50 PM

    Why didnt we try to sign this guy – Van Wolfswinkel He has joined Sporting. Supposedly picking him up for around 5mil

    Good player

  • 59 alex84 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:53 PM

    the suspense is killing me man!!

  • 60 Milzzy Rascal // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:55 PM

    Krul

    Simpson- Collo- S Taylor- Enrique

    Tiote——-Cabaye

    Gervinho——Ben Arfa——-Jonas

    Gameiro

    If only my little dream could come true!!

  • 61 scottoon // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:58 PM

    I like it Milzzy. Swap out Simmo for a new signing, or maybe it will be Tavernier, and you have a side I would love to see. While we’re at it, give me Sturridge instead of Gameiro.

  • 62 RUNAWAY777 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:59 PM

    by the way mr t them is spelled like this haha,grow up man.

  • 63 GeordieToon89 // Jun 6, 2011 at 2:59 PM

    just thinkin if Gervinho’s agent has said something then whys sky sports not got the story up seens as though they’ve been following it aswel

  • 64 toonfan76 // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:00 PM

    Ok solaidback fair comment, just cos i heard that barton’s twitter account was legit and he said he hadn’t been given a new contract to sign. All the other stuff with Ranger and Nolan hasn’t been confirmed or denied by anyone yet, or have I missed something?

  • 65 NK // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:04 PM

    Milzzy Rascal , N’Zogbia instead of Jonas then that team would be perfect

  • 66 GeordieToon89 // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:05 PM

    anyone else seen Valencia want Klose to partner Soldado upfront.. could tht mean their dnt want Gameiro anymore

  • 67 mr.T...iote // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:06 PM

    awww hahaha hahaha well dun RUNAWAY777 you wanna play the spelling game
    you put dear instead of dare
    hear instead of here
    plus this sentence makes no sence whatsoever “if he turn up hear i will say a big sorry”

    @GeordieToon89 // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:05 PM

    It certainly is strange why SkySports is not putting up a word regarding us and Gervinho. Maybe they know there could be complications? Not sure but i sense something fishy in the Gervinho deal.

    And Valencia is in debt and i don’t think they can outbid clubs that are after Gamiero. But that doesn’t mean Gamiero will come to us. There are clubs after him as well.

  • 71 RUNAWAY777 // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:12 PM

  • 84 Dannyo // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:23 PM

    The whole Barton and Nolan ordeal is down to pure business. (Nolan is still silent, so thats assumptions anyway)
    MA wants most possible bang for his buck, if they’re going to perform for 1 or 2 more years, then there’s no point in extending their contracts. As it would be costly and time consuming. As for Barton, he has a lousy history, and he has been the reason for why we haven’t been able to go after a couple of players. Just cause we wear stripes, doesn’t mean we value jailbirds. He had a good year, and so did Nolan, so the reasonable thing to do is to extend their contracts.
    Barton said it best: “They want a younger, better, cheaper me.” If we can do that, with lower wages, and heighten the clubs attractiveness, why shouldn’t we?
    People say its bad people practice, but in the end, they are objects which u buy and sell to gain stature and profit.
    It’s cynical, but its true.

  • 85 Enigma // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:24 PM

    Personally I don’t see an issue with Nolan not being offered or turning down a new deal.

    He’s 29 and has 2 years left on his current deal let him see it out and move him on.

    Fantastic captain so let’s have him for 2 more years then say thank you ver much and replace him with someone younger.

  • 101 Sav // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:40 PM

    Dannyo, the answeer is because you can have a policy of buying your, saleable assets, but to build a successful team you need some experienced older heads – like Joey and Nolan.
    Personally, I reckon this smells more of Llambias and Ashley union-busting and stamping their idea of discipline (Ranger) more than footballing decisions.
    Squeezing out Barton and Nolan sounds like the player equivalent of breaking up the singing section, because you don’t particularly like the songs when they are about you. Barton and Nolan represent respect to the players in the changing room. If Ashley can’t control it, he sees it as a threat and he’ll break it up.

    Whats this crack from the oracle on twitter saying theres supposed to be confirmation on Gervinho at some point this afternoon?

    Its my rule of thumb to not listen to a word thats said from the twatters but I bloody wish just this once they’re bang on lol.

    Newcastle Made £15million bid but Arsenal have had a restructured bid accepted and Gervinho is flying to London on wednesday for medical at St.Albans training ground. Tranquillo Barnetta will be just as good for £7.5 million not forgetting Ben Arfa. We need to focus on Strikers, At worst we could get by next season with our wingers. Danny Graham although a Geordie and Shane Long will struggle,

  • 108 WWJBD // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:45 PM

  • 111 P.I. // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:47 PM

    Can anyone remember an earlier thread, where a myseterious individual going by the pseudonym of ‘Beardo’ posted responses regarding some of the Transfer dealings.
    I can recall being particularly sceptical, but i’ve noticed he hasnt posted on any other threads since.
    In addition, he mentioned that both Barton and Nolan would have contract disputes and would leave the club in the summer, he did say that we wouldnt be too worried though as we were in for an exciting couple of weeks and the club had been working hard to bring some big names in.
    I would love to think it was Peter The Great, sat at home, agonising over some of the posts he’d been reading, and unable to take it any longer he musters up the courage to create an account; under the guise of ‘beardo’ and starts to type.

  • 112 toonruz // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:48 PM

  • 115 Nufc_mo // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:51 PM

    Wouldnt be surprised if Barnetta’s price has increased, and I reckon Nufc should give up on Gameiro…Very unlikely he will sign.

  • 116 GeordieGerman // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:51 PM

    Hi lads, more of the same here. No real substantive news. Although I did ask why we where interested in so many mid-fielders? On Friday and answered myself with the probable departure of Nolan and Barton. Can’t say I’m happy about being probably right though.

  • 117 Mancgeordie // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:52 PM

  • 120 P.I. // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:54 PM

    Gervinho spotted at Blyth Spartans training ground. Must be gonna sign for those guys.

    Haway lads man!
    We cant rely on any of these sources. Nobody knows for sure who is going where, and until we hear an announcment made on SKY SPORTS then everything is still up in the air.

  • 121 toonruz // Jun 6, 2011 at 3:54 PM

    There is no way that was Peter Beardsley. No way in hell. Because Peter is a demi god and spends most time fighting evil in between coaching the reserves. And my mates uncle’s mom’s sister’s father says he have really poor internet connection.

    But, that last bit of info could be wrong! So there’s still a chance!

    Hope Nolan and Barton stays btw.. They bring some true grit to the team.

    Ha-ha that made me laugh mate. Yeah im almost 100% certain it wasnt the man himself, but it ammused me to picture him becomming so disillusioned at our posts, that he felt compelled to relay his views.

    Funnier still to imagine him cursing at his dodgy internet connection while desperately trying to reason with us.

  • 129 breadman // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:01 PM

  • 130 Enigma // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:02 PM

    Geordie German – I really wish you could… :-(

    This may get me shot down but I can see Best and Shola scoring goals next year with Jonas, Gervinho and Ben Afra behind either.

  • 131 GeordieGerman // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:04 PM

    Enigma, Sturridge will be at Newcastle next year…

    … Probably playing against us. But he will be there.

  • 132 Nufc_mo // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:04 PM

    Lads update

    NEWCASTLE have accepted a 9.5million offer from QPR for their star forward Foluwashola “Shola” Ameobi
    The Nigerian born 29 year old forward managed to net an impressive 9 goals in 30 Appearences for the Magpies last season.

    Pardew is apparantly reluctant to sell his prized forward to Premier League rivals QPR, especially after losing first choice forward Andy Carrol to Liverpool last January for a fee of 35million
    Pardew believes that Ameobi is the right man to lead the Toon next season and is apparantly willing to offer him the number 9 shirt in a bid to keep the highly sought after forward on Tyneside.
    Newcastle boss Alan Pardew appears to have won the race to sign Lille’s £10million rated winger Gervinho.

    The Ivory Coast international is set to depart the French Champions in the summer and he is now expected to join Newcastle, where he would link up with international team-mate Cheik Tiote.
    Gervinho’s agent has revealed his client will open talks with a Newcastle this week and a deal could be completed by the end of the week.

  • 133 toon_tomma // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:05 PM

    this lad on twitter reckons we will deffo 110% hear about Gervinho as NUFC player the day lol hope this lad is right like never belived anything of twitter yet and never will but if this happens then he been spot on lol

  • 134 WWJBD // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:05 PM

    I still reckon gervinho will be played as a striker for us if we get him

    Oracle is clown, he’s never right he says every day Gervinho will announce who he is going to and he never does… He doesnt have a clue and claims he works for the BBC…. yeah.. right.

    We should definitely sign Nolan up, he was the top scoring midfielder last season and I’m sorry but I gurantee that other 10m wonder midfield signings wont match those 12 goals.

    HWTL

  • 142 GeordieGerman // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:09 PM

    Nufc_mo, it’ll be a first. I hope Shola doesn’t read that last “report”. He’ll be in total panic.

  • 143 Enigma // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:10 PM

    If we do sign Gervinho we can’t play him out of position.

    That’s too Fat Shamish for me.

    Strange but Kev was saying how proud he was to play at Newcastle. How he loves the club, the fans, the city. How his son is a born Geordie. And you think “he’s here till he retires and longer”. Then you read a week later about him rejecting a new deal. Then it hits you. All players at every club, seem “to wax lyrical” (sorry Ed) about their clubs before they leave.

  • 160 Zangwill_Ho // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:21 PM

    NUFC have money , so there is no reason why NUFC cannot increase their salary or better contract to Nolan and Barton. Right, Ed? do you get it?

  • 161 ToonDownSouth // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:21 PM

    Ochytoon, why? Lol

    Because he hasn’t? There’s no more explaination than that.

    The northern echo genuinely MADE UP that his agent had said he would. And now everyone thinks he will.

  • 162 Nufc-83 // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:21 PM

    NK he scored a large number of them goals playing as a second st so lets not get ahead of ourselves. I think Barton got about five playing mostly from right mid so i would say he would have scored not far off 12 if he had played as a second st. How many assists does nolan get not many so the onlything i will miss from nolan is his leadership qualities on the pitch.

  • 163 Nufc_mo // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:22 PM

    ah yes… my bad… how could i forget…

    LOLS thanks!!!

    they dont air it over in singapore :(

  • 164 Enigma // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:24 PM

    Transfer window for all transfers is June 1st – September 1st (someone always sneaks a transfer through)

    It’s the international games which are holding everything up plus the travelling.

  • 165 NK // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:26 PM

    NUFC-83, you need to remember that Barton takes ALL the set pieces as well; compare him to Laurent Robert who played in the same position and more or less had the same role, exactly no comparison!

    I’m not being negetive as I’ve told everyone I will behave but I believe that Barton is overrated, his set pieces aren’t top draw and I dont think he has scored a single goal from a freekick which is expected from your freekick taker, and u cant say he didnt try and shoot, he would try a shot from a freekick at least once a game… Also barton scored 3 goals from penalties. Nolan however is very much underrated and he is 10x more worthy to sign a contract then Barton. If we manage to pull all of our transfers of I concede that it would be unlikely that he’ll be able to tie a position down, but with the amount of injuries we get he’ll definitely get his fair share of games, and is vital for the team morale.

    Remember what Barton said: individuals do not win games, teams do.

  • 166 NK // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:28 PM

    ToonDownSouth, shutup you have no clue about the deal and you can’t just make bold statements claiming that the northernecho made it up.

  • 167 Young_Mag // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:30 PM

    I rekon its important we get Nolan & Barton tied down not asap, I think these two are indespensible in a way due to what they offer for the team spirit

    On another note doesn’t look like Gamerio will be going to Valencia there signing Klose for Bayern

  • 168 belfast // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:31 PM

    arsenal fans seem to think his agent said he was joining arsenal.

  • 169 ToonDownSouth // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:32 PM

    NK, I think everyone would rather you didn’t contribute to this blog if you’re just going to be abusive.

    The echo claimed that his agent had told the French press he would be negotiating a deal with Newcastle.

    Yes there is NOTHING in the French press to suggest this.

    So NK, you’ve decided, in all your wisdom, that he is not going to sign for Arsenal.

    “not going to happen”

    I would say that is also a bold statement, given that he has previously expressed that Arsenal would be his dream move, and that he wants CL football.

    Bold statement indeed.

  • 174 NK // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:35 PM

    I know he’s not going to sign for Arsenal because Arsenal have not made a bid, doesn’t take a genius to work out that he isn’t signing for a club which haven’t even made an approach for him.

  • 180 Eastander // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:38 PM

    Were looking at primarily attacking targets from foreign leagues, the only mention of someone new to our defence is a left back whos quite good in the championship and we shipped quite a few goals last season, far too many at home! I hope were not going to try the you score 3 we’ll score 4 tactic with strikers that are unproven in the premier league or we may be in bother. Personal opinion

    Look at this for e.g:

    ‘Ochytoon, why? Lol

    Because he hasn’t? There’s no more explaination than that.’

    You call that not patronising?

    And I know Arsenal haven’t made a bid because every report in the land about Gervinho have said Newcastle have made a bid and Arsenal haven’t. There are also other reports which state that they would only buy him if Arshavin left… which he hasnt. L’Equipe a very reliable french paper have said the same that they are yet to register a bid.

    So I’m pretty certain they haven’t…

    Don’t be so arrogant as to assume you know anything about me.

    General question- how many people on here are actually from Newcastle and go the games?

  • 209 Toon1978 // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:57 PM

    Gervinho not bloody signed yet ffs lol???? Heard something about his agent saying he ic going to NUFC.

  • 210 GeordieToon89 // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:57 PM

    well if we sign donavan that would only help the cause a suppose he’s a hell of a player

  • 211 ToonDownSouth // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:58 PM

    Anyone else think it’s strange that we haven’t heard a word from Pardew since the Barton thing kicked off?????

    I’m actually missing his usual verbal diarrhea!

  • 212 Geordiedoonsooth // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:59 PM

    Don’t see what the panic is over Nolan & Barton we don’t ahve to start negotiating with Barton until Xmas (ala Steve Taylor) & Barton until xmas 2012.

  • 214 NK // Jun 6, 2011 at 4:59 PM

    haha not trying to be snooty or anything but Bath University isn’t even ranked in the top 100 in the world. I studied Engineering at UCL which is ranked in the top 10, then went to Colombia University in New York for my 3rd year. I won’t have any undergraduate pons trying to disrespect me and patronise me like he does…

    Also a intelligent person would know that ” ” are only used when quoting dialogue and that ‘ ‘ are used for quoting phrases.

  • 228 gonz // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:06 PM

  • 229 Eastander // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:07 PM

    unless newcastle are going to sign a player from Bath or UCL or Gervinho has signed for the toon is going to appear in ‘ ‘ or ” ” on sky sports i dont really care

  • 230 gonz // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:08 PM

    Nasri says he could join Man Utd this year….Hmmmm wonder what that means about the Gervinho situation

  • 231 Stuart // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:08 PM

    What makes you so high and mighty kingkev mate?

    Don’t assume you’re more of a fan than anyone else on here because they don’t answer your pointless questions.

    What does it matter where supporters are from?

  • 232 Toon1978 // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:08 PM

    Hope Barton and Nolan stay for the sake of the club.As for Gervinho, i have never knons a player to take so long in making a decision. Seems to me he is waiting for better offer. F..k him lets move on.

  • 233 ToonDownSouth // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:08 PM

    “Also a intelligent person would know that ” ” are only used when quoting dialogue and that ‘ ‘ are used for quoting phrases.”

    Wooooow. I think that you’re a little too up yourself for this board mate. It’s about football, not English language.

    You started arguing with me for patronizing ochy, and then when he didn’t have a problem, moved on to insult my University and my intelligence?

    I’m studying Mathematics, and when I joined bath it was 4th for that subject (by the Times ranking). I also turned down Warwick. Bath is the most beautiful place I have been to in England, and that was key to my choice.

    If you are going to get all snooty, and imply that we are lesser people than you because we did not go to a top top university, then do it somewhere else.

  • 234 mr.T...iote // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:09 PM

    kingkev sorry but shut the f**k up i go to every game i can,, other people arent so luky,, duz that mean they arent allowed an opinion or duz it mean theyre any less of a fan… NO it duznt matter n a thought you sed ed n all the bloggers were deluded,,, no1 told you you had to stay

  • 235 scdoty // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:10 PM

    @kingkev

    Am from Wallsend, however due to work commitments live in London. Go to more away games than home. would love to go to more however work stops this. Average around 10-13 games a season.

    Do i still qualify as living in a dream world, or am i now not aloud to support Newcastle?

  • 236 ToonDownSouth // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:11 PM

    toonfan09,

    I guess that scraps all the rumors of him in top secret meetings at SJP every day! Aha :D

    But thanks! I miss his constant chatter!

  • 237 kingkev9 // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:11 PM

    Gonz- it seems as though it does. When you live in Newcastle and go to the games you see a completely different picture. The posts on this blog are mostly based on fiction not facts. Team selections that defy belief. Comments based on champ manager player records not reality. Some of it is laughable

  • 238 mr.T...iote // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:12 PM

  • 239 torresmex90 // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:12 PM

    One guy you should all look out for if you are watching the Gold Cup is Andres Guardado, he’s a left winger for Mexico his club Deportivo La Coruna have just been relegated from Spain’s top league I believe. He’s brilliant and still pretty young, he loves to knock them in from 30 yards out. Thought I’d share since there was talk about Mexican players. I follow El Tri as passionately as I do the Toon

  • 242 gonz // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:14 PM

    “Also a intelligent person would know that ” ” are only used when quoting dialogue and that ‘ ‘ are used for quoting phrases.” might want to change those “” for ” hahahah, im only joking.

    No I don’t care about university rankings but I just resent the fact how I’m being called stupid because you went to Bath University after all the years of training and work I had to do as an undergraduate.

    I don’t have an issue with you mate.

  • 244 Stuart // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:14 PM

    Guess Im not a real fan than as I can’t afford to go to games at the minute.

    It’s not just fans making up players. We have been linked to them in the papers and other press.

    I assume you don’t read any news – which is fair enough, because it’s mostly garbage – but that is what people are basing these lineups on.

  • 250 gonz // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:17 PM

    This is all Gervinhos fault. We are all frustrated and turning on each other, but the day he signs you won’t see any animosity on this site for some time!

  • 253 nick_9 // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:18 PM

    Barton and Nolan appear to be the life and soul of the club, the captain and the vice-captain. Without those two I think it would be harder for new players to settle, every club needs a few big personalities and leaders. Who else do we have? Steven Taylor, Alan smith and that’s about it. It does stink of Ashley wanting to get rid of the big personalities or those who dare voice an opinion. Not a negger more of a realist, wasn’t happy with Carroll being sold but if that 30-35 million is bringing in possibly four or five players then great stuff. If enrique goes and we buy mbengue and Taylor once again great, all I wish is we retain a few personalities to try and keep the unity within the group. We need players who won’t sulk when times are hard and will drag the other of the siht with them. Barton and Nolan are these kind of players.

  • 254 kingkev9 // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:19 PM

    Stuart- At no point have I mentioned being a fan or not is related to going to the games, so read my posts carefully…..

    What I am saying is that the comments seem to come from people who clearly watch football on tv and play football games which clearly seems to affect their judgements of players.

    Compared to talking to lads who are season ticket holders their views are completely different to people on here. Most of their views make sense.

  • 255 kormeeNUFC // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:20 PM

    i love newcastle and i love in durham does that make me a plastic geordie then yes
    well tell that to the other 2000 darlo lads i share the train with to see the toon come off it lads we suppose to be singing off the same hym sheet

  • 256 Barras // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:20 PM

    Guys is there any further updates, since the agent sais he’s coming to us?

    Last thing I knew about the Gervinho situation was that they’re was no quotes from the agent.

    Any new developments fellow bloggers?

    Also any information on any other comings or goings would be welcome?

  • 257 Stuart // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:22 PM

    Haha, nothing new on anything Barras, still stuck in limbo.

  • 258 ToonDownSouth // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:22 PM

    Barras, nothing yet no.

    Richardson & Donaldson have signed new contracts with the club, and as rumored before, Spear has left by mutual consent.

    No developments on Taylor or Gervinho.

    Cayabe is playing a couple of games with France this week, one tonight I’m fairly sure.

  • 259 gonz // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:23 PM

    For sure Stuart, life of a footie fan!

  • 260 ToonDownSouth // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:24 PM

    Cwarr Twitter :

    For those expecting news re Gervinho there wont be any
    Gervinho has agreed to join #nufc Ashley & Llambias however are both abroad (not nufc related) & Ashley has to sign off all #nufc transfers
    News expected later (end) in the week when Ashley & Llambias return.

    Just copying and pasting ;)

  • 261 kingkev9 // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:25 PM

    Disposable cash Stuart? No, I just make sacrifices in other areas so I don’t miss games.

    Talk to lads who go week in and week out and they have a totally different view on things. A sensible one. Not a sky sports/champ manager view.

  • 262 ToonDownSouth // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:27 PM

    kingkev, a LOT of the guys here do go week in week out, home and away.

    Why make an account purely to slag off some fans?

    Big man

  • 263 Barras // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:28 PM

    Thanks for letting me know guys. Right ol’ nightmare, looks like this press conference might be true by the looks of things.

    However, my guess is that it will be on Friday instead of Thursday, giving Cabaye enough time to get back from France, and Gervinho to sort out contract details.

    Then boom…we announce the signings of those two. If were lucky Gervinho himself might spread some quotes for us before then to reduce the awkward suspense!

  • 264 ToonDownSouth // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:29 PM

    Barras, better not be! I leave for Turkey Friday lunchtime :|

  • 265 Stuart // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:30 PM

    Oh, so you do think you’re something special then eh kingkev?

    I’ve watched every single game this season. Fair one I wasnt at the games, but I reckon I have a very good view of things.

    You know, if you think everyone on here is so beneath or champ manager fantastics f**k off then. It seems there arent many people here who appreciate your opinions anyway.

  • 266 ToonDownSouth // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:30 PM

  • 268 scdoty // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:31 PM

    @kingkev

    Even if i did go to every game, chances are we would still have a differant opinion.

    The ammount of time ive stood there slagging off strola, even if he has just scored. The ammount of people stood around me that still praise him is shocking. But thats there opinion. Im happy with that.

  • 269 kingkev9 // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:34 PM

    Stop hurting my feelings Stuart by swearing at me through your posts. I actually find some of the posts funny

  • 270 Stuart // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:37 PM

    Whatever mate, you’re obviously an arrogant dick.

    I’ll go back to being a plastic fan.

    Anyone for Neymar?

  • 271 ToonDownSouth // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:40 PM

    I think he’d come here. Likes northern birds I hear. But he might have to sit on the bench for a while, what with all the superstars joining.

  • 272 Stuart // Jun 6, 2011 at 5:43 PM

    Pahaha, ahhh if that happens I feel for you mate!

    Internet cafe might just have to happen though.

  • 276 Brutooon // Jun 6, 2011 at 8:10 PM

    The only positive thing i can see if both Nolan and Barton are OUT is that Alan Pardew is going to bring better players AND YOUNGER than this two players.

    Barton waste 3 seasons and only play his football last season. He can’t keep his mouth shut up and let his football do the talking. Some players (french especially) dont want to join us because joey barton in the club

    Nolan is a good leader, he do score goals and gave a good captain but the way i see him (if we sign gervinho,maybe ganiero and zoggy) – there wont be any slot for him anymore at the midfield area. He is not a distribution type nor a a box to box player, he is just good during setpieces

  • 277 ASTORIA // Jun 6, 2011 at 8:58 PM

    How anybody on here can slag off Nolan is a joke and an absolute disgrace. He has been our best player for 2 years and the motivation behind our promotion and staying in the PL.

  • 278 stuart no9 // Jun 6, 2011 at 9:55 PM

    astoria, totally agree, if FCB is messing about with nolan and barton, and they both leave the club, we will be losing our team spirit( what is left of it anyway) also our stripping us of the experience we need , to go with the great players we are “supposingly” going to buy buying good players, great , but without experiance in the side , just wont work, you just have to look at arsenal this season to work that one out, and they have a much better, manager, owner , and know how, than we will ever have for the foreseeable future

  • 279 kingkev9 // Jun 6, 2011 at 10:23 PM

    Totally agree Astoria. Nolan was the highest scoring midfielder in the premiership last year. He is our heartbeat. Since he signed he has missed 12 premiership games, out of those 12 we have won ……… 0

  • 280 Marty-Toon // Jun 6, 2011 at 10:32 PM

    Don`t care what some of ye say but Losing Barton n Nolan is terrible business.You are losing guys with serious heart and ability and it`s not often you find them in the same package.
    Of course everyone has their price but these guys are worth payin better wages for,seldom injured or out for suspension.

  • 281 Marty-Toon // Jun 6, 2011 at 10:34 PM

    Astoria,King Kev and Stuart,SPOT ON LADS.
    These guys are NUFC

  • 282 Marty-Toon // Jun 6, 2011 at 10:35 PM

    BRUTOON???
    Better and younger players than NOLAN and JOEY???
    Who??How much??
    You`re havin a laugh mate

  • 283 Marty-Toon // Jun 6, 2011 at 10:37 PM

    And that Nobby isn`t a box to box player!!
    What a statement.
    He is the ultimate Box to Box,12 goals and assists and a great defensive player

  • 284 ASTORIA // Jun 6, 2011 at 10:43 PM

    Cheers lads, have to say I’m worried that our captain is so dismayed he will not sign a new deal…all is not well I feel?!

  • 285 ddmacker // Jun 7, 2011 at 3:08 PM

    Maybe there’s more to this than meets the eye. In a team that started off with a good strenght and spirit the owner (in his wisdom) sells the top scorer and now wants to get rid of our best atacking and defensive midfielders? Whats next sell Colo & Salor? That’ll get the heart out of the team!! We get RELEGATED AGAIN. Replace the best players with BIG French names who can’t speak english and run NUFC as a TAX LOSS. Thank you Mr Ashly I look forward to another season of PAIN.
